[ADMINS HOUR] Valentine Edition: “What is Your Perfect Date?”

(DISCLAIMER: These are the individual views of our admins, we don’t try to represent it as the general views from each type.)

ISFJ: An ice cream and a cotton candy. I love both of them but I love someone beside me more. We sit under the night sky which decorated by stars and fireworks. So many people around us look happy, but no one is happier than me who have a chance to see him smile, closely. Sometime he smirk, but then he smile. When our eyes meet, everything just stop. A second, two seconds.. Then he wipe off my head and continue to enjoy his vanilla ice cream. I am bashful — as always — and try to cover it but he knows. I love to know what he passionate about, what he wants to do in his life, what his goals, and everything about him. I love to see his side which he never show to someone else. I love to see him differently. My perfect date full of story and small talk. Because I want to know him better and of course, love him much better.

ISTJ: I can’t think of anything romantic, but I guess cuddling and deep conversation attract me more than anything. Well, it’s cheap! They only cost a crampy hand and brain. Uh—sorry for ruining the romanticism.

ENTP: Depends on what my partner needs.

ESFJ: I always like to be in cafes with my significant other. I like to have myself a good cup of coffee and pastry while discuss several topics, joke around, and look into each other’s eyes deeply. To finish it off, I would ask them to walk for several miles with me, while stars watching us. Seriously, walking together is like so fulfilling, I get to learn my significant other so much!

ENTJ: I’ve never really thought of this, but I guess my ideal date would be going to a rock concert together plus a late dinner at my house/apartment, during which I’ll make my partner coffee and we can have a Stranger Things marathon and talk about our future plans, the world, and things we both like and hate until 2 AM. Right, everyone expects some cuddling. I’m not into cuddling but I think I can take it if my significant other likes it. This is awkward. I’ll stop now.

INTJ: My ideal date is playing games together until 3 AM or until we’re too tired to continue. Or cat cafe. Because cats. Either way, it doesn’t have to be expensive or fancy. In fact I’d rather make the date practical that is mutually beneficial to both parties. The point of dates is to get to know each other better and spend time together, right? I would prefer someone I could talk to about the most random of things, from the state of the world or conspire as to why Half Life 3 isn’t being released yet. Preferably with Pizza, because Pizza is life.

ENFP: I dont really have much expectation of how some certain circumstances could fall into “a perfect date” category. I find happiness in simple things in life. I prefer my S.O to have a lot of common interests with me. Places that we like, food that we love to eat, music that we both listen to, activities that we both enjoy, vibes that we find comforting, and so on. So whatever he likes to do, I like to do it, too. As long as my S.O is happy, I’m happy, and that’s what I call a perfect date.

INTP: Let’s explore new places! Talk about something big, new, and exciting! Laugh on some incomprehensible jokes! Be honest about our desire, ambition, and insecurities and make no attempt in trying to impress one another! If we’ve successfully intrigued each other, challenged our perceptions, and charmed each other with a good sense of humour then I’d call it a perfect date.

ISTP: Let’s hike, let’s randomly travel city and try every single food stalls available (the one with the cheapest price), I’m going to take your pictures, a lot so let’s hunting pictures. Or if we are too tired to walk let’s go to nearest book cafe, order a martabak and talk until the cafe already closed. I’m also up to silly playing around nearest Game Zone in the mall playing Time Crisis or Danz Base. Let’s talk about the stars and politics until 11pm or let’s do silliest things at 11 am, either way I will always excites you.

ISFP: Cuddling. All. Day.
Netflix and chill (ok)
Oh cilor will be good. Or indomie kuah (telur)

ENFJ: For me, the way of having a perfect date is to analyze the mood and the situation of both parties beforehand. For example, if we want energy-consuming activity I’ll take my date to a theme park! You know, joke around whilst queuing, enjoy adrenaline-pumping rides, a perfect day. Or if we’re tired and just wanted to chill, a simple movie marathon would suffice. Smelling my dates hair whilst cuddling (this is so fucking addicting btw), stealing kisses, share our thoughts and ideas, making silly jokes, another perfect day.

Actually
, no matter how shitty the place you’re at, or how down you’re feeling atm, when you found the right person, being near him/her will always be a perfect date.

ESTJ: Fine dining and late night driving (with you on my lap) on my expensive car.

INFP: The most important thing is whether we click or not, I won’t want to be in a date where we only sit in awkward silence. Connecting in “”spiritual”” level is so important for me (as silly as that sounds, hence the reason why I have gone to zero date) while the rest can follow, rlly. Although I definitely won’t say no to cuddling under warm blanket when it’s raining outside while drinking warm cocoa as we watch our favorite series or going to conventions (*cough otpcon) where we can be embarrassing together.

INFJ:
A rush?
A glance?
A touch?
A dance?

I’m just looking to share a connection on a date, it’s that simple. And connections can be made anywhere and anytime. Hopefully, there’ll be lots of eye contact and heart-to-heart conversations. It’s the most dangerous thing to bare your soul to someone special. I like to go naked on our dates—figuratively speaking. And perhaps literally, too, if you’d like. But not until the 93,397,373th date.

But hey, spending some quiet time reading together or watching some obscure film at home would do just fine. I’m not the type to ask much for a date to be perfect.

ESFP: a perfect date? as long as my significant other and i are having fun, it is one.
if you want details well ok; going shopping till i max out your credit card, eating food we have never heard before, attending music concerts or music festivals together. if those sound too energy-consuming, we could just stay at home, and have our little private party, you down?

[ADMINS HOUR] “Please Impersonate Your Mind in Cognitive Function-Wise!”

 

(DISCLAIMER: These are the individual views of our admins, we don’t try to represent it as the general views from each type.)

ISTJ
OHOHO my whole brain is a silent library owned and ruled by a sage old man (Si) and his loyal librarian, a bold and perfectionist middle-aged woman with black, short hair (Te) who manages all the books there in order. The library is always /that/ quiet until an emo teen (Fi) comes in and randomly opens some classified books the old man keep to himself. It makes the old man sad.

