    Default Giving this a shot

    I abhor violence. A movie's first gory scene is the last scene I'll see.
    ryoka14's thread served a painful reminder that compatibility (romantic or otherwise) instincts elude me. My favor is equally distributed among strangers. I'm an animosity socialist.
    I prefer to eat the same meals almost everyday.
    I wear the same outfit almost every day.
    Travel doesn't interest me. Though I change cities sometimes, I don't like trips.
    With the exception of my work schedule, no part of my day is planned more than 24 hours in advance.
    Novels are my favorite friends but poetry makes me sick.
    I don't move my face around a lot.

    I'll leave it to those interested in inquiring to further and control this conversation.

    IEE, if you're not a troll in any case, just a quick guess based on stereotypes plus what you wrote.

    i was thinking introvert. but its hard to tell.

    how do you eventually come to decide "compatibility" with someone? what is the process? what qualities do you like/dislike in others?
    what are some of your favorite novels? why does poetry make you sick?
    what are your thoughts upon seeing this picture?

    how do you eventually come to decide "compatibility" with someone? what is the process?

    Almost all my friendships end after two months. They invite me out, take photos with me, increasingly include me in their lives for a month, then begins the slow decline of interest. It fills me with guilt to admit the decline is more interesting than the ascent. Once interest is lost and I'm nothing to gain, I get to see all the ugly honest parts. I suspect those friendships which continue to last are the compatible ones.

    what qualities do you like/dislike in others?

    I don't like shame. If you ask me what I did last weekend, I'll give you the big picture, interesting and unimpressive details included. I like those who reciprocate in kind.
    Each of my long-term friends is perfectly capable of holding a conversation entirely with him/herself. My company to them seems to mimic a listening conscience. I like this.

    what are some of your favorite novels?
    The Left Hand of Darkness, The Gods Themselves, The Positronic Man. I frequently read thrillers but have yet to fall in love with any.

    why does poetry make you sick?
    It feels like tunnel vision. I respect the art, but looking through it is dizzying.

    what are your thoughts upon seeing this picture?
    Nostalgia. On my way to work I used to walk down a street with buildings covered in art like this every day, before I moved.
    I think it symbolizes repeated ego death.

    I'm no proper socionist but ILI sounds good.

    Now I'm just echoing everyone else, but: I love how you write...which probably means that I like how you think.

    so far you are xNxx.

    I liked how she (?) read the picture - "repeated ego death". I would have said unexplored areas of the brain (our potential for cognition and/or memory is broader in theory than we usually see in practice, given our limiting habits).

    I suppose strong Ni subtype from all the details (including leaving the reins of the conversation to others).

    What do you do for a living? Is that why you've relocated? If not, for what reasons did you relocate? Do you believe in love?

    edit: I also think Fe valuing is likely at this point, and IEI seems a pretty reasonable typing.

    What do you do for a living?
    I've had many jobs but specialize in nothing. So, whatever comes my way. Currently I touch money all day. I work at a bank.

    Is that why you've relocated?
    No.

    If not, for what reasons did you relocate?
    I'd exhausted my old home. I could have been a taxi driver.

    Do you believe in love?
    Yes, and in small examples, love finds it's way into life's humdrum. Go to a city park and on average I see it twice per hour.
    Though relationships are easy, relationships of consistent love are made from uncommon materials.

    This is a really interesting picture lungs, where is it from? I'm not trying to derail the thread, but it reminded me of album art from the prog metal band Tool.

    In addition, it seems that this artist has a very negativist view of the core of human nature. It's as if the artists feels the outer self is a veil over the primordial self, which seeks to wrap itself in layers of flesh to hide the truth of what it is, to remain elusive and to deceive others. The human psyche is dark, self-interested, and cares only its own survival. It is the amoeba that consumes without thought and is the opportunist that sees in every direction while it awaits for its prey.

    oh, i just came across it on my tumblr dashboard which was open in another tab as i was replying. honestly i wasn't very affected by it, but it just happened to be an easily available picture that potentially contained some symbolism.

    As many people mentioned before me, all of this points to an Intuitive personality (specifically, weak and subdued SI).

    You seem to have a strong sense of morality but some difficulties in showing it to others. Your view of friendships / relationsip reminds me of mine when I was younger... Something along the lines of "You can count me your friend as you wish as long we actually have something to share, and you aren't behaving too bad". Tells me something along the lines of weak FE and valued FI

    In general, the way you are answering to questions (lists, getting straight to the point, "counting" the amount of times per hour you see love in the air", low to no facial movements) suggests me a logical personality.
    I'm split between LIE and ILI on this one, but I'll go with the ILI interpretation, as most of your answers seem to be focused towards how you relate to the issue (aboundance of statements in the form "I [action, verb, feeling]..", relationships and people descriptions are always described from the point of view of how you relate to them, etc.)

    Hope this helps!

    I don't see valued Fi anywhere. "Something along the lines of "You can count me your friend as you wish as long we actually have something to share, and you aren't behaving too bad"" ?!? But why couldn't a IEI think like this? They have strong Fi after all.

    All I see is a pile of Ni with beliefs in supernatural gods controlling your destiny and desires to grasp some figures in the carpet in people's lives. I haven't caught sight of any Te so far.

    Thoughtful response, Erlaad.

    Should I be blessed with front row seats, I delight in watching happy accidents strike an ethical type into whirlwinds of carefree emotional expression, subtle or ebullient. This is why I fancy being an ethical type. I'm flat, though. I don't know how they stand me.

    And you are correct, I like my morals. Mine are clearly and simply defined. I'm relieved of the burden that is seething over nuisances (which years ago I struggled with), because hating an action won't guarantee its immorality and I won't waste hatred on a moral action.

    I think Agni got a somewhat distorted view of you from the "Assume a God Controls your Life" thread.

    See, I can't really imagine an ILI caring about that. Trying to force new perspectives seems Ne valuing to me. Could still be IEI though. They seem to like to make participatory, "just for fun" threads. Maybe my perspective is just narrow, but so far you seem to have only affirmed you have weak sensing. And there are some things about you that suggest valued Fi, but I think it's too little information to really conclude.

    The whole 'not moving your face around a lot' doesn't mean much to me because I have never seen a correlation between vibrant facial expressions and type values. If anything it might suggest intuitive but I think even that connection is a little weak. I do think you are intuitive dominant though. Either Ne or Ni.

    She (?) was mainly waiting for people to present her with material for discussion, looking for patterns in people's views and lives ...I don't see any Ne. Ne is more divergent, creative and random. If you check out typing threads of Ne users, they talk bunches about themselves or they open many slightly dependent threads of thought and actively bring in many (weird) ideas themselves ... they go on many tangents .. it can all look like fractals.

    Could be HP cog style.
    Or even DA in terms of synthesizing opposites.

    It was in my tumblr feed while I was registering and I thought it suited me well enough. Turns out it's from an album cover.

    It's eyes peering through binoculars at an attractive subject from a distance. Like me. I really, really enjoy people. Discovering them. But romantic adventures are outside my reach. I'm asexual. I also never fall in love. There's a lot of intimacy to be shared between platonic partners but I'm certain sex can bring a euphoric connection I'll never get to experience. I'd actually like to destroy that certainty. I want to find in it a childish romanticism and thus, my escape. I know I'll never enjoy sex, but I think I can find a way to tweak my brain so that I could fall in love.

    Quite a personal avatar after all.
