      What's your personality?

      This thread is for people who don't want to wade through the awkwardness of hoping others will understand them from the tiny, situationally based snippets they see. So feel free to describe yourself as you see yourself!

      Everything works out in the end, sometimes even badly.

      My purpose of coming to DV has been to run away from myself and find myself in the process, to make peace with myself so that I can stop winning over myself at the cost of losing the battle with myself, to ask myself about myself because I have an insufficient understanding of myself and yet I am the one who understands me best, to acknowledge that it is perfectly normal to be as crazy as I am, and to stop taking myself seriously and in the process come to deep and profound insights about myself.

      I am a body and a brain that has been conditioned since birth and conditioned by my genetics and my diet to have a personality. This personality is kind of shy, likes to laugh, gets annoyed by unnecessary noise made by people slamming doors and stomping around unconsciously, likes plenty of alone down-time. But that is just this body that was born and will die. In between these times my body and my personality are always changing. This body/mind is a Gemini and is very curious and loves to figure everything out. But it will die along with all the knowledge it collected over the years. In order to pass the knowledge on it could teach people or write it all down. But basically it doesn't really matter ultimately because everything is always becoming and nothing is being. This continuous stream of sensations that are itself-aware will always continue even after this body/mind dies. That is why the world continues. I would say that this personality is just one thread in the tapestry of this continuum.

      I'm a nice guy. I'm kinda shy, though I'm quickly getting passed that. I like to think I'm clever and capable of thinking a little more critically than most people around me. I'm lazy, but I'm working on it. And I look better with a beard than I do clean shaven.

      I wouldn't consider myself to be shy but I am very reserved. I don't speak hastily or judge hastily. I tend to remain very impartial about most issues, and try to find the honest balance between the extremes of opinions. I rarely speak sincerely, often opting for sarcasm or facetiousness, and I see little wrong with playing devik's advocate even if it results in people believing that's actually what I think. Sometimes in an argument I'll man whichever opinion is being given the least attention. If I do speak sincerely, it's usually just to state all the evidence I can perceive.

      I'm also kind of a goof ball and love to make people laugh. Unfortunately my sense of humor goes over most people's heads, and what's most unfortunate is that people can never tell if I'm joking or not. This is something I secretly enjoy, even though it doesn't help my social relations.

      I fall for girls very quickly and strongly. This is not something I believe helps me very much. Women are honestly my greatest hurdle. The suffering they provide acts as a consistent reminder that my true intention is to let go, live in zen, or whatever. Unfortunately they're also the best method of taking me out of that and making me feel locked inside my mind's judgments about reality. My current fixation has succeeded in plummeting all the confidence I acquired from studying LOA. Things were working out for me like magic for the better part of a year, and now doubt has caved all of it in on itself and I'm not sure how to overcome it or get through it.

      2.9 - Reasoning (I try to reason and think, but I don't bother if I don't care.)
      1.9 - Emotional Stability (I am easily irritated by stupidity and annoying people. I'm also pretty emotional.)
      2.0 - Dominance (I'm by no means an alpha male, but I try not to take shit from people.)
      1.7 - Liveliness (I'm a lazy introvert, but I'll chat up a storm if I'm interested.)
      1.6 - Rule Conciousness (I follow rules I think are fair or if there are significant repurcussions for disobedience.)
      1.1 - Social Boldness (I'm shy and introverted.)
      2.0 - Sensitivity (I'm sensitive, but I try not to acknowledge insults from people I consider beneath me.)
      2.2 - Vigilance (I can be distrusting, especially concerning my belongings.)
      2.9 - Abstractedness (I'm not particularly imaginative except concerning science.)
      1.9 - Privateness (I'll discuss myself, but I still have secrets.)
      2.6 - Apprehension (I worry about the future quite a bit.)
      3.1 - Openness to Change (I'm open-minded, but won't change my position on a whim. I adapt to new situations quickly.)
      3.4 - Self Reliance (I do things myself when I'm not being lazy.)
      1.9 - Perfectionism (This score would be higher, but I'm lazy.)
      2.8 - Tension (I can be impatient.)

      i'm very nonchalant, quiet, with an odd sense of humor, who has a passion for fitness and loves to explore. even on here i'm pretty quiet as i can spend hours reading the forums and not type a single word. i love to be outdoors especially in the summer. not much of a people person, i don't dislike people, i just don't connect with them well. i'm also very selfish as i mostly put my own needs before anyone elses. i also consider myself to be more of a moment to moment person, as i often prefer momentary pleasures over futuristic rewards.

      overall, i think i have an awesome personality.

      Based on the MBTI, I'm an INTJ - and fairly extreme at that (except for the "J"-part, which is only 70% for me).

      According to Cattell's test, I'm like this:

      2.3 Warmth
      3.8 Reasoning
      3.8 Emotional stability
      3.3 Dominance
      1.4 Liveliness
      1.2 Rule-consciousness
      1.7 Social boldness
      2.9 Sensitivity
      1.8 Vigilance
      3.8 Abstractedness
      1.6 Privateness
      1.2 Apprehension
      3.8 Openness to change
      3.9 Self-reliance
      2.3 Perfectionism
      1.7 Tension

      In other words, from my perspective: a reasonably nice, trusting, independent rule-breaking thinker, who stays away from crowds. From most other peoples perspective: a cross between an über-geek, mountain troll, and a wizard.
