Tricking a Scammer in OLX

OLX is a local buy & sell website, where you can post an ad that you’re selling, or if you’re a buyer you can search from the market and contact the seller of that item. I made a few successful transactions from that e-commerce site, but I also met unusual people, ranging from low ballers, those who repetitively ask the same questions without them noticing it, or those who ask for the impossible, and esp those who have fraudulent schemes.

Uber driver vs Passenger

You probably read the article in Facebook about this Uber (mobile cab service) driver and the rider incident. For those who haven’t read that, I am posting the statements from both sides and the surprising discussion that comes after that, lol.  All photo credit goes to When In Manila

Even the best fall down sometimes

I was never a Lakers fan. But to see a great player, like Kobe Bryant, grimacing in pain is just heartbreaking, that you wish it would never happen to anyone. And we don’t know if it’s going to be the end of his career, his great games were saved already on tapes anyway, where people can watch over and over. But it’s about the heart he had shown on that last game to carry his team despite of his injury. I don’t have to be a Lakers fan to salute Kobe, he had brought championships to the table. This is not anymore a discussion on who is going to be the next Michael Jordan, guess we are way passed that. Whether you wear that famous yellow shirt or not, we can all agree that we wish him to recover fast, so we could see more of his fancy moves, his leadership and more rings.

A fight with ego

While talking with a friend, I remember her saying “I don’t know” about something, and initially it sounded as if she lost interest on it nor nothing smart thing to say, but as the discussion goes on, she gives wonderfully insightful responses. And that is how I admire her ego.

So why call it ego? Sigmund Freud’s “The ego is not master in its own house.” will greatly explain that to overcome ego, you must know the boundaries of what you can and what you can’t do. The negative connotation on ego lies only when you see yourself rising all the time, and not noticing your pit falls. The ability to say the phrase “I don’t know” does not mean stupidity, but it’s being humble with what you know, and becoming comfortable with some form of discomfort. These kind of people will seek help when necessary, as they believe that there is no shame in not knowing or failing.

Anne Curtis not wearing panty?

News Headline: Maiinit na balita…Anne, walang panty!

I really don’t know why people are making a buzz out of Anne Curtis’ birthday performance in ASAP. Perhaps the birthday girl would really want to make her day memorable.

Honestly, it doesn’t matter if she wears one from this angle. It’s really none of our business, and it’s not really the first time hearing of an artist being panty-less, right? Uhh you’re right.

Traumatic Growth

images

We are all aware and heard about the natural calamities that took place in almost every part of the world. Strong typhoons, tsunamis, earthquake, volcanic eruption, and the likes had been experienced, and made everyone aware of it. The survivors of these calamities had proven to develop positive and psychological changes. They are more appreciative of life, more flexible, has better world view on the new possibilities, more strength and had improved relationships with family or spiritually. This was associated with the psychological term called “Post Traumatic Growth.”

But did you know that there’s one person who had seen this explanation, a long time ago? Yes it’s Friedrich Nietzsche, where he had written, “that which does not kill us, makes us stronger.” Apparently he is right.

I believe that it’s a choice though, to improve ourselves after a hardship, and that we make ourselves better by coping up with the different degrees of suffering. We need not to wait for another calamity to hit us, everyday we are surviving life changes from pain, heartaches, disappointments, domestic violence, etc. We can all have this mindset to continuously improve ourselves, after all, that’s the only thing we have control over.

Discovering myself as INTJ & you’ve just undressed me!

INTJ_me

Now that I have your attention on the “undressing” part, let me share that I took up this personality test years ago, I remember having the same IN part, not sure if its the same variance, but who cares really? So this post is pretty much about being an INTJ, we will not go down as to how accurate it is and all the blahs. If you’re an INTJ like me, read on:

intjbadge_attrThe INTJ personality type is one of the rarest and most interesting types – comprising only about 2% of the U.S. population (INTJ females are especially rare–just 0.8%), INTJs are often seen as highly intelligent and perplexingly mysterious. INTJ personalities radiate self-confidence, relying on their huge archive of knowledge spanning many different topics and areas.

INTJs are analytical. Like INTPs, they are most comfortable working alone and tend to be less sociable than other types. Nevertheless, INTJs are prepared to lead if no one else seems up to the task, or if they see a major weakness in the current leadership. They tend to be pragmatic, logical, and creative. They have a low tolerance for spin or rampant emotionalism. They are not generally susceptible to catchphrases and do not recognize authority based on tradition, rank, or title.

