    1.) What is your MBTI type?

    INFJ

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

    INFP - All the other members of my family are strong FP-types, so I had no J-role-models. I'm not very organised for a supposed J and hopeless at setting and meeting goals. However, I am definitely Ni-dominant and am very good at taking care of others using Fe, so INFJ is a much better fit. Also there is no way am I Fi-dominant - I still struggle to understand and access my own Fi function, despite the examples provided by my family!

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

    Don't know what you really mean here, but I usually score the following:

    I: 60-70%
    N: 90-100%
    F: 90-100%
    J: 55-60%

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

    Nine with a strong One wing. Instinctual stacking: Sx>Sp>So

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

    In order of preference:

    1. Fellow NFs, to share our idealistic worldviews and spiritual beliefs.
    Most of my good friends are ENFPs, next most common is INFP. I only know a handful of ENFJs and INFJs, but I wish I knew more!

    2. NTs, because we both like to speak the same abstract language, but I need their T-perspective to balance my F-idealism and for helping me make tough decisions. I wish they weren't always so cynical, however!

    3. ESFPs and ISFPs, for their sheer good nature and love of all things sensual.

    4. I have most difficulties relating to SJs, especially the more rigid ones. However, I have several very good ISTJ and ISFJ friends and there was a great ESFJ girl I used to work with. Don't usually get along with ESTJs at all - they don't understand me in the slightest. Only once did I have a good working relationship with an ESTJ female colleague, who used to ask for my input on various projects requiring an NF approach. I never could tell whether or not she actually liked me, but on my last day at work she gave me a big hug and thanked me for all my help - I was totally delighted by this!

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

    I've always been attracted to ETPs. I'm most attracted to ESTPs and have dated a few, but we don't speak the same language and it never lasted for very long. Then I found my current partner - an ENTP - and we are still together 17 years later. I need an Extravert to drag me out of my comfort zone and for meeting new people, a Thinker to keep me grounded and balance my strong Fe need to put others first all the time, and a Perceiver for their sheer unpredictability - otherwise I tend to fall into comfortable but unadventurous routines.

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

    No preferences here, the workplace is a great place for me to meet and get to know other MBTI types. Far more important to me is working with psychologically healthy and well-balanced types. A dysfunctional person is a nightmare to work with, whatever their type.

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

    Our house is old and quite eccentric - decorated with bright colours, a huge collection of ecletic artifacts and lots of nice paintings and other artwork, but other people do seem to like our style. My ENTP partner's ideas predominate - I'm much more of a minimalist by nature, but happily we share the same tastes in art.

    Unfortunately, he is very messy and disorganised, so our house gets cluttered with piles of his papers and other crap. He is constantly losing things, which I always have to find for him. I much prefer tidiness, but he can create a mess far faster than I can tidy it up, so I've learned to live with it. When we have guests arriving, he suddenly panics and we have a mad cleaning frenzy to get everything looking nice and tidy for our visitors, but that is largely an illusion as we just shove all the crap into cupboards or our over-stuffed garage.

    Despite the chaos, our house is kept clean, as we both value good hygeine.

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

    I'm the most imaginative person I know, and I know some very imaginative people! There are no limits to my imagination - I use it for entertainment, to solve problems, to explore my inner world, to consider possibilities that no-one else seems to think about.
    I have a huge curiousity about many things, which drives my imaginative speculations. One of my biggest problems in life is switching off my imagination and simply observing the environment.

    The only things which turn me off are mundane details - stuff like tax returns, investment strategies and necessary but tedious paperwork. Luckily my partner is skilled in this area - he is an accountant - and I have put all my work-related admin onto autopilot, so that I can do it quickly and accurately, whilst thinking of something much more interesting instead.

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

    Pretty much everything, including my weaknesses. The "official" hierarchy of type functions (Ni, Fe, Ti, Se) is extremely accurate for me.

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

    It's easiest to relate to fellow N's, as we can skip through the usual tedious details and start bouncing ideas around straight away. If I meet and start talking to an obvious N-type for the first time, it may be ages before we get around to telling each other our names!

    12.) What are you satisfied about in life?

