Amgs, you must be ENTP.Well, to be completely accurate, it's like this.
I just fully delve into ideas that I'm not sure about. They can be minor (like buying something) or major (like constructs in threads here). I allow myself full reign to explore them, formulate hypotheses, put them on and wear them, ask others about them, etc. If they make it through and 'pass' muster in various forms and fields and time, then they start becoming stuck and become part of my values and belief systems, I guess.
But anywhere along that path, incoming information can affect my notion. It's a rather directly proportionate relationship, meaning that they more I believe it, the more information I will need to make me abandon it, and the less I believe it or have carried it with me, the less--and more quickly--I can abandon it, see. So it really makes sense if you look at it like this. At least to me.
But it is very disconcerting, or can be, to those around me. I know it used to irk my ex to no end. I don't know why I do this. I think it's in part because I start inside, then take bits of the world outside and bring them in and see if they all correlate. It sounds fucked. And it may be. Perhaps as I travel along my path of individuation, I will learn how to do it the opposite way, making me more functional and efficient. And less irksome to others bearing witness to this lengthy and emotional (at times) process.
It all makes sense now.
