    It's scary if you don't have an automatic / electric apple peeler. The end result is mouthwatering however

    You know, I'm really interested to hear about other female INTJ romantic relationships. Mine are strange and (it seems) abnormal. And it's something that I worry about.
    Another thing I'd be interested to hear is the INTJ female perception of gender roles and the idea of gender equality.

    Fiona, INTJ, lurker mostly(!):

    *Career choices:
    I'm an emergency medicine specialist, then I trained in family medicine, now I'm back on the EM track as of December. I'm also a ceramic artist and (unusually for an INTJ) a fiction writer.

    *Friendships with the two genders (just plain gender ratios of who makes up your friend circles/how do you connect with other females/etc.):
    I don't have close friendships - I have huge trust issues. I love the idea of sharing my life with someone or having a close friend, but as soon as things start heading that way I panic and slam up the walls.

    *Paranoias:
    people finding out stuff about me and broadcasting it to the world (weird, because I actually haven't done anything that awful)

    *Feelings re: tattoos/piercings:
    Not interested.

    *religion:
    Agnostic

    *academic interest areas:
    Medicine, obviously; I hate all forms of woo. I love art and have to create regularly or I go bonkers.

    *types of guys you are romantically attracted to (or, i suppose, females, too):
    extravert artists, people who laugh and are optimistic, gentle and thoughtful.

    *sports:
    I like rugby. Especially when we beat the Aussies.

    *music (what you listen to/what instruments you play):
    Classical. I sing - folk, choral, opera, whatever appeals. I hate the transience of pop and all associated music. if it's not going to be around in 20 years, why bother?

    *social skills (because we can be all over the map, from the limited previous evidence volunteered by female INTJs on these boards):
    I have good superficial social abilities; I throw big dinner parties, get on well at work. It's the personal stuff where it all goes tits-up.

    *parental relationships:
    My father is dead, my mother only likes me when I do exactly what she wants and agree with her narcissistic worldview.

    *interest in kids:
    I like older kids but I can't stand babies. I'm about 5 years from the menopause, and remarkably unbothered about not having had kids.

    *how you act when you're in charge or leading something:
    I lead when I'm in a leadership role, ie at work the rest of the time, well, someone else summed it up: I don't lead until everyone I'm working with has proven themselves incompetent, but when I take charge I lay everything down clearly, logically, and organize things to get the job done as well as possible.

    *extra-curriculars:
    ceramic artist. Writer. Animal-lover.

    *favorite authors/books/etc.:
    I read voraciously, mostly fiction, especially literary fiction. I like a bit of meat to my reading. I own thousands of books.

    *favorite movies/directors/actors/tv shows etc.:
    I like House, but I don't actually have a TV (not since 1996)

    *Pet Peeves!!:
    hypocrisy. lying. deliberate obtuseness.

    *how good are you with money:
    I'm not very aquisitive, but my money goes on books, my garden and my other hobbies.

    *do you feel uncomfortable/out of character in a girly dress and a situation where you have to do the typical Girly Stuff?:
    A bit. I've learned not to get into those situations.

    *how do you dress:
    Plain, classic clothes. if I could afford designer then Armani would be my style.

    *vices:
    perfectionism. self-criticism. fear of intimacy (and I mean real, overwhelming panic, not the usual chick-magazine type)

    *known areas of inter-relational problems:
    Being touched, probably because my parents stopped having any physical contact with me when I was around 6 years old.

    *known areas of information acquiring problems (i.e. study methods/tips/areas of weakness/how you use your strengths to gather information):
    I learn stuff and then self sabotage, convincing myself I'm not going to succeed. Unfortunately, in the last few exams I've taken, it's had a detrimantal effect.

    *are you a visual/auditory/interactive/argumentative etc. learner?:
    I can learn any way. Just toss the information at me.

    *early riser vs. night hawk?:
    Night hawk.

    *what do you find endearing:
    someone who sees when I'm panicking in an emotional situation and takes charge.

    *who were you in high school:
    The outsider, probably because I always wondered how, if my parents hated me, I could expect anyone else to like me.

    *expressing emotion in front of others:
    I avoid it.

    *gift giving and receiving:
    I love working out what people like and buying them things. Price is immaterial as long as I know they'll like it. I've trained myself to receive gifts (and compliments) with grace.

    *touchy-feeliness:
    Terrifies me. I'm ashamed to have anyone touch me.

    *sex drive:
    low-normal.

    *messiness/organization of living environment:
    messy but not filthy.

