1. ## test my Ti...

Please? Just start throwing stuff at me.

Thanks.

2. What sort of stuff?

3. whatever people think would be a good test of Ti...

4. Alright, listen up: Imagine a small lake in which you put some extremely fast-growing seaweed. You put in 1 unit of seaweed and it doubles it's number every day. After 10 days, the seaweed covers the whole sea bed. Now, how many days would it take to cover up the sea bed if you put in 2 units of seaweed at the beginning instead of just 1?

5. ^ a day less.

pianosinger, how do you feel about socionics and typologies in general?

sometime during the ninth day, the pond will be full... ?

okay, so I edited my answer (originally said 8-9 days), but I did so before I saw Aiss's post...

5. Should be obvious.

I've always found personality typologies to be fascinating. If there weren't already some good typology systems out there, I might have been tempted to try creating my own at some point...though thankfully, I don't have to go to all that trouble since the hard work's already been done for me.

The answer is 9 days, as it was said above. It's easy because with 2 units of seaweed, you just got the situation like it would have been at day 2 if you'd insert 1 unit.

see, you obviously didn't even bother to do the math...

well, he didn't manage to ruin it for me, thankfully...

And now it's obvious...but, I did it the hard way...

lol any type is capable of solving word problems

Anywho
There is no such thing as truth. All knowledge is subjective.

yes, but it's how one goes about solving it that matters...I had to labor with the math, but there was a much quicker way to solve the answer that I did not see...also, there's Aleksei's way, which was to not spend any time at all thinking about it, and just spouting off the first (wrong) answer that came to mind.

I didn't say otherwise. :wink:

15. I was not wrong. Let's look at that exercise again:

Bolded is the key word: Doubles. If it doubles, then you have a constant exponential progression by day 91, 2, 4, 8, and so on). If you plant to seaweed instead of one, for every doubling that'd happen for one, it happens again for the other. So you get exactly twice the amount of seabed area covered in the same amount of time, and by definition the whole area covered in half the time.

Savvy?

17. Um.

1 unit:

T0 = 1
T1 = 2
T2 = 4
T3 = 8

2 units:

T0 = 2
T1 = 4
T2 = 8
T3 = 16

etc.

Whoever stated that you're essentially just starting the GP one day later was exactly on the money.

Your mistake was assuming doubling the quantity was doubling the ratio between terms (which actually remains unchanged).

I hope you're following.

EDIT

If you want to know where you went wrong verbally:

This is no different from the initial case with starting quantity 1 unit of seaweed. What you're saying here is that doubling the initial quantity also doubles the rate of the seaweed propagating, which is false.

Do you understand your mistake now?

18. Here is my question to you Pianosinger:

If there was a village populated entirely by Delta quadra types, what would some neccessary institutions be? Please make a bulleted list with your explanations for each "institution".

19. D1: 1 seaweed
D2: 1x2=2 seaweed +1 from the previous day = 3 total seaweed
D3: 3x2=6 seaweed +3 from the previous day = 9 total seaweed
D4: 9x2=18 seaweed +9 from the previous day = 27 total seaweed

And so forth.

*Leadership. Probably run by the ESTj's, or some other strong D-subtypes.
*Activity planners. Probably run by a co-op of ENFp's and ISTp's.
*Relationship counselors/Matchmakers (not just romantic, but in all relationship spheres). Run by the INFj's, and maybe some ENFp's.
*Teachers. All four types, depending on the subjects being taught.

LOL - good one.

@Pianosinger: Find all socionic relations that commute with every other socionic relation. Example: my activator's dual is my dual's activator, so activator and dual commute.

Another one, adapted from Rick: Identify a common misconception about socionics, and explain why it is wrong.

Please tell me you aren't serious. I can appreciate it as fine-tuned humour, but no PoLR is an adequate excuse for that.

Uhh, yeah. Well, as Aiss said, it's not right. You don't have to do this addition, because you already got the previous seaweed within your doubled amount.

just comparison to other Ti types.

You're basically saying there is no objectivity in socionics. Out, heathen!

No, that was seriously the way I interpreted the problem when I was solving it *ducks* Of course I see my mistake now, but...if I can't blame it on PoLR, can I blame it on distracted mommy brain?.....

Interestingly enough, I still managed to come up with roughly the same answer...

That's because 3 is roughly equal to 2.

yeah I guess so...so, I was actually tripling the number each time instead of doubling...oops

No, you didn't triple it, you actually did it right in this matter. The mistake was that you added the previous amount to that you got from your doubling.

You:
1.) 1x2=2+1=3
2.) 3x2=6+3=9 ect.

the right way:
1.) 1x2=2
2.) 2x2=4 ect.

which is the same as tripling it

n + 2n = 3n

34. ...which works out to tripling it

35. ITT: the maths geeks converge in an unholy plague of numbers and reasoning.

36. plague?

lol, seriously. I'm an idiot. Remember what I said about being wrong? It's true.

Well, that's why I'm not Ti-leading. I'm not even valuing it.

39. Nah, it's maths.

One of two possibilities:

Mistakes are more obvious because they're unambiguously wrong.
It's easier to make those mistakes in the first place because maths is mentally taxing.

Yeah, go do some biology
