    I try not to type people I know. It's not that helpful to me.

    These are purely gut reactions, based on my heavily biased experiences (or lack of experience with ESXX types)

    ENFP: They seem super sweet, all the ones here are very agreeable, but I'm not sure that I know any in meatspace, at least not well.

    INFP: Creative and lovely, but the flaky/moody young ones can get on my nerves so it's best to limit the amount of time I spend with them.

    ENFJ: ENFJs always seem really supportive, I have an ENFJ friend who somehow always manages to be there for me no matter how bitchy I am. She can be really annoying, and we butt heads a lot which is kind of funny more than anything. Also I've never met anyone so naturally perfect for being a mom.

    INFJ: Being with them is an odd combination of awesome and creepy. INFJs generally seem to understand me, and vice versa. I once made the mistake of dating a moderately crazy one, but it was a learning experience, and we're still friends.

    ESTJ: I'm not familiar with any. I think they are the people in real life who don't really talk to me (I just graduated high school though, so the majority of my experience with people is filtered through that environment)

    ISTJ: My hetero life partner is an ISTJ. I can't really get theoretical with her, but I've rarely had such a natural friendship with anyone. When I don't know ISTJs well, I don't really care either way about them, but at least they don't push any of my buttons.

    ESFJ: I think I dated a male of this type once. He's really sweet and was always very good to me...but too emotionally needy. I have a real soft spot for this type, but I think it's best kept platonic.

    ISFJ: Same problem with ISTJs' lack of interest in my bizarro scientific pursuits, with the added emotional needs that I don't really know what to do with. They make pretty good minions though, and they've got a certain cuteness that just makes me want to mother them. And order them around.

    ENTP: I've got a crush on like every ENTP I meet.

    INTP: The ones I've known in real life were mostly male and kind of awkward to hang out with (conversation! it is a thing!). I have mad love for the ones here though.

    ENTJ: I have to be careful around older ENTJs because if we end up in any kind of debate they usually just talk over me and defeat me by sheer force of will. I have a lot of fun with the ones my age though.

    INTJ: They're pretty weird honestly. I don't think I've ever met another INTJ that didn't kind of creep me out, other than my dear old dad, who I suspect is also INTJ.

    ESTP: Don't know any in real life, and would probably just run away if I did.

    ISTP: I know an ISTP girl, and I love the combination of adventurousness and practicality. We share a similar temperament, but not one that is conducive to any kind of close mental or emotional connection. Also the way she drives scares me. Not sure about the guys, but I imagine they're ok.

    ESFP: I'm sure I've known a lot of female ESFPs and don't particularly click with them. I would probably avoid the boys too, although I suspect that both genders are a lot of "fun".

    ISFP: I have mixed feelings about the one ISFP I know in real life, even though he's one of my best friends. So the fact that I like them even when I hate them probably attests to the fact that I could get along with mature ones reasonably well.

    ESTJ: They can seem very smart and admirable, but then they get too bossy & judgmental. I find they laugh me off as "odd" more than I care for. Generally, I don't interact on any deep level with these. We go through life on parallel paths that never intersect.

    ISTJ: A little too uptight with keeping things orderly, but I find them surprisingly caring about people, and they can have a great dry sense of humor. Most of the ones I know are men. We almost never have similar interests and I don't form close relationships with them.

    ESFJ: Relationships tend to stay very surface with them. They can be so warm & friendly, but there's a disconnect in perspective that is hard to bridge. I always feel like I am dealing with a gossipy housewife, no matter what they actually do for work. I can't think of any ESFJ men I know....

    ISFJ: If they care a lot about you, then they can be incredibly nurturing and encouraging and fiercely loyal. If they don't care much, then they can just be really annoying. I get the same domestic vibe as I get from ESFJs, but more gentle. ISFJ men can be charmingly earnest. The sense of humor is pure cheese though.

    ESTP: They can seem so great, right up until the knife cuts into the flesh....
    Most of the ones I've known are sales people or dumb jocks, so I often get a manipulative or meathead vibe. I get the uneasy feeling that the ones who like me just want to use me. I know one who is pretty cool though, but he may be an ISTP. I do like their spontaneity and how they have the guts to just go for something.