And there are some times
when a little boy, aged about 3 (Ne), dashes into the library, randomly drop the books away from it shelves, and doesn’t bother to tidy up. He draws rainbows on some of the books. The librarian’s always mad at him—but alas! Oh, yet the sage old man is truly sage—he approaches the boy and gives him a candy to calm him down. Because, actually the old man is happier whenever the kid is around!


ESFJ
My mind is like a living room where a chatty mom like to have discussions about daily life with other family members (Fe). Sometimes she likes to talk with her husband, who are really careful and remembers everything like the name of his teacher in elementary school (Si). They have 2 kids, one of them is really fun to be with. He is really mischievous and likes to do pranks on people (Ne), and the other is like to learn about anything that is given to him tho this child is sometimes nonexistent because their family overshadow him (Ti). By the way, I forgot to tell that the mom is basically an ambitious business woman too (Te grip). A really professional business woman that tries to protect her family by doing her best.

ISFJ
I can’t find other places that is more suitable than home with a family living on it to describe my mind. So, I describe it as a warm and tidy home because a woman with straight, long, black hair (Si) always organize it well. A stick-to-the-plan Mommy has her own schedule for everyday. She has a husband (Fe) who is fashionable and smells good. Every time this family have dinner together, he curious about what his significant other do all day long and even motivate them. He is very good at words. This sweet couple has two children. The first one is 8 years old (Ti) who ask about many things while they are having dinner. He likes to analyze everything and sometime, people too. And the youngest one is a little cute girl aged about 5 (Ne). She is having fun with mess up everything which make her Mom going mad. Nevertheless, this ‘conflict’ always end up with her Mom who clean it (again) patiently.

ISTP
my mind is like some sort of workshop which consisting of a cold researcher who manage to research things and have big curiosities (Ti) he gain help from a young photographer in a midst of gaining information but this young photographer always make a mess since he is young and curious and always being an impulsive but somehow he works fast so he kinda help (Se) the workshop also gain a help from an ambitious woman who makes vision for the workshop but since she doesn’t come much most likely she only comes when the researcher is under stress and makes the workshop kinda lack of vision lol (Ni). The reaearcher have a girlfriend which kind of caring but since the researcher never came and affectionate to her she always show up to the workshop with an angry tantrum and crying mercilessly, messing around the workshop (Fe)

ESFP
since i AM a hoe for memes im going to be referring my cognitive functions as one. there is this guy (Se) who always looks for & recreates latest trending memes and let his friend (Fi) do whatever he wants with the memes. Fi decides to help him share only memes that he thinks are the bomb and could go viral on the world wide web. another friend of him (Te), whom assists Fi in sharing the memes, Te knows where is it the best to share memes so that they go viral in a blink of an eye. and the last friend of Se (Ni), the one who always persuades him to sell his memes for good money which he has agreed to the idea but he always forgets to get it done because… honk honk new memes are coming through!!!


ESTP
This shopaholic girl found a cute store at the end of the road. As she enters the store, she heard several conversation from another shopper and the workers there about the new product (Se) and she’s just triggered as well to buy it! And suddenly she remembered she could make the same thing as she saw (Ni) and she think again for spending too much money for not-so-important thing, & more eco-friendly if she just made it from recycled stuff… (Fe) “but im helping the economy, I’m not a shopaholic! I’m going to buy it anyway..” (Ti)

ESTJ
My mind is like a big wall street office with a lot of employee , and all of the employee is a crazy street hustler who wants to achieve one clear goal that already set by their boss (Te) . And the boss is very detailed about his goal so he always plans everything perfectly. So the journey to his goal is a clear path forward with every step perfectly planned (Si) . Even though he has made everything planned out perfectly , he still open to his employee’s opinion about his plan . Don’t be mad If your employee got more efective plan than yours , It’s not about being right or more superior , it’s about achieving the goal (Ne) . Despite his materialistic point of view , he still believe that every business man has to play fair in business (Fi) . He doesn’t believe in bribery because it’s incompetence as fuck. He only believes in hard work.

ENTP
Main role of my life story was a young boy aged 5, named Ne, having a best friend, a little girl who always tried to attract everyone she meets, named Fe. They two then explored the world together, searching for what they believe as life. Once, they met a charming man with IQ of 145, named Ti, on their searching. With his wisdom, Ti took part in the team, with the two kids alongside him. Along the way, Ti as the oldest one navigated the two kids. Anyway, where is my Si? Oh, I guess I left her on the floor under my scattered books of history. Shit! The team must go back home to see Si. As the result, they decided to go home to see Si. The team then arrived home, while Si tried to settle down the three. It always feels homey while they have met her. I guess that’s how my cognitive pathway runs.

ENTJ
If I were to personify my cognitive functions, I would start by introducing you to a visionary 50 year old CEO of a big company that produces guitars (Te), sitting on his chair in the morning in an elegant suit, thinking of new ways of conquering the industry. He’ll be working with a 40-year-old chief product engineer (Ni) to develop the kind of guitar their customers want – the most perfect and the most profitable guitars on earth. Together, they’ll create the perfect marketing strategy to pull customers in with a fashionable, up-to-date employee in the marketing department in her late 20s (Se). But it doesn’t stop there. A firm is nothing without its customers. An 18-year-old rocker wannabe coming from an inferior economic background (Fi) has become a rather loyal customer of the guitar company, and even though the CEO is annoyed by how he persistently owes the company money, he applauds the young man for being brave enough to pursue the dream a lot of other people have but don’t have the guts to pursue.

ENFP
Let’s just say there’s this huge party in my head where everyone keeps talking, dancing, and listening to music. The party is placed in an abandoned building, unfinished, but they decorated it to some extend with DIY stuffs and found objects though it is still a huge mess (Ne). One of them decided to separate themself from the crowd, feeling uneasy, and insecure (Fi), drinking alone. What a weirdoooo. Then the party ends when a group of law enforcers (Te) come and tell them to fuck off? You’ve been partying all day and we got reports from people (Si) that one of you tagged the nearest holy place with seemingly weird looking gun that is actually a dick. People are tired of these partying mofos yet they cant do anything because they wont be heard by these bunch of weirdos.

