What's my Socionics type?" questionnaire
1.What is beauty? What is love?
Defining beauty and love is difficult in general and I doubt I can do it alone, but my understanding of it is…what it is. Love is just love,and it’s ridiculously hard to assign meaning to something, simply because you may be wrong logically, you may be blocking your perception by narrowing in on something too soon, and you can’t describe it no matter what you try. However, I would mostly define love by the things it affects and the ways it is shown. Perhaps it is the scented roses one person gives another person to show their appreciation and affection for them. Perhaps it is the relaxed smile,the carefree acceptance into the deepest parts of your soul. It could be the adoration and appreciation a person shows to another. I would also define beauty as something that derives pleasure, whether aesthetically or idealistically.
2.What are your most important values?
My most important value is strength of will, because people who are weak enough to fold to aesthetic pleasures or to the weakness of no willpower tends to put me off. As such, my other values are intelligence, honesty, trust, love, an understanding of what you'redoing before you overly comply. I don't have many values I tend to utilize, but I extend a wide net composed of my values towards everything I do, mostly unconsciously if I were to analyze my text.
3.Do you have any sort of spiritual/religious beliefs, and why do you hold (or don't) those beliefs in the first place?
I tend to be a passive person in regards to spirituality, as I tend to be nonreligious. I hold certain spiritual beliefs mainly because of the fact that I learned it from my highly spiritual grandma and mom,and while they might be illogical in nature, they are extremely useful for my underdeveloped emotional intelligence. I don't hold religious beliefs because of the fact that I see them as drains to society, as religious beliefs come with a subsets of tradition that one must follow. As a result, religion tends to be a method of controlling the people, simply because of the fact that people want power. These beliefs come from my research, some information from certain family members, and the obviousness of it all.
4.Opinion on war and militaries? What is power to you?
I'm pretty cynical in regards to war and military because of the fact that I've learned that EVERYTHING has a purpose, and while the base purpose of a military is to protect, the underlying purpose of a military is to establish and control power, politically, socially,and economically. Wars, in my opinion, are simply an extension of the establishment and control of power and resources, and I definitely agree that there is someone behind the power of the government,planning and utilizing the full might of a military to increase their personal power. In regards to what power is for me, I would mainly say that power is the ability to get what you want, when you want,how you want. That is why people like MLK Jr. and Bush Jr. can be classified as powerful people, despite their completely different areas, as MLK Jr, achieved his 'want' of civil rights in a peaceful way, yet, Bush Jr. achieved his want of oil in a violent way.Therefore, I seek to attain personal freedom and the ability to have a knowledge-seeking lifestyle with my loved ones and potentially make a mark on this world, depending on my wants then.
5.What have you had long conversations about? What are your interests?Why?
My interests are in topics I can truly understand. For example, people would expect me to be interested in something like formal logic,history, etc..., but I tend to gravitate towards social science topics like psychology, philosophy, and sociology just because analyzing people is ridiculously fun and pretty interesting. I can converse on nearly anything though, and there will be times where I say something completely crazy or go off-topic. Most of my conversations are about strange things like...”what would the world be like if a certain event changed?”, because it's extremely interesting thinking about HOW something could change, or should have already changed, or "if x event happened in (insert certain time here), could the fate of (insert world here) have been different? Anyways, that probably explains why one of my likes are reading Fanfiction, specifically AU Fanfics.
6.Interested in health/medicine as a conversation topic? Are you focused on your body?
Psh no xD. The only thing I need of my body is to keep my brain alive,and to provide me some form of sensory pleasure. It's sad to say, but I feel like my life exists WITHIN my mind and everything. It's a strange sort of disconnect to experience life, seeing all these-people with makeup/gel/etc... and I'm just here looking at them with a confused face. As such, I tend to be somewhat interested in health and medicine as a conversation topic, but not way too overly interested in it.
7.What do you think of daily chores?
Daily chores are the most boring thing in existence. I mean, washing the dishes repetitively? Mowing the lawn? Putting clothes in the washing machine? That really detracts me from the real purpose of life, like researching and learning and debating, and that's why I plan on making my life as minimalistic as possible because dealing with repetitive tasks are useless until you realize you actually do need them, and as such, making it as simple as possible is a good idea.
