I've inquired about what type I am on here before, but I felt as though my last post was too long/ compact for most to have the attention spans to read through, so I've decided to give one of these popular questionnaires a stab so as to garner more discussion on the subject. Questionnaire is as follows:
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.
Yes. Pervasive loneliness/ unemployment and some type of bizarre self- diagnosed anxiety/ obsessional disorder.
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.
No. Too complicated.
2. You are with a group of people in a car, heading to a different town to see your favorite 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?
Initial thoughts: I am happy to have had something out of the ordinary happen. I see it as an unexpected adventure full of potential twists and turns, not to mention a deterrent to the boredom and frustration of attending a noisy concert. Outward reactions: Laughter, excitement, giddiness.
3. You somehow make it to the concert. The driver wants to go to the after party 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 would feel very nervous about the party, unless it was a weed friendly party full of familiar faces. Otherwise, I'd take every measure i could to avoid it.
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?
Inward reaction: Frustration, strong desire to argue against said claim, possibly mild depression. Outward expression: Say nothing, squint eyes and stare intensely out the window.
5. What would you do if you actually saw/experienced something that clashes with your previous beliefs, experiences, and habits?
Obsess over it for months and plot methods to correct its perpetrators.
6. What are some of your most important values? How did you come about determining them? How can they change?
I strongly value population control. I believe the world has become too crowded for comfort. I determined this by becoming baffled at how Western medicine manages to keep so many millions of people as healthy as they are. I also value the destruction of popular social media sites such as Facebook, Twitter, etc., for they have turned a generation into trivial clones and/ or rebels against corrupt governments in the Mideast that congest my television screen when I could be watching reports of local issues that might ACTUALLY effect my life in some way other than being disgusted by the news media turning a serious international crisis into a matter of entertainment. These values cannot change. They are too noble to change.
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) Nothing that wouldn't make me sound like a cocky, or, inversely, self loathing asshole. B) I would change how bad I am with money. In the words of James of the notorious Team Rocket, "I wanna get rich and rule the world!"
8. How do you treat hunches or gut feelings? In what situations are they most often triggered?
I treat them with great caution. I may not be as wise as I think. They are most often triggered in situations regarding religion/ spirituality. My gut tells me that there's no way consciousness can just vanish into thin air upon death (what's the point of experiencing love, hope, longing, etc. if its fate is going to rest ultimately in the hands of cold physical laws, right?), but all serious evidence suggest otherwise. I trust the science so as not to be insane.
9. a) What activities energize you most? b) What activities drain you most? Why?
A) I could be super taboo and say smoking a shitton of some loud kush, but I wont. Watching good films energizes me. Crime thrillers or anything starring Puerto Rican acting god Benicio del Toro are my favorites. B) Nothing really drains me except maybe things I've already mentioned. I have a high tolerance for boredom.
10. What do you repress about your outward behavior or internal thought process when around others? Why?
I don't really understand the question. I guess I repress my rather critical nature around others. I'm quite cheerful and accommodating in person, but this could be from general shyness, which is something I must work on, for it makes me feel like a spineless doormat. I feel comfortable openly and honestly expressing myself through writing, however
