    Although when walking into any new situation Se is all over the place too
    From reading your posts I would say you were Ne dominant, but only you know you the best.


    So ENxP

    Then if you could decide which judging function feels most comfortable for you, you would have your two foremost functions.

    My functions don't line up with any particular type, either. My functions are Te/Fi/Ne/Se. I'm probably just a mutant.

    I settled for ENTJ because Te is my dominant judging function, I'm not an introvert (so I'm not INTJ), and I'm definitely not an SJ (so I'm not ESTJ).
    "We grow up thinking that beliefs are something to be proud of, but they're really nothing but opinions one refuses to reconsider. Beliefs are easy. The stronger your beliefs are, the less open you are to growth and wisdom, because "strength of belief" is only the intensity with which you resist questioning yourself. As soon as you are proud of a belief, as soon as you think it adds something to who you are, then you've made it a part of your ego."

    To my way of thinking, knowing the functions for one's self is the whole point to MBTI/Jung's personality systems. The functions are the way to learn how we use our intelligence and where our weaknesses are and such. A tool for self discovery. Focusing on function rather than behavior seems the best use for the system. Otherwise(and we've all done it) just get too much into pidgeon holing people. Only the person in question knows their true preferences. When we type people from the outside, it's all just guesses.

    My opinion: We'd be better off if Keirsey were born before Jung or Meyers. Throw the functions in the trash, they are extraneous and problematic.

    Hm, I just know that I am ENTP word for word on any given discription....although I often get frusterated with the interpretations of where the behavior comes from the overall discription is dead on.

    Yet somehow my functions never align.

    I guess not everyone fits into such a box.

    Tests only tell you what you value, because when you answer questions you're subconsciously painting yourself into (under?) what you perceive to be a "good" light.

    Care about the functions if they interest you, which they should.. but don't obsess over your type. Just learn about the functions.. they're cool.

    Functions are a lot like Astrology in actual practice. You tell someone "you are x, that's why you do this," and they say "oh yeah, that makes sense." Yet you can't usually decipher someone's functions without prior knowledge. Think about it.

    The tests just measure what a person's preferences are, not how well they've developed any preferences.
