Hi! This is my first post and I've been lurking for a bit. Came across Socionics, a personality classification I've never come across. I read up a bit... and it seems to be much more detailed and complex than the others. I did three quizzes and got three different answers, so I'm really confused.

I did my best in answering these questions from the sticky thread and I hope I can get a better understanding of myself.

I thank everyone in advance.

Personal concepts
1. What is beauty? What is love?
Beauty is something that takes your breath away, even if just a little. That something that makes you want to slow down in this fast-paced world and take a longer look.
Love is when you want something good for another person, and that's why there are many forms of love.

2. What are your most important values?
Never stop growing. Seek the truth.

3. Do you have any sort of spiritual/religious beliefs, and why do you hold (or don't) those beliefs in the first place?
In reality, I am against religions, because they do not make sense, and unnecessary, since to a large extent if you treat others the way you want to be treated, we don't need anyone to tell us to be kind. But I LOVE the idea of higher beings and Gods. It's almost like I want to believe in them, but I do not. That's why I like the concept of Gods in stories.

4. Opinion on war and militaries? What is power to you?
I hate anything that is regimental, and takes away your choice and will as a human being. I cannot think of a better example than the military as the worst offender in this aspect. I have been in a conscription army before and I hated how everything is done there. I'm not that noble and have not thought nor spoke up any opinions on war, but I sure as hell do not want to fight in a war or be involved in one.

Power is the ability to make things go your way. Do note that it does not necessarily points to violence.

5. What have you had long conversations about? What are your interests? Why?
People, psychology, people's motivations, why they think they way they do. Finding out people's passions and what makes them tick, including myself. These are the things that made me talk endlessly for hours. Also, philosophical things like do people have their destiny, their purpose on life, what is the purpose of life, and the likes.

I like stories. Anything that tells me a story, the medium is not so important but I love book-storytelling the most. Instrumental, epic, and classical music. Poetry. Appreciating (cause I can't draw) arts, especially love paintings, i.e. Renaissance era. Dragons and dinosaurs. I love dragons and dinosaurs. I want to ride a dragon and travel the world.

6. Interested in health/medicine as a conversation topic? Are you focused on your body?
Yes, a little on body health and what's good for our bodies etc, but not too much. I prefer spiritual health topics. I don't take medicine even when I'm sick, and I believe food is our medicine.

No, I am seriously lacking in the physical health. I don't exercise, but healthy otherwise. Average lean build. Done some meditating but I always fall asleep.

7. What do you think of daily chores?
What they are. Chores.
"A clean house is a sign of wasted life."

That said, I understand the importance of hygiene (not necessarily tidiness). So I clean my room like... once in 1-2 months.
8. Books or films you liked? Recently read/watched or otherwise. Examples welcome.
Books by Neil Gaiman are a serious joy to read. His writing is so fluid, and his storytelling so enchanting. I feel like a storyteller is reading a story to me. The Book Thief was another exceptional read that left a very deep impression on me. Every sentence was music. The words do not exactly rhyme, not like in poetry, but boy, how the words sound and resonate. Beautiful, melodious writing. The style of writing was refreshing, with Death, the grim reaper himself, telling you the story. Oh!

I love films like How To Train Your Dragon and Big Hero 6. Adventures, I guess!

9. What has made you cry? What has made you smile? Why?
Touching stories make me cry. But only when I am alone. Stories of sacrifices, death, nobility of parents and watching people achieving their dreams after a long struggle, and people who never give up. Oh, and when I see animals in farmhouses, getting readied to be slaughtered.

Smile... Kids. Children make me smile.

10. Where do you feel: at one with the environment/a sense of belonging?
I feel the best when I am alone. I feel at one with the environment at the sea, when it's not overcrowded anyway.

Evaluation & Behaviour
11. What have people seen as your weaknesses? What do you dislike about yourself?
People brings up my "hands being in my pockets" and fidgeting, not grounded on the floor a lot. They associate those with insecurities and low confidence. I'm not sure about that. I don't feel myself that way. I just don't like staying still.

Right now, I dislike how I have failed to achieve a lot of the things I said I will achieve.

12. What have people seen as your strengths? What do you like about yourself?
HONESTLY, I don't know what people see as my strengths. I don't even get a lot of interactions with other homo sapiens nowadays.

I admire myself as a person who loves to learn and grow. I gotta say my perseverance is pretty strong too; I pick up whatever skills I need to accomplish what I need to. Another thing is, I am very good at picking up subtle emotions by people. I always notice changes in their moods.

13. In what areas of your life would you like help?
Perseverance, I know, even though I said it's one of my stronger points.

14. Ever feel stuck in a rut? If yes, describe the causes and your reaction to it.
Quite often enough. Causes are usually procrastinations and sometimes losing sight of my goals. Reaction? I just keep thinking and thinking and thinking about it, analyzing why I feel the way I do. Google if I can't figure it out. Talk to friends, used to anyway, but I realize they don't provide insights so I stopped.

People & Interactions
15. What qualities do you most like and dislike in other people? What types do you get along with?
Like: Discipline, focused, perseverance, compassion, kindness.
Dislike: Rude, impatience, ill-temper, tardiness, lack of goals, laziness.

Get along with? I think I get along okay with most people. The problem is finding someone who I can really talk to.

16. How do you feel about romance/sex? What qualities do you want in a partner?
Right now, romance is a waste of time. I don't have enough resources right now to invest in a relationship, that honestly, is more volatile than the stock market. Myself included, people wants more to be loved, and they don't know how to love another person.

My partner will, ideally, be involved in some forms of arts and self-expressions. Piano, writing, and painting comes to mind, but it doesn't HAVE to be one of these. Understanding, supportive, and kind/compassionate and is a vegetarian/vegan.

17. If you were to raise a child, what would be your main concerns, what measures would you take, and why?
I wouldn't place so much concern on his/her academic grades, in fact, they don't have to go to colleges/universities if they don't want to. Just basic understanding of languages and math is enough, and then they can learn whatever they want. More of the open-structure learning kind of parenting. Honestly though, I haven't thought much about parenting so I can't answer beyond this.

18. A friend makes a claim that clashes with your current beliefs. What is your inward and outward reaction?
I will challenge the friend's claims and understand why he thinks that way. I'll find out what is the basis and if he has a sound reasoning. This challenge is meant to improve both our beliefs and thought processes and open our minds, so it's not hostile.

19. Describe your relationship to society. How do you see people as a whole? What do you consider a prevalent social problem? Name one.
A hermit, basically. Don't really like society. Too much commercialism, and everyone has agendas. Of course, that is unavoidable, I have agendas too. I think most people are happy to be lied to. They do not seek the truth and choose to be blind to glaring facts. Like eating meat. Kill a dog and all the "animal-lovers" condemn you. But kill a billion cows and you're part of the family!

20. How do you choose your friends and how do you behave around them?
How deep our conversations can go. The further we can penetrate, the higher they go up in my list. I behave differently, accordingly. Social chameleon, if you will.

21. How do you behave around strangers?
I observe them. I love people watching. I look at their faces, their dressings, their subtle facial expressions and guess what they're doing. Sometimes I come across interesting individuals and I write a story in my head for them.
