Hey there, I'm new to this forum and am really interested in knowing my type. Obviously I am aware of a lot of the information on the internet to do this myself, yet, when I've given the test to my friends and family, I think, "hang on, you're nothing like that!", so I'm trying to take away the influence of what I want to be, as rather to I am.
I regard being social as a neccessity. I live for books that tell you how important a community is and therefore am social on the basis it is good for my health. I'm also conscious to be social because I hope that it would lead me to new opportunities, with my particular favourite - new love intrests. I am friends with all kinds of people, but with some I wonder why I am friends with some of them when we have nothing in common. I've always felt different. Always felt I see things differently from everyone else, and am perhaps arrogant too, thinking that a lot simply aren't intelligent enough to see things how I do. As a child I was quietly confident and outwitted the system. As a girl in my mid-teens I was desperately quiet, shy and lacking any idea how to deal with social situations. It was this experience to which I lived in the future and lacked any real social connections that made me have a goal - to become an extrovert.
I like to live for the day. This is not a natural thing, but something I've learned to do. Living in the future and plans not turning out how I'd hope made me deeply unhappy. I like to keep my options open about the future, only making brief plans just incase a new friend, opportunity or new man! can be fitted in. I also spend a lot of my time researching self improvement. My book shelves are lined with everything on health, emotional intelligence, travel - anything I can find that might make me happier. I create lists on goals and find myself doing this when one of my plans has failed and am feeling desperate for anything exciting to happen. I'm getting better at setting realistic goals.
I usually come across as very likable. I'm always very polite and take great pleasure in being like this. However often I feel I sacrifice a need to be liked for being who I was as a child - cheeky. I like to argue in a friendly fashion, but to most, I keep this underwrapped. I feel I lack compassion. It's hard for me to feel much for anybody. I prefer to keep in a bubble where I am cool, calm and not letting any outside factors effect my contentness. I have difficulties forming relationships with the opposite sex. I find it very easy to attract people that I am not attracted to, and it's very, very rare that I meet somebody I really, really like. I go with my gut feeling and judge people pretty much straight away. Once I've decided yes or no, that's it. People describe me as "complicated" and that "you never really know what she's thinking". This suprises me. Afterall, I'm friendly and jokey. The idea of commiting scares me too. What if somebody better comes along? I seem to be happy to wait for eternity until I've found what I'm looking for. I am interested in psychology and like to analyse people for my own benefits. I watch people and there body language an awful lot, so that I feel I can respond to them better. I like to guess the consequences of things so that I am prepared, as opposed to suprised when something bad happens.
Hope that wasn't too boring and deep! Appreciate any feedback
