    Default What could I possibly be?

    Hi all and thanks in advance for giving this a go!

    0. Is there anything that may affect the way you answer the questions? For example, a stressful time, mental illness, medications, special life circumstances? Other useful information includes sex, age, and current state of mind.
    I'm recovering from anorexia, but am a lot better without depression any more. I am on antidepressants but get no noticeable side effects.

    1. Click on this link: Flickr: Explore! Look at the random photo for about 30 seconds. Copy and paste it here, and write about your impression of it.
    http://www.flickr.com/photos/karsten...re-2012-12-25/
    It looks like a place I'd love to be. Really beautiful, calm, natural, with trees and a waterfall (which I've never seen before in my life). It's a lot like my idealised view of a place to visit or live. It also makes me think of Canada and how I want to go there and escape from this country.

    2. You are with a group of people in a car, heading to a different town to see your favourite band/artist/musician. Suddenly, the car breaks down for an unknown reason in the middle of nowhere. What are your initial thoughts? What are your outward reactions?
    I'd be upset but not show it and try to make it into a joke. I'd want to get it fixed and get there as fast as we could, so I might take a look at it while other people tried to contact a car help service. I'd also make sure whoever's car it was was okay because it'd be expensive to fix and really bad to have your car break down.

    3. You somehow make it to the concert. The driver wants to go to the afterparty that was announced (and assure you they won't drink so they can drive back later). How do you feel about this party? What do you do?
    I'd go, seeing as they drove me there so I'd kind of owe them. I'd not really want to go (I'm not big on drinking/loud places etc) but I'd probably enjoy it when I got there (I always build things up to seem horrible when they never turn out to be that bad).

    4. On the drive back, your friends are talking. A friend makes a claim that clashes with your current beliefs. What is your inward reaction? What do you outwardly say?
    It would depend how I felt about them and how I felt in myself at the time. I would imagine I'd be quite reserved about it if I wasn't 100% sure I could make my point understood. If I felt I could I'd say something like "Well I heard *** from *** and it makes sense right?" to show them they may be wrong.

    5. What would you do if you actually saw/experienced something that clashes with your previous beliefs, experiences, and habits?
    I get very anxious if my routine is disturbed. I find myself feeling lost and trying to come up with a way to exist in the situation and a way to cope. I tend to get more flutered, maybe even upset, and try and return things to how they were if I can. If soemthing clashes with my beliefs I can get very upset or aggressive, depending on what it is. If anyone tried to hurt an animal near me I'd probably have to stop myself from attacking them physically and just talk to them about it (probably angrily).

    6. What are some of your most important values? How did you come about determining them? How can they change?
    I love animals and nature and my family and look for honesty in people. I don't think anyone could change my core values, but with my less personal values they could be changed if I was convinced otherwise or saw something that went against it.

    7. a) What about your personality most distinguishes you from everyone else? b) If you could change one thing about you personality, what would it be? Why?
    a) I guess I'm good at making jokes and looking on the positive side of things, as well as being able to think on my feet.
    b) I'd like to be more outgoing so I could do more and see more and be more normal I guess (people always get surprised I don't go out to things that much which makes me feel bad).


    8. How do you treat hunches or gut feelings? In what situations are they most often triggered?
    It depends on the situation. Sometimes I ignore them, but if I feel it strongly or I'm very emotional I'll normally believe it. They get triggered when I've had an emotional experience generally, but also under stress or when people act weirdly.

    9. a) What activities energize you most? b) What activities drain you most? Why?
    a) Being in new places with people I know, so I'm not alone but I'm seeing new things. Also thinking about travel and working in a really nice job in the future and making up stories in my head about things (either based on my life or on fiction).
    b) Being in loud/bright/new places alone or being trapped inside somewhere without the choice to leave.


    10. What do you repress about your outward behavior or internal thought process when around others? Why?
    I repress a few things, like aggression and upset, because I feel I'm supposed to be funny and happy around people and don't like them reacting to me in a way that makes me feel vulnerable (i.e. If I cried in public and people started giving my looks and asking if I was okay etc).

    Hey there! A fellow HS fan, I see.

    I think ISFP could work well. Jives with wanting to create a lighthearted atmosphere and having strong/stubborn core values.
    Tentative typing: ISFJ 6w5 or 9w1 (Sp/S[?]).

    I wanted to say ISFJ at first because of question 5 and 9b, but I'm still bad at this and *examining* the cognitive functions so I reread it and saw way more FiSe than SiFe. Maybe ISFP?

    I can't say I know for certain. You seem to know yourself quite well (I mean in a fashion where you've deeply analyzed yourself) which is more of an introvert thing. As well, you seem to depend quite a bit on feeling, but it's hard to decide if it's Fi or Fe; I think more Fi-Te rather than Fe-Ti: your anorexia (though it's independent of type, I can see Fi-Te being more prone to it), you seem to avoid conflict (stronger Fi, weaker Te), your deeply-embedded values that define you (Fi). The way you describe the picture sounds more objective than subjective: "I like it because it is so, so and so" rather than "I like it because I feel so, so and so when looking at it" (it's harder to explain what I mean than it is for me to conceive it, as you can tell); that means you perceive it with Se rather than Ne. In conclusion, I'm thinking ISFP as well.

    Sure thing. One of the tell-tale indicators of ESFPness is a strong (very strong) desire to meet people and see new places. I got the sense from many of your responses that although something is holding you back from going out in the world and exploring (i.e. prior negative experiences, self-doubt, something else), that it seems to be one of your deeper motives.

    I also found it telling that you want a buddy when you go out into the world and explore rather than going by yourself. A lot of people would take that as an indicator of introversion but I see that (wanting a buddy so you don't get isolated in the midst of strangers) in myself a lot and I am definitely an extrovert.

    Your tendency to get overwhelmed by external stimuli also sounds ESxP. And finally, I got the impression from some of your posts that you don't like to make other people feel uncomfortable or be a killjoy. That's kinda F.

    So, yeah, my first impression was ESFP. Hope this helps! Happy typing.

    More exactly Fe, and that's the problem I had: his general concern for people in his environment is more of an Fe thing, but one always crosses between functions (thus Fe will go into Fi, Te into Ti, Se into Ne, and Ni into Si - and vice versa), so that you'll see quite a bit of crossing over when the function is really strong.

    One thing you've left out, Tine5, is how you are with people. I mean, do you generally enjoy your own little space, and, though you want to spend time with friends and such, you don't mind being alone, or is the opposite true? I've noticed one interesting thing which can be used to distinguish extroverts and introverts: when you're left to your own - you could have people around you, but you're not talking to them - do you interact with the environment around you and look around, or do you stare blankly into space deep in thought? Both will do these things, but the former is the product of an extroverted function - and, hence, extroverts will do it more - and the latter is that of an introverted function - so introverts are more prone to it.

    I know what you mean. However, I've noticed ESFPs are uncomfortable being someone else's buzz-kill, even if the concern doesn't extend as far typical FJs' (i.e. wanting to take care of other people, wanting to include everyone, etc.) I'll go back and re-read the original post, but when I first read it, the OP struck me as more FP than FJ.
