    For anyone who has read any of the books or knows a lot about the subect, do you have any idea what percentage of the population are high self-monitors?

    I don't want it, I just need it, to breathe, to feel, to know I'm alive.

    Never take life to seriously.. No one gets out alive in the end anyway.

    Ok. So, after having dinner, and then watching an episode of Two and a Half Men, and then watching two episodes of Scrubs (tee hee! One of my favorite shows!! ), I'll take a stab at it.

    I understand what sub is saying about adaptability and catering to your audience (and I also see what he's saying, I don't see anything 'fake' about it), and I guess I can see how that might be a component of self-monitoring...but truly, I see that more just as adaptability, interpersonal skills, and social savviness (hopefully no offense here..I'm sure there's a lot more to it too). I do the same myself, to a certain degree - adapting my presentation so as to 'speak' on the same level as those I'm trying to communicate with. But is that 'self-monitoring'?? I guess I don't equate it as such. But maybe it is.

    It's why some of the questions puzzled me. Do I enjoy games like Charades?? No, I don't. I'm too self-conscious and basically I hate getting up in front of people like that and 'acting'. Why is something like Charades or acting skills tied to self-monitoring? That's what I'm failing to understand.

    But perhaps each of the 16 types has its own 'slant' to self-monitoring - and we each self-monitor in a way specific to our dominant functions.

    For example, my self-monitoring largely revolves around Fe. I'll often keep quiet rather than speak my views, for a variety of reasons. Just one example. So my self-monitoring is almost always related to whether or not I want to say something, and the manner in which I want to say it, if it needs to be said. ;-P And often spending a lot of time in my head agonizing over what I think is best to do. The Ni Ti loop. :-)

    Conversely, someone with Ne Ti or Fi Ne ... etc... would do their own style of self-monitoring.

    That's all I've got.

    Precisely! I'm like a handyman and the way that I act is just like whatever job I'm performing at the time. Doing a different job doesn't make me a different handyman. I still have the same motives. I'm still me. And the differences are not that bizarre. I will never flat out lie or compromise who I am or what I believe in in order to win the approval of other people. I might be vague, ask questions, have discussions, and take things as they come. I like to keep my options open, of course, and I like to keep the flow going. I don't sit there and think about who I am, refusing to move away from that. I think about who I could be and what I could experience. I'm a very fluid person.

    I'd say this is the battle of Fi and Fe.
