    4. Human Intelligence

    5. Sober Realism

    6. Meaningful Life

    * Actually its not real confession, but more in a way of my belief that the universe through people wants to again find its most glorified position of finding love and oneness through the lack of it. (Fe-Ni, Ni-creative)
    Features of Ni speech
    Ni types naturally look beyond what happens on the surface to the underlying dynamics and thus omit many specifics in conversation. To Si-ego types this may give an impression that they don't know what they are talking about or are being intentionally vague which evokes suspicion. Ni-ego types may have difficulty putting their thought processes into exact words. Since these are dynamic types, their imagery is not static but evolving due to their progressive thought process. When you hear to them tell a story, it is similar to watching a video i.e. one easily sees how one thing leads to another (if-this-then-that).

    Ni types may talk in terms of probabilities and likelihoods when referring to past situations and information. When talking about future course of events, instead of using conditional tense ("what might happen") they will more frequently use affirmative future tense ("this will happen").

    Features of Se speech
    Statements of Se leading or creative types often reflect what currently *is* rather than how events are evolving (unlike Ni-ego types) since all Se-ego types are static. On forums, Se types may suddenly switch to writing in large font sizes in order to make an impact.

    Features of Si-speech
    A preference for mentioning details and specifics: instead of saying "a newspaper" a Si-ego type will specify, "my copy of the May 18 edition of the Atlanta Times that I picked up last Tuesday from Lucky's supermarket". Si-egos are dynamic types and will express how something has happened rather than how something is. Their speech can have a flow-like quality to it where they are listing a sequence of events supplying plentiful sensory details and specifics to their stories as they remember them.

    okay I'll share the little too, someone else can type it for me



    1. Happiness

    That non-concrete goal that if you chase in such a vague form, you'll end up nowhere.
    Or it's just "joy", or even more simply, fun and enjoyment.
    Strong satisfaction with life, basically


    2. Human Progress

    Uh, society gets further over the centuries and achieves more that no one even imagined before
    Better life standards, better technologies etc
    It's also ethical and intellectual and political progress etc etc


    3. Life Success

    Eh whatever you define it as
    Well ok, achieving your goals and having good meaningful deep lasting relationships.
    Nontrivial goals and challenges too


    4. Human Intelligence

    The neocortex in your brain gives it to you.


    5. Sober Realism

    Being a stoic you mean?
    It's important basics but boring if you only have that 100% of the time


    6. Meaningful Life

    Following your visions


    7. Truth

    Even when it's VERY unpleasant, you're willing to face the truth.


    8. Independence

    Opposite of dependence
    No emotional dependence ... not needing anyone
    Also just autonomy


    9. True Love

    Uh however you define it. It has to be grounded in reality though or otherwise it's just bullshit imaginations and you'll just hurt others chasing bullshit illusions



    Sorry I just can't write more about these topics.

    I don't see this as being a very helpful exercise, given that people can have word associations that aren't very indicative of their deeper thought processes (e.g. I thought of the word "penis" when I read "Happiness," purely because when you sound it out...). But I did it anyway.

    1. Happiness
    Emotion, sunlight, friendship, entertainment

    2. Human Progress
    Future, history, technology, singularity

    3. Life Success
    Strife, achievement, goal, ephemeral

    4. Human Intelligence
    Brain signals, pretentious, superior, insight

    5. Sober Realism
    Boring, concrete, straightforward, unimaginative

    6. Meaningful Life
    Existentialism, death, effort, temporary

    7. Truth
    Logic, epistemology, falsehood, postmodernism

    8. Independence
    Strength, individualism, help, nation

    9. True Love
    Happy, unrequited, rare, romance

    And true love wouldn't be true love if it was based in an illusion.

    In many cases true love is unrequited. It's when you show someone how much you love them despite their own disregard, until they realize how much they have been loved, and may be grateful or regret the loss of someone who truly loved them.

    1. Happiness
    A general state of contentment and abundance. The feeling that everything is okay, that you have faith that things will turn out well or that you'll be able to handle anything. Exists in the present moment only. Makes me think of summer evenings with friends where there's no where to be.

    2. Human Progress
    The general achievement and improvement of the human race. The belief that it's worth doing difficult things, not just for the sake of yourself and your own fulfillment, but for the betterment and furthering of human kind. I can think of good and bad sides to this (or short term leaps vs long term survival). Putting human progress above ethics and the environment etc can make for huge leaps. The Manhattan Project is a feat of human progress. I think real human progress comes from community and prolonging the survival of the human race though. Human progress is often associated with things we do that actually are self destructive and stifle the progress of future generations (i.e. technology advances that resulted in climate change).

