How would you describe your personality to people?
« on: July 19, 2008, 10:02:56 AM »
i am;
calm and relaxed, i dont get worked up or stressed very much at all.

curious and inquisitive, i have alot of interests, in some many different areas of life, i believe life is a great big adventure with so much to discover and many opportunities.
 
i am caring, i have suffered a lot in my life but now i am happy, i have developed a great compassion for other people and am always willing to help people out when ever i can.

i am resilient, i have come through many hardships and have become quite a tough old nut, takes a lot to get me down.

i geuss these are ll my better qualities i must have some negative also, but apart from being stubborn i cannot think of any right now.

I am compassionate, when I love, I love with all I have. I am bubbly, friendly, caring, kind. I am a worry wart, I am sensitive and can be passive. I take things to heart and find it hard to ignore peoples comments.

I procrastinate a LOT, I am an expert at it, I can be lazy. I need a lot of cuddles and I get very lonely. I love animals and my life has no purpose if I am not a mum to an animal (at the moment I have two dogs I worship). When something piques my interest I research it exstensively though I dont have a good memory for facts, I am not very clever. I find it hard to take things in (like learning to drive), and get angry with myself easily if I cant do something. I give up rather than remain determined. I dont have self-confidence or self-belief.

I probably wouldnt be friends with me.

Ouch - be aware that you are stretching yourself.  Consider a piece of string - at one end is the need to nurture, care, look after, be responsible and at the other end is adventure, freedom, no responsibilities - but no support.  You cannot do both - they are opposing and distinct needs/drivers/values.  Sort out where you are at home - and then smile!

The best way to show your personality is by the way you dress. When a stranger meets you, you will be judged by your looks. So take utmost care of that. And then the way you speak and express yourself. Maintain your slang well. I think these are the two most important things that help you in getting a good appearance and respect.

yeah now you have me thinking, i am more interested in why someone with two careers is looking for a third. (have you found your vocation?)

zodiac personality traits, i find have some usefulness but i would not give to much weight to them in a clinical setting. it would also depend what source is used for the description of the personality.

i have found through all my studies in spirtuality Alice Bailey is the most reliable, rational and consistent on metaphysical philosophy.  see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alice_Bailey

Interesting thread.  I would describe my personality as friendly, spontaneous, but a bit stubborn!  And maybe a little pushy with my family...  ;D

Also seems like you have some pretty darn good insight as well.  Saying this, because the things you noted (all of 'em) are certainly consistent with your behavior around here.  Goes a long way in my sense of things...

Something so cool about this thread- everybody who posted noted both "good" and "bad" things about themselves.  Champion.  Guess I need to step up to the plate...

Um... passionate is hopefully the first thing.  Lover of wisdom.  Wanna love other people, 'n have 'em love me back.  Hopefully behave as if "my" life is none of my business.  Despite my checkered past, am a very soft person.  Stubborn.  Sometimes do with a bulldozer what might've been done with a garden spade.  My integrity is both blessing and curse.  Music is everywhere in my life.  Spend so much time being a "tool of the universe", trying to make myself a hero, that I probably spend a little less time being one.  Am oft the local shaman (to steal from one of my heroes, Sheldon Kopp).  Try to bring sweetness, humor, wisdom, service, softness, fun, new or progressive things into others' lives and circumstances.  Thinking lately that I oughtta be more wary of my own capacity for solipsism.

There's arguably more, but another of my character defects is that I've already decided for most people that they're not going to read this anyway.  Apologies in advance.   ;)

I, adopting, a more eccentric view on relationships with people... have come to interesting conclusion about my personality.


Let me first say that I think in terms of variability... and by this I mean, as far as I am concerned, existence is in motion because of inequality.  So I feel that society is in motion for the same reason... inequality.  What this breaks down into is a belief that people are ultimately selfish...  and I do not mean it in a bad way...  it is just a conscious species way.  This can be seen in the human race...  it is the system of ego...  so I am an oddity for one reason or another...  =  )

I tend not to trust various aspects of people...  perhaps stemming from what I have experienced in life.

I myself can be humorous to people I know and awkward to people I don't. 

I am messy, unorganized, lazy, agreeable and at the same time I debate everything...  passionate about things which may never be fruitful..... 

I am under delusions of being a supreme intelligence...

I am gross...  and do not really tend to appearance... 

I am impatient

I sometimes consider myself a monster...  some grotesque genetic anomaly (which I feel stems from mass media)





Perhaps though despite all of those things...  I can say that I know love...  and have seen with my own mind futures which I would die trying to build




   
Competition can only exist within the ignorance of intelligence

I feel like I know you already Schizo, or do I?

As for myself, I am a reserved person. But my foundation has a few cracks in it, and some of my feelings come out every now and then. I would like to be a caring person, but I find it hard to share myself with other people, due to some past experiences. But underneath it all, I'm just a kid. I feel like I should be able to share more, but for some reason I'm at a loss right now. Oh well.

