    Default The Untyped

    Hi everyone - figured after reading through enough of these threads, I should introduce myself. I didn't enter a type. Skimming over the other intros, I see most people led with that, so I guess I'm a bit behind the curve. I still haven't figured it out with certainty though (and I promise, it isn't for a lack of research). I'm hoping some of the people on this board can help clarify it for me, but there's plenty of time for that. For now, just looking forward to getting to know everyone.

    Welcome! We'll have you typed in no time. I'm guessing you're a P. Don't ask why, I feel it.

    And the name "Ruthie" always reminds me of "7th Heaven".

    That's one of the things that's causing the most difficulty in my typing. I THINK like a J, but I ACT like a P. Unless I'm comfortable in a situation - then I think the J part shows up more.

    My Ni tells me FP based on the first post alone.


    But Ni's a myth anyway so... :P

    Hi! I see "Ruthie" but I keep reading "Roofie". Hmmm... something to think about.

    Have you been able to lock down any of the functions?

    How does one do that? They're slippery little suckers.

    That's what I thought. Oh, you're all so busted!!! For making it sound like they're important.

    First of all - thanks for the welcome. Seems like a very friendly board so far.

    The arguments:

    E/I

    -I talk a lot. As obnoxious as it sounds, I probably talk more than I listen.
    -I'm comfortable giving group presentations (and often excel at them)
    -Sometimes I'll speak before thinking
    -I think out loud
    -I'm always happy to share my latest idea/thought/opinion

    BUT...

    -I like a lot of alone time
    -I enjoy solitary walks
    -I often dodge phone calls from friends
    -I have a hard time approaching new people
    -I can be very private

    N/S

    -I think in patterns, metaphors, theories, analogies, etc...
    -I usually see the big picture
    -I'm completely unobservant
    -I'm comfortable with concepts
    -I miss details
    -I link seemingly unrelated pieces of information
    -I have a tough time following rules and procedures

    BUT...

    -I value loyalty, community, family, tradition, etc...
    -I have good hand-eye coordination
    -I don't have near-supernatural hunches
    -I have a good memory for dates
    -I love history

    T/F

    -I love to debate ideas and theory
    -I don't mind conflict - actually enjoy it sometimes
    -I have a tough time showing emotion, and can come across as awkward when I try
    -I usually lay out a position in point-by-point form
    -I'm uncomfortable with casual physical contact
    -I'm very analytical

    BUT...

    -I always side with my friends and family, even if it's irrational
    -I'm not cold or emotionless
    -I've gravitated toward Feeler jobs
    -I go into things knowing which "side" I'm on, as opposed to taking an objective approach

    J/P

    -I see things in terms of Right and Wrong
    -I like structure
    -I tend to piece things together in a hierarchical order (Thing A is BETTER than Thing B...)
    -I like to have order in my world - and I can have high expectations of the people close to me
    -I don't have much of a need for adventure or spontaneity (wow, I sound fun)

    BUT...

    -I'm not all that ambitious
    -I procrastinate a lot
    -Most people who have worked for me would describe me as laid back
    -My desk is messy (even though my house is clean)
    -I'm certainly not a workaholic
    -I'm usually pretty friendly with people
    -I like to laugh and joke around; I'm certainly not overly serious

    You're doing well then. BryNTP thinks of Roofie, so given the choice, I'll take the 7th Heaven reference.
