Hello, all. This is my first thread (aside from my intro) so please don’t be too harsh, I’m still learning the ropes around here. I’ve been interested in type for a couple of months now and despite having a fair understanding of cognitive function, I’m still a bit stumped about my own type. I think it’s difficult for anyone to provide a truly objective description of themselves but I have done my best.
-I tend to freak out if I think that I will be late to a class, appointment or…anything, really.
-In the past, I have been told that I am too concerned with the opinions of others and I do too much people-pleasing. Not that I can’t draw the line between being adaptable and considerate, and allowing myself to be taken advantage of, but sometimes I let people get away with too much.
-In my daily life I am fairly reserved, modest, and quiet (shy) but once I open up to someone I have no reservations about being absolutely candid.
-I place a lot of value on honesty and intention. If you wrong me but you meant well I will be okay with it, but if I think your intentions are crappy, well basically we’re done. Also, I know that everyone lies but anything other than the occasional white lie is really a deal-breaker.
-I like to analyze situations from a myriad of different perspectives before forming an opinion about something (if forming an opinion is even appropriate within the context of the situation). I think that understanding a situation thoroughly is more valuable than passing judgments. This however does not mean that I won’t give constructive feedback when necessary.
-I can be a bit of a perfectionist. I will admit that sometimes it becomes a bit excessive :/ Ironically, I’m not a complete neat freak at home but I do like to keep my home fairly organized (I didn’t say tidy…just an organized mess ).
-I’m fairly sure that I am an introvert because social settings tend to drain me.
-I am generally very compassionate towards people in need and enjoy helping others.
-On my off days I become bitter, snippy and sarcastic. I also tend to just stay home on these days and try not to interact with anyone because these times are usually accompanied by a bad case of verbal diarrhea.
-I am not a leader per se, but I think I have leadership potential.
-I am not extremely social, I keep to myself a lot and don’t seek out or start conversations. People say that I come off as aloof because I usually don’t follow what’s going on around me and in conversation. I sometimes phrase things not so well when speaking with others. I need a lot of time to develop my ideas.
-I over-analyze things frequently. It looks like I am absent minded when I am really lost in thought.
I hope all of this is pertinent lol. I tend to ramble from time to time. Please fill me in if I’m missing anything that’s really key. Tia for your responses and insights.