INFP
In the city of wackshit, there lives a stubborn overly sensitive 20-something writer (Fi). He needs to get a life, or at least get a manuscript down, but instead he is busy alternating between angsting over potential tragic plot that he made himself and mooning about humanity from too much reading. He has a best friend, who is a witch (Ne). She wants him to stop sulking so she helps him with his work and together they create more angsty poems, sappy scenarios, or stupid essay. It’s all rainbows and sprinkles and magic and unfinished junk that mostly shall never see the light of days.

Oh,
they have a pet (Si), an old dog who occasionally will wake up and say something helpful like, “oh you can incorporate that time when you managed to human!” or on a bad day it’s “hey you remember that time you fucked up big time and embarrass yourself for eternity you big fucking loser.” When this happen, the witch will start screaming and try to distract the writer with Sparkly New Spells™ to prevent him from going into another slump over the reality check. With all the ruckus, the (tired) editor (Te) who rarely checks on them will come and tell them to get their shit together. Calmly. That’s is until she sees how the place is pretty much a disaster of misdirected pastel shit spells and abandoned drafts for fuck sake i am not getting paid enough for this shits.

INFJ
In the beginning, there was the Spirit (Ni): a consciousness pervading space and existing in intangibility. The Spirit is a symbol of Knowing embodying the air—it is present but you can’t touch or see it. It ceaselessly seeks for meaning and along the way, once powerful enough, the Spirit decided to transform itself into a corporeal being and breathed life to the Mother (Fe). She was made from the earth and incorporated its qualities—warm, committed, reliable yet stubborn at times. But what she wants the most was to provide a medium for growth; to facilitate people’s needs in hopes of cultivating them.

But the Mother was a chimera, especially under harsh conditions. Born from opposing elements, the paradox within gave her shape-shifting abilities. In the dark, she transforms into a cold calculative Serpent (Ti) with a penchant for mind games. But the Serpent is not entirely sinister. Fascinated by the ‘how’s and ‘why’s of the universe, she enjoys swimming in deep waters to pursue Truth. At desperate times, however, the Mother takes another form—this one mischievous and unpredictable—known as the Monkey (Se). While the Spirit’s entity strives for transcendence and stability, the Monkey is an incarnation of materialism and chaos. He is a fiery force driven by the carnal instincts of a primate: hunger, lust, vanity, fun. However, his presence is what gives the Spirit power and perseverance. So the Spirit’s whole being is empowered by all these manifestations, each one serving a purpose and transforming it into an all-encompassing entity built on different elements.

INTJ
“It’s in motion..” said the General as he puts his hand in motion to cover his confident smile. the General has always been the brains behind every operation that is conducted in the war against the Tharkad rebellion. Cold, calm, calculative and always one step ahead. he predicted the ambush from Solaris 3 months before the attack ever happened, thus earning him the title of “The Psychic General”.(Ni)

“All according to plan..
I assume?” Asked the Colonel who was with him at the moment. The Colonel is the General’s right hand man, executing everything to near-perfection. The man has been called aggressive, decisive, and to an extent, ruthless.(Te)

“It can’t be avoided.
Natural selection demands it.” Another answer came from a Captain of the 3rd batallion, a young talented commander. Born in the now destroyed town of Styx, deep inside he seeks vengeance for whom destroyed his family.(Fi)

“Captain!”
“Yes?” “Don’t ever forget about me!” “Back to your post, Sergeant.” The newly appointed Sergeant has been in action for the last several days. Helping the ground troops in suppression of the Tharkad Rebellion. Quick to act at every opportunity, yet never seems to think about the risk. “I don’t think he’ll live long.” Says the Captain.
(Se)

ENFJ
Hey there! Today, I’m going to give you a house tour! Let’s start! So, this is the living room (Fe). This is where I talk, entertain, and serve the guest so that they’re comfortable. Here, you see what I wanted you to see. The second room, is the bathroom (Ni). Just sit on the toilet, spacing out, and suddenly those inspirational juice starts kicking in and you suddenly got those epiphany. Next to it, is the bedroom (Se). Clothes on the bed, guitars & CD’s on the floor, an impaired punching bag hanging. It’s a bloody mess. But, sometimes these things relaxed me. And this table on the corner, is what I call, The Circle (Ti). Every night, I judge my decision throughout the day and write things to improve it for future needs.

Well, that’s the end of the house tour. Thank you for your time and you may leave now.. or, I can make you tea and stay for a couple more minutes, or hours, or if we’re both lucky, until tomorrow morning.

Make yourself at home.

INTP
So basically how they converse with each other in my mind

Ti
: What the fuck is that? How does it come to be that way? Find the answer! Now! *a few moments later come up with an answer*

Ne
: How can you be sure about that? Don’t you consider other factors and possibilities? Or what about we talk about something else more exciting! Oh, oh, this seems fun! Let’s talk about this! Oh, oh, what about that? Don’t you find that more interesting? *and so on and so on*

Si
: *suddenly remembers an embarrassing moment that happened in the past* Ti, help me to solve this! What should’ve I said instead to make it less embarrassing?

Fe
: Well, you know, maybe you shouldn’t have said such mean words to them in the first place..

Ti
: Shut up.

Fe
: B-but, it’s possible that they felt that way be-becau–

Ti
: Sssh.. only my rational explanations matter.

So,
yeah, Ti is basically such a dictator and a control freak, while Ne is an overexcited child with brilliant ideas that’s hard to control. Si is a nostalgic guy who’d rather live in the past, and Fe is a timid and sensitive kid who can make sensible points at times but is rarely given a chance.

MBTI Spotlight: INFP (Soe Hok Gie)

 

(Penulis, aktivis, dan yang terpenting adalah pejuang hak segenap rakyat Indonesia)

“Saya tak mau jadi pohon bambu, saya ingin menjadi pohon oak yang berani menentang angin.”

Fi – Gie dikenal sebagai orang yang idealis yang tidak suka mengikuti arus. Idealismenya tentang negara Indonesia yang lebih baik membuatnya mempunyai pandangan yang sangat objektif terhadap pemerintahan Indonesia di masa orde lama yang menyebabkan keberaniannya untuk mengkritik pemerintahan yang dipimpin Soekarno ini.Setelah pemerintahan Soekarno jatuh , Kritik keras dari Gie pun tak berhenti pada saat pemerintahan orde baru. Disaat media sedang bungkam pasca G30SPKI , Gie dengan berani menulis berita tentang pembunuhan masal anggota PKI di Bali yang menuai reaksi keras dari rezim orde Baru.

