    Default What type would you be?

    ..if you could choose, besides your own?
    And what quadra?

    I'd be ESI or EIE.
    Gamma.

    @StarPath, I may have mentioned that you strongly resemble a woman I know, whom I type as ESI-Se 6w7. Her first SO was an SLE (although that didn't last) and her mother, whom she is really, really close to, is an EIE.

    I find it interesting that you also find these two types to be appealing.

    I've thought about this question for a long time. It was actually asked years ago in another thread on this forum, and I didn't have a good answer then and I don't have one now.

    I'm quite happy being LIE-Te, 8w7, sx/so. Being this type has a number of serious problems that I'm well aware of, but it seems to me that all the others are worse to some greater or lesser degree, for reasons which I judge as an LIE-Te. Lol.

    Would I want to be a more ethical EII? Yes, but the ones I know struggle with being effective.
    Would I want to be a stronger SLE? Yes, but the ones I know struggle with the law.
    Would I want to be a more aesthetic ESE? Yes, but the ones I know seem to float with the wind.
    And so on and so on.

    If anything, I'd want to be a more effective version of myself, but the best way that I believe that could happen would be if I were less accommodating to other people and slightly, maybe considerably, more sociopathic.

    I'd also want to get rid of my recurring low-level depression which, when in effect, slows down my ability to get out there and do more more more stuff.

    I might be an ESI-Se 1w2. I think that ESI and 1w2 go very well together, since ESI is described as a very organized and moralistic person. I admire SLEs from a distance due to their leadership abilities, but I don't think that IR would work well. Their Fi PoLR would really tick me off.

    I think that the "admiration from a distance" thing also applies to EIEs as well, because I used to admire xNFJs (in MBTI sense) for their commitment to moral issues. Beta NFs may be too dramatic for my taste.

    @StarPath, I'm not here to tell you what type you are, or to try to convince you of anything. Unrequested typing is the third rail of Socionics to me. Plus, I'm Si-PoLR, so I'm very aware of the fact that my ability to judge aesthetic forms (which personality typing is a variant of, at least it is in the way that I approach it) is completely incompetent.

    I'm just interested in correlations and in learning more about people so I can make better predictions (and, truthfully, better collaborations), so I appreciate your (and other's) comments on why you think the way you do.

    And yes, the ESI-Se gave the SLE-Se a look that could burn concrete when we were all in a store together and the SLE did something that the ESI didn't like. Lol. I didn't notice the SLE doing anything particularly bad, but that's just me.

    ILE, I think. I tend to like them, and they generally have a good attitude toward life. After that, ESE.

    If I had to choose outside my quadra, perhaps SEE? Also I might consider EIE. I tend to like them, but I'm not sure I'd want to be one.

    It's not so much that I want to be another type, but rather I'd like to take a break from some of the things that make being an IEI difficult at times.

    To be an energizer bunny version of myself an Exxj type would be nice. To be less impacted by the emotions of others and draw in people that I like I'd choose Fe PoLR or Fe ignoring.

    Maybe Gamma? It would be interesting to explore the dark side...

    Gamma - nope lol
    Beta - IEI is the only type I would like to be. Well, tbf I am kind of drawn to STs in general. It would be weird to be Fi PoLR. I wonder what that feels (heh) like.
    Delta - if not EII then maybe SLI. I guess I prefer introversion.

    So I would pick EII again but if not that then maybe another Ne ego type.
    What's wrong with Gammas? Lol.

    Haha. I just found it interesting that you thought you might like to be an "intelligent Alpha NT" but wrote off Gammas completely, even though they have NTs too, and presumably also intelligent ones.

    I've noticed Ne egos seem to often be attracted to other Ne egos though. I'm not sure if it's the same with users of other perceptive functions.

    SEI, ILE makes my sides split. This one guy aggressively role played as a very realistic old man seducing a minor, a very earnest tiny skeleton warrior named Scrappy-Doo, and on top of that deconstructed the logic behind why necrophilia is acceptable. He also has a 1800+ score on chess.com and offered to give me tips. Another guy just likes undressing himself and is obsessed with something called a "conkey," also likes collecting stuffed animals and making stories with them.

    IEE makes my sides split too. This one person ate a One Piece Devil Fruit and gained rubber powers (like the main character of OP). There were guards and they turned into a large bouncing rubber spring and started aggressively shouting NIGHTMARE NIGHTMARE NIGHTMARE to daze them. Also rubber-armed puppeteered another female team member who originally got a really bad roll on attractiveness and managed to seduce someone by doing their best female voice. On top of that he gives good relationship advice and is everyone's therapist. Another IEE guy made a whole essay on why he should deserve to be able to eat puke due to being bird-fed that style by his mother.

    Every other type just has too many cons. Too rigid, boring, shallow, stupid, likely to go broke, weird romancing, or if they aren't then their dual is. Stereotypical Ni-Se romance is icky.

    edit: changed my mind,
    SLE women are really really hot so IEI
    Esdeath can dom us

    Any extroverted type, though I guess I'll go with ESE or LSE.

    Delta Quadra.
    I want to believe, therefore I question everything. I pursue the truth, therefore I eliminate all lies. I crave the ideal, therefore I defy the world.

    I'd like to stay myself, but just absurdly rich. Actually, they all seem fine as long as I'm absurdly rich.

    Probably SLI. Turn into a Warren Buffet clone, make a lot of money and retire on my own island and not have to ever deal with stupid Fe fads ever again.

    I feel lowkey doomed to being trapped with the personality and characteristics of a teenage boy forever.

    OTOH do I think other types are any better? No.

    I don't really want to be anybody else, just a better version of me. Sorry that sounds throw up worthy self help book-y but it's the truth too. Why envy and be somebody else, they surely don't want to be me either. Love your victimy IEI ass. IEIs of the world unite, and do absolutely nothing but be cute & victimy.

    Some do. Others not so much. I wouldn't want to be ESE, SLE, ILE, EIE, LSE, ..... And that's all I think.

    But the absurdly rich part sounds good.

    Doubt lvl 1000. That's not an IEE. Dominant Ne isn't about finding retarded random "funny" ideas to write about in order to showcase one's "creativity". That's what low dimensional wannabe tryhard Ne users do. Dominant intuitives actually take their ideas seriously. So if the dude was really IEE, he would be eating puke right now.

    Lmao the little guy’s 15 and he was doing this for a fantasy roleplay thing as a dragonborn with acid resistance. He regrets it now and I like to remind him about it every moment. Personally I think it’s hilarious, love the chaotic crackhead energy he radiates, no matter the type. Chaotic energy is always good, everyone should indulge in more everyday stupidity, more laughs!

    Speaking of which, ILE friend created an entire wiki page for his sexual fantasy creature conkey! (cow+donkey) Includes in depth guide to mating ritual behavior and conkey development. It’s so idiotic I love it

    he might be SEI actually not sure

    AW MAN I JUST REALIZED
    that his character’s backstory was probably inspired by his real life
    absent mom + protective of little sister + poor upbringing
    That’s so sad ;-;

    wonder if the puke’s a metaphor??

    edit: ik puke part was a joke im terrified ppl here misinterpreting my sarcasm lmao might unironically start using /s like some filthy Redditor
