Fly a little higher…
Strong points: Outwardly calm, good actor/can hide feelings well, skilled at light-hearted teasing amongst peers, can be friendly/kind but doesn't look like it at first glance, intelligent, logical, inquisitive, good listener yet can be opinionated when need be, witty, very analytical, has a good balance of selflessness and self-centeredness, honest, surprisingly can be very expressive/animated when in the right mood, pretty good self-control, extremely loyal and protective of those close to me.
Weak points: Inwardly emotional/mood-swingish, varying self-esteem, jumps to conclusions, pessimistic and finds faults in others easily, worries a lot, somewhat quiet yet can be very talkative when the subject is right, extremely blunt, takes a long time to get to know me and earn my trust, sometimes awkward in personal/emotional situations and with people I don't know, distant, has been called "mean" multiple times, caring yet doesn't always show it, finds it hard to be enthusiastic, can be the dorkiest person, sometimes jokes around/teases at the wrong time, can be odd/a bit strange/silly if you catch me in the right mood, prideful, forgetful on things that I don't really care about, gets stuck in my mind a lot, sometimes oblivious to other sarcastic remarks besides my own.
Favorite colors?: Blue and black.
What were/are your three favorite subjects in school?: Theatre, geology, orchestra.
What era or recent decade would you fancy yourself living in?: Honestly, I can't think of myself living without internet, so either at this current time pariod or beyond. I'd love to go back in time to explore other decades from the past, but I would never want to live there. A lot of the things we have now (sanitary water, toilets vs outhouses, easy access to food, certain medicines, etc) wouldn't be accessible if you go back far enough.
How would most people describe you?: I always wonder if people think of me as boring. Of course they never say I am as it would be rude to say that to someone's face, so I just keep on wondering...
Strangely enough, I've been told I'm timid by some and aggressive by others. I'd say I'm more in the middle, though...I try to avoid conflicts, but when someone challenges me, I'll hold my beliefs.
People tend to view me as extremely quiet and somewhat shy when they first see me and think I'm a loner, but in the end if they get to know me long enough I open up and I'm shown to be more "reserved" with witty and fun moments, and I can even be talkative on occasion if something comes up that truly interests me. I'm extremely attached to my hobbies and interests and get obsessed easily.
People are impressed with my genuineness. They like that I can say the blunt and honest truth, no matter how much it may frighten them sometimes (I've been told it's scared people, funnily enough). Similar to this, I've been called "mean" before (in a light-hearted manner), probably because I tend to say what's on my mind.
I've also been told I'm funny as all hell. Who knew?
My mom says, "You're inquisitive, witty, fun, logical, funny, and a bit obsessive."
Would you describe yourself the same way? Why or why not?: I think I've already explained that above. So mostly yes, but sometimes no, because different people know different sides of me.
If you could have dinner with anyone of your choosing, dead or alive, who would it be?: Leonard Nimoy, because I'm a big fan of Spock from the 60s. I'd want to ask him many questions.
What is your favorite quote, and why?: I like witty quotes that make me chuckle with dark, dry humor and such. But I have a lot that I enjoy, so I'll list some here:
"Sometimes I need what only you can provide: your absence."
- Ashleigh Brilliant
"I didn't attend the funeral, but I sent a nice letter saying I approved of it."
- Mark Twain
"I'm not crazy, my reality is just different than yours."
"Reading this gives me brief control of your mind."
Would you honestly risk your own life to save a complete stranger?: A complete stranger? Probably not. I'd be more willing to risk my life for someone I'm close to.
When confronted with your doppelganger from another universe, how do you convince those around you that you are the original?: Well, if this other me is from another universe, it's possible that they don't have the same talents I do. I'd prove I'm the real one by beating the doppelganger in a video game, or playing the violin well, or by drawing a picture of a random character. Or perhaps, if that doesn't work, to have me recall an event I've had in the past, such as a convention I went to. Because, with any luck, as the doppelganger is from an alternate universe, there is bound to be some kind of difference between me and it.
When spending the evening with your significant other, is your communicator on, or off?: Assuming that "communicator" is an analogy to "cell phone", on silent so I can still receive voicemail, yet there are no interruptions.
Someone is threatening to harm your best friend with a weapon. How do you diffuse (or escalate) the situation?: Not going to lie, I'd be afraid, but I'd stand up for my friend. I'd try to be as calm as possible, yet try to talk it through and find out why the guy was trying to hurt my friend, and I may get frustrated at times...but this is my best friend's life we're talking about, here. I wouldn't just leave them.
The current away team has been taken hostage and their communicators are not working. What do you do to try to rescue them?: I would organize a way to sneak onto the planet they're on to rescue them, as long as we were armed with weapons. But before leaving, I'd make sure that a certain coordinate would be memorized by the person who beams us down, and he would every hour lock on to that area and try to beam us up. That way, we could get back up to the ship without the communicators, as long as the coordinates were at a place where we could easily get away (behind a few rocks or something out of sight). Although, thinking about it a little more, I'd wonder if since the communicators are not working, if the phasers would not be functioning as well. I may have every person coming along bring another type of weapon as well that does not use technology.
Star Trek IX.
Which character do you relate to the most, and why?: I know which character I can relate to the most in the 60s show, but honestly, the characters are a bit different in the movie. I'm not sure.
What color is your regulation uniform/which Starfleet department do you work for?: I would never wear red. Any Trek fan knows red is a death sentence. So anything but red.
The bridge is empty and the captain's chair is unoccupied. To sit, or not to sit? If yes, do you spin around?: You know, it would most certainly be tempting. I do have a lot of self-control, but I may sit just for a little bit and I'd certainly spin around...but then I'd quickly get back off. But I'd only do this if I knew for sure no one would come in.
The Enterprise has been contaminated by an airborne aphrodisiac. Who do you end up shagging?: Probably no one. I just...don't understand love. I'm not a very romantic person. I doubt even an aphrodisiac could affect me. ._.;; (I'd prefer to watch the other people who get affected and see their reactions from the sidelines, anyway, ha.)
Anything Else?: I'm an ISTP-ISTJ hybrid according to Myers-Briggs.
