I read your bio, and the thing that stuck out to me is that there is no mention of the effect that being so small in stature has had on shaping who you are. The effect cannot be negligible. 5'2" is really, very, noticeably shorter than the average height.

"Diminutive" is one of the 10 words that describes you, as well. Have you put any thought into how that has affected your personality, beliefs, etc. ?

This is purely out of curiosity, and feel free to tell me to go find something else to be curious about.

Hard to say, mostly because it's extremely difficult by introspection to distinguish between cause and effect. For example, am I an INTP because awkwardness dealing with others in my youth (due in part to my small size) led me to focus my energy inward, or would I have done that anyway because of genetics?

I do suspect that it has influenced my habits of conflict avoidance and many of my physical-social behaviors, like automatically moving out of other people's way and avoiding confrontational stances. But once again, I know plenty of people who are small and reacted to it by becoming compensatorily scrappy and combative, so it's still murky - did I develop into a conflict-avoidant Type 9 because I'm small or did I react to being small by becoming conflict avoidant because I was already prone to developing as a Type 9?

I don't think it's affected my beliefs, based on the fundamental nature of INTP activity (building internal reality-systems with information gained by seeing connections and relationships externally). The self is almost never a dominant feature of the INTP's life.

That's very interesting.

Allow me to free-associate a touch?

I share some qualities of an INTP but test very slightly on the INFP side of the border. The T/F are either both strong or both weak in me, sometimes hard to tell. But I am very interested in the self, in subjectivism, solipsism, relativism, optimistic nihilism and the like. My interest in these subjects, like your own chicken/egg uncertainties, could stem from interest in the self, or the interest in self could stem from the subjects. It's all very interesting.

I suspected that you were closely balanced on the T/F scale from the way you wrote.
