    C'mon you know you wanted to have a punch in the face. RAWRRRRRRRRR! So full of love and caring.

    And now that I posted that I couldn't stand imaginary friends called Sarah who hogged the swings on the playground that were obviously available as a child, I'll never live down the ESTJ reputation. I should 'a' known better.

    How can that be when I wanted to knock the living lights out of people who did that on a regular basis as a kid.

    I dunno...how can you be ENFP one minute, ESTJ the next, ENFJ after that, and after that it's just a match to the death between ISFJ and ESTP?

    Recently, I have always had to be a freaking military commander in these classes because these people begged to be whipped and bullied (with words, of course, I mean this figuratively) and don't listen to my natural mode (inspiring with encouragement and energetic enthusiasm along with a fair amount of strictness to keep people on track and reach their goals, with a healthy balance). I've been forced to permanently act on Te/Se-CENTRAL 24-fucking-7, and it's starting to make me go a little bit apeshit. These guys beg for a lousy ESTJ on the one hand and an ESFP on the other, and I'm playing the role quite well in two of my classes, overcompensating in other classes by 'trying to be their friend' as they put it; of course they mean it in a disparaging way and also practically beg for the whip in the anonymous questionnaires. In my other classes where I act like an ESTJ, they are all like, "It's great that you are in control and blah blahblah."
    So that must be it, then. You're just adapting to that circumstance, and since Te is tertiary, you can engage it a lot, though it is still somewhat taxing after awhile (and Se would be the worst, since it is way at the bottom of the preference).

    As for you saying that you were Te-ish when young, it was probably some other circumstance like this that necessitated it. That would also make it even more developed than normal now.

    Okay, once again....

    First, I'm not complaining about people who genuinely help me with my type. Those who ask questions, and give me detailed reasons for their answers. People who really help me. These people bring me further, and I have really thanked them in the open and in person for their efforts and help. These have included, among others, BrainandHeart, SolitaryWalker, Ygolo, Jeffster, Wonkavision, VagrantFarce, Amargith, INTJMom, and a dozen others who have actually sat down, talked to me, and know me as well as anyone can know me on an anonymous medium such as the Internet. Or people who have asked me several questions and have actually worked together with me.

    The thing that pisses me off are two things:

    a) People who just throw something out there with no background or reason. These include people who just acted like they had a cactus up their butts and threw ESTJ at me for no apparent reason except that they noticed certain undesirable traits in my character. AND YES, I'm human and have UNDESIRABLE traits like anyone else does.

    b) This whole system seems to be contrived in a way that is confusing and makes no sense for me. As soon as I seem to be on the right path - BOOM it's wrong. Therefore my rant about how, "Maybe these people are full of shit and they don't know jack shit about what they are talking about." That was not addressed towards any random members, but the people who designed the system in general.

    Secondly, I think it is important for you to know that when I get frustrated, I often speak in sweeping generalities that is not addressed to the people here or any others. This comment about how, "At first, when I posted crazy blogs, everyone was so sure I was an ENFP; now that I post differently, I hear ESTJ, ISTJ, INFJ, ENFJ, etc." was not an attack on the people who said it, but an attack on the system itself. Meaning, the system obviously provides too much maneuvering room for people to make an accurate assessment!

    If I had a problem with the people, I would have said, "X is a bitch because she said this." or "Y is an asshole because he said that." or "Z drives me nuts because he keeps changing his mind."

    Did I say that? NO! Because it wasn't SUPPOSED TO BE PERSONAL. It was a general critique and an expression of my extreme frustration during this whole search.

    Because I realized that my general intent was not accepted and/or understood, I simply removed it. Perhaps I did not express myself properly enough, and on objective viewing, saw how it could possibly be misconstrued. Therefore, when I have developed an argument suitable for posting (rather than in the heat of the moment, so to speak) I will post it. Then you can see what I really wanted to say.

    I AM GRATEFUL FOR ALL THE HELP (GENUINE HELP) I received. I think I said that several times. How many more times do I have to say it and express it for you to accept it???? I am simply expressing my frustration over a seemingly unending, unproductive, and completely tail-chasing search DESPITE all the wonderful help people have given me, leading me to believe that the people who developed the system, "don't know jack shit." But I really don't know. I need to think about it more.

    NOW, hopefully, you understand me. (Finally)

    P.S. If it had been intended as personal, I would have called it "TypoC Member Rant" or "All the stupid idiots who thought they were TRYING to help me rant". I didn't call it that. I called it "Little Linguist's Type Rant" for a reason, namely, that *I* am frustrated about *MY* type.
    I assert all that above is one or the other of these:

    Tertiary Ne (ESxJ): "Ok, then, I'll bluff. We'll see how he responds to that. I don't know where this is leading, but at least it's leading somewhere new. This takes courage. Most people wouldn't have the courage to reach for the unknown at a time like this, but I can, because I can trust my principles to work in any new situation." The Secondary Function (Si) would say: "What are the facts here, really? Set the decision-making criteria aside and look at the facts freely, without without regard to any particular purpose or how the facts appear to others."

    Tertiary Te (ExFP): "Unfair!! I have to stick to my guns, I will not be bullied or cheated. Any number of authorities agree with me. All my friends agree with me. Everyone can see that my response is directly mandated by the situation: anything else would be irresponsible. These facts absolutely settle the matter, and there is no point in looking at it any further." The Secondary Function (Fi) would say: "Fair or not, reasonable or not, recognized by anyone or not, what would truly accomplish some good here?"


    Why? Because, as someone pointed out to me a while back, and as I currently over-state as a hypothesis: online, in-forum, we all tend to write from the tertiary. INTJs sound emo-whiners, ISXPs are wholistic world-viewers, ENXJs are slick sensory groovers, INFPs reminisce, ENTPs promote togetherness, and so on and so on. And--I corral the thesis further--the above quoted rant sounds like Ne or Te.


    I almost hesitate to provide yet another link, extending the research phase weeks and months longer still, but: Which one is you?
    Bellison uncorked a flood of horrible profanity, which, translated, meant, "This is extremely unusual."
