Personality Type Interview: ENFP Remi

interviewThis is the first Extrovert interview and I’m very happy to be posting it 😀


Name: Remembrance “Remi” Baker

Age: 14

Gender: Female

Personality Type: ENFP

Say a Little About Yourself: Hi! I’m Remi. I’m bubbly, outgoing, very compassionate, and a tad bit crazy. I love musical theatre and acting, singing, and all that jazz (Sorry bad pun! Couldn’t help it! 😉 ) I love standing out and standing up for things I believe in.

Me: When taking the test, did you ever receive a result that differs from your personality type now? Or have you always consistently been this type?

Remi: I’ve always been an ENFP. Never changed.

Do you think your personality type affects your writing at all?

R: Absolutely. I don’t write very well with the dark depressing matters and elaborate on the happy, fluffy moments.

How do you handle positive emotions?

R: I generally love to share it with the world, even excessively to the point where they get annoyed. Generally frozen yogurt is required during extremely positive stuff.

Negative emotions?

R: Oooh. I have a strong fiery temper, which can fly off the handle a lot. I’ve always been this way even when I was little. When I’m sad, I over-react…a lot.

How do you handle stress?

R: This one is a biggy for me. Its very easy for me to snap under pressure and completely break down. I’ve found while researching a lot of ENFPs have PTSD from a stressful event (myself included). I tend to have block out where everything just goes dark. I can hear you, but its my brain’s way of handling stress.

How do you deal with confrontation?

R: This, I’m pretty good at. I can come up with witty retorts on the fly. But if I’m in a depressed mood or recently experienced a PTSD flashback or etc, I bundle up and accept everything they are saying.

How do you take compliments?

R: I thrive on compliments. Its something that gets me going. If someone notices my work or something about me, it makes me proud and want to achieve more.

What’s a big misunderstanding about your type?

R: I think in general people think we are happy all the time. Guess what? We’re not. There are times where I just want to drop everything and curl up in a ball.

What’s a positive trait of your personality type?

R: We’re bubbly, willing to make friends, and can’t hold grudges very well. Like, I think the longest I’ve held a grudge is a week.

What’s a negative trait?

R: I tend to blame myself for every little thing that happens. It’s all my fault, even if I’m not in control of it.

What personality types do you get along with the most?

R: Most of the time, an IN. We balance each other out nicely. My best friend is an INFJ.

What personality types do you not get along with?

R: Hmm…well, I’ve never asked my ‘enemies’ what personalities they are, but I don’t get along with arrogant, straight-minded people, or ones who think that everything they say is correct in life.

Mind naming some of your hobbies?

R: I love to be onstage, acting, singing, dancing, and performing in general. I also love to write, be it poetry or novels.

What are you favorite books?

R: Handpicked by Melissa Gunther, Celia’s Journey (also by Melissa Gunther), The Girl Who Could Fly by Victoria Fester, and all the Harry Potter books.

Favorite movies?

R: Hmm…I don’t really watch movies often. It’s too mindless, too much sitting for me. Probably the Harry Potter movies if I had to pick.

Favorite shows?

R: Reba is definitely one of my favorites. I love to laugh! Others are Agents of SHIELD, and Psych.

You’re about to battle a dragon. What do you do?

R: Insist on going alone. I’m not brave or courageous; I hate to put any of my friends or family into danger. From there I’d probably hide until I figure out their weak spot and form a plan.

Do you think you could handle being a character in your own stories?

R: If it were based only on being an ENFP, then absolutely. But I have Hashimoto’s disease, where a side effect is getting sick if I over-exercise. A lot of my stories have tons of action and fantasy battles, in which I wouldn’t be able to keep up. But mentally? Yep!

NaNoWriMo Orlando Kick Off Party

sticker

Ohh look at that awesome NaNoWriMo sticker I got 😀

Yesterday was the Orlando Region Kick Off party and it was the first ever NaNo event I’ve gotten to attend. I was very excited (and nervous) to go and I’m very glad I did.

See the little blonde girl? That's me! At the mic stand is Brad Shreffler, Orlando ML.

