    So, you've figured your opposite type. What you think of them?
    I think INFPs are pretty awesome, even if kind of shrouded in mystery.

    Do you feel that type is shrouded in mystery?

    Ha! Yeah. They're pretty self-contained and reserved unless they trust you. Even then, they're self-contained and reserved compared to some of us.

    What strikes as the oddest thing in them?

    Their ability to fantasize/enjoy fantasy/escape from the real world. I'm not good at that and don't really care to be. I have no idea what it's like to have a whole other world in my head.

    Can you begin to understand what their life is about?
    Altruism, idealism, Making A Difference, optimism, nurturing, sensitivity.

    Do you think it's a more or less commonly understood type than yours?

    I think that they are more misunderstood by the world at large, but that my type is more misunderstood by people who are interested in Type.

    What kind of societies or groups these people participate in?
    I'd say social-justice-related or service-type groups.

    Do you see those types a lot?
    I know a couple of them; they're much less common than EXTX types are, I think.

    How do you act around them?
    Carefully and respectfully at first; more comfortably and relaxed later (when they no longer find me intimidating )

    What would you think they think of you?

    You know, I have no idea. I know what individual INFPs think of me, but I have no idea what the group consensus would be (if INFPs make such things )

    So, you've figured your opposite type. What you think of them? My opposite type is ISTJ. In theory I am somewhat intimidated by xSTJs, but in reality each person is different and so much more than their MBTI type, so I could probably happily get along with a lot of them.

    Do you feel that type is shrouded in mystery? To me? Not really shrouded in mystery, though I'm sure there are a lot of things about living in this world as an ISTJ that are so foreign to me that I wouldn't even know about them unless they were explained to me, and wouldn't ever fully understand since I'm not an ISTJ myself. They do seem pretty different from me, but not in a very mysterious way.

    What strikes as the oddest thing in them? I don't know if anything about them strikes me as particularly odd, but I don't really understand all the emphasis on scheduling.

    Can you begin to understand what their life is about? Sure.

    Do you think it's a more or less commonly understood type than yours? That's a good question. I think they are probably more commonly understood than ENFPs, since there are apparently more of them, and because many SJ traits are very highly valued in our culture here. But the fact that they are introverts may make them harder for some people to understand.

    What kind of societies or groups these people participate in? The military.

    Do you see those types a lot? I don't know, since I don't know most people's types. But if they are a type with a high percentage in the population, then I probably see them around.

    How do you act around them? Slightly intimidated.

    What would you think they think of you? I am probably shrouded in mystery.

    ESTJ, my dad.

    Do you feel that type is shrouded in mystery?
    Not really... not a whole lot anyway.

    What strikes as the oddest thing in them?
    His attitude about work. You got to do it, and you got to do it NOW. It seems cold

    Can you begin to understand what their life is about?
    Work, family, so called "piller of community". My dad is like that too the max, he works really hard (lawyer), he is always telling his kids to get their work done, and he is a leader in his social circles (partner at law firm, president of the board of directors at country club).

    Do you think it's a more or less commonly understood type than yours?
    More understood for sure.

    What kind of societies or groups these people participate in?
    Well... my dad is in the lawyer's society of Ontario or something like that, and he is a huge golf fanatic and very active at the local golf and country club.

    Do you see those types a lot?
    I see my dad almost every day... I'm not sure about other ESTJ's.

    How do you act around them?
    Like myself.

    What would you think they think of you?
    Well my dad seems to think fairly well of me, but he also seems to have a slightly different idea of who I am than I actually am, in that he sometimes acts like I'm how he wants me to be, rather than how I actually am (i.e. "lets go golfing, you love golf " "No I don't, I don't want to golf")

    Just kidding... My brother-in-law is one, ESTJ. He seems dependable, hard working, practical, hard nosed on outside with softer heart underneath. He can be a bit overbearing and then later he might be apologetic about it. Very action orientated.

