Hey, Alphas - I just wanted to say "hello," having done some more self-analysis (both testing and reflection) and found my personality to fit much more closely with the ESE than EIE descriptions I had previously thought I was.
Being ENFJ in Meyers-Briggs, I assumed EIE in socionics... but the descriptions never felt quite right in some way, and I've finally figured out why: my Ni sucks compared to a typical EIE, while my Si is fairly well-developed. Also, the ways I interact with other types are more along the lines of ESE relations than EIE (which in some cases is quite a drastic difference!) I wonder how many others here have had this experience. Also, is it possible to be so close on the border between EIE and ESE that a person flip-flops back and forth in different situations? I am fairly new at all of this and find it fascinating, if perplexing at times, and your insights are all greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance!!
