    @ wedekit: i like the beach examples.

    @ the OP: i wish i was an ENTP, and i spent a year going back and forth between all the NP types (INTP, ENTP, INFP, ENFP) before i figured out i'm really INFJ from a function theory standpoint (those damn messy desk questions threw me off). i still test as INTP or sometimes INFP, though.

    Also, whenever I research material on my type, I am astounded by how accurately it generally depicts my personality.

    Lastly, I just don't think most people are self aware.

    Which begs the question, are phonies even aware that they're phony?
    I type either ENFP or ENTP, depending on my mood and both descriptions fit me pretty well, so...

    As far as I can tell... yeah. Been professionally tested, self-confirmed and also confirmed by others. I was reluctant to admit my ENTP-ness and went under a cloak of INTP-ness for quite a while, until Jennifer rumbled me and forced me out of the closet.

    I think if someone's 100% sure of their type that means they're not self aware enough to even question it (and therefore have probably got it wrong)
    But there's no best type, some of the best and most fascinating people I know are types like ESFJ which don't seem to be very popular on here. You can't say all INxx types are deep or interesting, for example, and all ESxx types are not...
    Yeah, that's my case... I feel like my level of extraversion varies on my mood - on a good day I'm clearly extraverted, on a regular day I'm borderline, but sitting on the extraverted side of the line, and on bad days I'm a little introverted.

    So, y'know, I want to have good days, so I want to be more ENFP than I actually am? Hmm. Who knows?

    But very good points!
    Extraversion (52%) ---- Introversion (48%)
    Sensing (26%) ---- iNtuition (74%)
    Thinking (16%) ---- Feeling (84%)
    Judging (5%) ---- Perceiving (95%)

    Hmm. It's just the idea that sensors are concrete, practical, boring ect that annoys me. I know so many people that are definitely sensors but not really any of those things... So, many of the S types may be very concrete and "boring" but NOT ALL and I think that's why many S types type themselves as N. I know that if I showed most of the common S descriptions to many of my S friends they would immediately type themselves as N.
    I think the forest/trees Si/Se/Ni/Ne is the fairest and least biased example of the differences between Ss and Ns.
    Introverted: 100%
    INtuition: 95%
    Feeling: 58%
    Perceiving: 89%
