    I don't think there's a thing in the world that truly makes me feel secure, at least not now. Financial security does help though.

    Being outdoors with no people around is quite nice as well.

    I'm sorry, I'm no good at explaining philosophy. I can come up with the occasional witty one liner but I'll never write a decent essay; and yes, you could write an essay on my statement. So instead I'm going to leave you a bunch of bullet points that one might normally group into paragraphs, sections and then finally slap on a thesis of sorts.

    - asking questions implies a belief in the truth and justice
    = justice implies some sort of safety
    = truth cannot is irrefutable in disagreements
    - asking questions increases perspective
    = perspective mitigates antagonist disagreements and encourages cooperation
    - asking questions goes against ignorance
    = ignorance is the root of all evil or the most violent element in society (to be debated)

    - if everyone is asking questions, then collectively everyone is working towards greater truth, better justice, broader perspective and reduced ignorance
    = as time -> infinity, truth will be found, justice will be served, complete understanding will be attained and ignorance will be purged
    = progress

    - now it remains to prove that just the thought that progress (and I mean progress in a positive direction) is sufficient to feel secure
    - I propose that while on the route to the ultimate goal, all steps taken are excusable and that only the end result is of any relevance
    - even if, in the name of progress, humanity were to initiate a nuclear war, one should take security from the knowledge that anyone surviving will have made a step closer to humanity's goal

    hope is security.

    My seatbelt.

    And that's not just a joke or anything. The feeling of security is pretty alien to me. It's not that I'm insecure either, not at all, but I always hover inbetween somehow. Might be the same for all INTP's. But sometimes when I drive and forget my seatbelt, I feel weirdly vulnerable and then notice I don't wear a seatbelt so put it on, and I stop feeling vulnerable. So my seatbelt makes me feel secure.

    My family: they love me unconditionally and they will be there for me in times of trouble

    Money to some extent. I feel secure if I know I have enough to provide for basic needs and I have enough saved for emergencies and retirement.

    Self-confidence- that way if something happens to threaten my security, I know I'll be able to cope.

    I think so. But it's security at the expense of another's security or else it's just a personal struggle.

    A clear pathway in life. I need a future goal to work towards. Without it, it's such an uncomfortable, aimless feeling.
