Section 1.

Pick any picture you like - tell us about it. Below are two websites to help find one - feel free to choose anything you want, though.


I have a large collection of pictures I collected from the internet. Main reason to go on facebook, twitter, and other sites. I have plenty of memes, fan art, cartoons/anime, and anything else I find interesting. And yes their is hentai and porn. You try being single your entire life and not get drawn toward it. Ok, getting distracted. Choose this one because this my this is pretty much my reaction to every time I try to get myself to do my homework. Especially my Java homework. I don’t even need that class, but for some reason I thought what the hell, I have been meaning to learn programming. Mistake on my part lol.




How did you approach writing your story? Provide as much detail as possible with regards to your writing process.

Which story? Sometimes I’ll get an idea and just have it bounce around my brain. Sometimes music helps with certain parts. Sometimes the hard part is getting myself to even write. I am not the best with words and my drawing skills are subpar (a lot of stories are better communicated with pictures. Like I said I am not too good with words. I was in special ed for english) and sometimes I think I lack the life experience to write about things. I don’t have much romantic experience and sometimes suspect I might has Aspergers because I can’t relate to many normal people. I get done a lot of my writing while on break at my old job. My writing process is all over the place. I will think of certain parts and then figure out how to get there in the writing or how to go from there. Those scenes I have thought of can change also when I get there. Sometimes it goes in a direction even I wasn’t thinking it was going to go to. One example, I wrote a battle between two viking warriors, a valkyrie, a monk/sage like person, and the writer of the original story he now is living in vs Ice Giants. The battle did end with two of the Vikings dying in battle in my first time I played with the idea. Then when writing it their deaths were a bit more brutal and the monk/sage like person ended up dying also because Loki and his son (the giant ass wolf) was there. I never planned on that happening. Or the army that came to the remaining two’s rescue (the valkyrie was protecting the writer). Still need to finish that one.

Section 2.

Describe your verbal communication skills, your written communication skills, and your body language.
Feel free to go in-depth. If possible, detail your natural communication and body language preferences in various circumstances - with friends, with strangers, at work, in one-on-one situations, in group situations, personal, impersonal, that kind of thing. If anything irritates you about how others communicate, talk about that too.
The more information, the better.


Verbal I think I am meh. I will forget words and how to pronounce them. I had speech problems as a kid. I blame my Italian grandparents. My Italian is very bad by the way. Sometime people think I am serious when I am joking. So miscommunication happens. Writing is a little better. I have more time to mull over what to say and guess how someone might interpret it (sometimes more so after sending the email and I get paranoid I written something down the wrong way). Body I have no idea. I am half Italian so I might be doing something without knowing it lol.




How do you prefer to make decisions, solve problems and/or puzzles?
Run us through your entire process - use specific examples, if possible - some ideas for your answer -
what questions do you ask yourself, if any? What goes through your mind? What do you take into account? What could alter your decisions? Are you comfortable with making a decision and settling on it? Do you like being able to change your decisions, after you've made them?


Ah, decision making. *anxiety starts to creep in* . I am not the best at decision making. I change my mind or get overwhelmed if it is something I am unsure of. Solving problems I am more use to. I repair laptops for my job. I will try to think of what possible is wrong if it is something I haven’t ran into before. I am still new at my job so asking my co workers I have no problem at the place I am at now. My other jobs I would feel like I am annoying and bothering them. This place is more laid back, but I still trying to figure as much as I can myself most of the time. Puzzles it depends on the puzzle. Sudoku I have developed a sense of how some patterns that occur and avoid writing down a number until I am sure it’s definitely the place for it. Puzzle puzzles I work on the edge first and then try to find details in the picture and the pieces to figure when they go.

What goes through my mind when decision making is various possibilities of how things will, go, will I accidently offend, insult, will they hate me, will they think I am a dumb ass (most likely), will I say something wrong, will I blank in thought, is this correct or do I need more information before I can say something, what the hell was I thinking, this is interesting, will I get made fun of for this, will I get scolded or doing this or not doing this. My decisions can be altered when some points out something and they are correct. Also random thoughts, depression, finding new information, finding out I was wrong and have to go through everything to see if there is an issue unless it was something I already predicted was going to be a problem (Murphy and his damn laws have taught me much). I am sometimes comfortable at making a decision at first, but doesn’t last too long. I am usually sure I made the wrong decision most of the time and thinking about it for way too long. I changed my major multiple times. Reason why I have been in and out of school for 17 years and still don’t have an associates.


What are the strongest parts of your personality? The best traits about yourself.

I don’t know. I enjoy that I am a geek/nerd, but feel like I am not nerdy enough. I have been told I am nice, but I think I am too nice. I wish I was a remorseless jerk.
Guess you can say my intelligence, easy going nature, and humor are my best traits. I am an atheist, but I don’t really annoy people with it. They are usually surprised I am one. Then again I don’t run into many creationist and I avoid debates since I am not the best at it despite studying evolution since I was a kid (really loved it and zoology).

