    What you think of them?

    I generally like them, especially the 8w9 ones. They can be a bit strange, and when I've debated with them some of their views can seem antisocial and alien to me. And it's really strange to debate with them because of that, lol. We just seem to have really different priorities. We seem to eventually meet at Ni and Se, but the Fi and Te different is really large.

    One of my high school friends was an ENTJ, he was a really nice guy, even though his bluntness scared off some people (he really didn't like it when that happened, but he couldn't seem to help it. 16-18 year old Te dominance). It was fun to go out and do stuff with him. I liked how he always had something to say, I really liked talking to him about stuff; just anything really. I met him in chemistry class, and my teacher was using the MBTI test to group people together. I got INFP, and me, him, and an ENFP guy were the only other people that scored as N so we were put together. I think that our different skills worked well together in the class, and we started talking after working together for a bit.

    Do you feel that type is shrouded in mystery?

    Kind of. I think that both ISFP and ENTJ are shrouded in mystery in their own way, like every type.

    What strikes as the oddest thing in them?

    From asking them questions, one of the oddest things about them is that they seem to have a really hard time with physical intimacy and intimacy in general. And like KDude said, that they actually do mean well (I hope so anyway).

    Can you begin to understand what their life is about?

    Well, not really. lol

    What kind of societies or groups these people participate in?

    No idea. Education based societies? Like college alumni etc. Lots of ENTJs seem to be obsessed with learning and accomplishing stuff in school.

    Do you see those types a lot?

    No not really. They are, afterall, one of the rarest types.

    How do you act around them?

    Depends on the individual. I just usually act like myself and see what happens with anyone.

    What would you think they think of you?

    HAHAHA, they'd probably think that I was weird and lazy in my personal life (but I get shit done at work); and that I am too apathetic about things. That I look at things too simply, maybe.

    So, you've figured your opposite type. What you think of them?
    ISFJ, they are so very, very different to me.

    Do you feel that type is shrouded in mystery?
    Not really, but I do see them as having private depth.

    What strikes as the oddest thing in them?
    Insisting on putting other people first even when doing so will cause them problems.

    Can you begin to understand what their life is about?
    Having the same functions but in different order means that there are some similarities in how we approach things, we just have very different priorities. So I can begin to understand. It usually revolves around relationships.

    Do you think it's a more or less commonly understood type than yours?
    There's more of 'em, that would count for something.

    What kind of societies or groups these people participate in?
    Mostly community based groups, if they have children than things that help run activities that they like. I also expect they'd often have a tight knit group of lifelong friends that they keep in close contact with.

    Do you see those types a lot?
    I've only gotten to know a few on more than a surface level but it's not an uncommon type.

    How do you act around them?
    Cautious.

    What would you think they think of you?
    Impulsive, too rational, too unpredictable, too conceptual and too unfeeling.

    I'm gonna answer this again with a better knowledge of my type, ENTJ.

    ISFP. I think they enjoy the life, go to rock concerts, and they basically form the counterculture. I guess they are carefree of any rules and traditional measures of success. I guess they're the ultimate type with the "take it as it is" attitude.

    Do you feel that type is shrouded in mystery?
    No, I guess it's easily understood as the type that defines "underground". Some scheming, plotting and strategizing people are more mysterious. I guess their strive for easy living is quite understandable.

    What strikes as the oddest thing in them?
    Uhh, how they can so concentrate on the simpler pleasures and ignore the big Game.

    Can you begin to understand what their life is about?
    Culture, experience, living.

    Do you think it's a more or less commonly understood type than yours?
    I don't know. There are books and books about people close to my type, but they concentrate mostly on impersonal issues. My thoughts go on and on about this, but I don't know.

    What kind of societies or groups these people participate in?
    Anything where there's big part on culture, experience and openness. They're probably at one of the most uninviting bars and clubs in the city, probably something with blackened windows.

    Do you see those types a lot?
    No, not really. Sometimes I do. We haven't found many mutual interests until lately.
    How do you act around them?
    I'm myself, except that I don't go explaining my plans, theories or anything of the like. I try to enjoy my time and learn what there is to learn from them.

    What would you think they think of you?
    I guess they see me as the classical go-getter, bound to succeed in the traditional ways, decisive, goal-orientated, lacking spirit, lacking heart, being someone who represents the System.

    What you think of them? i think they behave like there is someone watching them on webcam and the world will explode if they slack on the job or break the rules.

    Do you feel that type is shrouded in mystery? no not at all.

