PSY 15 – Theories of Personality

June 12, 2012 § Leave a comment

Is a discontinued course at my college.

To my extreme sadness. I really wanted to take it. That’s actually the kind of psychology I want to explore — the scientific/biological basis behind behavior, emotion, and personality. How much is genetic/inherited? How much is formed by the individual? Influenced by the environment? Are there basic “types”? Or are people as varied as snowflakes?

So . . . . needless to say, I have an interest in personalities, personality typing, and personality theories. It’s like this almost contradictory desire because I like to believe that personalities are unbounded and ultimately undefinable yet I have this obsession with categorizing, defining, breaking down into types, trends, etc.

Though I feel like I’m not alone in this obsession with the current trends of “What House would you be Sorted into?” and “What would your daemon be?” and “What would your Homestuck title and land be?” and the like.

So this is just a collection of the many different kinds of personality tests and quizzes I’ve taken. Links are provided if you want to take a crack at them yourself.

The Maine night is dark and noiseless. None of that urban clamor of too many lights and metal and people who’ve forgotten how to live.

New York Rewind

So. First year of college has officially ended. It’s done and over with, dead and long gone. The end has come and all that fabulous shizz. I might do some reflective crap about my first year later but right now, I just want to go over the highlights of the 2.5 day trip to New York five other friends and I embarked upon.

Fantasy + Reality = Dream?

May 2, 2012 § Leave a comment

I’m in of those rare moments where the rushing rapids of my life have temporarily calmed down to a trickling, placid stream so I thought I’d get a few words in before the flooding swells and overflows the banks once more.
