    Default If you could be any type...

    I think there was a thread several years ago like this that I actually contributed to, but I was bored and we have new members so I wanted to do it again.

    I'll go first:

    EIE E7

    charming as fuck, often pretty good at chasing their ambitions (or has potential to be), has way more energy and initiative than me it seems like

    often pretty smart and insightful

    Si-PoLR, but I actually don't think Si is necessary to get through life; plus EIE's often have well-developed aesthetic senses

    plus, they have the chillest/ coolest supervisors and benefactors ever who don't really give a shit what they do

    but i guess secretly i just want to curl up with an ILE, smoke some weed, watch some movie with an EIE in it... I guess I do like Si after all.

    What about you?

    They all have problems. They all have issues and they all have something about themselves that they have a hard time with. I would rather just stick with my own and learn a work around Te seeking and just be comfortable and live a comfortable life. I can always find things to love about people. We all love our seeking function. Secretly or not.

    I feel comfortable and good. I have a lot to contribute as my own type and I'm looking forward to the future.

    SEI, for their social skills and ability to relax. I agree in principle with Maritsa, though, all the types have their strengths and weaknesses, and we all love our suggestive function. Speaking of which, I'm an IEE and I still don't really get what suggestive Ne is supposed to be...

    Default types are defined by people, not the other way around

    Typism is stupid. Having said that, walking towards SEI sounds good for me. I recall a Gulenko article, an instruction manual of sorts, on how to supposedly accentuate functions. Definitely worth a shot. If/when I think of anything myself, I'll be sure to write it out.

    IEE (sx dom). They have all my strengths, but also higher energy levels and flexibility and the ability to actually function in the real world.

    Delta ST (sx dom) would also be super cool. I'd sure be the laid back alternative type and not a work-obsessed businessperson a lot of people tend to see them as (I've never met one tho). But the idea of being so dependant on others in emotional/relationship matters sounds scary.

    Not so much socionics but I'd like to be more socially extroverted. I think it would make life more fun and help me to be more successful and effective.

    I want to try being iei sx4 for a week or two cuz I imagine them experiencing daily life the same way I experience art or music and there always being a sort of ecstasy. Or like they are in on a secret I'd want to discover and then come back.

    a type without a PoLR.
    oh, they don't exist right?

    in such a case the type that seems to care the least about their PoLR and in general just "marches on" - SLE, Chelsea Handler style, just for a week, cause in general I'd rather stay myself blah blah... but being her for a week would be sooo much fun!

    oh, and whatever type is Lara Croft's character - I'd like to be that type for another week, too

    I have one, and yes, SEis are really sweet. But they lack one important quality: they are not submissive at all. So to compensate, I fantasize about ILI women a lot...

    My experience of the world would be equally as colored from a new set of perspectives as it is already with my own tinted lenses on reality. Just so long as I get to not be an idiot I'm fine.

    I believe it's more practical and convenient if you're a sensor. You fit in more with the crowds and you're on the same wave-lenght as most others during conversations. Besides, for once I would like to be aware of the things happening around me without extra effort on my part and not accidentally fall off a cliff or something ridiculous like that.

    I want to see the world through a sensor's eyes! I feel like I look at things as concepts rather than noticing their physical particularities. I also think of my own comfort in conceptual terms or in terms of consequence or something like that.

    I drove around with a sensor the other week. There was a plastic bag in the road, which I did not see until it was almost too late to get around it safely. My thought process went something like *it is a plastic bag, I have seen these before, they are empty and I can safely run over it.* The sensor (who saw the bag much sooner than I did) thought *this bag is in one spot on the road rather than floating around. There is a ripple in the plastic, so something is holding it down. Something heavy is inside this bag, better not run over....too late.* The sensor was right and kudos to my sturdy car.

    Another moment was when he pointed out a trash can on the road. I asked him *what trash can?* and he said *you poor thing...*

    I literally do not see things that are there. I also think I do not sense many of the physical sensations sensors feel. So much of my daily experience is conceptual. I imagine that the world looks and feels more vivid and detailed for a sensor.

    I think if you really focus on it, do zen meditation and calm your mind, you can perceive like a sensor ... for a time, at least.

    Probably LIE. The only NT which combines naturally with E8. Also the only (or almost) type which can be a solid E8 without showing sociopath tendencies, although this is not always the case.

    There's something so enticing about being an ILE. Socially smooth and admirable intellect and very cool demeanor.

    SEI, LII or SLE. I would explain why but I don't know enough about socionics to dodge the "NOT TYPE RELATED" accusations.

    @darya @Kim aww

    those were really nice descriptions of sensor super-powers!

    that being said- I wanted to say that I run into things literally *all the time* (I just don't see them- including people) but.. it's true, I do really "feel the sunset" etc. thanks for the description btw it made me really appreciate my own sensing.

    I think it would be cool to be an intuitive to actually have things to say- I've been very quiet my whole life and many assume I'm just shy but it's also true that I often don't feel any thoughts running through my head. I spend a *lot* of time in my head but much of it is thinking about people I know, imagining people I might meet, and then also imagining physical sensations I may have felt before or want to feel in the future. i remember sitting in class in college a lot not having anything to contribute to discussions b/c i literally had nothing to say. teachers would sometimes go out of their way to call on me b/c i appeared shy, but in reality, I was sometimes thinking about what food I wanted to eat later, etc...

    Intuitives I know are a ton of fun to have around, they talk about everything in the world... both types of intuitives. Like whether cats could be our predators and us their prey (Ne) or how our identity cannot be separate from other's perceptions of us, it's all like a giant... cone of percep-identity or something (Ni) and I appreciate them a lot. <3 I do like sensing too, though, it's nice to get to sink into and be there.

    Not surprising, although I remember him clashing with ILEs more openly/frequently. In certain way makes sense, a corrupted version of oneself could be perceived as less acceptable than the corruption which is inherent to other people who are simply "different". As long as they do not interfere, in which case true conflict arises.

    ILE or EIE as your actual self-type, maybe?
