    1.) What is your MBTI type?

    INTP

    2.) If you ever thought you were a different type, explain why.

    Still think i might be an ENTP. Not sure. Definatly always been INTP but seem to be becoming ENTP.

    3.) What are your percents? Are they on a 0-100% scale or 50-100% scale?

    no idea. I think my T was very high. My function results were Ti Ne Ni so high intuition i guess. Not overly P.

    4.) What is your enneagram type (if known)?

    5w4 not w6 at all good 7 and 8

    5.) What types are you attracted for for friendship and why?

    Well my 2 best mates are ISTP and ESFP. The ISTP i great at times but can be overly cocky and a bit boring and depressive at times. Gets really ESTP asshole -ish. ESFP, love the guy to bits. Really entertaining. He can be a bit ENFP at times which is great and he can be suprisingly smart. Took me ages of hanging about with him at school untill we clicked. one week in summer where all our mates where gone (including the ISTP who is both are best mates) we ended up hanging about out of boredom and had an amazing week. Never a dull moment. And his familly were away on holiday so i just stayed at his.

    I want to meet some ENTP and INTJ as well. One guy i think was ENTP i vaguely knew was great except he was sort of my rival in maths and was excedingly cocky and as ENTP go not very funny so i never got to know him well.

    6.) What types are you attracted to for romantic relations and why?

    Eh, not sure. Not very experienced in this area. I think ENFx. Most girls have talk to me first so being a social retard they kinda have to be ExFx and unless there smart i'll just ignore them so more commonly N as Ns fit with my idea of smart.

    7.) What types do you generally enjoy working with and why?

    TPs are cool. lots of fun. Any one not overly strict and disciplined. Or socially controlling.

    8.) What does your room/house look like?

    Blue with space shapes on the walls in silver. I got it painted when i was 11 and its not changed. Lots of stuff on shelves. Everythings somewhere but not really anywhere specific. Like books on that shelf but in no order at all.

    9.) How imaginative do you consider yourself and what are you typically imaginative about?

    Extremely. Everything. I like to put my self in situations in my head. Like JJ my avatar i think what i would do in the situations he gets in skins. Also pictures. I doodle all over the place. I love to write riffs as well or chord sequances. or think of games and stories. Especially jokes and funny but philisophical stories.

    10.) What can you relate to about your type descriptions?

    The lonerism of an INTP. The inside your head and the observer part of an INTP. Also the being delibritly weird and absent minded all the time so when i am genuinly like that no one try to stop me.

    11.) What other types can you relate to well?

    ENTP. INTJ. ISTP.

    12.) What are you satisfied about in life?

    Not much right now as i just missed my school talent show and last year prom which looked awsome to go to the funeral of a grandad i barely knew.

    I got the main part in the school musical though! Guys and Dolls! I'm very proud of that as i had acted before the audition!

    On a bigger scale i'm not sure. I'm at that stage in life where i'm just waiting for shit. Waiting for exams, to do a gap year hopefully or go to uni.
    I should probably get off my ass and get a job but i haven't bee bothered to yet.

    13.) What do you want to do as a career/what are you currently doing as a career?

    Something math related. or science. Want to do Maths and the Philosophy and Logic of Science at the University of St Andrews.

    1. What do you when you get stressed to get unstressed?

    Listen to Linkin Park loudly. Works wonders. Also play guitar and walk (or run).

    2. What advice would you give to the majority of people that would make life easier for them? (Try to be somewhat specific)

    Relax. Stop caring so much. And just do stuff for the hell of it. I need to take that advice myself.

    3. How would you describe your "social role" in your group of friends?

    The smart ass. And the organizer as there all SPs! Just generally the smart one. And recently the funny and mad one.

    4. When presented with a (somewhat challenging) problem, how do you solve it?

    Think about it. Sometimes experiment randomly. Just play with it.

    5. Do you have pets? If so, what n' how many? AND, how do you treat your pets?

    Nope. My familly have a cat and two rabbit oh and fish. It took be 4 and 9 weeks to notice the rabbits and fish. The cat i hate because it leaves hairs all over the PC chair.
    I can barely stand humans never mind less intelligent things like animals!
    Cats might grow on me.

    6. What's one thing that really annoys you in other people, and why?

    Fussyness especially in language. The point of language is to communicate a point so as long as you have understood the point why does it matter that i didn't say the fucking T!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!

