Title: Personality types
Post by: NeeNee on January 31, 2013, 08:26:17 PM
It's not like I didn't know most of this already, but still, it's nice when someone explains it for you. :))
http://www.carlkingdom.com/10-myths-about-introverts

EDIT:
Has anyone ever taken a Jung/Briggs Myers/Keirsey personality test (http://www.humanmetrics.com/cgi-win/JTypes2.asp)? They distinguish 16 types of personalities, based on 4 different axes. Each type gets its own description, which you can find here (http://www.keirsey.com/4temps/overview_temperaments.asp) and here (http://www.typelogic.com/). (Hint: Take the test first before looking at the results, since it might influence the way you read the questions.)

Of course, it won't work for everyone, but I think it's interesting to see how far your alleged personality type matches your actual personality. One question can change your score, so take a look at the neighbouring types too, perhaps you will find that one of them suits you better. :)

Yargh.

I do think he's overloading introverts and autism spectrum. I have ran into people who are literally sensitive to chaos around them. I sorta am, but not to a huge degree. My autistic colleague is so sensitive that she has to get out of a crowd fast. It is likely connected to reactivity and emotional feedback.

I'm pretty sure being introverted just means that you prefer a low-key social life to a dynamic social life.

There's nothing more or less special. I still see mental disorder as mental disorder. So it means you're more susceptible to flights of insight and intelligence. It also means you're more susceptible to flights of emotion and rage. It's a disability, not a superpower.

It was hilarious to read while listening to  this song (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HrMRmEeCfJM).

^ I don't really get what you're saying, but I sure as hell hope you're not calling being introvert a mental disability, because I'd take that as a personal insult.

FYI, here's a short description of the recognised disorders in the autism spectrum:

Quote from: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Autism_spectrum
Autism is characterized by delays or abnormal functioning before the age of three years in one or more of the following domains: (1) social interaction; (2) communication; and (3) restricted, repetitive, and stereotyped patterns of behavior, interests, and activities.[9]
 
Asperger syndrome can be distinguished from autism by the lack of delay or deviance in early language development.[9] Additionally, individuals with Asperger syndrome do not have significant cognitive delays. Other symptoms include repetitive routines or rituals, peculiarities in speech and language, inappropriate affect or social behavior, problems with non-verbal communication, and clumsy or uncoordinated motor movements.[10]
 
PDD-NOS is considered "subthreshold autism" and "atypical autism" because it is often characterized by milder symptoms of autism or symptoms in only one domain (such as social difficulties).[11] Persons with PDD-NOS may demonstrate pervasive deficits in the development of reciprocal social interaction or stereotyped behaviors, but do not meet the criteria for a specific pervasive developmental disorder or other psychological disorders (such as schizophrenia or avoidant personality disorder).[9]

Yes, I do hate chaos. Yes, I need to get away from crowds. I fit every single description giving in that article. But unless you consider not liking to party all night as an abnormality in social interaction, none of them have anything to do with the actual symptomes of autism or Asperger.

As for the 'more susceptible to flights of insight and intelligence, but also more susceptible to flights of emotion and rage', I have no idea where you even got that. There's nothing like that in the article, nor in any other description of introvert I've read. I don't recognise myself in it either; while I do have 'aha'-experiences sometimes, they are usually the result of a long thinking proces, not 'flights'. For the second part, it works even less, as I'm a pretty controled person. Of course I get mad sometimes, but it's nowhere near above average, and it takes a lot to get me yelling.

tl;dr: Of course being introvert is not a superpower (where did he even say that?), but you shouldn't be so fast to call people disabled. And no, it's not the same as being low-key, I can be extremely outgoing with friends - for a limited amount of time.

You misread me. That's why I said the author is overloading terms. Basically, the author is conflating a select few autism spectrum disorder symptoms with introverted behaviors.

So did I. But that doesn't mean it qualifies as a diagnosis for anything. Introverted behavior is simply focusing a little more internally versus externally.

The site is like a fortune-teller or a horoscope - the words are intended to make people think that it qualifies them under the guise that it makes you special.

Quote

You mistake me. There are some people who literally cannot handle parties. I don't like parties but I can attend them. My autistic colleague can't. She can't take the sensory overload and goes into a form of breakdown or shutdown. That's where there is a literal inability to handle it.

