When I was a kid, I cried all the time because I was very sensitive and afraid of everything. Now, I smile all the time for no reason. I don't know why.Where do you feel: at one with the environment/a sense of belonging?
In a pub with good firends, talking about the universe.What have people seen as your weaknesses? What do you dislike about yourself?
Having a quick temper, being "cold", arguing too much about politics when it's not the time, being idealistic. What I hate the most about myself is not being "practical" and being constantly anxious and afraid of everything (I don't show it). I'm also lazy. Doing nothing is my favorite activity.What have people seen as your strengths? What do you like about yourself?
A friend recently told me that I always bring an original pespective. Another said that I'm good at summing up what was said. I also listen people without judging them. I'm a good public speaker and I wrote some haikus that were almost okay...In what areas of your life would you like help?
Cooking, cleaning and other necessary, boring chores.Ever feel stuck in a rut? If yes, describe the causes and your reaction to it.
All the time. I work 8 to 5 and it's not natural for me. I would much prefer work when I am inspired. I try to have moments of free time every day to read, write and think.What qualities do you most like and dislike in other people? What types do you get along with?
Very hard to tell. There are very few people I feel comfortable with. I usually admire people from afar. I think I get along with people who show acceptance and try to understand me.How do you feel about romance/sex? What qualities do you want in a partner?
I usually fall in love with perfect, imaginary women, or women I'm too shy to approach.If you were to raise a child, what would be your main concerns, what measures would you take, and why?
I have kids, and my main concern is giving them opportunities to discover and practice their talents.A friend makes a claim that clashes with your current beliefs. What is your inward and outward reaction?
I don't have beliefs, but when I hear something that I think can be viewed from a different perspective, I immediately start to explain my point of view. I like debates very much.Describe your relationship to society. How do you see people as a whole? What do you consider a prevalent social problem? Name one.
I often feel like an outsider. People are hard to understand and I don't know why they always want to control each other. I think the worst problem in the world is violence, especially when groups try to control or scare people.How do you choose your friends and how do you behave around them?
I don't consciously choose my friends. I realize we've become friends after a while. With friends, I am relaxed, not loud, but I talk a lot.How do you behave around strangers?
I don't know. I'm too scared with strangers to notice how I behave. I think I am very polite and formal because it takes me much time to adapt. Probably nobody notices how much I'm socially anxious. I'm just comfortable with people I know well, or in front of an anonymous public (like when I play music).
