Those little differences can help eliminating the need for a mbti typing.
    I believe Angelica Huston is an INTJ 9(w1 Sx/Sp)

    Wings seem arbitrary for a lot of people. I've seen a lot of 4s that don't have anything to do with 3s or 5s. They usually are more similar to either 6, 7 or 9.
    A lot of wings don't even begin to make sense. 8 and 9 are pretty much opposites, so the wings are basically used to categorize them as "less extreme" versions. In the end, there's no real connection between them.
    personally, I relate to both the 6 wing and the 8 wing.

    There may be something to be said that the "other two" types of a tritype will tend to closely correspond with the personality traits of one's MBTI type. I strongly suspect that the primary type is more independent of MBTI type than most people realize.
    An argument is two people sharing their ignorance.

    A discussion is two people sharing their understanding, even when they disagree.
