    2am questionnaire!!

    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.

    Nothing I can think of! I'm 19 and female and my life is at it's usual comfortable level of weird and drama :) (life would be no fun without a whirlwind of affairs, strippers and midnight traipses round a pitch black forest to find some randomers lost dog right?)

    There were several thoughts, the first being 'it's cute!'. Secondly, how pretty pictures of snow are but how uncomfortably cold it is (winter walks always leave me so cold my face and lungs hurt with watery eyes and uncomfortable slightly sweaty hat hair and although it's initially pretty it just turns to a deathly brown icy sludge...It's safe to say I'm not a winter person!). Thirdly, my nana used to have a squirrel called Fizz that used to come to her back door and you could feed it peanuts. Fourth, squirrels are dumb sh*ts, I spent 10 minutes watching a squirrel dig up a courtyard trying to find it's nut the other week (you have to question why I spent 10 minutes of my life watching a squirrel) and weirdly how one of my lecturers was once talking about the symbiotic relationship between squirrels and oak trees and how squirrels eat the acorns which means they don't grow into oak trees so squirrels are bad :L Oh and finally, Scrat from ice age of course.


    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?


    I'd be pretty calm! It's not the end of the world. I don't know much about cars so I'd firstly see if anyone did so they could take a look at the car. I'd then work out what we know or don't know- why have we broken down? Where are we? Can we get phone signal? And act accordingly to the answers to those questions, sending out a pair of people to get signal and ring a breakdown company, use a map to work out roughly where we are (although having been lost in the middle of nowhere before there's generally not a maze of roads, it's typically a long road with fields or trees around so a breakdown company could find us quite easily- fingers crossed we won't have broken down in the middle of a shooting range this time!)


    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'd be slightly sceptical about the driver not drinking knowing my friends, so I'd suggest we first look into finding a travel lodge first and staying there over night but then I'd be down for the party and travelling back the next day! Even if the driver didn't drink they would surely be very tired after a concert and after party and it wouldn't be safe to drive a long distance after that.


    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?

    It wouldn't particularly bother me, people can believe what they want and as long as people don't try to force their views on people or hurt others then I'm not fussed! I may probe their logic behind their belief and try to get them to explain their belief. Despite being open to ideas I'd probably still think I was right inside but outwardly wouldn't clash with no good reason.


    5. What would you do if you actually saw/experienced something that clashes with your previous beliefs, experiences, and habits?


    Seeing is believing, as they say! Unless it's an illusion and you're not seeing the truth and just making assumptions. I'd question and analyse what I saw or experienced pretty intensely- not because I can't accept I'm wrong but just to ensure my experience was the truth.


    6. What are some of your most important values? How did you come about determining them? How can they change?

    Adventure, happiness, honesty, humour, friendship. Before doing something I always ask myself: could this make a good story to tell? Which often leads to a lot of weird, sometimes painful situations but I always look at things with a sense of humour. I'm great at helping my friends because I don't shy away from the difficult or weird and I'm good at understanding their feelings and offering a humorous outlook, a few different perspectives and some action routes. I'm pretty matter of fact about most things. If something happens it's: what happened? How has it made you feel? How can we fix this? I see life as very simple and believe that telling the truth is always best- it might be embarrassing or cause someone to be hurt short term but lies pretty much always come out. May as well admit to something, face the consequences and move on. Holding grudges is not something I can do!



    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) My creativity (both as a mindset and a skillset) and my memory and attention to detail. The memory thing is possibly distinguishing in a slightly creepy way. For example, last week whilst on a night out I saw a guy I'd met in my second week of uni (let's call him Jack) and instead of being like 'oh I vaguely recognise, have we met?' like a normal, non creepy person does, I went up this guy and said 'excuse me, are you 'Jack' in first year who studies adult nursing? We met on the second monday of the year downstairs eating curly fries, I was wearing a red skirt that wasn't mine!'...safe to say this guy ran away pretty quick oh dear :L But my memory is like that all the time.

    b) My overthinking! It drives me nuts! On the one hand I think, just accept a situation and move on. But then my brain thinks about things that have happened, are happening, could have happened, might happen, who said what to who and how things were interpreted and what if people lie and what's actually real and are things as they seem? I wish I could shut it up sometimes :L



    8. How do you treat hunches or gut feelings? In what situations are they most often triggered?

    I just accept them! Typically it's triggered around people that I sense might not be very nice or a strong feeling of 'NO' not to send texts I shouldn't!


    9. a) What activities energize you most? b) What activities drain you most? Why?

    a) Being active with other people! Group work, going on forest explorations, going on a night out, a crisis or drama of some kind! As my mum kindly puts it, I'm like a child that needs constant stimulation, always needs something happening.

    b) The worst thing I can think of is having to sit alone and be forced to learn a theory of something. On monday I had a lecture about the mathematics and theory of species population dispersal. Dullest. Thing. Ever. I very vividly remember the lecturers ant analogy though!



