DeviantArtist Questionnaire

Sat Aug 8, 2015, 4:52 PM




  1. How long have you been on DeviantArt?
    Since September 18, 2005, so almost 10 years!!! HAHAHA! I'm ooooollld~!

  2. What does your username mean?
    My other nickname, Prax, is a shortened form of Praxidice, a Greek goddess of exacting justice/retribution. I was at my weeb phase back then, so I found out Meibatsu in Japanese meant retribution/divine punishment. So whenever Prax as a username is taken, I default to Meibatsu. (If both are taken, then I use Meibatsu-Prax. lol)

  3. Describe yourself in three words.
    Flaky Artist Syndrome (also "Nami's Worst Enemy" and "Very Mean Person" and "Searching for Enemies" according to OutOfTheOrange !)

  4. Are you left or right handed?
    Right-handed!

  5. What was your first deviation?
    Good stuff! (My ballpoint pen work looks cool no matter what age I am!!!)
    Prax and GLS by Meibatsu
    and a poem!
    Reach OutI'm sorry I made you learn to walk
           when all you knew was how to crawl
    I'm sorry I tried to force you up
           I'm sorry I tried at all
    I didn't know you wanted to waste away
    How does it feel
           Is it warm down there in the earth?
           Does it feel as good as much as it hurts?
           Do you like being surrounded with all of this dirt?
    Why don't you reach out for the sun
    Beloved of mine, you are not fallen
           You were never up to begin with at all
    You're still curled up in your gestation
           Still learning to cry, still learning to bawl
    I didn't know you found it comforting to stay
    I didn't know your whole world was made of clay
    How does it feel
           Still waiting to burst out of your shell

  6. What is your favourite type of art to create?
    OC art. Mostly garbage art and scraps and sketches. lol

  7. If you could instantly master a different art style, what would it be?
    Conceptual art (all the environment and background stuff!)

  8. What was your first favourite?
    I think...
    <da:thumb id="58538595"/>

  9. What type of art do you tend to favourite the most?
    Art of my OCs. LOL
    Also good and comprehensive references/tutorials.
    I also fave things to encourage people sometimes!

  10. Who is your all-time favourite deviant artist?
    Uhhhhh.. I guess my standard answer for "celebs" that I don't auto-delete new deviations from are:
    :icontracyjb: :iconphobs: :iconloish:
    I am not too invested in anyone on DA right now except for my friends so.. Maybe all my faves are my friends now! ;D
    You will generally know if you are my fave person or not by how much I will willingly interact with you!

  11. If you could meet anyone on DeviantArt in person, who would it be?
    No one. I want to keep my mystery alive!!! Also did I mention social anxiety??? Hahah!
    (I don't want to end up being so awkward and annoying they return to the interwebs disliking me. LOL)

  12. How has a fellow deviant impacted your life?
    A bunch of people have become sources of inspiration and willing spirits to bounce ideas off of! I have also opened myself up more as a person because some people were just too cool to not try to get over my social anxiety (and general antisocial attitudes) to interact with them!

    Though right now I will make shoutouts to merit for getting me to sign up in the first place and being there to inspire me from the beginning, MyDearBasil for being fool enough to launch comics using my OCs so that I may piggyback off of her talent and hard work lol, Atey for being a constant reminder of the preciousness of OCs and also her hard work with hacking and sticking them into Fire Emblem things! <3, and OutOfTheOrange for probably being one of my first (?) successful attempts at social connection through DA and now we probably skype too much but oh well. >_>

  13. What are your preferred tools to create art?
    Ballpoint pen and white copy/printer printer paper.
    Though these days the bulk of my art is using an 6x8 Wacom Intuos 3 and Paint Tool SAI.
    I will also use Photoshop CS6 for text and complex adjustments on occasion, and JASC Paint Shop Pro 7 for scanning and quick cropping/editing.

  14. What is the most inspirational place for you to create art?
    Anywhere I'm comfortable and have my sketchbook or computer and ideas. Usually it will be my office/computer room (though it used to be my bedroom because my computer and art supplies used to be located there too lol).
    I also like drawing while on the bus and subway, especially while listening to music so I can easily ignore people!

