se. You’re the type to signal when you would like social interaction and either get it yourself or let others entertain you. Your family and/or romantic partner are the only ones you really associate with – if they aren’t around, you simply choose not to be close to anyone. You’re friendly, but distant. You don’t mind diversity in your interactions, but people of your own type are either less than welcome – you dislike competition – or they belong to your close-knit circle anyway. Since you’re alone most of the time, it’s hard to judge how many people you like to be around. You don’t like to be around people all the time, anyway, friends or not, and you hardly share anything important outside your set group.
Do I have fun at large parties, or would I have more fun with a small group of friends?
As an introvert, you would probably say that you prefer being with fewer people, but since you’re very introverted and in fact spend most of your day on your own / only with casual interactions, there has to be a possibility to get away from your friends, too. You wouldn’t want to be with them 24/7, either way.
How do I behave differently around strangers from around friends?
You’re far more guarded with strangers. You’re not often seen by people and you do act timid and shy around them. Around you’re friends you’re your loud self, but around strangers, you hardly speak at all. You tend to like hearing them talk, though, even if you don’t like them personally or like to share anything of yourself with them. You’re pretty relaxed and laid-back around your friends, too, while you’re downright stiff around those you don’t know well. You’re also damn aloof. You choose who you hang out with and while it can be said you’re friendly to everyone, you’re distancing yourself from them with your mannerisms.
What kind of a reputation do I have?
People may recognize you based on the things your say or the opinions you hold. Generally you are not loud in public, but when you have an opinion, you might be quite vehement in the way you voice it. You are usually seen as far more extreme than you are. At the end of the day, you are more shy than you are bold, more willing to work for your share than you are lazy. You’re solitary enough to be classed as ‘boring’ by some more extroverted individuals. You can be everything they say about you: Yes, you can be a cynical misanthropic nuisance. But you are not quite as bad as others and people who only know your timid and friendly side are usually taken aback when they realize you can be a sass. If you just got to know someone and this someone doesn’t happen to be acquainted with the bunch of people who stereotype you, they will find you timid, retiring, and not likely to speak up if unnecessary. It’s not wrong to say that this impression of you is as wrong as the impression of House the Second you tend to give off on a bad day. What people who assume you to be tough and feisty find somewhat appalling about you is your submissive nature. (I'm not really submissive unless the situation calls for it.) Unless exploited, you go pretty far for those you love without complaining. You are adaptable and this shows when it comes to those you respect.
You’re usually seen as aloof, though, and in assuming that you are, people aren’t wrong. You might well be mixed up with a sighthound-soul in this respect for you manage the same cattish exterior when watching something you find below your level: You express polite amusement for the sake of being polite and friendly, but that’s usually so short your expression seems more scathing than sympathetic. You are quite noticeable, though. (When I doll myself up I stand out, but otherwise I usually try to not be noticed at all. Whether or not it works isn't something I'm sure of. Could be both red and black, I suppose?) There is something that clearly sets you apart from the crowd you move in and people find that this one trait makes you ‘unique’. Commonly seen alone, it’s easy for people to assume that you’re quite the loner. (While I do often do things alone if I'm not with my boyfriend, at things like parties I dislike being alone in a corner because I've learned it gets you looked at quicker. I prefer to seat myself next to someone I know...doesn't mean I'll talk to them. xD Can be both red and black.) But that’s wrong. You just like to do your own thing. At the end of your day, you would find it very distressing not to share the everyday burdens with a partner or your family. All in all, it can be said that your good sides stand out a little more to people than your bad sides. You have been described as ‘sweet-tempered’ and ‘elegant’, anyway. (I've never been described that way. I've been described as “endearing” and “nice” on occasion. Can be both red and black.)
Am I a part of a certain "clique" or do I tend to make friends with everyone?
You are generally friendly to everyone, if always aloof. You tend to develop preferences for people, but the criteria you apply are generally obscure to others than yourself. You would do quite a lot for these people, too. (There are many, many lines I wouldn't cross. I'd do a lot for my boyfriend, and I suppose I'd do some good for people I didn't know/people I do know so long as there's either something in it for me or nothing to lose. Can be both red and black.)
