I saw this questionnaire, thanks to @TheCrimsonKing and @Pastelle (Thanks again guys!)

Thought I'd give it a go and post my own answers and see if you guys can type me :p based on these answers!

Thanks guys!

1. During your youth (7'ish to 18), What did you focus on the most? What activities did you like and why? What aspect of life was lax in attention? [Also think about the times where you got in trouble, that were within your control].


I focussed a lot on music and drama. I loved drama and studied performing arts at college, it was the first thing I felt truly good at. I’ve always loved music, loved listening to it and got my first guitar when I was about nine, and I often imagined myself being a Rockstar and would listen to my music late at night in my headphones lip-syncing to my favourite songs and imagining I was on stage running around and singing in front of thousands of people. I hated school, I got severely bullied but I hated it anyway because it bored the hell out of me. I didn’t understand a lot of the subjects, the only subjects I did well in were ones where I could express myself i.e Drama, English and Religious Studies – because that was mainly about personal opinions!

2. You're in you senior year of high school (or whatever equivalent) and you are looking back over the last couple of years. What was your favorite aspect of the schooling experience and why? Favorite subject and why? Criticisms?

My favourite part of my schooling was performing, as I said above. The equivalent to senior year for me was my second year of college (so I was 18), I got the lead role in my favourite musical and I loved every minute of it. Although I loved what I did, I often found myself feeling inadequate and not as good as other people and would often have a lot of doubt in my abilities and seek out praise from others :S

3. A couple of friends call and invite you out to a restaurant. While there, you all are pleasantly conversing and one of your friends makes a light comment that irked you. What are you're thoughts and how do you respond?

Thoughts: Well you’re wrong lol
Response: ‘’Yeah I see what you mean.’’ I H A T E C O N F L I C T.

4. Your schooling is done and it's time to strike out into the world!! What sort of career do you want to go into and why?[Post high school/college]

I’ve thought about this a lot. For the longest time I wanted to be an actor, but then I realised I didn’t care ENOUGH about it, I just cared about being in the spotlight and having everyone praise the hell out of me and tell me how good I was even if I didn’t believe it. I think I’d love to be a musician because I really care about music and I like to think that my music could inspire others how music inspires me. I’d like to think of some 16-year-old girl in her bedroom, singing into her hairbrush and pretending she’s singing to thousands. Because I used to love doing it.


5. You get into an argument with a friend/family member/co-worker. They criticize a couple of your personality traits. What would most likely be the focus of their critique? What about people annoys you the most and why?

I don’t like it when people are patronising and rude for no apparent reason. I don’t like people who bully others. I don’t like people who are lazy about something I really want to do, and I don’t like people who criticize my beliefs and push theirs onto me?!

6. It's New Years! You and your friends are out and about after a party. Being drunk, one of your friends suggests to do something....'questionable' (Nothing serious. I.e, drugs, escort, etc.). What are your thoughts and how do you respond?

No… but I’d probably do it anyway because why not.

7. You find someone who strikes your fancy and there is potential for a budding relationship. What are your thoughts? Explain what traits made them attractive in the first place and what activities would help deepen the relationship?

Power, I tend to fall for people who I see as powerful. Confidence, I like someone who has a good sense of humour. I’d maybe go for a drink with them talk about a few things. I have an awful habit of wearing my heart on my sleeve though, and I’m very obvious when I like someone…which often scares them away.

8. A new art gallery opens up and your friend drags you along to the grand opening. Both of you walk the gallery, looking at all the paintings and sculptures. What about these works warrants the most attention from you as you peruse? What thoughts are most likely to come to mind? [See 'Starry Night' and 'The Thinker' as references].

I love looking at artworks of people. I also like minimalistic things so that would really catch my eye, I don’t really like clutter but I also like to look at art that is beautiful in the sense that it’s just pure expression.

9. You have been saving up and decide to buy a new house. After looking through all the available listings, you filter it down to a few choices. Did you have any deciding criteria prior to your search? What would be the make or break aspects when looking over your choices?[Note: You have enough money and all choices are adequately safe, decent neighborhood, no infestations, etc].

SOUND PROOFING. Big one for me, I want to be able to get on with what I’m doing without having to worry about neighbours. Also noisy neighbours annoy the crap out of me. But I like to listen to music loudly when I’m doing things, I much prefer listening through speakers than I do headphones, so that would be a HUGE priority for me.

Also I’d love a place with really modern and minimalistic décor. I like the look of black and white kitchens with beautiful floors and sparkly counters.
Oh and a really big bathroom.

10. Yep, you now have a kid (sex of your choosing)! Years pass and they are now 15 years old. You notice their personality traits are the complete opposite of how you were when at their age. Describe how they are. Describe the possible conflicts that would arise between both of you due to differing temperaments.

I have a daughter anyway lol but if she was the complete opposite to fifteen-year-old me she would:
She would probably get frustrated with me because I’m messy, but also because I’ll sometimes do random and silly things for no reason. lol
Hate the arts, and anything creative. She’d be extremely rational and in total control of her emotions. She’d think that passions were silly and a waste of time and she’d be cold, very sure of herself and not have trouble sleeping at night.

I'm going to say ISFP! I was initially going to say ESFP due to all that Se, but there was so much about "expression" and "passion" that I ruled higher Fi.

@Pastelle

ESFP? That's really interesting, I'd never consider myself an extravert! When I was a kid I was likely so, but I think that's because children are unfiltered, y'know? But ISFP definitely sounds more like me! Interesting how you can see that from the questions, it's incredible! Thanks for your feedback!!!!

ESFP again! It's funny I've always considered myself more of an introvert, having to step away and recharge but at the same time if I spend too much time alone I can spiral into a depressive state and when I'm out with people, in the moment I'm actually really enjoying it! Thanks for replying!!

One thing to keep in mind is that 'introverted' and 'extroverted' in MBTI don't really mean the same thing as they do elsewhere. E/I doesn't have anything to do with whether or not you like people, or where you get your energy from or anything like that. Those are all things that tests ask you because a person with an extroverted dominant function is more likely to be socially extroverted, but correlation is not always equal to causation.

I think your dominant function is Extroverted Sensing because you are very focused on concrete experiences, things that you enjoy doing, you seem very action/decision oriented and not implication oriented, and you are fairly expressive which is not a 'Se-trait' per se, but it is more likely in someone with Se as a dominant function vs. Fi as a dominant function. Fi is very internal and more private, you seem more like you wear your heart on your sleeve.