  15. What is your favourite DeviantArt memory?
    Making SGPA out of revengeance and reaping the sweet sweet rewards of not only vindication but also meeting and making really cool friends (and witnessing drama unfold..).
    HAHAHAHA! My name suits me well, don't you think!

Here is what I made:

Livestreaming something lol

Sun Feb 16, 2014, 9:22 PM






www.livestream.com/meibatsu



Maybe done at 4am. -- Okay, I was done at 6am. lol Only took 6 hours of me starving..

Result:


Original Skin "Birds and Berries" by fantasy-alive (Modified by Meibatsu)




okay guys i am lacking sleep but i have the artistic urge in me

it's a remembrance veteran's day miracleeee--and pocky forever alone day alternatively--what are the odds
btw requests are now CLOSED!!!



even though i got stuff i should be drawing or doing (SO MANY THINGS I SHOULD BE DOINGG IN FACT), i need some procrastination to accomplish it lol

therefore

i want to make some erotic art (potentially nsfw) because it's good anatomy practice so grab this opportunity while it's available because i haven't done requests in forever

rules:
- gimme one of your OCs with a reference image

- pick from among my many OCs (you can see some of them here: meibatsu.deviantart.com/galler… but MOST of my gallery is OC stuff anyway)

(yeah yeah, i am not into looking up references for official properties like anime, game, or cartoon characters)

- gimme an idea of what kind of spicy sexiness is gonna happen (i am not gonna draw like a full penis or vagina, people, but i am pretty flexible with whatever)

i don't mind if it's totally out of character or not the usual sexual orientation for the character

***however if you for some reason pick me (solarcat/prax/meibatsu) or dysta as a character.. like... it will have to be not fully erotic because weirrddddd... (because one is me, and the other is a perpetual 15-year-old spirit thing that i made to never exploit in that way -- that's what altaire was for lolol) it's gonna turn into a kissy romantic pic in some way instead lol

some kind of sketch or something dumb will be spat out at some point this week as i procrastinate a lot on things

8 slots first come first serve so get your refs and links and ideas ready

1) stupid dead nameless fav.me/d1r7bct and super hot katy fav.me/d6105ef fav.me/d681rp8 riding him rough and wild ok => DONE! fav.me/d6uyr2k
2) what do you mean you don't want alt fav.me/d45od87 and nyx fav.me/d4pz3v6 having wild sex but to make sweet sweet love => DONE! fav.me/d6wcawn
3) orleien fav.me/d5bm199 you are gonna be ravaged by vetis fav.me/d5vq0hm sta.sh/01upfm644ecj and he has a tail so maybe this will get interesting => DONE! fav.me/d757wjv
4) johnny keith fav.me/d3jgo3m the so experienced i'm sure being taught a lesson in the art of pleasure-making by magic girl dorothy fav.me/d6bfcr8 => DONE! fav.me/d758qcc
5) hana fav.me/d5xgi0s how did you let a jerk like heimdl fav.me/d2ift1a seduce you this far i mean he's not even a girl woah => DONE! fav.me/d759mp8
6) candy fav.me/d5vbzc3 , i don't think barlow fav.me/d6ln2su knows how far you are willing to go to get what you want => DONE! fav.me/d75crl7
7) elly fav.me/d6oisjf baby we all know all-female military prolly got a lot of homoerotic things going on don't tell me you didn't experiment with hot girls like quetzal fav.me/d5bdq1m => DONE! fav.me/d75dqqs

URGH I NEED TO FOCUS SOME MORE AGAIN!

I have just been very busy with wedding stuff. My wedding day is on June 22nd  this year, so I might not get too many things done between now and then even though I really want to!
Bills are already piling up, and all I do is work part-time, yet it still seems like I have no time for anything else. >_>
Well, hopefully I'll be able to get at least a few things done this month. I have a bit of a breather now that I completed most of the BUYING of things, but most of the final planning will be done in May, so there's some time to art around now. XD Yaaay~~! FINALLY!
However, since I will be catching up on art ad stuff, I can't take any requests or commissions or invest in too much time in new side things. Hope you all understand!

