Hey again people.
So upon further investigation of types, functions, information elements, quadras, etc., I attempted to read the Reinin dichotomies as a way of potentially figuring out my type... this totally confused me even MORE, however, as- after asking for VI help and getting pretty much unanimous ENFp and ENFj opinions- I was kinda leaning towards ENFp as my type...
Then I read more about the quadras, did the tally method for the dichotomies, and came up with this:
I chose farsighted, yielding, dynamic, emotivist, positivist, judicious, merry, result, and asking, and couldn't come to a decision on the democratic-aristocratic and tactical-strategic ones. This way, I had the most points for IEI. However, I also tried doing the method where you sort of highlight only the ones you feel really strongly about and for me, those were: yielding, emotivist, judicious, and merry. The only type that has all four of these is SEI (I think?). I'd never seriously considered that I could be a sensing type up until that point, but afterwards, I read up a little on the Alpha quadra and feel that I could fit in there as well.
I read about all the dichotomies on Wikisocion, so I don't know how reliable that is but it was all I could really find on them. Also, where's the best place to find out more about the quadras? I think determining which one I identify best with is going to be my best bet at this point, lol.
This stuff is seriously confusing. Does anyone ever REALLY know for sure (with absolutely no doubt/questioning whatsoever) what type they are?? Ahhhhhhhhhh I need help (help me? )! Well, if anyone could answer the above questions and/or give me some feedback on using the dichotomies to type oneself I would reaallllllly appreciate it. Thanks!
