    1.) What is your MBTI type?

    People think of me as INFJ, and given how mbti is laid out/'defined', it's the best bet.

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

    I tested as INTJ in my early 20's. Also entertained the notion of INFP a while back, but after interacting with some INFP's in real life, decided it wasn't at all what I was.

    As far as the 'why' - I've never really related to any one type description, and also depending on what method I would use to determine my type, I could end up with multiple possibilities. Which method is the 'right' one? [doesn't matter in the end]

    I think many things/behaviors commonly associated with a particular type or a specific function shouldn't be - they're more 'human' traits shared by all to a certain extent, based on situation, or are wholly outside of mbti. Or are behaviors that have absolutely nothing to do with cognitive functioning.


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

    I has always been high - maybe in the 70's or 80's, N is typically in the 60's or 70's, F in the 50's or 60's (although in early 20's, it would have been the reverse), J in the 60's - 80's, maybe. Of course that's just based on dichotomy tests which may not be terribly accurate to begin with.

    4.) What is your enneagram type (if known)?
    1w9 makes the most sense at this point. At times in the past I thought 4w5, but after being on this forum for a while, and seeing 4w5's in action...I just doubt that's me.

    5.) What types are you attracted for for friendship and why?
    Pretty much all of my close friends - those I feel I 'connect' well with - are N's. Several INFJ's, a few INxP's, a few ENTJ's, and a few ENFP's.

    6.) What types are you attracted to for romantic relations and why?
    ENxx's. They're able to bring me out of my shell, and provide what I feel to be a needed balance/complement, which I haven't really experienced with fellow IN's. The chemistry is much more likely to 'sizzle' with EN's.

    7.) What types do you generally enjoy working with and why?
    I can't say I've thought about it, or really break people down at work into 'types' I work well with or not. I think I'm able to get along with most types in the working environment.

    8.) What does your room/house look like?
    Very clean and well organized. I enjoy decorating it too!

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

    Oh, I dunno. I don't think I'm super imaginative, but don't think I'm unimaginative either. Somewhere in the middle. I can be good at silly repartee and just making up random things about people , like in a commentator way, but I've never been imaginative in the more stereotypical 'I daydream about unicorns and imagine myself on another planet' sense. I'll go on mental flights of fancy regarding my life and relationships and playing things out in my head, and stuff like that. Another random example - I enjoy sci-fi books, so it would be likely for me to ponder futuristic life. But it's always more of a realistic 'projection' with a sociological slant. And just in general, the way I approach my life -- there aren't many limits.

    10.) What can you relate to about your type descriptions?
    Eh...it really depends on the description. Some are pretty accurate, others not so much. I relate to - "readily grasp the hidden psychological stimuli behind the more observable dynamics of behavior and affect. Their amazing ability to deduce the inner workings of the mind, will and emotions of others" and "find themselves caught between the desire to express their wealth of feelings and moral conclusions about the actions and attitudes of others, and the awareness of the consequences of unbridled candor".

    But when descriptions get into idiotic behavioral examples, that's where it starts to stop. Also I can't relate to the whole mystical/psychic slant people seem to throw onto INFJ's, and have also never seen myself as an 'activist' or 'champion of the oppressed or downtrodden'. I think I'm far too selfish for that.

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

    Bits and pieces of many types. I think INxx's are all somewhat similar - I guess I've never seen huge gaping differences between all of them, even though I know obviously people approach things differently.

    12.) What are you satisfied about in life?
    I'm satisfied with ... well, a lot! I think I've had a great life overall, so far, and hope to keep learning and growing and experiencing new things. I've made several 'mistakes', although the way I look at things, I don't know that they're technically mistakes, as the accumulation of all of it has led me to where and who I am today. There are certainly pieces of my life that I think need to be addressed, and are gaping holes at the moment, but I've been able to focus on so many other things in the meantime - so don't think I'd change anything.

    13.) What do you want to do as a career/what are you currently doing as a career? I don't have a clue what I want to do as a career and currently don't have one. I've never known what I want to be when I grow up. It's always been a subject matter that's plagued me.

