    I often view ENFJs as the sheep that is on fire and running toward the enemy. Then it lays over in the ditch with the other sheep for reassuring head pats.

    I too figured INTJs as wolves rather than sheep. When I got my result, I thought I had gotten the 'best' one. I don't visualize a chart and if I see everyone standing in a line, many types would be off standing alone somewhere.
    What a waste of life..

    I definitely do not see either ENTJ or INTJ (my other possibility) as 'the' type. I think they're both kind of odd. So much so, in fact, that there was a great sense of relief in finding out that these were personality types rather than manifestations of a psychological disorder/illness. I was very happy to discover that I wasn't a sociopath (or worse), and just a slightly less common type of female personality. I don't have a clue what goes into the making of an NTJ personality, but it's got to be a rather peculiar mix of genetics and environment. A world full of ENTJs and INTJs would be a scary place. I think 'the' type would have to be one that occurs frequently in the population.

    hmm......

    The world is full of SJs. -- SJs make the world go round.
    SJ can be considered 'the' type.
    SJs and NPs are taught to be SJs.
    Which means, SJs don't develop their inferior side.
    So, the majority of the world is an unbalanced type.
    But the world's still fine.

    Yet if it were all INTPs, we'd be a lot worse off...

    I'm derailing my own thread.

    Often a star was waiting for you to notice it. A wave rolled toward you out of the distant past, or as you walked under an open window, a violin yielded itself to your hearing. All this was mission. But could you accomplish it? (Rilke)

    I kind of think that it is possible to explore every function to the core and thus create "the type" that stands out above. Neither for good or bad though.
    I find every type as interesting and/or as powerful as the next. It all comes down to what values one keeps to run steadily over the wooden floor. Even if it has it's patches of rotten wood.

    If enfp's are anything like me; If there was an enemy, I'd talk myself out of it.
    And if that did not work, run.
    And if they then chose to threaten my loved ones, hit back more furiously than any demon they've seen before.
    Also, if I got cornered with enemies all around... I'd never ever plea for my life; It's their hands that grow bloody, not mine. Sure, with my blood, but I wouldn't be able to live with their blood in mine either.
    Why can't we all just be friends? (my naive side strikes again)

    Umm, I hope I kept to the threads original purpose. . .
    Open for interpretation.

    I don't even have friends right now because I can't put up with the moronic conversation topics people have.

    Exactly in a world of INTPs only the essentials would be discussed. Small Talk would be outlawed.
