    Arrow Type You

    Answer these questions and I will tell you your type

    Do you tend to notice the way things fit together or the way things stand apart?

    When you engage someone you don't know in conversation do you relax or
    become tense?

    When something is hard for you are you more inclined to relax or more inclined to become tense?

    Is it easier for you to catch on to something as it is happening or to make something fit within a context?

    Do you prefer to become acquainted with your surroundings or to verify them according to a designated scheme?

    Catch on as it is happening.

    Hard to say. I kind of ignore surroundings for the most part. Slightly lean toward getting acquainted with them. I have no designated scheme.

    the test typed you all the way to SEI or EIE, unfortunately due to a small misunderstanding in the question it gave EIE as the final answer, so I modified it a little bit...

    My responses are bolded.

    Do you tend to notice the way things fit together or the way things stand apart? (Hard question. Both to some extent. Weakly a)

    When you engage someone you don't know in conversation do you relax or become tense? (Mostly the second )

    When something is hard for you are you more inclined to relax or more inclined to become tense? (definitely the second. I have low frustration tolerance)

    Is it easier for you to catch on to something as it is happening or to make something fit within a context? (moderately b)

    Do you prefer to become acquainted with your surroundings or to verify them according to a designated scheme? (both, but more b again)

    1. Fit together
    2. Become tense.
    3. Become tense.
    4. Fit within a context.
    5. Hard to say, but I'll go with "become acquainted with my surroundings".

    I'm not sure I understand this question to answer it properly.

    Quote Originally Posted by Huitzilopochtli View Post

    I suppose it depends on the context, but generally I'd say relaxed. Though I used to get tense when I was alot more antisocial.

    Quote Originally Posted by Huitzilopochtli View Post

    Hard to tell. Stress and pressure tend to have the effect of sending me to this detached, aloof state where I become an observer in my own mind.

    Quote Originally Posted by Huitzilopochtli View Post

    Definitely the former.

    The former again.

    Both, but usually how they fit together.

    When you engage someone you don't know in conversation do you relax or become tense?
    I relax, usually. Unless the situation is like, real awkward, but usually I'm comfortable around people.

    When something is hard for you are you more inclined to relax or more inclined to become tense?
    Tense up. Who the hell finds difficult situations relaxing? o_0

    Is it easier for you to catch on to something as it is happening or to make something fit within a context?
    Fit within a context.

    Do you prefer to become acquainted with your surroundings or to verify them according to a designated scheme?
    Verify them (assuming I notice them at all).
    What do these signs mean—, , etc.? Why cannot socionists use symbols Ne, Ni etc. as in MBTI? Just because they have somewhat different meaning. Socionics and MBTI, each in its own way, have slightly modified the original Jung's description of his 8 psychological types. For this reason, (Ne) is not exactly the same as Ne in MBTI.

    Just one example: in MBTI, Se (extraverted sensing) is associated with life pleasures, excitement etc. By contrast, the socionic function (extraverted sensing) is first and foremost associated with control and expansion of personal space (which sometimes can manifest in excessive aagression, but often also manifests in a capability of managing lots of people and things).

    For this reason, we consider comparison between MBTI types and socionic types by functions to be rather useless than useful.

    Depends on what I'm looking at. Stand apart, I guess.

    Quote Originally Posted by Huitzilopochtli View Post

    Relaxed I suppose. I tend to be pretty natural around other people, so I don't feel a great need to tense up in those situations.

    Quote Originally Posted by Huitzilopochtli View Post

    Tense I guess. Things that are difficult naturally require some sort of heightened concentration, and I can't get that sort of concentration without riling myself up.

    Catch on to something as it happens.

    Tense, but mostly guarded.

    Depends on the situation, my mental/emotional state, and the type of hardness. Sometimes I become tense, other times I become energized and stimulated.

    Quote Originally Posted by Huitzilopochtli View Post

    The first one, I think.

    I don't understand this question. Too vague/non-specific.

    i see the context of things around me very easily and am very sensitive to it, i don't think i force anything to be into a context it doesn't belong to though.

    Fit together.

    When you engage someone you don't know in conversation do you relax or become tense?
    I'm tense even at the thought of engaging someone in conversation. I'm relaxed once immersed in it, though.

    When something is hard for you are you more inclined to relax or more inclined to become tense?
    Tense, stressed, mobilized. I like the last term best.

    Is it easier for you to catch on to something as it is happening or to make something fit within a context?
    Catch on to something.

