I'm the kind of person who is very focused on knowledge. I'm not ridiculous enough to believe I have any answers, but I find the most comfort in organising arguments, making analyses, and drawing conclusions.

I have a habit of discounting what I feel inside, really. I want something I can write down in a logical, reasonable manner, something that isn't just exclusive to my changeable emotions. I guess I feel knowledge has a permanence, even as it constantly evolves and as different experiences afford different views. I can take comfort in the progression, the introduction of new facts, and so forth, and the search for new information and answers to existing questions is endlessly fulfilling for me.

But I guess this is why I'm an intellectual ...

yep, definitely sounds like you're an intellectual to me that's really cool that you have that gift. i'm always curious to listen to the perspective of others who come from a different understanding than myself.

i'm more of a feeler, and i completely rely on my intuition. i've found that it is rare for me to find concrete explanations to explain what i experience. as opposed to arguing, i prefer to go inside...not for answers, but for connection. feeling connected is what gives me a sense of purpose and gives me my motivation.


i don't know if this is really a theological discussion though

Admittedly, I do feel a lack of connection. Sometimes I wonder what it must be like. It'd be nice to feel connected to things, to people. I know all throughout high school, I was considered to be a distant person - people knew who I was, but they didn't know me. And as far as my beliefs go, I was accused by a couple of people of sucking the emotion out of religion. But I can't deal in subjective feelings; they only tell me so much, and I don't feel like my internal feelings explain external realities.

Anyway, I'm getting tired and I feel like I'm all over the place here. I better go to sleep. Have a good night/day!

The guy who posted on Axver's LJ hating all of us had three IPs, and Dominican Republic was one of them.

Sorry you're bored. I'm doing well but i can't stay long - gotta shower and find my gift cards so I can go buy jeans. all my jeans have holes in them. also boots, as my boots have holes in them.

i'm gonna shower now but i'll be back in 5 minutes, i'm fast. then i can chat while my hair dries.