    10. What do you repress about your outward behavior or internal thought process when around others? Why?


    Not much really! I'm usually very open about everything I think and it's why I get on with so many people and can usually find a way to connect with them pretty quickly. Sometimes I might pretend not to know someone on a night out when I've never actually met them but somehow know exactly who they are and several things about them :L that's better than those I've met before and I remember everything about them and they only just remember my name

    You sound like a healthy ESTP. There was a couple of moments I was questioning Ne-Si, but I'd guess Se would fit better.

    Interesting perspective! Sounds like an extroverted perceiving function (Se/Ne), definitely leaning towards Se.

    This is where I started questioning if you were on the Ne-Si axis... Lots of experiences mentioned in a way that seems scattered almost. Still, they are all thought in a linear motion, and the connection between them is definite "Squirrel." Also, I am struck by the way that you describe the winter. You describe it in such a way that how it makes you feel is definite (sensory language); Sounds Se. Your tone of voice suggests Ti influence.

    Sounds Se-Ti. Still, I see a bit of Si... Could it be that you are filtering your Ti through your Se? Not sure.

    Very relaxed, go with the flow, Se.

    Ti-Fe axis. Fe is not your weakest function, however, you seem to have an understanding of human behavior and social tact, so I'd say ExTP, leaning strongly towards S.

    While you understand others at a good level, I still feel like it would be Ti-Fe (you remind me of my ESTP cousin actually in this respect).

    Blaring Se. Ti over Fe definitely.

    Both sound like strong Se (I'm trying not to repeat too much which is why I'm skipping over some stuff)

    Sounds like another point for Ti over Fe.

    I'd say ESTP. Let me know if you have any questions, hopefully I helped a little bit.

    @Krayfish

    Thankyou for your response!! I've been searching for my type for a while and I've been through a number of types- you picked up on the scattered way I can talk (well type, but I talk like that too) and that has caused me some confusion. I strongly agree with you over the Ti-Fe thing but with my perceiving functions I've always been a bit lost. You picked out the 'blaring' Se but I've never actually been able to differentiate very well between Si and Se to be honest. But back to the scattered talking, that's often lead to the conclusion of Ne being one of my functions as I often jump from idea to idea very quickly so it's always been a case of am I a 'sensor' or 'intuitive'. To me it seems logical and sequential for example, sat in my lab class the other day when we were gassing fruit flies (the joys) I started talking about Halloween. From the conversation we were having about opening a cocktail bar in spain (obviously) it seemed very random however the process was that the computer across the room was made by Hewlett and Packard, and in that episode of the big bang theory where Sheldon and Amy are trying to settle on a couples costume, Hewlett and Packard are one of the couples hence the Halloween thing. In terms of functions that makes confused as the random jump and connections suggests Ne, the observance and awareness suggests Se but the mental store of where I've seen that name before makes me think of Si. Perhaps I'm overthinking all of this :L If any combinations of functions were possible I'd probably say I used both extraverted percieving functions strongly but as that's not possible, how can I be sure? (Not disagreeing with 'healthy' ESTP (I've come up with ESFP before (along with ENFP and basically any code ending in P at some point, I had a dalliance with the J side but look at my writing, do J types really put parentheses within parentheses?!) because I'm pretty people focused but the Ti is also strong with this one ;) so being a thinker that's not completely scared of feelings and thinks human beings are stupid, as stereotypes often seem to suggest, makes sense!). Thankyou for your input!!

    No problem. I see your dilemma. I questioned if I was seeing Si or Se throughout your description, especially because of points one and two. What you just described also sounds a lot like Ne.... Between ESTP and ENTP, inferior Si would manifest in a way that would explain a thought process that is nonlinear but also would explain a lack of ability to notice the little details or remember details in such sensory detail. The Se in ESTP would be more along the lines of detail oriented, but more towards the environment than anything else.

    Still, I'l admit that I have difficulty successfully identifying Ne in written text like this, so ENTP still might be a possibility

    Would you be able to elaborate on what made you think ISFJ? :)

    ISTJ


    @KillinIt

    My analysis is completely subjective. I'm not using any special analysis. Hence I only wanted to make a guess.

    But if I had to break down my thought process, I'd say...

    Upon reading your msg, I picked up on Si and Fi.

    Between ISTJ, ISFJ, INFP, and ISFP (Si and Fi users), I tried to see if you seemed more of a logistitian, a protector, an idealist, or an adventurer.

    I just did a simple process of elimination at that point. You don't seem like an ISTJ. Exploring the world isn't their forte.

    I also didn't get a sense of Ni or enough Se in you, so I eliminated the possibility of ISFP.

    Lastly, I just weighed how much characteristics you have between ISFJ and INFP. This was a bit more tricky. I went with my gut feeling, ISFJ, but INFP seems possible too.
