Are you just going with the flow chatting with others online ? Is it a real "profit" you get here ? Talk about your motivations. Why you like being on the forum and if it's a well - thought decision that's in a way part of your life , your lifestyle.
    I joined in 2007 after stumbling onto the topic of socionics from MB...stayed for four or five years, then left and had my account deleted as I felt I'd wasted a lot of time here and didn't want to waste more (I figured wiping my account would also wipe out temptation). Re-joined last year out of...part boredom, part missing discussing socionics, part curiosity about what was going on here a few years later.

    Being back here reminds me of stepping into a river for the second time.

    I visit because people here often dig up interesting personality tests and the like. I think this forum also defies a lot of the "conventional wisdom" of other forums and doesn't feel like such a straight-jacket.

    I also think, that’s what I’m really afraid of regarding people, if I would start to take this too seriously. Like reading these things and the associations start to form and then you might not experience someone really, you just project all your ‚expectations‘ outwards and believe you understood something in another person.
    Yeah assumptions, assumptions. I really took care not to have the people close to me as socionics/enneagram/whatever stick-figures on this site. People close to me are for me. Posts which contain explanations for my typings are specific to that fictional character or person. There are these 3 people in my life, where I would say by reading through some posts 20% of real life content may have bled into the post. But there wasn't some grand subconsciously bleeding out. Regarding other things. I expressed them the way, that I could. That's all.

    Now you can't run this forum on ... certain emotions. You can concentrate on the content or you concentrate on some weird drama. I miss certain posters, like reading things from certain people, who have fleshed out some of their thoughts in a weighted and balanced way, some people who I suspect could write a lot of interesting things... but don't... ya well some things are more internally felt or sensed or idk...or people who shared a variety of things and idk... kept things running The variety of people here, coming together and sharing makes it and I'm afraid just pinning it onto one person and going about it this way... what's that suppose to accomplish? I mean in a way there has to be some sort of more people trying to pulling the weight here (and yeah I know some people have done this/tried). So keep going into another direction maybe... or keep it like this, I suppose.

    note: what would be cool... respecting boundaries.

    and why I'm writing this, honestly ... I'm not made of stone. I didn't wanted to let some people hanging there, who tried to uplift things here and try to contribute and me being all silent?


    ... but also this stuff goes on my nerves at times... like squeezing whatever into whatever ... and what is what ... ughhhhh

    I like to understand who I am and in which ways I'm different (or the same) than other people.

    Is there a thread for discussion regarding the forum?

    I think everyone is mostly aware where socionics is just stuck. It’s no science. It’s no rocket science. You can read yourself through the whole pile o’ stuff. You can read the discussions/opinions of others and decide for yourself what you actually want to use it for/how you want to use it. The critical discussions are in that sense pretty important to always keep the big pile of problems regarding the theory in mind (it's limitations). I remember back when I started posting, certain users where repeating their wish, that this forum would include more diverse material (more confident one) and not have everything circle around this stuff all the time (I think n0ki was pretty vocal about it). IDK there are for example users whose share different material, anndelise comes to mind rn. I personally wish it would be more like this too.

    I like the idea of a place where people explicitly analyze and discuss relationship dynamics in life, the human experience, and related topics.

    A major life event leading to a massive epiphany made me look deeper into MBTI, which brought me here and nothing's been the same since.

    Sometimes I wish never got into socionics, because I relate it to EVERYTHING now.

    Anyway, this place is pretty chill. People are super helpful and nice for the most part. You can vanish for months at a time and come back and the vibe is still the same.

    At the risk of sounding naive, how can we know this? We're all a bunch of random internet dwellers with our own thoughts and motivations. What someone deems as the right way, you may deem as harmful or vice versa. Most people aren't out to get you. But their methods and priorities may not align with your own.
