    Default From your point of view...

    Do I change my mind a lot or is it just the perception of a few that are distorted (I actually don't really change my mind)?
    Ideas don't determine who's right. Power determines who's right. And I have the power. So I'm right.

    I think the fact that you made this thread is ample answer to your question.

    I voted for the last option about reversing your position. This is essentially the basis for my speculation of you being a counter-phobic 6.

    And fwiw, I'm leaning towards that e-type over 8 atm.

    all of these options are too simplistic.

    I think you have a few "core" ideas, even principles, about which you don't really change your mind much. On other subjects, I think you probably do change your mind rather easily - but I couldn't say whether it is "too easily".

    Eh, you change your mind on some things, but not on the basics, I think.

    I don't think it's that you "change your mind" too easily, but that you think in these tentative little Ti "snippets" that you don't really take too seriously, but at the same time present in an intense way that makes people think you do. So when you discard one of these "snippets," it seems like your core belief foundation is erratic.

    My guess is that your "core" beliefs, the ones which aren't really up for debate, aren't brought up very often, because their immutability means there really isn't much perceived point in discussing them, and you find it much more stimulating to debate over your more loosely held ideas.

    Ahhhh! I see.

    Yeah, I would agree with that. It's not so much that I believe these things with complete dedication and then suddenly turn my back on them (I know I said it was, but that was for lack of a better way of putting it); it's that people think I am totally dedicated to an opinion because I'm so forceful with said opinion, only to recognise that I suddenly don't care any more.

    Ok, this makes sense.

    I definitely didn't read the first post before voting...

    But yeah. I think you change your mind often, which is not in itself a bad thing since it's usually an improvement. What kind of bothers me is that you will assert whatever you believe as if it's the only thing to believe, and anyone who believes the opposite is an inbred fool, even after you just believed something completely opposite three minutes ago. I recognize that's just your style, though.

    I think this is a good point, one which Ezra should heed.

    And it only supports the SLE typing lol.

    You didn't include the option "Depends. My answer to this question changes."

    How or why does it change?
