Can I contribute?
I agree with IP temperament, except for being go-with-the-flow. Large changes I find disorienting, so I don't necessarily like them. But, yes, eventually things just smooth out and I'm where I am again, if that makes sense (it probably doesn't... uh, I mean, I feel reconnected with things, and that pleasant blurry feeling returns).
As for joining/starting threads, I tend to start threads because of how many questions I have (maybe more of a thing for SEIs than IEIs). That's lessened recently now that I have Brillsauce on IV drip.