    I love living in New Zealand, where I emigrated to five years ago. I have some great friends and have travelled to many different countries of the world - they have all been fascinating and enlightening. I am comfortable with being an INFJ and enjoy exploring my inner worlds for the purposes of self-development. I like my house and I love my pets (two cats and a dog). There is much I am not satisfied with (are NFs ever truly satisfied?), including my career and my relationship - my partner has taken to working ridiculously long hours, which makes him very moody and critical with me. This is also starting to affect his health, but I don't seem to be able to reach him to put this right.

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

    I am a senior forensic scientist in a government laboratory. I used to really love the work, but the increasing admin burden and ever-more rigorous quality systems are making it harder and harder to apply my intuitive approach to casework. It's ridiculous, because every good forensic scientist (regardless of their MBTI type) needs intuition, to sense when something is not right or missing with the evidence they are examining.

    My ideal and preferred career would be as a counsellor/therapist or life-coach. I have some training in this area, and my INFJ skills make me a natural at this type of work. I work best on a one-to-one basis and have done some private counselling work. However, it's a huge leap to make from my present career and the current recession will probably delay my decision still further (sigh!)

    And if I only could,
    I'd make a deal with God,
    And I'd get him to swap our places,
    Be running up that road,
    Be running up that hill,
    With no problems.

    MBTI-I 63% N high 90s T 76% P high 90s

    Could be a different type due to dyslexia/slight autism. I could very well have read certain questions incorrectly.

    For friends i am attracted to XNFJ ISFP XNFP because it is not rocket science. Fellow intps go w/o saying.

    For any lengthy relationship ENFP and ESTJ. In the past. Cannot predict the future.

    I enjoy working with XNTJ. They make more logical decisions based on fairness.

    I live w/dog. My house is spartin and utility formated as a house should be.

    My imagination is so un-PC even i reminisce on it and am apalled. I am typically imaginative of a womans rear end or finding a way out of a pinch after the pinch has happened or finding some kind of overlap between english and ancient languages to make them both comprehendable.

    I can relate to my preferences Ne. I think it's my feeder, decision maker, aux and least developed.

    IMO. I THINK i can relate to XNFJ ISFP XNFP. IMO

    Am i satisfied about life? I'm eatin a cheese burger. What more can ya ask for.

    As a career i'd like to be able to talk those stupid rich ass college kids high on drugs out of charging at cops in the middle of the night with a something or other in their hand. Any suggestions?
    everyone uses every function about evenly. take NE for example. if there are those who don't use it much, then why are there such massive amounts of people constantly flowing through Wallmart with 20 items or less?

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

    Find a quiet place and sit there. Sometimes I'll meditate. Sometimes I'll just stare into space. Silencing my mind relieves stress.

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

    Try not to take things so seriously.

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

    The nurturer and moderator. I try to make everyone feel comfortable and needed.

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

    Reflect on it for a while. Try to imagine many possibilities to get to the solution.

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

    I personally don't have any but my parents do. They have three cats and a dog and love them all. I treat them like members of the family and cuddly friends.

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

    Close mindedness. Human life and the collective world advance and become better places when people can empathize with others and see things from their point of view. Close minded people aren't very good at this sometimes.

    7. Left or Right?

    Right all the way baby because I'm right handed and sleep on my right side. Politically? Left is better but not great.

    8. How do you have fun?

    Discovering new people and having interesting conversations. Also, expending all my energy at drunken social gatherings where good music and bad dancing run rampant.

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

    My inner world is a mess and I like it that way. I don't get things accomplished in the outer world that easily though. I need to actively structure my self in the outer world in order to do anything except daydream basically.

    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 the greatest art form. It becomes part of the audience like no other art. The listener takes it in and it is transformed. The communication (the mind melding) between the creator and the listener is fluid. The listener takes what the creator says and makes it his/her own. Personal meanings and nostalgia become huge parts of music.

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

    I don't feel any form of annoyance.

    12. What are your "secret desires"?

    To have meaningful sex with a large number of people without the fear of pregnancy or STDs. I want sex to be an extension of love without having a monogamous relationship.

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

    Depends. Some think I'm quiet and boring. Some think I'm silly, fun, and amazing to be around.

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

    I love them. They can talk but they can also leave you alone. I like being able to be left alone.

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

    They can draw me out of my shell and allow me to have more fun than usual but they annoy me if they don't stop talking or trying to be around me.

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

    Male INFJs seem to have a harder time dealing with the emotional/feminine aspects that seem to come along with being an NF. They seem to feel more out of place in this current culture.

