    Why, ENTP of course. Like my buddy James Tiberius Kirk. I almost picked ISTJ just because no one else did. How come no one wants to be an ISTJ?
    "Space was big, and the boys from Earth were awed despite themselves by the things they found there: but worse, their science was in a mess. Every race they met on their way through the Core had a star drive based on a different theory. All those theories worked, even when they ruled out one another’s basic assumptions. You could travel between the stars, it began to seem, by assuming anything.”

    I chose ENFJ. Though any other ENxx would be good. All of the ENFJ's I've met were awesome people.

    I picked ENFJ today. Maybe this speaks to my self esteem to choose my opposite type? I think it would just be nice to try out a different skin at some point. I want to be charming/manipulative (Fe) for once! I want to get out of my head (E)! Be more decisive (J). The grass is greener on the other side, right?

    In another mood, I might choose to be an ENTP (creative, playful) or an ISFP (reflective but channeling that energy).

    On the other hand, it's so alien to imagine being another personality type in for the long haul. I'll probably scarcely be the same person.

    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.
    I get what you're saying, but I'm not sure it's necessarily the dissatisfaction with self that speaks to the N/S divide... Maybe it's like Ns are more likely to entertain the notion of changing their personalities, while Ss are more of the "type doesn't change, so therefore it's useless to ponder about it" and the work-with-what's-real-and-useful mindset?

    I kind of took a while with this, then I went with ENFJ. This type seems like it compensates enough for the INTJ shortcomings...without too radical of a change. I notice I have a bit of the "manipulator" thing in me that is usually identified with ENFJ's too.

    I picked ENTP.
    They have more energy than the INTP.
    Wasn't surprised to see that it has the most votes.

    We are.

    I chose ESFP. If I was more comfortable in crowds, I would RULE THE WORLD. So, just the extroverted version of myself.
