    Default Mirrors and identicals...

    One quick question... I'm sure.

    Would your mirror type be the next easiest to act like, after your identical type? Is it the one you're most likely to switch to when you change types (in the short-term, I know types are permanent)?

    I was thinking that mirror would make most sense, because it would be the same quadra.

    it would probably be easier to act like a quasi-identical or contrary, just because of the opposing temperaments.

    I think it would be almost impossible to act like a dynamic as a static, or visa versa.

    I don't know that you can "act" like another type. Portray stereotypical behaviors, yeah, but actually act like another type...impossible, IMO.
    But, for a certainty, back then,
    We loved so many, yet hated so much,
    We hurt others and were hurt ourselves...

    Yet even then, we ran like the wind,
    Whilst our laughter echoed,
    Under cerulean skies...

    Imitating the entirety of another type's Model A motivations, behaviors, etc.

    In my opinion and experience - yes.

    As Gilly said, I think the Static - Dynamic "shift" is the most difficult. So I find it much more likely that an EJ has IP "moments" and vice-versa, the same for IJ and EP, than between IP and IJ etc.
