General to specific, specific to general – what does it mean?
General is just overall, not narrowed down. Specific is the opposite, narrowed down to a certain topic or thing, detail.
What does "logical" mean? What is your understanding? Do you think that it correlates with the common view?
Putting things together and coming up with a conclusion that's believable if you tell people step by step and the details.
Yes I think so. I tend to not trust facts(if i dont agree with them/have experienced it) because some facts have proven to be wrong, it could all just be made up by people, or they got something wrong etc. I trust my and others experiences more.
How do you explain fractions on the dial of the clock?
Um, theyre built up so it can show all the hours in a 12-hour period, and all the minutes? i dont really know how to explain this one.
What is a rule? What rules do you have to follow?
A rule is something made up/approved by the people in charge (or by democracy), if you break it it cannot lead to consequences by the government/police, but by others.
You don't have to follow any rules if you don't want to. But you have to be able to deal with the consequences.
What is hierarchy? Do you need to follow it? Why or why not?
Basically in a hierarchy there's people in charge that have the most power, and then people with less power that can be controlled by the people in power.
Um so in a school for example you have the principal>teachers>students. There are powers that rule over the principal aswell if you take it further.
I don't get what you mean by "follow it"? Like if you're a student you have to be a student, you can't rule over other peoples grades or change something about the school. Unless you group up with a bunch of other students and protest. Maybe that'll help the principal realize you want a change, and if the principal wont change that thing, there may be losses for the school/principal. So he/she will change it. ))
What do you think of instructions? Do you use them? Could you write an instruction manual? If so, what type of instruction manual would you most likely write?
I follow instructions on things i dont know how to do. Like say i hadnt done pancakes before. Then i would find a recipe and follow all the instructions obviously to prevent a bad outcome. I wouldnt just look at an overview of the ingredients and be like "okay lets go! let's just try things until we get it right!". Why would you do that if you already have the right recipe INFRONT OF YOU. After i get comfortable with the instructions i can start experimenting with it, as i feel more secure in my abilities.
Sure i could write an instruction manual. It would be about something i had a lot of experience in.
Please explain: "Freedom is in complying with the laws, but not in ignoring the laws"? Do you agree with the statement? Why?
I just looked up the word complying and it means following the law? So they mean freedom is by following the laws and not ignoring them. Uhh no i dont agree. If you live in North korea and follow the laws you are not free.
Tell us how about consistent you are?
Im consistent in not being consistent. Nah, but i dont know. In terms of sticking to one thing for years i'm not consistent. My behaviour and opinions are pretty consistent.
What is a "standard"? Why do people need it?
A measure of how something is supposed to be, or the bare minimum of how something should be. They need it so they know theyre not going in the wrong direction.
How do you feel about this block?: It was easy except some words/terms i'd never heard before that threw me off.
What is work in your opinion? Why do people go to work? Are there any parameters where you can distinguish whether you can do this work or not?
Work is something boring. People go to work to make money for themselves to have a better life, but it is also something the government needs you to do to make society function. You can always learn stuff along the way, but you can't run for president if you have no experience in business/politics/whatever it is you need, lol. You can't do work that you have no clue about if you're expected to do it immedietly, is what im saying.
Is there any correlation between quality and quantity? Tell us if or how the price depends on quality?
I honestly don't know how to answer the first question. Idk what it means. The price usually depends on the quality, although if a company has already made a brand for themselves they can start to slack a little bit while increasing the prices. This can go bad though if people realize it and the word spreads.
How do people determine the quality of work? How do you determine such quality? How well you can determine the quality of any purchase, do you pay any attention to it?
They determine it on how it fits the *standard* i guess. I determine quality based on what i want. I usually end up comparing it to others, and get disappointed if it's different than others that are in the same category/same thing, and judge it as bad quiality, usually.
How do you feel if you didn't finish some work? Does it ever happen? What are the reasons?
I don't really feel anything depending on what it is or how it will affect me. Yes it happens. Reasons is because i can't put my emotions aside, or im already busy with something else OR i just hate doing it and it's very hard for me to do it.
What is "Interesting work" for you?
Um, something creative, possibly. Not sure.
You go to the store and see something you're interested in buying; there is a price tag on it. What parameters are you going to use to understand if it's overpriced, underpriced, or priced correctly?
Compare it to other things i've seen and how it compares. Also how much i like it...
When you work and someone tells you: "You don't do it right." What is your reaction?
Not sure. Depends on their attitude. I ask them to show me how to do it. I recently got pissed at my family because they said i was doing this one thing wrong. Or that their method is better.
