I posted stuff about myself before, but that was before I learned that everyone uses a Questionare instead! (Please forgive me, I'm new).
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.
Hmm, no I'm pretty much my usual self. Although I am rather bored but I don't know if that has anything to do with my personality >.< I am 15, male, by the way.
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.
(well I tried to post the link, but it said Iw asn't allowed..? Anywho, it's name is ROME TAKE 4 on flickr, and it was posted by some guy named Friks.. So yeeah I hope you can find it!)
It's a very lovely photo! To me it looks like a very fancy hotel, because the windows all have the same, uniform white curtains of a hotel, but without those I'd probably say it was some very old Vatican City building. Because it remind sme of a hotel, it makes me think of excitement, summertime, and vacation. I especially like the gray clouds through the glass ceiling, that makes me think that a good old summer thunderstorm is rolling in. Apart from the hotel point of it, it kind of reminds me of Hogwarts (I'm a HUGE Harry Potter fan by the way), with the warmly colored stone walls and murals and paintings all over. So overall I say it makes me pretty excited because of everything it reminds me of.
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?
Uh oh! I'd like to think that I would keep fairly calm. I mean it is only a car break down, right? I would probably try to calm everyone, and even try to make a few jokes (no matter how awful) just to try to lighten the mood. And internally I would probably be actually kind of excited! I mean we're lost in the middle of nowhere, to be honest I would just eat up that drama! However, if we ended up waiting a long time that would fade away and I would probably just go quiet and mutter things under my breath about how mad I am that we're missing Nicki Minaj!!
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 a little skeptical. Who will be at the party? How long does it go until? But at the same time, as long as these people I dorve here with are my friends, I could probably have a great time. I'll jnust hang out with them the whole time, it'll be fun! But right before a party (especially one that was just sprung on me!) I'll always get a little nervous.
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?
First Q: By beliefs do you mean like religion? Well anyway, I'm going to answer like that:
I'd be pretty annoyed. I get so annoyed whenever I see people make fun of any belief, especially mine! Everyone has a right to their opinion! Which is probably what I would say to my friend, everyone has their opinion, and you shouldn't be judging someone off of it. So I would tell them that, but I'm thinking something a little less polite xD
5. What would you do if you actually saw/experienced something that clashes with your previous beliefs, experiences, and habits?
Hmm, well my beliefs (once again, assuming you mean religion) has remained the same my whole life so I have no previous. I'll focus on experiences and habits. But I'm still a little confused on what it means by 'something that clashes with your past experiences, and habits'. Can someone please explain this one to me? :/ I apologize for my lack-of-understanding/sillyness.
6. What are some of your most important values? How did you come about determining them? How can they change?
I think that happiness is the most important thing in life (is that a value..?) I think that this is the highest achievement, as all other achievements only create it. I think that everything that is right can be explained in: as long as something makes you happy, and it's not hurting anyone, including yourself, it's right! Hallelujah!
I also think that manners are of high value. There's nothing worse than dealing with a rude person -.- I think forgiveness is one of the highest things out there. No matter what I cannot hold a grudge that lasts longer than 3 days. I literally am not capable of that. Also, I value security and stability. I need to know I am safe and secure, physically, mentally, and even financially (I would hopefully never put money in front of other everything else here, but I still value if my money is stable and secure). I need all of that to have peace :) Lastly I think love is of high importance, but not like the romantic love (that's important, but come on) I think love like family love and friendship love is beautifully important :D -group hug-
As far as how I came to value these things, I don't really know. I guess my parents probably taught me to value all of these things, but I just naturally value these too (forgiveness, like I said, I can't hold a grudge).
And can these things ever change: Probably. Maybe after I fall in love-get married-have kiddums I'll probably value security and protection even more than I already do, and I'll probably value romance more.
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.) Hmm to be honest, probably my ability to forgive. I can honestly say I don't hate anybody, and as far as I can remember, I enver have. Sure I don't forget, but I do forgive. if we got into an arguement, all you would have to do is try to talk to me 5 minutes later without arguing and I'll have forgiven you. I think it's great, and bad. I mean it's bad because in the future I might let people walk over me and use me, but it's great because if I'm not mad at anyone, I'll probably be happy myself. And I value happiness above all ;)
8. How do you treat hunches or gut feelings? In what situations are they most often triggered?
I usually look into them. Not completely throw my heart into it, but I'll follow them a little bit and see if they might be leading me on the right track. I'll do my homework and research it all before I decide my hunch is the right thing to do. I don't really now how they're triggered... really in any situation with options I'll get a feeling that one is right (so yeah pretty much every situation). Sorry, I wish I could tell more :/
9. a) What activities energize you most? b) What activities drain you most? Why?
Hm well usually social activities do both. Like say I'm hanging out with friends, I'll be very excited and be all over the place and just having a good time. But after that I'll just be kind of tired and not really in the mood to hang out for a day or two. So like, it gives me energy in the moment, but then I don't have any left... Yeah it's odd.
I write a lot and once I get into the swing of it, I get really excited and energized. Really anything that I can use abilities/skills/talents I have.
Draining activities are mostly things that I know I'm horrible, go figure. Especisally when I have to put myself out there and I know I'm bad (theatre..). That's probably normal though :)
10. What do you repress about your outward behavior or internal thought process when around others? Why?
Well it depends who others is.
People I'm comfortable with: I don't really repress anything. Well, that's not true, I do hold back any opinion of mine that I know they highly disagree with. And I mean like they hate it. But I think that is really just the polite thing to do :)
People I don't know: I really hold back everything. I think everything out and the things I do show/express have been triple checked and approved by me. And really I automatically try to agree with them, even if I know that's not how I really feel :/ -sigh-
Wow! I'm done! Thanks for helping me! I apologize for any errors/misunderstandings I made about the questions! Thank y'all :)
