I'm honestly trying to make sense of psych and ethics and connection and virtue and the human condition with the following. I totally don't mean to be high-and-mighty with it.
Lots of people take a bunch of shit day to day, especially if they work with the general public. Ignoring or dismissing that just rubs me the wrong way, for lack of a better way to put it.

I dont think that I would ever be able to threaten anyone who wasnt myself.
I at the very least, really hope that this is the case.
But what if some day I become convinced that 'this particular person would be better off (add threat)'
I mean... Even there. Good intentions. But twisted intentions leading to BAD-as I can recognize NOW- consequences.
I really really hope... Because absolutely honestly... I was having some periods where things were REALLY confusing... And I was believing all sorts of things and being told and tellig myself and feeling all of these different things- these wanting to be concrete allusions/alternative realities screaming at me.
And oh god I hope I never do anything really really bad.
Its another reason why I need to take care of myself- take my pills- therapy- everything.
Because I just... I really really dont ever want to hurt anyone. The thought makes me feel a little bit sick.
I dont want to hurt myself either, but if I hurt someone else... Oh god no

I've been reading about social class obsessively all day and utterly despondent regarding how low I really am. Apparently social anxiety/shyness/strong introversion are low class afflictions:
The more normal, necessary, and acceptable the delay seems, the more proletarianized you know we've become. Normal and acceptable also is the disappearance of service and amenity everywhere, the virtual universality of "self-service" (as if it were a good thing) in stores and outlets of all kinds. Self-service is ipso facto prole. Proles like it because it minimizes the risk of social contact with peole who might patronize or humiliate them. All right for them, but because of prole drift we're all obliged to act as if we were hangdog no-accounts.

Screw it all. I can't pretend any more. I met with some coworkers outside of work for a bbq and the conversation turned deep like FAST with a few of my coworkers. Now, I also work with these guys in a design competition that I'm also involved in, so we've all gotten to know one another fairly well and it's interesting to see how they think and formulate design ideas. I have my suspicions one guy is an ENFP since he and I basically think and act the same way, and we speak the same language. Abstract and big picture, yet through Te so it doesn't sound like air. The other guy though, is confirmed INFP. I had my suspicions, especially when he started going into his anxieties and quandaries in life, and I told him, dude, I know EXACTLY what you're going through. Basically, he was following the advise of those around him and not following his heart, so where he's at, doesn't line up with his values and internal sense of harmony. I literally had the same "crisis" and conflicting thoughts a few years ago after finishing my undergrad. I then told him, my life completely shifted for the better when I finally said screw ya'll, I'm going to do what I want and follow my heart. I still take the advise of others when I need it, but I put their words on a much lower priority than my own heart's desires. Ever since then, I have been pretty damn content with my life and where things are headed. Sure nothing is perfect, but I'm still at my happiest than I've ever been thanks to that shift in thinking.
Long story short, I'm done "playing" with other types. I am for DAMN sure, I am at least, an NFP, if not ENFP. I'm going to take my own advise and say "screw ya'll" (not really, you guys are cool ) but after talking with my coworkers and finding way too many parallels between us in our thinking and desires in life, the search for the meaning and the bigger picture in it all, and I have to say, they have NO bias towards this type or that, that I know there can be no better fit for me. I know people are still going to question my typing, and I'm ok with that. I just ask that you open your mind into considering that one type is much more vast than a narrow perspective of what a type can appear as. People are far too complex to be put into 1 of 16 types and be done with it. There are without doubt still going to be wide varieties of people within 1 personality type, let alone 16.
I get it, people enjoy labels, sometimes need them, to feel secure in what they know of the world, but personally, I find beauty in knowing that I don't know everything and will never know everything. There is a world full of possibilities out there for us to all make a part of it uniquely our own. We don't need anyone else but ourselves to tell us how to make it. We just have to accept the mystery that is life and live every day to the fullest.
Didn't think this "random thought" would turn into a pep speech. Should've just put this in my blog. Oh well....

Why do people swing their arms back and forth when walking?“Reality is merely an illusion, albeit a very persistent one.” –Albert Einstein

Swinging arms in an opposing direction with respect to the lower-limb reduces the angular momentum of the body, balancing the rotational motion produced during walking. Although such pendulum-like motion of arms is not essential for walking, recent studies point that arm swing improves the stability and energy efficiency in human locomotion.