    Also people who continuinly try to talk to you when your being unresponsive. Take the hint at this moment in time i am not in a talkitive mood. Yes i like and yes i will hapily talk to you for hours later when i am in the mood but right now no.

    Also when people talk about when your around to draw you into conversation.

    7. Left or Right?

    Right. Handed and political. Mind you living in the UK being right wing probably means just being centre to all lot of people. I want to train myself into amberdexity as well. be useful for music and just to do crazy things like circus skills.

    8. How do you have fun?

    I think or do crazy random stuff. Going to bed and just thinking is great. No wonder i'm always so tired since it takes about 2 hours min to stop thinking.
    Crazy stuff is cool as well.

    9. Do you consider your inner world structured, and if so, how? Basically, describe your inner world (or die!).

    Eh. Well yeah. I have loads of shit in my head. Its not so much structured but its definatly rich. There shitloads of stuff in there.

    10. How does music affect your emotional state? Do you listen to specific music in certain moods, is it especially nostalgic for you, etc. Do you consider music as having a personal meaning assigned by you, or a universal meaning that you figure out?

    Its about the only way i get emotional. Every good song has an interesting emotional and/or philosophical point to make. It causes me to think emotionally. Which is normally scary but in music its strangely relaxings and interestings.

    11. How annoyed are you at the positioning of my post, and the work-in-progressness of it?

    Not at all. work-in-progressness is good as then i can answer more refined questions later and compare later answers and shit.

    12. What are your "secret desires"?

    Eh. Most aren't secret. To be more understood by a few people. Sexual desires. To be funny and witty. To achieve something.

    13. How do think people view you when they first meet you?

    Quiet. Shy. Unsure. Honest. Cruel at times? Hopefully funny as i like being funny.

    14. What do you feel about introverts, and why?

    I like them as long as they don't relay on me at all. I can't stand people who need sheperded as sometimes Introverts do but the more self confident but quiet ones are amazing as they don't take silence as a negative thing like a lot of people do.

    15. What do you feel about extr(a/o)verts, and why?

    There good as long as they don't socially manipulate. I hate being overpowered by people. /but extraverts never really need helped at all which i like.

    16. What do perceive are the differences between male and females of your type?

    Never met a female INTP so no idea. Their extremely rare are they not?

    17. How annoyed are you at the vagueness of my questions?

    No it lets me got off topic more and explore the questions. Also it means everyones answers are more different and funny as they are percieved differently.

    18. What is the most common misconception people have of you?

    That i know what i want and how to get it. I think even i have that misconception of myself a lot. I think i do but i rarely do.

    Also that i have no emotions. Sometimes things hurt me and no one notices including me. And when i do i don't know what to do about it. I might not notice emotions as much but i still do and when i do i don't know what to do.

    19. What is the biggest thing about yourself that you hate?

    indecisiveness. I can't choose and stick with a decision.

    20. What is the biggest thing about yourself that you love?

    My wit. Its annoying because i can only be funny when i don't try but when i start to be funny i start trying.

    21. What questions would you ask for this?

    What are your strongest functions. Like mine are Ti Ne Ni. I don't have any Te. Why is that? how is it related to being an INTP?

    22. What is one thing that people don't know about you?

    The real answer to this question.

    23. Would you date Costrin?

    No.

    24. How and why did you pick the avatar that you did?

    JJs my favourite character in skins my favourite show. He is kinda like me and he is so funny at times.

    Watch skins its the best show ever!

    25. YO EAGLE IMA BEAT YOU

    Don't beat eagles there cool.

    26. How do you generally meet new friends?

    Eh they talk to me because i'm alone and don't know anybody.

    Or because there new and i'm not so having been in their situation i make the effort to say hi!

    27. What are some of your most important values?

    Truth. Honesty. Saying what you think.

    28.

    Yeah whites a cool colour i prefer silver though.

    29. What are your mornings generally like?

    I'm normally dead. Untill i wake up fully i'm a zombie. Then i'm full of excitement. Sometimes i just stay zombie.


    Like your INTP profile btw costrin!!!!!!!!

    1.) What is your MBTI type?
    INFP

    2.) If you ever thought you were a different type, explain why.
    INTP: Just because I make stupid mistakes where I come across as abrasive / rude to people. My reaction to these situations, however, proves to me very much that I am an F.

