    Default What's your take on typologyC?

    My thing: hoped to have a feeling of community in here, quitted (no-one noticed), came back to share knowledge, give and take. Yours?

    In a nutshell?

    For as long as I have work that I hate doing, I have taken on a secondary busyness to keep me slightly distracted from work, enough to actually keep working, without getting terribly bored by the work.

    I stumbled here and I dunno, there's just so many things I can learn here that it kinda became more then just a distraction, for the moment. Although I'm sure, knowing me, that in a week or two I'll become a bit more casual and only abuse it to stimulate me at work.

    Came here primarily to learn about MBTI and typology. Stayed because of the community.

    i don't see this as community, because it's too heterogeneous and has no ideological agenda other than a basic believe in something like types.

    this is a good thing for me, because at this point, I don't want to bother myself about whether i can identify with a communal directive or not. especially not in a heterogeneous flatland place and not in a foreign language. i mean, i could not identify with any heterogeneous flatland place anyway, if it were required, and i want to be straight about it, rather than identifying with some aspects and wishing them to become more emphasized over time. i am done with somewhat conformist Fe ambitions/politics. it's burned out. i want to bring my networking on a more one-on-one/p2p level, which is not happening in foreign language Internet (for me), so i am operating in a relatively Fe-less mode.

    i don't care, that a lot of people have different theoretical ideas (mbti vs socionics) than me, because i don't learn by discussing about theories (i can form and evaluate plenty of theory on my own. i dream about this shit), but i learn by observing the personal aspects of people, that are flowing into what they say. so i am here for the people, not for their current thoughts or selfimage/understanding. (jus' saying cuz i was asked, what a socioncs guy is doing here anyway. btw, being a "socioncs guy" is not a part of my selfimage at all. cuz', again, i dont care about (written) theories, i care about observation)

    so, i especially like the heterogeneity and less affair style of the board. i could not find that, on a more theoretical board where people care more about developing typology being right about their latest brain fart. this is more of a "hang out and be yourself" community. (yeah, in that sense its a community i guess. without communion. an Icommunity *g*)

    my primary motive is "my idea of fun" plus wasting time.

    having an imaginary listener inspires me to channel my ideas into a more concrete form.

    Came here to learn about MBTI and learn about my type. Stayed because I met some people who were interested and willing to talk about the same random crap I was.

    I joined after reading only 5 some odd posts. Then spontaniously assumed that those few posts are how this joint rolls. Ya Crap Shoulda read more.

    I have noticed that it can make me think of 10,000 different things at once. (thus stains overlapped sentences thinking he did add the missing pieces) Yet all those things do end up as thoughts somehow ambiguously related to one subject. MBTI.
    everyone uses every function about evenly. take NE for example. if there are those who don't use it much, then why are there such massive amounts of people constantly flowing through Wallmart with 20 items or less?

    I actually think this place is largely a failure as a location for learning about personality type systems. Great if you want to observe the dynamics of them being abused and misapplied, though.

    I'm mostly here for the community these days.

Those two are debatable. I am also aware that i do it too. Refer to 1st 3 posted sentences here. Stalk some of my posts in my (stats) section in ascending order. Then observe the evolution of my behavior. It contrasts with the development of Fe accordingly. And
