    I like everyone responses there very interesting and they are very entertaining to read. Thanks.

    4. Do you find it hard talking to people?

    Ok maybe I have issues talking to people too lol, but I was asking about sensors because whenever I try to connect with them it doesn't seem to work, but I do have some issues talking to some people too.

    6. Do you get very involved in communities and teams, or prefer to be a bit of a lone-wolf?
    Lone-wolf, I don't do communities and teams they stress me out and I kinda hate it, I love to work alone without pressure from other people.

    I'm going to edit the OP with the new questions

    1.Do you ever tell your brain to shut up, because it is always going on and on?
    I sometimes feel my brain is overactive and it prevents me from going to sleep. Sometimes, writing about what is on my mind helps calm my mind and I can sleep (usually stuff I write in text files and never publish). When I was younger I used to wish I could silence my brain activity, but I've grown to accept it and sometimes it even leads to creative inspiration, so i've accepted it as part of me.

    2. Do you think maybe there something bigger in-stored for you in your life?

    I'd like to beleive that I have the potential to be much more than I am - I can visualize a better version of me without much offort, but getting to that stage of being requires a lot of things that often seem out of reach and/or outside my power to influence.


    3. How nostalgic are you?
    Very

    4. Do you find it hard to talk to Sensors?
    It can be more challenging since they think differently from me, but if common interests exist, then it can be an interesting experience to talk to them and see how their minds work (people often like the same things for different reasons, and I find that to be an interesting way to get a better understanding of someone).

    5. If you can have any super power what would it be and why?
    Timetravel - There are a few important things I might have done differently in life and having an interest in history it would be really cool to be able to go back and see how accurate our perceptions of the past really are. The problem of paradoxes, unintended consequences and how it would actually work might make it a less desirable power tho. Weather Control would be a nice alternative power that has a lot of versatility ranging from practical (generate wind or sun for alternative energy, or even make a difference in global climate change), to comfort, to fun practical jokes.


    6. Do you admire ESXPs because there ability to enjoy the present to the fullest?

    No, but i do admire the amazing things they can do as a result of their attumenet with Se (reaction time, dexterity, coordination and things like that)


    7.What is your obsessions?
    Trying to understand things (people, systems, devices etc)


    8. Do find yourself sad for no reason? or because in actuality everything is sad? (Idk if that make senses.)
    I can see sadness (and joy) in many things that others do not, and sometimes strange things make me sad, but I cant say I feel sadness without being able to point to a reason for it (even if that reason may seem baffling). I think that feeling sadness (or joy) and not being able to explain it would be a sign of the subconscious percieving something the conscious mind does not.


    9. Are you ever truly happy?
    I don't know. The only benchmark we have for what true hapiness might be is outr own greatest feelings of joy, contentment, excitement and any thing else that causes such a feeling that we have experienced. Reaching such a pinnacle for me has been a rare but not unique experience for me, but it is not for me to say if it was true hapiness or not.

    10. For me I love when people remember the little things, or do the little things for me. Ex. Giving me rock and saying how that represents something special. How about you all? Also would you keep it or toss it eventually?
    What I appreciate is the creative touches or symbolic gestures someone adds to an experience. Not sure if thats the same thing you are referring to, but your example sounds like it. If I feel that someoen put their heart or creativity into somehthing and gives it to me, I will not discard it without a very good reason.

    11. Do you try to relive little moments, that where special or made you feel a certain something? It could be anything ex. eating cereal while sitting on your bed and watching a late night program, so you try relive this the next day because you were comfy and you enjoyed it so much. Also it never usually works for me.
    I don't often make a conscious effort to do so, but I do experinece trigger events that bring forth a pleasant old memory that gives a warm feeling. When I make a conscious effort to relive old pleasant memories sometimes it work, and sometimes it backfires and makes me feel sad for being something that now seems to hard to attain again.


    12. Can you find flaws in people or in objects easily?
    Yes

    13. How do you all handle stress?
    When possible, I like to resolve the source of stress as soon as possible. If it can not be resolved reasonably quickly I try to make a plan to deal with what is causing the stress. If it is beyond my ability to influence, then it gets internalized and often affects me both physically (blood pressure, headaches, nausia etc) and mentally (agitation, depression etc) until it is either resolved, or I reach a point of acceptance. Talking about it can aleviate the symptoms of it, but it usually is still present at a subconscious level even after that, just not as bad.

