Yes, I had a thread in the Gamma Quadra about being an ESFp (SEE), but I knew that something didn't fit in terms of how I:
a) Processed information in terms of IMEs.
I knew straight off the bat that my Se was good. I also figured out that, prior to learning about the IMEs and how they worked within types, that my Fi was not 3D, and my Fe was definitely not 4D.
Yes, people can "form relationships" with other people, but the processes behind why they do it, and if they can maintain them are very different from just "Fi = making relationships". The content of the relationships also matters, and if you can distance them properly or whatever. I realised that I am actually terrible at those and at being intimately close to people and letting them in. It also stresses me out when I have to force myself to find something to connect to a person with. Yes, I write stories, and yes I can make a "relationship tree" for the characters, but that's not the main meat. Superifically, I understand how and why I could come across as "ESFp" like, and I understand how and why ESTp with decently developed Fe HA do this as well. It's more like a necessity and a coping mechanism in some cases rather than something that automatically occurs. Forums are a very social place, and you have to use Fe to get by.
As for 4D Fe, I am not a very expressive person all of the time, and I can be awkward sometimes. Yes, I can express myself in the moment if I want to, especially in party settings but I'm not always scanning the atmopshere for the right thing to say, nor can I do it all the time. I'm more focused on practical action and getting things done. I like to organise things, and sometimes people and I like strategies and figuring out how things work and the logic behind them. Look, I'm a good arguer if I want to be, and I can charm people but I'm not really a people person in the sense of 4D Fe. I can express myself, but not strongly. I'm also not really that positive compared to an SEE. I also can see a lot of Fe HA traits within me.
b) "Formed relationships" with other Gammas, especially ILI.
Trying to form relationships with and understand ILIs just isn't happening. A lot of them (not all) are unlikeable to me in comparison to Beta NF types. And other SEE. Most SEE just flat out say that I am SLE. I think I supervise ESI more than I "bond" with them and LIE are alright. I just don't get activated from them. I suspect that the ones who "say I activate them" are actually EIEs mistyped.
c) Said behaviours don't always align with said type.
Again, SOCIONICS IS NOT A THEORY OF BEHAVIOUR ALONE. It's a theory of IMEs and putting those blocks together to create a type. It's about how those function within the psyche, and not just how one acts on the outside. IMEs and personalities are seperate parts of the whole, but that's another story for another day.
d) I was going through an unhealthy patch.
I was stressed for a while. I noticed a lot of unhealthy coping mechanisms stemming from my thought processes when I looked at everything. I noticed how unhealthy the content of those were. I took a step back from Socionics and analysed things. It makes sense why I was getting numerous types. All the toxic stereotypes, misunderstanding of IMEs and the processes made things harder to calculate.
I also suspect that me being an Se subtype had something to do with it as well, being harder to differentiate between the systematic nuances of Fi and Ti within my psyche. Of course, I have nothing against Gammas. I just knew that when I added everything together, I wasn't one of them.
Anyway, here we go again.