See the little blonde girl? That’s me! At the mic stand is Brad Shreffler, Municipal Liaison for Orlando.

Despite showing up a little late, there was still cake and I got to chat with some fellow writers. It was really nice being able to talk my ideas out for NaNo and hearing others ideas 🙂  And getting a sticker made me happy too. I’ll definitely be hitting some of the other events!

(P.S. There would have been more pictures, but I had got so caught up talking. Luckily my mum was there and took a few pictures for me 🙂 )

cookesOf course all that talk of writing made me hungry, so the fam and I went over to Disney Springs and ate at Cookes Of Dublin. It’s one of our favorite quick service places there and worth checking out if you’ve never been.

Overall, I can say yesterday was an awesome day 🙂

Now cheers to the final prep week for NaNo!

Personality Type Interview: INTJ Rose

interviewBEHOLD! THIS WEEK’S INTERVIEWEE IS A FEMALE INTJ! :O As rare as the Male INFJ, these mythical creatures are hard to find and when you find one…feel lucky! You’ve basically found a unicorn of a human 😀


Name: Rose

Age: Young Teen (13-15 years old)

Personality Type: INTJ

Gender: Female

About me: (LOL WHAT DO I SAY ABOUT MYSELF!?) I am a teenager who lives in Montana, a really cool part of America, where we often see all kinds of wild animals including bears, elk and millions of deer. I enjoy reading, writing, listening to music while writing, writing on my laptop, writing longhand, and basically all kinds of writing…. (Agh, I seriously have no clue what to say here). I am also a fangirl – big-time. I like hanging out with my close friends but strongly dislike social gatherings as a whole. I hate meeting new people although I can do it if I make myself. =)

Me: When taking the test, did you ever receive a result that differs from your personality type now? Or have you always consistently been this type?

Rose: I received answers I didn’t think fit me completely. Although most of the answers were pretty accurate. I took it not that long ago, so I doubt I’ve changed much. I know from the time I was nine or ten to now, my personality has changed a LOT, though.

Do you think your personality type affects your writing at all?

R: Yeah, I can have my characters use cool sarcastic retorts that I come up with. 😛

Do you fit into any of your personality type stereotypes?

R: I’m not sure. Maybe the judging one. I know I tend to be very judging.

How do you handle positive emotions?

R: Emailing or calling my friends, OK, so my FRIEND, with whatever the good news is.

How do you handle negative emotions?

R: Listen to music on my iPod until I cheer up, writing in my journal.

How do you handle stress?

R: I don’t handle it! I HATE stress! I either have a meltdown or go cry or, if feeling particularly controlled, go do something that takes my mind off of it.

How do you deal with confrontation?

R: By staying in control and using sarcasm. If I’m really mad, I’ll yell though.

How do you take compliments?

R: VERY awkwardly. Smile and say thank you and hastily change the subject.

What’s a big misunderstanding about your type?

R: That we’re always perfectly in control of a situation and never get intimidated.

What’s a positive trait of your personality type?

R: We think. We don’t dive into something without practical thought.

What’s a negative trait?

R: We judge. Although I kinda like that in a way. =)

What personality types do you get along with the most?

R: INFP and ENFP. Now the only reason I say that is because I have two good friends with those personality types and we get along really well.

What personality types do you not get along with?

R: I don’t get along that great with my brother, so maybe ESTJ. LOL. Other people with my personality type intimidate me too.

Mind naming some of your hobbies?

R: Reading, writing, fangirling, but only with people I know well, obsessing, talking on the phone with my BFF…idk, my brain isn’t working right.

What are your favorite books?

R: Left Behind, Left Behind the Kids, anything by Louisa May Alcott, almost anything by L.M. Montgomery (including the entire Anne of Green Gables series of which I LOVE the last book), Bible times historical fiction like The Robe and the Big Fisherman, Les Miserables, some books by Charles Dickens, some books by Bodie Thoene, The Cross and the Switchblade, The Shepherd of the Hills, Viking Quest series (ok, so these are books I read as a kid but they’re still fun and made a huge impression on me), and of course my own book I’m working on which I ADORE.

