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 ?
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 ?
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.
