    This is an authentic description by a very famous man.

    What do you think?


    "one of the delicate [guys ]who came into the bathroom with me and then found it utterly impossible to look at me while I sat there on the toilet. You'd think he had never seen those parts of the body before. For there he was, standing as far away from me as he possibly could, keeping his back toward me the whole time, trying to carry on a conversation. I could barely hear a word he said. I kept straining my ears and then finally I asked him to come a little closer to me. Then began the most ludicrous scene I had ever witnessed. Instead of simply turning around and walking over to me, he kept his face away from me and walked backward, one rickety step at a time. For a moment there I thought he was going to run right into me. It certainly made me wonder how that man had made it so far in the world."

    Sounds like Se's view of Ne.
    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...

    Se>Si. Not a big fan of Deltas. LOL

    The person could be talking about my INFj sister. I have no doubt that's how she'd react if someone wanted her to talk to them while they were on the toilet. She would be mortified but wouldn't want a confrontation, particularly with someone famous and/or powerful.

    It sounds like someone who has fun exerting power over others.

    I wouldn't want to hold a conversation with someone I worked with while they were on the toilet. Ugh. I can't even imagine. I think I'd be able to simply say no.

    Could you tell us more about the situation this guy is talking about? Is it some military context? A hospital? Nursing home? I can't imagine why you would have someone with you while you were "sitting there on the toilet" (actually I can; I've listed them above)

    im also thinking that this would be an Se>Si person because of the "how did that person get by" phrase. Also i tend to think of deltas as more demure for whatever reason but that wouldn't really tell me much about the person who was making the comment, just that I think that the man he was talking about was more likely delta than alpha assuming they were Ne.

    It was simply their place of work. It's really about a guy having a conversation with a subordinate, having to go to the toilet, and not wanting to interrupt the conversation. There are no tricks.

    the one who is so desperate to continue a conversation that he asks the other person to accompany him to the toilet and leaves the door open while he sits down on the toilet

    Everybody poops! But no, I'd rather not watch you!

    I think the description might be from a beta type, simply because the behavior which he finds so inexplicable of the other person strikes me as delta, though I think the speaker misinterprets it. Rather than it being his inability to face the situation, it seems more to me to be a sign of politeness, a value for privacy and a gift of the same. Namely a treating others as they themselves would want to be treated, though it is equally clear that this is not how the other person would want to be treated or at least expected to be.

    ESTp or ISTj seem likely, though for its brevity there are certainly open options.

    The person is the former president of the United States, Lyndon Johnson.

    Who was a dominant if anyone was; but I think SEE rather than SLE.

    And no, not all SEEs would do that.

    What do you think?
    Someone talking about a Delta most likely. Could be a lot of things on the other end though.