Also, a bit of a public service announcement since I feel it's been coming up a lot lately: if you are suffering from depression or have other mental health issues, please take care of yourself and seek help and treat yourself well and fairly. You're not alone. There's always going to be someone who's rooting for you, who's fighting for you, and who is willing to listen.

merit AND I HAVE A TABLE AT THE FAN EXPO IN TORONTO IN AUGUST!

AUGUST 23 - 26, 2012 @ Metro Toronto Convention Centre
Artist Alley @ A104

Come check us out and relieve us of our loneliness and exacerbate our social anxiety! XD
This also means that during August, we will be very busy trying to create fancy pants artwork for the convention, although we will also be focused on doing very inexpensive on-the-spot commissions there as well. :> That was lots of fun last time and I am excited to flex my "fast art" skills again!
So... come give us money. >_>

Original Skin by fantasy-alive (Modified by Meibatsu)




Hey again, everyone!

I think most of you know by now that I absolutely love creating characters, and most importantly, I love the characters that I make!
I figure it would be cool to make a list of what I think makes a compelling character!
Not only that, but I'd like to hear your thoughts on what you think of my characters, and also how character YOUR creation process goes as well!
Below, I speak from MY OWN POINT OF VIEW, of course. Feel free to disagree, but be warned, if you try to start a debate with me, it most likely will go on for a very, very long time.
And you probably will not win! HA!

:star: WHAT I LIKE TO DO - A MEIBATSU CHARACTER CREATION HOW TO:
1. Think of what character I want to make (OC, fandom OC, etc.)
2. Think of the kind of personality I want them to have
3. Think of what skills I want them to have and how they fit in the universe
4. Think of the advantages of drawbacks of the skill
5. Think of how the personality and the skill mix to make the character unique
6. Design the character with the personality and skills in mind
7. Make the character look unique in some way (clothing, accessory, physical feature, body language, etc.)
8. Doodle the character in various poses, expressions, gestures
9. Make a short comic with the character speaking or doing their thing
10. Have the character interact with another character, play off their dynamics
11. Think of what I want for the character in the future
12. Tweak, adjust, and deepen the character's backstory so it better reflects the direction of the character's present and future
13. Build up relationships between the character and other characters
14. Develop side and background characters to serve the character's backstory
15. Think about how the character develops in the future, their upgrades, their downgrades
16. Make more comics illustrating their backstory, their present, and their future developments
17. Keep using them and developing them! Or else I will abandon them or try to delete them!
18. Redevelop a character as necessary because ideas that seemed good at the time could actually suck later
19. If there is an old abandoned character that can be reused to fill the role of a new character being made, then pick them up, dust them off, and give them life again!

Here is a walkthrough I did in the past when I made Asfir. It doesn't exactly follow the above steps in linear fashion since I kind of think of everything all at once:
Prax's OC Creation Walkthrough by Meibatsu

:star: MORE TIPS AND THOUGHTS ON CHARACTER CREATION -- ESPECIALLY MAIN CHARACTERS

:bulletblue: Make a character that you would actually enjoy reading about or seeing in action

Lots of people like making characters as a way to express themselves, and to experiment with interacting with the world without actually having to do it themselves. Some people think of this as "wish fulfillment" or "self-insertion", but that's not always true. Sometimes I make characters just as an exercise in philosophy (e.g. How would such a person deal with the world? What if...? Could I understand a character that...?). Anyway, the important point is that it should be a character that interests YOU in some way. You should want to see them develop and grow in some way. You should be fascinated with their struggles and successes. You should want to understand why they are acting the way they are, or feeling the way they feel (and even if you don't know, you WANT to know). You should ENJOY them! Have fun with them!

Now, lots of people may rag on about how THEY don't enjoy your character, but rule number one is that YOU enjoy your character because that character is YOURS.
DO NOT LET OTHERS TAKE OVER AND DEVELOP YOUR CHARACTERS FOR YOU IN SPITE OF WHAT YOU REALLY WANT.
I think people that do that are condescending, offensive, and frankly: not worth my time.

