just-doing-what-i-can-for-the-greater-good

anonymous asked:

I test as an INFP on every MBTI test I've ever taken. Reading cognitive functions, I kind of see myself in some of the INFJ functions, even though I know that they're essentially very different. For example, my Fi means that I can't imagine compromising on my values, ideals and identity but somehow I identify with Fe because it's not always about me - there is such thing as the greater good and my everyday battles involve balancing the two. What do you think?

I personally find online test tend to be somewhat inaccurate so I decided to devise a new method to type people. All you have to do is pick one book that speaks to you on a spiritual level. Your choice will inevitably reveal your true personality. Here you go:

Okay I’m kidding. Just come off anon to let me help you sort this out.

When I'm not in class...

  • Me:Christian Bale... then do Heath Ledger as Joker
  • Friend:*nails both of those*
  • Me:Do Samuel L. Jackson
  • Friend:I can't do him
  • Me:Okay then... do Frozone from the Incredibles
  • Friend:*Frozone Voice* YOU TELL ME WHERE MY SUIT IS WOMAN WE ARE TALKING ABOUT THE GREATER GOOD
  • Me:That's Samuel L. Jackson
  • Friend:Huh... guess I can do him then
  • Other Friend:*laughs*
  • Me:Why are you laugh *replays what was just said* never mind
  • Other Friend:*laughs more*
  • Me:Oh shut up and eat your left twix

lycurgus’s death is totally noble and For The Greater Good and all but im just fuckign. i can’t stop finding it funny that he basically just went “haha what are you going to do now? you’re gonna Not follow through on my last wish??” fcuk

the more I watch Merlin the more I realize Merlin is actually one of the evilest people I’ve ever seen?

the guy just choses when killing in cold blood is wrong or right and then he acts like he’s doing it “for a greater good” all the while he seems to be completely not even phased by brutal murder… and he is all “just cause someone had a vision about this it doesn’t mean it will happen! I can’t blame someone for something that hasn’t happened yet!! unless its Mordred, then I should just let him die cause whatever I don’t like him”

he knows the power he has and he uses it for his own good, he manipulates Arthur and others to do what he wants them to

It’s not like it has been the case all the time? He grew into it as the show went on. I think given the right circumstances Merlin would be a very dangerous villain, and still thinking he is doing the right thing

that evil bastard

[ can I just say I love this version of Charles? He has such twisted morals && can be manipulative yet he still believes what he's doing is the right thing. Other "villains" (I put that in quotes cause I actually haven't read the comics of this version of Charles so I don't know the ENTIRE story) are after one thing; power. But you write Xavier in a way that shows he's after more. He wants the world to be a better place. Even if his idea of the greater good doesn't match everyone else's. ]

what is your opinion on my portrayal?

;; See, that’s exactly why I adore him so much! I’m so glad that I’ve managed to get that across okay, the fact that he may be a twisted evil sod, but he genuinely believes he’s doing the right thing and that he’s done/doing what’s best for his world as well as his himself. xD Thank you, just, omg, I’m over the moon that you like him! :D

“Most vegans were not born vegan, of course. It takes you a long time and a lot of learning to come to what’s right. But you feel the difference in what you do as soon as you make the choice. I felt that it was difficult to be just like anyone else who kind of doesn’t go with what’s sort of dogmatic in our society. It can be hard or at first when you’re not as content with yourself and happy, you miss out on just the greater social narrative that everyone else gets to ascribe to. I feel like ever since giving up animal products I could like lift a car! Every second of every day I feel so good! But I think that there’s definitely a letting go of this narrative that you have been so inundated with your entire life. It’s so much more than saying I don’t eat cheese now. Others disapproval is something you might have to live with.”

I am a perfectionist. In the worst way possible. It’s my disease but at the same time it allows me to think and dream beyond infinity.
My perfectionism makes me strive for better, bigger and greater. It bursts my expectations of what I need to be and become through the roof, just so that when I wake up every morning I can be a better version of myself. Yet, most of my mornings are filled with destructive thoughts on what I’ve accomplished so far, leaving me dissatisfied and keeping me from doing what I love to do.

But what I’ve come to realize overtime, is that even though sometimes I’m torn by my reflection not being good enough in my eyes, I don’t have to look far ahead before I can allow myself to feel happy and satisfied with everything I see in the mirror. I don’t have to look far at all.

Something greater must have been hidden inside my core all along to help me keep moving ahead when I found myself on the brink of disaster. To guide me when I felt like being a lost cause. To help me get up when I was down.

Realizing this gives me strength. My perfectionism is both my demon and my guardian. I can’t always control which of them will be there the next morning I wake up. But what I can control is to be accepting of both of them being there. If I accept what I am, who I am and whatever it is I will or might be, I hope I can blow some steam of my demons and give my guardian a break every now and then.

I am a perfectionist. In the best way possible. It’s my greatest asset in life and sometimes it makes me insecure and brings me down.
And that’s OK. That’s how I accept it to be and no amount of followers or bag of M&M’s will change that.

