    Honestly, I can relate a lot to what @Anaximander is saying re: typing being murky if other factors are present. This year (co-inciding with my time on the forum) has been the largest year of transition in life circumstances I have ever had. I have been upending long-held habits and beliefs, changing careers, implementing more healthy boundaries and struggling with the processing of grief and what’s involved in moving on. Lots has been positive but I’ve also made mistakes and this year has felt like a LOT of action/reflection/change/practical implementation.

    So, that may play a part in things.


    I feel the most kinship (at this point in time) with: ISFJ, ISFP, or INFP.


    I try to observe other people and take note of their type if I relate to them.

    - I will probably forget people… but the member’s who most provoke the feeling of “wow, my brain would have thought or written EXACTLY like that or I would have done what they are describing” are: @Enthusiastic_Dreamer, @Eskimo2, @magpie, @Starry (though my brain is less interesting in manifestation), @Giggly, @Amargith, @prplchknz, @Coriolis, @miss fortune, @Qlip, @Xann and @Kas.


    - STP’s like @Poki, @MDP2525 and @Floki give me a different feeling. I feel like I ‘recognize’ their thinking and it is familiar & welcome. But, I see clearly how we walked different paths to get there. Same with NTP's like @Obfuscate or @JAVO.


    - With NFJ's or NTJ's like @fidelia, @Z Buck McFate, @Urarienev, @Forever, @geedoenfj, @theforsaken... I get a feeling of kinship from their actions and expressions too but it is different. I feel like I am snorkelling and I can see them scuba diving below me. We are enjoying the same environment and can wave to each other but are navigating it differently.


    I also relate A LOT to @Spanky Mcfly is some ways. Even though we may seem different from a superficial perspective, I think we share a lot of the same ways of arriving at things that are in the existential realm.


    Not sure if that offers insight or just confuses things?
    I think your type is difficult to pin down because you've developed the ability to use a lot of cognitive functions.

    What's most apparent to me from your above post is how you are able to relate to many different types of people. You have something really special that draws people to you. Even when you're not able to truly relate to someone else, you can respect and make room for their perspective.

    I don't know if it makes sense to reduce that down to a cognitive function. Whatever it is, it's special.

    Not to claim that I'm special or anything but this just reminded of a previous thought I had about myself. I probably send mixed feelings especially over J/P.
    I'm pretty sure that I am naturally "J" -when people do insist that I organize, I am quite good at it and things tend to work better for me when I do- but I would also say that being adaptable is one of my greatest strengths, mainly because it's been so necessary-and continues to be a great help- for me to get by.

    I'm sure this sort of thing happens a lot.

    Me an ISFJ? :p I'd be an incredibly different SJ due to strong disagreements I have had in the past with Si types. They see so differently than me. It's like they're content in the situation where everything is the same even if it's shitty. It makes no sense to me. (I perceive it to be terrible but to them, consistency > possibilities)

    I was someone who'd always switch up everything when I teach something even to my own detriment. If anything I'm much more likely to be Ne than Si. I also make tons of mistakes due to lack of preparedness. Si types tend to be defensive pessimistic and I'm like the opposite when I tackle a new situation overly optimistic coming out badly burned.

    I'm really negative with the past.
    haha I was just messin with ya

    But man, how I DO appreciate a break from my own head at times. I don't think of all these possible answers to a situation as you described, but I do often ruminate on rather vague things in life like personal goals, where I see myself, what I ultimately want. The problem with that is, I never know for sure. I am usually within range of the target, but I can never be absolutely sure what my path is or what I truly want in life. Those sorts of thoughts can bog me down and pull me from the moment no matter how fantastic it may be. I'm still lookin out for my ESFP bestie

    Haha, I'm the opposite. I really like the way socionics defines Fe and detest the way it describes Si. /unrelated

    What combination of type and mental illness do I vibe?

    SFx and Schizotypal?

    I believe my mental problems impair my social abilities to the point that I take the NT label as an easier fit, but I lack in logical and analytical abilities, making it an unhealthy form of compensation.

    So I compensate for one weakness (which should be a strength, barring mental illness) with another weakness.

    Mentally ill people cannot be confidently typed. If you have phases of good mental health you should type based on that as that is your natural self.

    Where is @Starry? This thread sees a burst in activity every so often and her input is always nice to see in the mix.
