I had posted this in my welcome thread, what MBTI vibes do you get from it? I can write more if you need it. I will not say what my type usually is from the tests, I want to see what you think.34 M
I am generally quiet and reserved, also pretty dependable though I tend to be lazy. I am not a take charge kind of guy, I am more passive and you might call me a follower, though internally I don't consider myself to be so (I don't adhere to what others tell me to do unless it is a matter I am not invested in). I have a few unusual interests (sports don't interest me, though I do watch an occasional game), including listening to rock renditions of video game music.
I am not good at coming up with my own objectives or projects, I usually spend too much time thinking about things that nothing gets done unless I get some outside direction (or external circumstance precipitates action). This does not apply for leisure activities or things that I otherwise don't have to do but want to do.
I tend to be obsessive and anal about certain things (i.e. if I have one way of doing something in my mind, and someone contradicts that, I get a little unsettled). I have my own rules about certain things, but overall I consider myself to be pretty flexible. I am a "go with the flow" type person.
I do like to read, though lately I have a short attention span and it is very difficult to stay focused enough (or interested enough) to finish a book. I wind up opening alot of books, reading a chunk of each, never finishing any. The types of books I read range from fiction (sci-fi/thriller/fantasy) to self-help (psychology,e.t.c.). The same thing applies to video games. I download a ton of games to my phone, start them but never finish one. I wasn't always this way, I used to lock myself in my room for a whole day to finish a game, but that was in my youth and now I have little free time to spare, being married with 2 kids and one on the way.
I recently finished my master's degree, I changed my major mid-way from something I thought would help me in a specific, niche type of job to something that was more generalized according to one of my professors. Now I am unsure of whether I made the right decision, as I don't know where I am going to go with it.
I don't enjoy uncertainty, and I am not spontaneous. I like to know what I am getting into and I like to have time to think about things. I am not too good with "thinking on my feet."
I am constantly looking for ways to improve my mindset and how I think about life and day-to-day activities. Alot of the work my mind does is internal, I don't come forth with ideas much and I find it difficult to do so sometimes (as with brainstorming). I am good at solving problems however, when I am able to give the proper amount of thought and effort to them. I usually don't use a straight-line approach to problem solving, I tend to use alot of trial and error, using my instincts and logic as a guide.
I get bored alot. Routine bores me, and I find that very hard to deal with (it is hard for me to make it seem fun). At the same time, I like quiet times or times in small social gatherings, where you can have a decent conversation with someone without too much distraction.
Even though I am not too verbose, it took me a while to write what I did, mainly because I didn't know where to start or what to focus on. If this was an essay, I would take a more structured approach. Gotta get back to work but maybe I'll write more later.
