    Honestly, it just kind of sounds like Ij types of any sort. Ti and Fi egos can oftentimes be harsh and strict in their values in any case. Ej's are too but it's not quite as strict as the Ij's.

    EDIT: he changed the post. That's not fair.

    I don't think so. I always got the impression you always want to be honest, and just like for everyone to get along. Although I might not know you very well, you seem so great, and I'm glad you're on the forum since you're pretty smart and offer some helpful replies, too.

    Plus, you're avatar, signature, location status, and overall profile are all pretty hilarious (in a likeable way).

    I think most ISFjs prefer action over talking, if you know what I mean.

    They like to talk about what works, what is the best way to do things, and how the world and the government would best work under ideal. I get the sense they are very loving with other people and somewhat social but seem slightly introverted.

    Also, here are some pictures of a couple of the people I had in mind who are similar to eachother. Maybe there's a particular type that stands out?
    I don't know enough about those people to say based on VI.

    But you were eerily correct in the government thing. And with moral principles.

    So yeah. Supposedly, I'm an ILI. When I pictured my friends, I did not picture those people. Then again, my friends at the moment are not very good.

    I liked when I met an ENTj and he started talking about one thing, and then when he couldn't answer, I started talking.

    This happened in the chat here, of course. So what was I going to link? I forget.

    I agree with contra that most IJs can be strict in their own ways/logic/values. I used to be a lot more "moralistic"..now I prefer people just getting along esp irl social groups.

    I know LIIs, EIIs, ESIs LSIs who are annoyingly stuck in their own mindsets. It took life experiences to make me relax more.




    The four persons in the pic look fairly introverted.

    Top two (blonde female and teenage boy) look Fi-ish.

    The bottom two- no idea.

    Maybe you were thinking how you're drawn to talking with people who are similar to you and how you notice yourself and other Gamma types like talking about government and moral principles? I'd be interested in hearing more about that thought, if you'd ever like to come back to it.

    Thanks! I'd be glad to provide a description of each. I'd just like to find out what their types are. Now I'm wondering if they're actually IxTps.

    ExI. Te suggestive is slave for HOWTOs. They really like that aspect. At least EIIs. They are practically praying my demonstrative Te to lift its lazy ass.

    Probably ESI because of this particular construct and best way approach. Delta is more about practicality and environment jazz.

    Now I'm wondering if the first and third people are ESI and EII respectively, the second boy is ISTp and the last girl is ESTj. Would that be accurate?

    First one looks like Dominant Fi.

    I agree that the second guy looks Fi-ish. He actually looks a little bit like an SEE I know but he looks introverted. ESI might be possible.

    No clue on the 3rd one. I find people 30+ years older than me really hard to type.

    4th person looks Extroverted and sensory but I really don't know. (LSE might make some sense)
    @Limitless, do you know your type yet?

    Not yet, although several people have suggested IEI and Director Abbie’s actually typed me EII. I’d be interested in hearing if you have any suggestions or if there’s a particular type that comes to mind, so please let me know!

    I couldn't say for sure, but you come off as EII. I see you as Fi ego over Fe just based on your posts. Plus you seem Serious> Merry.

    ~~ for what it's worth (and not much!) ..I vote IEI for your type. (and your dad in the dad thread comes off as Si/Fe via description and thread...). Just felt like putting that in here because..I didn't feel like backspacing to find the dad thread.


    (and you look so stinkin' cute in the avatar pic... like lil mischievous kiddo).

    That was very helpful and I'll definitely be considering it, thank you!

    Thanks!! It was taken a couple years ago and I’ve had several people asking how old I am, and so they’re always pretty confused when I tell them seventeen. Also, thanks for the suggestion about my dad. It's gotten a lot better already, because it helped me to realize we're just different people and like different things. Honestly, I feel pretty silly for putting up such a ridiculous post like that, but hopefully, most people are able to understand.

I've heard they tend to change their minds about other people very quickly and can be very difficult to get to know... is that really true? How would I spot one? If I met one through some sort of local event (and I can come across as pretty unusual), would they talk to other people about how awkward I am behind my back? Or would they find it interesting and just try to get to know me a little better?

    Please note that there are only a couple of ESIs that I've known well. My responses are based on them as well as on another person or two who I don't know all that well.

    Yes. They're only playful with people they know well and are comfortable. Their moods don't change quickly. Their humor may have an edge/bite to it. They're capable of just being goofy though, too.

    I've heard they take life very raw, which I find really interesting.
    I'm not really sure what this means, but it sounds right. Everything is very real and serious to the ones I've known well. They experience things intensely.

    I actually spent several months last year telling myself I was one, because I used to have this idea in my head where people are able to find their own type by learning about all the other types and choosing their favorite one from all them, because I figured people would be just naturally drawn to other people who are so similar to them in that way.

And then I can learn to channel my Fi through my Se!" And actually that's partially why I started writing songs!!
    One could probably express any information element through music. If you like writing songs, do it.

    But then I realized there was probably a reason I couldn't relate to the description.
    I think descriptions are generally not the greatest way to type people, but if you find you don't identify with much of anything in the description, then it's time to at least consider other possible types.

    What kind of thoughts would they generally have during a dinner party or something like that?
    Well they're not center of attention. They're not boisterous or bubbly. They may or may not talk about what's going on in their lives.

    How would they normally spend their weekends?
    ntr (at least not in any useful way)

    I've heard they tend to change their minds about other people very quickly
    Noooooooo. They change their minds about people very slowly.

    and can be very difficult to get to know... is that really true?
    Depends on the person they're getting to know.

    How would I spot one? If I met one through some sort of local event (and I can come across as pretty unusual), would they talk to other people about how awkward I am behind my back? Or would they find it interesting and just try to get to know me a little better?
    I don't know. Depends on the person.

    A type is just the way a person processes information, and there's much more to a person than that. As such, it's difficult to use external behavior to determine type.
