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

    My name is one of the many names of one of the Hindu God’s (Vishnu) incarnations (Krishna). This was the name he supposedly went by when he was a Shepperd (Yea, see the parallels in religions?)

    Where are you from?

    Chennai, India

    How old are you?

    23

    What’s your gender?
    Male

    What got you interested in Cognitive Type?

    I saw a Youtuber talk about Vultology in one of his videos and how it was inaccurate (funny, it only got me curious and now I see it as way more accurate than vanilla MBTI)

    What did/do you type as in other systems?

    INFP in MBTI, 4w5 in Enneagram (although I believe I’m 5w4). When MBTI practitioners type me INFP, I ask them “Why not ENFP? I rarely think about feelings, but I do a lot of theorization and rational thinking”, to which they say something along the lines of me being too feely or whatever (yea, hate it when people talk about my lack of logic, yet they go by blank stereotypes without individual thought; ironic [insert Palpatine prequel meme])

    Do you have a partner/lover?

    Nope, and going by how people perceive me, I think I’m gonna be forever alone

    Do you have any kids?

    Not yet :P, would like to adopt in the future (I feel like not having genetic kids would be a positive effect for the future population since even me having 1 kid would multiply significantly down the tree in the future)

    Do you have any pets?

    Yes, 1 cat named Alex, no one has shown me love like she has to me (yes, cats can show love, if you can learn their “language”, so to speak)

    Life motto?

    “Block people before they block you and hurt you first”

    Favourite Flavour?

    Of Ice-cream? Chocolate

    Spirituality?

    A random mix of any remotely spiritual thing I read about and my own theories.

    Random fact about you?

    What is your name?
    Paul.
    I estimate my blood being 3 liters of ancestors living in the mouth of river Rhine (Holland), 1,0 Asian (Indonesia), 0,7 German, 0,3 Scottish, 0,3 Netherlands/Belgium. But, blood consists for almost 90% of water.

    Where are you from?
    I was born in The Netherlands, grew up in several cities, but currently live in a studio almost in a forest.

    How old are you?
    I am from August 1962. You may do the math.

    What’s your gender?
    Male.

    What got you interested in Cognitive Type?
    I am a marketer, with a curious interest for human behavior and motivation. After years of working in media industry, I decided to go teaching in higher education. Do this for 11 years now. I like the idea to help people, however through a system or mechanism. And, equally important, I like to understand myself.

    What did/do you type as in other systems?
    INTP, but especially NT. I am apparently an introvert with extravert skills. And I like getting things done, but procrastination is not unfamiliar, to put it mildly. Nevertheless, I better understand Jung’s cognitive functions than all the fixed structures, axes and boxes. I type as HSP as well, but this is not what I express to the outside.

    Do you have a partner/lover?
    The simple answer is no. At the moment. Sometimes accidentally in love.

    Do you have any kids?
    Yes, I love my daughter.

    Do you have any pets?
    No, I am not allowed to have a pet in my apartment. I like pets, dogs as well as cats. As long as it has a understandable personality.

    Life motto?
    Dum volvo, video disco.

    Favorite Flavor?
    Salt. I know, not a real flavor.

    Spirituality?
    Self reflection.

    Hi,

    I decided to stop hiding in shadows of virtual shyness, so here is my introduction:

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

    Pokomonka is created from letters of my real name and surnames. It also sounds similar to Pokemon which I find very cool… in a nerdy way.

    Where are you from?

    Central Europe.

    How old are you?

    I guess I can still classify myself as a young adult.

    What’s your gender?

    Female.

    What got you interested in Cognitive Type?

    I couldn’t settle on one type in MBTI/Socionics with confidence (despite talking to a lot of people in the field, as you’ll see below), therefore the possibility of being typed according nonverbal cues and signals (= more objectively) seemed very fresh and interesting to me. At first I found School of Associative Socionics, who typed me as IEI based on my art and music preferenes. Then I found Calypso (originally INTJ&INFP Coffee, now Casual Cognition), who typed me as INTJ with developped Fi based on my visual cues and speech patterns. And finally I found Auburn, who typed me as FiSe I—/ I-I- (with NiTe I-I- being a less possible possibility). I’m still not sure though…

    What did/do you type as in other systems?

    INFP by most MBTI profilers who I have spoken with (PersonalityHacker, ObjectiveTypology, Ben Vaserlan…)

    INTP by official MBTI instrument.

    INFJ by majority of free MBTI online tests (also my self estimated type for a long years).

    EII and IEI by Socionics profilers.