:bulletblue: Don't make the character so overpowered that all their conflicts are predictable and boring

You want your character to be cool and awesome in SOME way. That's what makes them interesting to you. However, boredom will quickly settle in if they are SO COOL and SO POWERFUL and SO SUCCESSFUL that it becomes predictable. Then you will wonder, with all their coolness and good things going on, why you think they suddenly suck. And you will build contempt. And you will want them deleted. And that is sad. So, do not try to stack up your character with every cool skill you can think of. Don't try to make them 100% successful or super top class in everything. You won't have many other characters (your OWN characters even) that will want to bother even dealing with them. And in the end, a character that is alone with no characters "in their league" wanting to interact with them is practically an abandoned or deleted character anyway.

:bulletblue: Don't make the character so weak and pathetic that you wish they would just die off already

On the other end of the spectrum, don't get so scared of making an overpowered character that you make a useless one. The same thing happens. They are a failure, and their failure is predictable. And you will get bored. And you will build contempt. And you will want them deleted too. Why were they made if only to be deleted? It's good to try to make a sympathetic character with flaws and weaknesses, but not so much that they become a pile of boring, whining, and pining uselessness. You will start wanting to kill them off in some way in order to "redeem" their uselessness, but in the end, you would hardly care about their death, even if you tried to make your other characters care.

:bulletblue: Make your character look unique so they stand out as your character

Your character needs to look unique in some way. They should not look like every other character. Even if they are a "plain" character, something about them should make them stand out AS a character. That's what character design is half about when it comes to art. There needs to be some sort of thought put into the actual DESIGN. Is the silhouette unique? Are they recognizable in a sea of millions of other characters? Are they fun for YOU to draw? Can you draw a very quick doodle of them and they would still be recognizable to you? This is where the unique bits come in. Maybe it's just a stick doodle, but you can add in an accessory or hair style, and BAM, it's your character! Makes for easy and fast comics, which makes it easy to develop your character! Also important is that you start to be more consistent in how you draw your character so they look like the same person in different pictures, and the same in a comic across different panels. They should also look unique from all your other own characters. You don't want to be confused about which character is who, and certainly your audience doesn't want to be confused about that either!

It is also very true that a  lot of compelling character design requires a certain level of artistic ability. That is.. enough ability to get your idea across.  If you don't even really know what's going on with your character visually, chances are no one else will either, and other people who are not even invested in your character will have less patience to try and figure it out. Creators have come from all skill levels and art styles, and characters have come from all those different levels. Just keep working at your craft and you will get more consistent and clear in communicating your ideas. If you can't get your idea across visually, and must instead list it in extravagant words that even very good artists will have a hard time rendering, it will fall on deaf ears and blind eyes, because no one will be convinced.

:bulletblue: Don't over-design a character too much

Yah yah, there are a lot of great artists out there that can pull this off. If you're one of them, then that's good. But on the whole, characters with too many knick-knacks on them look like they are trying too hard to "be cool". And unless you intend your character to be an eternal "try hard", it's best to not overburden their design with stitch lines, zippers, bells, bows, hearts, lace, armour, gadgets, chains, knives, belts, ropes, etc. You gotta remember that if you intend to actually ever use that character again, you're going to have to DRAW THEM OVER AND OVER AND OVER AGAIN. And make sure you do it CONSISTENTLY. Now imagine trying to do that when your character is over-designed. You will wonder if they are so cool looking, then why don't you ever want to draw them in any meaningful way. It's because they became too complicated with "cool".

It is also my deep belief that well-made character designs are the types that make others want to draw fanart of them. If it's pure frustration for fanartists to figure out and draw, then the design sucks.

As for other over-designed elements of characters: don't try to throw every unique trait and combination you can think of onto them either. It just becomes a terrible list of things to "remember" because none of it will be especially meaningful in the end. Not every detail needs to be designed ahead of time. Little details can get developed as you use your character. Just like you would get bored and annoyed of a stranger you don't really know spouting off irrelevant information about themselves, people would get bored by a character that is nothing but a long list of "stuff". Boring = instantly ignored. Ignored = character abandonment/deletion.