I have also seen as a walking encyclopedia (books of information before the wikimedia days) especially if it was something I had a lot of interest in. I am also a gamer. I don’t rage and will admit when I suck. But I seem to be good at playing Mercy in Overwatch (and sometimes D-VA and Rein).


Section 3.



What is a perfect day to you?

A day I actually get myself to draw, watch an anime/cartoon I enjoy, read a graphic novel/manga I been waiting for, and/or get some gaming in (Overwatch, Warcraft, rpgs).

What is a perfect night to you?

A night of not getting depressed, fearing the end of my life (and how I will no longer existing, feeling, thinking, dreaming, creating), not feeling lonely, and the things I said in the perfect day section.



What is your idea of a perfect world?

One without religion (or the need for it), no sjw (guess that falls into religion lol), uncorrupted science, politicians that are actually decent and with intelligence (that’s an impossible dream if I ever saw one), where good movies are made, where good animated shows and movies are made, also goes for video games as well, dating sites don’t make feel so unwanted and worthless (why the hell do I keep going to them. Should just go MGTOW already. Already got the no dating thing down naturally), and the court and education system isn’t crap.


What is your idea of hell on earth?

Being in retail. Thoughts of suicide are creeping in from memories of such jobs. *needs more alone time*



Section 4.


Are you, most of the time, acutely aware of the people, things and events occurring in your immediate surroundings?

Yes, I notice the cats movements from the corner of my eyes. I don’t hear much that is because of my headphones and music from youtube playing to drown things out. I notice people even though I sometimes wish I don’t. As for events. I notice possible accidents I avoid when driving (have avoided hitting deer so far) and I tend to notice wildlife more so than some around me. Current events like in the news. Not so much.

Do you find yourself engaging in the sounds, colours, textures, scents and tastes of your environment - i.e, enjoying what you are currently experiencing, most of the time?

I sometimes I have to stop playing music when reading because it gets distracting. Even the ones I heard a billion times. I can pick on random scents and try to figure out what it is. Textures are important when it comes to clothes. If they're not comfortable I resist wearing them. Even if it has a pop culture reference I love. Colours I notice variations pretty well. I have been learning to draw so that maybe the reason I have gotten decent at it. Taste is a problem for me. I am a picky eater. I enjoy chocolate way too much. Same with soda. I hate the taste of alcohol and cigarettes (taste in my mouth after smoking is very unpleasant). Trying to eat something I don’t like will cause me a lot of stress to the point of stomach issue and the need for pepto.



Do you seek common ground, when faced with new situations - thoughts like "this is like _____" or "this is similar to _____" - something that will stabilise the current situation and turn it into something more comfortable for you?

Yes. And will analyze it for much time even after that situation has passed. Then get uncomfortable because I may have screwed up.

Do you find you have a strong sense for how things 'should be', even when faced with something unfamiliar?

Not that I can recall.


Do you actively seek to connect with other people, and do you make use of social niceties in order to interact with people more smoothly - to make them feel validated, accepted, comfortable? - this includes regular use of "please", "thank you", etc.. general social niceties.


I try to use social niceties to get along with people. I am surprisingly diplomatic sometimes. Or I am so non threatening to people, they seem to be more relaxed. Sometimes I over due it because I am not sure if I am doing it right.


Do you comfortably juggle multiple possible options in your mind, when problem solving? Do you find yourself exploring each of them - entertaining any possibilities that may arise from them, and enjoy envisioning scenarios where these might play out?

Sometimes. I try to envision scenarios to better handle an interaction with someone or some group. I also doing when problem solving trying to narrow down the problem and various ways to troubleshoot to get the correct fix. Sometimes I do it too much ort things go completely not like expected. Sometimes I can just wing it (then regrets come later and never forgotten).



Do you have a tendency to organise the world around you? Is it important for you to be in an orderly environment?
This might manifest as a preference for predictability - consider these questions on a smaller scale than what might be in your mind - i.e. is it important that the knifes go in the knifes slot, that the Nintendo games go where the Nintendo games go, etc..

I have been known to time to time, but the chaos come back in no time. My desk is almost always a mess. I try to things in general area like books on the bookshelf (some dvd and video games might be on there also).

Do you find you are impatient with regards to efficiency?

Again, consider this also at a smaller scale - for example, do you prefer to rush through whatever chores that need to be done, so they're out the way?

I use efficiency out of laziness. If I can get a couple of things done at the same time I will try to find a way just to speed or get more done. Impatient usually comes from boredom like waiting for the ship to Juno in FFXI.


Is it important for you to define things in your head?
This might manifest as googling words you've unfamiliar with so you actually know for sure what you're reading, or it might manifest as a preference to completely understand something to the point you can explain it to others in a simplified manner - born out of the precise definitions you've crafted in your mind.

Yes. It will bother me a little if I don’t.

Is it of high importance to you, to understand all of the pieces of a puzzle.. or all of the information you're given, before coming to a decision or a conclusion about anything?
This might manifest as a tendency to hesitate when coming to conclusions or decisions as you don't feel you fully defined, or understood, all relevant information yet.

