Member Questionnaire 1 (Suomea)What is beauty? What is love?
Beauty is peace, grace. When you look at something at it puts you completely at ease. That perfect face. That perfect scene. That perfect emotion. What are your most important values?
Love is knowing that someone will do anything for you, that they will give their all until there is no more to give.
Loyalty, kindness, power, protection.Do you have any sort of spiritual/religious beliefs, and why do you hold (or don't) those beliefs in the first place?
None. Don't believe in things I can't see or can't somewhat logically prove exist.Opinion on war and militaries? What is power to you?
War and militaries are terrible things as they create so much destruction, misery, (etc.), but alas are necessary in the short term at least. Perhaps one day there will be an international government that puts an end to wars. How to create a fair system for such a government is a terribly hard question, and whatever system would surely create unfairness in itself. Such unfairness may make war an inevitability as individuals who are treated unfairly will likely always try to consistently rise up. What have you had long conversations about? What are your interests? Why?
Power is the ability to get the things you want.
I think the longest conversations I've had with others are about people, love, emotions. My interests are in figuring out how things work, and this includes people. I also enjoy being around others, but really only good people.Interested in health/medicine as a conversation topic? Are you focused on your body?
I'm interested in health and medicine to a point. Not overly interested though. I do things in my life to stay healthy, and am a lot healthier than others, but I don't particularly care to think about it too much. Figured out the ways to keep myself the healthiest and just stick to doing those things. I am not usually very focused on my body at all. I don't notice how I currently feel a lot a lot of the time ignoring it to do the things I want. For instance I have a strong resistance to the cold, and don't complain about temperature that much until it gets unbearable. I can play super hard in sports in the moment ignoring my body to stop, and won't notice getting injured too much (can play through the pain a lot). This however can backfire in the long term sometimes as my body will finally react and say what the hell were you doing!?! I'll end up in shock or something.What do you think of daily chores?
Boring.Books or films you liked? Recently read/watched or otherwise. Examples welcome.
Shawshank Redemption, relate to Andy Dufresne quite a bit.What has made you cry? What has made you smile? Why?
-Where do you feel: at one with the environment/a sense of belonging?
When I'm around trusted others.What have people seen as your weaknesses? What do you dislike about yourself?
I dislike my inability to finish tasks and to bring ideas to fruition. I have a lot of ideas of how to improve the world, but often look to others to bring them to fruition. I get frustrated by my inability to change the world.What have people seen as your strengths? What do you like about yourself?
People like the fact that I can come up with solutions to most problems.In what areas of your life would you like help?
Bringing ideas to fruition. Staying positive.Ever feel stuck in a rut? If yes, describe the causes and your reaction to it.
I feel in a rut when it hits me emotionally. I'll be alone somewhere and notice I'm not accomplishing the things I want to accomplish, and just feel tired. Being alone for too long can definitely put me in a rut. What qualities do you most like and dislike in other people? What types do you get along with?
I'll normally change my situation and put myself around others and the problems resolve themselves.
I like kindness, fairness, beauty. I dislike aggression, and the over manipulation of others.How do you feel about romance/sex? What qualities do you want in a partner?
I'm not sure how I feel about romance/sex. I guess I'm semi aggressive and semi sweet. Probably someone like Don Draper is how I act the most sexually, though when not in a sexual state I'm much friendlier/kinder than he is. If you were to raise a child, what would be your main concerns, what measures would you take, and why?
Traits I find attractive in a partner are kindness, beauty, warmth, and trust in many ways. A partner who trusts me to make their life better, and doesn't necessarily have to play by the rules of society to get there.
That the child has enough food/resources to survive. That they are able to prosper and to avoid a lot of the modern day plights that humans have created.A friend makes a claim that clashes with your current beliefs. What is your inward and outward reaction?
Ok. Describe your relationship to society. How do you see people as a whole? What do you consider a prevalent social problem? Name one.
Ah ok, I don't think that's right, but ok.
I see people as flawed. In need of guidance.How do you choose your friends and how do you behave around them?
I choose my friends based on perceived loyalty. With friends I joke around a lot, have a very dry sense of humor. I'm typically quieter, more stoic than they are, so deadpan humor seems in line with my personality in a lot of ways. I'll typically have a slight smile on my face when using deadpan humor. I appreciate others who are typically goofier, more ready to accept things than I am. When they have misconceptions I typically correct them, and show them a better path.How do you behave around strangers?
Depends on the situation and person. Typically somewhat friendly to people who talk to me. Show some but not a ton of emotion. Right now I'm in a library and could not tell you what a single person around me looks like, so I guess I can be aloof at times. I typically don't interact with strangers unless there's a reason. If someone is honestly friendly (i.e. not trying to get anything from me) I'll usually be friendly back at least.
