    Question What's Your Greatest Fear?

    What's your greatest fear and why?

    Mine is probably being lonely. They say introverts can endure prolonged isolation, but it drives me insane. Eventually I start creating alter-egos in my head who I converse with for my own amusement.

    Wow, I sound batshit crazy.

    I do not know what I or others fear, because it is only through not knowing that fear exists. Since the unknown should not be feared, fear itself is the only thing to fear.

    For the longest time, I felt afraid of others' fear and what they might do because of it. Then I realized others would always be afraid, and that I had been infected by this contagious feeling. There are still times I feel afraid, but I never let it take control of me because it would spread to myself and others. Afterwards, I confront the fear to master it... I am confident that one day I will be entirely fearless!

    Maybe being very sick or terminally ill and bankrupt at the same time? Guess it is about losing independence.

    No, you sound sane and healthy.


    My greatest fear is value. (I forgot the part of why - felt it's kinda self-explanatory. If you don't understand why... I wouldn't be able to explain either)

    I'll do a quick try on Why:
    If you value something; then you would/n't like to X with X and you might loose/gain X, and if you do, you have reaction Z which usually is of value Y. So on, so forth.
    If you don't value; there is no reaction and thus no fear.

    I'm not saying it's bad, wrong, incorrect to value concepts. From a society's point of view, it tends to be positive to value concepts.

    The typical 'death'.

    It means I will never be able to satisfy my curiousity. I'm curious about what the next day brings, what happens to characters in stories I read and is still ongoing, what will happen to the world in a million year's time (lol), etc. Just that feeling of emptiness and knowing that one day you'll just stop existing, unable to know what the future has in store for you.
    Kinda like how you are engrossed in watching a show, where you might be able to predict what's going to happen next but yet you do not want stop watching it or being interupted. And how much I hate the line 'to be continued...' (Well, only that when you die, there's no 'to be continued...', you expired before being able to see the non-existent ending) It forcefully rips you away from an ongoing stream of events, not far from what life has to offer you. When I die, life goes on, I'll most probably miss out on stuff I know I'm going to enjoy.
    Not being able to experience anything, even bad or horrible ones, might be worse than being able to.
    There are many things I'm afraid of, but I think death is something so scary that I still do not really want to explore the full implications of what that means. But then again, I would already be dead and no longer exist to feel scared about it, so, o_O. Why should I bother?

    And then I contradict myself by by having suicidal thoughts at times.

    (Am I making any sense at all?)

    ENTJs.

    Because ENTJs are superhuman and God.
    One ENTJ is enough to crush an entire city to pieces.

    Drowning. and becoming enveloped by the unforgiving water. When I was three, I refused to be baptized because of it. The summer after my first year at college, I went on my first whitewater rafting trip. On the last big rapid, I was bumped out by the water. I tried to hold on to a few rocks, but I lost my grip and was taken downriver by the water. Lying faced-down in the river, I was sucked under multiple rocks while flailing in the water. The whole time I kept thinking, "This is a shitty way to die, man." (Now I wear a lifejacket, even in the shower. jk) Irrational fears suck.
    Oh.
    And to any individual who claims to be fearless: don't.
    Instead, claim to be all that you can: see where it gets you.
