Any fun and friendly people want to try typing me? If you already saw what was listed under my avatar previously please ignore that thought for a moment. Any polite help will be appreciated, thank you for any replies in advance! (I have a feeling nobody will reply now, I made too many restrictions lol)
I am seen as “outgoing” or as a “people person.” - Some people I am close to think this.
I feel comfortable in groups and like working in them. - They are fun as long as it's not an important task, or I might be double checking their work.
I have a wide range of friends and know lots of people. - My friends have unique personalities and lifestyles, I have quite a few close friends so I tend to push acquaintances away since I don't need any more ties haha.
I sometimes jump too quickly into an activity and don’t allow enough time to think it over. - It's difficult for me to do this, but I am capable of it and tend to use this during outings with friends.
Before I start a project, I sometimes forget to stop and get clear on what I want to do and why. - Not really, though sometimes I'll forget later.
I am seen as “reflective” or “reserved.” - To acquaintances and to the ones who know me best.
I feel comfortable being alone and like things I can do on my own. - Yes! I love it!
I prefer to know just a few people well. - Yes!
I sometimes spend too much time reflecting and don’t move into action quickly enough. - Yes!
I sometimes forget to check with the outside world to see if my ideas really fit the experience. - Who needs experience when you can figure things out without it! haha jk ...kinda .
I remember events as snapshots of what actually happened. - Lol, who doesn't?
I solve problems by working through facts until I understand the problem. - I'm not aware of how I solve problems, but I would think in a pretty sequential format.
I am pragmatic and look to the “bottom line.” - Not really.
I start with facts and then form a big picture. - I could go either way.
I trust experience first and trust words and symbols less. - Nah.
Sometimes I pay so much attention to facts, either present or past, that I miss new possibilities. - Sometimes.
I remember events by what I read “between the lines” about their meaning. - I look too deeply into every little thing.
I solve problems by leaping between different ideas and possibilities. - I usually just play around when I do that; I think I'm pretty straighforward when it comes to problem solving.
I am interested in doing things that are new and different. - Yes, but that doesn't always mean that I'll choose to do them.
I like to see the big picture, then to find out the facts. - Either way, my main focus is on the big picture, though I enjoy facts by themselves as well.
I trust impressions, symbols, and metaphors more than what I actually experienced. - Yesh.
Sometimes I think so much about new possibilities that I never look at how to make them a reality. - Hahaha or I just plan about putting them into reality and never get to doing it.
I enjoy technical and scientific fields where logic is important. - Yes! I'm a chem major, but I enjoy all subjects that help me to understand the wonders of the world. I enjoy puzzles, too.
I notice inconsistencies. - Yes, I used to have a terrible tick with correcting people, but now I've even developed speaking and writing styles for casual conversation in order to appear that I don't care so much about inconsistencies. If you can't beat 'em join 'em type of a thing it's made me more laid back.
I look for logical explanations or solutions to most everything. - It's natural for me to take the most objective approach, but when people are involved who will be hurt, I focus on finding a gentle solution.
I make decisions with my head and want to be fair. - Yes? lol I'd like to see someone who said no to this.
I believe telling the truth is more important than being tactful. - In some cases truth is most important, in most I think tactfullness should be part of conveying truth, or people won't listen.
Sometimes I miss or don’t value the “people” part of a situation. - Only if they are people I don't understand, like people interested fashion and celebrities. These people are a mystery to me so communicating with them is often ineffective so I tend to glance over them.
I can be seen as too task-oriented, uncaring, or indifferent. - My mom yells at me for this hahaha.
I have a people or communications orientation. - I enjoy living things: people, animals, plants, and so I like to be around them, though I don't necessarily have to be to be content.
I am concerned with harmony and nervous when it is missing. - Only with my SO, other than that I'm not concerned about harmony with family or friends, but I do want people to have fun and enjoy life, whether we are getting along personally or not is irrelevant to me.
I look for what is important to others and express concern for others. - Yes, I'll try to understand and give inspiring words for people having it rough.
I make decisions with my heart and want to be compassionate. - I always work on being more caring towards others, since it has been a weakness in my past.
I believe being tactful is more important than telling the “cold” truth. - Yes lol, no point in speaking if it doesn't get through or just causes another problem hahaha.
Sometimes I miss seeing or communicating the “hard truth” of situations. - I don't think there are any hard truths with interpersonal communications, who gives a crap what we do. We all have our preferences. But when it comes to actual hard truths about what we know of the physical world then there's no problem.
I am sometimes experienced by others as too idealistic, mushy, or indirect. - I come off as direct, though in my mind I'm indirect, and some people don't think I live in the "real world" lolol.
I like to have things decided. - When it comes to some things, I cannot rest until I've made a decision, which may take a very, very long time. xD
I appear to be task oriented. - Yes especially if I enjoy the task or it is competitive.
I like to make lists of things to do. - I enjoy doing this, though I can never stick to it.
I like to get my work done before playing. - Sometimes my work is play, when it isn't, then I don't do it lol.
I plan work to avoid rushing just before a deadline. - I plan to prepare for my procrastination, does that count?
Sometimes I focus so much on the goal that I miss new information. - Yes, especially when stressed.
I like to stay open to respond to whatever happens. - Naturally.
I appear to be loose and casual. I like to keep plans to a minimum. - YESH.
I like to approach work as play or mix work and play. - YESSS!
I work in bursts of energy. - YESSSS!!!
I am stimulated by an approaching deadline. - Unfortunately..
Sometimes I stay open to new information so long I miss making decisions when they are needed. - Hahahahha... yes.