There is a professional right next to you. You always see that you can't perform the way they do. Your feelings, thoughts and actions?
Annoyed, jealous probably. Depends on what it is.
When you have to ask someone else to help you with the task, how do you feel?
Kind of stupid and i feel like i should be able to do it myself, like others. But it's not a huge deal. I appreciate people helping me with math, assignments etc. Not so much with things i already know how to do/been doing for a while.
You need to build a pyramid exactly like in Egypt. Your thoughts, feelings and actions?
Boring, why, who will even come and see this and how will this benefit me. Going to take a loooong time. I'd get a team of people to help me, go to egypt measure it and shit, also look up studies about it i guess. Then hire builders. Do it. Dunno how i would have money for this.
How did you feel about this block?: Boring but alright.
What is beauty? Do you change your opinion about beauty? Does your understanding correlate with the generally accepted notion? What goes beyond the generally accepted notion?
Emotionsss. Or a story. I don't really care for physical beauty. I do care how i look and others but it's not a huge thing in my life. I love a big city during night and all the bright lights with people and lots of things going on.
Please describe your understanding of a beautifully dressed person. What is the core of beauty? How do you explain what is beautiful to a person who has never heard about beauty before?
Oh god idk how to answer this. Someone who doesn't just dress like everyone else, but at the same time it looks good. Now what looks good uhh like more dark colors?
Core of beauty i have no idea. 3d question idk.
Is there a template of understanding what beautiful means for everyone to use? Is there such a term as "classical beauty"? If so, what is it?
No i've realised it's different for everyone. The only thing thats the same for everyone is that we like healthy looking people biologically, with a few exceptions.
What is comfort? What is coziness? How do you create your comfort and coziness? How do others evaluate your skill in doing so? Do you agree with them?
Comfort is just not feeling pain or being uncomfortable. I create it by making sure i have a comfortable bed, and i wear clothes that feel good when im home. In public i kind of neglect it. I dont know. I dont create coziness or comfort for others
How do you pick your own clothes? Do you follow fashion? Why? Do you know how to select clothes for different types of figures?
I pick what looks good. No i dont follow fashion unless its something i like. Maybe? idk. Try me. lol
How do you cook? Do you follow recipes? What do others think of your skill?
I usually dont cook, i just buy frozen things that i reheat. When i have to cook i follow recipes yes. Otherwise it will end up in disaster most likely ))
Are you good at color patterns and mixing them and matching?
I usually just wear black or gray cause its what i like.
If someone is telling you what is beautiful and what is not, what goes with what color and what is not, do you agree with this person?
I wont just trust them blindly, ill see if i like it or not.
Tell us how you'd design any room, house or an office. Do you do it yourself or trust someone else to do it? Why?
How do you know if a person has bad taste? Could you give us an example? Do you always trust your own taste or do you seek opinions from others?
Its subjective. I usually trust my own taste unless its something really risky then ill ask others. When younger i used to ask people ALOT. Sometimes it would stop me from buying something i liked but sometimes i just got mad and said i think it looks good so ill buy it. lol
How do you feel about this block?: superficial
Can you line up human resources and make them do things? What methods do you use? Can you press people? If so, how does it happen?
I used to more when i was younger. Id have this one girl who wouldnt leave me alone and i would be like "let's do this! itll be fun", id make her do it instead of me and i knew we would get in trouble and then she'd get yelled at. She blamed me but i just acted innocent haha. I can press people in telling the truth and stuff like that. Threaten them with things that would hurt their feelings or just constantly annoy them and point out their logical fallacies until they can't deny it any longer and they give up.
What is incursion? How do you deal with this? Can you repulse? How easy can you do it?
Im guessing it is an attack? these words are weird. In public i dont let my temper get over me quite as much as in private but i would attack back.
What does "my people" and "strangers" mean? When do "my people" become "strangers" and why?
My people are people i hang out with alot or people im close with. Strangers are people i dont have a connection with and rarely talk to. My people would become strangers if they hurt me deeply/betrayed me and we werent able to solve it and we stopped talking.
Are there strategies of attack? Can you use them? When is it justified?
I don't usually attack if the other person hasnt done anything or have a bad attitude etc. If they have a bad attitude towards me and throw out passive aggressive comments i will back until i decide the person has crossed the limit and ive had enough and tell them off.
Do you think it's ok to occupy someone else's territory? In what situations?
Im thinking of groups here and if someone threatened my position i would silently try to stop it. If in a relationship i would get very defensive and stop the contact between my partner and the other person. Im pretty possessive and jealous.
What are the methods of volitional force? When is it most effective and in what situations?
