    I had my mom tell me what things she observed about me and the first thing she said was "you're not organized." Then she said "you love people and want to help whenever you get the chance." Then she said "you're quiet and withdrawn in your own world." She said of the choices you are EII.

    I liken my approach to Ptolemy's model of the Solar System: Ptolemy knew the exact position of every planet as it revolved around the Sun. However, he did not know how the planets actually revolved to make the Solar System what it is. My typing system is sort of the same: I know how I relate to every type in the socion, but I don't know what the overall system looks like - or even which 'planet' I really am; I only identify myself based on how the 'planets revolve around me' (i.e., how I relate to people)...

    It's part of intertype relations wich are very useful for typing others and yourself.
    And to type without thinking about wich functions are in ego, strong/weak, valued of a typed human (yourself too) would be strange.

    Kind of the opposite of #2, I type myself based on the functions of other people that I don't like. =D

    Like when my sister goes on Te rants I totally drain her out, I completely ignore her- my body only responds negatively to it.

    She's superficially like an IEI but I just realized she's too good & comfortable around Te to ever be an IEI.

    That's how I do it... My type is based solely on which functions I value/don't value and how I fit into the relations. Who I am - my ego functions - I completely ignore...

    For typing yourself it's also useful to understand what functions you have as strong and weak.

    I write 16 types on little papers and I place them in a jar. Then I shake it x close my eyes and pick one.

    Based on how type descriptions fit my behavior.

    Typing myself is a combination of the following:

    Determining what positions in Model A each function is located.
    How I relate and don't relate to other people.
    What I like in other people and what bothers me in others.
    What is important to me and not so important to me (ties into valued functions)
    What naturally comes easy to me vs. what is more difficult for me (ties into dimensionality)

    @jason_m Not trying to sound overly nitpicky, but in the poll as the first option you say "by the functions I have." Everyone has all 8 functions, it's just a matter of how they are positioned in Model A. I figure that's what you meant, but the phrasing of it might confuse some beginner in socionics to believe that we have some functions and lack others.

    Well, I can't edit the poll, but in the first option I mean by what ego functions one has. In the second, by what ego-functions one values/doesn't value in another person. The third and fourth options then explain themselves...

    Nah, but I type myself with values when we are talking about quadra, then further type myself into one of the 16 by "functions I have".

    Based on what others tell me. Introspection can be vulnerable to personal blind spots. I don't trust myself to be objective.


    For me, it's never been about understanding myself or my motivations. It's about understanding how my mental machinery works, so I can better adapt to the chaotic world around me.
