    1. What is your personality type?
    INFJ with strong Ti. enneagram 2w3 sx/sp

    2. Are you male or female?
    male

    3. What country do you live in now? What country are you born in?
    USA, USA

    4. What cultural background are you?
    uh...white?

    5. What religion are you? What religion is your family?
    no religion for me. my mom is a reform jew and my dad is a conservative jew.

    Questions
    6. What career are you in or looking to be in? What are you doing right now to help you achieve this career goal?
    i'm probably going to be a therapist (psy. d maybe?). i'm currently at UCB studying cognitive science.

    7. What is your friendships like with both genders? How many good friends do you have and why are you friends with these people?
    i only have 1 male friend who i'm comfortable opening up with. i generally feel much more comfortable with females.

    true, deep friendship for me is defined by a specific connection-feeling. i'd say i only have about 5 friends that fit that definition, 4 of which are females. i have many many other people i'd call my close friends, and i have fun with them, but i wouldn't go to them with my problems.

    8. What paranoias do you have?
    i'm not a paranoid person really.

    9. What are your vices?
    drugs. i'm on a sober streak right now, but i've wasted a lot of time on drugs. i've never done anything physically dangerous (i'm defining that myself lol) to myself or others, though.

    10. What are your fears?
    hmmmm...i guess i have 2 main fears at this point in my life. the first one is that i won't be able to find another girlfriend as good as my last one. the second one is that someone i love will die (this has already happened to me twice, so it's semi-warranted even if it's irrational -- it's not like one person dying makes anyone else more likely to die, but i can't help being scared about it)

    11. What is your relationship like with your parents? siblings (if you had any)?
    i have a younger brother (INFP). we've always been really good friends. i wasn't the type of older brother that beats his younger brother up

    my mom is, and always has been kinda crazy, and our personalities don't really mesh at all, even though we have 3 letters in common (she's ISFJ). my childhood consisted of her screaming at me everyday for stupid nonsense; and i lived my life until i was about 17 avoiding her as much as i could -- as long as she wasn't yelling at my younger brother. when she targeted him, i would step in and take the brunt if i could :-/

    my dad's insanely smart and analytical, but he was completely withdrawn in my childhood (he's INTP). i took on his strategy of dealing with my mom most of the time -- that is, be quiet and analyze. (this is why i used to test as INTP). he's a good guy, but he really needs to work on his assertiveness.

    12. How are you with expressing emotion in public?
    i'm fine talking about emotion. i am not fine SHOWING emotion. not many people have seen me let down my guard. (i don't hide my feelings, though. i talk about them all the time. its just that it's always from an intellectual perspective)

    13. How do you think people saw you in high school? How do you think people see you now?
    they saw me as someone who could help them with math/computer science/physics. they also saw me as a good musician (i got voted best musician in my yearbook lol). i was pretty reserved, though...not many people got to know the real me.

    now, i'm seen much more as an advice-giver/pillar of support. i'm also known as someone who loves debate/philosophy.

    And finally....
    14. What do you see as the point to your life and life in general?
    life has no objective point. life has no objective meaning. so i might as will do whatever makes me happy, right? luckily, it makes me happy to help others

    1. What is your personality type? INxP - I waver back and forth, but am never really able to decide if INTP or INFP is correct. Both, probably.
    2. Are you male or female? Male
    3. What country do you live in now? What country are you born in? USA for both
    4. What cultural background are you? Euro-Mutt.
    5. What religion are you? What religion is your family? I'm pretty much an atheist, but not a particularly militant one. My family is all Christian (various denominations)