Do I find it easy to trust others?
You’re one of the most paranoid souls out there. You dislike commitments (you have a hard time settling down at a place without a way to get away) and you’re slow to trust intruders. Even people who have been around you for years must be very lucky (or one of the select few, which might be totally random) to get a good glimpse of how you commonly act. You have to have a way out, always. You are pretty good at looking for loopholes yourself and you use this ability quite mercilessly to get yourself and those you like out of tight spots. You need to win and you will do so.
Am I comfortable being trusted myself?
As long as you can get away from the responsibility being trusted brings, of course. If it’s a family member who trusts you, no problem. If it’s not a family member, you would probably dislike being in the know. You’re not very curious an individual, after all. (If I overhear it, or someone just up and tells me, then I suppose I could be “curious”. I don't go out of my way for information, though, unless it pertains to me. Can be both red and black.) You value personal safety higher than acquiring useless information.
When I've wronged someone, how quickly do I apologize, if at all? Do I find it easy to "own up," or more difficult?
You’re very proud a person. You might find it hard to fess up something you have done or to apologize – at least when it’s a family member. If not, you have no qualms lying about being sorry. (If I'm not sorry, then I won't apologize...unless apologizing would just be faster. So that can be both red and black.) Again, personal safety (and that is safety of a job or a the good relationship with people you need) is more important than everything. People tend to do what you want them to do, either way, so it’s not hard for you to very rarely apologize, even within family.
What do I do if startled by someone?
You run when extremely scared, but you will stop to observe after a while. Maybe you’re just prideful and don’t want to go without taking a good look at what scared you, or else you’re gullible, but you don’t *just* run.
How do I show my dislike?
People you do not like normally realize this fact pretty damn fast. It’s not that you want to push them away, it’s just that your timid nature and tendency to portray your feelings in your body-language betray you. (If I don't like them, I don't want to be around them- AKA I definitely want to push them away. I do have a tendency to have my body language betray me. Half red, half black.) In fact, if someone knows you well, they can read from you like a book. If they don’t know you very well, though, they might interpret some behaviour the wrong way as you have some unique looks and gestures in your repertoire that are unlikely to be shared by anyone but intermediate family and close friends of yours.
Am I more aggressive or am I more passive?
You’re not very aggressive. In fact, you would rather avoid a fight altogether. You only get truly nasty if you feel you or a loved one a threatened. You usually back down if you feel a confrontation is not worth it. (I don't back down from fights...unless I'm entirely outnumbered/overpowered. And even then I bitch for days afterwards. At the same time, I don't get into confrontations over little things. Usually when i lash out over little things, I don't get messed with afterwards. Both red and black?) If you have the feeling someone will hurt you, you will bite to kill, though. You can be snappish, though.
Do people see me around often?
You’re not easy to get hold of. You’re almost never seen outside social obligations and people have a hard time getting a hold of you even there.
How do I behave in public?
Keeping your head down is important to you. Some might assume you’re a coward, others might assume you’re simply a very cautious person. (I don't usually keep my head down...I put on displays of self-confidence in order to attempt to seem “bigger”. At the same time, I don't try to get attention; I don't talk unless someone approaches me, I don't go up to groups of people, I'm not loud/obnoxious...so in a way, perhaps subconsciously I do keep my head down? Red and black.) Hearing that you’re a coward might sting, especially considering that you do take calculated risks more often than others. Generally, you’re one to slink around corners. (No, for the same reason as above.) You’re not as much shy as you are timid. Also, you’re private by nature and would prefer it if no strangers intruded into yours and your family’s territory.
Am I well-known?
Nope, you’re not the most well-known person ever. In fact, it’s likely people will try to sort you into a box the second they meet you (‘mean asshole’ or ‘timid wallflower’ respectively) and they will have to snap out of it after a while.
Do I prefer to work alone, or in a group?
You prefer working alone. You might sometimes team up with friends and family to bring down a bigger kill, but you usually don’t. You value that they’re usually just a call away when you’re in trouble, though, any you like having a safety net when it comes to work, too.
What's my learning style? Do I learn better from visual demonstrations, from listening,or from experiences? Do I need to study something more to learn it or do I seem to just pick it up from the start? Am I better at more analytical studies (math and science) or memorization of facts (history, etc.)?
