    Default Tell me about yourselves

    Hi guys, I have a poor understanding of SPs and SJ’s so I thought I’d ask you directly.

    Questions:
    1. If someone was going to say nice things about you, what adjectives would you consider to be the most complementing? (Examples: adventurous, brave, resourceful)
      -
    2. If you were sitting in your house, and then all of a sudden, you had a premonition that a massive flood was going to flood through the area in the next 30 minutes, what would you do? How would you prepare, would you get inside your car and drive out of the city, or stay in your home and protect it from your vandalizing neighbors?
      -
    3. Think back to your teenage years and remember how much of a pain you viewed your parents/teachers/low paying jobs were. What were your ultimate fantasies about? Did you want to run away from home/ prove your teachers wrong and stupid/ become manager and rub the old manager’s nose in it?
      -
    4. If you had infinite resources, money, and power-furthermore, you did not have to work, you had no responsibilities, and you would never be taken out of power- what would you do for fun? Think long term and large scale.
      -
    5. Finally, What is your favorite color and what adjectives or properties would you say it embodies (example: Purple = subdued, quiet depth, ; yellow = charming, bright)

    Please feel free to mock my questions, I know how stupid they sound.

    [LIST=1][*]If someone was going to say nice things about you, what adjectives would you consider to be the most complementing? (Examples: adventurous, brave, resourceful)
    Any compliment is a nice one, but I'd probably blush more at the shallower ones. On the flipside, criticism that points more to behavior can get to me (like "Your not reliable/Your music isn't that great/You need more "confidence"), while shallow/physical criticism doesn't as much. Go figure.

    -[*]If you were sitting in your house, and then all of a sudden, you had a premonition that a massive flood was going to flood through the area in the next 30 minutes, what would you do?

    I'd get out and drive. I'd pack as many things as possible first though. If I had to be in a bigger rush, I'd at least carry a sock stuffed with change (that way I can smash a window if my car gets submerged... OR... just have a lot of spare change around).

    I got depressed and wondered "Is that all there is?" I still wonder it.

    Travel, hopefully meet people, see the ancient landmarks with my own eyes
    - I'd love to just camp out for a night in the Colloseum, at Angkor Wat, or some Mayan temple if I could.

    [*]Finally, What is your favorite color and what adjectives or properties would you say it embodies (example: Purple = subdued, quiet depth, ; yellow = charming, bright)
    Purple resonates with me..but people keep telling me I should be wearing bright colors.

    When you say ‘shallow,’ do you mean complements referring to
    • physical appearance,
    • where you come from,
    • who you’re related to?


    Example: “I just love your flowing red hair”/ “You’re from Parris!”/ “Your Great Great Great Great Great Great Aunt was Mary Queen of Scots?!”

    That’s pretty much what I would do, although first I’d send all of my important computer files to e-mail. I’d be fairly certain that the flood would destroy my computer, and by extension, everything I had saved on my desktop. I’d probably end up getting caught by the flood.

    Been working hard today
    time to play
    yes I'll answer . . .

    "1. If someone was going to say nice things about you, what adjectives would you consider to be the most complementing? (Examples: adventurous, brave, resourceful)"

    Fun! Welcoming, open. Adventurous, courageous. Innovative, playful.
    -
    "2. If you were sitting in your house, and then all of a sudden, you had a premonition that a massive flood was going to flood through the area in the next 30 minutes, what would you do? How would you prepare, would you get inside your car and drive out of the city, or stay in your home and protect it from your vandalizing neighbors?"

    I'd take that premonition with a grain of salt. Although there's a possibility the premonition is right, and strange things do happen, there's also a possibility it's wrong and caused by having eaten too much pizza.

    I might go for a drive with my handbag, change of clothes, pictures, passport, and pet, yeah, just in case it was right.

    If I actually KNEW a flood was coming, I'd be offering all the neighbors that could fit in my car a ride. Some of them are elderly, one just had two surgeries, one is depressed. I'd be calling my two relatives who live close by. I'd grab food and clothes and important papers and pet supplies and toiletries and a flashlight and . . . And I'd get out of the area, because I know how important I am to my boyfriend. It's really all about the people.

