    Default Help being typed!

    I usually recieve the same two types but I won't mention them. What type do you think I am based upon the following info?


    -I think myself into existential hell ocasionally.
    -I'm messy and lazy but if given a task I care about I'm a complete perfectionist.
    -I read one/two books a month.
    -I like to socialise even though it makes me anxious and it's hard work.
    -I don't believe that objective morality exists. We live by our desires and emotions, which some people mistake for being some kind of higher moral truth.
    -I have a serious expression most of the time even when content.
    -I'm not particularly emotional all the time but I can feel strong overwhelming emotion in certain situations. I'm also a romantic.
    -I have a few close friends.
    -I'm insecure.
    -I generally feel above average intelligence but I don't declare it (besides something like this). I don't think that I'm happier for it and it often makes me feel out of place in some seemingly redundant arguments.
    -I suck at maths and science.
    -I have an eye for design and engineering.
    -I want to express myself to people and communicate similiar feelings and be as open as possible and feel full of love and compassion. But i'm too paranoid/insecure/judging. For instance, I would fear expressing myself too openly and sincerely for worry of being called pretentious or being humiliated.

    Hi, thanks.

    What makes you think F?

    I'm often very objective and deal with situations based upon rationality. It's a hard one... i mean i'm not really a caring person. A lot of drama feels ridiculous to me... and I see it as boring/needless. If I rationally see the greatness/importance of an emotional issue THEN I engage my emotions.

    Or maybe I don't quite understand the F description.

    It's tough to explain. The last paragraph you wrote made me think of you as an F. I won't be of much help in figuring out your type, but I can tell you that being objective and rational doesn't mean you're not an F.

    I try to base my ideas mostly on logic, and they remain there inside my head. When it comes to choose based on instinct, on feeling, I don't have to think things true...and I bear in mind my current feelings (not to be confused with emotions) and then act in accordance to my previously thought-out ideas.

    I'd use hunger as an example of a feeling that isn't an emotion. Logic might tell you that you've just eaten an hour ago and that you can't be hungry, but it's up to you to act upon that feeling or not.

    INxP is what i suspect you are trying to decide...

    Feeling is a tricky concept because it deals with things on the basis of value judgments. these can look really rational - they often do in mature IxFJs - or they can look rather irrational, especially in young ExFPs - but they are never logical. instead of logical consistency, they rely on weighing things on the basis of subjective value to achieve a different type of consistency.

    for example - what is more important, art, or science?

    stereotypical F-driven answer:
    art is more important because it's personal and expressive, it means something to people and they build their lives around it.

    (my attempt at the) stereotypical T-driven answer:
    science is more important because it's a logical and consistent way of figuring out the world around us.

    obviously we can have overlapping ideas, and i personally would probably say that there is really no way to separate art from science and science from art, plus we all do use both kinds of thinking.

    i think the question becomes, when all else is neutral, which comes more naturally? which is your preference when you're doing something that totally doesn't matter to anything else, like walking through a field? do you prefer then still to think logically, or to not be concerned with logic?