You learn pretty fast, if you actually bother to. You know how to press the buttons of people around you at least. Since you’re naturally perceptive, you’re quite a visual learner. You’re pretty lazy, so it can’t be said which kind of study you like best – preferably the one you have to work less for. It depends on what comes easiest to you and which requires less effort. You’re rather memorize a chapter of facts than try to understand maths if you don’t really have a knack for it. On the other hand, if you have a knack for maths and it comes easily to you, you prefer it over learning stuff by heart. You like to go the path of least resistance, so to speak.
How curious am I?
Curious enough, you could say. You’re not a person to uselessly put yourself in danger just because you have a feeling. You’re too grounded for that. When you can obtain information without risking something, you will, though.
Do I feel the need to have a plan, or do I prefer to "go with the flow"?
You have a plan to go with the flow. xD Improvising can be dangerous, but you tend to rely on yourself for it. You tend to plan things you worry about, but your plan is never rigid enough to not let random events disturb it. If
you’re not worried, you won’t have a plan, though, but you’re definitely aren’t the type to plunge headfirst into something unknown.
When I have work to do, how do I pace myself?
You determine how important the work is. If it’s important (=not doing it could hurt you), you will do it ASAP and without complaining. If it’s not important, you might do it somewhere in between. But even if not important, you will probably get around to do it just to eliminate any potential danger. Voluntary work, though- wait? Where are you? You won’t do anything if you don’t see any personal gain in it.
Am I organized, or more messy?
Again, you’re as organized as you need to be. If you see being messy as a threat to you coming out top, you will be organized. If it doesn’t matter, you’re messy because being organized means work. You like having an overview over things, though, so if it’s remotely important you will try to get your things together, as you’re not able to overview a messy situation.
Am I a highly focused individual, or am I more easily distracted?
If you’re onto something, you’re very focussed. Still, you can’t stay focussed forever. You’re very much a person for smaller projects because you tend to lack the patience for longer ones. You like seeing a result early.
Do I prefer to keep things simple, or do I like lots of detail?
You will add as much detail as needed, but work is never fun for you and you will never work hard for nothing.
Am I opportunistic?
You’re not greedy, but you take what you can get. Okay, you might get a little greedy if stuff is free. But you’re never over-the-top. In fact, you’re pretty grateful for what you get – you don’t use people. The scheme you would need to do that would require you to mask yourself and actually make an effort. (I'm guilty of using people to get what I want, but not outrageous things.) Basically, if you have the choice between getting something small for free or working for getting something bigger, you will almost always choose the first option.
Do I prefer quality or quanitity?
You really go for quantity over quality – the best things in life are those that come to you without an effort. In fact, it never seems you’re very happy about things you worked hard for. You’re more capable than you let others see, though, and the second they assume there isn’t much bite to you, you show them there is.
Do I give up easily? How resourceful am I?
You’re quite dogged for someone as lazy. You do not give up until you got what you wanted, usually. It’s easier if there is someone who’s got your back, though. In fact, compared to others, you’re not all too lazy at all. You’re pretty damn tough if the situation demands and you never come close to being in danger if you can avoid it. You’re far more resourceful than. Everyone around, really. If someone else would have given up long ago, you go on and on and on. Some might argue that you’re just stubborn (and maybe that’s true), but it seems like you always have an ace up on your sleeve. You prefer not to use it up until the very last minute, though and only share it with those whom you love dearly or to save your own butt.
What do I look for in a potential boyfriend or girlfriend?
Probably the ability to give you room when needed. You don’t need someone clingy because you very much love your freedom. It could be said you have a problem with commitments and though your partner is generally exempt from that anxiety, they have to be willing to move over you feel uneasy and generally pretty understanding towards your timid needs. You can also be snappy and exhibit random dislikes most people have trouble to understand. You’re also pretty territorial- a potential partner would have to be able to deal with that. You’re also sassy and can be mean, which is not something your partner should answer with equal sass, as you’re easily hurt.
How would I react to a boyfriend or girlfriend? Would I be obsessive, protective, clingy, detached? How would I show affection?
