    I also wanted to answer questions, but didn't want to start a new thread about it . Hope you don't mind sharing!

    Answering this long list of questions for fun

    1) What aspect of your personality made you unsure of your type?

    Resistance to big change, (makes me nervous about how it will go), General anxiety over stuff, liking to be at home, pristine memory, (not supposed to be type related but I always sense that it is, my memory is creepy perfect), kind of set in some very specified routines throughout my day.

    2) What do you yearn for in life? Why?
    Happiness. Never fully understood any other yearning. (Like power or money). A lot of things that I need fall under the category of happiness though, so I guess it's a little more complicated than that. Everything falls under the umbrella of happiness.


    3) Think about a time where you felt like you were at your finest. Tell us what made you feel that way.
    Steady flow of friends in my life, a variety of people to talk to, (culturally, financially, and situationally), lots of love around me, everyone in good health, lots and lots of free time. Challenging my mind in some way. These kinds of things help me feel empowered, enlightened, and freed.

    4) What makes you feel inferior?
    I genuinely don't often feel that feeling. Or I overall feel slightly inferior and have high expectations of myself but it doesn't come from the outside, it comes from myself. I don't really like to compare people. Some people have shittier lives and harder paths than others, and that's just how I see it.

    5) What tends to weigh on your decisions? (Do you think about people, pro-cons, how you feel about it, etc.)

    How I feel plays a big role. I tend to shy away from things that has potential for negative emotional consequences and require a lot of obligation and commitment on my part. I can sometimes find some sort of logic that breaks through that helps me make better decisions. Other people will occasionally play a role depending on how much they would be affected but usually I'm the sole decider regardless of them.
    6) When working on a project what is normally your emphasis? Do you like to have control of the outcome?
    I'm an outcome girl. I would prefer to lead a project than follow. See the end result and delegate. I always have the end result in my head and am rather lazy about legwork so having a team under me is nice. Independence is alright too, but I tend to work faster and more haphazard on my own as I'm an outcome girl, not a "journey" girl, so it doesn't come out as good. Teams where I need to do a lot of legwork and little deciding are the worst possible situation for my productivity level.

    7) Describe us a time where you had a lot of fun. How is your memory of it?

    I grew up on the beach with a laid back, loving family and really good friends. I'm a friendly face so normally end up being a friend magnet. Naturally good times followed. Lots of them, I can't choose only one. Normally the best times happened when I was meeting a lot of new people and learning a lot of new things while stress and pressure was very low. I have trouble noticing them while they are happening and am working on that.

    8) When you want to learn something new, what feels more natural for you? (Are you more prone to be hands on, to theorize, to memorize, etc)

    Inhale big chunks in little detail through skimming reading and powerpoints and looking at graphs. Rewrite or explain stuff on my own. Focus in on minor stuff that I just can't learn conceptually. (Youtube videos or heavy focus on it- like learning EKG rhythms by drawing a heart and trying to doodle imagry of impulses and how they could go wrong and then trying to figure out the names for them), and teaching them to other people, tutoring.

    9) How organized do you to think of yourself as?
    I have a bunch of systems and rules in place that I'm supposed to follow on a daily basis and if I do, I can become organized, (but can become inefficient.) In my more natural state, I don't really think about that stuff at all so I'm super disorganized or I do things if they are absolutely urgent and in my face. Organization is not a difficult skill to learn.

    10) How do you judge new ideas? You try to understand the principles behind it to see if they make sense or do you look for information that supports it?

    Accept them right away if they have any immediate apparent validity. Think about them and ruminate about them on my own if they are interesting. Lots of ideas have a small amount of truth at least and you can learn something. Some of them just don't really add up and then I would just discard them. If I don't trust the source to begin with, I'm more likely to just throw out the idea without giving it a second thought.

    11) You find harmony by making sure everyone is doing fine and belonging to a given group or by making sure that you follow what you believe and being yourself?

    Follow what I believe, of course. Fi person.

    12) Are you the kind that thinks before speaking or do you speak before thinking? Do you prefer one-on-one communication or group discussions?

    Speak before thinking, that's how I learn and process, in general. One on one is better.


    13) Do you jump into action right away or do you like to know where are you jumping before leaping? Does action speaks more than words?

    It depends on the action. If it's an action I'm used to, I will more likely just jump in. New actions I like to do a lot of thinking and planning and learning and reconsidering and worrying.

    14) It's Saturday. You're at home, and your favorite show is about to start. Your friends call you for a night out. What will you do?

    Hmm... I don't watch TV much... And I do have netflix. But for the sake of conversation I'll just say I would go out.

    15) How do you act when you're stressed out?

    I'm not really self-aware or cognizant of what I'm doing when I'm stressed. But I think I snap at people unreasonably, sigh a lot, become really withdrawn, get super duper focused on doing things really fast (if it's a situation that requires actions), and not sway off the plan. Or sometimes I get super relaxed and giggle a lot and find everything funny and mock the situation.

    16) What makes you dislike the personalities of some people?

    People who get very intense and neurotic about small details and apparently minor events. They make me miserable. Extreme rule followers who can't function because they are following rules too closely and literally. Self important people. Yellers. Generally miserable people.

    17) Is there anything you really like talking about with other people?

    With the general public: Health and medical stuff, people's situations, new story ideas I had, plans that would be fun to have, general silliness, stories of abnormal occurrences, psychology, listening to their stuff (as long as it's not just boring stuff and has some meat on it), religion, books I'm reading or that they are reading. Hmm.. there's so many general public "topics of conversation" but often times the topic itself doesn't matter but how interesting the person can make it. So it could be something mundane but told in such a good way that you want to listen. (AKA ISTJ at work telling me how she hates gardening but loves fresh tomatoes in the most bitter cynical overly descriptive way possible) (or how my mom was talking about how her bangs are a big part of her self-image and identity and her hairdresser shouldn't cut them that short because now she's been transported directly back to third grade, I was laughing hysterically by the way she told it) So honestly, at the end of the day, whatever. Lots of people are charming in their own way.

    18) What kind of things do pay the least attention to in your life

    I imagine I pay so little attention to those things that I don't even notice what they are. But I do have to say, I hate watching sports. People around me make me painfully aware of my cluelessness and complete lack of interest in watching sports. So it's like I'm aware that I'm unaware in that case. And, just as an angry bitter side-rant- just because you hate watching sports at the bar doesn't mean there is something inherently wrong with you or that you're missing a part of your brain or soul or something. But it causes such a huge gap in conversation with some people that it's like I have some kind of a disease or mental retardation or something.

    19) How do your friends perceive you? What is wrong about their perception? What would your friends never say about your personality?

    I don't know how my friends perceive me, truly. I'm pretty chameleon-like too so it's hard to say what I'm not. I'm going to bow out of this answer.
