    Default Subterranean descriptions

    I have been reading a book online which has enneagram tritypes, and have subsequently and periodically written how I relate to many of them both out of a slight interest in the enneagram and because I thought it would allow me to psychoanalyse myself from a direction I have not really done so before.

    I have put these thoughts in a blog post because the book heavily cited is copyrighted and also because in future days I intend to compile a list of personality profiles I relate to without necessarily wishing to persistently and scatteredly alerting others.

    I have posted the results of a skills assessment I once did to that blog article (which will remain for the short term if not more). I consider much of it to be true. I answered completely honestly, at least consciously, and yet I was expecting it to give some idealised portrait in some areas. It turned out to be a rather sober assessment, perhaps even somewhat savage at times in the ways it made certain aspects to be "ordinary". I think it provides a different take on Me, psychologically, although as an overall assessment (in terms of skill aptitudes and personality), it would have been improved by utilising more direct measures of personality as well as things like Holland codes.

    (My analysis is based somewhat on the skills and profession suitability assessment scores which I have not included. There were for example many questions where I indicated a preference for a particular career over others, but the career did not score especially highly: this is because the assessment took my other preferences on other questions as well, in order to make an overall picture of my inclinations, which they then compare to each profession in order to give a suitability score.

    For some reason, the assessment believes I have an aptitude and a liking for mechanical activities. This is absolutely not the case. It also says I am not motivated by scientific & technical research and that I do not "prefer analytical, exploratory or investigative activities". I think for me to accept this blindly would be to create something of a false perception of myself: I do enjoy such things, and engage in them more than most. I can only accept this description with the qualification of the rest of the assessment, or it was emphasised as not being a primary motivation/inclination. I also disagree with the apparent extremity of the statement that I show "little preference for associating with others in vocational or recreational activities".

    You don't remember which assessment indicates you have mechanical aptitudes? I'm guessing by the wording that you aren't talking about the Enneagram or Holland codes. Since you're in Delta, and mechanical aptitude is usually associated with people in that quadra, perhaps the assessment is just picking up on a thinking style that is inherent in Delta, and therefore, you?

    Yeah, what it says you like is Si/Te, and what it says you don't like is Ti. So... Not sure what the problem is.

    I suppose I should also mention that So is Ego, Sp is Super-Ego, Sx is Super-Id, and that the enneagram types all correspond to an element pair within your TIM. Fit enneagram into your TIM, and you'll grasp both better.

    Extroversion 2 - Introversion 15
    Sensory 6 - Intuition 11
    Logic 9 - Ethics 8
    Then I noticed there was an English translation I had already attempted, where I got a rather different result:
    https://www.the16types.info/vbulleti...=1#post1094538

    My feeling this time is that based on that, I'm clearly a rational type, and that I could easily have scored higher on Ethics over Logic, although it depends somewhat on interpretation. It seems to me that I ideally like to do things logically, but in interactions with otherwise in the day-to-day, a person being insincere in tone disturbs me more than them being inadvertently illogical. I suppose that may mean that I don't know if I'm wrong or right, but I would hate to be insincere.

    With Question 65, in @ouronis translated version, the options were:
    a. I seem to make friends with people I can trust rather than people I can feel with.
    b. I seem to make friends with people I can feel with over people I can simply trust.
    I'd choose a out of those. However, when I did the GoogleTranslate one today, instead of Trust it had Reliability ("feel with" was either sympathy or like) - and I answered b.

    I don't like questions scored based on those four dichotomies.

    I recently remarked to myself that I'm too proactive to be of the IP temperament - during every waking moment at least, I'm thinking about some task or other. I'm not sure how significant that point actually is.

    From @ouronis' https://www.the16types.info/vbulleti...nics Type Test

    6. Choose the answer that is most similar to your general behavior:
    a. In general, I don’t have a problem with being obliged to others, and don’t mind taking their wants into account on a regular basis.
    b. In general, I have a problem with being obliged to others and prefer to organize my activities independently.
    I'm not sure how to answer this. I'm more inclined to answer a) because I don't usually refuse.


    7. Choose the answer that is most similar to your general behavior:
    a. I tend to be attached to my decisions. If a good decision was made, I do not feel that it should be changed for the circumstances.
    b. I tend to easily let go of decisions if I feel they no longer fit the circumstances.
    This question at least as it is doesn't make sense to me. By my understanding, a decision can only be good if it is appropriate for the circumstance. I'm more inclined to answer b) if only for that reason.

