    It's actually quite hard to make a short description of yourself.
    I'm getting tired even thinking about it....

    I'm the kid who everyone thought would be a millionaire by the age of 25 in high school because I was regarded as being very intelligent... I sure showed them *cackles wickedly*

    I'm restless, easily bored but also easily interested in new things, or shedding a new light on old things. I live for having intellectual toys to spend a few hours with before my attention span is exceeded.

    I often darkly suspect that there might actually BE a god, and s/he evilly enjoys toying with me to see how I react in different circumstances, because the world around me always turns out to be way more interesting than it should be... either amazingly good luck (an offered book deal!) or remarkably bad luck (spending 36 hours in jail for a crime that wasn't my fault, reading the world's worst book about incestuous witches )

    I hate authority figures, but have been involved with a former boss for quite a few months now, almost everyone who meets me likes me and I have few close friends, I get bored with a job in a few months and reread the same book several times. I'm apparently decent to look at, though lack fashion sense, I only cry about stupid things (losing my ID and fearing that I'll miss out on FUN!) instead of important things (i.e. someone close to me dying) and am always more productive if caffeine and cigarettes are available.

    I occasionally suspect that I'm a disappointing underacheiver, but try not to let it bother me. My dream job is to steal Anthony Bourdain's job. I like beer and crossword puzzles.

So I rarely, if ever, actually clash with people. I live a fight-free life. And although I am very stubborn. I don't go through with things if I'm proven to be wrong either. I see my stubbornness and egotistical behaviour in the most positive light there is. Even though the traits are commonly portrayed negative. Better then what I am I can not be, because I try to be the best at everything I find important, I don't claim to be better then anyone per se, but I do claim to be as perfect as can be. I value independancy above dependancy, so I'm not a warm-hearted person. Yet I'm commonly liked and thoroughly enjoyed. As my persistant qualities and my accepting nature is very accessible to other people. And my stubborness and selfishness is easily accepted and respected, as I do not abuse those qualities at the wrong times. And will take my time to make my points as clear as day if asked too.

    I'm a typical asshole that everyone likes.

    I was getting this vibe from you and from other INTP's. I definitely would view that in a negative light but for you that could be perceived as positive and what i see as positive you might see as negative. Kind of curious what was your childhood like and how was school was for you growing up as far as friends and having anyone close to you? Don't have to answer that if you don't want to.

    I have persisted because speaking from my inner life is the most satisfying for me.

    Of course I get annoyed with some for not understanding me, so I try to understand them. This has worked out OK as I have fairly satisfying relationships with those around me. But I want to develop my inner life more.

    To some extent I have been able to do this and bring my inner life out into the everyday. Sometimes this leads to humour and sometimes to emotional closeness. But I feel there is more.

    It's like every moment is a doorway. And I only have to open the door to discover a new world. But first I must slow down so that I am in the moment.

    I remember I paddled out to Springbank Island in Lake Burley Griffin. I sat down with my back against a tree and didn't move for a whole day.

    - To see Springbank Island just click on -

    I watched one whole day unfold from beginning to end on Springbank Island. And I discovered the day unfolds very, very slowly - so slowly, it is almost imperceptible.

    And to see the day unfold you must slow down to the speed of the day. You might say you empathise with the day, or that you dance to the beat of the day which is - oh so slow - that your heartbeat slows down in your chest to follow the Sun across the sky.

    And there were moments when I became the day and the day became me.

    All on Springbank Island right in the centre of the Capital of a Continent.
    Interesting story Why do you love your inner life so much? How would you describe your inner life?

    I have a very strong affinity to connect the things a person says to a wider web of possible outcomes. In that regards, I like the phrase "a big picture person". That way I built a web of experienced things I saw in this world and developed a somewhat good knowledge of the human nature. I would be a natural salesmen, if it werent for my "big picture" sometimes being out of touch with reality. I can loose myself in the future and assume a PoV that makes me think from a position, I havent reached yet.

