My Typing (if socionics is even a real thing)1. What is beauty? What is love?
Hi guys, I'm Number 9 large (props if you get the reference lol), and I stumbled on this questionnaire, which I believe is used to type people? I identify a lot with LII (INTj), ILI (INTp) and recently, LIE (ENTj). I've also believed I once was the mbti INFP, socionics ESTp, ESTj, ISTj and ENTp.
According to my last test on sociotype.com/test I value Ti, Te, Ni, Ne, have moderate Se and Si, and very low Fi and Fe.
That doesn't really type me as anything at all, so I question the validty of socionics in general.
Out of all the functions there are 8x8= 64 combinations, not 16, and my second last test got me both INTj and INTp as equally matched, with ENTj being 98% as likely.
On my most most recent test I got ISTp, with INTp and ENTj being 98% as likely.
Sometimes I wonder what bullshit I'm even studying, but still this theory catches a lot of my hours of attention, because I have a feeling that we're onto something here, especially concerning visual typing and the concept of duality, which I can relate to very well, because I tend to fall for what I think are SEE's (or ESE's), I'm not sure about that one.
Anyway here are the questions. Let me know what you think of me and my ideas, mostly. Brutal honesty, please.
True love doesn't exist. It's just a concept made up by human beings to give meaning to the feeling they feel when they are physically attracted to someone. Beauty equals physical attraction, or appreciation of an objects looks.
2. What are your most important values?
I understand that life is inherently meaningless, therefore my values are simply relative to what I think is best. This means that in practical day to day matters, I tend to speak well of a 'live and let live' attitude. I understand that we are all in the same boat of useless existence, this is really the only thing that we have in common with all living beings, and we acknowledge it by respecting one another.
So in short, respect, treat others the way you want to be treated, and live and let live. On the other hand, I completely understand the law of the jungle and accept it as a natural state of affairs, and it seems to be a hidden human agenda aswel. In the end we are all selfish, we only help others to increase gain for ourselves.
3. Do you have any sort of spiritual/religious beliefs, and why do you hold (or don't) those beliefs in the first place?
I think I identify as a nihilist, as you may have noticed Therefore I believe life is inherently meaningless. Our lives are not any more meaningful than that of bacteria, or flies that live for a day.
We come here, reproduce and die, that's basically the cycle of life. Meaning, as we know it, is absent, and any meaning you give to this life is equally meaningless and mundane, something to pass your time on earth by.
4. Opinion on war and militaries? What is power to you?
I despise war, as I think we can get a lot more profit from working together as a unified planet. I think war is stupid, serving selfish and corrupted power games, driven by fear and greed. It's the individuals and nations that think they are a unity that are the problem. In reality we are all in the same boat, and can accomplish brotherhood from that fact alone, but people are too stupid to see it.
5. What have you had long conversations about? What are your interests? Why?
Conversations: The meaning of life, religion, philosophy, also socionics, psychology in general, love, finding your partner.
6. Interested in health/medicine as a conversation topic? Are you focused on your body?
Actually I am working out for 2 years now, to attract girls. I like to discuss training programs and the best and fastest way to get ripped.
7. What do you think of daily chores?
Boring, mundane, try not to focus on them, procrastinate untill I get into problems and can't ignore them anymore.
8. Books or films you liked? Recently read/watched or otherwise. Examples welcome.
The Gladiator, Harry Potter in my teenage years. Also liked the Revenant.
9. What has made you cry? What has made you smile? Why?
Not being understood by others, loneliness, rejection by girls, feeling alienated and different than other people, but not in an inferior way, but more that they just don't get it, and when I try to explain myself I always end up dissapointed, not getting the well-informed responses that I long for.
In the end I mask myself with a smile, but on the inside I know I am lonely and prone to be misunderstood, while I almost always mean well...What makes me smile? Dark humor.
10. Where do you feel: at one with the environment/a sense of belonging?
I actually don't really feel a sense of belonging (see my previous response.) in my daily life.
I identify as a nihilist though, and if I had to choose I would choose to identify with philosophers, great thinkers that were ahead of their time, living in the wrong time period.
11. What have people seen as your weaknesses? What do you dislike about yourself?
I dislike that I am different, while at the same time cherishing it.
I would not like to be more stupid just so I can fit in, although I am interested in what it would feel like to be fitting in.
What people see as my weakness is never ending doubts, indecision. My weakness is endless pondering over situations and usually social obligations, which I then usually, after a couple of nights bad sleep, blow off, usually regretting it later, but it's the only way to stop the never ending doubt and fear that bugs my mind at times.
