    Default An introvert introduces himself

    Hello, everyone!

    I already registered over at INTJforum and INTPcentral before I learned about this place. I recently expressed doubt about my Type (previously I suspected either INTJ or INTP) but I'm fairly certain after a few tests that I'm INTP, especially after reading the in-depth profile over at INTP Central which was "akin to reading an unpublished autobiography", as many have commented. I see myself in every INXX type. I'm told that this is Ne at work, finding similarities where there might not be any. Or I might just simply be well balanced. I also suspect I might have very well developed Fi as I can be quite the idealist sometimes, though objective reasoning always wins in the end. I have absolute respect for the Truth no matter how cruel or painful it may be.

    Being introverted I naturally don't have many friends. Social awkwardness is one of my hallmarks. Right now I can think of maybe two people that could be called close friends. I don't like to use the word friend, however, as I don't socialize much with them, but they're the closest I have. Come to think of it, they're probably the only ones I've ever had. Most others have been acquintances from either school or work that one eventually outgrew and lost contact with. Despite this I can really enjoy socializing with people, at which point my more hidden extraverted nature comes out for play, but only ever so often. Most of the time I just want to be left alone.

    I love abstract discussion just for the sake of it even though I might be shy about getting my point across (I'm usually just observing most of the time). I generally detest sports and action movies and anything else of the kind, but most of all rote learning. I am not high on numbers, formulae, periodic systems or what have you. Despite this mathematics, I like to think, always came naturally to me. I like playing with it. I dislike physics, though, as I find it to be a counter-intuitive subject (and I don't mean that in an arrogant way).

    What else? I love music, even though I'm not a bit musical myself. Anything goes except hip hop, jazz, rap, r&b, and anything else even remotely similar. Been exploring the realm of classical (especially baroque) and medieval music for some time now, as well as ambient and world music. Love the organ (especially Bach) and also pretty much anything metal. Miscellaneous interests include beasts and nature, introspection, literature, mathematics, music, philosophy and politics (though I consider actively engaging in politics to be a waste of one's life). I am deeply existentialist and nihilist at heart and, I suppose, always have been. Arthur Schopenhauer and Friedrich Nietzsche are my main cues in life (I never really liked Kierkegaard, anyway).

    I don't want people knowing details about my life because I know they will misinterpret everything, so I tend to value my anonymity and hard-to-get-to-know approach. This includes the internet, by the way.

    And that, I suppose, is that. Thank you very much.

    Hello.

    I liked your life in six words post. It resonated and then depressed in knowing I'm not that clever.

    Do you like Tango nuevo? Like Piazzolla.


    And I've been slightly obsessed with the Mendelssohn track, Venetian Gondola song on this album. I somewhat hope you like it too.

    -How beautiful, this pale Endymion hour.
    -What are you talking about?
    -Endymion, my dear. A beautiful youth possessed by the moon.
    -Well, forget about him and get to bed.
    -Yes, my dear.

    I do very much, thank you. I've been playing it on loop for some time now. I also like her recording of Beethoven's Piano Sonata No. 14, as well.

    I'm glad you like it. I think she plays on an electric piano of one sort or another, so it always sounds a little artificial. However, that's the only recording I've found of the Venetian Gondola song.

    Here's a more traditional moonlight sonata, played more softly and with natural timbre.

    Is this the one from the 10 CD-set The Top 100 Masterpieces of Classical Music 1685-1928? They sound awfully similar to me. And yes, I agree, very natural timbre; almost dreamlike.
