    Default Type Me

    I would describe myself but since I'm not completely familiar with socionics yet that would probably result in me giving you guys a bunch of irrelevant information. You guys know the right questions to ask to figure out someone's type. Would you mind asking me those questions? Thank you. I appreciate it.

    Just write a little about yourself... what traits define you? what traits d'you appreciate in other people? what traits annoy you in other people? what traits annoy you in yourself? And so on.

    Well there's a very joke-y atmosphere that I wasn't expecting. My opinion is that a few jokes here and there are ok but when it gets to the point where nothing is taken seriously then it needs to be toned down. I actually really like jokes and that sort of mixing play with work atmosphere or throwing in a little light-heartedness to ease a serious situation but not when it takes away from the discussion or things like that.

    Okay well I do know a little bit about socionics now becaue I did some research. 8 functions. 16 types. Model A. HA. PoLR. Etc. However, I still don't know enough to type myself. I'm working on answering Sabo's questions...
    I'll be back with answers eventually.

    Why do you say that?

    I'm sort of regretting what I said. I don't want people to be afraid to joke in my thread. As long as there's serious posts along with the joke posts I don't care.
    I think they say less, in theory. This said, I can be very verbose once I get comfy; but my intros on forums are very short.

    That's cool. I hope you find your type soon.

    The theory is that they talk less. Does this always ring true? I don't know.

    I can never make up my mind and I'm really indecisive. I edit my posts often.

    Does that say anything about my type?

    That was fast. I didn't even have to write anything substantial and already people have come to the conclusion of SEI. I'll try it on and see how it fits. From the looks of it it seems a little to bland and soft for my taste but we'll see how this goes.

    Yeah, if you're comfortable posting it, the more information out there, the clearer the picture will become. IEE is definitely feasible, as the only thing I'd be very surprised about right now is you not being Ne/Si, and I think IEE would be the most likely delta type, although it's hard to be sold on delta > alpha just yet. Either way we're just grasping at straws knowing so little about you. Of course, there's no real rush to be sure about your type and it will probably happen organically with time if you let it, so no pressure.

This sensitivity makes the IEE very choosy of social situations -- whom to interact with, what group to hang out with, how much time to spend with which people, etc. IEEs are likely to vocally criticize social atmospheres that they regard as strained, stifling, or stilted. IEEs tend to comment a lot on people's personalities and social situations and share insights on possible causes of people's relationships, behavior, and life strategies -- even if no one asks for this insight.IEEs have a penchant for one-on-one communication with intense sharing of insight gleaned from one's life experience.
    That's interesting. I thought EVERYONE was aware of and sensitve to social awkwardness. Well I'm definitely aware of it although sometimes I tend to be the cause of it.

    I am really interested in people's motivation. I do get hunches about people's *real* motivations but I've never gotten the chance to confirm/deconfirm my hunches so who knows... I could be way off with these hunches. Well actually that's not true. I know I was right about a least one person. With eryone else I didn't get the chance to find out.

    When it comes to sensitivity to people's feelings I suppose I am. Compared to most other I think I am. Still though, I can be oblivious to others feelings sometimes. I guess it just depends.

    I <3 and need spontenaity like you would not believe. I would die without it.



    [edit] 1. Extroverted intuition
    IEEs easily become enamoured with new ideas and prospects and tend to start working on them immediately, almost impulsively. The tendency to be preoccupied with yet unrealized potential makes it hard for them to bring existing projects and situations to full completion and materialization. It is easier to start something new than finish something old. When instilled with a sense of opportunity and novelty, the pace at which IEEs begin new undertakings can be almost frightening.
    Basically all of that is 100% true.

    IEEs need to have quite a bit of free time available to investigate new opportunities, ideas, insights, and people that come along their way. Somehow they manage to keep pursuing these things even when they are overloaded with work and responsibility.
    I get bored. I always need something new.

