    point of reference isn't the same, I relate to some ideas more than others though still feels out of place. Like a fish out of space wanting to land into water. In saying can I identity with posters of similar preferences, I want to and maybe I can given time yet I'm an individual first so naturally being who I am will be unlike any other. Will ponder some, for now its inconclusive.

    I can't think of anyone to liken you to, so no wonder.

    There are many people whose posts I enjoy very much but I don't conflate this with identifying with them or liking them, especially as I enjoy many because of their difference. That sort of thinking is odd.

    Why is that odd, its how I see it too. The varied input and variables that make up personality dimensions are such that I want to learn so as to find mediums and get along with most all people.

    Yet at the same time its kind of depressing too because I'd like to identify with experiences and ideas to gain a sense of equanimity, balanced sense of self.

    What's odd is the interpretation of "identify" as "enjoy." I am very interested in understanding what makes people tick, though getting along with them or even engaging them is not a priority. But I make a distinction between understanding the dimensions of personality and identifying with the dimensions I find. Some I identify with and do not enjoy. Some others I don't identify with but enjoy.

    ^This thread doesn't merit that much thoughtful consideration. But +1.

    And don't go thinking that means I identify with you!

    To relate as sense of affirmation that yeah, the ideas have a quality that I can resonate with enough to at least know I'm speaking with the right chords, like residual resonance, that get another to relate in some way. That I'm doing something right that shows an echo, a reflection across the way in which ideas are transmitted without being left out. to know that when in balance there is some semblance of identification with the thought processes that is applicable and then demonstrated as applicable to the self sort of.

    Various posters that match up with some facet of my personality:

    Economica
    Night
    Cafe ( I miss her)
    Meta

    I relate the most to Synapse.

    not sure i know any isfj guys.
    I think this is true, ISFJs like to cling to one or two people and make like a little bubble but I'm starting to see how unhealthy that can be, especially if that one person you cling to leaves you. If that happens then you have no one and then you feel so alone. Not to mention that people like to be cared about and they want to know that they matter to you as much as phil does. (lawl@ me using the name phil)

    Jennifer!
    I can't say I relate to any specific types here, though. Especially my own, which is kind of weird.

    Interesting and thank you. I like the distinction between precise and concise. I do value concision over precision. And I value circumcision more than either.

    Pfft.

    Well, DARN.
    INFJ's do seem to be the most popular. Honest appreciation plus non-pushiness. ENFJ's often can come off as a little more judgmental and quick to make up their mind about people. And also quick to be hurt.

    If INFJ's are truly genuine in their appreciation of others then I guess genuineness wins when it comes to being well-liked.

    i'm not sure how it's a compliment, but it is, and you all deserve it.
    I relate to you. I was just too lazy to do this thread. Also, you need to post more.

    Seriously, a lot of NT posts are basically, "Pff. If you understand or even acknowledge that emotions exist in anyone, ever, or that they actually mean something, then you must be a closet NF. And we all know how inferior NFs are to us, so yes, I meant that as an insult. Go cry now, you emoter!"

    but that guy has the same (sane) perspective that I do on the issue
    Thank you.