Quote
As for the 'more susceptible to flights of insight and intelligence, but also more susceptible to flights of emotion and rage', I have no idea where you even got that.

I was talking about emotional disorders there, actually. I'm sorry if I sounded like I was generalizing a group. But I have observed this in schizophrenic and autistic cases. I was speaking to a movement that wants to make a mental disorder into a superpower to overcome the disappointment of having a real structural defect.

There's nothing like that in the article,

Quote from: Article

Not officially. But lately I’m starting to be OK with viewing myself that way. However, if this list fits the description of Autism / Asperger Syndrome, then it would seem there is a very large population of women with Autism / Asperger Syndrome out there. I get a lot of daily thank you emails from “seemingly neuro-typical” moms and grandmothers telling me how perfectly my list described them. But I’m no expert. I personally suspect that if more people had Autism / Asperger Syndrome, the world would be a better place. Check out Wrong Planet. Kudos to them!

Yes. Yes there was.

Oi. This is because the site used weasel words in an attempt to lure you into a sense of "oh, I fit all the criterion, I must be an introvert". First, I prefer a preponderance of evidence with references to support that. Second, I dislike how overgeneral the wording is.

I dislike parties. I have a select few friends. I consider myself to be individualistic. I pay attention to myself mainly. I am blunt and sarcastic and can't do social pleasantries to save my bacon.

But I participate in parties and get-togethers (and hate it, but I have no flipping choice). I technically have many colleagues. I don't appear to be individualistic to people because challenging their paradigms is like slicing my knee in a shark tank. I try to avoid being blunt and sarcastic because sometimes I am too sharp or the other person is too sensitive. I will imitate the social pleasantries and adapt.

The website is too broad. It can't handle complexity. It lures people into a false sense of belonging to a made-up group.

Uniqueness is a combo of heritage, chance, experiences and choices. Not just because you are an introvert. Not just because I am a university student.

I thought it was meant to clear up some misconceptions about introverts. Because that's what he does. Because many people really think that everyone who doesn't like parties must be shy or awkward or whatever.

Yes, and that's why she has an actual disorder and 'normal' introverts don't.

That was exactly my point: there are no actual symptomes of autism or Asperger in the article, because having autism and being introvert is not the same thing.

Again, being introvert is not a disorder. You are confusing two completely different things here.

You'll have to be more specific, because I don't see it.

Where does it mention 'flights of insight and intelligence'? Where are the 'flights of emotion and rage'? The only thing he's saying is that if he has Asperger, loads of seemingly normal woman ('neuro-typical' means normal, btw) would have it too.

Congratulations, you're an introvert.

What, are you surprised? 25% of the population are introverts. On internet forums, this is easily 50% (75% if this little test (http://forums.avatarspirit.net/index.php?topic=17383.0) is to be believed). Given the few things I know about you, I would've been highly surprised if you were extrovert.

And no, that doesn't mean there's anything wrong with you. I don't know why you hate so much being called an introvert - it's just a rough indication of personality. Like you said, simply focusing a little more internally versus externally, and having some things in common like a distaste of parties and small talk.

Like I said, I don't see anything wrong with calling myself an introvert. It has about as much value as calling myself a cat-lover.

I do agree the author overdoes it a bit with the polarisation, but that doesn't prevent his descriptions/explanations of introvert behaviour are pretty good. That's why I quoted the article in the first place.

The explanation of introverts by describing dopamine sensitivity. I really don't think that's it. Again - the chemical explanation makes far more sense for a severe case, like my autistic colleague. Thus my conclusion.

Also the statistic that 25% of people are introverts. I doubt that. The statistic sounds more apropos for mild to severe mental illnesses in a population.

At the risk of sounding like a petulant child, the article did that first. They gave a disorder rationale. I lean towards the null hypothesis - that there's a confluence of factors that determines this, and not just one ridiculous line of argument that cross-correlates more with honest-to-god people with disorders than a wide swath of people who think similarly.

The correlation between introvert/extravert and sensitivity to dopamine has been known for a few decades (here's an article from 1998 (http://psycnet.apa.org/journals/epp/3/1/37/)). I'm not saying that's the only reason, but it's not like he's just making stuff up.

I think something occuring in 25% of the population is common enough to be considered normal.

