First off, i joined this forum last night and am glad to have found a helpful socionics community. Awesome!
The reason I'm posting is that I'm having trouble typing one member of my quadra (I've typed myself as a gamma - SEE). The ESI continues to elude me. I keep thinking I have an ESI nailed, only to later figure out that I was pretty far off.
I THINK I might have one found.... can you tell me if you think he's an ESI?
examples of usual behavior:
I like to joke about stealing my friend's girlfriends a lot, even though I'm usually joking, I can play it off like I'm really serious and actually going to do it. Whenever I joke around like that in front of this guy, he gets very energetic and engaged in the conversation, saying things like
possible ESI: "there's no way they'll break up! it's not going to happen! you ever heard that dido song? 'you're not gonna get it'....yeah......"
my usual response: you might be surprised. I think she's into me dude.... I totally got this.
One of the main reasons I think he's ESI is that he's really one of the most non-intrusive friendliest people around, in day to day life. If your car was broken down 20 miles away, and you called him to help you, with him considering you two "friends", he'd be there ASAP with no questions asked. However, if you step on his toes in terms of where he stands with morals (i.e. the above example about stealing your friend's girlfriends), or talk shit about any of the people he considers his close friends around him, he will without fail get very confrontational and in your face defending them.... I think this represents creativity very solidly....
