I've been here for a few weeks, but I never really made it known... I always feel awkward showing up somewhere for the first time, whether it be in real life or anonymously on the Internet... kind of pathetic. :P
Well, let's see here... I'm 15 years old, and I'm a freshman in high school. I used to be a straight-A student, but this year my school started a new curriculum. Said curriculum involves putting students in a room, placing them in groups, giving them a project that involves selling things, and keeping teachers in the room just to make sure the students don't kill each other. There is little to no guidance.
I haven't played a whole lot of games or watched a whole lot of series or read a large number of good books, but I am a complete nerd concerning my favorite entertainment. Let's see if I can list my favorite:
Legend of Zelda, Harvest Moon, Sly Cooper trilogy, Ace Attorney, Pokemon, Silent Hill(even though I have yet to actually play any of the Silent Hill games myself); I really want to play Metal Gear Solid... but I don't have a compatible console.
Higurashi no Naku Koro Ni (just finished the first season; planning on starting the second, Higurashi no Naku Koro Ni Kai later today), Fullmetal Alchemist (manga only)
I quite like the Redwall series by Brian Jacques, but my favorite author (so far) is Stephen King<3... Even though I've only read
I'm not a huge movie person.
I also like to bake and, to a somewhat lesser extent, cook and draw. In fact, after I finish high school, I will most likely look into attending culinary school so I can be a pastry chef.
I am definitely an INFP, but, sometimes, when I take a test, I'm typed as an INTP. Like I said, I'm definitely an INFP, but I'm very in touch with the Thinking side as well.
I'm an Enneagram 9. I don't entirely understand with the Wing concept... I have a lot more in common with 4's and 5's than 8's or 1's. But, sticking to the book... I have no idea what my Wing is. xD
My instinctual subtype is sp/soc.
Unlike most INFPs, I, no offense, find religious and spiritual concepts interesting but ludicrous. I'm also not very nurturing... In fact, I get embarrassed just giving someone a compliment. I don't like to share my emotions at all, since I was so sensitive when I was a small child.
I tend to talk about myself because that's really all I know... I was so sheltered as a kid that I turned to my inner fantasies for entertainment. I was so intimidated by people when I was young and my family is so... opinionated, to keep this short, that I started to pretty much hate myself... I developed anorexia. I like myself now, my food anxiety is slowly getting better, and my body is back at a healthy weight, but I'm just now starting to get used to socializing and reality. I'm still horrible when it comes to my fear of upsetting/bothering people though... And I'm still terrified of things like crime and real life on my own... Dealing with unsavory people... things like that. I still kind of struggle with mild depression, as well.
...So yeah, like I said, I tend to talk about myself a lot. I tend to complain a lot online, since I don't like to bother my friends in person with my issues. I'd talk to my family, but, to be honest, they usually are the issue. I'm aware that I'm childish and selfish, and I don't like to be that way, but I'm only 15. I'm young, and I'm not the only stupid teenager out there. Besides, how else can one learn but through experience..?
Anyway, despite that previous paragraph, I'm typically somewhat cheerful. At least, I feel like I am. Funny thing is, I can feel like I'm in a good mood, but when someone I'm not too fond of says something, oftentimes my first impulse is to act like a grump... while I still feel somewhat cheerful. I guess I'm just not very in touch with my feelings. I'm sensitive, but I'm not always aware of what I'm feeling. I tend to not realize I'm in a bad mood until I start crying or acting grumpy. Usually at that point I think something like, "Well, I feel decent I suppose, but I must be sad because I'm crying."
The human mind is a weeeiird thing.
I joined this forum because, well, I was looking for a nice forum to join. I find things like psychology and personality typing interesting, as well.
Usually I come across as a loooot more hyper than I think I am now. I also tend to use a lot more smileys. My favorite smileys are xD and o3o.
-I am a vegetarian.
-From the time I was born to the time I was 8 years old, I went on about 80 rounds of antibiotics.
-I have a dog, Buttercup, and a guinea pig, Cookie. I have owned Betta fish in the past.
-My favorite foods/drinks are dark chocolate, peanut butter, beans, carrots, coffee, bread, cheesecake, brownies, and oatmeal raisin cookies... Carbs are delicious. Coincidentally, my favorite fruits are commonly used as an innuendo. I love melons and bananas... I really like to eat nuts, too. My friends tease me a lot about that. :P
-I seem to have some kind of muscular or skeletal issue, as I have almost no arches in either of my feet, and I have trouble getting my joints to move the way I want them to, especially in my fingers. You should watch me write; I tend to fling my pencil across the room when I try to turn it around to use the eraser.
-I also have digestive issues thanks to those antibiotics I've had.
-I'm a dog person.
Well, I think I've taken up enough space. Hello, PersonalityCafe. :)