    9. Choose the answer that is most similar to your general behavior:
    a. I am better at explaining things that are pointed out to me than noticing those things in the first place.
    b. I am better at noticing things and anomalies than explaining why they happen or how they work.
    I'm not sure. I suppose b) - it may manifest in me being inclined not to believe an explanation that I think is problematic.

    16. Choose the answer that is most similar to your general behavior:
    a. I am dutiful and disciplined.
    b. I depend mainly on things other than duty and discipline.
    Probably a, but it doesn't feel like language I'd use.

    21. Choose the answer that is most similar to your general behavior:
    a. I create a good number of opportunities and plans.
    b. I try to limit what I’m involved in.
    I answered b), but it feels weird.

    22. Choose the answer that is most similar to your general behavior:
    a. I don’t worry about how much energy I’m using at any one time.
    b. I keep tabs on my energy levels.
    I'm not sure I understand the question. If I take it at face value, then the answer is a).

    25. Choose the answer that is most similar to your general behavior:
    a. I work on many things at a surface level.
    b. I expand after depth is acquired.
    I'm not sure. Let's say b).

    27. Choose the answer that is most similar to your general behavior:
    a. I use more information than I commit to memory.
    b. I commit to memory more information than I use.
    I'm not sure that makes sense, but I answered b) (I'm not sure something could be considered information if it was not of use)

    30. Choose the answer that is most similar to your general behavior:
    a. I feel more myself around others than alone.
    b. I feel more myself alone than with others.
    I don't know. Let's say b).

    33. Choose the answer that is most similar to your general behavior:
    a. I spend energy more than I save it.
    b. I save energy more than I spend it.
    I don't understand the question. I'm not inclined to relax, so the answer is probably a).

    36. Choose the answer that is most similar to your general behavior:
    a. I simply work with my environment to get what I want.
    b. I tend to think instead of act conclusively.
    I don't know. I'm inclined not to act if things are taken care of themselves well.

    38. Choose the answer that is most similar to your general behavior:
    a. The solutions I offer are based on what is reliable and proven to work.
    b. The solutions are better in situations where there are no reliable methods.
    GoogleTranslate has this as:
    a. I am more successful in what is tested and reliable
    b. More effective in unusual, incomprehensible
    It's difficult for me to relate to. a) makes more sense.

    40. Choose the answer that is most similar to your general behavior:
    a. I trust explicit experience.
    b. I trust what is implied and assumed.
    GoogleTranslate:
    a. I trust gained experience, not intuition
    b. I rely on my assumptions and guesses
    I went with a)

    41. Choose the answer that is most similar to your general behavior:
    a. I rely more on my training and gained skills.
    b. I rely more on my ability to come up with ideas and guesses.
    GoogleTranslate:
    a. My practical skills are stronger than my imagination
    b. My imagination is stronger than practical skills
    I went with b).

    43. Choose the answer that is most similar to your general behavior:
    a. I am better with things that have already been specified and brought down to earth.
    b. I am better with new concepts and ideas.
    GoogleTranslate:
    a. I am a concrete and realistic person
    b. Ideas and original guesses are my element
    Based on GoogleTranslate, b) sounds more like me. Others, I'm not sure I could say.

    46. Choose the answer that is most similar to your general behavior:
    a. I build or variate on the old and established.
    b. I build or create the new.
    GoogleTranslate:
    a. I do more than I invent
    b. I invent more than implement
    Based on GoogleTranslate, b)

    48. Choose the answer that is most similar to your general behavior:
    a. My suggestions are likely to work because I know in a very detailed manner what I’m saying.
    b. My suggestions may or may not work.
    GoogleTranslate:
    a. My offers are reliable
    b. My proposals are unusual
    Quite a big difference in meaning there. I'd probably say "not a)" for the first set, while for GoogleTranslate's version, I'd prefer to be reliable than unusual. That doesn't necessarily mean I am though. a), then.

    49. Choose the answer that is most similar to your general behavior:
    a. I am better at seeing how to achieve a goal than what a goal should be.
    b. I am better at seeing what a goal should be than how to achieve it.
    GoogleTranslate:
    a. I see better ways to achieve goals
    b. I see a goal better than ways to achieve it
    I'm not sure. I probably prefer to tinker with some already existing goals than creating new ones, so a) I guess.

