    Interesting, I would think the "precision" associated with INTP is really more an ISTP trait. Precision is a detail-oriented task which marries Ti and Se. The INTP, who is backed up with Ne, would have less concern with precision and more concern for innovating.

    The ISTP is a precise tinkerer, where the INTP is the precise innovator.

    Boba Fett is indeed an ISTP.

    Improvisation is something an ESxP would be better at. The ISTP thinks first before improvising.

    Are you saying I'd make a good Boba Fett-style bounty hunter, htb? I'll give that some thought. (Or are you just pulling the tiger's tail?)

    I have to say I do have a "hunter" character in one of my science fiction stories, but I wrote him as an ISTP. If he were a curious but absent-minded INTP, I'm afraid he'd end up being more of a danger to himself than to others. He'd enjoy the idea of the chase but would most likely want to devise a way to conduct it from the seclusion of his base of operations: A flying, remote-control killer robot? Actually, that's not a bad idea.

    I didn't say that I didn't say it. I said that I didn't say that I said it. I want to make that very clear.

    FDG, you seem like an ESTP to me based on your posts. That's just my two cents.

    Let's just say that in spite of Uber's interesting counterpoints, I find INTPs to be "ingenuously surreptitious."

    htb,

    "ingenuously surreptitious"--Is that not an oxymoron? Or should I assume that you meant "ingeniously surreptitious?" (Don't want to put words in your mouth.)

    So, you think INTPs are sneaky snakes, huh? Well then, you'd better keep out of the grass.

    FDG, I don't have a strong opinion about your type, but here's three points for ESTP in my view:

    - Post #12 in this thread. I see an ESTP as much more likely than an ENTJ both to 1) successfully induce a bitter ex-couple to become friends or 2) take credit for having done so even if not quite accurate.

    - Post #21 in the same thread. The ENTJs I know take into account what is not explicitly said whereas I've seen ESTPs present obvious (and hence, if unmentioned, implicitly inapplicable) solutions apparently with complete faith that they were being novel and helpful.

    - You think the ISFJ is your best match. I can see a male ENTJ/female ISFJ match working out nicely with regard to traditional gender roles but I don't see either being romantically fulfilled in such a match. ESTP/ISFJ on the other hand...

    It is, care of a typo, but pretty amusing nonetheless.

    Bayes' theorem does imply that the claim of ESTP would require extraordinary evidence.

    I'll chalk your "make 'em be friends" advice up to ENTJ patronization then.

    No. My dad is the poster child for ENTJ, and he dresses casually all the time unless the situation calls for formallity. He looks sharp, but not because of his clothes.
