Well, I tend to be dramatic. I would also like to know my enneagram type. Enneagram seems intriguing.
1) What aspect of your personality made you unsure of your type?
For obvious reasons, I do not think I can answer this question. I'm still a noob to typology. I would predominantly get INTP, ENTP and INFP in online tests but apparently, they're inaccurate and unreliable. And anyway, I might be prone to being uncertain about my personality type, seeing as I'm quite indecisive and my personality tends fluctuate. I'm not even sure who the real me is. I won't be surprised if I were to attempt this very questionnaire tomorrow and write different answers.
2) What do you yearn for in life? Why?
Because of my aforementioned indecisiveness, I don't even know anymore. I guess I've just given up thinking about what I want to accomplish. Sometimes I want to be a director, sometimes a writer, occasionally an economist, oftentimes a game designer, I even had brief ventures at astronomy (I find astrophysics fascinating) and neuroscience. It's as if I'm an imaginary polymath. At the moment, I'm just lazily scavenging for opportunities.
3) Think about a time where you felt like you were at your finest. Tell us what made you feel that way.
I cannot really recall when exactly I felt my finest. Anyway, my efforts to quantify my experiences fail because there is a plethora of subjective variables to consider.
4) What makes you feel inferior?
Hmmmm.... when I'm accused of being stupid or shallow, which doesn't happen often. Also, when people beat me at my own game. When someone is superior to me in a spectrum of ability that I pride myself in. It's as if what I like about myself has been stolen. Yes, mostly when people downgrade my intelligence. Many people dismiss adjectives like "eccentric" and "weird" but I embrace them. Being weird makes me distinguished. It gives me a sense of individualism. A case of identity (great story, incidentally, one of my favorites from the Sherlock Holmes books written by Arthur Conan Doyle, speaking of which, I do relate to Sherlock from the BBC series).
5) What tends to weigh on your decisions? (Do you think about people, pro-cons, how you feel about it, etc.)
Pros and cons. Advantages and Disadvantages. All from my perspective, of course. I think about people in the sense that I contemplate how the consequences of my decisions might affect other people. Emotions do occasionally factor in my decisions. I also tend to make decisions on impulse. Oh, and of course, I'm very indecisive so I avoid making decisions in the first place.
6) When working on a project what is normally your emphasis? Do you like to have control of the outcome?
I take a casual approach. My emphasis? Hmmm.... I'm not sure. What kind of projects are we talking about, anyway?
I'm not sure.
7) Describe us a time where you had a lot of fun. How is your memory of it?
Again, I cannot particularly recall. I'm very nostalgic and I do retrospect and reminisce almost as a recreation, but I never bother to think about the past to that extent. I'm more interested in understanding how I've changed, or why I am what I am, if that makes any sense.
8) When you want to learn something new, what feels more natural for you? (Are you more prone to be hands on, to theorize, to memorize, etc)
Theorize, I guess. I'm awful at hands-on work and I find memorization futile and strenuous. I think contemplation and rumination describe my approach best, with some external research and speculation.
9) How organized do you to think of yourself as?
My room is definitely a mess but it usually remains clean because my roommate for whatever reason seems to enjoy cleaning it, which confuses me. My mind? I try to organize it in vain. It's full of random stuff. I also tend to go off on tangents a lot.
10) How do you judge new ideas? You try to understand the principles behind it to see if they make sense or do you look for information that supports it?
11) You find harmony by making sure everyone is doing fine and belonging to a given group or by making sure that you follow what you believe and being yourself?
12) Are you the kind that thinks before speaking or do you speak before thinking? Do you prefer one-on-one communication or group discussions?
Both. Or to be more accurate, I think a lot but I somehow always end up speaking before thinking.
Group discussions tend to be more interesting because more people are involved, which means more opinions and more perspectives. It's fun to observe how other people interact. Frankly, I find one-on-one communication boring and in some cases, even intimidating because it requires me to maintain eye contact and I'm horrible at that.
13) Do you jump into action right away or do you like to know where are you jumping before leaping? Does action speaks more than words?
Both, again. Just give me a bit of information about where I'm jumping and then I'll jump right away, so probably the former. Of course, I usually end up not jumping at all because I get too caught up in the idea of jumping, I imagine I've already jumped. Suddenly, I'm thinking about what I'm gonna do after I jump.
14) It's Saturday. You're at home, and your favorite show is about to start. Your friends call you for a night out. What will you do?
Go out. I can watch my favorite show later on the internet due to the marvels of technology. It's static. It can be accessed anytime in the future. The internet, the recap on the telly, the producer's studio, etc. My friends might not do what they intend to do tomorrow.
15) How do you act when you're stressed out?
I try to distract myself and self-indulge. Obviously, this can potentially lead to more problems, subsequently expanding the stress. Paradoxical.
16) What makes you dislike the personalities of some people?
People who are (I was originally going to type who're because of my indolence) narrow-minded, sycophantic and prejudiced. People who say or imply,
"That isn't possible so stop thinking about it."
"Get back to reality. That has never happened before so it won't happen again."
"Be normal. You should do what everyone else does."
"You made a mistake yesterday, so you will keep doing it forever. You won't change."
"That's wrong because no one else does it that way."
"Marijuana should be abolished because our ancestors think it's wrong."
Well... you get the drift.
17) Is there anything you really like talking about with other people?
About our mutual interests and preferences, I guess. Also, telling people about observations I find interesting.
18) What kind of things do pay the least attention to in your life?
I think I have a short attention span.
19) How do your friends perceive you? What is wrong about their perception? ? What would your friends never say about your personality ?
Their perceptions differ in relation to my relationship with them. For example, the perception of my closest friend would differ from the perception of a friend I've just made.
They would never call me boisterous, superficial, emotional and outgoing, I guess.
20) You got a whole day to do whatever you like. What kind of activities do you feel like doing?
Browsing on the internet, reading, playing video games, hanging out with friends (exception - parties), etc. Of course, if I had the resources and the fortitude, I would also love to go to the moon, buy a mansion, write a novel, climb the Mount Everest and the like.
I'll answer the remaining questions soon... hopefully, this is adequate at the moment.
To tell you the truth, no disrespect intended to anyone in particular, but this questionnaire fails to encompass the complexity of my character (I'm prone to narcissism, but not now). The questions are also vague and do not take changeability of behavior and thought process into account. I have so many things to tell about myself but I cannot organize and verbalize them so I think I'm also at fault here. Just keep asking me questions.
