I answered test questions for definite Sociotype (English "Advert"):

ISTP - The Mechanic

Quiet and reserved, interested in how and why things work. Excellent skills with mechanical things. Risk-takers who they live for the moment. Usually interested in and talented at extreme sports. Uncomplicated in their desires. Loyal to their peers and to their internal value systems, but not overly concerned with respecting laws and rules if they get in the way of getting something done. Detached and analytical, they excel at finding solutions to practical problems.


I think it's strange test, because I choose better answers for me, but stand question: true or not true these answers.

Through my fingers to the deep,

Это сон во сне?

I often can't pay attention to one thing. For example, I would like to improve in programmer and English, but I like reading fiction books, doing sport, visiting museums and other interesting for me things.
With local things happened the same situation. I sit to do English something, for practice and I can't choose what I want to do more read, listen, watch or do lessons for grammar. And also I think I need a plan for deciding this problem, I think it'll make borders for me.

But have a good news: I can read, listen, watch something on English.

What I'm doing now for my English:
1) I'm reading and listening graduated readers: Seven Stories of Mystery and Horror by Edgar Alan Poe.
(I want to write about books that I'm reading and read, but for it, I'll make a separate post)
2) I start to watch some youtube channels
3) I continued to write my blog
(It make glad me, but I don't know how many mistakes I'm doing)
4) I'm trying to listen to English music more.

16 tons is interested me:


5) I continued to practice with my teacher.
6) Sometimes I make grammar exercises from grammar book by Murphy.
7) I learn new words and use memrise.com for it.

How choose good companion for your travel
One week ago I visited Spain and I was there with my friend. I'm thinking it was the best man for my type of travel. I like visiting museums, just going for walk, looking architecture and I like doing sport.   

If you looking for a companion for a traveling, you should understand, for start, what want to do when you are traveling. My experience shows haven't there aren't many people who like visiting so many museums and not everybody gladly rides a bike all day long.

  • Understand what you want to do when you are traveling
  • After this first item, search friends who like your type of traveling 
  • And who share your hobbies. It's good when you have topics for talking.  
  • Financial possibility - not least important thing, when you are traveling especially If you don't want to think about money. It will be good if financial possibilities are the same.
  • Physical  possibility. If you like an active holiday it'll important otherwise your travel will be like traveling alone. 
  • Some little details lifestyle: smoke/drink/needs of comfortable and other things, which can make your travel awful.  
  • If that person has sense of humor - it's always big positive for travel

    For start, I want to write several phrases, which I listened at the last book club meeting:

    1) My resume is list things which I will not want to do.
    2) About books by Honoré de Balzac: I'm always amazed  how persons from his book talk ten minutes... and anybody never interrupted him.  (It's actually for our club because often people interrupt each other)