    3.) What are your percents? Are they on a 0-100% scale or 50-100% scale?
    I: 85%
    N: 80%
    F: 35%
    P: 90%

    4.) What is your enneagram type (if known)?
    9, with a 1 wing.

    5.) What types are you attracted for for friendship and why?
    None in particular. I get on well with most types.

    6.) What types are you attracted to for romantic relations and why?
    Again, this is a hard question to answer. MBTI type is not something that draws me to someone.

    7.) What types do you generally enjoy working with and why?
    Most SJs can be nice to work with, because they're very much able to get things done. SPs add a nice bit of spontaneity and are very friendly, so I like working with them too. I find it hard to work with EXFJs sometimes, because they have this nasty habit of being very demanding without realizing it, and I don't like standing up to people.

    8.) What does your room/house look like?
    Clothes litter the floor, there is a Sprite bottle full of water, and it generally looks like a giant tornado just came through here.

    9.) How imaginative do you consider yourself and what are you typically imaginative about?
    I'm somewhat imaginative. I have a running narrative in my head, and I place myself in it sometimes when I'm bored. It's fun in there!

    10.) What can you relate to about your type descriptions?
    I relate only basically to my type description. I much prefer to just take the functions as they are; Introverted Feeling means that I have values and care, really care, about what people close to me think about me. Extraverted Intuition gives me the ability to see new possibilities, and probably makes me come across as weird to more stable people.

    11.) What other types can you relate to well?
    INTP

    12.) What are you satisfied about in life?
    I like my life in general. Nothing really stands out here; there's always room for improvement, and saying that you're satisfied means that you are happy with where you are; I want to keep improving in all areas of my life.

    13.) What do you want to do as a career/what are you currently doing as a career?
    I am currently a resident advisor at Ohio State. I plan on being a counselor of some sort.
    "Can you set me free from this dark inner world? Save me now, last beats in the soul.."

    Fonewearl and proud of it!

    I (85%) - N (80%) - F (35%) - P (90%)
    O: 94% C: 18% E: 21% A: 94% N: 38%

    So I decided to actually read some of these responses.

    I must say that the responses to questions 17, 23, 25 and 28 are the best.

    For BlackCat:

    1.) What is your MBTI type?

    INfP, I guess.

    2.) If you ever thought you were a different type, explain why.

    Well, I thought I was INTP for a long time, and I usually test as INTP, but I've been recovering from a really bad time in my life, and now I'm starting to think I'm INFP. Depression usually messes things like that up.

    3.) What are your percents? Are they on a 0-100% scale or 50-100% scale?

    Well today I am: I-95 N-100 F-58 P-79 (on a 100% scale).

    4.) What is your enneagram type (if known)?

    4w5...I think.

    5.) What types are you attracted for for friendship and why?

    I like SPs a lot. They're just really fun and help me relax. All my SP friends are the friends with the least amount of bullshit. It's pretty awesome.

    6.) What types are you attracted to for romantic relations and why?

    Usually introverts. I feel like they are less intimidating. Lately I've felt pulled toward NFs for some reason. I'm barely an F so I think it would be okay.

    7.) What types do you generally enjoy working with and why?

    Ps. They're usually more laid back. Strong Js stress me out sometimes.

    8.) What does your room/house look like?

    It's a mess, but not disgusting.

    9.) How imaginative do you consider yourself and what are you typically imaginative about?

    I'm always thinking up new dances or songs in my head. Or making up stories...even though I don't write. haha

    10.) What can you relate to about your type descriptions?

    I remember reading one type description that said INFPs' primary concern is finding their meaning in life, and finding a way to help humanity. YES. I am also a good listener, thoughtful, considerate, a perfectionist, yet laid-back, and I prefer getting along with people over conflict. haha

    BUT I am not overly sensitive and I actually like logic.

    11.) What other types can you relate to well?

    I relate to other introverts a lot better. I know that a lot of people are into the whole N vs. S thing, but I don't really have a problem with that.

    12.) What are you satisfied about in life?

    I have a hard time saying it sometimes, but I truly am blessed. I can feel God making changes in my life, and that's exciting.

    13.) What do you want to do as a career/what are you currently doing as a career?

