How did you learn so much about enneagram and mbti?

I have a questionable talent for appearing more knowledgeable than I actually am and not doubting myself when talking about things.
And I know how to do fast and efficient research and what word combinations give useful google results. I don’t even have like that one ultimate source where I get my info from, and I don’t think it’s a good approach to rely on a single source. It’s more like reading 100 different sources within a day and summarizing the overlaps into key information. There is something to learn from everything, even from sites like mbti-databank or personalitycafe, even from biographies of INFPs thinking they are INFJs. You just need to put everything into context and [fake Ni-voice] put the puzzle pieces together.

Test recommendations:

Enneagram: https://www.qzzr.com/c/quiz/268918/enneagram-tritype-test

MBTI: http://www.keys2cognition.com/explore.htm

Both tests should be used as starting points only though and it never hurts to do further research upon your results. And like all personality tests they require a high degree of self-awareness. You won’t get correct results if you don’t already have a decent idea about what kind of person you are.

Do you think you know more about mbti or about the enneagram?

I’d say Enneagram. But mainly because there are more interpretations to it and it’s easier to “own it”.

imagine rami and sami

young, in their teenage years where they’re struggling with body image and identity. they talk to each other late at night, when they know their mother would be angry at them for staying up so late. sami’s in rami’s room, and they’re talking about their insecurities, their blossoming feelings for women, and their self confusions. they insult each other jokingly, in a loving manner the way siblings like too, but don’t hesitate to correct each other when they throw across the general “why am i so short?” “hey man, do you think people actually like me?”, tending to each other’s egos, bonding and loving each other in the way only twins do. “it’s funny we’re twins.” rami says, and sami nods in silence. they talk to each other about their aspirations, their dreams and they support each other at everything, listening to each other even when they don’t even know what the other’s talking about. they love each other.

gender is weird what is gender

occasionally im like “girl is fine..?” but the word “woman” makes me uncomfortable when applied to myself if im not talking about social impacts, like how society views/treats me and the group they view as women, and while I identify with those experiences i am ???? about actually feeling any gender?

like this morning im ehhh nope my gender is baggy sweaters

which… isnt a gender but what even IS a gender?

idk.

uhm… soooo… i wasnt gonna talk abt this bc i thought, maybe it wasnt a good idea, but this has been plaguing me for nearly a week now n im just, trying 2 hold on2 the thought that if i maybe tell u guys this n am very sincere n honest about it, just venting will make me feel better.

so, yeah… uh, the thing is… ive been thinking that, maybe u guys have kinda lost interest in me? like as a person? n even as blog? in general? i dont know what exactly happened 2 make things go this way, but lately its just been so quiet n ive felt very lonely n ive concluded its probably something i did, or something i didnt do n shouldve done…

but anyway, im not rly… asking for pity, i just felt like being honest about how i feel, cuz theres no point in me pretending 2 be fine w it, bc, no, i just… i guess i just want ppl 2 talk 2 me again, 2 tell u the truth i miss those days in which ud guys send me lotta asks n every single day id open up my inbox n there theyd be, n i miss interacting w u guys, n its just been… so quiet… where have all my friends gone? the ppl who liked 2 share hcs n stories w me? im not mad at u for going, of course ur allowed 2 leave whenever 2 ask but ive been wondering why? did i do something wrong? is there something i should do 2 fix it? is there anything i can do about this in general? if uve got an idea, n its not 2 much trouble (not that u have 2 of course!!) could u maybe tell me? i just… i dont know. i dont like this silence. it feels weird. n i think i only realized recently how unnaturally quiet it has gotten.

You have a mostly adult fan base. Why do you keep everything so G rated? You don't cuss, talk about sex, your love life or anything. Do you think we can't handle it?

Yup! That’s what I think!

Lol no!! I do talk about my love life to an extent, only to the point I, myself, am feeling up to talking to you all about it. And as much as you may think I have a mostly adult audience, I do have lots of kids who follow me, and it is a great opportunity to keep my videos accessible to them, while also discussing things that may not get to be talked about a lot in school (Black History, women’s rights, gender identity, body positivity, etc.). Future topics will cover other things like sexuality, gender identities, possibly even safe practices, but my channel is still relatively new. And it’s not just kids, a lot of people of all ages would prefer not to watch something with expletives or sexual content. It’s not that they can’t handle it, but that they would prefer not to have it, or that they would like to watch something while there are kids around. I’m not even a big curser myself, although I’m never offended if anyone were to curse around me. I’m just a big believer in keeping my videos accessible to all!

