Do you consider it an asset to be T or do you wish that you were a F?
I consider it an asset (a HUGE asset when I was suddenly dumped into the chemistry department with no warning). I like being the office problem-solver and detective. And I don't mind being considered a little odd.
Are you conciously trying to develop your F skills?
Been there, done that. At my first review at my first real job, my supervisor noted that some of the clientele found me a bit cold. So, noted and fixed. Well, it wasn't quite that simple but I worked on putting more warmth into my interpersonal interactions. After a while it became more natural. About the only thing that I find overly draining anymore is the occasional dog-and-pony show anyone being paid by public funds is obligated to attend. I can do it, but afterwards is a cross between being exhausted and trying to come down off a high.
If you are a parent, do you think you are less nurturing?
I think I was a very good parent. Probably more so at the point my son became a functioning human entity with his own opinions. We have an excellent relationship. He's one of the few people I with whom I can really do that give-and-take humorous debating that leaves people on the sidelines making bets.
What about romance?
You would ask that. Right now, I'm content. But between my ex and current friend, I took a 20 year hiatus. It probably would have been longer (say... the rest of my life?) if ENTJs were not so persistent. Even then, it was 2 1/2 months between the point I let him close enough to make an offer and my decision to accept. So, I kind of feel as though I was rescued, in a way. Oddly, once there's someone in your life, alternate possibilities seem to appear out of the woodwork....