    [edit] 2. Introverted ethics
    IEEs are naturally sensitive to mood, atmosphere, and feelings. They rarely say or do anything that would worsen people's feelings, preferring instead to distance themselves from people and social situations that produce negative feelings. IEEs are naturally skilled at regulating the degree of emotional intimacy between people, which can mean being businesslike (yet polite) as well as warm and inviting.
    No, I don't like hurting people.....too bad.....muahahaha. Ok jk. Serioulsy though, who does? Are there normal people that don't care if they hurt people? I'm not talking about being a little annoying or something like that I'm talking about really hurting someone.

    Not sure about that last sentence.

    When faced with a sad individual, the IEE will usually try to understand what is wrong, and will often try to coax the individual with kind words and actions. The IEE often displays a straight face even when faced with strong negative feelings.
    Heh I try but it doesn't always work.

    I've never seen my face in those situations so dunno about that face bit.

    Always on the IEE's mind are the feelings of his or her friends. If the IEE does not know whether an individual is feeling good or ill will, the IEE will prod the individual until he or she displays their attitude.
    No. I don't really prod. I do observe though.

    IEEs are concerned with the opinions and feelings of those around them and try to avoid saying things that would cause arguments and bad feelings. He does this effortlessly.
    Well I suppose I don't like starting wars.....unlesss I'm bored.

    [edit] Super-Ego block
    IEEs are skittish about any sort of long-term membership in relationships, groups, or organizations which would imply certain duties and limitations on their freedom. They worry about being trapped in binding relationships where there are rules and demands on them that — in their opinion — would squelch their impulsive, freedom-loving search for new and interesting things and people to experience. They can overreact even to minor rules that don't affect them — just as a matter of principle.
    Yes.

    Therefore, IEEs prefer to gradually ease into their relationships (whether formal or informal) by simply seeing what results when they let themselves be guided by their curiosity and natural interest level. They don't like to think about what others or "the system" might expect from them. They avoid clearly defining relationships, responsibilities, expectations, etc. and frequently feel threatened and overly rebellious when other people try to establish bounds and limitations that would affect them personally.
    mmhmm.

    I haven't found anything. IEE is definitely plausible. Apparently SEI is also plausible. I'll respond to the SEI wiki description later.

    Of course you are. Us ENTj - Si subtypes are a rare breed. So rare that we don't exist.

    A lot of your thoughts about the IEE wiki seemed just to confirm Ne valuing quadra (alpha/delta), although some might point towards IEE, and others might not. It's dangerous just to go off that though because of the Forer effect. A lot of the type descriptions are a little more specific than functional preference strictly implies, too.

    It might be better to try picking between 2 options, so which of these sounds more like what you prefer: Alpha or Delta? Fe creative or Fi creative? EP or IP? I think getting this specific is safe, or at least it seems highly likely to me that you're alpha or delta, irrational, and slightly less but still likely to me that you're ethical.

    That was fast. I didn't even have to write anything substantial and already people have come to the conclusion of SEI. I'll try it on and see how it fits. From the looks of it it seems a little to bland and soft for my taste but we'll see how this goes.
    Well, it's a mistake to think of SEI as necessarily soft or bland, unless your definition applies only to the functions and not aspects of actual personality. Wit, intelligence, talents, etc can manifest in any given type. You'll find incredibly gifted SEIs and you'll find boring SEIs, the same as any type. Basically, if you find them soft/boring because of Fe valuing, it might be an indication that you're delta. If you think they're just one dimensional dullards that have no depth beyond oblivously happy, you might be influenced by stereotypes and not actually thinking about SEIs at all haha

    Very good. BurntOrange gets a +1.
    It might be better to try picking between 2 options, so which of these sounds more like what you prefer: Alpha or Delta? Fe creative or Fi creative? I think getting this specific is safe, or at least it seems highly likely to me that you're alpha or delta, irrational, and slightly less but still likely to me that you're ethical.
    I get an ethical vibe very strong from Robot myself. But I will say that Robot complimented one of Expat's posts in the Fe thread, when I myself saw it as less than optimal.

    Oh? And why is it that you get a strong ethical vibe from me?

    And yes of course. Conflictors don't compliment each other. Ever.
    BTW that comment was more on Expat's posts in general than on that particular post although I do think he hit on something important in that post.
