Hi, I am making this thread again. The last time, you gave me pretty good feedback, I thank you for that, but you gave different types and functions to think about and I am still not totally sure of I am type. I was thinking about how I use the different functions and came up with descriptions, that might help... I'll appreciate your feedback guys.
Te : I don't think I am very good at spotting, or creating effectivity. To be honest, I don't really care whether the things are effective, or ineffective, I think Imuch more care about abstract ideas and theories and much less about their real life application. I like to talk about the possibilities of an usage,but I usually let others to make things real and apply them in external environment. I am bad at creating productive orders, or systems as I am much more concerned whether the things are interesting, than whether the things are effective. I enjoy searching for information and learning. I put a great pride in my knowledge and am confident in sharing my observations and opinions. I feel confident when it comes to my intellect and usually am not afraid of intellectual argues, I also enjoy intellectual topics and debates where I can show my knowledge and share it with others.
Fe : I recognize and follow social norms and external ethical rules, but I perceive them more as a tool of good functioning society, than something really important. I see them as useful for surviving within the society and avoiding conflict. I usually adapt to emotional needs and expectations of people around, but I sometimes have problems to fit in the group. I usually mention my personal space and I prefer to stand outside a little bit, even though when it's needed I adapt and join group activities, but I do not particularly search for them and rather work alone. I am aware of emotional atmosphere around me, I am sensitive to it, but I usually do not know how to externally react on such things and it usually makes me feel silly and a bit insecure. I notice how others behave and try to behave around them, to be a pleasant company for others. However I am not initiating the convos and wait for others to come and talk to me. Most of all I notice who within the group is similar to me, who do I personally like the most and then usually I bound with that one special person. When I find a person like that, I tend to completly withdrawn from the group without feeling any need to join the group activities. I like to talk about my emotions, but I do not like to directly express them (I can tell you I feel sad, but I'd never cry infront of you). I also don't enjoy too emotionally tensive situations and rather than expressing what I feel with cry, or laud laugh, I tend to completly withdraw. I also do not feel the need to manipulate with anyone's emotions, however when someone feels bad I like to cheer the person up with some light-heated jokes. With people I don't know well, I am rather more formal and mention a distance from them.
Se : My awareness of the environment is very poor. I am not good at immediate reactions and I often hesitate, I feel uncomfortable, when I have to decide, or act immediately and don't have time to think things through a bit. It takes me time to notice changes in external environment. I know I am physically very uncoordinated and weak. I've always hated most of the sports. I keep a deep hatred for aggression and violence, also any kind of conflicts. In a situations when I am forced to use physical strengths, I feel insecure and try to avoid them. I also avoid direct confrontation and try to mention tolerant and peaceful atmosphere.
Ne : I love to elaborate on hidden meanings, metaphors and possible ideas in work, or events. I very much enjoy art for it metaphorical and indirect forms of its communicating, I like to search for the essence, the core of people, objects, happenings. I very much understand the motivations and the hidden reasons behind an action, or a statement. I enjoy like-minded people with whom I can elaborate and explore new and different possibilities and explanations. I always ask why? What's it meaning? I love to brainstorm , I love to debate. I enjoy and appreciate new and original ideas and always try to stay open to novelty and differences. I also like to create my own creative work, write poetry, or novels and enjoy using metaphors. I tend to go toward non traditional and a maybe a bit "weird" . I search for freedom to be able to explore all the possibilities in life.
Ti : I like to search for the system by which things work, how they work and why they work, but I am not good with structure, or concrete logical data. When I think, I can think in order, I like to put things in categories and I am highly aware of the hidden connections between the systems and objects and I like to explore them. I like to elaborate on things and analyze them. I like to work with abstract concepts, or systems, BUT the systems and concepts I like to work with are highly people oriented such as psychology, or sociology and I am not particularly interested in numbers, or datas. I like philosophy, but it's always more in a concept of words, than numbers. I have an interest in science, because it can be mind provoking, but I dislike too strict systems. What I need, is to be able to come up with my own explanation, my own understanding, that is not limited by a system, or a structure, but is logically consistent with it. However, when I am facing numbers, or strict logical data, they just feel cold to me. I am excited when I can think, analyze and elaborate, but in a terms of words and phylosophy. I like to create and explore my own definitions. But I am really weak in math or chemistry.
Fi : I am aware of social hierarchy and very sensitive on feelings of sympathy and antipathy. My feelings of personal like or dislike of people are very strong and I am more or less led by them in most of social situations. I appreciate kindness and humanitarianism and try to live by them, usually I admire people who do charity and try to help others. I have a deep understanding of fake and real feelings, depth and shallowness and I usually despise people whom I see as fake, or shallow. I am highly aware of my inner feelings, I am moody and I am usually led by my moods. However, I don't see myself as "ethical". I am an idealist, with high standards, but my ideals and goals are not by far ethical. They are aesthetic, creative and goal-oriented. They have nothing to do with ethics... For example I have an ideal of style and look, that I try to reach and look for it in others to feel inspired. I value people who are creative, original and aren't afraid of being themselves and I know what I want from life, I know I want to be an artist and to be creative myself, but I don't really think about whether I am good, or bad. As long as I feel personally satisfeid and in harmony with those ideals I just mentioned, I feel happy. I don't even believe there's an evil, or a good...that's so black and white. I think everyone is different and everyone should have the right to be his own self and live the life that is right for them. I rather avoid doing ethical judgements.
Si : I am very sensitive on feelings of physical comfort and coziness. I can very much enjoy good drink, good food and good atmosphere of a place. I like to feel physical relaxed and cool. I notice how things were before and how are they now and I often like to relive the past moments, when I felt good again. I like to revisit my favorite places and I often remember such thing as a smell of a place. For example "This place smells like my favorite restaurant". However I am not very detail oriented, I do not notice patterns, or colors and I usually prefer to stick to my favorite small color palette I like. I try to lead more healthy life and am interested in for example healthy food, but I often don't stick to such routines. I have actually bad healthy habits, even though I try to change them. For example, I have a terrible sleeping routine, I rarely fall asleep before 4 am.
Ni : I notice how things were before, I notice the patterns of history and I enjoy forecasting , but I often fail to notice every details of the possible outcomes so I often need someone else to remind me of them. I am good at noticing symbols and their meaning, I am good at noticing patterns. I enjoy the play with the magical and abstract, however I don't take it very seriously. I am not very good when it comes to time management. I have very vivid imagination and rich internal world. I very much enjoy to daydream and usually daydream at the expense of the actual work. I like to fantasize and to create my own happening inside of my head. I often get so lost in my own imagination, that I can forget about the real world.
