    Well you be you then. Nothing wrong with being weird if it makes you happy and is not harmful. Weird can be cute at times. :)

    Alright. Although my post wasn't so much about the rarity of said personality types (the rare ones only seem to be a few percentage points less frequent anyways). I am more asking if some personality types are less than ideal to score. From looking at the Myer Brigg personality classifications in the past most seemed designed to flatter the person. No matter what you score.

    I'm just curious if one might look up their personality type and find out they're more likely to tend to be dead beats and not allowed within 100 feet in a school yard, lol.

    When I was younger I took apart an alarm clock,

    all the screws, springs, cogs and what not,
    they each had a place and purpose.

    I think we are all similar to those parts, we
    are all needed each in our own way.

    I never got the clock to work again,
    no surprise there.

    To those who do not see we are each special,
    I have the following to consider,

    If and when I/we stand before the heavenly tribunal,
    bearing in mind there will be angels there,
    both procecuting and advocate angels.

    I try to prepare myself beforehand.

    So if I am asked questions like;

    Q-"Why were you not like Moses?"

    A-"When did You speak to me from a burning bush?"

    Q-"Why were you not like Abraham?"

    A-"When did You give me such a generous mind as Abraham?"

    When it comes to the final question,
    I äm not sure how I shall answer.


    Q-"Why were you not you?"

    Might even start biting my nails at that point.

    Haha,

    It nailed my personality yet I'm old so I not likely to change much. Still some things like introversion and extroversion are in the genes so you can find that out and its not going to change Yet some other areas of personality can change wit time. Science is still trying to figure out exactly where nature and nurture meet as regards personality.

    Still, unless you are a old coot like me the only thing most personality tests can do is take a snap shot of you, today. It will probably be good for a couple of years unless something massive happens to you,

    Mine is pretty accurate. The older I get the more I lean in that direction. I look at other tools beyond Myers. They’re good for mirroring and dealing with your shadow side. The tests pinpoint behavioral drawbacks. People focus on the positive. But I see truth on both ends.

    Sometimes I laugh. Yesterday I read my type doesn’t have many hobbies or only does them to advance their career. I couldn’t help but laugh. I monetized mine. Seeing it in print was hilarious.

    No I haven't! I'll need to check out his work. :) Sounds like something that would be right up my alley.

    Hmmm... It sounds like you've given your life a great deal of thought and planning. That's only been more of a recent thing for me. I've heard it said that every 7 years or so, all the cells in your body will have been completely replaced by new cells, and that the old person you once were will have been replaced by someone else. This seems to have been true for me, at least.

    If my life were split into seasons, season one would be one boring and depressing show to watch, hah! :D I learned how to delude myself pretty damn well, and to isolate myself from the rest of the world via escapism. When I look back at the man I was versus the man I am now, it's hard for me to understand just what I was thinking. Back then I was convinced I understood everything, and that it was just my destiny to endure the existence I, and my environment, had set for itself. I was pretty much living in a four walled world.

    Season two would be me finally realizing just how stupid I had been, and finally starting to reach out and start taking risks. Without any real direction, and real understanding of the greater world around me, I was still in an unhealthy place. It didn't help either that my life was intertwined with someone who was also in an unhealthy state. A good 7 years were spent with this person, but I realised that the more I reached out, the more she retreated within herself. She tried to isolate me as well and keep me from wandering too far, so one day I had to just cut ties and go. That was a hard choice to make, but nothing in life of value is ever easy.

    That would take me to season three... This season is about me taking those mistakes learned and actually using them to become a fully functioning adult in society. :D Grabbing life by the balls and running with it! A good career and a steady way of life are helping in that regard, but needless to say, life is good. Now it's time to push that to it's utmost.

    What will season four have in store? I don't know yet. I have my goals I am working towards, so I plan on pushing my career further, and involving myself in helping the community in some way as I have in the past. I'm definitely in a good place now; especially in reference to where I have been, so I'm not opposed to sharing life with someone and seeing where that goes in the future!

    Ultimately, though, the way you speak of fighting for your life does resonate with me. It's something I've come to understand very well.

    I feel that too! The support systems we build around ourselves make a big difference. Thankfully, mine have always been real honest with me, so that even if I don't always agree with their criticisms, I still get an unfiltered idea of their perspective... Honesty is such a valuable thing.

    Still, the pendulum does swing. It's always been hard for me to ask for or accept help (I can be stubborn), but it's an important thing to do from time to time. I just have to remind myself that the pendulum does swing the other way, so there are times I get to return the favor. There's no shame in asking for help, and if anything, it engenders a stronger friendship when folks realize you trust them. Meh... I don't like debts though, so I repay mine ASAP. :D

    That's the key, there. In asking hard questions, we learn just how little we know. I do find that more exciting than anything else, though. I hope there never is a day when I think I've learned all that there is. :D

    Your questions are ones I ask myself, too. I think they are good questions for anyone to ask themselves regardless of their personality types, because they ultimately serve to make anyone a better person. I think the only thing I might add to that is that I do ask myself if I'm fooling myself. Intellectual honesty is more than just realizing that I could be lying to myself; it's also in changing that behavior when I realize it's happening; even if I don't like those changes. Epistemology has been useful in that endeavor.

    Again, thank you for taking the time to give an in depth response. I always love getting the opportunity to pick your brain a little; I feel like your insight is valuable. You're someone I respect. :)

    Absolutely. Read it with The Magic of Thinking Big if you haven't covered it. The duo is powerful.

    I'm really good at connecting the dots and seeing the big picture. I look for parallels and early indicators of behaviors and decisions. I'm trying to find the thread and follow the road so to speak. It doesn't matter when you start. Paying attention pays dividends.

    I was finding myself and really determined to do it. Once I understood the trajectory I bolted. Self-preservation and self-denial are huge strengths. There are things I wanted to do but I wouldn't pay the price. If it jeopardized my prospects or reputation I avoided it. My friendships were more diverse then.

    My life ethos was solidified in season two. That became my mantra. Bringing dreams to fruition is a big focus. I've built the life I want and I'm adding to it. My alliances are different now. We're chasing the same goals. Being on the same page is priceless.

    10X! Time to get amped. :p

    Excellent! You've come a long way and done the hard work. You deserve a reward! A nice lady would be great. Someone kind and supportive who's in your corner. :)

    Sometimes people bet against me. ;)

    You have to be strong enough to handle the truth. A lot of people look for others who validate their script. They never move forward.

    You? Stubborn? No way! :cool:

    I ask for help. But I'm selective. I don't query everyone. I check out their grass before I do. :p

    That's the fun part. You revisit your thoughts and tweak things here and there. Before you know it you've leapt several paces.

    Delusion is always a possibility. If you're afraid to fail you're stuck on the sidelines. So fail hard and fast. Dust yourself off and keep going. Tell yourself you won't be stopped. You have to reach the point within where nothing will stand in your way. Then you're indomitable where it counts.

    Thank you. Great minds my friend. I've enjoyed our discourse. :yellowheart:

    Okay, I took the test.

    The introverted thinker type. Seems like a reasonable assessment. It says my type makes up only about 3% of the population. Good! We wouldn't want to hang out with each other anyway.
