I won't give any non-form information, because I'm worried about biasing things.
1) What aspect of your personality made you unsure of your type?
Confusion about the nature of Ne. Seeing the way people describe it makes it seem like they are receiving constant possibilities from literally everything they see. I am quite creative and loopy, though.
Don't get me wrong, I'm a forward thinker, I'm always planning for something, but I'm wondering if perhaps I haven't figured out my type because I've been attacking things from the angle of being an extrovert.
I've been doing the cognitive quiz on here a lot before I joined, and I score highly in Ne, Te and sometimes Ni and Ti, depending on the day I've had, Fe and Fi will shoot up higher. Obviously this is driving me mad.
2) What do you yearn for in life? Why?
A few things. Notoriety, success and either admiration or acceptance. Preferably, admiration. I don't want to live an average life, I would rather live a fun life, making a boatload of cash out of being really good at something I like.
I suppose I yearn for these things because they're some sort of indication of achievement and hard work. I am not a particularly materialistic person, though I think dressing well is always a good idea.
3) Think about a time where you felt like you were at your finest. Tell us what made you feel that way.
You'll think I'm terrible for this, but there was a time where GTA: San Andreas was taken off the shelves for having unlockable sexual content in it, and I managed to sell my copy of the game for $120 to an acquaintance, under the belief that the game was off the shelves for good. It was back on the shelves the very next week. I generally find myself unable to convince people to do what I want, so it's good to know there is a little bit of that ability hidden. I feel a bit bad about, but not terribly.
The other time was where I realised that I don't have to really try all that hard to make a romantic connection or hook up with a girl, or whatever. For years, I'd been trying to come off as all terse and tough, but wouldn't you know, you can just be a chilled out dude and things come your way. That made me feel good because I realised I could finally just be comfortable with who I am, even if I am generally a terrible conversationalist most of the time. It also allowed me to take a bit of a rest from obsessing about girls, which took up a large portion of my adolescence.
4) What makes you feel inferior?
Being distrusted, micromanaged and being discouraged by people (that are most likely hardcore-realist SJs).
5) What tends to weigh on your decisions? (Do you think about people, pro-cons, how you feel about it, etc.)
I will usually have two conflicting forces in my head. Logic and gut feeling. Gut feeling wins more often, but gut feeling can be a bit inaccurate in picking a situation, I usually end up wishing I'd done the calmer, more objective thing.
6) When working on a project what is normally your emphasis? Do you like to have control of the outcome?
Conceptualising. This is the biggest thing that makes me think ENTP. Over the years I've started doing all sorts of things, and then just found myself too lazy to follow through. This could be anything from making RPG Maker games, cleaning my room or making a system to keep myself organised better, none of which generally get finished.
7) Describe us a time where you had a lot of fun. How is your memory of it?
Going to an open air jazz festival in Sydney Harbour a few years ago. Fantastic music, the people were good and the vibe was quite friendly. It felt different to your average rock or metal concert, where you're packed in a dark room with smelly people that have long greasy hair. Just good vibes all around.
8) When you want to learn something new, what feels more natural for you? (Are you more prone to be hands on, to theorize, to memorize, etc)
Learning at my own leisure. Compulsively reading up on anything that catches my fancy. Structured learning and rote is very difficult. If I can physically or conceptually pull something apart (be that the circuitboard of an electric guitar or learning music theory), then great. Textbook learning is really difficult for me.
9) How organized do you to think of yourself as?
I'm good at planning ways to organise, but in recent years, I've gotten less caring about making appointments on time, unless they're crucial. Like a job interview.
My desk is a fucking mess.
10) How do you judge new ideas? You try to understand the principles behind it to see if they make sense or do you look for information that supports it?
I generally stay open-minded about new ideas, generally even farfetched ones. I will usually attempt to verify the information myself. I'm not the type to shoot an idea down, if anything, I enjoy fleshing the idea out with someone, rather than having every detail in place before I bring the idea forward.
As far as the question is concerned, understanding the principles behind it.
11) You find harmony by making sure everyone is doing fine and belonging to a given group or by making sure that you follow what you believe and being yourself?
Don't really care. The more well-rested I am, the nicer I am to people, though.
I tend not to belong to the group, I simply hang around it. Most of the time, I don't really relate to the people. Or when I do, I'm not jovial enough to make them like me.
12) Are you the kind that thinks before speaking or do you speak before thinking? Do you prefer one-on-one communication or group discussions?
I am a total blabbermouth. I generally think before speaking, but blurt whatever it is out anyway. It's a compulsion and a fairly annoying one at that.
One-on-one is far better than group. But the kind of people that I hang out with in a group would get sick of me in about 5 seconds flat in a one-on-one. Girls seem to like one-on-ones with me more than guys.
13) Do you jump into action right away or do you like to know where are you jumping before leaping? Does action speaks more than words?
I like to know where I'm jumping, but situations often don't allow for that, so generally I have to think of a split-second plan. I'm usually fine with winging it.
It's better to try and diffuse a bad situation with words first, of course. No need to be punched out or slapped if it can be avoided.
14) It's Saturday. You're at home, and your favorite show is about to start. Your friends call you for a night out. What will you do?
Night out wins.
15) How do you act when you're stressed out?
Three delightful stages:
1. Lightly exasperated, will take charge of a situation if there is inadequate control over it despite not being leader/boss.
2. Icy cold, hateful gaze that strikes fear into the hearts of pretty much everyone.
3. Total social withdrawal, annoyance at just about everything under the sun, and really really touchy about my personal space.
16) What makes you dislike the personalities of some people?
Materialism, superficiality, bossiness, ignorance, excluding people because they're "weird", controlling, emotionally manipulative, etc
17) Is there anything you really like talking about with other people?
Music, what their life plans are, their niche interests, witty banter, women, mocking people nearby, finding a funny idea, concept or behaviour and riffing on it for ages.
18) What kind of things do pay the least attention to in your life
Sports, cars, clubbing, house music and acting in a socially acceptable manner.
19) How do your friends perceive you? What is wrong about their perception? ? What would your friends never say about your personality ?
Work friends: Quiet, awkward womanizer with no hand-eye coordination that uses big words but isn't all that smart and has a penchant for jazzy bars.
Online friends: A whiny, troubled, disenchanted, hopeless romantic. (I tend to vent online and don't really tell anyone anything offline.)
Close friends: A maniacal, highly-strung rant machine that needs to take a chill pill, but is otherwise a pretty mature and understanding guy.
I don't think any of them are particularly wrong in their assumptions. They are all facets of my personality that manifest in different ways to different people. But ultimately, it's all still me.
I honestly don't know what they would never say. I'm not in touch with what people think or say about me.
20) You got a whole day to do whatever you like. What kind of activities do you feel like doing?Going to a nice cafe for few hours with a close friend, getting drunk and then going to a jazz show(should there hypothetically be one). Then going home, sitting on the balcony and having a drunk deep and meaningful before hitting the hay.
