    I take myself too seriously, and confuse "learning" with "doing".

    • Overly cautious, not aggressive enough
    • Too focused on doing what's "expected"
    • Unwarranted fear of disappointing people (now much better at taking criticism, after years of work)
    • Terrible at self-care, unaware of own physical limits, tendency to run self into the ground
    • Unwilling to rely on people for emotional support -- wasting and invalidating a really good support system
    • Behind this sweet exterior is an inner douchebag who sometimes escapes and has a grand old time
    • Too moralizing/meddlesome -- the dark side of what is usually a positive trait, i.e. lack of fear of stepping in and fixing things when they need fixing
    • Can someone interpret all these buried feelings, s'il vous plait? Je ne parle pas cette langue!


    Etc. Etc. Etc... could go on for several pages.

    *Poor self-presentation.

    * Find it diffcult to understand my own feelings or what they mean until well after the fact. I actually wish I was more in touch with my feelings, but I'm not good at it. This is also why I don't like people quizzing me on them.

    *Self-conscious about seeming shy, so sometimes talk when I don't have anything to say, instead of giving myself the silence to reply once I have something to say; I am especially bad at this if I like someone.

    *Not entirely sure as to what I want in life, or how to align that with my job.

    *Prone to boredom.

    *Out of touch with my body... learning anything kinesthetic requires a LOT of patience.

    *Tendency towards self-righteousness.

    *Too eager to put on masks according to what I think will please others.

    *Highly irritable.

    *Tendency to "research options" when what is needed is decisive action.

    *Tendency towards paranoia.

    *Prone to procrastination and laziness.

    * Have a hard time trusting people.

    * Not good at letting things go

    * Complain about people being oversensitive when I myself can be oversensitive.

    * Have only the vaugest sense of a "dream" or inner guidance... I know the generalities, but not the specifics, certainly not at the level of specialization required by society.

    * Dislike networking.

    * Does not consider myself boring, but is well aware that others do.

    * Clingy.

    * Not good at setting boundaries (this one is high priority, because I demand this so much of others.)

    * Doesn't take enough things seriously.

    How's that for an egotistical son-of-a-bitch NT who thinks he's perfect? I'm sure I'm not even scratching the surface, actually.

    That's the best way to answer, by indirectly talking yourself up

    What is boring to you? I'm curious. People seem to have many different ideas of what boring entails.

    I'm so boring that most everything excites me.

    Why not block out the boring people and surround yourself with interesting ones? (That's what I do.) Unless you find the vast majority of people to be boring, in which case easier said than done?

    I don't think that makes you boring.

    Plus, that makes for a much more interesting (and less high-maintenance) life.

    This is merely a matter of how much time I have to type this... which in itself is a problem (wasting time on the internet), but far from my greatest.

    - disorganized, bad with time management, focusing on task work, and attention to dry details
    - flip between being too indulgent & restrictive with life choices, hard time balancing moods & values
    - self-absorption, prone to moodiness & isolating self, too self-conscious & self-critical which inhibits
    - too passive in initiating things with others, too much wishful thinking
    - excessively idealistic hopes lead to extreme disappointment which gives too critical/negative attitude
    - poor surface social skills, appear unfriendly/snobby, not good at fitting into others' conversational flow
    - unaware of my body language & face, appear unhappy/unfriendly when just "thinking"
    - know-it-all, like to argue/debate too much, too bookish, not light-hearted or fun enough
    - too hot or cold, switch between cool indifference that's dull/passive to intense passion that's too aggressive
    - resist external vulnerability of emotional display & appear cold/disinterested for it, see others attempts to affect me as emotional manipulation (too sensitive)
    - appear too comfortable being a loner, am too comfortable being a loner
    - sense of shame inhibits too much
    - don't care about certain social protocol, can seem inappropriate, defiant, odd in a bad way, etc
    - a bit vain, or interest in aesthetics is construed this way by others
    - selfish with my time/energy at times
    - accommodate others, don't vocalize my needs, resent it
    - feel misunderstood, don't put much out there for people to work with
    - not enough self-discipline to do things I want to do and/or way too high standards for what one can accomplish in a day or what is a "good" final result
    - paralyzed by too high standards, discouraged too easily by less-than-perfect results, too all or nothing

    I could go on....

    My problem is the problem of the pariah. I don't connect with people as others do. That leaves one choice: Adapt, or Die alone and unfulfilled. I have to mold what would be a stand-out personality to conceal myself amongst a crowd of social automatons that attempt to purify or separate the abnormals. I have masks weaved of deceptive yet smooth silk that allow me to sit atop my shadowed throne of hidden condescension and derision of the public and still mimic the dreary life of a social being. Then comes the time when a connection, a faint glimmer, is made, and I realize solemnly that the disguise that was once my protection from the outside is now the cage that locks the tormented, true persona that cries for release.

    On an entirely different note, I also need to work on being less lazy.
