    Hi Curious George. Welcome.
    You have a very novelistic style of writing. Looking forward to more about you.

    I landed on the forums after learning about the MBTI, just to see what other seriously logically-inclined people have to say for themselves. I don't browse forums often but all the same I was impressed by how articulate and well-spoken members are. I have a severe problem with not finding the right words with people and "giving up" at the risk of being vapid, but it made me realize that it's possible to be understood by anyone really, as long as one works towards making a real effort to be coherent. Hoping that writing/typing things out more will translate well to speaking better with time.

    My fun fast food story: A couple of friends and I were going through a drive-thru where at the very end, a homeless man asked for money. I can't remember if we gave him change or not, but as we left he said "god bless" and pressing his finger down one nostril, shot a big white gob out the other on the pavement. It was very cool.

    Most of time, when people ask why something terrible happened, they don't realize they are looking for someone to blame.

    I have a few regrets in the past but none as big and not living life. I have concerns about the future but none as big as not being able to live my life in relative comfort.

    I live in the moment acutely aware of nearly everything that touches my consciousness so as to cultivate qualia and avoid being a psychological zombie. I nudge those around me into awareness and empower them when I can. I believe there are powers that be who strive to steal the personal power of the 'speeple' by dumbing them down, hypnotizing them, making them sick and poor, etc and etc.

    I oppose that where I can. Mostly in my own life as at very least, proof of concept.

    I am constantly changing and improving so the answer of how I would like to be is ever evolving. Currently, I am working on my J-ness and would like to be a bit more J.

    Getting rid of things and the brainmeat rewiring associated with that has been a big part of it. As an intuitive, I of course see how that rewiring affects other aspects of my personality and am working to leverage the software upgrades to my full advantage.

    On a side note, Hephaestus is the Greek god who forged the weapons of the gods(He was even in Clash of the Titans). Mayhaps that will help with his seemingly cryptic response seen above.
    Stand clear of the closing doors, please.

    Ok, I don't know if I am late in this whole thing, but I'll put my two cents into it.

    First of all, I didn't read the whole question, because I'm lazy. However, I believe you are asking us about our personality(and no I'm not a fake).

    Anyways, I would describe myself as laissez-faire; I like doing things when I want to do them and I hate being pushed around(as well as pushing others around). Further, I saw you asked, "Why do they all say what they do as they do?" Well, I think you are asking why do we do things on-spot; that's because we work like that best. Planning is not our forte, ideas come at the most random times for me, anyways. I would rather write my thoughts then explain them, because I'll most likely screw up. Or, at least write it before speaking, so I keep my thoughts together.

    In addition, I love learning new things, especially random, somewhat useless information(don't know why). You also asked, "Are you all authentically representing yourselves for who you really are?" This question really appealed to me, because I often find myself trying to fit in. For some reason, I think my real personality offends or drives away people. However, here I feel more open, because I know people act/think similar to me.

    As for "humorously idiosyncratic" about myself; I tend to have a literal side to me and sarcastic/ironic side to me. For example, I'll see/say something ironic and immediately the 'literal" me will tell me how unrealistic that statement was. I don't know if that makes any sense, but it's frustrating for me. I also criticize myself for everything, but I am impressed pretty easily by others abilities.

    I don't know how to answer the "What is my favorite food" question, because honestly I have no clue. My moral code...well, I'm a Protestant Christian. I do believe in a God and Heaven. So, the Holy Bible is my guide for moral ethics.

    What I find valuable?

    I value loyalty, I've had a few friendships and a found that more than half them weren't true loyalty. The other friendships were torn apart by one of them moving away. I also value trueness to oneself, like being able to accept you for you. For the longest time, I thought I had to change myself (I admit I still change myself) but I'm slowly recovering from that. Lastly, I want relationships (any type) to be in harmony, such as working in tune with each other.

    I'm a Caucasian female, 14 years old.

    I've had a lot of embarrassing stories, pretty much every day. But, probably urinating myself in second grade, is one that'll stay forever (if you want the whole story behind that, you can ask).

    If I've been proven that I did something wrong, I feel horrible. I pretty much start to crumble inside. I'll try my best to make up for it, but I kind of lose function. I don't know why.

