Today is the first time I've replied to a few of them and it's quite funny.
    Sorry for derailing, but what I wanted to say is just that I mostly see from Sol a list of facts.

    I'd like to read that.

    I'de like to read that too.
    He does also "you're E (reasoning)". (Not saying it's necessarily very good reasoning though...)

    It's not derailing, it's the member type thread.

    Uh, if I can easily find the threads, I'll get the links for you later.

    Unlike Adam, I have much more experience in typing and hence better skills by VI and common behavior anaylisis. Have better theory knowledge and understanding as Adam said bs about types, messing suggestive Fe vs Fi. The same mess in the heads I notice among other members, besides their hard heresy usage. The 99% of forums members have zero types understanding compared to me. Adam and you are just noobs to discuss what I do. Noobs which use heretic bs and studed typology by lame translated sources.

    You have a speculative mess in your mind about what happens and then on this base your conclusions. The same is the reason you have exotic opinions about types, which said before. I suspect about many things in the life you have the similar basis of baseless speculative illusions. Ground to the Earth.
    Alright I get it if you are upset by my willingness to criticize some of your stuff. And especially my willingness to criticize in terms of your authority that you so wish to have here.

    It's just funny that you accuse me of speculating and then you do the speculation about what I do in my life.

    As for the rest of what you say here, it's all just your opinion without you being able to empirically prove it.

    You don't gain authority just by randomly (without proof) claiming that others have no expertise/understanding.

    @Reyne I agree. I said the same thing re. system vs method HERE for Sol, but you elaborated on it much more than I did.

    I think reyne did a good job on describing the process whereby a systemic understanding emerges as a consequence of a primary focus on developing a method that works. I think in strong thinking types it bears mentioning that it can go both ways, with Ti adopting this approach (lets experiment and see what works) if it is seen to have rigor and not be something thoroughly discredited in principle, like various pseudo sciences. Which in this day and age pragmatism and empiricism have all sort of been integrated into respected modes of generating knowledge. In the same way Te types will read manuals and can develop a systematic understanding directly, in fact such a thing is often necessary, such that to see a Te type engaged in this would not be inconsistent with strong Te at all (doing general research to broaden one's knowledge). I think there's a general proclivity when looking at Ti/Te approaches to oversimplify and make it an either/or, but that is more how ethical types would like to view the world with respect to their 1d thinking function. The reality is always more complex. Ultimately what distinguishes Ti from Te is not "what works" but "why it works." Deepening one's understanding is either valued for its own sake or in terms of the work it can do. The relationship between Ti/Te is such that that Ti subconsciously makes that knowledge "work" for the person. In other words, deepening for its own sake always does collateral work, even if its sheer enjoyment, which is how you can spend $10 on a movie or simply read the dual nature of man for the 100th time, or what have you (Jeopardy fans are not necessarily Te valuing, in fact quite the opposite I would bet). In a similar way, Te can be genuinely synthetic in how it casts a broader net in seeking out knowledge that does work and contributes to an overall stronger body of knowledge, and these interconnections are like a spiral that deepens by itself over time. Its funny because people often stereotype the ethical and physical qualities of a person, but if you think about it, thinking is no less stereotyped in its own way. And by this I don't mean anything malicious but a kind of low res reduction in order to get a handle on things, but what results is often a comparison or taking sides, when in reality the difference is most often a product of the stereotype itself. people who strongly emphasize the superiority of one are therefore almost always the statements of someone actively defending their own weak side, not really commenting on other people, although other people and traits happen to get caught up in this, and this is precisely the basis on which real tragedies can occur, like all the evils of racism and so forth. this is the power ethical types often unintentionally exercise over the world with potentially disastrous consequences

    If that isn't Ne vulnerable I don't know what is.

    Yes, LSIs can be interested in logically analyzing things, but often once they've made their minds up, tend to view reevaluating their beliefs as a chore (or even threatening, in the worse cases).

