MBTI Relatable Pick-Up Lines: The Introverts

Few days ago, I’ve done the part of extroverts and their possible quotes. Now, these are the lines of their counterparts, the introverts.

INFJ: I don’t mind the existence of bad people since what bothers me are the fake ones.

You can be a serial killer and befriend INFJ as long as you don’t hide your sinful job behind a nice flamboyant mask of a religious and respectful individual. Seriously, don’t be fake people if you are friends of INFJ. They madly hate it.

INTJ: Am I right? Or are you wrong?

Once it comes to debate, there will be two possibilities: they roast you with tons of facts that they have prepared along with some back-ups and predictions of five possibilities ahead or they will just play it cool and ridicule you because they assume that you are not worthy to debate them.

INTP: You know that I was part of the science club before later joined school karate team and finally ended up here, in the movie club.

Just one thing about INTP, they sometimes don’t know where they go. They basically lost in their own interests over and over. “Did I join that martial arts competition? Don’t remember.”

ISTP: There is no way that we can’t fix this device. Get my toolbox.

To elaborate, MacGyver himself is an ISTP and it is true that most of them are adept in using various kind of tools and somehow born with a high curiosity towards something related to creating, fixing, and modifying stuffs in the sense of inventing or repairing devices or gadgets.

ISFJ: Are you okay? Don’t mind me, I am fine. Let me take care of your wound.

Imagine a car accident in where an ISFJ broke his leg while the other person got a small cut caused by a piece of glasses. The first thing comes up from his mouth will be the bold line above.

ISTJ: My experience says that pointless arguments are caused by lack of factual data.

Personal experience and external facts are mandatory to them as if both are their main weapons. They demand precision and would never allow themselves committing the same mistakes. Shortly, they load their heads with factual and reasonable theories before they shoot their mouths.

INFP: I am silent not because I don’t care. I observe and relate what you feel. What you need is to be listened, though.

INFP always a good listener to everyone not only to the dear ones but also even to stranger. Problem is, people think they don’t listen because of their silence. They do, they even understand.

ISFP: I prefer to have group chat or group call  in my cozy room than attending a party.

Anti social yet craves for social interactions? It must be ISFP. They actually are good at communicating but they sometimes get nervous when they are involved in a too intense social situation which requires too much effort in interactions.

Well, that’s all folks for now. Another fiction is coming soon.

MBTI Relatable Pick-Up Lines: The Extroverts

Well, it’s been a month of slumber, more or less. I am back with MBTI stuffs for awhile before another fiction comes up.

You might have ever wondered what type someone belongs to based on what he or she says or writes. Here are pick-up lines that might be related to particular MBTIs.

ENFP: I was thinking of black marshmallows that will turn into rainbow when I roast it. Sorry, what did you say? LOOK! AN AFRO GUY WITH HIS AFRO DOG!

They just unconsciously and continuously distracted either by what surrounds them, or even by their own thoughts. If you are afraid of sudden changes of topics during conversation or random urges during a trip, you’d better off.

ENTP: I didn’t argue. I explained my point of view and my ideas about changing the world.

Guys, we don’t mean to be offensive or sounds like an asshole when talking. We don’t argue. It is just the way we explain our overwhelmed ideas. More, pardon the jumpy changes of topics as well.

Sincerely,

An ENTP

ESTP: What? Sky Diving? Challenge Accepted!

They risk their lives for challenges because they crave for it and they literally enjoy the adrenaline rush. So, if you find someone rides all extreme rides without exception in a theme park over and over, maybe that person is an ESTP.

ESFP: We gotta make this project fun no matter how.

To make everything entertaining and fun is priority no matter how serious the situation is. Having them around will surely cheers up everyone except INTJ and ISTJ in serious mode.

ESFJ: Your door was open and what’s inside was a mess so I cleaned it up for you.

  1. That’s not actually a mess. That’s probably how that person arranges his or her stuffs.
  2. They will argue and say that you are not being thankful for saying point number 1. Sigh ESFJ.
  3. You will say thanks after all, so don’t think of saying point number 1. Keep it for yourself to avoid number 2.

