Some things about me:
-I am perfectly fine on my own or in a group. When I am in groups I tend to be popular, but I also have the habit of dominating the conversation and perhaps not give everyone else an equal opportunity to speak. When I'm in class, I'm almost always one of the people who always talks at least once per class, so much so that the professor often knows I haven't done today's readings if I'm overly quiet and will ask me about it after class. I'd have to say I spend most of my time "alone" and online, though I don't consider the internet an entirely solitary activity. I'm fine without face-to-face interaction though, and generally don't enjoy things like parties. I like focused and productive conversation. Small talk is uninteresting and gets on my nerves a lot. In smaller groups or one-on-one, I'm okay with less focused chat.
-I'm a procrastinator, even though I don't like being one. When I have something I like doing, I can dedicate hours at a time to it and remain immensely focused. I have 50+ page long Word documents for my notes on a video game I was playing and my "record" is writing 10,000 words in one day on a subject I was interested in. When it's something I find boring, I have a really hard time getting myself to do it. I always finish things before the deadline, but it's often last minute and stressful. I have a habit of convincing myself that I have plenty of time until I hit the point where I will actually be late if I don't start right now. I'm also resistant to do things I see as pointless busywork, even if not doing it would result in a punishment and doing it would result in a reward. Life is short, I have better uses of my time than doing something pointless for an arbitrary token. Thankfully now that I'm in university almost everything I do for school is productive, but back in grade school I felt like I was learning to get work done more than actually learning the subject. I spent more time making excuses to get out of doing homework than I did actually doing homework...and was damn good at it, too.
-I prefer to be direct and honest. I don't like hinting at people when I want something done, and I don't like it when people hint at me. You need to say what you want.
-I can get overly obsessed with one or two things at a time, to the expense of every other thing I'm doing. I'm prone to being "addicted" to something and devoting myself until I know every single facet of that thing. After a certain amount of time or when the next interest comes along, my interest in the previous subject can drop like a rock and I never touch it again. This leaves a lot of projects thoroughly planned and started but never fully realized, which is something I'm trying to work on.
-I can be stubborn and I don't adapt to change very well. I don't like moving to a new house, or starting a new job, or going to a new school. I don't like when I make plans with a group of people and then they all decide to do something different, especially if I was excited for what we were originally doing. It takes me a long time to get used to things. However, when trouble arises I'm still good at improvising.
-I tend to be "unaware" a lot, especially of other people. Sometimes someone will wave at me and I don't even notice, or someone will say hello and I keep walking because I don't notice that they're talking to me. I forget where I left my keys, or if I've locked my door. I'm also pretty terrible at reading facial expressions and picking up on emotional cues. I don't follow social conventions I disagree with (like, girls always going to the bathroom in groups) even if it makes me stick out and look awkward.
-My interests have leaned more towards pop culture and writing (fiction, nonfiction, journalism, whatever) than anything scientific, with the exception of programming and computer science. Love 'em.
-I've generally been described as witty and humorous, although my sense of humor is very dark. I did some stand-up comedy for a while locally and was pretty well-liked.
-I wouldn't say I'm out of touch with my own feelings, but they're usually private. I don't understand other people's feelings that well and I have a lot of trouble comprehending it when some people make decisions based on feelings alone that would otherwise make their lives very hard. If I had to deal with feeling bad, or deal with my life being in financial ruin, I'd pick feeling bad any day. Worrying about having enough food makes me sad, personally...I also tend to value objectivity over considering everyone's feelings. If I'm making a team, and someone less-capable wants to be on the team and it'd really hurt their feelings if they weren't, while someone more capable is willing to give up their spot, I'd still choose the more capable person.
-I like romantic relationships in theory but they've never really worked out.
-I love competition and can be overly competitive, aggressive, and stubborn at times. I've been told I'm a cut-throat and have a hard time just having fun when I'm up against other people. I take losing very hard, even if nothing much was on the line. At the same time, I welcome comments on what I'm doing if they'll help me improve and can take criticism well. I can't understand people who have no desire to improve themselves and would rather be told they're good when they're not.
-I prefer to do things my own way. I was good at math in school but I often lost marks for not doing the "right" steps to get the answer, and then eventually i just started doing the problems in my head and not showing my work. Then I got docked marks for not showing my work, despite having the right answer. Sometimes the established way is established for a reason, but if you don't open yourself up to new ideas you will never progress.
Any guesses? I have a guess but I don't want to put bias onto anyone. Guessing Enneagram or instinctual variants is fine too although I'll probably go over to that forum later.