    I'm a Japanese major, and I want to teach English in Japan for a few years after I graduate. After that, I'm not sure.


    For Costrin:

    1. What do you when you get stressed to get unstressed?

    Complain and bitch and moan.

    2. What advice would you give to the majority of people that would make life easier for them?

    Chill out. Serve other people.

    3. How would you describe your "social role" in your group of friends?

    I'm the quiet one. I can go for hours just sitting and listening to people, but I'll throw in a hilarious random comment once in a while. I'm also the major confidant (which is cool, but can get exhausting).

    4. When presented with a (somewhat challenging) problem, how do you solve it?

    I pray about it, and then think about my various options. I try to go with what is both logical AND what feels right. I also ask for advice if applicable.

    5. Do you have pets? If so, what n' how many? AND, how do you treat your pets?

    I have 2 doggies and 3 kitties. I like to play with them, but not take care of them. That's what moms are for.

    6. What's one thing that really annoys you in other people, and why?

    Do I really only get to pick one? Dishonesty is number 1, closely followed by extreme arrogance.

    7. Left or Right?


    Both? I'm right-handed but I do a lot of other things with my left.

    8. How do you have fun?

    Conversation, driving around, listening to music, dancing, playing video games, reading, watching mindless television.

    9. Do you consider your inner world structured, and if so, how? Basically, describe your inner world (or die!).

    Uh, no. Not structured at all. So unstructured that it is hard to describe. I guess I will have to die.

    10. How does music affect your emotional state? Do you listen to specific music in certain moods, is it especially nostalgic for you, etc. Do you consider music as having a personal meaning assigned by you, or a universal meaning that you figure out?

    I usually listen to music that fits my current mood. Listening to music that doesn't fit my mood can get irritating. However, if I'm feeling pretty neutral, the music I'm listening to can affect my mood.

    11. How annoyed are you at the positioning of my post, and the work-in-progressness of it?

    It's cool.

    12. What are your "secret desires"?

    I want to get married really bad and have kids. I'm kind of embarrassed to tell anyone in real life about it because I'm 21 and I've never even had a boyfriend.

    13. How do think people view you when they first meet you?

    People think I'm really shy and quiet. They're right.

    14. What do you feel about introverts, and why?



    15. What do you feel about extr(a/o)verts, and why?

    They're sometimes hard for me to get along with, but it totally depends on the individual. The extroverts who really don't get introverts (and don't even make an attempt to understand) are the ones that are hard to keep up with. But most extroverts are super awesome.

    16. What do perceive are the differences between male and females of your type?

    Since I'm borderline T/F, it's kind of hard to answer. Guys are expected to be thinkers, girls are expected to be feelers, blah blah blah. I guess I don't have a better answer than that right now.

    17. How annoyed are you at the vagueness of my questions?

    ...too...much...thinking...jk. I'm doing alright.

    18. What is the most common misconception people have of you?

    People never know when I'm serious, or when I'm being sarcastic...apparently I'm hard to read. People also misread my facial expressions and the things I say all the time...

    19. What is the biggest thing about yourself that you hate?

    Well, I wish I was more extroverted. I feel like that would make my life a lot better.

    20. What is the biggest thing about yourself that you love?

    I've gone through so many things and I still try to do my best. Sometimes I feel like my family members cop out and use our sucky circumstances as an excuse.

    21. What questions would you ask for this?

    I really don't know.

    22. What is one thing that people don't know about you?

    It's hard to explain...I feel like my outward appearance doesn't match up with my personality very well. So I feel like there's this strange disconnect between my mind and my body, and that it affects the way I relate to others. I don't really get it myself...so I haven't really told anyone about it.

    23. Would you date Costrin?

    I already posted in that thread.

    24. How and why did you pick the avatar that you did?

    pictures for sad children. I suggest you check it out.

    25. YO EAGLE IMA BEAT YOU


    That's not nice.

    26. How do you generally meet new friends?

    Through other friends. I am lazy.

    27. What are some of your most important values?

    I try to love others. I think that's the most important one.

    28.

    STOP MESSING WITH MY MIND COSTRIN!!!

    29. What are your mornings generally like?

    I hate mornings and usually want to kill myself until I get caffeine into my system.

    Trying this one more time. Someone keeps interrupting me when I try to answer the Costrin Q part.