Yes. I tend to overthink things and afraid I might be missing a piece of information that would be important to know. I studied dating for years and still feel like I have no idea how it works and how to do it. Granted that was after failing in my middle and high school years where I just would ask would you go out with me. I figured there had to be more to it than that and I wasn’t sure what to do if I got a yes. Back then it was more of ask now figure everything else later. Man I was stupid back in those days. Bold, but stupid.

I missed one in section 1. This is what happens when I copy from someone else's post.

Pick a word, any word - brainstorm - whether it's just words that spring to mind, or ideas, or memories, whatever - just brainstorm for a while. No restrictions. Below is a link for a random word, if it helps.


bomb (don't worry. I am way too lazy to make one. Also all that trouble with the law isn't worth it)

I was thinking about how I might be dragged to bars tonight so that popped up. I don't like going to bars since they are loud, crowded, and boring as hell. So boring I watch the sports channel which bore me even more so to the point of falling asleep. Then I get scolded for that.

You strike me as an ISTJ (Si>Te>Fi>Ne). What do you think?
Since I am currently doing research on Autism Spectrum Disorder, your suspicion of dealing with Aspergers, really caught my attention. I definitely see some possibly autistic traits in what you wrote about yourself on here (problems with dating, not knowing if social niceties are used "correctly", speech problems as a kid, a preference for the "categorical" such as zoology). Have you ever thought about getting the diagnostics done? Because if you really have ASD, you could benefit from therapy!

Had some one suggest that before. But I have a hard time thinking of myself as an ISTJ. Te is probably one of my weaker traits. I have no real goals, ignore conventional wisdom, and any other stereotypes of Te I tend to ignore or get annoyed of. Some things I didn't mention like also wanting to be a writer, graphic novelist, and a game designer I am not sure if that might throw the ISTJ idea out the window. I still have career ADD. Also language ADD with what language to learn, type of work outs to do, what martial arts to study, and what experiments to perform on myself. I don't see me growing out of that (I am 35).

I have thought of diagnostics done to see if I have Asperger, but the last time I looked for one in my area. It was only for children.

Thank you for your typing.

@Xcopy @Turi I challenge you to type me.. Again. Mainly based off this questionnaire.
I am curious, but if I recall, you thought you were INFP before didn't you? The vibe you're giving in this questionnaire is very INTP-ish to me.

INTP and INFP are the two I get in tests a lot. I also thought I might have been ISFP a while back (I was typed by professionally with that one). When it comes to test many of the answers I have no idea what the correct answer is. I know it's suppose to be no wrong answer, but if a question ask whether you like this more or less and I have no idea what 'this' is. Of course the worst ones are the ones I know will lead to a certain outcome I start to over analyze the answer because I am afraid I would be lying to myself just so I can get the result I prefer instead of what it should be. Compound that with knowing how our bias can get the better of ourselves and we have gone down the rabbit hole.

It's also possible I may subconsciously make myself to seem more INTP through answering the questions. lol

Well, the one thing I can say that is good about Turi's questionnaire is that some of the questions give more leeway, and let's you stretch your muscles so to speak, the elbow room certainly allows you more room to act and display your functions. I would have to check your posts to see how you approach various subjects. I saw more of a leniency towards logic than personal belief.

bump. And yes I am still procrastinating on doing my linux project and other home work. Thankfully I am done with Java class. Last week was the finale and some how I am managing to get an A in that class. I will admit one part was fun. He had us do a random number generator between 1 and 10. So I got a little carried away with using table top rpg games as my inspiration. Also the song where you are being chased by Shai LaBueof.

Here's a video for the hell of it.

Here is another type me video that I have done in the past (not my best work) and a video I did when I and some other people thought I was an INTP (some still think I am. Me I am not sure at the moment).



The poll is on the previous post. If it is not working or making you go somewhere else besides the poll, please let me know and I will find another site to create one on. I didn't want to make another thread because I think there is enough threads I made in this section.

@Sparky there are videos where I show my face. If you are still pretty sure I am an ENTP please don't hesitate to vote.

It's almost the end of the year and got only 4 votes and a few responses on Reddit. It seems everyone is in agreement of me being XNTP. But it seems to be contested on whether I am an Introvert or Extrovert. I am probably not going to get any more votes and might resign to a coin toss or some other method.

This thread can be closed.

Thank you all that voted or have actually looked at everything and not sure or those who saw everything out of curiosity.

I know I said that this can be closed, but due to current identity crisis (a never ending thing it seems) and slight boredom I am bumping thread to see if anyone have any new insights

Which two dichotomy preferring do you most strongly relate two?
The only two dichotomys I am sure of is I and P. Used to be pretty sure of N, but since that one person (a professional) typed me as ISFP the seed of doubt has been planted. As for T and F. Those two I am never really sure which one I relate to more or less. Actually quantifying which dichotomy I relate to more seems tricky. The big 5 I am usually consistent with result. High Openness above average agreeableness, above average neurotic, low conscientious, and low extroversion. Not really sure if that would help clarify things
