Curious that Someplace accepted your Otherness, while Otherplace did not...

I don't identify as any ethnicity. Especially when it comes to the ones on typical lists.
Not even Filipino?
Too tall.

Thanks to CivilixXXX for his answers . . . and I just noticed something mindblowing.

25 people have taken the survey so far, on this board, and not one of them listed his or her nationality as Swedish!

What are the odds of that? [o.O]

I assume you could find more in the "You" thread which only goes back to 2014 now (hell, I think I've posted in there about three or four times [:P] ). There's some overlap, but not much.

And now... to answer these questions [:P]
You can tell the same lie a thousand times,
But it never gets any more true,
So close your eyes once more and once more believe
That they all still believe in you.
Just one time.

Neurotype Somewhere on the Asperger's side of things, and a fairly strong tendency towards depression and anxiety which appears to be genetic.

Wow, I thought there were more women here. But not everyone answered this poll, so who knows?
Anyway:

1. Female
2. Not sure
3. Right-handed
4. Israeli (I have a German citizenship but have never lived there so I don't count it)
5. Jewish; family originaly came from Russia, Germany and I think also Romania
6. A mild sensory processing... thing and social anxiety
7. Nothing that I know of
8. No glasses
9.Luckily, no [:P]
10. Avarage on the thin side, not athletic at all
11. I don't even know what some of the example subcultures are. I'm kind of a general nerd who likes science and history and weird useless facts and fictional worlds. If birders are a subculture, than I'm also that :)
12. A very old cat at my parents' house (where I am right now) and no pets in my small student appartment.
13. Agnostic. I do celebrate some holidays but more as a culture and family thing
