INTJ: The kid who is at the top of the class even though they don’t seem to work nearly as hard as the other people up there. They are an extreme nerd, but you wouldn’t guess it by just looking at them. Are (or at least seem) extremely confident and put-together, which, along with their unequivocal dislike of most people, makes other people who don’t know them well nervous around them.
INTP: The kid who has straight A’s even though they haven’t picked up the text book since they brought it home. Obviously a nerd and/or geek. They hardly talk to anyone, except to the teacher in order to pose theoretical questions that don’t have a solid answer. Their backpack is more like an endless collection of miscellaneous junk.
ENTJ: The kid who is the president of 4 different clubs and captain of a sport, whether or not they actually tried to obtain these positions. May or may not be at the top of the class, but everyone is convinced that they are. They slightly scare everyone else.
ENTP: The kid who never pays attention or does any work, yet is always on the honor roll. They know and talk to literally everyone and teachers love them. They are the supreme random trivia champions. They would crush everyone on the debate club if they joined, but that would mean researching a specific topic for too long which is too much effort and not enough pay off.
How do you like keeping arboreals as opposed to ground living snakes? Is it a lot harder?
I wouldn’t say it’s necessarily harder; it just has its own set of challenges. Arboreal snakes tend to have different issues come up regarding husbandry and enrichment–for example, when I rescued my Amazon tree boa, the guy who abandoned her said she would never perch and that’s why he didn’t want her (along with the horrible mite infestation she came with).
It turned out she just didn’t like the perches he was providing her and once I gave her something that allowed her more points of contact, she started perching during the day a lot more. Animals seldom do things for no reason and part of being a good keeper is trying to troubleshoot these problems from the animal’s perspective.
Arboreal snakes also tend to behave a little differently in regards to handling. In my experience they tend to be more alert and high strung (this doesn’t necessarily mean aggressive, it might just mean you need to pay more attention to where your fingers are moving around when you handle them to avoid startling them). Treating mites on arboreals can be a bigger ordeal since I’ve found that they’re more susceptible to getting stressed by the bathing process.
I practice what I call “husbandry handling” with my ATB because she’s a slightly nervous animal who prefers not to be handled often–however, I need to be able to do it with as little fuss and stress as possible in case she ever got sick or injured and needed hands-on medical treatment. This basically means I take her out on a regular basis and practice touching gently all over her body in the ways I might need to in order to provide medical assistance, but try to make it as stress-free and short as possible. She prefers to be a hands-off pet, and that’s fine! She’s still pretty chill for an ATB and I’m grateful she’s tolerant of husbandry handling.
Holly, on the other hand, is very laid back and doesn’t mind being handled. I’ve met CBB chondros that were much more nervous and didn’t like handling at all, so this seems to be a matter of individual temperament. She had an infected tooth last year from hitting the tongs and I was able to get in her mouth to treat it with relatively little fuss and stress for her.
This got a lot longer than I meant it to, so I guess the TL;DR version is that keeping arboreals is definitely different, but not necessarily harder if you have the experience and resources to do it properly. I’ve only kept chondros and Amazon tree boas though as far as arboreals go so that’s about all I can speak for.
Types as Roommates (based on actual roommates I’ve had as an INTP)
ESFP: Rarely around, because they are always out with friends. When they are home they usually talk about how cool their lamp is. And you don’t disagree, because it’s a pretty cool lamp. “I really appreciate you, dude” they say everyday after their shift, until you hate them and their stinky socks all over the bathroom floor.
ENFP: They are SO! EXCITED! that you’re finally home to hang out with them even though they’ve been going and doing things all week. Dishes are everywhere. The rabbit is out of his cage and has chewed through the electrical wires. The fire alarm is going off again.
INFP: The best thing about living with them is their music taste. You keep asking yourself if they are really as laid back as they say they are? Their poster selection is haphazard, their trash can is filled to the brim, and they show everyone who comes through their dorm their collection of vinyl sex feet. However, one day you get a terrifying message via text. You drank from their cup. That was the special cup. You shouldn’t have drank from that cup.