    1. What do you when you get stressed to get unstressed?


    Talk to a friend, surf the net, read... something low-key.

    2. What advice would you give to the majority of people that would make life easier for them? (Try to be somewhat specific)

    Don't be afraid to articulate what you want/need. Don't be afraid to achieve it. And don't be afraid after you get it. (I'm still working on all these things.)

    3. How would you describe your "social role" in your group of friends?

    Comic relief.

    4. When presented with a (somewhat challenging) problem, how do you solve it?


    I just do. And then I spend time trying to nail down why it's the right solution.

    5. Do you have pets? If so, what n' how many? AND, how do you treat your pets?


    One awesome chihuahua named Bolero. She's my baby.

    6. What's one thing that really annoys you in other people, and why?

    Hypocrisy.

    7. Left or Right?

    Always left, though I'm right-handed. Leftish is the way to go.

    8. How do you have fun?

    Nothing specific. I always have fun. I find amusement in even the most unfun things. I derive enjoyment from the absurd.

    9. Do you consider your inner world structured, and if so, how? Basically, describe your inner world (or die!).

    Definitely not structured. Random and chaotic, even. I tend to take stock of patterns. Mostly, I have a sense of humor about everything.

    10. How does music affect your emotional state? Do you listen to specific music in certain moods, is it especially nostalgic for you, etc. Do you consider music as having a personal meaning assigned by you, or a universal meaning that you figure out?


    Music is very important to me deeply personal. I listen to certain music when I'm in a particular mood. Also, certain music can cause a particular mood in me. I have a constant soundtrack in my head.

    11. How annoyed are you at the positioning of my post, and the work-in-progressness of it?

    I don't care one bit.

    12. What are your "secret desires"?


    Nothing secret. Happiness, success, love. Pretty common stuff I guess. Also desperate to be on a game show, but even that's not very secret.

    13. How do think people view you when they first meet you?

    Nice? I hope so, anyway.

    14. What do you feel about introverts, and why?

    Uh, depends on the introvert? The only problem I've had with "introverts" as a group is that sometimes I mistake their introversion for dislike of me. That's my own issue, though. Not theirs.

    15. What do you feel about extr(a/o)verts, and why?


    Again, depends on the extrovert. Sometimes, I wish uber-extroverts would just stfu for a couple of minutes. Again, my problem. Not theirs.

    16. What do perceive are the differences between male and females of your type?

    I don't. More than just about any other type, ENTPs don't seem to give a damn about traditional gender roles. I'm an ENTP female, but I exhibit some typically "male" behaviors. For example, I swear like a sailor, am sexually assertive, and am rather ambitious. Though these may be "male" traits, they're mine. All ENTPs I know have them and are like this.

    17. How annoyed are you at the vagueness of my questions?


    I don't care. I'm basically answering whatever I want anyway.

    18. What is the most common misconception people have of you?


    On the forum, some people think I'm mean, cold, and/or a J. This is so far from me it's crazy.

    19. What is the biggest thing about yourself that you hate?


    Indecisiveness, lack of willpower, and default laziness. And I'd like to have a good body, which has something to do with said lack of willpower and laziness.

    20. What is the biggest thing about yourself that you love?

    Any of Chuck Klosterman's 23.

    22. What is one thing that people don't know about you?

    26. How do you generally meet new friends?


    Depends. I don't have trouble making acquaintances. But I make very, very few lifelong friends. Mostly through school.

    Finally got around to answering Costrin's questions:

    1. What do you when you get stressed to get unstressed?

    Many different things, some of which are ill-advised and actually worsen my stress. The things which do work are:

    Spending quiet time on my own.
    Sleep.
    Self-hypnosis/meditation.
    Spending time outdoors, observing the environment.
    Physical exercise or activity.

    A lot depends on the causes and nature of the stress. Like most INFJs, I get stressed quite easily, so I have learned a number of different coping techniques.

    2. What advice would you give to the majority of people that would make life easier for them? (Try to be somewhat specific)

    Laughter is the best medicine ever invented. Life is often absurd and a good sense of humour is essential. Look around: the happiest people don't seem to take themselves very seriously.