As an INTJ, your primary mode of living is focused internally, where you take things in primarily via your intuition. Your secondary mode is external, where you deal with things rationally and logically. INTJs live in the world of ideas and strategic planning. They value intelligence, knowledge, and competence, and typically have high standards in these regards, which they continuously strive to fulfill. To a somewhat lesser extent, they have similar expectations of others.

However, their primary interest is not understanding a concept, but rather applying that concept in a useful way. Unlike the INTP, they do not follow an idea as far as they possibly can, seeking only to understand it fully. INTJs are driven to come to conclusions about ideas. Their need for closure and organization usually requires that they take some action.

INTJs are natural leaders, although they usually choose to remain in the background until they see a real need to take over the lead. When they are in leadership roles, they are quite effective, because they are able to objectively see the reality of a situation, and are adaptable enough to change things which aren’t working well. They are the supreme strategists – always scanning available ideas and concepts and weighing them against their current strategy, to plan for every conceivable contingency.

INTJs are ambitious, self-confident, deliberate, long-range thinkers. Many INTJs end up in engineering or scientific pursuits, although some find enough challenge within the business world in areas which involve organizing and strategic planning. They dislike messiness and inefficiency, and anything that is muddled or unclear. They value clarity and efficiency, and will put enormous amounts of energy and time into consolidating their insights into structured patterns.

INTJs have a tremendous amount of ability to accomplish great things. They have insight into the Big Picture, and are driven to synthesize their concepts into solid plans of action. Their reasoning skills gives them the means to accomplish that. INTJs are most always highly competent people, and will not have a problem meeting their career or education goals. They have the capability to make great strides in these arenas. On a personal level, the INTJ who practices tolerances and puts effort into effectively communicating their insights to others has everything in his or her power to lead a rich and rewarding life.

INTJs have a thirst for knowledge and a passion for improvement. Constantly working to better themselves, they are often perfectionists. INTJs are also focused on finding ways to improve processes, always open to possibilities and new ideas. They enjoy taking the time to truly understand ideas or systems, and using their analytical skills to solve complex problems. INTJs often have a broad vision for what is best for an organization, and are driven to implement these ideas.

INTJs prefer structure and order, and expect others to follow the rules and procedures. Once committed, INTJs go to great lengths to fulfill their responsibilities and typically can be trusted to get the job done. Independent and forward-thinking, INTJs tend to be visionaries and are often found in leadership positions where they can apply their well-developed organizational skills to systems and people. Typically confident in their abilities and their insights, INTJs often have a unique ability to clearly and concisely express their vision and goals.

INTJs are idea people. Anything is possible; everything is negotiable. Whatever the outer circumstances, INTJs are ever perceiving inner pattern-forms and using real-world materials to operationalize them. Others may see what is and wonder why; INTJs see what might be and say “Why not?!” Paradoxes, antinomies, and other contradictory phenomena aptly express these intuitors’ amusement at those whom they feel may be taking a particular view of reality too seriously. INTJs enjoy developing unique solutions to complex problems.

In forming relationships, INTJs tend to seek out others with similar character traits and ideologies. Agreement on theoretical concepts is an important aspect of their relationships. By nature INTJs can be demanding in their expectations, and approach relationships in a rational manner. As a result, INTJs may not always respond to a spontaneous infatuation but wait for a mate who better fits their set criteria. They tend to be stable, reliable, and dedicated. Harmony in relationships and home life tends to be extremely important to them. They generally withhold strong emotion and do not like to waste time with what they consider irrational social rituals. This may cause non-INTJs to perceive them as distant and reserved; nevertheless, INTJs are usually very loyal partners who are prepared to commit substantial energy and time into a relationship to make it work.

As mates, INTJs want harmony and order in the home and in relationships. The most independent of all types, INTJs trust their intuition when choosing friends and mates—even in spite of contradictory evidence or pressure from others. The emotions of an INTJ are hard to read, and neither male nor female INTJs are apt to express emotional reactions. At times, INTJs seem cold, reserved, and unresponsive, while in fact they are almost hypersensitive to signals of rejection from those they care for. In social situations, INTJs may also be unresponsive and may neglect small rituals designed to put others at ease. For example, INTJs may communicate that idle dialogue such as small talk is a waste of time. This may create the impression that the INTJ is in a hurry—an impression that is not always intended. In their interpersonal relationships, INTJs are usually better in a working situation than in a recreational situation.
