    This is entirely pointless. It simply doesn't matter what you think, or what you vote is. This isn't American Idol.

    UDP is right, Joy. These threads depend on people's opinion of my type, as opposed to what type I actually am.
    Ideas don't determine who's right. Power determines who's right. And I have the power. So I'm right.

    Yes, but there's something to be said for intertype relations. If most of the Betas thought you weren't Beta, it might mean something. It doesn't mean much if they think you are though. Similarly, if most of the Gammas thought you were Gamma, it might mean something (but it doesn't mean much if they think you're not).

    (I say "doesn't mean much" when votes correspond to long standing general consensus. It doesn't mean they're not right, just they're not offering any new information. We already know that the general consensus is that Ezra's SLE.)

    I don't really know Ezra well enough to judge his type or quadra. I know there's countless type threads about him but I haven't really got the patience to read them all, so.. I'd probably be more certain if I knew him IRL, but I suppose that's the case with most people anyway.

    The consensus is pretty clouded according to your two polls. 50/50 think I'm Gamma and not Gamma. 50/50 think I'm Beta and not Beta. In this case, I think it's fair to say that the people's opinion means nothing, because a) they probably don't care and b) they clearly don't have sound enough judgements.

    i agree. i was trying not to give a negative description of ezra. and yeah, the third person thing was an exaggeration. I see ezra as more of a guy who talks a lot and talks specifically alot about what he thinks about things. i mean, a lot of conversation is like this, but i can see ezra being insistent upon addressing what he thinks in conversation.

    oh most definitely. have you ever met any entj? a lot of them are superiorly outgoing and friendly, interested people. some are dorky, sure, but others aren't. a good entj stereotype: the pragmatic engineering major who is really interested in how things work, etc. There are shitloads of these types where i live.

    he's not beta. most people in beta are retarded with typing people, that is all. They look toward specific demonstrated behaviors, which varies too much with the situation.

    I think a lot of LIE's are more interested in enterprising (business and investing) than in acadamia though. It's too easy to start/acquire businesses and high yield investments in the US not to draw many LIE's to interests such as these. Most of them may have regular careers, but the company pension plan and social security are probably the last things they look to when they're making long term financial plans. I think there are a whole lot without regular careers too though. They'll get into a specific field for five or so years (often for the purpose of starting a business or learning stuff that'll help them invest), then get interested in another field. Even the ones who spend a decade in school often do so with the intent of using their knowledge/credentials for business/investing purposes.

    Te subtypes are very open and will never shut up about the latest thing they've learned/done/planned.
    This is probably true of most LIE's, I would think. There's also almost always going to be a casual interest in science.

    I've met Ezra 3 times now.

    In my opinion, Beta or Gamma are a given; Alpha or Delta can be safely dismissed.

    If he's Gamma, then I think SEE rather than LIE. But I still think SLE is more likely.

    Okay, if you are right about that, Ezra is necessarily either a LIE or a totally confused SEE or SLE. The most simple explanation is of course to assume that he is a LIE.

    To assume that Ezra is more most likely an SLE and more likely an SEE than a LIE is an insult to his intelligence in the same way that you habitually insult other people here by questioning their self-typings and thereby indirectly assume that they are completely lost and deluded. It is of course not totally out of the question that some people here really are lost and deluded, but such explanations always have an irritatingly conspiratory touch, and are therefore not likely to be true. The most likely explanation is without doubt that Ezra is a LIE.

    While Ezra's overall "feel" fits SEE better than LIE, I don't really have any big problems with his being LIE (though he does seem to be more comfortable complimenting others than the typical LIE, I don't think that necessarily means that he's not LIE). I do, however, have a problem with SEE, and that's Ti.

    Anyone remember my first topic here? Instead of describing myself, I came in and listed my types in like 3 other systems, asking what that would make me in Socionics. This isn't unlike Ezra's approach concerning correlating Socionics with other systems. (I think he gets too caught up in it sometimes, but perhaps that's to be expected from someone who was so familiar with other systems before developing interest in Socionics.) Is this how we'd expect a SEE to think?

    I think the way his intertype relations have played out since he's been here have shown that he's Gamma > Beta, and I think that functionally it makes more sense for him to be LIE than SEE. And while I don't think that we should use other typology systems to type him, I do think that his being an enneagram 8 and an MBTT ENTJ suggest LIE > SEE.

    Everyone? Other than FDG, who else is there?

    My only two recent Beta to Gamma type switches have been ScarlettLux and Ezra.

    fdg thinks ezra is gamma? i didn't know this. at any rate, i still think SLE is probably more likely and beta quadra makes a lot of sense. he has some Se traits but you really can't be SeFi if you're not showing much Fi. perhaps i'm missing it but i haven't seen it yet.

    you misunderstand. i'm saying tell me why you and others have suddenly decided that ezra is SEE/LIE instead of SLE.

    All I have to say on the matter is that...Ezra makes me think of Naruto almost immediately.


    Oh, and that I'd greatly enjoy spending time with him. Half of the reason being that I'm intrigued, the other half because I'm failrly confident I would not be bored much at all.

    The way forum members respond to him, and the way he responds to forum members.

    From the beginning I said that my preliminary typing of him was SLE, but that we'd have to wait to see how his interactions would play out over time in order to have a better idea of what his type was. At this point, people from other quadras has said that he pretends to be tough and that he speaks too highly of himself. From what I've seen, it's been the Gamma quadra members here who don't have these complaints about him. And he's been more complimentary of Gamma quadra members than any other.

    And I dunno, if I was younger and had higher levels of testosterone, I could maybe see myself being somewhat similar to him.
