    Let's see...
    INTP.
    I don't like arguing or debates unless I have to. I don't think I'm good at it nor even know the meaning of the words "argument" and "point".
    I aspired to be a player in some sports like soccer. I envision myself to be a businessman/entrepreneur from time-to-time (mostly about game dev, which seems stereotypical to INTPs), which seems like an extrovert thing, in stereotypes.

    ISFP

    Wanted to go into engineering, was too dumb so I dropped out, currently have fantasies of entrepreneurship but will probably end up in medicine or the humanities or or living off the UBI when machines eliminate all need for human labor or minds.

    Mostly I work administrative jobs, which all supposed to be anathema to SPs. And yes, they're mind-numbingly boring, but the pay is decent and its relatively solitary.

    I don't have a job so there's that.

    I also like to write, but idk if it's a talent. Some kids on the internet liked it though.

    I can't think of anything else. I will check back if I'm on the forum in five years.

    ESTJ 1w2.

    Ways I break general stereotypes, from another thread:

    • Not only am I thoughtful and introspective, but I actually enjoy being thoughtful and introspective -- creating order in my internal environment is relaxing for my Te in the same way as creating order in my external environment.
    I don't break stereotypes re my career choice.

    Words for self-expression, data for pay. But while you won't find these in ISFP descriptions, I do actually think they fit the type.

    Well most everyone in the world is my type so I'm sure there's at least one someone with a similar flavor of ISFJ out there. Unless you mean as per the descriptions. In which case: I'm not a housewife.

    That was easy.

    Is 14% almost all of the world? Not to mention the other typology systems.

    I think those are more representative of those who've been assessed from what I'm vaguely recalling atm, so I don't reference them in my statement. It's more impression based and exaggerated for effect. And I'm speaking strictly about MBTI ISFJ for simplicity's sake.

    I'm an INFJ and I've been a dog groomer for 11 years. I'm not even helping the right species. Truth be told, I oftentimes hate my job because it gives me no sense of accomplishment, but I suppose I've stuck it out because I can avoid constant social interaction and can be left to my own thoughts all day.