    LSEs by contrast are enthusiastic about new ideas, information, ways of looking at things etc. It's a misconception that they're "just a different type of rigid", whatever that means. I guess it's partly based on MBTI.

    it probably has to do with if you hit LSE with some Ni they're going to resist it, primarily on rational grounds. which is what LSI does except with Ne. They're similar in the sense the like to keep the intuitive scope of their polr as constrained as rationality allows and it is in that narrowing they find their contribution to whatever field they're dedicated to. in other words they like to nail things down with a thinking process, and opening up a new front is likely to be considered a form of opposition, or at the very least perceived somewhat painfully to the extent it presents a legitimate claim. i've noticed this in law school, LSE is very good at thinking a few steps ahead, but if you take it even further and point out whichever path they take terminates in the same result they can get really frustrated. they like clamping the time axis to relatively near term and don't like to evaluate goals and aims in terms of things such as enantiodromia, or even large scale market forces naturally balancing certain efforts. they are believers in the ability of work to accomplish a goal, that is easily undermined by making it out to be more or less a chasing after the wind. they are very much not enthusiastic about those sorts of ideas, quite the opposite in fact. if you point out that cleverly constructing a law may just result in the market adjusting to compensate they tend to get pissed, because it makes apparent the futility of some of their approach. this often results in a flat refusal to broaden their perspective to incorporate this kind of information. what happens is they will deny in principle such counter balancing forces as speculative and in the absence of proof of their existence will proceed as if such a thing can't happen, leaving the decisive factor to the concrete and rational ones

    No. An LSE will respond to Ni not with "rationality" but with Ne. The basic conflict here is between Vulnerable and Mobilizing.

    Ni is about constraining, Ne is about expanding (possibilities). LSEs have a strong preference for the latter, as do ESEs. What you're saying is the exact opposite of this. Rationality has nothing to do with it.

    If you want to hear from a Ti lead type, I don't really do deepening of my understanding just to have it, it has to have an agenda in society other than just sitting on my ass and doing mental masturbation. That's how Ti as an Ego function works, having some use for it in society, i.e. it has an agenda, a Rational purpose to work towards with the thinking.

    Ni is about constraining, Ne is about expanding (possibilities). LSEs have a strong preference for the latter, as do ESEs. What you're saying is the exact opposite of this. Rationality has nothing to do with it.
    lol this is exactly what im talking about. you're making Ne about unmitigated acceptance of expanding possibilities, when its more about perception of expanding possibilities, it can easily be perceiving possibilities and finding them threatening in that they don't fit into the model, which is what you're doing here. what you are demonstrating is a kind of sympatico with LSE because you view similar things as threats, which is essentially anything that contradicts the rational model in the form of Ni. your recourse is to define it out of existence and insist on the model. Ne has been wholly made a servant of the rational model and it is a joke to suggest then, as a consequence of the model, it is about absolute acceptance of possibilities, as if it weren't a slave because the model says it isn't. you are in fact the one who has turned things upside down. because like LSE the perception has been subordinated to the "order of things", except in your special case, you've defined Ne valuing as being above such petty weaknesses. which is ironic, but typical. the model doesn't make it real, it just makes them foolish inasmuch as they insist on it at the expense of reality. in any case ESE is the one who gets excited over possibilities for their own sake. are we really going to pretend base thinking types don't get caught up in the conception of things and the resulting formulas at the expense of the true situation, simply because they value Ne, as if Ne isn't precisely the pernicious servant to such a process, when in any position but the dominant one. this is just another mode of "Te is objective and therefore correct" except its "Ne is open and therefore not rigid"--it cuts out all the contextualizing factors that offset this ridiculously one dimensional statement. base rationality is irreducibly rigid. its a basic tenent of socionics right down to how they physically hold themselves. to say its not a different kind of rigid is like absurd on its face without even going into the details. its more rigid by definition in comparison to the perceiving types, thus they're all on the rigid side. what remains is only the distinguishing character of that rigidity. the fact that you happen to find that character agreeable does not objectively shift its position with respect to rigidity. although you have made an impressive effort to that end. rationality has everything to do with it. QED

    Only Ti does that kind of modeling of systems, Te doesn't. I.e. facts and yes possibilities too have to fit the model. That's Ti, and I'm not going to repeat that again.