    3. How would you describe your "social role" in your group of friends?

    The counsellor/adviser/sage. I have a head full of trivia and "wise sayings", so friends contact me for obscure tidbits of information, or for some advice on their current dilemmas. I'm a good listener and I like to help people feel better about themselves and their lives. In tribal societies, I would have been the shaman.

    4. When presented with a (somewhat challenging) problem, how do you solve it?

    Depends on the amount of time available. If it's urgent, I'll rely on gut instinct or my experience. Given more time, I'll study it carefully to absorb the relevant facts. If it's outside my experience or current knowledge, I'll do some research and reading around the problem. Then I'll hand it over to my Intuition and do something else instead, that stops me from consciously thinking about the problem. My intuition will come up with a solution anytime from a few minutes to several days later, depending on the difficulty of the problem. Usually, a good night's sleep is sufficient. Even if it's not a complete solution, I'll gain some useful insights which will help.

    5. Do you have pets? If so, what n' how many? AND, how do you treat your pets?

    Two cats (brother and sister Russian Blue pedigrees) - and one dog - an elderly toy poodle we look after for my partner's mother, who is now in a rest home. I treat them as part of my family, without losing sight of the fact that they are animals and have their own individual needs.

    6. What's one thing that really annoys you in other people, and why?

    Bullying. I detest it in all of its forms, from physical aggression to intellectual superiority to workplace politics. As for why, among other reasons, I believe that after thousands of years of so-called civilisation, we should know better than to attempt to dominate other people to compensate for our own weaknesses (and bullies are always weak in some way). I do not tolerate attempts by others to bully me and try to to stand up for others who are being bullied.

    7. Left or Right?

    Right. I prefer to be right!

    8. How do you have fun?

    Anything that makes me laugh. Watching good TV or movies. Sharing good times with other people. Travelling to new places. Listening to music/dancing/singing. Playing games.

    9. Do you consider your inner world structured, and if so, how? Basically, describe your inner world (or die!).

    Loosely structured. There are many different areas inside - some of them familiar and civilised, others dangerous and chaotic, many Iíve yet to explore. My inner world is infinite and ever-fascinating, a swirling kaleidoscope of alternate universes and a place where magic is possible. Specific enough for you?

    10. How does music affect your emotional state? Do you listen to specific music in certain moods, is it especially nostalgic for you, etc. Do you consider music as having a personal meaning assigned by you, or a universal meaning that you figure out?

    My emotional state is strongly affected by music. I choose specific music according to the mood I wish to experience, in other words I use it to alter my moods. I always have music playing inside my head and have a personal musical library of thousands of tunes. Music is both personal and universal, I couldnít begin to distinguish where one starts and the other ends.

    11. How annoyed are you at the positioning of my post, and the work-in-progressness of it?

    Itís probably deliberate - Iím sure you have your reasons, and I donít find it annoying.

    12. What are your "secret desires"?

    If I revealed them here, they would no longer be secret! However, I will say this: I desire to know secrets.

    13. How do think people view you when they first meet you?

    Friendly, polite, maybe a little eccentric.

    14. What do you feel about introverts, and why?

    We rock! Introverts start out at a disadvantage in our hyper-yang modern Western society, but if we survive all the noise and chaos with our sanity intact, then we become a force to be reckoned with once weíve gained experience and maturity.

    15. What do you feel about extr(a/o)verts, and why?

    Very loud and busy. Can drain my batteries very rapidly, but I need them to help me navigate and understand the Extraverted world we have to live in. They start to suffer more at mid-life (poor things) and need us introverts to help them through it!

    16. What do perceive are the differences between male and females of your type?

    I donít know enough INFJs to comment. I imagine that superficially, INFJ women may find it easier to fit in, since they present a more typically ďfeminineĒ exterior than do males.

    17. How annoyed are you at the vagueness of my questions?

    Whatís this concern youíve got with annoying people? I assume you deliberately chose vague questions to allow for the widest possible range of responses. If you want me to be annoyed, I can be - Grrrr! Argghhh! - see!

    18. What is the most common misconception people have of you?

    That I am a Thinking type. I have a high IQ (for what thatís worth) and work in an intellectually demanding job (forensic scientist), so itís a natural mistake to make.

    Thinking types enjoy a good old argument (they call it ďdebatingĒ) but I prefer harmony and agreement. This use to stress me out a lot, but Iíve now developed my auxiliary Fe to the point where I can use it to influence and persuade others, in lieu of arguing my case.

