    Default What are your best qualities?

    You can relate these to MBTI type or not, but it seems a useful thread to take time to examine what traits you like the most about yourself. Feel free to mention traits you value in others as well.

    (Trying to keep this as MBTI type universal as possible because ofc these have been my experiences with the interactions with these types).

    I really value how dedicated and loyal ESTJs are. There's a lot of crap I can't think of any other type enduring and doing for the sake of those they care about. They would do absolutely everything for their families. Emphasis on the word do. Caring means deeds, action speaks louder than words, so it must be a helluvalot then. I value their caring, I reckon there's a really fuzzy and loving little thing inside each ESTJ that they're just mortified to actually show to anyone, in any other form than they do, ofc. I value that they also seem to have their own set of values they live by. I value, or not as much as that, as like how multi-faceted they can be. Someone said in another thread how they've never been as suprised by any other type as much as an ESTJ, and I can see why. As soon as I've formed some kind of an opinion about them, they come off from the left and do or say something completely unexpected and put themselves in a completely different light, again. I value their thoughtfullness as well.

    I really value how loyal and family-orientated ISFJs are. I value how much effort they put into their relationships and everything they find important. I appreciate their genuine care for people. I value how good they are at making time for all their priorities and the dedication they put into it. I value them for being so soft on others and trying their hardest never to hurt anyone's feelings. I value their modesty! My Buddha, they're usually so modest I feel bad if anyone dares to take them for granted. I value they're nowhere near show-offs and usually surprise (much like the ESTJ, actually) the shit out of me with everything, usually most strikingly of how intelligent, analytical and thoughtful they are.

    I really value INFPs a great deal. I may not always understand them, lord knows I've tried, but I think I can see where they are coming from and really, from the bottom of my being, genuinely appreciate their deep feeling, easy-goingness with stuff, natural diplomacy and acceptance of people. I feel they're so much better in these areas than I'll ever be. I also feel really bad that it seems like they're not getting enough credit and also feel bad that I have misjudged them so wrong before. To me, they're the enigma. I also value of how humble they seem to be and also find their strive for perfection endearing somehow (although ofc to the person him/herself it must be a real pain in the ass, trust me, I know). I really also value their patience, you can look but you'll never find a more patient creature than an infp. I also value the fact that they just... They truly understand their fellowmen, a person, if they want to, even if they might not verbalise it directly, they do, even better and even deeper I'll ever be able to (I don't have the skills, or the patience). I also value how much they appreciate a person as who (s)he is, as a human being. I value their gentleness a lot as well, their company always makes me feel calm and just _better_ even when they wouldn't even be saying anything.

    I really value ENFPs for taking me out to their wildrides and being so expressive and honest, xNFPs have a way about them to make me feel accepted and appreciated, probably even so much more I'd ever deserve. I value how much fun they can be, while being strangely focused to their goals and ethics at the same time. I don't know how they manage to do that actually. I really love their Ne, going all over the place like a rabies bunny, trying to catch it is like following a firefly. I value how much value they put into their relationships and to those they love. I value the fact they also never forget to show it to the ones they love, never, no matter how far they would've gone with their Ne, or just, physically. I really value their values, that are usually very humane. I really value the fact they value me back, too (not a common, or a usual, thing), and never forget to mention it, I just know they bring so much joy and humour to my life I've been disarmed by every enfp I've encountered in my life, and for just that, I value them.

    I might want to do some more of these later

    Best qualities in me: Loyalty, adaptability, improvisation, good decision making, true to myself and others (although not as much as I'd like to be).

    In terms of others, I'll accept almost anyone as long as:
    1. They value the interests of others to an extent, as well as themselves
    2. They are true to themselves and others
    The probability that I was procrastinating when I was typing this post:

    P(have big assignment due) = 0.6
    P(posting on TypoC) = 0.2
    P(having big assignment due | posting on TypoC) = 0.7

    P(posting on TypoC | having big assignment due) = .......


    Eh, I'll finish it later.

    What do you think your worst qualities are? If you don't mind me asking.

    I don't white wash the base aspects of myself. I own up to my own arrogant thoughts (privately of course lol ).

    I'm most attracted to perceptive people who aren't into bullshitting. So l guess people who are less dominated by their ego (which is a form of stupidity so i guess i should really just say intelligence, although it's a different intelligence from what most people normally call).

    My worst qualities? I have lied, I deflect, I tend to take responsibility for too much on the inside and too little on the outside, I don't know how to respond to some emotions, I can be extremely shy, I usually don't value the opinions of people who refuse to see reason, I can't hold grudges, I can sometimes unintentionally initiate fights, I can be defensive, I'm afraid of being thought of as a bad person, I can be too clingy or too distant....wow, too many to list.

    - You know when you're standing on a pier, anxious about jumping into the cold water? I'm good at overcoming such feelings and just go about doing what I must.
    - I'm a wandering (incomplete in some areas) encyclopedia.
    - Excellent auditory memory and memory via association due to the fact that I have a neurological condition called synaesthesia.
    - I'm creative.
    - I know how to get things done, and I can do it if I just exercise my skill of "jumping into the cold water" as described in the first point.
    - Multilingual and still learning.
    - According to others, I can be quite eccentric. I don't make an effort to be that way, but it just kind of happens.
    - People generally like me, at least IRL where I don't vent impopular political beliefs as much if at all.
    - 99.9% of the time I do the right thing. If I fail to do so, I correct the error.
    - This isn't about personality, if we're not going to fall for the whole physical phenotype thing in socionics... I'm physically intimidating. It's probably due to martial arts training. I know I move with a certain grace even if i'm built like a brick wall.
    - I now feel somewhat disgusted over this wallowing in self-admiration... I will now create a thread which lists non-admirable traits.

    Mightier than the tread of marching armies is the power of an idea whose time has come
