    Deltas could probably live anywhere, but...

    ESTj, Washington D.C. -- structure, government jobs, things are pretty clean.

    INFj, in the suburbs of a big city -- pretty surroundings and some nature are important.

    ENFp, New York City -- variety, nightlife, new people, artsy stuff.

    ISTp, on the edge of town -- anywhere laid back with easy access to outdoor sports, e.g. mountain biking, surfing, etc.

    I wouldn't live in Canberra even if you paid me in gold nuggets and chocolate truffles.

    Melbourne is the IEE capital of Australia.

    You say that like it's necessarily a good thing.

    Canberra's more of a hole than Adelaide.

    not LA, and probably not NYC so much, either. Although I actually like NYC somewhat. I like DC more though.

    Most of Northeast US, especially the New England region, perhaps with a few exceptions that mostly tend to lean towards Gamma. In Europe, I think most of Scandinavia and certain places in the western Mediterranean region, including France. Australia and New Zealand are hugely Delta. Much of Southern Africa, too. I'm not sure about Asia, but I would guess Japan and places like Hong Kong could be very Delta.

    Everybody would want to live in a mansion that the LSE bought, like Phillip Banks on "Fresh Prince of Bel-Air"; they'd all want to have their own rooms there.

    I think anywhere an ISTp would like (nature, isolated, open space, etc.) I would hate.

    I think this is why I keep meeting ENTps and ISTjs and what not. I just don't hang out in wide open spaces as it makes me claustrophobic with all that nature. And there are no restaurants or drug stores or anything. I feel secure knowing I can always pop into a store to get a bottle of water or a snack or something. Nature does not have that. sigh.

    I knew a guy (that I typed as a LSE) who once worked in DC as some sort of lawyer in "government affairs"; he used to describe DC as being a place where everyone flocked to the most important and most influential person.

    This along with with my impression of politics in general made me think it was a Se and Fe place.

    But then again I like to be where things are interesting, happening and cool. So I can sympathise and I guess if you're good at what politicians do, it would a good move regardless of type.

    I just like the city. It was clean. Nice to see monuments, etc. I haven't lived there. But I enjoyed walking around it a lot.

    Bottle water is less regulated than tap water. And it's also more expensive and has a lot of unnecessary transportation costs, etc.

    In London the government buildings are built to look as if they symbolises the stable centre of a "great" and ancient nation; you almost have the impression that if the buildings (and surrounding areas) are allowed to disintegrate the entire country will too.

    No idea of exactly what it means socionically... Se? Si? ESTj? ISTJ? Aristocracy? Fe?

    Anyway... just saying.

    There are places with lots of nature that also have most things available, at least here in italy or in austria/schweiz (towns of approx. 50'000 inhabitants, idk if that's too low for your standard). Besides, water from rivers in the mountains is much, much better than any bottled water...

    wow that's pretty cool. I've always been scared of natural water, but I guess Italy is pretty pure still?

    Are there many ISTPs there? Italian guys are hot. Maybe I should go.

    And I think alligators are ESTps.

    Well, I thin that in the USA it should be sufficiently pure, too. As long as you drink it sufficiently near to some mountain source i.e. you've got to be at around 2000 metres, and not at the center of the valley but on the slope

    Are there many ISTPs there? Italian guys are hot. Maybe I should go.
    Lol, I think there's a fair share, I know 4 personally, although 2 of them have an ENFp girlfriend already.

    I think that Jekyll Island, Georgia is pretty Delta. With the beautiful scenery, all of the things to do there. With the beaches, serenity, and swimming. Some of the historical locations are Delta-y too. There are a lot of places to take nice, calm walks there.

    Yellowstone is Delta-ish with a lot of the scenery and animals (well the fact that it's pretty much a big volcano makes me question if it fits into the category) that could be the te side of things though if anything related to Delta.

    The Sierra National Forest as well.

    Animal Kingdom Park in Disney is the Delta-est of the Disney parks, but the rest of them aren't really imo. Animals in general, and the themes of keeping our environment safe, and healthy.

    Point Pleasant West Virginia too.

    Assateague Island, with the ponies on the beaches.

    Not to be stereotypical here, but I would say that Norwegian culture is very Delta.

    I would also say that many (but not all) corporate environments are Delta.

    As a self-typed Delta, I hate corporate environments and most things associated with them.

    Bureaucracy, red tape, top-down (micro)management, formal protocols and hierarchies, slow career progression, stifled individualism and room for innovation/creativity... and when you add to that all the ways in which nepotism, unfairness and horrible relationships can thrive in these environments, it's hard to find things to like or aspire for. Not to mention how any semblance of work-life balance and job security—things traditionally associated with corporate jobs—is rarely to be found, especially these days.

    To put it simply, my personal values don't align with those that tend to define or be prominent in most corporate environments.

    I know some Norwegians, and even the non-Deltas seem delta-y to me... so I'm inclined to agree

    Corporate environment is very rational-minded. They are very hierarchical and things such as chain of command, seniority, are valued. Wildcards like EPs or lazy experts like Ips aren't tolerated. IME the types that do best in those environments are LSI, LSE & LIE with an enneagram 3 fix. When those types need someone to do customer/public relations/marketing, they hire EIE, EII & ESI, but those types never really move up the ladder.

    I rarely feel alone. I rarely talk to anyone, yet in my head i have the most amazing, the most fantastic discussions with the people in my life. In real life, what most people talk about is several orders of magnitude lesser than their inner experiences. Most people never reveal the singularity of their subjective experience.
    Maybe I should learn to explore other people's consciousness. Maybe I should aim for a real space between me and others. Instead of cultivating monologues and fantasies. It's hard, but the alternative to this seems to be madness. ~ lkdhf qkb

    The 'small family business' seems to be something very delta with sp first. Even more if the business provides real products/services that make one's life easier. Farmers markets, family hardwares stores, bakeries, carpentry firms, and so on.

    I agree with the points you're making, but I think EIEs often move up the ladder.

    It might depend on the business we're talking about. From my observations, when it's about managing team tasks or making money then LIEs often displace EIE from the top by stressing them out on their role until they burn out. Both >Se HA Si-polrs you know.

    I'd guess in businesses(and government jobs in general) where there is more importance placed on reputation, social grace and contacts instead of revenue the advantage is reversed.
    I rarely feel alone. I rarely talk to anyone, yet in my head i have the most amazing, the most fantastic discussions with the people in my life. In real life, what most people talk about is several orders of magnitude lesser than their inner experiences. Most people never reveal the singularity of their subjective experience.
    Maybe I should learn to explore other people's consciousness. Maybe I should aim for a real space between me and others. Instead of cultivating monologues and fantasies. It's hard, but the alternative to this seems to be madness. ~ lkdhf qkb

    Agreed. Saying that I hope no SLI would open a medium scale business without constantly getting advice that contradicts with their thinking. Their positivity, opportunistic nature and short sighted approach constructs a recipe for bankrupt, have seen this happening more than I should and even after one or couple of bankrupts, they don't really grasp why it happened and improve/change themselves. Eventhough they care about freedom, working for a corporate would seem to suit them better than managing a medium scale business.

    I think you’re underestimating SLIs.