    *time spent daydreaming:
    50%

    *most crazy plan you schemed and succeeded with:
    I don't do craziness.

    *fears:
    failing to achieve, making a mistake (especially a medical one)

    *hand tool adeptness:
    Very good. I do all my own DIY as there's never anyone to do it for me.

    *traveling:
    I have spent much of my working life in different countries.

    *phobias:
    Spiders, scorpions, crocodiles and sharks. And I hate it when it's misty at night.

    *life goals:
    Create and achieve. have a home and garden that I love and that feels safe.

    *things that make you stressed:
    not knowing what's expected of me. My mother.

    *things that make you awkward in situations:
    I can't do small talk.

    *death: how you deal/what you think about it:
    Not hugely bothered, except that I have animals that depend on me.

    *what do you see as the point of life?: I've never felt it has a point. It just is.

    Fiona -

    Ceramics would have to be one of the few arts that need INTJ-ness unless the artist likes totally totally unpredictable random results (which is what you get if you don't understand the clay/glaze/firing things)

    yes - there are a lot of male engineering types in ceramics whose main interest is glaze formulae!

    I like working on the wheel - I throw in porcelain and get great joy from the act of creating from wet clay.

    Ok, I think I can take some time to answer these questions. I like to hear what other female INTJ have to say about this, thanks for putting this together usehername! This information may be very useful! Unfortunately, I think the best use of this information is for information gathering and then manipulation ...I don't want to be giving away too much to the enemy...

    This post is way too long, you'll have to read my blog to get the long answer because I'll abbreviate what I really wrote, apparently I talk too much. If anyone have any questions about my answers or would like me to elaborate, then you will have to suffer through my blog and post there, because to get me to reveal to you the inner workings of this INTJ, you will have to work for it.

    But here goes:

    Career choices
    I'm still not sure what I really want to do. Probably be my own boss or be a project manager or something...

    Friendships with the two genders (just plain gender ratios of who makes up your friend circles/how do you connect with other females/etc.)Three guys and one girl - close friends.

    Paranoias
    I don't know if I have paranoias. I have major trust issues. I think the only person I really trust, and even that is limited, is pt, my fiancé.

    Feelings re: tattoos/piercings
    I only have one piercing in each ear and no tattoos. Other than that, I don't care what other people want to do with their body.

    religion
    Agnostic

    academic interest areas
    Math, Biology, Chemistry and Physics

    types of guys you are romantically attracted to (or, i suppose, females, too)
    First impression attractions : Looks, confidence and personality
    Generally, I have to get to know them, they have to challenge me and must be intelligent with motivation to do more in life.

    sports
    I've never been allowed to join or participate in any sports when I was in school, other than gym class. Although I do enjoy swimming.

    music (what you listen to/what instruments you play)
    I was never good at playing instruments.
    As for music I listen to, pretty much anything...depends on my mood.

    social skills (because we can be all over the map, from the limited previous evidence volunteered by female INTJs on these boards)
    Well, all the jobs I had had to deal with people and I'm very good at that but I'm definitely not one who initiates conversations or prefers to have conversations with people I don't know.

    parental relationships
    I get along just fine with my parents. I don't really know my dad...

    interest in kids
    No, not for me. I may adopt in the future.

    how you act when you're in charge or leading something
    I love being in charge and leading, I think I'm good at it.

    extra-curriculars
    I didn't have any at school, I wasn't allowed.

    favorite authors/books/etc.
    I don't know if I have favorite authors. I just love to read.

    favorite movies/directors/actors/tv shows etc.
    I'm not sure, I don't know how to answer that. Too many to choose from, I don't watch movies or the t.v. that much.

    Pet Peeves!!
    I don't know, where should I start? I don't like being around people that smoke, smoke around me or smells like smoke. I don't like heavy drinkers or people that smell like booze all the time.

    how good are you with money
    I'm very good with money.

    do you feel uncomfortable/out of character in a girly dress and a situation where you have to do the typical Girly Stuff?
    No, I don't mind being "feminine". I like to dress up occasionally but I'm not one who spends hours in front of the mirror getting ready.

    how do you dress
    Right now, I like to wear comfortable clothes when I'm going out and not working. Monday-Fridays, when I work, I wear business attire.

    vices
    Sweets - I love dessert, the sweeter the better. I love candy, white chocolate and most desserts after every meal, in-between meals and all the time.

    known areas of inter-relational problems
    I don't like to go out and do things with friends. It requires a lot of work/energy for me to call a friend, return a call/e-mail and hang out. I don't mind it once I go out, but I always dread doing it.

