    Default Suggestion -- putting yourself in another type's shoes

    Taking inspiration from the 'LSE Thread', I think it would be good to have threads in which a certain type describes what it is like to be that type, what is so awesome about being that type etc. Courage's thread really helped me understand the ESTj more.

    1. Please contribute only if you are certain of your type.

    I like the idea of this, although I can't contribute despite being certain of my type as:

    a) I don't know how much of my behaviour is type-related and how much is due to non-type factors, such as self-confidence for example
    b) I wouldn't know how much detail to go into, as I wouldn't know where to draw the line between what's unique to ILIs and what everyone does anyway

    Why is it great to be an ILI ?

    They are different when compared to other people. I rather call it original.
    And there's something with intelligence. I'm proud of it or something. At least, ILI always seem to understand everything clearer and faster then others.
    Being laid back is also a good trait, but more types have that.

    It is a good and important idea - but, but how much sincerity do we really want, deep down?
    What the hell, I'll give it a go: :wink:


    ESFJ in a Nutshell

    From that time until the 1970's the idea of building stable planes was foremost. Then, because of the computer, fighter aircraft were built to be unstable so they could make quick turns. An unstable airplane design requires that constant adjustments be made to moveable surfaces. The computer and electronic motors make these adjustments possible without the pilot's constant attention.

    PS I guess INTj would be the computer.

    Thanks for the replies.

    I found Courage's level of sincerity fine. The focus is more on how a type thinks, rather than revealing private details about yourself.

    Thanks for the contributions. However, I think it would be best to a) aim at the kind of detail in Courage's thread and b) to start threads for this in your Quadra forums. It would keep things simpler for everyone.

    Best,
