    1. Do you think that there is a point in planning events that are outside of your life span ?

    For future humanity and everyone outside myself, yes. If those who came before us didn't have a bit of foresight and concern for the future and things outside their immediate lives/self/viewpoint, we might not be nearly as well off as we are. Also, I find short-term gratification and solutions pretty silly and shortsighted, so when at all possible I find much more value in trying to look at things with a longer lens, anticipate future problems/needs, and account for those (I'm talking on a larger societal scale as well - governmental decisions, etc. I think current problems can often be the result of an accumulation of short-term patches. We could use more long-range thinkers.)

    Purely selfishly and maybe philosophically, it would be easy to argue there isn't a point. I mean, I could easily argue for myself that there isn't a point to doing anything, in the REALLY REALLY big picture. But that's a dismal path to take in life, so I choose to put forth some effort in the here and now.

    I also care quite a lot about life in general (note my avatar ) - this goes way beyond humanity, in some ways I could care less about humanity. So I'm all for trying to preserve and care for life right now, and for the future.

    I hate the lame-ass super-religious cop-out, the gist being 'God has a plan, therefore we don't have to concern ourselves with taking care of the future or of this planet because God will take care of all of that and we don't have to worry about anything'. (Although I'm agnostic bordering on atheist. But regardless, any sort of throwing-accountability-onto-God-or-someone-else and not taking personal accountability/responsibility for yourself and the world at large is irritating to me.)

    2. When you have a 20 not overy complicated scenarios you need no more than 5-10 seconds to figure out a few of them that are most likely. (and you are rarely wrong)

    Well, yeah, I often toss around out all of the possible scenarios/outcomes of things; that's how I operate. And yes, I can usually hone in on the most likely pretty quickly, assuming I have enough information. If I don't have enough information, and it's a lot of guesswork, then I'll spin around several possibilities without being able to hone in on one.

    3. You often can't sleep because you can't turn off your brain? So sometimes you spend entire night thinking.

    Very common, although thank goodness it's never the entire night.. worst would be maybe 4 hours.

    4. You feel comfortable with concepts of a "few billion years" and you use it every day when you are trying to put things in perspective?

    Yes, I'm very comfortable with the concept. Wouldn't say I use it every day but it's definitely a timeframe that's always in the back of my mind.

    5 How often do you walk longer than 10 blocks but you can't remember how you got to your current location?

    Replace walking 10 blocks with driving my car, and I can relate to it. I'll often go into auto-pilot while driving and it may be halfway to my destination and I don't have any memory of the visuals I must have seen while getting to that point.

    6. Did you at one point in your life planned a joke for longer than 3 hours ?

    I don't think so.

    7 Do you often hava a feeling that people seem to have some universal ways of dealing with each other but you simply can't figure how they do that ?

    As a pre-teen and teenager I was very vexed by social dynamics and what I observed at school. On some/many levels I didn't get it.

    Now I get it. Doesn't mean I like it, but I do feel like I know the 'universal ways of dealing with people'.

    But none of this is to say I actually DO fit in with most, or that I don't feel totally messed up quite a lot of the time when it comes to how I view my own relationships and ability to be in them. Let's just say I 'get it', but I don't know that my personality is such that it meshes seamlessly with that way of being.


    8 The only way you can be spontaneous is by deliberalty making a choice not to plan and ignoring all the plans that come to as the time goes by

    Pretty much!! I definitely Plan for my down-time and non-planned-for-days.

    9. You fairly quicky become bored while dealing with everything that you can't see as useful or something that you can implement somewhere ?

    I become bored when things are no longer a challenge and I feel there's nothing more to be gained or learned. Or when things become too routine and predictable.

    10 Going to school or work with one black and orange sock on your feet is something you are comfortable with ?

    No

    11 You think that everything you notice with your senses is just a picture created by your brain ? (and you are fullly comfortable with that)

    No, it's not something I actively think about or focus on, or even care about, even if there's truth to that.

    Yes, many of our aspects/senses could be whittled down to the neurological, or could be whittled down further to proteins and molecules and then to atoms and subparticles... but while that's fine and dandy, I don't let that view take up huge amounts of my brain space/thought-time.

