In that other stupid topic I made, I asked semi-seriously for people to type me. I didn't really expect anything insightful, so here's some actual information about me. I'm uncertain about my type because I've undergone some changes in my life and I've read so much and taken so many damn tests I think any test I take now will be unconsciously skewed.
At any rate, I am a quiet person, usually reserved in my emotions. I do a lot of volunteer work in my off-time, but I dislike face-to-face communication with the people I'm helping. It makes me anxious. I feel like I'm always on the verge of saying something that'll completely cock things up. I have a small group of friends and often go out with them or alone (2 to 5 times a week), to music shows, concerts, museums, clubs, lectures, movie showings, or demonstrations. If I go alone, I enjoy the content of whatever I'm seeing or doing but feel almost crippling anxiety over talking to anyone there. One thing that calms me down is taking notes and sketching the other people there. At concerts and shows I'll dance, but not with anyone in particular.
I get bored very easily and frequently "multitask": listening to music, talking to someone, drawing and reading all at once. I often overschedule myself and feel very worn out for it. At the current moment I'm attending college, helping to run a student club, volunteering for a peace event, have 5 books out from the library with 1 completed and the others already started, am keeping two sketchbooks (one for artsy stuff, the other for recording lectures), and also keep a blog on occasion.
I don't consider myself an overachiever but I've always done well in school when I've put my mind to it. Sometimes I have so much on my mind I've had difficulties passing classes, though. I was in somewhat of a caregiver role for a while and I found it very stressful and it really interfered with my studies. Other students seem to give me too much credit and think I'm a lot smarter than I am, asking me for help when I can't really provide it for them. Even when I can, I have trouble articulating myself to them.
Even though I involve myself in social causes and often feel overwhelmed by anxiety, people regard me as cold and unfeeling. Even with my close relationships, I've been told that I'm very hard to get to know. I mostly communicate with people via jokes or sharing information. I'm very clumsy at comforting others, and that pains me. I've had two longish relationships in the past, and a few flings, so I'm not an unexperienced virgin, but my demeanor belies it. People are surprised that I drink and smoke weed. Of course, I only started when I was an adult and had read a lot about the effects of drugs...
I'm very interested in psychology, biology, art, and politics, and in the past I've gone off on a number of tangents involving other science or technology topics, or history, literature, music, philosophy, or religion. I like to know as much as I can about a subject. I'd really enjoy learning and while I might drop a subject for a while, competition will spur me to get as skillful in it as I can.
