How did you get into typology? What interested you about psychology?
I actually got into psychology because of a friend who playfully remarked I was kind of sociopathic, and it made me wonder what actually constituted a sociopath, so, naturally, I began researching it to find out and entered the realm of personality disorders. I don't really remember actually consciously learning the information, it was like I absorbed the information from simply reading things here and there, and that's why I'm pretty decent at mental illness related stuff. After learning about personality disorders and determining how I fit into the world based on the extremes of society, I began to recall a Keirsey MBTI test I had to take my freshman year of highschool (which was an extremely inaccurate test looking back on it, and it only divided us into the 4 dichotomies; I scored NT). So I began trying to figure out what my type was, and it turns out I'm extremely hard to type because of a chameleon-esque effect. I find psychology extremely interesting in figuring out how people work, all of the little biochemical reactions taking place in the brain to create these somewhat unique personalities.
What do you do for a living? What do you do for a college degree? Do you like your job? Is there something you'd prefer to be doing? Why? What are you like when doing your job? Are you much different at home?
Question N/A, not in college yet. Plan to major in Physics due to how interesting and fun it looks.
What aspects of your life are you especially good with? What do you feel that you are especially bad at? What have you done to draw admiration or criticism from others?
I'm good at being imaginative and finding creative solutions to problems. I'm good at being logical (aren't we all though) and I attempt to stay as objective as possible in problem solving situations. I'm good at envisioning, I can come up with extremely intricate plans out of thin air and plan out ways to achieve it.
EDIT: forgot to mention the bad.
I'm bad at establishing intimate relationships. I have above average hand-eye coordination when throwing or catching but other than that I'm like a dyspraxic. I'm extremely arrogant, but perhaps a plus to this is that I'm extremely self-aware. I have a sensitivity to criticism and rejection that I've been trying to tone down and it has been working. Most of my emotions are superficial and controlled to conform to the person I'm talking to unconsciously. I'm extremely, extremely bad at spelling and precision/detail work.
Admiration from others: I've been admired for being able to understand almost every concept presented to me in depth and be able to explain it thoroughly to others. I've been admired for my insights and advice. I've been admired for how I can twist and turn any argument despite clear evidence if I choose to.
Criticism from others: I've been criticized for being extremely introverted and insensitive to strangers yet at the same time appearing out-going to my friends. I've been criticized for not looking at what's in front of me, as I'm constantly churning out plans and ideas in my mind to notice what would seem to others as obvious. I've been criticized for being exceptionally lazy in everything that doesn't interest me, but I still tried to maintain some interest in the fields that don't interest me.
What sort of environment would you feel most at home in? Describe its atmosphere and surroundings, its inhabitants, the conversations or lack thereof, the philosophy of this ideal environment.
I'd feel most at home in a room where all I'm doing is discussing how the world works, theories, plans, and problem-solving. I imagine a sort of table where we are just sitting around coming up with new ideas and having interesting discussions, everyone is casual, no social formalities or any other bullshit, just pure informational conversation with jokes and sarcasm sprinkled here and there.
(Re-reading this, I realize how Alpha Quadrant this sounds, but I didn't change anything.)
