    Default What kind of types do you resemble situationally?

    My answers:

    ENTJ when negotiating business deals, and in some job interviews
    ENTP regularly
    INTP while studying, or when in "informative" or analyzing role in public

    ENFP when spending time with someone with good emotional world
    ENFJ when I notice the need to be mentoring or therapeutic for someone
    INFP when I'm on sentimental mood and watch some sad movie (edit: moved from ISFP)

    ESTP in my impulsive mood with good friends
    ISTP when concentrating on bureaucratic paperwork

    ISTJ when doing my taxes, it requires damn much concentration
    ESTJ when I try to output a good image in order to get social leverage

    edit: I just listed my different faces, you list yours They may come in different situations and cover different types.

    I think no matter how much I try I resemble an INFP in all situations.

    ISFJ when in school generally, or I'm talking to someone with a position of authority over me.

    INTP if I'm analyzing/explaining something complex, or I'm in a really sarcastic and critical mood towards everything, especially if it's something related to social norms.

    INTJ if I'm being very direct about things and don't feel the need to mince words.

    INFP if I'm expressing my deeper emotions.

    ENFJ if I'm trying very hard to make a good impression.

    I'm not sure, though, and these are just guesses based on my perception of the types.

    ISFJ during school, cause I don't know anywhere there yet.
    ESTJ when people say "I hate my parents and I want to die".

    I am an ENFP.

    I resemble an INFP when I am especially contemplative, and often when writing, particularly when I am going through a time of self-growth and trying to work things through and understand them more fully. I am extroverted, but not strongly, so I suppose this is the type I am most similar to anyway.

    However, when I am writing a logical paper or essay, my suppose you could see a bit of a resemblance to an NT.

    Right now I am in charge of most of the organizational aspects of a household of people, most if not all of whom are Perceivers (including myself). However, since I am the one in charge of the organization, I sometimes find myself having to use functions and behave in a way that I normally associate with STJs (my opposite). It's...very interesting. I can do it, but it is clearly a learned ability and not an innate one.

    Interesting topic!

    While I am INTP at core, I can wear an NF face in social situations where I feel comfortable -- especially online, as I feel very confident in my writing ability and there is a buffer there between myself and the other people, so I don't have to emote physically. (Speaking, in real life, and having to emote tangibly is emotionally harder for me.)

    Why do I do it? Because I enjoy expressing myself that way sometimes, and I think it helps other people feel comfortable, and it is a way I can project that I care about people.

    Usually when I get tired, however, that's when I drop back to a flatter mood and can become blunt and drop the niceties. Then I am just looking for content resolution, not emotional cushion.

    As I wrote in my introductory thread, a former boss of mine assumed that I was an ISTJ because I was good at auditing files and because I had majored in German in college. Also, I have somewhat of a serious, cool demeanor, especially in the workplace.

    Why was German evidence for him? He said that if I excelled in such a subject, I must be "detail oriented," and naturally good at remembering those details. Actually, it took me years to get the grammar right, and I still make mistakes sometimes, much to the amusement of my German friends.