Because only disorders have a biological explanation and the rest of our behaviour hasn't?

The scientific fields of Sociobiology (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sociobiology), Behavioral neuroscience (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Behavioral_neuroscience), Evolutionary psychology (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Evolutionary_psychology) and Human behavioral ecology (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Human_behavioral_ecology) (among others) beg to differ.

True. I think it's a honorable goal by itself though.

As for the bad science, he's just repeating what others have said. I don't think you can really blame him.

No, they didn't. Saying that someone is different from the majority does not equal calling them disabled. That's like saying that all black people must have skin disorder because their skin doesn't function the same way as in white folks.

It's perfectly possible to have two different ways of thinking that are both fuctional, especially when we're talking about a difference in gradation rather than structure. Think of it as a continuum:

ADHD (can't get enough stimuli; dopamine-deficient (http://adhd.web.unc.edu/the-dopamine-mechanism)) _____ extravert (likes a lot of stimuli; low-sensitive) _____ introvert (doesn't like a lot of stimuli; high-sensitive) _____ autist (can't handle a lot of stimuli; oversensitive (http://www.livestrong.com/article/492284-dopamine-and-autism/))

Introverts are definitely closer to the right side of the personality spectrum. But just like not everyone who likes parties has ADHD, not everyone who likes being alone is an autist. It's only called a disorder when it's seriously impairing your ability to function in society, and for most introverts that's not the case.

(Note: I'm not saying that dopamine abnormalities are the only reasons for ADHD and autism; there are many. But at least in some cases, it plays a role.)

I was going by the most commonly accepted definitions - the kind you find in dictionaries and on Wikipedia (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Extraversion_and_introversion).

It's true that the definitions have changed a little over time, but the basic idea is still the same, and I think most people can relatively easily qualify themselves as more introvert or more extrovert (unless they fall right in the middle, then it's called ambivert).

I see. Personally, I rather enjoy personality type test, I think it's fun to see if they get it right. Being an introvert (;D), I like thinking about my own way of thinking, and analyses like this help me with that. (I considered myself an introvert long before I read this article, btw. But I really like the way he countered some of the 'myths'.)

I first took the test some years ago, but I'm still in the Mastermind category (INTJ). Which is funny, because I don't work hard at all. :)) Some of the other aspects fit me to a T though, like wanting people to make sense, and prefering to stay in the background until others 'demonstrate their inability to lead', at which point I will be very tempted to step up and do it myself (it's been like that since I was a kid. None of the other types mention it, curiously). I can recognize myself in some points of the Architect description too, but the overall picture doesn't fit as well.

True. That's why I said the type could differ depending on how you answer the questions.

I once tried going throught the filled-in test again and changing all the questions that were kind of dubious. I still got INTJ, but just barely (my J-value had fallen from 56% to 1%, which almost made me INTP. Since there are also some aspects of INTP that fit me, I suppose it makes sense).

I'm actually surprised my type is so consistent, I thought it would be much easier to change. It's probably because my values were kinda high to begin with. I suppose most people can end up with different types depending on their mood, and the 'truth' will be somewhere in between.

Quote
Honestly: it scores what we wish we were but really aren't.
I don't know about you, but I aswered all questions honestly without looking at the results first. There are also quite a few answers that I'm not proud of, so no, I was most definitely not going for what I wanted to be.

I'm not sure how you came to that conclusion. Also, keep in mind that internet tests aren't really 'science', even if they are based on scientific principles.

You must really fall somewhere in between, then. I don't believe there are only 16 kinds of people in the world, so some people must not fit any type. A Schizophrenic is kinda extreme, though. :P

Though, frankly, this one asks questions that describe exactly what I do [and that is also the reason for me having 102 points on this]. It's kinda creepy. If I wanted to indulge on these things, maybe I'd go see a doctor and have my head checked, but it's just nothing serious and I'm a bit afraid I might end up with someone saying I have a mental disorder.

There you go: http://www.schizoid.info/
Though, frankly, this one asks questions that describe exactly what I do [and that is also the reason for me having 102 points on this]. It's kinda creepy. If I wanted to indulge on these things, maybe I'd go see a doctor and have my head checked, but it's just nothing serious and I'm a bit afraid I might end up with someone saying I have a mental disorder. [Well, half the people in my class say that I must have one...]
But I also think that those questions are kinda normal things...

