This is a discussion on type interaction videos within the Myers Briggs Forum forums, part of the Personality Type Forums category; Originally Posted by Coziene I observed a very big difference in expression, but can't adequately explain it yet. I'd be ...
model, is often applied as a dimensional platform that exhibits Time as a 4th dimension and its interaction with the 3-dimensional plane. Imagine your attitude and crisp delivery moulding into your 3-dimensional framework. The model is very consistent, and does not deviate off its course. You can continue talking, delivering what needs to be said as fits your thinking, while Carez almost looks as if she is contemplating life's mysteries in the backdrop of her mind while talking (the projection of voice, the quality of it, etc) and often lets things drop without finalization. I point towards the symbolic representation of the fan behind Carez as an attempt at organizing my perspective: The fan turns slow, stirring up the air as it goes. As the currents move through the air, it touches certain aspects around her, very Ne-like, while your avatar draws in, very Ni-like. What the fan is also a symbolic representation of an INFP's Dominant Fi, as the fan is allowed to operate due to an internal engine (Fi) where the fan stirs up multiple things around it (Ne). How the light flashes on the fan as each individual blade reflects the light above it (almost like the hand of a clock as it ticks to the next point) can be symbolic of the different connections and possibilities that can be made, but all of it narrowing down to one answer.
I can see the profound difference in personality, as Carez is more adrift, dreamy. Small subtle pieces fit in to that puzzle such as the touching of her hair in Video 1 [2:17 - 2:20] and how her head rolls back (a big indicator is the beginning of the second video).
Your eyes Pneumoceptor, in Video 1 [3:15], roll up and side-to-side as you seek precision in your attempt at explaining what is on your mind; you seek to engage the synapses. You have drawn-out pauses as you attempt to internally consider how to deliver, or what to deliver, the next thought.
I found some first signs of Fe and Fi between you two in Video 1 [4:09] discussing biological parents and their MBTI types. Your face Pneumoceptor really took the smile and moulded your entire face to emit the emotions you felt. Carez's emission of emotion primarily had an effect on the lower portion of her face. I've also noticed that you get very focused, as if facially you are expressing "I need more information" [see video 2, 4:00]. Video 2, 4:00 further expands on your Fe and Ti.
I was really interested in how you discussed Ni. When I first discovered MBTI a few months back, and became actively engaged with it, I had the biggest trouble trying to understand Ni because when you attempt to apply it in a practical sense, it does not maintain a physical tangible foundation on which to gain a perspective on. Every other function works in conjunction with one another in regards to explanation (being of an opposite function) yet Ni seems to be the odd one out. The strange thing is, I can see how Ni fits in. If Ne is a supernova, than Ni is a point of matter in space drawing in ideas. I've just generally decided that Ni as a function was an attempt at putting the whole MBTI into a cohesive structure, and when laying out the plan Ni was an oddity that could not be adequately explained. I've either concluded that I'm not Ni dominant, or that I'm so Ni dominant that I don't even realize when I use it, or it simply operates in a manner that I haven't grasped yet. Whatever the case I'm classified INTJ because it was what I always tested, and in learning the functions it was one of the closest matches I could find, and seeking closure I just settled on it.
In the first video, I found the concepts you two discussed about each other interesting. It made me sit back and think, because I've always attempted tackling the MBTI in an overarching sense. I'm satisfied with a couple practical examples where it can be applied, but I don't need to know each precisely as of now. Even my own internal world is often generalized, and I only occasionally go within to sort out and structure what needs to be structured. Ni and Te are often very good at maintaing structure, but Fi is a pest that seeks to cause me issues. My idea of "structuring" Fi is to tell it to stay Tertiary and let Ni and Te do the work; basically Fi is boxed up.
In the external world I need to structure thoughts, observations, and more. Within the last year I've taken to writing a journal about my philisophical observations, my ideological viewpoints, certain connections I've made, etc. I even write lengthy papers for fun when I have an insight. Nothing is more enjoyable then putting down my thoughts, and finalizing it. I think the only thing I don't externally structure is my room and desk (which are usually messy). I also organize my calendar very methodically, and maintain lists.
I find the whole concept of this video very interesting, as it establishes many different parameters encircling both INFP and INFJ, and, how you articulated it, "That one letter can make a very big difference."
I think the pitfall that a lot of people fall into (I did on first observation) is that the letters do not accurately convey true parameters of each type. Each type is ruled by the Cognitive Functions which actually establish the ego and the conscious mind. You Pneumoceptor, as INFJ, had focused eyes that were intent on dissecting and getting down to the fundamental level of understanding. Your Fe surfaced on occasion as you grasped at Carez's emotional state; it had a very profound elated effect on your psyche.
Carez had a dream-like aura about her, in how she smiled, tossed her head, and in how she vocalized what was on her mind. The Fi was very strong.
I'm going wrap it up here because things are getting redunant and repetitive. I think I have established a reasonable basis of what I observed. Its not perfect, but I'm not striving for absolute perfection, only to share the general idea. If you have any questions let me know.
^^ Do you have the hots for pneumoceptor?
Can you blame him though? She's a hot tamale!
Sureee. I know you intjs are squishy on the inside! He'll analyze her all day long bay bay!
Lol, sorry couldn't help myself. :)
So.. @Marlowe and I chatted for a while the other day. We had some technical difficulties (always with the tech problems, omg) and it's going to take me a bit longer to edit the rest of the footage, but I've got one video up!
