    i think leaving things to black and white leaves alot of room for interpretation across all types.

    I think it's absolutely adorable (though a little insulting) that you view us as people who just think of what ifs and would be situations. If my life were really like that, I would not be as accomplished as I am today... I don't spend my days in a cloud, theorizing. In fact, I could probably crush an SP on the dance floor, as well as on the tennis courts. We're not all so bad... Just sayin'.

    It is a genuine question. Excuse the excessive stereotyping, but do you picture what you might look like with a new hair style? Do you try and figure out if a party might be more fun than another set of plans using imagination?

    I'm genuinely curious about the thought process.

    no absolutely no sarcasm. If i do have / use imagination, then i discredit it and do not realize when i use it. I have a very strange relationship with creativity...

    to me, being an artist does not = creativity.

    I was brought up on doing still lifes and figure model drawing. I wasn't exactly drawing princesses and dinosaurs. I like things that exist. There is no room for imagination in photorealism.

Most often people don't truly see themselves and thus inadvertently lie about who they are. I've learned volumes from this place.
    For whatever reasons I find it hard to discuss type, when most cannot distinguish between the theories. People tend to discuss MB by alluding to temperament lingo (SP, NT...), discuss topics like J/P as though it truly means anything, attempt to convey theories with little knowledge of the basic principles, etc. I think there are other forums that that seem to have a greater appreciation for the principles of type. This is not a rant, but it's hard to discuss possible scenarios when so much energy is needed in rehashing over what should be basic. Again not a slam to the forum, but my observation and the same goes for INTPC and it's even more apparent at ENTP.ORG. Now here is a bit of irony that introverts purport to be non-socializers, however socialize on the forums? Maybe socializing is too loosely used and it should be noted that human contact is not as necessary.

    Ok, so you see yourself more as an artisan, rather than an artist. I can understand that. But why do you discredit your imagination?

    (and princesses do exist! there are quite a few remaining monarchies...)

    The introverted function is different than being an introvert.

    My intent on these forums is not to learn the lingo or have laymen teach me about Typology. I have books and courses for that.

    I was referring to the interaction of different types on this forum in order to do my own empirical research. I see a huge difference between xNTPs but also so many similarities. But compared to xNTJs, we might as well be foreign animals. But yet we are all still NTs. This open communication style has taught me so much and I have learned how to deal with certain people irl because of it.
