    Not as well as I'd like but I feel I know myself much better than I did 5 years ago. Becoming familiar with yourself comes with time and experiences.

    As it is now, I'm not sure that I have a true "self," so much as merely being a mechanism that interprets, compares, and examines data from various input sources both internal and external in order to drive a psychological decision-making process I have no direct control over.

    Thus, I don't know myself, because I question the concept of a single "self" being valid in the first place.

    How interesting. This parallels some of my thoughts in reaction to reading the post, but I used it as a means to reach the conclusion of "yes". I may not be able to remember every experience or predict every decision I will make, but I have a clear sense of the process of being "me" as a person in the world. I have some sense of how I relate to the cause and effect of the external world and how my intentions play into it. I also consider where my intentions come from. I question the validity of the concept of "self".

    Simply, I know the process of self better than the product of self if that makes sense.

    Well, the obvious seemed to has elluded you completely then.

    As this topic was clearly made in jest that knowing oneself is an entirely subjective view. And the most objective conclusion is that we each know ourselves as much as the next person. But we each value and view that knowledge differently. Hence the poll choices.

    If anyone is a disgrace to INTP's it's you here.

    Just a sidenote here. But assaulting someones spelling or grammar is usually a defense mechanism to avoid a debate you have no footing in.

    I do wish I can, but to be honest it's actually impossible for anyone to know themselves completely.

    Ni sense 'wants' to see me-self as being as unknowable as the entire universe, which is scary. But that's probably due to my interest in cosmology
    “To explain all nature is too difficult a task for any one man or even for any one age. 'Tis much better to do a little with certainty, & leave the rest for others that come after you, than to explain all things by conjecture without making sure of any thing.”—Statement from unpublished notes for the Preface to the Opticks (1704) by Newton.

    What do you think about me? And for the darker side, here.
