    That sounds INTP to me, but I'm not sure. The I and the T seem to stand out.

    Are you going to give the 'real' type for the first one? I'm curious. It does read as ISFP to me as well.

    Nah. There are people joining every day and someone might read it and have new input. I wouldn't want to bias that. This is more for people to get feedback on their own personality without the bias. That's why I'm not revealing anyone's identity or self-type. It's not a guessing game like Cenomite's thread.

    Analysis of person 2

    Turns out that being given a challenge of writing about yourself so others can type you is a difficult thing for me to do. I find it hard to put my thoughts into words sometimes and add to that the over analyzing of everything I write so as to not put bias in my words Non-dominant Ti, tertiary likely... INFJ possible due to the need to select "non-bias" words., I could tell you that I love and care about people and youíd say uh-ha, theyíre a feeler, or I could tell you that I have a hard time dealing with raw emotions and youíd claim T, well the truth is somewhere in the middle of both of those things. If I sound as though I contradict myself its because Iím not one or the other, Iím both just in different quantities. a balance individual often doesn't show strong difference between T vs F. Although the lack of distinction is more common for auxilary judgers i.e. IXXJ or EXXP

    About me; Jeff, did you format the list for the person or did the person actually created the list? (I couldn't see you using the list function really ) If so, that's very J.

    • Learning is its own reward, I have little interest in formal education, Iíd much rather embrace a passion immediately and educate myself to the point that I could have a conversation with an expert and hold my ground, there doesnít need to be a practice use, just personal enjoyment.

Very balance across I/E although I'll say a slight tendency towards I due to "behind the scene" involvement. Again, tactics points to the use of T (it doesn't necessarily mean you're a T)...

    You know me so well, nightie!

    I am pasting these in exactly as I get them. So any formatting, punctuation, spacing, etc. is done by the person, not by me.

    Thanks for your input!

    Okay, here's a follow-up message from "Person 2":

    ***********

    Thanks Nightning.

    Iím not one to use bullet points often, I specifically wrote it like that because I wanted to make it easy to read. Personally Iíd only skim over something like this at the best of times but if it wasn't easy to read, in that it was a block of text, there would be no chance I'd read it without good reason, I wanted it to be as easy as possible for people with a similar attention span to me to read.

    • Learning/researching new things is my favorite thing to do. Could be anything
    What I mean by that is when something is said to me or a new thought comes to surface and captures my interest I'll want to know the who, what, when, where, why's of it so I'll independently teach myself. As long as the subject of my interest changes regularly I have no problems motivating myself to learn, I want to, whereas things that I am supposed to do are often dragged out.

    • When I was a child and wasn't eating books or playing with animals I was outside climbing trees and fences, being active, riding bikes but all the while imaging things other than reality in my head. Need to clarify extent and type of daydreaming. Overall, couldn't say anything.
    In my head I'd be someone else, somewhere else, everything around me would be incorporated in this. My back yard could become the gardens of an 18th century castle or some such thing. I'd lose all sense of reality when playing.

    • I could count the amount of people Iíd consider real friends on one hand. possible red herring
    Not meant to be a red herring, I probably overreached with this point though, trying too hard not to influence the E v I.

    Interesting. I'll post at some point to see if that changes your guesses. Again, thanks.

    So I did.

    In order to write a stream of thought I have to go analogue or Iíll probably edit, plus itíll make it look more interesting (that is if others can read my 'writing'). Couldnít access a scanner so scrap that but so you know, it totally would have been interesting!

    Crap. My mind is blank. That seriously sucks.

    Okay.
    I think life is a journey of self discovery and an adventure, itís wasted if opportunities come along and are ignored because weíre too busy focusing on the last opportunity we didnít get.

    I think responsible spontaneity should be embraced by all.

    The only things I look back on and regret are things I didnít do and didnít say, holding yourself back when opportunity comes along out of fear of exposure, embarrassment or pride is failure to live.

    I think most people are basically good however they are also basically selfish to the point that their actions hurt others and as long as they are not 'put out' they donít care.

    Itís amazing how often my mind goes blank, itís like I get so deeply lost in thought that I canít even register what Iím thinking anymore. Odd.

    Anyway my mind is now totally engaged with the topic of breakfast cereals and helping me pick the crunchy flake bits out of the bran bits to snack on so I must stop writing.

    Fin.

    LOL! Blue, are you referring to me? Call it a hunch, but I think you are! (In which case, sorry to disappoint.)

    I think it's funny because as I was reading this person's self-description, I thought aspects of it reminded me of myself.

    My vote for person #1 = ISfP. The f I am determining by considering whole type, not necessarily individual dichotomies.

    A very late response...

    I wanna say that's Fi in action. Consideration for others in reference to self. Fe would probably just say "make it as easy for people to read as possible"

    What I mean by that is when something is said to me or a new thought comes to surface and captures my interest I'll want to know the who, what, when, where, why's of it so I'll independently teach myself. As long as the subject of my interest changes regularly I have no problems motivating myself to learn, I want to, whereas things that I am supposed to do are often dragged out.
    This again sounds P. Especially the part about changing subject of interest. NJs can often be bullheaded about mastering a particular thing before moving on.

