    Talk to me about it. What are some other ways to look at it?

    Responding- usually what I do.
    Initiating- something I am learning to do more of.

    And it should be written this way for flow and accuracy.

    Initiating/Responding

    on an interpersonal level you could call it The Doer/The Done To

    It seems that responding can cause initiation. ISTP's seem to be good at responding. But responding sometimes can cause me to initiate, as a result of. Responding shows me the need for initiation.

    It's the division in interaction styles.

    Initiating types are more comfortable with making the first contact and establishing role relationships. They like to engage others in interaction and conversation and are more fast paced.

    Responding types are more comfortable letting others initiate contact and accepting the roles established by others. They are more slow paced and are comfortable with silence.

    OH. I had no clue what you were referring to. I feel like a responder. Could that be E/I? Perhaps J/P?

    Responder is associated with introversion. I feel like an initiator in that I tend to throw a lot of ideas around and half start projects to see what works. I also tend to want to initiate contact and talk... this part depends on my mood a bit though, sometimes I'll be in the middle of something else I want to do. That is why I was interested in it. I know there are other terms, I just don't know what they are.
