You are exceptional and unique. Your quest in life is to identify exactly who you are and why you’re here. What’s important to you is the journey of self discovery, determining who you are today is not the same as who you’ll be tomorrow.
You resist being categorized and are quick to question any social standard that you sense someone imposing on you. Stereotypical gender roles always interest you and, in your mind, connect to issues that most other people would never even consider related.
You can “connect” with any individual person and practically read their mind, but you have a natural tendency to match your actions to the expectations you read from their mind and yearn for company that lets you truly, naturally be yourself. You struggle between letting yourself naturally match the sentiment of the group (which feels like putting on a façade) or letting your individuality shine, which may allow people to see how different you are.
You are particularly accepting of other people and have a special talent for seeing people’s true selves instinctively. It takes time for you to trust your gut instinct about people because even you don’t believe that someone could be so right about another person’s nature so quickly. This intuitive sense about what people are thinking is your special talent. You may think it is available to everyone and that others just ignore it, but in truth others could never develop the skill to the level which comes naturally to you.
You focus more on nurturing other’s self esteem than any other type. As a result of this naturally caring nature, people often turn to you for moral support.
To you everything happens on a personal level. Your friends come to you for advice because they know that you’ll love them for who they are and put yourself in their shoes to look at the world. Your advice, although varied in delivery, usually boils down to “be true to yourself” and “listen to your heart.” You exude this quality so strongly that even strangers will sometimes spontaneously begin confiding their deepest secrets in you.
The flipside of this may impact your work. When people raise valid issues or genuinely just have a different opinion you are likely to interpret some level of personal attack into an honestly impersonal statement (although probably from someone you wouldn’t have natural rapport with anyway).
You may wish that other people’s judgments and actions didn’t affect your self-conception so much. When other people might brush off a disappointed expression from a coworker, it is likely to dominate your thoughts until you’re sure the situation has been repaired.
You are by far the most talented of all types at reading nonverbal cues. In your admirable attempts to convey a message diplomatically, those who aren’t sensitive to inflection, tone, insinuations or body language sometimes simply do not get your message because they only receive the verbal half of what you said.
In the same way that you’re the best at reading nonverbal cues, you’re also the best at sending them. When you speak they miss the nonverbal half of your message, then they speak and transmit twice the message (verbal + nonverbal) which often gives away more than they intended but is sometimes carelessly inaccurate since they don’t send nonverbal cues as well as you do. When you’re tempted to assign bias based on someone’s tone or other nonverbal cues it is wise to have them restate what they said and see if ignoring the careless, unintentional nonverbal half of their message lets their true meaning through.
You want nothing more than for there to be peace and harmony in the world, and your actions clearly reflect that vision.
While you can instantly tell what’s on someone else’s mind, you can sometimes be confused yourself when it comes to the mixture of your own emotions.
In school you were an excellent student, the teacher’s pet. More than the satisfaction of learning, you enjoyed pleasing your instructors with your hard work and thoughtfulness and delighted in the personal praise they gave you in return. You got to know your instructors on a personal level and may have even kept in touch with certain of them after moving on.
You have natural teaching and leadership abilities. Your communication is clear and eloquent. You can be decisive and visionary while maintaining a supportive atmosphere and camaraderie among your subordinates.
As a parent you are very supportive and start educating your child early according to your values. Your children know exactly where you stand and what is expected of them. You overflow with positivity when your child sticks to the program, and reflect any negative behavior directly on yourself and the quality of your parenting. Your focus is making sure that your child has a strong self-image and high self-esteem. More than other parents it is important for you to be friends with your children.
You are more philosophical than most and passionately discuss ethics and justice more than other types. It is when ethical issues come up in conversation that you most strongly sense that you are fundamentally different from other people. You become visually emotionally focused when these issues arise, while others easily laugh them off and switch topics to something trivial. To you, it seems that everyone should be passionate about ending racism, sexism and all the other –isms out there.
You go by the book and are suspicious of anyone suggesting that rules or laws should be ignored. You think constantly about improving laws, and see that at a major avenue for advancing social change because you see legislation and rule creation as the consensus opinion of the group working together. For you the focus is seeing everyone working together in harmony.
Your life has meaning, your life is significant. You think all people should spend more time thinking about who they are and what their purpose in life is.
hahaha… think I haven’t written for a long long time…
Anyway, went podcast lesson today. Interesting concept, but personally still prefer blogging. Can go around in circles with virtually nothing to say, but that’s a bit harder in podcasting. And, I don’t particularly love the sound of my voice… haha… so I think I will be remaining anonymous a little more 😉
Went boardwalk again just now… nice scenery, but it was drizzling??? Suddenly, I am reminded of why I enjoy going there… nice breeze, decent scenery, moderate exercise, fantastic food… only complaint, it’s out of the way, unless you area already going to changi village or pulau ubin. Took a really cute pic… will post in a protected post when I get it… those I know personally, ask me and I may be nice enough to send you the password to view it… haha…
Looking forward to CNY… already, can feel the mood. Red banners everywhere, CNY music everywhere and CNY sales too… 22 days to go….

Another funny math homework piece…
Hmm, this was supposed to be posted exactly 1 week ago, but… erm… well…
Pongal (Tamil: பொங்கல்) is a Hindu festival to give thanks for the harvest. Pongal in Tamil means ‘boiling over’. Traditionally celebrated at harvest time, it is a celebration of the prosperity associated with the event.
Pongal is celebrated by all people in the South Indian state of Tamil Nadu as well as Tamils worldwide, including Sri Lanka, Malaysia and Singapore.
Started our trip with a special treat! (Left to Right: Winter Delight, Banana Boat and Falooda)
What’s the boy doing?
Oh I see…
What’s he looking at? (No idea…)
Very cute right?
Darn… why Kanga? Was hoping for Pooh… or Piglet…
You are a very calm and contemplative person. Others are drawn to your peaceful, nurturing nature.
I don’t like green??? I like blue more…
Never really believed in them, but my “stumble!” popped up with this site, so tried it out. Any comments? hahahahaha…
You took some reflective time to remove yourself from the stresses of the world. You thought about where you had come from, and reviewed your life. This time alone allowed you to retreat and enjoy the stillness. What you were looking for was a lot closer that n you thought. You overlooked something important and this new perspective eradicated the funk that you were in.
Present: Pierced Heart
This is a time of great joy as you feel deeply in love. You feel inspired and there’s a lightness in your step. Devoted and admired, it feels like you are floating inth eair. But keep your feet on the ground, because this temporary time of infatuation will come to pass and you’ll have to relearn what it means to truly share a part of yourself with another.
You have a firm foundation for the future, as all that hard work is about to pay off. Restraints that have troubled you in the past will vanish. Although you might still feel trapped, very soon you’ll be able to break free. Your achievements are well deserved and you’ll be able to enjoye your success. Just don’t rest on your laurels for too long.