You’re pretty protective and detached from people you love, even though your bond is deep and you are dependent on them, you’d loathe to show it. Your displays of affection are random and weird and not everyone can deal with them. You’re a romantic, secretly. But since you’re not often seen with your partner, your love life is largely a secret. (I typically am seen with him; we travel as a pair a lot of the time. We do not, however, talk about our “love life”.) And, being secretive by nature, you sure prefer it that way.
How was I as a kid?
You were less remarkable as a child. Your defining traits were quite a blur back then, but you found a niche for yourself today. (I was incredibly smart as a kid; skipped second grade, was reading at three/chapter books by four, college-level reading ability by six, etc. My parents had me do workbooks all summer rather than play.) At least your friends find you to be unmistakable now. You needed quite a while to grow up and now you’re still dependent on those you love. You live your own life, make your own decisions, but it’s your family/romantic partner you need to back you up.
How do I react when I’m angry at someone? Do I confront them directly or use my anger in other ways?
You’re as passive-aggressive as they come. Okay, as soon as you have back-up, you dare to be outright aggressive.
You threaten people to keep them at bay (mostly through body language) and manage to a cooler posture than most in that position. Together with your partner, you’re a master of appearing casual, yet threatening. You simply look like you’re a hard nut to crack, so people leave you alone. Still, if you’re really frightened, you run.
How sensitive am I?
Your more sensitive than you would let on. A cold environment can easily hurt you, as can cold and snide remarks by others (I decided this was true only recently...>.>)
Am I a "touchy-feely" person?
You don’t care about most people and show affection only to a selected few. And even those might describe you as ‘weird’. Still, you don’t like to suck up, even though you will show them your affection – in weird ways.
Am I very sure of myself, or am I more prone to doubt?
Apart from being arrogant, you can be quite doubtful of yourself. You’re pretty timid and shy and you probably have reason for being that way, too. Maybe you have had bad experiences in your past. Your displays of selfconfidence are usually nothing but show, unless you’re with your partner/family. You simply don’t manage all too well on your own. Okay, so you do manage, you can live through almost everything. But to create a home, you have to have others around you.
Do I hold grudges? How long? Would I seek revenge on my enemies, so to speak?
Very much so. You’re very good at bottling things up and you will use your anger when the right time comes.
How do I express my feelings? When I’m sad, do I cry or bottle it up inside? Does talking with others help or do I like to deal with my feelings by myself?
You bottle things up. You’re generally not great with feelings, being quite a loner, but human emotion is really your downfall. You’d probably avoid talking about feelings altogether, showing your affections in action rather than speech.
Do I have a temper? Am I quick to anger, or do I take things in stride?
You can be snappish and you definitely have a dark side. You bottle things up if it’s dangerous to act upon your anger right now, but you will come back with your troops or when the ‘enemy’ is weakened.
How do I communicate?
You have your own way to express yourself that is quite different from the way others tend to communicate. You complain a lot less than others, too. You’re glad with what you get and don’t appreciate whimsicalness at all. (I'm
typically pretty greedy, and want more; I also complain pretty frequently if things aren't going my way.) Not to say you don’t like to be babied once in a while. But you will show people exactly when you want them to stop and they should better listen because you might snap pretty fast. In fact, you’re pretty snappy if things don’t go your way. You will not be touched by people you don’t like and you will not do what they want you to do if you don’t like them. This might happen more in a family/friend context than with strangers, though, as you’re shy enough to never start fights with a stranger. (I'm more apt to start fights with a stranger, as it would lead to less stress later on. In this way I think I still keep to the “less stress is best” theme that I'm getting from jackals. So it's red, but I personally can see it as black.) And if you, there’s usually a family member/your partner there to help you. You feel not quite as shy when you’re with others and don’t mind being louder and bolder than usual with them.
Do I prefer to talk or to listen?
You love to listen and you love being told things – hearing stories or reading is always a treat to you.
Do I prefer to lead or to follow?
