I'm super embarassed for attention whoring here again, but as time goes on, I get more and more confused about my typing and I would really appreciate if anyone would care to answer a few more questions (I would be especially happy if some EIE's would chime in)..
I was death sure I was IEI, but when I saw @LostInDreams (I hope you're not angry that I give you as an example ) typed as IEI -Ni, I started to wonder....
How big is a difference between Fe-IEI and Ni-IEI ? I feel I use waaaay more Fe in my communication style
If she's enneagram 1w2 and I'm 4w3, isn't there quite a huge temperamental difference between the two? Is that possible under the same type? I always thought IEI's are supposed to be 4's.
Also, as it was suggested to me before that I might be EIE, I looked at some female descriptions of these girlies and almost everything hit home with me (but also an IEI description somehow - like two parts of my personality ). I admit I didn't even look at them before because I was so against this typing.Also on tests I get EIE 90% as likely as Fe- IEI.
I would just like to know, how histrionic can IEI's be? While I generally don't have a lot of (negative) emotional outburts, I really really hate it if I don't get any attention in a social setting and I always make sure I do, otherwise I completely stop speaking and look above everyone else or just plain leave . Oldham's dramatic personality style describes me perfectly.
Also, how manipulative are IEI's compared to EIE's? I feel like I manipulate very well with my emotions (NOT in a malicious manner most of the time, I want people to like me and feel good about themselves. Not to sound full of myself, but IRL I've seriously never met anyone who didn't like me if I wanted him to. If I really can't stand someone, I'm cold as ice and very arrogant . And I also have kind of an haughty and elegant way of carrying myself and doing stuff - like I'm constantly performing in front of an audience (god that sounds stupid).
How professional and perfectionistic are EIE's? Cause I'm none of those things. I'm very hardworking and nit-picky only when what I'm doing interests me or makes sense (which is not a lot of things), otherwise I couldn't bother.
To sum up, I was just really surprised at how much more logical and stoic LostInDreams was compared to me. But at the same time I know lots of women who are much louder and drama queenish than me, so I have no idea where to draw the line between types. I remember I read a really good description of Ni-EIE girl (compared to Fe-EIE gay guy) posted by someone on this forum, but I can't find it anywhere, otherwise I probably wouldn't even make this thread (I know this is a very tired discussion)...
Thanks everyone for the input!