    known areas of information acquiring problems (i.e. study methods/tips/areas of weakness/how you use your strengths to gather information)
    I am inherently good at acquiring information and absorbing information for when I need it.

    are you a visual/auditory/interactive/argumentative etc. learner?
    I'm a visual learner.

    early riser vs. night hawk?
    Night hawk but with my work schedule, I am forced to be an early riser, although if I had it my way....

    what do you find endearing
    I love animals

    who were you in high school
    I was the shy, quiet smart girl who never stood out.

    expressing emotion in front of others
    It's hard to read me but When I get pushed too far, usually by my family, I get unreasonably and uncontrollably emotional.

    gift giving and receiving
    I believe there has to be a balance in any relationship with giving and taking and if it's not there, I usually end the relationship.

    touchy-feeliness
    Only with my significant other.

    sex drive
    I think it's normal

    messiness/organization of living environment
    At work, I like things very orderly and in a particular order. At home, I don't like messiness or dirtiness, but that is all according to my own views.

    time spent daydreaming
    If by daydreaming, you mean thinking of things...all the time.

    most crazy plan you schemed and succeeded with
    Can't say....

    fears
    Where should I start? I'm scared of heights, spiders, any bugs/creepy crawlies, germs, dirty things, ...


    hand tool adeptness
    I manage, I can do what needs to be done and figure it out but I rather have other people do the job.

    traveling
    I love it and I want to do lots of it. I can't afford to now but I plan to in the future. I want to see the world many many times....

    phobias
    I have many phobias as well: fear of open high places, pain, spiders, insects and I'm sure there's more...

    life goals
    To learn more, to gain as much experiences as possible and to find myself.

    things that make you stressed
    Not being in control of the situation, unable to control or take control of something/situation.

    things that make you awkward in situations
    Too much attention - I hate attention being drawn to me directly or indirectly. I hate public speaking and having to make a speech in front of an audience. I hate dancing in public, you will never catch me dancing unless it's practiced and rehearsed.

    death: how you deal/what you think about it
    I don't like funerals or cemeteries, I prefer to move on and accept this as a part of life. I will respect the dead and remember them for what they lived for but I don't believe in dwelling on it.

    what do you see as the point of life?
    I still wonder about that.

    How rare do you find your personality or you gender to be in your career field?
    I'm not really set on a career yet but I think in what I plan on doing (although I can't verbalize my plans), I think my personality type will dominate in that career field but probably not so much my gender. Already there are very few INTJ women in the world, I just don't think all of them think the same and that they want such large (probably unrealistic) goals in my career as I do....

    How much negative stereotyping have you had to deal with in your career?
    I find that there are a lot of stereotyping in general in life and in everything that people do. Right now, I wouldn't say I'm in a career I want to stay in so I don't think I can answer your question. People always stereotype and for me, as a fairly attractive, young and very opinionated woman, I believe that I am stereotyped a lot.

    Do you think negative stereotyping comes more from men in your field or women outside your field?
    I think both men and women stereotype and it's about the same for both. I don't care what people think of me, I live life the way I want and the way it makes me happy. I inherently can get along with people and crush those stereotypes, if I felt it was worth my time to but generally, yeah, stereotypes happen and I think it just varies depending on whether it's a guy or a girl - but it still happens none the less.

    I spent a lot of my life crushing on guys but never acting on it. In high school, I had probably a new crush every one to three weeks but most of the guys I crushed over never knew I existed. I got my first boyfriend in grade 12. He was a bad boy type and the complete opposite of me. I think I was attracted to him because he offered me an escape from my family and a way to rebel, relatively safely from my family (my family hated this guy). I ended breaking up with him when I found out he's been cheating on me for the past year. Hence why I hate cheaters!

    Then I gave up on guys for awhile but decided that being friends with them was okay, I then spent about three years hanging out and just being friends with many guys. I did go on the occasional date with a guy that I met and had a crush on but I wasn't looking for a serious relationship and nothing developed from them. Most of the guys I hung out with was cool to talk to and I learned a lot about men - because they were all different. I had the artsy type, the bad boy type, the testosterone based ones, the nerds, the cool guys, etc. Most of them treated me as one of the guys...but for some reason, I'm not friends with most of them anymore - not since I started seriously dating pt (my fiancé now).