    ISTP: The ones I've known well were actually very friendly for SP introverts, and they had a great sense of adventure, spontaneity, and a lot of creative talent and/or technical skill. The downside is they can seem immature, overly impulsive, and too into the physical realm for my taste (although it often results in the guys having great bodies). Because of that, the relationship always feels shallow to me. The women ISTPs tend to be too tom-boyish for me. I'm really girly, and tom-boyish girls get too judgmental of traditionally feminine traits sometimes.

    ESFP: I have some close ESFPs in my life, and it works as long as our Fi don't clash. They can be too dramatic and bossy at times, but they're also very fun and loyal. I find them very genuine for the most part. I get annoyed with their hedonism though and sometimes wish they'd act as smart as I know they are.

    ISFP: I don't know too many IRL, even though I went to design school, because we don't click. The ones I have met are very artsy of course, and we often have similar interests and seem like we'd be great friends on paper, but Se & Ne seem to clash. It's like we're similar & dissimilar in all the wrong ways. I tend to be more intellectual also, and I think that screams "nerd" to them. On the other hand, some of them seem painfully "cool" to me.

    ENFP: I generally like them a lot because they seem like someone I'd like to be (the more outgoing, less inhibited version of me). Like ESFPs, I get frustrated when they lose their sense of right and wrong and Fi values get all distorted in the name of external pleasure. They usually like me also, as I'm a more level-headed and insightful version of them, but I find they can also get very annoyed by my introversion. I think because they feel similar to me, they don't accept me as introverted, but unfairly write it off as being unfriendly or snobby in some situations.

    INFP: I get along pretty well with most INFPs and the smoothness & stimulation of the conversation is refreshing. INFP men give me a buddy feeling though. I feel like I met my fraternal twin sometimes. I don't think it could ever be romantic. Occasionally, I meet the INFP who is too self-absorped and that is a turn-off.

    ENFJ: For the most part, I love these guys. Some of my best guy friends are these. It's unusual for me to click quickly with someone and feel close fast, but when I do, then odds are it is with an ENFJ. Second only to an ENFP friend I had, they've been the closest to giving that "partner in crime" dynamic. The main frustrations I have is when they rely too much on Fe and can feel shallow/insincere, because like EXFPs, I usually can tell when they have more depth & intelligence than what they are showing.

    INFJs: Don't know any IRL really. Online and in the public eye, I think they are pretty awesome, witty, and insightful. I have a feeling we'd either really click or clash. I think INFPs tend to admire INFJs more than the other way around too. Sometimes I do find INFJs a little too self-righteous and critical.

    ENTPs: I only know a few, most notably my dad. They're usually very smart, talented, and have a good sense of humor, but also can be too arrogant, condescending and extremely into themselves. It can seem that NOTHING is ever taken seriously too. Ultimately, their abrasive side & levity can make me retreat into my shell, so I don't usually connect with them.

    INTPs: After ENFXs, I connect the best with them. If the INTP is healthy and balanced, then they can seem very smart, funny, and interesting. It seems the conversations can go on forever, and they have the depth I crave and often miss in extroverts. On the other hand, if they slip into an unhealthy pattern of belligerence and condescension, then it can go south very quickly. I can be too sensitive for them, and they can be too incompassionate for me.

    ENTJs: I suspect my aunt may be one. If so, then they can be very funny, independent, smart and interesting. They also can be hypocritical, stubborn, and downright mean. I find their pliable morals and insistence on having their way a turn-off. My aunt LOVES quiet people, and if that's how all ENTJs are, then that is pretty cool. Besides the morality issue, I could see myself clicking with one.

    INTJs: Like ISFPs, they can seem like good friends on paper, but we don't click. I often end up on first dates with these guys that go nowhere. Some are incredibly hilarious and interesting. I like their irreverent humor, but it can also cross the line. The guys have a tendency for misogynistic chips on their shoulders . They also seem to have trouble grasping that someone can be sweet and smart, so they write off an INFP like me as a simple fluffy bunny too fast. That is annoying to me of course, because I'm a lot more complex than that.