Anyway, that's me in a nutshell.

Anyway, that's me in a nutshell.


Actually, I found this quite beautiful, albeit sad in some ways of course.

Have been talking a lot with Cecile and others about how we want wisdom, softness, humor, sexuality, sweetness, fun, vulnerability, responsibility and all kinds of other stuff- but we're often not willing to be those things to begin with.  Unfortunately, as you've been on the non-fun end of it appears from the above, getting hurt by people makes those things less possible.

That said, am a huge fan of being willing to get my feelings hurt anyway.  Being in a place where I feel like I know how to be hurt, sad, ashamed, afraid, and/or mad pretty gracefully, in a way that actually makes those things less intense, it's a little easier for me to go out in the world and be vulnerable, to take risks with folk.  While maybe not terribly heartening, at least, it maintains a personhood I'm deeply committed to behaving with.  If nothing else, I feel like I am being who I am, and there is some comfort in that.

Doesn't help that there's not always people in the world to process it with.  We oft feel like we're "overburdening" people (funny, because we scarcely ask them), like they're simply not interested, or we end up suffering more because they say something hurtful or dismissive or whatever.  That still happens to me sometimes, but I live with it, process that too, and try to find people who might be a little better for me e-motionally/spiritually.  It's not optimal, but it's oft what we have. 

My hope?  That you can find such people in your life, such willingness in yourself.  None of us deserves to go through an otherwise confusing world feeling so separate from "other" people.  I promise to keep doin' it at least.

.............Whoa...

That was pretty cool what you said. Almost as if you peered into my very soul. And to respond in such a way from the small bit that I wrote.......

I'm gonna try to keep what you said to heart, although I can't keep any solid promises. It's good to know that there are people out there who understand.

I am compassionate, when I love, I love with all I have. I am bubbly, friendly, caring, kind. I am a worry wart, I am sensitive and can be passive. I take things to heart and find it hard to ignore peoples comments.

I procrastinate a LOT, I am an expert at it, I can be lazy. I need a lot of cuddles and I get very lonely. I love animals and my life has no purpose if I am not a mum to an animal (at the moment I have two dogs I worship). When something piques my interest I research it exstensively though I dont have a good memory for facts, I am not very clever. I find it hard to take things in (like learning to drive), and get angry with myself easily if I cant do something. I give up rather than remain determined. I dont have self-confidence or self-belief.

i swear i just read a description of myself  :o

I would describe myself as:
-joyous, the person in the room who laughs the loudest and smiles the brightest- no matter what
-sometimes not sincere, i can manipulate to get my way...a fault i have.
-another fault i recognize i have is bullheadedness- i always have to be right.
-on the other hand, im a caring person. i usually mean well, and hate to see others hurting
-i try to give a helping hand whenever i can, however im needed
-curious..im inquisitive, always up for learning something new
-i also have a certain standard of kindness and respect that i try to give to everyone i meet.
Be the change you wish to see in the world.

some qualities that we share, are you a taurean by any chance?

I like this thread. I feel like my personality (confident, warm, direct, optimistic) has changed a great deal over the years. However, this would go against the data. For example, Costa et al. (2000) showed that life events in general showed very little influence on the levels of personality traits. Do you feel that your personality has changed over the years?

i am optimistic(even when i am facing all sorts of problems as i am now)...i simply smile and laugh...and people wonder why i am so happy...
i am a loving sort of person who cares for all human beings immaterial race and creed(sometimes i think that it is a problem...people try to take advantage of this..)
i am a person who says,"never say die"...continue with determination until i succeed(unless it is personal relationships...then, i am a coward!)

How would I describe my personality?  By quoting John Lennon, that canonized Saint (of course):

"I am He as you are He as you are me and We are All Together."
[The capitalization of certain words is my effort and contribution to the line. -JME]

[Edit]
If that is not enough to describe my personality, then you can add any one line from the song "The Continuing Story of Bungalow Bill."

hmm... honestly i don't know how i'm going to describe my personality here in a few sentences. but generally i'm introverted, intelligent, warm (though i may not look like it), calm and composed (i may not be sometimes, i get crazy haha!).
well i'm imaginative, intuitive and i love fantasy, hence always fantasize about this and that....
um i don't trust people easily, i sorta... build barriers between me and other people and keep my distance until i'm more comfortable around people and i'll open up to them.  and i'm mostly looking down or somewhere else, either not making eye contact at all or staring at you blankly. hmm and i'm serious and i have the polite-smile or the warm-smile. people say i have beautiful eyes, i can't remember that word they use but it basically means it's so "full" or just.... bright and pretty.  :)
well i tend to get critical towards other people's stuff (and the same to myself too). i always feel like i see things a lot clearer and can't get it sometimes why people don't. some people hate my mood swings, say i'm chatty for one moment and suddenly cold another. and i'm think i'm an infj, and i Love deep stuff, stuff like psychology...

and many many more! ;)
