Personality Typing

Post by daylen » Wed Oct 30, 2019 4:00 am

I intend this thread to be the more practical twin to this thread: viewtopic.php?f=6&t=10864. Here I will try to discuss and show how the theory in that thread (and elsewhere) can be applied. I figure this thread would be a good place for anyone to analyze the types of historical figures and potentially even fictional characters. I chose the skills and tools sub-forum, because I tend to think of typing models as tools only effective in the hands of a skilled user with a purpose in mind. Systems biology and social science are very messy so there will always be some room for interpretation. There is no final or definite frame for dealing with this level of reality, therefore I expect that everyone will have their own ways of using the information presented here. Hopefully, this thread can help alleviate some frustration associated with the learning process without producing a single standardization.

The following overview could be thought of as a forest where seeds can be planted to develop into a personalized model that only establishes the necessary environmental associations to thrive. Such a frame allows communication without completely closing off novel associations. What is stable or not will emerge from use and disuse. Some associations will prove easy to identify and communicate; others will not.

Personality ~ patterns of behavior ~ models of entire agents
INTP ~ Ti-Ne ~ logician, theorist, designer ~ linguist ~ reads/writes encyclopedias for fun ~ can have slow response time to sudden, unexpected changes in environment

ENTJ ~ Te-Ni ~ conqueror, commander, mobilizer ~ gets grumpy when others disrupt their workflow ~ probably a proud workaholic
ISFP ~ Fi-Se ~ adventurer, artist, composer ~ live and let live ~ hard time seeing how life could be different
ESFP ~ Se-Fi ~ entertainer, motivator, presenter ~ very optimistic ~ susceptible to framing ~ low expectations ~ disappointment is fleeting
ISTJ ~ Si-Te ~ logistician, inspector ~ manages finances and personal property in detail ~ suspicious of framing
ESTJ ~ Te-Si ~ executive, implementer, supervisor ~ enjoys micromanaging subordinates ~ can make excellent teachers in a class setting

System 1 Typing
Quick and imprecise. Requires extensive practice to become accurate. A more personalized frame allows for quicker validation. Forces typist to work with incomplete information and helps set priorities for future frame development.

System 2 Typing
Slow and precise. Improved by utilizing a ledger where the quantity of observations can be recorded. The ledger could span across multiple levels of resolution and be cross-validated after enough data is collected using equivalencies between them.

So, my BF who I have typed as ESTJ , made a rude , irritable comment to me this morning. He said “Why are you rubbing your leg like that? Do you have Tourette’s?” Based on what I have read about interactions between ESTJ and ENTP, I did not choose to respond in my usual manner which would be either cheerful/ nerdy/ oblivious/curious “Why was I rubbing my leg?” or hurt/defensive (tertiary Fe?) “Why are you such an asshole?” Instead I attempted to combine my already strong A(assertive) with a rise towards J in dominant energy. So I adjusted my voice to lower register and replied very firmly “ Stop your nagging, woman. I do what I want.” And it totally worked! Except I immediately felt a bit guilty for being so unkind and I was also so amused with myself I couldn’t hold the dominant pose for more than a minute.

I would have gone with something of the order of "Fuck you maggot dick breathe in your grandmother's dead asshole" which would serve both as an appropriate response to the first question and an affirmative response to the second.

Will continue fixing and updating first post. Accidentally mixed up delta and gamma quadras earlier. Tonight I will probably write a flood of posts here on whatever comes to mind.

@Jason That would be an excellent response in a beta quadra setting.

It would be interesting to see a mapping from the functions to the DISC-model as well. DISC is already mapped to the four temperaments (choleric, etc.). Also, it's mapped to MBTI (INTJ is purple or red/blue, for example).

If I'm remembering correctly, I got a lot of use out of the DiSC report. Possibly the main use was to give it to my bosses. It had a section with great advice on working with / managing me.

Added bare-bone sections on DISC, OCEAN, and Enneagram that can be expanded upon.