    Default perspective?

    These all come from the people in my real life. I made them all take the MB test ;-) heheh they totally all caved

    ENTP: great advice to me, good taste, complains, and generally can be a jerk and likes to agitate in conversations for fun. Can't spend alone time with them unless I am asking for advice and get them off the snark train. Socially yes they are fun.
    ENTJ: worked with one as my boss-never again! Burned the bridge with me completely and that never happens with me! Another ENTJ (with 40% F) in life is a close friend although a little "cold". But he is definitely a great advice giver, lives out loud, driven, and listens well and I just somehow know he wouldn't burn me like the only other ENTJ because his actions show he cares about my feelings even if he doesn't show his all the time.
    INTJ: moth to flame with a male INTJ even though he argues the hell out of some things which is also fun to imagine turned on us scattered ENFJ's. Someone with focus, intelligence and intensity (like our Fe burn!).Fascinating!! when he actually appears in public with mutual friends. But I know that he in no way would work long term being a hermit reading, on the computer, working,working more, talking at me about technology, watching transformers...Also shows like -12 on emotion scale. Are you alive? ENFJ's need some emoting. some will do...His hug to me was the most uncomfortable hug I have ever received and took knowing him a LONG time.hahahaha (INTJ's you are not normal!) A girl INTJ was a aggressive lawyer but able to turn off being serious around me. Still not normal unless consciously went into "social" mode by choice decided to relax and listen.
    ISTJ- my father is this and he is emotionally not expressive at all. Great with money and self preservation as a way of showing love. Private, very consistent, loyal, but wants me to learn by stepping out myself. He was a very supportive father in being there practically (every time) but not verbally affectionate by nature.
    INFP- my sister is this and she drives me bonkers with low self esteem (and she is like 30). BUt her sweetness always makes me forget the next time I see her (which is usually a while in between because she is hermit-ish) My friend for the past 2 years has been an INFP but the private-ness and serious withholding of feeling is a problem that may defeat the friendship. She also never initiates or expresses emotion verbally. I also find Fi people selfish by default so it is hard to not change INFP's for me even though they have a depth of conversation that is rare and keeps me coming back.
    ESFP- little flaky and won't say what they want to when mad. That is frustrating. Seem needy with the 2 I know can't use their head in a relationship to save their lives. Make huge mistakes in who they date without thinking about the quality of the person at ALL! I feel like I need to teach them a lot.
    ENFJ's: I have met 2 other ENFJ's IRL. felt competitive with the male one immediately and resorted to negative puns aimed at each other subtly. Got under my skin and felt superior to me! No thank you! The other girl I appreciate because she will be open, sweet, talk about things I find interesting in general, and plan socially which takes the burden off me being the sole social planner around! Thank you! She is also a bit narrow and religious and not able to be around other views without getting uncomfortable.
    ESTJ: Nice socially and our values tend to align. A little to hands off in the way they organize people and tend to seem a little not caring because they stop short of completion in my opinion on finishing a job with people. Needed in society. Pessimistic also and probably misunderstood me mostly.
    INFJ: Know one in real life and her moral stance made me feel judged all the time (she may not have meant it) but generally was great with children and is a teacher who was moody when she came home. Always needed time alone to get out of her bad moods but was nice a little once given time. The sedond one I know is so moody and annoying because she is like being around Eeoyre. She complains and always wants to hang one-on-one and that can't be my main grouping. Sorry but I am an extrovert so learn that I can't always be one-on-one. She didn't like that at all.
    ISFP/ISTP: one friend, she is skeptic and good to ask questions and opinions to. She is often needing to be alone and I know it isn't personal it just DOES not make sense to me that she can be so detached and she is a reporter/newspaper editor so she is naturally objective and tested ISTP on a second mb test I made her take. Not someone who I could be close with or my emotion would overwhelm them and my fast pace too.
    INTP:: INTP's please please buy a clue? Attracted for sure to them once they notice anyone around them they come after me (usually like months after I notice them...) and have been asked to commit by 2 (I made them take the test! hehehe). Unflinchingly determined once they decided to date me but it couldn't work. The angry words once said (that they had no idea they said) are like strikes and you got 3 outs before you knew it. Also by a normal outfit? For real once tried to meet me out at a fancy bar in tennis shoes, t, and jeans! Embarrassing! Also the second one who asked to date me was boring. Wanted me to stay in on weeknights and do mellow things...I wanted to be out doing things with people...E/I scale was too different but he did know how to not hurt my feelings while being T. Dang it!

