My Social Anxiety and the Compulsive Nail Biting

There's anxiety, and then there is social anxiety. Personality-wise, I am just prone to anxiety--it could be related to my Tritype 415. The point is, I have always feared being around other people. Knowing I have to have a conversation with someone, stranger or acquaintance, causes me a stomachache and my hands may even shake. When [...]

Me, Learning Ethics: Cultural Relativism, Subjectivism, and Divine Command Theory

I went back to college for this semester. Ethics happens to be one of my classes. I have had somewhat of an interest in philosophy, over the years. I never bothered to read much, though. Prior to this course, I learned a bit about ancient philosophies. That is it. Anyway, I have decided to blog [...]

Melancholy Phlegmatic Profile

I can thank Tim LaHaye for my interest in the four temperaments. This type of personality assessment is mostly popular among Christians--especially Catholics. Anyway, my personality type is Melancholy-Phlegmatic; melancholia is my dominant feature followed by the phlegmatic traits. More thoroughly, I am really a Melancholy-Phlegmatic-Choleric, but it's more difficult to find more details on [...]

Politically Left or Right-Leaning?

This isn't exactly the most accurate of tests. I am certain that there needs to be more than 20 questions for legitimacy. The results did slightly disturb me. Many INFJ's, and other similar types, tend to be socialist democrats or avoid politics altogether. As a teenager, I had typical INFJ feelings towards religion and politics. [...]

Helen Fisher’s Personality Test

I took another online quiz. Apparently, Helen Fisher is a biological anthropologist and works at the Kinsey Institute. Well, there are 12 combination results (a primary and secondary). I do wonder if she wasn't inspired by Myers-Briggs. My test result was Negotiator/Builder. Your Primary personality Type is Negotiator. NEGOTIATORS are philosophers. These women (and men) [...]

Lonerwolf Enneagram Test

Well, I took another random test as usual. I already know that I am a 4w5 based off other random tests that exist on the Internet. I found the percentages to be interesting. TYPE 4: THE INDIVIDUALIST (OR ROMANTIC) Ego Fixation: Melancholy Holy Idea: Origin Basic Fear: They have no identity or personal significance Motivations: [...]

I am a Melancholic-Phlegmatic

The melancholic-phlegmatic is tidier, more procedural and less flexible than the phlegmatic-melancholic. He may be slower to take on new projects, as the melancholic fear of new situations and tendency to perfectionism takes over. The double-dose of introversion, along with the melancholic tendency to negativity, makes it difficult for him to give compliments and make [...]
