    Without defining that N types cannot attain or experience self satisfaction with their own type, then it is not as he originally put it a "tell tale" indicator.

    As far as IQ goes, I feel that the testing used is fundamentally biased, and not a true measure of intelligence at all. (So saying, my IQ is in the 130 - 140 range. Certainly not exceptional, but I get by)
    So are you actually wanting to pick another type or are you saying that you need to utilize your auxilary more? I would think that ESTPs sometimes may know that they have to tone down, however are they saying they would like to be ISTP?

It is only S?

    None of the other N types can ever decide they want to try and accept themselves as they are and work to be the best they can be as they are?
    I am saying that this topic has come up more than once by intuitives and I never get why you want to be something else.

    MBTI is about preferences, so if you prefer to be something then that is what you are under this system. If you determine that you are a type, are you saying that you now prefer to be something else or are you simply saying I need to work on a certain function?

    When I am home and at peace, I would not want to be anything other than what I am. It's comfortable. If I have to turn on the charm in public or do something that calls for utilization of another function (more importantly a function that is foreign to me) then I don't wish to be a type that uses that dominant function. I realize that I can achieve only so much, and as Lenore Thomson reminds us, we cannot be proficient in using our weaker functions therefore it's futile to work on them since at best our development will appear infantile.

    Sure it is. Here's how I read "?"'s argument:

    No S wants to be a different type.
    Some Ns want to be a different type.
    Therefore, wanting to be a different type is indicative of N.

    Of course, not wanting to be a different type is then inconclusive, but that does not make wanting to be a different type any less of an indicator.

    ... Assuming one buys the first premise, of course, which brings us back to:

    Wow! If I could be another type, I would be an INFJ as I admire their dedication to humanity. I was absolutely amazed to see that after I voted, the highest was ENTJ. I think the reason that I am amazed.....is that you never can tell what kind of response you will get when you tell people that you are an ENTJ...especially if you are a woman.

    I voted INFP, cause there is no other type I would be able to handle being, and because we're awesome. (it would have been cool as hell though if the vote thingy yelled at me that I couldn't vote for INFP because I was one, but I digress)

    Sorry if I skewed the vote.

    Ugh. Believe me people: unless your dream career is to be a charismatic gnostic religious visionary or something, stay away from the INFJ type !!