    12 When problem solving (some bigger problem) you almost always start thinking from perspective of your goal and work your way towards you "current position" ? But in one moment you start moving from you current position towards the goal as well ?
    However at one pint you start to build small pieces between those two "lines" that you are going towards each other ?


    Hmm, not sure. I'd need specific examples to really answer this. I tend to think there are so many different components to it that go on simultaneously that it would be hard for me to really break it down.


    14 You get annoyed with people because of something they might do in the future ?

    I get annoyed when people repeat the same mistake over and over without seeming to learn anything. I get annoyed for other reasons too. lol.

    15 Most of the time you have real doubts that you should live by social norms ? Like wanting to be rich, being high in some socially influental hierarchy or having a SO that loves you ...... etc ?

    I've never felt compelled to live by social norms. I dislike many aspects of our society, but there are positive elements as well. Just like in another society or in another century I might approve of a different set of their norms and reject another set.

    16 You can't answer any question without knowinng the context ? (actually you can but you don't like to do that since context is EVERYTHING)

    I do like as much background info/ the general gist, yes. I tend to need the big-picture before I am able to hone in on the details or find the 'answer'. I don't do well with random details and then trying to grasp the big picture. Need big picture first.

    17 If you ever had a serious existental crisis at what age did is started and ended ? (if it ended)

    Started age 24-ish, ended completely maybe age 27, getting into age 28.

    18 You put people in all kinds of situations just so see how they will react ?
    No

    19 Do you have a probem verbalizing your thought because you have a problem defining perspective ?
    I have problems verbalizing my thoughts because they're typically the result of a lot of introspection and behind-the-scenes brooding and connecting-the-dots. Many various subjects combined, maybe. I'm also not factually-oriented or detail-oriented, so I don't have specifics, or 'proof', to support my thoughts, so my thoughts aren't really fodder for actual discussions/debates.

    20 Do others think you need to relax, simple, fun and be less mean/direct with people ?

    Others have thought I need to be more mellow, maybe. I've also never been the life of the party.

    I don't have issues being mean or too direct with people, however; I tend to keep the majority of my opinions/thoughts to myself because I don't like knowingly hurting people. I'm all about diplomacy. Also, most of the time I see little purpose in sharing my thoughts, if I already know the other person isn't going to react well to them or isn't going to understand them.

    1. Do you think that there is a point in planning events that are outside of your life span ?

    No. I don't think there is a point to anything, but that doesn't stop me from doing things anyway.

    2. When you have a 20 not overly complicated scenarios you need no more than 5-10 seconds to figure out a few of them that are most likely. (and you are rarely wrong)

    Yes.

    3. You often can't sleep because you can't turn off your brain? So sometimes you spend entire night thinking.

    Not really, I sleep easy, unless I'm seriously stressed about something.

    4. You feel comfortable with concepts of a "few billion years" and you use it every day when you are trying to put things in perspective?

    Yes, no.

    5. How often do you walk longer than 10 blocks but you can't remember how you got to your current location?

    It happens.

    6. Did you at one point in your life planned a joke for longer than 3 hours ?

    Not really.

    7. Do you often have a feeling that people seem to have some universal ways of dealing with each other but you simply can't figure how they do that ?

    I generally know the dynamics, but don't always care to or am not able to successfully implement them myself.

    8. The only way you can be spontaneous is by deliberalty making a choice not to plan and ignoring all the plans that come to as the time goes by

    No, spontaneity comes naturally to me.

    9. You fairly quicky become bored while dealing with everything that you can't see as useful or something that you can implement somewhere ?

    No.

    10. Going to school or work with one black and orange sock on your feet is something you are comfortable with ?

    If I'm wearing shoes, it doesn't really matter.

    11. You think that everything you notice with your senses is just a picture created by your brain ? (and you are fullly comfortable with that)

    Depending on the perspective this can be true, but it's largely irrelevant to me. As to whether I am comfortable with it, absolutely.

    12. When problem solving (some bigger problem) you almost always start thinking from perspective of your goal and work your way towards you "current position" ? But in one moment you start moving from you current position towards the goal as well ?
    However at one point you start to build small pieces between those two "lines" that you are going towards each other ?


    It's not that structured.

    14. You get annoyed with people because of something they might do in the future ?

    Yes.

    15. Most of the time you have real doubts that you should live by social norms ? Like wanting to be rich, being high in some socially influental hierarchy or having a SO that loves you ...... etc ?