12. What have people seen as your strengths? What do you like about yourself?
Actually I don't really get the impression that people like me all that much. Some people (I think?), like it when I give objective advice to them, but even that I think most people simply don't appreciate, as I don't either.
I think what people do like about me is my sincereness and honesty. Sadly few can meet me halfway with these qualities.
I've heard from girls that they think I'm cute, but that's not really a mental quality, more a physical one.
I also consicously exercise bodybuilding to make up for my mental 'deficiencies' of not fitting in.
13. In what areas of your life would you like help?
Maybe someone to do all the useless daily chores that I so hate, like cleaning up my room, renewing my identification card or other useless bureaucratic procedures that in the end always get me into trouble.
14. Ever feel stuck in a rut? If yes, describe the causes and your reaction to it.
Sometimes, but at the moment I feel like I am moving somewhere useful.
I had it last year, when I was studying psychology and philosophy in college, but actually I wanted to go to law school, because I just know I am going to be jobless and useless if I finish those two studies. I'd rather philosophise in my free time about whatever I want (rather than forced topics which I might engage in only if it suits me)
Law school would serve me as a tool to obtain money, so I can engage my dreams of conducting a full-blown research on socionics (perhaps, this idea occurred to me yesterday, so it might change, because I am personally really sceptic of this ideology and perhaps pseudoscience, but I have a feeling that we're onto something here.
Especially Filatova's visual identification strikes me as very very interesting and unusual, but strikingly familiar, and it would serve me really well if I could identify personal features from people by simply looking at them.
I might write a book about that someday, if I can
15. What qualities do you most like and dislike in other people? What types do you get along with?
I actually find that I am very attracted to very spontaneous and fun-loving girls, who according to socionics, might identify as either ESE's or SEE's.
Have always been.
They seem to possess some fun-loving spontaneous quality that I cannot muster, and I envy them, while at the same time being attracted to them, they draw me in :-)
16. How do you feel about romance/sex? What qualities do you want in a partner?
I want her to be physically fit, to the same degree as me. If physical attraction would scale from 1-10 and I am an 8, then I would want her to be an 8 aswel, no more no less. This would prevent cheating, as we both know we can't get any better than ourselves.
For personal qualites, see the previous question
I like women who take the initiative, who are assertive and dominant in bed at least, this makes me feel like I'm not fucking a corpse you know? I don't like helpless women, I like strong individuals who know what they want and how they want it.
This I truly adore.
17. If you were to raise a child, what would be your main concerns, what measures would you take, and why?
I would let the kid decide his life for himself mostly. I would let him make obvious mistakes I would see coming, because I know life is the best teacher, and I would only withhold him from her teachings if I would protect him from every harm, it would make life boring and meaningless ( which it already is, but you know what I mean.)
18. A friend makes a claim that clashes with your current beliefs. What is your inward and outward reaction?
Inward: I am willing to listen if their claim is concurrent with reason. If not, then I lable than as stupid inherently.
Outward: Willing to listen, if their claim is irrational, I try to ask them skeptical questions of why they say that or claim that, and try to refute it with logic, if that doesn't work I simply give up and decide that that person is probably not really worth my time lol, at least for that discussion anyway.
19. Describe your relationship to society. How do you see people as a whole? What do you consider a prevalent social problem? Name one.Prevalent social problem: Us vs Them mentality. We are all one people. We are all living beings, monkeys, horses whatever, it's all the same really, just different outtings of life. Distinctions only really exist in our minds.
Oh and mindless adherence to football clubs, wtf is that even about, the most stupid thing.
You could call me a critic, skeptic. Don't believe anything they say to you, unless you know it's true yourself, which you don't, so yea
20. How do you choose your friends and how do you behave around them?
I don't really choose them, they choose me, it happens naturally.
Around my friends I like to crack rude jokes and see if they crack, if they do, then they're not worth my time. If they can retalitate with equal banter, I really appreciate that lol.
I like to torment people a bit with words and unscrutinized logic, packed in a friendly manner.
21. How do you behave around strangers?
restrained, passive, try to light up the mood with sarcastic remarks
If you've read through all this bullshit, congratulations. I have a couple of questions for you.
- How would you type me?
- Do you think socionics represents reality? Why, why not; partial reality?
- What is the difference between ENTj-Ni and INTp-Te?
Thanks for reading.
