    Default Tomboys

    Ok I hate that term, cause they're not boys. But a lot of the... ungirly girls I know are hard to type, as far as T/F goes. Most of the ones i've known have been both. Thoughts?

    type would depend on the tomboy in question. Do you have one in mind?

    I'm just generally wondering what types become tomboys.

    P girls? it's a far too general statement to encompass the differences between F/T, let alone N/S.

    It's pretty general to categorize one type although I think you would find a higher percentage of tomboys amongst STP women than some other types. From what I understand of the term it implies a kind of earthiness, directness, physicality, willingness to get your hands dirty, etc. That is something I would tend to associate with some combination of Se and Ti (which INFJs actually have come to think of it).

    My personality type could also be stereotyped in the opposite direction, but I have some tomboyishness in my personality as well. This is mostly because I was raised by a single mother, so I'm used to doing whatever needs to be done whether it's gathering/chopping wood, building a fire, figuring out what's wrong with my car, building furniture, etc. I enjoy working on a house as well and could enjoy building a house. It always surprises me when I find out some women avoid these things. I'm not good at (or interested in sports) though. My point is that environment and experience can bring out these qualities as much or moreso than an MBTI category.

    I know Tomgirls of almost everytype. INFJs whove shaved there heads to hide femininity while younger, tough girl ESTPs and INFPs who like hanging with the guys.

    estp, istp, infp (sorta) I've known. Don't know many girls well enough to type since most of my friends are male. also depends on your def of tomboy.

    Probably not a huge type correlation, I could see it being higher in SPs and NTs, but certainly not limited to them.

    my sister would call herself a tomboy...she's not really boyish...just not very girlie either and she's an isfj....probably not really type related all that much.