P.S. : Mom’s knows best.

ENFJ: It is such a pleasure to help. Don’t mention, really.

They will always try to find a way in helping others and fight for everyone’s justice. They literally find happiness in helping others and seeing others happiness like ESFJ does. The difference perhaps they seldom force their methods on helping others. I present you the heroic protagonist, ENFJ.

ESTJ: This isn’t right. You know it should follow this given steps like it has been written on the manual!

These guys are some of the most obedient types among the 16. The combination of their dominant extroverted thinking and introverted sensing makes them natural rule enforcer and manual books followers. They won’t say a thing if they don’t have enough factual info about an issue.

ENTJ: I am the rules. Enough said.

Either you do it their way, or you go away. Enough said.

 

The introverts will follows on the next post.

ENxP: With a Little Help From Inferiority

None of ENTPs or ENFPs are well structured and highly organized. If they are, there must be something misplaced in their head and it won’t last for long. When I wrote ‘there must be something misplaced…’, I didn’t try to throw something figurative. In fact, it is their Si climbs up to the top of the stack, helping the Ne or even more surprising, replacing it temporarily.

As I said, it is not permanent that the Si dominates or at least gets along well with the dominant function. Thus, it is impossible for both ENTP and ENFP to use their introverted sensing (Si) as good and as far as ISFJ, ISTJ or ESFJ. We, ENxPs, might feel a sudden urge of organized pattern of life, or disturbing insecurity of being so random and unplanned but we will get back to thoughtful yet lazy-random beings not so long after we encounter something intriguing, forgetting the chance of being more organized. Shortly, it needs a very intense struggle to be organized and well-scheduled for ENxP.

Then what’s that Si for if we cannot utilize it as good as the master of introverted sensing a.k.a. The ISFJ and ISTJ?

Our Si is inferior. If I may use the analogy of weapon mastery, the Si is a shield and as I have mentioned in another post related to MBTI in MMORPG, none of ENTP or ENFP are natural shield wielders. ENTPs are Rogue assassin while ENFPs are hunters and huntress. They are elusively agile and having huge shield with them will just halt their mobility. Their shield meant to be something handy and thus, having their main weapon as one of the parrying tools will be more effective than having a tower shield. Before getting to far with my geeky video game analogy, let’s just say that the Si of ENxPs is just their ability to block and not necessarily their skill to utilize shield. ISFJ and ISTJ may utilize their Si as deadly weapon while for ENTP and ENFP, it is just a defense mechanism that they cannot rely on solely. Combining the extroverted intuition (Ne) of ENxP with their Si is the best way to utilize the inferior function. Here are some examples if you are ENTP or ENFP:

  1. You may not good at organizing stuff or doing practical housework things, but making it interesting by thinking of those works as daily different challenges that you must accomplish will make it more interesting. Set different target everyday.
  2. Your Ne allows you to grasp and expand the idea that you obtain from the outer world while you can utilize your Si to limit it and gain some helpful experience from it.
  3. Another perk of combining the dominant Ne and inferior Si is to learn from the experience of other people. A bad experience of someone that was told to you will build a mentality within you that you won’t fall into the same pit as he did.

See? It does not mean the inferior Si is useless. you can always use your weakness to support your strength. Anyway, there is nothing wrong for being so random. We are highly thoughtful, and more than that, natural brainstormers, though.

P.S.: Still no added-pictures on this post.

The Twin Types Pick-Up Lines

Remember how MBTI was built based on a stack of cognitive functions? There are 16 types and each of them have both twin and alter-ego. The twins, are the type with the same dominant and inferior functions while the alter-egos, or the shadows, are the types which oppose each other. Forget the shadow functions for now because I would like to tell you about the twin types.  The write-up below is a set of illustrations of how the twins interact and show similar traits as if they are friends.

The Ne dominant- Si inferior: ENTP x ENFP  

A: “You know what I think.”

