I came here first to understand others... then I learned a lot about myself... now I come here mainly for pleasing intelligent discussion and socializing, but I still definitely bring my interpersonal conflicts to the board for help with understanding, and continue seeking to understand myself better via typology theory - I tend to gather information elsewhere and process it here.
In terms of socializing, I work closely with about 6-10 of the same people 5/7 days a week, and usually spend the rest of the day and weekends with my family, boyfriend, and family friends, so I spend a lot of time face-to-face with people. I love that, but I also like to "socialize" here as downtime because it's low key and low pressure - there are still people I like and interesting topics, but not all the hustle-bustle of personal interaction. I can choose if and when to interact.
To be honest, I don't pay attention to what most members are here for, not in terms of individual analysis. Since it's a completely optional community, I don't really expect anything out of anyone here beyond basic human consideration. There are certain users I enjoy in particular, and those tend to be people who have been here for a while and whom I have a history of good discussion with, especially if it has been at a more personal level. And then there is a very small handful of people who tend to tick me off, generally because they ignite unpleasant conflict (which is quite different from being raw or bold). But in general, I am positive-neutral on most people, have a vague "concept" of them, enjoy discussing with them on topics we're mutually interested in, and don't really think about them much beyond that.
@greenfairy, you've never struck me as particularly egocentric. When I think of you, I think pretty sparkly green fairy avatar, undecided over INTP, INFJ, etc., and a fairly regular user. You strike me as intelligent and articulate.
