    Question Grouping NTs and NFs

    When I think of similar MBTI types I myself thinking of the iNtuitives grouped like this:

    ENFPs & ENFJs
    INFPs & INFJs
    ENTPs & INTPs
    ENTJs & INTJs

    In other words, I group the E/I NFs together and the J/P NTs together. I find an ENFP is more similar to the ENFJs rather than the INFPs.

    Anyone else do this? Or perhaps with other types?

    Grouping via CF similarity(J/P) seems good. So, yes, why is this?

    In my experience, ENFPs are much more like INFPs than they are like ENFJs, once you scratch the surface. Actually, I don't see how they are alike at all besides both being extraverted. And INTPs and ENTPs never seem alike to me, online or in real life. I struggle to see what they do have in common, most of the time. But I generally view the various NFs and NTs as distinct types. It's easier for me to group SJs and SPs into groups, probably because of my own bias and personal experience.

    What would be your groupings?

    Like I said above, I don't view the types as groups. But if I really had to group them, I would go by dominant function rather than temperament.

    i don't have enough real life examples but from my online observation...i'd say no not so much...fi and fe are quite a lot more differentiating than e/i imo.

    I usually group by dominant function

    INFJ/INTJ = Ni
    ESTP/ESFP = Se

    etc


    just because they seem to be more similar acting in consistent ways. Whereas everyones lives are differnt a Ni dom will always be a Ni dom, an Se dom will always be a Se dom... etc

    Seems like a pointless exercise. Not sure why anyone would want to.