    QED lol...? Thehotelambush does not go by feelings like you do in forming conclusions.

    And go look at how real LSEs are actually open to Ne, not just ESEs.

    people are just thinking about it the wrong way, "rigid in a different way' is precisely that--try going into a situation where time is a constraint with LSE and tell me they're not rigid. people are presumably thinking about scenarios where LSI would be rigid and LSE wouldn't, but forgetting about all the other ones, because they're scenarios they tend to be comfortable with, which is more a product of ITR (by this I mean LII is precisely about managing time on their behalf). rigidity is associated with 2 things: rationality and norms. in the case of LSE if the time sense is inadequate the idea of "going by the clock" or the schedule, or the plan, is precisely the norm they fall back on "the gun should fire in the second act" is a Ne statement. the idea that only feeling types can be subjective or biased is antithetical to the most basic lesson of socionics. its precisely because people are subjective and biased that they can distort rigidity as only being a factor in situations they personally envision as being probable and unpleasant, which presupposes them at the center of it. to devise a whole system around it is nothing more than a gloss on "I personaly don't find LSE as rigid", when that is not the meaning on rigid. To say this bias is not in play is to assume that thinking is stepping outside of your perspective in a psychological sense, when thinking is really just a particular psychological state. its to short shrift the real insight to jung and socionics and replace it with a self aggrandizing structure based on one's own ego. to say "It's a misconception that they're just a different type of rigid whatever that means." is more like a statement of precisely this sort of guilt, which is to favor oneself and one's buddies and admit you don't even understand what's going on at the same time. As if the whole concept is somehow inconceivable. "whatever that means"--"x is like y, only distinguishable as a matter of perspective" is like the meaning of socionics itself, so its no wonder the bush devised an entire system to replace it, because apparently jettisoning this exact principle is the salient difference between the two models

    @Bertrand you are still not about thehotel's actual point, which was about how Ni is limiting and Ne is expanding, and while Rationality takes the dominant role, you can get an LSI to accept intuitive ideas via Ni, but not directly via Ne and vice versa for LSE. In practice I find it plays out as LSE being open to play around with more ideas and overall being more noncommittal about what's true/correct (devalued Ti and Ni, Te and Ne not limiting at all in this area).

    yeah exactly, you find. its %100 a product of the ideas you're running by them. do you think EIE finds LSE or LSI more open when it comes to exploring certain ideas. like I said this entire mode of analysis as to what constitutes rigidity is just ITR. the idea that you can't have got it wrong because mistakes arising out of bias are for feelers is just an annoying aside, as if possible bias didn't exist across every dimension including thinking itself, not to mention perception. in any case this argument is stupid precisely for this reason, how do you convince someone their personal way of looking at other types is a matter of perspective if they somehow think they're above it. if you want to reserve for yourself the godlike role of the "creator" as master of the model and not subject to it, the arrogance has already reached critical mass so I don't know why I bother (the great thing about Jung, which gave him real integrity is he didn't even "own" his own model in this way, in fact he routinely disowned it). these are precisely the kinds of judgements Singu is right to critique as being merely ultimately baseless, albeit well articulated, prejudice, not insight

    I simply said that you are mistaken if you think thehotel based the reasoning in feelings so that part of your response was very misguided.

    This is very different from claiming that only Feelers can be biased.

    I don't think what I said depends on ITR. Since Ni and Ti are limiting compared to Ne and Te, yeah LSI does take in fewer ideas.

    As for creating models, no one forbids you from doing so. Go on, enjoy.

    I can see what you’re saying, but I’m not sure why the LSE would respond with Ne when faced with Ni, versus respond with something else or just ... not respond. Could you explain why? I do think that people can compensate in general for their polr with the HA, just based on observation, but I’m not sure how this works in the specific instance where they are confronted with the polr IE.

    This doesn't say how this is different from the Ne PoLR version of marking the line in the sand and not being open to analysing more possibilities.