    ENFP - Good people, I generally get along well with them. They have good ideas, and can be very agreeable.

    ENTJ - The ones I know are very disciplined, and no-nonsense. I get along with them in many ways, but we sometimes clash over work-related things.

    ENTP - Cool people, fun to be around, and can be very thought-provoking. Usually seem like they're in good moods, and they are laid back.

    ESFJ - Caring people, I usually have no problems with them. Can sometimes be overly emotional though. They are very kind.

    ESFP - Very very fun people, great to be around at pretty much all times. I like them.

    ESTP - Fun people, I get along with them really well, usually witty and fun-loving.

    INFJ - Great people, I get along with them great, very intuitive, sometimes overly emotional but usually great to chat with.

    INTJ - Good people, logical. We sometimes clash but at other times, they can be very interesting people.

    INTP - Very quiet, we don't get in each other's way. We usually get along very well.

    ISFJ - Good people, sometimes take things the wrong way, but usually I get along with them well.

    ISFP - They make up most of the people I know. Easy to get along with, simple and usually reserved people. Get along with them the best, we usually click.

    ISTJ - I only know one ISTJ that I've confirmed. We can get along if we have similar interests. Have good common sense. Sometimes they are too structured.

    ISTP - Good people, they usually don't get in my way, which I like. Can initiate fun activities too, which is always a good thing. We get along well.

    ESTJ, ENFJ, INFP - don't know a single person IRL.

    Hahahah.. I didn't see this until just now. Thanks Stellar

    ESTJ - Some of the best people to be friends with, both guys and girls (Not as a boss!). We seem to have a mutual admiration for each other. I'm always so amazed at how much they can get done in a day, and they always seem intrigued by my go-with-the-flow attitude. They really take care of the people they love.

    ESFJ - They're always so -giving-! Again, they really take care of those they love. My mom is an ESFJ... I admire how people automatically take to her and feel comfortable around her. And they have these random streaks of spunk that just cracks me up... it's so cute.

    ISTJ - They're more fun than they have a reputation for. The ISTJ I know has super high goals, and always seems to accomplish them. Respect!

    ISFJ - My sister-in-law is an ISFJ... She is very sweet, and a wonderful mother. She also knows how to stand her own in arguments with my INTJ brother. She's very nurturing. As for guy ISFJs, we have a weird dynamic. We argue a lot, but we always seem to connect as friends well.

    ESTP - Guys: Awesome. The more outspoken, blunt version of me. We always connect instantaneously. We have a deep understanding and mutual admiration for each other. I always admire how -everyone- seems to get along with them immediately, and act pretty much themselves. Girls: Again, awesome. Outgoing and spunky. The ESTP girl I know is a little more in-your-face than the ESTP guy I know, as STP seems more typically a guy type (Trust me.. I know.). She's fun, and always the life of the party. Always blunt and honest.

    ESFP - I've come across a few, and they seem like super fun people.. however, there's something about our type dynamic that keeps us from ever becoming close friends. They're a little much for me, I think.

    ISFP - The feely version of me. We always get along great. We have fun, spontaneous adventures, and I always look to them for how I should approach things more sensitively. They always offer very diplomatic advice. They really are loyal to the people they care about.

