  1. The bolded part has been so true for me...it gets really tiring to deal with that. When people focus on isolated parts of what you say that upsets them, and either ignore or somehow don't realize how considerate you are being because of their tunnel vision (including even when you are very straightforward about how much you really care), it just makes you not want to bother at all any more. I'm certainly not perfect, and I'm usually the first to realize and admit I've messed something up, but I think it is pretty telling when the people who have had the most problems with me are really just taking their own problems out on me. People who are generally just miserable, have a lot of unchecked pride, or are unable/unwilling to consider things from multiple viewpoints, make up the majority of those who clash with me. That, along with just the simple fact that there are so few people I can actually connect with, is a considerable part of what makes me weary of even trying. I prefer being alone most of the time, but even I get pretty lonely, so I do still try occasionally when I see that there might be a decent chance...but in the end it rarely makes any difference. I could count the number of people I've connected with well on one hand and still have fingers to spare, and none of those few are even in my life in any capacity any more. I think I know how you feel about all that, including the sorta misanthropic feelings...to an extent, I think for us it's something that ultimately can't really be avoided, no matter how you much you fight it. We simply see too much for it to be any other way.
  2. I've got it all downloaded and ready to try out tonight. Can't wait to jump in! :)
  3. I've had much the same experience as all this. Logic is something I value very highly, so to people who are much stronger of an F than I am, I come across as totally the opposite (same thing happens with strong T's in the opposite direction, though not as often); however, I do pretty consistently test as having just a mild F preference, and to me, even with logic being very important, that in itself is not my focus. It's really a means to an end, supporting my ability to understand, connect with, and help others. This part of any test is always hard for me to get through, as so much of the time I use both provided options in conjunction rather equally or even in combination, or in the case of sliders, I think about how I handle things and mostly am right in the middle. This is really the only area of my personality--at least in reference to MBTI anyways--that is actually well-balanced, lol. Everything else is clear as a bell ....for better or worse.
  4. I filled it out, hope it helps!
  5. This is one of the few exceptions I make to my no-preorder policy. I've enjoyed all the Mass Effect games a lot thus far, and Andromeda would have to be massively fucked up for me to not like it.
  6. It's more that the NT would know the fact of mutual feelings having been confirmed, and then not seeing the value in reaffirming them to the same frequency as what you need, or in necessarily the same ways as what you prefer (love languages). Just have to talk it over and not sweep it under the rug. :) Convince them of the value in doing so, and you'll be good!
  7. I'm not an NT but that sounds reasonable to me; the straightforwardness would certainly be appreciated and make it easier to accommodate your needs.
  8. I happen to have plenty of experience with clogging toilets! Joking aside, that in particular is but a minor thing anyways. I've talked about more serious things on here before, when I felt the need to, but that doesn't happen very often, especially as I've gotten older and have worked through a lot of them already (thus the lack of need for much advice)--or at the least I am at the point of being able to talk about them comfortably should a topic come up in which that information might be helpful in some way. And no, I won't be getting married any time soon...assuming it will ever happen, anyways.
  9. Here are my results using the MBTI test you just linked, Squidward. I=84% N=72% T=9% J=38% Here are my HEXACO results. H=4.69 E=3.13 X=1.63 A=3.44 C=4.50 O=3.75 Full results if you want to see them: https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B5PRyF64_lSKRTZ0bllpNVo0RkE/view?usp=drivesdk
  10. Most of my habits are formed because I find the best and most efficient way to do something, and then stick with it until/unless I find an even better way (Unfortunately, my SJ family members don't understand this and see it as a problem...). The rest of my habits are borderline subconscious as a result of my anxiety, such as trichotillomania.
  11. There is always music going on in my mind while awake, even two or three different songs at once sometimes. Sometimes it's consciously chosen (I can pretty much use my brain as an mp3 player for anything I've listened to a good amount.), the rest of the time it is either influenced by something I hear or think of which triggers it, or is just random. Sometimes there is even music playing in my dreams (No, I don't sleep while actually listening to music.); sometimes it's music I've heard before, and sometimes my brain just makes it up (I wish I could record those somehow. :( ). So, knowing that, I have to say that in order to be completely devoid of music, I would literally have to be dead.
  12. I honestly don't think it's really possible to be a reasonably independent person while staying on good terms with them--'good terms' being nothing more than an illusion in this case, as they are apparently either unwilling or incapable of compromise. So long as they continue to try to keep you on a leash, there will never be peace between you all. Family is important, sure, but if it gets to the point where they promote such toxic relationships and act as if you are not your own person, then you are better off not dealing with them at all, if/until they ever decide to change their ways (don't get your hopes up). Not an easy thing to do, but you need to do whatever is in your best interest here. Don't let anyone hold you back from living how you want to, and certainly don't let them guilt trip you into letting them run your life.
  13. I'll probably wait to get it until there's some sort of complete edition available.
  14. I voted for introvert and shy. I don't really talk much at all in general unless it's one-on one, and even then it's still not a given that it'll happen.
  15. I would see that as more of sharing a personal interest as a way to learn more about you (and you about him as well) than anything else of a more insidious nature. It's a good way to expand his mind too; not all problems have one road to a solution, or even one singular solution to begin with. I recall several times in my high school math classes--particularly geometry when dealing with proofs (it was weird to me that everyone else hated them, but I found them fun)--where I would find alternate ways of solving a problem that were not in the answer book, which would then get marked as incorrect, so then I'd go over it with the teacher to show what I did, and then he would agree I was right and mark it correct. They were certainly more roundabout ways of solving the problems than what the book listed, but logically no less sound. I think it's great that he's taking an interest in you to this extent; you're very lucky!
