Tbh I'm not too sure of being a 6, I've been feeling frustrated with the system lately and 6 feels like it could be right so I am trying to explore it more by reading this forum and hopefully posting here a bit more. Good thread!Krayfish said:1) What types do you identify as? (Specifically looking for mbti, instinctual variants, maybe tritype just to put things into context)
Other than that, I used to be sure of Fe and I feel Se valuing but been kinda ignoring socionics lately.
For instincts probably sp/sx.
I have a very hard time typing myself and getting typed, considering mainly 2, 3, 6, typed as 9w8 for a while but it feels very wrong now.
In a way I don't really relate at all...used to think I was 5 or 6w5 fixed but if I am core 6 then 6w7 seems more likely...2) To what degree do you relate to the type 7 descriptions?
But at the same time I am quite 7-ish in ways, like I'm literally gluttonous, I love food, I love treating myself, I always need to bring home with me a snack or something to make existence bearable, I've always been like that, especially if I'm doing something fun I get this high and then when it's over I crash, I need a new fix immediately.
I always got bored easily, I was an introvert-ish child and didn't have many friends (and remembering now, I'd often hide from friends I had, like during summer break I'd pretend I wanted to see them but couldn't because I was out of town even though I wasn't, don't think I was fully aware of it back then, think I saw myself as an extrovert even though I was shy) yet I also didn't have many introverted interests, had no clue how to entertain myself especially in the long run, always wanted to go somewhere, watch movies, buy new toys and clothes, thinking and talking about buying new things, I fantasized about all the toys and candy I wanted falling from the sky just for me, and I thought about what a great playground the roof of our building would make.
My father and grandma found me to be exhausting, I kinda tried to make them be everything for me...or like grandma would often tell me "You need to find a boyfriend to fight with" lol because it seemed I guess like I sometimes craved drama yet in school I was very shy and sweet and quiet, no one could imagine me raising my voice.
I'm also...not very serious, but it's hard to explain in what way exactly, it's strange but I'm starting to see most people as so...dramatic in how seriously they take themselves and everything else, hard to explain. I take some things seriously, I don't run away from seriousness at all, but...
Also I love fun I guess but I'm not the type of person to talk a lot about having fun in that sense, but like I love concerts, I love fairs, I love crowds...but I recently told someone in a pm, hate people seeing me have fun, to the point that I go out of my way to not have too much fun visibly in case someone will notice lol, can't imagine going to a concert not alone, I wouldn't feel free, also usually don't say "I had so much fun" and such.
What I don't relate to about 7 is I think anxiety, for me there doesn't seem to be anxiety surrounding 7 issues :/
If anything I relate it a bit more to type 8 lust or something or sp maybe, or Se, I can get really want-y but I'm not...idk, 7 seems to be more idealistic and poetic about some things in a way, more intelectualized id in a way? There's something about it I can't wrap my head around. And I don't fear my inner world or feel the need to keep moving, the 'high' thing I described earlier feels different.
And 6w7 is strange to me because I never related to wanting experiences or to be brave and such yet feeling pulled back by fear or superego or something, I mean...I could make a case for it but it doesn't feel right, I have maybe a similar thing but it feels like the individual pieces look misleadingly similar yet the picture they make is different, if that makes sense. For what it's worth for the longest time I thought that if I do have 7 influence it's more likely to be 7w8 than 6w7 or 7w6. Don't think it has to mean anything in terms of actual type but I do experience my 7 influence as being a bit 8-ish more than 6-ish, like I feel I go from 5/6 to 7/8 rather than being more 6/7.
Think I answered3) How do you think your 7 fix manifests in your life?
