1. Do you have a hard time forgiving yourself?
For the big stuff, maybe not; but on day to day issues, no problem.

2. Do you find it easy to forgive others?
Sure, but most people's actions don't bug me generally.

3. Do you tend to overanalyze things?
Only about things I care about. Once upon a time, that would have been the opposite sex. Nowadays, no.

4. Does it make you very sad to see people close to you fail (not in the sense that you're let down by them but more that you wish there was something you could do to help them)?
Sure, unless they set themselves to fail, or they were acting maliciously.

5. Do you feel more pain for others than they feel themselves?
Probably not.

7. Do you let people push you around too much? Do you care when people use you?
I give way pretty easy, but it's because I generally don't care, so I'm not so much pushed around as "have nothing better to do, so might as well help"

8. Can you tell when someone is manipulating you? How do you react inwardly and outwardly?
Emotionally manipulate? Yeah, I tend to regard it with a little bit of contempt, which causes my emotions to shut down.

9. Do you come up with ideas and then explore each one very thuroughly, comparing them until you've made clear distinctions and patterns?
If it interest me, sure. my attention span isn't infinite however.

10. Are you bubbly? Do others think of you as an extrovert?
Bubbly and extroverted, yep. I like audiences.

11. Do you get stressed when you think about the corruption that many people knowingly accept and participate in?
Nope. I understand we're all flawed, plus I consider some level of corruption to be neccessary to get stuff done anyway. Harsh enforcement of rules worries me more than lax enforcement (in the OECD, anyway)

12. Are you eccentric?
Guurdle burble?

13. How well do you tolerate small talk?
I can appreciate it, but I like big topic talks more.

14. Do you wish people would cut to the chase or draw things out?
If they're trying to get something done, cut to the chase. If it's small talk, feel free to fill out the details if it's your thing.

15. Are you energized by nature, water, wind, ect?
Heat and humidity tends to drain me, and sunlight's not my favorite, but otherwise, yes

1. Do you have a hard time forgiving yourself?
If my actions unintentionally harm others (or any entity outside myself really), then yes.

2. Do you find it easy to forgive others?
Yes, if I believe their sincerity. If I don't, I will still let an issue go, but I will remember that instance and recall it within a moment's notice.

3. Do you tend to overanalyze things?
Sometimes, depending on the vagueness of a situation.

4. Does it make you very sad to see people close to you fail (not in the sense that you're let down by them but more that you wish there was something you could do to help them)?
Yes, but mostly because I can empathize. I don't think failure is always that bad.

5. Do you feel more pain for others than they feel themselves?
I have no idea.. probably not.

6. Deleted
Fine then.

7. Do you let people push you around too much? Do you care when people use you?
Hell no, but I will test people on their uses of me just to see how far they will go.

8. Can you tell when someone is manipulating you? How do you react inwardly and outwardly?
Almost always. My awareness of it is almost like a defense mechanism, if the tactics used are intended to hurt me, then I won't feel hurt. If the tactics are obvious and not used very well, I just laugh.. Otherwise I might play along.

9. Do you come up with ideas and then explore each one very thuroughly, comparing them until you've made clear distinctions and patterns?
I like to, but more often than not an idea will manifest random thoughts or questions which then tend to distract me haha.

10. Are you bubbly? Do others think of you as an extrovert?
Generally I am a bubbly person around other bubbly people. Others ask me if I'm upset when I'm being introverted lol (which isn't usually the case).

11. Do you get stressed when you think about the corruption that many people knowingly accept and participate in?
No, it just pisses me off.

12. Are you eccentric?
Definitely.

13. How well do you tolerate small talk?
It depends on if it's automated or not.

14. Do you wish people would cut to the chase or draw things out?
It depends on how long they intend to draw things out. I personally prefer to cut to the chase.

15. Are you energized by nature, water, wind, ect?
Most definitely! Unfortunately the heat gets so bad here in TX that I go outside less during the summer. I enjoy the natural elements though.

1. Do you have a hard time forgiving yourself?
If I feel like my actions are affecting myself or others in a negative way it can be a bit hard, yeah. But I try to move on and not get too hung up about it.

