I am posting too much in here, but there is not rule against that so bare with me a little. I'm generally curious and I can't decide over my type so I'll let you decide. No assumptions, I just filled out this questionnaire from MasterOfAwesome's thread. Thank you!
I keep reading about functions but I'm just so confued so I'll leave my typing to you, if you will.
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.
Nope, I'm completely clean and thankfully not mentally ill (I hope).
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.
There are snowy mountains and a little town. I think the building on the right is some kind of a religious building. The mountains seem like a great place to go skiing. Why the hell there is no snow on the trees but lots on the mountains? Silly question, it must've dried off, but the mountains are higher so the snow will not dry yet. I don't know why but this town reminds me of a Muslim town. I have no idea why.
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?
"No, no, no!" I scream, probably. I can't believe how the hell the car decided to break down just right now. Great, the luck I have. I'll probably get really stressed about being late and yell at everyone trying to calm me down. I'll be really scared about missing it because it's my favorite music artist and I also spent a lot of money on the ticket, gas and stuff. I might cry, really. But after like 15 minutes of freaking out I take a few deep breaths in order to calm down. I'll try order a cab, and if it won't work we'll have to walk to the nearest town. I'll be super disappointed and cranky, and I'll probably be a bit hostile to everyone around me until someone tries to distract me and talk about something that will make me feel better, and I'll probably cheer up a bit.
3. You somehow make it to the concert. The driver wants to go to the after party 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?
Sure. We're already here on the concert and I'm happy by the fact that we actually made it to the concert. I say that I think I'll go, but we'll see how I'll feel after the concert, I might be too tired to go to the party.
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?
I simply state my opinion without disregarding his. If he continues to argue, I will argue back. I would tell my opinion and why its right, but I'll also consider the logical concept of his beliefs and will make it clear why I understand that those are his beliefs, but make sure I stand firmly by my belief. If I'll see no logic behind of it, I'll simply tell them I don't see the point and choose to disagree with him.
5. What would you do if you actually saw/experienced something that clashes with your previous beliefs, experiences, and habits?
Ah, I don't know. Be amazed? Like, alright. What should I do now? Probably search some logical explanation.
6. What are some of your most important values? How did you come about determining them? How can they change?
Kill them with niceness. No but really; be respectful to everyone, and you'll gain it back. Plus, everyone deserves respect. Determination; be dedicated to you work, be serious, don't compromise, it's okay to be stubborn sometimes. Tolerance; things might seem peculiar to you, but you have to keep your head open for new ideas. Most of the time, it's for the better. Ambition; keep your standards high, and reach your goals. There's nothing more fulfilling than that! I don't really think of that, I think maybe it's values that I grew on, something that I was taught. They can be changed if I'm proven they don't work, ha.
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'm unforgettable. I'm not sure how to explain this, but people will remember me no matter what I do. I stand from the crowd without even trying; people will know me when I never heard about them. It can be both positive and both negative, though. My friends and me once played a game when we had a list of traits and we had to categorize ourselves in each trait (which was quite fun). My special traits according to my friends are: cynical, funny, elegant, leader (all of them voted for me, including myself), generous, fair and hardworking.
b) I'm unable to relax. It's crazy! Even when I'm relaxing, I don't really relax; there's always something bothering my mind, another something that needs to be done and that sucks. Also, I feel like I can't have fun. I mean, I do have fun, but not the same kind of fun that my ESFP sister does, for example. I'd like to be a little freer. Also, I am usually self confident but sometimes I get those self doubts, which I'd like to get rid of. For example; it took me a long time to find friends that I actually liked and loved, and I only found those on 9th grade last year (not that I was bullied or anything alike- I simply didn't liked my friends), and when they started to interact with my sister and liked her a lot (damn it, two of them came to stay at my house while I was away just to watch Doctor Who with my sister!) I was really afraid they're going to like her more than me. I told my sister she's not allowed to talk to them and I told my friends what they did bother me a lot. I thought it was alright until my mum explained how irrational it is. Ugh. But I just talk too much right now, right? Oh, and p e r f e c t i o n i s m!
8. How do you treat hunches or gut feelings? In what situations are they most often triggered?
When I feel a hunch I usually just check out if it's right. It's mostly wrong though, ha. Feelings however are a lot more complicated; I do not base my decisions over emotions and they rarely bother me. I have a very stable mood. I express happiness and excitement, and when I really love someone trust me, they'll know it. I don't talk about the deep feelings though, I don't think they're important and usually I don't share them. One time I cried to my friend about how much I feel unappreciated sometimes by my family, and she's not used to see me like that. I do feel deep emotions; I don't show it because I have better things to worry about. My emotions are triggered by a conflict that involves emotion, most definitely.
9. a) What activities energize you most? b) What activities drain you most? Why?
I know what drains me the most; boredom. You know those ceremonies or classes that last forever? I can't stand those. It drains me and I'm super tired after that. I think being on stage, having someone in my house (being the hostess, I like that), a heated discussion, meeting new people and taking exams (I don't know, it kind of is) really energizes me!
10. What do you repress about your outward behavior or internal thought process when around others? Why?
I talk really fast. It used to be a lot worse but I talk really quickly and it can be really difficult for others to understand me. I also talk super loud, but I don't really repress that. I can be a control freak and get really mad when people don't meet my expectations, and I try to not get mad so much because it's getting annoying to my surrounding. I sometimes want to say something really hurtful but not so important, but I stop myself because I don't want to cause unnecessary fights? I'm not a repressed person.
Thank you so much for helping me!