W00t! I am predisposed to schizophrenia! XD :))

Quote
    Your points: 65.
    A normal result is 15 to 65 points.

Your result is beyond the range of normal values.
 
This does not mean that you are definitely at risk for schizophrenia. It is possible that your lifestyle has specific effects on your mind, and this, in turn, distorts the result.
You should analyze the factors that, in your opinion, could have a decisive influence on such a high result on the test. In the future, these factors may cause irreversible changes in personality, which can lead to pathologies.
It appears that you may have a predisposition to addiction - smoking, alcohol or gambling. It is important to understand that this test does not measure many of the physiological factors that have a decisive influence on the result of diagnosis. At the same time, if you honestly answered all the questions, the test result gives you a reason to think about your lifestyle and to learn more about your own personality.
 
In general, you are more prone to schizophrenia than 25067 people who have passed the test in the last 30 days.

Those 25067 people must really love their work. ::) (Isn't it interesting how it only mentions a number and not a percentage? Now I'm wondering how many people who have passed the test in the last 30 days are more prone to schizophrenia than me.)

The result is even a little higher when I set the age as under 18. I don't think this test is very reliable... I mean, I can see myself having a whole range of mental conditions (from depression to autism), but schizophrenia isn't one of them.

(The 'inner voice' and torturing animals questions were kinda alarming though. Did you score high on those? Else you might consider seeing someone after all.)

EDIT:
The third time I had 64 points. The description there actually makes more sense to me:
Quote
    Your points: 64.
    A normal result is 15 to 65 points.

Your result is at the top of the range of normal values. This may reflect the possible negative tendencies in the future due to the intensification of the effects on your personality of the factors which influence you are exposed to in your daily life.
This result also shows that you are most likely exposed to excessive mental stress. It may be that your body has accumulated a lot of fatigue, and you need to get rid of it. You appear to have no predisposition to schizophrenia.

Yeah, I figured that. As if getting rid of it was that easy.

EDIT2:
I tried to replicate your result, VacuumTan, and the highest I could get without giving answers I'd consider worrisome is 91. 102 is really, really high... I don't mean to worry you further, but it's possible you're spending too much time alone.

I wondered why it was the number of people, too. Oh well. Under my result, it said 76 thousand something. So, assuming that my 102 points are kinda high, the percentage for your outcome probably is around 30%.
(The 'inner voice' and torturing animals questions were kinda alarming though. Did you score high on those? Else you might consider seeing someone after all.)

I don't even get the 'inner voice'-thing. If it's about thinking about your options every time a lot and looking at it from many different viewpoints, then that one might be higher than the 'occasionally' I answered because I didn't know what that question meant in the first place.
The one with the animals, though, I admit that I said I didn't mind them. Hell, I wouldn't go looking up such stuff, that's disgusting, but I don't throw rage-fits whenever someone finds it funny to post Zippocat. I just ignore that stuff or shrug it off as 'whatever'-worthy.

Well, that might be so. I'm not denying that, since there's no point to that.
I admit that I have a lot of irrational fears, one of them being that I'm straight out wrong in every way.

'Inner voice' means that it's like a second person is commenting on your thoughts - sort of like the metaphorical angel on your shoulder who's telling you that you can't do that. As if two people inside of you are arguing with each other.

That's good. I find that a lot of irrational fears will go away when you get more confident in dealing with people.

You're still young, so you have the right to be insecure. Just don't lock yourself up, because (in my experience) that's only gonna make things worse.

Also, you can't possibly be wrong about everything.

INFJ.
Really? That's a surprise. I was expecting you to be either INTJ or INTP.

I got a score very close to average for each. The problem with the T versus F classification is that I have been raised to learn that your thinking and feeling coexist to give purpose. My feelings give me the motivation for a problem to solve. My thoughts give me which problem I can solve. I still care a lot but I can maintain detachment. It's hard to tell which I developed later, since this has been the case as far back as I remember.

Quote
How ridiculous. I don't know. I just find it ridiculous since it's scoring me in a silly manner. All the questions appear disconnected, and my answer to most seems to be "depends on the circumstance".
True. That's why I said the type could differ depending on how you answer the questions.

