If you had the opportunity to change your type, to which would you change it and why?
I'd take almost any other type (except maybe INFP, since they have many of the same pitfalls, and could be worse as a guy).
It seems like being an E would be better. Just change that, and I become an ENTP, and maybe I'd be the inventor/entrepreneur I always wanted to be instead of simply a dreamer.
It seems like being a J would be better also. Change that, and I'd be an INTJ, and would be fairly successful at whatever I did. Setting clearer goals, making plans to achieve them, and tracking progress.
Although, being an S may have given me a harder time at school, it would make me an ISTP, and that would give me many things, including: 1) being more directive (rather than informative), and there by more confidence and social skills, 2) being more practical (should speak for itself) which means getting along better in life 3) being more present and in-the-moment, yielding better health.
Do you feel misunderstood?
Yes. Usually. I am fairly good at clarifying my thoughts in writing. Vocally, it is a completely different matter.
Do first impressions go well for you?
No. Usually, I come of as inept, antisocial, weird, mute, or robotic.
What qualities should a best friend possess?
Patience, caring, tolerance of eccentricities.
Do you get along easily with others?
Ironically, yes. Those who know me well, have a hard time thinking anyone believing people could think ill of me (and have said so out-right).
What do you appreciate most about the opposite gender?
Other than the obvious heterosexual response? I don't believe that the "gender differences" matter much on an individual to individual basis.
What are the simple pleasures you enjoy in life?
I like to think and ponder about things. When the consequences don't matter, and I can simply toy with ideas, it is as close to blissful as I feel.
When you face troubles, what comforts you?
Well. I have a tendency to have reasonably good judgment even when things are falling apart around me and inside me. I've manage to do pretty well even when I'm suicidally depressed, and there's all sorts of political stuff going on at work and in my extended family.
I suppose you could say I take comfort in reason.
What do you hate & love most about this world?
I hate how much ego ruins what is good for all concerned. If we didn't have people who worked to protect their own reputations over what was best for them all concerned (even themselves), then things would be a lot better.
I love the human ability to band together and help each other. I think through this, all problems that matter can be solved.
What are you impassioned for?
I guess, I have a passion for technology. Specifically, when it is used to free people of their burdens. Though, it is often used to "enslave" rather than liberate them, and this upsets me greatly.
What do you think about most often? (Keep this PG eh)
I think about "problems," usually philosophical or mathematical in nature.
What emotion do you experience most often?
What is your primary love language (affirmation, quality time, gifts, acts of service, touch)?
I haven't thought about it much.
Time, I guess. I am not sure about "quality," but when I care about someone, I am usually just "there." I'll do acts of service, but often I find, people just like me being there, even if I don't say or do much.
Neither. Both. It depends on my evaluation of the particular situations. I can swing to both extremes.
Do you feel alone?
What is the meaning of life?
I have no freaking clue.
Are you afraid to die?
Yes. There is too much I want to do or try.
Is there anything after death?
I don't know. I hope so.