You prefer the path of least resistance, yet you’re naturally stand-offish. You don’t answer to anyone and even if you ‘follow’ a leader, you make damn sure to make them realize you’re not their underling. The only one’s you show respect to are those who raised you, period. And maybe those who could a.) severely hurt you or b.) those you hope to learn from. You don’t like responsibility outside your own family, though, any will rarely seek out positions of power. (I tend to at least OFFER to lead [maybe not actively seek], because I know I'd do better than others. Not everyone else thinks this, though.)
How protective am I? Am I more protective of people or things?
Both, really. You can count on your partner, but you will get jealous. In fact, you’re rather scary when jealous. You’re also possessive of things that are yours. Still, you do share everything with those you love and you don’t mind giving things you don’t need badly to others. As long as it doesn’t hurt you personally, you’re happy to help.
Am I more independant or dependant? Consider parents, friends, and strangers.
You’re making independent decisions, but you like to have back-up. You’re used to working as a pair (I tend to work alone; my job requires me to work by myself. OTHERWISE, I probably would work in a pair, so long as they did what they were told. Red and black.) and if you need directions, you will ask for them. You’re not someone to deny help with homework out of false pride, anyway. You’re an opportunist and will take whatever is offered. Since you also have your pride, you will probably try to show that you could have obtained the information without help, though. Basically, you’re independent in small doses and dependent on your friends/family. (I'm pretty independent, though I do like having them around.)
How would I react to being in a strange place all by myself? How about with my friends or my family?
In a territory unknown to you or even on the edges of the ‘territory’ known to you, you will turn into a far more cautious and anxious person others are used to see. It’s best not to shoo you out of your comfort zone as you might not work well there at all. You know how to make out your loved ones even in situations others would find daunting and unclear, too.
What time of day am I more active? Do I work best during certain times and play best during others?
You’re nocturnal to a fault. You like the dark as a cover and you generally work best if undisturbed. (You also have a knack for disappearing really fast.) If something is worrying you, you just cannot concentrate on the task ahead of you and will only be able to work when you learnt how to deal with your situation.
Would I consider myself more playful, or serious?
Both. With family, you’re playful and don’t mind playing rough, but you can be downright stiff with strangers.
What is my sense of humour?
We’re talking about you being a jackal-soul, darling. You probably don’t occupy yourself with ‘knock-knock-jokes’ all too long unless they happen to be pervy, contain dead babies or a really bad racial joke. Still, your jokes tend to be less outdrawn than those of those similar to you. You’re one for sharp one-liners and comebacks rather than longplanned practical jokes or long funny recitals.
Is my appearance important to me?
Let’s face it, you’re mostly a mess. You don’t dress to impress and you prefer your clothing to be inconspicuous. One could call you unkempt and you probably wouldn’t flinch, as you know it’s true – but you really don’t give a damn. You will dress up if needed and you have your own rugged way of looking good, but it’s clear you’ll never be dressed up to the nines without reason. You’re lazy as hell and that goes for your personal appearance.
Am I proud of my good qualities? Would I brag about them, or am I more modest?
You would try to appear modest – who knows in which situation you could need an adequate image of yourself, after all. Still, you tend to be a bit of a know-it-all and your manipulative nature makes it just too easy to outwit others sometimes. You like to show your intellectual superiority, if you happen to have the chance, but you’re normally not a braggart.
Am I a "show-off"?
No. Being a show-off would imply that you like the spotlight, which you despise.
How do I go about getting what you want? Am I manipulative, earnest, or driven?
First you would try to go the official way – maybe it works and you’re not putting yourself in danger that way. If that doesn’t have the right results, you might just manipulate your way through to your goal. You can be ambitious and don’t give up easily.
Can I pass up a bargain or a sale?
Yes. Though your shy nature is in your way here, you would much rather talk and bargain with a stranger than loose money. It’s the lesser of two evils for you.
Do I collect or hoard things?
Yes. Things could come in handy later on. What you don’t need now, you tend to store away for later.
When I have a belief, do I hold to it very strongly, or am I more likely to question it?
You’re pretty ruthless in this respect: If a belief aids you, you’re likely to keep it. You’re not averse to simply tossing it away if it isn’t useful or doesn’t aid you, though. If it has no effect on your whatsoever or it’s the belief of someone else, you’re likely to question.
How am I and authority? Do I obey without question, challenge just for the sake of challenging, or do I let my moral compass be my guide?
