Milk Chocolate

This is the blonde hair, blue eyes, high school quarterback kind of guy. Milk chocolate is undeniably the most popular type of chocolate out there. We all think of the classic Hershey’s bar when craving milk chocolate. This guy is the one every girl wants to date and drools over. They wish he would just pick her to stumble upon and ask her to prom. If you’ve ever seen “She’s All That,” milk chocolate is Freddie Prinze Jr.—the most popular guy in school who we can’t stop staring at. We never break apart just one square of Hershey’s milk chocolate, cause we are left always coming back for more. We all want some of that milky perfection to stroke our lips and never leave.

Dark chocolate is the guy that mom and dad want you to date. According to just about a million different studies, dark…

16 Things You Should Stop Doing To Yourself

Thought Catalog

1. Punishing yourself every time you deviate from a diet. As a smart man on my Twitter feed once said, “Nothing tastes as good as skinny feels. Seriously, skinny feels are fucking delicious.” Have a sense of humor about getting down like Roseanne Barr on a food bender and do better tomorrow.

2. Dwelling on the past. Nothing is ever actually as good or bad as you remember it being. Come back to the future, Marty McFly. We have hi-speed internet here.

3. Hate-reading. Life is short. Read things you actually enjoy.

4. Stalking your ex’s Facebook profile. He will never appear as sad and desperate as he feels inside, K? Besides, this is a waste of your insanity. Go make a painting or cut your ear off. Hell, do both — that’ll show him what he’s missing out on!

5. Making plans you have no intention of keeping. Just…

I Like Your Flaws

this. is just so beautiful

Thought Catalog

I like how you mispronounce words sometimes, how you fumble and stammer and stutter looking for the right ones to say and the right ways to say them. I appreciate that you find language challenging, because it is, because everything manmade is challenging. Including man, including you.

When you sleep on your side, I like to map the constellations between your beauty marks freckles pimples, the minuscule mountains that sprinkle your back. I like the tufts of hair you forgot to shave and the way you smell when you haven’t showered in a while; I like the sleep left in your eyes.

I like the way your skin dies in the middle of the night, how you die from embarrassment the next morning; how you writhe in the snake casing you’ve left behind. I like that you think pillow snowflakes carry more weight than pillow talk; that you think my…

The 5 Important Milestones In Every Relationship

I think a lot of this is applicable for both Elmer and I. Especially the first two. the “Beb, I fart” is actually really funny, but we never had false pretenses about each other, but we did make extra efforts. Now we both go out looking like bums but feeling great. haha.

Thought Catalog

1. “Beb, I fart”

In the beginning of every relationship, you essentially try to be the best version of yourself. You pretend you dress to the nines every single day (“Oh, this little number? I just threw it together in five….hours”), do fun-filled activities, and never fart, burp, poop or experience any other human action that could be perceived as gross. Ugh, it’s so exhausting and one day you will just let the facade slip. One day you will show up to your significant other’s house in a terrible outfit looking like crap and farting all over the place. The day you let your BF/GF see you in an unattractive state is a crucial milestone because it’s basically saying, “Hi! i’m comfortable enough to show you that I’m not a flawless gem. I can look awesome and cute and do all of these great things you will enjoy, but I…

We try so hard to define ourselves within the culture we exist.

It does not seem enough that we try to hack our way at creating a niche, bound by standards and sub-paradigms where we can conform to a degree of ideals we are comfortable with, but we feel are pre-defined or pre-determined by some ultimate force. (An example could be personality types based on our zodiac signs)

We try so hard to conform to the identity of a certain group or a certain coterie or cluster, and yet within that circle we try so hard to emphasize our individuality. We seek to be differnt but find comfort in the familiar.

I guess, the point I’m driving at is that human beings are a bundle of contradictions. We like to stand out. We throw around words like unique or different like it’s the best/worst thing and yet within the circle we create, we strive to be different/the same as everybody else.

I was probably thinking about this when I took a personality test yesterday. I was skimming through my groups on facebook when I saw Regine ‘s post about personalities. Elmer wasn’t going to be home for another hour so I decided to take it.

I took the  Jung personality test here.

Jung Typology sample

This first test looks like this and is a 72 item exam with polar questions. At the end of the quiz, you are asked to put in your age and your gender before you can submit the exam to get the results.

The Carl Jung Typology test was created when he attempted to reconcile the theories of Sigmund Freud and Alfred Adler. He categorized people primarily into types of psychological function

1. The rational (judging functions): thinking and feeling

2. The irrational (perceiving functions): sensing and intuition

Thinking and feeling functions are rational, while sensation and intuition are nonrational. According to Jung, rationality consists of figurative thoughts, feelings or actions with reason — a point of view based on objective value, which is set by practical experience. Nonrationality is not based in reason. Jung notes that elementary facts are also nonrational, not because they are illogical but because, as thoughts, they are not judgments.

INFJ stands for Introverstion, Intuition, Feeling, Judging based on the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator which categorized the 16 personality types based on dichotomies

Extraversion (E) – (I) Introversion
Sensing (S) – (N) Intuition
Thinking (T) – (F) Feeling
Judging (J) – (P) Perception

My friend also posted a link to where the 16 personalities could be described. You can find it here.

Well, I honestly didn’t know what to feel whenI read this. It sounded a lot like me. It also gives a good explanation as to why I decided to take up medicine, which is really just to help other people. It also explains why I don’t want to practice abroad even if I may have the opportunity to do that. I would say this is aboud 93% accurate.

I realized after looking around that this site offered a personality test too,so I decided to take it and see if my results would be the same.

These are what the questions look like. It took me a while to answer this because I had to take moments to reevaluate myself and find an honest answer. I had to think of situations and ask myself how comfortable I would be doing this or that and how I would respond. Compared to the first one, which were mostly exclusive disjunctions, this one gave more leeway with varying degrees of how much you agree or disagree with the statements.

other sample

 As you can see, there are more choices and there is a bigger spectrum which, I think, enables people to be properly categorized considering these are answerable by degrees and can lead to a better more defined personality identification. This test has 84 questions and majority of them are the same as the first exam I took. I would say, that this test would be more accurate than the first one I took.

Based on this exam, I am an INTJ

I guess I can say I was pleased both my personalities are rare. I guess I have always been called a bookworm and a lot of people can attest to that, so can my kindle which currently holds 2,124 books (none of them are in the twilight-hunger games-50 shades of grey teen to young adult paper back porn genre).

If you only read the books that everyone else is reading, you can only think what everyone else is thinking.” ― Haruki Murakami, Norwegian Wood

A lot of this is true about me too. Around 95% accurate.

But the main thing about why I am pleased with both results is because both career paths for the 2 personalities are related to science and the healthcare profession. Sometimes I take these small things to be a sign for something bigger.
