    Default Anonymous Typings

    Okay, so I was discussing with a certain forum member about when established members here ask people about their personality type, and how if someone has had a certain type in their profile or stuck to certain types of discussions, it might be hard for people to be objective about the subject, because there might be a natural bias to not consider certain types outside of what that person has indicated are possibilities.

    Wow, that was a really convoluted run-on sentence. But anyway, the idea behind this thread is that you come up with some basic elements about your personality that don't reveal your specific identity, maybe even things that you wouldn't ordinarily make public under your name, then you PM it to me or anyone else you trust to post it for you, and we can let the forum collective look at the info alone, rather than viewing it through the filter of that person's already established forum personality.

    Hopefully that made sense. And I will start off by posting the one given to me by a certain forum member. Once again, the idea is to discuss and comment on the type possibilities, not try to guess who the member is. Obviously, I can't stop you from speculating, but endless "so, is it ZombieMoron? Is it OMGcuteNF2006?" posts will be annoying.

    So here we go...

    "I tend to get really interested in a particular subject or activity and pursue it vigorously for a certain length of time. But after a certain period I feel very disillusioned about it. Not just that I am no longer interested in it, but that I have wasted so much time on it. It's as if I think what I am interested in now should have manifested itself earlier to save me the wasted effort."

    "Sometimes long periods go by when I'm not really sure what I'm even interested in. I don't feel depressed, really, just uninspired. My daily routine seems to just go by without much enjoyment of anything in particular. Then, like a bolt of lightning, I will be struck with a new idea or a new twist on an old idea and I will want to put all of my energy into whatever it is. Normal obligations tend to get thrown by the wayside when this happens and the cycle starts to repeat itself."

    "I always have trouble answering those questions used to determine E/I on type tests. It seems as if they are divided into two separate things. On the one hand, they ask questions like "Do you prefer to be around people or solitude?" or "Are you expressive with a lot of facial and hand movement or are you more calm and reserved?" All of those type of questions, I will answer what gets counted for "E." I love people, I can be very talkative around people that I have any kind of relationship established with, and I tend to use plenty of hand gestures and facial expressions when I talk in those situations." So if a test has mostly questions like that for that category, I show up as an E. BUT if the questions are about how comfortable are you in large groups of strangers, whether you feel comfortable speaking in front of crowds, whether you are the one at the party moving around introducing yourself and meeting new people, etc. All of those types of questions, I answer on the I side. So it really is hard to tell what that part of the MBTI is really asking I guess."

    "I daydream a lot, but my daydreams don't tend to be fantasy scenarios, like I'm whisked away on a horse by a handsome prince to some castle or something. They tend to be more about things I'd rather be doing, either right now or in the near future. Sometimes I daydream ideas for movie or television scripts or future sporting events. I always feel like I have way too much stuff floating around in my head, and no outlet for most of it. It's another area that fuels my feeling that I waste so much time. It really seems like life is this race we keep having to run instead of being able to slow down and focus on enjoying our day. The times I feel the best are when I feel like I have no cares in the world and don't have to watch the clock or worry about real-life obligations. Spending time with cool people and sharing things and experiences with them is enough for me. Until I get my next amazing grand idea! LOL!"


    So, there's some stuff to get you started. I can refer questions back to the person if necessary, but it might get complicated if there's too much of that. Try to go more off what's already there if you can.

    Hopefully after we've had some dialogue on this one, someone will have sent me another one to post, or someone else will post one so we can keep this topic going. I will leave it up to the individual if he/she wants to reveal their identity once discussion on each person seems to be through. I won't be revealing it, though, so don't bother asking me.

    Interesting idea for a thread.

    I think she's ISFP, and I'm sure I said so when she first joined. She thinks she's an NF.

    I'm usually pretty reluctant to say what I think as far as someone else's type may or may not be based solely on forum posts, but as this is both anonymous and an open request to do so, I'll throw in my two cents .

    My best guess is IsxP for this person (I can't really tell on the F/T). Actually, if I didn't know that you'd gotten this from someone else, I'd have thought it was something you were saying about yourself, Jeff .

    I: The quote about "life of the party" vs. "I like people" paragraph makes me think that this person likes people, but is more comfortable in small groups. On a related topic, I think this has more to do with bad questions on some tests...

    s: The daydreaming about more realistic topics, what he/she'd rather be doing, etc. as opposed to more abstract fantasy stuff.

    x: (can't tell - could be either f or t)

    P: The intellectual wandering and more casual approach to obligations while enthralled with something makes me say P.

    Hmm... now I'm not so sure I have anywhere near enough information to make any reliable determination. But I'll leave this up anyway just to add to the conversation.

    Could be. I can relate to almost all that was said.

    Great idea for a thread.

    Sounds like an ISFP.

    I would also go with ISFP.

    I and F because I can completely relate to the loving people but not wanting to be in great groups bit, I think that is quite typical for introverted feelers.

    P because the person sounds like someone who loves to start things but isn't that interested in completion.

    S because the person seems more interested in the here and now then in the unseen.

    The last sentence:

    "Spending time with cool people and sharing things and experiences with them is enough for me. Until I get my next amazing grand idea! LOL!"

    feels very ISFP though.
    I tested as ENFP six times yesterday in that 20pc typing thread. I was reading up on the two types. They both seem pretty similar. The most glaring difference was that the ISFP was talking about using their own skills to create for others. While the ENFP was talking about facilitating creativity more. The direction of and focus of the creativity is different.

    I think the above sounds more ISFP.

    Yeh think it might be. Not quite ENFP, though the whole having blank patches, then ideas suddenly appearing and you running away with them seemed familiar for Ne. It's cool you guys do it lots too. And the walking the introvert extrovert border in different situations is something we do too. I think my dreams exist in a more psychological abstract realm though, so not sure on that part, but they aren't normally fantasy, maybe just possibilities. Actually when I think about it, most of my dreams would be quite strange in the real world, so maybe they are fantasy .

    We need confirmation from Jeffster and a new post.
