when i first came across socionics, i couldn't pin down a quadra because there were aspects of each that i could identify with. there were also several descriptions that i could relate to. i remember looking at the flowchart on rick's page and deciding i was some INxx type (how i came to that based on the chart, i have no idea). eventually i settled on IEI as a type to "try on." then i started typing the people around me in my life. but the more people i typed the more obvious it was that i gravitated to deltas and avoided betas. i briefly considered the possibility that i was some kind of crazy and self-defeating IEI, lol, before deciding to "try on" EII to see if it worked better. and while there are some things about EII that i don't like (mostly what i see as incorrect stereotypes) i think it works better than anything else probably would.
what was the process for you? were you able to easily spot yourself in quadra descriptions? did any one type pop out at you immediately? did you try any wrong ones on first before this one? what sources did you use? what do you think about the idea of "trying on" a type versus holding out?
