    What is your name? Or the story behind your alias?

    XxIlluminisxX…. Hmmm, I think I saw other people’s usernames that had a similar format in a game that I used to play and I instantly took a liking to it. ‘Illuminis’ is just two words put together (I think; I actually don’t quite remember): illuminate and luminous. I think it just sounded pleasing to the ear. :p

    Where are you from?

    I’m from Alberta, Canada.

    How old are you?

    18.

    What’s your gender?

    Female….. probably. *waggles eyebrows*

    What got you interested in Cognitive Type?

    I found CogType through the INTJ & INFP Coffee channel on Youtube. I was looking for more ways to type myself and found the visual typing series they started on their channel. I wanted to see what type I would get, so after mustering up some courage, I submitted a video on the old forum. After a few comments and an analysis, NeFi  Seelie was the result (though Sitbone did say that I could be an SiTe :p)! Lately, I’ve been wondering if I turned unseelie and whether or not I was another type, haha. :p

    What did/do you type as in other systems?

    In grade 8 or 9, I received ISFP after taking the 16personalities test. I completely forgot about the Myers Briggs test until grade 10 where my social studies teacher told us to take it. I got INFP. However, I wasn’t exactly satisfied with the answer and redid the test many times. Sometimes, I received INTP or ISFP, but INFP was the result I’ve gotten the most. Once, I got ESTJ. I tried other tests but I felt like I knew how to answer the questions to get a specific result.

    Now that I think of it, I feel like after watching someone on Youtube, like an interview, I sort of…. act like that person? It’s almost as if I absorbed a little bit of their energy… I don’t really know….

    Do you have a partner/lover?

    Nope! I don’t think I am mature or responsible enough to have a partner yet…. I actually feel pretty intimidated by the topic of relationships. My younger brother feels ready to have a girlfriend though, hehe. :p

    Do you have any kids?

    Nopitty nope.

    Do you have any pets?

    Nopitty nope nope. I used to have a fish named Tristan though! I thought it was real pretty. :p

    Life motto?

    I think I have a few :p. I feel like it’s going to keep growing.

    “Everyone should be a little excused in this life.” – Aurora Aksnes

    “It’s a very positive experience to talk about things, even how terrifying it may seem.” – Aurora Aksnes

    “Don’t keep all your feelings sheltered – express them. Don’t ever let life shut you up.” – Dr. Steve Maraboli

    I’m still working on following these, haha. I think these mottos express who I want to be as a person; hopefully I can reach that sort of person someday.

    Favorite Flavor?

    Oh WOW! Okay, well here are some flavors: vanilla, strawberry swirl, birthday cake, peanut butter cookie dough, pistachio, sour cream and onion, barbecue, cheesecake, matcha green tea, mango, etc. I think there are many flavors that I have not tried yet.

    Spirituality?
    Hmm… I don’t know…. If the other members don’t mind, I’ll go through some of their answers to check them out, hehe. :p

    Random fact about you?
    I heard about Aurora Aksnes from Cognitive Type and now I am really into her music. :p Thanks!

    Kate Moss?

    I was rounding a corner in Paris in my usual quick pace / stompy fashion, when I almost collided with a female. We looked up and exchanged what I now know to be scathing Gamma glares, then walked off in opposite directions. A second or two later I realised it was Kate Moss.

    I was tempted to turn around and shout “Oy fuck you Kate, you tosser!”, but I didn’t. I’m a gentleman.

    What got you interested in Cognitive Type?

    I always liked to understand the human psychology, but it really started when I’ve noticed that I was getting a hard time with the social specially making the first move, which made me a little uncomfortable around people that’s when I started studying human behavior in order to smoothen my life. Because by knowing what impact my actions have I can give the right tone. I then started studying psychology. With the systems which work with the 16 types, I started with MBTI untill I realize that it doesn’t ring well with my reality. It is when I learnt about cognitive type through a youtube channel.

     

    What did/do you type as in other systems?

    INTP is what I initially typed as in MBTI; embarassingly I thought I was INFJ until I was bludgeoned by my vultology report. However, upon reflection I think NeTi actually makes more sense. I could never quite figure out exactly what Se was in relation to myself or how to develop it. Turns out I never had it.

    Do you have a partner/lover?

    No.

    Do you have any kids?

    No.

    Do you have any pets?

    no

    Life motto?

    My name is Alice! I was in the process of thinking of a new name for myself, and I happened upon it while reading a book and it totally fit!

    Where are you from?

    North suburbs of Chicago, Illinois.

    How old are you?

    24

    What’s your gender?

    I am a trans woman.

    What got you interested in Cognitive Type?

    I was watching some youtube jungian type theorist or another, and this project was listed in some references for one of his videos.

    What did/do you type as in other systems?

    I have typed as an INFP in the MBTI for forever, EII in socionics, and as a 9w1 in the enneagram. I used to think I was a 4w5, but it didn’t really fit as well as the trappings of the type 9.

    Do you have a partner/lover?

    I do! I live with a partner of mine, and I am polyamorous! I’m usually involved in a pretty confusing web of casual and non-casual romantic endeavors. My current live-in partner has been the one constant though 🙂

    Do you have any kids?

    Nope!

    Do you have any pets?

    A lot of plants! And a rat named Poppy!

    Life motto?

    Never really had one! Maybe ‘keep going.’

    Favorite Flavor?

    This is a tough one for sure, not pulling the punches. I have absolutely no clue! Maybe chocolate?

    Spirituality?