    My next serious relationship was with my now fiancé. I'm very happy with him and I don't think our relationship would be as wonderful if it wasn't for the many experiences I had in the past and in his past. We are perfect for each other, we understand each other and most of all, we are open with each other. I trust him most of all, probably more than I will ever trust anyone else. I've never been happier, and I wasn't even looking for someone when I found him!

    Another thing I'd be interested to hear is the INTJ female perception of gender roles and the idea of gender equality.
    Gender roles. I believe in equality but I do have a certain way I think things should be. I don't believe in the guy having a certain role and the woman having a certain role, it's more on how equally shared the two roles are. If a woman is the main bread-winner (so to say), the man should do his share in chores to make up for not working or not being able to pay the bills or vice versa.
    Gender equality: I think people should do whatever they enjoy and whatever they want. I don't think there should be a stereotyped guy's job or women's job but I do acknowledge that generally there are some things that one sex may be better at doing or more physically capable of doing. I'm not saying though that even with physical or any other limitations that one should avoid or reject the other sex from doing it, I'm just saying that all of us do have limits. I don't think it's fair to stereotype but one shouldn't insist on doing something just to be different or to stand out from that gender role that society and culture put on us. People should be allowed to do what they want, if that is what they really want.
    Sorry for any typos, spelling or grammer errors but I'm a bit preoccupied planning my wedding.
    Or if you want to read more about me and help me gain more insight to your world (I do need more experiences in life), feel free to skim through my blog.

