    Not necessarily. Total stereotype that EPs are going to "experience life" more. My mom is ESFP has definitely experienced life, and she has a kind of wisdom, but no, I don't consider her even close to being the wisest person I know. Life experience is useless if you lack the facilities to reflect upon it properly - of course, there are smarter ESFPs than my mother.

    The reason why I said INJs would fight over it is because I think both types are inclined to introspection, and also wanting to be right and in control.

    ooh ooh ooh, ooh ooh ooh
    INF's!!!

    Seriously, who else spends hours at a time on a regular basis reading books on inspiration, religion, philosophy, biographies, religion, travel, religion, etc

    Sure ENF can talk the good talk, and maybe the SFJ's as well, but when it comes to spending disgusting gobs of time reading books on "wisdom"-related topics, INF's FTW!!!

    caveat: reading books on wisdom doesn't necessarily make one wise, but it probably helps. And its gotta help more than going to parties and getting drunk and vomiting all of the time. which is what many of my college peers did. while I read lots of books

    life experience + books = life wisdom

    I don't think you can get complete wisdom from books.

    im pretty sure all types can share some wisdom of life that even the wisest type didnt understand. -> they have life wisdom from different areas, thus they cant be compared.

    Certainly. But the question is: Who *likes* analyzing life itself? (I mean surely those who like the activity will tend to excel in it.) I'd wager INTP's.

    I'm thinking Ti here. The problem with INTP's is the tendency to ignore the seemingly subjective but important attachments present in humanity. Ni Fe in INFJ's allows this depth.

    Introverted Intuitive TiFe's start slow...unlike EP's they lack experience at first...but they evolve into "super bearded men" later on.

    but the problem with intps is that our Fe is weak, so we dont get into definitive conclusions with it, Ti can analyze it from detached point of view, but it doesent mean that it would lead to any definitive conclusions, just possible ways it might be.

    i wrote about Fe/Ti but ended up erasing it after i gave it more thought, because there are problems with all Fe/Ti types also. For example Fe doms have Ti as 4th function, this leads in poor logical analysis whats happening around him. Also Ni or Si as main perceiving function can cause problems, Ni users living kinda in their own world, making their conclusions about it all too subjective and Si users stuck in how it has been and poor view of how things will go and possible lack of depth of it all. Entps looking too much into the future and seeing possibilities of how it might be or how it might go, estps living too much in the present moment. Istp having similar problems with estp, but having even lower Fe..

    Fi/Te users being too subjective with their F and too much concentration on facts with Te. I think out of Fi/Te users enfps might be on the top about this, but they got their weaknesses too.

    thats are just quick analyzing on the surface, so i hope no one gets insulted, because all of these types can come up from their weaknesses and this is exactly why i think none of the types got a upper hand, they just see different things

    Suffering makes people wise. It has nothing to do with type.
