I'm pretty sure under the surface, I am a pretty messed up bitch. Honestly I hope that nobody will ever be able to get close enough to me to reach there. I am overbearing and selfish, and once I get attached to someone, they get bored and move on, without knowing that I have begun to rely on them so deeply that it becomes annoying to them. Somebody want to trade lives with me?

Personally I feel I live very different lives based on what the group I'm with, which can cause interesting things to happen when two groups collide. I guess I have a personality or something like that, people say I'm popular, but really I'm just a run-of-the-mill guy who like to make people happy while being happy at the same time.

Other people say I'm the smarts guy they know, or their best friend, but on the inside I'm not sure if they are right. I feel like a lot of life is based on past experiences, and that is what has let me come so far, but I don't know how to continue. Yet few people have been able to help me continue with finding how I am because they think I've already reached that point.

The world we live in I one that I ponder, and really have not clue on how to beat it. Maybe I'm a little above average with academics, or better with people, but I personally feel I just am good at improving, which is confused for a lot of other things in life.

Now I sit here and wonder what tomorrow might bring, and how I may live it in this crazy mixed up world. I realize it's going to take more than just being here, for my life isn't yet complete, nor will it be complete soon. I want to do something in this world, something to help others around me, to give them hope and peace, and to not be forgotten.

As for any introspective quiz or test, I normally don't bother because they often are so non-specific that I get completely different results from everyone of them.

I hope this has given some insight into my introspective, as it may help others realize theirs.

In terms of Myers-Briggs, I'm an INTP, but one with an extreme infatuation with fiction, which means that for me, a sizable portion of the nonstop theoretical analysis that defines INTPs is dedicated to looking at myself: out of all the people in my life, I'm the only one who I understand well enough to reach 'developed character' status in my own head. I simply don't know enough about the lives of other people and the major events therein to appreciate them in that way. Because I'm all I've got, then, and because I receive all the information I could ever want about this one 'character', introspection is a specialty of mine, and I probably spend way more time doing it than I should. Every emotion I feel, every argument I make, and every action I take are all immediately subject to analysis, after which I'll usually analyze the analysis itself, picking out how I might have twisted it to boost or lower my ego or to lead towards other trains of thought (which I pick up when I'm done). My primary mode of living is thinking, thus my primary concern is what I'm thinking about, and as someone who loves to think on the meta level, I almost always end up thinking about myself thinking about whatever I'm thinking about, why I'm doing that, and how it affects me and my personal growth.

I'm basically a megalomaniac, which I think is why I usually come across as confident to those who don't know me, despite not really being confident (as I'm well aware of all my strengths and flaws, and consider my warped perspective fairly unhealthy as far as personalities go - though I'm proud of it anyway, because it makes me an interesting character.) I always assert that it's impossible to know anyone else, or for anyone else to know you, as well as you know yourself. It's one of the few actual solid opinions I allow myself to stick by, because I'm living proof of it. If you step up to the meta and look at yourself as if you were an audience member getting a character's internal monologue, you can see yourself as other people do (minus their emotional reactions, but that's what analyzing them is for.) Just be careful, because it's easy to turn that into an endless introspective loop that just keeps building up layer after layer. I recognize that fiction is my vice, and embrace the fact that what I want out of life is the same experience as I get when I read a book or watch an anime, so I'm comfortable treating myself as separate from myself for the sake of enjoying "me" as a character, but in terms of real-world success, it hasn't gotten me anywhere. I'm squandering my intellect (which, frankly, is pretty impressive, as asinine as that sounds) on things that nobody but me will ever care about - but the very depression that comes from not amounting to anything is something that I can vicariously enjoy, because I look at it as a character I'm attached to going through internal conflict. It's dangerous being able to enjoy your own misery, because you're happy doing nothing about it.

I find Introspection to be one of the hardest things to do
I did a lot in my free time to point where i'm really confused about who I truly am
From the point of view of any of my friends i'd say im sometimes funny, occasionally weird, and I definitely wouldn't strike as confident, but still a person who tries their best to entertain.
The way I see myself though is a pretty confused person, kind of wondering who they are. "Lost" would sum me up pretty well.

Side-note: But the type of person i'd really like to be is a confident, energetic, a little bit eccentric, but definitely amusing type of person. Such a personality takes too much courage, not sure if i've got enough :/

I may look aloof on the outside - I find it ludicrous to express my zealousy for my interests in life - but I have a lot more emotion than that, for I still care for my colleagues and can be pierced by powerful moments in my life. If I don't, then I'm a mere machine.

I'm quite happy with myself. I fit everything I want to be, maybe I could get a bit better at lying, but beyond that, I'm perfectly content.

I love watching Anime, but find it hard to find epic non-airing ones recently.
I like using the PC all day long, but I fall asleep a lot.
I love reading manga, but my eyes get tired fast.
I like having random conversations with people online, but my social skills suck.
I love gaming, but I suck at it.
I like drawing Anime pics, but I suck it.
(many other things I like doing here and a negative results to them).
I hate the outside world, and am proud of it.

My final thoughts about my self: I should just die....but I don't want to, therefore I shall live the crappiest live possible.

Just a person doing they best they can, like anyone else. To put it nicely and simply.

But I'm definitely very complex and contradictory, as I like to believe everyone finds out about themselves.

Face to face, to a stranger, I think I come across as grouchy and awkward. But I let that be their problem. =) Because they are (usually) mistaken, and if they talk to me I think they change their perception into something slightly more positive.

I would probably lie to the psychiatrist.