    Oops, forgot these:

    1.) What is your MBTI type? ENTJ
    2.) If you ever thought you were a different type, explain why. I've never come up as a different type...
    3.) What are your percents? Are they on a 0-100% scale or 50-100% scale?
    4.) What is your enneagram type (if known)?
    5.) What types are you attracted for for friendship and why?
    6.) What types are you attracted to for romantic relations and why? INFP, ISFJ, INTP
    7.) What types do you generally enjoy working with and why? Any types that can leave emotions out of getting a task done, and who can get down to work without the need for a 3 hour meeting.
    8.) What does your room/house look like? Neat, highly personal in terms of style, absolutely no knick knacks.
    9.) How imaginative do you consider yourself and what are you typically imaginative about? I'm imaginative about future possibilities.
    10.) What can you relate to about your type descriptions? Easily frustrated, straighforward, admiring of people who can argue their corner properly, can be overbearing with pushover-y people, lots of stuff. I'm not a workaholic though, at all.
    11.) What other types can you relate to well? I have the most trouble relating to s-types and, at times, nf types
    12.) What are you satisfied about in life? I'd rate my satisfaction level pretty high. Not wildly high and it's not like I don't have stress in my life, but I consciously stop myself from getting all worked up about stuff I don't have, whatever it may be.
    13.) What do you want to do as a career/what are you currently doing as a career? Currently a graduate student (European history) - as for a career, I have to say, my ambition is directed mainly towards having a family - being a mother, and not having a career.

    Costrin's

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

    Rationalize why I'm feeling the way I am, assert my feelings and what the causer for those feelings are. After that I deal with it and do anything I can to make myself feel better.

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

    You can only love life if you love yourself, if you don't love yourself well get to it! If you think can't, then you can (this applies to most situations). Get out there, take risks, live a little bit. Get out of your comfort zone, you will be a better person.

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

    I usually am the icebreaker, when it becomes silent I usually say something totally random. I also add in to the conversation and such. I'm also the guy with the car.

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

    I try to detach, then I deal with it the best I can. I try to think of the best way to do it, most likely in steps. I will think and rationalize in my mind until I have a plan and then do it. This may take a while though.

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

    I just have one cat, the other died. I love my cats, so nuff said. My cat is very cool, she sleeps with me and keeps me company when I'm alone (which is the majority of the time).

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

    Ignorance.

    7. Left or Right?

    That's relative. I suppose right.

    8. How do you have fun?

    Mostly time alone, writing, reading, talking to people. Usually once a week I will socialize to let out all of my energy I gained from being alone.

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

    Oh boy. Well I have a net of emotions that I draw from. Everything becomes an emotional attachment if I care about it. If I dislike something it becomes a negative emotional attachment. My entire life my Fi has been gathering information, constantly feeding my net. This is where my morals come from. What seems right and what seems wrong according to my system. I employ the use of Si a good bit, I will analyze in my head every aspect of an emotion to gain a better understanding, and I will note how to reproduce the effects. From this I will know if something I do will make me feel good or bad. I will also make rational sense of my emotions with (I'm guessing) Te, I will make sure that a value makes sense and isn't unrealistic. Te is also how I gain inner harmony, I value it a good bit. I would be an emotional wreck if my Te sucked. It seems to fix every problem in my psyche and takes over when I get frustrated emotionally etc. My use of Ne is pretty stereotypical, get ideas and things. Through Ne I can predict how to make myself feel good in the future, based on my past experiences. Through all of these values I filter experiences, and I can see if I will enjoy something or not. New experiences are open to me, even if I have to go out of my comfort zone. That's just being human though.

    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 fuels my emotional state. I usually listen to music I enjoy to get relief, or possibly to make myself more focused. Music is a tool for me in ways.

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

    I'm not.

    12. What are your "secret desires"?

    Well, the ones that aren't obvious from on outward impression of me are that I seek love and I seek peace.

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

    That weird guy that's pretty cool.