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

    They aren't vague.

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

    That I am often unhappy, boring, and unsociable.

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

    My reluctance to take action coupled with my lack of natural talents.

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

    Just like Blackcat: My empathy.

    21. What questions would you ask for this?

    The same......but I think I'd add in some silly/random questions to see if a pattern emerges in how the types respond to unorthodox queries.

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

    I actually can't think of anything. That's.....disappointing.

    23. Would you date Costrin?

    I don't think he is gay, so probably not. And that's assuming Costrin is a he. I'd hang out with Costrin, though. Seems like an interesting character bubbling forth from the vast emptiness of Kansas.

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

    Don't remember where I got it, but I like dark blue and space. So a comet in a deep blue field appeals to me.

    25. YO EAGLE IMA BEAT YOU

    Beat me as in violence? You don't want to do that. I'm too nice to be beaten.

    26. How do you generally meet new friends?

    Through mutual friends. If I see someone who looks quirky I may strike up a conversation with them if I don't know them.

    27. What are some of your most important values?

    Give everyone a chance. Express love. Embrace the community.

    28.

    When someone I know was young, she thought the stretches of flat farmland from Little Rock to Memphis was the Sahara Desert. Someone else thought the Sahara was the empty surface of Mars. Someone thought the barren lands of Mars seemed more desolate than the void of space lit by galaxies. Someone once thought that the black vacuum of the universe was the largest place. The inner mind encompasses all of these and more. Inner space is grander than outer space.

    29. What are your mornings generally like?

    I wake up and get out of bed right away. Don't like laying there too long. Check the computer for various things. Eat breakfast. Play a little guitar. Listen to some music. Go out the door.


    I will answer Blackcat's questions later. Mmmmmkay!

    EDIT: Looked at Costrin's profile. He is a male. I am gay but he is not. No I would not date because I don't do the straight guy thing.

    Default ENTP manifesto - part deux

    1. What do you when you get stressed to get unstressed?
    There are stages: (1) Plunge in as if it's a fun task, like the stress is a 'fun' kind of stress (don't know how to explain that right) (2) Not enough interest in the cause of the stress - Punk off (i.e., ignore), (3) It has dire consequences - become a very unhealthy INTJ

    2. What advice would you give to the majority of people that would make life easier for them? (Try to be somewhat specific)
    Own it! Whatever action, reaction or inaction - own your part in it.

    3. How would you describe your "social role" in your group of friends? Depends on the group. But, mostly I'm the 'leader' (whatever I suggest, we all do, but, it's because they want to/choose my ideas as a consensus), otherwise, I just 'go with the flow' (esp. if I can just be without needing to put in my own time/effort to do actual planning)

    4. When presented with a (somewhat challenging) problem, how do you solve it?
    a. Brainstorm the problem (esp. finding holes [loopholes] to the problem - I get into nitty-gritty details of the problem then).
    b. Figure out a way to categorize my brainstorm.
    c. Figure out a way to 'kill two birds with one stone'.
    d. Outline possible solutions.
    e.Outline the holes to each possible solutions.
    f. Outline as many consequences of each 'solution'.
    g. Depending on time limit, go with my gut to choose a particular solution.
    [I don't use paper for a-g, I sit, keep reading/looking/thinking of the problem, as I internally go through each step]


    5. Do you have pets? If so, what n' how many? AND, how do you treat your pets?
    Yes. A bird (budgie). She's my cute l'il sister I never had (actually, I'm her playmate/silly buddy) {I give her dialogue a lot, actually with any animals, I always talk out what I think they're thinking given present situation}
    * the place I rent for school, my roommate has two kitties (she laments that they've turned on her because they love me more than her - it's cuz she's not silly with them)....is it bad that I have 'selling out' guilt towards my bird for my affiliation with the kitties?


    6. What's one thing that really annoys you in other people, and why?
    Apathy, why?
    I'll quote Carl Sagan:
    Our posturings, our imagined self-importance, the delusion that we have some privileged position in the Universe, are challenged by this point of pale light. Our planet is a lonely speck in the great enveloping cosmic dark. In our obscurity, in all this vastness, there is no hint that help will come from elsewhere to save us from ourselves.
    [....]
    It has been said that astronomy is a humbling and character-building experience. There is perhaps no better demonstration of the folly of human conceits than this distant image of our tiny world. To me, it underscores our responsibility to deal more kindly with one another, and to preserve and cherish the pale blue dot, the only home we've ever known.