Favorite movies?

R: God’s Not Dead, Courageous, Anne of Green Gables, and old classics

Favorite shows?

R: We don’t have TV, so I watch almost none.

You’re about to battle a dragon. What do you do?

R: Wake up. 😛 OK, so I ready my sword, try to act like I’m not scared in the slightest, and look with cool contempt upon said dragon until he turns and flees.

Do you think you could handle being a character in your own stories?

R: NO WAY.


Be Prepared! NaNoWriMo 2015 is coming upon us.

NaNoWriMo 2015 is near and the time to prepare has come…well okay already started. Hey! Better late than never right?

While planners are plotting and outlining, and pansters are hoping for the best, I’m there somewhere in between.

I typically find myself coming up with a general plot, the characters, and then I start a private Pinterest board for the story. I’ll take the MBTI test for my characters, do a little research, and let it set. Like a word stew, I put it on simmer for the whole month of October and when it comes time to serve…hope that it’ll taste good, er uh, write good?

anigif_enhanced-buzz-9380-1419700491-4Yeah that works.

I also do research on my character’s personality types and anything else I feel that needs my attention on (location, weapons, etc.).  But outside of that, I pretty much let the story flow.

That’s of course just prepping for the writing bit. 😀

I don’t have a job outside of the house *hisses at driver’s test, hisses at uniforms, hisses at schedules* and since I live with my family there, my job is…THE COOK!

cb7dde7854711eb5d17ebe28b169b09aThat means I have to plan the meals for the whole week, cook most of them, and come with desserts occasionally. That also means mother dearest has asked me to plan Thanksgiving and Christmas! I’m a little nervous, obviously excited, and well…honored.

Yes, it’s going to be a little stressful and a lot of hard work, but it’s going to be totally worth it. Of course my family isn’t the kind to just flop something in my lap and make me find for myself, so I will have help along the way.

99ffba45d531a71ea58ac18a7f9604a8What?! I couldn’t find a better gif to explain team work. Do you see those dance moves? Do you see how perfectly in time they are? Are you not amused at Captain Amazing, The Winter Sass, and The Fab!?

I am very amused mortals!

79b5a8ca496ea3cd12c777fdf648dc0aAhem.

Anyway, time to hop off and start planning for Thanksgiving Dinner (and all of November’s meals).

Personality Type Interview: INFP Dreamer

interviewI’m a pretty big fan of the Myers-Briggs Personality Type theory, I’ve been taking the test for my OC’s for a while now. As soon as I learn their type, I research as much as possible on that type and go on YouTube and watch personality type interviews. I have always found the  interviews very helpful and thought it would be fun to do some myself one day.

Recently I asked my friends down at the Christian Teens Together thread on the NaNoWriMo website if they would be up for doing a Personality Type interview…Which of course a good bit of them said yes to 🙂 It has been a lot of fun asking them the questions and reading their answers.

So this is the first of many I’ll be posting through out the weeks to come. I hope you all enjoy reading these interviews 🙂


Name: Anon Dreamer

Age: Older Teen (16-19)

Personality Type: INFP

Gender: Female

Me: When taking the test, did you ever receive a result that differs from your personality type now? Or have you always consistently been this type?

Dreamer: I have not always been this type. I seem to exchange between ESFP and INFP.

Me: Do you think your personality type affects your writing at all?

D: Yes, because of certain aspects of the N and P respectively. Intuition and Perceiving for me are key when observing the world and people around me.

Me: Do you fit into any of your personality type stereotypes?
D: I’m not sure.

Me: How do you handle positive emotions?
D: I’d like to think I handle them fairly. I’m not afraid to show I’m in a good mood.

Me: How do you handle negative emotions?
D: Not so well.

Me: How do you handle stress?
D: Not good. But prayer has been helping me to deal with it, especially the stress that comes without rhyme nor reason.

Me: How do you deal with confrontation?
D: It entirely depends on what I’m confronting.

Me: How do you take compliments?
D: Fair. Yet sometimes I have tendencies to over-think them to the point that I wonder if some of them were genuine compliments.

