Alright folks, i learned of MBTI over six months ago, and haven't been able to stop reading about it since. I have read about all the cognitive functions a half-dozen times, and even researched the content and speculations presented on every MBTI based forum i could find. I need your help to settle the ongoing tug-of-war occurring in my mind. Which type am I?
I mostly lurk silently on all of the different forums I have joined, watching and gathering information, often thinking I have little or no input to give. I do seemingly random research projects online as they strike my fancy, and can read online for hours at a time. I have a love for computers and cyberspace, and am excellent at troubleshooting when bad times befall my machines.
I live in a house of loud, somewhat forceful people. As such, I have a projecting voice and can also be forceful at times. I like to spend a lot of time alone in my room and vegetate on whatever interesting concept is on my mind. I am a college student and though i have a few ideas, I do not have a definite answer regarding what I would like to do with my life (I have considered being a doctor, lawyer, or scientist). I highly value intelligence in myself and others.
With people I find myself constantly changing faces. I could be a people person if I wanted (I don't) and can be charismatic when I see opportunity, but otherwise have been described as intimidating by many people I have spoken to. I attempt to be open with people, but am often alert to the fact that they would not understand me even if I told them the truth about myself. I do have a few close friends that I share many things with however.
I often become extremely absorbed in my own head. It works best when i listen to music and drive. Mental imagery fills my mind and i become absorbed in all sorts of moving picture shows that are as dramatic as the music i am playing. Sometimes they are scenarios with friends or potential romantic interests, and they usually have an odd ineffable continuity to their presentation. I can be very creative using these processes when finding solutions also.
I find myself equally decisive and indecisive about all manner of things, form where I go to the food I consume. I am very independent of others and always reach independent decisions, usually after some great length of consideration.
I have been told I act like Sheldon Cooper(from the Big Bang Theory) by two separate people, and I always feel as though i relate to odd intelligent characters like Sheldon, House, Dexter, and so on.
I realize my post is long-winded, but i would appreciate anyone's input in regards to my type. If you would like any more information, just ask.
Thanks in advance to any who respond.