    3. Life Success
    Pushing yourself to be the best version of yourself. Authentic living. Identifying what your values are and aligning yourself with them. Identifying what your weaknesses are and integrating them. Becoming the hero of your own narrative: simultaneously the creator and main actor in your life. This level of agency is successful living because from there you can define your own ideals of success (i.e. it's nothing to do with status symbols and prestige).

    4. Human Intelligence
    Human ability to communicate, understand, debate, theorize, problem solve. Ability to come up against a challenge and creatively beat it. And a level of consciousness to be aware that we're doing these things. Awareness of our own intelligence. Awareness of our own stupidity.

    5. Sober Realism
    Taking off the rose tinted glasses and staring shit in the face. Cutting through bullshit and baggage (primarily your own). Facing fear. Accepting vulnerability. Seeing it as it is.

    6. Meaningful Life
    Similar to successful life because I defined a successful life as a meaningful life. One where you've authentically prescribed your own meaning and adopted a level of agency to be able to achieve it. Spent the time bettering yourself instead of chasing after dumb material shit. Finding time for reflection, joy, love, creativity.

    7. Truth
    The straight up facts or logical maxims. Everything else is relative. I often confuse telling the truth with being right. It's not about that. If you're telling the truth it's about admitting your bullshit, your fear, your vulnerability. Most personal arguments aren't about telling the truth, or even about being right, they are about two vulnerable egos clashing.

    8. Independence
    Freedom and agency. Confidence and resources to not rely on anyone else.

    9. True Love
    Choosing a partner who helps you grow. Their idea of a meaningful life overlaps with yours and you make a commitment to muddling through it together. Support each other in achieving it. (Kindly) guiding them back on track when they are faltering.


    tbh I don't know that I recognise any of the above writing styles in ^^ this piece of writing. Here I'm just sort of saying statements almost in a detached logical way? You can get a sense of my values here (human connection, personal development, agency and authenticity), which might point to a F type, Se/Ni valuing. This sort of exercise wasn't v good at getting out my voice though because I was just answering logically whereas in real life I think either Fe or Fi would describe me more.

    Or like, if you ask me what true love is, I give you a fairly detached definition. If you ask me about my relationship, I'd switch into F style speaking ("I feel it's really special. He makes me feel great. He challenges me and we have lots of fun. I enjoy the domesticity more than I thought I would.")

    That to me isn't true love

    Happiness
    Fleeting, like a hard drug. The only thing that never changes is change.

    Human Progress
    More time, means more time for genius and lucky invention.

    Life Success
    Must be earned by denying opportunity to others since resources are finite. Human desire is infinite, we're never satisfied once we reach a goal, we always want more.

    Human Intelligence

    Dependent on genetics and environment, one of the most important things in life that's beyond your control. Not something to be proud of. Wisdom is more important than intelligence once you hit a baseline.

    Sober Realism
    Sometimes useful, sometimes painful and detrimental.

    Meaningful Life
    Having a long term surplus of positive brain chemicals. There's no reason not to live your life in a well made matrix.

    Truth
    Interpretation of fact.

    Independence
    Most people wouldn't be content with total independence, there's a balance between independence and dependence. Humans are pack animals.

    True Love
    Something that makes you forget about the cold inhuman world which humans happen to live in.

    Not sure which type this is supposed to make me.

    1. Happiness

    Good weather conditions, tasty food. People telling jokes.
    Unusual ideas and perspectives. Conversation about world view.


    2. Human Progress

    Get rid of dogmatism and prejudice, become less materialistic,
    don't ignore side effects of actions,
    replace dogmatism with true insight


    3. Life Success

    I guess I don't think much about success. Being rich isn't really important to me. I'm quite modest when it cames to poverty or owning stuff.


    4. Human Intelligence

    Can be used either for good or bad purposes. To my observation, a lot of people use thinking only when needed; most decisions are instinctive based.


    5. Sober Realism

    Common ground, reduce the subjective part of the own world view,
    don't ignore the environmental factors, e.g. limited resources


    6. Meaningful Life

    Discover some novelty, ideas that work in reality
    Share insight and knowledge with other poeple, discover missing objects or develop technical devices that other people needs.
    Understanding scientific phenomenon. Getting along with other people.


    7. Truth

    I thought everybody always told the truth when I was a naive child; now I know that's not the case.
    I see lying as a selfish motive to get the better of something.


    8. Independence

    I'm quite independent, I think; and I need to be that way.
    I'm critical towards most laws made or defined by other people, but I accept the laws of nature wholeheartedly.


    9. True Love

    Can't be enforced, it's more like a gift. I'm tempted to state it's the superlative of sympathy.


    Please decrypt this, Megatrop.
