    Default Member Questionnaire Manatroid92

    Hey all. New here, but have been researching socionics for the last 2 months or so.

    Unfortunately I've been confusing my own type several times now, and I've just decided to bite the bullet and ask for some advice.

    It's probably worth noting that I am on the autism spectrum, and also sometimes suffer from anxiety. I don't know if the latter is actually related to the IEs in anyway,
    but I'm mindful that the former might impact my own understanding of how the IEs relate to myself, if that makes sense.

    Any, here are my answers to the questionnaire below.



    What is beauty?
    I think beauty is kind of a subjective thing, but when I hear the term I typically think of physical beauty, though not always in the sense of people (ie. this person is beautiful, etc.). Things like sunrays peeking through on a cloudy day, gazing in awe at an extravagant house that I will never be able to own, a warm smile that is meaningful and sincere.


    What are your most important values?

    Kindness, sensibility, patience, stability, integrity, humility. I don't necessarily have all of these values, but they are ones that I aspire to.


    Do you have any sort of spiritual/religious beliefs?

    Daoism, I guess. Not a strict adherent to it, but I have a lot of respect for what it promotes.


    Opinion on war and militaries? What is power to you?



    I wait for the day when they're no longer a reality. Power doesn't mean much to me, at least I don't treat it as something to value itself.



    What have you had long conversations about?

    Often if I have long conversations, they will be with friends or family. Most of the time it will be about something that interests me, or at least brings me a closer connection to the person
    in question. So I don't really have a huge amount to say on that.



    Interested in health/medicine as a conversation topic?

    Mm, not particularly. I don't really discuss it much unless necessary, or as part of a larger conversation.



    What do you think of daily chores?

    Well I don't like them, but they gotta be done sometimes, right? I can at least be inside my own head and think about things while I do them, and I feel a kind of satisfaction when I do them well.


    Books or films you liked?

    Typically science-fiction or fantasy stuff, and super-hero movies. I kind of feel a bit hesitant to say any particular ones here, though, in case I get ridiculed for them or something, haha.


    What has made me cry?

    Situations that made me feel like I was useless or had little worth. Those are the ones that make it difficult to not be emotional. But
    I tend to avoid crying unless I feel like I'm in a safe place to do so, I don't want to be seen doing it in public.



    What has made me smile?

    Baby animals, our cats greeting me when I get home from work, appreciating a moment of peace, and just general happiness/joviality.



    Where do I feel at one:

    When I stop and notice that everything is peaceful and harmonious.


    What have people seen as your weaknesses?

    Too easy to pushover, too timid, not thoughtful/considerate enough, not being aware enough of my surroundings.



    What have people seen as your strengths?

    I'm forgiving, understanding of others' faults, gentle/not wanting to cause harm to others, internally brave/perseverant.


    In what areas of your life would you like help?

    Trying to figure out my talents, if I have any, and how to best use them. Wanting to be more useful.


    Ever feel stuck in a rut?

    Yeah, sometimes, kind of like now, haha.
    I play a lot of games in my spare time, and I think about trying something new (crocheting is one), but I feel hesitant about 'taking the plunge'.


    Qualities I like in other people:

    Bravery, composure, generosity, compassion, discipline.


    Qualities I don't like in other people:

    Greed, aggression without good reason, flaunting of status/power, violent.


    If you were to raise a child, what would be your main concerns?

    I would worry that I wouldn't be good enough to raise them, and didn't give them enough attention and love. Most of the time I don't feel that I would be good parent-material.


    A friend makes a claim that clashes with your current beliefs. What is your inward and outward reaction?

    I'd be taken aback inside at first, and my first reaction would be to feel disappointed and maybe a tiny bit betrayed. But I wouldn't tell them this directly, I would probably try and
    discuss things with them, and try to at least give them something else to consider.
    Quite often I won't open up to people about my own beliefs for this reason in particular, as I would rather not risk coming under fire if they thought differently.


    Describe your relationship to society.

    I'm kind of an average guy, I guess, trying to get by. Don't have much money and just trying to make ends meet. I would like to be able to contribute to society in some meaningful
    way, but I feel that I don't have the resources or energy to do so.