Ne – Gie dikenal sebagai orang yang suka bertukar ide dan pendapat dengan orang-orang yang memiliki ideologi atau pandangan berbeda , namun ia tercatat tidak pernah tergabung dalam salah satu ormas atau ideologi. Hal ini dikarenakan ia memiliki pandangan bahwa sangat banyak kemungkinan untuk memajukan Indonesia dan baginya tergabung ke salah satu ideologi / ormas hanya akan mempersempit pandangannya akan kemajuan Indonesia.

Si – Gie tidak terlalu memperlihatkan fungsi ini, fungsi ini hanya terlihat dalam kesukaanya mempelajari sejarah-sejarah dari ideologi yang berkembang ditengah bangsa Indonesia saat itu.

Te – Meskipun merupakan fungsi inferior , Gie cukup sering menggunakan fungsi ini untuk mendukung idealismenya akan kemajuan Indonesia yaitu dengan memimpin dan menjadi pelopor gerakan demonstrasi mahasiswa tahun 1966.

[ADMINS HOUR] “What’s Your Retirement Goal?”

(DISCLAIMER: These are the individual views of our admins, we don’t try to represent it as the general views from each type.)

ESTJ
My retirement goal is all about spending my money on expensive shit , like live the rest of my life on my mega yacth at bahama’s beach , attend expensive social event , travel the world with my private jet and impress some pussy with my Lamborghini. And what about my kids? Fuck it i don’t want to have a kids they’re sucks , I’m not a good guy type to raise a kids and do shit like that. I might be married yes , but i plan not to have kids.And you guys think my retirement goal is too big? Fuck no , i think your dream is too small. I’m willing to work hard 24/7 to achieve it. And i won’t stop working till i can buy my 50 ft yacth that costs around 26 $ without tax. I take a risk that you don’t , so i can live a life that you won’t.

ISTJ
I want to:
• Get some moneh from my clinic/hospital yeaah. I ain’t gonna work my ass.
• Live until my spouse’s/my death. But no, I ain’t gonna wipe his shits. We can hire somebody to do it.
• See my only child raise and breeding another children. But I don’t want to take care of my grandson/daughter.
• Build a library inside my hoz bcs y not
• Omg I want to make a MBTI foundation, can I??
• Go on vacations with my spouse.
• Write a book.
• L E A R N SOME M U S I C.
• Yes I know those r boring killmenow

ISTP
I am not the type who’s going to plan this. But if I can dream this I want to build a cafe (which sell vinyls) integrated with library who also invite indie musician to promote their music (which I in the other hand will going to sponsor them). Aside of that I’m going to have a lunch in London and Dinner in Paris while also Skiing in Norway. My retire plan will involving me (either alone or with partner idk) travel around the world or look after my library. Yes you read it right I’m not going to have kids that’s why I will not involve additional supporting character here.

ENTJ
When I retire, I plan to build the biggest aeroplane in the world using my fortune, as I believe that this would protect my legacy for decades to come. I will travel around the world with my future husband using this plane. I plan to receive an award from my current university for the things I will be doing over the course of my career, including building a hospital for autistic children during my retirement (for those who said I can never receive an award from a top 50 uni – watch me). Furthermore, I plan to buy a big mansion in maldives to live in with my future husband, and also teach my grandchildren the basics of investment and how to manage their finances. I will even open a school just for that and become the headmaster since you don’t learn financial literacy at school and it’s an important skill to have. In short, I’ll never really retire. Working is in my blood.

ESFP
honestly, i havent really thought about me/my life in general in the future. but basically, when i retire, the only problem i want to have is to choose which make up product to use HAHA LMAO.
BUT HONESTLY, TRULY, i came here to have a good time, not to have a long time. so if death came say hi before i got retired it wont have me shook💯

ISFJ
To live my life with my loved ones. To make a meal for my children. To pick them up from school. To have dinner together. To eat ice cream or watch movies. To listen all of their problems. To be there at their worst time. To know about their first date. To understand them and what they wanna be. To see them grow and lovely. To write a short morning greeting for my husband next to his cup of coffee. To love him everyday, everytime. To manage our family. To make sure they never skip their breakfast. To spend my days on my favorite books. To adore my favorite fictional characters. To enjoy a peaceful life. And I’m healthy as well to be beside them, like, always.

ISFP
I’ll see myself in a house where the garden is filled with some plants and fluffy grass. Taking care of plants, cooking, making breakfast for my till-death-significant other aka 4ever bae, reading new books everyday, experimenting some recipes most likely will be my daily activities. Travelling and such maybe no, cause probably I’ll do my travelling in 30-40ish. I know it sounds basic af but what do u expect, isfp checking all tumblr notifications in her late 70?

ENFP
I have a very naïve dream of managing a creative space where youngsters can meet up and organize events. It will be an extension of my private studio, so I can share my works and knowledge to people who want to learn and see the things I make (for a fee of course!). People can also put their crafts to sell in my place (a consignment store for crafty people!). There will be library with mostly art, architecture, design and culture books, and I will keep a lot of cats~ My family is fine, though my grounded husband is tired of my shit, and my kids and grandkids would constantly roll their eyes everytime they hear my plans of starting a project and never finish it. (laugh)

ESFJ
If you ask me about my life plans, you are going to hear about many ambitious things like CMO or having the biggest bakery and cafe chain in the world. Talking about retirement is different tho. I just wanna be happy. I would like to live with unlimited digits on my bank so that I can make myself and people around me happy. I’m going to live peacefully, maybe having kids, I dunno yet. I wanna live in a secluded place where I can be with people I love the most, I wanna buy flowers everyday to make my significant other feels happy everyday, I wanna buy things everyday for others, like giving a homeless kid a scholarship, something like that. Little things that make people happy. I believe, that when I die, I am going to live in people’s heart, I am going to live in a book, live through their words. Aaaaaaah what a life!!

