I think it is a personality if one is 1) mostly happy (meaning positive, content); 2) can live with average level of independence for a long time without harming oneself; 3) don’t repeatedly harm people around him/herself. Otherwise it is a disorder – whether it has a name or not. It is not the test which should be used to determine the level of mental health but the whole life experience.

Is there anything I do well?

Extraverted intuition is my “Creative function” as it’s called in Socionics. I knew that from 1993 but still somewhat was blaming myself for being disorganised (reading many books on all sorts of subjects at once) and for being inconsistent with the art I am making. Plus for being superficial because I always seem to be after something new. There is a good podcast episode telling people like me that we ARE OK.

Constant exploration and randomness is the air we breath. Let’s not suffocate ourselves for the sake of somebody else’s standards…

I think it is safe to say I am a Highly Sensitive Person and a High Sensation Seeker (HSP/HSS).

There is an article on possible jobs for Highly Sensitive people and this is what my experience tells me:

Being happy and employed mostly depends on who you work with. I’ve been a scientist for quite a few years and was very content with my job as I had wonderful understanding colleagues. I didn’t like lots of things going on in the big scientific world outside our lab: competition, need to promote your work again and again, disregard for geeks, force of the establishment,.

Now the circumstances have changed and I am a self employed artist. It often feels wonderful but there are problems, too, e.g. no friendly colleagues with similar background and interest around me. Being empathic I can’t really make friends online. So it feels lonely quite often. I still have to promote myself – even more so as there is no wise boss to help me. Being also a HSS I don’t do repetative “consistent” work for which artists are often praised.

What job is best for you depends on circumstances and you ability to adapt to them. I don’t think there is direct link between personality and profession.  Any group of people working on any project would benefit to some degree from being made of people with different ways of thinking and points of view. Ones who can work together without fighting – or other tragedies.

And of course we need all kinds of artists, writers, film makers, etc.

Many won’t like to hear “I know how you MUST feel “. Especially from a relative stranger. Especially on a good day suggesting that you MUST feel horrible. This “mind reading” bothers us because it intrudes on something really private. There is lots of stuff going on in everybody’s head which is not for sharing.

Similarly unpleasant is the situation when a stranger asks where are you from, then says to herself “AHA!” and behaves like she  knows everything about you. Yeah, she might see a couple of news stories about your country, was given a folk art item or tried an ethnic dish but how does this tell her about who you really are inside?

Many really don’t like it when the conversation goes about their personality type feeling pigeon holed. I don’t have any bad feelings yet about this “hole”. Its pretty wide and comfortable. Even better, people talking about personalities are likely to have many common interests with myself so it all depends on how we percieve ourselves.

And on rules we make too.

“The more rules you have about how people have to be, how life has to be for you to be happy, the less happy you’re going to be.” Anthony Robbins

When I was little I wanted to be a sort of a warrior, the tough and cold minded one. But then I discovered another type of hero: the knight with a bleeding heart. I felt in love with my ideal self. Quet, mysterious, thoughtful, insightful, empathic. I gradually came to conclusions that this is what I wanted to grow up into. Still wondering, could I come to another conclusion?