    I find I compensate way more readily with the Creative, which obviously makes sense as it's an easily accessible Ego function. Idk where you saw Sol respond with Ne to Ni?

    Oh certainly I've seen LSEs not being open to input but I've seen differences in how they do that. Either peacefully going on with what they were saying, and sounding noncommittal in that way, or being loud and completely ignoring everything (usually I've seen the noncommittal polite side though). When Sol ignores things I don't see him being loudly emotional like that even if I have seen him lose objectivity in his judgments lol - nor noncommittal when he does respond.

    I think it's Ti that Sol is rejecting, not Ni or Ne. His method itself employs Ne and Fi in it's usage. In other words, you have to use both Ne and Fi to use his video-typing ITR test.

    And the rejection of Ti is more along the lines of just favoring Te over Ti rather than some kind of polr hit or something. In other words, he's saying, "Use my method for the best results" and "don't get caught up in useless theory and explanations"

    I didn’t, my understanding was that hotel asserted an LSE or ESE would respond to Ni with Ne. I may have misunderstood, but anyway I was trying to figure out why and how that would work.

    My opinion is that in a long-term, general sense, development of the HA could mitigate the polr somewhat. But I don’t know how that would happen in a live polr situation and I had the thought that the ego is usually doing stuff so why wouldn’t it just keep going, why would someone revert to a less confident function?

    I think I was the most outspoken, if not lone, proponent of this theory, but I don't think its worth pursuing anymore. whatever I was seeing, it does not seem to be so straightforward. im not saying adam can't be SLE, but just that, I honestly don't want to commit to anything because I am not sure base type is something you can just assign to someone, either yea or nay. I think I have come to understand Jung's theory of therapy, with type being a kind of subsidiary, which is you haven't found the truth until both patient and therapist are satisfied with the solution, because its only in that kind of acceptance will whatever plan or idea really have the potential to be acted on. in this way, we can assign types in our head as a form of provisionally getting our bearings on the situation, but we need to always be open to revising it and improving it in order to better the situation. this includes being willing to bring our understanding in line with that of the outer world, especially in the form of other people, if we want to meaningfully interact over time with them. this doesn't mean raw capitulation but it means integrating feedback is an indispensable part of moving forward and not stagnating. in that respect I think my typing of Adam was based on axioms I no longer really hold, and even though it means revising my sense of what gamma represents, perhaps that is good and proper. I think I had an overly idealized and crystaline image of quadra which was in turn distorting and displacing everyone that did not comport with that image. in effect there is a system wherein adam is SLE, but it may not be one that is useful for communicating with anyone because it is its own self contained, albeit internally consistent, system with the fatal flaw that it has no way to link itself to the current situation on the ground as other people see it. until there is something to break that stalemate via objective sensory means, there is no reason to die on that hill when so much progress elsewhere remains to be made. another way to think about it is, perhaps adam is so SLE it is now simply that SLE = LIE and it is mission accomplished, even gulenko seems to allow for this in incorporating certain mbti'sms and so forth in recognition of their sheer intractability and relative unimportance in light of what all there remains to accomplish. in essence ideological purity for its own sake can simply become an impediment to moving forward and there's no reason to get hung up on individual's type past a certain point. ultimately its the big picture that matters. the entire concept of a person having one type, sticking to it, and essentially representing that type, seems to me to be a flawed premise, but one that is anchored in assigning the types names and faces, that at the time may have been a necessary evil but has revealed itself to have certain and significant costs as well. in the final analysis there is room for anyone to claim whatever they want, because the label is just that, its the introspective process of development, of which the label is just a starting point, that really matters. and where one starts is somewhat trivial in light of actually getting started and undertaking the journey itself. socionics is often hung up on precisely this first step, when I think it is not as important as it has been believed, and I was mistaken for falling into that same trap. for some, that is a game they will spend their whole life preoccupied with, but that is not how I want to end up

    Very easy to get caught up in typing to "git gud" in the beginning. It's acddictive to some, it's addictive to be right, we are looking for some truth to make the world fit and behave.
    World wants none of this.
    One can even push so far as to hurt relationships with assumptions, not being able to change subject and making people uncomfortable by trying to get in their head, asking too many personal questions.
    It becomes a challenge, a war to be right, yet which remains is what's left after the dust falls off, not the right.
    What purpose does it serve to be right anyway? No idea, but when two people who are right meet, they better have the same opinion!
    Beware of the clash of titans.