Dont know what this means. :/
How do you protect yourself and your interests?
Basically answered it in the question earlier.
Describe your behavior in the situations of opposition and if you have to use some force?
Try to stay calm but usually end up letting my emotions take over. Especially if this is an actual fight with emotions involved. In debates i'll get into it and my heartbeat raises etc but i stay logical and reasonable.
Do others think of you as a strong person? Do you think you are a strong person?
People that dont know me think im strong, the few ppl that know me well knows im a sensitive person. In a sense im strong that i keep getting myself up after life throws shit at me, but at those moments i hurt alot and feel horrible. It ends eventually and im strong again.
How do you understand if a person is strong? Are there any signs of a strong person? What is the core of any force? Why do people listen to one person, but not the other?
They dont give up easily on their goals, but are also willing to accept if its an unreasonable goal. They dont let others negative comments hurt them because theyre strong in themselves. The core of force? Confidence and anger maybe? They do because people got reputations.
What is boorishness? Does your understanding of it correlate with the generally accepted notion? How would you explain what boorishness mean to a 10 year old child? How would you explain the same to an adult who does not behave ethically?
Boorishness is when people have no social skills/charm and they just say things that will hurt the other person without realising it will. I dont know since ive never heard this word before. Maybe others see it as doing it intentionally as well? Thats not as bad in my opinion. When someone says to you "your face is weird"(especially if theyre trying to be quirky or something omg ew) and then you get mad and the person is like "what?" it just turns me off so much. I would explain it as saying things without thinking of the consequences it will bring.
How would you improve the moral of the society?
Can you justify somebody's bad behavior by thinking that he/she wasn't taught how to do so?
No, just that the person hasnt had enough experience in the area, or that they have a mental disorder.
Give us your understanding of love. Can you love and punish at the same time?
It starts out as an attraction between two people. Then they get close and feel comfortable with eachother while maintaining the attraction. thats love. You can punish peple you love yes, sometimes you have to so the person will realise what theyre doing is not okay with you.
Have you heard about the Southern hospitality? Everything is for the guest. There is also a German hospitality – the master of the house is always right. What method is the right one? Try to evaluate without the weight of any cultural aspects, traditions, nations etc.
I dont like any of them that well but the german one is better imo. Why should you do everything for the guest? This is my house and my stuff lol. Obviously i wont treat you like shit if i brought you here, but iw ont do anything you say just because you happen to be in my house. I tend to be pretty stingy with sharing my things, even with family(or mostly with family probably). But its gotten better
What is sympathy? When do you need to express it? When is it advised not to?
Its feeling bad for someone. I dont know. I feel awkward doing it especially with people i dont know that well. Its advised not to when that person wnats to be left alone, i guess.
Are there any norms of behavior in the society? Do you follow them? Do people always have to follow them? Why?
Yep. Here in my country we dont talk to strangers. I dont unless i need something. I mean there are a bunch of norms you dont think about. But idk if theyre a construct of society or just biologiclly we dont do those things. Idk what im talking about.
How do you know what attitude among people is right or wrong?
If theyre rude for no reason its wrong. If they wont stick up for themselves when someone else is being a dick to them idk if its right or wrong but i dont respect when ppl cant stick up for themselves.
What does moral mean? What is immoral? Does your understanding correlate with the others? How can you evaluate the correctness of your own understanding?
idk man. Not something i pay much attention to unless it hurts me.
Somebody is giving you a negative attitude – what is your reaction? Could you show your own negative attitude toward someone else? If so, how? Could you give a person the silent treatment? How easily do you forgive people?
I get a bad feeling but try to ignore it, or sneak some things in. I will stop being polite and smiley etc. I personally suck at giving a person the silent treatment if i like them. Its easier when they chase me though. If they hurt me really bad its hard to forgive. I will when i stop being hurt and they have showed their genuine regret and apoligized/made it up to me.
How did you feel about this block?: Its ok.
"Whole world does not cost one tear of child" – how do you understand this phrase? Do you agree with this opinion?
that one person shouldnt have to suffer for everyone else? i dont understand really.
Is it acceptable to express emotions? Give examples of inappropriate expression of emotions.
Yes. Inappropriate would be perhaps expressing your horniness at a kindergarten
Can you use negative emotions? In what situations?
Yes? When im mad or upset. What do you mean use them?
How do you express negative emotions? What does it look like? What do others think about it?
When i get mad i yell. Or jsut stop TRYING to be nice. When im sad in public i try and go to the bathroom and cry so i wont get a bunch of attention.
Shallow emotions – what does it mean? Are there any other emotions?
