Hello,

Do you absorb information like a sponge and repeat it as written or observed, or do you synthesise the information and rearrange it like a composer, or do adsorb the information like a collector and incubate it for a long time?

One vote each asks for the principle method, but there is an option if you are undecided between two of them

The Collector choice goes against the John Fowles book of the same name.

My problem is I do not know how much I collect - it is rather an unconscious process. I "know" things I do not remember learning or applying myself to acquiring that certain information. It is just when I'm "composing", things pop into my head or even worse I get that On-the-Tip-of-the-Tongue feeling, but it's on the tip-of-my-mind instead...???...

Outside your window.
Interesting. To be honest I thought INTPs would more likely fall into the composer side of things.

When I was younger, I was more Composer (ISFP), but even then it was mostly original thoughts or sublimimated information. With musical tunes (whcih I am poor at) I could inadvertently sponge/absorb. I cannot synthesise music to any great degree and I suspect with sensor/mechanical information I absorb as well. Original thinking does help all that much when mending a bike (can do), but it can do when loading goods on it.

My pet bunny (ENFP) composed a baby with the bulldog (ENTJ) and conceived of an incredible idea (excellence of the ENTP). The bunny envisioned a future of peace (INFJ) with the courtesy of the ENTP in mind. Lions were displeased with the notion (ESTJs), yet did not take action after considering the advice of the bearded dragons (ISTJs). The INTP (turtle) observed and retreated to his shell through fear of the outcome, but the pig (ISFJ) cracked open the INTP's shell and pulled him into the chaos. The turtle was not happy and only wished for peace inside of his shell. The crocodile (ISTP) arrived while the INTP was exposed and ate him. The pig (ISFJ) commit suicide through guilt at taking the INTP into the real world and leaving him vulnerable. Frankly, the INTP was not prepared for our world.

I don't agree the allocations that for me are carefully worked out. It was the Horseman or Pony Rider (ESFJ) that delighted in finding the Turtle (or Tortoise) (INXP where the X is a F nearing T). It is written in the myths.

The Turtle has to beware of the Jaguar (Big Cat ESTP var.). Crocs can handle Big Cats. It is a stand off.

The Wolfman (ENTJ) down the watering hole has a Boxer (replacing a Bulldog ISTJ var.).

ENFPs can be dangerous but in their innoculous version is the Meerkat. Rabbit would not be too far out and they can startled in the hunt.

I'm creating my own myth. I declare the Wolfman an ESFP and the Turtle an INTJ.

Fair enough. I allocated Wolfman wrongly at first. ENTJ - INTJ Wolf-Hawk continuum. You see this as the Sheriff and the Deputy.

The Smurfs (ESTJs) protect the village from the Orc Overlords (ESTPs) that the Trolls (ISTPs) lead.

Very good. I think it was said that Bulls (ESTJ) riding on the back of Lions (ESTP) with Hitler (ISTP) in charge.

I have included the initials, but the animal allocations were by somebody famous.

The Smurfs have you trapped in their pond and it is only possible to reach the surface occasionally. They have Bees (ENTJs) to ensure that you remain underneath the water.

As a default I both Absorb (composer), and Adsorb (Collector). I do both unconsciously, but more noticeably the former.


Spongers are more J than Architects or Collectors. :evil: :king-twitter::smiley_emoticons_mr
