Question #1304582227Thursday, 5-May-2011
Category: Theory Typing
Are you an "either or or" type or a "neither nor" type? Most of the times when you can't choose between several things is it because many things can fit with your wishes or with your personality or on the contrary because nothing can really fit with you wishes or your personality and you have to take one of them? Personally i'm more a "neither nor" type. No type fits with me, according to Socionics ISFj, ISTp, INTp or ISTj could be my type but none of them fits really with me. -- piccolo_michel

A1 Your question leads me to think that you're an ISFj. If the act of choosing is important or stressful to you then you are likely a j-type. Also, F-types seem to agonize more over choices because choosing seems so relative to them, and hence, more complicated. T-types tend to simply focus on 'which option is best'. Often ISFj buy things on impulse then take them back after sober reflection; I know several who are somewhat negative about all their options so 'neither nor' would certainly fit. -- I/O
A2 Thanks for your answer. Actually I choose very quickly even when several things could fit, I easily find what could be the best. I'm a "neither nor" type as I can't choose when and only when nothing fits and I HAVE to take something. And you, if you happen not to be able to choose, is because several things could fit or because nothing could fit? -- piccolo_michel
A3 The ISTj has a harder time choosing when there is insufficient information; they need an absolute resolution. However, they seem to delay forever rather than act impulsively. I have seen them pick an element which may not be relevant to the immediate issue but would fit into some unrelated internal plan or process enough to tip the balance and gain closure. I haven't found them typically negative toward their dilemmas but I suppose delay could be perceived as 'neither nor'...... -- I/O