    Questions
    6. What career are you in or looking to be in? What are you doing right now to help you achieve this career goal? I'm currently a web application programmer / project leader. Not sure it's what I want to do forever, but it's better than lab research, my last job. I'd *like* to be a writer (yeah, I know, fat chance) - I'm seriously considering taking some creative writing classes next semester to give myself a kick in the pants to get going on it.
    7. What is your friendships like with both genders? How many good friends do you have and why are you friends with these people? Hmm. Almost all of my friendships as an adult have been of the the "one among a group of friends" variety, and I'm usually not very outspoken and wind up on the fringe of the group. It's been years since I really had a friend I did one-on-one stuff with (aside from some online games, but even that was years ago now). I do pretty well as friends with both men and women.
    8. What paranoias do you have? Not sure I have anything I'd qualify as a paranoia - occasionally I get the "everybody's watching me" thing when I'm in a social situation with a group of strangers, but that's about it.
    9. What are your vices? No real traditional vices - my problem tends to be more along the lines that I find it very, very easy to say no to anything, and wind up doing nothing at all. As such my failures tend to be more along the lines of missing out on the good things, rather than falling prey to the bad ones.
    10. What are your fears? Failure to live up to my own unrealistic expectations, dying alone (bad cliche, I know, but basically true)
    11. What is your relationship like with your parents? siblings (if you had any)? Not bad, but not close. I don't have much in common with them, I think, and I live on the other side of the country (they all live in the same town). I've had some bad times with my Mom in the past, but we get along fine now (although I'm still wary around her). My Dad's kind of got his own thing going on these days, and my sister and I get along fine, but neither of us really makes an effort to stay in touch much. Just very different people.
    12. How are you with expressing emotion in public? I don't, for the most part. Although I rarely am "in public" in a situation where the possibility could arise. When I was much younger (10-ish?), I tended to lose it occasionally and cry in public, but after getting the "boys don't cry" speech I learned to stop that. If I were to lose control and get emotional in public now, I'd likely be very embarrassed about it.
    13. How do you think people saw you in high school? How do you think people see you now? In high school, I was voted "most intellectual" - which basically meant that I was the the least unpopular nerdy guy. Socially, I was a nonentity in high school, but I got along with most everyone. I'm not as certain how people see me now. Guessing, I'd say that I'm considered as smart, occasionally funny, nice, but very, very reserved and a little "out of it".
    And finally....
    14. What do you see as the point to your life and life in general? I think that there really isn't a point, except for what we choose to make of it at any given time. Most often I'd consider it to explore and expand horizons, to see and learn new things.

    I'm gonna go ahead and qualify this post the same way I did my introductory post - only this time I can safely say it's NOT worth reading. I was bored and thought I would type this out, but it turned out to be a rant of epic proportions and sizeable tangents.

    Male

    ...Norwegian

    5. What religion are you? What religion is your family?

    Questions

    6. What career are you in or looking to be in? What are you doing right now to help you achieve this career goal?
    Medicine. Finishing pre-med (not exactly, diff. system here but I'll call it that for convenience) classes this year, starting med school next fall.

    7. What is your friendships like with both genders? How many good friends do you have and why are you friends with these people?
    I have friends of both gender, but I'm generally closer to all my female friends. I think it's easier and less hassle to have a close friendship with a girl than a guy, although I can't really say why. I have lots of not-so-close friends, and maybe 2-3 very close ones (2 girls, 1 guy). I say 2-3 because I think I just lost my best girl friend over the past two weeks. She suddenly started either ignoring me or replying in a short and evasive manner everytime I've tried talking to her. It's the classic defense mechanism when you're in love with someone who you've realized don't feel the same way - you get hurt and angry because of it and tend to focus it on the obvious choice - the other person in question. I do hope it passes though, I enjoyed our close friendship very much.

    I move around a LOT. Since junior high I've been to 4 schools, 3 unis, living in 5 cities in 2 countries. Thus I'm fairly used to losing all my friends and getting new ones basically at least once a year.

    I have one single remaining friend from my childhood but we live in different cities so I very rarely see him anymore, except for when I'm visiting my family. Of all my current friends, I only expect to be in touch with one of them a year from now, when I'll most likely be at a new uni once once again for med school.

    I don't really mind though, I make new friends easily at each new place I go. I always seem to get 2-3 close friends (in the sense that I will open up somewhat to them, for some reason a dispropportionate amount of people will gladly open up to me though) and a bunch of people that I hang out with from time to time. I have quite a few online friends but most of them are former rl friends that are now just geographically "out of reach".

    8. What paranoias do you have?
    None, really.

    9. What are your vices?
    Lack of dedication over time to what I do, I get bored very easily.

    10. What are your fears?
    Having to rely on parents for financial security during 6 years of med school.
    Oh and appearing emotionally vulnerable.

    11. What is your relationship like with your parents? siblings (if you had any)?
    Parents - good, younger sister - great now that we no longer live under the same roof, younger step brother - good, don't talk to him much though.

    12. How are you with expressing emotion in public?
    I express joy and positive emotions easily. I can express anger and disappointment in a fairly controlled, targetted manner, where I might somewhat harshly explain what I feel about something without actually expressing the emotion so much. Thus people tell me I "never get angry", although I can be assertive at times. I can and do express "anger" in the form of "this and that pisses me off" but that's not really anger, it's just a strong opinion about something. I absolutely never express any form of grief or sorrow in public.