:bulletblue: Make sure the character is compelling and believable

Compelling (interesting and convincing) and believable means that the character fits in the universe that you are putting them in. It could be your own made up world/story or it could be a fandom. What matters is that they interact with that world in a way that it doesn't break that world's canon laws. Otherwise, eyes will glaze over and your character may as well not exist because people will ignore them. And eventually, you will ignore your character too because you will have a hard time developing a character who doesn't interact with the universe in a compelling way. Does the character's motivations make sense in that world? Does that background story make sense in that universe? Do they obey most of that universe's rules and are not popping in and out of every location and being a part of every event, etc?

:bulletblue: Make a character that other characters and the audience would actually want to interact with

It is my belief that a true test of compelling character design is that other characters and the audience (which includes yourself, and your viewers, who could soon be your fans!) will want to interact with the character! They will want to get to know your character. Your character would be considered fun or endearing, and makes a lasting impression on others. Other characters and audience members will want to ask questions, become friends, become rivals, become enemies, or even love interests. Some people will want to make fanart! Some people will want to role-play with your character!

If no one wants to interact with your character much, it's probably because they don't find them very compelling or interesting, or they find the character obnoxious and want to ignore their existence. Both are bad. You can help solve some of this by developing them more through comics so that people can see the character interacting with other characters. This helps people get an idea of your character more and see if they want to interact too. If your character is not compelling or entertaining, then chances are you will have a ridiculously hard time figuring out how other characters should interact with yours. Especially if your character is being inserted into a fandom, you will have a hard time making canon characters stay in character while trying to interact with a non-compelling character.

:bulletblue: Don't get caught up in over-thinking your character's design if it prevents you from actually ever using them

Don't get so caught up in creating the "perfect character that is not too perfect" that you forget to actually do anything meaningful with your character! You're thinking too much! Why'd you even make them if you're not going to use them for anything??? Don't waste all your time planning out their whole story and every nuance so that by the time you're actually done, you don't feel like you want to do it anymore. Part of the fun and point of designing a character is seeing the character go on a journey and grow as you use them. This means stories, pictures, comics! You don't have to know every twist and turn ahead of time! You are your audience too! You want some of your character to be a mystery even to you, so you can be just as enthralled in their adventure as you'd like for others to be. So if you're stuck on "design", then JUST DRAW SOMETHING.

:bulletblue: On Mary-Sues, Gary-Stus, and other character creation shennanigans

There are lots of definitions on what makes a "Mary-Sue/Gary-Stu", but most people do not like them, and there's a lot of subjectivity involved.
Here's my list of quick and dirty rules for whether a character is one of those bad "Mary-Sue/Gary-Stu" characters:
+ is the character entertaining to you and others?
+ is the character liked by yourself and others?
+ do people want to root for the character?
+ do other characters, other people's characters, and the audience members want to interact with the character?
=> [what it all boils down to: IS YOUR CHARACTER COMPELLING (interesting + convincing)?]

IF YES TO ALL THE ABOVE, THEN CONGRATS. YOUR CHARACTER IS NOT A TERRIBLE MARY-SUE.
According to me, "Mary-Sue/Gary-Stu"ness most strictly refers to main characters that no one really likes or wants to interact with. They may hog the spot-light with all their design (intense, intricate, poor, bad, over-design, etc.), but few want to watch because they aren't entertaining. They feel boring and most people's brains turn off when encountering them.

Of course, some people just like throwing the term around for almost any character they don't like.
Or some people just like labelling everything that's not designed to their tastes as a "Mary-Sue".
Unsurprisingly, my characters have also been called Mary-Sues... and poorly developed to boot!
Of course I was like "WOT? HOW DARE? YOUR ARGUMENTS ARE NOT CONVINCING! AWAY WITH THEE!"
And then I was like "WHATEVER DUDEZ, MY CHARACTERS BE AWESOME FO SHIZZLE! YOU THINK YOU ALL THAT, BUT YOU JUST WHACK!"
And later I was like "WELP, TIME TO MAKE ABOUT 8 MORE CHARACTERS TO ROUND OUT MY CAST!"
SGPA - 4 Koma 002 by Meibatsu
^ This is actually related to Solar Cat and the rest of my cast being labelled as a "Mary-Sue"ish. xD


:star: SO YOU TELL ME WHAT YOU THINK LADIES AND GENTLEMEN!
So really, who knows how many of my own rules and tips I have broken in trying to create my own characters! I only have hundreds of them. There are bound to be a crazy amount of poorly designed main characters running around that should be fixed. However, here are a recent batch of characters! A lot of them were old and underused characters that I decided to dust off and further develop.