Me: What’s a big misunderstanding about your type?
That we don’t like people I think, I’m not very well associated with the stereotypes that some people label personalities with.

Me: What’s a positive trait of your personality type?
D: Introvertedness, isn’t a downside; it just means that although we might not thrive on people for the most part, we still need interaction. This is the part where I am typically Extroverted, in that I love being around people, but only for set amounts of time, or depending on who I am with. Intuitive, you can pick up on the more subtler hints on people or situations without needing an entire story, but don’t run away with theories. Feeling, you need emotion, without them you’re a robot. Perceiving, again, you don’t need an entire story. You are able to gain more from something or someone that just what it tells you, this can especially help when you are having conversation, the subtle hints on how a person feels about a subject despite words or tone of voice.

Me: What’s a negative trait?
D: Introvertedness, you can easily become overwhelmed both depending on situation and company. Intuitive, you can discern more information than some people are willing to give, yet you pick up on things, or might remember small details to the point of being creepy. And if you go too far you can run away with a theory that may be entirely opposite the reality. Feeling, you may or may not be at times overwhelmed by emotion(s). Perceiving, also remembering small details to the point of being creepy, when in reality, you just pay attention. But sometimes we may do it unintentionally, especially with conversations or events that we found particularly memorable, whereas the ones we were with may have no recollection of it.

Me: What personality types do you get along with the most?
D: I’m not entirely sure.

Me: What personality types do you not get along with?
D: Not entirely sure.

Me: Mind naming some of your hobbies?
D: Writing (obviously!), drawing, and daydreaming.

Me: What are you favorite books?
D: The Blue Sword, and the Phantom Tollbooth are my two favorites above all. Close third and fourth would be The Horse and His Boy/Voyage of the Dawn Treader, and then Arabian Nights. All these stories have heavily influenced mine.

Me: Favorite movies?
D: Princess Bride, Tron (Original), and Hatari, are the top three.

Me: Favorite shows?
D: Leverage, Fairy Tail (anime!), and a couple others, but those two are what came to mind.

Me: You’re about to battle a dragon. What do you do?
D: This all depends. Am I in Fairy Tail or Final Fantasy?

Me: Do you think you could handle being a character in your own stories?
D: This entirely depends upon which story I’m entering. The first would be awkward at least, a bit of culture shock going back to the 40’s-50’s. The second I wouldn’t handle well, or probably last very long. Thirdly… nope I wouldn’t last there a day.

Other Notes?
D: Don’t rush us. We try to time things so that it works out for when we either speak or act. We sometimes just get overlooked due to not being “outspoken.” Yet even though I am a very loud introvert, it happens because that’s what people do. Just try to acknowledge the fact that we want to add to the conversation or the activity in our own way


Sisterhood of the World Blog Award

c__data_users_defapps_appdata_internetexplorer_temp_saved-images_tumblr_nndz4jmkxt1tegftro1_1280So something really amazing has happened. I was nominated not once…BUT TWICE for an award! *confetti explodes in the air*

Katie and Sarah from the Sister Project and  E.C. Jaeger from In the Character’s Shadow nominated me for a blogging award! I’m very honored and excited 🙂 Now go do me a favor and read their blogs! 😀

Here are the award rules, copied from their blogs:
1. Thank the blogger who nominated you and link to their blog.
2. Answer the questions that the blogger who nominated you has provided.
3. Nominate four other bloggers.
4. Create ten questions for your nominees and notify them of their nomination.

So Katie and Sarah gave me only three, while E.C. gave me the whole load of ten questions 😀 I’ll answer their questions and then give mine 🙂

( If anyone doesn’t understand the concept of this whole award thing, check out this very helpful and detailed explanation.)

I’m fairly new to blogging, but here are four of my favorites that I am nominating:

http://bloom4jesus.blogspot.com/

https://catmooselane.wordpress.com/

http://touchesofeuphoria.blogspot.com/

And now for the questions 😀

Katie and Sarah’s questions:

1. Who inspires you? You can name anyone – someone you know personally, a historical or literary figure, a world leader, a celebrity… absolutely anyone that pops into your head.

