    Default Hey-o. New member.

    Well, now that I'm here I guess I'll just jump right into things. I was first introduced to typology about 3 years ago when I was linked to the Keirsey temperament site where I took the test, read a couple type overviews/portraits, thought to myself "Neato!", and promptly left and forgot all about it. Fast forward to about 1 year ago and personality and typology come up in my Psychology class. We started off with The Big Five and when we discussed MBTI (however briefly) my teacher mentioned the Keirsey site. I revisited it and rekindled an interest in typology and after bouts of googling and wikapedia'ing I eventually found this place. I've lurked off and on for many months (forgive my creepiness) and in recent weeks have found myself spending more and more time here ergo I decided to register and maybe even participate a little!

    Anyway, as for me and my type? Well I'm awful at making concise conclusions so I'm reluctant to cast myself as any type. I will say this, however: I've taken many online tests and have scored as any of the IN's and indeed see aspects of each in my own self. At first I scored as INTJ but by far the most common result I had was INTP. Interestingly as I learn more I see myself as drifting more toward Fi (and thus INFP) as my last function ranking was something like: Fi>Ne=Ni>Ti>Si>Te>Se=Fe. As I learn more about individual functions I can't help but think I might be undermining my own efforts at typing myself through tests but at the same time I find it very important to have a thorough understanding of the theory and typology before calling such a judgment accurate or not. It also doesn't help that I seem to inhabit many different modes of thought seemingly based on how I'm feeling, which can sometimes change often in a given day.

    Alrighty I think I'm done now. This didn't really come out the way I wanted it to (seems al messy now that it's here on the screen), but then again I suppose I didn't really want it to come out in any particular manner as I certainly didn't plan what I was going to say, rather I remembered I thought of this at one point or another and decided I'd throw it out there.

    I'm kind of laughing at the fact that you started with "What up.." and then immediately launched into this persona with a thick-as-molasses drawl. I didn't even really notice till I started to read your post for a second time.

    But yeeeaaahhhh.... here ya are. *tosses damp towel*

    Oh, haha! I think I just "got" your username. That little spam detecting question during the registration asked me what color the sky was and my first instinct was to say that it was black at the moment and had been gray for the last few days due to weather. Needless to say I had to repeat that part, lol.

    And thanks to all for the welcomes and whatnot! I think this board seems to have a nice diversity not only in members but in it's breadth of discussion. Excellent.
