    When I have a goal/When I teach/In the lead: Direct/Initiate
    When I have a goal and am not in the lead: Inform/Initiate
    When I am helping someone: Inform (or direct)/Initiate
    When I am chilling out: Inform (or direct)/Respond

    As a child-mid-20s: abstract, pragmatic
    Now: abstract, affiliative (more so than before, anyway)

    As a child-mid-20s: Related to Keirsey's rational
    Now: Relate to Keirsey's idealist

    do any of those combinations feel more "natural" than the others? are there certain ways of interacting that you've had to learn over the years (e.g. learning to be patient, trying not to be too direct, learning to assert yourself etc.)?

    When I was younger I was very impatient, fiercely independent (almost to a fault), and quite fearful about asserting myself. Over time, I have learned to temper my independence and ask for help when needed because that is just more effective in the long run and to assert myself quite well. However, I still haven't learned to be patient, so if you know any way to sort of hurry along the process, please let me know.

    1w2

    Absolutely, positively, 100% sure about this. Just read the description. Totally, completely, totally me.

    This, and I mean, this:

    One with a two wing


    General description

    Average 1/2 combines the dry, rational, practical concerns of type one with the wet, other-directedness of two. The emotional repression of one is somewhat balanced by the self-defined goodness and desire-to-please of two. 1/2s typically care more about appearance than 1/9, and because of their oneish perfectionism they often dress immaculately. The pride from their two-wing makes them more visibly sensitive to criticism than 1/9, although both subtypes are internally very hard on themselves. Unlike 2/1, they would usually rather do the right thing than please someone else, although they want to do both if possible.


    Balanced and transcendent states

    Healthy 1/2s begin to loosen up somewhat, becoming able to let go of their righteous judgements. They begin to allow for the possibility that their views might not be entirely accurate. Their other-directed corrections soften up and actually become helpful rather than intrusive. They become able to see the difference between proud perfectionism and healthy tolerance of differences.

    When 1/2s attain spiritual opening, they can become teachers of the highest order. One integrates to seven, bringing in joy and enthusiasm, while two integrates to four, replacing selfish manipulation with genuine compassionate concern for others. Deep oneish wisdom combines with twoish loving generosity for an intensely personal kind of guidance, even when they are addressing large groups. Somehow advanced 1/2s seem to know exactly what is needed for maximum teaching value in any situation. They teach by asking the right questions, gently guiding the student to deeper insights.


    Unbalanced and unhealthy states

    Unhealthy 1/2s run into problems when twoish pride interacts with oneish perfectionism. A tremendous inner conflict rages between the two-wing that says "I am a good, generous person" and the oneish view that sees every tiny error as a sign of fundamental worthlessness. One disintegrates to four, where self-critical introspection creates a spiral of hopelessness, while two disintegrates to eight, so that when the heavily repressed anger erupts it does so in sudden (but usually very short) fits of hyper-critical rage, sometimes accompanied by overt violence. Naturally these violent fits then become more food for the self-judgment spiral, as the 1/2 falls into guilty remorse.

    In the worst cases, repressed oneish anger and hostile twoish pride combine, creating intense sessions of wrenching, hand-wringing despair. If my anger is not expressed towards others, then it is directed at myself. I am not good enough if I cannot meet my own standards. I must work harder and harder, or I will fail my own increasingly difficult self-tests. Self-punishment is necessary, in the form of grueling work days, endless tormented repetitions of not-quite perfect tasks, and every kind of refusal to experience any sort of pleasure. Suicide is possible.


    Physical appearance

    Most 1/2s take care to appear neat, clean, and orderly. Hair is carefully clipped, especially facial hair (if any) and clothing is just so. Beards are almost always partial, shaved in places for a distinguished effect. Physically they are usually on the thin side, although of course there are exceptions. They hold their heads high. Sometimes it seems as if they are looking down their noses at the world. When they smile there might be a condescending feel. Maybe the eyebrows are lifted perpetually into points, showing a judgmental quality.


    Callings

    Some 1/2s find work that expresses an urge to help other people become perfect. Teachers of all kinds, but particularly languages, humanities, science, and medicine. Doctors, dentists, physicians, surgeons, health counsellors. Dieticians, tour guides, advice columnists. Another common direction is towards discriminating legal wisdom. Court judges, prosecuting attorneys, criminal analysts, and legislators. A 1/2 might find a way to champion a cause. Environmental crusaders, public safety specialists, regulators of morals and ethics, religious leaders, charismatic preachers. There are 1/2 ship captains, superheroes, actors, and mathematicians. Of course, 1/2s can also be found doing many other kinds of work.

    Which of these sounds more accurate?

    Theme is mentoring, leading people to achieve their potential and become more of who they are. Talents lie in empathizing with profound interpersonal insight and in influencing others to learn, grow, and develop. Lead using their exceptional communication skills, enthusiasm, and warmth to gain cooperation toward meeting the ideals they hold for the individual or the organization. Catalysts who draw out the best in others. Thrive on empathic connections. Frequently called on to help others with personal problems.
    Theme is directing and mobilizing. Talents lie in developing policy, establishing plans, coordinating and sequencing events, and implementing strategy. Excel at directing others in reaching the goals dictated by their strong vision of the organization. Thrive on marshaling forces to get plans into action. Natural organization builders and almost always find themselves taking charge in ineffective situations. Enjoy creating efficiently structured systems and setting priorities to achieve goals.
    [edit]also did you look at this yet?

    [edit2] why were you unassertive when you were young?

    Mentoring is slightly more than the other one, but I can do both.

    also did you look at this yet?
    I will check it out and get back to you.


    why were you unassertive when you were young?
    I was rather shy. That changed over time.

    Ygolo helped me a lot (Thank you!) and we found out the following:

    1. abstract v. concrete (strongest preference)

    2. affiliative v. pragmatic (2nd strongest preference)

    3. thinking v. feeling; structure v. motive (weakest preferences)

    4. On a scale of -13 to 13, I scored 2 on directing.

    5. On a scale of -13 to 13, I scored 1 1/2 initiating.

    6. I scored zero preference on control v. movement. To me, they are not a dichotomy.

    According to Ygolo that leads us to believe that I am very slightly an In-Charge type.

    Well, you seem to be an NJ at the very least Just need to figure out whether you're Te or Fe. Figuring out your Inferior Function can really help in determining whether you're I or E as well.

    Agreed.

    If my Fe wasn't so god-awful I'd say ENFJ....but no way. Even Pinky said no way thousands of times...INFJ doesn't make sense. Every NT I know says no way with NTJ. GAHHHH!!!