    What strikes as the oddest thing in them? the order of their priorities

    Can you begin to understand what their life is about?
    yes

    What kind of societies or groups these people participate in?
    nothing particular to type that i can think of.

    Do you see those types a lot?
    yeah i think so

    How do you act around them?
    a bit guarded.

    What would you think they think of you?
    totally depends on the person and how well they knew me but...generally i think i'm seen as nice...sweet...friendly...but difficult to understand and communicate with at times....i think they might view my priorities as childish or naive.

    INFP- I found them intense, engaging, creative.

    Do you feel that type is shrouded in mystery?

    Not particularly, they are very open with their feelings and emotions, although certain actions I found confusing. They also have an odd ability to attempt to become detached and uncaring when they are hurt, but warm and affectionate when they are loved and cared for.

    What strikes as the oddest thing in them?

    I found it is best to be straightforward and logical with them, as I think INFPs don't respond to emotional threats and psychological manipulation unless they are sexually turned on by it. (don't ask...)

    Can you begin to understand what their life is about?

    They want to be appreciated for who they are and not compared to us ESTJs who might lead more "conventional" lives.

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

    Objectively speaking, I think we ESTJs are more often misunderstood. Our motives always have some sort of "symbolic" motive when oftentimes, we are being looked at through a macro lens- and the whole picture of who we are is overlooked and replaced with general stereotypes.

    What kind of societies or groups these people participate in?

    Most likely the INFP probably is drawn towards music and writing.

    Do you see those types a lot?

    I don't, but my sister (ENTJ) knows quite a few of them.

    How do you act around them?

    Very carefully. Once they verbalize what they perceive as aggressive or hurtful behavior, I take care not to repeat it. I've also noticed that they can sometimes be sensitive towards objective commentary- which they think is uncaring, and unfeeling.

    What would you think they think of you?

    Probably arrogant arseholes, lol. But most of the time the INFP doesn't really recognize a true ESTJ, and if they do, they probably often mistake us for an INTP/ISTP.
    I don't think I've ever seen a sensor-thinking type understand an INFP better. Kudos to you!

    My opposite type is ISTJ. There are some ISTJs that are very close to me, so I get to see a different side of them than what you would see upon first meeting them. When they love you, they can be adoring, patient, accepting of differences (if not understanding of them), and solid rocks that you can bank on when you are having a crisis.

    Do you feel that type is shrouded in mystery?
    Not really. It can seem that way because they're not quick to reveal personal information, but once you get to know them, their motivations are usually pretty explicable. They want stability. They want consistency. They want efficiency.

    What strikes as the oddest thing in them?
    How small details changing can upset them and disorient them. They have this amazing ability to see details that I swear are NOT there. I genuinely mean it when I say I can't seem to see small details that they can, no matter how hard I concentrate.

    Can you begin to understand what their life is about?
    For sure. I wouldn't say that I understand every ISTJ because I haven't met them all. But the ones I have met have wanted to provide a secure, logical life for the ones that they love.

    Do you think it's a more or less commonly understood type than yours?
    I never feel like any of the types are really understood the way they want to be. Except maybe xSTPs because they don't seem to want to be understood very deeply. They seem to want to be accepted without having to go through explanations of themselves that they would consider invasive.

    What kind of societies or groups these people participate in?
    Oh, it depends. I think they value being in stable, secure groups where everyone does their part and everyone knows what is expected of them with their close friends. I would say local civic groups, religious groups, just 'normal' activities, but they put a lot of quiet devotion and commitment into them.

    Do you see those types a lot?
    Yes!

    How do you act around them?
    I don't do anything differently. Except that I always try to clean up and make sure things are organized.

    What would you think they think of you?
    Very outspoken. Adorable. Adoring. Thoughtful. Brave.

    That would be ENTP and generally speaking, they intimidate me. Mostly because they sometimes seem annoyed with SJ ways. There are exceptions to this though and with those I really find them fun and interesting.

    Do you feel that type is shrouded in mystery?

    Yes. So different from me.

    What strikes as the oddest thing in them?

    Probably how much they enjoy iNtuition.

    Can you begin to understand what their life is about?

    I think so but I'm sure they would disagree.

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

    They can be quite zany, so, less. I think they are equally liked in society though. Plenty of people love zany.

    What kind of societies or groups these people participate in?

    Anything new and/or non-conforming.

    Do you see those types a lot?

    I live near Silicon valley, CA, so yes I think so.

    How do you act around them?

    Like this >>> >> > nervous

    What would you think they think of you?

    Either extremely annoyed or just ignore me.

