    Exclamation xLE :(

    Okay, I am 100% sure that I am an ExTp of somesort. But I can't figure out whether I am or leading...

    I've tried looking at the quadrant descriptions and both sound preferable for different reasons. I have also tried reading functional descriptions and even just rating the functions according to my use....and again, same use with different reasons.

    I think my behavior may be very dual-seeking, because I spend a lot of time flitting from activity to activity, then getting worn out and frustrated when none of them lead to any sense of...satisfaction. Then when I try NOT flitting, I just get depressed and angry because I'm not doing enough. Is this even Ni dual-seeking? Or is it every day people shiz?

    Yeah. I'm confused.

    EDIT: Thread title should be xLE not LxE...

    You could be SLE based on what you say.

    My advice is to talk to hkkmr - he seems to be considering the same thing. He started out as an ILE, but had some doubts, and suspects he could be an SLE. I think he's an ILE, personally, but talk to him, and maybe you'll resolve something between you.

    Alternatively, talk to all the SLEs on the forum, and talk to all the ILEs on the forum, and see who resonates more with you. It's normally easier to tell between two different base functions than it is to tell between two different creative functions (i.e. it's easier to decide between ILE and SLE than IEE and SEE).

    If that's Ni dual-seeking then I'm Ni dual-seeking defined. Sounds like 7 behaviour in general, lol.

    YES! Because whenever I've been in school or used to do swim team I was cool; even if I start to loose motivation because it's taking really long to reach whatever goal I have, there still is a point. It seems like I can't come up with these "purposeful" activities myself tho, which bums me out when I get to thinking about it.