I wrote these lyrics when I wasn’t feeling satisfied with what I saw when I woke up.
I woke up today and I saw a strong woman who wrote a smashing tune.

‘All I wanna see, is a better me when I open my eyes’

Shoutout to #Duskus for musically telling this story with me.

I made no such assumption. The point was I am, and backed it up with my own actions. Further, no, you're really not drawing logical conclusions as zero things I said implied isolationism. Nor non-interventionism. And better arguments? Well, see what the person I originally asked has said about extending liberty, a far better argument than any form of greater good or false choice. But, seeing as my thumb is cramping, I'll stop sending this. For the record, I respect you. Not 'still,' just do.

“I made no such assumption. “ Have you noticed how this conversation has branched into several different lines?  And I’ve accused you of several assumptions….so I don’t know exactly which one you’re denying here.

“ The point was I am, and backed it up with my own actions. “ I can only assume you’re referring to the military thing here, it’s still kind of unclear, in which case if I’m not meant to make the assumption that service=pro-intervention why even bring it up.  If that is not the assumption I was supposed to make then the inclusion is so random and so pointless one would have to assume you’re just typing nonsense for the sake of nonsense.  If that is not the assumption there is no point, you can’t have it both ways where I have to make that assumption and that I can’t call you on it.


“ you’re really not drawing logical conclusions as zero things I said implied isolationism. “

You compared nation building to the conquest of the Roman Legions.  You deny the choices history gives us and merely turn to mythical third way, but give no idea what it is.  You talk about cost when rights should usually trump that.  All of these are the language and assumption of isolationists.

“extending liberty, a far better argument than any form of greater good or false choice.“  When did I not tie this to extending liberty?  Defeating tyranny and extending liberty are kind of tied together.  Just as defending liberty is part of extending liberty.  Are you on drugs?

“But, seeing as my thumb is cramping, I’ll stop sending this.”  Oh thank god, any more of this drivel and I was going to start vomiting. 

“For the record, I respect you. “ Couldn’t give a fuck if I tried.

the alchemist, the canterbury tales, lord of the rings

what are your current plans for the future? will you be upset if they don’t work out?

“ I guess I’m planning on starting painting and maybe something… bigger too but for now I’ll just speak about painting. Ahaha.. “

“ I don’t really know what else will stop me with that other than myself… So I guess I will be a little angry at myself… “

if someone is hypocritical, do you point it out?

“ If I can… “

“ But y’know if it involves people that make me nervous. Then …I think I might rethink it. Gotta think consequences and all. “

is it important to work for the greater good of the world?

“ Mm. Yeah, I mean… Someone’s gotta do good right?  “

 But I guess you can still go wrong with it though. I think my cause isn’t too bad though… “

I know half of my graceland posts are just me shit talking Briggs but I don’t think he does insane shit for a greater good, for the sake of the mission or anything like that, we can all see it would’ve been better for the mission to tell the others what he was up to, I think he gets a thrill out of manipulating people even if he doesn’t realize it, I think he’s sick and he doesn’t even know how to do things if not by lying either to the others or to the FBI anymore

Yours to keep

I would remove it from you, but what good will that do if it comes from within. 🌀I am no greater than anyone in this world but neither am I inferior because we all have just as much greatness to do good and harm to other beings so be responsible. Learn from darkness so you can bear the light and find your balance to show the world we exist.🌹Because I care I want you to be careful there is always a cause and an effect.

I don’t want to be here anymore. I fucking hate being here. My “home” feels like a prison and I don’t recognize any of what used to bring me happiness here. I want to punch the wall till my hand breaks, maybe then I’ll finally feel something other than anger. I wish there was a way out that I was brave enough to go through with. I still want to help people but I’m not smart enough or strong enough or good enough to do that. I can never help the ones I care about and even with random acts of good I try to do for people I never feel like I make a difference, no matter how hard I try. The world has no use for me. I’m meant for nothing more than an opened door for someone who will do much greater things than I. I can’t do what those around me expect of me and I’ll just end up disappointing everyone in the end. I want something crazy and dramatic to leave me no choice but to run, and run far. Maybe when I finally stop running I’ll find someplace where I can help someone, where I’m more than just a useless kid, wandering the streets in search of a purpose.

Gurl, how did you work up the courage to move away from your fam and friends and a familiar place? I'm so depressed with my life, mostly my job and the people in my life, and I've admired your ability to just move and get a job and get friends. I'm such a nervous lady, and I never used to be...I hope I can do what you did one day. This is an assumption, but you seem to be good at letting go of the past. Anyways, much love from one pitty mama to another!

Aww hi, I think I just keep my mindset like I’m destined for greater things, people and opportunity.
My mental confidence sky rockets, it’s a Taurus thing. I have infinite possibilities that can be gifted to me and will be.
Start some positive affirmations like “I will do this, I will let go and be happy”
And start believing it. The greatest weapon are your mind and heart but they have to work together.
And that keeps me happy and stable.
It all starts with your mindset and attitude
Know your worth and once you find it.. acknowledge it. You can let go of the lesser value and encourage yourself to do great.