8.Books or films you liked? Recently read/watched or otherwise.Examples welcome.
I do like the Harry Potter series, and I have fun watching certain action/adventure movies. I really did like Inception though, so many-beautiful layers and secrets and subterfuge and action, yet the perfect amount of fantasy, concepts, and plot twists that ended in a masterpiece. However, I tend to gravitate towards fanfiction because sometimes, they make it better. For fanfics, I would say “Time Braid by ShaperV”, which is a Naruto fanfiction that involves time loops, kami, and some dark squicky stuff I cannot help but like because I want my stories to reflect the cynical nature of the world yet stick some extremely interesting concepts.
9.What has made you cry? What has made you smile? Why?
Mostly soft acts of extreme care and stuff, I mean, I know I don't smile or cry much, but most of the time, it is out of a certain fondness for one thing or another. If I'm crying happy tears, then it is something so ridiculously PERFECT that even someone such as I melts. If I’mcrying laughing tears, it is because something is so silly that I end up indirectly triggering a cry. If it's sad tears, I have been struckwith the feels. If it's angry tears though, then that means I am in stress mode.
10.Where do you feel: at one with the environment/a sense of belonging?
When I'm surrounded by my closest friends, and remembering that I'm just another person, though a ridiculously strange one for sure. For example, yesterday, I spent a whole day surrounded my some of my closest friends, and I definitely felt great because I was free to be myself in front of everyone else, having fun, and just generally having an awesome experience. Otherwise, I feel best a moments of personal self-reflection, in which it is just me learning or thinking about something, feeling connected to the vast world of knowledge awaiting me.
11.What have people seen as your weaknesses? What do you dislike about yourself?
My weaknesses stem towards my ADHD, as I have the inattentiveness as well as the hyperactivity of a Combined Type. As such, I tend to be lazy, simply because I have no desire to 'amuse' myself with menial tasks, and I definitely think too much for my own good, and am plagued with struggles as a result of my desire to question everything. I also tend to float around in subjects, and will get off task extremely easily and for a long period of time. An underlying-weakness of myself is my emotional intelligence, as I tend to be underdeveloped in it, simply because I have no need to control the emotions of others and I tend to be overly logical, resulting in a disconnect from my emotional side. My dislikes about myself tend to be linked towards my weaknesses, mainly my ADHD and my underdeveloped emotional intelligence. I also dislike how at this point in time, I have literally NO CONTROL over my life because of all of the conflict circling in and out of it, and I will get that fixed as much as possible.
12.What have people seen as your strengths? What do you like about yourself?
My strengths tend to come from my logic, intelligence, ability to think“outside the box”, and verbal skills, as well as any other skill set I may have picked up. As such, I am normally referred as an extremely intelligent, dominating person that constantly answers questions, may disrupt the teacher as a result of my curiosity, and my inability to give up at practically anything unless it's the only logical option left. I have a specialty in critical thinking skills,analysis, complicated maneuvers of planning, and my four subsets of skills: hurricanes, Pokemon, debate, and psychology. I have also tended to notice that my strengths lie in whatever I’m interested in, as I will relentlessly research any piece of information concerning a field of specialty, and no matter how narrow said interest is, I will NOT STOP until I have mastered this skill. I also do not take anything at face value either, which is a strength because of the fact that I will not be blind to hidden layers of complexity, but it is a weakness because of the fact I do not conform. My likes crop from my strengths, as I do like the utilization of my logic, my intelligence, my ability to think capably, and the verbal skills associated with debate.
13.In what areas of your life would you like help?
I would mainly like help in the department of control- namely controlling my life and freeing myself from the chains and shackles that certain areas of my life have tied to me. For example, I am tied to my secondary school system, as well as the fact that I might have to face student loans in my collegiate future, as college is literally the only way I can push myself free from unwanted portions of my life. This ties into my goal, which is to do a career I enjoy doing, free to think and pursue my own happiness without being tied to unwanted portions of my life.
