    Default What temperament do you admire most? And why?

    Definitely IJ for me. They're so calm, collected, and on top of things. <3

    (Even the ones that are a mess atm were once like that and will be again once they regain their footing.)

    EP. I love their unpredictability and their ability to energize me to enjoy external activities impulsively.

    EJ's, because they're outgoing, yet not rebellious or undocile like EP's.

    Perhaps the word you're looking for is flippant?

    EJ's, because they're outgoing, yet not undocile... like EP's.
    Antonyms: docile

    adj Definition: compliant, submissive
    Antonyms: determined, headstrong, inflexible, intractable, obstinate, opinionated, stubborn, uncooperative, unyielding
    Are you sure you're talking about EJ's?

    Anyways, correct me if I'm wrong here but this "undocile" quality you're referring to seems to be either a dislike for their impulsiveness (and mobile-ness?) or possibly somehow having to do with Se.

    mmm IP's of the creating subtype

    generally though I find very hard to like an entire temperament more than another one: for each temperament I see an equal number of types that I like and that I dislike

    Interesting that everyone so far has named the temperament their dual has (well, I don't know about anamericancancer's or Cyclop's type, but I had suspected them of being IP and IJ, so I dunno).

    I'm not saying I think you are or are not a certain type, but I recall reading your posts and then seeing your sig and thinking "huh, I was under the impression (s)he was IEI... "

    I agree with FDG--there's a type in every temperment that I feel at least at least luke-warm toward... I most admire the other types of my own temperment, I suppose-- EP.

    Umm when I think of temperament I think of how I view the 4 types that make up that temperament so I'd have to say that I actually admire IJs the most

    EPs - are fun but sometimes try too hard and are prone to bouts of narcissism which is annoying to deal with

    EJs - some are admirable, others are annoying nitpickers and naggers

    IPs - actually I like my fellow IPs. They mind their own business and don't really care if you admire them

    IJs - Have their shit together, know when to act and know when to shut up, awesome combination.

    Ip's....because they tend to be interested in my nonsense...as a whole. ;]



    and i'd say i admire some Ij's for the reasons Joy stated. but i'd barely call it admiration...more like..."hey thats different than me, kinda of a cool difference. they make me feel sort of calmer, thats nice."

    I like EJ energy, particularly how directed it can seem.

    Almost exactly what I would say but over all, I admire IPs and find IJs to sometimes be too judgmental.

    Ej's and Ip's.

    especially the producing subtype of Ej.

    I really admire IPs and how their whole life seems to constantly have flow and direction. I always try to get as close to that and try to achieve that sense of flow that they experience - it's almost like they have all the answers, or can just go with a feeling without getting caught up analyzing it or being too static with it as I sometimes am. When I'm with them I feel carried like on a river, where I don't have to worry about the momentum. With EJs its different - even though they're dynamic, I feel more of a "grip" coming from them, which to me feels restrictive at times.

    Technically, the temperament one ought to admire most is their dual. In reality, this isn't the case with me. I admire rationals for their predictability and ability to plan well. EJs because of their constant passive ability to just keep moving, like an elephant running rampant in a jungle, but more inconspicuous. I admire IJs because they have a cool head and are generally quite systematic and logical (regardless of base function) people. Both EJ and IJ are genuinely decent role models for me; EJ because of their constant energy, IJ because they're calm and consisten.
    Ideas don't determine who's right. Power determines who's right. And I have the power. So I'm right.