    Huh? :-)

    I liked my mom. Teachers were just these adults I didn't understand, some nice, some not. I was shy then, and liked to read a WHOLE lot, and walk in the woods, have a ton of pets, crossbreed the marigolds, play piano and about five other instruments, do yoga, bake, knit, draw. Attempt to make ink out of wild grapes.

    What kind of childhood did YOU have to be asking that? :-)

    "4. If you had infinite resources, money, and power-furthermore, you did not have to work, you had no responsibilities, and you would never be taken out of power- what would you do for fun? Think long term and large scale."

    Exactly what I'm doing. That is, making space for others to grow, while taking care of myself well enough to keep doing so, and enjoying the little things of the day. With more resources, I would do the same things on a larger scale.
    -
    "5. Finally, What is your favorite color and what adjectives or properties would you say it embodies (example: Purple = subdued, quiet depth, ; yellow = charming, bright)"

    Green = life, new beginnings . . . cool shaded deciduous-and-pine forests with mosses and clear dripping rivulets, sunlight making geometric spreading rays down toward the biological cellular curvatures of ferns . . .

    Okay try again.

    Green = life, new beginnings, this moment.

    I went though public school down in Santa Ana (Southern California.) I had a string of bad teachers, ones who would purposely mock the students until they cried. High school was a little bit better, but I still remember Mrs. Wineman, my 3’rd grade teacher. She was… not a nice person.

    After high school, I went straight to college, but not before doing volunteer work at a soup kitchen. My fellow employees were nice enough, but this one unshaven guy was wide-eyed the whole time and barely spoke. I think he was on drugs.

    I parents were nice enough. I just included that part of the question because many teenagers find themselves being unreasonably upset with their moms and dads. I thought I would end up reaching a wider audience if I added that to my list.

    Yes to all of those things.. umm, except the red hair. Haven't dyed it that color yet.

    Those things are equally cool, but I'm a little iffy about investing in space exploration. I want to be the one who travels space NOW. Not invest for someone else to get the experience later. Selfish as that is. Since I can't be there now, I'll just go for enriching experiences here. OTOH if the technology was already in place, if we lived 300 yrs in the future, I'd throw all my money at it.

    always a good approach... also check out the video thread! you can see a few of us in our full sensor glory!


    1. If someone was going to say nice things about you, what adjectives would you consider to be the most complementing? (Examples: adventurous, brave, resourceful)
    1. an esfp friend really hit the trifecta of complementary terms a while back when he described me as smart, funny and a lot of fun! complementing my cooking is also always a very good move...

    2. If you were sitting in your house, and then all of a sudden, you had a premonition that a massive flood was going to flood through the area in the next 30 minutes, what would you do? How would you prepare, would you get inside your car and drive out of the city, or stay in your home and protect it from your vandalizing neighbors?
    I would probably go outside and look at the sky to see if there's any reason to suspect a flood, then I'd check online or call the national weather service to see if I'm crazy or not... if it turns out that a flood really WAS coming I'd start moving all of the stuff that needs protected up to the attic and then see if I had time to drive away (I don't want for my car to get flooded! )

  8. Think back to your teenage years and remember how much of a pain you viewed your parents/teachers/low paying jobs were. What were your ultimate fantasies about? Did you want to run away from home/ prove your teachers wrong and stupid/ become manager and rub the old manager’s nose in it?
I wanted to run away and become a socialist revolutionary in a tropical country with delicious native fruits and tasty animals and fish... I could live in a cave with my fellow revolutionaries, eat food that we found and take down the man! (that's seriously what I daydreamed about as a teenager )

  • If you had infinite resources, money, and power-furthermore, you did not have to work, you had no responsibilities, and you would never be taken out of power- what would you do for fun? Think long term and large scale.
  • I would set out to explore all of the places in the world that I've always wanted to visit (which means about all of the world except for Gary, Indiana... )- I'd meet people, eat food, visit different sites and try living both like the common people and like traditional royalty as well! Then I'd open a cultural museum in my state capitol so that all of those people who live here and enjoy judging other countries without knowing anything about them can open their minds a bit!

