Thread: IEEs and self-descriptions

    Default IEEs and self-descriptions

    “If I were to try to describe myself I might go on forever and still not be clear. Even though I know who I am, in some ways I find it hard to describe myself to other people because if I say one thing I automatically think of instances where I have or do behave the opposite way.”

    IEEs, do you identify w this?

    In a way. I really really hate having to describe myself. Generally because I get lost on tangents and then have to stop and wonder: "wait, is that really me? Nope, not really me, kinda me, though?" And then I'm several paragraphs in, not completed the "description" and yeah, I'm bored already. Let's talk about you, ok?

    I am not an IEE but I identify with that.

    The way I would describe myself might change on any given day, or even within the hour based on the mood I am in. Although my moods are pretty consistently good, hmmmm.... Except when they're not... HeHe

    Yeah. It's because how we are one minute, contradicts how we are the next minute. Very difficult to sum that up.

    I'd say ISTjs have the easiest time describing themselves.

    You don't care about IEEs, yet are asking questions about us? Weirdo.

    i think, if you ask to me to describe myself or IEE's in general, i would have a hard time giving you a concise response. but if you asked me specific questions (ie. how i act in relationships, what my work situation is like, who i like to hang out with) i could give you an answer without blabbing your ear off or getting distracted.

    Young and lost IEEs might have a problem having an identity but I suppose it goes away after you grow up.

    If I'm to describe myself in brief terms I'd say I'm a family/friends oriented person with intellectual interests and a deep passion for bettering the world.

    I see what you're saying Mikemex, but some people are also more complex than others. The more complex, the harder to describe.

    Nah, I don't think IEEs are really that complex. It's just that most like to delude themselves into thinking they are special when they are not.

    It's the poor grasp of Ti, I tell you. Ti is essential for giving clear, concise descriptions. IEEs just tend to wander when they describe something, because they focus on conveying their impressions instead of objective information.

    I was trying to think of a good way to explain how I feel, and I think the weak Ti explanation is the best. I might describe myself one way one day, and then a few days later describe myself in an entirely different and contradictory way, but it's more likely weak Ti than that I'm that terribly complicated.

    I guess it's the weak Ti. I think it might also have to do with the combination of weak Ti and Ne.
    I try to avoid describing myself. If I do, I always feel that I'm missing some part of me. Some days my self description will paint a certain picture and at others it will completely contradict it. That's why I don't think my self descriptions are reliable.

    I'm not an IEE (not extroverted...probably EII or IEI), but I identify with this a lot. I often call myself an anomaly because when describing myself, I feel it sounds inconsistent, yet I have consistent feelings/values. It's like, I can appear cool and aloof, yet I will also draw strangers to open up to me emotionally. It doesn't really make sense.

    I relate, very much so, and it aggravates me.
