    What are MBTI letters? The letters in the word "MBTI" itself, or the letters related to the four dichotomies?

    The green grin makes me a little worried about a cat trap, but here goes a shot.

    Pragmatism
    Ti-Se

    Practicality
    Si-Te

    Patience
    Si-Fe

    => S?

    Right?

    Alternatively, could all three be "ISJ" traits?

    A pragma is an article in the past.
    A thing.

    A practice is the derivative of the thing.
    A tool.

    Pragmatism - ST

    Practicality - STJ

    ...

    Aren't pragmatic and practical the same thing?

    Patience - INFP (?)

    Based on what you said...

    Pragmatism is SF (Si Fe/Fi?)
    Practicality is ST (Te Si or Ti Se)
    Patience? I don't believe it's covered by MBTI at all. Part of human nature yes... but not found by MBTI... more like conscientiousness of the Big 5.
