1. What do you think your life is about? What drives you in life? This can be something like a goal or a purpose, or anything else that comes to mind.
My life is about enjoyment. But not party, sex or extreme sports (etc.), but by doing what I want. I'm driven by success. I want to be successful, I want to have enough money to get anything I want to be able to live as comfortable as it's possible. My ultimate at-the-moment-realistic goal is to own a company.
2. What were you like as a kid?
Very quiet, but when I was more comfortable (family for example), I did faces and other acting-like stuff, sometimes resembling someone I've seen in a fun kind of way. I also always had something to say when I was asked a question. Often I was figuring stuff out by myself, trying to find something interesting to do to not be as bored.
3. Describe your relationship with your parents. Does anything stand out about the way you interacted?Honesty, openness, loyalty. It's really hard for me to name my values - I have more of them - I just can't think of them. In addition - I do not believe in white lies. Feel free to ask with examples about this one, because I just can't think of what to write, but I feel like there's a lot I could write about this subject.
I'm very secretive with them and I don't trust or respect them. Nor do they me.
4. What values are important to you? What do you hope to avoid doing or being?
5. Aside from phobias, are there any fears that characterized your childhood? Have they continued into the present day, or not, and if not, how have you dealt with them?, but I don't avoid doing things that would or may result in it since I'm outta middle-school. I simply realized that my way of thinking and values are different, and it doesn't mean that I'm a freak or something like that. Not to mention eventually I realized that my intelligence is higher than average (actually a real IQ test says it's genius level), but later I realized that IQ doesn't mean as much as I thought it does in high-school.
I feared of being laughed at because it was unpleasant. I was very quiet, and an ENTJ doesn't really get along too well with Si and Fe, nobody asked "why" in our class, and so didn't I. I still don't like it (obviously)
6. a.) How do you see yourself?
b.) How do you want others to see you?
c.) What do you dislike the most in other people?
a) As overly-honest, sometimes overly-open and taking serious relationships too far (serious means serious, no one-night stands, no "it may work" flings) kinda guy. In fact, I'm often very serious in conversations, I use "bigger" words even though I'm not trying to, I talk in a very "professional" manner, even with people who are close to me. Although the closer you are, the more relaxed I am, which means the more likely I'm to share my weird thoughts. So yea, I'm that weird uptight guy that people generally find interesting and wanna talk or even get a crush on (no, I'm not flirty at all, I hate flirt), or I'm the guy that annoys the Si-oriented authority figures by asking "why" after being told to do something. Optimistic (ambitious) when it comes to goals. Risk-taker, even though I see it as a 99% success and I see "them" as pessimistic. Capable of accomplishing anything. As someone who follows what he wants, disregarding advice or sometimes even "it MAY turn out good," I need really good reasons to do something that I do not enjoy.
b) Professional, focused, ambitious, smart, capable, trustworthy, honest, someone you'd want to spend time with and enjoy it, other things I didn't think of at the moment.
c) Drama, secretiveness, dishonesty, untrustworthiness, belief that they are right when they aren't, arrogance when it's not due, lies, shallowness (if I've to be close to the person for whatever reason), strong and illogical beliefs, too strong optimism/pessimism, other things I didn't think of at the moment. I also don't get along with Si/Fe-doms.
7. Which habit do you most automatically act on? Rank the following habits from most to least automatic, on a scale of 1 (most) to 3 (least).
a.) Work for personal gain with more concern for self than for others.
b.) Strive for a sense of tranquility in yourself and the world around you
c.) Decide what is right for the betterment of something or someone else.
8. Where does the wandering mind take you? What provokes this?
Provokes: nothing to do (perfect conditions - would never happen - I'd always be busy with something), boring situations like repetitive tasks, physical workout of any kind. Conversations with open-minded people with whom I feel comfortable with - tangents - but not to the point where the conversation changes. It takes me to thinking about past things if there's something important in the future according to them (had a conversation with a person, gonna have another conversation with him tomorrow, so I'd be getting ready in a way). Projects I work on. My past and what I can do in the future. Sometimes what I'd like to happen but I know won't - conversations with people take place in my mind - but I don't go out much with people I feel comfortable with, so it may be a weird alternative. Planning. What I'd like and/or will do.
What makes you feel your best? What makes you feel your worst?
Best: working on a project which I enjoy (may be as simple as talking to people to understand them better, different types, etc.), succeeding. Worst: having nothing to do, failing, not being able to do what I wanna do.
Let's talk about emotions. Explain what might make you feel the following, how they feel to you or how you react to the emotion:
a) Things that are mentioned in "I don't like people," or my failures caused by someone else. Though 98% of the time I get annoyed, not angry. I can do the following, depending on the situation: 1) keep to myself and change my opinion about those people, 2) be anal, 3) express my (opposite) opinion and expect an answer, 4) this one usually happens with really dumb and persistent folk: say that the conversation is counter-productive and discontinue the conversation.
b) When I fail. I act as if nothing happened and correct the mistake, or if it caused harm to someone else, I may apologize briefly but honestly and fix it.
c) Situations about which I don't have much details, but just before them, when I walk into it, in 30-60s (usually) I'm not anxious anymore. New people, same situation. In short, things that I'm inconfident about, mostly because I don't have enough information or skill.
Describe how you respond to the following:
b.) negative unexpected change
a) I try to solve the problem. If it's not possible to solve it and I have no interesting activities, I feel sad and either don't care about much or feel annoyed. I may be very melancholic and I'm probably constantly scanning my environment for something to do, and as soon as there is something I'd really enjoy, I take up the activity, which is just natural me - doing things I enjoy.
b) I get annoyed or angry (depending on the impact) and I do the best with the situation I have.
c) I try to solve it by finding the best solution to it (that doesn't affect me negatively).
a.) What kind of role are you naturally inclined to take in a group? Why?
b.) If put in power, how do you behave? Why?
c.) Do you tend to struggle with others who have authority over you? Why?
a) If I care about what the group is doing, I take charge; because most of the time I'm able to reach the goal efficiently and in high quality. If not, I sit back and think or do something else, because I don't care and I'm not affected by the outcome, or I don't care how I'll be affected by it.
b) Same as when not in power. Because I don't have Si authoritarian ideology in me.
c) Yes, unless their ideas match mine. Because I wanna do what I want to do and I don't believe in "do because I told you to."
What do you see or notice in others that most people don't?
Uhm. Everything? I noticed that most people are very unobservant, and I tend to notice a lot.
Comment on your relationship with trust.
Trust is important. Everywhere. If I cannot trust someone, I don't want to have anything to do with them. Of course the trust may be indirect, and most people are untrustworthy in my experience. So it takes a while to earn my trust. However people can trust me, even strangers. I've never told anybody's secret to anyone, and people generally trust me a lot for no apparently reason.
15. Briefly: What religious and/or political beliefs do you have? Do you think they influenced your responses in this questionnaire?
No religion, political - my own ideas, I don't care what ideologies say. Obviously didn't influence them.