    *Career choices
    health care/psychology/unknown
    *Friendships with the two genders (just plain gender ratios of who makes up your friend circles/how do you connect with other females/etc.)
    I played sports in school so I had lots of female friends who also played sports, generally the popular girls, but socialized with males more often. My best friends from high school are all guys. My gap year program brought me many blessings of many meaningful relationships with both genders.
    *Paranoias
    People finding out how much I am afraid of failure (although I am comfortable enough vocalizing that in general, I don't think people know how important it is to me to not fail). People seeing me with emotions is fine, but not in the sense that I don't have control over them. I very much dislike that.
    *Feelings re: tattoos/piercings
    Against facial piercings because I find them distracting when I'm conversing with a person. Swing between wanting a (hidden) meaningful tattoo/wanting to be a purist and keep my body like how I was born/being scared of committing to a tattoo for the rest of my life and then hating it within a few years.
    *religion
    Christian.
    *academic interest areas
    chemistry & psychology are my favorites
    *types of guys you are romantically attracted to (or, i suppose, females, too)
    the Nerdy Jocks who are both very knowledge-hungry or committed to learning, and moderately to exceptionally athletic. You'd be surprised how many nerds there are that are athletic and how many jocks there are that are nerdy. It just takes some digging.
    *sports
    Volleyball/baseball/hiking/biking
    *music (what you listen to/what instruments you play)
    Classic Rock when I'm feeling like I want to listen to quality music, bluegrass country when I want to listen to music that just sounds good to me regardless of the "worthiness"/folk rock. I play a handful of instruments but am mediocre at them all.
    *social skills (because we can be all over the map, from the limited previous evidence volunteered by female INTJs on these boards)
    Pwned. But I have to turn them on and sometimes I forget and look snobby/give people the cold shoulder accidentally.
    *parental relationships
    Alright. Could be worse. My dad is pretty cool.
    *interest in kids
    Definitely want to have a handful of kids. When I'm older. I like very little children (younger than 5) and kids old enough to sit and have a real conversation with (12+) but have little patience for the in between stages. Small doses are fine and I'm sure with my kids I'll enjoy them as much as the next parent.
    *how you act when you're in charge or leading something
    Like an ENFJ. It's the most efficient & effective way.
    *extra-curriculars
    general sports/music/etc.
    *favorite authors/books/etc.
    Neal Stephenson. But I haven't read very much of him, I'll admit. Richard Feynman's books are amazing. I also very much liked Fifth Business and Slaughterhouse Five.
    *favorite movies/directors/actors/tv shows etc.
    Loved Alias.
    *Pet Peeves!!
    People who feel the need to talk just because there is another person in the room. People who don't respect my personal space. People who talk during class; it's very rude to both the instructor and your fellow classmates who are paying to get an education. I also very much dislike getting my clothes dirty which is slightly embarrassing b/c I have always considered myself "one of the boys". But it bothers me in the sense that I finally have figured out how to dress myself decently, and I hate shopping. So I want these to last a solid half-decade. Then I'll go shopping again.
    I also hate being cold. Even in Africa I wore a zip-up light fleece after supper every night. I am a terrible Canadian.
    *how good are you with money
    Good in saving, but bad with gadget-splurging or major investment purchasing. I always go for quality if I buy something important.
    *do you feel uncomfortable/out of character in a girly dress and a situation where you have to do the typical Girly Stuff?
    Yes. But I can fake it really well now. I feel like people are watching me b/c they know I don't know how to behave when I'm all done up. (They are, though, so it's a fair assessment.)
    *how do you dress
    Jeans/dark pants/khaki shorts and a solid colored , fitted shirt. The most dressy pair of sneakers (what do americans call it? We call them "runners") I can buy. If they are inappropriate to wear, I'm probably wearing dressy clothing anyway so then I wear nice shoes.
    *vices
    The internet. Sleep. My personal time.
    *known areas of inter-relational problems
    I can be bitchy when I'm even the slightest bit stressed/tired. I try to watch it but fail sometimes.
    *known areas of information acquiring problems (i.e. study methods/tips/areas of weakness/how you use your strengths to gather information)
    I have serious concentration/self-discipline issues. I could be doing so much better in school. I'm an above-average student, and while I'm no genius, I shoud be excelling. I leave things until the last minute and then stress when I have too much to do and too little time and need to triage and cut things out. This also stresses me out and makes me bitchy, which means it's something that I should seriously figure out how to overcome.
    *are you a visual/auditory/interactive/argumentative etc. learner?
    I'm terribly bad at paying attention to my surroundings. I have a visual imagination, but cannot seem to register the Visual Reality Details into my brain very well. I have not figured out yet where my strengths for learning are.
    *early riser vs. night hawk?
    I aspire to be an early riser; when it's been imposed upon me I loved it for my productivity and sleeping habits, I tend to fall into night hawk b/c I lack self-discipline.
    *what do you find endearing
    NF boys, shy three year olds, when people find me endearing, when INTJ or ISTJ females show their Fi all I can think of is we are bonding right nwo and you don't even know it!
    *who were you in high school
    The floater who fit in with everybody but didn't go to the social gatherings. I had a handful of best friends from every social group that I didn't spend very much time with but loved it when I did.
    *expressing emotion in front of others
    Positive emotions = reinforcing and deepening relationships = good and no problems; upset/personal emotions = very stressful. I don't deal with it well in front of others. I get embarrassed/stressed and feel these emotions are private and not for public viewing.
    *gift giving and receiving
    I am bad at receiving gifts unless it is from my rich relatives. I hate the obligation that comes with this and the potential for screwing up.
    *touchy-feeliness
    Avoid physical contact with most, feel desire to crawl all over other people in an effort to find their soul better for a few. I suppress this desire but it is there.
    *sex drive
    Probably normal for a 21 year old.
    *messiness/organization of living environment
    Clean as opposed to dirty; messy as opposed to organized. I also go into uber-organization mode every few weeks where my room is perfect.
    *time spent daydreaming
    95% of it. Seriously this is bad I don't know how to escape. See study problems above.
    *most crazy plan you schemed and succeeded with
    Am good with convincing any guy to do anything. I always have good intentions and would never get them to do anything really stupid/against their values; it's not to toy with them. But I love the success factor that comes with it.
    *fears
    i think what I listed for phobias is more appropriate here.
    *hand tool adeptness
    None. my dad is an ENFP and knows nothing about tools; my family is generally inept at this. Had no one to teach me.
    *traveling
    Have been to Africa, US, and a little bit of Europe.
    *phobias
    mild phobia to horses
    *life goals
    Become more like Christ every day; live my values. Walk the talk.
    *things that make you stressed
    When people take up my time and I left something too late. Finding something appropriate to wear for a formal occasion. People who are overly emotional - although there are some NFs who can do anything in front of me emotionally and it doesn't take me off. Only some NFs though.
    *things that make you awkward in situations
    Compliments I can't deflect with self-deprecation.
    *death: how you deal/what you think about it
    Poorly in practice, fine in theory.
    *what do you see as the point of life?
    Relationships. And new experiences/new people strengthen the ties between them.
    *You don't have a soul. You are a Soul. You have a body.
    *Faith is the art of holding on to things your reason once accepted, despite your changing moods.
    C.S. Lewis

    Okay, I'll jump in, for the sake of research. (And because I have some time to kill on a Sunday.)

    Career choices
    Past choices included teaching, management, and starting my own business (in that order). Currently searching for a new career, maybe as a writer.

