I am 18 years old student from Poland. Although I planned my future, I have got currently huge doubts about it and I am feeling lost when it comes to my further education. And this year I pass final exams…
(I have nowhere to complain about it and I believe that this is a place full...
Title says it all, can your mbti type be linked with you political preference or not?
I personally am not 100% sure but I tend to lean to the side of the argument that argues that it is not as I haven't come across any evidence that convinces me that it is. If you believe it is however feel free...
Mum: I think you should get an overseas boyfriend.
Me: I've already said, I want an overseas husband.
Mum: Don’t forget, you don’t have government savings. If he wants to buy a home, the parents side might not be happy with it.
Me: Yeah, I know. That’s why. I don’t have a lot of money saved...
I've been trying to understand how is it that people who've had it all (so to speak) in terms of shelter, financial stability, health, etcetera, can come to develop a strong self-preservation instinctual variant.
Could it be that because you've had it "all", you want to keep as much as you can...
Me: Also, yesterday what did I tell you? …I told you not to talk about my business, right?
Mum: Yeah. I didn’t say anything.
Me: You told them my publisher is in Florida and even went into detail about what type of books I write. My publisher is not in Florida.
Mum: Ah, that one nevermind...
I mean if I'm a guy and I meet a single girl on Valentine's Eve that I'm interested in, I must be really dumb or have no balls if I don't ask her out the next day since it's a weekend too, right? Why would I want to spend Valentine's on my own if I can spend it with a girl even if it's a group...
Me: Hey mum, do we have anything on, on Valentine's Eve.
Mum: Hm. Let me check.... Oh yeah we have grandma's dinner.
Me: We do? Oh crap. Oh yeah we do.
Mum: Didn't you write it down?
Me: I did. I must have overlooked it. Luckily I double confirm with you. Hm.
Me: Oh I signed up...
Me: You can sit here at the bus stop with your laptop, I'll go get the drinks.
Mum: Sure? I can carry my laptop along. As long as we don't buy anything else
Me: Yeah I can leave my things here too. A bit heavy.
Mum: Ooo. Okay.... No no I think I go with you better.
Me: Oh ok. Why?
An ENFP writes you for some advice. My personality will sound familiar: a million different interests, not particularly good at finishing things, drawn towards creative fields, loud personality, a bit hedonistic, also a bit of a risk-taker.
I am considering a career in finance. I have...
Mum: Hey daughter, next week your uncle is going overseas for a holiday for two days.
Me: What? Then who’s going to look after grandparents?
Mum: They asked me to go down and stay to help out. Then I have a computer test on one of those days. So…
Me: So, you want me to go down?
Markets. Free. Capitalism. Free from what? Free for whom? In what way? What does it mean? Does the mythic ideal hold water?
Do it exist?
Do it function?
Is it obvious what My Opinion is?
Am I wearing brown slacks?
What does the West think of free market capitalism?
What do the Rest...
I was thinking about supply and demand today. I think it’s interesting. I think the supply and demand for books was really thrown a curveball with the advent of the internet. For most basic necessities, supply is given when there is a demand. At least, for established products and services, like...
RIP John Nash :( I watched the movie based on his life when I was a teenager, then I read the book associated with it. I even have the disc somewhere… I’m sure part of my interest in Economics came from that. :(
I always loved the quote from the movie!
“I've always believed in numbers and the...
Mentalizing by Default
This is not the first time we’ve encountered the mentalizing system. In its first appearance, back in Chapter 2, I referred to it as the default network. These regions that are involved in understanding the minds of others are largely the same regions that turn on...
Mum: Your number 4 aunt-grandmother. You know the one with dialysis?
Me: The one that hurt her thigh from a fall? Has a fracture?
Mum: Yeah, that one. Do you know what happened recently? When grandmother gave her money?
Me: Not really. I mean, I heard uncle complaining about it, but I’m not...
But I'm scared to major in business. I heard that there are presentations and group work, and I'm not much of a people person and absolutely hate following and leading. (Oh, woe is me!)
Being an accountant is a set in stone goal for me, though.
Just wondering if its a good thing for someone...
I’m not included in my grandparent’s will. Just wanted to clear this shit up before people think I’m doing this for the chance at earning some cash in the long-run or something. My mother, me, and my uncle were there at the lawyer’s office when my grandparents made their will a few years back...
I want money.
When someone walks up to you and tells you that, what's your immediate reaction? Mine would be oh, hi, no, I don't have any money to give you. And then I'll start thinking they're crazy or greedy and really need some help mentally to come up to me and say that and DEMAND MY money...
Let's see if INTP's tend towards utopian, authoritarian or anarchist systems.
The choices are roughly (and ironically) arranged in the following specific order (take note that you can select more than one choice in the poll).
Back on my worrying loop. Even when I break it down with cognitive function (I've been told that this type of worrying is what happens when Ni is linked to Fi instead of Ti) I still can't manage to break away from it. My worries seem all encompassing, so how can it not be relevant to everything...