    I have developed a pretty tough shell towards the outside world and I can masquerade as a lot of people. Some of the people I know would never like each other, if they were to meet, but I nevertheless like to bring them together and point out what things in common they have. I am no bugger tho, I am worse, I do those things subtile. More like a rogue. Under the shell I am a very sensitive person and I value good mannerisms and a dash of grace above all else. I generally value wisdom and life experience within people the most. I am naturally attracted to the business world, cause people tend to be nice to each other there, cause they want to earn money. I like how they communicate there, tho I know its quite shallow. I have no problems with rough conversation tho that would only bug me if it would come from my girl.

    I am in a relationship with a girl I'ld type INFJ for 4 years and we plan to move together in the beginning of next year. She is from France and I knew it would come that way for me, cause I always had a knack for the lifestyle of french people. They manage to create a colorful life out of the most basic allday life situation and they got a lot of rituals for things, what I like cause rituals were invented to make some things easier for following generations to experience and to help them get to know, their ancestors had got the same problems. They are a form of lived wisdom. I love my girl very much, she is even more strange to our immediate surroundings than I am and I never met someone like her before. She is a very tough and strong person but is extremly jumpy and touchy at the same time. It needed some time until we got in sync, two sensitive persons that is a problem, but we adapted to each others in a way I have never experienced before. Now we are pretty strong glued together and are devastating when met in a team . She gives me a form of respect I think of should be second nature to everyone and she treats our realtionship as one of equality, never loosing the view that we are both humans and need to be treated as such.

    Besides that I am a very industrious person. I am majoring in mechanical engineering and drive a 15 year old car, I have to work a lot on to keep it running. I work a lot on the house too and I help out my Dad in his plumping company. Tho I can be pretty forgetful and actually embody the stereotype of a disturbed Professor, God gave me an awesome sense for practicality when it comes to building things. Driving things or operating machinery is not so my feat. I am one of the worst Drivers in my hometown, even a danger to some . + I got issues to figure out the most easy things sometimes and think about them too complicated to derive the proper solution how to handle them. That makes up for a lot of funny situations if I try to operate gear .

    I am a very slow person, I like to do a lot of planning before I approach things. My Dad is the exact opposite, he just storms with the head thru the wall, while I start to lay out all the screws first, count the parts, sort the gear and then go thru all the steps to build a thing several times in my head. That results in a lot of inpracticality too, cause sometimes I go one way to get things, five times, cause I forgot to get things or had another order in my head on how to approach things, leaving out the next steps in the process of thought.

    My Dad is a rolemodel ISTP, he is a Master of Craft in sanitary- and heating-technology and a Master of Craft in Gas- and Water-installation. Runs his own company for 30 years and is his only employee. He is a great man that managed besides running his company to be there for his family more than enough time. I like to call him Mean Machine, cause he is just a killermachine like that . He is pretty rude and strong in his language but I never had an serious arguement with him in all my life. Cause he loves me as a Dad loves his son and therefore he even listened to all the crap stories I made up when being a kid. He definitly thinks of me that I am living more on cloud 9 than the real world but he never let me feel that and for that you got to love him. He owes six cars cause he is a car fan and that hobby binds us together . He never dared to work on cares tho, cause he think its not his field of expertise, I could motivate him in that field .

    My mum is ISFJ and she is a wonderful caring person. They are married for 26 years and I come from a rolemodel family, there were never bad words here when I grew up. When I was young I had got a better relation to my Mom, relation with Dad developed when I got older and more experienced in life. But that's ok that way I got the best out of two worlds.

    So whats left to say. I work parttime in an Engineering company and do earn the good money. My girl is doing her degree in Medicine and we both want to build a house. We already picked a rural area we like to live in and are working towards accomplishing that goal. My goal in life isnt to earn money, I'ld like to have my own business one day, cause I love the feeling of freedom. Tho I can imagine being a CEO will take a lot away from your personal freedom, I still want to have a nice idea, get it patented and run my own business. For that I need to hold to the dedication to go thru with my plans and not to live them in the mind only. I am working on that and constantly remind me of that and I already took the first steps into that direction.

