I have no idea, this is why I when I was referred for CBT I ended up quitting halfway through because the therapist kept asking me about what I was feeling during situations that I brought up I had no idea how to answer. I really don't know how to describe what I feel. I don't talk to anyone about m...

A Logistician (ISTJ) is someone with the Introverted, Observant, Thinking, and Judging personality traits. These people tend to be reserved yet willful, with a rational outlook on life. They compose their actions carefully and carry them out with methodical purpose. I think the Turbulent part means...

Ability to hear higher pitches than most people your age is also an AS trait. It can be both good and bad, since it's a source of overload, but also sometimes provides useful information - for example, some mechanical defects can be detected earlier if you can hear high pitches and figure out what'...

Just took the test and it says I'm ISTJ-T. Dunno what any of this means, mind you. :P Most of the questions I found annoying because my answer was usually "it depends" lol. I don't like these types of quizzes much. EDIT: After reading the description of ISTJ, I disagree with it completely ...

Yeah I can relate a lot. Even though I don't put as much effort into masking as you do, I've stilled struggled a lot in most places I've worked. My main problem being that when there are things that are upsetting me at work or things I'm struggling with I can't speak up until the last minute when it...

I have no idea how to do it either. When I see tutorials on how to put up hair and stuff I just get overwhelmed by all the extra things it seems that you need to buy (pins, spray or whatever people put on their hair). Then my arms hurt from trying over and over to get it right and I just get frustra...

I was thinking about this very thing this morning during our work microsoft 'teams' meeting at 9am. After all these years I still find myself caught out by this one - wondering what to say. I managed to access my default response though - a simple "it was a very nice weekend thankyou" whi...

I think saying something like e.g. "I did some chores, played some video games and worked on my crochet project" could be a satisfying answer - you give something about you without monopolyzing the conversation. Yeah that's exactly what I want to avoid doing, I don't want to get carried a...

But if you don't mask and you end up upsetting people or being judged by strangers, wouldn't that cause anxiety/depression too? I'm not sure my mask is good enough so I think it probably puts people off more that I mask badly lol. Maybe it is better to not mask in this case. I think it was easier t...

Some habits that cause me distress include: - trying to respond to personal questions with a 'normal' answer that might be dishonest - putting on a smiling, 'engaged' expression constantly - silencing repetitive words/phrases, or keeping them in my head - sneaking around to avoid social interaction...

What are your hobbies? Maybe they're not popular but I think mentioning them wouldn't be bad. Think of it as a gentle signalling "I have a life, too" but then not pushing if people aren't interested. My main hobbies at the moment are learning Chinese, playing zither and currently working ...

I feel like I've kinda gotten used to the whole small talk of "how are you" etc. at work where I understand it's more of a greeting and not an actual question to be answered. It still makes me feel awkward but I can get it over with without much fuss. But this question trips me up as I don...
