    Actually, you're right about the connotation. People normally use "xxxx" to mean:

    - "I don't know my type."
    - "I don't even know what a type is."
    - "I keep getting different results for my type."
    - "I don't want to be put in a box."

    Other people just insert a random four-letter word, as they see fit.

    “Pleasure to me is wonder—the unexplored, the unexpected, the thing that is hidden and the changeless thing that lurks behind superficial mutability. To trace the remote in the immediate; the eternal in the ephemeral; the past in the present; the infinite in the finite; these are to me the springs of delight and beauty.” ~ H.P. Lovecraft

    Well, I don't really think the E/I difference would be a big deal, but for the other 6 funtctions, I think those have more to do with your decision-making and how you perceive the world. Yes, you might be able to see all sides of an issue or problem better than others, but when it came down to actually making a decision I would imagine that the person would be going back and forth a lot trying to decide which side to follow and weighing the pros and cons.

    On the contrary, while you believe God is not here I believe God is omnipresent

    Why would they be any more indecisive than anyone else? It's not like you use every function for every situation. I don't see an XXXX as someone who tries to use all 8 functions (Ne/Ni/Fe/etc) at the same time, in every situation. They'll favor certain functions, depending on the situation.

    I've only experienced rapidly changing preferences as negative, and constantly near 50-50 ties as positive. Changing preferences made me doubt be previous decisions and anxious of my current integrity.

    I do believe that everyone, even well-rounded persons, have a dominant function.

    What I meant by the notation was that perhaps the types were unknown because they broke even.
