I've put a lot of thought into this. My mother would constantly say is that I lack a personality. I doubt I project some sort of a personality on this forum either. I guess I could say with certainty that I am fairly shy and reserved.

When I try to act fun or playful then usually I am told I am being annoying... so I clam up and remain that way, as I have most of my life. But one thing some people have said is that I am very difficult to get to know, but I have good moments when I open up.

Whats my personality.. The answer to that would depend on who you ask. People I only met a few times would say I'm quite, maybe rude or standoffish, that is if they remember me at all. Those that know me would say much the same thing, but would also add either that I'm a great and caring friend or that I'm an easy mark and a good person to use.

To be honest, I really have no idea what people would say about my personality, I can only say what I think they think and there is no way I could ever accually ask one of my friends what they really think, the sure stress that would cause would make me pass out.

But the bottom line comes down to the fact that I really have no personality, atleast not a inbuilt one. This is something hard to explain to most people, but I think it will be more easly understood on this forum as others seem to have the same thing. Basicly I just am. I have interests, I feel joy and saddness (some times very intensly), but on the whole my life is just a state so monotone sameness or personality.

Despite this I have always had a natural nack at immitating the manurisms of those around me. With in minutes, if not seconds, I can start taking up the phrases, gestures, and speach patters of people I met. It requires more consious effort to keep the unique personality traits I've intintionally developed then it ever does to simple immitate the personality of others. I think this is one reason I dislike crowds bigger then me and 2 other people, it is to much input to take in and colate into one single output of action and behavior.

This ability to immatate the personalities of others has given me an extremly high degree of functionality in life. I can play the good employee to the boss at work, be one of the guys on sunday with my buddies, go shopping with my female friends, befriend a salesman ot get a deal, play the reformed criminal for a judge, or even be the perfect vision of flawed saneness for a psychologist.

Over the past decade I've I developed a nice healthy personallity that gives me both personal happyness and confidence, but it takes work each day to maintain it to myself and the outside world. The most important thing it has taught me about life is we can be whoever we want to be, good or evil, it just takes work and to say that "X is the way I am and I can't change" really just means you aren't willing to put the work in.

I've been told that I'm fun, warm, and sweet. Unfortunately, I'm single and pretty. Most men (and some women) just want sex from me. Married women aren't the warmest, they are afraid to have me around their husbands.

I've had friends in the past. I'm not a homewrecker. I would never take someone's husband away, or flirt with someone's husband.

It's probably the hardest its ever been for me now. I never got the husband, career, and kids package that I thought I'd eventually get. I'm living with my parents. The community doesn't know what to do with me. Guys are nice to me and then they cut me off when they find something more to their liking.

I'm tactful and loyal, not too honest but honest enough to gain trust from people.
I care a lot about others and I am sensitive to other people's feelings.
I like attention.
I have a huge sense of humour, and I also make other people laugh.
My motto is "treat others how you like to be treated", and most of my actions are based on this.
I am rather scatterbrained, messy and disorganised.
I am easily amused and can ask off the wall questions.
I am unique.

Not really sure how to explain mine because I think I've lived a few different lives, I have a hell of a lot of life experience as I've been through so many things.

I think after everything I've been through I've learned that I'm quite respectful of people now because you don't know what someone is going through, even friends and family - you have no idea whats going on with them sometimes so it's best to just be nice as you can. Everyone has an off day and reacting to them in a bad way just makes everything worse I have found.

♢ I would say I'm very respectful.

♢ I have a lot of morals and self-respect.

♢ I treat others how I'd like to be treated.

♢ I don't really get involved in any drama because I can't be bothered with it all, I just keep out of it. I don't even entertain people with a reply if I think they're being smarmy.

♢ I like to joke around a bit, some playful insults now and then but nothing too harsh.

♢ I would never intentionally cause harm or mental harm to someone.

♢ I'm very modest dressed in person, I don't really have my boobs on display or something, not into that because that clashes with the self respect/morals.