  • Finally, What is your favorite color and what adjectives or properties would you say it embodies (example: Purple = subdued, quiet depth, ; yellow = charming, bright)
  • green... it's so vibrant and ALIVE, like the woods at my parents house in the summer... green leaves, green grass and even deeper green shadows... it makes me think of long summers and cool shadows as well as when spring finally comes around!


    Please feel free to mock my questions, I know how stupid they sound.

    Realize that these questions are coming from an NJ.
    not stupid questions! they were fun to answer! And I always appreciate when people are curious about other types instead of just claiming that we're all dumbasses because we're different!

    If someone was going to say nice things about you, what adjectives would you consider to be the most complementing? (Examples: adventurous, brave, resourceful) Different between a man and a woman. Smart/intelligent dont mean to much. Things that are more based on my Fe efforts seem to be appreciated the most.

    If you were sitting in your house, and then all of a sudden, you had a premonition that a massive flood was going to flood through the area in the next 30 minutes, what would you do? How would you prepare, would you get inside your car and drive out of the city, or stay in your home and protect it from your vandalizing neighbors? I would turn on the news to see if the streets were slammed with cars. If the were I would grab stuff and go climb in a tree or sit on the roof of my house depending on the severity of the flood. If the streets were fine I would grab the few things that matter and leave.

    Think back to your teenage years and remember how much of a pain you viewed your parents/teachers/low paying jobs were. What were your ultimate fantasies about? Did you want to run away from home/ prove your teachers wrong and stupid/ become manager and rub the old manager’s nose in it? Never saw them as pains. If I didnt do homework I could careless what the teachers said as it was my choice. Parents I always got along with and low paying jobs I didnt really care about. Only had 2 and I found a way to enjoy myself(avoided boredom). My main goal in life is find a way to enjoy it, never has been a challenge, I think I am easy that way.

    If you had infinite resources, money, and power-furthermore, you did not have to work, you had no responsibilities, and you would never be taken out of power- what would you do for fun? Think long term and large scale. Start going to trade schools that teach things hands on. Open a custom automotive shop that deals with engines, interiors, stereos, etc.

    Finally, What is your favorite color and what adjectives or properties would you say it embodies (example: Purple = subdued, quiet depth, ; yellow = charming, bright) Blue - it looks nice. I dont go much deeper then that
    Im out, its been fun

    You said SP's and SJ's...so does this mean SJ's can answer this too, even thought it's on the SP forum?

    If someone was going to say nice things about you, what adjectives would you consider to be the most complementing? (Examples: adventurous, brave, resourceful)

    Reserved, respectful, meticulous, reliable.

    If you were sitting in your house, and then all of a sudden, you had a premonition that a massive flood was going to flood through the area in the next 30 minutes, what would you do? How would you prepare, would you get inside your car and drive out of the city, or stay in your home and protect it from your vandalizing neighbors?

    I'd gather up things important to me (heirlooms, old photos, my 'important documents' file... and probably my PS3 and DVD collection, some food, water and some TP, clothes and blankets) and try to find the closest high-ground. I could wait it out in my vehicle if I had to.

    Think back to your teenage years and remember how much of a pain you viewed your parents/teachers/low paying jobs were. What were your ultimate fantasies about? Did you want to run away from home/ prove your teachers wrong and stupid/ become manager and rub the old manager’s nose in it?

    Not really, I usually had a pretty good work ethic and got along well with my parents. The choices I have made and work I do is for my own benefit, and not to get back at anybody or show off how much better I am. I don't like being a part of the rat race, I just want to live in comfort.

    If you had infinite resources, money, and power-furthermore, you did not have to work, you had no responsibilities, and you would never be taken out of power- what would you do for fun? Think long term and large scale.

    I'd buy cruise ship and invite everybody I know + let them invite whoever. We could go port to port, living it up, seeing the sights around the world.

    Also at some point I'd hitch a ride to the International Space Station and experience zero-G

    Finally, What is your favorite color and what adjectives or properties would you say it embodies (example: Purple = subdued, quiet depth, ; yellow = charming, bright)

    Not too sure, I've never really had a favorite color. I suppose blue, it is always a calm, cool, relaxed color. I don't associate it with depression or anything.
    ...Then I ducked my head and the lights went out, and two guns blazed in the dark;
    And a woman screamed, and the lights went up, and two men lay stiff and stark...