B: “Fuck you. “

*Laughing at any random things that none of the other types understand why it is worth to laugh at*

*Intense laughter forever*

Stay away! You will get so mad or you will be just like them.

The Ni dominant- Se inferior: INTJ x INFJ

A: “This is the best book I’ve ever read.”

B: “I know right. It’s so deep and thought-provoking.”

Ni dominant-types are thoughtful entities. Nothing can stop them discussing conspiracy theory, the endless space and so forth. Remember, they discuss, not talk shit or debate.

The Ti dominant- Fe inferior: INTP x ISTP

A: “How about a teleportation device?”

B: “Sure, with a shape of hovercraft.”

These geeks are just so dreamy. If they could get $1 everytime they lost in their own thought, they could have made that teleportation-hovercraft.

The Fe dominant-Ti Inferior: ENFJ x ESFJ

A: “WE HAVE TO SAVE THE WORLD…”

B: “AND BRING PEACE TO EVERYONE!”

When you’ve been fighting for it all your life
You’ve been struggling to make things right
That’s how a superhero learns to fly… *The Script-Superheroes intensifies*

The Te dominant-Fi inferior: ENTJ x ESTJ

A: “Should it against the law and order, it MUST be stopped.”

B: *Nodded*

They will stop the Ne twins in 3..2..1… Too late, Ne twins have got away safely.

The Fi dominant-Te inferior: INFP x ISFP

A: “It depends on how I feel about it.”

B: “True. If it makes me feel bad, it probably makes others feel the same way.”

Typically, these types will pinch themselves before they do so to others. You’ll have a bad time if these guys are unable to feel pain.

The Se dominant-Ni inferior: ESTP x ESFP

A: “Another ride of roller coaster or a paintball war?”

B: “How about a paintball raid on roller coaster ride?”

Like what Spongebob Squarepants had said: “livin’ like Larry”, that’s how these types enjoy their adventurous life.

 The Si dominant-Ne inferior: ISTJ x ISFJ

A: “Being clumsy and careless is unacceptable.”

B: “Because you don’t make yourself a fool by doing the same mistake, do you?”

Probably the most careful planners among the types. Most people who suffer OCD probably belong to this group. Betray them, you lose them.

See ya!

MBTI: How Each Type Unconsciously Annoys You

After the descriptions of 16 MBTI-based fictional characters and one urge desire to share some possible plots that MARVEL should adapt to the cinematic universe (which is highly impossible), I decided to write another MBTI-related post which is as stereotypical, but somehow true, as usual.



youre-annoying-stop-it

Some couples of weeks ago, I wrote how the types react when they meet, accidentally or purposefully, someone they don’t like. This post will tell you how the types make others hate them. Or in other words: The annoying trait of each type. 

ENTJ: being SO controlling

Once an ENTJ is in charge on leading something, their nature will be awaken and nothing shall run without his supervision and his command. ENTJs are good leaders indeed, but they sometimes force many things to be done JUST by their way.

INTJ: showing no interest on people

Earphones, mobile phone, a couple of freezing eyes and expressionless face are INTJs starter kits especially during the time they spend in crowds. The mobile phone can be replaced by books, video game handheld, magazines, newspapers, or anything that can help them avoiding any possible interaction to other human-beings. This is why most people think INTJs are unfriendly. Well, they are, some of them.

ENTP: having level 0 commitment (Laziness level: over 9000)

I am mocking myself by writing this but this is sadly true. ENTP might be one of some types with the most brilliant ideas and insights. However, to execute the amazing concepts in their mind is something that they always struggle to do. There are three types of ENTPs: The one who is lazy to start, the one who stops not so long after their first day, or the worst: BOTH OF THE TYPES COMBINED. Thus, if someday I stop writing, I probably need someone slapping me very hard and scolding me for being not committed.

INTP: exploring their thoughts and finally getting lost in it most of the time

Being thoughtful is very good but being thoughtful and ignoring everyone is annoying. However, that’s what INTP is very good at: ignoring people by interacting with their own mind. If you’ve watched Inside Out, you might be familiar with Joy, Anger, Disgust, Sadness and Fear. Regarding to my Disney reference and INTP’s ability in getting lost in thought as deep as they wish until they forgot their surrounding, I personally think that INTP is the only type that can directly interact with those emotion-based personas if they were real. 

