    Default Type Motivation Descriptions In Detail

    Here's a link to a short, crisp sentence for each type. Perhaps it would be an idea to build on them as a forum.

    Also, there's a link to an extremely interesting and enlightening article by Rick, here, for those of you who haven't read it before. Might I add that it has really helped me get an insight into type.

    By far Rick makes the Si types messages look far better. Who wouldn't agree with this:

    SEI - Deriving enjoyment from all your actions and interactions.
    ESE - Turning life into an enjoyable, beautiful experience.
    SLI - Balanced, harmonious living and temperance.
    Especially the second. I suppose everybody wants to turn life into a beatiful experience.

    You would, of course, being...the type you are :wink:
    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...

    I'm not particularly fond of any of them... but if I had to pick one, I'd go with ILI. (The LIE description sounds too short term or limited, in a way?)

    Basically, Fabio, it's like what Joy said a while ago: it's not necessarily their driving motivation in life, whereas for Si types, turning life into a beautiful experience is really what they live for. An LIE, for example, could live without this, and would see it as extra baggage.

    But is that what you bring to the table? Or is it what you're searching for?

    Perhaps these motivations could be described as what each type sees as "the point"?

    No. Then I would be ESE.

    There is no objective point to life. It's how someone wants to live their life. I want to be a lawyer so I'm rich, and can enjoy life with this money.

    Don't worry, the States know fuck all about law. I'm staying in Britain, where the distinction between solicitor and barrister is clear. Yes, one msut work hard for one to become rich unless one comes up with a genius plan to get rich quick, in which case one is very lucky. Business is, by the way, my next option, career wise.

    Both sound appealing. I would have to modify IEI to creating meaning rather than recognizing meaning.
    Done!

    That's certainly possible. It's hard to avoid subtle biases. How could the related messages be improved, in your opinion?
    It is easier for the eye of a camel to pass through a rich man than for a needle to enter the kingdom of heaven.
