It'd take me a long time to go back over the posts to exemplar everything, however in general I find that the things you support and how you support it to be more S than N. naturally, I'm not actually for typing online - it was more that my impression through reading all your posts is that you are very likely to be a S, except that you would be generally different, as above.What exactly do you mean "integration of my world with beliefs?" I don't understand. Could you elaborate?
Good points, actually. I'll think on them.It's just that I think if you were an S, you would have been 'tuned in' to the reality all along. I believe it's reasonable to think that you're beginning to see yourself as S because you're starting to develop it now, and you're beginning to wake up to what effect your previous neglect of your Sensing side (maybe your Feeling side as well) might have had on others. When I was reading your blog, I noticed also that a few of the things you related to Sensing actually seemed related to Feeling as well (The impact of caring about a person's situation is Feeling, not Sensing. Caring at all about someone you've never seen face-to face hints strongly at N.) Perhaps your perception changed because you're developing those functions?
However, just to clear up the "impact" comment about Sahara's post - I have always had moderate empathy, so that wasn't something new. If you go back over my 2000+ posts, the vast majority of them are towards helping people, although around here it has taken on a very different tone. In any case, I've always been like that.
The impact factor only came in when it was acknowledged, same as the compliment posts... namely those that said it has an influence on them. The actual reaction towards helping only started with influence - impact on the other person.
Honestly, I don't think there is anything you could say that I'd consider mean. I don't think there is a question I won't answer - time being the main reason I don't do thousand word posts all the time. I don't like answering if I won't have time to do research, but that's been the case lately. I don't like the back and forth without the time to support what I say.Look, I'm not trying to be mean, I'm just pointing out an alternative perspective here.
If you are really curious, it's based upon taking everyone I know that has been typed, then grouping them together and looking at the common factors. Ns just don't ground themselves well - INTJs to ENFPs. There is a large degree of what that amounts to, but taking the same positions (at work) with the two groups separated, that's the common link... the P/J thing too plays a part in 'grounded', but it has more to do with planning and implementation.How do you know it's N's that have arrogance against grounded knowledge? Isn't it usually SJ type people who want to do things the same way they've always done them, and disregard new data or trends so they can cling to traditions that might hurt people?
The problem I have is that we stereotype SJs from theory, not from practise. We take a mixture of traits and generalise them... but then we expect everyone to fit in them. It's one thing to say that 90% of SJs would rather go with some major tradition and hurt someone than otherwise... but it's another thing to generalise it without the grounding to see if that is actually correct.
Reality -> Theory -> Validation. When validation fails, we go back to theory. With no validation, the theory self-improves itself without the bounds of reality.
Yup...? I'm not sure how the two major factors here suggest INTP, however... 1) The moral reasons and 2) The impact on my budget.(Remember your concerns about the diamond ring?)
I was willing to accept it if someone could justify it... but no one could justify the diamond on grounds I would accept.
Based upon? Also, that was my normal mode of operation for most of my life - it changed in my childhood when I was bullied and driven to books and computers.Also, don't typical SP's have to learn everything by first hand experience, rather than via books?
In this we differ. even when I was working on the computer, I was trying to create. 3d modelling to programming, I've done it all. I was not, however, really into it - it was me trying to escape.The main reason I say this is because I would rather read about something than do it or see it.
Then FPS came out, then RTS... it was over after that (Also, to note, I have an SP family and SP friends, all of which are all across the spectrum on reading and doing... likewise at work. Also note that Ss dominate the field of programming and the like. It's too easy to find side-tracks to justify these errant behaviours, such as "of course programmers are Ss because (x), but in general, Ss don't like computers!".
That's actually not abnormal for SJs, FWIW. I don't know exactly where the population lies, but language is a very structured thing. It's my weak point, if you talk about aptitudes, however.I like to study language, and learn new words.
Not at all. I wish I could write everything that made me think it over, but that'd take hours, if not days. After the first joke about it, I spent a whole lot of time going over my childhood, looking at the results at work, looking for other demographic information on ISTPs/INTPs and how ISTPs perform in the corporate world.I'll stop questioning your type if it makes you uncomfortable, I'm just trying to understand your reasoning. I'm interested.
It quickly turned from a joke into something I had to take seriously. Even after stepping away and trying to do it in reverse, it just didn't stick as well.
The pleasure is all mine... although deep inside, I hope that most people don't pre-judge based upon the N/S divide - or any divide... but I fear that is not the case.Seriously, though, whether you're an N or S, you're still an interesting person, and I'm glad to have made your acquaintance.