ENFP: cannot stop talking

ENFPs are people you can talk about anything with, especially if you maintain good friendship with them. However, there is one problem: they find it difficult to stop talking to people they find interesting, friendly, nice, or shortly: their types. ENFPs’ curiosity and their ability to adapt to new topics during conversations are interesting and annoying at the same time. Well, you know, some quiet fellows like the INTJs, ISTJs, or INFJs find ENFPs too chatty.

INFP: cannot decide what they actually want

This includes what to eat, what to have, what to play, what to do to spend holiday, where to go to buy something, and many others. INFPs are amazing listener who often come up with good advice for other people but they often find difficulties in deciding what’s best for them. This trait sometimes becomes annoying since people with this type finally regret their own decision or choice.

ENFJ: very very sensitive

There are two ‘very’ on the subtitle and I mean it. ENFJs, as the others with strong or even dominant Fe, are very considerate and tend to put the needs of others before their own. However, this often makes them to overthink about something they should not even think about, like the mistakes of others, problems that aren’t theirs but they cannot fix, or indifference of others. They will end up blaming themselves which will make the others uneasy.

INFJ: being so quiet (not in the right time)

Similar to INFPs, INFJs are good listener. More than just that, they are very sensible and able to relate the feeling of others quite well. However, some INFJs listen attentively without making appropriate responses. They are very good at calming you down by saying comforting words like: I feel you, everything will be better soon, pain comes before ease, and so forth. However, sometimes you need more than just that. People need their point of view as well as they need to be soothed. Thus, It makes them get an impression of not ready for sharing their advice, thoughts or suggestions.

ESTP: contradicting themselves (e.g. friendly yet insensitive)

Being able to socialize with anyone, even strangers, is one of many traits ESTPs good at. They are known to be very friendly and having them around will surely be fun. However, they tend to focus on having fun and being sociable without considering the situation, the feeling and also the condition around them. Should someone feels bad because of their words or their actions, they will deny that they have done something wrong.

ISTP: thinking hard to improvise everything, making themselves look ungrateful

ISTPs always look for something better. Their happiness won’t last very long unless they get better, or they get the things they have improvised, continuously. This is actually positive trait which will help ISTPs to develop themselves. However, sometimes they overdo it and unconsciously create an impression of ungratefulness.

ESTJ: too dependent on facts and structures

Factual information is ESTJs’ primary need during their time debating, essay writing, or whatever it is. Even if an ESTJ read this write up, (s)he will question me about where in the hell did I gather the data and finally stops reading before (s)he even reaches this part. Being accurately well-informed is very important but ESTJs tend to kill their own creative thinking ability by being so text-book oriented. They will not accept anything that is only based on personal perspective and counter your argument if you cannot justify some facts with it. More than that, some ESTJs are people who will come up with the recording of your voice or the short clip of your video when you (ESTP especially) deny what you have said or done. 

ISTJ: being overly perfectionist

If you have a friend who got 95 out of 100 on a test said that he was disappointed with his result, that annoying smartass is probably an ISTJ. It might sound similar to ISTP but they are different. Let’s say there are two fellows who got the same score (95) on a test. Here is the thing:

ISTP: “I did well and I am happy with this. But after all, I can still improvise to get more next time.”

ISTJ: “My target was 100. This is humiliating.” 

See? Which one is more annoying?

ESFP: avoiding conflict too often

INFPs might hate conflict but they will face it if it is a must while ESFPs will try anything to avoid conflicts and change their focus immediately. This will put them in trouble since in group or society, this trait will be seen as ignorance and irresponsible. More than that, ESFPs will create huge problems by avoiding each of the smaller ones.

