    Default Epic Pwnage of Ezra??

    All self typed IEIs and Betas, feel free to consider yourself "Delta pwn'd".

    "His feeling that this world is not his Fatherland, and that it does not represent his proper condition, so to speak—his feeling that, basically, he 'comes from afar'—will remain a fundamental element which will not give rise to mystical escapism and spiritual weakness, but rather will enable him to minimise, to relativise, to refer to higher concepts of measure and limit, all that can seem important and definitive to others, starting with death itself, and will confer on him calm force and breadth of vision." — Julius Evola

    You have been pwn'd by Ezra's blatant deception and ignorance of information metabolism/VI. Especially, considering he's just an immature, over-compensating Delta ST.

    Male EIEs don't typically assert themselves in the same way the LSE's normally do. Ezra has no creative- or leading- to speak of. Often time male EIEs appear to be irrational temperments (Joshua Jackson, JuJu), Ezra does not and VI's nothing like them IMO.

    You know, I have to admit that I have considered LSE for Ezra based only on the fact that I really like him and I don't usually respond that way to people with the whole Se + Ti thing. But that isn't necessarily a good way to type. But he is a really great guy. And sometimes he seems misunderstood and I feel like I do understand him, which could also point to us being in the same quadra. If I had a son his age, I'd want my son to be Ezra. I don't have a son. And I didn't start having kids till late so I don't have a kid his age. But I digress.

    On the other hand, he sure does have a Beta vibe.

    When he first came here, Baby swore he was LSE.

    I agree with Slackermom that Ezra seems like a cool guy.

    Historically, the most popular typingr for him are ENTj, ESTj and ESTp. As far as i'm aware he's gave serious consideration to all three.

    I think he seems a little different from Mercutio who I think is the most obvious ESTp on the forum. Counts for little really though.

    What I think is important is that one of the people who has met him quite a few times is Expat, and as far as i'm aware Expat is pretty sold on Ezra being ESTp from those meetings.

    Given that he has met Ezra a few times and that Ezra also thinks himself as ESTp, I think this should be given serious consideration to him most likely being ESTp.

    In the past I used to think he was ENTj, but that was a long time ago and I have nothing to contribute to the discussion now in terms of arguments for and against. I can't even be bothered watching those videos.

    I have however put down some background information which I think is worthwhile.

    Gawd, were you born without a brain of your own?

    Expat is NOT -valuing and thinks that is blocked with . Expat is blatantly LSE-Te as well. Albeit, a far more mature version than Ezra. Go check the official picture thread. Expat even VIs like Tim Russert and Natasha Mcelhone. Both textbook LSEs.

    Well, i'm smart enough to know Expat is an ENTj. But then if I really was born without a brain, I suppose I might be as equally dense as Expat who's also managed to delude himself into thinking he's an ENTj, which wouldn't necessarily be a bad thing.

    Also, Natasha and Tim, how can you be sure of their types?

    I'm pretty sure Expat is LIE. Though there's no reason why two Te-leading Ej temperment people wouldn't VI similarly, assuming Ezra really IS LSE. I don't put a whole lot of faith in VI anyway.

    I think you're nitpicking his words here. SLEs are not interested in controlling or even being part of every territory. He is only expressing his selectiveness, IMO. Gawd, is NOT about pissing on every telephone pole you see lol. One of the best things about it is being confident and assertive enough to be selective.

    And wtf?! Ignoring hierarchy is more of a Delta thing, no? My understanding of Beta is that it gives you the awareness to know who is in power, which means sometimes (at least temporarily), abiding by the current hierarchy as is until the timing is right.

    I'm pretty sure you couldn't find a single post of Expat's suggesting strong indication of /-valuing > /-valuing if you tried.

    Expat was almost utterly terrible at VI and had glaring misconceptions about the nature of . As many others still do. The very fact that so many self typed Delta's identify with and love Expat while he had such clear communication problems with Betas (/ ppl) is highly revealing of his true type as well.

    I don't put a whole lot of faith in VI anyway.
    That's because you don't understand it. Might as well have posted that you don't believe in half of socionics as well, if you're going to say things like that. Tomorrow I'm posting a VI Guide in Delta or General for the purpose of educating.

    Are you even aware that in one of his posts I linked, Ezra described leading- as unrestrained impulsiveness? This is exactly why I believe he is not -ego.

    "Ignoring hierarchy" itself isn't remotely quadra/type related. If there happens to be hierarchy, -egos, and perhaps Betas in general, are more adept at adapting to their unspoken roles through natural behavioral patterns.

    Delta's are more or less oblivious to silent social hierarchies and much prefer clearly delineated ranks before they're comfortable assuming their roles. Assuming hierarchy is going to be present at all.

    If you knew anything about demonstrative, you'd know that my use of it is a perfect example of how it occassionally manifests in SLIs.

    Nice way of using contradicting examples to try to prove your point. Make up your mind, is he impulsive or restrained?? I need to know which one of your many conflicting points to argue.

    "Ignoring hierarchy" itself isn't remotely quadra/type related. If their happens to be hierarchy, -egos, and perhaps Betas, are more adept at adapting to their unspoken roles through natural behavioral patterns.

    Isn't that what I said, pretty much? Thank you for rearranging my message then, I guess?

    Your beef is with the words 'carve' vs. 'earn', isn't it? What exactly is the difference? I don't think he meant earn in the sense you're describing, but Ezra himself can better speak to that.

    I'm not sure what impression my posts give, but I am perfectly calm.
    Of course you are coz you're a robot. haha j/k.

    Ezra erroneously views leading- as impulsiveness that needs to be "reined in" by . His EJ temperment impulsivity, which he falsely interprets as , (combined with his misconceptions of ) is in no way inconsistent with his desire for delineated "social ranks."