Feel free to tell me what you think about them! Have I broken all my own design rules? Are they truly  "Mary-Sues" or "poorly developed"? Do I really not know what I am doing but churning out designs like a madman? XD
I have enabled CRITIQUES on the character profiles so you can critique them for originality or whatever the heck else the critique option gives~~~ I don't think I've ever bothered with that feature before. A waste of a premium subscription ability no longer!
Be as critical as you would like! I would like your honest opinion, since I have been wondering what people do think. My cast is pretty varied and ranges from joke characters to seriously messed up ones. However, as forewarned in Solar Cat's profile, though I may hear you out, I may not follow your "sagely advice" should you wish to give it! I am otherwise pretty reasonable though, and enjoy a good debate!~

Get to know my.. Personality?

Wed Jun 29, 2011, 1:52 AM




I was clicking around DA and found this on DeeRezzed's profile. I thought it was a cool personality test with sliders and all that, plus general true/false checkboxes! For the visualizer in me, that's awesome~!

Try it yourself! => PERSONAL DNA: www.personaldna.com/

And now, you can learn more about me.

====================

:star: MY RESULT: CONSIDERATE EXPERIENCER
You are an Experiencer
- Your inquisitive nature, imagination, and hands-on practicality make you an EXPERIENCER.
- Although you have an active imagination, you also concern yourself with the functional elements of things.
- You are willing to experiment to find things that work the most efficiently.
- Getting stuck in certain habits is boring to you—you'd rather find new experiences.
- Accordingly, experiences are more important to you than objects—you'd rather spend your money and energy on events and adventures than on material things.
(Well, unless those experiences are videogames! Get an item AND an experience! WIN-WIN!)
- You like to contemplate a lot of options before making a decision, and you're willing and able to consider a lot of different angles to problems.
- You're open to suggestions, and often rely on others to assess the merit of those suggestions.
- You have an ability to see the big picture—not just how things are, but how they could be—in a variety of situations.
- Your independent streak allows you to make decisions efficiently and to trust your instincts.
(To the above few lines.. There are a few people that  believe I am overly stubborn or not open to suggestions or criticism, however! I AM a little self-righteous at times--or come off as such, but it's usually because I am not convinced by their arguments and have taken  into consideration other variables, leading to  my staunch disagreement.)

If you want to be different:
Have faith that your imagination and practicality will complement each other, and lead to good decisions on your part.
Take the initiative in seeking things out—don't wait for them to come to you.

You are Considerate
- You trust others, care about them, and are slow to judge them, making you CONSIDERATE.
- You value your close relationships very much, and are more likely to spend time in small, tightly-knit groups of friends than in large crowds.
- You enjoy exploring the world through observation, quietly watching others.
(The above is true. I don't like big goups and I like observing--or.. EAVESDROPPING! HWA!)
- Relating to others so well, and understanding their emotions, leads you to trust people in general, even though you're somewhat shy and reserved at times.
- Your belief that people are generally well-intentioned contributes to your sympathy regarding their problems.
- Although you may not vocalize it often, you have an awareness of how society affects individuals, and you understand complex causes of people's behavior.
- You like to look at all sides of a situation before making a judgment, particularly when that situation involves important things in other people's lives.
(I think some people find me judgemental.. or prejudgemental. Well, I don't totally mean to come across that way! I DO try to consider people's circumstances and ability to control them! Honest! I think you can see that in the characters I try to create, anyway.)
- Your close friends know you as a good listener.

