    Default If you could test drive a different type for one day...

    If you woke up with a personality change for a day - what would you choose?

    I'd love to try out being an INTJ, since I find myself admiring their brains all the time. I'd also love to see what it's like to be an ExTP, because oftentimes they look like they're having a blast - while at the same time being so very different from the way I experience things. I do wonder what's going on in their heads sometimes.

    INFJ.
    So I could spend all day staring at a kleenex box trying to discover its inner meanings.

    ISTP

    I could take my shadow functions for a ride and discover what it is to be the type best suited for this world (the ISTP).

    You should Thomson's descriptions. Life is not easy for either INTP or ISTP.

    About the only advantage an ISTP may have over you is automating a lot of practicalities (and by practicalities, I mean, home appliances and oil changes).

    I wouldn't mind needing less external stimuli (I), being more concreteness-inclined (S) and less feel-y (T).

    ISTPs are along with ISFPs the most N of Ss and they still get to use Se which is the function more tuned to the here and now.

    But sure, everyone has problems.

    Probably ESTP - so very different from me in many ways.
    I would also say ISFP, except they are Fi-dom also, but to see the difference firsthand between Se & Ne would be cool.
    Often a star was waiting for you to notice it. A wave rolled toward you out of the distant past, or as you walked under an open window, a violin yielded itself to your hearing. All this was mission. But could you accomplish it? (Rilke)

    Fair enough. On that note, I wish I was more optimistic, could mix it up with lots of people for awhile, and be "possibility" oriented like an ENFP. I can look at multiple angles to things, but often do it in a cynical way...just to shoot options down, for the sake of what I consider viable/realistic. I'm especially my own worst enemy when it comes to finding prospects or new goals. Unlike an ENFP.

    MBTI aside, I think Enneagram 6 and 4 both describe aspects of my behavior , but I'd might be better off as a Extroverted 7 Ne type for awhile.
