Hi, my name is Tim. I'm 21 years old and currently live in a small town in northern Illinois. It's weird to think that personalities can be categorized, but I feel like I'm learning a lot about other people. I believe I am an INFJ. I have always been very sensitive, which hasn't made life easy...
some information about me:
I'm kind of a shy.. When I was growing up, this seemed to be unacceptable to most people. This made me very self-conscious and I thought something was wrong with me during a large part of life. But eventually I learned to love myself as much as I love everyone else.
I have a twin sister. She's always sort of been the dominant twin. My parents told me how when we were in the womb, I was in danger of being suffocated by her. I wonder if maybe this is why I am so sensitive... I think she is an ENFP, but I'm not too sure. I've never really understood her, to be honest. At times she can be kind and compassionate. At other times, she can be manipulative and sneaky. I don't understand how people can be like that.
I am interested in music, books, films, and philosophy. My favorite kind of music is experimental ambient, but I'm open to all kinds of music as long as its interesting, creative, and innovative. I really like Tim Hecker, Fennesz, flying lotus, and early animal collective. My favorite authors are Haruki Murakami, Roberto Bolano, and Hemingway. I think Andrei Tarkovsky is the greatest filmmaker and my favorite film would have to be Zerkalo (the mirror).
this screenshot is from his film Nostalgia, and I think its a good representation of my mind.
Anyway, i'm excited to meet all of you, and hopefully I can contribute to some interesting discussions!