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

    They are pretty chill, they don't really annoy me at all. I can get along with all introverts.

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

    They can be pretty cool, and they can get me out of my comfort zones (which is good). However this can also be a bad thing too. It depends on how extreme they are, highly preferred extroverts annoy the hell out of me.

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

    I'm not sure, I know that there are differences but I can't pinpoint any.

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

    I'm not, the vagueness has it's own purpose.

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

    That I'm always angry.

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

    I hate how I am such a sucker for love.

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

    I love and relish my empathy. I don't know what I would do without it. I also like how I'm built to be healthy.

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

    That I actually am a HIGHLY caring person once I let them into my life.

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

    I really like cats, and I like black cats. The eye generally is the portal to the soul, so it's all symbolic.

    26. How do you generally meet new friends?

    Internet, or I am forced to be near them in school. That's pretty much it.

    27. What are some of your most important values?

    Treat people equally until they give me a reason not to, to not let down my loved ones, to not let down myself, to perfect myself in any way I can, to help people with their emotional problems, to not be ignorant, to gain a higher understanding of issues.

    My Questions

    1.) What is your MBTI type? infp. No caps used on purpose.

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

    I once thought I was an INXP for about 5 minutes, then I realized I was an idiot. I am borderline T/F for the reason.

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

    in the 50-100 scale I have 60% I, 55% N, 51% F, 60% P.

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

    9w8

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

    Pretty much everyone, since how I like someone is relative to the actual person.

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

    Pretty much all XXTJ people. Yes including ESTJs. Also with a bit of INTP thrown in there, and ISTP. I think that T types ground me, and I am less afraid of screwing up and offending a T type than I am an F type.

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

    Pretty much any P type, since we work at the same pace. But I'm not too picky.

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

    Like a warzone.

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

    I consider myself pretty imaginative, I usually daydream about very random stuff or about people I know.

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

    I can pretty much just agree with the functions order. A lot of the other stuff I can't relate to for the most part, the only type description that's REALLY good that I've seen is: INFP Profile

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

    INTP, ISFP males, ESFP males, sometimes ENFP males, sometimes INFJ, sometimes INTJ. But mostly just INTP and the XXFPs.

    12.) What are you satisfied about in life?

    I'm thankful for the things that I've gotten, and I realize that it could be MUCH worse. For that I am thankful.

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

    I want to do something in the psychology field, something with helping people.

    1.) What is your MBTI type?
    I test most often as INTJ. And function wise, it seems to be the most correct analysis of my personality.

    2.) If you ever thought you were a different type, explain why.
    I've also been typed as an INFP and INFJ, rarely ISTJ and INTP. Why? I don't know.

    3.) What are your percents? Are they on a 0-100% scale or 50-100% scale?
    It varies a lot. But I always have a strong I.

    4.) What is your enneagram type (if known)?
    Probably 6w5. That's an educated guess.

    5.) What types are you attracted for for friendship and why?
    INFJ, ENFJ, INFP, ENFP, ISTJ, ISFJ, INTP, ESFP, ISTP. Because I seem to get along with them best.

    6.) What types are you attracted to for romantic relations and why?
    I'm attracted to most types. There are a lot of variables to consider in each individual.

    7.) What types do you generally enjoy working with and why?
    Can't I just work by myself? Mostly J types, because I'm a perfectionist.

    8.) What does your room/house look like?
    Organised with a small pile of clothes on the floor and a few Pepsi cans here and there. But my bed is made, so bonus points. The rest of my house is pretty clean as well.

    9.) How imaginative do you consider yourself and what are you typically imaginative about?
    Average. I often contemplate ideas of social change and 'what if' senarios. I sometimes get ideas for art and music projects but I rarely excute them.

    10.) What can you relate to about your type descriptions?
    Mostly accurate. I think it would be better to ask, "What can you not realate to about your type descriptions?"

    11.) What other types can you relate to well?
    NFs and SJs, mostly because I've spent the most time around them. I don't particularly understand SPs and for some reason in the real world I don't get along with other NTs well.