    Yes.

    16. You can't answer any question without knowinng the context ? (actually you can but you don't like to do that since context is EVERYTHING)

    Yes.

    17. If you ever had a serious existental crisis at what age did is started and ended ? (if it ended)

    13, still going.

    18. You put people in all kinds of situations just so see how they will react ?

    Sometimes.

    19 Do you have a probem verbalizing your thought because you have a problem defining perspective ?

    Yes.

    20 Do others think you need to relax, simple, fun and be less mean/direct with people ?

    Rarely, I'm quite laid back.

    1. Do you think that there is a point in planning events that are outside of your life span ?

    Well I do care about it. If I try to follow my own principles and values in lifetime, then I cannot just ignore them for things happening after my death if I can influence them. Otherwise why would I follow them in lifetime?

    2. When you have a 20 not overy complicated scenarios you need no more than 5-10 seconds to figure out a few of them that are most likely. (and you are rarely wrong)

    Not sure I understand the question right. Don't know, 5-10 seconds sounds fast for 20 scenarios, but possibly it only sounds so. Don't know what to answer.

    3. You often can't sleep because you can't turn off your brain? So sometimes you spend entire night thinking.

    Happens so often :/

    4. You feel comfortable with concepts of a "few billion years" and you use it every day when you are trying to put things in perspective?

    Again not sure I understand the question, but if I do then probably mostly no.

    5 How often do you walk longer than 10 blocks but you can't remember how you got to your current location?

    It happens sometimes.

    6. Did you at one point in your life planned a joke for longer than 3 hours ?

    No :P

    7 Do you often hava a feeling that people seem to have some universal ways of dealing with each other but you simply can't figure how they do that ?

    Sometimes I feel like that.

    8 The only way you can be spontaneous is by deliberalty making a choice not to plan and ignoring all the plans that come to as the time goes by ?

    No.

    9. You fairly quicky become bored while dealing with everything that you can't see as useful or something that you can implement somewhere ?

    No.

    10 Going to school or work with one black and orange sock on your feet is something you are comfortable with ?

    When I know that people won't see it, and they won't if I wear shoes, I wouldn't care.

    11 You think that everything you notice with your senses is just a picture created by your brain ? (and you are fullly comfortable with that)

    Don't know what to answer.

    12 When problem solving (some bigger problem) you almost always start thinking from perspective of your goal and work your way towards you "current position" ? But in one moment you start moving from you current position towards the goal as well ?
    However at one pint you start to build small pieces between those two "lines" that you are going towards each other ?


    I have no idea, tbh I never have observed how I come to problem solvings. I don't think I really think about solutions in such a structured way.

    14 You get annoyed with people because of something they might do in the future ?

    Yes.

    15 Most of the time you have real doubts that you should live by social norms ? Like wanting to be rich, being high in some socially influental hierarchy or having a SO that loves you ...... etc ?

    Yes.

    16 You can't answer any question without knowinng the context ? (actually you can but you don't like to do that since context is EVERYTHING)

    It depends I think. Sometimes it is fun to do it just for the sake of doing it.

    17 If you ever had a serious existental crisis at what age did is started and ended ? (if it ended)

    I would call in two such situations in my life. The last was from age 18 until recently. I feel now good since some time, but from past experience I hesitate to say it is already over with 100% safeness. The first I cannot remember anymore when it was, maybe from 13/14 to 16/17.

    18 You put people in all kinds of situations just so see how they will react ?

    In reality not so much, but maybe sometimes in my mind. Not sure.

    19 Do you have a probem verbalizing your thought because you have a problem defining perspective ?

    Maybe.

    20 Do others think you need to relax, simple, fun and be less mean/direct with people ?

    I don't know what others think from me. I don't think people think I need to relax more (actually many might think I am a lazy bum), but some people think probably I should be more fun and MORE direct with people.

    1. Do you think that there is a point in planning events that are outside of your life span ?

    no... and I don't even beleive in planning activities farther away than the next couple of years either (other than the idea of putting some money aside for retirement)... Planning for things outside of your lifespan sounds so CONTROLLING

    2. When you have a 20 not overy complicated scenarios you need no more than 5-10 seconds to figure out a few of them that are most likely. (and you are rarely wrong)

    I trust my instincts and they rarely let me down

    3. You often can't sleep because you can't turn off your brain? So sometimes you spend entire night thinking.

    when I don't sleep because of thought it's usually me mentally running through a list of things I've done and when I'm convinced I'll probably get called out and punished for them

    4. You feel comfortable with concepts of a "few billion years" and you use it every day when you are trying to put things in perspective?

