I'm back home after spending 2 - 3 years in India. My home environment is toxic, which I always knew, and which I foresaw even back in Mumbai, booking my ticket.. like a certain dread at the thought of being in close quarters with my parents.
I've tried to use socionics to solve this problem. I've made my mom take the test several times over a span of like 3 years, and she's gotten every combination of type. In order, ESTp, ENTj, ESTj (MBTI test), ISTj, and then - wait for it - ENFp. The fuck?!? Observer effect, or something??
My dad and I have the heaviest, most tense relationship imaginable, the scenario of me being like "hey dad wanna take this test" does not exist in our world. He's awkward and easily intimidated and prone to bursts of anger.. INTj? INFp? ENFj??
My brother is IxTx, he gets INTp on the longer tests but also ISTj on the shorter ones. We get along fine.
In the small groups article, there is that ring of supervision group that is guaranteed to give all 4 people a headache after 10 minutes with each other. I don't think that's the case - when we're all together interacting it's much lighter. When it's just us at home, with 3 introverts trying to be left alone and my attention-needy mom trying to engage us one by one, it quickly becomes unbearable. I seem to have the least tolerance for it.
What's going on here??