Here is a good video introduction to Enneagram that shows how progression is primarily lateral (i.e. 9 <-> 1 <-> 2 <-> 3 and so forth). Moving from 1 to 7 is less likely than from 1 to 9 for instance, hence the idea of wings where each type is moving towards one of the two adjacent types. There are also three different categories (heart/soul ~ 234, head/mind ~ 567, body/gut ~ 891).
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cJJp-z_wkBk&t=523s

You can specify what your dominate type is in each category; this is called your tritype. My tritype is 593 which is nicknamed the thinker (primary investigator, secondary peacemaker, tertiary achiever).

Typing fictional characters can sometimes lead to interesting paradoxes and this is helpful in establishing a truly universal model. Fiction can present test cases that lie at the edge or beyond what a human is capable of. Such extremes help form theoretical poles that ground a frame in place. Even fiction is limited by physics/logic, so any imaginable reality is a possible reality. If you can simulate it, then how can you justify its non-existence without deconstructing the ideas of 'simulation' and/or 'existence'?

That's true. For instance, Jane Austen described Anne Elliot, the protagonist of "Persuasion", as being "too good." (ISFJ?) However, according to this site, Fitzwilliam Darcy is easy to peg as INTJ.

https://www.theodysseyonline.com/austen-characters-mbti

Unfortunately, the only example of female ENTP in Austen's works is suggested to be the anti-heroine Mary Crawford who holds the avocation and moral code of the prudish, earnest clergyman Edmund Bertram in disrespect. I always believed Emma might be towards ENTP due to her tendency towards light-hearted, rather careless, experimentation with the social life of those around her, but the site tags her as ENFJ.

Mark Twain, being an ENTP himself, creates some very realistic portrayals of the type. For instance, Tom Sawyer's behavior in pawning off white-washing job and skipping school to head off on adventure is classic. This is why ENTPs are the most likely of the Rationals to not do well academically. This sort of thing sometimes causes ENTPs to be wrongfully described as "lazy", but this only holds when an ENTP is faced with an obviously possible (b-o-r-i-n-g) task (such as any direct path towards FI measured by SWR steps.) When challenged with tasks that seem impossible (Bet you can't....)or are full of unknowns (Where does this cave lead...)we can be super-energetic. I would also note that, IMO, Saul Goodman comes off pretty good compared to whatever terrible type (ISTJ?) his older brother is in "Better Call Saul."

One thread I was reading on the topic of ESTJ/ENTP relationships said that for a female ENTP to allow herself to be in the follow to a male ESTJ is the equivalent of "going through menopause." Since I am currently actually going through menopause while in relationship with a male ESTJ and residing on his turf, it is pretty clear why I am in a serious schlump. OTOH, I feel like maybe there is some work I am meant to do while in this holding cell. Like I can't just leave, I gotta find a key first. Dunno.

While it has some entertainment value to sort the Austen characters into the MTBI personalities I don't know how it holds up with today's framework. People were very restricted then and often could not act according to their true personalities.

I have always felt some kinship with Mary Crawford. I thought it was because we both play the harp and have a pretty cutting wit, but given this new information, there might be some more similarities :) I love how she constantly pokes at (holier-than-thou, stick-in-the-mud) Edmund and exposes his weaknesses. That she herself appears not so much to advantage in this is mostly due to the weird social norms of that time. Some of it might be interpreted as unkindness, but to me, she is only pretty blunt and too logical for what is socially acceptable for women, even more so at this time. She is naturally endlessly fascinated by Edmund's character, so unlike her own. But ultimately they would have been very unhappy together, so it was good that Edmund ended up with the ever-patient and understanding Fanny ;)

Anyway, I very much enjoy this thread and learn a lot. I feel better if I can put things and people into boxes and put labels on the boxes, it helps me to not get overwhelmed in this crazy world. Surely there will be situations where this is limiting, but all in all, it works well for me. So further study helps me to create more accurate boxes :)

@daylen, what is your MBTI if I may ask? I suppose that certain types are more drawn to this kind of categorizing people than others. The fact that 7wb5 and I are all over this kind of threads suggest that ENTPs do enjoy it :)

@7w5 I do not know about that other stuff, but Chuck McGill fits ISTJ (Saul's brother). Fe PoLR seems apparent given his reclusive nature and detail orientation (dominate Si). I will look more into it.

