    I used to tell my best ENTP friend he was a closet F. He's on the line for E/I, but definitely P. He seems more bubbly than fluffy, but warm and friendly for sure.

    Hmm... the thinkers I know are cheery.. they can laugh at themselves.. they break the law.. they're funny as hell... there is no correlation between thinking and not being able to let loose.

    Theoretically, that correlation is with J.

    That is typical for male ENTPs. The ones I know show that. Their tertiary is Fe. Because of that, they can also be very very affectionate in a "Feeling" sort of way... but that's not their primary way of sorting through things.

    With ENTPs, you see their Ne and their Fe... you don't get to see the innards that easily.

    When I think about how cold and mean and angry I used to be, it's scary.

    But my history teacher wrote in my yearbook that I brought "sunshine" to his class with my smile. Go figure.

    I'm always shocked by how many people register me as a "warm, if quiet, presence". Apparently I tend to radiate this placid center as a ground-state, when really it's mostly just me retreating inside and letting everything stay at rest. As well, doing work in "touchy-feely" non-profits usually gets one pegged as a big ole F, usually landing me on the INFP square. Gotta say, just for a day, that could be fun to wear for a little.

    Just for a day, though. Then I'd want to pour gasoline over my head and make Buddhist shish kebabs.

    I agree with that... A ENTP friend of mine can turn very... crazily cheerful for the lack of better words.

    And the opposite is IJ... I can be very cold at times.

    I agree with you. I think it's an overstep of boundaries for people to start telling you what type you are.

    I do personally value insight others can offer to my process by sharing how they see me from the outside, but I think it should always be understood by everyone that the only perspective someone outside of yourself can offer is an outside perspective. The only one who knows your internal world is yourself. Those external at best can only get shadow impressions of that internal world.

    To impose a judgement of type any more forcefully than an offering of external observational insight to me is a violation of personal boundary and humility.
