Who is Muhammed Softic?
“I’m someone who values creativity, rationality and honesty. Those three aspects of life have helped me become who I am today. Someone who sees the positive things in others and myself. Someone who wants to be the best me I can possibly be and someone who encourages others to do the same. I’m also the creator of Artistsay and in general I’m very interested in basically everything that’s creative. Only things I’m not interested in are things I’m not aware of!”
“If you could only show us one project of yours, to describe what you do, which one would it be and why?”
“Artistsay! That’s the one and only project that reflects who I am. I love art and creativity, but I’m not an artist. Art is so complex and has so many different sides to it. I want to explore them all! Artistsay gives me a platform to talk with people in all kinds of fields and it let’s me gather information, experiences, thoughts and opinions from countless people around the world.”
“If your friends or co-workers were here, what would they tell me about you?”
“He’s shy at first, but once you get to know him, he’s like a completely different person!” This description fits me quite well. They’d also tell you that I’m a really open person. I’m not afraid to speak what’s on my mind and if someone needs honest advice or just someone that listens to them, they usually come to me.”
A free personality test from personalitymax.com was used to get this data. If you want to see the full test results, with proper explanations, click here.
personalitymax.com is based on the popular theory of 16 personality types, which sorts people into 16 different categories. Each category has four letters assigned to them. Those letters are based on the graph down below. To learn more about the 16 different personalities click here.
Muhammed Softic’s personality type is INTJ
Distribution of the 16 personality types throughout the general population:
INTJ – The “Strategist”
INTJs are private, independent and self-confident. They strive for perfection and achievement. They are gifted strategists with analytical, conceptual and objective minds. They are flexible and like to formulate contingency plans. Strategists are able to see the reasons behind things.
INTJs direct their energy inward. They are energized by spending time alone. They typically have fewer friends and prefer small groups. They are private, quiet and deliberate. Strategists are Intuitive people that are always thinking and analyzing. Strategists are very deep and abstract. They are complex on the inside and see endless possibilities.
Strategists are Thinkers that make decisions with their head. They are objective and logical. They are critical, impersonal and thick-skinned. INTJs are structured and scheduled. They are controlled and responsible. They seek closure and enjoy completing tasks.
Social interaction is often the Strategist’s greatest challenge since it requires setting aside their strategic thinking. They are not affectionate unless they feel very safe. They do not always know how they affect others and can appear insensitive. Since Strategists enjoy deep conversations, more shallow forms of social interaction are often seen as a waste of time. They want their relationships to serve a good purpose. Strategists honor commitments.
“According to your own judgement, how accurate were the results of this personality test?”
“I’ve done a couple of different personality tests before this one. All of them gave me the same results. The way they describe it, differs from site to site and generally speaking I’d agree with most of what the results say. There were certainly a lot of things I was unaware of, in regards to myself, but after some thinking, it’s pretty strange how accurate some of the statements are.”
Disclaimer: Keep in mind that the tests are talking about the ideal person that you could possibly be. They generalize and ignore a lot of important aspects, like age, upbringing and similarly important factors.
Hobbies – Ordered by importance and frequency
“What do you enjoy most about your hobbies?”
Drawing allows me to forget everything around me and focus on what I’m currently doing, which is putting the pen down and making the next line.
3D modeling requires conscious decision making and problem solving. It forces me to actively think about what I’m doing.
I enjoy being outside in nature and love the scenery where I live.
Playing the piano seems quite mechanical, just press down the buttons, but the amount of emotion that can be expressed through simple button presses is absolutely fascinating.
“What makes those topics so interesting?”
The more I understand about the human mind, the better I understand myself and the people around me.
It’s fascinating how creative some people can be. The worlds, characters and stories artists can come up with are incredible.
It’s really satisfying to see a CNC machine work and the precision that comes with it.
Being able to dive into a whole new world and forget everything around you. A good manga allows you to do exactly that.
“What’s one memory you never want to forget?”
“A couple of years after dropping out of school, I still didn’t have a job. I spent most of my time, at home, trying to learn different skills. Progress was slow, but I got better and my personality started to change. I learnt a lot about myself and the people around me, but in the end, I was still just a dropout, without a job and not a single cent to my name.
One day, my mom and I went for a walk. Out of nowhere, she said she was proud of me. That one sentence brought so much joy to me. I thought I was worthless, a nobody, but my mom was still proud of me.”
“What is something everyone should atleast try once in their life?”
“Raising and training a dog! Dogs always try to push right up against boundaries you’ve set and they constantly challenge your patience, consistency and your toughness. Especially if you have a bigger, stubborn, independent dog (like I do), it’s important to be the best dog trainer you can be. Even if you are a timid, shy person, a dog won’t take that into consideration. They’ll force you out of your comfort zone and push you to be a leader!”
“As you get older, what are you becoming more and more afraid of?”
“Forgetting precious memories. As soon as a memory is forgotten, it’s as if it never happened. That thought alone is scary and I don’t know how to deal with it. I wish I took pictures or recorded more while I was growing up. That’s one of the only ways to make sure you don’t forget and I didn’t do any of that. Countless precious moments, lost in the abyss of our subconsciousness.”
“What chapter in your life, did you enjoy most?”
“I always had a small circle of friends, but in the last two years of elementary school, I found myself around a lot more people than usual. My circle of friends grew rapidly and I stopped playing games as much as I used to. Spent the majority of my time outside, playing pool billard, swimming, riding my bike and countless other activities… It was fun!”
“What’s the biggest obstacle you’ve had to face in your life?”
“I had to face myself. Who am I? Who do I want to become? Why am I doing this? What is it all for? Those questions still need answers. I’ve changed a lot over the last few years. Mostly, because I actually tried to change. I didn’t just go on with life, doing the same things everyone else does. Ignoring all the warning signs your body and mind are showing you. I listened to myself, I asked myself and I discussed with myself. Becoming who I truly want to be, that’s the biggest obstacle I have yet to overcome.”
“If you could have a video of any event in your life, which one would you choose?”
“During a school trip, in a bus, my best friend who was sitting next to me, took out a 2L bottle of Coca Cola and he started to drink from it. In that moment I had the bright idea to squeeze the bottle. As I was squeezing the bottle, all the liquid shot into his mouth and instead of spitting it out to the side or infront of him, he purposefully turned towards me and we ended up both being completely drenched in Coca Cola. I really wanted to get mad, but I was way too busy laughing.”
