Because I found my type by myself, I never got to answer these type of questionnaire. But I thought maybe you guys could use some of the questions to help me spot my DCNH subtype. Or you can suggest a different type altogether, why not.
What are your values, and why?
Theyíve evolved but, at this point, kindness and true understanding of other people. If not for compassion, at least to understand how we are connected to others and those that came before. We are all grasping here at something in the dark to conceive existance and the most intelligent of us still fail to distil something meaningful that laymen have hadnít figured out before. At least donít turn a blind to the reality of suffering. I mention this because I think Iím sometimes very gulty of dwelling too much in my artificial cocoon.
What else do you do on a daily basis? What are your interests and hobbies? Why do you do them?
I like taking strolls, meditating, reading on something that caught my attention and just do something else 10 minutes later. Singing. Contemplating natural beauty. I like being transported to other places with music or films, run them in my mind after the primary experience is finished, see if I learn something about human emotion or the particular world a piece of music encapsulates. They are like a proxy to life only you regulate everything.
Describe your relations with family and friends. What do you like and dislike about them?
My family is made up of people with good judgement. What I dislike is that, beneath the peacefulness, over the years many of my relatives have lived under the foot of someone else in the family. I donít like people who have no consideration of how their imposing behaviour can squash other peopleís self-development and well-being.
What do you look for in friends? In romantic relationships?
Friendship for me can mean being close to an energetic and competent individual. Or a shy and introverted person with whom I can then regulate the relationship in a way that I find convenient depending how social Iím feeling at a certain period. An open attitude is a must.
Peak romantic interests are obvious extroverts that are approachable yet competent and clever in the world in a way that Iím not. What I want in a relationship is to have fun, excitement and the least amount of serious drama possible.
What conflicts have you encountered recently with other people? Why did they happen? Which kinds seem to happen on a regular basis? I generally get along with people. I guess obvious attempts to control me or the level of hypocrisy people display in their assessments of bigger issues have always been too much for my tolerance.
How would your friends describe you?
ďNiceĒ. ďIntelligentĒ is another word that comes up (but I believe people have strange ideas of what intelligence is). Others have stated that they see me as a detached person who is calmly looking at pandemonium go down with a cigarette in the corner her mouth.
What do people generally see as your strengths? What do you like about yourself?
That I have a live and let live attitude. Sometimes not.
What are your weaknesses? What criticism do you often face from others? What do you dislike about yourself?
That Iím flimsy and inconsistent. That I can be lazy and donít like any physical efforts. That I show no enthusiasm with every day affairs and that these completly drain my energies. That Iím constantly forgetting about things. Thatís what I get from people. A personal criticism: I get overwhelmed by too many things to do.
Something I have always disliked is how, contrasted to personalities I find fascinating because they understand their wants and express their preferences loudly, I am like a black hole that just absorbs experiences and wants more and cherish them but there is not light coming out so no visible personalized statements about who I am or what I like.
In what areas of life can you manage well on your own? In what areas of your life would you like help?
Iím good at interacting with people (up to a point) and Iím bad at interacting with serious work-related reality.
What goals, aspirations, or plans do you have for the future? How did you come to have them?
Iím in the talks to set up a small company with a friend (think 3 people in a garage type of business) . Itís been a long time coming because itís time I stopped working for others. For he future I have the fantasy of traveling the world or reaching Enlightment to acquire the most sophisticated understanding of existance and contentment before my time is up. Hey, maybe shacking up with a dual.
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?
Iím arranging a meditation corner with an altar and I light incense or play with colors but itís minimal really. I hate daily chores but so do most people.
How do you behave around strangers?
Iím friendly. I sometimes I politely ask questions and cringe internally because then I have to pretend Iím interested in listening to the answer.
How do you react to conflict? What do you do if somebody insults or attacks you?
If the person is not too close to me I put on a mask of how the whole business of attacking people is silly and beneath me. But deep down many times Iíll be seething with all their moral shortcomings (of which I hadnít muttered word until them). Iím learning to let go now and just give it to them. If they are someone close to me. Well, theyíd better run for their lives. Or they can hit me in the ground because they come to me at a time Iím already down. There is no real consistency here.
What is one common misconception that people have about things? Explain why it is wrong.
Only because Iíve seen it come up here: that people do art with their base function. Itís probably more of a process really.
What did you do last Friday?
I probably spent the night getting my computer ready with all the necessary for my new company/project to be. It feels nice getting things like these done, itís like getting the feeling of moving forward I so crave.
