After reading a bunch of threads across the board, I am left a bit puzzled since I can relate to various topics, whether they're from the NF, NT, SP, or SJ sub-forums.
If I have to say, one of my motivators is basically to avoid stress. I used to take things personally, but not so much anymore. Now, I would try to understand where the person is coming from, see what the other perspective is, why that person did something, and so on. I guess that leads to my taking a kind of neutral stance on things like morality and value judgments - not that I don't have any, there are certain things that have me up in arms, but I would consider the context before casting anything. In relationships, if something comes up, I usually try to understand what the issue is, but I wouldn't really know what to do to alleviate the problem. Which can turn out that the issue lies with my not understanding the person or viceversa. A lot of the times. If someone who irritates me have something useful to contribute, I would consider the contribution despite my qualms with said person. The stress avoidance can also lead to aversion of conflict. I prefer discussions over debate. I also withdraw a lot.
I compartmentalize my life. Work stays at work, friends stay separate from family, and so on. I guess it's a form of control that I use over my life to provide some sort of structure. But despite that, I dislike outside forms of structure placed on my life. Being stuck in a 9 to 5 job is restrictive to me.
I'm not a decisive person when it comes to important decisions. I usually have to research everything there is before making up my mind and even then, there's a possibility that something else will come up, and I have to take that into consideration as well, so yeah. Majors and career choices aren't too hot for me. Minor decisions, like where to eat, I'll throw those to someone else. Otherwise, I'll go with what pops to mind first.
Hrm. Anyway, some minor things:
I enjoy modding/customizing things. Also collecting things. I have no issue with doing nothing. I like puzzles and word games. I have no issue with doing nothing but playing word games and puzzles. Experience is big for me as well. You can gain a lot from experience points.
What type do you think I am?
If there's anything else you'd like me to add or clarify, please feel free to ask. Thank you for your time.