INFP
With how careless I am with both my health and body, I… don’t think I will live that long. But I hope to live long enough to see my dreams fulfilled. I want to have houses or shelters for troubled young people seeking for help or a home. By my retirement. I will live in a house in some peaceful European town that is not too far from the city, entirely designed to my whim (I can see every room representing my beloved fandoms), I’ll have a cafe-slash-library next door. I also still want to write and make arts, either actual books if I can ever commit to finishing one or maybe short fictions or poems or other form of arts. If I manage to snag myself a spouse and a couple of probably adopted kids, I hope they have enough patience with me. Lastly, I will still cry over both newly acquired in the future and old fictional characters on tumblr and root for my otps if they ever become canon. Tl:dr, I hope it’s a fulfilling life with a meaning that I won’t regret.

ENFJ
Retire = to leave ones job or cease to work.

I’ll never retire. I wanted to have my own clothing line (I’ve dreamed about this for so long tbh haha), my own art galleries featuring many sculptures, paintings, etc by many passionate artists who just started their career. So that they look back and said “this is the place where my life begin”. I wanted to have disciples, to teach, to pass on the knowledge that I possess. I’d love to be on talkshows or hold my own seminar in various cities, even countries! I want to spread what I believe is right, and is beneficial to the world.

As we grow older, our body will be weaker. I, eventually, will have to decrease the amount of “work” I have to do. But, I stand by my principle. I’ll never retire. Because, assuming that I’ve already found the love of my life and have mini versionS of me, being a dad, is the ultimate career.

INFJ
To be honest, (professional) work has never been my focus in life. I’ve always been more interested in investing my time in personal and social projects. Looking to the future, I’ve always dreamed of either living a simple life of a hermit somewhere in Scandinavia or actually leaving my mark on the world by doing what I love most: teaching, caring and creating.

I have the silliest dream of becoming the adoptive mother of dozens of children but since that’s impractical I hope I can actualize either: a) owning a school for children of all backgrounds and talents or b) building my own foster home. I want to continue sharing my ideas and nurturing people’s spirits that way. The rest of my time would be spent writing and making art to keep my creative light aflame.

INTJ
Never have I ever thought of retiring, I’m gonna work, work, and work until I have enough money to disprove the Fermi Paradox. I believe that there’s extraterrestrial life out there, and I won’t stop until I have all the money in the world to actually find those lives. All I’m doing right now is for that goal, I believe that humans is adaptive enough to adapt with the changing universe. So my goal would be:
– Invest in research on how human can live in space and adapt to other planets
– Invest in extraterrestrial researches
– And if I still have money and I still have incomes from my businesses… I’ll just go to sleep. Yet still making money.
– Having some coffee while watching space stations would be nice.

INTP
– Living a peaceful life with dogs and cats in a house-slash-library (with full collection of books ofc) open for public
– Have lived to see human’s technological advancement (humanity starting to enter type 2 civilisation in Kardashev’s scale, dyson swarm being built, cure for HIV and various cancers, kinda wishful i know) and first alien contact
– Die via voluntary euthanasia once I contract some chronic disease/become vegetable/just have enough with life (target: possibly around age 60-70) or uploaded my mind to the grid

[ADMINS HOUR] “Life is a Competition, Yes or No?”

(DISCLAIMER: These are the individual views of our admins, we don’t try to represent it as the general views from each type.)

ENTP: Life is a competition? to me it’s a yes somehow. We are competitive beings, always wanted to achieve more. Competition in academics, in love, in getting all of our needs fulfilled. Life is a competition but the competition isn’t winning or losing. Sure, sometimes you win at life, and sometimes you don’t. People has their own ups and downs, but really, life is supposed to be a competition to evolve, to be better than what you were before.

INTP: Competition has been the driver of humanity’s growth and advancement, and it’s true that it created a lot of benefits for humankind.

But personally though, I hate to see it as such. The idea of it made you only want to compete and compete more with others in all aspects of life, to be left feeling incompetent when you failed to gain what you wanted to achieve, and comparing yourself to those who always seem to achieve more. I guess life doesn’t always have to be that way, to me it’s all about exploring and experiencing as much things as possible, and to do that you don’t always have to “compete head-to-head” with other people. Competing with your own mind though, that’s what I keep trying to do.

ESFJ: Competition, for me is the act of acknowledging others’ people perks and compare it with yours. Sometimes it is good because it helps you to grow out of your insecurities; tho most of the time it is bad because you tend to see other people as your enemies, not inspiration.

I personally believe
, the only person you want and should have comparison and competition with is yourself. I always try to become the best version of myself. I do not wanna compare, and I do not wanna compete with others because it will become a never ending want that consume you in the future.

I always remind myself
: “Comparison is the best thief of joy” and I think it can be applied to competition as well.

ISFJ: Life is (not always) a competition. Because what belongs to you, will always find a way. I prefer say that every human being is competing with theirself to achieve the best they can do. They aren’t competing in life, rather competing with theirself to achieve something. And for me, life is such a pleasure thing that we can enjoy without needed to compare with the others.

ESTJ : Fuck yes life’s a competition. Because u have to stand out in this crowded world full of people. When you make a project or something, thousand of people out there already have the same vision as you,and at this moment I think you can’t just go with the flow, u have to grind learn and adapt fast so your project isn’t losing with them.And I think not only work, u also have to be competitive in every aspect of life like love,hobby,etc because I personally think competition motivate you to grow better! To be a better person than you were yesterday. To help you win through this life,you have to be aware that competition is everywhere.

ISTJ: From the very beginning, our conception is all about competition. Everyone and everything has got its own places. That’s just how life works. Everyone’s gotta struggle to have a place in this world, to get what they want. Due to discrepancies between the number of people who wants the place and the number of places available, yes, people have to compete each other. It’s human’s basic ego (it’s even how nature selection works, right?). But they have to know what they’re fighting for, will it be good for them, when to stop, what is good/healthy, what is overwhelming, when to cooperate, and how to handle defeat. So, yea, I believe that this life is a competition, but everything has to be balanced. Compete wisely. Never forget that others have their rights, too.