    I feel like being a human being is enough absolute magic, and I am so constantly amazed and overwhelmed by it that I rarely ever think about the metaphysical or spiritual.

    Random fact about you?

    I used to be pretty good at Halo 2 back in the day >:)

    My name is Cody, GreenCoyote was arbitrarily thought up. I have always related to animals and Coyotes live near where I live. Green is also one of my favorite colors.

    Where are you from?
    I was born in a small town called Redlands in Southern California. I still live here.

    How old are you?
    I am 31

    What’s your gender?
    Male

    What got you interested in Cognitive Type?
    I somehow stumbled upon it through other MBTI articles. I was always fascinated by VI in Socionics but this system seems much more thought out. And I love a well thought out system with classifications and types and all that. It’s like Pokemon on steroids. but with people, except we don’t store ourselves in small spherical objects.

    What did/do you type as in other systems?
    INFJ or ENFJ. I’ve always been unsure about introvert or extrovert. I never thought I would be an SeTi just because of other descriptions of those types. I have heard though that its common for people to type as their tertiary and inferior functions tho so SeTi makes sense. I can see myself utilizing Ni Fe Ti or Se depending on the situation and what I’m doing at the time.

    Do you have a partner/lover?
    I am single but I have a close girlfriend and everyone thinks we are together.

    Do you have any kids?
    No.

    Do you have any pets?
    do feral cats that come chill on my porch with me in the evening count?

    Life motto?
    I am open to suggestions, don’t have one currently.

    Favorite Flavor?
    Avocado on Wheat bread sounds good right now but what I want to taste is always changing.

    Spirituality?
    I am sorta spiritual I guess but its complicated.

    Random fact about you?
    Besides having oatmeal, egg whites and chicken sausage for breakfast every day I also only ate tacos for 5 months straight.

    What is your name? Or the story behind your alias?

    Janie is one of the aliases I use (I try to minimize my real identity online, because of an issue).
    The story is, in my teens I noticed several people had been telling me that I didn’t look like my given name. I was telling my sister about this, and we agreed that my given name didn’t fit, and it was time to rename me. She decided I should be called Jane.

    Where are you from?

    Born and raised in the midwestern USA, I make my own home in central Europe.

    How old are you?

    I am in my mid-30’s.

    What’s your gender?

    Female.

    What got you interested in Cognitive Type?

    After a classmate at uni shared an MBTI quiz, I got into that, and started branching out a bit, learning about related systems. I joined an online group for intuitives (whoops lol), and someone there shared about her typing experience on Cognitive Type, and I was intrigued.

    What did/do you type as in other systems?

    INFP-T (MBTI), FiNx (Socionics Model G), Enneagram 4w5, 4-6-9 Sp/So.
    Was blindsided to learn that I not only likely have Se, but have apparently consciously integrated it. Still trying to figure that out.

    Do you have a partner/lover?

    Yes.

    Do you have any kids?

    No.

    Do you have any pets?

    No. But one still lives in my memories every day.

    Life motto?

    Well, when I thought I was a Delta, I liked “What’s the point of living a life that’s already been lived before?”
    I also like,  “One of the secrets to life is to make stepping stones out of stumbling blocks”
    and many, many more.

    Favorite Flavor?

    vanilla

    Spirituality?

    My spirituality is my own. It has been heavily influenced by Buddhism, especially Zen, and the religion I was raised with (Christianity) ended up finally having an influence after I was opened to spirituality in adulthood, even if just due to proximity. I find some spiritual wisdom in most religions, though, and in anything and everything I can. The mundane and the spectacular.

    Random fact about you?

    I cook my own food now.

    What got you interested in Cognitive Type?
    Pretty typical story. Took 16 Personalities test and then started looking into the theory behind MBTI. Read Jung’s Psychological Types. I think I discovered CT through a Youtube channel though I can’t remember which one specifically.

    What did/do you type as in other systems?
    INFJ. In Objective Personality I self-typed as FF NiTi SC/PB.

    Do you have a partner/lover?
    Yes, and he shares my interest in typology and CT. Maybe he’ll introduce himself at some point.

    No, I don’t plan on having any.

    What’s your gender?
    Female

    What got you interested in Cognitive Type?
    Had a conversation with someone who was into visual typing. Asked where he had learned it from and among others things he gave me a link to this website. Now, after half a year or so I came back to it and found it to be quite interesting.

    What did/do you type as in other systems?
    As a teenager I thought I might be an INFP but never really settled on any type. Last summer I finally wanted some closure and after considering almost every type (xD) settled on ISFP mostly based on the descriptions of cognitive functions and the feedback others gave me.

    Do you have a partner/lover?
    Yes <3

    Do you have any kids?
    No

    Do you have any pets?
    No I don’t, even though in the future I would like to have some kind of four-legged companion for sure. I’ve almost always had a dog or a cat around and now it feels like something important is missing.

    Life motto?
    I don’t really have one.

    Favorite Flavor?
    Coconut or vanilla

    Spirituality?
    I was raised an atheist and later on got introduced to christianity. While I’m not at the moment willing to follow any religion I still having some kind of intrinsic faith for something, which manifest in me through the need to pray in my own silent way or just be.

    Random fact about you?

    What’s your gender?

    Female

    What got you interested in Cognitive Type?

    I heard my friends talking about the theory so I checked out the website and it looked so elegant and unique, and visual typing always caught my attention because it just ignores every sliver of bias a person might have and looks straight into the truth with mannerisms and those don’t lie