There’s a lot of people who do, but I’ll have to go with my mum. She’s such a strong and amazing person and I’m incredibly blessed to have her in my life.

2. What hobby would you like to try with which you have little to no previous experience?

Hmm…I’ve always thought it’d be cool to get into robotics.

3. What book do you recommend we read to discuss in a future Sister Projects blog post?

Perhaps Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland 🙂

Now for E.C.’s questions:

1. If you were stuck forever in any story, which one would you like to be stuck in the most?

LORD OF THE RINGS!!! Oh no! I have to be stuck in Middle Earth, oh my what ever shall I do? :p

2. Of all the villains and antagonists you have ever encountered in any story, which one would you least like to meet in real life?

I’d have to say Maleficent from the Kingdom Keepers series.

3. Who is your favorite animal character? (And no dragons. Only certified members of Kingdom Animalia, please. ;P)

Charlotte from Charlotte’s Web. I honestly think she’s the reason I love spiders so much!

4. If you could ask advice from any fictional character in any story ever, which character would you ask advice from?

I would have to go with my character Neptune. She’s a siren who has been around for a while and would know a lot.

5. Do you prefer plot-driven stories (where there is more focus on what is happening outside the characters) or character-driven stories (where there is more focus on what is happening inside/between the characters)? (Most books fall somewhere in between, but weigh slightly heavier on one or the other side of the scale.)

Plot-driven stories. I feel that character-driven ones can sometimes focus too much on the characters and not enough on the story and what’s going on.

6. What author’s writing style would you most like to emulate in your own writing? (Note: I don’t mean their style of story or characters. I’m talking about the way they talk, the way they bend language to their will.)

Hmm…I guess Tolkien.

7. If you could be the sidekick (best friend, assistant, annoying shadow) of any hero/heroine in any story, which hero/heroine would you choose? (It doesn’t matter if said hero/heroine already has a sidekick or not. You get to replace them. Muahaha.)

I’d love to be Artemis Fowl’s best friend. Not only would he be someone of my intellect, but I’d have a bit of fun reminding him of my fairy knowledge and of the fact that I graduated school before him. We’d probably drive each other nuts and yet keep each other sane all at the same time. 

8. Characters have a tendency to make mistakes or choices that you would never make. If you could change one mistake/choice of one character from any story, what would it be?

That’s a hard one to answer because a lot of the time characters make mistakes for a reason.

Wait…I know what mistake I’d change. Susan’s mistake from the Chronicles of Narnia. You know the one I’m talking about. “I’m grown up now and I love makeup and I don’t need magic no more.” WELL GUESS WHAT SUSAN? NO NARNIA FOR YOU!

9. Which fictional piece of technology would you most like to own?

The Iron Man suit or a Lightsaber. Either would make me very happy.

10. You know that character you really want to be like? Which one quality of his/hers do you desire to emulate most?

To be honest, there’s no character I’d really want to be like. I’m very fond of who I am and I don’t see a reason to want to be someone else. But, I would pick Eowyn from Lord of the Rings. I really love her for her fearlessness. She rode into battle unafraid of pain, suffering, or death.

These questions were a lot of fun to answer, thanks guys! 😀

So here are my questions for the nominees:

1: What’s your favorite color?

2: Last book you read?

3: If you could be any superhero, who would you be and why?

4: Favorite thing about Autumn?

5: Do you own any pets?

6: Twas the Night Before Christmas or The Nightmare Before Christmas?

7: What’s one of your favorite song lyrics?

8: Weirdest nickname you’ve ever been given?

9: What’s something you’re really good at but don’t really talk about?

10: World peace or world domination? 😀


Hope you all enjoyed reading my answers and went and checked out all the awesome blogs mentioned above 🙂

Marvelous Villains: A 3 part series dedicated to Marvel Villains (PART III)

MWHAHAHA- *coughs* *continues to coughs* *starts choking on a lung* *lung is currently coughed up*

Whether you’ve read the comics, watched the movies, or even watched the cartoons, it’s clear to see Marvel doesn’t make flat villains. They’re actual characters with feelings, backstories, families, friends, dreams, and goals. We may not agree with their ways of doing things, but we can at least understand them. Sometimes we may even find ourselves relating to them.

