    I decided to change the wording for the introverts so that is seems more like they are in control.

    I don't think there is anything wrong with any of this, it suits the natural order, but I'm curious what your experiences are with this...or if you just think I'm full of shit.



    Oh yeah, and I was motivated to write this post while browsing some random INFJ thread (it was like two seconds ago and I already forgot what it was). All the INFJs I know are very controlling (see: like to control, but suck at it), and they would make it very overt, like..."I'm your master." No joke. Needless to say, I derived much pleasure from putting them in their place via subtle mental manipulation.
    Correct.
    Here we find that the typology has got another continuum.

    The continuum the MBTI does not differentiate at all.

    Stong control equates strong drive = ESTJ.
    Weak control equates weak drive = ESTJ.

    One type?
