And I can think of more productive use of my time besides self reflecting, unfortunately I keep coming back even though I wanna do something awesome with my time instead.
    You're an Fi, plain and simple. Maybe one with more pragmatic values than most, but an Fi nonetheless.

    Hi Forzen--

    How was your childhood bad?

    I'd say INFJ because you like to figure out why things are the way they are (esp people). That is very Ni dom. Your Fi (values) are obviously high too. I've you've had a lot of introversion that would not be unlikely.

    Personally, I thought Socrates was a bit over the top. Question, yeah, but question everything ad nauseum to the point of being a "gadfly?" (he described himself thus). He was 70, he wanted to die, and he used the hemlock death sentence to his advantage this way, even though he could have escaped.

    Why oppose so consistently a burgeoning democracy? How brilliant is that?

    Quite brilliant I'll say -- Democracy is a disaster. That's off-topic though.

    Most other systems are better than democracy. Dictatorship is the only one that I could think of that's worse, but that really depends on the dictator. The best is probably empowered monarchy, which is why it's been the most widely used throughout human history.

    Monarchy doesn't exclude democracy.

    Let's just say that my parent should have read a manual on how to raise their children. They should specially pay attention to the affect of verbal abuse on a child. It's typical for asian family to be physically abusive when disciplining their children, but verbal abuse have a more profound affect that are not really apparent to a person. However, I could be over-analyzing a problem that was never there...I don't know. Regardless, I like to explore all venues to fix my perceive problem.

    Furthermore, I took the ennegram test which gave me a result which describe me perfectly. I believe it was 5w6. I guess I'm having a midlife crisis in my 20s, /sadface. Anyway, thank you to all the people who took the time to give me some feedback, much appreciated.

    Off-topic, I like Socrates because of his conviction of righterousness that was unshakeable despite much opposition. It's a trait I admire in people as long as the person and myself have a mutual understanding that our point of view cannot be categorized under the right/wrong isle.
