    My INTj boyfriend is very reliable IF he remembers to do something. Often times, I'll ask him to get a prescription at the drugstore for me, pick me up from somewhere, etc. and he'll completely forget within 30 seconds. I've learned to write him little post-its and send e-mail reminders about stuff. He actually really wants to remember stuff and be reliable, but he has the absent-minded professor syndrome.

    oh but to add another two cents, my dad is actually an INTj and when he says he will do something he 100 percent does it. Though, he is picky about what he says he'll do, but at least you know he'll do it for sure. So yes, some INTjs do learn to remember the details and are reliable.

    That's the kind of thing that happens to me.

    I keep my promises, and am very committed once I put my mind to something. People note that I go above and beyond when it comes to school work, my job, or projects in general. If you throw me into a situation relating to real-world workforce related stuff I never dabbled in, I'll probably let you down. There's a lot in life that doesn't come naturally to me, so I need to learn how to do something in order to follow through with it. When it comes to relationships, both romantic and friendships, I consider myself reliable too. Though I am slow when it comes to communications.

    I do put my best foot forward, even if the area is not my forte/area of expertise.

    You keep replying to LII threads but it says your type is EII in your profile, so what is your type?

    Ugh. I had this problem in my last relationship. My ex would often ask me to do something, or not to do something, and (justifiably) became upset when I would forget what she few seconds later. Her frustration toward me was a factor in why our relationship ended. Given that she was SEI and that people are oriented toward their duals, I wonder if ILEs would be more reliable in this way: it would seem counter-intuitive, though I’m not very sure how ILEs tend to act in relationships.

    I identify as a solid xII/ne type, but fi and Delta are overall more accurate for me I believe. It's interesting to look at posts from a slightly different perspective, and not to be confined to one section and posts pertaining to one type, and I can relate to aspects relating to LII, even if EII fits the bill more.

    Continuing on the theme that LII's and LIE's do similar things for very different reasons, I also forget everything. An IEI that I work with just takes this as part of who I am, and she kids me about it every time she sees me.

    She (sarcastically): "You probably don't remember this, but....(you are an idiot)...."
    Me, thinking: "Huh. She's right. I actually don't remember that."

    On the other hand, my ESI duals remember everything. They seem to accept the fact that I don't and they are always ready to remind me about the true facts of the situation. I find this to be one of their more valuable traits.

    Never once has one of them reproached me for forgetting something. I tell them truthfully that I don't remember anything, and they just fill in the blanks. I'm guessing that they don't really see that part of me as being a problem, and/or they instead appreciate more the fact that I'm a public face for them, that I have clear and definite solutions (which they frequently modify by stating facts), and that I'm a forward thinker.

    The difference between LIE's and LII's is information growth. More specifically and definitely, it is the concavity of the velocity of information generated over information fed.

    So introverts are convex information processors and extraverts are concave information processors. And because there's no such thing in real life as a information processor that's both concave and convex, ambiverts don't exist.

    What does concave or convex information processor mean? It means this: if you feed an LII 20% of a textbook, he generates 10% of knowledge. If you feed him 200% of a textbook, he generates 20% of knowledge, and so on. This is why LII's think in generalities and why you can make them take 5000 tests that categorize them as LII and they still ask "umm what's my type again?"

    If you feed an LIE 20% of a textbook, he generates 50% of knowledge. If you feed him 30% of a textbook, he's already generated 500% of knowledge. They don't take personslity tests, because by the time they understand it they've already gamed it and start complaining that the test was too easy.
    Socionics is not behaviorist!

    I forget about some detail of the assignment, or end up committing to it in a half-assed way because something more important turned up.
    same here. i can never trust anyone because i am always on high alert, picking out what doesn't fit, which other people don't notice. for instance, it doesn't occur to many people now that I've been in college a while and I've known immigrant friends who came with their parents to apply BEFORE the deadline, and even my own family makes similar mistakes, so I just do it myself, but yet when others expect things of me I can't understand why it's so important, especially being on the spectrum, and I just fail on purpose.

    I also forget everything. So many things overwhelm me at once, and then just as I'm about to do one last thing, another thing shows up and i implode or explode a little.
