"I think it's when you see past a person's physical manifestation, or any material things, and just straight into their soul. And when it's the same thing the other way around. I think it's when a pure soul connection that goes beyond the practical world occurs." -- preference for intuition.
"Acceptance, honesty, adaptability" -- all consistent with IEI. Adaptability is very much suggestive of the IP temperament, and if IPs had a motto, it would be, "I bend, I don't break."
What do you feel (or think) about this being your PoLR?Do you have any sort of spiritual/religious beliefs, and why do you hold (or don't) those beliefs in the first place?I'm an atheist. I kinda believe in destiny, but I'm not sure what causes it. I used to believe in astrology and have in-depth knowledge of astrology like, for example, what mercury square sun in the 7th and 1st house means... or what a sidereal zodiac is... but I got over believing that because it's empirically disproven... I think our mind tricks us sometimes to see meaning where there is none (I remember learning that in AP Psychology in High School) and I'm trying not to base my beliefs too much on things that are unproven, no matter how tempting.
Te as Vulnerable Function
That is manifested as a skepticism and dislike for basing your beliefs, arguments, and actions on external sources of information. For instance, a SEI will rather trust the expertise of someone who seems to have hands-on experience, even if limited, than of someone who demonstrates to have read many books on the same subject. IEIs will base their opinions and views on their own personal insights and be, again, skeptical of "second-hand" factual information that contradicts it. "Don't trust everything you read" is a typical sneer of this function, especially when applied to sources of information otherwise seen as neutral and reliable, such as encyclopedias and handbooks. Another manifestation is a dislike for dealing with issues involving efficiency, productivity, and factual accuracy of statements made; statements are made according to input from other functions, not from double-checks against external facts which are seen as of lesser relevance to the issue at hand. Types with this function lack confidence in their ability to find relevant information in outside sources.- See more at: http://www.sociotype.com/socionics/i....ltS5J24h.dpuf
Somehow they all kinda say the same thing. I have blogged about it before and probably will continue to explore it throughout my life. It isn't a daily thing. It doesn't even really guide any of my choices but I can see in hindsight. Same level as Enneagram and Socionics to me.
So for me Astrology and Numerology are just underlying belief systems that I see as being just as good as any other set of beliefs that ring true for me. They actually line up pretty well with the perception of IEI which I also find very interesting.
My mother is LSI. She is truly an inspector type and very pushy. I don't think she even realizes it though. I don't think we would be friends if she wasn't family but other people really enjoy her company. I always thought I was missing something that others saw in her. I have blinders to her good side sometimes and I wish I didn't. Sometimes my mind says she is not LSI, she is LSE. Maybe I should rethink this.
Meh, it may just be one of those mother/daughter things for me...wanting to see her as conflict over activity.
Is it hard having your mother as conflictor?

after reading through the whole thread I have no veto for IEI typing anymore
also, I think what you quotes yourself writing in spoiler in post #11 is a very good advice (and I'm listening to it as we speak, lol )
