I am a 20 year old female. I've been diagnosed with social anxiety, depression and trauma-related disorder. I am currently taking medication, which allows me to be more myself and helps with treating symptoms. I am also in therapy. I would describe my current state of mind as relatively happy and normal.
1. Can't link the picture because of low post count. It shows a big mountain covered with snow and a small, wooden house below it.
I like how the mountain looks like a giant wave, about to flood the little house. Depending on how I choose to look at the picture it gives me two very different feelings: calmness when I see a mountain and fear when I imagine that it's a wave. Overall the photograph has a kind of dualistic nature to it, which I really like.
2. My initial thoughts are: "oh no, we might not get there in time" and "I hope someone can fix the car". I would suggest we think about all options we have, see if anyone has a good idea and do my best to help. I would also try to make sure that we are all getting along and helping each other instead of being angry or fighting. I'd also feel glad that I am not alone in this situation.
3. I would probably go to the after party, mostly to have a drink and talk to people. I might end up making a new friend. I would also make sure that the driver really isn't drinking. If the atmosphere was bad or something weird was happening I'd ask a friend for support.
4. If my friend said something that very strongly contradicted my core values I would probably feel internally shocked and upset. I'd try to discuss our disagreements and to understand the point of view of my friend. It could change the way I see that person. If it was something less significant I would probably just accept our differences and move on.
5. If I experienced something that clashed with my values and experiences I would attempt to try and understand it and reevaluate it in my mind with as little bias as I can. I fully realize that my experiences are limited, and that sometimes I need to rethink some things to have a better understanding of the world and myself.
6. I can't really list my values. I think it's important to be open minded and respectful towards other people. I don't really care about tradition or things that other people tell me I should value, especially if it doesn't make sense to me. I don't think my values can really change since I don't have many specific ones in the first place. The choice to respect and care about other people is something I've naturally felt since I can remember, not a value I picked on purpose.
7. a) being okay with saying personal, awkward things, being non judgemental towards others and letting them be themselves around me. Also seeing things from different perspectives.
b) I would like to be more self disciplined and productive, I tend to put things off until the last moment which can be stressful.
8. Gut feelings are important to me, I get them around other people a lot. When I sense a "bad vibe" from someone I treat it seriously, because my hunches are usually right. I can notice things in people's behavior that others don't seem to pay much attention to.
9. a) I get energized by mental stimulation, learning and understanding things, doing research. I am also energized by art and my emotional reactions to it.
b) anything that has to do with physical stuff, especially going somewhere new and having to figure out how to get there. I am terrible at understanding my surroundings.
10. I sometimes struggle with expressing affection out of fear of being somehow innapropiate or making myself vulnerable. I'm afraid of being judged or mistunderstood by other people. I am also afraid as being seem as ignorant or not smart enough.
I will appreciate any impression or thought.
