I thought I'd make an introduction here, even though I don't care to understand the reasoning behind doing so (does anyone even care about introductions? Does it give people a reason to feel needed?) I am relatively new to Socionics. I have spent the last few months looking into MBTI, and so have decided to delve further into it all by checking out Socionics. I took the test (I rather enjoyed the sliding portion of it, but the pictures threw me off; I assume Socionics actually takes into account physical traits? If that is so I have a long face with an established wide forehead, and a narrow-but-round chin) and came out as ILI-1Te (INTp). I have absolutely no idea what this means apart from what the results told me (I guess I have an abstract meaning, but I'd like to know more) and I already feel an obsession to find out about Socionics and what this result means. In MBTI I have always tested INTJ (I have undergone probably 10 tests, from as many different authors as I could, in order to try to verify accuracy, as everyone knows that the tests can be entirely subjective and inaccurate) and have studied up on the cognitive functions. I have never been truly satisfied though, as I believe MBTI has gaping flaws and seems rather constrictive in its analysis. I have harbored doubts about my type, and I am willing to admit that I am terrible at self-analysis (when a Socionics test I took mentioned that I should choose traits that others would see in me...How would I know how others see me???) I am good at studying all but myself, simply because my Se function is rather terrible and I am always stuck in my head. In Enneagrams, I have fallen on Type 5, although even that may be up for further analysis and investigation. It is the closest I've come to in self-application of Enneagram Types. I am male, in my early twenties, and I enjoy reading and being on my computer. I admit my range of activities...is lacking. I've conducted extensive research into the local area in an attempt to find other things to engage in, but nothing meets my criteria. I'm not an outgoing person anyway, so I don't get emotional about it or anything. I think that is it. I'm not writing my autobiography so I'll end it here.
