Personality Types

I am an ISFP: "ISFP (Introverted feeling with sensing): They are shy and retiring, are not talkative, but like sensuous action. They like painting, drawing, sculpting, composing, dancing -- the arts generally -- and they like nature. They are not big on commitment."

I believe this describes me very well. In real life (i.e. offline), I am not a big talker, although I tend to open up more towards people I have clicked with. However, I find it quite easy to express myself online (perhaps too easy). I also enjoy the arts immensely, as well as nature. To be more specific, I am an animal lover, even though I'm not a vegetarian. I don't know if I like commitment or not. I suppose it depends on who or what I'm committing to.

What is your type? http://www.humanmetrics.com/cgi-win/JTypes2.asp

This site has good and simple descriptions of the various personality types. Look towards the bottom. Although, the entire page is an excellent read, if you ask me. http://webspace.ship.edu/cgboer/jung.html

I am an INFP type. Introverted Intuitive Feeling Perceiving.

Siegfried said...

I am a Healer. According to Keirsey.

Sophia said...

Are you cool or reserved? I wonder if this is the same thing as indifference?

Siegfried said...

I am cool, reserved, and indifferent. It depends on the situation.

Siegfried said...

And/or.

Sophia said...

Does this also mean you are emotionally unavailable?

Siegfried said...

I can be very emotional. Especially when I'm in love. But I found out it's not the right thing to be. Especially falling in love too easily and too early. And revealing your feelings right away. It communicates weakness and insecurity. Not very manly for men. And not very prudent for women. Therefore not very attractive.

Siegfried said...

What to do. Be needy but don't show it. People can read minds.

Sophia said...

I thought you said mind-reading was only imagination?

What is this macho stuff? Isn't machismo out of style? A man can be in touch with his feminine side and show emotions without giving up his strength.

Siegfried said...

How to keep your slip from showing. Be mysterious.

Sophia said...

In fact, a man who is confident with his masculinity has no fear of showing emotions from his feminine self.

Siegfried said...

Real women don't like feminine men. And being effeminate is bad taste.
It's also not about being macho either. Or being a jerk or a prick. It's about being subtle.
Of course, people can read minds. Not the content. Because content is superficial. Knowledge and intellect dexterity is not everything.

Siegfried said...

I have one standard for men and women. Just an idea.

Sophia said...

Why do you think that only effeminate males show emotion? Masculine men can be just as in touch with their feminine side as feminine women can be in touch with their masculine side.

Do you think withholding emotions makes a man more mysterious?

When you're deeply in love with a woman, do you never surrender your feelings?

Siegfried said...

Power is perhaps the strongest aphrodisiac. When it comes to making others fall in love with you.

Siegfried said...

I sometimes make exception to any rule. More often than seldom.

Sophia said...

When I was dating men, I did find myself more attracted to the powerful males. Why is this?

It must be some survival tactic. Cave women were taken care of and protected by powerful cave men.

But some women these days like weaker men.

Siegfried said...

Women can be very dominant too. It's not that men should be dominant always. And that women should always be submissive.

Siegfried said...

Men and women should try to be equal. And slightly unequal. It depends.

Sophia said...

Unless a woman tries testing her dominance with a naturally dominant male, only to find out that it's best she doesn't test him.

Sophia said...

If they are not equal, they should complement each other, to create a balance.

Siegfried said...

Well, balance means symmetry or equality.

Sophia said...

Tell me about your current girlfriend.

Siegfried said...

She's my Baby, she's my Pet.
I have no idea how we met.
It must have been on Internet.

Sophia said...

When did you meet?

Siegfried said...

Actually she is very intelligent and has many a talent. She just got a contract to write a regular column and to make illustrations. She's very childlike. She still is.
And she is fickle. What do you expect?

Siegfried said...

Not long ago. She fell in love with my one-liners.

Sophia said...

I like your one-liners, too.

Siegfried said...

I just wanted to protect her...

Sophia said...

What did you want to protect her from?

Siegfried said...

From walking thru the lonely path that leads nowhere. Where there are lots of dangers and ...

Sophia said...

and?

Siegfried said...

you know what else ...

Sophia said...

Perhaps....

Siegfried said...

She is my Disciple. And my Teacher.

Sophia said...

What does she teach you?

Siegfried said...

None of your little business. Life and Love. And you know what else.

Sophia said...

Do you love her?

Siegfried said...

Of course I do. How can I resist her. She's my Child.

Sophia said...

Are you her father figure?

Siegfried said...

I'm her Teacher. And she doesn't know it.

Sophia said...

Maybe she does know it.

And you teach her, and protect her, even from herself?

Siegfried said...

I found her and she wanted my protection. And I needed hers.

Sophia said...

What does she protect you from?

Loneliness?

Siegfried said...

Good questions!
End of story. Babye.

Sophia said...

Would you rather we change the subject?
