I got to thinking about making a typing thread after noticing how often mistyping is mentioned in different threads throughout the forums. I'm reasonably sure I'm an ILE of some description, but I'd be quite grateful if I could get an outside opinion
So I guess that I'd say that I like to understand the characteristics of things, and how those characteristics interact to form the thing itself, whether those be perceptual phenomena or the narrative elements of a novel or the ingredients and preparation of a meal. But I also like to consider how those characteristics are things in themselves, and that each thing can be abstracted into a component characteristic of a larger thing, and then thinking about the interaction between different levels of those structures. So basically how emergent phenomena arises through the interactions of component parts, which are themselves emergent phenomena, and how the qualitative nature of said phenomena is dependent on the nature of the interactions between the components and the qualities of those components, the qualities of the components being dependent on the interaction and qualities of their components, and so on forever. All of those emergent phenomena are dynamic systems as well of course, because I'm pretty sure nearly everything is most accurately described as a dynamic system. Maybe I'm getting a bit sidetracked here though.
I would probably describe my thought process as collecting lots of impressions and then congealing those impressions into an idea, and then moulding that into something communicable.
I enjoy having involved conversations about things. I don't particularly like small talk or conversations about relationship problems or the state of the world or ideology or whatever, just because those sorts of things don't particularly matter to me and they tend to depress me(though of course that doesn't mean they're devoid of worth, just that I don't appreciate them for whatever reason). I generally have a straightforward way of talking, but in casual conversation with friends I like to play with the flow of conversation and the different sensations/impressions words have, just because it's fun.
I'm kind of fidgety, look around a lot, twitchy but in a lazy way. I pay attention to my appearance but if I look like shit it doesn't particularly bother me unless I'm going to be in a situation where I know I'll be evaluated negatively for it by people who's opinions have influence over my life, like my landlord or my professors. My expression is often completely irrelevant to the immediate external situation, mainly because it's dependent on thoughts that I'm having, which also usually have nothing to do with the immediate situation. I tend to dissociate a lot from my immediate surroundings.
But yeah that's all I can think to say for now. Any input is appreciated
