For most of my life I have felt uncategorised, lonely and misunderstood. At school I stuck to outskirts of the party, desperate to make an impact, or just accepted my unsociable nature and stayed in my room. I made myself believe I was destined to live a life of solitude. That I had no voice. This year I discovered a reason for all that. I'm a logician.
Don't get me wrong. This ain't no cult or religion. It's a study and science. It's not my bible, but a guide. To my brain. I read the profile and it was like reading a book about me.
There is nothing more important to me than the truth. The real, moral truth at the root of every idea, action or tradition. It is the foundation of logic and determines my every action.
For example. I don't buy people Christmas presents. Because it was an idea invented by a marketing person to sell shit no one needs, to people who don't need it and provides temporary, hollow joy for people who are fundamentally unfulfilled for the benefit the rich elite in order to spin the wheel of capitalism.
Don't get me started...
Logicians make up "only three percent of the population", so it's no wonder I left school feeling misunderstood with no friends.
3% of the population
Least religious personality type
A logician's mindset is focused on their 'logic'. But how does one's logic get determined? Through one's experiences. Which early on mostly consist of interactions with other (generally older) people and passing them through a filter of one's personality.
Among family, I joke about having no friends, but honestly, I wouldn't have it any other way. For me, a person's feelings is of secondary importance to their knowledge and ideas. Needless to say - I can truly count my friends on one hand. Even as I write this, it all seems so obvious. But before I discovered there was a way to define a 'person like me', it was all a huge lonely mess.
I put the emphasis on being 'lonely' because we live in a society where extraversion is the ever increasing norm. With Populism as the result. It's here to stay and I believe I speak for all the world's introverts when I say: some ideas are best kept as ideas.
Take the test!
I was just as sceptical when I got messaged the test with the attached caption: "oooo Jack do the test! It's really fun and interesting!" It's easy to immediately place it into the category of 'hocus-pocus' or 'left-field', but unlike one's horoscope this isn't designed to manipulate you, but assist you.
If you haven't taken the test yet. I would really recommend doing so. It's completely changed my outlook on life for the better and I would hope that it brings you the same progress.
Let me know in the comments what personality you are and I would love to hear about how it helps you in your life.
