    • Give us a general description of yourself.

    I am 24, female, and honestly feel a bit misunderstood. I am kind of one of those “loner types” who has always walked to the beat of their drum and tried not to be pretentious about it. I’ve always felt like I was “wired” differently in the sense of I don’t seem to process things like other people, hence me trying to find out my type.

    I am probably the basic bitXh everyone talks about in terms of style/outward apperance. I like clean cut, simple-but beautiful clothing. Think most of what the women wear in Suits… or that iconic white dress Sharon Stone wears in that scene in Basic Instinct, god I love that movie-

    • Is there a medical diagnosis that may impact your mental stability somehow?

    Yes and No… I have Depression, Anxiety and CPTSD but I haven’t been bothered by symptoms for about 2 years.

    • What do you do as a job or as a career (if you have one)? Do you like it? Why or why not?

    I am currently unemployed because of the pandemic. I live with my Mom because we moved countries this year, literally right before the lockdown happened here. She’s high risk and I have asthma. She works from home normally, so we just agreed both of us would stay home.

    Before I was unemployed, I was a Sales Operations Executive for a beverages company. I happened into that career as a temp and I loved it. I was the youngest there by about 10 years and I have no degree, so I felt like I proved myself.

    I went from temping in customer service to helping 14 Account Managers run some of the companies biggest accounts. I was helping provide beverages to some of the countries biggest pubs, hotel, restaurants, cruislines and airlines.

    I never would have known to go for that kind of job since all my experiance previous to that had been in veterinary medicine since my Dad is a Vet. I loved the problem solving, the logistics, the efficiency planning, the organization everything it was great.

    • If you had to spend an entire weekend by yourself, how would you feel? Would you feel lonely or refreshed?

    Honestly I’ve spent all of this lockdown alone for the most part- because my mom is still working shes usually busy.

    I hit my limit on being alone only last week. After being isolated since end of Feburary. I don’t know if that makes me a sociopath or psychopath- but I just really enjoy being alone with my thoughts. I like the possibilities- I mean you can literally think about anything.

    • What kinds of activities do you prefer? Do you like, and are you good at sports? Do you enjoy any other outdoor or indoor activities?

    I like reading most of all- everything and anything. I like the classics, Bram Stokers Dracula is my favorite.

    I also just endlessly read online, I usually start with an idea like “What do I want in a dream house?” Then I will research it, what is the best foundation, the best economically, can you make it green/ or self sustaining as a household?

    I will obsess about it- I will put alot of thought into it, pin 800 floor plans to pinterest, then once I’ve decided- move on. I’ll usually pick it back up later at some point for refining or to make sure it’s something I still want.

    I like collecting “useful” information that I might use later.

    I like sewing- it helps my mind settle down. I will go for walks regularly, I don’t like sports though, if you ever see me running it’s because something is chasing me. I like chess and strategy games alot.

    • How curious are you? Do you have more ideas then you can execute? What are your curiosities about? What are your ideas about – is it environmental or conceptual, and can you please elaborate?

    I’m pretty curious, I like knowing useful information like I said. I have read survival books “for fun” just incase I ever need it. I like reading the news to keep up on world events and try to “predict” what will happen next- I’m curious about that because I find it interesting to think about all the things we don’t know about.

    I am curious in the sense of I love problem solving most of all- any sort of symbolism, cryptography, unexplained mysteries is my mind porn. I love it, I love the ideas, the ruling things out, the theory… I could talk for hours.

    All of my ideas are conceptual. I am one of those people were I’ll have those big “Aha!” Moments. I’ll have something rolling around in my brain for a while then randomly be like- what if?!

    • Are you artistic? If yes, describe your art? If you are not particular artistic but can appreciate art please likewise describe what forums of art you enjoy. Please explain your answer.

    I’m artistic in the sense I do like drawing, painting and looking at art works (love museams)- finding the meaning. I like the freemasons relation to art…

    When I was younger my teacher pushed for me to go to a gifted and talented school specifically for art so I obviously can draw myself- but it’s never been top of the the list I’ve always loved science but I appreciate arts influence.

    For example, I enjoy art or designs practical applications to the world we live like la sagrada familia by Gaudi in Barcelona, Spain. The design, the time it took to accomplish the vision, the meaning behind all the structures on the building, the fact it is a functional church but it tells the story of a religion that has been so wide reaching and incorporated so heavily into the western culture we see today. How we got from Hermes Trigmestius and the influences from the hermetics to christianity to begin with. How hermetics relate to basically all of the bigger mythologies from the past from Greek, Roman, Egyptian… it all branches out in a never ending- ever expanding chain that we are all connected to. (Like I say, mind porn)

    I do love being creative, I love composing music and finding creative solutions to problems. Think outside the box.

    • What’s your opinion about the past, present, and future? How do you deal with them?

