29, single and currently jobless; yet loving it. It was the “loving it “part that scared me most in life. There was nothing, not a single thing that could take me towards sorrow and keep me there. I am not saying nothing touches me. I am emotional as hell. I cry and I laugh when it’s needed, sometime do the exact opposite of what is expected, like laughing at funeral. Well I think that is a mental disorder, but let’s put that in a box and move on to the nightmare.
I can’t call myself lazy because I have to (absolutely have to) be doing something, reading, writing or watching anything. My attention span can be compared to a guppy so I usually multitask. I read 2 books at a time or watch a movie while reading a book. I know that you would be shaking your head in disappointment, but I am too. When it comes to romance I am no better. All the past relationships (let’s not put a number on it to call me a slut) have been similar to my regular life style. But (this is a big but) I am monogamous when it comes to romantic life, which used to surprise me knowing how I multitask. I never cheat and I never break heart, I always make sure the guy believe it’s his idea to move on( some time it is). I was scared of my habits and have tried changing them a million time, but is vain. This was my nightmare. That I would never settle. How can one settle when one can’t have a fixed Idea about life?
I started living with the fact that this is how it is going to be. I would have relationships, but they won’t be forever. I would be heart broken when they are over. But I will get over it in no time, as usual. Professionally I am on right track. Advertising is perfect for my habits; I have to be a multitasker to survive in the industry. But I have to live with the fact that I would never settle and I would never relax. I would always be on the go.
Few days back a friend of mine suggested this test that he took to know which personality type he was. I was curious, I did some research on this and found that, it’s a well known process to distinguish personality types. I decided to give it try for fun expecting it would say “I am awesome “
Answer to my curiosity was the Spontaneous Idealist
Spontaneous Idealists are creative, lively and open-minded persons. They are humorous and dispose of a contagious zest for life. Their enthusiasm and sparkling energy inspires others and sweeps them along. They enjoy being together with other people and often have an uncanny intuition for their motivations and potential.
Spontaneous Idealists are masters of communication and very amusing and gifted entertainers. Fun and variety are guaranteed when they are around. However, they are sometimes somewhat too impulsive in dealing with others and can hurt people without really meaning to do so, due to their direct and sometimes critical nature.
This personality type is a keen and alert observer; they miss nothing which is going on around them. In extreme cases, they tend to be oversensitive and exaggeratedly alert and are inwardly always ready to jump. Life for them is an exciting drama full of emotionality. However, they quickly become bored when things repeat themselves and too much detailed work and care is required. Their creativity, their imaginativeness and their originality become most noticeable when developing new projects and ideas – they then leave the meticulous implementation of the whole to others. On the whole, Spontaneous Idealists attach great value to their inner and outward independence and do not like accepting a subordinate role. They therefore have problems with hierarchies and authorities.
If you have a Spontaneous Idealist as your friend, you will never be bored; with them, you can enjoy life to the full and celebrate the best parties. At the same time, they are warm, sensitive, attentive and always willing to help. If Spontaneous Idealists have just fallen in love, the sky is full of violins and their new partners are showered with attention and affection. This type then bubbles over with charm, tenderness and imagination. But, unfortunately, it soon becomes boring for them once the novelty has worn off. Boring everyday life in a partnership is not for them so that many Spontaneous Idealists slip from one affair into another. However, should the partner manage to keep their curiosity alive and not let routine and familiarity gain the upper hand, Spontaneous Idealists can be inspiring and loving partners.
I have marked the important part in the definition bold. Sounds familiar? Yes they named my night mare as my personality and it’s the spontaneous idealist.
So now – 29, spontaneous idealist and Loving it!!