That's obvious. I think I'd get a different score if I took the test after writing a paper or finishing a homework, after sending important work emails, or after mediating a dispute.

Quote
Honestly: it scores what we wish we were but really aren't.
I don't know about you, but I aswered all questions honestly without looking at the results first. There are also quite a few answers that I'm not proud of, so no, I was most definitely not going for what I wanted to be.

It's easy to infer what they're testing. And even your not-so-proud-of parts are shaped by what you want to be.

NN, thanks for letting me know that psych really is a crackpot science.

Well, you can't take these things too serious anyways. Maybe one or two things with that whole result-thing could be fitting, but that's it. According to these totally professional tests on the internet I'm a Schizophrenic beyond repair, too.

Haha. I got 67. Normal range is 15-65. It seems to peripherally test depression, which is why I think I got remotely above normal. E.g. sometimes I want to hole myself up in my room, but usually it's when I feel abnormally depressed.

True that schizophrenia does induce depression. But schizo is a clearcut illness characterized by auditory or visual hallucinations (e.g. alternate voices in your head, suddenly see somebody in your room) and paranoia (e.g. an honest belief that someone is stealing your printer toner).

The test doesn't account for anyone who has built up safe behavioral protocols to address some of the problems. For example, erratic pacing can be dealt with by simply forcing yourself onto the task. If you're used to doing that to combat the deterioration, how would you answer? Also, mental illness can sometimes be genetically linked - particularly schizophrenia.

I am a kind of shy person because I am very weird and I am unsure how people will react until I get to know them. Therefore I am mostly quite with strangers (unless I have been drinking).

Try doing as I did, take the test twice to cover both extremes (the first time, when in doubt, you pick the 'lazy' answer, and the second time you pick the other one. It's easy with this test because you can go back and your answers will still be there). That should give you a better idea of the where you are on the spectrum, even though the results will probably fall into different types.

I kind of find stuff like this interesting and I've actually done that kind of test several times before. I typically come out on those as INTP atho a few times I've leaned a little more to INFP. I can actually relate to both pretty well.

for the schizoid test I got a 56, altho I think some lingering affects from my e. coli induced hospitalization a few years back upped it a bit (the more virulent strains produce shiga toxins which do affect the brain, some kinds more than others), as well as past emotional trauma caused by an ex-friend and her former Marine (now ex but then current) husband stalking me for a prolonged period of time. I'm pretty sure some of the paranoia that's caused in me overlaps with some schizoid tendencies. there may be a minor case of PTSD involved with that as well and that could have some overlap as well. (I know when I found out a supervisor at the last job I had who I hated had an ex stalking her I instantly went into overprotective mode AND panic mode and both to a level out of normal character for me plus my general paranoia level upped quite a bit for a while afterwords.)

^I have been Tomboy from early on - I hated barbies, instead wanted Bionicles (those legos for boys) and played with dinosaurs. I have A huge dinosaur toy collection left because of that...
But maybe I have some secret girliness in me I don't know xD got 16% when I redid the quiz... Still quite High procent~

Post by: DemonicFlame on April 24, 2014, 07:07:51 PM
I never had any barbies and I was always playing the PlayStation or just going outside on the swings or doing whatever my little brother was doing. But yeah, never got into "girly" stuff, it just never appealed to me I guess.

Post by: themoonlandian on April 24, 2014, 07:14:11 PM
I had girl toys from my mom, but I catered to my toy cars and dragons and Yu-Gi-Oh cards and such xD
Still got some of my lovely toy cars and one of those Mega Blocks dragons that came from the egg hehe <3
I loved Bionicles but I wasn't allowed to get them for myself. ;A; Luckily 95% of my friends were guys back then x'D

My mom really wants me to be girly, and I never really have; it's to the point she fights me to attempt to get me to be more ''feminine''. I think she's upset since most people said when I was younger it'd be a phase, but I haven't seem to've grown out of it. And now with me wanting to cosplays guys she's really getting upset.

