This is my story:
My quest to learning socionics began with my strong interest in psychology. I loved reading about dichotomies between people and it began with the simple but inciteful, left brain-right brain theory. I find out I was right brained and I now know that in a vague and simplistic sense, irrationals are right brained and rationals are left brained. Though this theory wasn't enough and I began to read more psychological theories until I remembered or stumbled into oldham, which classified me as Inventive primarily.
After learning all of the oldham types, it led me to MBTI afterwards where I decided to take my first test without having any knowledge of it and I was honest in those answers as I could be. Ironically, I scored ENFP on my first try and felt the description fit well. I began to read the MBTI theory frequently and began to comprehend the types and the functions. I read most of the descriptions vaguely, though ironically I read the ISTP description several times and found it the most interesting before I even heard of inter-type relations. Unfortunately, I felt that a lot of my questions weren't answered with MBTI.
So I kept typing in questons about personality types in the search engine and it always led to this forum. I ignored it the first few times, but after several times of the questions leading me to this forum, I decided to check it out. For a month or so I was reclusive and only monitored the forum until I felt it was a right time to join. For some reason, Joy appeared to stand out like a sore thumb at the time. Cat and whoever had a Newman avatar who was LIE at the time also stood out. The forum felt very alien to me at the time, but I like the aura I receive when discovering something for the first time.
I began to start posting in the forum afterwards with a few topics here and there. I hadn't heard of socionics yet, so I just relayed my MBTI knowledge, probably annoying people. I remember Expat was the first member to point this out to me and then I began to learn socionics to its full extent after that. What I found most intriguing and alien to me at the time was the inter-type relations. I remember every forum member being extra helpful to to me as a newcomer, especially the IEEs though Expat stood out as the one who aided me out the most. Well that's my story, what is yours?
