Simple question: What do you identify as? As in type.
[–]AncientSpirits[S] 7 points 1 month ago
I identify with INTJ. I selected this in 1992, at age 22, and have maintained that sense ever since.

Thanks for doing this!
Would you mind saying more about which parts of the INTJ descriptions you identify with?
I ask because I have watched this clip and this clip with you and I find that you come across very differently from me. Even though I like to think that I make an effort to be more open and friendly than the average INTJ, I'd say you're off the charts in this respect! Also, the way you write doesn't resonate with me. Very often with other INTJs, I feel like I could see myself writing what they've written, but not so with you.
Of course whatever type you are, it doesn't detract from your work. I'm just curious.
Edit: For example, this quote of yours from above:
Having permeable boundaries is important--that is, being present as who you are, assuming you actually wish to be there. Adolescents are perceptive of phoniness and responsive to genuineness. I tell stories about my life and family--not intimidate stories, but ones that reveal I too am a person. (...) I am a secret rebel. That is the source of my smile. Most students are secret rebels, they just don't have a cause yet. You can give it to them....
Sounds to me like Fi > Te in your function stack.

Everybody's personality changes when they go up on stage!!! I know this isn't a great source, but it's just one example. And I certainty cannot speak for Dario, but I think pretty much everyone becomes different on stage.

I definitely identify with having a stage self. I'm actually very much at home with other INTJs off-stage. People who know me personally, including other type experts, see the unstaged Dario. That said, it's not fake. It's just a performance. John Beebe would prefer to NTJ-SFP as a spine relationship, and I certainly identify with that. As for boundaries, even though I mention the importance of permeable boundaries, I still maintain an acquire awareness of said boundaries all the time. I'm just aware that many things don't matter, so why not share them to get the desired effect? And like I say elsewhere, I've done quite a bit of NLP, especially in my early 20s. No doubt that, along with part of my upbringing in the Caribbean (an SFP culture), had an impact.

I've given plenty of presentations, and I'm good at it. I even have myself on video (no, I'm not posting it for comparison, sorry). I don't come across like DN does.
Also, in my comment I mentioned not identifying with his writing. That's a separate issue which you don't address. Do you identify with e.g. the part I quoted in my comment?

Well, I'm an INTP, and I'm new here (not new to Jung or personality type psychology), so, is Fi - introverted feeling, and Te extroverted thinking? I've noticed that the T/F distinction fluctuates pretty drastically within me. Sometimes Fi > Te and vice versa, depends on the situation and my mood. Are they one in the same? If you are Te are you also Fi? I'm definitely not Fe, and I'm new to this community and the terminology. I would call myself a rational idealist, in a very bipolar kind-of way..
INTP is what I associate myself with most often, but it's not who I am on stage for presentations or in my public speaking class. Sometimes I like to work on the aspects of my personality that are lacking, and when I write something or speak, I bring out qualities that might make me seem one way, when internally, it's the opposite of how I really am.
And the more we know about these things, the more we are able to consciously change our appearance for the situation. And I don't think that other INTP's would have the same writing voice as I do, or speaking presentation, even though INTP is the state we are most comfortable in and attracted to.

Nardi has always struck me as an SFP. He comes across fun loving and grounded. Gasp, yes it's possible to be an intelligent and academic focused SFP. Surprise!
Sounds to me like Fi > Te in your function stack.
Yeah. Also INTJ's are probably the most mistyped type, with ISTJ, ISTP's and INFJ's being possibly the most common real type.
What's worse, are those that strongly self-identify with a mistyping and construct a reality around it.
I mean for example (and this goes beyond Nardi), what are the odds that someone that professionally calls themselves type x for a decade, is recognized as somewhat of an authority, would actually admit to being wrong about their own type. Highly unlikely that many people on this earth would posses the intellectual honesty to welcome that.
He could be an INTJ, I guess, but the odds that any self identified INTJ on the internet, is actually one, is actually pretty low IMO.
People naturally find it difficult to grasp the abstract and conceptual nature of Ni dom with Te aux as it plays out.