    12.) What are you satisfied about in life?
    Not much. I don't see any point in where I am going. But I'd like to be satisfied before I die.

    13.) What do you want to do as a career/what are you currently doing as a career?
    I don't know. Does it really matter? I'd like to do something that involves social science but I don't want just any career. It doesn't matter what I'm up to these days.




    1. What do you when you get stressed to get unstressed?
    I try to clean my working/living space. I take a long hot shower. I sleep on it. I complain to someone. I'll play video games or watch TV. If I'm really stressed out, I'll go for a drive. If I'm pissed I meet my problem head on.

    2. What advice would you give to the majority of people that would make life easier for them? (Try to be somewhat specific)
    Stop being so lazy. Pay your bills on time and stop victimising yourself because you got yourself into debt. Stop having so many God-damned babies, you have the ability to be responsible so do it. Stop getting yourself into unhealthy relationships and staying in them. And finally, take care of the environment, 'cause you only get one. (Of course, I wouldn't word it like that.) Basically, be responsible for your actions and don't complain about it, do something to fix it.

    3. How would you describe your "social role" in your group of friends?
    Usually I'm the quiet one who follows along with whatever every body else does. In some cases nobody wants to take leadership so I do it and become the 'mastermind', as I was called once, behind the planning and everyone pretty much reports to me. But this happens mostly when nobody knows what they want to do. I'm also the person who reminds the flakier friends about their responsibilities.

    4. When presented with a (somewhat challenging) problem, how do you solve it?
    I analyse it and re-analyse it, do something else for a while, then try to come back with a clear head.

    5. Do you have pets? If so, what n' how many? AND, how do you treat your pets?
    Yes. Five cats, one turtle, and thirteen fish. I try to give them more than they need in terms of luxaries but I also don't over do it. I enjoy providing for them but sometimes when I need to retreat from the world I'll lock my cats outside my bedroom.

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

    7. Left or Right?
    How am I supposed to interpret this? Left.

    8. How do you have fun?
    I amuse myself with morbid observations and social faux pas. I play video games, watch cartoons, and pretend to be up to no good.

    9. Do you consider your inner world structured, and if so, how? Basically, describe your inner world (or die!).
    My inner world is hilarious but also dark and scary. So few can appreciate it.

    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 stimulates my imagination. My imagination then affects my emotional state. I listen to music to get away from the real world and revel in my inner world. And to answer the last question: both.

    11. How annoyed are you at the positioning of my post, and the work-in-progressness of it?
    Slightly. Seems less efficient. Makes me wonder if you're going to finish this project.

    12. What are your "secret desires"?
    N/A.

    13. How do think people view you when they first meet you?
    I'm told that I'm sometimes come off as 'abrasive'. I don't think most people notice me or want to interact with me.

    14. What do you feel about introverts, and why?
    I like them in larger doses.

    15. What do you feel about extr(a/o)verts, and why?
    I like them in smaller doses.

    16. What do perceive are the differences between male and females of your type?
    I don't perceive, I judge. INTJ males are more assertive and more often than not jerks. At least the ones I've met.

    17. How annoyed are you at the vagueness of my questions?
    Not a lot. It just reminds me of MySpace surveys. Not very scientific though.

    18. What is the most common misconception people have of you?
    I don't as much about things as other's think.

    19. What is the biggest thing about yourself that you hate?
    Lacking confidence, being bad at wording things, lacking better work ethic, and not taking enough chances.

    20. What is the biggest thing about yourself that you love?
    I don't know... I like to think I have a good idea about what world really is without silly human meaning attached to it.

    21. What questions would you ask for this?
    I don't have time for this...

    22. What is one thing that people don't know about you?
    If I told you then someone would know, defeating its purpose.

    23. Would you date Costrin?
    I already said yes, you attention whore.

    24. How and why did you pick the avatar that you did?
    'Cause it's funny.

    25. YO EAGLE IMA BEAT YOU
    Reminds me of a thread I posted in today...

    26. How do you generally meet new friends?
    Lately at the bar... It's not a good place to make friends.

    However you like.

