    That's a wild presumption, considering that there are numerous "ask an XXXX anything" threads on Typology Central.

    Not really. "Ask an X" and "Ask an X anything" are formatted a bit differently. Plus, you did say we could ask you anything. I didn't assume you were a Redditor, I wanted to find out.

    Okay here are some more questions.

    How far did you go with your education?
    If you are currently still in school, what do you plan to be?
    What do you do currently for a living?
    Why did you join this site?

    Then ask it instead of presuming and expecting me to give an answer to a statement as if it was a question.

    Okay here are some more questions.

    How far did you go with your education?

    High-school.

    If you are currently still in school, what do you plan to be?

    I'm not in school.

    What do you do currently for a living?

    Nothing. Parents pay for food and taxes as I own the house. It's an, to them unconscious, exchange. In the meantime, I'm looking for a job.

    Why did you join this site?

    To find out my type. Later I'm likely to indulge discussions in other sections.

    ??? I didn't presume and I did ask a question. You would be able to answer the question if you used Reddit. I'm not sure what the big deal was. It's all in good fun.

    Now then...

    What was your favorite subject in school and why?
    What type of job are you looking for?
    Are you trying to pursue a job that relates to your interests or are you just looking to take any that will allow you to provide for yourself?

    Is that an objective criteria for all Si types or just the ones you know?

    I hated all subjects, the teachers were incredibly boring and the things that were thought in subjects like Physics and Biology and Chemistry were outdated by decades. If I have to choose, it's gotta be IT, which was also outdated by the way.

    Because I could still do better than my classmates, even though I didn't spend a second learning it. It felt pretty bad when I failed though, but I know that I felt overly-confident and I was aware of it at the time. I still was the best in the class for 2.5/4 years.


    What type of job are you looking for?

    I have to be realistic with the requirements. Every job I've applied so far requires college degree, but some people get in anyway. Due to those circumstances, IT Engineering, which means installing software, drivers and OS, setting up new PCs and configuring them. Should give me at least half a day at my laptop.

    Note that if the IT market would be better here, I would've been self-employed IT engineer and by now I would've been a CEO.


    Are you trying to pursue a job that relates to your interests or are you just looking to take any that will allow you to provide for yourself?

    A job that relates to my interests, even though I could go for a better paying but much harder, menial, physically-dangerous job that would pay more anytime.

    MBTI, cognitive functions, Enneagram, and all that crap is not hard science. Some people, even though their type is the same, can be very different.

    Exactly!