ISFP: THC is more important to oxygen to them. They line their room with trippy tapestries, and a list of “cartoon conspiracies” is listed on their door. During that really promiscuous phase of yours, they didn’t say a thing every night you must have waken them up moaning. You couldn’t believe that anyone could be so laid back. Then, exams came. No one had ever been more vigilent, and more terrified than they are during exam week. “Aderall” your friends say, “They’re hyped up on amphetamines,” but you know what they’re like on amphetamines, and this is a step above.
INTP: You’ve watched the same anime from start to finish 3 times this week, but you don’t have the nerve to tell them that you’re tired of it. They’re taking up all of the couch space too. Because while they might have spent the first 2 weeks of being moved in creating the perfectly efficient and comfortable bedroom (complete with a pillow fort), they fall asleep in the living room most nights with their heated blanket and a wikipedia article up on their laptop. You peek at their laptop expecting to see something related to their favorite video game or the classes they are taking, but “substitutional insect genitalia” doesn’t fit either of those categories.
ENTP: When they have friends over, they don’t just have friends over. The banter is endless and it almost always lasts until 5 am. Their is only so much existential philosophy you can take, and that is literally none when it it is being shouted by drunken satanists during the golden hour.
ISTP: They really like sex. Sex is their favorite subject and they feel the need to tell you that frequently. If you don’t update them on your current sexual status, they might get a little bit grumpy. Their pet names for you include “slut” and “bitch”. They read trashy novels and their television choices are questionable to you, but it matters little because you have finally found a roommate that simultaneously respects your boundaries and recognizes you for the asshole you are.
ISFJ: Tea has suddenly become very important to you. You memorized your roommates favorite teas for every occasion, every ailment and every time of day, before you even realized it was happening. You wonder how you know this, without even knowing their last name or what they do for a living. What time do they come in at night? Do they have friends? What kind of music do they listen to? You imagine that they spend most of their time with their family, and at work, but it’s anybodies guess.
ENFJ: The greatest sin of yours, is the sink that you leave untouched. Once a week, they clean it begrudgingly. With passive-aggression with more fervor than all of the crusades. They are experimenting with brewing beer and cider. They are also studying seminary. They never sleep. You try to explain to friends of friends that your roommate is going to be in the ministry, but they never believe you, because they’ve only ever seen your roommate black-out wasted. “Before I was a Christian,” your roommate says drunkenly “I would have considered myself bisexual”. Your eyes have never rolled so far back into your head. You really wish you could light a joint about now.
ESTJ: Late night chats about the economy have never been so interesting, but really, they are not interesting enough. Why in the fuck are you living with a business major? You down another beer and go to bed with a nauseous feeling in your stomach.
INTJ: You constantly wonder to yourself if the moderately clean kitchen is worth your roommate’s “quirks”. They haven’t really done anything, but you’re afraid of them. You’re too afraid to tell them that they are listening to their audiobooks of The Foundation Trilogy too loud, and you’re too afraid to tell them that you don’t like how they’ve replaced all of the regular lightbulbs with red ones. Your sense of reality starts to disintegrate. Is that blood in the fridge? Are those dildos? Their is a stack of papers on the coffee table which, as far as you know, are comprised entirely with the digits of pi.
ESFJ: You still can’t get over the fact that your roommate has a sex schedule. And more importantly, no concept of respectful noise levels while they do it.
INFJ: You finally found that roommate that will just share quiet, peaceful company with you. You play Okami, and they work on their novel. You write your essays, and they put on Star Wars. No words, just good vibes. However, things have started to get weird since their SO broke up with them. They adopted a dog without your permission, and they’re taking it back to the shelter tomorrow because a two bedroom apartment isn’t big enough for a greyhound. They keep asking you to cuddle them, and you are running out of polite ways to say “fuck off”.
An episode where Pearl meets someone who acts like her could be interesting. Like they use their frail appearance and sad back story to get what they want from people or to stop people from critisizing them. Someone who won’t get over that one crush who moved on.
And at the end Pearl is getting sick of listening to them and either Steven or Amethyst goes ‘But pearl, don’t you do the same thing?’
And Pearl just has a big moment of self realization of what’s she’s done over the years. Her obsession with Rose and behavior against Greg.
