INXJ, on the scale from 1-10, how much do you worry about what you say will affect them emotionally? (1 being not at all, 10 being 100% certainly)
It’s a huge pain in the ass to have people blithering about with hurt feelings, and it’s generally not tactical to do so. I’ll say 7.
INXJ, there is something related to Ni and old language. or just in literary art in general. why do you guys care so much about language?
I’m mostly just still here because Blake and some others on board are good writers. I understand MBTI well enough now and feel like I’m watching it get flogged to death with Ti on here. I’m just doing this because I like writing sentences on gloomy days and blocked on serious writing.
INXJ, I know you guys love to read. but how do you learn? what are the process you take?
I read freakishly fast and in coursework usually read far ahead to understand concepts then backtrack to understand details.
INXJ, are you comfortable being blunt and straightforward?
INXJ, do you honestly but secretly think you’re better than everyone?
Better at being me, otherwise, hell no. Not a single person out there I can’t learn from.
INXJ, what do you like about history?
I want to understand how to be human. There’s lots of epic ways to screw it up and a few lights strung here and there.
INXJ, why do you like ancient stuff?
I don’t just feel like I’m in the wrong time; I feel prehistoric. I want to learn from birds and stars and dance and laugh by the fireside. Stuff about finding your tribe didn’t resonate at all; mine is long gone if they ever existed at all. I realize there’s irony that I’m writing this on a computer; I may go off grid at some point.
INXJ, do you like people?
I love people, unless my people to alone time ratio gets screwed up, then people annoy the hell out of me.
INXJ, how often is your intuition wrong?
It’s more like a guidance system, continually subject to recalibration, rarely wrong altogether.
INXJ, how much do you care about looking good physically?
I rarely look sloppy, but seldom make an effort to stand out.
INXJ, what turns you on? a warm cantaloupe? haha jk but seriously. what turns you on?
Picking sun-warm strawberries, thunderstorms, slow smiles and touches, lazy days after chores done, baroque music, competence.
INXJ, what are some traits that you look for in an ideal mate?
Competence, not emotionally needy, not sedentary, able to hold a conversation, someone who gets it.
INXJ, what do you consider ‘stupid?’
INXJ, on the scale from 1-10 how much do you give compliments? (1=none. 10= very often)
@supernokturnal, this is a great questionnaire; it was really kind of you to make it and to try to help people understand their type. You’re like a breath of fresh air on the board, and I’m glad you came back.
checks off to-do list
Eh,5, I try to remember to express gratitude and help people feel empowered, but I forget a lot.
INXJ, how much do you respect authority?
I show respect for authority and try to follow the rules unless there is a good reason not to do so, for example, if I don’t want to.
INXJ, what holds you back from speaking your mind?
A poorly designed weirdness filter.
