Hmm... I've been typed as a 6 in the past, so I was curious to see if you guys came to similar conclusions and it's reasoning.
I have reached a conclusion that I am a type 1, but perhaps I misinterpreted my thought process and what it really means to be type 1.
1. What drives you in life? What do you look for?
I'm looking for my place in society to spread the quality of work with others for their betterment. To contribute to something I believe in.
2. What do you hope to accomplish in your life?
I hope to make everyone better for what I'm able to contribute. In the end I will be able to tell myself that I was part of the solution of humanities existence than the problem.
3. What do you hope to avoid doing or being? What values are important to you?
I don't want to be someone who lacks care for others in their actions because intent is what really matters. If you have poor intent and conduct yourself that way for a long enough period of time society removes you because you're a danger and need to be taught a lesson. Most often society has great common sense and is close enough to a correct solution to live with.
I don't want to be someone who believes whatever someone else tells them. I've tried to become a more practical, grounded, and have a more can-do attitude so I've taken on a more realistic and discerning approach to matters to act more appropriately. For this reason I am rebellious to others' words because I have worked the logic and I've come to a point in which I trust my conclusion. If you know something is right then don't be timid about fighting for it.
To be uncontrolled and brash is the worst kind of person.
I admit when I am hurt I will have this feeling driven reaction but it is not capable of being stopped because I've lost concern for the opposition, then when I'm given time to understand where I over compensated I come to terms with it and right my wrongs. For this reason objectivity is clung to and I often am told that I'm insensitive. I guess the thing to take away from this message is that I hold myself and others responsible. When this process doesn't go smoothly I become forceful, though I try to keep a cool demeanor to keep cooperation amongst parties.
4. What are your biggest fears (not including phobias)? Why?
I have a fear of not being capable of making the impact in which I desire. Not being prepared enough to perform at the level in which I aspire. To let down others because I have not served them well enough. To not be appreciated for all that I can offer.
To not be someone who can face reality.
To not be able to see the big picture and see how small I am within it. To act selfishly because I must fulfill my needs.
To be too timid to not fight people when the time comes to teach others a lesson, and allow them to get away with whatever they please.
5. How do you want others to see you? How do you see yourself?
I see myself as someone who carries there own sense of right and wrong. I am not holy. I've divorced Christianity become I've learned others' standards are not to be my standards, and I can't live with the idea of condemnation for things I cannot stop. I stopped apologizing to god for unchangeable occurences, and am not of the belief that the world can work in such a way of apologizing and being granted forgiveness when you're going to repeat the mistake tomorrow. I serve my own ideology and understanding of how the world works.
EDIT: Others see me as a constant worker and have no idea why I do what I do. END EDIT
6. What makes you feel your best? What makes you feel your worst?
I love a hard days work when everything goes just right. When you don't create problems for yourself, and people don't expect you to work at a higher level than what your complete effort is able to create. When my bosses at work ask me to pick up extra responsibility though I'm already carrying too heavy of a work load I am known to take it very personally and become aggressive. I'm not fired because they can see how much I change the place and the impact my efforts make.
7. Describe how you experience each of:
When things go wrong I review the past and try to work out solutions, and this applied to my shortcomings, others shortcomings, others' wrongdoings, and my own lack of control.
I apologize and find a way to not create this feeling. If I can't avoid such feelings through minor changes I make larger changes, like how I broke off from religion.
I feel it's like there is always a mechanism inside of me pulsating creating a will for change or something that I cannot control. My mind jumps from issue to issue often because they're present in my life and I need to find conclusion. That is part of why I am so active in the forums. I need to find answers.
8. Describe how you respond to each of:
I have a lot of it. I work harder and it gets relieved through achievement.
b) unexpected change;
I deal with it as it comes. I can be rather inflexible, so I gain anxiety from the need to adjust. Everything is a system though, so it's just a matter of setting guidelines for yourself to act accordingly to.
I hate it, but I do it to make myself more comfortable with the issue taken.
9. Describe your orientation to, and how do you respond to these? :
They are someone I put up with given they don't always act favorable to what I believe. I also use authority to enforce my will and teach lessons.
It's there and a measure of trust, ability, and competency we place on an individual. I consider people just to be playing a role though. Power means little to my desires.
10. What is your overall outlook on life and humanity?
People in general are self-serving, and it takes a noble person to look past their needs and see the big picture of how things should work to benefit all of humanity. This is reason I wish I could agree with communism. Since people are less than ideal we created capitalism so that people may only think about themselves and we tweak it to make up for their narrow views.
11. Discuss an event that has impacted your life significantly; more importantly, how you responded to it.
I'll copy and paste this from another thread:
12. Comment on your relationship with trust.
My childhood experience had an insecure CP6 cousin. He wasn't very nice to others, and was never parented well so he makes for a bad example of this type in general. He was brash and aggressive you could explain him as having an 8 in his tritype in his will to fight for his own well being, but he was a needy coward deep down. While growing up I was still uncertain of my ideology and how I should interact with the world. As I matured I grew more confrontational and strained by resentment but I never became violent because I have something against lowering myself to his uncontrolled ways. The more coldly logical and primal side of my wishes I did something horrible to him, which would either scar him for the rest of his life or end his life for the wrongdoings. The other side tries to have faith in my decision not have taught him a lesson of such magnitude and let him learn on his own, and the family around him to put up with his ways. He got something up his ass a few Christmases ago during small talk and started conflict with me and we got into a skirmish. I told his mother he was a piece of trash. He continues to show his classlessness when given the chance by not going to relative's funerals or family gatherings.
Given proper understanding I trust myself very much. I generally trust others to do what I think they should do in situations. I try not to rely on trusting people I don't know though.
13. List some of the traits you: a) like about yourself;
I like how cautious I am, yet it creates problems sometimes, but it's for the best.
b) dislike most about yourself.
How I can't always understand things well enough to act most appropriately in all situations. I'm always trying to become a little more focused and experienced to read things better.
14. What do you see or notice in others that most people don't?
Uncertain. People think changes take place without changing dynamics of other processes taking place, and are never aware of how complicated things actually are. Even in personality typing. People think that another typology is a good thing, but it just makes the overall view of what creates the way you act less transparent. What I see in the world is that every action has a vast reaction, and you must control it for everything to go well.
Seeing the truth and accepting it is something I really admire. To face reality with your ego removed is always a desire. Most people can't stomach such things.
15. If a stranger insults you, how do you respond/feel?
If he speaks the truth I agree with him. If not I discard him action as being based upon a misinterpretation.
What if they compliment you?
I thank them for noticing.
Follow up questions are appreciated, and each conclusion should be given at least a brief explanation given I have a fair understanding of each type.
@Swordsman of Mana
shown care for this subject in his wing debates.
are of the people I am most interested in getting feedback from regarding how my typing, and similarities regarding their experience, and those of the same type. I'm concerned with why I am different than other people, and why this is the case.
EDIT: Any insights to Socionic typing Cyamitide? I'm still trying to grasp the theory to understand its conclusions and be certain of a type.
