I need help you guys, I've been obsessing about socionics for almost 3 years now. I have self-diagnose many types and I think I won't ever be sure of my self-diagnose for real unless I get help.Self-diagnosis pitfalls
Even with my in-depth dichotomy descriptions there is a chance for error. When people self-diagnose themselves, they go by what they think about themselves (their self-concept), which is not always completely in line with reality. In fact, sometimes self-concept can be grossly inaccurate. This seems to occur as a result of difficult family relationships or other traumatic experiences that forced one to develop compensatory behavior styles as opposed to developing his or her real strengths.
Even in the absence of traumatic experiences, self-concept is influenced by one's idols and by family values: is it "better" to be logical or ethical? extraverted or introverted? What are your role models like? Such desired traits influence self-diagnosis as well. People who diagnose their type on their own almost never reach unexpected conclusions!! This is one of the difficulties of psychological testing, and it is socionists' job to come up with tests and descriptions that minimize the influence of people's self-concept to the greatest possible degree.
Ideally, one should have contact with experienced socionists who can give qualified type diagnoses. Next, one should gain experience interacting with people whose types have been determined accurately to get a feel for intertype relations. It can be especially enlightening to get to know people of your own type. It is hard to understand socionics in isolation with only a bunch of texts to go by.
I will do whatever you guys want: videos, tiny chat interviews, tests..
Here is the list of the types I thought I was in chronological order:
First test ever: LII for a while
Then SLI for a short time
Then ILE for a while
Then EIE for a short time
Then ILI for a short time
Then IEE for a while
Then SLE for a short time
Then IEE again
Then ILE again
And now I believe i'm EIE again.
And I just made this test, taking my time, and got SEE, then SLI.
So yeah, no more self typing for me. Its all about you guys now.
