I've been browsing the forum lately, reading random threads to improve my knowledge. Since I feel I have to take a new start, I'm currently trying to collect RL data and see what I can do with it later.
The problem is, I have prepared 4 nice boxes... but may end putting the wrong things in.
Also, one of my friend said to me once it's just bullshit to put people into boxes. Well... let's say my observations need to be organized somewhat.
So, I've met one of my friends' family and had a wonderful connection with every 4 of its members.
There is my friend (obviously), a heavily intellectual female who enjoys giving me mini conferences about books, games, art. It's often feeding me with facts and figures. It's very detailed but not really structured. She voices her knowledge every time she sees a curious look on my face. It's very "on the go".
She likes to cook and talk about food and health (maybe due to her education). She does not seem to handle practical matters well (loses her keys, forgets her bag...)
Shows a demonstratively ethical behaviour : this attitude is good, this one is bad, and so on. At the same time, ends up doing the opposite of what's expected in social gatherings. Makes me wonder how. Sometimes she just feels badass though.
Now her mother is a very, veryyyyyyy caring person. I have thought many times she should be italian !! She monitors the entire house. Once you've stepped in, you fall under her care.
I don't know her very well, but I have found myself included very quickly and naturally within ther merry little society.
She's quite loud, never rests, values efficiency a great deal ("never wander empty handed, there is always something to tidy").
She cooks and talk about it ALOT ! Nearly analysing the dish on a molecular scale.
She also eats thoses little cheese cubes just to get the trivial pursuit questions in it. It's a familial sport !
The father is a relaxed and laid-back person. He likes to make quircky remarks, nonsense jokes, and puts everyone at ease. He also values intellectual performance, but not quite as much as the rest of the house. He's happy to let his mind rest and enjoy the atmosphere.
And finally the big (and he actually is physically imposing) brother : a seemingly active young man, ready to argue at any time, over any topic, takes a pride in being always logical and rational about... anything ! If argument turns into his disadvantage, he quietens and listens to offered explaination. Provided you really know what you're talking about. Otherwise you're in for stinging remarks.
Likes to cook (yes, he too !). Is very into good food/wine.
Is like his sister : a walking source of random data ! It goes from shoes to economics, sports, travels...
In personal relations, is very reserved. Rarely pays compliment. Goes instead for ironic jokes about someone to show he cares.
Well, I'm done. Who's who ? I'd like to know about their types because I feel right at home with them, especially mother and father.
Hope you won't find my thread invasive. I've been lurking for some time, trying to read and absorb first and forehand, but curiousity got me.