    I appear emotionally very stable, caring towards others but without much trouble myself - which is definitely what I'm aiming for as well. Truthfully though my head can be a total mess at times, but my way of clearing things out isn't by talking it out, it's just being with other people, just socially doing whatever or going out drinking.

    Talking about other people's emotions and problems is easy though. I tend to offer very rational advice on things, which in itself could be seen as irrational because when emotions have the upper hand even a devoted rational (i.e me) realizes that what most people need is just someone to listen, not someone to "explain it away". Ironically that seems to be part of the reason why it works so well in the end anyway, by not reinforcing the emotions but just offering an outside view. I'm not sure about this though, I often wonder why needy people choose me to lean on. I'm not at all bothered by it though, I know how to establish my own limits.

    ...I realize I kinda went off on a tangent in this paragraph, so:

    13. How do you think people saw you in high school? How do you think people see you now?
    Probably the most defining paragraph in my case... I think I am an extravert by forced change. Moving around a lot, changing schools etc I used to kind of settle with myself, and I really did prefer my own company for a long time (up until mid high school I'd guess). I was the textbook definition of an introvert, being with people was tiresome and I needed to be alone both to get re-energized and to sort things out in my head.

    I'm not sure exactly where that changed, or how/why, but I think at some point I got really sick of living like I did, and in the past ~3-4 years I've definitely been the polar opposite of what I used to be. I used to be shy in new social situations, now I thrive on it. Now I go absolutely crazy if I have to sit at home a quiet afternoon/evening with nothing to do. I also make friends without consciously trying to, I think the only thing I'm lacking to call myself a full-blown extravert is the never-ending explosive energy I see some people have, that just drags everyone else with them wherever they go. I'm not that person.

    To specifically answer the question in light of this, at least up until mid HS people viewed me as a kind shy, geeky introvert who had lots of quirky knowledge about various topics and did very well at school.

    Nowadays I think people view me very differently. I am many things, really: I'm the smartass that spews snappy remarks and sarcastic comments at everything and everyone, but who for some reason gets away with it instead of being the eccentric loner. I'm the sociable person that talks to everyone, everywhere. I'm also the honest optimist that tells people more or less light-heartedly to fuck off when they complain about how they're gonna fail this and that exam when everyone knows they'll do great. Oh and my friends tell me they won't bother arguing with me because I seem to enjoy it too much

    In addition, I'm still very much a geek. I know too much random trivia and my grades are too good not to be seen as one, but I wouldn't have it any other way

    And finally....

    14. What do you see as the point to your life and life in general?

    Life's absurd, it holds no meaning or objective value, which leaves me free to do exactly what I want with it. Thus my upper, foremost goal in life is to maximize my own enjoyment of it while it lasts. I fully believe we are all 100% egoistical. Helping those around me and making a lasting impression on the world is something I strive to do, but I freely acknowledge that it is for completely selfish reasons, basically culminating in my enjoyment of being appreciated.

    Male

    USA/USA
    4. What cultural background are you?

    5. What religion are you? What religion is your family?
    Raised Christian - First in the Babtist church and then later, after my father gave up on the church, in the Episcopal Church. Right now, a respectful non-believer

    Questions

    6. What career are you in or looking to be in? What are you doing right now to help you achieve this career goal?
    Had a long, accidental career as a Systems Programmer on IBM mainframes. My goal right now is to become a writer, but I tend to think about it a lot more than actually work towards it.
    7. What is your friendships like with both genders? How many good friends do you have and why are you friends with these people?
    As a kid I had a great friendship with two other males. After leaving home for college most of my close friendships have been with women. Right now I have one close friendship. I think we are friends because we are very much alike and have an intuitive understanding of each other. Also, we laugh at the same things and it is hard to say too many good things about that.

    None that I can think of.
    9. What are your vices?
    I get lazy. Thinking about doing things a lot more than actually doing them.

    11. What is your relationship like with your parents? siblings (if you had any)?
    My mother and I hated each other. My father was distant until I was older and then we became good friends. My two sisters and I are estranged - for the most part a by-product of the war that took place between my parents when they divorced.
    12. How are you with expressing emotion in public?
    I tend to control myself very tightly in public.
    13. How do you think people saw you in high school? How do you think people see you now?
    In high school, I was the long hair, dope fiend, who also made A's and was in Honor Society. Kind of a strange mix. Later, in my job, I was the friendly, do anything for you, hyper-responsible, worker. Very stressful!
