Purpose: Show your innerself and maybe get questioned your type trough what you have written.
This is pretty much a pre-post idea, before I move on to answering the "whats your type" questionare.

Thoughts from first half of my day: (sorry for the unorganized amount of text)

I played in a soccer tournament earlier today. It was quite ok organized (my school did the event, so I knew them, though had its flaws) A semi serious "World Cup" where every team represent a country. It was 5vs5 and I was the goalkeeper for my team and my friends. We played on 2 fields (cross position, 1/4 of a full soccer field) with 18 minutes matches against each team. We represented Kongo (randomly selected) We were 10 teams, playing on artifical turf. (As I'm writing this, I've questioned myself if spelling is correct and if my english is good. Therefore I'm probably spending longer time writing this post) The turf made it so much easier to get small wounds on my body when I threw myself after the ball or did any kind of tackle. Happily I chose to wear more clothes rather than too little, so that protected me. I had also brought some extra clothing incase of bad weather. Luckly the day was sunny. As I was invited to play with the team, I was unsure of my goalkeeping skills and my physical fitness. The response was very good, and It kinda bothered a little that so many thought I was playing so well, I rather noticed those mistakes I did. Though I was happy that I could be of assistance, since I don't think I was upto pair with the rest of my team. (I havent played serious soccer much the last 10 years) It was nice that my friends saw a side that they did not know of me. I acted reserved during breaks, nodding and being friendly with everyone. I met a female friend I hadnt talked with for a while. I didn't exactly what to converse about, but it was nice and a bit awkward since I'm not the most sociable person. I think my overview of the games were good, and I quickly recognize which players on the other team were good, and I could respond accordingly. The teams were dressed in whatever clothes people brought with them, so atleast one team got colory shirts they had to wear. One game, the judge had white as some of my own team, that made me lose focus, and it was quite out of placer. The information should have been clearer before each match. Since we had limited place, teams had to wait times to play, and sometimes play 2 matches after one another. I didnt do the math, but that could have been avoided imo with so much time. My teammate was a referee in a couple of games when we werent playing, might not have been right choise (judging our next opponents), but I think he did such a great job, and was in charge as a referee compared to some of the organisers referees that were doubting their decisions and was sometimes affected by the players & the crowd. I remember telling my teammates to not go so hard with tackles as some of them did, wasnt very nice, luckly no one got hurt. During the event, there was a small shop you could buy soda, cakes and fruit. I was happy they had fruit, I could eat without worry and it was delicous. I regret not bringing sandwiches from home. I totally forgot. Though at last I also bought a Pepsi Max, which I could have avoided (not the healthiest of drinks) The finale was a true finale. 4-4 with the best teams who deserved to advance, overtime and penalty kicks. The winning teams keeper did an outstanding job and gave them the victory. The winning team went crazy, was a blast to see them having such a good time. Organizers had real throphy and medals even for the 3rd place (us). Was great day. Right now I'm suposed to work hard and study for my exams that is on Wednesday but this was suposed to be a break (which I have way to many of) and spend to much time surfing on forums. I'm not working as hard as I should have.
Btw I'm more unsure about 9w1/1w9.
Lets go

1.Type/Response on thread
2.Share (doesnt have to be as long as mine)

I really like this idea!

Today I had my second performance as Britt Craig in the musical Parade (music and lyrics by Jason Robert Brown [13, The Last 5 Years] and book by Albert Uhry [Driving Miss Daisy]) and I thought I did really, really poorly. Last night was opening night and it was incredible, the audience loved the show, and the response was great. People were crying at the right times, laughing at the right times, it was perfect. Then tonight I just felt...off. I knew I wasn't giving it my all and I just kept trying to do better. My character is supposed to be drunk during his first song, and after a less than stunning performance of Act 1, the director comes backstage and gives a whole schpeel about how awful the first half of Act 1 was, and how if he hadn't been in the middle of a row he would have walked out of the theatre because it was so bad. Both of my songs are in the first half of Act 1. He told me I was being too drunk. Is there even such a thing as too drunk?! I'm sorry I'm giving it my all out there, while other people are laughing and talking out of character on stage! Geeze. Thanks for confirming my idea that I did horribly, even though I got many compliments from the cast and audience. Not a happy day.

Just woke up around 10:30, and currently browsing these forums. I'll be getting off my arse soon and making breakfast for my sweetie. At least I hope so...Sir Critique a Lot likes to vanish when there isn't any negativity around, and he's pretty much responsible for any motivation I have.

Then I need to do the dishes, tidy the house up, and hopefully work some more on my writing project. I'll save the writing project for last cause it's fun...yay for rewards lol

Type 9?