    My girl and me, we made a lot of bad experience in life already. Including drugs, bad relationships and the lesser shiny part of life. We are both persons who like personal growth and constantly work on that for ourselves. We both dont like people who are stuck on Level 5, while others advanced to Level 8 already, but they are part of the world and one has to accept them. My girl is pretty good with holding a mirror up so people can see themselves in it, I am a very introverted Thinker and most of the times dont care that much about people at all cause they just give me headaches. We are both not in need of much social interaction or human company and built our own little world of refugee already.

    I hope tho that one day, we gonna meet some people, we can talk to more freely, cause we can respect them.
    I think we would make great friends. Is your gf like Amlie? lol I actually like the french lifestyle too so I'm learning french well so i can speak it when i'm in Paris or wherever. Sounds like a interesting father to have he definitely manages his family as well as his business. What do you mean by people on levels? Ive never heard that before.

I doubt my own not-goodness and I figured out that most people probably just hate my attitude. People say I'm lazy, but I don't really care, because I guess they're just weird. According to some people I have a monster in my head, but I don't have a monster in my head. They also say I'm schizophrenic, but I don't hear voices and even all the psychologists and psychiatrists that I had to visit said that I am completely normal. How boring!

    I'm in high school and next year I'm going to study psychology. Yay. I'm absolutely not looking forward to it, because I know I'm terrible at finishing things. I'm also very stubborn. If I want something, I get it almost every time. Except the thing I really really REALLY want. I only get those things when I start wanting them less. AAARGH!!!

    I am also a very romantic person. I've only been in love once in my life and that took 5 years. Last time I saw that person (male NFP) was two and a half months ago. I'll never see that kid again, but that doesn't matter, because I'd screw up his life anyway. It's sad, but he learned me a lot of things, made me wiser, made me love myself again, learned me to become more optimistic.

    Most people who know me would describe me as a silent person. Others would describe me as an ADHDpatient. That is because 99% of my time has to be spent with boring people. And boring people make me silent. But when I get to that 1% of my not-so-boring time, all of my energy comes out. I live for those moments. Without those moments, I'd probably already live in a box under a bridge, moping about my useless existance.

    I write. O yes, I do. Most things I write, are absurdistic, but they're almost always autobiographic. Right now, I'm writing a parody on "Final Destination", because I think that anyone could write something like that. I'm also writing a story that's based on the way I see my future; in the story, I'm 34 years old. I'm married to a 62 year old millionair who used to be my loyer. Together we have 3 kids, to daughters (twins, 14) and a son (11). I'm working at the city hall, as a coffee lady. I have an affaire with another millionair (who pays for my plastic surgery), a huge bastard who left his wife because she had bad genes (she gave him a daughter with Down syndrome). When I tell my husband about my affaire, he drowns himself. I really don't care and I go searching for the first boy who I ever loved (the last time I saw him, he was sent to a camp where they tried to make gay men straight). I search and search and in the end I go mad and get killed by my butler, who, in the end, turns out to be the guy I was actually searching for. Drama drama drama.

    I'm from a quite disfunctional family. My mother (ISF) is a drama queen, who wanted to leave my father (NFJ) five years ago. My father made me blackmail her, so they could stay together. That had a bad impact on my self esteem. I felt very guilty for a long time. My father hates people and kept me inside tge house for years, but strangely I'm not THAT socially handicapped. My mother is a softy, and because of her I don't like healthy food. My father teaches at my school, and since last week he's also teaching me. My mother has the mind of a teenager, and sometimes she makes me think that I'm more of an adult than she.

    Last week I read something a teacher of my old school wrote to my new school. It was a little note with information about me and it made me very happy. It said:
    Knows a lot! That is something she really wants to show others.
    Strange girl: does whatever she wants to do.
    Almost a genius.

