    No, I thought I was ENTP 2 years ago, when I was still struggling with burnout, and couldn't do J-like stuff. It's not my real thing. ENTJ is, If I have to choose a best-fitting type. Perhaps I expressed myself unclearly.

    But ok, thanks for the examples in class, I'll have to respond better when there's time available.

    I found the questions inherent in the poll options intriguing... hope there is more serious response here, especially to role-playing on type forums...

    he he.... I think everyone knows my take on this one

    ok- not hardly anyone anymore come to think of it- damn, I'm old...

    pretending to be another type can be a legitimate form of social experimentation- especially in the old days when this site was even more N dominated than it is now!

    i dont think i'd last more than 3 posts in pretending to be an NT. I cant even fake it. but thought about how it'd be good experiment, faking all 16 types in videos and then ask people to vote for "the real me" one.

    Yeah, the forum has probably gotten twice the size or more, compared to what it was in your days.. but, we're believing these are your days too, not just those in the past, right?
