I read this personality profile from an app on Facebook, and even though most of them are just dumb little parlour tricks, this one actually hit me fair square on the nose. I thought I should elaborate, but you can't do much of that on FB.
Temperament - Idealist
You are the quintessential dreamer - spending more time thinking about the possibilities that the world holds for you, rather than your reality. You don't settle for anything less than what you truly desire and you work very hard. You tend to live in every place except the present - you are prone to daydreaming about the future and re-thinking the choices you made in the past. Sometimes you get overly caught up in your thoughts.
Me: How true. All of it. I don't think there is anything wrong with wishing for the most and the best for yourself. When I really want something, I work damn hard to make it happen, because no one is going to give it to you. I do have a problem with re-thinking choices I made in the past. I don't think I would want to change any of them - those choices made me the person I am today - but I do think about how I could have done something better, whether I should have said something, etc. What's done is done - but my mind has to rehash these things over and over.
Interests - Simple
You are continually pursuing a simpler and less complicated life - you don't allow yourself to fall victim to all of the "should do's" that society continually bombards you with. You are thoughtful about your life choices and think in terms of yourself, others and the world in which we live. You have a great sense that we are part of something much bigger and we much be good to others, if we want others and the world to be good to us.
Me - This is true. If I could live in a cabin in the woods at the end of a path with a well and a good vegetable garden with Peanut and Latte, I would be in heaven. I don't like to make big decisions based on what everyone else is doing. I like to think alot of what decisions we are making that impact the earth and environment and I always like to spread good karma so it can come back to me. Karma can be a bitch!
Amusement - Thoughful
You are easily stressed out and overwhelmed - you need to take care of yourself first and foremost. Because you tend to be self-reflective, you know your limits quite well and much remember to not exceed those limits. When you overwhelm your life with obligations and responsibilities, you tend to shut down and go into yourself even further. Take some time to find your serenity and kick back your feet.
Me - How true, it's hard to admit this to myself but it is kind of hard not to when I am so sick right now. You have to be self-reflective and know your limits when you are an epileptic. If you don't, you'll end up in some serious trouble or dead.
Passion - Traditional
Your notions about romance are viewed as unrealistic by many, but don't let that stop you. When you think of romance, you think of huge gestrues of commitment, sacrifice and love like we see in the movies. Flowers, chocolate, and wine are just some of the ways to your heart. You want to feel loved and treasured by your partner and you expect to be courted, admired and hotly pursued. You long for old fashioned dating.
Me - I think I believed this a decade ago, but have kind of given up on all this. I'm not going to get this ideal relationship and I am unwilling to settle for the "next best." My life can be perfect without this in my life.