Today, I had to go to my stepson's etiquette graduation class. It was a formal tea party. He is in first grade and has Asperger's so I was pretty nervous. He's been at this school for a year and other parents still give him strange looks which breaks my heart. He gave me a big hug and lead me to our table. He promptly forgot everything he learned and started complaining about the food he ate while eating with his mouth full and wiping his hands on his pants. Lol. I was relieved when one of his classmates started drinking punch and spilled it all over his own shirt. The principal's wife came and say down at our table. So then I felt we should show her how we have practiced small-talk. My son mentioned he liked one of the sandwiches earlier, so I said "son's name loved the cream cheese and cucumber sandwiches!". She was thrilled and said she made then herself which I had no idea. Then my son says "no not those sandwiches those were gross! I liked the other ones". She looked a little peeved. After that I wanted to get the hell out of there. The funny thing is my son has no idea that the things he says are embarrassing and when I explain to him why he doesn't care. I'm the one who gets embarrassed. My poor son who has the sweetest heart but can't express it in a conventional way.

I guess my signature gives it away lol...

Close. I'm a 2w1. :)

I would have guessed you to be either a 2 or a 6, and yes your signature confirmed it. Didn't see the 5 wing coming though!

Ohh, I hear you on your son. My sweetie has Asperger's, and it can be difficult to handle at times, her behavior is just arrgh and drives my One side batty, especially when it happens in public.

That being said though, I know she's a sweet and loving partner, and so I easily forgive and love her. Her mother also said her Asperger's was much more pronounced when she was little. Maybe it'll be the same for your stepson, and his symptoms will mellow down a bit when he grows older.

Mm, cream cheese and cucumbers. That actually sounds yummy. xD

haha I'm laughing with you guys, because I mostly recognize my own "Mr Critique a Lot". so what do you enjoy about your critique partners/freinds?
@MelanieM Thanks for sharing. Your son seems sweet. I was thinking you as a 2 or 3, but a 6 makes sense as well. :)

Well, Sir Critique a Lot drives me nuts, but I do appreciate it when he reminds me of the stuff I need to get done, and things that are important. Othewise I won't, because I'm rather slapdash and unorganized, haha. He's also the one who helps keep me remembering my morals when crap goes down. :)

Just wish he'd stay away from my writing. I can't ignore even the slightest spelling error, or a crappy looking sentence cause he sticks on my butt like a cockleburr. Wish he'd save it for AFTER I'm done writing something!

How about yours? :)

Argh, new neighbors decided to recruit me to help them move into the apartment near by. I can't leave old people who look like they're capable of having a heart attack at any moment alone with heavy furniture, so I helped them with some furniture during my brothers monthly limited visit. I should have confirmed how much trouble we were in for before trying to help at all. They got themselves into the mess and they should have got themselves out but by intelligent means. I resent feeling like people simply rely on me being prepared and capable instead of being able to complete their responsibilities on their own.

I did a good deed, but maybe my attitude throughout the process will teach them to think ahead. Shaking down old people who are in a bind for money is not something do, but penalizing them by some means felt necessary.

On the bright side, I love living next to old people after putting up with unwed couples and their children for years, maybe for that reason alone it was worth it.

You sound like my mom who's a 1. I did cheat a little. I noticed your sig...you should figure out your tri type :)
I would give another story but I'm being a lazy ass and stalking personality cafe, while my husband is being productive as usual.

It is 126 (secondary types not ordered), but I don't believe the theory is valid.

Here is my 2nd experience of a day:
I was taking my exam the other day, making sure I brought everything, arriving early though reading trough my notes (because I had to get all the info I could, cause I was underprepared for this test) Anyway, people chat and some come late then the guy who has exam-cordinator enters, reads the rules and the exam is under way. I have my food and drinks on my table, I'm constantly concerned about making to much noise with my pepsi max that is making a fizzing noise constantly. When the test starts I look at what questions, and I prepare and then slowly dream into the woods just outside, then come back, write some notes, then dream away, looking at everybody else writing like crazy. "whats the hurry?" I'm thinking. "We got 4 hours" I drink too much pepsi max, and after 1 hour, I have to go to the bathroom. A watchman escorts me and I get that feeling entering the bathroom, like you get with cops, that you done something wrong or is about to cheat, though I have no intention to do so. The watchman stays outside, and I'm thinking: "If I really wanted to cheat, this would be so easy to hide some answers in my pants, they really should make these rules better". Once back, I dream away into the forest outside, and sit pinch myself again to get going. I constantly wish I could write on a computer because all of my horrible mistakes in spelling, and I would have been able to make it so much better. I get hungry, and start eating my crispbread and worry once again: "am I making to much noise chewing this and disturbing the others?" while someone else makes noise, I think: "shh! you could try to think about us others here and keep it down". My eyes wander, and it meets the older lady sitting there as a test observer, It then wanders again to look at the papers in front and on the sides in an blink and then again back to the old lady sitting watching. Again I think "Did I break the rules?". After a lot of writing, I finish the test with probably could have spent half the time if it werent for the dreaming and chilling. I also think: "I could have written this so much better, but right now I just dont bother, takes to much time, and I just want to get it ower with." and I painfully deliver a paper, that I dont think was good enough. I then walk out as a relieved man, 1 out of 2 exams done. I then go on opening my text book and checking if my answers were correct.

Anyways, would you guys agree I sound a lot more like a 9 in these thoughts than the other i shared in the OP where I would say I sounded more clearly like a 1?
