1) Context:
a) What is your age range and general location (Country so that cultural values can be taken into account)? Do you have any impairments that may affect the way that you answer this questionnaire? Any religious or political beliefs (or anything else along those lines) that also might have an effect?
I am a 15 year-old American female. I have some anxiety and obsessive-compulsive tendencies.My idealism makes me want to correct errors in the American justice system by using the law and by being objective. However, I am also pragmatic in that I am more focused on my own ambitions and achievement; I don’t plan on pursuing this cause as my life goal.
b) Which types are you currently considering? Why are you considering them and why haven’t you decided on one?
I am considering ISTJ, ESTJ, ENTJ, and INFJ for MBTI. I know that the TJ types that I am considering are very different from INFJ. I am an ambivert. The argument for ISTJ/ESTJ is that I focus on logic and effectiveness when making decisions, I am fairly detail-oriented, and I can be overly critical. I hate procrastination and I love to get things done. I make decisions based on effectiveness and I love being productive. The argument for ESTJ/ENTJ is that I love getting things done, I love leading people, I need to be in control, I am an overachiever, and I become extremely emotional in “grip stress.” I try to remain objective. I am strategic, creative, can see the bigger picture, and I am constantly thinking about the future (argument for ENTJ). I will be single-minded when achieving goal(s) (argument for ENTJ). While efficiency is important to me, my perfectionism, I believe that feelings are messy even though I can be emotional at times. I channel my negative emotions (sadness, stress, anxiety) into doing something (work, extracurriculars, obsessively checking and rearranging). However, there is a point where my emotions explode (possible Fi/Fe grip stress reaction). But I don’t trust feelings and I try to view them through a logical, factual lens. The reason why I think that there is a small chance that I may be an INFJ is because I can be emotional at times (mainly in stress due to perfectionism), I am very creative, I am strategic, I am analytical, and I am idealistic. INFJ is definitely the least likely because I do not have their “future predicting” abilities, I cannot read people very well, I am not very empathetic, I am not very altruistic, I can be overly critical, and I make decisions based on effectiveness. I also don’t go to Se in stress and I am far more in touch with my own emotions than those of others. I seek effectiveness more than social harmony.
As for the enneagram, I am in between enneagram 1 and enneagram 3. I am obsessed with achievement and getting things done (enneagram 3). I disconnect with feelings to get things done unless they are very strong. I am a bit of a workaholic and I am in many clubs at school. I am very focused on my grades. (Argument for enneagram 3)
Like enneagram 1, I have idealistic tendencies. I believe that unfairness can be corrected with objectivity. But this is not my primary purpose. I am a huge perfectionist, I value logic over emotion, and I can be overly critical. Unlike the enneagram 3 archetype, I do not have their “image focus.”
As for socionics, I think I am either LSI, LII, LIE, LSE, or SLI. Most likely LIE, LII, or LSE.

2) What do you deem as your purpose in life?
My purpose in life is to achieve great things. My sense of self is primarily defined by achievements, what I lack, and what I have. I want to lead, to strategize, and to achieve. I also love analyzing problems and providing logical solutions. Analysis comes naturally to me.
3) Of the seven deadly sins, which one(s) do you relate to the most and the least and why?
Although I relate a lot with greed and envy, I will go with greed. I always want to achieve more and I am a control freak. This causes me to work harder and be in a lot of extracurriculars.
I can relate the least to lust because my love life is not that important to me. Achievement is the most important thing.

4) Analyzing your relationships with others, briefly describe:
a) The type of people you are drawn to
I am drawn to intelligent and friendly people. I seek out those that have similar interests and/or experiences to me.
b) The type of people who are drawn to you
People that have similar interests and experiences to me. Some of my strongest social connections were through Model UN and other clubs at my school.
c) The type of people you are repulsed by
I am repulsed by lazy people that are overly spontaneous. I also dislike those that knowingly and willingly break the rules.

