For a long time I've been fairly sure that I was IEE. However recent self analysis and observing other so-called IEEs has resulted in me being not so sure.
The types I've generally considered as possible if not entirely plausible are:
However in this thread Pinocchio posited that I could be LIE. Which I, despite my hostility towards Pinocchio in that thread, found interesting.
So I definitely want some external opinions. As I'm definitely not sold on IEE anymore.
I don't consider myself adept at typing people. So I can't really scrutinise my real life dealings with others. Unfortunate as I think would be the real tell.
A little bit about me: I currently work for myself as a developer / designer. Mainly web development. I specialise in the coding and the aesthetics. But I'll be moving out of this as I'm finding the work/reward (ie money) ratio is tipped too far to the work side. Not that I don't love the work but have definitely found myself to be driven (long term) by the reward side.
Currently I'm on major burn out, having worked the last two years pretty much 12-14 hours a day. So much so that it's just recently compromised my immune system. Doc says I need to take it easy for a couple months, which I won't do. Heh.
I've constantly jumped from one job to another and have always put in huge amounts of work. I love coming up with new project ideas but am always driven to improve old ones. I've stayed in the same general industry however I've used each job (usually outside of my assigned responsibility) to improve and gain experience on new aspects of it. I always leave once I've exhausted all possibilities; rarely do I have the patience to wait for promotions and instead "trade up" to another company.
I'm not a particularly neat person but can & do force myself. Though honestly if I didn't bring people back to my place I would probably be a lot slacker. I can become a bit of a slob when depressed.
Romantically I can identify with both victim and infantile, and can't really decide which one accurately describes my "romantic style."
I think I dress pretty well. Look damn good in a suit.
Rarely do groups of friends (but unfortunately it can be a bit of a necessity) -- instead preferring the company of one or two friends. In saying that, I love being the outsider in new groups, most often preferring to be new in a large group of people. I definitely enjoy that dynamic.
That's all I've got for now. Any opinions/flames would be appreciated.
