Myers-Briggs Types and Chess

    INFP here. Im multi-talented. I make poems, run cross country, study math and engineering, write, love music, played piano, know spanish, some japanese, etc. Im just a nerd, but i do social things too (but its stressful bc i hate crowds and get overwhelmed and annoyed). I study chess alot. My weaknesses are dismissing people and refusing to try when i see them play a retarded opening like the philidor defense or the italian game or pirc. those openings play themselves and i win alot but my losses are from not trying and laziness, cave-man attacks and scalps bc those openings have minimal strategy. I try to transpose to something complex when i can like the Kings Indian from the Philidor/Pirc/Steinitz Defense. I do exceptionally well when the position is complicated. If i dont like something, i will force my will and look for ways to punish it to the max and tell my opponent to never play a move like that again. Im a positional based player, 100% strategy in the beginning, but have became 100% tactical, i play strategy with tactics with position. Im just integrated. My openings now are similar to Shirov-type openings, like Kings Indian, Slav, Shabalov attack, Martinez Variaiton Ruy Lopez with 7. g4 , Marshall Attack, Open Chigorin, Sicilian Dragon, Bird Opening, Regular ruy lopez martinex variant playing f4, regular ruy lopez, worrall system ruy lopez, Be2 positional sicilian where i simply grind them and play like karpov (take b6 square, and d5 square, o-o), or play like Tal with early g4 (delayed o-o-o) or delay g4 with early castling (o-o-o). I have also went through a phase of playing the english opening, the catalan, queens gambit, reti, the london system, the colle zukertort system, the colle system, stonewall attack. The opening i started out with was the Caro Kann, and as white i played e4, be2, nf3 be3, simple development. Started out with moving fortress chess style. giant pawn wall with pieces behind. I have a long way to go and my goal is to memorize (and understand) all variations (as a practical guideline) and know all ideas to all positions and create ideas. If im lazy and annoyed i play like Tal, if im nervous i play like Petrosian (passive, or cautious, or prophelactic, it changes), if im confident i play like kasparov. My personality is extremely similar to vassily ivanchuk, im ambitious, but extremely awkward and sensitive in real life (all infp steriotypes 100% accurate, i am nice, etc.). I believe INFPs would make gr8 players and I dont think we should be restricted to a steriotype. My style is romantic at times, like lasker at times, karpov, capablanca, etc. I study alot of games, currently studying kramnik right now. Also im unrated rn, plan on getting rated toward end of year. 1600 here, 1985 on chess24. I know alot, but my games on here are 100% intuition, minimal calculation. I tend to focus only when there is silence, minimal humidity, cool air, opponent is quiet, i ate before i play, i meditates before (nerves are my biggest weakness bc it blocks my calculation when i can calculate deep 20 moves at times with slowing down, with nerves it goes to 6 instantly). So i carry the percieving problem of distractions. Imposing my will and playing my chess, making the board look my way, the right way, where all pieces active, i make my minor pieces stronger (i have a personal relationship with my army and they with me in sacrifice if necessary), and using my intuition for things and understanding, positional moves, but im not afraid of using my memory and known variaitons to influence my move. I switch from playing the objective best move and psychological move depending on my mood. I can be a tricky player, logical player (with strategy, closed position, pawn breaks), positional player(improving my position/ grinding, weak squares), and i can be a very tactical player (how i win games usually). I dont like draws. If i had a  choice between draw and take a risk, there is 65% chance i would take a risk. I still have alot to understand in chess.
