At my old job, I was considered the most adaptable, least by-the-book of the managers. I didn't aim for that; I actually had a lot of respect for the rules. I just had a more flexible approach, where the work product mattered more than the process.

    I think like a J because I want everything to be a certain way, and I find comfort in structure. I like to go to the same restaurants, order the same foods, go for the same walk, etc... I even watch the same movies over and over. I'm absolutely the most predictable person on Earth. Also, I'm very decisive - I like choosing something and closing the door on other options. I have an opinion on almost everything, and I share it easily. I have very specific ways that some things have to be done.
    OK, so you're a J that spaces out every now and then. And list-making is so painfully Si.

    And that Ne is "fun for a while" (indicating that you find it second nature, meaning it suits your tertiary rather than inferior)...

    Either that, or a severly maladjusted NP.

    That depends on whether she sticks to the lists or just makes them to organize her thoughts! Big difference there.

    I would wager list-making is so Ti.

    Everything you post confuses people because it's all about socionics. lol

    I am getting Se from her (socionics wise) I'd say beta. ISTj.

    I think any type can make lists, as justxher mentions, it all depends on what you do with those lists, and how frequent it is. For example, I can get list psycho sometimes when I get pissed about how much I suck at wasting my time and forgetting things and I'm hoping to turn over a new leaf, but it never lasts. Never.

    Holy moly does all of this sound like my in-laws or what, Ruthie! They are both SJs and it can drive me bonkers. 'Olive Garden again for your birthday? Really? Exact same thanksgiving dinner for the fortieth time, and you still honestly love it?'

    No offense or anything. It's kind of cute, in a way. I just don't get it because it's like the polar opposite of me.

    But it also makes me think Si dom for you, like you were saying, because I think those with Si as a secondary function like a bit more variety.

    All of the lists, timing yourself, etc, seems pretty seriously Te to me. My ISFJ mother-in-law, on the other hand, is exceptional at making quilts, doing puzzles, which I see as more Ti-oriented activity.

    You know, ISTJs also see tradition and family and the social group as being important, so that could be why I was thinking Fe. My ISTJ dad, when he was angry with me, used to talk about how selfish I was, how I always put myself first. But he definitely has that tertiary Fi- getting angry when my mom makes something he doesn't like to eat for dinner, hiding out by himself in his office, getting defensive when people disagree with him, etc.

    Interesting. I agree with most of this, except I really seriously doubt the ESTJ for 2 reasons. First, I'm just not an extrovert, no matter how the functions break down. Second, I think Si is probably my top function, certainly higher than Te. That might account for the daydreaming and the "living in my head" aspect.

    And yeah, I mentioned the list-making because it seemed like a very Si thing to do.

    Thanks, VagrantFarce.

    Do you show strong Fe? Do you feel a recurring desire to organize others into situations that will help them? Is a strong sense of community values and social support net important to you?
    Community values and a social support net are extremely important to me in theory, but I'm not a great personal catalyst for them. I work in politics, and I'm a populist, communitarian Democrat, so I spend a lot of time thinking about (and arguing about) why those values are important. But when you bring it down to the level of interpersonal relationships rather than ideals, I'm just not as good at showing warmth or empathy. I don't come across as cold or anything, but as I said before, I usually meet a person's problem with a plan of action or objective advice and not with the sometimes necessary shoulder to cry on.

    Even though the function breakdown determines whether you're an Introvert or Extravert?

    Just an extra tip: make sure you're not confusing the need for outer structure with the need for inner structure (i.e. the difference between Te and Ti). Te types want their environment controlled, whereas Ti want things to make sense in their head. Te types control their environment by imposing structure on it, Ti types control their environment (if at all) by simply withdrawing to a place that they're comfortable with.

    Describe your relationships with other people.

    What aspects of your life do you believe are the most important and why? For example, your faith, your interests/hobbies, your friends, etc.

    What are your hobbies/interests and why do you enjoy them?
    This should be interesting... I'm curious to see how this adds up...

    Relationships: I'm very different with family and non-family. I'm absolutely loyal to family. I enjoy spending time with them and feel completely comfortable around them. I always answer when they call.

    Non-family is different. I make friends pretty easily, but have a hard time keeping them because I do dodge their calls and cancel plans with them. [fun example: as I was typing this paragraph, my boyfriend called and I blew him off]. For a very long time, I can be pretty indifferent to people. Nothing but time can warm me up. So, if a friend/boyfriend can deal with my fickleness and slight avoidance for a long time, they win me over and have me on their side forever.

    In romantic relationships, I've always said I'd be much more in love after 20 years of marriage than I ever could be just starting out. Romance doesn't hold a lot of magic for me - and I've never felt the "falling in love" emotion, at least in the way others describe it. Love for me is something that just has to grow with time - someone who sticks around through thick and thin, someone who I have memories of shared experiences, etc...

    I do consider my faith to be very important to me, but I haven't actually gone to church regularly since I was 8 years old (I'm 30 now). I was raised Baptist, went through the requisite teenage agnosticism, and spent most of my 20s in seeker mode. I tried out some of the more liberal churches but found them a little too wishy-washy for me (I wanted a church, not a community service group). I guess I'm still in seeker mode, but I'm strongly considering converting to Catholicism because I like the combination of social justice and high personal moral standards.

    I pretty much eat, sleep, and breathe politics. I love every aspect of it, from the inside-the-beltway stuff to the idealistic (but gratingly self-righteous) grassroots-y side. I love American history, I'm big on holidays and love all the festive ritual type stuff, love old movies (have a soft-spot for Frank Capra flicks), and I love baseball, especially my Baltimore Orioles.

    I love playing around with anything that can be categorized - I own marketing books, college guides, baby names books, and other random books of lists. Sometimes, I'll set up weird little cross-discipline research projects for myself, like the time I tried to figure out a correlation between most popular baby names and favored political candidates by state (trying to test whether there are some names that are favored by Democrats/Republicans). I love demographics in general, and enjoy coming up with elaborate stereotypes like that.

    I also love trivia, and once or twice a month, I'll do the trivia nights at a bar. I love to go for long walks or long drives, because that gives me a chance to zone out and daydream. When I do either one of those, the outside world barely registers.

    I guess one commonality with a lot of the things I like is that I like Old Things. Aside from the American history and the old movies, I have my house decorated with old furniture and use old Life magazines as wall decorations. I have a soft spot for senior citizens, and I've been called an "Old Soul" by one of my friends. But I don't always act old - I have a very playful side. It snowed the other day, and instead of shoveling it, or digging out my car, I had fun throwing snowballs. I love playing softball in the spring/summer, I love roller coasters, I joke around constantly, and my favorite pair of shoes are a beat up pair of sneakers.

    Does that help?

    EDIT: a few more things occurred to me that might be relevant...

    -I love playing board games; mostly of the Taboo, Scattergories variety. (Si?)
    -I love debating. I have some pretty quirky views that I've developed, and I love just having a beer and arguing them for fun.
    -I dropped out of high school when I was 16, but even that wasn't particularly rebellious. Mostly, I just stayed around the house playing ping-pong, and ended up graduating college on time anyway. I didn't really get into any kind of trouble, and it didn't really hurt me in any way.

    I don't really know socionics... can you elaborate on the beta ISTj?
