    Default How would you describe yourself?

    The title is up for interpretation.
    I was thinking about the different ways people describe themselves(and stuff in general) and how it could be linked to type.
    So, go on, tell us what it is you think best describe you and if you think it matches or clashes with your type.

    At the job, I'm a bull in a china shop

    In nature, I'm a feral cat

    Socially, I'm a bear in that I listen, growl, do charity then go into f'ing hibernation.

    Still figuring out who I am, and enneagram esp I’ve never felt the need to take it as real without understanding if any of the type apply to my core self and I haven’t come to a conclusion yet. And some general traits that prob be repeated by others wrt themselves lol, so it’s nothing new - gentle, intelligent, empathetic for the most part unless I can’t trust my own perception (unfortunately my whole life it has been undermined some way or another, and I’m just realizing I need not have been “wrong” per se all along - that it wasn’t that simple. I can sense he likes this “friend” he keeps talking about, even though he tried to get psychologically intimate with me - my friends literally don’t see it or believe “because he said something else in text messages” I show to them. He tells me he doesn’t have feelings for her even though I can feel he does. And here I am questioning if I’m just seeing things out of jealousy. Just an example.
    another good one has been callousness/lack of empathy even though I use as many words or figurative way to way to explain how much pain I am in, because people cannot “relate”; even going so far as treating me like I’m intentionally trying to be annoying or underhanded. This is how my “concept of self” developed. But there are people who have been kind to me even if a bit befuddled sometimes.)

    jeez I went on a long explanation for that trait…
    um I’ll leave it here I guess maybe add more another time.


    im purposely not trying to think about my type(s) but it was also unavoidable at times.

    Shy, quiet, introspective, internally very emotional/passionate, sweet/endearing (there’s this very specific “look” I see people in general give me), open-minded, but also stubborn sometimes. “Complex” or not easily understood at first glance but some do come around to it and begin to understand me pretty well. Hard on self (?)

    For now, perhaps temp, very loner-ish because I’ve sort of given up on close relationships. Very little will traumatize me too wrt to attachment trauma bc either I’ve already been through it or heard horror stories from other people which means I kind of “lived it” slightly within myself in that moment. Out of empathy. Other perhaps temporary qualities might include slight gullibility/suggestibility due to the same reason in my previous post (weakened sense of self due to inaccurate mirroring from many close to me).

    but yeah anyways, it has turned me cynical.

    sad. Inexpressive, likely some flat affect and both psych dx I have are correlated with reduced emotional expression.

    pretty strong on basic ethics or values I have. I don’t like complicated relationships; I want clarity and honesty. Complicated as in playing games ex: riling up jealousy, keeping something in this twilight land of friendship/romance and being “coy” or surreptitious about how much of the latter is really there. Victim/aggressor games. Part of what makes me fall in love is someone utterly honest and transparent (to me; without words). With integrity.

    A clumsy, hyper, but easily embarrassed English teacher weeb who can't decide if I'd rather LARP as a hippy shaman or a combat paramedic so I've ended up with two VERY different friend groups I hang out with lol

    In social situations I have this weird dichotomy of really wanting to be the center of attention, but also am incredibly paranoid about what others think of me, and this tends to result in my acting the comedian or just being extremely dramatic somehow and then immediately regretting whatever bold move I made and trying to redirect attention elsewhere. My interpersonal life is like this constant battle between being super private and then suddenly oversharing with some poor unsuspecting friend then later deeply regretting putting them through that and wishing I could delete their memory

    I would describe myself as anxious, shy, charismatic, paranoid, fearful, bold, friendly, warm, funny, creative, introverted, sensual, reserved, awkward, intelligent, timid, adventurous, stir-crazy, caring, good with my hands, and just totally myself.

    I know there is a couple of contradictions lol. That's the type 6 in me. You get both, just depends on the situation.

    I wonder if that’s type-related. I would struggle doing this with anyone else, and even more with myself. If I try to think about how I’d describe myself, a white void comes to mind.

    In some college class I was asked to describe myself or my identity in a few words. I froze up and I don’t think I managed to say anything; just kept stuttering and saying “I don’t know.” I’ve often tried to think about that. I still don’t know how I’d answer that/this type of question, and it’s not comfortable to think about for long.

    I wake up everyday a different person, having sacrificed consistency for what looked like truth (and therefore authenticity) at the time.

    I could write a 1000 pages on the topic and not cover everything(not really, I'm too lazy for this). It's daunting to me if I don't know what kind of information the person is looking for.
    Traits people generaly associate with me, something symbolical, a physical description since we're online, preferences, line of action, titles... there's so many things that can describe a person, and sometimes, the most telling part isn't even what is being described but how. Yeah, that is overthinking it.
    Tell me what you want and I may have an answer for you.

    One thing I think matters is that my favorite color is actually green.

    Did you know that in painting, there is a "Green Problem"?
    http://gurneyjourney.blogspot.com/20...n-problem.html

    For some reason, purely green paintings are just ugly. But paintings that are purely another color aren't, so that's weird.
    Painters find that they have to introduce other colors or undertones to the color to a green composition in order to make it visually appealing.

    I definitely agree, but boy is green beautiful in settings other than paintings.

    Interesting. I didn't know, but I can see that.
    I sometimes paint and green really isn't amongst my choices.
    The only reason I can see is how full of life green is and then, the paint looks dead.
    I find it alright in impressionism tho, I guess here's something in the movement, the fastness of execution that gives it more life. idk.
    Color's an interesting topic.

    Green is the only color that looks warm in the winter and cool in the summer.

    I appreciate each color in the spectrum (Roy G. Biv). Each tends to put me in a particular mood. A sheet of paper of apure color is pretty ace.

    I've discussed with others that colors have meaning but sometimes people are stupid & use it justify social hierarchy. Otherwise, color probably plays a role in country flags

    My guess it's a matter of personal association.

    Red could be passion ...
    Blue could be freedom
    Green could be prosperity..
    Orange could be "excitement"...

    Sometimes I'll stare at a color cause, at that moment, perhaps that's the mood I prefer.

    Blue as freedom is something I had never heard, nice.

    There's both cultural and personal sides to colors, red in Vietnam is about luck, here it's passion, danger, impulse. Red is a color that supposedly makes people want to buy stuff, orange is supposed to increase apetite(not only for food) in what I was taught in school. Tho personaly, orange and red leave me indifferent, but green can look awfully attractive so much I swear seeing it tastes something, idk what but it's alluring to say the least.
    The word "alluring" is also very green to me.
    Colors can do a lot to one's mood.