    How do you choose your friends and how do you behave around them?

    If their general beliefs are in-line with mine, and we get along well, then I consider them friends.
    Depending on how close I am, I'll just joke around with them. If they're closer friends, then I'm much more willing to have more meaningful conversations with them.


    How do you behave around strangers?

    I treat them politely and positively, unless I'm in a really bad state of mind. I do my best to be patient with them, and I take into account that even if some people are behavingawfully, there might be some particular reason for it. That being said, I give them space, and I avoid them to prevent conflict.


    Thanks for taking the time to read, I appreciate it.

    Thanks for the reply.

    I’m thinking that IEE is maybe the least likely out of the other two, as I sort of avoid energy expenditure in an external sense, and a lot of my focus tends to be internal.
    But I could be misunderstanding how extroversion works in socionics, I know that it is definitely different in meaning to MBTI, though.

    EII and IEI are a bit conflicting for me too, though. They both seem to be more ‘people-oriented’ than I would expect myself to be. But I have scored both before on tests (as well as other types, unfortunately, haha).
    How does each of those types typically use their functions in both familiar and unfamiliar social atmospheres?

    i think EII has more of a tendency to be reserved and try to not expose themselves. This is related to Fi Te reputation thing. Te is about formalities and reputation. Fi leading would mean they would need to spend time with someone and get to know them personally and be themselves with them.
    IEIs tend to express more things outwardly in general. Thats Fe and Se. people (SLEs) tend to get attracted by that. since they are Ni leading their expression has a certain elegance. They can be awkward but it can tend to be some kind of awkward in a "cool" way? EIIs tend to die internally more instead. That said IEIs also tend to be more loose with people they consider close.

    this among questions u chose and answered makes me guess u would be rather people oriented.
    hypothetically you could also not necessarily be INF, but say Harmonizing ILI but i really doubt that.

    Yeah, I understand what you mean.
    By Ďpeople-orientedí, I more intended to convey that interacting with people is of a greater focus to those types than, say, focusing on other interests or hobbies that they might have. Itís difficult for me to actually determine that, though, it is more that Iíve seen it mentioned in different sections of socionics (like here, for example) on enough occasions that I assume itís mostly true.

    But again, I likely donít have a wide enough perspective or experience.

    I would possibly say SEI, ESE, or EII.

    You seem to value Si/Ne. I just don't know polr or your dual seeking function as of yet.

    they are still introverted. maybe if u are ennea 5 EII u would be more solitary for example. if ur autism has related hypersensitivty or social issues that would make u prefer to be alone. then especially if u have had bitter or unfulfilling experiences with other people. It is a stereotype for IEI or EII to move live in some forest far away from everyone else.
    If you are not INF then u are xNTx but least likely seems LIE.. that im sure of.

    Hello MissDucki.

    I definitely think my Se and Te are weak, not certain on if either is PolR, though.
    I donít think Se necessarily would be, as from what I understand that usually manifests as like a sort of ignorance or rejection of power-dynamics? I know there are other traits, but that one seems so stick out the most from what I know.

    Si and Ne valuing is possible, it is difficult to ascertain how much, though.

    I have typically gotten E9, E5 and E6 on tests before, usually it is E9 that seems to appear the most (I have tried delving into tri-types before, but I personally havenít given it much weight in the past, though itís possible that it could be for this purpose).

    I donít know if itís socionics-related or not, but I typically do keep my autistic tendencies Ďin-checkí when interacting socially (try to not fiddle/fidget too much, try to look at who Iím taking to instead of away from them). That is quite possibly from me improving upon it after I was diagnosed, though, so not sure of any connection to socionics there.

    I generally have a positive outlook on people on the whole, I think, and I canít say Iíve had any real Ďbitterí experiences more than most. My hesitation, I assume, is normally from being aware of my own disadvantages due to being Ďneurodivergentí, as they say.

    If it helps at all, I could do a VI typing thing, when I get the time to. Which would be the best kind to do, if any?