ENFJ: Yes, life is ALWAYS a competition. Here are the components :

Player
: You
Competitor: Your… (Seven Deadly Sins)
Way to Win: Beat the fuck out of them
Prize: Self-control, inner peace, gratitude.

Basically
, the one you have to compete with is what is within you, unseen, your mental virus. Why virus? First of all, virus never die, if your immune isn’t strong enough to beat them, they can always come back. Secondly, they’re contagious.

What scary is
, that everybody got their own virus, their own competition. So, in order to have a healthy society, not only everybody must defeat their own viruses, but also to be immune against other people viruses, and to possibly help treat those who cant supress their virus. Everything starts with yourself.

So life is a competition
, and to be victorious is very important, not only for your own sake, but also for others.

INTJ: If life’s isn’t a competition, then what else is it?

INFJ: Probably. On the surface, it may seem like it. This endless yearning to reach the top is why life itself is called a ratrace. And you’ve had people telling you that you were born to become a winner since you came out as The Sole Surviving Sperm Out of Many Others™.

But too often
we assume that the so-called competition is between the self and the world/others, the true competition is in fact about the self against itself. I think several other admins have pointed out about this, too, and I agree with them.

Yet I must stress
that life is not merely that. It is only a competition if you allow it to be so. I simply think that when one has gone past the deep-rooted mindset that to live is to compete, that’s when true living happens—unleashed from the desire to shake, rattle and roll violently against /what you are/, disillusioned by /what you must or should be/.

ISTP: It is. Because I believe you are not living in this world to be this mediocre haha, in the other hand as a competitive person I’d like to believe that competition is the only thing that makes you grow in a qualitative way.

ENTJ: It is, whether you realize it or not. Everyone competes to survive, thus making competition a part of human nature.

An analogy
of this would be the creation and use of money. Money was created to avoid bartering, which was initially the solution to people actively competing for scarce resources. But money, as a terrific solution, also created an even bigger “problem” – a wider scale of competition among humans. People start competing for jobs for survival (which comes from money to buy their daily necessities) or even to thrive with wealth.

In conclusion
, competition is unavoidable. Competition will always be there, whether you like it or not. Competition is a part of life.

[ADMINS HOUR] MBTI & Perspective in God and Religion

(DISCLAIMER: These are the individual views of our admins, we don’t try to represent it as the general views from each type.)

 

INTP: Personally, I don’t think god plays a significant role in my life. I don’t mind if he exists, I don’t mind if he doesn’t, and if he does exist I don’t think he’ll be an anthropomorphic god like the way Abrahamic religions portray him to be. He’ll be like something we can’t imagine, which can exist within this universe or outside the boundaries of this universe, and he’s definitely not a personal god in which you can ask to help you and actually care whether you do good or bad, he definitely doesn’t need you to praise his name and do anything in his name because he’s so much bigger than that. He definitely doesn’t give a fuck to each single individual which is like a speck within this huge universe.

As for religion
, I don’t believe in an organised religion, especially when it becomes politicised and used as a tool for political gains of certain people. Spirituality should be a personal matter and never be regulated, it is more than attending church and mosque frequently, and definitely not shoving your personal interpretation of the words of god to people.

ISFJ: Aku sangat percaya akan Tuhan dan kepercayaanku. Ya, sangat. Aku percaya akan janji dan ancamanNya yang ditulis dalam kitab suci kami. Bahkan, bisa dibilang aku tidak sedikitpun memiliki keraguan akan itu; tidak terbersit sama sekali. Apa Dia mampu menolong setiap manusia? Ya, sangat mampu. Atau mungkin kemampuannya melebihi itu. Aku tidak peduli jika sebagian orang tidak percaya bahwa Tuhan ada, atau percaya Tuhan ada tapi tidak ingin terikat pada keyakinan tertentu. Aku tidak akan memaksakan keyakinanku terhadap mereka yang memiliki perspektif berbeda dan berkata bahwa mereka salah, aku benar. Toh mereka yang bertuhan belum tentu baik dan yang tidak bertuhan juga belum tentu tidak baik. Setiap orang memiliki pemikirannya sendiri, namun, dalam kasusku, dari sekian banyak sudut pandang akan Tuhan dan keyakinan, aku memilih untuk mempercayai keberadaan sekaligus kuasaNya.

ENTJ: I don’t believe in organised religion, but I do believe one thing: it controls the world. It controls the way people behave and think, and even feel about certain things. It’s something that controls the smallest things to even big things such as the economy and the government. It contributes to the productivity of the world at times (motivation of people in the government, business ethics, etc). I don’t mind religion as long as it has a productive impact on society; but when it doesn’t, that’s when religion is irrelevant to me. As for God, I somehow believe in His existence, however it’s not something that I would like to discuss in public as my faith is of no importance to anyone else but myself and it’s just something that keeps me going throughout all the work I do, hoping that if there is a God out there, He will grant me success if I work for it.

ENTP: I actually believe in God. But I don’t think organized religion would do much. I mean religion exists so we can have sth to believe in, or preparation for afterlife. But to me it looked like a tradition tho, as it is kind of restricting my actions to me. I must do some certain things, I am not allowed to do some things, I cannot eat or drink some certain things, and stuff. But at times it explains some things that miraculously happen but cannot be explained with logic. Like, how does mukjizat happened? Azab? And stuff????? The existence of jinn, anything supernatural? If not by belief, how can u explain those things happen???
Anw, religion is a complex thing. And so is God– the one that has powers, so great that we are created by God.

INFJ: As a child, I could be considered pretty religious and believed in God without a doubt. But growing up, I came to realize that my beliefs concerning God and religion were the product of my parents’ upbringing. That’s when I decided to find God on my own, that’s considering if he even exists at all.

These days
, I still have a lot of questions left unanswered about God but of course there may never be a sure way to answer them, even though some would recommend faith but can’t rely on faith. But even if God exists, I guess he wouldn’t be super picky and manipulative. “It”—as I prefer to call it—would just be a force within the universe that doesn’t need a name or characteristics. It wouldn’t care about who you sleep with, how you dress, what you eat or whatever. It just exists within all of us, like some kind of energy force.