5)What are the traits in others that you admire but you cannot emulate yourself? Elaborate.
Others tend to “fit in” better. They are also more spontaneous than rigid. Even though I have good social skills now, I struggled with them when I was younger. I do not fit in because I am more task-oriented than relationship-oriented and I have always had different interests than most people. I also wish I was more spontaneous because it is a “likeable” trait.
6) Describe your relationship with the following:
a) Anger
I do not get angry easily. It is very rare that I will become visibly angry.

b) Shame
I feel shame when I become emotional (I dislike emotions), when I do not live up to my expectations, and when I feel like I am not achieving enough. I am a huge perfectionist that hates receiving bad grades. My relationship with criticism is mixed. Sometimes I perceive it as useful, and sometimes it makes me disappointed in myself.
c) Fear

d) Love/passion
I feel passionate towards what I do. I can be single-minded in whatever I plan on achieving and I will enthusiastically work towards it. I am also passionate towards my interests.

e) Conflict
I have a realistic view on conflict. I am not particularly confrontational but I will do it if I need to. I believe that it happens every now and then and I don’t try to seek social harmony. I don’t like emotional conflicts; issues can be sorted out rationally. I love debating issues rationally and I am competitive. Intellectual debate is a fun thing for me.

7) What are some of the themes that have played a prominent role in your life (ie. A struggle you’ve been unable to conquer, ect)?
The themes of my life are: the desire for knowledge, the desire to achieve things, productivity, and perfectionism.

8) Answer only one of the following:

b)[Under college aged] What do you plan on studying/working as in the future? How did you go about deciding this? If this is not your ideal area of pursuit, what would be?
I plan on studying economics in the future, and I might go to law school. If I go to law school, I plan on becoming a corporate lawyer or an intellectual property lawyer. I have always been interested in law, politics, and government. I love debating and researching. I went about deciding this path because I find economics to be interesting and useful. Economics is also intertwined with politics. Although this is very close to my ideal pursuit, it is not. I want to study international relations because I am interested in international politics. I am in Model UN and I find that to be very interesting.

9) When meeting a new person, what do you tend to focus on?
I tend to focus on a new person’s interests and friendliness. I tend to introduce myself to new people and I ask questions to know about their interests.
10) How do you feel about humanity as a whole? What do you feel are some of the biggest problems the human race faces and why?
Although humanity has improved due to advancements in technology, medicine, globalization, and reforms, it is still unjust. Injustice is the biggest problem that the human race faces. The objective applications of just laws is what is needed in the world.

11) What are some of your hobbies and interests?
My hobbies and interests are economics, law, politics, history, Model UN, Amnesty International Club (this is a thing at my school), creative writing, and Taekwondo. I like debating as well.
13) How do you usually “hang out” with your friend(s)? When answering, think about what activities you tend to choose, whether you hang out with one person at once or many, whether or not you initiate the interaction.
I hang out with my friends at school and in extracurriculars. My friends and I tend to talk and do things in extracurriculars. I will usually talk to one or a few people and I will usually initiate the conversation. I do not schedule many interactions outside of school & extracurriculars, however.

14) What is more important, actions or words? Why?
Actions are more important than words because words are meaningless unless they are put into action. Words can create meaningful plans, promises, and analyses, but plans must be enacted. Promises that are not implemented are meaningless.

15) Oh dear, you’ve been cursed by a witch! It’s ok though, you get a choice on which curse you will receive. Will you choose….
a) To never be able to experience the sensation of taste
b) To be immortal
c) To lose your memories
d) To be poor for the rest of your life
e) Or to never experience passion
Elaborate on why!
I would choose to be immortal. I love knowledge and success; therefore, I would not choose c) and d). Immortality means that you can explore many things and that you can accomplish many things. Passion & ambition drives me to achieve goals. I love food.
16) What do you hope to avoid being? If it helps, describe a person who embodies what you avoid/you as a villain, ect.
I avoid being lazy, a procrastinator, and being seen as a failure. I don’t want to be inefficient, imperfect, and unplanned. I don’t want to be driven by emotions, illogical, and subjective.

