I think I am IEI-Fe but some people have suggested IEE or SEI or ILE. So I thought i'd see what peoples opinions are on here
The Extended Questionnaire v2.0
What do you study or do for a living? How did you come to do that? What do you like or dislike about it?
Studying community work/counselling. I am in my element communicating with people on a personal level. Also people I barely know tend to use me as their counsellor so I figured why not get paid for it
What are your values, and why?
My value is striving for truth and understanding. Don't stick to rigid opinions, explore each side and see which one is best
I like to believe I have a sound moral compass but I can engage in and consider socially unnacapetable schools of thought, and also behave amorally under impulse (like forcing my vegan friend to eat a cookie). If someone tells me their beliefs i don't judge them because i view this as something that can be changed. I don't judge people's characters on their beliefs, even if they're politically incorrect, I judge people on whether they believe in what they do for an sincere reason, or is it just for group approval or popularity. i look down on people that wear a generic opinion as an accessory. opinions shouldn't be decorations, they should withstand the pressure of an argument, and the person should be able to support their opinion without resorting to threats and psychological pressure
What else do you do on a daily basis? What are your interests and hobbies? Why do you do them?
I like to read, walk, listen to edm music, talk to friends, sometimes write in my diary but this can put me in a weird mood and make me dissociate. My interest right now is Socionics. My past interest was nutrition, I tried to learn everything I could about it. I like my chosen hobbies and interests to keep me in a good mood and stimulate my brain, because i feel it will be useful. I feel at my best when my brain is buzzing with things to think about.
Describe your relations with family and friends. What do you like and dislike about them?
i get along with my family. we have a democratic household. What i dislike about my mom is she is unrestrained in public, can get real fiesty with people who don't deserve it, destroy friendships with her hot temper and then i can't see those people anymore. I also dont like how much she talks, i hate having to drop out of my thoughts in order to listen to a monologue that doesn't interest me and is kind of meaningless to verbalise, since it is all really obvious stuff. i dislike when people speak outloud about plans for tomorrow or next week, just keep it to yourself. i also don't like sudden orders "DO THIS NOW", it irritates me. I am all relaxed on the couch and then I am ordered to do something. i like my brother but he is a selfish bastard and only thinks of himself. this is why i ate all the rest of his macarons, it is in exchange for all the food of mine he's hoovered in the past
My relations with my friends is stable. I like the open-mindedness of my friends and their unique individual traits and how everyone is special in their own way but sometimes some of them disappoint me when they get dragged into mainstream ideologies or political correctness which narrow freedom of thought and could be detrimental to themselves, they might turn into a robot or something that can't form an original opinion. i try to dissuade this as much as possible. i want for me and my friends to be able to talk freely about whatever we want without fear.
What do you look for in friends? In romantic relationships?
I don't really look for anything specific in friends. I like diversity. Just so long as they have good intentions and like to talk, are interesting people. I usually make the right choice in friendships, if someone is being nice to me and I can tell they are not sincere I take on the role of an introvert and don't open up to bore them so much they go away. Some of my friends assume we are closer than we are but i am only close with people once I show them my pessimistic meltdowns and they are able to handle it without being weirded out.
In romantic relationships I look for someone who I find physically attractive (this is a new requirement because i don't feel good when my libido is gone) and is grounded and calm. I don't mind if they don't share the same interests as me, actually i enjoy when someone doesn't know a lot about music or various subjects because then i can be the one to introduce them to it
Voice is important also. I like an earthy, deep, endearing voice. makes me think of someone hardworking, humble and simple
What conflicts have you encountered recently with other people? Why did they happen? Which kinds seem to happen on a regular basis?
Can't remember my last conflict, i don't like tension, and a lot of things aren't worth arguing about, they can be quickly resolved
I wouldn't consider this a conflict but the last time I had a situation where things got a bit hairy was when a politically incorrect meme I sent to a group chat opened up a can of worms and i started to be accused of many things. i like to think i don't care what other people think about me, especially if i wouldn't like them anyway, but its still unpleasant to feel like there are things out there that can be used against me and i have been slapped with a label that can make people wary or cautious of me when i really do not mean any harm
How would your friends describe you?
"Fun, funny, kind of wacky, a bit out there" , "Non judgemental and optimistic, at least outwardly. You're pessimistic and judgemental deep down, or own that streak" , "Super nice, always so cheery, easy to talk to"
What do people generally see as your strengths? What do you like about yourself?
Forgiveness, level-headed, creative, good at soothing conflicts
I don't know what i like about mice elf
What are your weaknesses? What criticism do you often face from others? What do you dislike about yourself?