    Do you prefer to become acquainted with your surroundings or to verify them according to a designated scheme?
    To become acquainted with my surroundings.

    My answers in order:
    1) The way things fit together (Less confident in this than the other answers, so if you could let me know what the result would be with this answer switched around I would be very appreciative).
    2) I become tense.
    3) I become tense.
    4) Catch onto something as it is happening.
    5) Verify them according to a designated scheme.

    Thanks in advance. Just curious are these your questions or did you find them somewhere?

    Relax
    Tense
    Context
    Acquainted

    that is what i was getting at. if there is an inescapable appropriation that is required in the act of understanding, this brings into question the validity of socionics in describing what is real, and hence stubborn contradictions that continue to plague me.

    both.

    become tense?
    tense.

    When something is hard for you are you more inclined to relax or more inclined to become tense?
    if I want to do it well, I make myself relax if I'm not. The trick is to forget about yourself, and focus only on the process at hand. Physical, gross-movement tasks, and mental tasks, I automatically relax into without effort. It's the fine-motor tasks (very small rapid movements) or quick-fire pressured mental calculations, that I have a tendency to tense up on, and have to make myself relax into. You're fighting yourself if you tense up.

    Is it easier for you to catch on to something as it is happening or to make something fit within a context?
    I tend to process things after the fact. I take them as they come at the moment, and then later think through it and sort them out. So, catching on to reasoning, meaning, or greater impact usually escapes me until I review it all later.


    Do you prefer to become acquainted with your surroundings or to verify them according to a designated scheme?
    I don't know what this means.

    Tense, but mostly guarded.

    Depends on the situation, my mental/emotional state, and the type of hardness. Sometimes I become tense, other times I become energized and stimulated.

    The first one, I think.

    I don't understand this question. Too vague/non-specific.
    1. N/A - the correct answer for ISTp would be apart because it implies immediate knowing and reluctant understanding which designates thought
    2. Sensing - tense communication indicates decisive extroverted perception
    3. Reasoning - tense conflict engagement indicates decisive superego
    4. Carefree - you are not too busy assimilating your life plan to notice seemingly unimportant happenings
    5. Serious - this did not already fit within your schematic of knowledge, so you followed your instinct of intuitive declaration and did not bother to understand it, plus you say you did not understand

    sensing + reasoning + carefree + serious = SLI

    Thanks for the vote of confidence, anyway

    The only problem I have noticed is that #4 might imply process rather than carefree and this may have caused C-Pig to look LIE rather than ILI

    Interesting; I was just going to ask how you arrived at these answers. I've never been typed EII before.

    If I had answered "verify them according to a designated scheme" on #5, as I almost did, would my result have been LII? Or have I misunderstood how it works?

    sorry I totally messed yours up, you were supposed to be , so I might assume you were dozing off when you took this test (as I must have been when I graded it)



    1. Fit together - feeling
    2. Become tense - sensing
    3. Become tense - reasoning
    4. Fit within a context - farsighted
    5. Become acquainted - understanding



    1. apart - thinking
    2. relax - intuitiing
    3. tense - reasoning
    4. contextual - prudent
    5. acquainted - understanding

    so you should have changed your first 2 answers, though I assume IJs may have had trouble taking a face-value, IP-geared test such as this; I tried to be very literal and leave no room for interpretation, and based on answers given so far I was able to type Squark, Mariano Rajoy, Parkster, Ashton, laghlagh, and A Little Birdy to the type in their signature, and I also suspect some of the others I typed were correct as well...

    Wow, you and Absurd are my dualz!

    Not that I mind my new label, but I find it fascinating that by (2) SFs should be "tense" talking to someone and NTs "relaxed". Not that it's directly bound to Feeling and Extraversion, but I strongly suspect a significant correlation. Extraverts by definition find initiating contact easier, unless you reject this entirely. Even more importantly, Fe-egos tend to be most at ease communicating. (3) looks like judicious/decisive, though I wonder if you or I misinterpret it, since both are mobilized in times of activity or dealing with obstacles, it's the how that differs. Additionally, effect of (2) and (3) together makes Si-egos fit the answers for tense, regardless of rationality/irrationality. (4) would fit better for dynamic/static difference, in my opinion, though I'm not at all sure if it would even work for that. (1) I could somehow see working as process/result, or possibly static/dynamic again, although it'd require more research, but (5) is most surprising. How would Ti/Te valuing affect it, in theory? I would sooner guess at rationality or even an aspect of static/dynamic once more to be at work here.