    I have “keep moving forward” tattooed onto my body so I am definitley future focused.

    To me, the future, the open possibilities the fact its unknown is really interesting.

    I do live in the moment but it’s not really that important it’s more a stepping stone to the future.

    The past… is past. I’ll remember something embarrassing I did 3 years ago but I generally dont think about it and I have terrible recall for larger segments in my life (trauma possibly but I also really don’t care about the past)

    • How do you act when others request your help to do something (anything)? If you would decide to help them, why would you do so?

    I usually help them even if I don’t want to.

    I maybe have read the great Gatsby too many times but I do belive in not judging people and if someone needs help- it’s actually in my benifit (usually) to get them up to speed and on the same page.

    Me personally I’d rather die than ask for help. I don’t like appearing weak or unknowadgeable. If I don’t know something I usually say “let me think about it and get back to you” or excuse myself to the bathroom and madly google to catch myself up.

    • Do you control others, even if indirectly? How and why do you do that?

    I’m not really a big controller of people, that would be left to my mother who I know is an ENTJ. My Dad is ESTJ. So they usually have it covered with the rules, and the enforcing of the rules, and the directing of the people.

    Me though, I’m more invisible. Catching all the things people miss, making sure things run well type person. I don’t like leading generally because I’m not great with confrontational situations BUT if no one is leading- or everybody doesnt know what to do, or people are generally being incompetent I step in.

    • What are your hobbies? Why do you like them?

    Like I say, sewing, walking, reading, I tarot read for myself- not that I think it’s a science but it’s fun, kind of like chess, it can sometimes help me decide how I’m feeling based on how wrong or right the cards are.

    I like watching crash course or reading about subject I think about going back to school for- like organic chem. I also collect old antiques- though my collection is small.

    • What is your learning style? What kind of learning environments do you struggle with most? Why do you like/struggle with these learning styles? Do you prefer classes involving memorization, logic, creativity, or your physical senses?

    I actually memorize things by “picturing” the page I read it on, I don’t know if it counts as photographic memory or just good visualization. I am usually more in tune with lessons that are creative or you get to discuss the topic. I get bored really easily if the topic is delivered in a very bland and slow way. It has to be fast paced for me to hook onto it.

    In school my math teacher hated me so wouldnt let me “move up” a tier to the faster paced classes so I got bored. I studied for other subjects in her lessons as I sat at the back. She marked me as an unmarked because I wasnt learning anything and tried to get me kicked out of my triple science courses because “you cant be good at science if you are bad at math, you are finding a way to cheat” (I was getting As). She told me I could never catch up without her teaching… basically being an all round asshole. So I pulled my grade up from an Unmarked 0 to a B by religiously studying all the material for 2 weeks. Fuck you. You know who you are.

    • What are your fears? What makes you uncomfortable? What do you hate? Why?

    Most of this stuff relates to my traumas. I have a fear of flying, a fear of death, and am a mild hypochondriac. It all presented after the trauma of suffering CSA t age 10 perpetrated by my grandfather.

    In actuality I fear not being good enough. Fear of failure is really the biggest thing I experiance. It’s hard to explain though because it’s more about fear of failing myself than other people.

    I do fear not giving people a good experiance- but I can’t say I care what they think which is a weird dichotomy I guess but I kind of am a weird person.

    • What do the “highs” in your life look like?

    “I am an amazing person I can do anything, be anything, I can strategize anything, I can be confident and accomplish alot!”

    • What do the “lows” in your life look like?

    “I can even tie shoes right. I will never accomplish anything. I am going to slip through life being completley average…” lies in bed for 2 days

    • Imagine you are alone in a blank, empty room. There is nothing for you to do and no one to talk to. What do you think about?

    “I wonder what my myers briggs type is? Maybe I am INTJ? But they are usually confident aren’t they? Maybe INFJ? I don’t think I’m very feeling considering I won’t cry in front of other people. I will bite my tongue not to. Why is that? Am I defective? Why am I weird about expressing my emotions?…” obsessed about it and decided to post on hq.

    • Do you break rules often? Do you think authority should be challenged, or that they know better? If you do break rules, why?

    Break? No. Bend? Yes.

    My mom has always said that I am expert at not really breaking the rule but finding the loophole or finding a way to make it not apply to me…

    I am good with authority up to a point. If they are especially micromanaging or want to control every little thing I LOSE IT. If they are managers or what not that allow you some room to be independent I do much better.

    One of my favourite movies is V for Vendetta. So. I’m very rebellious, I did the goth emo alternative thing in school. Yeah I think there is a place for challenging authority- I also on the flipside so see it as a nessicarly evil.

    My tag line has always been I don’t involve myself in politics because there are just too many loud mouthed SJWs who will argue semantics at no end.
