    Question vs [Type7], and other questions...

    So first I tested type 7w6 and nowadays its 5w6. I agree AND disagree with both descriptions.

    How do I know if I am a type 5 who was previously disintegrated or if I am a now integrated type 7.


    Also, when you do tests do you select what you intend/would prefer to do or what you actually do (whether you like it or not)?


    For example, I am a planner and a list maker... I HAVE to make lists in order to know what needs to be done, to feel a bit organised and such. BUT, I don't actually carry out my plans. I only plan so I know the direction I would like to go, or to get a picture of all tasks to complete. Planning is separate from the execution of plans... so is such a question valid?
    This is the things I don't like with personality tests, there is never a real "yes or no" question.


    Is there a definitive list out there? Sigh. I am obsessed with finding out my type now.

    You don't sound like a 5, I'd guess either En 6 or 7.

    You gotta go beyond behavior, you need to to focus on your motivations.

    edit: chart removed, this one is much better , but I couldn't find an image.

    What you describe sounds more like tertiary Te than anything. I would say pick the description with the negatives that resonate the most with you.

    @Rasofy Motivations huh? I got this here

    No
    Yes
    Kinda

    Type 7:

    Basic Fear: Of being deprived and in pain
    Basic Desire: To be satisfied and content—to have their need fulfilled
    Key Motivations: Want to maintain their freedom and happiness, to avoid missing out on worthwhile experiences, to keep themselves excited and occupied, to avoid and discharge pain.


    Type 5

    Basic Fear: Being useless, helpless, or incapable
    Basic Desire: To be capable and competent
    Key Motivations: Want to possess knowledge, to understand the environment, to have everything figured out as a way of defending the self from threats from the environment.


    Motivations
    I do hope I am interpreting freedom the right way. I am obsessed with freedom and independence. But at the same time, my real motivation, the reason behind all I do, is to figure out. Simply put, just to figure out whatever it is (this is why I am here too). If I cannot understand something it is hard to function in relation to it.

    Basic Desires
    Competence is so very important to me (although.. competence in what? I decide). But what is the purpose of being competent in something but to ensure security? So I am siding more with Type 7 "to be content". I am more interested in the absence of dissatisfaction (pain???) than the presence of satisfaction.

    Basic Fears
    While I do fear deprivation of my basic needs... I would think that is normal, so I do not agree with Type 7. Fear of (emotional) pain? I guess that is arguable. I do withdraw a lot and isolate myself to avoid pain... But when I am withdrawn I don't worry about it at all. I do have a fear of being incompetent though... Basically, none of these basic fears really hit the nail on the head.

    As for type 6... I have never really thought about that. I will look into it. And of course, thanks a lot for your feedback

    To clarify, I was thinking more along with the levels of development concerning weaknesses. Here's a good thread on it. Levels of Development
