    Post Am I an IEI or something else entirely?

    I am starting to think that I am an IEI/INFp. Maybe this just lines up with the suspicion that I have of me being an MBTI INFJ. I am thinking that if I am an IEI, I probably would be IEI-Fe.
    Pros for Ni base:
    I tend to be quite daydreamy and I tend to think in pictures. I am also rather future-oriented. I am curious and obsessive about what I am interested in. I am a very good creative writer; I come up with new stories easily.
    Cons for Ni base:
    I am not good at envisioning the future. I also "control" my daydreaming so that I can get things done. I tend to think in dichotomies a lot, which does not correspond well with Socionics Ni, especially Ni base. I also do not speak very metaphorically (which is associated with "N" types), unlike in my writings sometimes. I also have a good factual memory.
    Pros for Fe creative:
    I can seem more social than I actually am when I am with my friends (ambiverted tendencies). I am very emotionally expressive. I also used to be interested in politics in the way that Beta types do, especially Beta NFs. I cared about certain issues in the world with the desire to make it right. That being said, I do not intend to act on this desire because I want to be pragmatic in my future actions.
    Cons for Fe creative:
    I focus on my own system of morality more than I focus on influencing the emotions of a group. I do not monitor the emotional state of the group; I am not good at reading "the room" or people. I am not great at influencing the emotions of other people.
    Pros for Ti HA:
    I use my Ti very frequently. I am always searching for knowledge, I love to learn new things, and I am quite rule-oriented. The Socionics definition of Ti also seems to suggest that it is an organization function, which I am very organized. I also plan things a lot.
    Cons for Ti HA:
    Ti base/ignoring might fit me more. I use Ti very well. LxI could fit me well. That being said, I think I am too authoritative to be Se PoLR. Ne PoLR would be a better fit, due to my unchanging opinions and belief that there is "the one right way" to do something. I can also see myself as Te base (which would mean that I am Ne/Se HA, leaning more towards Ne HA) because I acquire information from external sources frequently, I am focused on productivity, and I am assertive. I can deal with "hard facts" well.
    My relationship with Socionics Se:
    I am intrigued by the workings of politics, law, and business. I admire influential people. That being said, I do not see myself as a dual to an SEE/SLE. I am very authoritative, and I am more attracted to Fi/Si dominants because I see them as more "chill" than I am. I am very ambitious and I tend to be industrious.
    Pros for Te PoLR:
    There were a few times when I have overlooked facts. I had an astrology phase for a while before I discovered typology. I can be quite curious; I have tested things that were not scientifically verified but others said that they have worked. That being said, I have harbored a logical skepticism while I was testing them, to see if it worked. I did not just blindly believe that they would work. I hate being seen as incompetent or lazy as well.
    Cons for Te PoLR:
    I like working with factual information. I have been skilled at factual analysis. I also focus on being productive when I work. Dealing with matters of efficiency is not painful to me. I think that efficiency is fairly important, but my perfectionism does impede my efficiency. I am also very assertive; I like leading others. I have heard that IEIs do not like leading other people. I am also very frugal and self-disciplined. I also prefer to work all the time, pushing against my emotions to get the job done. I have heard that IEIs working capacities are emotionally driven. I also think that being fair and judging based on standards is a good attribute, and I do not find it painful to judge something based on standards (unbiased). If anything, I can find it painful for me to judge based according to other people's feelings.