2. Do you find it easy to forgive others?

No, generally other people's actions don't really bother me at all.

3. Do you tend to overanalyze things? Yes, if I think something matters I will over-analyze it to the point of obsession. Other times, I just don't care.

4. Does it make you very sad to see people close to you fail (not in the sense that you're let down by them but more that you wish there was something you could do to help them)?
Yes, it's one of the worst feelings.

5. Do you feel more pain for others than they feel themselves?
Sometimes I think I do...I hate it though, it's not like it's going to help or anything. >.<

6. Deleted

7. Do you let people push you around too much? Do you care when people use you?
I'm pretty easy going most of the time. However, generally I can't stand to be controlled in any way.

8. Can you tell when someone is manipulating you? How do you react inwardly and outwardly?
Oh yes, I can tell. I can see right through it. I might possibly let someone push me around if they're up front about it, but /never/ if they're trying to manipulate me. Ever. End of story. However if I notice someone trying to manipulate me, I won't address it directly...if I feel like they're competent at it (i.e. not just making an idiot of themselves), I'll see it as a game I intend to win, if not, I'll just laugh and ignore it.

9. Do you come up with ideas and then explore each one very thuroughly, comparing them until you've made clear distinctions and patterns?
Yes, it's what makes people see me as so indecisive.

10. Are you bubbly? Do others think of you as an extrovert?
It depends, sometimes I'm very reserved...other times I'm a little too...er, bubbly, for lack of a better word. I make the ESFP's in the room cringe. xD

11. Do you get stressed when you think about the corruption that many people knowingly accept and participate in?
Meh, no. It's a messed up place, getting stressed about it's not going to help.

12. Are you eccentric?
That would be the diplomatic way to put it...usually people refer to me as weird or completely insane.

13. How well do you tolerate small talk?
It's a game...and I can play it. I don't see much point in it though...

14. Do you wish people would cut to the chase or draw things out?
Most of the time people take way to long to get to the point.

15. Are you energized by nature, water, wind, ect?
Sometimes...it makes me feel free.

1. Do you have a hard time forgiving yourself?
Depends on how well I can justify the action. If it was something like a slip of the tongue (which is usually is) I'm fairly good at forgiving myself.

2. Do you find it easy to forgive others?
If I can justify their actions, I usually have no trouble forgiving.

3. Do you tend to overanalyze things?
Haha of course

4. Does it make you very sad to see people close to you fail (not in the sense that you're let down by them but more that you wish there was something you could do to help them)?
Oh yes. I always feel bad for those people, it's really hard when my close friends are sad and there's nothing I can do to help them.

5. Do you feel more pain for others than they feel themselves?
No, I don't think so at all.

6. Deleted

7. Do you let people push you around too much? Do you care when people use you?
It depends on how their pushing me. I can reach my limit pretty fast if it's too extreme. If someones using me for something that isnt in my advantage yes I care.

8. Can you tell when someone is manipulating you? How do you react inwardly and outwardly?
Usually it's pretty obvious, I'm good at picking up on who I can and can't trust. If it's something that's bad for me, I'll be so resistant they wont make progress.

9. Do you come up with ideas and then explore each one very thuroughly, comparing them until you've made clear distinctions and patterns?
Yes

10. Are you bubbly? Do others think of you as an extrovert?
No and it's half and half with people thinking I'm extroverted.

11. Do you get stressed when you think about the corruption that many people knowingly accept and participate in?
Yes I always get mad at politicians and cops fucking people over.

12. Are you eccentric?
People say I'm weird, I don't think so

13. How well do you tolerate small talk?
I don't mind small talk. It depends on who the small talk is with.

14. Do you wish people would cut to the chase or draw things out?
It's easier to figure out a situation if it's more detailed, so I can get both sides.

15. Are you energized by nature, water, wind, ect?
Not really, but if a deer scares the shit out of me yes I am energized by that.

1. Do you have a hard time forgiving yourself?

I am very resistant to shame, so I tend to externalize blame rather than direct it at myself. I'm capable of understanding where I went wrong in a cognitive sense, I definitely have done things I regret, but very rarely would it get to the point of asking for any kind of absolution, internal or external.

