Some recent events made me wonder my type and if I am not actually a feeler. Any help is appreciated.

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.
Not really. I am a bit more determined than usual, but nothing out of the ordinary.

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.
Ok, this is the first photo I saw. Link. I don't like it. It is way too generic and it doesn't have anything that really peeks my interest or makes me curios. It is quite plain and boring. Sure, colors are nice and composition is well done, but this concept was taken a million times over.

I believe the main problem I have with it is that it lacks an interesting subject. In the foreground, the main thing the eye is attracted to are two rocks... However, that was not the first thing I gazed upon, but my eye was being directed towards the sun, mainly because of the geometrical shapes of the rocks that form a line that directs the eye towards it. Again, my main issue with it is that it is very boring. There are a million pictures of sunrises taken from the sea.

The only thing that was supposed to be interesting were the waves crashing into the boulders. Hm, this makes me curious. If it was really early, that means the lighting was bad, but in order to capture the water the way he did it, he really needed a very fast shutter speed. I am a bit curios about how exactly he got the picture together, but I am assuming some fancy editing skills were used there (maybe he took 2 pictures and then blended them together?)

At any rate, from a purely aesthetic point of view, I am not really impressed with the wave.

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?
Let's fix it! I don't know a lot about cars, but it'd take a look and try to understand what's wrong (of course, assuming there wasn't anyone else in there that actually knew what he was doing).
Would also try to find some alternative means of getting to the concert.

3. You somehow make it to the concert. The driver wants to go to the afterparty 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?
I never like the idea of going to a party, but once I actually get there I feel much better than I initially anticipated. I almost never want to go, but for some reason, I feel really great hanging out with people. Of course, it really depends on what kind of party it is. While I am really not a fan of dancing, I enjoy talking about various interesting topics with people, while enjoying a good drink and a cigarette or two.

So, in case I wasn't clear, a) I dislike the idea. b) I go there anyway and end up having a good time.

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 don't really have very strong beliefs, as I am usually quite open to ideas, so it is kind of hard for me to imagine myself in such a setup. I guess I wouldn't feel at all offended or anything, I'd probably have debate with him and try to argument my belief as well as possible or counter him on his inconsistencies. Maybe I will even reflect on whether he is right or not.

5. What would you do if you actually saw/experienced something that clashes with your previous beliefs, experiences, and habits?
This is waaay too vague of a question. For example, it really depends on the belief, and on the situation. In most cases, I would probably attempt to correct the behavior that clashes with my beliefs (even this term is extremely general).

6. What are some of your most important values? How did you come about determining them? How can they change?
I appreciate intelligence, competence, wisdom, diligence, confidence, bravery, goodness and action. I came to determine them through my life experience. They can change by starting a different pattern that goes against the first one, if that pattern persists for long enough to alter them.

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) My openness, I guess. I can adapt quite easily to every situation I come across. This comes at a price, which gets me to b)I really wish I had a more stable personality. I have this periodical personality crisis in which I don't exactly who I am or how exactly I should behave. I oscillate a lot between being incredibly goofy and lighthearted to being extremely serious and focused. I really wish I was more stable and less fickle.

8. How do you treat hunches or gut feelings? In what situations are they most often triggered?
I usually trust them. I mostly get them when solving a problem, or picking an argument, or whatever. I just have a feeling as in this is correct or wrong. For example, I was once solving a case and I was writing the motivation, but as I was writing it I didn't feel comfortable with it. I eventually switched my position (last minute), even though I had a greater argument for the other part. After handing in the paper I was happy to learn that it was the right thing to do.
HOWEVER, I should notice I don't get them very often.

9. a) What activities energize you most? b) What activities drain you most? Why?
I enjoy having complex things to do and being entertained. I really enjoy the feeling of being completely into the heart of a matter while trying to figure it out (a complex game, a complex puzzle, a complex book, a complex case... you get the idea). I really dislike going through things several times, because once I am done with a thing, I usually get bored by doing it over and over again if nothing new arises. Curiously enough, however, I am not against routine. I enjoy waking up every day at 7, then going to the gym, to classes, to library and then meeting up with my friends. However, I hate re-reading books for college, even though I was enthusiastic the first time I read them.
I get drained by prolonged, useless socializing. I am perfectly fine with socializing as long as the subject really intrigues me, but discussing shit like how Kim Kardashian does hell knows what, or even talk about weather and such is tiring for me. Having to deal with feelings, however, is especially hard for me and it drains me of a lot of energy.

10. What do you repress about your outward behavior or internal thought process when around others? Why?
My insecurity. I never seem to know how exactly I am supposed to react over one thing or another, especially if it is... personal stuff. I needed to talk to a girl about how I wasn't interested in her the other day, and it was incredibly tiring. As a rule, I am usually clueless about whether I am being too cold, or too harsh, and so on...

Could you please help me out, if you've got the time?

I would say INTP, Ti, from this.

I would have expected answers that were a lot more committal and self-serving if you were an Fi dom.

You seemed typical Ti dom really. In that you don't have strong moral convictions and are eager to learn others' points of view to get a better understanding of anything and everything.


I find these youtubers to strongly embody Fi.

I would be shocked if you could relate to them, to be honest... based on your answers here.


I find these people to be very Ti

As you can see, they don't look very similar look absolutely nothing alike.

That "explain picture" question. xD INTP. I thought that potential shutter speed of camera needed to capture that water splash was most interesting about that too.

Thanks. Some of those channels are confusing, as they have multiple people featured in various videos.
On a side note, what do you think of this youtuber's personality? INTP?

To clarify, INTP verdic is from entire questionnaire. Not just picture thing. The picture think made me snort since those tend to be all spirited "This is an amazing picture, so inspiring" and all that, and I'm like "Ooh, what did photographer used to achieve that effect?.. I have no soul. :| "