    7. Left or Right?
    Up, always!
    8. How do you have fun?
    How DON'T you have fun living life.
    9. Do you consider your inner world structured, and if so, how? Basically, describe your inner world (or die!).
    Nope. That's what I do in my down time, sort through the thoughts whizzing around to make a structure/sense out of a tiny percentage of them.
    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 like base in music when I'm in the mood to dance. I like lyric-focused music when I want to be 'touched'. I like creative mixes of sound (esp. African music and some classic Indian music) when I want to 'feel'/connect with the music
    11. How annoyed are you at the positioning of my post, and the work-in-progressness of it?
    I'm more annoyed with having to re-read and re-read this question to make sense of it.
    12. What are your "secret desires"?
    What makes you think you deserve to know my secrets?
    13. How do think people view you when they first meet you?
    Charming (Quite a lot of times, I have had people who met me through mutual friends request that they bring me out next time they meet up...'because she's got such a cool personality')
    14. What do you feel about introverts, and why?
    My favourite toys to play with. *poke* *poke* {interesting aside: both the interviewers are introverts..
    15. What do you feel about extr(a/o)verts, and why?
    SHUT THE FUCK UP! It's *me* time! Actually, depends on the extravert...I like to take down the arrogant ones by one-upping them. And, those that come off as being very gregarious, accomodating (EXFJ)...I revel in getting babied by them. Ah, pampering. (btw, I like how you've accounted for both spelling of extra(o)vert, I love thoroughness in thought
    16. What do perceive are the differences between male and females of your type?
    Males are thought of as the cat's meow, while the females are thought of as clawy kitties.

    17. How annoyed are you at the vagueness of my questions?
    Huh.......didn't notice. I like that I can interpret however way I like.

    18. What is the most common misconception people have of you?
    Depends on what you mean by 'people' and context. If it's online communities, they will probably see me as very confrontational/cold/arrogant/sarcastic. If in real life, (A) most are suprised when they actually get to know me because their first impression of me is that I'm very 'sweet'/charming/needing to be taken care of/oblivious/silly (my Fe is on quite often in RL, and, my obliviousness is usually because I choose to ignore certain things on purpose). (B) Otherwise, depending on my mood, like if I'm not totally relaxed so I don't really access my Fe, then, most are quite afraid to approach me, speak up with me.
    19. What is the biggest thing about yourself that you hate?
    Hate that I can't love myself more...don't you just hate reaching a ceiling?
    20. What is the biggest thing about yourself that you love?
    See 19...and infer.
    21. What questions would you ask for this?
    No questions because I have yet to figure out what 'this' is. What questions I'd ask you two: what is the hypothesis of this little 'study'? What trends, patterns are you hoping to see? How did you decide on these questions (and what questions did you think of, but, chose to leave out - and why)? What is your purpose, objective and hypothesi(e)s?
    22. What is one thing that people don't know about you?
    I'm much more caring than I let on.
    23. Would you date Costrin?
    Nah. I rather not go into the reasons (or actually, think up reasons for my 'no')
    24. How and why did you pick the avatar that you did?
    My all-time favourite book is "Alice's Adventures in Wonderland"
    25. YO EAGLE IMA BEAT YOU
    PSST...BEAT YOUR MEAT FIRST.
    26. How do you generally meet new friends?
    By taking every opportunity that arises to place myself in new, random situations
    27. What are some of your most important values?
    To be a good person, any chance I get. To own myself. To treat others how I'd like to be treated. To take care of my parents. To be honest in approaching life. My will. My appreciation for life (not just my own). To not let myself be fooled/taken in.
    28.
    Silence is golden, says the ENTP
    29. What are your mornings generally like?
    A battle between the head and bed

    (work in progress)
    Aren't we all?

