Hi, I'm paradigm-shift. Some of you may know me on the socionics forum as warrior-librarian or the on the enneagram forum as outlier.
Just thought I'd let you know I'm here.
Some of the personality typing labels I've collected for myself:
Enneagram: 5w6 so/sp (2w1 and 9w1 trifixes)
Socionics: LII/INTj, intuitive subtype
Big Five: RxaoI (High introversion, average neuroticism, medium-high aggreableness, medium-high conscientiousness, high inquisitiveness)
Alignment: Neutral good
Oldham: Solitary, Conscientious, Vigilant, Sensitive
Holland Code: ISA (Investigative primary, social secondary, artistic tertiary)
Astrological Sign: Aquarius (I don't believe in astrology but some people want to know those things)
What's confusing is the MBTI part. I know I have strong introversion and intuition. But the last two letters swing back and forth. I identify alot with the INTP type and from a functional standpoint, I identify alot with TiNe but I seem to have alot more judging and feeling than the typical INTP. On online MBTI tests, I seem to cycle between INFJ/INTJ/INTP/INFP.
I posed this question on another forum and most seemed to think I was an INTP in spite of things that seem contradictory. But that was on an enneagram forum and I want to get perspective from a more MBTI oriented forum. So in another post, I'll explain some of the confusion I've been having in more detail.
I'm also pretty confident I'm a socionics INTj, which is supposedly similar to a Myers-Briggs INTP. Yet I know of people who have socionics and MBTI types that are not all that related. Socionics and MBTI do describe the information elements and the dichotomies somewhat differently.
Its been said that on the Big Five, conscientiousness correlates with J and agreeables with F. I typically score medium-high on those two traits, which I think would be more common with MBTI feelers and judgers.
When registering for this forum, I laughed when I saw the question "What color is the sky?" I know these forums typically attract alot of intuitive types who question common sense replies. I know the common sense reply is blue, which I gave but I kept thinking of all these alternative answers that would have been acceptable. Why not white? The clouds in the sky look white. If the sky is overcast, sometimes it looks more gray. And what about all those shades of purple, orange, and pink at sunrise/sunset? Or in the middle of the night when the sky is pitch black? And the sky isn't just one shade of blue either. And so on.
