Thread: introduction

  1. #1

    Smile introduction

    Hello! I'm excited to be here and learn (more) about personality theory. I discovered Myers Briggs in January when I took this really bad test "based off carl jungs work" and it typed me as INFP and at first i was all "heck yeah thats me" (i read the personality description (the one that shows up first when you type a type into google) and some of it was kind of me but most of it was ???), then someone typed me as INTJ and once again i was all "i can see myself in that" -- looking back at my behavior in those months, I realized I was changing my personality to fit the type descriptions (this was before i learned about cognitive functions). I did some research and apparently you kind of absorb others personalities when you have poor self-identity. Which i guess i have I don't know. Yeah thats my back story, anyways, now i'm supposedly an ENTP (this is after I learned about the functions). okay i'll explain more when I go ask for help in determining my type.

    nice to meet you all online

    ok thats it bye

    It's kind of irritating, isn't it? Not knowing your type because you don't really know yourself. Thanks by the way, you too.

    A turtle that's a wizard?

    A wizard that's a turtle?!

    A most enthusiastic welcome to you!
    You hem me in -- behind and before;
    you have laid your hand upon me.
    Such knowledge is too wonderful for me,
    too lofty for me to attain.

    See the Turtle of Enormous Girth!
    On his shell he holds the Earth
    His thought is slow, but always kind,
    He holds us all within his mind

    On his back all vows are made,
    He sees the truth but mayn’t aid
    He loves the land and loves the sea,
    And even loves a child like me

    Yes, it is interesting you absorb others' personalities, as I am suggestible. And so when I read about a personality, a neurosis, or a psychosis, for a short while I become that personality, or neurotic, or psychotic.

    This does present a minor problem in sorting out who I am. But fortunately I am suggestible for all sorts of things, not only books, but also movies, theories, fashions, and other people.

    And being suggestible to so many things, I become a slave to none.

    Welcome to Typology Central.

    Yes, me too! I used to read up on mental illnesses but ended up "absorbing" those too, which was awful. So i stopped. Idk, now I have no idea if what i'm experiencing is actually me or just who i am making myself (consciously or not).

    Thanks, glad to be here.
