    Well done, you've unlocked a clue.

    This video might help you out a lot.

    @EJCC @jscrothers @Chanaynay goddamnit why does the forum always have to compel me to talk so much during the times when I am so busy. Anyway, per the discussion earlier.

    EJCC is correct that my 3 aspects are significantly more apparent in person. Part of the reason is, I sort of regard my 3 side as something that needs to be hidden from others. My 1 regards it as "imperfect and not to be displayed" and on the forum it's easy to do. In person, I tend to lose awareness of it, much to my chagrin. In essence, I am in constant fear it's going to make me seem like a conceited egotistical know-it-all prick. When I slip and realize people think that I feel REALLY horrible and slink back for extended periods. A large part of it is I am innately really talkative, and if I have thoughts, facts, advice, I have to resist the urge to spout it out FAR more often than push myself to spit it out. Too much of this, and you look like a dick. On the forum in essence what you're seeing is me having a more proper filter, as well as very reduced frequencies in situations that make my 3 sides show up. 3's tend to be composed, and in person I am very composed, despite being emotional/expressive. I'm just talkative. It... doesn't make any sense to me to stay quiet on things going wrong. It's a huge, huge compulsion that I have to resist. I tend to care less about the image that particular thing causes because I see it as for the greater good.

    My image is pretty damn important to me. The thing is though, how I care about my image depends on people I am around. If I am around people I like and respect, oh hell yeah image matters. People I don't, I don't care. Further, as much as I LOTHE admitting it, my status (perceived and actual) matters A TON. I get bent out of shape if my status is not high enough, and I will actively seek to raise it to a satisfying level. Because I am a core 1 though, my reasons for doing this is it allows me to have a larger impact and effect on improvement and fixing the things I am around. It's not for the status itself (though it is partially, I love being important), but because status is useful. If high status and image wasn't useful, and if I had no substance to back it up, I doubt I'd enjoy it as I'd feel like a fraud.

    As for the ENFJ bit, JScrothers analysis is correct. ENFJ's are inheriently rather authoratative by default. I have yet to meet one who doesn't have that streak. It's just not "classic" authority as people think of it. We want social order. Though mine appears more classic because I am a 1w2. Because of my tritype along with this, power structures are HUGE for me. Whenever I meet a new group of people, one of the first things I'll start doing (without actively deciding to do so) is figure out who is in what position. What are their statuses. If the power structure is explicit (president, vp, all that stuff), then I'll link the two together. I started doing this at an early age because it allows me to figure out how to approach and treat people appropriately (as appropriate treatment giving is not an innate skill for me). If you understand power structures, you know how to work with it.

    As for why I seem to always agree with the mods on the forum, it's largely because I am a former mod on another forum. I know this shit. I've been through a lot of shit. Because of my intolerance for rebels without a clue (which is because of my type), I get uppity over it. I rarely if ever see a former mod side with dissents, unless the dissent is valid. Even so, I don't always 100% agree with mods. I do disagree somewhat frequently, I just seldom voice it, because it won't be useful or helpful towards anything. The only time I voice that sort of dissent is if I think it will actually be helpful and useful.

    dear sir,

    with much respect, I must point out that nobody here really can figure out what goes on in any other member's mind (which in the context of us all being members of a forum dedicated to personality typing makes me recall an old signature quote that I had from Vonnegut's Mother Night "We are what we pretend to be, so we must be careful about what we pretend to be.")

    some of us pretend to actually be normal and sane people on a regular basis while others are fine with opening their mouths (either physically or metaphorically) and removing all doubts about whether or not they are a bit off. some swing back and forth between the two.

    as an example, if the forum had any clue what really goes on in my head I would probably be banned... or at least looked at with great suspicion forevermore

    sincerely,

    whatever

    Half the time I can't figure out whats going on in my own mind.

    it's generally safer that way

    (I mean, I can disturb myself sometimes and that's pretty hard to do! )

    I would like to point out that there was no implied "I" in my post you quoted. It may be read as "Trying to figure out how oneself thinks in an even remotely objective way remarkably difficult, yes."

    Sorry for the lack of imprecision, but I prefer a casual dialect to an excessively formal one these days, unless I'm forced into being formal.
    An argument is two people sharing their ignorance.

    A discussion is two people sharing their understanding, even when they disagree.

    but excessive formality on occasion warms the cockles of my heart

    as does occasionally writing things as if I'm some really old dude who hangs out with books all of the time but not people

    Well, you wouldn't want to sound like me then. I'm a really old dude who hangs out with computer and dances with beautiful women a lot.

    I'm sorry, but the kids in a horror movie would NEVER seek you out to ask about the legends behind the supernatural killer who is stalking them

    plus, you're probably not NEARLY as really old as I'm classifying as really old... each new decade I hit I raise the ceiling for what I consider to be old

    you may actually have FUN *gasp*
