I used this questionnaire: https://personalitycafe.com/whats-my-...tionnaire.html Thank you for it, Spades.
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.
OCD. Hypochondria. Prozac. Female. 20.
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.
https://www.flickr.com/photos/applic...ore-2015-01-21 Narrow space. Uncomfortable to walk. But I like it. I like cities, and restaurants, and stores, and architecture and shit.
2. You are with a group of people in a car, heading to a different town to see your favourite 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?
"What if we die in here?! Holy shit. There could be murderers here. There could be rapists. What if we get raped? What if someone suggests some of us go looking for help and others wait? I bet I'll be the first one to die. I can't be alone and unprotected. Don't. Leave. Me. Alone. I gotta call mom." I try not to demonstrate fear in order not to seem like a big baby. Then I actually try to calm myself (internally).
3. You somehow make it to the concert. The driver wants to go to the afterparty 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 feel nervous about the idea of going to a *party*. I don't party. I'm probably tired but say yes anyway. I'll stop being tired when I get there. If I'm bored, I can always do something on my phone. I probably have a book with me just in case. I have some of my favorite shows on my tablet. I don't like shitting on people's dreams, so I go. But I hope to God they actually don't drink, and if they do, I get a cab to go back home.
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?
Thinking they're stupid. Anger. Then I think, "Oh, well, whatever. People will always have different opinions." Maybe I calmly say I disagree. Maybe I don't say anything. A car is not a place to have arguments. The driver needs to be calm and focus on driving. What if we crash?
5. What would you do if you actually saw/experienced something that clashes with your previous beliefs, experiences, and habits?
Probably nothing. Complain to myself or to a friend. There's not much I can do anyway.
6. What are some of your most important values? How did you come about determining them? How can they change?
Honesty. And that means not playing mind games. Because that's fucking exhausting and wastes everyone's time. I can't be around people who don't find the same to be true.
Respecting individuality. Let people be themselves. Because being your own person is more important than trying to comform to societal expectations. And because who cares?
I have some other basic values like, "Don't be a prejudiced piece of shit." If you say something racist, sexist or homophobic I probably don't wanna be around you 'cause you're a mess. I mean, I defend your right to say all those things, but we can't be friends.
I don't have that many values, but they can change at any time. Because I'm always thinking, rethinking and changing. Change is inevitable and it's good.
7. a) What about your personality most distinguishes you from everyone else?
I think a lot. I'm concerned with abstract things more than most people. I'm not really connected to the real world the way most people are. I like talking about ideas too much. Others don't seem to like that as much. And I also tend to be quiet/not like noise and crowds and shit, but that's not so uncommon in my experience.
b) If you could change one thing about you personality, what would it be? Why?
I'd stop being lazy and become an active person. I'd use all the time that I have to do the things I wanna do. I'd be more persistent and determined. And I'd become less... negative, less worried, less obsessive. Maybe even less sad.
8. How do you treat hunches or gut feelings? In what situations are they most often triggered?
I don't know. How do you know if you have hunches? I mean, I have ideas. I get certain impressions. And I treat all of them with doubt. "Maybe." Though sometimes, when an idea makes a lot of sense, I treat it with a sort of almost-certainty. "Probably."
9. a) What activities energize you most?
Listening to music. Playing music. Walking. Reading. Learning. Sleeping. Watching TV series. A nice, long car ride (with music). Using an eliptical trainer (with music). Intimate social interactions. (By intimate I don't mean romantic, I just mean... close.)
b) What activities drain you most? Why?
Watching movies (too fucking long and slow). Pointless, loud social interactions ('cause what's the point????).
10. What do you repress about your outward behavior or internal thought process when around others? Why?
I repress sitting/standing comfortably. I repress smiles and laughs (shyness, pff). I repress jokey behavior when I don't think it's appropriate. I repress expressing my thoughts 'cause I don't think anyone cares. I repress anger and embarrassment when I feel it. Feelings. And when I think someone is attractive, I repress it as well.
