    Default MindType : a weird variant of MBTT

    Be prepared. It's very hard to interpret.

    I don't think I can explain it accurately...

    No need to try explaining it... there's a lot of BSing included in that particular site that I ripped apart way back in INTPc...

    Edit: Oh... they did come up with something new... Hmmm my apologies... *goes read*

    What the fuck?

    You probably can't explain it accurately, because the engineer in charge of designing it can't...

    From my quick scanning of it, they're basically trying to find a more accurate typing system, I guess for people who are say INxP. where they draw from two different types.

    They seem to be attacking the issue by trying to separate how one gathers information, and how one acts on it. Then combining those two to create their "synthesis" type.

    So instead of 16 main types, they're trying to break it down into 288 types.

    It's some what similar to Enneagrams with the wing and sx/sp/so modifiers.

    At least thats what I got from it though I only read part of one page, and scanned another.
    [SIGPIC][/SIGPIC]
    Fe/Fi 36.9/37.7
    Ne/Ni 34.9/25.8
    Se/Si 25.7/19.5
    Te/Ti 28.4/31.9
    Type: 2w% sx/sp/so

    I don't want it, I just need it, to breathe, to feel, to know I'm alive.

    Never take life to seriously.. No one gets out alive in the end anyway.

    I don't get it- is there a test there for us to take, or is it just reading?

    I like tests, but just reading something that can potentially confuse me? Not so much!

    Looks like reading to me... Just theories. I think the person who wrote that is an INTJ/P... the way things are described fits the bill.

    It gave me some ideas to play with regarding to cross function interactions anyhow... eg Ni/Se, Ti/Fe. The rest of the "mathematical reasoning" I'm going to have to go back another time to reconsider. Intuitively though, it seems to work. Just not sure why things were set up that way other than to get the model to fit.

    I read it... it was complicated and I didn't understand all of it. I got some of it, but I think they didn't use English very well. I spotted grammatical and spelling errors (I don't mean "xor," I knew that was a word ). They could have explained it better... I was only able to understand what they were saying at all via the pictures (and I'm bad at interpreting pictures), their words were very vague in some cases.

    I've already thought of the opposite function interactions in another thread I posted a long time ago, and I think I explained it better. But it was so long and boring no one wanted to read it except a couple of INTP's and an INTJ.

    Their explanation of this aspect was shorter, but too graphical and complex. Mine was easier to follow, but too long and dull. I'm guessing that shows I'm a g synthesis type, and the writers of this were likely r synthesis types. I think I elaborated on and tried to completely clarify something they mentioned too briefly as part of something larger.

    And probably INTP because that's the type they kept using as a prime example.

    I spent five minutes looking for SOMETHING to understand and it was remarkably impenetrable. S/he definitely needs someone else to explain the ideas, because right now only the writer (and a small subset of the population that commonly use computer programming style terminology, at best) are going to grasp anything.

    Is that what that was? Computer programming lingo? I thought it was just some weird logic system. Actually I should have known better... the binary vs continuous stream should have given it away. I think it's slowly digestible... but yes a rewrite into something the common populist can understand would be nice. So anybody here up for the task?

    Wow - that user interface is soooo intuitive.
