What is your name? Or the story behind your alias?
It’s from a song by Nick Cave:
”They called me the Wild Rose
but my name was Elisa Day
why they called me that I do not know
for my name was Elisa Day”
I thought it fit a common theme in the typology community when so often you see people saying “they typed me XXXX, but I type myself XXXX.”
Where are you from?
How old are you?
What’s your gender?
What got you interested in Cognitive Type?
I had been noticing visual patterns and typing people that way using my own system forever. Then I saw some YouTube people talking about VI and relating it to MBTI. My mind was blown because I hadn’t connected the two before. When I talked about it with others eventually someone asked if I had heard of CT. I was excited to see common patterns between CT and what I had noticed myself and thrilled that we agreed on so many people’s types. That rarely happens for me in other systems.
What did/do you type as in other systems?
ISFP for over 10 years (because I’m an artist and stereotypes), then INFP for a few years, then INFJ (ironically after discovering cognitive functions and VI), now back to INFP after being typed FiNe. I was typing as IEI in Socionics, but now I don’t know anymore. EII just doesn’t really seem to fit. In enneagram I’m most likely 4w5 5w4 9w1 Sx/So.
Do you have a partner/lover?
It’s very complicated
Do you have any kids?
Do you have any pets?
No, but I want a bunny
I never had one, but lately I’ve been trying to adopt “those who dare win.”
I don’t know. I’m terrible at the favorite game.
Random fact about you?
What are facts? What is me?