Key: If I am anxious about something personal, I keep it to myself until I see Minho and the words just fly out of my mouth before I even notice. He doesn’t tell me what to do but instead he just hugs me and tells me that he’ll be there if I ever need him. Because of his words, I will always feel a little better after I talk to him.

“ugh. you LOVE me?”
“don’t make that face. it’s not like i want to. you’re loud and you talk too much about television for an adult and every single member of your family has friended me on facebook despite the fact that i’ve never spoken to most of them, and most of them have very poor punctuation. in fact, this whole situation is very embarrassing. like herpes. but like herpes, i don’t think it’s curable without taking action. so here i am. telling you. i love you.”
“can you even hear yourself right now?”
“so … what are your thoughts?”
“what are my thoughts? about your i-love-you-like-herpes speech?? which, p.s., herpes is incurable. that shit’s always gonna flare up again.”
“exactly. the metaphor is appropriate.”

I don’t know if I will have the time to write any more letters, because I might be too busy trying to participate. So, if this does end up being the last letter, I just want you to know that I was in a bad place before I started high school, and you helped me. Even if you didn’t know what I was talking about, or know someone who’s gone through it, you made me not feel alone. Because I know there are people who say all these things don’t happen. And there are people who forget what it’s like to be sixteen when they turn seventeen. I know these will all be stories some day, and our pictures will become old photographs. We all become somebody’s mom or dad. But right now, these moments are not stories. This is happening. I am here, and I am looking at her. And she is so beautiful. I can see it. This one moment when you know you’re not a sad story. You are alive. And you stand up and see the lights on the buildings and everything that makes you wonder. And you’re listening to that song, and that drive with the people who you love most in this world. And in this moment, I swear, we are infinite.

you guys ever stop and think about how amazing maggie sawyer is? i just rewatched all of her scenes and maggie is always so calm and supportive. she listens to alex and she never gets defensive, not once, not even during alex’s “we’re not friends” speech. maggie just listens and listens and listens. and at the end of that episode, she shows up at alex’s doorstep and she says “i heard everything you said and if you never want to talk to me again i’ll respect that” this bitch listened to alex, reflected on what she said and decided that yes! alex is hurting! i want her in my life but maybe that’s not what’s best for her! and i’ll respect that! like bitch i love this song it’s my favorite

I swear to god, if Lena somehow comes out of everything as a villain, it’ll be one of the most underwhelming bullshit that’ll ever come out of anything. Like, it isn’t going to be a betrayal that’s going to shock you, just leave you entirely disappointed because yet another character with so much potential is reduced to the stereotype of their name. I need a legitimately surprising plot twist if there ever will be one. No cheap deaths, no “a villain after all” bullshit. Just a genuinely surprising HOLY SHIT THAT HAPPENED plot twist that nobody really thought could ever happen.

that’s why i snapchatted your best friend and
that’s why i told you about that other guy because
i am only good at burning bridges and this is getting too serious too close too much like something good something I don’t deserve so
i’m hitting the ground running, you know?
you won’t even see it coming.

last time I smoked weed (two years ago lol) I got really existential while listening to Childish Gambino when i was at Ryan’s house and i took a couple hits and was like what the hell am I going to do with my life? Am I going to find my soulmate some day? Do my friends actually value my feelings and do they value me for who I am or are friends just using me for their own gain? Is it okay to root for the New England Patriots even though I’m not from New England? All these questions were going through my mind and I was breaking down. I didn’t know what was going on I didn’t know I had all of these pent up emotions that were being brought out. I was scared. I wanted to talk about my dilemnas with Ryan but the last time i tried that, he made fun of me I need to start letting myself feel emotions rather than smoke my troubles away. So I quit weed. Granted, I still hang out with Ryan but it’s just not the same bc I dont smoke anymore :/

Just so everyone knows, If TJLC isn’t explicitly confirmed in S4, this blog is turning into an Anderson/Sherlock ship blog. Meta, headcanons, ficlets. Maybe even art. I’m not even slightly joking. That’s how confident i am. I’ll draw my new otp while wearing my homemade “i have no idea what I’m talking about” t-shirt I promised someone the other day. I have no problem being wrong – if it happens I’d gladly suit up. I don’t take myself that seriously. Either way, I think my followers are in for a treat come 2017.

When my finger touched her arm I couldn’t even remember what we were talking about. She was telling a story about something but her voice slowly faded. Silence in my head but music surrounded the car. Everything stopped in that moment. And for a split second it felt like the stars were among us. The biggest spark from the smallest accidental touch.
