    intp born or constructed

    In short: A leopard doesn't change their spots so easily. Although life experience might magnify or diminish innate traits, and shadow traits might become more observable, the inborn type, essentially does not change. + TiC, if subscribing to Jung's typological system, one ought to recognize...

    Work and me. What's my best option?

    I have more long-term counselling arranged now. So that's great. And it's not CBT. The counsellor whom I've started seeing specializes in 'Walking Therapy', which is a great idea, since it gets me outside of the house. The sessions are outdoor based. Although I see the benefits of jumping in...

    Socionics Vs. MBTI, what's the difference?

    Thanks for the link. It is useful to me and made some connections. Relates to other things. I like research for the sake of research to be honest. The history and branching of systems interests me, I feel the need to know every aspect and facet of a concept rather than shortcut (my 'NiTe'...

    Art of deduction

    FYI, and I'm sure it will be of benefit, here is the PDF of C.G Jung's Personality Types (1946 version). Perhaps that might shed light on the theory behind the models. https://monoskop.org/images/8/8d/Jung_Gustav_Carl_Psychological_Types_1946.Pdf

    Socionics Vs. MBTI, what's the difference?

    Indeed. It has inspired a full investigation, in fact, which necessitated obtaining a hard copy of the original musings of Jung: 'Psychological Types' (1923), which I finished reading last night as a matter of fact. I'm now looking into reading up on Jung's own sources, and delving deeper into...

    Honest Question INTJ/INTP

    INTP with INTJ brother here. +I know exactly where you're coming from. Although I'm not especially emotional myself, I can't deal too well with other people's emotions; they make me confused and nervous. -So I tend to avoid overly emotional people. Brother really doesn't seem to get affected...

    You are now the main character in an action movie

    I'd be a private investigator; an unlikely protagonist... Hunting for clues, slipping between shadows in the 3am streets... Researching into occult and esoteric but somehow connected areas... Creating perfect trap scenarios to stealthily extract information. Thinking so hard that clairvoyance...

    Yup, 4 types are rather limited^^ -White here too. White is as accurate a reading as I can get from this test (1/4). Most aspects fit.

    Avatar Experiment

    What's this about avatars 0.o -Simply, I changed mine because Polaris (@Ursa Minor) drew my attention to a constellation which bears a double significance for me. As you know by now, I'm raven-mad, and also enjoy considering space objects. Corvus is right next to the constellation of 'Virgo'...

    Cognition Conundrum aka Why am I a walking paradox.?

    I have nothing against you, I don't even know you ;) +I couldn't care less if some shrink or other decided you were a three-headed purple plesiosaur from the planet Zarquan. +I'll admit that I have issues with social anxiety. -I'm working on it, though. Regardless, welcome to the forum...

    Can this be art?

    Just to slough c.20th/c.21st biases... Here's an 1828 dictionary entry regarding the notably polysemic word, 'art': Art 'ART, The second person, indicative mode, present tense, of the substantive veb am. 'ART, noun [Latin ars, artis.] 1. The disposition or modification of things by human...

    Chill, drop the ego. http://i4.mirror.co.uk/incoming/article8446804.ece/ALTERNATES/s615b/Illuminati.jpgB@1 7.5bn people in the world, we're all special snowflakes. No need for the 97836756 labels. -BTW, fwiw, I know precisely what it is like to be misunderstood, misinterpreted and just...

    How do I type people without shoving a quiz in their face?

    The good old nature/nurture debate. You know it's variable on an individual basis ;) In general, women are statistically less likely to be xNTx. -Suggesting that some of these women arrived at that conclusion due to trauma further reduces that statistic... +TiC that people react to trauma in...

    How do I type people without shoving a quiz in their face?

    Nope, not at all. Pretty certain of my type (INTP), and the types of my family and friends now. I'm also pretty certain of who I am and what factors contributed to my being me (I can go back several generations there). Objectiveness is my #1 talent, which is useful for analysis. +Also, I...
