I have a practical test we could do of socionics that would be a learning experience for all. Yes, this might be faulty from the start and full of errors, but hear me out. And please you can joke on this thread, but I'm also being serious here so please respect that.
This is simple. I believe strongly in the textbook example that Conflicting relationships start out as you being interested in that person right away. But then once you interact more on a truly, deeper level you really begin disliking that person. Dual relationships are naturally the opposite. Both of you seem boring and bland as fuck with each other. But then as you talk more you get pleasantly surprised. As always, this will only work if I can trust people to 'be themselves' totally with me. So if you think that I'm your best friend or whatever just because I can make good gay jokes, get over that. You have to start seeing the whole person, and I in turn will have to show you it too.
This probably is going to bite me on my own ass, but I have an idea.
I want one person that's neutral of me and thinks that I'm boring (I know this might be difficult because I write well and kinda go out of my way to say interesting things but ugh just hear me out), and one person that really thinks they like me to come on me with Stickam.
Then we see if our 'true inner natures' line up through a series of questions with one another. We just have to be honest as possible. And be how we actually are, not how we wish we were or how we think we are. (But if how you naturally are is to be a wishful thinker than I guess, that would override things? =p) I do know for a fact though that both idealism and cynicism harms relationships. I'm not sure what these questions will be yet, as that's not my strong suit. But maybe, somebody else can think of something?
I think I've known people here long enough for this to work. Or no? Any input is necessary.
Again I want people that are kinda bland and blah with me and also people that really think they like me. Perhaps a spade is a spade. Perhaps the data I collect means nothing at all. Perhaps I am just a dork with too much time on his hands. But I've just have personally have been having bad luck with relationships, so I want to see if there's an art to what makes people click.
If you actively think you dislike me, you probably wouldn't want to try me on for size anyway.
I'm being realistic here. I'm looking for subtle nuances. I'm not looking to madly fall in love with somebody, or find a romantic relationship online. I'm honestly not trying to look for anything, other than trying to really figure out why people don't get along and why they do- which is what humans have been studying for like, ever. Perhaps we're all too smart to have 'real friends.' But, it won't hurt to try. Just this whole socionics shit is killing me because we're not really understanding or connecting with people at all here, but this is a tool that supposedly thinks it can help people do all that. If this is really as true as it says, it can go through a little testing. If not, then it deserves to be called the fraud and time-waster that it is, while we look for the next shiny thing that supposedly understands humans.
And this doesn't just have to be me and other people. It can be with all of us. It can be something we all do.
Or do you want to continue to just mentally masturbate all day? Do you not care about relationships at all and are here to just make fun of Phaedrus? That's okay too, but let me know. If you are interested, drop me a pm. And if not, don't sweat it.