2. Do you find it easy to forgive others?

Depends on what they did. I can let minor things go, but if it's something I consider significant, I can hold a grudge for a very, very long time, even if I dealt with it in the moment.

3. Do you tend to overanalyze things?

Yeah, I just spent a good 2 minutes overanalyzing this question. Came to the right conclusion in the end, so all's well that ends well.

4. Does it make you very sad to see people close to you fail (not in the sense that you're let down by them but more that you wish there was something you could do to help them)?

Hmm... I'd say yes. However, I usually do give them advice, so it's not as if I didn't do anything to help them along,

5. Do you feel more pain for others than they feel themselves?

No.

6. Deleted

Potato.

7. Do you let people push you around too much? Do you care when people use you?

No, I have a noted streak of defiance that I'm quite proud of. Getting pushed around isn't a problem for me. I can tell if someone is using me, and I usually only go along if I see utility in it.

8. Can you tell when someone is manipulating you? How do you react inwardly and outwardly?

I tend to regard any attempt to use emotions to persuade me as a manipulation attempt, and I always treat them with disdain, spelling out exactly what they're doing, why I won't do it, and how stupid they are for even trying it. I don't defer to my own emotions to make decisions, why would I use yours?

9. Do you come up with ideas and then explore each one very thuroughly, comparing them until you've made clear distinctions and patterns?

Yes.

10. Are you bubbly? Do others think of you as an extrovert?

I most certainly am. Course, there are a million sides to me that most people don't get to see.

11. Do you get stressed when you think about the corruption that many people knowingly accept and participate in?

No, when I'm stressed I think about how much I hate everyone around me (even if I don't really).

12. Are you eccentric?

HAHA! 'Course I am.

13. How well do you tolerate small talk?

I don't. I usually turn it into something else. Nobody seems to like small talk, so why engage in it? It just seems pointless to me, and most people tend to agree.

14. Do you wish people would cut to the chase or draw things out?

Initially, I want them to cut to the chase. After the basic premise has been established, then we can talk at length about its implications.

15. Are you energized by nature, water, wind, ect?

I'm energized by anything that expresses vitality, so massive storms, enormous fires, anything with a lot of highly-charged, electrified force, power, and expression will draw me into it. It's almost like I embody such things, like I have a current of energy that gets activated whenever primal, raw energy is on display.

1. Do you have a hard time forgiving yourself?
Sometimes, especially for stupid shit that I feel like I should have seen coming.

2. Do you find it easy to forgive others?
No, unless I already like them.

3. Do you tend to overanalyze things?
Sometimes? What the fuck, these questions are really vague.

4. Does it make you very sad to see people close to you fail (not in the sense that you're let down by them but more that you wish there was something you could do to help them)?
Not really. I get pissed off rather than sad.

5. Do you feel more pain for others than they feel themselves?
No.

7. Do you let people push you around too much? Do you care when people use you?
Only for mutual benefit, and especially if I think I'm getting the better deal.


8. Can you tell when someone is manipulating you? How do you react inwardly and outwardly?
Everyone manipulates. I react accordingly.

9. Do you come up with ideas and then explore each one very thuroughly, comparing them until you've made clear distinctions and patterns?
I'm an ENTP, not an INTJ.

10. Are you bubbly? Do others think of you as an extrovert?
I can be... stupid question though.

11. Do you get stressed when you think about the corruption that many people knowingly accept and participate in?
Sometimes. I think about how to fix it though.

12. Are you eccentric?
Definitely.

13. How well do you tolerate small talk?
It has its uses.

14. Do you wish people would cut to the chase or draw things out?
Sometimes? Context, context, context. Otherwise stupid question.


15. Are you energized by nature, water, wind, etc.?
What the fuck does this mean?

1. Do you have a hard time forgiving yourself? Not at all.

2. Do you find it easy to forgive others? Yes.

3. Do you tend to overanalyze things? Yep.

4. Does it make you very sad to see people close to you fail (not in the sense that you're let down by them but more that you wish there was something you could do to help them)? Not really.