    I REALLY HOPE SOMEONE IS ANNOYED BY MY COLOUR CHOICE

    Black Cat's questions:
    1.)INFP
    2.)yes I originally tested INTP, but looking closer I realized I wasn't INTP, but INFP
    3.)hmm probably 0-100% though my Ti is better then my Te which totally sucks balls, and my Fe is pretty lacking
    4.)4w5 (most likely)
    5.hmm probably Ns one of my best friends is an ENFJ and the other an INTJ I think my best friend from middle school I believe he's an ISFP but I think a good friend of mine is highschool was ISTP and another one is ISFJ but I guess I don't think too much about type in real life anymore.
    6.)I don't know, never been in a relationship and no plans to be in one now.
    7.)N types, I guess I don't know really someone who can understand what I'm saying, because apparently people have trouble understanding me so maybe someone who has strong Ne. Or at least willing to let me explain myself by letting me go all over the place and still follow my thoughts.
    8.)messy
    9.)People say I'm very imaginitive I say about average. Who knows all kinds of things apparently very bizzare things according to some people.
    10.)being internal,knowing the world can be better but powerless to do anything. good listener (that's a lie I use to be i don't know what happened i guess i got tired of all the bs), hate conflict, excellent at troubleshooting problems for friends, but suck at it for myself, laid back, hard on myself.
    11.)Ne types but i don't know
    12.)not a whole lot at the moment. can you ask again in 3 months?

    Costrin's Questions
    1.) stressed: isolate myself, give up, don't eat, don't sleep, going a little nuts, be very critical of others, things that don't bother me do now. unstressed more willing to go out, willing to do more bullshit, less critical of others.
    2.)my advice to people would be stop buying things to make yourself happy because it doesn't work you just want more and more and you're probably just as unhappy as you were before. I don't mean give up your possesions and live in the wilderness but realize sometimes all you need is some time with a good friend or a good book sometimes you just need to make a small change to your life. Also the little things that aren't going to matter tommorow such as making all As if you get an -A and cry about it,I will give you lobotomy and make you actually stupid so don't beat yourself up over something like that. It's annoying and it makes the rest of us hate you. Seriously don't fucking bitch about that.
    3.)the quiet quirky one who is totally random and is mostly their for entertainment (I don't think I'm appreciated by most of my friends for who I am, I'm kind of just a pet)
    4.)hide, go no no go away, look at it, cry, get pissed throw a few things, come up with a solution, hide again make excuses, solve it, then act like it wasn't a big deal.
    5.)no, but I did when i was younger, and they were nice I didn't beat them. my room mate has a small annoying dog and I want to kick it, but don't. I do tell it that it's a fucking dumb ass all the time though.
    6.)slow walkers and female voices especially the ones that are loud (this is the main reason why I can't be a lesbian)
    7.)right
    8.)do whatever no structure that's the important thing I like going out with friends, but I also like staying home and watching movies or reading or i don't know stare blankly at the ceiling.
    9.)somewhat but not to the point I can explain intelligibly I'm very tangential in my thinking.
    10.)Very much so, but I like music to match the state I'm in or else I get angry because the ipod is not agreeing with me.
    11.)I really should be doing work, but I'd rather do this so not really.
    12.)if i told you then they wouldn't be secret anymore, would they? no. hah! think you can trick me, but you can't.
    13.)that crazy person whose also a moron and more emotionally cold then I am
    14.)I am one and I like them, but some I hate
    15.)the ones that don't try to pull me out of my shell are fucking awesome, and so are the ones that don't interrupt me mid sentence.

    1.) What is your MBTI type?
    ENTP


    2.) If you ever thought you were a different type, explain why.
    At first glance, I believed I could be ENFP, but something was deeply wrong with the Fi description. When I learned more about function dynamics (Ne-Ti-Fe-Si), everything fitted perfectly within ENTP parameters.


    3.) What are your percents? Are they on a 0-100% scale or 50-100% scale?
    E (~60%), N (~100%), T (~60%), P (~90%)


    4.) What is your enneagram type (if known)?
    7w8


    5.) What types are you attracted for for friendship and why?
    Well, I think I could befriend almost anybody. I never hold grudges.

    However, my best friend is an INTJ. I've noticed I get along pretty well with lots if INTJs. I usually enjoy their quirky seriousness...

    On the other hand, I might have a lot of trouble with some INTPs, especially with immature, narcissistic ones. And ISTJs too can be a problem. Any type with light autistic features.



    6.) What types are you attracted to for romantic relations and why?
    INFJs and ENFJs are my favorites. But I had long or deep relationships with an INTJ, an INFP, and an ENTP.


