On the Myers–Briggs test, I usually score around the intj & infp region. That makes sense, so nothing was too surprising on that. But on the big 5 test, I've taken it multiple times, and every single time, I scored high in conscientiousness. Which was very surprising to hear for the first time. 🤔 Because hearing about the habits of people high in conscientiousness is what made me think that I was low in it.

But I'm an odd one when it comes to this & I think I know why. Two things stand out to me the most. It's my high percentage of negative emotion (specifically anxiety) and my high percentage of introversion. If I wasn't high in neuroticism and so low in extraversion, I'd likely be more confident in my abilities and I'd likely have a more go-getter/productivity-driven aim towards the world. But since I don't, it affects my motivations & willpower.

So, in other words, I'm the civilized, competitive, & somewhat creative yet practical shy guy that isn't very people-oriented. I mainly prefer to be alone which limits my options. And my house is always organized even when I'm depressed (can't say the same for my room/office). 😂 I'll probably even have a workout schedule going or be intensely working on some creative endeavor. And even though I don't willingly ask for change, I'm moderately open to new experiences, so it's easier for me to cope with the changes if need be.

I refuse! Also, why are you typing out paragraphs like we're actually interested in what you have to say? Matter of fact, I hope the Rosemary plant that's peacefully resting on your front porch withers and dies!

Also, I don't mean that you have to post your personality type. You can say something surprising you learned about your personality traits. Like for instance, I didn't know I was as competitive as I am. I used to be very agreeable when I was younger, but I guess something changed. I think it was around the time when I was questioning my religious beliefs. I had to get rid of old conceptual structures which caused me to lose trust in things and become more skeptical. So that was surprising for me
