    In terms of socionics I have no idea, but it means you have an analitical mind! Or you were just analysing at that moment . Maybe N, cause it's a bit absurd, maybe T cause you were thinking.

Thus, do you see the glass as half-full or half empty? My rationalization for my personal view (half-full) is that the glass in it's natural state is empty. So, if I come across a glass (naturally empty) that has water to the half-line (has been filled with something), I see it as half-full. It has gone from natural empty to half-full.

    and , of course; that's your type, and you'll have some difficulty straying from it. for the definitions, for recognizing the basic nature of the states of the glass and preferring a unique answer. I suppose the is iffy; most of it is . is about a present state - a future state would be more of an thing. A process isn't really a dynamic thing unless your thoughts actually trace the process. Otherwise, a process is a type of state. I'm trying to dynamicify the answer, but I'm having no luck - I think the question would need to be rephrased from its "what do you call this particular state?" nature.

Therefor only 'half full' is a correct description. In 1 minute I've solved a century old mystery. I'm a genius. You all suck dicks. Bye. :-d