    Whoa; this took a while to write!

    1.Do you ever tell your brain to shut up, because it is always going on and on?

    Sure. But just telling it to shut up isn’t effective; I’ve got to get my mind on something else. I’ve always wanted to try meditation; always been unable to sit still for 5 minutes without falling asleep, getting bored, or getting a piece of paper so I can at least write down all the things I’m remembering I have to do. I’d love to find a nice quiet state of creativity.

    2. Do you think maybe there something bigger in-stored for you in your life?

    Stored; as in compartmentalized somewhere in the food pantries of life, in Tupperware marked with my name? Nah. Of course, I’d love to be a part of something bigger than myself. But I believe these big things in life aren’t stamped with my name, or maybe I’ll have to scrape together something bigger in life, or just wander into something and make it my own. ...Not sure. In short, I wish, but I doubt it, so I'll try to find/create something meaningful.

    3. How nostalgic are you?


    Not very. I don’t remember much from my childhood. However, some things like old video games, songs, and pictures I’ve drawn make me feel a bit nostalgic. There is one childhood smell that brings me back a little; it’s a sort of out-doorsy carroty, wet earth smell. It’s actually kind of gross, heh. I normally ignore the past; but if something I’ve forgotten hits me, it gives me a bit of pleasure, if not any actual longing for the past or vivid memories of the past.

    4. Do you find it hard to talk to Sensors?

    It’s hard to talk to everyone. It’s a bit harder, with sensors, to get past the small-talk stage and find something that really connects us two.

    5. If you can have any super power what would it be and why?

    Oh – I’ve thought of this extensively! After sadly rejecting flight, I’ve decided that the ability to control time would be much more useful and increase my quality of life greatly. I could sleep for 9 hours every night, be able to pause every conversation to think of something to say, and rewind all my awkward social missteps. All the time in the world! Lovely.

    6. Do you admire ESXPs because there ability to enjoy the present to the fullest?

    Oh definitely! ESTPs, you glorious bastards.

    7.What is your obsessions?

    Drawing, writing, walking underneath the moon on chilly nights. Psychology, self-improvement and personality systems. Social issues and attempting to champion against racism, sexism, and all forms of prejudice. Creating characters and diversifying their pasts, appearances, personalities, and stories. Trying to be more knowledgeable, creative, socially adjusted, competent, and all that.

    8. Do find yourself sad for no reason? or because in actuality everything is sad? (Idk if that make senses.)

    Makes perfect sense. Yes to both. I occasionally have mood swings that swing into hypomanic states, usually induced by being with friends, chocolate, self-discoveries, roller coasters, lack of worries, or something awesome on the internet, and depressive states, induced by insecurities, negative interactions, and usually the piling up of many small things. Er. In a slight rewording of the question, I often find myself happy, despite how things in actuality are pretty sad. But not everything. I can just ignore the sad things for a time.

    9. Are you ever truly happy?

    Heh. Once, someone I barely knew asked me that. And I said I wasn’t happy, but satisfied. After more reflection, I realized it was the other way around. I am often happy, but only because I manage to ignore my goals and ridiculously high standards for a while. I am not satisfied with life. I’m not sure how what being “truly happy” is. Is it being in a baseline state of happiness, that may change, but always reverts back? Is it being happy in general? Is it knowing everything is really alright? …I doubt I’m truly happy, but it depends on the definition of that.

    10. For me I love when people remember the little things, or do the little things for me. Ex. Giving me rock and saying how that represents something special. How about you all? Also would you keep it or toss it eventually?

    I don’t know if anyone has ever given me something that represents something. So I’m not sure – I would probably keep it but wouldn't necessarily be all that attached to it, honestly. I’m not very attached to items in general. I love it when people remember things about me, or reveal in some way that they know me.

    11. Do you try to relive little moments, that where special or made you feel a certain something? It could be anything ex. eating cereal while sitting on your bed and watching a late night program, so you try relive this the next day because you were comfy and you enjoyed it so much. Also it never usually works for me.

    No. Hmm. Maybe I should. I rarely think about my past. I barely remember what I did two days ago. I’m pretty bad at reliving things. Especially reliving good things.