Weaknesses are plenty. A big one is laziness and being a slob. I am very oblivious. A lot of details slip by me and i get in trouble (like when i was working at a health food store, when putting in stock i would put bottles that looked similar in the wrong place), I also can want to believe in something so much it becomes true. I tend to forget boundaries people have established, as well as things people have told me, I often hear, "I already told you about this" when i express amazement at something they mention because i hear things for the first time again. I also reveal too much information at times, and can be overly honest, or deliver a blatant fact about someone without softening the blow. I can be inconsiderate to others and interrupt people (but i quickly realise what ive done when i see someones face drop). I strive to fix awkward situations like this, I apologise and ask them what they said, tell them i have a bad habit of interrupting.
I also can't cook well. My dishes are experimental and then no one likes it. So now I just stick to cooking generic meals, steak, potatoes, rice, juice. Sometimes not even. Sometimes just steak and juice, like some kind of peasant.
In what areas of life can you manage well on your own? In what areas of your life would you like help?
Areas I like help in are chores, thankfully i live at home I like help with initiative, but am often be too shy to ask for it, unless someone is very close to me. I like help with food, cooking, cleaning, but i know this is too much to ask for
What things do you dislike doing? What things do you enjoy more than others?
I dislike doing things. I enjoy more than others organising stuff, arranging playlists so the end of a song flows nicely into the next, correcting peoples work, brainstorming, combining foods together like chips and icecream, cheese and orange juice. i enjoy spending money like no tomorrow
What goals, aspirations, or plans do you have for the future? How did you come to have them?
I don't know. all i have in my head for the future is an idyllic scenery and nice activities like baking sweets with my future children and having a wedding and being in peace, somewhere submerged in nature
If you had enough money to live comfortably for the rest of your life without working, what would you do with your time?
Pursue whatever interest I like, learn, teach, create, read, have children, dress them up as little elves, have them read Enid Blyton books
What traits do you find endearing that others might dislike? What traits are considered positive/neutral by others but tend to annoy you?
I find individualism endearing, when people do as they please without concern for public opinion or approval.
I am annoyed by people who draw excess attention to themselves for public approval and attention. I don't like when someone's style is their substance, their entire identity is tied to a facade or a generic archetype. I am uncomfortable when people say "This is the kind of person I am" and proceed to talk about an idealised image of themselves that couldn't be further from the truth
What kinds of things do you do to manage and/or beautify your environment (your room, your house, etc.)? What do you think of daily chores?
In my most recent room i put posters, fairy lights, furniture i found and usually plushies or figurines from video games i like. I like when my room looks like a where's wally, and I like showing people objects, telling them a short story behind it. Right now my bedroom is rather bland but I plan on making it aesthetically pleasing soon, a welcoming space, when I get the money to buy more stuff. I move around too much and lose a lot of my belongings and keep having to start fresh again. I would like a stereo too. Playing edm with my dim fairy lights on a comfy bed, I will be happy.
I don't like my daily chores and i am lucky i have an ESE mom
How do you behave around strangers?
I am friendly and open. sometimes i will ask questions. there is a girl at the bakery and i asked her "what happened to your hand?" there was a cast on it. she seemed happy someone noticed and cared. I just wanted to let her know I didn't think of her just as an automaton that cuts my bread.
How do you react to conflict? What do you do if somebody insults or attacks you?
If someone insults me i usually laugh because its regularly true + they have a lot of nerve.
If i am attacked physically i don't attack back i just ask them to stop. unless its a dude that wants to see me explode because its "funny" when i get mad, i will unleash the full compendium of my pent up fury until they accept defeat and beg for forgiveness, and so they don't do it again. How do I react to conflict, I try to quickly extinguish it and calm everyone down. I used to enjoy being the one who is disproportionately comforted in a conflict situation which i viewed as a win but now i am mature
What is one common misconception that people have about things? Explain why it is wrong.
one common misconception (that is currently being turned over its head by the paleo crowd) is that margarine is better than butter. it is not. the type of fat in margarine is full of fragile double bonds that are extremely suseptible to heat and oxygen and go rancid quick (PUFA/polyunsaturated fat/omega 6). Saturated fat in butter is stable and keeps well for longer and degrades slower exposed to heat, coconut oil even more. This is important because our heart preferentially burns fat for energy, and you do not want your heart to be burning rancid fat that is in vegetable oil and margarine. Heart disease being the number 1 killer starts to make sense when you notice that pretty much everything in the middle aisles of the grocery store contains seed oil.
What did you do last Friday?
i have no clue