    I did not "rearrange" your message. You are the one who is completely incapable of putting two and two together. Leading- involves natural understanding of and adaptation into unspoken power plays/hierarchy in social interaction. Ezra desires this, but does not have it naturally. To achieve this desired effect, he actively promotes an image of himself as some kind of military leader/dictator persona for the purpose of establishing and clarifying his social "role."

    Is that really too complicated for your infant brain to comprehend?

    Ok, so DeAnte it seems like you are in a bad mood, despite you saying you're calm. You're insulting just about everyone here, and people just don't do that if they're in a good mood.

    If you are calm like you say, then I take it you aren't ISTp. If you are mad, then maybe you're an angry ISTp? I dunno. Maybe ISTj? I'm just not reacting to your posts like I usually do to ISTp posts.

    I'm seeing some problems here in jumping to conclusions.

    If Ezra chooses to not want to try to gain status in a certain Beta group, I don't see how related to being ESTp. You're saying all ESTps want to influence all Beta groups all the time, otherwise they aren't ESTp -- that's not correct.

    Just like I, as an ENFp, may not want to give out my Ne to anyone who wants it...I might only brainstorm w/ certain people when I want to. Does that make me not ENFp?

    Yeah, Deltas in general don't enjoy hierarchy as much as Betas. However, ESTjs do really like hierarchy. I don't think INFjs mind it that much either. I think it's mostly ENFps and ISTps who hate it. And even if that was the case, you can't generalize something like that and use it to prove or disprove someone's type...it just isn't enough information.

    People don't have to act like perfect cookie cutter versions of a type all the time, in order to be that type.

    I feel like you're taking one fact and stretching it out way to far to cover things that aren't related.
    Hi! I'm an ENFP. :-)

    jewels, for as long as I've been witnessing your utter lack of understanding of socionics and outright refusal to open your mind to include anything that isn't retardedly MBTI related, even while acknowledging that you should, I have attempted to maintain some modicum of civility with you..I'm sorry, but you're a fucking moron and you don't understand socionics.

    Remaining calm, neither activated or distressed, even while under "stress," would actually support an arguement for leading-. Dummy.

    If I were an Admin, I swear I'd make stupidity a rule violation and ban your from the board for life.

    "jewels" = socionic ass rape.

    I kinda agree with Jewels here.

    You know, what's weird, is today I met an ISTp I know for lunch. He's not long back from Brazil where he worked for a while. Anyway, we sat and talked for a while. Everything was very chill and relaxed and the coversation was no excessive emotion at all. In a way the coversation was a bit deep as we spoke about various life experiences and how we seem to have had so many similar things happen to us and how we react so similarly to things. Ha, he doesn't know about socionics and he thinks it's crazy how we have such similar views and outlooks.

    Thing is, it's *really* different from all this arguing and drama going on in this thread and other threads. ISTp's I know don't like insulting people, and they don't like being insulted themselves. Either you aren't coming across very well on internet or you are just in a really bad mood, but if you say you are calm then really it sounds more like ISTj behaviour to me than anything else.

    Something I heard my ISTp friend say recently when he was sort of snappy to someone, "look, just relax, we're just here to chill out and have a relaxing time". All this hammering of your opinions in your particular style (doing it by ridiculing people rather than even dryly making a point), not listening, insulting people, it would grate on our nerves if this was standard behaviour. In that situation, we'd really prefer it if you calmed down :-)

    Edit: just read your last post deante, ho hum.

    Leading- + creative- = attentiveness to emotional atmosphere and prioritizing the maintenance of social harmory. This is why you're SEI-Si. An -PoLR, won't disrupt the atmoshpere for the hell of it, but s/he will be far less inclined to care about maintaing it. Especially if it involves vocalizing strong opinions even while everyone else thinks s/he's an ass (-HA).

    Your boyfriend Expat came up with that one.

    Fe PoLR in ISTp's means they don't want emotions drawn out of them. It is the sensitivity to Fe they don't particularly like because it is their PoLR.

    ISFp's pay attention to the emotional atomsphere because they draw those emotions out by being cheerful, 'silly', encouraging people to laugh and display their moods by actions probably more than words.

    This is the difference which you don't understand in your quote from Expat. (if he said that, I don't know).

    Thing is Deante, and here's the kicker. Jewels and I are talking about real life examples of types and how we relate to that. You're just talking about quotes on internet about socionics and living with that very much on the forum. It's theory vs practical applications I think. Two different ways of communicating information, two different ways that the information is seen as, well, ultimatlely being useful i'd say.

    I thought his avatars were a joke! Sort of exaggerating the SLE image/stereotype?

    If DeAnte was LSI, I'd really like it to be honest.

    The insults he's come up with today are some of the lulziest shit posted since Nick became a sailor.

    So DeAnte, even if you're SLI, we like you here.

    Yeah Deante is an obvious SLI. Look at his video, obvious Te dullness (from Fe) and relaxed, slowed body stance.

    Also you are avoiding the debate by saying he's another Phaedrus.

    Many people dislike Phaedrus, so by calling Deante that you are attempting to garner support for your side and guilt him into submission.

    Please refrain from these propagandic techniques.

    I'm avoiding the debate because it's a Ti + Se debate. And I'm saying he's like Phaedrus because it feels exactly the same and it's just as pointless to get into a debate with him as with Phaedrus. It's not propaganda and I'm not trying to garner support. I think DeAnte is Beta ST. Other people can think whatever they want. Don't assume what my motivations are.

    Expat is an LSE. Ezra, I'm not so sure. We seem to conflict more than we dualize at any rate.