    12. Can you find flaws in people or in objects easily?

    Oh, quite easily when I'm analyzing or critiquing cynically. Except when I’m in my “social” mood. This mood of general friendliness and often shallow interactions is different from my “over-enthusiastic” mood, which I use solely with very good friends. This social mood is a bit awkward, but very friendly and accepting, in which I adapt easily to the circumstances and am not that surprised by anything people say. I usually get pretty good impressions of people then. But when I’m not interacting with people, as an observer, I find flaws very easily. I’m the kind of person you want editing your essays for tiny flaws, or finding flaws in a debate, as long as I have time to think about it.

    13. How do you all handle stress?

    Not well. The bodily sensations are quite alarming sometimes with intense stress and anxiety. But with more normal, day-to-day stress, I’m good at getting work done, not so good at not resenting it. On a more practical note, I try to go for nice jogs and walks at night if I get stressed, or try to modulate my breathing, or just try to unwind with a hilarious conversation or stupid video. Or have impromptu dance parties when no one's looking.

    Random unnumbered question. Do you get very involved in communities and teams, or prefer to be a bit of a lone-wolf?.

    I join lots of things but work best on my own. Clubs, organizations, all that, I join them to try and be social and gain useful skills. But when it comes to projects, I always feel like I work best on my own, maybe ideally with a brainstorming session or two before I actually do the work.

    1.Do you ever tell your brain to shut up, because it is always going on and on?
    I frequently have racing thoughts and overactive imagination issues, and sometimes I struggle with anxiety and paranoia. As much as I would like to tell my brain to "shut up," I still haven't found the on/off switch so it really doesn't do much good. I just have to ride it out or try to distract myself.

    2. Do you think maybe there something bigger in-stored for you in your life?
    I would like to hope so - but on a small scale, if that makes any sense. I believe I have a purpose, but I'm not an ego-driven megalomaniac.

    3. How nostalgic are you?
    Not very. Thinking about the past - even the good parts of it - has a depressing effect on me. The past feels haunting; my memories are like bad dreams, and the people in them are like ghosts. The worst of it has holes in it, through which entire events have somehow slipped out of my recollection. I'm much more concerned with possibilities and improvement for the future.

    4. Do you find it hard to talk to Sensors?
    Depends on the conversation topic. If we're superficially ranting about people we both know in real life, they're usually fine. As soon as I start getting into the psychological motivations of person X or putting the issue into some broader societal context, they typically check out. With extreme sensors, I have to keep things purely on a concrete level, which actually bores the hell out of me. So yeah.

    5. If you can have any super power what would it be and why?
    The ability to speak, read, write, and understand every language that ever existed. I want to be able to communicate with anyone, without assistance. I just think that would be really cool, but so far my human head only fits English and broken Spanish, German, and Latin that I really need to do some brushing up on.

    6. Do you admire ESXPs because there ability to enjoy the present to the fullest?
    I haven't been very close with too many of these, but the ones I know seem to have a very quick wit for spur-of-the-moment humor. I do admire that. And it's just fun to be around someone who cracks you up all the time.

    7.What is your obsessions?
    Film, music, art, travel, psychology, justice, literature, language, culture, fashion, and politics.

    Updated

    8. Do find yourself sad for no reason? or because in actuality everything is sad? (Idk if that make senses.)
    There is usually something to blame for my sadness, circumstantially. But it affects me deeply, and then I find myself horribly upset over the state of the world in general.

    9. Are you ever truly happy?
    Once in a while. I think so.

    10. For me I love when people remember the little things, or do the little things for me. Ex. Giving me rock and saying how that represents something special. How about you all? Also would you keep it or toss it eventually?
    I do attach sentimental value to things, yes. I don't go overboard, though. I'm not going to hang onto old love letters from an ex just for the sake of nostalgia. I like to be thoughtful, and I like it when people are thoughtful in their interactions with me.

    11. Do you try to relive little moments, that where special or made you feel a certain something? It could be anything ex. eating cereal while sitting on your bed and watching a late night program, so you try relive this the next day because you were comfy and you enjoyed it so much. Also it never usually works for me.
    Sometimes I do things like that, but not because I'm trying to replicate a moment I already lived. I like watching certain movies or doing certain things because they make me happy now, not because they made me happy yesterday.

    12. Can you find flaws in people or in objects easily?
    YES. Yes, yes, yes. It's to the point of being a flaw in myself, honestly. I can't sit back and accept things very easily.