ISFP: overly competitive

Supported by their curiosity, passionate and also their elusive nature, ISFPs are very competitive and in the negative sense, they sometimes overdo it by forgetting their real purpose for short-term glory. That’s how it risks themselves. Here’s how it annoys us: there was normal math exam a week ago and today is the announcement, you just want to pass, but this ISFP fella declares his/her victory by getting higher score than you.

ESFJ: thinking they always know what’s best

Mom knows best. Is she? Mostly yes but not all the time, isn’t it?  This is the problem of ESFJs, they try to relate to everyone’s needs and problems and then figuring out what’s best for everyone. Most of the times, it works. But in some cases, being so mother-like is annoying especially if it is combined with temper tantrum and ten pages of speech-like scolding.

ISFJ: overly paranoid= being so gloomy

Let me tell you how it works on ISFJs: they tend to take things personally; they overload themselves with burden of others and also theirs, they repress their feeling. All of these lead to paranoia and insecurity that makes them stressed and looks gloomy during their bad time. Sadly, people who get used to know ISFJs as the protectors, the listeners and also the healers will not tolerate this and assume them as annoyingly gloomy entity.

That’s all. May the father of understanding guide us.

I Wonder what Their Types are: #16 Audrey

Meet the most reliable girl, the chairman of school Red Cross, and one of the most calm human being who always find a pleasant way to overcome any argument among her friends: Audrey.

Well she is not only an amazing medic but also excellent individual who is always ready to help anyone in need whatever the needs are. In some sense, Audrey is similar to May. In fact, they are pretty close to each other and probably that’s why they are similar… Wait a sec… Yes I am pretty sure both will be triggered by indifference, injustice, bully, starvation and so forth. The difference between them is Audrey will remain silent as she work on something to solve the problems while May will cry and keep saying how cruel the world is during her duty on upholding the justice and human rights.

If someone has ever questioned about how reliable Audrey is, imagine this: should she deployed in a battlefield as medic, which she probably does not want to imagine, Audrey will not stop until every single surviving soldier on her side are taken care well. In other words, she is not going to run from her responsibility, once she agrees to do something, she will not stop until it is finished.

One more thing about Audrey is her surprisingly passionate nature. She is the one who’s enthusiastic enough to work with anyone. More than that, she is loyal enough to stay helping and supporting her friends who have as immense enthusiasm as her. She is the protector who dedicates her existence to support everyone.

Well, I am done wandering around, besides, I should avoid Cindy. I saw her sitting in front of Audrey when I passed by. She is weird.

I Wonder what Their Types are: #15 Joachim

I was about to leave the library when I saw him approaching the exit door while carrying a pile of books. I walked quickly to help him with the door for his hands are full with what I finally realized as a half dozen of science books. He thanked me as I opened the door and then walked to the opposite side of mine, to the lab I guess. My mind suddenly opened a random file that consists of information about that guy: Joachim, science geek, factual scientific theories are top priority on every work, breaking rules or abandoning facts are sinful no matter what.

As I walked downstairs, I recognized more about him. Joachim was Greg’s partner during many science projects and competition in the past. Everything changed as Joachim decided to focus more on chemistry and Greg put more interest and passion on physics. They still respect each other, though. Even work together sometimes, though not as often as in the past.

Actually, I know one more reason, stronger one, that divides both geniuses: Joachim is very precise and text-book based perfectionist who fuels himself with tons of theories before he works on something while Greg, you know, he is as dreamy as me and Joachim somehow feels uncomfortable with Greg’s obsession towards science fictions and such things. Shortly, Greg feels that his creative science is strangled while Joachim feels that Greg is too dreamy. Now I think of the way he said ‘thanks’ to me. Joachim was not a guy who talks to everyone yet his thanks to me was something that I sense as his  sensibility to satisfy his moral: someone helped you, you should say thanks. He knows how to respect people but sometimes he is too stiff.

There are some unique rumors I heard about  Joachim the ice-man from some trusted spies. The first is that he regularly feeds a group of stray cats near school. Having them as pets is impossible since he lives on the 7th floor of an apartment building by the downtown. Oh, wow, cats? Not owl?

