    I idenitfy with Laintpe a lot so far, just because we have an almost scary amount of things in common. I also identify with Risen... and perhaps a few others. I'll update with more people I identify with as I get to know them

    How many Kiwis and Australians are there here? So all you know, I'm a kiwi living in Oz.
    Um, sorry for hijacking the thread, carry on.

    Lots. Start a thread Kiwis and Aussies and they'll come out of the woodwork. I'm a Kiwi in Japan.

    digest is cool. One just got to appreciate the occasional concise and snarky comment.

    And that ties into something else I was thinking about. There are a few whose insight I value, eg toonia and cafe. But I have to think hard about what they write and translate it into my own internal language. I don't quite get the internal process that they use and there isn't that ease of understanding that I have with a handful of posters.
    Exactly, liking is a different matter entirely. And it's not even about having a shared identity in terms of background or experience. I don't know most well enough to judge that. I also don't think I am really *like* anyone else here. It's more about finding that they often have a pov, or approach, values, interests, sense of humour, or energy, which is similar to my own, or which I can at least make sense of. Where there are fewer misunderstandings/tensions/explanations required. "Internal language" is a good metaphor.

    I didn't really see the point of this thread, but it's interesting how often ppl have chosen others of the same or almost the same type. Especially when you consider that there are so many factors which contribute to identity.

    I've got no idea if the people on my list would feel at all like me if I met them IRL. Yeah, maybe it is a similar 'internal language' thing, understanding why they said what they said and minimal misunderstandings. I find it quite restful to read posts by people that are on my wavelength, including when they've typed my thoughts in a similar language to what I would have used (although the latter can occasionally be disconcerting).

    I find it interesting to see who thinks who is similar, whether it's reciprocated or not and in terms of set theory, the union and intersection of the various lists. I started a similar thread about this at the other place because I was curious.

    The same type thing could be because the same internal processes are at work, and the similarities are when the input data (gah, I hate words!) means you get similar outputs. /dreadful computer analogy

    That said, I listed two who weren't my type - an INFJ and an INFP. I have a longish list of INTPs on my wavelength but most are from INTPc.

    Being "like" someone ( being similar to them in some way ) might be a reason to "like" them, or might not be. Finding similar humor, approaches, interests etc. are reasons why I may or may not ( if other qualities outweigh those ) choose to "like" someone. It seems to me that there is some overlap in the definitions of "identify" and "like".

    In my first post in this thread, I took "identify" to mean a more extreme form of "like" ( in its sense of similarity, versus sheer emotion ), verging on someone parsing information just like I do, or somehow "anticipating" what I would have said myself etc. As I indicated, I do not "identify" with anyone here very consistently, but I do see flashes here and there from different people that fit this occasionally.

    Since I've never listed "likes" before, however, I decided to take a partial stab at it here, since doing so is not as far "off topic" in my opinion as it seems to be with some people. I doubtless missed a lot of people that I'll slap myself in the head for forgetting, and that's my main "regret" about posting what I did. I'm sure that my mentioning mutuality might have confused my "on the fly" division of categories for some, too, but I wasn't trying to create the definitive list for all time, using some kind of complex methodology. It was, in some ways, just me letting certain people know about a receptivity on my part, since part of my reason for being here is to meet new friends.

    As far as the question of when or how psychological/intellectual similarities transform themselves into emotional attachments ( if they do so at all ) I'm not sure. Perhaps its different in each case, or there may be patterns that could be found by those who wish to study such things. It seems that it is probably outside the scope of the thread to examine the intricacies of such, but well inside the scope of the thread to merely state that one does "like" certain people, without insisting on a "fine point" being put on everything.
