    Default What's my type?

    Hello, I'm brand new here and would like to know more about my type. I'm an INFP in the Myers-Briggs system. Below is some info about me, please feel free to ask more questions if it helps.

    I'm a lawyer.
    I am drawn to the arts, especially playing guitar and performing music.
    I always buy a ton of books about a subject I'm interested in but rarely read them.
    I'm lazy except when I'm really interested in something, then I have a ton of energy for new projetcts. I rarely follow through with projects.
    I have a wide variety of interests, especially in things that are unusual and strange.
    I like fantasy / adventure stories and movies.
    I don't like conflict and avoid it if possible.

    I'll add more to this later but there's a start.

    Basically Archon needs to know if you're bangable or a dude, in which case it's sexual orientation reevaluation time.

    Yes IEI seems likely. The only thing that contradicts is your profession.
    The next best type might be ILI I guess.

    What subjects are the books about?

    What kind of lawyer are you? What parts of being a lawyer do you like or dislike and, most importantly, why?

    Give some examples of the things that have taken your interest in the last year or so. Why did they pique your fancy? What most interested you about them?
    But, for a certainty, back then,
    We loved so many, yet hated so much,
    We hurt others and were hurt ourselves...

    Yet even then, we ran like the wind,
    Whilst our laughter echoed,
    Under cerulean skies...

    Default PICS

    I have unrealistically high ideals. Here are some pics for the group's enjoyment. Anyone have a recommendation on the best website or resource to learn about the different types.

    Couple more things about me and I'm done.

    Reclusive - I tend to withdraw from people for periods of time and focus on music and have no desire to socialize.
    Humor - I have a dry sense of humor, like to say ridiculous things with a deadpan voice and wait for people to realize I'm joking.
    Competitive - hate to lose at things.
    Mildly Superstitious - want to believe in psychic phenomenon, astrology, etc. Actually do almost believe in synchronicity as a phenomenon.
    Relationships - quick to fall for someone, but tend to lose interest somewhat quickly.
    Thanks again, very interested to learn more about this system.

    Not really. Although when I was a younger I had a phase of liking to wear camoflauge and hide. Not to scare people though.

    What do you mean by "ideals?" Can you be more specific?

    He doesn't seem IEI. Seems way more alpha. Stop typing everybody as IEI. ARGGGGHHHH. We are unique and beautiful snowflakes. ;p

    SEI makes sense, based on the collection of everything you told us.

    And you VI as an alpha too, like hardcore.

    He doesn't seem IEI or SEI. He is definitely an Fi type, as far as I know.

    I'm 34. I relate much more to the IEI profile than to SEI, although there are some similarities. Based on the Wikisocion pages:

    Reasons maybe SEI:
    Anything new and novel gets alot of attention
    Do always feel in a rush / urgency, stressed/overworked, rush at the expense of quality
    Do respect people not tied to material things
    Do avoid people who demand perfection
    Do compulsively question / thirst for knowledge
    Can be annoyed by lack of social competence

    Reasons not SEI:
    Don't display inner state vividly
    Often think about the future at expense of the present
    Do read alot, but seldom about subjects related to daily lives; usually something completely random that catches my interest

    On balance the IEI profile is much more accurate for me.

    Mizami Test results

    Your result:
    IEE

    These types might also be considered:
    ILE
    IEI
    EIE

    These types are not very likely:
    SEE
    ILI
    LIE
    EII

    These types are quite unlikely:
    SLE
    SEI
    ESE
    LII

    These types are extremely unlikely:
    SLI
    LSE
    ESI
    LSI

    So does wikisocion, that's why I'm not surprised he relates to the IEI description.

    Default Verdict so far

    I can report, the IEE and IEI profiles available online are both very accurate for me. I'm leaning toward IEE being correct now. Both definitely strike a chord, but moreso IEE based on what I know so far.

    okay just so's ya know, those things are not helpful for typing/don't listen to fast food socionics bullshit.

    Do you think SEI's just read about mundane, boring-ass topics? An interest that peaks at "daily lives" has more to do with someone of average-sub par intellectual capabilities.