♢ I'm quite a deeply caring person, I care about everyone around me - but carefully so as to not get manipulated with lies.

♢ If some random person in the street was in immediate need of help or got injured I would definitely step in and help/call an ambulance. (Free in the UK)

♢ I always try to be a good person because you don't get anywhere if you're s**t to people, you end up alone and nobody wants to know, so you end up with like no support from anyone, it's not worth it.

♢ Sometimes I randomly am too honest and tell people the truth in a rather blunt way that they'd rather not hear but I never intend anything bad. I'm just straight up honest.

♢ I'm talkative and know a lot of random facts.

Can't really think of much else to say. :lol:

I don’t take myself too seriously.

I try to treat people like I like to be treated.

I can be clumsy socially and physically.

I’m almost 60–but I act like I’m barely 21.

I lead by example, rather than by blatant “leading.”

I can be very silly.

I don’t like to offend people.

I sometimes can’t tell when a person is joking or serious.

I’ve never been considered for a supervisor position at my job—even those I know my job backwards and forwards.

I’m more a 20th century than a 21st century person.

I can be direct—but I can be reticent, too.

Wow! A thread from 2006.

Describe your personality: I am an INTJ.

What is it like being an INTJ? This is what other INTJ's describe themselves as:

INTJs are one of the rarest personality types, accounting for approximately 1.5 percent of the population. Some INTJs describe themselves in the following way “We choose to be ourselves and not care what others think. Intellectually being an INTJ is fun as hell! When presented with relevant, challenging, and coherent problems/books/ideas then we go crazy theorizing! In some ways the INTJ is a mixture between a seasoned professor and a observant fun-loving child.” “our logic is almost never wrong” “If suddenly something captures our attention, we just have to know each and everything about it.” “We are self confident individuals who know our strengths and weaknesses.” “Ideas are our forte. We identify with our ideas.” “INTJs can usually be quite good at accepting constructive criticism, if the INTJ respects the person giving the criticism.” “Things like authority, rank, and seniority mean little to most INTJs. For better or for worse, if I think someone is wrong, I will say so, whether they be a colleague, a teacher, or the CEO of the company. What matters most to many INTJs is getting the correct solution; it doesn't matter who produces it.” “ I prepare thoroughly before giving a formal presentation.” “utter earnestness, sincerity, and thoroughness. And a systems-oriented, big-picture mind.” “We usually see things from a million perspectives.” “We can stay alone for a loooong time: because there is a party going on inside our heads. A 100 voices talking, debating with each other about the best course of action around something.” “I felt very alone and ostracized as a child and youth because I didn't value the same things other kids did, didn't act the way they did, was consistently at the top of any scored intellectual activity (which always makes you less popular), didn't know how to gain the acceptance of my peers and didn't quite have a language to describe these feelings to my parents or others.” “Super Human Analytical Skills. I rely on this instinct often and it serves me well. Usually my snap decisions and judgments are spot on and brutally harsh.” “I learn quickly, sometimes intuitively. I can ride a motorcycle, go to sleep, play a computer game or otherwise ‘turn off’ active thinking, and come back and sit down and know exactly how to solve extremely complex problems. It's not that I didn't think about it, but instead my mind thought about it for me.” “ I’m hardly ever bored, because there are worlds, inside worlds, inside worlds in my own head.” “I am also an intensely private person. Most of the time even my closest friends and family don't know exactly what I'm thinking about or feeling because I prefer to keep it to myself.”

I am also a strong INTJ. (Tested in 1990.)

And mildly autistic. (Tested in 2019.)

Kind of proud of both.

I'm petty, childish, probably not as smart as I think I am, and prone to anger. But when I meet somebody who accepts me as I am I can be a very loyal friend.

All this modesty crap. :eew:

I'm the smartest person on this website.
I am sexy in my budgy-smugglers.

That is all I need to get by. 8)
