    Default If you could change your type, would you?

    To what?

    Or, if you could experience being another type for a week, which one?

    Enneagram type/stacks welcome also.

    Oh Ne you rascal. Well see, I am stuck with myself and I might as well learn to love me no matter how fucked up I am but ... just for pretend, it would be interesting to be an ethical feeler-y type that fit in with the real world a bit better and wasn't such a Beta weirdo circus freak show that I am currently. So maybe a IEE or ESE or SEI.

    If at all then I'd change my type to LIE... because I lack a proper business attitude and I'm quite careless about financial matters.
    I don't have the desire to be a sensing type, however.

    I lack sense of duty in matters that are out of my interest.

    If I had access to better statistics and validation of the theory. I would choose the type which was most likely to have positive intertype relations given what I believe that my long term social position will be.

    If I were just dicking around for a week instead of planning long term, I guess I'd try being a 7w8 so/sx lead Fe type since they're the most different from me. I'd probably learn the most that way, although it could be uncomfortable if I made friends during that week then reverted.

    Yes, definitely. Probably to an ILE-Ti, since they're the smartest of all 32 and since they need other people the least and since they get the most enjoyment out of life of all 32 and since they make the fewest mistakes of all 32 and since they appear feminine; the thing that's so amazing is that Ti-valuing types don't need relationships and they can figure out how to use devices/technology/machines that they've never used before on their own. And Fe/Ti types aren't as prone to schizophrenia, major depressive disorder, and bipolar disorder, they don't suffer from mood disorders like Te/Fi types can. And Fe/Ti types can make more money than Te/Fi types can, there is much more of a limit to what Te/Fi types can make. Fe/Ti types have it so much easier than Te-base inert subtypes. But there are many other (sub)types I'd rather be than what I am.

    I am tempted at times that I wish I just valued my super-ego, but I like being me or at least I try to like being me. I think people should try to find peace with who they are.

    LSE-1, I would want to see how I handle things better, differently or even worse. Some of the best advice I've got (but also some of the worst) was from Te-doms, especially LSEs.
    Runner up is SLE

    I don't know about Socionics type, but I would like to be more extraverted and slightly less neurotic in my temperament.

    Seriously to be ordinary would highly nonordinary for me. I could try that. Someone who can be present as I'm opposite of that. Just for few days. Sounds like Ip.

    Iíd also probably choose to be ILE for a week, but dude. This is stupid. Firstly, even if a type is ďsmarterĒ on average (whatever this means), this isnít absolute; certainly not all ILEs are intelligent. Iíve known a couple of ILE idiots. And they certainly make plenty of mistakes. ILEs might be better at covering them up, Iíll grant; theyíre egotistical and have enough Fe to bullshit away their blunders.

    As for appearing feminine...Uh, well, they generally arenít paragons of rugged masculinity, but there are plenty of other types that are more classically feminine.

    the thing that's so amazing is that Ti-valuing types don't need relationships
    Lol.

    and they can figure out how to use devices/technology/machines that they've never used before on their own.
    Because Ti grants magical knowledge of how to use devices specifically designed to be as easy as possible to use.

    And Fe/Ti types aren't as prone to schizophrenia, major depressive disorder, and bipolar disorder, they don't suffer from mood disorders like Te/Fi types can.
    ??????? Where did you get this idea?!

    And Fe/Ti types can make more money than Te/Fi types can, there is much more of a limit to what Te/Fi types can make.
    ILEs (and LIIs) are particularly inclined toward not working. Some ILEs are fortunate do work in a field they enjoy and can do very well in it; otherwise they arenít very likely to pursue money for its own sake, and try to work particularly little. They typically have pet hobbies and interests that command more of their attention. Compare with LIEs and to a lesser extent LSEs, who make up a disproportionate number of businessmen/CEO-type figures.

    Fe/Ti types have it so much easier than Te-base inert subtypes. But there are many other (sub)types I'd rather be than what I am.
    Fe/Ti just has different problems. Since you seem to ascribe all this difference to Ti and Fe rather than Ne/Si (odd, since youíre saying this about a Ne-base type), Iím telling you as a Ti-base that this is bizarre.

    I would say this: lots of people have no clue how to understand inner workings without some sort of extensive education. I have been in places where room full MA's and MSc's were learning to how to push a button and very attentively so. Or how to operate with pH sensor's controls. It seemed like they were learning it from step by step -wise while I was trying to figure out if could plug in SBC to communicate with a database or at least to export the results. It was like panic would hit the room if let's say a minor change in interface names would change the order in the menu.

    Mirrors are very close types. In case you'd had SLI, the main difference would be in dichotomies related. You'd dealed with most "things" with similar efficiency by slightly different approaches.

    > Some of the best advice I've got (but also some of the worst) was from Te-doms, especially LSEs.

    This depends on the region of the advices - are those fit to ego functions. Also personal experience, education, etc.
    LSE as types are strong with what they dealed personally. They tend to gather a lot of data about what was interesting and to find the best ways to use it by personal experience. Though it mb narrow questions and become outdated info after a time.

    You may also to have SEI type, as I said in the past. It's common to be interested in opinions of revisors. I like to hear what ILI may tell. LSE, SLE - it's all not far from SLI what you assigne to yourself. It's not common for people to feel the lack of skills related to their strong functions when compare themselves with other types.

    SEE-Fi, or ESI-Se. This is easy to answer.