    ENFP - Whew. Always interesting. They're all over the place! We -always- have fun together. They're so different from me, and I'm very interested in what they have to say. I've learned a lot from them, and they really wear their name as "The Inspirer" well. I seem to have a magnetic draw to them. I respect the advice they give, and often use them as a guideline to balance out my inferior functions (Fi, Ne, etc).

    ENTJ - We get along great as friends. More mutual respect here. I really admire their go-get'um attitude and how they can just make things happen. They're so ambitious! However, they're the only type I ever feel the need to parent. They see things in black and white too much sometimes, and I frequently have to play devil's advocate and point out other perspectives. Thankfully, when they're in good-humored moods, they don't seem to mind my advice, and actually take it to heart. I've learned to only give advice when they ARE in these moods...

    ENTP - Barrels of fun. We always manage to paint the town red together. They're endless sources of amusement... And we're always laughing our asses off. I absolutely -love- them as friends. However, I've learned the hard way that we were only meant to be -friends-. Turns out I can get slightly irritatable when I have a hyperactive ENTP boyfriend endlessly using he Ne: "Wouldn't be weird if this and this and this happened? I'd do this and this and then I'd be like that and this..." ..........

    INTJ - Always looked up to them. Both my dad and oldest brother are INTJs. I wish I had their strategic ability. However, we never seem to have close relationships, even if we respect each others' differences.

    INTP - Ah, my intuitive cousin. We're -very- much alike. We understand each other pretty well. We are generally interested in the same things, just on different aspects of that thing. We're perfect roommates.

    INFJs: Always easy to read. Either fairly interesting and easy to relate to, or a depressing reminder of what kind of stupid things I could have valued if my situation had been different.

    INTJs: Easy to read. Extremely provocative, at least to me. I pretty much either love them or hate them... they always get a strong reaction. Subjectively, I'd say INTJs feel like an inside-out version of me.

    ENTPs: Fairly easy to read. They can throw me off a little at first, but once they "click," I usually get them. They tend to be relaxing via their openness, funny, and easy to relate to. They feel like a "mirror" version of me, flipped horizontally and vertically.

    ENFPs: Harder to read. They're interesting and passionate. They're easy enough to get along with, but they have a combination of intensity and crudeness that keeps me on edge. I'd have to say I like them, though.

    INTPs: Very similar to ENTPs, but with less of a connection. I can still relate to them with relative ease if I put my mind to it, but it takes more work and isn't as natural.

    INFPs: Worst connection of all N types. I feel as if I constantly offend them without meaning to. They constantly grate on my nerves as well. There are a few I like, but the majority of them I don't. Five of the ones I liked later turned out to be ISFP, ENFP, INTP, INTJ, and INFJ. Hard to believe that one letter makes such a difference...

    ENFJs: They can be a lot like ENTPs when things are going well. Plus, there's an additional layer of connection I don't get with ENTPs. So it can be pretty good. The only thing that tends to bother me is the way they treat my IxTx friends sometimes, pulverizing them with unjustly applied Fe. It makes me sick to watch them subjugate Ni to Fe. It feels like the psychological equivalent of watching a bully hit a guy in a wheelchair. *shudder* It seriously strains, if not breaks, our friendship most of the time.

    ENTJs: Pretty much an ENFP clone with better organizational and leadership skills, from my perspective.

    ISFPs: Fairly easy to read. They're always interesting to talk to, as they have similar concerns to myself, and yet have completely different perspectives on them. They feel different from myself, yet somehow similar. They make up for their lack of raw intellectual depth with a certain way of just... being there with you, paying attention, caring. They often possess good instincts and unconscious wisdom.

    ESTPs: Some of them have an unnerving intensity that bugs me. Others just have this really laid-back, calm attitude towards everything. They're both willing to take risks, but for different reasons. The first type seems to feel a need to "prove" something, and the second just seems to causally disregard the danger, or not even think of it. Also, the first type will get mad and insult me if I point out the danger, and the second type will stop, think about it, and either change their mind or convince me it's not a real problem. Needless to say, I like the second type better.

    I haven't met enough of the other types to make any judgments, so that will have to wait.
