This is to be my first post. I've done several typecasting tests a while ago and was surprised with what they told me about myself, even a little uncomfortable by their accuracy in some cases.
I'm posting a couple of questions because those who have been here a while have obviously gathered more knowledge and experience on the topic(s) by virtue of study and discussion, and can probably offer me a little bit of insight into myself, others and also simply to satisfy my curiousity.
Your commentary is appreciated
1. Do people often confuse your type with another? I.e., do people judge you for something you are not?
I am often judged in certain social situations with certain types of people (if the mood has struck me) as extremely extroverted and sociable. Some people can't (or don't) entertain the possibility that I'm generally an introvert even when I tell them. On the flip side, in other situations I shut up and try to interact with those around me as minimally as possible, and am mistaken for a social retard. And yet with others I get into endless discussions that are sometimes a bit too heated. I can't "mix" my personas or let part of one show in another situation. Is this a common "problem" for INTPs or does it occur in all types?
2. Typing and sexual selection. What kind of a mate excites your type the most and is there a good explanation behind this?
I find that I'm either turned on (probably superficially) by observing/talking to women who exude high sexual energy somehow, either through talk or body language.
In a completely different way, I think, though I'm not sure (and this is the question plaguing me for the past week) that I am attracted to women who are a little bit complex (?), structured/firm (planning wise), reliable, socially adept/extraverted, positive in their outlook who can also pay some attention to or challenge my ramblings. Is this a specific type I have in mind or is it too general? I also tend to be picky with physical form -- is this common to INTPs or am I just shallow?
