I just found out what the hell kind the name of my particular breed of strange creature is. This is like the holy grail of personality descriptions, and all I've read is the summary--i haven't even begun reading the summaries of the subtypes and what the different functions in the different positions mean.
You ever see two boxers or pitt bulls meet for the first time at a dog park? And at first they're all stiff and rigid and in some kind of frighteningly awkward confused pose and then one of them loosens its posture the tiniest bit, fur standing and eyes wild, then lets out a funny warble and the two of them play bow and then erupt in some elaborate, dramatic, sloppy frenzy?
(Non-IEE's [and potentially the IEE's, too, if i have made an error and inaccurately attributed my brand of insanity to the lot of you], you can now take this time to look on and roll your eyes, knowing that even though there's a bunch of noise, leaps, and fur flying, that it's better to let us get this out on each other right now, because we're gonna sleep the whole evening through if you do, and if you don't, you are gonna have to walk us for an hour of frustrating smelling, examining, licking, jumping, and barking punctuated by the ever-present, very serious business of being dedicated to intermittently pondering what qualities make the most appropriate pooping location (wait, i swear, i think I've really found the right place this time, right by this tree and those...squirrels!!).
Sorry you guys. I've worn myself out. Whew. Where'd all that come from, anyway, and what the hell does this absolutely 100% accurate dog communication style say on a meta level about the function of philosophical debates for each personality type?
All's I know is...keep me the hell away from the collies. Of socionics. Wait, i wonder which type is a collie? I bet all the types could be linked to a dog breed. The genetic slipperiness of dog DNA has led to a greater number of dog breeds than there are numbers
