“Dreamy Idealist”

If you’re in some way are interested in psychology, you’ve probably heard of the theory of introverts and extroverts. I’ve thought about this lately and which of those two I am so I decided to look into it a bit more and to take a test.

I did read a book about this a few years ago and I remember I found it hard to define myself to either one, for example:

“The introverted seen as extremely inward person. Is the disposition often silent
and aloof. Not impulsive in their actions and prefer an orderly and predictable
life. In school, they often do better than the extrovert and the possible defection from
the studies often depend on the psyche more than the studies themselves. They are
pain-sensitive and does not tolerate stress well, it lowers rather than heightens their
performance. They are not very impressionable, but know what they want. Prefer an intellectual humor in front of a more brazen move. Is usually less sexually active than the extrovert.”

In this description I can say yes when it comes to the inward bit, I do prefer a night home instead of a night out, I don’t answer well to stress but I do need a deadline to make something happen and I do know what I want. The other things isn’t that clear. And then we have the description o an extrovert:

“The extrovert is a typical social person who likes to socialize, has many friends and is happy at parties. They are impulsive, impressionable and not afraid of the unplanned, they have an ability to take things as they come. For the extroverted raises the excitement their performance as they like challenges. In cases where they drop off an education often depend on the study itself and nothing else. Their humor is often more brazen and black. They are often more sexually active than most people who are introverts.”

I do love to hit the party once in a while and do often find myself in the middle of the dance floor, I’m impressionable and often do things spontaneously and when it comes to humor it’s definitely black. When it comes to sex I simply say, no comment. 🙂

This is the result of my test, I just googled and picked one out of the blue it surely exists many more like this out there. Enjoy, and i posted a link to this test is down below.

Here’s the result, could work a bit on my thinking-feeling parameter but in some way it is what makes me being me, and the judge-perceiving parameter’s all so something to think about, I think I could use a little judgement sometimes to spare me some expensive lessons. Over all I think this was a good test and if you wish to have your own test here’s the link to the same test I took.

What do you think about dividing people into boxes? Is it right,wrong or even necessary in today’s society? Please comment below, in my facebook page or in my group .

Have a great week!

The softer it is, the harder it gets

A question: If you were in search for a specific product to buy and you had three companies providing you the same product, which one would you choose to buy from? And what would be the crucial thing that lead you to this decision?

I came to think of the values we think matters in our decisions, whether it’s the job we apply for or the jeans we buy. I’m experiencing that today it’s the “hard values” that matters all over in our society for example in our hospitals, jobs and even the schools. By hard values I mean things like money, productivity and material gains.

In the healthcare it gets harder and harder to get a response from a doctor unless you’re in a physical ill condition that can’t be fixed with a surgery or a pill, as an employee in a company today you have non or little value unless you work at the top of your ability at as little cost as possible and in the school system there is a lack of resources needed to take care of individuals that does not “abide in the ranks” so to speak.

What happened to the soft values, the empathy, the praising and the friendliness of each other? I so wish for those things to shine trough in our lives. I wish to have a doctor who looks me in the eyes and asks how’s it going when I visiting him/her with an invisible disorder. I wish to have a job in a company that really cares about their employees and looks after them even when they’re having a hard time reaching the sales budget for this month. I wish to have a school where it’s ok to be different as an individual without the condemnation and the conditioning to fit in.

I know my answer on the questions above, I would buy from the person who’s giving me a good gut feeling and shows me friendliness and interest in my persona.

I have mistreating my inner voice and I have ignored it several times over the years, but now I’ve learned the hard way not to go for shiny objects without looking in to things first. I haven’t always done the right thing for myself in order to fit in, but now I choose to take the path that’s mine to take.

All that shines isn’t gold.

“Do what is right, not what is easy”

Take care of yourselves and each other