    11. How annoyed are you at the positioning of my post, and the work-in-progressness of it?
    Slightly. Seems less efficient. Makes me wonder if you're going to finish this project.
    Maybe eventually. Though it'll likely be one of those things that you could just eternally add on to.

    17. How annoyed are you at the vagueness of my questions?
    Not a lot. It just reminds me of MySpace surveys. Not very scientific though.
    Yeah, I might go back and edit the questions. For now I just wanna get em out there. And later on I can add more concrete questions.

    21. What questions would you ask for this?
    I don't have time for this...
    You're no help!

    23. Would you date Costrin?
    I already said yes, you attention whore.
    Yup, I admit it.

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

    Honestly if I'm stressed out, it'll probably have to run its course. Not much I can 'Do' to de-stress myself, as I tend to get stressed when things are out of my control and there isn't anything I can actually do. It becomes an emotional state. I might be able to temporarily distract myself, but once done distracting myself, the stress is still there.

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

    If you're in a situation you do not like, and don't want to stay in that situation as it exists (either the situation itself, OR the feelings you have regarding it), you can either - 1. Adjust your perceptions/adjust what you're mentally focusing on, and try to look at things from a different perspective/angle, or 2. If this is not possible given the nature of the situation, you extricate yourself from it or go about enacting changes.

    Basically - Change your attitude, or change the situation. If you don't do either, then I don't want to hear you complain about it anymore!! ;-)

    3. How would you describe your "social role" in your group of friends?
    I don't think I have a role? It kinda depends who I'm with. But in general I listen, ask questions, and offer input at times.

    4. When presented with a (somewhat challenging) problem, how do you solve it?
    Buckle down and get to work! Just think it through. (honestly, depends on what sort of 'problem' you're referring to. Intellectual, or emotional? Different approaches are needed depending.)

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

    One cat. I treat her like the princess she is.

    6. What's one thing that really annoys you in other people, and why?
    People projecting their own needs/self onto others or myself, and thinking/assuming that because they think or do things that way, everyone else should too.

    7. Left or Right?
    Huh?

    8. How do you have fun?
    Playing games, getting outside and hiking/canoeing/etc, traveling, photography, hanging out with friends

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

    Next question!

    Nah, I dunno.... When I'm calm/centered/detached, it can seem quite structured and clear. When I'm stressed or uncertain about something, it becomes much less so. I will say I think there are many linkages and I wouldn't describe my thought process as linear at all..however, I don't think that implies a lack of structure either.

    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 listen to certain music depending on my mood. Some music definitely has a nostalgic element for me, as I can associate certain songs with periods/'phases' of my life.

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

    Don't mind it at all.

    12. What are your "secret desires"?
    ? I'd love to experience love for a lifetime, but also don't intellectually understand how it's possible.

    13. How do think people view you when they first meet you?
    If I meet someone in a 1:1 setting, they may think I'm more extroverted. In a group setting, they'll leave either not having noticed me at all, or they'll just think I was the really quiet girl.

    14. What do you feel about introverts, and why?
    ? I don't 'feel' anything about introverts. Introverts are what they are, just as extroverts are what they are.

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

    See above. With the added comment that uber-extroverts can totally wear me out and annoy me.

    16. What do perceive are the differences between male and females of your type?
    Male appears more cold and detached initially.

    17. How annoyed are you at the vagueness of my questions?
    Some questions are so vague as to be pointless, but I get that you're more interested in the method of answering than the answer itself.

    18. What is the most common misconception people have of you?
    I have no idea.

    19. What is the biggest thing about yourself that you hate?
    My tendency to be obsessive about certain things.

    20. What is the biggest thing about yourself that you love?
    Is it weird that I don't have an answer for this?

    21. What questions would you ask for this?
    It doesn't matter. Each question goes after certain aspects of someone's persona -- leaving another chunk untouched.

    22. What is one thing that people don't know about you?
    Depends on the person in my life. Different people know, and don't know, different things.

