    Really? I'm not aware of doing that. It seems to me that I experience life in terms of feelings in the moment that are based on what happens to me rather than internalizing it or making it unconscious or part of my identity.

    I don't think I make all my decisions based on reason, though.

    I'm curious to see which you'd be more like once you make some big changes in your life, live independently, and all that... it would seem to be a "truer" self. (It's like waiting for Christmas, wheee!)
    Well, I already know what I would be like at that point, I just can't be that way right now because I don't know how yet.

    I'd be fairly open, kind, concerned, and entertaining... if I could be who I feel I am. It's just that there's no satisfying outlet for any of those tendencies right now that will get me where I want to go. So I have to dismiss them until I'm in a position to show them.

    I didn't say "reason."
    I said "rational process."

    At least in your participation here (and based on what you've said about your life outside of here), you process everything (using whatever rules that you use) first, while living your life / being within or identifying with the experience seems an extraneous point at best.

    This is very different than what you might see an ESFP do, for example. Maybe more comparisons IRL to others would help you, since you'd have something to showcase what you aren't like.

    Well, yes... but that's a rational approach.

    Other sorts of people would tackle that problem differently. (For example, some aren't able to dismiss them, and so they'd be miserable staying in that situation... so all of their energy would be bent towards changing their situation. Your "dismiss, accept, and sit back and wait" approach is very much like Data's approach.)

To trace the remote in the immediate; the eternal in the ephemeral; the past in the present; the infinite in the finite; these are to me the springs of delight and beauty.” ~ H.P. Lovecraft

    Correct. Being within the experience and identifying with it seems childish.

    Ugh. I know what I'm not like. All I know about the way people who aren't like me act, is that they all seem creepy and untrustworthy.


    Well, yes... but that's a rational approach.

    Well, I guess I just find it difficult to muster up the energy to do something that isn't rational, because things that aren't rational have a higher chance of failure and are usually riskier than things that are.

    ...

    Ah, sorry, I'm derailing. Let's see... I guess if I wasn't an android, I'd be either human or betazoid.

    I'm probably Romulan...

    I accept no responsibility, what so ever, for the fact that I exist; I do, however, accept full responsibility for what I do while I exist.

    been repeatedly compared to vulcan characters that could be typed as INTP or ISTJ. one friend keeps comparing me to tuvok, another to spock. haven't had t'pol yet, but this is probably because none of the people i know have watched ST enterprise.