    I'm more concerned with now... but the concept of infinity doesn't disturb me... it just doesn't really come up in my every day thinking!

    5 How often do you walk longer than 10 blocks but you can't remember how you got to your current location?

    how much have I had to drink?

    6. Did you at one point in your life planned a joke for longer than 3 hours ?

    the very concept of PLANNING a joke ruins it for me... humor is supposed to be off the cuff or it loses its magic



    7 Do you often hava a feeling that people seem to have some universal ways of dealing with each other but you simply can't figure how they do that ?

    No... I'm good at communicating with people... I can even use my body to convey what I want it to properly... I'm that good

    however, if they're all speaking a language I don't understand I have to fall back entirely on body language... and I still do pretty well!

    8 The only way you can be spontaneous is by deliberalty making a choice not to plan and ignoring all the plans that come to as the time goes by ?

    no... definitley not... PLANNING is what's difficult for me to wrap my head around!

    9. You fairly quicky become bored while dealing with everything that you can't see as useful or something that you can implement somewhere ?

    if it's entertaining all is good... if we're talking reading a textbook on theory it'll get tossed in favor of reading up on it on wikipedia or so... if it's necissary at all

    10 Going to school or work with one black and orange sock on your feet is something you are comfortable with ?

    yes... and if anyone points it out I'll make fun of them for it

    probably not orange though... I really don't like the color orange....

    11 You think that everything you notice with your senses is just a picture created by your brain ? (and you are fullly comfortable with that)

    no... I love my senses, I revel in my senses, I'd never debase them with such a bland label

    12 When problem solving (some bigger problem) you almost always start thinking from perspective of your goal and work your way towards you "current position" ? But in one moment you start moving from you current position towards the goal as well ?
    However at one pint you start to build small pieces between those two "lines" that you are going towards each other ?


    I usually just jump in and work on it physically, where things make more sense... having a routine approach to solving problems really isn't my thing

    13. If you do anything like in the question 12 do you usually imagine multiple way of solving the problem ? Or wonder if the is actually a problem in the first place ? (even if many people say it is)

    like I said... I physically jump in to solve it... and if it's not something that can be done that way there's a good chance I'll delegate it to someone else

    14 You get annoyed with people because of something they might do in the future ?

    no... that's not really fair...

    15 Most of the time you have real doubts that you should live by social norms ? Like wanting to be rich, being high in some socially influental hierarchy or having a SO that loves you ...... etc ?

    I pick and choose what suites me... I don't want money or power, though having someone to go home to at night is nice... not because it's a social norm, but because I like sex and am fond of said person

    16 You can't answer any question without knowinng the context ? (actually you can but you don't like to do that since context is EVERYTHING)

    is this a trick question?

    17 If you ever had a serious existental crisis at what age did is started and ended ? (if it ended)

    not existential... personal... and the damned thing won't shut up!

    18 You put people in all kinds of situations just so see how they will react ?

    nothing serious... seeing someone's reaction to certain things is pretty priceless though

    19 Do you have a probem verbalizing your thought because you have a problem defining perspective ?

    I verbalize before the thought is even COMPLETE!

    20 Do others think you need to relax, simple, fun and be less mean/direct with people ?

    no... unless I'm mad at them I'm pretty laid back

    Ok I presume this all. Thanks for the info/data.

    Now I am going to reflect on this a little bit if you don't mind.

    1. Do you think that there is a point in planning events that are outside of your life span ?

    Sure -- Life insurance, paid out to my kids, for one.


    2. When you have a 20 not overy complicated scenarios you need no more than 5-10 seconds to figure out a few of them that are most likely. (and you are rarely wrong)

    I see things in flashes without having to really analyze it in detail. That's because I did all the analyzing when younger, and nowadays I just skip over things I've already worked through.


    3. You often can't sleep because you can't turn off your brain? So sometimes you spend entire night thinking.

    One of my more annoying issues. I usually beat it by either sleeping pills, running a white noise machine (which helps), or being so tired I just fall asleep.