5. Do you feel more pain for others than they feel themselves? Definitely not.

6. Deleted

7. Do you let people push you around too much? Do you care when people use you? No, I don't let people use me or push me around. I usually find myself in control of situations.

8. Can you tell when someone is manipulating you? How do you react inwardly and outwardly? Yes, I avoid manipulative people.

9. Do you come up with ideas and then explore each one very thuroughly, comparing them until you've made clear distinctions and patterns? Indeed. But only my really good ideas. And I am getting bored so I need a new good idea to distract me from my boredom.

10. Are you bubbly? Do others think of you as an extrovert? People that don't know me well seem to think I'm this insane attention grabbing extrovert, but I can be a little difficult to get to know.

11. Do you get stressed when you think about the corruption that many people knowingly accept and participate in? No. I honestly don't see how thinking about that could be at all stressful.

12. Are you eccentric? Yeah, a little bit.

13. How well do you tolerate small talk? Small talk is pointless conversation in my opinion. I hate those conversations, and I find it a slight struggle to make good small talk. I am much better in a discussion that requires a higher level of thinking.

14. Do you wish people would cut to the chase or draw things out? I don't know! What if the cutting to the chase part is something horrifying? Maybe drag it out. Depends on the situation.

15. Are you energized by nature, water, wind, act? I can't say that I am, no.

You should have seen the thunderstorm that rolled through Houston last night!! I was electrified :D

1. Do you have a hard time forgiving yourself?
I don't really believe in forgiveness.

2. Do you find it easy to forgive others?
Same as #1

3. Do you tend to overanalyze things?
Do you mean as in reading too much into things? Not in my experience, although it would be hard to tell, in case I'm deluding myself.

4. Does it make you very sad to see people close to you fail (not in the sense that you're let down by them but more that you wish there was something you could do to help them)?
Depends. Most of the time, I'm glad they get the opportunity to learn from their mistakes. If it's really bad, though, and on top is my own shortcoming and not just wholly theirs, I find it regrettable.

5. Do you feel more pain for others than they feel themselves?
Very rarely.

7. Do you let people push you around too much? Do you care when people use you?
I'm a bit too cynical and egocentric to let people get away with that, most of the time.

8. Can you tell when someone is manipulating you? How do you react inwardly and outwardly?
Most times I can tell who's capable of manipulation, and who's willing and motivated to do it to me. These people usually never get favours from me. I've been called unreasonable more than once for distrusting people I think are tricksters.

9. Do you come up with ideas and then explore each one very thuroughly, comparing them until you've made clear distinctions and patterns?
I don't really systematically employ pattern recognition, it just happens, is the only way I know to describe it. I think of an idea, and my head simply floods with connections to other ideas.

10. Are you bubbly? Do others think of you as an extrovert?
I can be. And yes, to an extreme degree.

11. Do you get stressed when you think about the corruption that many people knowingly accept and participate in?
What?

12. Are you eccentric?
Yes.

13. How well do you tolerate small talk?
I'm its king.

14. Do you wish people would cut to the chase or draw things out?
Depends on who and what. Rhetoric entertains me, but so does truth.

15. Are you energized by nature, water, wind, ect?
What?

1. Do you have a hard time forgiving yourself?
Absolutely not. When I do something I would need to forgive myself for, I replay the situation enough times to get a better solution, make a mental note of it, then move on. After that, my process is over and no longer feel any guilt or anything like that.

2. Do you find it easy to forgive others?
To forgive others, you must first subscribe to an idea that I do not entertain. That idea is, "someone can do something that isn't them, without extreme duress." If there is extreme duress, there is no reason for me to forgive the other person. They did what they had to do. Without that duress, the human was just being themselves. Nothing for me to forgive. If someone "wrongs" me in some way, it was my fault for giving them the opportunity. Once you lose the ownership, you lose the power to do better next time. I have never forgiven anyone because I have never had to. I have been wronged plenty of times (as everyone has), but I took ownership and made sure it didn't happen again. Refer to question 1. Also, who am I to forgive anyone? I'm no deity nor am I a mirror.

