    Questions, Questions, and More Questions!

    I'm curious, ISFPs...

    1. Are you comfortable when someone you're getting to know asks you questions to get to know you?

    2. Do you tend to ask other people questions?

    3. What would make you not ask someone questions about themself or their life? (for example, respect for their privacy and not wanting to probe, preference to get to know someone in a more natural way, treating others the way you'd want to be treated since you hate being asked questions, lack of interest in them, etc.)

    4. If it's not listed on your profile, what is your enneagram tritype?

    Thanks for your help!! :)

    1. Are you comfortable when someone you're getting to know asks you questions to get to know you?

    In most cases, yes. A lot of people ask me questions, especially my teachers, classmates, or other students who find me interesting. I actually like being asked questions because I like talking about myself, and knowing that people are actually trying to get to know me rather than just by their first impressions or false judgement.

    Also, I also oddly get a lot of questions from my teachers and co-workers about my heritage which is funny because I'm white. It's like the question of the day.

    2. Do you tend to ask other people questions?

    Yes! I'm interested in finding details about other people and seeing how it all relates to them in daily life. Such as their career choices, interests, and hobbies. I always like to ask "Why?" and what influences them.


    3. What would make you not ask someone questions about themself or their life? (for example, respect for their privacy and not wanting to probe, preference to get to know someone in a more natural way, treating others the way you'd want to be treated since you hate being asked questions, lack of interest in them, etc.)

    I'm usually much more interested in my professors or adults rather than my peers. I like asking them questions about life and what they would've done differently, or why they wanted to become a Biology teacher or why a teacher at all. I sometimes feel hesitant because I don't want to invade their privacy.
    With anyone else, I'll still hold a barrier in which I'll be sure not to cross because I don't want others to feel uncomfortable. I wouldn't ask them what their social security number is or what their parents do for a living.

    4. If it's not listed on your profile, what is your enneagram tritype?

    5w4-9w1-4w5 sp/sx. Basically the most "in-your-head" tritype ever.

    1. Are you comfortable when someone you're getting to know asks you questions to get to know you?
    Yes! but only if I'm interested in getting to know them and am also asking them questions - otherwise, it becomes an interrogation and I don't like that feeling.

    2. Do you tend to ask other people question
    If i'm interested in them, I ask a lot. I only ask a little bit if it's out of obligation or trying to make the mood.

    3. What would make you
    not ask someone questions about themself or their life? (for example, respect for their privacy and not wanting to probe, preference to get to know someone in a more natural way, treating others the way you'd want to be treated since you hate being asked questions, lack of interest in them, etc.) Lack of interest mostly, though at first i will try to ask out of obligation. I quickly tire of that and start pretending to not be around, or having plans to leave soon. If i feel enough rapport has been established, I don't mind asking the deeper questions I want to know, but do respect if they don't want to talk about it. I really hate the whole 'i'm not telling you but i want you to keep asking me until i concede' behaviour though. Even if I sometimes am like that too. I guess it's because I don't know if they're doing that or not (in the people who are more subtle about it, anyway).

    1. Are you comfortable when someone you're getting to know asks you questions to get to know you?

    Yes, that is fine. I am a story teller so the answers may take a while. Also, I get easily distracted so the answers may never come but you'll find out something totally different and unexpected about me.

    2. Do you tend to ask other people questions?

    Of course. I was trained as a journalist so interviewing people is an occupational hazard, even though I haven't had a journalism job in a long time. I am fascinated by other people and by their stories so I do ask a lot of questions.

    3. What would make you not ask someone questions about themself or their life? (for example, respect for their privacy and not wanting to probe, preference to get to know someone in a more natural way, treating others the way you'd want to be treated since you hate being asked questions, lack of interest in them, etc.)

    If I sense that the other person doesn't want to answer, I will stop. Fortunately, that doesn't happen too much. People like to talk about themselves, and I find most people to be totally fascinating. Eventually, the conversation will go off on a tangent, which is OK, too.

    4. If it's not listed on your profile, what is your enneagram tritype?

    I believe that it is 7w6, 4w5, 9w1. I am a prima donna who wants to have fun in a pleasant, conflict-free way.

    Thanks for your help!! :)\

    You're welcome.

    1. Are you comfortable when someone you're getting to know asks you questions to get to know you?
    Hmm Yeah I'm open about things with people like my hobbies, what school I went to, if I have any brothers or sisters. Normally people ask how was my weekend and about looking for jobs. I'm not a open book so people ask questions and I reply back.

    2. Do you tend to ask other people questions?

    Yeah I ask what they do, they hobbies, school they went to, why they doing a particular thing, how they day has been, how have they been.

    3. What would make you not ask someone questions about themself or their life? (for example, respect for their privacy and not wanting to probe, preference to get to know someone in a more natural way, treating others the way you'd want to be treated since you hate being asked questions, lack of interest in them, etc.)

    Yeah I hate a few questions where it is very personal. Sometimes I don't want to say much. Yeah I respect other people privacy I don't think I'm a nosy person but I hate people who want to know little things about me when I'm not doing the same. In conversations I seem reserved I listen to others rather than talking I'm sometimes self-conscious. I think sometimes I should learn to join in a topic if it is something that interests me.