    Other systems:

    Enneagram : (4)-6-9 (Katherine Fauvre), 4w5 so/sx (Beatrice Chestnut, Pat O’Hanrahan)

    Holland Codes: IASCER

    Temperament: Melancholic/Phlegmatic

    CliftonStrenghts: Intellection, Input, Learner, Ideation, Strategic

    Oldham Styles: Mercurial

    Learning Styles: Abstract Sequential

    Philosopher’s Wheel: Essentialist

    Hogwart House: Rawenclaw

    Do you have a partner/lover?

    Yes, an INTJ in MBTI system.

    Do you have any kids?

    Yes, two human clones (= identical twins)

    Do you have any pets?

    I used to have parrots, currently I only own many Oryzaephilus surinamensis folks, unwillingly.

    Life motto?

    Life is Strange.

    Favorite Flavor?

    Flavor of free time.

    Spirituality?

    I used to be very into esoteric stuff during my teen years, but my attention schifted more towards “rational” psychological systems. Despite that I still believe in some higher entity…

    Random fact about you?

    Living somewhere in the neurodiverse spectrum.

    Welcome!  Another Fi-dominant living on the neurodiverse spectrum! I can relate to the confusion.  I had a similar thing happen where in Cognitive 8, they thought I was an Si-dominant with Fi in the “tertiary” position!  In Cognitive Personality Theory, I was typed as an IFS-Nt (INFP) with IFN-St (ISFP) as an alternative!  I strongly believe putting my Fi in the dominant position, as in Cognitive Type and Cognitive Personality Theory, is more correct.  I think I have a little bit of a restricted affect, so it’s not always obvious on camera.  🙂

    Hi @Amy Marie and thanks for welcoming post 🙂

    Yes, getting my long life clumsiness named as “dyspraxia” gave me sort of relief and understanding of many problems I was facing. I found this specific connection between Fi and being on the Spectrum which @Auburn noticed very fascinating as many popular stereotypes only mention a correlation with Thinking (especially for those with autism and/or Aspergers’) or boldly declare MBTI and other similar systems as applicable for normal and healthy population only. I remember I almost took this as an personal insult when I first approached this thought. I believe the borderline between normal and not normal is very thin and hard to find, if it’s even possible to do so. New diagnoses are established every since and than and what is consider normal but a little weird today can be labeled as disorder of some kind tomorow…

    I guess being so clumsy and impractical was the main reason why I struggled to relate to both sensing functions (in MBTI and Socionics) and I still have serious doubts about it even here on CT, however I admitt I have been havily influenced by MBTI for years so “reprograming” my mind can take some time, and, secondly, it’s probably for different discussion… 🙂

    What is your name? Or the story behind your alias?
    I played a lot of FPS and synthek is the nick I used. I liked it because it resembles synchronicity and synthesis (more than the other), which are concepts that I was somewhat attached to.

    Where are you from?
    Brazil

    How old are you?
    I’m 26.

    What’s your gender?
    Male

    What got you interested in Cognitive Type?
    I was looking for visual typing in socionics and then I found CT. It seemed more sophisticated and accurate to me.

    What did/do you type as in other systems?
    INTP in MBTI and INTj in socionics. In both of them I was always asking myself if I wasn’t INFP/INFj. In enneagram I used to type 5w4 and tritype 549. In the stanford enneagram test I got type 7, but it’s description is the one that most accurately described me in comparison with the other enneagram tests I’ve made.

    Do you have a partner/lover?
    Yes.

    Do you have any kids?
    Nope.

    Do you have any pets?
    Yeah, a dog. Unfortunately she’s quite old.

    Life motto?
    I’ve never thought about it, but I seek understanding.

    Favorite Flavor?

    Spirituality?
    Yes.

    It’s…my name.  Yep.  I debated creating an alias but I don’t really have one currently, I’m just trying to be me.  Figured there wouldn’t be a “Rochelle” on the forum yet so why not.

    How old are you?

    Old enough…I guess.

    What’s your gender?

    Female

    What got you interested in Cognitive Type?

    Stumbled across it because I was frustrated with the MBTI-derived type labels being unnecessarily convoluted.  Wondered why we didn’t just go by the first two functions, since it’s the same number of characters and a lot more clear… Was curious to see if there were any systems or theories out there that referred to the types that way… Googled “NiFe”… Found cognitivetype.com!

    What did/do you type as in other systems?

    The first test I ever took in my teen years: INFJ (I doubt it was the official MBTI but I honestly don’t know. It was online and you needed a login key to get access to it.  All you got at the end were “the letters” with percentages of each one.)

    From all the various freebie assessments: INFJ. Second most common result: INTP.  I can also get occasional test results of INTJ, INFP, or more rarely E or S types.

    I have gone through the process of rediscovering typology after a 10+ year break from caring about it.  First I worried that the whole thing was useless because I had always typed as INFJ but very few “INFJ” authorities online resonated with me at all…  Discovered that mistyping is a very real thing (well, duh!) and that going by test results alone is prone to error.  Had to wonder whether I was the mistyped one.  Dug through a slew of theories and tried my best to learn how to type by functions…  After all of that rigamarole as best I could tell I had to be Ni-Fe-Ti-Se.

