    What is "mastering"? What is "foreign"? What is the colour of the soul?

    I'm not quite sure how to answer this. I know enough spanish that if I went to a spanish-speaking country, I could not die. Meaning that I'm mildly conversant, and pretty good at writing it. But I would count it as "mastered" by any means.

    I'm IEI (at least for the foreseeable future).
    Not a rule, just a trend.

    IEI. Probably Fe subtype. Pretty sure I'm E4, sexual instinctual type, fairly confident that I'm a 3 wing now, so: IEI-Fe E4w3 sx/so. Considering 3w4 now, but pretty sure that 4 fits the best.

    Yes 'a ma'am that's pretty music...

    I am grateful for the mystery of the soul, because without it, there could be no contemplation, except of the mysteries of divinity, which are far more dangerous to get wrong.

    So I don't see the point of probing for intuition vs sensing.
    Foreign languages were generally my best subject in school, and I feel I've done quite exceptionally at Japanese.

    I took spanish from like 2nd grade all through my junior year of high school. I can speak a little, but definitely have not mastered it. To be fair, spanish class pre-highschool was a joke. I hate it, but it's probably because of how shitty my elementary spanish teacher was.

    I still voted yes before reading the post, but I feel, like compared to most people, I "master" Latin as well

    I can't respond in Spanish, but my response is I don't feel like it.

    My opinion on learning languages? I think any type can learn a second language, its all about approach and interest. Trying to get me to learn a language with a communication focus is a waste of time because I find it annoying and repetitive. Learning a language with a grammar and structure focus is much easier. Learn the rules, learn the pieces and then it's like solving puzzles. This is why learning Latin was fun. It's a dead language so no one learns it for the purpose of communicating. Instead they teach you the rules to the game of "translating Latin".
