Re: "Survival games personalities play"
Wow, if those characteristics are typical of a stressed Rational, then I think my whole life's been more or less under stress! I do almost all of them all the time; in fact it's my personality, except during times when I'm elated or bubbly, where it seems that my guard is very much lowered (and when I tend to say/do things that I regret later). I've since found out that the times of my extremely elated/high moods are actually periods of mania (I'm bipolar).
- "That's illogical": I do this pretty much all the time, whenever something that someone says is out of line of logic, or, if what they say does not match up to my a priori/posteriori knowledge. I especially am always in conflict with subjective, rather than objective people (mostly XSFX people). I cannot seem to fathom why people like to approach things on a non-logical basis, and instead, attribute their claims to "gut feelings", or, "beliefs". There is so much lack of empirical evidence to base a claim on; how is a proper answer going to be arrived at? It's so... illogical. And it infuriates me, thus I tell them that they ARE illogical; not because I want to be mean, but because they are not doing it right. :|
- "Super-Intellectual": When I'm highly stressed (e.g. in unfamiliar environments like parties with a lot of people I don't know or weddings where my own family members are embarrassing me), I behave extremely robotically and try to eschew myself from the presence of people as much as possible. I even go to the extent of hiding in the toilet so that people do not find me. Needless to say, I NEVER attend social functions such as D&Ds, graduations or weddings, unless I am forced to. When facing someone I do NOT wish to speak to (at such events), I appear very aloof and arrogant even though I do not want to appear arrogant; it's just that I wish everyone would disappear, and the best way to make them disappear (or so my instinct would tell me to do) would be to act cold and distant so that people wouldn't approach me and leave me alone. It's a defence mechanism, I think. But intellectualizing of emotions... I beg to differ. I intellectualize my emotions all the time; I question why I'm acting in such a manner and I predict how else I am going to act, etc.
- "Nitpicking": I think it's because there is more blood flow to my brain, therefore I am more aware of what people say (when my senses are heightened and my body is in defense mode), thus a mix of both makes me very sensitive to their words, thereby increasing the probability of nitpicking on words. I'm a perfectionist by nature, and rather hard to satisfy. Mayhap it gets worse under stress?
- "Superstitious": Err so far... not really. I'm not a 'sensing' person (haha), so I rarely am aware of my physical environment. I'm more focussed on my self and thoughts and hardly interact with the world around me, much less become obsessed with it. I DO notice, though, that I like order and have always been obsessed with it from young. I love libraries, compartments, colour coding, etc. I love categorizing, organizing and doing it. I hate it when my toothpaste tube is squeezed from the middle and I always know if someone has been into my room, messy or not. Weird thing is that I am a pretty messy person, which I attribute to laziness, high distraction and lack of will to enforce my ideals. Which makes me a perfect 'P', or just a very ADD person with Asperger's? haha.
- Blanking Out: Very often. Occurs more frequently when I'm stressed, e.g. during an exam or when people are watching me. I hate it when people are watching me do something; I end up failing. That really sucks.
-- Haunted: Aye, this is more like depression and being obsessed/plagued by incessant negative thoughts, perhaps our brain's reaction to stop the inundation of more realizations that will hurt us, therefore being stuck on one thought would make it easier for the brain to work the knots out slowly. getting fired with too much information at one time would probably shut the whole system down, seeing as to how we use our minds as our primary mode of living.