    23. Would you date Costrin?


    24. How and why did you pick the avatar that you did?
    I have always loved birds and nature, I took the photo, and I love the little bird in my avatar because he was so curious and friendly.

    26. How do you generally meet new friends?
    I kinda suck at meeting people, so usually I meet people through friends that I already have. I've also met some people from web forums like this, so internet is the next option.

    27. What are some of your most important values?
    Being respectful of others, environmental stewardship and caring for nature/animals, and living life to the fullest.

    29. What are your mornings generally like?
    ? When I used to work, well, I got up and went to work. On non-work days, mornings were just time to veg around and not do a whole lot (I do however get up pretty early -- I can't sleep in anymore).

    Questionaire 1

    1.) What is your MBTI type?

    INFJ

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

    No. None of the other types fit me at all.

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

    I don't know the exact numbers but I always had high percentages for introversion and judging. My F and N seemed rather low when I took the test but there is no way that I am a S or a T, I am far too much head-in-the-clouds and governed by emotions.

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

    9w1

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

    INFPs because they are gentle and caring. I seem to attract ESFJs but I find the unhealthy ones too emotionally manipulative while the healthy ones are really caring. Other INFJs are great, because they understand me. I guess I just like caring people, who emotionally get me and I would love to have some N thrown in so that they understand me also on an intellectual level. Ts are also interesting but I don't tend to have them as close friends.

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

    ExxPs seem to feel attracted to me. I love the charm of EXXPs, they are the ones that can get me out of my shell and actually have the ability to conquer me. (especially if they are Intuitives) I am also drawn to the strong silent type, especially INTJs aka Mr Darcy types.

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

    J types, because they get things done. Introverted Feelers because they have emotional intelligence and don't bitch too much. Sometimes I also like xTxJs because they are efficient but don't get offended when you tell them to GET MOVING.

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

    Never a complete dump but almost always messy.

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

    I am a future thinker, always working out all the different possibilities. But I am not sure I am that super imaginative.

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

    Most things, when I read comments on an INFJ board it felt like home! But I am not psychic. Also I am not sure if I am really that good at reading people, I only truly know myself, so how can I compare my people reading skills to anyone else's?

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

    INFP, ENFP, ENTP to some degree, INTJ, ISFJ to some degree, maybe ENFJs but don't really know any.

    12.) What are you satisfied about in life?

    That I have managed to set off on my own and travelled around the world. That I have lived and suceeded in a country that is not my own for several years. That I will never stop growing. Even if it seems like there is no line on the horizon I will somehow find this piece of hope and vision in the grayness that brings me further and to the next level. As soon as I stop wanting to learn and develop I can start planning my funeral.

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

    I have studied journalism (I want to get to know the world and love random situations and learning about people) but it is an area that is difficult to get into. I basically just want to travel the world and learn about people and cultures.

    Questionaire 2

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

    Find a quiet place. Distract myself. Tell myself to calm down. Make a plan.

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

    I have no idea.

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

    Quiet but witty. The one who keeps things together, when necessary mediates between people and puts effort into staying in contact. The interesting and slightly adventurous one.

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

    Try to switch off my emotions (or wait until they have cooled off) and then try to think through it rationally. Look at all the options. Try all the options. If the problem still isn't solved get all emtional about it again ("I wanna die!") & then try to solve it again. If nothing works I'll either try to completely cut myself off from the situation or person or organization that causes the problem and if I can't do that I will try again and again to solve the problem. I am really bad at just letting the universe run its course.

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

    I don't have pets. The plants I used to have all died. My pet wouldn't die but I don't really want one. Bringing up children would be much better, I feel like there would be a real point putting all this effort into nurturing them and caring for them.

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

    Slowness annoys me. I am too impatient.
    A lack of common decency annoys me. Saying "Please" and "Thank you" makes you go a long way.
    A lack of generosity annoys me. I just love naturally generous people.

    7. Left or Right?

    Right-handed. Lefty politically.

    8. How do you have fun?

    Having deep conversations with interesting people and learning from them. Travelling. Doing random, weird fun things like giving out free hugs. Reading captivating books. Learning about personality types. Writing poetry. Going on long solitary walks while thinking a lot. Learning about the world.

