    Default 9 Q's of your opposite type!

    Tell me what you think of it! Just switch all your MBTI type code letters to the opposite and you'll have it. If you are unsure of your MBTI code, answer according to the MBTI type that seems least you..*

    So, you've figured your opposite type. What you think of them?

    Do you feel that type is shrouded in mystery?

    What strikes as the oddest thing in them?

    Can you begin to understand what their life is about?

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

    What kind of societies or groups these people participate in?

    Do you see those types a lot?

    How do you act around them?

    What would you think they think of you?

    *)you can answer with a template if your wish, for example ESXX! Of course, this makes the least sense if your type is XXXX..

    My opposite type is ESFJ. I like them, I almost married one.

    Do you feel that type is shrouded in mystery?
    Yes. A bit. I think that is part of the draw.

    What strikes as the oddest thing in them?
    The time spent in socializing with pleasantries.

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

    Do you think it's a more or less commonly understood type than yours?
    Couldn't really tell. As individuals they are probably fairly well understood by the people in their life. As a type (being an S, and the already mentioned biases against S's), probably not that well understood.

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

    Do you see those types a lot?
    No.

    How do you act around them?
    Like I do with most people.

    What would you think they think of you?
    Not much. Like most people.

    (I like the fact that you individually bolded each question, it makes for easy formatting.)

    I'm going to pick ESFJ, because I don't know any ENFJs, and the SJ mindset seems most foreign to me anyway.

    So, you've figured your opposite type. What you think of them?
    They're fun and very generous, very warm and loving people. And I offend them very easily somehow. Right now though after arguing for a week straight over how details should be organized I can't stand to look at them temporarily.

    Do you feel that type is shrouded in mystery?
    No.

    What strikes as the oddest thing in them?
    That they're offended by the most random, illogical things!

    Can you begin to understand what their life is about?
    I don't think I can begin to understand what any other person's life is about.

    Do you think it's a more or less commonly understood type than yours?
    On a pure type basis, probably about the same. As a female ISTP I suppose I am a little less commonly understood.

    What kind of societies or groups these people participate in?
    Same as me really. Sports, that's about it.

    Do you see those types a lot?
    I live with two of them, actually.

    How do you act around them?
    Currently avoiding, usually fairly normal, we're friends and all. We argue a lot though, and I have to tread lightly to avoid hurting feelings (although somehow it still happens sometimes). We share a tendency to want to organize things in very specific ways, so we butt heads a lot when we disagree on things.

    What would you think they think of you?
    -offensive
    -antisocial
    -bitchy
    -selfish
    -lazy
    -argumentative
    -etc, etc..I'm sure I could go on, but I think that's enough...(also I think any type could say that about me)

    Well those .. ISFJ.. ooh! I didn't think about ISFJ before writing this questionaire.. now I'm paying for it.. two ISFJ I know, I've been on the border on whether it's been good to know them or not, but yes it's been good. Too much controversy with them to begin to describe them with few sentences.

    Do you feel that type is shrouded in mystery?
    I did think so about the other. The other was completely predictable. Oh, you mean other ISFJ than just two persons? Sorry, my mind is now totally fixed on 1 notorious and 1 nice ISFJ I know.. I can't think of the type past those persons atm..
    What strikes as the oddest thing in them?
    Their infuriatingly/cutely flawed logic. They just invent whatever damn they feel like inventing and put a word like "fact" or "logic" in the sentence.. I mean, what are these people doing analyzing anything?
    Can you begin to understand what their life is about?
    Yes, they sacrifice much of their time to help others. So supposedly I don't.. which is true. I think they're big on reading the society's expectations.
    Do you think it's a more or less commonly understood type than yours?
    Uh, I think it's some kind of a "mother" type, extremely plain public persona, something that anyone can get into. They're the Givers. Well, perhaps some kind of a zealous fanatic, if given the "right" education.
    What kind of societies or groups these people participate in?
    Uh, something that does good for people, or something very mundane and usual, I don't think they mind being in some of the most usual professions on earth. I think they're valued for their hard working, and they can be most hated or loved in their community, because they seem to choose their tasks without consideration to many outside views .. They do their work hard, whether it was the correct work to do, or not.
    Do you see those types a lot?
    No, I tend to be oblivious to that type wherever they are.
    How do you act around them?
    I take my mindset of mundane, usual things that people of the community are interested about.
    What would you think they think of you?
    They've told much the same things about me as anyone, so I guess they think the same. But still, they've been afraid that I don't approve them. They also see I go by a different rulebook, tho it works out just ok. They also pay the most attention of any personality type I've ever met to some personal quirks I do.. in an offensive way, in my opinion. They think of me as intelligent, bold, capable, risky, clumsy, random, and at times laughable.

    My type is IXFJ, so my opposite would be EXTP.

    So, you've figured your opposite type. What you think of them?

    ENTP. Love them. They're interesting, fun, lively and irreverent.
    ESTP. I know nothing about them. I don't know any.

    Do you feel that type is shrouded in mystery?

    ENTP. No.
    ESTP. Theoretically, no. [smile.]

    What strikes as the oddest thing in them?

    ENTP. They can't tell time. [smile.]
    ESTP. ??

    Can you begin to understand what their life is about?

    ENTP. Challenge, fun, words.
    ESTP. ??

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

    ENTP. On this forum, more commonly understood.
    ESTP. No idea.

    What kind of societies or groups these people participate in?

    ENTP. This forum, MENSA, grad school, sci fi book groups, LARP, politics.
    ESTP. ??

    Do you see those types a lot?

    ENTP. I know at least two well.
    ESTP. No.

    How do you act around them?

    ENTP. I laugh a lot.
    ESTP. I'm not around them.

    What would you think they think of you?

    ENTP. She's appealing, responsible, helpful, organized and likes to laugh.

    I've had good and bad times with both great ISFJ's I've known, I hate that I got in a bitter and bad mood when remembering one of the two. I'll re-do my answers when I've calmed down.

    So, you've figured your opposite type. What you think of them?

    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.

    But don't you get a stronger version when you think of someone completely different?

    I love this thread, and I sincerely love the fact that I wrote a huge paragraph about my opposite, then deleted it, because I felt bad posting it.