17) How do you relate to obsession? Do you tend to "merge" with others or your interests? How do you feel about the idea of doing this?
I can become very obsessive about my interests and ambitions. On one hand, it is a good thing because it helps me achieve my goals and gain knowledge. On the other hand, it makes me obsessively check and organize things at times. I wish I was less obsessive.
18) Organized or messy? Plans and blueprints or impulse and surprises? What are your preferences and tendencies?
I am definitely organized. I love planning and I hate surprises. Unexpected changes can freak me out. Although I will experiment and change things, I also like predictability. I make to-do lists almost every day and I aim to complete as much of it as I can in one day. I am a perfectionist as well. I do not stick to a self-imposed schedule often, but the tasks that I need to complete control my day. I can be obsessive in checking things and organizing at times.

19) How do you subjectively view comfort and how do you create comfort in your life and surroundings?
I seek comfort by having routine and having organized surroundings. Although I love checking things off of my to-do list, I also like watching TV as well. I like comfort, but I don’t think that I should get “too comfortable” and stagnate.

hi, for your socionics type I think you'd be in an Se/Ni valuing quadra, according to your emphasis on success and achievement. Even though LSEs are focused on working and correctness in objective matters, they aren't as ambitious as people in decisive quadras.
I think you could possibly be LSI or LIE, although your general perfectionism and rigidity suggest LSI. LSIs have Ne PoLR and weak Ni, which means that they are easily stressed about how things will turn out, as you say. They are the most oriented to a rigid, predictable, ambitious schedule, and they enjoy control of situations. You also seem to have strong Se, Te, and Ti. You seem like a highly competent and organized person who doesn't like to leave their affairs to anyone else. You also seem invested in political issues and human rights. Typically, members of the Beta quadra are the most heavily involved in fights for justice. Alphas are only intellectually interested, deltas are humansitically interested, and gammas are mostly uninterested.
LSIs are also process >result, which means they typically operate in an orderly, precise manner.
LIEs often procrastinate because they evaluate how long something will take and whether they need to do it right at that moment. They also enjoy taking calculated risks, and as result types, they usually make quick decisions on the fly and tend to operate without a rigid schedule.

also, i think you're an enneagram 3.

I would guess 135 for enneagram, in that order, and probably sp/so.

Nice thread title. Lol What amazing forum member inspired it?

On a serious note, I agree with Luminous with your tritype but I could see 315 as the order possibly too.

You come off as more extroverted to me, I'd say. You seem comfortable initiating things. I see Te dom & probably Fi inferior.

Not sure on Si or Ni, so at the moment I'm inclined to say ExTJ.

Sorry if I haven't responded in a while. Te seems to be the most likely dominant function. I do have a good memory and I am attentive to detail (argument for Si-auxiliary). That being said, I can be quite single-minded and obsessive when it comes to my interests, I daydream quite a lot, and I can ruminate over one idea (argument for Ni-auxiliary). IXTJ might be likely (I do have strong morals, and I have made smaller decisions according to my personal moral code, which could point to tertiary Fi). ISTJs have inferior Ne, which makes them very resistant to change. Although I have struggled to adjust to some major changes (such as the transition from school to summer break), I am quite experimental. ISXJs like to stick to "the tried and true," which does not always hold true for me. I am also not as realistic as ISXJs are purported to be. I can have trouble staying present at times. That being said, I do not overindulge in sensory things in extreme stress, and I do not struggle with details like most INXJs do.

I was unsure about whether I was an enneagram 1 or 3, but now I think that I am a 1w2. Although I am achievement-driven in the way that 3s are, I am not image-focused. I also care more about HOW perfectly something is done than HOW efficiently something is done. I have also been interested in the legal system in a very stereotypically 1-ish way. I briefly thought that my head fix in tritype was 6w5 (I am quite an anxious person and I am reliable), but 5 in tritype makes much more sense. Ever since I was a child, I would always be reading things about a topic that I was obsessed with. I am obsessed with knowledge in the way that a 5 stereotypically is.