    13. How do you all handle stress?
    By going into a sort of combative, grit-your-teeth-and-do-it mode. I can be very confrontational in my proactive desire to get things resolved. There are many people who seem to live by the "well, I'll just sleep on it and see how I feel" mantra, but for the life of me, I've never been able to do this. I want answers and completion, and I can't rest easily until those things are achieved.

    1.Do you ever tell your brain to shut up, because it is always going on and on?
    Yes, and it fails because it only serves to get my brain going even more.


    2. Do you think maybe there something bigger in-stored for you in your life?
    In the career path I have chosen, I hope that the knowledge I instill in others will help people to realize their full potential. I also think that there's something even bigger in store, just I don't know exactly what it is in particular.


    3. How nostalgic are you?
    Pretty nostalgic about certain aspects of the past like music and movies and the like, and enjoy retro and vintage things, but I focus towards building a better future.


    4. Do you find it hard to talk to Sensors?
    No. I find at least something to talk about with them. I think it's good to get a different perspective of things, especially if my ideas tend not to be so practical. At least someone would keep me honest and grounded.


    5. If you can have any super power what would it be and why?
    Time travel. It would be wonderful to actually get to see what happened, and perhaps what will be. Could change what actions people make in the present moment and have a more positive influence on the course of the future.


    6. Do you admire ESXPs because there ability to enjoy the present to the fullest?
    I like the fact that they enjoy the present to the fullest. I wouldn't say it's an admiration though. More like I envy them for being able to live in the moment. To imagine how they could encode what's going on in the present moment to such detail and I wonder if their memories are a lot clearer as a result.


    7.What is your obsessions?
    Learning, synths and other types of musical keyboards, Genesis (the band), meteorology, science in general, frogs, ornithology, the 80s, library/book motifs, Victorian era stuff, Romantic era stuff, Romanticism, Rationalism, among things.


    8. Do find yourself sad for no reason? or because in actuality everything is sad? (Idk if that make senses.)
    Sometimes. PMS does that. But in all seriousness, my sadness usually has a root cause... if it isn't because I pick up on someone else's, it is because I am yearning for something. It tends to be a lot stronger than I anticipate. I tend to hold the sadness in and express my pain in private. I'm not a big fan of feeling sad though... the emotions tend to overwhelm me, tbh. I prefer to have my feelings in balance.

    9. Are you ever truly happy?
    Yes, there are moments where I feel truly happy, and it is wonderful. Happiness comes in several forms, and it's not just finding that one big thing... the small things add up over time.

    10. For me I love when people remember the little things, or do the little things for me. Ex. Giving me rock and saying how that represents something special. How about you all? Also would you keep it or toss it eventually?
    I'd keep the rock and put on top of a jar filled with other rocks as a momento. I am quite sentimental about these things.

    11. Do you try to relive little moments, that where special or made you feel a certain something? It could be anything ex. eating cereal while sitting on your bed and watching a late night program, so you try relive this the next day because you were comfy and you enjoyed it so much. Also it never usually works for me.
    I do this through music. It's my way of reliving my memories. I find music is a more symbolic means of reliving what I've experienced. Certain pieces evoke certain moods from certain times. It's a more abstract way of interpreting the world, but music in general is how I paint the canvas of time.

    12. Can you find flaws in people or in objects easily?
    Dare I say it, I am quite critical of things in general. I am quite persnickety, tbh. While I acknowledge flaws in people and objects, I think that it is the flaws that create either of two scenarios... the flaws can make a person more beautiful, or it offers an opportunity for personal growth. I am the most critical of myself than anything else. It can be berating at times.


    13. How do you all handle stress?
    If we're talking about handling it in a positive fashion, rather than my usual neurotic mental spinning out of control to the point of madness or ESTP shadow coming out, then I'd say that I tend to vent out my emotions... either creating art/music or writing. Most times I tend to just detach from the stress. I really dislike drama and chaos, so I tend to focus on creating a calmer atmosphere. I tend to withdraw a bit, read, play with my synths, listen to music, get involved with more scientific/philosophical thinking stuff, and then I return to the real world. Establish homeostasis, pretty much! I tend to soldier on with stressful situations... push my own weight past things. I get really determined to make it through even the hardest of times. I consider myself to be a fighter in stressful situations. I give my all, and do my best. If things don't work out, then I move onto the next thing. Even though I may get scatterbrained and a bit cranky, I prefer to step back and think with a clearer mind. Sometimes I get pessimistic... and assume the absolute worst. But I figure out a plan of action to help alleviate the stress.