Second, he is highly addicted to cheese cake from particular cake shop. One of his secret admirer said that Joachim regularly goes to that shop at least twice a week. … Weird, I thought he loves something like black coffee or plain muffin.

Third, he has a very detailed schedule about everything and his life seems running orderly based on that time table. Makes sense.

The last and the weirdest one in my opinion is his habit in randomly helping random people without saying anything. Greg said that Joachim looks so ignorant yet he knows you need help and come without any words and leave once he finishes helping. I didn’t know if he is such kind of vigilante.

Well, he is brilliant after all. I think I should work with him on some of my project sometimes.

I Wonder what Their Types are: #14 Arya

Who’s the genius science geek that adores Hawking, Gates and Einstein? Greg. Who’s female-Mcgyver science geek that designs many things and fix everything? She is in front of us: Arya.

As geeky and dreamy as Greg with more practical-handy skills. I wonder if some fictional characters are real if I look around my schools sometimes and Arya is one of those unreal heroine: A girl who spends more time with toolbox, super computer,  and her customized-bicycle rather than choosing what dress to wear and which party to attend in the weekend. Even on her leisure time, she prefers to spend her time customizing model kits or upgrading her computer in peculiar ways.

Arya’s unusual personality, at least as a girl, influences her friendship. It is no longer a secret that most of her friends are boys with the same hobby or some nerds like Jack or me who constantly imagining fictional tools that will also excite her when we talk about. In some ways, she gets along well with Nick. I think both of them are people who live in the present and put no worry about the future. Another similarity between the two is their curiosity and eagerness to try something new, plus something related to practical science and engineering in Arya’s case. I heard that she is working on a project with Greg. Nick said that Arya tried to tune-up her dad’s old car the other day and she surprisingly succeeded. Well, at least she still has more friends than the other science-geek.

Although not as introverted as Greg, Arya often spends her time alone especially if she is on her serious mode. It happens usually twice a month and we, her friends, understand that on such situation, Arya has an amazing blue print to be designed and won’t be happy to be disturbed. Jack has ever wondered what would happened if Arya was on her period while the urge of creating such prototypes hit her? My answer: She would probably create giant mecha.

I Wonder what Their Types are: #13 Greg

It was actually unusual to see him outdoor at this hour but then I realized that he was probably driven by his inner thought as always and decided to leave his cave: the science lab.

As long as I remember, Greg spends most of his time at school to involve in any kind of activities related to science especially physics and chemistry. He is one loyal fan of Stephen Hawking who lives in the school science lab and regularly visits planetarium at least once in a week. Metaphysics is his biggest interest above everything and contemplating the existence of alien will make his eyes sparkle like a little boy seeing Voltron Giant Commander for the first time. He has tons of discussion about extraterrestrial life, mostly based on Hawking’s theories, that he has developed with his own point of view. Well, it sounds like Greg is so nerdy that he does not have any friends unless other nerds because of his extraordinary complex mind. In fact, he does have friends.

There are not many of us can keep up with him yet almost everyone actually knows him. Some people cannot stand talking to Greg for his abstract and highly imaginative mind. Cindy is the one who mostly argues and debates Greg on his imaginative-modified Hawking’s based and Einstein based concepts. However, some others, especially teachers, see him as an outstanding potential future-scientist with beautiful mind. Greg gets along well with Jack and Iris since he can talk and discuss about everything with those two. He also works well with Arya who is as thoughtful as he is. They often seek for the truth of science and build knowledge together, design some cool blueprints yet abandon most of them later. Wait, those are as geeky and nerdy as him. Let me think of someone else… Right, at least he gets along well with Ace the artists and also Nick the baseball ace.

One thing that Greg’s never realized is that he is very popular among girls but probably he is too busy exploring his own mind to care about such things. For your information, the one who always argues him is actually the biggest fan of him. Who is number two? The most sarcastic girl at school.

I Wonder what Their Types are: #12 Ace

He, as he often did, sat alone under the oak tree behind the school building. The unusual thing about it was that he used to be busy with his camera while relaxing there. At the moment, the camera was replaced by something that I assumed as a sketchbook and a drawing pen, or mechanical pencil? Not sure about that but let me guess… He must be sketching something, more likely something that most people won’t think about as he always did with his unusually stunning photograph of random objects.

