    Post LII vs SLI: What Are The Differences?

    I just want to know what the differences are between those types.

    Although there are exceptions. My LII sister doesn't have a beard, and my SLI son, while having a cat, also has a scraggly beard.

    LIIs are kids forever. SLI are old when they are born.

    Although both descriptors will apply to both types at times, each will normally remain on their respective sides:

    LII vs SLI

    planner vs observer
    methodological vs reactionary
    idealist vs realist
    naive vs aware
    detached vs interactive
    often blind vs often with tunnel-vision
    hesitant vs avoidant
    doubtful vs convinced
    over-the-horizon vs here-and-now
    consequence vs reward
    research vs practice
    overkill vs sufficient
    perfectionist vs expedient
    solo think vs brainstorm
    adapt information vs adapt thinking
    visionary vs guarded
    strategist vs protectionist

    a.k.a. I/O

    SLI: sends letter bombs due to broken heart
    LII: hacker on the loose due to convictions
    MOTTO: NEVER TRUST IN REALITY
    Winning is for losers

     

    Sincerely yours,
    idiosyncratic type
    Life is a joke but do you have a life?

    Do you have a list like that for each type or do you just write them on the fly?
    Because I think reuniting them under a thread would be interesting.

    LIIs and SLIs have a benefit relationship (LII benefactor, SLI beneficiary). This relationship can work smoothly or very awkwardly. A good childhood friend of mine happens to be my beneficiary. We get along famously, but hey, what do I know.

    I couldn't help but notice the CEO at my previous job, who was also my beneficiary (and who hired me directly) was often visibly intimidated by me. Mind you I have one of the lowliest jobs and could hardly be viewed as menacing. Something as simple as a greeting would leave him stymied. Which always struck me as strange, given he's a really impressive executive. Things got better over time, but not really, because there was a lingering feeling he was trying way too hard to impress me.

    Everything revolves around extraverted intuition in this relationship. The CEO announced a merger with a larger company, went through the trouble of lobbying the board and his employees, leading them to the brink with new policy handbooks and access cards, only to renege and pull back at the very last minute.

    My benefactor is IEI. A childhood friend of mine, who couldn't be any nearer and dearer to me, at times seemed aloof, like my internal world wasn't of much concern to her. Fast-forward to another IEI at the aforementioned company. She couldn't help but make me question my competence. Every interaction felt like high stakes.

    One is less annoying than the other.