It could end with the gems chasing the person away because now everyone’s just annoyed at them, and Pearl just kinda… thinks in the house and doesn’t do anything for a few days/episode because she’s still thinking.
And she starts being more observant when she starts doing her pity stuff and feels angry over Rose, she becomes more hesitant and really starts to think things over.
You know, character stuff that takes a long time to do.
Let me start off by saying that I got inspiration for this post from another post about the disillusionment of a black woman about dating within the black community, expressing that too many black men aren’t attracted to black women and ideally go for non black women. Which got me thinking that with all this recent promotion of black couples via social media, I feel like we can’t just focus on the pros of black love, but we must also bring to light the darker, behind the scenes reality for black women finding love among black men who directly and indirectly express their refusal to be with black women.
I get it, the praise for black love has to do with unifying the black community by saying, “See, black men and women DO love each other.” And yes, I believe it. I don’t believe the photos I see of black couples on social media are fake or anything, but can we also bring to light female black singles and how their singleness is affected by the presence of misogyny noir and anti blackness among black men? Dating in general is hard, but imagine how dating is as not only a black person, but a black woman who does not fit Eurocentric beauty standards (such as light skin, light eyes, loose hair, slim facial features, etc.) Often times I commonly see these types of “conventionally” attractive black women paired up with black men more so than mono-racial looking black women - I wonder why?
As a mono-racial, dark skinned black woman who grew up in predominantly white spaces, from my own experiences on and offline, I can confidently say that a lot of black men don’t consider me to necessarily be their “ideal” type based off black and white standards of beauty, and I feel like black and white standards of beauty go hand in hand for obvious reasons having to do with cultural assimilation, a history of colonization, and so on. Which brings me right to another point I’d like to make about looks equating to superiority or inferiority. Sure, you can’t judge a book by the cover yet too often black men do so, falling prone to the stereotypes associated with non black ethnicities of women - so it’s not just about non black women meeting a Eurocentric standard of beauty easier than most black women. It’s also about how black men view them as less “controlling” than black women, therefore more agreeable and “nicer” JUST due to ethnicity and ethnicity alone. Mind you, I’m not saying black men who date outside their ethnicity all have agendas behind their attractions, BUT I am still iffy about their reasonings for “racial preferences.” I think now is a good time to quote myself from the post about the disillusioned black woman:
“And whenever I see a black woman who exclusively dates outside the black community I feel like it’s not for the same reasons black men often do it - for black women who either often or only date non black men I feel like I have more understanding for them because of the treatment they receive from black men who often have no issue with voicing how undesirable black women are to them. That gives black women more authority of their love lives by expanding their dating pool (since the lot of black women go for black mates) vs. black men who often go for non black women for superficial, anti black reasons rooted in sexism. So when a black woman says “I don’t date black dudes” I don’t see it as excusable but at the same time I understand her reasons for doing so more than a black man refusing to date black women. I feel like black women are often looking for genuine love, the kind of love too many black men can’t give them because of their racial baggage, while said black men are oftentimes looking for trophies to use to spite black women and make non black men “envy” them for “stealing” their women.”
You read it right. I do feel like a lot of black men aren’t capable of loving black women the way they need to be loved, which has to do with seeing their blackness in the same way that they see their own and not letting gender be the deciding factor concerning superiority vs. inferiority, especially if said black women don’t fit the Eurocentric standard of beauty. I will say that non black men aren’t the “golden ticket” of black women in order for them to find love - there’s undeniably issues of anti blackness and sexism in all communities. But at the same time since non black men aren’t hit the hardest by racism, since anti blackness is global, they do have less baggage from that and less pressure to socially conform in my eyes. Because really, I believe more non black men are attracted to black women more so than they let on, it’s just that their cultural ties such as pleasing family and community hold them back from acting on this attraction confidently.
We really do need to have a real conversation about misogyny noir alongside “black love.” Because part of the way black men are going to love black women unconditionally has to do with an awareness of their own social conditioning and their own perceptions of black womanhood.
