It seems like the popular type to be atm. Why not start a club? Hell, I'll even join.

I will never join the ILI club! Neeeeevvvvvvvvvvvvveeeeeeeeeeeeerrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr rrrrrrrrrr!
only if the meetings are held in a tree house

I thought ILIs never like clubs?
Yeah, I had also noticed that.Originally Posted by Joy
I think that the forum has reached a point, moving from its earliest stages, where some kinds of personalities are attracted to it; such personalities will often be attracted to ILI as a type, perhaps because it can be interpreted as giving some sort of "legitimacy" to certain patterns of behavior.
Yet, some of those people, if they could really look into the mind of a true ILI, would recoil in disgust, bafflement, horror, and contempt.

and why not?Originally Posted by snegledmaca
Because how confident she was in her mistyping, offering in-depth descriptions, theoretical explanations and loads of misinformation. (For example I'd say the same for courage if he decided to bitch about people being the *wrong* type. Or anybody who was at the point where their entire identity was involved into a type and they were wrong)
But you happen to know who's wrong and who isn't?Originally Posted by snegledmaca
Anyways, this thread is not about one particular person. It just seems like anyone who's having a hard time settling into a type tries like 5 different types on for size before (if) they settle into a type that really makes sense for any period of time, and in those cases, it seems like ILI is always one of the types they cycle through. And it's usually like "wat? lol"
It sorta reminds me of that game from sesame street.
Now, can you guess which of these things is not like the others?
Okay so anyways, this thread may have come across as sounding more hostile than it was intended to. I'm mostly just screwing around. Sometimes it is a little frustrating when someone comes up with ILI as their type because you've talked to them about what their type may be a fair amount, entertaining different possibilities, and then they say "I think I'm ILI" and all you can say is ... but it's not really a big deal, of course. People should explore any possibility that they feel has any chance of fitting.
Who is it that you have this supposed grudge against, Joy?
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...

So would you.Originally Posted by BLauritson
I guess im in. And I agree that people have the tendency to believe they are ILI. I believe that im ILI thanks to Wikisocions.
To be honest I don't feel that deep of connection with people on here, one way or the other. I've had some very friendly e-mails from people and some cool 'hell yeahs' but, other than that, I just don't feel it...sorry. Though I know I am a bad judge of character. I don't know what's really good for me until I don't have it anymore but isn't that just human nature?
Expat really used to annoy me at first, but now, I understand him a bit better so he doesn't bother me in the slightest. I used to be all gung-ho about bionicgoat, but now ...that faded, and I pretty much view everybody equal and a clean-slate. I kinda feel like we're all just identicals circle-jerking with each other sometimes about stuff that doesn't even really matter, but is interesting regardless.
At the very least I view all of you with high respect because, I never thought you could get dorkier than me, but I've noticed...compared to the people I hang around with I'm probably the coolest, popular jock. I mean socionics is SO nerdy, but that's why I love it!
'tis true, I surprise myself now and again. Although not in the sense of having several clones of me who wait in a darkened room and then when I enter and flick the light switch they all shout "SURPRISE!" thus casuing me to have cardiac arrest. That would just be silly.Originally Posted by Garmonbozia