    4. You feel comfortable with concepts of a "few billion years" and you use it every day when you are trying to put things in perspective?

    My thought: This thread won't matter in a few billion years, why are you wasting everyone's time on this forum posting about it? (Annoying to hear, isn't it? Most people will find the perspective irrelevant and irksome.)

    5 How often do you walk longer than 10 blocks but you can't remember how you got to your current location?

    I don't walk, I drive. And yes, I've driven on autopilot numerous times. A little freaky.


    6. Did you at one point in your life planned a joke for longer than 3 hours ?

    Yes.


    7 Do you often hava a feeling that people seem to have some universal ways of dealing with each other but you simply can't figure how they do that ?

    I figured it out.


    8 The only way you can be spontaneous is by deliberalty making a choice not to plan and ignoring all the plans that come to as the time goes by ?

    I'm naturally spontaneous in terms of always wanting to fit something new and interesting in. However, in other ways I do plan out strategies and such and hate to have them disrupted.

    9. You fairly quicky become bored while dealing with everything that you can't see as useful or something that you can implement somewhere ?

    It depends on what it is. I'm a sucker for trivia and figuring out how things work. However, on the job or in functional environments, please don't waste my time with pointless diversion, I want to cleanly and efficiently get the job done.

    10 Going to school or work with one black and orange sock on your feet is something you are comfortable with ?

    You have orange socks?
    Maybe on Halloween. Otherwise please do everyone a favor and lock them up.


    11 You think that everything you notice with your senses is just a picture created by your brain ? (and you are fullly comfortable with that)

    Senses are nerve impulses. Nothing more, nothing less. What happens in the brain is perception.

    12 When problem solving (some bigger problem) you almost always start thinking from perspective of your goal and work your way towards you "current position" ? But in one moment you start moving from you current position towards the goal as well ?
    However at one pint you start to build small pieces between those two "lines" that you are going towards each other ?


    That's a valid strategy. It depends on the circumstances as to whether it is helpful or not.

    13. If you do anything like in the question 12 do you usually imagine multiple way of solving the problem ? Or wonder if the is actually a problem in the first place ? (even if many people say it is)

    Of course. How can you settle on the best strategy if you don't consider all of them? Or even meta the problem? Why solve something you don't really need to solve, if you can twist it around to be a help instead of a hindrance?

    14 You get annoyed with people because of something they might do in the future ?

    It's usually based on something they've done yesterday that lets me know they might do it in the future.

    15 Most of the time you have real doubts that you should live by social norms ? Like wanting to be rich, being high in some socially influental hierarchy or having a SO that loves you ...... etc ?

    Everyone lives their own life. No one is obligated to live according to norms. However, if you reject norms, then you lose the benefits of society. If you can live with that, go for it.

    16 You can't answer any question without knowinng the context ? (actually you can but you don't like to do that since context is EVERYTHING)

    I was going to say "Context is everything" but you beat me to it.

    17 If you ever had a serious existental crisis at what age did is started and ended ? (if it ended)

    God. When WASN'T I having one of those? Probably the last year or two in my life have been the happiest I've ever experienced and I no longer question my reasons to live or what life is about, I can embrace universal ambiguities. And I'm no spring chicken.

    18 You put people in all kinds of situations just so see how they will react ?

    I model them in my head. I'll sometimes say things to see how people respond, but I try to avoid manipulating people purposefully just for my own curiosity, as it's rather offensive and unfair. So I mentally model them.

    19 Do you have a probem verbalizing your thought because you have a problem defining perspective ?

    Not sure what you mean, but sometimes it's hard to pick the right perspective in order to describe/approach something from. Too many options, I'm not sure which is best, and I can seem scattered. Picking one angle also seems confining.

    20 Do others think you need to relax, simple, fun and be less mean/direct with people ?

    No, most people like me and think I'm fun.

    Ok this is enough for now.

    Good, that took me a whole 8 minutes to get through, I need to go get coffee!

    Yes, but I am a mother so.


    2. When you have a 20 not overy complicated scenarios you need no more than 5-10 seconds to figure out a few of them that are most likely. (and you are rarely wrong)
    True

    3. You often can't sleep because you can't turn off your brain? So sometimes you spend entire night thinking.
    It is 4:21am and I am filing out this questionnaire......


