Need help in determining my sociotype

For now I have been dealing with socionics for a bit more than a month... And I still haven't got the slightest idea about my sociotype :cry:
The only thing I am positive about is that I'm an extrovert. When I did the test I got ILE... But there were several things I just could no agree to. For example a friend of mine told me that ILE's don't like hierarchies.. But I'm all about hierarchies! I feel confident in hierarchies and I am very confused when someone on an upper level (for example teachers) don't act up to their level and try to be equal to you :shock: Also I have very analytical way of thinking (in my opinion at least), I am very detailed and in dressing I tend to like beautiful things that are different.. There are periods when I put a loot of stress on my clothing, but I tend to like things that are not common in my culture.. things that might approve a bit shocking to others. As well I like to read about new things, my objects of interest tend to change in every 3-6 months, but I remember best any kind of information that I could use in various disputes and what suits my logic. If I read something that doesn't suit my logic BUT who I really respect, I try to understand their way of thinking and sometimes I then adapt it, if I see that it is of greater use or more complicated than my own view.
Also disputes (mostly intellectual ones, but any kind will do) give me whopping enerqy boosts (sometimes I have qualms about it). Also I usually can't stand people who are unable to stand for themselves (with the exception of one supercute IEI, who drives me crazy because I can't understand her, but then again she.. well You know about IEIs :lol: )
Also I have problems with trusting people when it comes to intimate level and tend to keep things that are important and hard for me for myself (I don't do it with people not so close, because then I don't have to take them seriously enough or smth).. And I tend to see the world as a battlefield where there's no place for losers, so I am very harsh on myself inside, but I never show out, because I don't want to be seen vulnerable to people who I respect..
Also I suck horribly at self-analyzing and flirting :lol:

I seldom get angry, but when I do, I refuse to give up the dispute before the conflict has been settled. But I tend to have sudden bursts of happiness, which usually wear off rather quickly.

I have tried SLE, but I think I'm much more emotional than SLE seems to be, then I tried EIE, because when I fall in love, I see the world as a stage and tend to glorify the girl I am attracted to, to the heavens (not in front of her, ofcourse :mrgreen: ) but I don't think I know people as much as EIE is supposed to..

Oh, and if that should show anything, then my main reason, why I read about socionics, is to understand other people, to have a better structure of them for myself :D

I hope any one can help me in this matter... thaankss!!

Can you post the link or results of the test you took?

By the way, what are primary and secondary romance types ? I know that there are agressors and victims and others, but what are the functions of primary and secondary ?? :mrgreen:

ESE is my best guess from your self-presentation in the op

From how you have presented yourself, you seem VERY much like a Beta Extravert and not an Alpha one. This is due to how you respect hierarchy, want it to be upheld by others, are combative in fighting a dispute to the end and expect others to be able to stand up for themselves... these are all Extraverted Sensing + Introverted Logic valuing traits. The valuing of Extraverted Ethics is also quite clear.

To distinguish between EIE and SLE, focus on what you do effortlessly as opposed to what you simply like or want to do. Do you effortlessly apply your logic and willpower or do you effortlessly apply your emotionality and intuiton of the big picture? Which of them flow out naturally and which do you enjoy but also need to work on?

Do NOT however, rely on tests. Rely instead on your own knowledge of yourself and your understanding of Socionics (with help from those with greater expertise).

I wouldn't be surprised if you were SLE (ESTp). Based on your description, I'm more comfortable believing you have an EP temperament.