14. Ever feel stuck in a rut? If yes, describe the causes and your reaction to it.
The causes of my rut tend to noticeably stem from the fact that events are choking me with stress and I start working less than I do, ending with an increased amount of stress. At that point, I tend to start falling into troubles of underdeveloped emotional intelligence,wishing to withdraw from the world and solve that problem on my own.However, if someone were to attempt to PUSH ME into solving the problem, I will burst into emotions when I would normally resist that, and after that initial burst, undercurrents of emotions will fill my very being until I just detach myself, solve the problem, and calmly return to normal.
15. What qualities do you most like and dislike in other people? What types do you get along with?
The qualities I like in other people is intelligence, ability to think,hold discussions, and I do tend to like emotional people even though I get annoyed by them somewhat. I dislike overly idiotic or compliant people, because I want someone to work with me, and not to follow,dislike overly emotional or spontaneous people because they get annoying with either their whining or indecisiveness. I get along very well with any healthy type, and among average/unhealthy types, I get along best with NT>NF>ST> SF people
16. How do you feel about romance/sex? What qualities do you want in a partner?
Romance,for me, is a necessity in a healthy relationship. So is sex, if we're talking about two non-asexual partners. I am a keen hidden romantic,and I tend to prefer it when romance is showered on me as I shower my hidden side towards them. As for the qualities that I want in a partner, I tend to like having an intelligent yet idealistic partner to complement my traits. I tend to be a strong extrovert, so I like having a quieter partner I can discuss everything with. Another trait I would prefer is a partner that allows me to deal with the planning, and can push a little spontaneity in me as I ensure they don't get themselves into trouble and overstep their boundaries. Basically, I would like to be a locus for my partner, as they push me further with their support as well.
17. If you were to raise a child, what would be your main concerns, what measures would you take, and why?
My main concern about a child is if I wasn't to push them to their full potential and instill the tools of intelligence, ingenuity, and a slight amount of pragmatism to serve their purposes. I would allow my mate to work on the development of the spiritual and emotional side of my child, as I am deficient in that, and I will develop the ability and logical side of the child, pushing them towards their favored field and success in that particular field, as I want to make sure that my child is fully prepared for the harsh realities of the world around them, and to understand that talent and hard work combined equals success.
18.A friend makes a claim that clashes with your current beliefs. What is your inward and outward reaction?
My outward reaction appears first, and I ask them precisely HOW this clashes with my current beliefs, and if so, to prove the evidence. My inward reaction is a slight hurt feeling, quashed by the relentless desire of my logic to show the exacting proof. If the proof works, I will do a check to ensure that the proof was objectively correct and unbiased, and then if it still stands, I will alter my beliefs accordingly.
19.Describe your relationship to society. How do you see people as a whole? What do you consider a prevalent social problem? Name one.
I tend to see people as individuals with unique skill sets choosing to define themselves as part of groups that work in tandem to create a society. As such, my relationship to society follows this manner, as a unique individual with an individual skill set that coexists in multiple groups in a society. I consider certain injustices and-inefficiencies a social problem, such as the lack of gay marriage in my state which should be a standard human right, the inefficiencies of the healthcare system which should necessary for EVERY HUMAN BEING, and the stupidity of our current system, which should be fixed before it destroys us all.
20.How do you choose your friends and how do you behave around them?
I choose my friends based on three factors:
As such I tend to see my friendships as alliances, as my friends help me as I help them. If they break through my defenses, then at that point they are my close friends and I will not hesitate to trust them, simply because they have proven to me that they are trustworthy. Rest assured though, if they do betray me, I will not hesitate to go eye-for-an-eye and hit them hard as well. In the end,though, my friends tend to be the most powerful, whether socially,emotionally, intellectually, or physically, simply because only they can successfully earn my friendship and I theirs.
21.How do you behave around strangers?
I tend to be guarded around strangers, simply because they can strike any and every time, so I tend to be neutral towards them. If a stranger is interesting, I will test them, and if they pass my test of friendship, I will not hesitate to offer a friendship towards them. If a stranger is suspicious, however, I WILL start planning for dangerous situations because that is the logical option.
