    But, I still have this laziness, even though I make plans and time tables, I rarely follow them completely. I love to postpone things a little bit and yeah, some P stuff is still alive in me. I'm not sure what to think. Is it even possible?
    That sounds like me. I'd say you're a J.

    P/J change completely all your functions. I don't really see how you can go from, say, Ne-Ti-Fe-Si to Te-Ni-Se-Fi.

    I consider myself to be quite hardcore P (it takes me ages to take any decision, I want to leave everything as more open-ended as possible), but I'm very organised and I always get things done and meet deadlines.

    Being able to cope does not mean your personality has turned upside down, especially if it's something you recognise that you've learned with the age.

    Of course, it's possible that you've mistyped yourself in first place.

    Read about the functions. That should shed some light.

    Well a P can be well organized if forced to be by your life. I'm currently living on my own, I'm a shop steward at work, and I run the local branch of a political party, all of which forces me to be relatively organized and intolerant of time wasting. These things I don't do for fun or because of an inner drive because I love organization, but because they are what the circumstance demands of me.

    However my personal space is completely disorganized, my approach is still a laid back one relative to the situation, and I'm energized by deadlines, not scared by them. More importantly, is the issue of functions order. I can distinguish myself quickly from someone with Ni as their dominant percieving function - they have that brooding, romantic core, which gives them a great intensity even if they are an NT. However I'm stand-offish and analytical, responding spontaneously in terms of social interaction. I think XNXJ's know they are XNXJ's from the beginning, they have that a sense of almost priestly "other-worldishness" which is hard to explain without knowing them.

    Or do I have XNXJ's all wrong? :s I admit I could be wrong as MBTI still confuses me on many aspects.

    Well socionics argues that we posses all 8 functions. I tend towards that view right now, 4 conscious, and 4 shadow, and there are some within that developing the view that situations can force different functions to the foreground. I tend towards that view right now.

    Otherwise how do you explain an ISXP for example? Either they have no Fi or no Ti? I find that a hard one. It seems more as if the two functions would operate as a unity, but with one dominant over the other.

    Pretty dialectical, "unity of opposites" and all that.

    I guess that's it. I just like to adapt to the situation maybe.

    What's interesting, I just asked my English teacher back home to write a recommendation letter for a scholarship and she wrote smth like:

    She's a student that needs to be occupied until a total exhaustion, otherwise she's so energetic and sparkling, that she wont stop asking her smart questions to the teacher and her classmates. It means she's full of energy and always wants to be involved in some kind of process. If she's interested in the task she will do it quickly and the result will be creative and successful. But if she's not really interested in the task she may have small difficulties to overcome her laziness, but she's a girl who's goal-oriented (purposive?) and she knows what does she want to achieve. She's socially active, helpful and she respects work in a team. I highly appreciate her initiative and willingness to succeed with the goals she has made.


    I guess, sounds more like an ENTj.
    Oh yeah?

    My personal place is fairly organized, it's definitely not perfectly neat, but anyway I could bring my friends in my room at any time, because it's never that bad that I should be ashamed of it. I like to call it ''organized-ly disorganized''. And here since I'm not with my parents and live with another family I'm totally not forced to have an organized place, because my hostsister, well compared to me she's a classical P, especially you can see it by looking at her room .

    Well I've had this sense always, I just thought I was ENTP not xNxJ

    The thing that really confuses me, is the functions. I'm 100% sure I had Ne before I left, but now it's either gone away for a seasonal sleep or just went on exchange year with Ni
    Oh yeah?

    I don't say I'm an expert on ENTPs or ENTJs, but this actually sounds more ENTP to me. "Energetic, sparkling, won't stop asking smart questions, full of energy, wanting to be involved in process, doing tasks only when they're interesting"... That certainly sounds very, very Ne-dom to me, and I know at least two ENTPs and a few ENFPs who are like that. Perhaps you're just an ambitious ENTP? Why not?

    By the way, things like tidiness of your room or leaving early for important appointments definitely don't decide if you're a P or a J. Your thought process does. Don't let the stereotypes get to you too much.
    Her head hung down
    Gazed at earth, finally keen,
    As the rabbit at the stoat,
    Till the earth was sky,
    Sky that was green,
    And brown clouds passed
    Like chestnut leaves along the ground.

    Enneagram 7s love lists, and are frequently ENTPs. Not to mention, they make plans and don't stick to them.

    +1 , Definitely sounds ENTP.