    Hmm... ESFJ's.

    So, you've figured your opposite type. What you think of them?
    In general, I like them, but don't have much in common with them (even aside from MBTI stuff). When in their company one-on-one I'm often a little uncomfortable -- as if I have expectations to live up to that I don't particularly understand, and have no hope of achieving.

    Do you feel that type is shrouded in mystery?
    No. Not really. I think that some ESFJ's aren't always seen to be as deep as they are, but in general I think that society in general understands and appreciates their qualities.

    What strikes as the oddest thing in them?
    I'm thinking mostly of my sister when I say this, but their desire and appreciation to join groups and place themselves in public situations. I don't mean that I consider them "followers" (I don't), but in that it strikes me as alien to so freely associate within organizations, and more so to *choose* to and enjoy it.

    Can you begin to understand what their life is about?
    I'd like to say yes, in that I think it's fairly "out in the open" -- much more than I am, certainly. So I think that I know what their lives are about. But understand? Not the word I'd choose. I think that to truly understand, I would have to be able to place myself in their shoes and internalize the ability to see things as they do, and with ESFJ's, I'm unable to do that for even a short period of time. That shouldn't sound as harsh as it does -- it's a failing of my own, not a condemnation of them.

    Do you think it's a more or less commonly understood type than yours?
    Oh, easily a more commonly understood type -- no question. Perhaps not around this forum, but in general, absolutely.

    What kind of societies or groups these people participate in?
    Heh -- what sorts of societies or groups do ESFJ's *not* participate in? Professional and civic organizations, churches, etc.

    Do you see those types a lot?
    Probably not as often as most people do, but pretty often. Lots of ESFJ's out in the world . More now that I'm in more of a business environment then I did when I was in scientific research.

    How do you act around them?
    Um... like myself? I'm reserved and withdrawn -- perhaps more so around ESFJ's than normal, as I tend to only encounter them in "their world", where I'm not particularly comfortable.

    What would you think they think of you?
    Heh -- my guess is that you average ESFJ doesn't think much of me, at least not until they get to know me (and most probably not even then) -- which due to vast differences in interests and location doesn't happen often. Most likely they consider me too quiet, very dull, and uninvolved, although intelligent. Not a great deal of instinctive understanding either way . That takes work.

    When I get along with an ENFJ I see these traits: funny, silly, opinionated, stubborn, lively and intense. When I don't get along with one I see: overly sensitive, drama starters and as having "debbie downer" syndrome.

    Do you feel that type is shrouded in mystery?
    No

    What strikes as the oddest thing in them?
    I can't understand what upsets them and what doesn't. It seems very random.

    Can you begin to understand what their life is about?
    I don't know.

    Do you think it's a more or less commonly understood type than yours?
    As a female ISTP I'm pretty misunderstood. I could see a male ENFJ having the same issues.

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

    Do you see those types a lot?
    I have a good female ENFJ friend and the ENFP I hang out with regularly brings along her ENFJ male friend who rains on our parade almost regularly.

    How do you act around them?
    Same as I act around everyone.

    What would you think they think of you?
    Have to ask them

    ISTJ. As a group, I don't know. I only identified two. Plus, it's not fair to judge them as a group. One is mean and abusive and the other is VERY caring and loyal. I love him.

    Do you feel that type is shrouded in mystery?
    A little yes. We have many differences.

    What strikes as the oddest thing in them?
    I'm going to give a specific example. It's summer and my ISTJ friend decides to write an essay because he feels like he should be "working". He's writing the essay just to fill up time. He picked a random topic and just stuck with it. To me, that's a waste of time. What he SHOULD do (in my opinion), is ... pick a type of essay he wants to write (persuasive, argumentative, informational), pick a topic that he's interested in, write the essay, get it critiqued by an adult, and make the corrections. This way he's doing something productive, he's improviing his writing skills, and he's learning something new. Right now he's just torturing himself.

    Can you begin to understand what their life is about?
    What? Were all human!

    Do you think it's a more or less commonly understood type than yours?
    To be honest, I have no idea.

    What kind of societies or groups these people participate in?
    Engineering is filled with ISTJs.

    Do you see those types a lot?
    Probably. ISTJs are supposed to be a common type.

    How do you act around them?

    Nervous.

    What would you think they think of you?
    My ISTJ guy friend said...
    "You seem really quiet but when you start talking, you don't really stop." I found that funny and a tiny bit offensive. He also said... "You're a fun person."
    An ISTJ girl said...
    "You need to stop looking so confused all the time. Looking at your face just pisses me off."
