    Your score is 57, on a scale of 0 (low self-monitor) to 100 (high self-monitor). You are neither a high nor low self-monitor.

    I got 49/100. It's says I'm closer to the middle.

    Haight should have the work by Snyder I described earlier -- he was actually the one who indirectly recommended it to me.

    I think my issue with Snyder is that he did not seem to distinguish between people who have high monitoring because they're naturally chameleons, whose "true self" is to mirror others in order to affirm and support them, versus high monitors who suffer anxiety because they do not have an intuitive grasp of how to navigate through the natural conflict of just "being themselves."

    (Or perhaps the problem is that they perceive conflict at ALL when they are "themselves" openly... and thus have anxiety where low monitors have none. Perhaps the friction of differences should not be perceived ideally as a threatening situation.)

    Anyway, what I am getting at is that potentially some of the extroverted types naturally begin and end with the outer world -- that is where their identity is -- and the way they mold themselves to it is not actually a rejection of their inner self.

    Introverts I would think would be more likely to high-monitor as a costume to protect potential damage done to a weak or unconfident self-image.

    But perhaps he wasn't interested in making this distinction, rather just exploring the monitoring behavior on its own merits, rather than being worried over motivation.

    *sigh* this goes back to my longstanding battle of hating The Man, yet wanting to be The Man

    Probably if there were more ESTPs here there would be more high self monitorers

    Unforunately his response was, "The percentage is low." I figured that much without reading the damn book.

    I agree. The online test in the thread definitely had questions geared towards extroverted self-monitors. I'm not concerned with pleasing people or the external world in general. Rather, I want to keep people out of my internal world, so I self-monitor. I wouldn't say that it's because I don't know how to be myself, it's just that I don't think other people deserve to see that side of me.

    I think motivation is important, and the fact that the book doesn't make the distinction between extroverted and introverted self-monitors means that I won't be reading it.

    lol... he sounds about as helpful to you as he is to me. (And I thought you were the one with an "in.")

    I have the book here, I'll see if it says anything.

    That's a good point. There's definitely a "privacy/boundary" issue and controlling access so only invested people get access to an individual.

    I think there is also a "freedom" issue that you hint at: Low monitors have to risk others trying to interfere in their lives, high monitors gain a certain measure of freedom around others by complying on the surface while meanwhile keeping their cards hidden. So monitoring acts as a social control mechanism meant to keep people out of one's business.

    EDIT: Skimmed through the whole book, still haven't found any percentages of population. Just all the medians and testing data.

    Combo of all of them. I was getting dizzy with all the abstractions firing in every direction, and it was my Low Blood Sugar time of day. And sub just sort of blew everything open, right when I thought I almost had a grip on it.

    (Then again, maybe you just thought I wanted to lie down, but I was only going to lie down because I was could tell it was what everyone else wanted and inside I was still standing up.)