Oh, just the same here Moon! With my room full on fan stuff and figures my mom complains that 'your room looks like A little boy's' and she is still embarrassed/reluctant to show others our cosplays - she tells her friends I cosplay and show some parts of my cosplays, but she doesn't like I always cosplay A guy. xDD 'are you male again, isn't there any female clothes ou could make?' She asks time to time. so you are not alone! ^^
Title: Re: Personality types
Post by: NeeNee on April 24, 2014, 09:25:38 PM
My mom never cared. She hardly ever wears make-up or dresses herself (my aunt is the same, too), and she never had a problem buying me dinosaurs or whatever. She was actually happy that I would wear whatever she bought for me as long as it wasn't too frilly, because shopping for clothes isn't her thing either.

I don't really consider myself a tomboy though, because I was never really interested in typical 'boy stuff' either. But for some reason, not acting overly feminine is equated to being masculine, which is... really quite odd, since I'm certainly not very manly either.

You Are 60% Boyish and 40% Girlish
You are pretty evenly split down the middle - a total eunuch.
Okay, kidding about the eunuch part. But you do get along with both sexes.
You reject traditional gender roles. However, you don't actively fight them.
You're just you. You don't try to be what people expect you to be.

The questions are pretty lame, but at least the description makes sense.

Btw, how come the word 'boyish' only seems to be used for girls?

^Some of the quiz questions are unfair when it is "Yes or no" - like "do you fear (not the verb but can't remember the right one..) cockrouches and lizards" Cockroaches, yes but lizard are cute *___*
But absolute questions are really unfair, I am mostly in middle and then have just to choose -.-



1) You Are 20% Boyish and 80% Girlish

"Even if you're not a girl, you're very feminine.
You're in touch with your feelings, and your heart rules you.
A bit of a emotional roller coaster, one moment you're up and the next you're down.
But no matter what, you try to be as cute and perky as possible."



2) Androgynous

"Congratulations! you are the best of both worlds. you my friend are androgynous. you reject societal gender laws and you take the route you're most comfortable with. in my opinion, you're the freest and most well adjusted. don't think about how many people question your birth sex because it really doesn't matter. just be yourself and keep those closest to you by your side."



3) You Are 65% Feminine, 35% Masculine

"You are in touch with your feminine side.
Sensitive, intuitive, and caring are all words that describe you.
You tend to go with how you feel. You trust your intuition.
And you're just masculine enough to relate to both men and women."



4) Your score is 32 %. You are Feminine.

Errr... 32% of what?



5) For 50 % you are: You are the feminine type!

"You worry about getting your latest fashions dirty or you hate to try new things! You are very girlie and are very peppy! You love to chill with your BFF's."



6) Your thinking is 50 % Masculine and 50 % Feminine

"You have a Balanced Masculine and Feminine Thinking
You have the best of both and masculine and feminine ways of thinking. You are very balanced and are sensitive and practical at the right times. You are very adaptive and flexible to different situations. You also like making friends of both the sexes."

^ If you feel like the questions are too vague, try answering them all one way (for example, answer them like you would be in a particularly careless/lazy/happy mood), check your type, then go back and change the questions where the other answer could also apply. There's a good chance you'll get two different type that way, and it'll give you a better idea of where you are on the spectrum.

Your Stress Sources
"Feels empty and isolated from others and wishes to overcome this feeling. Believes life has more to offer him than what he was experienced thus far, and doesn't want to miss out on anything. He purses all his goals and dreams, fearful that any missed opportunity will cause him to miss out on even more. Quickly becomes an expert in any field he pursues and can sometimes come off as overbearing and nosy."
Your Restrained Characteristics
Current events leave him feeling forced into compromise in order to avoid being cut off from affection or future cooperation.

"Although he is able to find contentment through sexual activity, he feels hopeless to change his problems and difficulties and continues to make the best of what he has."
Conceited and is easily insulted. Holds back emotionally but is able to find satisfaction through sexual activity.

You should. This one is a total hoax.
I should say the coincidence is scary, not the test is scary.
Though the fact the test was so simple adds to the shock. XD

Reading it a second time, it's not as accurate as I first thought.
But it's acurate enough to not make me want to laugh.

I continuously change homes and jobs. I can't stay in a relationship.
Because of how I am, I always end up screwing up and leave.
I have some rare qualities but some rare flaws too.
It's easy for me to start a new life because people usually loves me.
But when they see my flaws they want me to change.
Though I don't want to change and I can't change even if I wanted to.
Then I screw up. And more I try to fix things more I destroy them.
So I leave.
But I'm okay. I enfoy life, that's all that matters.

