Alright peoples, another person for you to type.
I'm getting fed up with having changed my type 100 times. I settled on LII with 95% certainty, but as I expected, that 5% has reared it's ugly head and is telling me "But... What if you're wrong?"
I feel that it's really important that I solidify my type first before continuing. I seem to try to use my type as a basis for understanding Socionics. When I start to doubt my type, my understanding of Socionics starts to crumble.
I've been reluctant to ask for typing advice on this forum. I guess mostly out of embarrassment. I feel like I should be able to figure it out on my own, and declare it confidently. But also, I feel I really don't know myself very well, and I usually avoid talking about my qualities.
I've "settled" on every intuitive type in the socion. I have never typed myself as an Se type, though sometimes I've considered Si types.
As I said, it's very difficult to talk about myself. I would feel more comfortable answering targeted questions because I seem to be unable to discern what information is pertinent and what is superfluous. But I'll try to give whatever I think is obvious.
I spend most of my time in my head. Unless something significantly interesting is happening, my thoughts will drown out reality.
I hate small talk. It seems backwards to me. I have to value someone's personality before I can care to know about irrelevant details like where they grew up, went to college, what sport team they like, what music they enjoy, how many kids they have, their take on the weather conditions, etc. I'll often just respond politely, choosing not to reciprocate the question in fear they'll answer it. But regardless, they often tell me anyway. Which makes me feel like they just wanted to talk about themselves in the first place.
I don't care about sports, unless I have a moderate bet placed. I don't like to classify myself or others by (Or take pride in) nationality and other things they had little to no choice in. I never judge people based on the music they enjoy, and I'm often irritated when people are ignorant to the subjective nature of music, literature, movies, etc.
It looks like I'm easily able to state things that I don't like, and what I don't like about them. But, I'm having a lot of difficulty coming up with things I do like and why. What I like is very... picky. I don't seem to understand the criteria with which I decide on things I like. I tend to like to solve things, and discuss ideas. But it depends on the things being solved, and the ideas being discussed. My mind gets fuzzy when I try to pinpoint these things.
With all of the above, I seem to be intuitive, negative, and democratic. Which narrows me down to ILI or LII. Both types are also logical, introverted, carefree, and obstiante. I can agree with these but not with certainty.
Leaving these dichotomies:
Static/Dynamic: No idea really, I have a hard time understanding the difference.
Interrogative/Declarative: Seems to depend on the situation and subject matter.
Tactical/Strategic: I don't thing I'm goal-oriented, but I'm not sure.
Constructive/Emotive: Both are kind of important me. Can't tell which is greater.
Rational/Irrational: Probobly irrational. Pretty flexible, can't decide on things, almost never finish anything.
Evolutory/Involutory: Don't know, depends.
Reasonable/Resolute: Probably reasonable, I'm pretty lazy, often take breaks, care more about working conditions
Subjective/Objective: Not sure.
I'm most confident about irrational and reasonable. LIIs are reasonable and rational, and ILIs are resolute and irrational. So obviously, I've done something wrong somewhere. If I take my weak confidence in being tactical that makes me an ILI. If I consider yeilding and tactical, that makes me an ILE and still fitting with irrational and reasonable, but makes me positive instead.
Please ask questions, as I said before I feel much more confident in answering questions than trying to pick out useful information on my own. Your help is greatly appreciated. Thanks for reading.
