It's supposed to be about me. :roll: Pretty much, she wants an answer to "who are you?"

Yeah.

Your teacher wants an answer to "Who are you?" ?

...I'd tell her to drop the New Age philosophies and get on to something abit(alot) more practical. (That must be why any talk about putting me in public school was quickly laughed off by my parents...)

:lol:

My problem with it was more: 1, I'd consider it a invasion of privacy. None of her business. 2, she wants a short, comprehensive answer to the question. Like that would happen.

In other words, I'm behaving like most INTP's I've seen. :roll:

Hmm...

"SigInt's answer to 'Who am I?'"

-----------------------------------------

"I am - *kids, brace yourselves - teacher, I think you better sit down.
Ahem. Anyway - I am - the reincarnation of Michelangelo!"

*cue pulling out large statuette of Moses as startled students gape in shock and teacher faints*

I'm not that crazy, thank you very much. :lol:

Here's a list of conversational flaws we tend towards taken from an INTP discussion-I listed them, in case you're wondering.
I. Not talking.
II. Ignoring anyone who attempts to engage me in small talk.
III. If there's a debate over something, people will ask my opinion and I won't tell them anything because don't believe I've studied the situation enough. Maybe I should just tell them "insufficient data for a meaningful answer."
IV. Automatically using most of my vocabulary, only to get blank stares from other students.

Ah.

Well you know, that could be equally well applied to a shy person who's INTP - ISFP - INTJ - or whatever- that is just too shy to communicate.

I. Not talking. Check. Too shy to initiate a conversation or get into one.
II. Ignoring anyone who attempts to engage me in small talk.. Check. Too shy to respond.
III. If there's a debate over something, people will ask my opinion and I won't tell them anything because don't believe I've studied the situation enough. Maybe I should just tell them "insufficient data for a meaningful answer."
Check - sort of. A shy person may very well have a definitive opinion, but is too shy to share it.
IV. Automatically using most of my vocabulary, only to get blank stares from other students.
No - a shy person won't use any of their vocabulary - except maybe "Um" "Hi" "Yeah" "No" "Uh-huh"...

...now why did I just bring that up? I really have no idea. :?

:lol: Trust me, we weren't engaging in these merely out of shyness. Small talk tends to be on the list of hated things. Like when I have to listen to my mom talk about how her relatives who I've never met did this or that....

When my mom talks about her relatives it's usually in reference to something bad they're accusing me and my siblings of doing. :)
Tends to make the conversation a bit more interesting.

Does it help to be blunt?

I hate small talk... My dad's two favorite questions are:

"How has your day been?"

Me: Either "Fine" or "Same"

And his second favorite is:

"Did you sleep good?"

"Fine"

Fine and same is a good way to obliterate any further questions and/or answers.

With my mom? She would have no idea why I didn't like it.

Plus, we get in trouble for being blunt (honest). :(

If taking control of the conversation was possible, you could -
no, your Mom probably wouldn't allow that, right?

Wrong answer. Allow me to correct you:

"Dad, it's 'Did you sleep well?', not good. And yes, I slept well."

...you'd probably not be sleeping well for a few nights if you told him that, though...

I correct my mom on that.

Most people who ask those types of questions don't expect a serious answer. Thus, it can be interesting to watch their reactions when given one. :twisted:

Yeah, that is fun. :P Although - we were specifically instructed to only say "Fine, thank you." or "Yes, I'm doing well." if asked - to avoid such "incidents".

Darn. :twisted:

"Well, not so good. I was in a car accident on Friday and my mother died yesterday and my knee hurts and I've got a terrible headache right now and this Coke is pretty tasteless..."

"Ohh - I'm glad you asked! Listen buddy, I'm gonna take issue with the way you painted this house!"