    52. Choose the answer that is most similar to your general behavior:
    a. I’m calm.
    b. I feel a lot of emotion.
    GoogleTranslate has:
    a. I behave in cold blood (or "I behave coolly")
    b. I feel deeply
    I'd answered a) for the first set, and b) for the second set, which may not make sense. I'm going with b).

    53. Choose the answer that is most similar to your general behavior:
    a. The deciding factor for me is that something makes sense.
    b. The deciding factor for me is that something is human.
    GoogleTranslate:
    a. My judgment is valued more than feeling
    b. My humanity is valued more than reasoning
    Probably a).

    55. Choose the answer that is most similar to your general behavior:
    a. First, I respond in a restrained manner, attempting to think.
    b. First, I respond in an emotional manner, either internally or externally.
    Probably a), but I'm not sure. I don't necessarily see an inconsistency between "a restrained manner" and "internally emotional manner". I don't intend to respond "firstly in an emotional manner", but that may well be how I am.

    56. Choose the answer that is most similar to your general behavior:
    a. I focus on what’s necessary in a situation before what I feel
    b. I focus on what I feel before what’s necessary in a situation
    GoogleTranslate:
    a. I am driven by need and then sympathy
    b. I am driven by sympathy and then need
    I'd prefer to focus primarily and maybe exclusively by "need", but I don't see why "sympathy" cannot be an aspect of that.

    57. Choose the answer that is most similar to your general behavior:
    a. I live more in the mind than the heart

    a. My focus is more naturally on what is logically valid and/or useful about something.
    b. My focus is more naturally on the ethical standing/good and evil of something.

    b. I’m better at communicating emotions/moods than thoughts.
    Probably a). I'm not sure if anyone is better at communicating emotions/moods than thoughts.

    63. Choose the answer that is most similar to your general behavior:
    a. I’m better at proving what I think than persuading someone of it.
    b. I’m better at persuading someone of what I think than proving it.
    GoogleTranslate:
    a. I'd rather prove than persuade
    b. I'd rather persuade than prove
    Maybe a), at least for the first set. If GoogleTranslate is the correct translation - what would be the point of persuading somebody of something if I did not believe it?

    64. Choose the answer that is most similar to your general behavior:
    a. I’m more sensitive to absurdity and illogical statements.
    b. I’m more sensitive to rudeness and ingratitude.
    b)

    65. Choose the answer that is most similar to your general behavior:
    a. I seem to make friends with people I can trust rather than people I can feel with.
    b. I seem to make friends with people I can feel with over people I can simply trust.
    GoogleTranslate:
    a. I choose friends more for reliability than sympathy
    b. I choose my friends for liking rather than reliability
    Based on the trust one, I'm going for a).

    66. Choose the answer that is most similar to your general behavior:
    a. Emotions do not seem to affect me deeply.
    b. Feelings and emotions are always a part of what I do.
    GoogleTranslate:
    a. Emotions don't touch me deeply
    b. Feelings and experiences accompany my actions
    Based on the second set, I'm "not a)", so I prefer b).

    67. Choose the answer that is most similar to your general behavior:
    a. I like to analyze and organize more than to communicate with loved ones.
    b. I like to communicate with loved ones more than I like to analyze.
    GoogleTranslate:
    a. I am happy to analyze and organize
    b. I am happy to communicate with dear people
    From the first: I don't "like" to "analyze and organize more than to communicate with loved ones", but it is how I am. I'll probably have to go with a).

    68. Choose the answer that is most similar to your general behavior:
    a. I begin by forming an analysis of the situation.
    b. I begin by establishing good relations.
    GoogleTranslate:
    a. I start by analyzing the situation
    b. I start by establishing a good relationship

    a. In general, I don’t have a problem with being obliged to others, and don’t mind taking their wants into account on a regular basis.
    b. In general, I have a problem with being obliged to others and prefer to organize my activities independently.
    I'm not sure how to answer this. I'm more inclined to answer a) because I don't usually refuse.


