    Default Would you want to be another type?

    And why?

    I myself often wish I were an SEE, so I could get myself a nice ILI girl and spank her while having sex. Seriously.

    The good news is, you don't have to be an SEE to fulfill that fantasy.

    With an SEI for a GF, it will remain a fantasy.

    I want to be a different type in some situations, but overall I am quite content with my own.

    I want to be an LSE; I like that they can estimate the advantages of their actions and that they are usually right about their choices which makes most of them very very successful. I don't have the ability to do this.

    That would be like asking if I would want to be born of another race. While I have nothing against other races, I wouldnt want to change mine, and unless I have access to Michael Jackson's dermatologist, its a bit pointless to comtemplate it. Same goes for types.

    I'm happy with being a delta NF, but don't like the IJ temperament or Se polr at all. I guess I'd want to be an IEE, preferably Ne-subtype. By my experience they are really easy-going, spontaneous and fun to be around and have the energy/ability to go chase their dreams and fulfill whatever idea crosses their mind. With me it's like I have all these great ideas, but lack the ability to put them in action completely. I'd love to be good at initiating contact with new people, to travel a lot more than I do, live in different places, go hitchhiking in Europe, try plenty of new hobbies and activities and whatever, get involved in all kinds of fun projects and groups and learn all there is to learn about everything and anything! I try to do these things of course but organizing events/trips or even spending time with new people can be extremely exhausting and at some point (fairly soon) I just get stuck in an introvert loop and need to go home and sleep. So sometimes it feels like life passes me by.

    Agarina, I think what you describe is fourish. Fours are always on the lookout for whats missing in their lives, and usually its something that seems unusual, rare. Life passing you by seems like the fours typical self thought "when will my real life actually begin?" I know because I am too a four, and relate strongly.

    Yeah, sounds reasonable. I'd like to find a way to get over it somehow.

    I concur.

    Maybe sometimes I wonder how being an IP type would feel, in terms of approach to life.

    I have a similarly self-assertive response: Whatever type I chose, I'd be as awesome as ever, so it makes no difference.

    Seriously though, I like how I am and that's why I also like my type. I can see the qualities and strengths of others, but also their weaknesses. That's why I wouldn't want to change my type/my personality.

    People's happiness thermometers are set to about the same "temperature" their whole lives, though, according to neurological studies--meaning some people are just prone to being happier or sadder than others. In a way, then, sadness too can be innate (the way one's sociotype or enneagram type is, for instance, although I'm not familiar enough with the latter system.)

    I wouldn't say I'm depressed now, although I have gone through darker periods in the past. I've actually used that phrase before irl though ("waiting for my life to really begin") to describe how I feel about everything, constantly. It's more as if the world outside can't always "match" what I want of it. I have this incredible disappointed hunger to find the sheer "density" of experience just going about in the world and making real contact with it, in the same way that one can encounter an incredibly moving piece of art or a beautiful object and feel for a moment that the world is made of black magic. Sometimes I think the problem is myself and sometimes I'm scared it's the world. I think for that reason I'm drawn to people who are good at having adventures (good and bad adventures)--it's as if they can accomplish that thing externally that I can only accomplish internally, if that makes sense.

    I would like to try another sociotype. SLI and IEI in particular. I also admire EIE's--they don't need rest, they have this incredible ability to make a difference, and they're charming as hell.

    I'm happy with being a delta NF, but don't like the IJ temperament or Se polr at all.
    this this this that this. Im ok with NF, and delta NF but I would like to have a bit less teh "boring" aura IJ have, and like to have more confidence. And generally a more "harmonious" personna (Im not the most healthy EII, thought) and somewhat less creepy on certain side.
    Im not especially attracted for IEE change personnaly, those I know are too volatile even if funny. Moreover I would prefer to be sometime smth like IEI, ILE ^^, this could add some precision in my knowledge, and natural harmoniousness (if this word exist ??) of IEI, before returning my normal EII self.
    If only brief/situationnal type change was possible

    This is a four thing?
    this is more a neurotic thing than a four thing imo

    I'm also content with being delta, be it any other delta type. However, I would like to change some traits in myself I believe might be connected with my type - the fact that I have many ideas and I find it difficult to make them happen. Sometimes I feel as if I was in some kind of vicious circle. I know what should be done but I somehow lack the power or courage to do that . I would also like to have some more confidence and be more stable - not to worry so much, not to get depressed easily. Probably I just need to balance my N and F. EII seems interesting to me, I think they don't have such problems or they are not that developed.

    Can we agree that its a neurotic four thing?

    Edit: Im assuming, (and correct me if Im wrong) that you're saying this because you identify with it and you dont self type as a four. Just to clarfiy: I said it was a four thing, not exclusively a four thing.

    Yes, I'd like to try ESTp as well for reasons already mentioned.

    "His feeling that this world is not his Fatherland, and that it does not represent his proper condition, so to speak—his feeling that, basically, he 'comes from afar'—will remain a fundamental element which will not give rise to mystical escapism and spiritual weakness, but rather will enable him to minimise, to relativise, to refer to higher concepts of measure and limit, all that can seem important and definitive to others, starting with death itself, and will confer on him calm force and breadth of vision." — Julius Evola

    I want to balance my role and dom transforming myself into superior creature.

    Go ahead and say that I don't have any understanding of socionics or I am bound to fail.

    i dont really accept the premise of the question, cause its like asking whether you want to die. the moment you change something so integral to your existence, the current you stops existing.

    I don't know for sure what type I am, but I'm ok with whatever it is. ILE might be fun to try for a bit, though!

    anal implies that the remark was oblivious to the spirit of the question and irrelevant to it's answering. my comment was neither. i can't see myself turing into a completely different type of person and maintaining a cohesive sense of identity through which to recount the occasion afterwards. that is my answer.

    Dunno why anybody would want to be estp, might seem cool or w/e but yeah....you wouldn't wanna be sle. If I were to be a type, i'd probably want to be esfp, cause of their Fi. Unless of course, im just going through a phase...a very long phase.

    You should read your own reply again then. You said: "i dont really accept the premise of the question". A premise is an assumption that something is true. There is no assumption in my question, let alone this it states something is true. The fact alone that you seem to be looking for 'truth' in something, where none was implied, makes your reply pretty anal. Unless, of course, you don't know what the word 'premise' means.

    No, it doesn't assume you can change your type. If I could change my type, I already would have. The question was "Would you want to be another type?", just that, and nothing more. The question didn't assume you can be another type, and it surely didn't assume you can have your cake and eat it, too. These are things you added to the question, not me.

    You sound like Sheldon from the Big Bang Theory: you're not just anal, but also autistic.

    i scored almost 0 on the last autism test i did. maybe you should stop making ventured inferences about me cause you're obviously not very good at it.

    It is, by me.
    suit yourself. run with it. just leave me alone.
