Is it odd that I didn't really find the idea of any of the eight options disorienting at all? Because of that, I decided to go with what I thought I did the least of all of them (maybe I unconsciously avoid it or something). That was: "...focus on mysterious, implaceable symbols."
I liked answering in terms of 'what I like' for the second question, so I found some humor in choosing "...recognise things that sync with what I value, want, or believe in."
In short, ESFP (pretty close, I'd say!)