    Typing is difficult, takes time and understanding from both side, from the heart, the mind, for the relationship.

    An LSE will respond with Si and Te cuz those are his ego functions

    she seems too agitated for EII. I do not exclude Fe types, including superego still.

    This forum is a group of people coming together for the common good of socionics, hence it has a heavy focus on Fe. Fi types wouldn't be so silly as to expose themselves here.

    The makeup of the forum has varied a lot in the few years I've been here. The predominant types at any one time seem to be fairly random, other than IEI's being very well-represented and ESE's and LSE's being very scarce.

    There seem to be a lot of EII's right now. Earlier, there were more ESI's who were active.

    All Fi females are nuns like mother Teresa and live in cloisters so they don't hang around here. If sol aspire to get some dualization he should become a priest. The rest of females in the world are Fe types.

    Lol. Life is tough for LSE's.

    IME, Fi-dom females are a wide mix. Here is a pic of an ESI-Fi, https://i.imgur.com/905GrOy.jpg
    and here is a pic of an ESI-Se. https://i.imgur.com/G2GDMSx.jpg

    If you spend the slightest amount of time looking for Fi-doms, you can find these types and anything in between. If @Sol is having a hard time finding EII's, it might be that he has his blocking filters turned up too high.

    I have to admit, I shared with Sol a certain reticence at approaching duals. I felt that I was pretty far outside of my comfort zone when around Fi-doms and therefore kept them at a distance.

    I've said before that Fi commits pretty hard. Even 1D Fi does this. I waited until I was 25 to sleep with a woman because I just felt that I'd be completely committed to the first girl I slept with. Fortunately, an LSI was able to to dissuade me from that misconception, while simultaneously demonstrating the incredible benefits of dual Se/Ni and a shared Aggressor-Victim axis.

    Too bad I didn't understand that last part better when I met my SLI ex-wife.

    What helped me a lot with dating ESI's was to take very small steps forward. I was also aided by knowing and liking both of the women in the pictures above before I figured out that they were duals, so the concept of duality became a bit less scary. I enjoyed duality's benefits (mental comfort, shared values, etc.) before my anxiety about making an irrevocable commitment was able to get control of my feet to make me run away.

    There are other factors that can make one open about sharing experience, feelings, seeming open.
    First is choosing to do so. The choice of making parts of one's story available to others so they can learn and grow from it. Realizing we have received a lot in those tern and wanting to share too.
    Second would be emotional maturity. Just being able to talk about stuff like honest feelings, thoughts, looking for good communication.
    Third, emotional immaturity, making people prone to say anything, complain, say things they regret, don't mean in order to have attention. It's symptomatique of being unable to express what truly hurts inside IME, likely by being unaware of it, or not finding words/time, not wanting to for fear.

    Personaly, I know people who wants feeling talks so much they can impose it on others and be pushy af, perhaps to feel useful, helpful, on the same page, yet I consider this immature and impolite.

    Everyone has feelings and everyone can be in a place where talking about those happens, either to mask an other problem or by choice... even by purely breaking apart.
    You will never be heard if you do not dare speak up.

    I type to concrete types mostly by videos. Not many people put them to be typed. Introverts do it lesser. Among introverts EII are only 1/8. Also mb EII need lesser the help in typing, as Socionics is mostly about Fi and Ne - their ego functions. This reduces the chances I could typed someone to EII.

    Aki may put her video. Mb I'll type to EII her. Mb she's just very strange EII because of nontypes factors.

    ok, well maybe that means you shouldnt type people as much as you do before youve seen the people in action
    im not protecting this person i dont know anything about them but it just looks funny when you immedietly discard te people typed EII here because they act slightly rude, or whatever it is you pick up on
