    Default Returning after forgetting about TypeC for a while.

    While I didn't forget about MBTI or Socionics, I forgot about TypeC for quite a while and am glad to be back. Maybe I'll decide to go a bit further than merely testing the waters this time around...

    For the sake of coherency, I thought it'd be helpful to make it known that I've put off truly developing myself for a long time, not due to choice, but because of persisting external circumstances. When analyzing my past, it almost feels like everything that took place happened in a parallel universe. I'll spare you the details better left for a psych to piece together and refine, but I have had a long-standing issue with repression, making defining my type somewhat more difficult and lengthy than had this issue not been present to begin with.

    Moving along, I'm a 20 year old male and a community college student. My hobbies are reading, listening to music and playing video games, but I have just recently begun to get into photography and am considering getting into programming. I'm a pretty serious-minded individual, and my essential drive is to understand the functioning of several aspects of the world, which I believe would classify my type as part of the NT temperament based on what I've read. I used to think I was an NF, but what I found to be suggestive of a mistyping was that:

    - I'm piss poor at understanding my emotions. They're ridiculous, and attempting to decipher them often results in wasted effort and going back to square one.

    - Whenever I get into discussions that really indulge my intuitive function, with either my ENFP or INFP buddies for example, it's clear that I want to take the discussion much farther than they do. The only other type that I really felt on the same level in a discussion with was an ENTJ.

    - I don't feel that NF's are my cognitive companions, but instead cognitive cousins. I'm open to the notion that I could be an NF with an underdeveloped F function (e.g. INFJ), but I don't think that's likely to be the case.

    Anyway, I suspect my cognitive function stack to be arranged as Ti-Ne-Si-Fe. Thinking back on high school, I had a couple INTP's in some of my classes, I noted then that our arguments while debating "flowed" in a particular manner and I noticed that we also shared the affinity for storing a bunch of random facts to be called upon when needed for support (Perhaps, this is just a common observation if you're an NT observing another NT? My initial thought was that the data storage feature was Si). I never knew MBTI existed then, but I was glad and intrigued somebody else seemed to think the "same way" as myself. I realize this stuff is superficial, and it really comes down to how you identify with your cognitive skeleton (i.e. dom/aux/tert/inf/opp/witch/trickster/demon). I wouldn't mind going into that, but it's early in the morning and I need to shutdown heh.

    The amount you write suggests INTP.

    Hello, new INTP

    Welcome back! You sound pretty INTP, likely a 5.
