What kind of person are you?

India
December 19, 2009 9:56am CST
Some people are very cool and calm and don't get carried away with good or bad incidents easily. Some people are very sensitive, they can't even bear the smallest criticism about them. They brood over the criticism for longer periods. They can't even bear their parents scolding them if they do mistakes. Some people can't handle even small stresses in life. some are kind and try to help others a lot. some people lose temper very quickly. Some people are perfectionists. They expect the same from others and hence lose their temper. How about you?

trust me, I tried to do that too. But, it makes me mad sometimes, even more. So, I might try to find a peaceful way to express it, and not gonna hurt anyone or me. I just want to relief the unpleasantry inside of me, sometimes. It might help a little.

Hmm, Good question here. I don't even know I am here. I don't have temper sometimes, and I don't like to spend too much money, or waste money. Sometimes, financial difficulties give me a lot of stress lately, and I lost my temper pretty easily. I don't mind people criticize me, and I would accept it. But, bad criticism makes me mad and unjustice toward many situations.

i always have a good state of mind,and face stress easily.but if met sth. against principle or messed up could make me mad and angry. i don't believe someone is bad,if i can help him i will try my best,but if you lied to me,i won't believe you anymore. that's myself, a little cold when face principles,very warm when a good man need help.like honesty\simplicity\humour\life loving.

You can categorize me as a perfectionist. By perfectionist, I mean that I like to have things done in the way I think is perfect. What is perfect for me may not be so for another person, but I do my best in whatever I venture, sometimes spending a lot of time on some trivial issues. Due to this characteristic, I tend to lose my patience and cool. I try not to, but at times I go overboard. Most times, I am not wrong but I wish I could have dealt things in a better way. Wish me luck when it comes to sticky situations for I really need it, Vijayanth.

By the way, I cannot be harsh or tough on anyone. I always feel for others, be it the good, bad or the ugly. I give others a chance always to improve and better themselves and stress does not deter me at all. I face challenges with boldness and courage and I like to uphold the truth. There is a soft corner in my heart for the downtrodden, weak, the hungry and the sick.

You are having lots of good qualities in you shobha. I respect you for these qualities. True perfection standards differ with different persons. A small girl imagining herself as a queen living in palace transforming into a respectful woman who can bear the mistakes of others and wish for their good. And that is life, is it not? My wishes are always for you shobha.

I am very emotionally sensitive person and get hurt very easily... But, at the same time I am calm even in the most tense situations, and I do seem to have a sharp tongue and relative amount of arrogance, which I am trying to overcome, but my habit lets me down a couple of times. I can't handle criticism, but sure do try my best to listen to it. I may react instantly to criticism, but later I sit down quietly and introspect where have I been wrong, and what can I do to improve myself. I am short tempered also, and I am a perfectionist, and but now I have stopped expecting others to be perfect, which I used to in the past, but sure, I do expect a lot of positivity from others.... even though I know, I have to expect myself to be perfect first, and not expect anything from others. Well, all of us are human, and we must work towards improving ourselves to perfection... :-)

I think every one is upset when people criticize them even if it is a healthy one. Your responses indicate you are a perfectionist. You are such a nice boy, but why this cobra name, just wondering..

Well, when I chose this name, I was just new to the internet world and I was only 23. So, being a fan of Sylvester Stallone, I chose one his names in a movie. Nothing else. But my latest pen name is Drunken Mystic... And this will be my alternative name. But I can't change it here I guess.. I will check if we can have a profile name.

hi vijay, your discussions! well i am kinda weird, i am a sensitive guy but i don't open to people i don't know well, and those who know me well i value them quite much, i am like a ball hardcore from outside let no one catch my emotions type but am also soft from the inside, it is not that what others say just strike my outer surface and bounce of, those things matters to me but people who know me well they can actually have a glimpse of the soft core i mean judge my state by my emotions, i can't hide them away from them, i just don't disclose my feelings to anyone who doesn't know me.. it is kinda weird...i am also quick tempered at times and don't take everything lightly if others intend to be harsh to me but i don't get angry if someone criticizes for my own good, i need pressure valves to release pressure sometimes but there are times these pressure valves get blocked and can blow with a big blast!.. well i don't like that side of me, i only get ashamed and feel guilty later, i have been very angry at times and just scream it to their face.. i need to release my emotions in small parts and not let them build and accumulate inside of me and they start tormenting me, i can't let it all stay inside of me... so i let go of them, just holding them back and acting cool isn't the thing for me... whoa pretty much to discuss over, have a nice day vijay:)

