So I know I have asked a lot about my type before but I always wonder I am being objective about things. I am going to do a self description independent of the type descriptions as not to bias my own description.
General demeanor: I am a very hard person to get to know. It's hard to open up because I don't want my business spread around so I say tidbits of personal information to different people. Usually when I talk to people, it's usually in terms of ideas rather than anything too personal (unless I am stressed out and ready to explode). Along with the privateness, I am not very emotive or affectionate (more like a cat) unless something is really bugging me. Even then, I seemed to have a delayed reaction to my emotions and have to analyze them to figure out why something's upsetting me. Also, I can be highly stubborn because I hate to be controlled by others and if people try to control or deceive me,I retaliate against them until they stop bothering me. Because I hate it, I try my best not to control others and let them do what they need to do.
Approach to problems: I can be very type A but very calm. Any major problems related to my goals or concerning me, I freak the heck out until it gets fixed. I think of many solutions, research, ask people, and analyze all the answers until I am positive that's what I want to do. Because of this, my dad considers me the problem solver of the family. Other than that, I can stay relatively calm to other people's problems and can usually see many courses of action very clearly for them. However, I try to stay out of it and detach from it unless I see someone really struggling. I end up getting in the middle of things and end up in the therapist role. People end up telling me their problems more than I to them and I hold secrets from a lot of random people.
Social situations: I like to be around people but if I don't think I have much to add to the group, I detach and go into my head. High energy and high conflict environments drain me and I have to get away because it disturbs my autonomy.