About religion
, I think more often than not people exploit it for all the wrong reasons—power, hatred, violence, the list just never ends. What began as something spiritual and sacred now is just a tool to justify evil. So I oppose organized religions but respect spirituality, because they’re two different things. I believe there are many roads to Rome so each road is valid as long as we don’t claim it to be The Only Road.

ESFJ: Do I believe in God?
Yes.
I can see and feel God in your eyes, at the corner watching us, in people’s smile, above that tree on your backyard, everywhere.

Do I believe in religion? I don’t think so:( I’m personally upset with people that put their religions above everything. They became fundamentalists and never stop judge others, when all of their religions told them to love others.

I still have that tiny light called faith inside of my heart, tho. In the future, I’m not limiting myself. Maybe I’m just upset with the current conditions of religions lmao.

ISTJ: I believe God exists. He’s everywhere. Everything in this world only points to God. Even our—at least my—life is God’s magnificent plan.
Nevertheless, for me, religion is a way to approach our God with some rituals and dos and donts. I am currently despising religious system because it’s too….politicized. God shouldn’t be politicized in any ways. God should be the center, not religion.

I perceive
religious rules as a way to show our gratitude to God. I do that to show God how grateful I am. I am not pursuing heaven nor hell, because I personally don’t believe it.. IMO heaven and hell is God’s way to make us do good and be good; however, people nowadays are only focused in pursuing heaven and forgetting the essence of God in their deeds.

ISFP: menangos sejenak karena mesti nulis lagi
Well, I do believe in God. I believe there’s higher power. Who can see us, but not controlling nor checking every one of us.
I wouldn’t say that I wanna be or I am in a religion. Simply because it’s too complicated for me. And I don’t find it useful for my life.

Ok. Some religions tell us “what’s good and what’s not” and they have this term called sin. From what I believe, as long as we do good for others, sin doesn’t matter. As long as we don’t do something bad for others, sin doesn’t matter. It’s personal to have faith in something, and it’s really unimportant and useless to tell the whole world about your beliefs. Keep it personal. And don’t ever let your religion make you stupid.

Ps: I’m actually in a religion. It’s called Dark Side. Our Lord is Palpatine.

ENFP: I believe in flying spaghetti monster!!!!!!

INTJ: I personally don’t really care whether god exists or not since it doesn’t affect my life in any way. If God exists, then all I can say is “Cool, thanks.”

We’re human beings, we’re the master and the slave, the creator and the destroyer, the healer and the killer. We’re the masters of our own fate.(in the immortal words of Friedrich Nietzsche; the Ubermensch)

That line of thinking lead me to be very skeptical of religion. And I may write an whole essay about “Why Religion is Unimportant in Running a Country”.

So I’ll stick with “Agama Indomie”

ISTP: Religion is a product of civilization. The way human try to obey something by telling something bigger exist and have an ability to give judgement in order for them to follow a certain order. But I do believe there’s something bigger that control us but it doesn’t mean on one entity like ppl believe about God. The only single entity that can control us is Indomie.

ESTJ: Do I believe in God?

I Believe in Greater Power than us but I’m not sure what’s out there, and i like to think we human are exist because the environmental on earth supports us to exist and start evolve.I choose to believe this because it’s more logical for me than to believe in God, and beside that we also have really big galaxy and the existence of living creature isn’t really remarkable achievement.

Do I believe in religion?
Tbh no , I was raised in catholic and Christian school, first I believed in this “religion” things, but growing up, I find out that there’s so many religion in this world. There are like 3000 religion, so when u say do you believe in God? I’m sorry what god? There are about 3000 religion in this world eh. And beside that I don’t agree with the concept that someone purposely make human and put them in this world to be nice and then send the nice one to heaven and the other to hell.
This is just my opinion and perspective.

ENFJ: Who is God? The strongest being? The one that created land, The Earth, The Universe? The one that gave life to all living creatures? The one that instructed all humans to praise, admire, love him/herself and punished those who disobey? The one that invented the rule of good or bad, right or wrong? Let’s see.. He/She created the humans.. created a place to live.. created RULES, created a system, and created consequences. If that’s the case, it looks like we’re just handmade blank paper in a shop, waiting to be sold or shred. God, is bored. But I understand him/her, If I were in his/her position, I’d totally do the same 🙂

Tuhan & Agama
hanya masalah kepercayaan dari individu. Tentu, orang-orang bisa percaya kepada Tuhan & menganut Agama yg berbeda. Tapi, apakah itu harus ditebus dengan dunia yg terpecah belah?

[ADMINS HOUR] “What Is Love to You?”

(DISCLAIMER: These are the individual views of our admins, we don’t try to represent it as the general views from each type.)

INTP: To me it’s like a game that I suck at *cough*. Personally it’s hard for me to love people since there are so much variables for me to decide to love someone. I’ve dated girls in which I’m not even sure that I even love them, I can be sure about what I like–but love is another level which I can’t really “get” well. All I know is that I think I love my family, and if not then I’m definitely on the process on learning to love them. Being an INTP, I rarely think with my heart and always stuck with my head (fokken Ti) made me hard to process thoughts as foreign and as irrational as love. So yeah, it’s not my strongest point.

ESTJ: Menurut gw cinta itu dua orang yang saling suka satu dengan yang lain dan mau bener” sepenuhnya terbuka dan percaya sama orang tersebut(me as an estj sangat tertutup dlm masalah perasaan) dan rela ngerelain ego masing” demi komitmen bersama.

ISTJ: Sampai detik ini sebenernya masih bingung ngedefine ‘love’ kayak apa. Tapi yang gue rasain adalah ketika seseorang itu udah terintegrasi jadi diri lo sendiri; dia sakit lo ikut sakit, lo ga malu jadi diri lo sendiri, terbuka, dll. Lagipula itu imo bukan perasaan, tapi komitmen dan kerja keras karena nyatuin dua kepala jadi 1 itu susah banget. Menurut gue vibe2 yg bikin saling pgn deket itu lbh ke attraction dan infatuation dibanding cinta.