    Gah sounds like you should cut the people who say your no good from your life. What a bunch of @#%@#. Sounds like they're dealing with mental illnesses themselves. I definitely feel for you... lol I hate procrastination too. I have to put myself on a unbendable schedule that's scheduled down to the minute to break my procrastination habits. Romantic eh sounds like a worthwhile relationship. How would you screw up his life? So did you have ADHD growing up? Err its the same for me and boring people. I'm working with one right now and i praise my brother who works with me for keeping the constant humor going. I sometimes feel though he analyzes our humor and energy as slight immaturity even though it makes him smile. Cant stand people like that they really are energy drainers. Wow is your future a parody too?! lol I should have organized this reply a little better its really jumping all over the place.

I get annoyed easily by things that go on around me, because i feel like some people just do stuff to do things with no ryme or reason, but then act like it has to be done that way. I hate being in crowds of people unless I'm drunk, and I hate being totally by myself as well. I'm to adapting for my own good at times, I might or might not be creative. and apparently I don't always make sense, but i argue that I make enough sense. I think that about covers it. as you can see a very generic 22yr old female human.
    What do you mean to do things with no rhyme or rhythm? Doesnt sound wierd a lot of people go through those things. Does it bother you that you hate being around crowds?

    Childhood (Let's say 6-12) was pretty cool. I was extremely energetic, athletic, good at sports, very competative, way beyond most other people of my age intellectually and felt really proud of myself.

    Then puberty kicked in around 12, went to high school, priorities changed. I enjoyed playing and fooling around with friends more than classes. I barely passed each year, always minimizing what I need to do and learn in order to pass and have as much free time to do other stuff. Never made homework at home, always did that stuff in classes, not paying attention very well to teachers in general. I was still quite liked and even famous in school. I never cared how people felt about me and I got in some awkward situations, inadvertedly spreading rumours about me, especially when I was 16/17 years old. Everyone knew me, but I hardly knew anyone else apart from people in my own classes. I never saw my reputation as negative.

    At graduation day I got a standing ovation, because my friends went through the roof when my name was called and everyone just caught on, lol. *happytear*

    So basicly, I was ENTP'ish in high school. Although I think I've always had an introverted nature. I was just very energetic.

    So I had the best of times in school.

    Then had some pretty sad things happen in my life which made me quite a bit more introverted. Or at least got me much more interested in a whole lot of other things. Whereas I basicly didn't care much about most stuff in high school.

    Well, I always make sure that I come across as a very tired and confused person so people won't think it's my fault when I'm procrastinating again. Really, I'm getting good at it. I'm like the goddess of procrastination.

    His friends don't like me. Don't ask me why. They're nice people, believe me, but I'm afraid that if I stayed around that kid any longer, his friends would leave him. I wouldn't do that to him. He's bad at making friends anyway and I know how bad it feels when you don't have anyone to socialize with. It's aweful!

    I don't know if I have ADHD or ADD. I've been to a psychiatrist to see what I have, he refused to. I diagnosed myself with ADD, but since it's unofficial, I can't do anything with that diagnosis. (And I know that kind of people, they're all around me!

    i meant rhyme or reason. no i just avoid crowds. you missed the point, i didn't say i thought i was weird i said other people did


    Oh and I didn't expect anyone to actually read my response, I sort of figured most of these threads were more for ego masturbation then anything else honestly.

    I want to know more, go deeper, I want ... more.

    I'm interested in people- I can't think of anything better than having a discussion with someone and learning more about them and life.

    I question my sanity on a daily basis. Most people get be shown part(s) of my personality I know are kind of appropriate.

    It sounds crazy when I'm trying to explain something, so I don't do that a lot.
    Then I get all paranoid - "Am I just making it this way"
    "But what else is it then? What else is it except the way it is?"
    "Well maybe there's something in your head you need to fix to make it more clear"
    "Mmmh mkay, how?"
    "Just do it"
    "Okay"
    *doing it :whistle:*
    "But it's still is what it is..." or something new comes up or old, in a new, alternative way
    "ooooooh my gooooood !"
    And then I just ... Ugh.

    For those of you with short attention spans (Haight *cough* Haight), I have decided to take it upon myself to summarize everyone's "who I am" posts.