    Do you feel that type is shrouded in mystery?
    I don't totally understand him. Nor does he understand me, but he seems to think he does. He seems to find me both lacking and irritating.

    What strikes as the oddest thing in them?
    Need to be sexually harassing to women and then gets offended if you avoid him because of it.

    Can you begin to understand what their life is about?
    Work, family, tangible success,

    Do you think it's a more or less commonly understood type than yours?
    More understood for sure and more valued by society as a whole.

    What kind of societies or groups these people participate in?
    traditional ones

    Do you see those types a lot?
    I seem to, but know few well.

    How do you act around them?
    Closed off many times. Hard to find common ground. They have tendency try to invade too early, make assumptions and run with them. They also try to "push" me into some action they feel is imperative and that is guaranteed to turn my blood cold. They don't understand that I need time to warm up to communication and that getting too personal too fast or being crude with me is just going to shut me right down.

    What would you think they think of you?
    I seem to tick many of them off right off the bat, without opening my mouth at all.

    INFP=ESTJ

    So, you've figured your opposite type. What you think of them?
    Interestingly, my best childhood friend happens to be an ESTJ. Probably not a strong one, but then again neither am I a strong INFP. What I like about them is that they are outgoing, and determined. What I don't like about them is that they can be extremely rigid, and attempt to make everything fit their agenda.

    Do you feel that type is shrouded in mystery?
    No, not at all. Really black and white to me, but perhaps there is more to it than I believe.

    What strikes as the oddest thing in them?
    Their unwillingness to see things from a different light.

    Can you begin to understand what their life is about?
    Yes in some ways, but to an INFP it seems unfulfilling.

    Do you think it's a more or less commonly understood type than yours?
    A far more commonly understood type. I'm sure there is something beneath the surface but it doesn't show itself often.

    What kind of societies or groups these people participate in?
    Mine, Yours, any corporate building. Go getters is probably the best description I can come up with for the ESTJ. I'd prefer to reflect a bit first.

    Do you see those types a lot?
    Yes. They are quite common.

    How do you act around them?
    More T-like. More Extraverted. I guess as an INFP I attempt to try to understand them by adopting some of their mannerisms.

    What would you think they think of you?
    Irrational, Immature, Awkward and Indecisive.

    Bwahaha thread necromancy ftw.

    I promised to write a better description of my opposite type, the ISFJ, when I had gained distance to them ( which I now have).

    So, you've figured your opposite type. What you think of them?
    They're hard-working, idealistic people who work for the good of the society on a basic level. They go for service orientated jobs and genuinely enjoy doing service.

    Do you feel that type is shrouded in mystery?
    I still think that "mother" figure is well understood. But in closer discussions with them, there's a difficult battle of will and faith to stay protective, nurturing and caring. So I think they're deeper than they appear, and they might be easily taken for granted.

    What strikes as the oddest thing in them?
    I'm curious where they get their strong ideals from. They're not subject to study, re-evaluation or anything like that. They just decide their thing is some kind of service, and it sticks. I can't understand the extent of dedication they do.

    Can you begin to understand what their life is about?
    Uhh, helping, protecting, being a part of community by being valuable, steady and adhering to social standards.

    Do you think it's a more or less commonly understood type than yours?
    Less, they're taken for granted.

    What kind of societies or groups these people participate in?
    They're the pillars of society. No I'm not saying I'm useless to society, just that I'm not a pillar So, they're behind the scenes mostly everywhere, but rather visible, as they take an active role in participating in what they do. They don't steal the spotlight, tho.

    Do you see those types a lot?
    A little.

    How do you act around them?
    I try to get deeper with them than just realizing them providing me with something. I try to get into their psyche. I try to be appreciative of what they do, supportive.

    What would you think they think of you?
    Immoral, smart, a rogue, renegade, antihero, capable, con man, player.

    although this thread is probably not constructive at all, you should all at least remember that: the 'opposite' type is not the one with all the opposite letters, but the one with the same 1st and last letter, and opposite middle letters (ex. ENTP and ESFP)
