So the majority of people that have typed me have me down as IXE. Immediately, people say I'm ENXp. Could ILE be a possible choice in addition to IEE?
I wonder about this because I was recently typed on MBTI as an INTP which means I suspect I have a much more logic analyzing side within me that I keep in my private life....
If I was to show my parents the two descriptions of the ENXp's creative functions:
Ti - "ILEs are obsessed with how things work, and how they will work together. Understanding how something works is merely the baseline for the ILE. When the ILE finds something new or interesting he thinks about how it could be used in conjunction with other objects he has come into contact with in the past."
Fi - "IEEs are naturally sensitive to mood, atmosphere, and feelings. They rarely say or do anything that would worsen people's feelings, preferring instead to distance themselves from people and social situations that produce negative feelings. IEEs are naturally skilled at regulating the degree of emotional intimacy between people, which can mean being businesslike (yet polite) as well as warm and inviting."
They would think the Ti description would describe me much more accurately. I would have to say I relate to the Ti description better too.
I have mentioned how I don't like to come by as obnoxious or an asshole, but I think part of it as to do with how I was raised. Always being told to be polite as I grew up...