3. Do you tend to overanalyze things?
Unfortunately. I am working harder to avoid this, but it is a long process...-_-

4. Does it make you very sad to see people close to you fail (not in the sense that you're let down by them but more that you wish there was something you could do to help them)?
More frustrated than sad. Especially if I had a solution to the problem. I have a family member who has gone down a rougher path than necessary, but I hope she learns from it. Sad is definitely not the term I'd use lol.

5. Do you feel more pain for others than they feel themselves?
No. Physically, maybe. When someone talks about knee surgery for example, my knees start hurting really badly. I have never had knee surgery, just the idea gives me the creeps! Emotionally, no. I am usually the one to say, "Let's go do something to not dwell on this!" or "Suck it up you girl!" depending on the person and the situation. If I caused the pain, I sit down and explain why I did what I did and try to talk it out.

6. Deleted
I have never been more curious in my life to know what this question was. That is actually quite the lie!

7. Do you let people push you around too much? Do you care when people use you?
I probably let family push me around too much, but average people, nope. I stand up for justice rather than mercy. As far as caring when people use me, it depends on who is using me and for what. If it is a good friend or family member using me for something innocuous in nature, why would I care? If it is someone I don't know trying to use me for something nefarious, yea I have a problem with that. The rest is a sliding scale.

8. Can you tell when someone is manipulating you? How do you react inwardly and outwardly?
I had a very emotionally manipulative mother, which has allowed me to spot emotional manipulation from a mile away. I called my mom on her emotional manipulation one time and she said, "What else does a mother have in her arsenal besides love and guilt trips??" I just had to laugh. Outwardly, I stay calm and act enthralled. Draw them in, let them think it's working. Then I put up a last minute block that must be overcome, which usually the manipulator is willing to do. So now, they have done something for me instead. Inwardly, I'm laughing the whole time.

9. Do you come up with ideas and then explore each one very thuroughly, comparing them until you've made clear distinctions and patterns?
Ha! NOPE! I come up with lots of ideas and explore them all haphazardly until I'm satisfied, which means some are well thought out with details planned, and others....aren't XD. As far as pattern recognition goes, I wish I could answer that. It would help me teach it to kids a lot more effectively, but I just don't know how I do it. The pattern just kind of comes from nowhere and sticks in my brain.

10. Are you bubbly? Do others think of you as an extrovert?
I am quite bubbly and I think 95% of my friends would consider me a massive extrovert by using the social definition. When I'm out, I usually talk to a bunch of people because I get bored otherwise. I leave conversations mid sentence if I'm too bored XD.

11. Do you get stressed when you think about the corruption that many people knowingly accept and participate in?
Stressed is again the wrong word. When I think about all the illegal corruption that happens, I get a bit....upset? When I think about the more prominent legal corruption, I have no choice but to laugh. They beat the system, or make the rules. Either way, they won. Good game.

12. Are you eccentric?
Extremely.

13. How well do you tolerate small talk?
Better than most of the ENTPs on this forum from what I have read. It really depends on the topic. Talk about the weather, and after 3 sentences, I'm bored. Talk about the origin of life on Earth, or sign language and chimps, I'm all ears!

14. Do you wish people would cut to the chase or draw things out?
Depends on the situation. In the IDEAL situation, I'd like to hear things drawn out. The ideal situation is, I'm interested, I have all the time in the world, and I like the person. If all 3 of these things are not met, cut to the chase so I can react.

15. Are you energized by nature, water, wind, ect?
Umm, not really. Texas has too sporadic of weather to plan for outdoor activities. I like nature and find massive amounts of beauty in it, but for now, no. In a more temperate location, perhaps!