A Dutch artist created the amazing images in a bid to see if different triggers -such as eating a chilli or chopping onions- created different looking tears. ‘I decided to start an evening of experimenting with my close friends,’ wrote Maurice Mikkers, the photographer. 'I asked them to cut onions, eat hot peppers, look in to a fan or cry because of sadness or happiness. To see if there was a resemblance or difference in the structure of forming tears, I took images of every tear drop under the microscope.’ Scientifically tears are divided into three different types based on their origin. Tears contain oils, antibodies and enzymes and fall into three categories: basal, which are released continuously to keep the eyes lubricated ; reflex, which occur in response to irritants such as when chopping onions or when getting poked in the eye ; and psychic, triggered by emotions. Scientists have identified that different types of tears are made up of distinct molecules. For example those caused by emotions contain hormones which act as a painkiller and are released when we are stressed. 'We are all familiar with these ways of crying, but how do they look microscopically? Is there any difference? Science says that every tear has a different viscosity and composition,’ said Mikkers. 'Nevertheless they are beautiful to look at.’
This is based off a rather intensive analyzing of their personalities as well as astrology and things they themselves have mentioned.
Jin: Jin needs someone really understanding and nurturing, someone who will pick up small things like when he’s nervous being around many people and then silently reach out for his hand. Someone who is optimistic and confident in their personality and their own brightness- someone whose positivity is just as infectious as his own. Definitely someone who’s honest and a good listener- someone who makes him feel comfortable and safe and appreciated. Friendly and naturally nice- someone who finds it difficult to be mean to anyone.
Yoongi: Not someone who’s necessarily shy, but someone who’s introverted with good composure and an admirable outlook on their and other people’s feelings and situations- someone who encourages him to think about everyone’s side of the story. Someone’s who’s wise. A person who is bold and captivating- enthralling people with their passion and unique character and opinions. Helpful and friendly. Someone who is patient and understanding with him and admires his passions- wanting to hear all about it. Someone with a sense of bluntness who states things simply without sugar coating them. Loves music.
Hoseok: A person with a sense of logic and who can be realistic. Someone with a huge heart and an endless capacity for love, like they don’t just ‘like that plant’ they ‘fricking adore that plant’, they don’t just ‘care for their friends’ they ‘would do anything for their friends’. Very clever, bossy but not in a suffocating way. Someone he can trust 100% and can confide everything in. Reliable- he can always count on them. Just naturally cute, has cute quirks they don’t even notice but he’ll adore. Very unique and odd and entertaining without even trying. Kind of awkward. Plays with his hair.
Namjoon: Incredibly strong- a heart able to endure a lot, and who purposefully will go through that for the benefit of people around them. Intense, beautiful eyes and a captivating voice- their passion has him wanting to listen to them talk all night and he’ll love the way their whole face lights up. Might be very tough or have a hard shell but actually has the warmest most caring and tender heart. May not be overly affectionate with everyone or may not show what they feel very easily, but shows him love and affection. A person who is oriented towards their future family. Great listener and very supportive. Like a rock in his life who also exudes tenderness. Captures people’s attention.
Jimin: Someone who’s open, warm, tender and embracing with him but a little shy and awkward around other people. He feels like they lean on him and he supports them. Someone who’s cute, blushes easily and a little clumsy. Awesome, witty sense of humour. Secretly looks out for everyone. Maybe a little stubborn but has a soft heart. Holds his hand for support. Would snuggle him all day and always makes him tea. Talks him to sleep. Just extremely gentle and tender. Sees clothes they think he’ll look good in and buys it for him but is too shy to straight out give it to him so will nonchalantly leave it somewhere for him to find.
Taehyung: Mature, developed opinions, deep thoughts, alternative tastes, loves art and things like photography and music and poetry. Open-minded and ready to learn about the world- constantly researching things. Has lots of quirky friends because they’re just naturally accepting and laid-back. Listens well but can also talk your ear off- can get very excited when talking about things they care about. Knows when to be serious and think reasonably. Very happy, chilled and positive vibes. Strong and shares their strength with everyone. Literally everyone. Tries really hard. Friend and family orientated but just very humanitarian in general. Very clever. Can be crazy and weird. Absolutely mesmerizingly strange laugh.
