Quoted from my recent thread:
I have noticed when participating in discussions on the forum/vent (and IRL) that I like to use other members/people as sounding boards to bounce my own ideas against. I will sometimes refine my ideas following their feedback, to the point that it might appear I am disagreeing with my own previous statements. Other members sometimes highlight a point I didn't consider, or their own statements lead me to examine my idea from another angle or perspective, and I then might refine or tweak my ideas accordingly, if I think they are sound and logical refinements/tweaks.
In other words, I thrive off of discussion with people, despite my leanings toward introversion. It energizes me to some extent, and it helps to get my mental juices flowing when people lead me to consider new ideas or different perspectives of my own ideas, which can be very exciting.
To some degree, other intelligent people are merely a utility for me (assuming I am intelligent myself). I use their own intelligence and ideas to help stimulate my mind to think outside of the boring boxes I find myself in when I've been inside my own head for too long without any intellectual contact with the outside world.
What Socionics type(s) do you think this suggests?
