    I'm not comfortable showing my face online for people to see, even though I'm considered very attractive by most people (not gonna lie lmao). However, I can definitely do some questionnaires, if there's one that's good.

    Surreal typings are definitely welcome though.

    @Surreal, let me guess from your avatar picture, in descending probable order. 70% IEE-Ne, 20% LSE, 10% LIE.

    Or did you mean, "type you with a questionnaire"?

    If I were to consider your profile picture, I'd have to add EIE.

    Lmao, that avatar picture does look a bit delta, even though the movie is not. Anyways, its from Perfect Blue, and I don't think the protagonist is a good indicator of my type.

    By questionnaire, I meant those interview questions that people type out. I felt like if I were to write it out, I'll be biased towards certain types.

    I think that's why questionnaires work.

    The problems come in when you consciously bias your responses towards those of a particular type. The ability to game the test like this is an indication that the test is not very good. However, so far, tests are what we've got.

    When I was admitted to the U of M, they were trying to weed out the radicals who would burn the place down. They couldn't really ask the incoming students if they liked to set University buildings on fire and overthrow the US government by force and violence. For some reason, they thought that people inclined to having such intentions might lie about them. So they devised a more clever test.

    This test consisted of hundreds of yes/no questions. Do you like cooked carrots or raw? Do you take stairs one at a time or two? Do you like girls with stockings or without? Individually, the questions meant nothing. As a group, they formed a pattern, and that pattern could be matched with the patterns of other people. People who were radicals.

    It was much better than asking you if your grandparents were Jewish, but it was getting at the same answers, and for the same reasons.

    So far, Socionics lacks such a test.

    Personally, I like the test at Sociotype.com, the extended test. But there are many others and it's probably a good idea to take a number of them and set the results aside for consideration and interact with the people here.

    Do you think you could be IEI-Fe? I think your avatar picture admits that possibility and your user name is Ni. Your profile picture points towards Beta. Your verbal style is direct, which I associate with either Delta or IEI-Fe.

    I meant the interview questions people write as posts. I'm just interested in getting people's opinions on my type, the post about IEI-Fe was me trying to type my brother.

    That could work well. I don't know where that questionnaire is, though. Maybe someone else here does know.

    Wait. Found it. Or found several. https://www.the16types.info/vbulletin/forms.php

    There is no danger to show you, except you'll then use same account for something "bad".
    Without video it's better to use tests. It should give not worse accuracy than to be typed with high chance to get incorrect type due to lack of the needed data.
    The link to tests was in recommendations.

    @Sol I've known people who knew about Socionics, and a handful of which I don't get along with. I'm afraid there's going to be a lot of complications if I were to post a video.

    Anyways, I'm not interested in posting my type regardless of what it is. I don't want to be involved in arguments I've seen in the past, and I'm just interested in what other people would type me as.

    @Surreal
    The only significant complications may be in case of incorrect understanding of own type. In this case you'll not understand much of Socionics alike IR. And may get a harm from making decisions based on the mistake.

    If you want a help with your type - you may place a video in the thread or pm.

    i'll try to type you if you read through my questionnaire.
    a forum member named expat used this question to type people.
    1. how do you imagine your retirement if things work out the way you want, realistically? where would you live, what would you do?
    2. now imagine your retirement if you were rich. what would you do then?

    @pississippi I don't know how to answer those kind of questions without any preconceived bias.
