    Default Do You Like Your Integration Point?

    Do you enjoy the idea of your integration point? Do you tend to like people who are the same type as your integration point? Do you enjoy being integrated or being "healthy"?

    If you're unsure of your integration point, here's a chart for reference.

    Do you like it when your areas of interest become more refined and you start to collect information about particular things in depth?

    The arrows indicate the dynamics of integration and disintegration.
    I love my integration point.

    I have aspired to practice Buddism and follow the Tao my whole life...and now I know why...

    Even though it's extremely contradicting to my MBTI type....womp womp...control freak.

    However when I'm able to find inner peace and bring peace to others around me, I feel fullfilled.

    I feel like I have ultimate power...and that appeals to the Te/Ni

    yes i do...but i still lack the patience most of the time. i only have a few interests that i study in depth actually...and that might have more to do with my sxness...not sure.

    i don't feel integrated.

    It's a bit contradictory in more than one way, considering that the typical E9 hardly exude power. IMO this reinforces the theory that integration points typify behaviors more than psychological attitudes. Internally, you're still focused on a locus of control like any type of the head fix, but externally, you're not anxiously searching for a system to trust. So, I'm guessing that from that POV, you can troubleshoot as a 6 without any hiccups because you're not consumed by the need to troubleshoot.

    I wouldn't mind being a 9, but I don't like the idea of acting like one now.

    My E7 ex wasn't sx and she still identified with the sentiment. However, sx would probably amplify your level of interest and even your level of impatience.

    I'm married to a 5, and love his 5-ness most of the time. I think I like that he is so cool and calculating while I'm much more fiery and spontaneous. It's almost like a built-in security for me since he's around to make sure I don't jump into anything too crazy. I help him loosen up and do things outside of his comfort zone too. Although we're both pretty comfortable in our roles, I definitely think each of us strives to be a little more like the other in that respect.
    You hem me in -- behind and before;
    you have laid your hand upon me.
    Such knowledge is too wonderful for me,
    too lofty for me to attain.

    Hmm...maybe I'm romanticizing the idea of an E9.

    I was talking about the kind of "power" one gets when they have inner peace.

    Like a subtle "steady river" power. hmm...hard concept to convey now that I think about it...abstract I guess...

    Anyways...you're right either way about the bold.