You won’t challenge for the sake of challenging. At least not if you expect some downsides. If there aren’t downsides and you generally just follow a crowd, you will make sure to show you’re nobody’s underling or pet. If you see upsides to following, you will shut your trap until you really can’t bear it anymore.
Do I enjoy life in a hierarchy? How would I rank myself? Do I enjoy being at that "rank"?
Unless it’s with family, you don’t usually form straight ‘hierarchies’. You’re friendly to everyone but aloof and make sure people know who they are messing with, if they happen to come to close. Your romantic partner/friend is at your level and it’s your family that generally ranks above you. Also, those you want to learn from rank above you as long as you deem it necessary. You will act submissively towards those who give you a legs-up, too, but that’s only until you got what you wanted or you grew sick of the game. You generally don’t enjoy being bossed around, and though you can be very docile and obedient with people you respect and love, even those are usually shown that you decide, not them.
Do I enjoy helping others? Or, do I need to be needed? When someone needs something from me, would I help willingly, enthusiastically, or grudgingly?
You don’t mind helping if you have the time anyway. You also don’t mind sharing what you don’t really need. You only get possessive when it comes to something you want. You might not share at all then and if it’s to extreme personal cost, you might not help, either.
When I’m passionate about something, how long does it stick? Am I obsessed for a period of time only to become burned out? How long does that take?
You’re very much someone who gets obsessed with something for a while and then drops it. Then again, your obsessions come again, even if they went away. You don’t need all too long to be burnt out and move to better, newer things. Or older things you loved before.
What would I describe as the perfect day?
Your perfect day would probably involve being alone a lot, but having the possibility to access social situations at will. You’d need something to do, too, otherwise you’d get restless. Probably some good food, lots of lazing around and a good chat with a loved one. You’re not very needy and as soon as you venture far from home, you’re easily stressed. A perfect is one that isn’t ‘special’ in any way and allows you just to laze around and maybe work less than usual. Your other perfect day would probably involve some extreme situation like skydiving. You like extremes.
Do I like to keep secrets? Do I have a lots of "skeletons in my closet"?
You’re probably not too good a secret keeper, unless with family. You will never tell something someone you consider family has told you in secret. If someone else has told you something, you might or might not blab it on to your loved ones.
Am I a worrier? How does worrying about things affect me? What sorts of things worry me more than others?
You’re very much a worrier. In fact, you kinda deserve a medal for worrying. You have third thoughts as opposed to second thoughts. Especially when it comes to your own safety and the safety of your family you tend to flip. You’re also worried about ‘being trapped’ somewhere you can’t get out. Still, you tend to solve things you worry about. You make a plan and then tackle the problem. But until you did, you can’t help worrying. You’re also quite easily startled.
How open am I to change? If I suddenly moved to an all new town, how would I react?
You can come to feel at home almost everywhere as long as you have enough freedom. The second you feel tied down, you become uneasy, fidgety and unhappy. You’re a free spirit – you don’t do well being confined (one could say you have trouble settling down; one sight of danger and you break camps) and you probably don’t do well with
commitments also. You do not like to be in an environment that’s mainly cold to you. You prefer people being polite and nice to you. You don’t mind if they are faking, either. You just want your peace. You would probably like to stick with your partner to investigate a new territory first. As soon as you made sure it’s a good place, you will ‘secure a home base’. Every home of yours has its outskirts and the mainland and you will keep mostly to the latter, never venturing all too far from your home. As for neightbours, you’re able to co-exist with almost everyone. You’re secretive and you rarely get yourself in trouble, making you – if not a downright pleasant neighbour – at least a bearable one.
Am I a picky eater? How about with other things? Do I like to try new things?
You like to try new things, as long as they don’t pose too much of a risk. If you have the choice, you’d rather stick with old things, if they’re available, and the new things look funny.
Do I go to great lengths to protect myself from danger, both actual and emotional?
You take calculated risks quite often. You’re speedy and know exactly what you can and what you can’t do. You’re not someone to overestimate yourself. You wouldn’t put yourself in physical danger if it was unlikely that you come out alive, but you like an adrenaline kick once in a while.
