    Default Single Greatest Strength and Weakness of Each Type

    List one of each only for each type. I'd imagine being somewhat specific would be better, but I don't think going big picture would get much backlash. Obviously, these are going to be slight generalizations, but such are the hazards of such a system.

    I figure this might be interesting not only in assessing the types in a larger context, but also to get a quick look at what the types like or dislike about each other from their own personal standpoints.

    Good - Formulate and argue an idea.
    Bad - Formulate and argue an idea.

    This seriously depends on what viewpoint one takes.
    If you are looking to go through life without friction?
    If you are in pursuit of knowledge/perfection?
    If you are in pursuit of happiness?
    If you are in pursuit of making a place for yourself?

    From my point of view, the only one I can really have great grounds to criticize is myself.
    If I am not representative of INTJs in general, to hell with it.
    My greatest weakness is perfectionism. It is also a tool.

    ENTP

    Pros:

    Clever
    Attractive
    Superior environmental awareness due to Ne.

    Cons:

    Too clever by half
    Attracts the wrong sort of attention
    Unsupervised intuition has been known to propel ENTPs into, like, here-come-the-TV-cameras kinds of trouble.

    We're the wild card, the prototype, the next-generation fighter jet (notoriously easy to crash)

    I am also profoundly affected by manic depression, and I think in many ways that inheritance (it's genetic, runs in families) is both my greatest strength and weakness. Anyone who disbelieves that mania is a superpower underestimates the infinitude of human craziness. Mania is another universe.

    If you want only 1 thing for each type, it becomes a HUGE generalization. But, for the sake of fun, here goes: S=Strength, W=Weakness

    ESTJ: S=Gets the job done. Period.
    W=Pretty much think they are perfect and super ethical and that nobody sees otherwise. Oh we see it, my friends. We see it.

    ISTJ: S=Have computer brains. Sometimes I'd rather have an ISTJ than a PC.
    W=Often miss the big picture - too focused on things like pencils, pocket calendars, saving 24 cents when filling up gas tank, etc. a) I'll buy you a whole box of pencils, stop worrying about it. b) I'm sorry that my plans changed and you had to cross out what you wrote on your calendar. c) I'll give you a dollar out of my pocket if you just fill up your tank at the more expensive gas station (by 24 cents). Then you'll have a net profit of 76 cents. It just soooooo doesn't matter. There are children dying of hunger and you're worried about a lost pencil.

    ESFJ: S=Nice, loyal, usually well-liked people.
    W=If your reasoning goes against theirs, then they'll try to get tough with you. Oh, and did I mention that their reasoning isn't that good?

    ISFJ: S=Nice, loyal, usually well-liked people.
    W=If you don't do something that they expected you to do (even if they never told you that they expected it), they'll either cry or have some kind of verbal fit.

    ESTP: S=Funny, entertaining, easy going, good company
    W=Selfish - they'll try to get their way at your expense and convince themselves that it's what you wanted.

    ISTP: S=Insanely mechanically inclined.
    W=Selfish - If it's between you and something else they feel like doing, you won't be hearing from them.

    ESFP: S=One of the most fun to hang out and talk with. Genuinely enjoy life.
    W=Try to argue too often like they know everything, but they can't argue worth a lick.

    ISFP: S=Enjoy life, fun to be around.
    W=Always put today's work off until tomorrow. And then the next day. And then the next day. Just quit your job and then you won't have to keep going through the ridiculous procrastination cycle every single week.

    ENFJ: S=great at organizing an event, getting everyone on the same page
    W=so busy making sure everyone is on the same page (and "politely" telling people what to do), that people end up having less fun at the event than the ENFJ thinks.

    INFJ: S=great at listening to people/having compassion
    W=don't really want to listen to people/have compassion

    ENFP: S=insanely creative when necessary
    W=rarely find anything "necessary"; just want to have fun all day.

    INFP: S=extremely caring and compassionate one day
    W=not so much the next day

    ENTJ: S=the best at having a big, N-type vision and actually carrying it out
    W=will run you over if you get in the way

    INTJ: S=crazy intelligent
    W=think they win every single argument/conversation/situation. Sorry, but you don't. Even if you did, who cares?

    ENTP: S=great, innovative ideas
    W=find it difficult to stay focused long enough to carry those ideas out

    INTP: S=have million dollar ideas all worked out in their head - to near perfection
    W=Don't want to talk to another human being for months on end. Same ideas stay in head for 35 years.
    NTJ's are the only types that have ever made me feel emo.
    ENP's are the only types that have ever made me feel like a sensor.

    I think the one of the weakness of ISTPs is sometimes you think we agree or disagree with you, when in reality, we really don't care.
    Weathergirl: District 38 is sunny. Slight rock showers this morning. Chance of rock showers into the afternoon—20 percent. District 39 is cloudy. Chance of rock showers this afternoon—10 percent.
    Edward: Bebop here here! Alright woo hoo!
    Weathergirl: Chance of rock showers today upgraded to 90 percent.
    Edward: Really.

    As an ENTP, I find ISTP indifference very upsetting. I don't know why. But I doubt I'm the only ENTP who feels this way.

    ISFPs

    Strengths

    They are so awesome at everything.

    Weaknesses

    Their awesome humilty means their awesomeness gets taken for granted.

    Act your age not your enneagram number.

    That's right.