Like emotions that you dont feel deep down. Just trying to cover up or fit in maybe.
What are right or wrong emotions?
Theres no wrong or right emotions
Can you change the emotional state of yourself? Of others? To what side – positive or negative?
Yes but just negative i think.
What does it mean to "pour out your emotions"? How does it happen?
When youve held them in so long that you just break down and start crying and tells everything about how youre feeling
Does your internal emotional state correlate with what you show externally?
Usually yes. Sometiems i can be a little restrained when im uncomfortable.
Do you track what mood you are in throughout the day? Do you notice the mood of others?
I would say so. Im definitely aware of what im feeling and when i feel better or worse. Yes i do.
Do you like surprises?
Sure. Depends. I hate when people are like "i have to tell you something" and then it takes forever until they say what it is.
How people change? How do you feel about those changes? Can others see the changes?
Yes. Im neutral towards them. People can see if someone is in a happier/sadder place then they used to be yes.
Is it true that whatever happens is only for the best?
Id like to think that but idk. Every experience is a growing experience but some people have only bad experiences and some barely none. Its unfair.
What do you think of horoscopes, fortune telling etc.? Do you believe in luck, lucky fortuity?
I think its fun but i know its probably fake. Its a way to pass time. I believe in bad luck bcause i experience is every day )
Can you forecast events? Is it even real?
Yes if youre aware of the signs that leads to it. its not 100 percent sure though.
What is time? How do you feel time? Can you "kill" time? How?
Idk how to explain time. I feel time by looking back on how things used to be and how they have changed. You can kill time by doing stimulating activities
Do you need help creating forecasts and determining how something will end? Do you trust those forecasts?
Im very aware of weird signs in relationships. Other than that idk if im good at it.
Are you normally late? How do you react if someone is late?
Im not late unless i want to be. It depends on what situation.
Imagine the situation where you agreed to meet with someone. Your feelings and actions: a) 20 minutes before the meeting starts, b) 5 minutes before the meeting starts, c) it is time for the meeting to start, but the person is not here, d) 20 minutes after the meeting start time and the person is not here, e) more time and the person is still not here…
a) nervous probably. b) idk. c) they'll be here soon probably. d) where are they? maybe they forgot? i send them a text or call. i check the date and time so i didnt get it wrong. e) with no response, either annoyed or worried.
How did you feel about this block?: Fun, somewhat hard on certain questions
Is there a meaning of life? In what? Is it the same for everybody?
I think there is some meaning. I dont want to just work and do the same thing every day forever and live a stable boring life. Idk i dont care about other peoples meanings.
What should be done so people can be happy?
idk. no one is going to be completely happy through their entire life. If you are, youre misssing out on something.
In the situations with a lot of potential and volatility will you trust your own guts, logically calculating everything or will you ask people you trust what should be done?
Ask others but eventually decide myself. I would probably regret it afterwards though. Im pretty indecisive.
When you meet a stranger, what can you say about them right away? How do you know what this person is all about? Does it take long to understand someone's talents?
How confident they are and what "group" of people they belong to. And if they like me, unless theyre shy. Yes with some people it takes long time to udnerstand their talents because they dont show it.
Remember an interesting person and call out 5-6 qualities you think are interesting in them. What makes an interesting person? Are you an interesting person? Why? What if someone calls you "boring" and "not interesting"?
I dont think many people are that interesting. Cant think of anyone. What makes someone interesting is when theyre not like everyone else, but still has charm. I think im interesting because i dont follow everyone else like a sheep. I think for myself. That would hurt me a little.
What opinions, from people who know you, seem: a) fair; b) not fair; c) hurtful; d) strange.
a) that im sensitive.
b) that i give up easily.
c) that i have a hard time giving up on people and moving on. and that they think im socially inept. that im boring.
d) that im normal.
Do you fantasize? What kind of fantasies do you have?
Yes. I fantasize alot about people i find attractive, about having a different life, about the past.
What qualities should a person have to be successful and why?
Confidence, strongwilled, charm, because with confidence youll be able to present your ideas to others, strongwilled you will keep going even if you get shut down, charm, people like charming people.
What qualities can stop a person from being successful and why?
Laziness, fear, being too nice. laziness=you wont actually take action. fear=you wont present your ideas and it wont lead anywhere. being too nice=listening to everyone else and going by their rules when your ideas may be better.
What is more important in life – to be a good person or be a successful one? Why? Is a good person always successful? If not, then why?
I dont really care about eithe honestly.
No a good person is not always successful, because people will walk all over you.
That took alot of time ><
