What do they mean?
Last time I took the Humanmetrics, um, "instrument", I came out
I N T J
100 75 88 33
33% J surprised me, and I don't know what it means. It implies 77% P?
One hundred percent Introvert I can understand. It's really me. I live a life of humble seclusion. I definitely have "people time" time limits. I can often actually feel the saturation point. It doesn't come gradually, it just happens and in a moment the corner is turned. It frequently happens well before I want it to. Because I do know I need some people time, and I get antsy if I haven't left the house at least once a day.
That antsy feeling of being inside too much, I think that's a Ni-Te nexus thing. I need to feed the Ni and it needs to be fed by something that's "out there", outside the house. I can feed it with my internet connection, or sometimes with a movie or a book, but as I get older, I think I need more of what's really out there, outside in the environment I live in.
But that J...
I know I'm not INTP. Some of my most uncomfortable years were the lost academic years, the ones that I can look back and say I was attempt to pass as INTP. But INTP isn't me. To be blunt, I'm pretty sure I don't like Ti. Detailed investigation gets tiresome fast. Investigation per se is great. Love it. Running down details is boring. I LOVE leaping to conclusions and suddenly deciding I'm right. And I LOVE noodling around with Ni. LOVE playing games with reality. My sense of humour is based fairly solidly on generating realistic absurdities. Happens a lot that when I see something unexpected, something that outrageously changes a routine or a convention, I laugh.
And I feel great when I make (and perform) a plan to leave the house and perform some feat of actual functioning, like going shopping or riding my bike to a place I've never been. That, I think, is Se getting its kicks. Recently I've taken to actual walking--good, solid, striding walks for an hour or two. Those times I can't really tell if I'm walking with Te eyes or Se eyes. (Or if that's the wrong way to say it.) I think it's Se eyes. Scanning for physical stuff. I LOVE seeing built landscapes, and looking over buildings, seeing shapes, textures, constructions, oddments like balconys and door ways and shadow.
I scan people. I know I do. I can sort of tell the difference between Te scanning and Ne scanning. I'd love to find a cognitive processes test to find out what I really do use most, but I usually think I use Te eyes most of the time. That's kinda why I'm surprised by that low J.
That J... I do live a life of hesitation, in many ways. I often can't make instant decisions, and positively need to retreat into the Ni to wait for an answer. And my house routinely looks like crap. And bigger life decisions, like what to do next, I often leave hanging for a lo-o-ng time, hoping never to answer them. Sort of believing that an answer will come in the moment of something starting to happen.
I know there's others with different percentages. What do they mean to you?
