ON THE SURFACE

Describe yourself:
First, some summarized personality test information:

Meyers-Briggs

INTJ

-- Perfectionists

-- When it comes to their own areas of expertise -- and INTJs can have several -- they will be able to tell you almost immediately whether or not they can help you, and if so, how. INTJs know what they know, and perhaps still more importantly, they know what they don't know.

-- INTJs do not readily grasp social rituals.

iPersonic

Independent Thinker

-- Analytical and witty persons

-- Self-confident

-- Excellent strategists

-- Eager for knowledge

-- Very good at grasping abstract concepts

-- Independent Thinkers love being as flexible as possible and, ideally, of being able to work alone because they often find it a strain having to make their complex trains of thought understandable to other people.

-- One of the more introverted personality types

-- Independent Thinkers enjoy implementing their concepts and enjoy the results.

Enneagram

Type Five: The Investigator

-- Alert, insightful, curious. They want to find out why things are the way they are.

-- Fives are always searching, asking questions, and delving into things in depth. They do not accept received opinions and doctrines, feeling a strong need to test the truth of most assumptions for themselves.

-- They tend to have deep insecurities about their ability to function in the world, feeling that they do not function as well as others. To feel more capable, they tend to "take a step back" in their mind, believing that their mind is the safest place to figure things out.

-- Fives spend a lot of time observing and contemplating. As they immerse themselves in their observations, they begin to internalize their knowledge and gain a feeling of self-confidence.

-- Knowledge, understanding, and insight are thus highly valued by Fives, because their identity is built around “having ideas” and being someone who has something unusual and insightful to say. For this reason, Fives are not interested in exploring what is already familiar and well-established; rather, their attention is drawn to the unusual, the overlooked, the secret, the occult, the bizarre, the fantastic, the “unthinkable.”

-- Thus, for their own security and self-esteem, Fives need to have at least one area in which they have a degree of expertise that will allow them to feel capable and connected with the world. They therefore develop an intense focus on whatever they can master and feel secure about.

-- The areas that Fives explore do not depend on social validation.


When interacting with others (people who are not interviewing me for jobs and whatnot), I tend to enjoy building a certain image of myself in their minds and then destroying that image. I usually come off as being very soft-spoken and insecure, very quiet, innocent, etc. In reality, I am very sarcastic, opinionated, and cynical. I have a dark/dry sense of humor, and enjoy sharing information about things that interest me that others may not find quite as delightful (example: I made my first real friend in college by texting her fun facts about infectious diseases).


I also like cats.


5 positive traits: Intelligent, driven, loyal, organized, efficient


5 negative traits: Procrastinator, cynical, distrustful, impatient, perfectionist


Hobbies/Interests: Reading, writing, coffee, linguistics, music, softball, purchasing old books, unnecessary medical information, exploring, museums, reading about how individuals with various physical deformities were often able to achieve fame and live comfortably while working in the circus (sometimes), movies, phonetics, books, and anything else that is able to capture my interest (currently it's Vaslav Nijinsky and maggots. Not at the same time.).


Strengths: I am very loyal when I meet someone who is able to put up with my personality, and I will reach out to them to make them feel better. I retain information fairly well, and when I put my mind to something I will work hard to achieve it. Although I am not very good with people, I do know how to tell people what they want to hear and am capable of playing the part of the social, competent individual which can come in very handy during job interviews.


Weaknesses: I am a perfectionist and am very hard on myself if I don't get something right the first time around. This often has adverse effects, such as my failing to get it right the next few times, resulting in a small but irritating Spiral of Self-Doubt. I am suspicious of others, have a tendency to hold grudges, and judge people if they are saying stupid things. I have also been told that I am very self-depricating.

BBC's Sherlock

Favourite character:

I like John, but I think with the airing of The Reichenbach Fall I shifted a bit toward Moriarty. I like to analyze him, mostly because I like to think about what kept Sherlock from ending up like Moriarty. Also because I love the way Andrew Scott plays him, especially the way he talks (not the accent). He uses contrasting volumes, where he'll be speaking softly one minute and then suddenly he's shouting. There aren't any indications that he'll start doing it, and so it always tends to come as a surprise and I always thought it was an interesting trait to give the character.

Does that make sense? I've tried to explain my love for the contrasting volumes before and it always comes out like a voiced keyboard smash complete with vague hand gestures.

Least favourite character:

I hate to be the person who says 'I like all of them!' but I really do. Even Anderson. They're so much fun, although I suppose if I'm expected to choose a least favorite, I would choose Sally. I think there's a line you can cross when you're being smug about something, and not only does she cross it, but she leaps over it and then taunts it as she runs away.


Favourite scene and why:

I love the scene where John meets Mycroft. I don't really have a reason for it.



Anything else you'd like to add:


Which stereotype do you think is more unsuited for you and why:

The Mother Figure. I can't really imagine myself being helpful on a regular basis, nor can I imagine myself being nearly as caring as Mrs. Hudson (well, I can, but I would prefer not to).