If you want to be different:
Because other people would benefit immensely from your understanding and insight, you should try to be more outgoing in social situations, even when they make you uncomfortable. Others will want to hear what you have to say!
(This is true. I Tend to not voice my opinion, or socialize, unless I'm called to/have an obligation to. Of course, I am actually much more social on DA than real-life~!)

Confidence...............24 (lol.. low confidence! xD Though I'm told I come off as confident!)
Openness.................62 (takes effort to be closed)
Extroversion.............14 (I'm an introvert! YAY!)
Empathy...................48 (deh. I try. Somewhat.)
Trust in others ..........62 (stop betraying my trust, people!)
Agency.....................16 (lol. Je suis lazy and most things = luck)
Masculinity................60 (I am so manly!)
Femininity.................58 (i am kinda womanly!)
Spontaneity..............78 (really?! Though I am wont for zaniness!)
Attention to style.......36 (no style~!)
Authoritarianism........66 (I think this means I trust authority..usually)
Earthy......................16 (more imaginative YAH!)
Aesthetic.....................6 (more fucntional! Function over fashion! --screw high heels!)

===========================

This is kind of the same type of results I would get for other personality tests.
:star: I'm an INTJ in the Myers-Briggs tests www.keirsey.com/4temps/masterm… & en.wikipedia.org/wiki/INTJ

"INTJs apply (often ruthlessly) the criterion "Does it work?" to everything from their own research efforts to the prevailing social norms. This in turn produces an unusual independence of mind, freeing the INTJ from the constraints of authority, convention, or sentiment for its own sake ... INTJs are known as the "Systems Builders" of the types, perhaps in part because they possess the unusual trait combination of imagination and reliability. Whatever system an INTJ happens to be working on is for them the equivalent of a moral cause to an INFJ; both perfectionism and disregard for authority may come into play.

INTJs are analytical. They are most comfortable working alone and tend to be less sociable than other types. Nevertheless, INTJs are prepared to lead if no one else seems up to the task, or if they see a major weakness in the current leadership. They tend to be pragmatic, logical, and creative. They have a low tolerance for spin or rampant emotionalism. They are not generally susceptible to catchphrases and do not recognize authority based on tradition, rank, or title."

(Yes, the above is generally true. And I don't bow to people in positions of authority unless they've proven themselves capable leaders. It makes it hard to uh.. sort out my confidence in following their lead at times. I also tend to avoid positions of leadership unless I feel no one else will or can do it! Organizing and talking to all those people constantly?? GUHHHH)

"INTJs are strong individualists who seek new angles or novel ways of looking at things. They enjoy coming to new understandings. They tend to be insightful and mentally quick; however, this mental quickness may not always be outwardly apparent to others since they keep a great deal to themselves. They are very determined people who trust their vision of the possibilities, regardless of what others think. INTJs are at their best in quietly and firmly developing their ideas, theories, and principles."

(This is where everyone thinks I'm a self-righteous and stubborn person that doesn't listen to others well. Maybe my self-determination is minsinterpreted as narrow-mindedness, although rest assured, other opinions have been taken into consideration. It just doesn't look that way. >_>)

"The most independent of all types, INTJs trust their intuition when choosing friends and mates—even in spite of contradictory evidence or pressure from others. The emotions of an INTJ are hard to read, and neither male nor female INTJs are apt to express emotional reactions. At times, INTJs seem cold, reserved, and unresponsive, while in fact they are almost hypersensitive to signals of rejection from those they care for. In social situations, INTJs may also be unresponsive and may neglect small rituals designed to put others at ease. For example, INTJs may communicate that idle dialogue such as small talk is a waste of time. This may create the impression that the INTJ is in a hurry—an impression that is not always intended. In their interpersonal relationships, INTJs are usually better in a working situation than in a recreational situation."

(Haha, it's true. Social stuff confuses me and I dread small talk! Luckily my intuition is good when it comes to picking out who TO socialize and become friends with.. right? RIGHT???)

======================

PHEW! AND NOW YOU KNOW not to mess with me >_> .

Some people have described my 'character' as contradictory, bu-but it makes sense to ME...
AND WELL.. MAYBE SOME PEOPLE ARE CONTRADICTORY! O___O
