Come on, let's dance!  
I wasn't sure if this community is still alive, but the membership says it's still open and I adore Angel Beats!, so I thought I'd chance filling out one of these anyway.

The Basics

Name: Artemis

Age: 24

Gender: Female

Gender I'd like to be stamped as: I don’t mind.

Give us a general description of your personality: Contradictory, at least to those who don't know me well. I tend to put on whatever face I think will suit any given situation the best, so unless people see me in all kinds of situations, they often only see one or two sides to me and perhaps get the wrong impression. In short though, I'm generally self-contained, introverted, somewhat geeky, and sometimes goofy. I might come across as distant or standoffish on first introduction, but I'm really quite friendly when I get over my own nervousness. And apparently I'm an ISTJ. I wouldn't be surprised if a lot of people who I've come into contact with over the years but who I haven't spent a lot of time with consider me to be quite a boring kind of person, or else snobby.

If you had to sum yourself up in five words...: Self-contained, polite, organised, impatient, anxious.

Five strengths: : Intelligent, self-controlled, super-organised, independent, friendly.

Five weaknesses: Underconfident, tense, shy, impatient, moody.

Hobbies/Interests: Watching anime, reading fantasy/historical fiction novels, swimming, hobby-researching various aspects of Japanese pop culture.

Fears: Spiders and most other large creepy-crawlies. But on a deeper level, I'm scared of falling short of my own expectations and failing the goals I set for myself.

This or That

Are you...

Shy or confident?: Shy

Selfish or selfless?: A little of both, but probably leaning more towards selfish.

Cautious or impulsive?: Again a little of both. Cautious if it’s something I’m afraid of or that could impact my life in a big way, but impulsive if it’s something smaller or less daunting.

Stoic or emotional?: Stoic, usually.

Serious or humorous?: Serious to people who I don’t know well, humorous to friends who I feel really comfortable with.

A leader or a follower?: Follower. . I lack the self-confidence and patience with people that it takes to be a leader.

Calm or hyper?: Calm

Tough or gentle?: Gentle

Mature or immature?: Mature, usually.

A pessimist, optimist, or realist?: Somewhere in-between everything, maybe leaning slightly towards pessimism. I definitely don’t have a negative outlook on life, but I do tend to be a little cynical regarding people in general.

Angel Beats!

Your favourite character(s): Hinata. I like characters who have hidden depths to them, and Hinata doing what he did for Yui did surprise me. I found that whole episode extremely touching (seriously, I got all teary-eyed), and so I think I fell in love a bit with Hinata’s character because of that.

Your least favourite character(s): I honestly don’t dislike any character that much, but I guess I’ll go with Noda. He’s just less interesting to me than most other characters, since he’s very a much ‘what you see is what you get’ sort of guy, and I prefer my characters with a little more mystery to them.

The character you identify most with: Naoi. It’s not that I think I’m much like him in terms of personality, but his story was one of the most touching ones of the anime to me. Feeling that helpless and worthless is really something that made me feel for him, and I can relate to the desire to have something about yourself that’s truly good for something – something that you as well as others can acknowledge as being worthwhile.

In your opinion, which ONE character is nothing like you?: Yuri and Yui. Yuri because I could never be that assertive and lead a group so confidently, and Yui because even though I goof around sometimes, I’ve always been a work-before-play kind of person, and people have sometimes told me that I take life too seriously.