I usually laugh at these tests because I'm a person who his emotionally detached and always feels on my own.
So no matter what they say about my emotions and relations they will always be wrong.
Unless they say I "feel empty and isolated", "hold back emotionally" and "accomplish things on my own, with little to no help from others".

That I "feel forced into compromise in order to avoid being cut off from affection or future cooperation".

Also, I know it's pretty generic but it's true I "feel hopeless to change my problems and difficulties" but "continues to make the best of what I have" and "don't allow myself to be overcome with negative thoughts or self-doubt" so I "take life head on" with a "highly optimistic and outgoing personality".

Well, here comes the power of procrastination!

ISTP
Introvert(78%)  Sensing(25%)  Thinking(38%)  Perceiving(11%)
You have strong preference of Introversion over Extraversion (78%)
You have moderate preference of Sensing over Intuition (25%)
You have moderate preference of Thinking over Feeling (38%)
You have slight preference of Perceiving over Judging (11%)

LoL I'm the only ISTP here apparently. Some of the questions I think I get sidetracked because I "behave" differently whether I'm at work or at home. For example, my room is a huge mess while my work area at work is always kept neat and tidy and well stocked, because I hate to not have something ready when I need it.

And no, I'm nowhere near a crafter.

Quote
http://www.schizoid.info/

 Your points: 66.
    A normal result is 15 to 65 points.

Your result is beyond the range of normal values.

This does not mean that you are definitely at risk for schizophrenia. It is possible that your lifestyle has specific effects on your mind, and this, in turn, distorts the result.
You should analyze the factors that, in your opinion, could have a decisive influence on such a high result on the test. In the future, these factors may cause irreversible changes in personality, which can lead to pathologies.
It appears that you may have a predisposition to addiction - smoking, alcohol or gambling. It is important to understand that this test does not measure many of the physiological factors that have a decisive influence on the result of diagnosis. At the same time, if you honestly answered all the questions, the test result gives you a reason to think about your lifestyle and to learn more about your own personality.

In general, you are more prone to schizophrenia than 43892 people who have passed the test in the last 30 days.

I think a few of these questions land in the "in depends" category. For example, the question about animal being tortured... It depends on the definition. For example, if I'm watching Food Factory (shows how food is processed) I wouldn't feel emotional about watching meat being processed. But if I'm watching a wildlife documentary or whatever where small animals are getting chased and eaten by big animals, then yes I'd feel a little upset. So... what is "torture"? And really, why would I purposely look up pictures/videos on animal torture when I can read yaoi instead- *gets bricked* But yes, I definitely do find those human purposefully torturing animals videos disgusting that I don't even want to look at them. I also don't watch horror movies because I find them frightening.

As for the inner voice one... I'm not exactly sure what it is. Like, when I analyze a problem in a head I usually have different thoughts popping up from different perspectives, some of them can be irrational and upsetting, bringing up the "what if's". But is that "inner voice"?

I'm definitely "running away" from the important work of "studying" and lurking here doing random personality tests instead. LOL

As for the music one, I have been listening to anisongs for ages before I started learning Japanese. So I definitely don't have a problem not understanding lyrics of a song... in fact, the reason why I don't listen to most English songs is because I find a lot of the lyrics to be dumb... (no offense to anybody)

And I'm beyond amused by the fact that I'm exactly one point above "normal" XD
I must say though, aside from the fact that I hate to exercise, my lifestyle is a lot healthier than a lot of people I meet and work with. I do not smoke, drink, or gamble. The only issue I have is that I buy a lot of anime goods and doujinshis and I'm running out of space to put them in my room, which my mom complains about...

"Feels empty and isolated from others and wishes to overcome this feeling. Believes life has more to offer her than what she was experienced thus far, and doesn't want to miss out on anything. she purses all her goals and dreams, fearful that any missed opportunity will cause her to miss out on even more. Quickly becomes an expert in any field she pursues and can sometimes come off as overbearing and nosy."

Your Restrained Characteristics

Current events leave her feeling forced into compromise in order to avoid being cut off from affection or future cooperation.

Emotionally distant even from those closest to her.

Feels trapped in a helpless situation and is desperately seeking relief. she is able to find pleasure and happiness in sexual activity.

