    Default Hello

    Hello, members of the16types' forum.

    My name is Ian, but I will go by my forum username, Taldoria. I am a 20 year old male from California, US. I have always had a penchant for psychology and sociology; and, while I have taken two underclassmen college psychology courses, I was not satisfied due to the fact that neither course covered personality (barring disorders) or typology. As a result, I began to read Jungian psychology and MBTI. I have read portions of Jung's "Psychological Types" and various MBTI and Socionics articles. Recently, I have attempted to completely switch over from MBTI to Socionics as I see Socionics as a more thorough and meticulous system. Moreover, most MBTI tests have told me that I am an INTP, yet most Socionics tests have told me I am an INTp, so I really wish to clear up the confusion and completely understand the system so that I may understand myself and others.

    Some miscellaneous information about myself:
    • Hobbies:
      • Playing guitar and listening to music to understand the harmonies, melodies, etc.; however, I am not much into analyzing the structure or studying music theory, at least not in my leisure time.
        • Jazz
        • Jazz fusion
        • Progressive rock and metal
        • Instrumental rock
        • Experimental rock
        • Modern, Romantic, and Classical music

      • Reading philosophical and classic fiction texts--I'm actually formulating a system of curricula for myself right now while I'm not in school. Though, whether I'll follow it or not...
        • What comes to my mind right now is Plato, Kant, Dostoevsky, Marx, Nietzsche, Conrad, Chekhov, and Camus

      • Studying Socionics

    • Academic interests:
      • Philosophy, math, logic, literature/creative writing, and biology (specifically in regard to health)

    • Pop culture interests:
      • Sports
        • Basketball, American Football, and Baseball

      • Meme culture, including all the ironic, and post-ironic stuff


    Anyway, I'm glad to be on this forum after lurking for some time.

    Welcome, Taldoria. Enjoy your stay!

    Sounds like EII and LII hidden agenda. Hidden agenda can be quite helpful to determine your sociotype. Who knows!
    I'm not a native English speaker. I apologise for any grammatical mistake, and feedback/correction is always welcome!
