It's funny, because I think I know everything there is to know about tying, even if I've only just been introduced to a theory, and then when Expat says something like 'trust us - you don't know, we do' I take offence. How pathetic of me.Originally Posted by XoX
I know I'm not ESTj by nature (Ganin's TA is basically a rehash of MBTI, typing by dichotomies). Nor am I ENFj. Although I've expressed sentiments and played out actions tied with both. But fundamentally, my function ordering is nothing like them. I can also cross off all the IJ and IP temperaments just by looking at the behaviour and observing cert IP and IJ friends of mine. I don't think I'm part of the EJ temperament. Their focus on non-divergence from and strict attachment to the plan is simply too immoderate for me. I can diverge very easily. However, there are many things I do relate to, like their relationships with other temperaments, as well as some of their behaviour. Nonetheless, I don't think my psychological patterns really correspond with EJ. They're much more akin to EP.
The problem I have from here onwards is deciding my functional ordering. Can an SLE truly be an ENTJ in MBTI? Can one be intuitive and sensing, judging and perceiving? Also, how imaginative can SLEs be? I'd have no problem calling myself an ILE were it not for my refusal to avoid conflict, regardless of the kind of atmosphere it may create.