    In my head I'd be someone else, somewhere else, everything around me would be incorporated in this. My back yard could become the gardens of an 18th century castle or some such thing. I'd lose all sense of reality when playing.
    Ummmm INFP any one? Kidding... Essentially that's what a stereotypical INFP is suppose to say.

    Not meant to be a red herring, I probably overreached with this point though, trying too hard not to influence the E v I.
    Red herring is probably the wrong word for this... what I meant is there's too many factors influencing why you have a small number of friends. Although your comment about "trying too hard not to influence the E v I" suggests you think you might be closer to E than I...

    Overall, I think it's safe to establish you as an N rather than a S.

    Anyway my mind is now totally engaged with the topic of breakfast cereals and helping me pick the crunchy flake bits out of the bran bits to snack on so I must stop writing.
    Out of curiosity... what sort of cereal do you like? It seems a bit strange to me that somebody will snack on bran cereal... because it tastes... well bland.

    P.S. Jeffster - I'm pondering the following:

    The whole concept of this thread is to allow forum members the opportunity to be type analyzed without any existing bias. Yet, as in the case of Bluemonday, perhaps some bias is still being incorporated into the typing of the new individual.

    Although I'm not 100% certain Blue thinks that Person #1 is me, it doesn't really matter, because she does think she recognizes this person. It does seem likely that in this case the person is ISFP, so no harm done except for mistaken identity (sorry Person #1 - I wouldn't want to be confused for the ever-so-indecisive beyondaurora!).

    But I do think it is important that everyone participating in this not succumb to their suspicions of which forum member the person might or might not be because not only may that cloud your own analysis, it may also affect the opinions of those participants coming after you.

    Just my two cents.

    Good point. That's why I didn't set this up as a guessing game, though I understand why people are tempted to try to figure them out. Heck, I probly would be too if I wasn't the one posting the messages.

    Try this one folks!:



    Sometimes I feel like I am trapped in my own mind. Like everything around me is some sort of illusion and I'm not really here. Sometimes it almost seems as if everything around me dims like it's flickering and maybe it's all held up by my willpower or my imagination. I experience deja vu A LOT. So often I will listen to people around me and even myself and the other noises and sights and it feels like it's all happened before, several times, like we're in some sort of repeat program or we're simply pawns for God's amusement or something.

    I always feel like I'm in the minority on everything. When I listen to people debate politics, I can't usually agree with either side, because it always seems like they are missing something. I don't accept the premises that they debate on because they always seem to be based on false assumptions.

    My favorite movies are comedies. I hate dark and disturbing movies or ones where everybody's yelling at or insulting each other. I have seen so much of that kind of stuff in real life, why do I want to watch it in a movie? Entertainment is supposed to be an escape, where you can forget about all the shit that's stopping up the pipes of the world and feel good without guilt or responsibility.

    It's kind of weird I'm even doing this, because I actually find myself pretty sick of the whole typing thing. I read the threads in the "What's my type?" forum and read the responses where people are all like "you're totally INxx" and somebody else "no, definitely xxTJ or enfj" or maybe i/e/n/t/ ugh shut up! It's all so arbitrary! After awhile it seems to just be something we made up to try to distract ourselves from all the pain. And the lack of an explanation for our pain and why we're all here makes me sometimes not be able to sleep at night. Sometimes I get to sleep but have nightmares. Maybe the nightmare world is the real reality, and this world is the dream? I often have to remind myself that I'm really here. It feels like I'm so often outside myself, observing myself like I'm out of body, and I'm playing a role. Who/where/what/when is the real me? Why am I here and what is my purpose? Every time I think I have decided, something makes me doubt. I hear people declare things with such confidence and I envy it so much. I get mad at them for having clear purposes and confident views and high self-esteem but it's not because I truly hate them. It might be that I actually hate myself. Or I don't understand myself enough to love myself anyway.

    Ugh. I can read back over this myself and think "everybody reading this is going to say 'soooo INFP'" but the thing is, that tomorrow or next week I could write something from my heart the same way and it would sound totally different. I could talk about how I think there's so much immorality and hedonism and lack of respect and lack of upholding worthy traditions, and people might say "sooo ISFJ." And then another day I could rant about how everybody tries to write and talk in text message speak and everyone has these short attention spans and they don't read books about science and history and don't take the opportunities to fill their head with real knowledge instead of all this fluff and celebrity crap and internet junk, and then people might say "you must be NT or maybe STJ or whatever." I don't want to be all conflicted all the time, i want to be one of those types that just does stuff without analyzing it or questioning how it lines up with some sort of standard for society or a moral code or whatever.

    Blech. Now I feel like by ranting about that I sort of pre-insulted anyone who responds to this and tries to help me. I guess I should stop writing now. I really do want feedback, I guess I'm just fearful of it at the same time.
