the Belenen survey, updated to be even more gloriously nosy and thought-provoking


Please comment with your answers! Do 'em all or pick and choose. All comments are screened but I will unscreen unless you ask for them to stay private.

Note: most people have to split their survey into multiple comments because of LJ's character limit. And actually, if it doesn't take you at least 2 comments, ur doin it rong.

01. what is the name you go by among friends? is it self-chosen or was it given by someone else?
02. what's the story behind your username?
03. age and sign of the zodiac (sun, rising, and moon if you know them):
04. what are your self-labels?
05. around which core values do you structure your morality?
06. what makes you cry actual tears of joy? what makes you cry actual tears of sorrow?
07. what qualities are you currently working on developing in yourself?
08. do you consider yourself anti-prejudice and anti-oppression? if so, in what ways do you help to create equality in the world?
09. If you could have three wishes granted, what would they be?
10. have you changed gender and/or sex? That is, did you once consider yourself a gender and/or sex that you no longer identify with?
11. Describe your sexuality: whether or not you like sex, how you like to have sex, what your best sexual experiences have been like, the elements that need to be present for you to enjoy sex, etc.
12. what's your preferred relationship structure: monogamous, polyamorous, polyfidelitous, other? Do you have/want (a) marriage-type life partner(s)?
13. how do you feel about fat? that is, how do you feel about the fat of your body and the fat of others' bodies?
14. how do you feel about 'little white lies'?
15. Who are the people you choose to spend the most time with/for, and why do they matter to you?
16. how do you feel about nudity (do you like being nude / being around others who are nude)?
17. how often do you push yourself to share thoughts and feelings that make you vulnerable to others?
18. do you often cuddle with friends (not just lovers) or would you if you had cuddly friends?
19. are you concerned with how humans treat the earth (and its creatures)? if so, what do you do to protect/restore it?
20. do you have a strong affinity with any particular part of the earth (a certain type of animal, plant, water body, landscape, and/or a particular place)?
21. do you consider yourself a spiritual person? if so, in what ways do you express this? do you worship, pray, do ritual, meditate, other? do you have a deity(-ies)? do you identify with a particular religion?
22. what do you believe about the parts of a person? are we just mind and body or is there more? if you believe in more, what do you call it?
23. where do you plan to spend most of your life? do you like to travel?
24. what sort of creative things do you like to do?
25. if someone made a deluxe action figure based on you, what 3 props and 3 outfits would they have? also, what would the deluxe playset look like?
26. if you could know everything about one subject, what would it be?
27. if you didn't need to earn money and you could have free training in anything as long as you were willing to give the time, what would you want to do with your life?
28. do you read for fun? if so, what're your favorite genre(s), favorite author(s) and favorite book(s)?
29. favorite color (be specific -- not just green, mint or lime or emerald):
30. favorite musical genre(s) / artists:
31. favorite movie(s) / show(s):
32. what activities make it easiest for you to connect with other people in a deep and intimate way?
33. Sum up your life philosophy in 8 words or less!

on communication, social justice, intimacy, consent, friendship & other relationships, spirituality, gender, queerness, & dreams. Expect to find curse words, nudity, (occasionally explicit) talk of sex, and angry ranting, but NEVER slurs or sexually violent language. I use TW when I am aware of the need and on request.