    4. If it's not listed on your profile, what is your enneagram tritype?
    I think I'm 9w1, 6w5, 4w5 or 6w5, 9w1, 4w5

    1. Bahaha. I'm self-centered and thus I enjoy it very much when I have to speak about myself. And it's only logical for someone who wants to know someone to ask that someone questions about that someone, right? It's the honest way to do it. But how much do I enjoy it? When I see a news team with a camera and reporter I actively seek them out and get exhilarated at the chance to give my opinion on a matter.

    2. Small talk to pass the time sometimes. But yes, I like to interrogate people to get to know something about them. I know I'm an extroverted sensor now seeing as how I ask questions based on a person's appearance (i.e. ask a female coworker where they got their colourful jacket etc.). This sounds stereotypical but I find many females like to talk about themselves ;)

    3. Just an overall sense of how the person is. If they look and sound disinterested, there's no point asking. If they look angry, I probably will leave them alone. Or if I'm in a bad mood and want little social contact I'd try to avoid speaking much less asking people questions.

    1. Are you comfortable when someone you're getting to know asks you questions to get to know you?

    Yes, if they make it too obviously, asking questions one after another, like you`re in an interview.

    2. Do you tend to ask other people questions?

    Yes.

    3. What would make you not ask someone questions about themself or their life? (for example, respect for their privacy and not wanting to probe, preference to get to know someone in a more natural way, treating others the way you'd want to be treated since you hate being asked questions, lack of interest in them, etc.)

    When I`m deeply annoyed by them.

    "1. Are you comfortable when someone you're getting to know asks you questions to get to know you?"

    ~Completely depends on what their motivations for asking are. Overall very tedious to me, way too Fe IMO. Boring as hell. Most people want to know so they can say "Oh, that's different." or "I'm surprised you'd like that." or "Do you like this artist? I love this artist!" That kind of talking makes me gag, utterly repulsive.


    "2. Do you tend to ask other people questions?"

    ~I wouldn't call it a tendency: I do it sometimes, usually just to make people feel interesting and having a place and all happy, like someone cares. I do it to let them know I care, not because I actually care about the subject matter usually. Know what I mean? BUT, I'd rather choose observing someone for a day, spending time with them, accomplishing anything with them over some dull, awkward conversation. Being together tells me 10x more than talking about movies and books and crap that people like blabbling about. I would say I am far more prone to ask lots of questions of someone I already know than someone I don't know. Because they set me to thinking. I can't think about something or someone I don't know. If I don't know them, how can I know what I need to ask them?


    "3. What would make you not ask someone questions about themself or their life? (for example, respect for their privacy and not wanting to probe, preference to get to know someone in a more natural way, treating others the way you'd want to be treated since you hate being asked questions, lack of interest in them, etc.)"

    ~I don't trust words. Words can mean anything. Words, unless carefully chosen (which takes A LOT of time) may be true one day and not true the next. I might believe words one day and not believe them the next, based on what I see is actually going on. Words should be used as tools for other projects, they are not a worthy project in and of themselves. I am ALWAYS interested in other people; the problem is I am not usually interested in what they are interested in. See the difference? I want to know YOU, not what you think or how you think. I want your essence, not your forms; your spirit not your smiles. What I want from you can't be described: that's why I want to know it, experience it, not dissect it amd label it. I would rather watch you, and if something surfaces which requires attention, then I am right there. But I don't probe under that surface, generally, especially not at first. What people can't help showing is far more valuable to me than what they are trying to show. What they are trying to show is usually a distraction, although, I suppose it can be a telling one, and I use it in that sense, although it holds no fascination for me intrinsically.

    1. Usually, yes.

    2. Yeah.

    3. Respect for their privacy, not wanting to probe, not interested in whatever subject they're talking about.

    4. I dunno. The numbers 2, 9, and 4 come to mind. I could be wrong with one of those numbers though.

    1. Are you comfortable when someone you're getting to know asks you questions to get to know you?
    It all depends on situations and the type of questions. But yes, mostly, probably 8 out of 10 questions in the situation you describe. I think I will be more than happy if the person whom I'm trying to know is interested in me and asks my questions.

    2. Do you tend to ask other people questions?
    No, but I do it sometimes, still.
    I feel more and more comfortable asking question as I know the person more and more. I like to hear people's story and the conversations make me feel being in the present and the real world, which is good.

    3. What would make you not ask someone questions about themself or their life?
    I can come up with a hundred of reason for not wanting to ask someone questions about himself, because I’m shy and I just make up excuses. I can still give a list:
    -Shy
    -Tend to observe and listen to how they talk to me or others
    -Can't come up with a nice way to ask
    -Not the right time to ask
    -Not sure if they will be annoyed
    -Not sure if they find me boring/ rude
    -Respect for their privacy
    -Not wanting to probe
    -Not sure if they will be embarrassed by the questions I want to ask
    -Prefer to get to know them more before asking
    -Awkward at asking personal questions
    -Asking questions can mean starting an endless talk, which is a thing that I'm not good at
    -etc, etc.
    -Of course I don't even think of asking them questions if I'm not interested in them. Why would I?

    4. If it's not listed on your profile, what is your enneagram tritype?
    594 (In my signature but I just answer it anyway)