    My whole attitude toward type was that I could definitely see proof of functions being a real thing, probably genetic, it’s not so much personality as neurodiversity, and surely there would be solid proof to identify them in some physical way, it just hadn’t been identified yet…

    When I discovered CT via Google this summer I quickly stumbled across the codifier and the playlist of videos that describes exactly how to identify the signals it’s showing, and I was blown away.  (Poking around where I don’t belong but without those videos I wouldn’t have stuck around to explore the rest of the content of CT, so thank you for leaving them accessible to the public. And sorry?)  I had heard of the difference between a Fi and Fe smile, but with a few static images to back up the claims, and I couldn’t be sure I was interpreting the photos correctly.  And then…there they were.  Animated and explained and so incredibly clear!  And so much more!  Because of that proof I stuck around and kept reading.  I was struck by the CT theory ticking all the boxes of what I was looking for.  Of course I had to majorly rethink my understanding of the functions aaand question yet again whether I was NiFe or not!!  From my completely illegal self-training I’m 99% sure I’m using Ni-Se and Ti-Fe??  I couldn’t not try to figure myself out yet again, haha.  As of today I’m still pretty sure I’m some sort of NiFe creature even by vultology standards, and especially by the archetypes and behaviorism descriptions on CT.  But if I’m wrong I guess I’ll deal with it.  May as well be proven wrong sooner than later, if so.  Paying to be assessed isn’t an option currently so I feel kind of bad coming in here as a freeloader of sorts… I know the forum is open now, but still. I’m not asking to be typed for free, I’m just very much in the process of unlearning previous theories and wrapping my head around CT.

    Enneagram isn’t a system that I care for much but I pin myself as a 5w4 there.

    Do you have a partner/lover?

    Yes!  I’m happily married.

    Do you have any kids?

    One.

    Do you have any pets?

    Yes. We have a floof beast.

    Life motto?

    We’re all pink on the inside. Okay that’s not really my life’s motto, just something I declared when I was criticized for wearing pink once. Maybe now it’s infinitely curious? Too recent to be sure.

    Favorite Flavor?

    I have a terrible time choosing favorites of just about anything.

    Spirituality?

    Yes, as far as having a spiritual interest and personal religious beliefs. “Spirituality” can mean different thing to different people.  I’m one of Jehovah’s Witnesses, and personally I really appreciate it when people get specific in defining what they believe.  So yes I believe in God, that the Bible is his word, and Jesus is his son.  I believe in creation but not that the earth is only a few thousand years old, that we are a soul, not that we have a soul…you can ask me anything if you want specifics.

    Random fact about you?

    I’m staying up way too late tonight but there’s ice cream and MST3K with my husband involved so I’m focusing on the good.

    @Rochelle I’ve done the illegal vultology training myself (and still doing it) and no one seemed to complain, so it’s cool. You sound like an interesting person; maybe you can join the discord as well, if you have the time. I can help you with your typing and provide signals if you want. TiSe seems correct to me so far and maybe with conscious Je. Based on what I read from you so far, being a reviser would fit very well with your personality. I think being Ti lead and having dyslexia should be frustrating.

    Male

    What got you interested in Cognitive Type?

    I was into MBTI, heard about “Calypso drama” and this site was mentioned. I liked the “hard” data based approach, so I visited from time to time.

    What did/do you type as in other systems?
    Never talked to experts (or “experts”) so based on online tests and descriptions of functions, somewhere between INXP and INFJ (mostly INFP), or its equivalents in Socionics.

    Then I realized that Ji-dom doesn’t really fit me and coincidentally joined CJ/QG Discord server about that time. There I was typed as unseelie NeFi l-l- (with slight chance of being polarized SiTe) and that somehow fits with my other observations.

    Enneagram-wise – 5w4- 9w8- 4w5, sometimes I doubt order based on my mood or day, but “5w4 sp” is the most consistent one.

    Life motto?
    Many and none at the same time. I guess “Live and let live” encapsulate me quite well, but I have the same expectation of others, so sometimes its “Live and let live!😠”

    Favourite Flavour?
    Too much of anything becomes “boring/sated”

    Spirituality?
    I believe that spirituality carries some profound messages and its worth exploring, but in the “archetypical” way, not supernatural. So, atheist to the point of not believing in God(s), afterlife or soul (and hoping I am wrong about the last two).

    Random fact about you?
    I am a big music nerd, especially when it comes to metal/rock (I also ended up being member of two bands), always searching/exploring new (sub)genres/bands/artists. If it fits at least one criterion of Melancholic/Dark/Atmospheric/Weird/Original, there is a big change I will like it.