    19. What is the biggest thing about yourself that you hate?

    I have a lot of inertia (OK, laziness) to overcome before I can get started most days. Also I can get so caught up in my inner world that I sometimes neglect my real-world responsibilities, such as paying bills on time or remembering appointments.

    20. What is the biggest thing about yourself that you love?

    My intuition, without a doubt. Until I discovered MBTI, I never had a name for my dominant introverted intuition, but itís always been there for me. All I have to do is remember to pay attention and listen for its advice and suggestions, and my life tends to go the way it is meant to. Among other things, my Ni gives me a kind of ďdanger senseĒ, which has actually saved my life a few times. I always check with it before boarding an aircraft - if it ďpingedĒ a strong sense of danger at me, then I would not board the plane.

    21. What questions would you ask for this?

    It would take me quite a while to come up with a list I was satisfied with. All I can say is that my questions would not be the same as yours.

    22. What is one thing that people don't know about you?

    I used to have a Saturday job at a telephone dating agency.

    23. Would you date Costrin?

    Yes, if he cut his hair short!

    24. How and why did you pick the avatar that you did?

    My current avatar is Professor Pat Pending from the old Wacky Races cartoon. My avatars always seem to reflect the processes/archetypes which are most active in my life. At the moment, I am using my Thinking functions more than usual. The Prof represents my child-like tertiary Ti.

    25. YO EAGLE IMA BEAT YOU

    Is that some kind of secret code? Do I win a prize if I crack it?

    26. How do you generally meet new friends?

    Either at work or through other friends. Also, I have quite a few good internet buddies I have never actually met in person.

    27. What are some of your most important values?

    In order of priority:

    Compassion
    Curiosity
    Courage

    28.

    28 is the number of the house where my best friend used to live in the street I grew up in. His mother and mine are still best friends even though they now live some distance apart. In numerology, 28 reduces as follows: 2+8=10, 1+0=1. The notation for this is 28/10/1. I have absolutely no idea what that means, but Iím sure you can surf the net to find out more.

    29. What are your mornings generally like?

    Mornings are the bane of my life. I donít do mornings, at least not without copious quantities of caffeine. Morning people are quite scary - how can they be so chirpy and active when Iím still feeling so sleepy and sluggish?

    listen to music, watch or listen to something funny, talk to cool people, play games

    "Don't wish for a better day. Be glad and use the one you're in." -- Rebecca St. James

    3. How would you describe your "social role" in your group of friends?
    I don't really have a group of friends right now, but my "social role" has usually been the entertainer who picks his spots.

    4. When presented with a (somewhat challenging) problem, how do you solve it?
    Think of what has worked before in a similar situation, otherwise just trial and error

    5. Do you have pets? If so, what n' how many? AND, how do you treat your pets?
    No.

    6. What's one thing that really annoys you in other people, and why?
    People making assumptions and generalizations all the time instead of getting to know people as individuals.

    7. Left or Right?
    Right.

    8. How do you have fun?
    I listen to music, watch movies, drive in the country, dink around on the internet, play with my son, go out to eat, make up goofy songs, do audio editing, write reviews of tv shows, make music charts, go to baseball games, go to theme parks, write stuff, chat with people, and of course, fill out surveys.

    9. Do you consider your inner world structured, and if so, how? Basically, describe your inner world (or die!).
    No, and what? What is my inner world? We're all gonna die eventually, so you don't scare me!

    10. How does music affect your emotional state? Do you listen to specific music in certain moods, is it especially nostalgic for you, etc. Do you consider music as having a personal meaning assigned by you, or a universal meaning that you figure out?
    It makes me feel kinda funny. Like when we used to climb the rope in gym class. Yes and yes.

    11. How annoyed are you at the positioning of my post, and the work-in-progressness of it?
    Not at all.

    12. What are your "secret desires"?
    Bougal, scantilyclad, Tallulah, kyuuei, Sunshine, Lookin4theBestNU, beyondaurora, Luna, prplchknz, nightning, Colors, Mempy, Jen, Ivy, Hmm, LadyJaye, shortnsweet, Warm, Sunny, Firelie, Haphazard, TinyArmy, FemmeUrbane, Cenomite...errrrrr...sorry I guess none of those are really secret.

