    I'm the kind of person who dives to the bottom of the ocean analyzes from the submerged part of the iceberg, up. But I have realized that most people are very uncomfortable with anything other than the tip. It's best when I meet people for the first time, that I talk about superficial topics before getting into anything too heavy. I easily get frustrated when I need to go deep and others don't. Actually most times, I keep things to myself. I'd much prefer to explore through some creative means on my own, than with another person.

    A deep conversation would be about ideas and feelings and attempts at understanding the human heart.
    I agree. I like to talk about ideas, concepts, theories, meaning, and feelings, but most people seem to socialize by gossiping.

    Strangely though I never got in on a test...
    That comes as no shock to me. The test is frankly not that good, and I've come to realize this more and more as I see friends take it. I only tested as an ENTP for a short period of time when I first became interested in the theory.

    If we don't have your type labelled by your name, I really don't care to read your posts. About a quarter to a third of the information I get from from these forums is what people post. The rest comes from contemplating why someone of the type would post that way, so thank you for making a decision and posting it, even though if it is not right, then two thirds to three quarters of the information I read from your posts will be completely fallible!

    Subjective.

    I think I am extremely shallow. I am superficial, I care about how I look externally. If I am feeling extremely insecure I can be judgmental based on superficial looks. :sad:

    I really don't like this about myself.

    I think everyone is self-conscious about their appearance but to a different extent. Everyone judges on outward appearances and obviously we are aware of that because if people didn't we wouldn't care in the first place:
    - the way they are dressed
    - their body
    - their face
    - etc..
    It's not always the same criteria though. I categorize as "outward appearance" anything that is not related to "you as a person".
    Some people would say :
    "you're so shallow you only care about the way my body looks!"
    yet she'd only care about what's in his bank account...
    Sometimes I feel like I'm "on Mercury"-

    True. But in reality, actual "deep" thoughts and feelings are pretty private, and I generally keep them to myself. Words are shallow. You don't need to have a conversation about understanding the human heart to achieve depth.. Nonverbal communication beats it all