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

    I'll rather die!! Muhaaha!

    Basically I have no idea what to write here. Perhaps that I like personality systems like Myers Briggs because it allows me to label people, to put some structure into humanity. If I wouldn't have Myers Briggs I would find some other tool to figure people out. Once I meet you I pretty quickly put a label on you but I am also very willing to change my mind if some new evidence doesn't correspend with my initial evaluation of you.

    Also my brain is very random in that I constantly see connections between seemingly unrelated things, I am great at building metaphors.

    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 can influence my mood. Music can also heal and soothe (like some Sufjan Stevens music) or take you to deeper, mystical places (like some Tori Amos music). I don't care about music that is technically brilliant but doesn't move me emotionally.

    Also some music (from artists like Tori Amos or Thomas Newman, who wrote the soundtracks for American Beauty and Revolutionary Road) makes me feel like I have finally arrived at home, these special songs seem to point to a place that is much higher or beyond what we can see now. This kind of music makes me feel whole for a moment and hopeful, like there is a place where my longings can finally be fullfilled instead of me just having to stumble through a world that feel alien to me.

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



    12. What are your "secret desires"?

    I want to live in a mystical, surreal place. I loved Las Vegas and Reno not because of the shows or the casinos but because I felt at home in this weird city in the middle of the desert.

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

    Aloof if I decide not to talk to them and let my reserved introvert hang out. Bubbly, friendly and witty if I decide to invest energy and time in them because I find them interesting and stimulating. Also I might appear far more extroverted than I am when I try to include outsiders by being witty and talking to them. Seeing a lonely stranger or someone who is excluded or hurting can make my Fe go into overdrive.

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

    They are great. You can be alone while being with them. They don't rob me of my energy but approach me tentatively.

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

    Can be very draining. Mature ones are alright because they don't just talk the poor introvert (me!) to the ground but turn the conversation into a dialogue. I normally get along better with Ns than with Ss cause I feel like I can learn something from the Intuitives.

    The good thing about Es is that they help me to open up. Also I prefer asking questions to answering them so an extrovert can talk away while I nod my head and listen.

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

    I haven't noticed any differences.

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

    I am boiling.

    Eggs.

    18. What is the most common misconception of you?

    That I am cold or tough. That's all just exterior, I am efficient and like to get things done (preferably NOW) but if you push the right emotional buttons (by being vulnerable, an outsider, disadvantaged, a child, hurting, ill etc.) you will realise in an instant that I am soft as cream cheese. Also I have been described as bold (Not really. Too much confrontation makes me feel sick.)

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

    I get too emotional about stuff and stop functioning well.

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

    I tend to get along with almost anyone. I have realised what a blessing it sometimes is to be introverted, I don't shout all my thoughts into the world but think them through and so don't often regret saying something stupid or having openly made a premature judgment.

    21. What questions would you ask for this?

    Nothing to add.

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

    Depends on what I reveal to whom. For example almost no one knows how much I am into Myers Briggs. It just seems too complicated a subject to bring up during dinner parties, while small-talking or during a telephone conversation.

    23. Would you date Costrin?

    Nah.

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

    The picture is from Tori Amos' album "Boys for Pele" which has been my favourite album since I was a teenager. I just love the warm golden colours in it, its mystical feel, how there is a strangeness and at the same time warmth to it. I guess it's a typical INFJ photo > strange = Ni; warmth = Fe

    26. How do you generally meet new friends?
    All over the place. I often meet likeminded people through webforums, while studying, through church, while travelling, through friends etc.

    27. What are some of your most important values?

    To make other people feel better about themselves instead of making the world a worse place to live in for everyone else.

    29. What are your mornings generally like?

    Sleep a lot. Check the internet. Have a bite. Rush, rush, rush (if there isn't a timelimit I take ages to get ready) to get to work and always arrive just on time at my work place (I tend not to be early. There is so much I could do in these few minutes instead of being early!)