    I don't take any meds, because I haven't gone to any therapist or psychologist.

    For emotional state, I teeter on the edge, I can be extremely happy but then out of nowhere be depressed. Although, I don't share my sadness with anybody. I also find myself quite irritated with my father lately.

    And finally, for conspiracy theories, I love them but I don't always necessarily believe them, as for the fake moon landing, I'm not convinced yet.

    Whew, well if there are anymore questions, I'd be happy to answer them. Also, sorry for these horribly written paragraphs.

Some of my stack are in the nootropics category. I'd be curious to find out how others benefit from taking nootopics.
    Not too familiar with nootropics, not a lot of the previous items you mentioned. Are these coming in the form of a single mix or are you popping pills left & right. How effective are they?

    I will have to have his opinions about Obama Texas invasion another time. Heh.
    Here's a video saying the moon landing could not have been faked not based on science and physics but based on what was known of photography. I don't know if your uncle would find it compelling or not. There is strong motivation to fake it but it's not like this wasn't in the works. It's often difficult to talk to people who are impassioned about such things. There are people who could be right about a ton of various things but anything more than 15 seconds of them and I'm hoping an oxygen mask will drop from the ceiling.

From your thoughts there is much learnings to gain about life. But l sometimes wonder, "Why do they all say what they do as they do?" What initiates your thoughts and is it easy or difficult for you to write about them (popular contributors feel free to chime in)? If so, why? If not, why?
    It's easy! Words just spill right out!

    What does communication with other members give you?
    I'm just here for the hot nerds. I dunno what they're saying half the time.

    Are you all authentically representing yourselves for who you really are? Are any of your phonies (reveal yourselves)?
    That wouldn't be for me to judge.

    Could you all share something humorously idiosyncratic about yourselves (perfectionism, slothfulness, sexiness, intemperance, stupidity, etc.)?
    Idealistic, neurotic, paranoid, impulsive, almost-smart bundle of cheer.

    What are your favorite foods i.e. mexican food, pizza, rat turds , etc.?
    Anything that's not a salad. I hate salads.

    What, if anything, prescribes the moral code you live by i.e. religion, nothing, something else, etc.? What are you personal standards of what is valuable and important?
    All things socialist.

    Are you green, blue, polkadot; what is your ethnicity?
    Mostly Spanish and Italian.

    What in your collection of painful experiences have helped you change as a person in a positive way?
    Nothing, I was better without them.

    Do you engage in accountability for your actions and why?
    Nope, too modest.

    What medications are you taking? What is the condition of your emotional well being?
    No medication. Emotional well being is something other people care about.

    It's not easy to talk about things that you're totally clueless about. That's why I don't talk much because I don't know much about anything. The things I know could fit into a pocket sized composition book. Maybe my makeup is I have some sort of deficit because I'm extremely curious but don't seem to understand what I'd like to. I believe in inborn abilities that aren't equally distributed. That being said, I also believe that with the right skills and problem solving methods one should be able to maximize their thinking potential for problem solving, learning, and discovery. Still I fail at making connections easily to facilitate deeper learning. So I take supplements to hopefully optimize my mind hardware. All that seems to due is increase my sensory awareness without elucidating much I'd like to understand. I wrote my avatar and signature in French because the language freaking intrigues me. How could a language have so many letters that make no sound? I'm left admiring something because I don't understand it rather than because I do. I'm tired of being ignorant. I used to watch my friend play the piano. I learned what the keys are for and how they sound. I even learned to copy what he did for playing simple songs. But I can't read music. I feel like a curious monkey that's only good at imitating. It's too bad that curiosity isn't all that's required to figure stuff out. My thinking ability is analogous to plug-and-chug maths problem solving on a calculator. It's all mechanical with elementary reasoning and absolutely no creativity involved. Sure I can decipher abstract shapes and sounds that make up basic language but expressing my thoughts in both written and spoken form is slow mechanical process. Thank God I've learned through relationship with God not to let my emotions dictate my thoughts or I'd lament and bemoan about my woes to an early grave.

    Edit:

    Sometimes you just need to vent.
