    An extrovert who doesn't introspect at all has serious problems.
    Hmm... I think of introspective and introverted as being 2 different things. (Introspection meaning examining one's being, introversion meaning to be energized by internal world.)

    Well I certainly consider myself introspective in terms of examining one's own being, I think that may go hand-in-hand with Fi...I'm very in touch with what I want, what I like, what I dislike, and what I am better at.

    I'm a writer so I have to introspect quite a bit, whether I want to or not, and I spend a great deal of time thinking about what I'm seeing or reading.

    But I still thrive on externals, on input, so it seems easier for me as a Pe dom to "shift" out of a path or a set way of doing things and run off to something else.

    I also tend to try to come up with the easiest or more interesting way to do something rather than the safest or most structured way of doing things.

    Yeah, maybe TJ types are the best at career planning, but it seems to me that an Si dom or an Ni dom could "stay on track" even if they were an FJ.

    So I'm going to say that IxxJs and ExTJs probably win in terms of laying out a clear path for themselves, possibly, maybe. On average, not always.

    This is how I feel too. IMO, as long as you are doing what makes you happy and what you deem to be right for you at that time, you are successful. For some people that means staying in the same field or even the same job for a very long time, and for others that means changing up whenever they need to. Even for those of us who like to make plans and stick to them, those plans always need to be tweaked as things come up.