Jungkook: Someone who thinks the world of him- someone who could just listen to him and watch him all day. Appreciates and picks up small things and compliments him on it. Boosts his confidence. A naturally mothering, comforting and warm hearted person. Grabs his hand in excitement. Funny. Playful and cheerful, gets really hyped and hypes up people around them. Can be really shy. Someone really snuggly and soft. Massages him. Shows genuine interests in his interests. Play computer games with him and listens to all his music. Reads to him.
the mbti types based off of people I know / an enfp pov
INFP: my legit best friend- a great listener, has a really great music taste and is super hilarious. not as emotional™ as everyone thinks, but feels very deeply. obsessed with knowing how life will turn out and gets frustrated because she’ll never know. “Is there a god? do you wanna talk about space? here listen to this song it makes me think about the future.” does not want people to see her but wants to know people think about her enough to include her (even if she doesn’t show up)
INTP: dad friend- will try to help but doesn’t really know exactly how to comfort. really smart but very anti social. prefers to sit at home and read instead of talking but thinks I’m funny so that’s okay. takes a while to actually get them to talk but once they trust you they’re really cool friends to have and they make a lot of lame jokes that are actually pretty good. if they don’t talk to you, don’t take it personally, they don’t really talk to anyone
INTJ: is actually hilarious but no one understands his humor. extremely sarcastic. if you say something stupid will probably either a: death glare or b: respond with something along the lines of “can you please rephrase that or explain it in a way that I can fully understand and give you an accurate response?” seems like they don’t care and they kinda don’t but if they like you then they care a lottttt even if they don’t really know how to show it. doesn’t really speak at all unless they know exactly what they’re talking about and tend to feel very frustrated if you ask them something and they don’t know how to respond. don’t really talk to people in worry that someone will see them as not as smart as we actually think they are.
ISFJ: cinnamon roll of a friend and mom friend to the extreme. seems like all we do is bake cupcakes and watch movies together but i love you and enjoy you’re company a lot. doesn’t really like confrontation at all. wants to be supported as much as she supports everyone else. doesn’t talk much but if she’s comfortable with you, oh boy. is really smart and wants things to be in order and if her motives are questioned or someone says something that offends her she will be very frustrated and upset for a while. tends to bottle her feelings until she can’t anymore and then has a break down and feels extremely unworthy of anything. loves to read gay fanfiction. tries her best to respect everyone and will do whatever she can to help you if you need it. extremely loyal partner and friend
INFJ: really awkward but in a good way. great listener. doesn’t really know how to say what’s on her mind ever so lets out her feelings in art. both infjs that I know are extremely artistic and charming. they just have this really home-ish feeling that makes you want to tell them anything and they’re also super trust worthy. never judges people and gives great hugs. very insecure and acts like nothing gets to them but you can read their faces like a book. please protect them.
ISTP & ISTJ & ISFP have yet to be discovered - chances are I probably know at least one of each of these types as I am friends with a lot of people but I haven’t been able to type any of my friends as such for now. please feel free to message me if you’re any of these types because I would love to be friends and know more about you (:
ENTP: jesus christ. one hell of a person. we can talk for hours and hours and it feels like we’ve only been talking for like two minutes. you make me laugh a lottttt. emo to the extremo. has no filter and says offensive things sometimes but not to be hurtful or anything they’re just very blunt and expect you to already know what they’re talking about. questions things a lot and always wants to know why something is happening for the exact reason and if you can’t explain then it isn’t worth their time. is actually pretty emotional insecure deep down but at the same time is very self absorbed and has a strong tendency to think they’re better than everyone else. all of the entps I know are amazing multitaskers
ENFJ: very loud and obnoxious. the epitome of extra. talks about herself a lot and intentionally embarrasses herself for attention. not a bad person at all but just frustrates me quite a bit because I feel like she could be such an amazing person that people really enjoy talking to and being around if she just listened to what other people have to say for once.
