    Default New System of Typing?

    I've determined another method of personality typing. There are four axis...es? Axi? Whatever...

    • Axis one is the axis of Though vs. Emotion. Essentially Thinker vs. Feeler.
    • Axis two is the axis of Body vs. Spirit. Kind of like Sensor vs. Feeler, but also kind of like Extraversion vs. Introversion.
    • Axis three is the axis of Good vs. Evil, and my explanation proceeds thusly: Duh.
    • Axis four is the axis of Chaos vs. Lawfulness. Yes, I took the last two from D&D; they have a good system.


    It's really very similar to MBTI, with the exception/bonus of including moral alignment as well as general personality. However, my spider-sense tells me this has been done before, maybe, though a suspiciously quick search through the forums reveals nothing.

    Anyway, by this system, an ESTP, for instance, would be something a Chaotic-Whichever Physical Thinker (or a C?PT), depending on moral alignment, which I'm hesitant to speculate on in the potential presence of actual ESTPs...

    *short pause*

    See how I avoided talking about myself there? You must think me the height of humility!

    *very false-looking smile, accompanied by a period of silence both awkward and pronounced*

    ...Other INFs will understand that exchange, I expect. Also: Neutral. Moving on.

    I realize it's rather rough cut, but it does have potential (in my most humble opinion), and on a different, but related note, doesn't "Thereforth" sound like a word? It should be one; It's a good word. What say the masses?

    What happens if I fall into the middle of the Good vs. Evil axis? To use the D&D system, I've always been chaotic neutral.

    And are your first two axes expressed character behaviors like Kiersey or are they cognitive tendencies, beneath the surface?

    Then you're Chaotic Neutral. The four-character code would be set up thus:

    Lawful/Chaotic - Good/Evil - Physical/Spiritual - Thinker/Feeler

    The axi places don't change in the code, regardless of their orientation, so you could replace any of them with Ns (the letter, not the type), and still keep relative legibility.

    And are your first two axes expressed character behaviors like Kiersey or are they cognitive tendencies, beneath the surface?
    There's a difference? Each expresses tendency towards a specific mindset. Whether or not that bleeds through into the material plane is up to that surprisingly small portion of the mind we call free will.

    alignment tests always place me as chaotic good... it makes me slightly sad

    Which part: the "Chaotic", or the "Good"?

    the good part... chaotic was to be expected!

    I can't help but to be good despite the fact that evil is so much more interesting!

    Default RE: whatever

    The message I have entered is too short. I have thus lengthened my message by at least 1 characters.

    Slave to morality, eh? That happens, but good for you all the same, no pun intended.

    Look at this guy! Nodding like he knows what he's talking about! Oh wait! Now he's typing his inner monologue out for everyone to see! How delightfully satirical!

    Axis two is the axis of Body vs. Spirit. Kind of like Sensor vs. Feeler, but also kind of like Extraversion vs. Introversion.
    Can you explain this one a little bit ?