    Friendships with the two genders (just plain gender ratios of who makes up your friend circles/how do you connect with other females/etc.)
    Have friends of both genders, but mostly female. (Around 75% F and 25% M.) Best communication with other female friends has been with INFJ, ENTP, and ISFP. While I don't relate to the terms "gay" and "straight", I am married to a female ESFP. We usually balance each other out - but sometimes drive each other nuts.

    Feelings re: tattoos/piercings
    Don't have any tattoos. Would like to, but haven't found anything I like well enough to put it on my body for all eternity.

    religion
    I have some contempt for those who think they have figured everything out and judge others accordingly. I just don't think we can ever know. I enjoy religion as more of an academic study than a set of rigid rules and beliefs to live by. I keep an open mind.

    academic interest areas
    Foreign languages, english/literature, geography, psychology... I really like everything. The least interesting class I ever took was statistics.

    types of guys you are romantically attracted to (or, i suppose, females, too)
    Confidence but not arrogance, people who have a talent/passion about something. And kudos for your open-minded wording of the question!

    sports
    Not very into sports, at least I don't like to watch them. If I'm actually playing the sport myself, tennis is probably my favorite. I'm not very athletic, though.

    music (what you listen to/what instruments you play)
    Listen to music of all kinds. Favorite band: Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers. Love Les Miserables. I play the piano and songwrite sometimes.

    social skills (because we can be all over the map, from the limited previous evidence volunteered by female INTJs on these boards)
    Much better developed after two years of teaching high school. It's the best thing I got out of it. Helped me develop E and F somewhat.

    parental relationships
    Get along very well with my ESTJ father. Emotionally overwhelmed by my INFP mother.

    interest in kids
    Completely out of my element with kids under 7 or so. Love older kids, especially inquisitive ones. Would like to have kids someday.

    how you act when you're in charge or leading something
    Analyze the hell out of it alone, then get input from others, then make a final decision.

    favorite authors/books/etc.
    Stephen King, especially the Dark Tower series. Reluctantly agreed to read the Harry Potter series and fell in love.

    favorite movies/directors/actors/tv shows etc.
    The Princess Bride, Lost, Star Trek: The Next Generation. Can't stand soap operas.

    Pet Peeves!!
    Small talk about the obvious (i.e., "Boy, it's cold outside, isn't it?" while shivering)

    how good are you with money
    Not. I make endless budgets and then don't stick to them.

    do you feel uncomfortable/out of character in a girly dress and a situation where you have to do the typical Girly Stuff?
    Don't mind dressing girly once in a while, especially for social events. Only concentrate on looking nice when I'm going out or people are coming over. At home - no makeup, jeans and tank top.

    vices
    Smoking. I love it and I hate that I love it.

    known areas of inter-relational problems
    Trying to rationally analyze a situation instead of concentrating on the other person's feelings. Low respect for incompetent people of all levels, but usually keep my disdain to myself in the workplace. Argue like an attorney in romatic relationships, but I'm getting better.

    are you a visual/auditory/interactive/argumentative etc. learner?
    Visual

    early riser vs. night hawk?
    Nighthawk.

    what do you find endearing
    Honesty and loyalty.

    who were you in high school
    Straight A student. Inquisitive. Helped others but would not let them copy. Think Hermione from Harry Potter.

    expressing emotion in front of others
    Very open with emotion with those I am close to. Wear my heart and opinions on my sleeve. Very closed with emotion around those I don't know.

    touchy-feeliness
    Usually ok if I'm the initiator (which is not very often.) I don't like touchy-feeliness from others when I am concentrating intently on something. I get irritable and grouchy.

    messiness/organization of living environment
    Engage in an endless cycle of cluttering things up for days, getting irritated that things are cluttered, deep cleaning and organizing everything in the house for an entire day, and starting to clutter things up again. Wish I could keep things neat all the time but I don't.

    time spent daydreaming
    All of the time! But more like analyzing future possibilities...

    fears
    Mostly that something will happen to a loved one and I won't be able to stop it/ protect them.

    traveling
    My favorite hobby of all time. Fascinated by all places. Studied abroad in Mexico.

    life goals
    To find a career that I love. I want to wake up every morning excited about my job. To accomplish important things and not waste precious time.

    things that make you stressed
    Money is the number one thing by far that stresses me out. Having things hanging over my head that need to get done. Feeling like I'm not living up to my potential.

    death: how you deal/what you think about it
    Only fear the death of loved ones.

    what do you see as the point of life?
    To improve yourself and others, to learn, to contribute to this world, to enjoy it and not let it pass you by.