    7.) What types do you generally enjoy working with and why?
    I'd say that when on a team, I usually prefer to work with INFP/ISFP/ENFP/INFJ/ISFJ... (quiet, unstructured, non-hierarchical environments)


    8.) What does your room/house look like?
    When left alone, I am extremely messy, you have no idea. It's awful. Piles of books everywhere, scattered pieces of paper, shirts hanging out of the cupboard, and dozens of tropical plants crawling in front of the windows, wherever their leaves find enough light. But when in a social/collective space, I'm usually amongst the first to volunteer for cleaning.
    I also consider that maintaining a good personal hygiene is very important. Thus, I'm the kind to wash my hands dozens times a day. I dislike any kind of "smell" on my skin or my clothes.



    9.) How imaginative do you consider yourself and what are you typically imaginative about?
    I'm a Ne-dom. I think that says it all.

    10.) What can you relate to about your type descriptions?
    Especially the fact ENTPs are supposed to have kept contact with their "inner child", while simultaneously being attracted to complex abstract systems. They have this unique sense of wonder and infinite curiosity.
    I enjoy the paradoxes of this type, the most emotionaly aware of every NTs, even if understanding yourself can be quite difficult. Wildly irrational and deeply rational at the same time. Warm outside, cold inside, full of contrasts.
    I think it's a happy type nonetheless, and I'm quite happy myself.



    11.) What other types can you relate to well?
    I relate to people, not types.


    12.) What are you satisfied about in life?
    Life has a bitterweet taste, it's both terrifying and extraordinary if you manage to take the time to notice it. But it's wonderful to be alive, isn't it?

    Each hour, each moment, each second is unique and will never happen again. So Carpe Diem!



    13.) What do you want to do as a career/what are you currently doing as a career?
    Architect/Landscape architect/Research professor

    1.) What is your MBTI type? INFj
    2.) If you ever thought you were a different type, explain why. INFP, because I'm indecisive, I struggle to express my thoughts/feelings and I have a weak J. Also, the profiles for both INFJ and INFP fit me closely.
    3.) What are your percents? Are they on a 0-100% scale or 50-100% scale? Not so sure. I can only guess. I - 50% (really, I can be happy seeing people every day for a week, or not seeing people for a week) N - 85% (sensotard, get lost in my own home town) F - no idea. (I habitually analyze my feelings to determine whether or not they're justified. If not, I discard them.) J - 60% (gut feeling).
    4.) What is your enneagram type (if known)? 9w1
    5.) What types are you attracted to for friendship and why? Any Talkative's... I like to listen.
    6.) What types are you attracted to for romantic relations and why? ESTJ, ENTJ or iNTJ. They all have leadership capabilites, are decisive, ambitious... basically the opposite of me so they compliment me well.
    7.) What types do you generally enjoy working with and why? I get along with everyone. Variety is awesome.
    8.) What does your room/house look like? My part of the apartment is very organized. I loathe clutter. The furnishings are antique, and the colour scheme is deep autumn and winter colours.
    9.) How imaginative do you consider yourself and what are you typically imaginative about? Extremely so. Details? Wouldn't you like to know...
    10.) What can you relate to about your type descriptions? Everything in the INFJ and INFP profiles.
    11.) What other types can you relate to well? My closest friend is an ESFJ. My other friends I could only venture a guess (but I won't), I haven't bothered to think about it much because I'm still too preoccupied with determining what my type is.
    12.) What are you satisfied about in life? I have few regrets, I like where I'm heading and I feel secure.
    13.) What do you want to do as a career/what are you currently doing as a career? Cashier at a health food store as of now... and I'm working towards becoming a certified ASL interpreter.