This series of blog posts will take an in-depth look at 3 of my favorite Marvel antagonists.

Now that the intro is taken care of, on with the blog!


Last week we talked about the Winter Soldier and this week we get to talk about LOKI!

I’m not going to lie, I’m very excited to write about the trouble maker. I mean, there’s a reason he’s one of my favorite Marvel Villains.

3e19e7eec18a4bf2e4784980b455b800The adopted son of the Norse god Odin…WRONG PICTURE!

0153f0144879dec9ad295528736c7142

Ah much better picture. Has that “I’m ready to rule the world” feel to it. As I was saying…

The adopted son of the Norse god Odin, Loki is commonly known as the god of Mischief and Magic. With a wave of his hand all sorts of chaos can unleashed. Thor becomes a frog, the seas become unruly, and your hands are where your feet should be. He gives little care to the destruction his games causes and he will do whatever it takes to control Asgard.

Our dear villain has often been tossed around as to what villain he truly is. Some groups claim he’s a poor tortured soul. Some claim he’s not even a villain, just doing what he wants. Some claim he’s just flat out evil. So what is he? Well, let’s take a look at his story.

Let’s go back to when Loki was a wee lad in the land of Jotunheim where the Frost Giants dwell. The Asgardians and the Frost Giants had been in a great war and during one of the battles, Odin slayed Laufey king of the Frost Giants. Remembering his father’s dying words to adopt the son of a fallen enemy, Odin took little Loki back home to Asgard to raise alongside his blood son, Thor.

Loki spent most of his childhood learning the art of magic and being a trickster, which he had a natural liking to. He also spent a good time of his childhood and young adulthood resenting Odin and the Asgardians for favoring Thor over him. Despite this, Loki and Thor had many adventures together and had a fairly good brotherly bond.

tumblr_m729oao4Cl1rnvzfwo1_400As the years went by, Loki felt more and more that he was nothing more than Thor’s shadow. When Thor leads Loki, Sif, and the Warrior Three (Volstagg, Fandral, and Hogun) into a battle against the Frost Giants, despite there being a treaty, Odin punishes Thor for his rash action. He turns his son mortal and unworthy of wielding  Mjolnir (AKA: Mew Mew), and sends him to Midgard.

While Thor is being punished and far away from Asgard, Odin finds this a good time to take a nap and go into the Odinsleep.

fb448775a7b71c5d4306746c13f6e010Bad timing Odin. Bad timing man.

Loki takes this chance to claim the throne as his own. Of course Thor regains his power back and defeats Loki. But the trickster is no quitter and Loki continues to try and take the throne of Asgard! And so our villain is born and he’s more than ready to fill this role.

586cf37fe666df32cf6a1d1545e5e051Unlike Magneto and the Winter Soldier, Loki didn’t really have anything too tragic or awful happen to prompt his behavior. He wasn’t the most loved child and maybe he wasn’t treated the best, but I don’t consider that a logical reason to try and take over Asgard (or Midgard for that matter).

I’m not saying he doesn’t have a reason for doing what he does. Oh, Loki does have a reason.

d248b2f11c5ebe6d0ec86e7e421387d9That reason is he thinks he’s more worthy than Thor to rule Asgard. Just because he is simply better. And why stop at Asgard? Why not Midgard? Why not all the nine realms? From time to time he’ll even remind Thor of how no one loved or care for him. He’ll do whatever it takes to rule, because he wants to.

And that’s exactly why I love him. He’s a trickster, charmer, tongue twister, son of a Frost Giant, who will only want to see your kneeling before him. He has all the elements of the Classic Villain with his own messed up twist.

91ab5ddb160a9235b44b3a3b2837b489Oh and he’s the mother of a six legged horse…

a5d6785f0cff7e95c99c20f28f985e17                                                                         *Awkward*

So this wraps up my Marvelous Villains series and my first ever blog series. I hope you’ve all enjoyed these post!

Now why don’t you comment below who your favorite Marvel villain is! 😀