    13. How do think people view you when they first meet you?
    It seems to be totally dependent on the situation. I am an unintentional chameleon.

    14. What do you feel about introverts, and why?
    Some cool, some not. Same as the Es. It's cool that we're not all up in your face.

    15. What do you feel about extr(a/o)verts, and why?
    See #14. Sometimes I want somebody up in my face. Preferably a hot chick.

    16. What do perceive are the differences between male and females of your type?
    This is a toughy, because I don't know who I've known in real life is my type. Going by this forum, where there is a pretty small sample of ISFPs, the males seem a bit more easy-going and not as easily offended, maybe a little more open-minded. For instance, female ISFPs here have started topics complaining about sensor bias and asking how could anyone be a Republican, whereas I haven't seen any male ISFPs start any divisive topics like that. But then, all my topics are awesome, so it sorta skews things. I dunno.

    17. How annoyed are you at the vagueness of my questions?
    Only slightly. Because I understand you are trying to gather info for profiles, so some of it has to be vague I guess.

    18. What is the most common misconception people have of you?
    That I don't care whether I'm invited or included in activities. It is true that my life goes on either way, but I enjoy being part of things a lot of the time, and I feel happy when I am asked, even if I ultimately end up not participating.

    19. What is the biggest thing about yourself that you hate?
    My bad habits.

    20. What is the biggest thing about yourself that you love?
    My adaptability.

    21. What questions would you ask for this?
    Are you a hot female? If so, will you send me pics and/or video of yourself?

    22. What is one thing that people don't know about you?
    I can be quite superstitious, especially related to the outcomes of sports events.

    23. Would you date Costrin?
    No, he's a bit too mannish.

    24. How and why did you pick the avatar that you did?
    The first one I picked for this site was a big juicy cheeseburger, I picked it because it makes an instant impression. My current one I picked because I was looking for something blue and hot to represent my Gauntlet team.

    25. YO EAGLE IMA BEAT YOU
    I dunno, Eagle may be quiet but he may be quite tough.

    26. How do you generally meet new friends?
    Through work or online, or someone introduces me to them.

    27. What are some of your most important values?
    Love God, love your neighbor, try to be the best father I can be. Oh, and those new mini sirloin burgers from Jack in the Box.

    28.
    Your mama's so fat, whenever she puts on a yellow dress, people yell "TAXI!"

    29. What are your mornings generally like?
    (work in progress)
    Wow, you answered the question for me!

    I think I will be lazy and paste in a post from another thread. (in fact it's the second time I've re-used it, I'm getting a lot of mileage out of this post.):


    Speaking of mornings, that's when the tactics begin at my place. More often than not, I wake up late and have immediate decisions to make about how much time I have to get ready for work and get my son to school, and have to decide in what order do I do these tasks to try to make both of us as on time as possible. Some days I realize I can still get Morgan to school in time for breakfast, so I focus entirely on crowbarring him out of bed and staying on him, badgering him hard until he's dressed and ready, I just throw on some pants and my shoes and whatever shirt I slept in, and then I drive him to school and drop him off before coming back home to jump in the shower and get myself ready. Sometimes I end up late anyway, but at least one of us was on time. Other days I realize I'm not going to get him there in time for breakfast so I let him take a little more time to get going in his unhurrying style and focus on getting myself ready so I get him breakfast on the go, get him there just a couple minutes late and get myself to work on time because I'm ready to go straight from the school to my office.

    Once I get to the office, I have to scan my surroundings, check what stacks of paperwork I've been given, where and what I left off on the previous day and what I need to start doing before the phone calls start coming in. The phone calls themselves are another opportunity for tactics, as I've got to catch on to the scammers, decide whether a call for the owners or GMs is legit or just sales call, take sales numbers from the managers, get the managers who need to perform tasks on their store computers to take care of those, pay attention to whether the tasks I'm having my computer take care of are working properly, all the while not losing track of the work I started doing before the phone rang and be able to pick up where I left off or decide that work needs to be set aside to deal with a different problem or task that has arisen and needs a solution now.

    In addition to that, I'll add that I usually have a pure protein bar for breakfast, at which time I take my blood pressure and heart rate medications and my multivitamin. Then I have a morning snack of a smoothie or almonds or a packaged meat snack around 2 hours after breakfast.
