So, I am ENTP 7w8. At least I am fairly confident on the 7w8 part.
Now, some people would argue that I show a lot of e5. Actually a big thing was figuring out between 5 and 7.
Most people when they type me have a hard time applying a tri-type that fits the rules. It seems I am dominated by the head. A good friend of mine would suggest I am 7w8-5w4-2w3, thus with no gut. Whereas my mother would like to say I have no heart, pun definitely intended. Heh. She types me as 7w8-5w?-8w?
Most people would say (and I would tend to heavily agree) that I don't have much 6 at all. I would heavily stray away from saying I am a 1 as well....my ethics leave much to be desired. And as for 2...not the most empathetic tool in the shed. I am definitely not a reserved and melancholy 4. Out of the heart triad, I relate most to a 3. People say I can be very methodical about controlling my image. In most public situations I think I come across as a jolly -ol 7. Intellectual friends definitely see my 5 coming out. And when I really love you, I can be a tyrannical 8 despot. I also have been known to be incredibly laid-back and react to set-backs or confrontations like water off a duck...9?
My question is, how can this play into assessing my tri-type accurately? I am clearly mistyping/ being mistyped somewhere. But where? What interactions can be at work here that could lead to such horrendous errors?