1. Do you have a hard time forgiving yourself?
-No, not really. But I'm very self-critical
2. Do you find it easy to forgive others?
-Yup, usually
3. Do you tend to overanalyze things?
-Depends on the thing. On things I care about, my brain doesn't shut up about for weeks
4. Does it make you very sad to see people close to you fail (not in the sense that you're let down by them but more that you wish there was something you could do to help them)?
-Yeah, I mean I feel bad for them if they put in effort and wish I could help... but I definitely don't beat myself over it.
5. Do you feel more pain for others than they feel themselves?
-.... I have no idea.
6. Deleted
...Deteled
7. Do you let people push you around too much? Do you care when people use you?
Nope, not at all actually. As for letting them use me to get something, it's because I honestly don't care that they are.
8. Can you tell when someone is manipulating you? How do you react inwardly and outwardly?
-Yes, I can. I start brainfucking with them.
9. Do you come up with ideas and then explore each one very thuroughly, comparing them until you've made clear distinctions and patterns?
-Depends on what it is. Usually it's more along the lines of 'Hm, idea! Compares, see if it fits, analysis for a while.... (5 minutes later) Hm, new-completely-unrelated idea!'
10. Are you bubbly? Do others think of you as an extrovert?
-.... I wouldn't use the word bubbly. I make a lot of weird noises but not in the 'bubbly' way. Most people would probably consider me an introvert, possibly even shy... until I open my mouth and bombs go off.
11. Do you get stressed when you think about the corruption that many people knowingly accept and participate in?
Not stressed... I honestly don't expect any better from them.
12. Are you eccentric?
-YES. In just about every way possible.
13. How well do you tolerate small talk?
-I just ask random questions and hope it leads to some interesting philosophical conversation.
14. Do you wish people would cut to the chase or draw things out?
-I like when people cut to the chase.
15. Are you energized by nature, water, wind, ect?
- Yes, I love long walks on the beach.

1. Do you have a hard time forgiving yourself?
Not usually. But I have a hard time forgetting.

2. Do you find it easy to forgive others?
Yes; granted as long as they apologize or if my issue with them was something completely stupid and/or irrational

3. Do you tend to over-analyze things?
Yes. Bad memories, my feelings, and how best to react when others are mad at me & I'm just really confused about the situation

4. Does it make you very sad to see people close to you fail (not in the sense that you're let down by them but more that you wish there was something you could do to help them)?
No. I someone I loved failed at something and me helping them would be to their benefit (in the sense that it would help build their character) then I would help. Why the heck would I sit there wishing? If it was not beneficial for me to help them, then they're going to learn from their own mistakes and I would continue to sleep well at night/early morning.

5. Do you feel more pain for others than they feel themselves?
No. I can grieve for the pain of others, but I have never felt more pain for others than they felt for themselves. Why should I feel pain for something that the other party isn't even bugging about (especially when it's not my problem).

7. Do you let people push you around too much? Do you care when people use you?
Define "push around". I tend to let people think I'm an idiot when I really don't care about their opinion, but after a while I'm like "OK, social experiment over. Time to shut your misconceptions down, painfully." But even when I'm being dumb, you can't get me to do things that I don't want to do. It's just not possible.

8. Can you tell when someone is manipulating you? How do you react inwardly and outwardly?
Yes (only my closest friends can manipulate me now and it's mostly because I put my guard down in their presence). I can catch it pretty early and when I do, inwardly, I'm either amused or irritated; how I react outwardly depends on the situation and my mood.

9. Do you come up with ideas and then explore each one very thoroughly, comparing them until you've made clear distinctions and patterns?
Not usually. I come up with an idea, reach a conclusion, and keep it moving — I have things to do (not really). But if it's a particularly interesting or difficult idea I tend to dwell until something newer and just as difficult comes along.

10a. Are you bubbly?
I just asked a friend this and she said "sometimes, but more often ur serious. especially when ur stressed. then u don't tolerate any loud noises or rudeness and u get very serious". There you go.

10b. Do others think of you as an extrovert?

Well I know I am. I get excited when I'm around people I like.

11. Do you get stressed when you think about the corruption that many people knowingly accept and participate in?
Irritated. Not stressed.

12. Are you eccentric?
Yes.....I think.

13. How well do you tolerate small talk?
Not well at all. It's really bad.

14. Do you wish people would cut to the chase or draw things out?
Cut to the chase. I'm struggling with a book right now because it's not quite cutting to the chase.

15. Are you energized by nature, water, wind, etc?
Not in the traditional sense. Being around water (preferably moving water) is very relaxing and makes me daydream; which I find very energizing and relaxing.