    4. You feel comfortable with concepts of a "few billion years" and you use it every day when you are trying to put things in perspective?
    Like how historical patterns repeat themselves, and gaining a wide range knowledge where sometimes you can say with accuracy "This is just like Salem!" ? Then yes.

    The whole perspective would be more like what is referenced in question 19.

    5 How often do you walk longer than 10 blocks but you can't remember how you got to your current location?
    Never

    6. Did you at one point in your life planned a joke for longer than 3 hours ?
    Yes, I couldn't wait all day to ask the teacher in anatomy if there was more than one way to skin the cat.

    7 Do you often hava a feeling that people seem to have some universal ways of dealing with each other but you simply can't figure how they do that ?
    Yes, like there is some comraderie that everyone gets, and I have no clue as to what they are talking about. And about as much a chance every really getting to understand it, because my own values pick it apart the closer I look.

    8 The only way you can be spontaneous is by deliberalty making a choice not to plan and ignoring all the plans that come to as the time goes by ?
    Yes, I call this planned chaos. Setting the perimeters of a situation, then turning my brain off once inside.

    9. You fairly quicky become bored while dealing with everything that you can't see as useful or something that you can implement somewhere ?
    Frustrated would be more likely.

    10 Going to school or work with one black and orange sock on your feet is something you are comfortable with ?
    Yes

    11 You think that everything you notice with your senses is just a picture created by your brain ? (and you are fullly comfortable with that)
    No, I actually have a pretty concrete grasp on my sensory world, and appreciate it fully.


    12 When problem solving (some bigger problem) you almost always start thinking from perspective of your goal and work your way towards you "current position" ? But in one moment you start moving from you current position towards the goal as well ?
    However at one pint you start to build small pieces between those two "lines" that you are going towards each other ?
    Hm, sometimes back planning can cut out a lot of the contingencies of future planning so yes. I do this only to create an outline of the path that needs to be taken, than do futuristic contingency planning to fill in the more relevant "what ifs".

    13. If you do anything like in the question 12 do you usually imagine multiple way of solving the problem ? Or wonder if the is actually a problem in the first place ? (even if many people say it is)
    I don't usually doubt the problem. I do come up with multiple solutions, but there is always one that sticks out as best. Well like 99.3% of the time. The other solutions are less ideal ways to get there, but still ways.


    14 You get annoyed with people because of something they might do in the future ?
    No, but I will be cautious of it. If it is not a risk I am willing to take I walk away, if it is no big deal, I will plan ahead so that should it happen there would be no negative impact for me.

    15 Most of the time you have real doubts that you should live by social norms ? Like wanting to be rich, being high in some socially influental hierarchy or having a SO that loves you ...... etc ?
    Sometimes, when I was younger yes. Now I am over that and just want to see wtf I can accomplish with the time I have left on this planet. More of a personal goal.

    16 You can't answer any question without knowinng the context ? (actually you can but you don't like to do that since context is EVERYTHING)
    Yes, I can provide an idea but it will be laced with gross generalities. I will not specifically hit on anything. Much different than how I speak when I know the context.

    17 If you ever had a serious existental crisis at what age did is started and ended ? (if it ended)
    No. I remember not being sure if I could be considered good and bad before, but I think I chalked it up to an ill defined perception of others (blah blah blah). Coming to the conclusion that no matter how I appear on the outside I am a fundamentally better person on the inside. While others may put on a veil of good, and be disgustingly ugly on the inside.


    18 You put people in all kinds of situations just so see how they will react ?
    I do not need to, people put themselves in enough situations. If I do engage in this behavior it is usually for social kicks. Like showing a magic trick.


    19 Do you have a probem verbalizing your thought because you have a problem defining perspective ?
    When it comes to the deeper things yes. It seems like everything I say is just slightly off. I tend to get frustrated like I am not communicating the entire concept. Like.....but it is soooo simple!......It looks just like.........gah!

    20 Do others think you need to relax, simple, fun and be less mean/direct with people ?
    I was told in vent maybe ten min ago I need to relax.

    I am never really directed to be less direct or mean. Usually someone will say something like "Jeeze TG that was not called for." To which I almost always reply, "What?"