    ***

    1. What do you when you get stressed to get unstressed? Rationalize how the problem is only momentary and that it won't really affect my life as a whole; remind myself it's "small stuff." If that doesn't help, prayer does. I'll often listen to music as well.
    2. What advice would you give to the majority of people that would make life easier for them? (Try to be somewhat specific) 1) If you're constantly getting yourself into shit, stop blaming everyone else but yourself for getting yourself there. Take responsibility for your actions. 2) The more selfless you are, the happier you'll be. 3) Other than that, most of the answers you need are in The Word.
    3. How would you describe your "social role" in your group of friends? The listener, counselor, sympathizer.
    4. When presented with a (somewhat challenging) problem, how do you solve it? Usually consult another for opinions/options. Prayer, The Word.
    5. Do you have pets? If so, what n' how many? AND, how do you treat your pets? None. But when I had them (several pets: dogs, cats, horses, hampsters), they were basically my children
    6. What's one thing that really annoys you in other people, and why? Pride, selfishness. Pride generally means you're unteachable, so you're impossible to live with. And selfish people are simply draining.
    7. Left or Right? Right.
    8. How do you have fun? Deep convos with friends, reading/learning, ASL, dance, exploring, spending a day in a bookstore with a hot drink, movies, music.
    9. Do you consider your inner world structured, and if so, how? Basically, describe your inner world (or die!). Structured? Never! Yuck! I can rarely finish a thought. I jump from topic to topic, and can rarely express my feelings/thoughts in an understandable manner (verbally speaking).
    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 music that reflects my mood. Yes, music is often nostalgic. I can't always place what memory it's tied to, but I'll get this warm and fuzzy deja vu feeling.
    11. How annoyed are you at the positioning of my post, and the work-in-progressness of it? Very. The only reason why I'm taking part in an unfinished work is because of boredom.
    12. What are your "secret desires"? They're secret
    13. How do think people view you when they first meet you? They probably interpret my reserved nature as shyness. But I'm actually just not interested if I know the meeting won't go past small talk.
    14. What do you feel about introverts, and why? They are often more loyal. And they have a depth - or richness of personality that few extroverts have. They are generally more concerned about things that matter.
    15. What do you feel about extr(a/o)verts, and why? They're easy to figure out. Very expressive and sharing.
    16. What do perceive are the differences between male and females of your type? Never met a male INFJ. And I would rather not make assumptions.
    17. How annoyed are you at the vagueness of my questions? Not at all. It unleashes my creativity. It's fascinating - my initial thought response... seeing as there are a million different answers I could give you, but I narrow it down to this one or that one.
    18. What is the most common misconceptions people have of you? That I'm a flirt; I'm just friendly *shrug*. Or that I'm shy (see #13).
    19. What is the biggest thing about yourself that you hate? My forgetfulness.
    20. What is the biggest thing about yourself that you love? My friends can depend on me; I strive for integrity - I'm trustworthy and reliable etc.
    21. What questions would you ask for this? Nothing comes to mind.
    22. What is one thing that people don't know about you? I'm a huge nerd. Really, few of my friends know it.
    23. Would you date Costrin? Who the hell is that?
    24. How and why did you pick the avatar that you did? It's what I do; wonder and dream. And question.
    25. YO EAGLE IMA BEAT YOU
    26. How do you generally meet new friends? Through friends/family or church functions.
    27. What are some of your most important values? God and relationships. It's what truly matters in life.
    28. Hate it, love it. Dread it, want it. "It is but a figment," I fail to console. Then I pick up the pieces, it made of me. Repeat.
    29. What are your mornings generally like? Painful. I'm hypoglycemic so I usually wake up feeling absolutely famished, with an intense headache and a desire to kill. Once I make it past that phase thanks to a meal, I might pick up the Bible, study some ASL or do some researching on the net.

    I'm more annoyed with having to re-read and re-read this question to make sense of it.
    Heh.

    12. What are your "secret desires"?
    What makes you think you deserve to know my secrets?
    Magic.

    (btw, I like how you've accounted for both spelling of extra(o)vert, I love thoroughness in thought[/COLOR]
    Yeah I wouldn't want to upset anyone...

    No questions because I have yet to figure out what 'this' is. What questions I'd ask you two: what is the hypothesis of this little 'study'? What trends, patterns are you hoping to see? How did you decide on these questions (and what questions did you think of, but, chose to leave out - and why)? What is your purpose, objective and hypothesi(e)s?
    Well for me, I just kinda brainstormed some stuff that I've read that had some interesting cause in typology, but didn't have empirical evidence for. Purpose? Mostly curiosity. Eventually we're gonna do some comprehensive Jungian typology overview type thing.

    23. Would you date Costrin?
    Nah. I rather not go into the reasons (or actually, think up reasons for my 'no')
    You make Costrin sad.

    25. YO EAGLE IMA BEAT YOU
    PSST...BEAT YOUR MEAT FIRST.
    How do you know I didn't?

    (work in progress)
    Aren't we all?
    Indeed.