ENFP: the only enfp I know is myself so i guess I’ll just write about me lmao. I’m very friendly and I love to talk a lot and be in groups but at the same time I really like to just hang out with people one on one. I’ve been told before that the way I act in a group is very different than how I act with just one person. for example in a group im always laughing and making jokes and talking to everyone and I tend to say stupid things but with just one person I’m quieter and I like having very deep and complex conversations about everything. (that doesn’t mean the jokes stop haha) I have been told by a lot of my friends that I have a very child like personality and I agree. I’m a pretty emotional person and I care about other people a lottttt. I would do anything to help one of my friends and I love making people smile. I like to express myself in creative ways (I wear glitter on my face to school and I have a bright yellow jacket that I wear often that says savages on the sleeves and huge grandpa glasses) because I just really want to stand out for some reason. I tend to start a lot of tasks that I never finish and I usually start off things very excited about them and ignoring all of the bad things but once I realize what I’m doing and if feel like it won’t benefit me at all in the future or help me be the best version of myself then I tend to drop it but if I see it benefiting me or making me a better person or helping me with what I need then I am extremely devoted to it and will do anything I can to keep it going. this goes for things all the way from a new activity at school to relationships which I guess can make me seem kinda flaky but I don’t want to put myself in a situation that is going to leave me unhappy and questioning why I ever started it in the first place. this doesn’t mean I just give up or that I don’t try to work though the bad things in situations because I put myself through a lot to really understand a situation and if I can tell that what I’m doing will never work out for me then that’s when I drop it.
ESFJ: cool affff. seems unphased by a lot but always knows what’s going on. is a great leader and knows wtf they’re talking about. always trying to find an answer to anything they do. also pretty extra but not as much as ENFJ. involved in everythingggg and will roast u with no remorse. never leaves the house without making themselves look presentable first. sarcastic laugh™
ESTP & ESTJ & ESFP & ENTJ have yet to be discovered - chances are I probably know at least one of each of these types as I am friends with a lot of people but I haven’t been able to type any of my friends as such for now. please feel free to message me if you’re any of these types because I would love to be friends and know more about you (:
*disclaimer* I’m not a psychologist and im not trying to shove each personality type into a box. these are just based off of the people I know personally and if you don’t fit with my description of your personality type i apologize. everyone is different and there are so many variations of each type.
SUMMARY: You and Jensen are best friends, you accompany him to Nashville for the convention and drunken hijinks ensue!
Pairing: Jensen Ackles x (bestfriend!)reader
Word Count: 1810
Warnings: Some swearing
A/N: So i have been struggling with writing and what not, and the other day this idea hits me. I am basing it off the information that I saw about NashCon and it just grew to this fic. This would be my first attempt at writing a possible more than friends type fic based on the actual actor. I mean no disrespect to Danneel, we will just consider her happy with someone else for the purpose of this fic. Also a huge shout out to Daddy B aka @bigdaddymongoose, she is my rock and helps me out sooo much with writing!
“C’mon you two, let’s hit another bar!” Jared laughed, drunk off his ass already.
You giggled, watching your best friend trying to walk unaided. His bow legs making the staggering all the more comical. Finally, he made it to your side, he threw an arm around you, almost knocking the two of you to the ground.
“I think Jay here has had enough,” you snickered.
After the tour of the Jack Daniels Distillery and all the free shots, then the dart throwing game with Jason and the guys and more shots imbibed. Next, Creation Ent wanting to celebrate Jay’s birthday during the Saturday Night Special concert with you guessed it more alcohol involved. Let’s just say when Jay sang Tennessee Whiskey, he was almost three sheets to the wind then. If Jared got his way, this would be the third bar you all hit.
Jensen started shaking his head, “No, I-I think we need more bars,” he grinned. “Me likey, more acl-aco-alc-,” he furrowed his eyebrows like he was concentrating, “drinks.”
You laughed, “I think everybody is done for the night. You two have a panel in the morning, remember?” You smacked Jensen’s hand away from your face as he tried to “boop” your nose. “Stop that!”
Jared just gave you “Sam’s puppy eyes”, “Nope, Pada-gigantor, those will not work on me. I am impervious to “Mr. Awesome,” you jerked a thumb at Jensen, “you don’t stand a chance my tall friend.”