Well, I am still learning about myself. I am cool and collected at times, not always. I am extremely sensitive almost always. Yes, criticism does affect me, but depends upon the level of respect I give to the person who criticises. If I have no respect for the person who criticises, I surely make them known why I think they are not qualified enough to keep on disbursing such critical remarks. Stress is something that gets to me almost always so I avoid it at all costs. I think I am not extraordinarily kind, or extraordinarily helpful. Lets just say, I have been lucky, I found some people who have been kinder and helpful to me, in situations I would not have been. I lose my temper only when my personal rights are infringed, or my security is jeopardized. Perfectionist, I am not. If I were, the stress of imperfection around me would have put my large portrait on wall with a nice (sandal)wooden garland that smells more of dust than anything else. I dont think I expect much from others, other than their understanding.

so you are a very sensitive person, should I need to watch my words? hahaha.vandana, every one is affected by criticism. You are not alone in this. Some may get over it quickly and others can't. I am sure you maintain perfection in important matters.

Hello,my friend.:-) I really can't you specifics of what kind of a person I am. However, I do feel that there are certain dominant characters I do possess. I am in a way sensitive, not of the criticism but when I'm not given a fair treatment.Like when you call me names and swear at me. I really can't stand that! I am OC(Obsessive Compulsive) which I hate sometimes. I can't truly bear the sight of any disorganized or filthy things. I can't resist my impulse to clean it or fix it... I am truly patient. I don't give up in a given task or situation easily and I am not afraid to try and try until all possible means to triumph have been exhausted.It is the the reason why even in my relationship, no matter how bad looking it was, I'm always believing that things will change and I should be patient doing my good part to see it finally change for the better. My friends do tell me that I have a kind heart and a good person. Well, it is their opinion, not mine.:-) Have a great day, my friend.;-)

I am normally a patient person but if someone breathes down my neck and keep saying something or the other, I get irritated and nervous.I lack the coolness to handle this.I am very tolerant and do not have too many expectations; I will be happy with whatever is there are home but when people are after me I get impatient.I am not a perfectionist with others but with what I do ,I have certain standards for myself.

Hi Vijayanths, you discussion was really intererting that's why i found it and try to give my response. Well, I'm just a simple person who love to share opinion, share my idea to others and give hand to other people who needs help. Then sometimes when other people do not find it good with my thoughts. I do not get easly mad and still put calm emotion. In short i do have a long patience emotion and in addition you can also trust me in times of keeping a secret. Then i also forgot to say that i'm a friendly one.

i know exactly what you are talking about some people are just much more easy going and others would soon to bite your head off rather than look at it. i believe that people who loose their temper very easily could possibly have a lot of pressure built up inside and that enables them to relinquish it when they go off. i have days where nothing really upsets me too much and then there are days where i just get stressed but i don't loose my temper i can take constructive criticism and i know that there are people out there who can not i believe if the person actually thinks you are trying to help them instead of being rude then they would be more likely not to take it as a personal attack. i don't really know how to comment on the help others some people will go out of there way others would'nt lift a finger that is entirely just the person maybe it's hereditary or maybe some people have always been treated a certain way and have a good self esteem and feel confident and grateful with advantage where others may or may not be they do not have no desire or motivation. thank god i am not a perfectionist i have nothing against a perfectionist but i believe there is always room for improvement and i am not going to kill myself trying to make everything entirely perfect.

When you mature in your thoughts you can take things easier. I think in some matters we can maintain perfection and in other matters not so important.this is my opinion Maryjayo9.

Hi vijayanths, I'll admit I'm a very sensitive person and I don't handle stress well at all, there are times where I handle it better than other times though. I can take some criticism but I don't like it, however I'd rather someone be perfectly honest with me than sugar coat it, especially if I'll only find out the truth at another point in time. When I was younger I use to have some horrible temper tantrums but now that I'm 24 I no longer do that, thank god, if I did something would seriously be wrong with me. I can be very stubborn which is part of being a Taurus, I know many Taurus' are quite stubborn. I honestly love to help people out, I love making a different in other peoples lives or making a difference in general even if it has to do with the environment or something else. I'm also a huge neat freak, I have to clean my apartment some every single day, I can't stand mess at all, clothes need to be hung up, shoes need to be near the door, dishes need to be done before bed because I hate waking up to dishes in the sink or the dishwasher. When I grew up I was taught that things needed to get done and that's how I am today.

Hi there, Everyone is extremely different and unique from each other, but still it is a good thing if everyone knows how to control his/her temper. Anyway, I am a kind of person who practice and believe that "patience is a virtue". I dislike people who are judgmental, full of criticism to others, arrogant, hot-tempered, and very insensitive. While, I salute those people who are sensitive to others feelings, open-minded, respect others beliefs and opinion, knows how to control his/her temper, and above all a God-fearing person.