"Feels she is carry more than her share of problems. she is flexible and laid back, sticking to her goals and working to overcome any difficulty."

"Feels trapped in a helpless situation and is desperately seeking relief. she is able to find pleasure and happiness in sexual activity, as long as there is not a lot of conflict or emotional difficulty."

Your Desired Objective

"Always trying to make a good impression on others, and is constantly watching to see if she is succeeding in this. Is interested in how others react to him; this makes her feel in control. Strategically plans out ways to gain further influence over others and special recognition. Is easily distracted by the pleasingly beautiful and original."

Your Actual Problem

Fears others will try to hold her back from achieving her goals and the things she wants. Puts on the charm and can be manipulative towards others hoping she can get them to do as she wishes and making it easier for her to reach her own goals.

Your Actual Problem #2

Longs the freedom to make her own decisions and plans without the criticism and restrictions of others. Uses her charm to deal with others and get what she wants.

...what charm?? This one is probably the least accurate than the rest of the tests...

Gender roles be dammed, you like to do things your way.

Okay, kidding about the eunuch part. But you do get along with both sexes.
You reject traditional gender roles. However, you don't actively fight them.
You're just you. You don't try to be what people expect you to be.

Congratulations! you are the best of both worlds. you my friend are androgynous. you reject societal gender laws and you take the route you're most comfortable with. in my opinion, you're the freest and most well adjusted. don't think about how many people question your birth sex because it really doesn't matter. just be yourself and keep those closest to you by your side.

You're a Tech Addict
You love your technology, and it loves you back.

Life is all about having the best tech for you. You want a top of the range experience, whether it comes with a hefty price tag or a hundred hours spent building it yourself. You like to be connected to the web wherever you find yourself in the world and can't get enough of the latest gadget news and rumours.

You love to get things done. You're practical, reliable, and don't let things get in your way. You like life to run really smoothly for you and all your friends and family. If they're happy, then you're happy too. And key to this happiness is knowing where you stand - you value facts, honesty and frank opinions.

You know what you want, and you know where to find it... on your favourite wiki!

...don't know how I ended up with tech addict when I have picked laptops but NONE of the handheld gadgets. And I picked lots of books (because manga wasn't an option). Hm.

I did the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator's test again, because I was half dead last time and didn't pay attention to the percentages... So, here, if anyone's interested.
Quote
ESFP
Extravert(100%)  Sensing(12%)  Feeling(50%)  Perceiving(67%)
You have strong preference of Extraversion over Introversion (100%)
You have slight preference of Sensing over Intuition (12%)
You have moderate preference of Feeling over Thinking (50%)
You have distinct preference of Perceiving over Judging (67%)
I got 100% Extravert... Which seems like a problem. XD


I think a few of these questions land in the "in depends" category. For example, the question about animal being tortured... It depends on the definition. For example, if I'm watching Food Factory (shows how food is processed) I wouldn't feel emotional about watching meat being processed. But if I'm watching a wildlife documentary or whatever where small animals are getting chased and eaten by big animals, then yes I'd feel a little upset. So... what is "torture"?
That's strange how it's the complete opposite to me.
I have no problem with hunting in the wild but think food factories are inhuman and actually made me think we should redefine that word.

Even though I'm probably one of the rare person who watched Earthlings (http://earthlings.com/?page_id=32) while eating beef ramen.

Quote
And really, why would I purposely look up pictures/videos on animal torture when I can read yaoi instead- *gets bricked* But yes, I definitely do find those human purposefully torturing animals videos disgusting that I don't even want to look at them. I also don't watch horror movies because I find them frightening.
To be informed(?)

There is a test that tells you your Dragon Age Inquisition Character Class. (http://dragonage.wikia.com/wiki/Dragon_Age:_Inquisition_Personality_Quiz?utm_source=General&utm_medium=Social%20Media&utm_campaign=Hootsuite)

Not exactly the same thing, but this site claims to be able to deduce your identity from 15 random questions.

https://inti.io/oilsjtanalytica/

Two wrong guesses and then my forum name. That's not bad, I guess? Then again, this is exactly why I never use my real name online.

It just finds your google account's name (or youtube), since I only use that name there. That's like the games which use your pc name to scare you, like DokiDoki.