    I don't mean superficially, as in being tense to avoid possible judgments, but when you address others do you focus externally () or internally (), it does not presuppose liking someone or liking yourself, but simply addressing someone as though half-asleep. Also, -base types are usually pretty tense when I meet them, they are practically forced to relax by the flow of information. Is absurd ILE? I suspected he was...#3 represents superego-based activity, a superimposed linear vector with negative magnitude, assuming you were already tense or relaxed as quadra valuing would dictate. You lost me after that with temperament talk, but if you have different opinions you are free to write your own test and see how many people you can type correctly...specifically #4 picks up on prudent vs impulsive behavior and #5 separates type by intuitive vs sense declaration, you obviously have plenty intuitive declarations, representing knowledge, but you seem to lack the ability to declare what can already be sensed, which amounts to understanding...I hope this helped!

    Then you failed at phrasing this question. It seems to amount to "are you comfortable initiating conversations or not", which is rather superficial by definition. FWIW I'm rarely not half-asleep, according to people. This doesn't change the fact I'm uncomfortable, nervous - and by consequence, tense - when I have to speak to them. Social anxiety or introversion is all you're going to get from this question.

    Also, -base types are usually pretty tense when I meet them, they are practically forced to relax by the flow of information.
    *blink* I think we understand something different by Si-base, then.

    No more than any other type.

    #3 represents superego-based activity, a superimposed linear vector with negative magnitude, assuming you were already tense or relaxed as quadra valuing would dictate.

    Not sure what you mean by 'temperament talk'. It's probably worth noting that judicious/decisive is affected by introversion/extroversion; the most reliable aspect of it I found is about relaxing before or during breaks for judicious types, and staying mobilized, working in bursts getting all done, for decisive types, along with the former being more aware of periods of tension and the latter of periods of relaxation (in particular, it's easier for decisive type not to notice when they're tense or stressed).

    I have no idea what (4) supposedly has or hasn't to do with prudent behaviour. Another failed question as far as I can tell.

    What do you mean by 'intuitive vs sense declaration'? Since you said 'serious' I thought you meant merry/serious differences, but if not, then how does it deal with sensing or intuition?

    Thank you for granting your permission for writing a test. Sorry of any sarcasm leaking out, haven't gotten used to my new type yet.

    I am serious, Huitzilopochtli, when I say that how you phrase questions is effectively what you ask, and knowing what you ask is the basis for any interpretation of the answers. Actually many issues in gathering statistical data from people come down to this.

    Thanks for the elaborate reply. I was curious how you'd respond to that.

    That's what I suspected it measures, process vs result. But I can see where you're coming from.

    Btw, your Ti is amazingly adaptable. You can make things fit together within any pre-defined system.

    I didn't look at any answer key or anything if you provided one, so I'm interested in your analysis.

    The way things fit together (though I think that also sort of implies that you notice when things stand apart, i.e., do not fit together).

    When you engage someone you don't know in conversation do you relax or become tense?
    I'm generally relaxed.

    When something is hard for you are you more inclined to relax or more inclined to become tense?
    Become tense.

    Is it easier for you to catch on to something as it is happening or to make something fit within a context?
    This question confuses me, because everybody observes something and then processes that thing, sometimes almost simultaneously. I'll just say making something fit within a context for the hell of it.

    Do you prefer to become acquainted with your surroundings or to verify them according to a designated scheme?
    Am I just interpreting these questions anal retentively? How can you verify your surroundings according to a scheme before becoming acquainted with them?

    I'll play too, even though I have no idea if you are just giving a majority their self-type to make your method look good . I'll assume you haven't done such a thing.

    Definitely fit together. That seems to be my mission in life. Kind of goes with my name too.

    Become tense.

    When something is hard for you are you more inclined to relax or more inclined to become tense?
    I think inclined to relax. I usually become initially tense, but then calm down and rationalize everything to what I need to do and accept that, for the most part.

    Is it easier for you to catch on to something as it is happening or to make something fit within a context?
    I don't know. It depends?


    Do you prefer to become acquainted with your surroundings or to verify them according to a designated scheme?
    Acquainted.

    The former.

    The latter.

    When something is hard for you are you more inclined to relax or more inclined to become tense?

    I don't understand this really. What do you mean by "hard"? I'll go with tense though I guess.

    Is it easier for you to catch on to something as it is happening or to make something fit within a context?

    Again very vague, but I'll choose the latter.

    Do you prefer to become acquainted with your surroundings or to verify them according to a designated scheme?

    The latter.
