    It's also not uncommon to see socionics descriptions of gamma Fi as overstated, with all the dictatorial moral policing stuff. I think it's largely due to the fact that the people who developed the theory were alphas and reacted poorly to the gamma approach to morality. For example, I don't go around sternly policing people's ethical behavior constantly but I know unethical behavior when I see it and I also do think that jerks will always be jerks. It's not exactly that I'm writing them off for all eternity or that I'll go around carrying a grudge against them for the next twenty years or whatever: it's just that my mind only reluctantly jumps to the possibility that they could change for the better and even if it does consider the possibility, it won't really accept it as valid until it actually happens.

    On further interaction with you, though, I do think you're SLE > SEE. Your posts push for definitional precision and you seem to want theories to match up neatly and exactly with reality. I think SEEs might take a more "good enough is quite enough" approach to socionics.
    Yeah, lol, I'm almost exactly like that with this stuff, I understand however that theories won't ever match up with reality truly, that they are just models that need to be developed further etc. Blahblah.

    So what I relate to in that statement of yours is mainly my strong interest in precision etc. Compared to SEEs, I don't see some stuff as "good enough".

    Why SLE though over LSI? :P

    This says "Since our Ne is 2-dimensional, our probability estimates follow the lines of this anecdote: for a person to enter a room and see a dinosaur the chance is 1 in a many million – but for Zhukov it is 50/50: either he will see it or he won't. And he needs to be prepared for both of these contingencies."

    Wth? Seriously, how do you prepare specifically for the unlikely possibility of there being a dinosaur? :P

    By being aware of the option and therefore mentally having run through the scenario before which helps you react better in the event it happens.

    It's kind of the way you read fiction books about places and situations you'll likely never be in - it still helps you prepare for those circumstances when they actually do befall you, as well teach you how to empathise with those that actually have been through the experience. Your imagination is a vital tool to prepare for unforeseen events

    Call it stupid, but watching Jurassic park kept my brain busy for 6 months in figuring out evacuation situations for if a dino attacked the house and broke in and how to get all the animals and inhabitants out unharmed. Now, I grew up in Europe where the notion of being prey instead of predator was kind of...not part of my world. Jurassic park and other fiction gave me a chance to experience - like you would in a flight simulator - what it would be like to be prey and how you'd react. And it gave me a new appreciation for people who live in huts on the border of tiger territory - who deal with going into the jungle and facing that kind of predator on a daily basis. Im not saying I'll survive if I were in their stead, but i'm better prepared than I was as a kid who had no notion of what it was like to have something want to eat you.

    Well I suppose I should show up a week late, and a buck short. That was certainly interesting being led down the Golden Path. You certainly now your socionics, you remind me of a user called valaki similar posting style; I would guess that you are also from Eastern Europe? You scream SLE to me, given what I have seen from your posting style in this subforum.

Honestly I have no idea why she got that impression. I didn't mention the "special stuff" later, sure, but she also didn't!! So why blame me? Same friend also called me "too dramatic" later when after her distancing from me I tried to get close again.
    This is fairly standard Fi polr the inability to accurately judge psychological distances; either to hot or too cold XLEs suffer from having a yoyo interaction style, and have trouble maintaining well defined personal boundaries.

I dislike the idea of trying to join emotionality if I don't feel part of a group and I often don't, as I mentioned above.
    Actually misanthropy is simply the flipside of groupthink, because your thinking is still aristocratic, you are judging these groups to see whether they are worthy to join. Whereas an Alpha or Gamma wouldn’t consider that at all they would view these groups as individuals, and would judge them accordingly. That is to say it is as much about how you see the world, as how you see yourself.

    Anyway that’s my negative two cents, and welcome to the forum

    Tbh I almost never do that... not in a conscious way for sure.

    Heh ok I relate to that a little bit. I don't do it like you; I don't actually try to actively imagine the stuff too much, I just sort of "live the story" while reading and I do need to feel I'd be able to survive in certain hard situations I'm reading about. So while reading, some instinct comes up and I'll "feel" the situation or something in terms of how I would deal with and survive things. I can't explain better, sorry. It's all so nonverbal. I don't really associate this with any function anyway. But it's interesting to see that people are so different :P

    Thanks for the input. I didn't think of interpreting the "misanthropy" in this way but this is actually spot on.

    How would you describe the difference between Democratic and Aristocratic 'individualism' then?

    I would define it as the yearning to be part of something greater then oneself versus the yearning to be oneself. To elaborate imagine an aristocrat who adheres to the value of the chivalrous knight; from the outside he appears as an individual. But once you scratch you surface you see that his code means he belongs to something far greater.

    Ah, interesting. If anything, I'd say I'm interested in self-actualization on my own terms while developing valuable relationships along the way..

    What about someone who doesn't really adhere to any values or such codes of whatever role? (Nor to any idea of how "to be oneself".) That would be me btw.

    As for being part of something greater, elaborate on that? Does that mean following someone else's lead, someone else's ideas, etc.? Because then I definitely don't relate.
