    I've read that MBTI ISTP translates with Socionics ISTX. I've read both descriptions and find that I don't identify with Socionics ISTJ at all, so I'm pretty sure I'm ISTP in both. Then again it could be me who is confused.

    I see so many differences in me and you and I am trying to figure it out. Look at responses that we both make to happy puppy. You give detail about what to do, I explain what I see. This is a disconnect between apparent behaviour and actual cause and effect in regards to our functions. I am still trying to figure this out and you sparked my interest because we are the same outside yet different inside and different in how we deal with people.

    edit: this may need a seperate thread because it wil derail this thread big time.

    SLIs very much enjoy personal conversations where people talk about their feelings and personal experience in an atmosphere of trust and intimacy. However, they tend to willingly follow others' initiative or create external conditions where emotional intimacy is likely to occur rather than actually initiating the intimacy themselves. SLIs are easy people to talk to about one's personal sentiments about life, people, and relationships, since they listen closely and with genuine interest as long as the person they are hearing out is not worked up or agitated.

    SLIs appreciate such qualities as concern, tact, and openness about one's feelings. These are the kinds of people they are drawn to for friendship. They are usually very polite and loyal; particularly to close family members and the very few people they count as friends. They expect the same returned, but often suffer quiet disappointment.
    I do think sometimes it's the introverted side that keeps us in key... We're talking very different languages on very different levels - but it works for both of us in a weird way - It's like hydrogen and oxygen - separate - highly flamable - together though they become water.... It just makes sense....

    That's strange because I see many similarities between us. Some of your responses seem like you took the words right out of my mouth. Then other times when our opinions are substantially different, it mostly seems like we're simply looking at the situation from a different perspective.

    Though I am open and quite curious in figuring out why we look at some things from a different perspective. If you have an idea of how to go about that feel free

    You hit it on the head. Perception is the key and is what Ne/Ni/Se/Si is all about. You seem like a very healthy ISTJ, or you seem like you match SiTeFiNe functions. Te is talking through things with others to figure stuff out. Se is noticing differences, while Ne is noticing similarities. My Se drives me to Ti and drives me to question the similarities that I see.

    When I first met the ISTP I know, he seemed intelligent but wasn't all that talkative. Later, when I started e-mailing him with questions about the class I took from him, he would sometimes give me long answers to my questions that were extremely intelligent. When he interacts with people in person, you see mostly his Se- he's constantly observing what people are doing, and not saying that much. When he writes, though, he's using Ti, so he displays more depth. It's a shame that most people don't get to see that.

    This was an art class that was taught with some lecture but mostly by demonstration.

    My emotions are metabolized incredibly easy. Anger is my one unconquerable emotion, and I'm pretty sure that's easy enough to see when expressed.


    Talking about emotions is like analyzing poetry, and then writing an essay about it. I'd prefer to either punch someone in the face, cry, or sex it up all night.

That's what "pull your head out of your arse" means

    I rarely feel "complicated" about my feelings, but I do realize and appreciate that there are other people who need to put more time and energy into examining their feelings before they pass, so I am accommodating if you feel the need to share with me to get them off your mind. In fact, I cherish moments like those because it really means the other person trusts you.

    To me, most of my feelings are like the clouds floating in the sky. If I don't pay any attention to them, they pass and I usually don't even realize they were there in the first place. If I look up into the sky and and see all these differently-shaped clouds, I might pull one down to give it a closer look. But no sooner than I have it in my hands trying to see what substance is there, it starts to fall apart on me and float away out of my hands before I can make sense of it to see if it really means anything. Then it's gone. I figure if it disappeared so quickly it must not have been very important.

    Most days my skies are mostly sunny, maybe partly cloudy. But some days the clouds span the entire sky, creating a darkness on my world down below. I've learned that those are the only clouds worth trying to examine, I think maybe I can figure out what is causing the storm and make it go away.
    This is such a great description. It's too bad you're long gone, @phoenity.