@horsewoman I am an INTP-A. Typically, introverted and thinking types are more into categorization of personality because they do not interact (E) as often with people (F). Hence, a model of humans is useful in a reality where that system has an impactful effect on the environment.

I'm still not sure if the "E" really discribes me well, after all it came out only at 54%. The extroversion comes in short, violent bursts that leave me exhausted, but somehow I need to get it out of my system now and then. I was really amazed how closely the test pictured my conflicted views on extroversion/introversion.

True. Of course, it also might be the case that the naturally holier-than-thou, stick-in-the-mud types might feel oppressed during more free-wheeling eras. I was watching the movie "Goonies" with some alternative high school students today and one of them said "I think this was rated G in the 1980s, because people were less sensitive then."

ETA:

Yeah, I am pretty close to XNTP too. I wonder if many extreme E - ENTPS would be attracted to this forum? Classic ENTP is supposed to be more of an easy-come, easy-go type financially. Since I am quite a bit more fluidly social now than when I was younger, I can kind of see why this would be true further up the continuum. Why worry about money, when all you have to do is combine ideas with people to get some more? IOW, for a very E-ENTP, money would be much more flow than stock in lifestyle systems diagram. Unfortunately, the more bookworm type eNTP is less likely to generate flow of funds interacting with fictional characters :lol:

Wait what!? I thought Gandalf was an intp. Maybe he is a infj from the movies, but in the books he seems kind of like an intp, though I can see it and I have not done in depth analysis.

I have not read the books, but Gandalf on the show fits infj. Notice how he is almost always either leading, planning, or just observing in the background (Ni). He always knows what is going on (Ni), what to do about it (Se), who to talk to (Fe), and how to find more information if needed (Ti). His Ti is not apparent enough to be an intp and he uses very little Ne, Si, Fi, or Te. The books could be different.

His transformation into Gandalf the white is basically Ni-hibernation mode. He even forgets his name.

@daylen:

You ( your "voice") remind me very much of my DS31 INTP, so I think you ought to read the series, because it was one of my son's childhood favorites, even though he was usually reading history, classics and linguistics. He says things to me like "You are obviously quite intelligent, but your brain does not work efficiently." or "Thank you for giving me a fun childhood."

Since I raised an INTP from birth, it has been my observation that the INTP (and, therefore, somewhat or intermittently also the low e -ENTP) is naturally frugal simply because most of what an INTP wants (piles of books, one large meal per day of something like an entire pizza, internet access, maybe a dog, best friend or SO) is not very expensive on the modern market. My DD28 who is something like eNXj (reminds me most of Edith Keeler "voice" on the forum) is not as naturally frugal, in the sense of having no urge to go shopping or acquire "stuff", but is very crafty, self-sufficient and competent. For instance, if my children were each given $100 as Xmas present from grandparents, my daughter's money would be gone within 3 days (as soon as she had opportunity to interact with her friends), but I would find my son's money still in an envelope on top of a very neatly aligned, dust-covered pile of books 6 months later. And, I recently had to advise my son on how to purchase an appropriate jacket to wear to his sister's wedding, whereas my daughter spent a year making beautiful intricate origami bouquets of flowers for herself and all of her bride's people instead of spending money on fresh flowers. It's weird when your kids are both "older soul" types than you are yourself.

I have tried to read fiction several times, and I can never finish. I always get side tracked. Perhaps I just haven't been trying the right books, so maybe I can get into LoTR. I like shows since I can watch them while I do miscellaneous tasks such as writing, making diagrams, reading non-fiction, hobby electronics, and so forth. Mostly I just watch the same stuff over and over, but each time my impression grows deeper and so it seems different. I have a 1TB hard drive filled with hundreds of movies and shows. It makes for an excellent data-set for tuning personality models (books are denser in words but non-verbal information tells a story of its own).