ESFP: I think love is bullshit. Because people say that one day you’ll meet your soulmate but how are you supposed to know who is and who isn’t? No one knows the real soulmate and so it’s kinda bullshit. But I also think that love is a really beautiful thing! People are willing to do anything for love(to significant others, family, friends). And everytime you love someone it’s special, because you share a piece of something so intimate and true to them.

ESFJ: love is something sweet, something that can warms you up and lit the fire in your soul. It is abstract and rigid at the same time, as for me it is a feeling that should be translated into actions. Without actions, love means nothing 💗

ENTP: isn’t love a chemical reaction??? — just kidding. I think love is something quite irrational yet quite intriguing. Irrational because it can blind us all (me included, sometimes). But intriguing bcs you get a partner in your life (well probably at some point of life). It is irrationally bittersweet because I think love has its ups and downs (whether the problem you’re facing can be irrational at times), but also really calming because you get somebody on your side so you wouldn’t have to face the world alone.

ISTP: sebenarnya love itu gimana sih? Something that makes your heart beating fast? Baper dan cry over a guy? I didn’t really understand sih. I think love is just a mere justification for someone who looking for affection. Lagipula love juga comes from oxytocin, endorphine etc. I’d like to believe sebenarnya love itu transactional you offer something they offer you affection and vice versa. Even worse i believe bahkan konsep keluarga itu cuma egoisme manusia untuk mempertahankan their legacy. Tapi i really like the concept afeksi ga harus dalam ikatan, as long as you believe they will give things you need and fulfill your needs then it could be called love?

ENFJ: love is the heart’s way to express egoism. I mean, it favors one than another, and I believe, most, are for the right causes. It is now and will always out of humans power, meaning it’s uncontrollable. Love is the indication of strength on our emotion, likewise muscles on our body. Overall, love may be tricky, yet exquisite.

ENTJ: love is a force. It drives people to do things: date, marry, have children, commit suicide, die of a heart attack from being too brokenhearted and stressed out, you name it. It drives the world like other emotions do. If someone were to analyse and fully understand how love (and other emotions) works, they could control people and events and take over the world. And that’s what I want to do – my lack of understanding about feelings is the only thing that constrains me from doing this.

ISFJ: Cinta adalah ketika kita melihat seseorang seakan menjadi dunia kita. Ketika kita merasa tidak mampu untuk melihat hal lain selain seseorang itu. Ketika kita mulai mengorbankan sesuatu untuk dia, tidak peduli seberapa banyak orang yang berkata “Ah, itu tidak perlu,”. Cinta adalah pengorbanan, cinta adalah kepercayaan, cinta adalah sesuatu yang membuatmu melakukan hal-hal yang sebenarnya kamu tahu bahwa itu irrasional, tapi, kamu tidak punya daya untuk menolak itu, sebab, kamu merasa itu adalah hal yang benar.

INTJ: Love is such a feeble concept, It’s humanity trying to simplify a natural reaction to your sense of desire. Such as it is a conceptual idea, it can be applied in many forms, negative or positive. A love for your cat, for your knowledge, for your fetish of BDSM, it’s all desires that we want. While I must admit, I am not one to talk about “Love” since it is really hard for me to convey my “Feelings”, I do find it a really useful word in making others do what I want.

INFP: First of all, understand that human are basically selfish. It’s hard-wired in our gene and much needed for our survival. Survival of the fittest, correct? Understand that altruism, in its darker shade, is just another selfish act. You help people, because you inherently need something in return. You might not do this consciously, you just operate so. Let’s not repel selfishness for fear of looking immoral. It’s just human’s way of being. Done?
Now imagine one situation when you ‘misfire’ and thus, instead of doing what is needed for survival, you surrender completely for one single cause. Abolishment of ego. Null. There’s no you, ego-death.

That is love to me. You cease surviving. It’s the ultimate ticket for you being totally vulnerable. Unprotected.
As crushable as a baby crouching in mother’s womb.
And you’re willing to be this stark naked in front of other being. Who knows what could happened.
Or you could be on the other side, watching the love-stricken being stripped out of layers in front of you. What would you do?
When the small person inside you get touched by other being,
When you decide to embrace the fragile being in front of you instead of repulsing them,
I think that’s when love happens.
Foolest concept ever, that is.

ISFP: love for me isn’t smth that could be really easy to be found. i mean lyk, u need to at least know each other for months or years to know or to feel love. that’s why i dont believe in “love at first sight’ bcs i know it isnt love its just lust. and what i believe, u’ll never know what love is until u feel that ur heart is broken. not just as simple as “putus” or “diselingkuhin” smth, but broken when u feel that there’s no chance at ALL to be together anymore. and that’s when you know that you’ve fallen too deep in love.

ENFP: For me, love is something fluid. Some might associate it with lust, some associate it with devotion, or comfort, or pain even. Some look for the most logical explanation, like ISTP and ENTP said, it’s a chemical reaction in our brain, and that I also agree. Love is abstract and there’s no right way to put it into words how each person perceive love.

I feel love very deeply. I associate it with my compassion and empathy towards other living being. I believe in platonic love, yet I kind of reject the idea of non platonic love between two people. A couple one day might decide that they don’t love each other anymore. That kind of love fades, what remains is companionship. Pfft. Eternal love. There’s no such thing.

In the end, I wished that I have such naive and wonderful view about love like fellow SJs here have. It’s much more simpler to see it that way, rather than being cynical and to say that love is transactional.

INFJ: I’ve decided to stop defining love after realizing that every single definition you give to the word rings true to some extent and yet, still, the feeling is still as inherent in our psyche and doesn’t cease to puzzle.

You can be cynical
about it, you can act antagonistic towards it, you may embrace it with open arms, you may chase after it like crazy—from one approach to another, love is universal and transcends our capacity to translate it with 100% accuracy.

But of course
, let’s get a little more personal about this. I’ll just say that I’m not the kind of person to say “I love you” easily. I might throw around those words easier through indirect text like this, but face-to-face, I think there were only less than five instances of me saying those words truthfully and genuinely in my two decades of living.

To me
, these are heavy words. And like most of the NTs and SPs here, I’m still struggling to fully understand the concept. So more often than not, I resort to saying things like “I care about you”, “I like you”, etc. rather than using ‘love’ because why spread around something you don’t understand?
