    Fuck it. I've stated my opinion and have no obligation to elaborate if I don't feel like it. You people can think what you want. I'm not trying to convince anyone of anything.

    Joy you should understand that it seems a bit silly to post such a declaration without any intent of informing people of the rationale behind it.
    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...

    I'll be the first to admit that I'm no expert on socionics, but I just cannot see how Ezra is SEE. That would mean Ti is his PoLR, and that's just doesn't seem to match the content of his posts. It seems to me that he uses Ti alot

    It would also mean that he is my conflictor. I don't really see that. Maybe I haven't been around enough, but he seems to get along ok with most LII's. Of course, not everyone accepts inter-type relations...

    glamourama, I'll explain it to you in PM. Last night, I thought everyone I cared who thought I was SEE actually did think I was (though I still need to discuss it with niffweed). Most of these people came to this conclusion themselves. Now I realise that I want to explain it to you, for whatever reason I can't explain.

    For you, it seems that this kind of argument is good enough.
    Ideas don't determine who's right. Power determines who's right. And I have the power. So I'm right.

    I'm forwarding my PM to glamourama to you. That has some of Joy's arguments in.

    ...wouldn't that mean Ezra supervises me? If I'm EII, that is.

    I honestly don't feel supervised at all. And I don't really see the strong Fi, either (provided I have a decently accurate understanding of Fi).

    Then don't make some dumbass claim about it in public.

    btw, nice demonstration of how you're Fe - promoting an opinion to make an effect, then bitching when there is external discord

    Do you see him as your conflictor? You said before you did not, I believe.
    Hmm, interesting point. Who DO you feel supervised by?

    I can't say I "feel supervised" by anyone on this forum.

    Gamma probably makes more sense. What about LIE as another consideration?

    I think there's an argument there for Ezra being Ti PoLR. However, I'm not sure I see the creative Fi. (In other words, I see what could be called poor Ti, but I don't see valued Fi.) If I am ILE, that may just be function-blindness on my part... But even so, I'd be happy to hear someone's argument for it. Another hesitation I have for considering Ezra as SEE is, as glamourama said, his dislike of how Beta is stereotypically portrayed. From some of his recent posts it seems like he doesn't really understand Ti. He seems to equate Ti with simple closed-mindedness - of course looking at it that way would make someone not like it.

    no surprise there lol. It seems that the same type of stuff has contributed to Joy's self-typing of ENTj.

    i.e. "If you do X act then that means you have bad intentions, you bad person! You better not be ill-intentioned! Always be good through and through or you're bad! We must work to be good or we will end up having bad motives! Everything could be a catalyst of such a sin! It's important never to hurt people's feelings or make them unhappy. You should feel bad because they feel bad. Otherwise you have bad intentions--you want them to feel bad. The mood in the room will be bad, and you will feel it from the other side of the wall. You will feel guilty until you apologize for your bad intentions and make them feel better."

    Yeah, it's crazy, but it's there. They're freakin' paranoid about whether or not their own intentions were good.
    Yeah, I'll admit that the negative or flawed Beta stereotypes used to make me feel rather badly about myself, and even lead me to believe that I am a bad person because I am Beta (as crazy as that sounds!). Because of those negative portrayals I didn't feel like I even identified with being Beta. :-/

    Too bad I don't care enough or feel like I have enough knowledge of Socionics to argue what I believe.

    based on the fact that he doesn't give Ni interpretations. I don't see him use it at all, really. He's not that abstract imo.

    lol.

    in other news, i havent read much of ezra's posts, but he is very reactive, and kinda reminds me of gilly in that way. I think I've seen him post in the style of making arguments and in demanding arguments.. i dont think i've seen it enough to say its strong or weak though. Seems like its in the mushy middle in the land of typing factors.

    Ni people are more contextually-oriented. They deal with ideas by shifting frameworks and whatnot. He seems more absolute.

    thanks, btw i wasn't saying anything about "abstract" being too .. abstract. Just laugh a lot at anything that could be seen as socially awk.

    But fair enough - are these not good representations of your idea of Ti?

    But fair enough - are these not good representations of your idea of Ti?

    Hmm, interesting point. Who DO you feel supervised by?

    I can't say I "feel supervised" by anyone on this forum.
    I don't know yet exactly how to quantify what the relation is. Stickam has helped a little, but nothing definite.

    I think I could feel "supervised" by liveandletlive, probably. I remember when she was describing her trip to Europe(?) and some of the problems she was having with her companions. She had some of the same desires that I would have, but she approached the solution in a... way that probably would have been a bit uncomfortable for me. Also, how she deals with printers that don't work. I'd have agreed with her, but... Basically, she seems like an ESTp with Fi. Or an ENFp with Se instead of Ne. Comprehensible yet scary. I'd agree with and like her enough that I couldn't resist her ideas and goals very well. At the same time, I think she'd understand me pretty well and probably like me well enough, too. Hm, that doesn't quite capture it but, oh, well. The conversation is about Ezra, not her.

    Anyway, I don't feel supervised by Ezra.

    My concept of Fi? It's rather hard for me to put into words, I'm afraid. I'm sorry if that sounds like a cop-out. I don't want it like that. Perhaps I will come up with something that works.

    But until then, maybe we can take other people's definitions, ones that I think aren't too far off. Joy's, for example:

    Are you confident in your understanding of your relationship with others? How about of other people's relationships with each other?

    Do you know who your friends are, Ezra? Do you know who likes you? Do you know who doesn't care? Do you know who loves you? And why? Is this something that comes relatively easily to you? Or is it foreign?

    There's more to Fi than that, but that's a start, I believe.

    But I am there and I see people's attitudes changing towards the SLE I know all the time, and I tip him off, "You're pissing off that person. You need to stop X action." And the SLE might be like, "Fuck, I don't care." (Because he is enjoying himself.) But then they react harshly to him and when he is confused and tries to write them off I can remind him. ^_^ Eventually he acquiesces my advice, but he doesn't like to feel controlled by rules and limitations on his forms of behavior, so it may take awhile.
    True. And, you're right, that's where people who are proficient in that can see what the case really is. And, I'd say from what I've observed that while Ezra has an idea of it that isn't too far off at times, he's still less than skilled at it. Certainly not as skilled as someone with Fi in the ego would be.

    See, I'll watch him (like I do others, btw) and think to myself, "Why is he being so open with that person? Sure, they're laughing and joking, but doesn't he see that person doesn't really care at all about him? That they can't be trusted like that? He's giving himself to the wrong people. Etc." (It's a very brief thought, though, and not usually in so many words - because I've long since learned that people rarely like hearing that type of stuff from me. They don't want to be hampered like that. It's their business, too, not mine.)

    Also... Gah! I was going to say more but I can't. Words aren't coming tonight.

    To be quite honest, I'm oblivious to that. I don't notice the feelings that fly between people at all. I know when someone is annoyed at me, because I can read how they're speaking to me etc., but generally, I have no conception of people's feelings towards me. You know this coloured ribbon shit someone was going on about a while ago; how Fis can sense the different ribbons between individuals? Well, that was incredibly far out to me; I had no idea what the fuck it was talking about. If that is the case with some people, then I am blind to it. In the words of a member of a ghetto, I ain' gaht no fuckin' coloured ribbons goin' between me and they. Waht iz dat shit, man!?

    Be more specific. Who are you talking about?

    FTR, I like it. Helps me get an insight into my character.
    Ideas don't determine who's right. Power determines who's right. And I have the power. So I'm right.
