If I wrote a poem or anything lyrical it would be one of two things:

1. A silly story of some kind which I pretty much made up on the spot, or;
2. So profoundly emotional that reads more like a confession than an art piece.

How does it read?
I'm not sure what you mean. Your poems? They seem quite "action packed". I can't imagine an INTP ever acting out a poem as they read it. I think typically INTPs would prefer to put the whole focus into the words, and perhaps into the intonation that the words are being spoken.

I feel similar about a lot of word-based things. For example, movie scripts. I hate bad scripts, and no amount of theatrical acting can change that.

I think I could also be an ESXP stuck in an inferior Ni grip. I'm trying to get off drugs and a lot of my poetry relates to the hopelessness of the situation (which is also could be one reason why it's terrible).
The dichotomy between my body and mind could be Ni/Se.
Also, 7w8 (head and body types).
Se would be the theatrical part and Ne would be imagining the possibilities, bringing mythological elements into the mix and brainstorming ideas.

My INTJ friend thinks I'm an extrovert.
My INTP father has noticed how impulsive I am.
An ENFP friend typed me as an ESTP.
But an ENTP friend typed me as an ENTP and was super clingy about it.
An INFP typed me as an ESFP because I trolled her.
An ESFP typed me as an ENTJ because I tried to confess my feelings for her, but ended up unintentionally sounding arrogant.
My ENTJ boss thinks I'm quiet, theoretically he could assume I'm an INFP.
I get typed constantly as INTX or XSTX from tests though, occasionally as an INFX or ENFX, although it was a lot more frequent when I was more immature.
I don't like to feel negative things and I withdraw if either person feels negatively about something. Unless arguing would provide status.

Ne is a deviation from reality and an aversion to new styles.
No is to focus on one thing. I zone out when writing poems (Ni) and get into a flow. Anything could come out because I'm reaching into my unconscious mind (remember the dichotomy?)
I never acted out poems before that one (Se).
the poem was meant to transport the viewer into a world of fiction (Ne demon), but at the same time was meant to be a bodily sensation (Se hero).
I showed an INFP who thought it was immature (Se blind).
I showed it to an INTP forum who thought it was over-dramatic.
so the question here now is; am I Ti blind or Fi (referring to thoughts and feelings as being myths that I'm stuck in) blind?

Pay the money and get visually typed. It is fun because someone else chooses your type for you instead of leaving everything into your own hands. Then you just have to wait in anticipation for the results like a DNA test.

I used to run into that in my work. I'd prioritize getting a couple of the jobs out of the way before tackling the others. I was comfortable with "leapfrogging" only 2 jobs at a time.

This doesn't greatly annoy me, but it's more of an annoyance than anything else, so:

The fact that any announcement of marriage, childbirth or property purchase on social media is met with 100s of upvotes from people who almost certainly don't give a shit.

The other side of that: People showing off their babies in contexts that have nothing to do with babies. For example, the first 2 minutes of a fitness video: Look at my baby. It's a baby. It looks like a baby and acts like a baby. I made it.

Yeah, any idiot can make a baby, and many of us have. So what?

Ok so here's something that really does annoy me. When I ask for some simple help and people start flooding me with shit I don't want or need..

A case study:

I've started using HelloTalk, a global language learning 'social media' app, to slowly ease myself into the act of socialising with Vietnamese people. For now, all I can do is write Vietnam-related posts in English and see if anyone likes or comments. Today I wrote a post saying that I'm looking for some good Vietnamese radio stations that I can listen to as background noise while working.

Someone has now sent me a direct message, with a barrage of links to various youtube videos and learning websites where I can listen to basic Vietnamese in a simplified or classroom format.

THIS IS NOT WHAT I ASKED FOR.

I want to listen to standard Vietnamese radio, where standard Vietnamese people do standard Vietnamese talking. It cannot be dull, educational or childish, because it's going to be playing while I work. I want cool, vibrant, fun radio shows, easy listening. Y'know, like normal fucking radio.

I am SO annoyed that this person has thrown a load of education media at me. If I wanted that, I would asked for it.

Ha ha. I don't know whether this is related or not.

A boyfriend wanted to see photos of me as a child. I had no photos, so I emailed my ESFJ sister, the keeper of the family photos. Some of them were okay snapshots, while others were really nice professional photos. She sent me two things:

1. The newspaper clipping of our parents' wedding announcement.

2. The worst possible snapshot, showing several children working in a garden. One of them was 8-year-old me, not wearing a shirt. Who wants to show their boyfriend a topless photo of herself as a prepubescent girl?

I wonder if I am experiencing micro-sleep episodes because I end up imagining something in my head and then considerable time passes, like 10 minutes will pass and it will feel like I’ve been thinking for a few seconds. When it is over I actually expect whatever I was imagining to be something like a video on my phone that I was watching but it isn’t that at all.

Well, it appears not because micro sleep is only 30-60 seconds long. Whatever I am doing seems to be some kind trance-like daydreaming that seems so real I can’t even tell it isn’t after I’m done.

By sheer coincidence and bad luck I was unable to perform the firewall change.

But hilariously I was talking to my coworker about video games and Google Stadia for like 2 hours instead.

So I’m going try that out even though the service is supposedly not going well for Google as they are pulling their internal developers out.

Weird thing for the day: I have observed you grow up in this forum. We've both been on it that long.

From the days when you were still a student (I think even while at high school?) to the more advanced studies and now the adult life stuff of the present.

It's interesting because you used to just be that Yoda kid with the general ramblings of an INTP high school student, but now you're talking about work and career stuff. I have observed the whole narrative.
