    I think you're more likely ENTP than ENFP.

    When it comes time to make a decision...
    • Is your first inclination to rely on logic--if/then, precedents you're setting, cause/effect, definitions... (Ti
    • Or do you think about the people involved--how will each one be affected, who will be upset, how much conflict will there be (not that conflict is always seen as bad....), how much does this make my gut churn if I really hope everyone will be happy.


    In other words, go back to the basics. T-F is about how we make decisions. When my kids for example want an exception to a rule, tehy come to me: "Mom, I had three tests at school today. Can't I PLEASE have an extra hour of TV?" My little F heart thinks Oh, the poor dears. Of course they need the break. Then T kicks in and I think about what happened the last time I made an exception to house rules.

    If they try the same thing with Dad (T), he's "The rule is the rule. Deal with it. go shoot baskets if you need to have fun." Then he might think, Golly, Iused to get wiped out by tests. Maybe they're too tired and really need that half hour. Still, I'm more likely to bend, he's more likely to stick to the rules. We both act out of pattern--it's called balance and maturity--but that first inclination is the big clue.

    Who was that pointed at?

    To edcoaching, my response to my family would be like your husband, but at work to my employees I would be like you.

    I prefer to be a utilitarian, but if I gotta do what I gotta do, then I will do it.