His name is Ace, at least that’s how his friends call him, but most teachers call him with his ‘real’ name, Andrew, for Ace, or ACE, is an acronym of his full name which is actually Andrew Carlton Eissenberg. Well, I guess Ace is more than just acronym if I consider his talents, though.

Messy hair, glasses, camera and or sketchbook with drawing kit are his default items to bring everywhere. The camera and those drawing kits seems to be the extensions of his eyes for what he captures and sketches using all of those are extremely stunning that school does not need to hire professionals to run the photography club and arts club. More than that, Ace is also known as an avid traveler who regularly writes on a blog about his travelling experiences. Some friends always ask why he does not want to run a Youtube channel consisting the video logs of his adventure to many places? His answer is always the same: “I don’t think that I am ready with such things.”

That is always his problem: He is not confident enough about being popular and showing off what he has to the wider world. He has  School as his limit for now. At school, no one is unfamiliar with Ace the travel blogger, photographer and artist, but out there, people do not know who is Andrew or Ace for he writes under pseudonym. I remembered how he struggled to introduce his travel blog with his beautiful collections of pictures to everyone at school. First, only his inner circles, then some weirdos who cling around him, Iris is included and has been his biggest supporter I believe, until finally everyone notices him. So, it is just a matter of time until he is ready to go out and find more fans of his work. 

One thing about him, he seems to avoid any big responsibility related to being a chief or leader by any means. I think he feels that being involved in such responsibility will rob his freedom.

I Wonder what Their Types are: #11 Laurel

“She is very quiet.” That’s what everyone said about her at the first time but as one of her close buddy, I know that she actually is a good listener. Her silence does not mean she is ignorant to what happened around her. Once you talk to her you will understand that she notes every words and listens to you attentively, giving such ease to her talk-mates while responding to what they say without trying to dominate. She even listened to my bullshits about coffee the other day. It seems like she does not care at the beginning but when she accept you as her friend, she is the one that works like fireplace. Such calm, much warmth, wow. That’s how it feels talking to her. “Dude, move, it was home run.” The third-baseman poking at my shoulder brought me back to the reality that I was on the baseball match. “HA! WE WON.” I said to him as I walked to the home base.

**

As I reached the home base, I saw her walking slowly to the hall.  Her earphones were on when she stopped by and so they are now. I bet it is guitar instrumental as usual or probably piano or anything that calming and put you at ease. She ever mentioned how she enjoyed listening to video game or movie backsounds when doing something or walking somewhere. Something that brings harmony and calming atmosphere is her preference if it is about music.

Having her earphone almost all the time makes people think she does not want to talk to anyone as much as Helena. But for Helena, earphones on literally mean: do not talk to me. While Laurel is actually listening to music and does not mind if someone initiate conversations. She seems find it difficult to relate why wearing earphone almost all the time is considered as anti-social. She said she is not.  Well, she is not.

One thing that I think we have in common yet it seems to differ us is the way we react to deaths of fictional characters on movies, books or anywhere. I will be extremely sad because of the death of my favorite character but will snap out of it once I find any significance behind the tragedy including the development of the plot of the story. Meanwhile, to Laurel, every death is horrifying no matter how epic it is and how much it helps the plot to be better. She would like to prefer a story to retain its whole squad till the end. However, it does not mean she stops watching. She just stops for a while, being gloomy for some couples of days then continue watching and seeing deaths. Hence, she does not like death yet she keeps watching Game of Thrones and trying to imagine bunch of alternative plots with less death and more epic victories on the behalf of her favorite house: Stark. She even writes it under anonymous pen-name that only some people are allowed to read it. How do I know? Well, I do contribute some ideas. I can say that I am one of her partner in writing such fan fictions. To be honest, she is very excellent in writing… And she needs me to make it more, savage. Eh?

P.S.: She also hates daily routine almost as much as I do.