    7. Choose the answer that is most similar to your general behavior:
    a. I tend to be attached to my decisions. If a good decision was made, I do not feel that it should be changed for the circumstances.
    b. I tend to easily let go of decisions if I feel they no longer fit the circumstances.
    This question at least as it is doesn't make sense to me. By my understanding, a decision can only be good if it is appropriate for the circumstance. I'm more inclined to answer b) if only for that reason.

    9. Choose the answer that is most similar to your general behavior:
    a. I am better at explaining things that are pointed out to me than noticing those things in the first place.

    16. Choose the answer that is most similar to your general behavior:
    a. I am dutiful and disciplined.
    b. I depend mainly on things other than duty and discipline.

    a. I create a good number of opportunities and plans.
    b. I try to limit what I’m involved in.
    I answered b), but it feels weird.

    22. Choose the answer that is most similar to your general behavior:
    a. I don’t worry about how much energy I’m using at any one time.
    b. I keep tabs on my energy levels.
    I'm not sure I understand the question. If I take it at face value, then the answer is a).

    25. Choose the answer that is most similar to your general behavior:
    a. I work on many things at a surface level.
    b. I expand after depth is acquired.
    I'm not sure. Let's say b).

    27. Choose the answer that is most similar to your general behavior:
    a. I use more information than I commit to memory.
    b. I commit to memory more information than I use.
    I'm not sure that makes sense, but I answered b) (I'm not sure something could be considered information if it was not of use)

    30. Choose the answer that is most similar to your general behavior:
    a. I feel more myself around others than alone.
    b. I feel more myself alone than with others.

    a. I spend energy more than I save it.
    b. I save energy more than I spend it.
    I don't understand the question. I'm not inclined to relax, so the answer is probably a).

    36. Choose the answer that is most similar to your general behavior:
    a. I simply work with my environment to get what I want.
    b. I tend to think instead of act conclusively.

    38. Choose the answer that is most similar to your general behavior:
    a. The solutions I offer are based on what is reliable and proven to work.
    b. The solutions are better in situations where there are no reliable methods.
    GoogleTranslate has this as:
    a. I am more successful in what is tested and reliable
    b. More effective in unusual, incomprehensible
    It's difficult for me to relate to. a) makes more sense.

    40. Choose the answer that is most similar to your general behavior:
    a. I trust explicit experience.
    b. I trust what is implied and assumed.
    GoogleTranslate:
    a. I trust gained experience, not intuition
    b. I rely on my assumptions and guesses
    I went with a)

    41. Choose the answer that is most similar to your general behavior:
    a. I rely more on my training and gained skills.
    b. I rely more on my ability to come up with ideas and guesses.
    GoogleTranslate:
    a. My practical skills are stronger than my imagination
    b. My imagination is stronger than practical skills
    I went with b).

    43. Choose the answer that is most similar to your general behavior:
    a. I am better with things that have already been specified and brought down to earth.
    b. I am better with new concepts and ideas.
    GoogleTranslate:
    a. I am a concrete and realistic person
    b. Ideas and original guesses are my element

    a. I build or variate on the old and established.
    b. I build or create the new.

    48. Choose the answer that is most similar to your general behavior:
    a. My suggestions are likely to work because I know in a very detailed manner what I’m saying.
    b. My suggestions may or may not work.
    GoogleTranslate:
    a. My offers are reliable
    b. My proposals are unusual
    Quite a big difference in meaning there. I'd probably say "not a)" for the first set, while for GoogleTranslate's version, I'd prefer to be reliable than unusual. That doesn't necessarily mean I am though. a), then.

    49. Choose the answer that is most similar to your general behavior:
    a. I am better at seeing how to achieve a goal than what a goal should be.
    b. I am better at seeing what a goal should be than how to achieve it.
    GoogleTranslate:
    a. I see better ways to achieve goals
    b. I see a goal better than ways to achieve it

    52. Choose the answer that is most similar to your general behavior:
    a. I’m calm.
    b. I feel a lot of emotion.
    GoogleTranslate has:
    a. I behave in cold blood (or "I behave coolly")
    b. I feel deeply
    I'd answered a) for the first set, and b) for the second set, which may not make sense. I'm going with b).

    53. Choose the answer that is most similar to your general behavior:
    a. The deciding factor for me is that something makes sense.
    b. The deciding factor for me is that something is human.
    GoogleTranslate:

    I think some of these T\F questions are terrible and/or do not allow for nuance, including in terms of the four judging IMs.
