    you belief about his type means nothing because people who knew him said that he was an INTP. he didnt say his own type on his interviews, but he say few things about himself and said that what he said is enough for people who know the typology to give him a diagnosis from his words. he said something like rational/logical, not in tune with feeling matters of self or other people, introverted and something that described Ji instead of Je. and something else clearly referring to an INTP.

    ps. horneys concept of neurotic coping strategies isnt really a topology, they are just coping strategies, you could compare it to jungs work of complexes.

    She identifies three strategies and says everyone leads with one: When pressured in conflict, one tends to either disengage (Withdrawn), go on the offensive (Aggressive) or submit (Compliant). That's a three-fold typology in my book, and one that I find a useful supplement to MBTI.

    If superpowers were real, NFPs would have better ones.

    No one has proven anything on this thread, except that both NFPs and NTPs are good at making giant blanket statements without backing them up.

    Also, the question in the OP has already been answered, but things are still keeping on keepin' on... so I think a better title for this thread would be "Who's Better: NFP or NTP? I won't quit until I win." Which is pointless, honestly. Hasn't it been proven time and time again that there is no such thing as type superiority? I understand comparing/contrasting skills - which was happening here for a little while (even though none of it was "proven" per se) - but I don't get what's happening under the surface.

    Sigh. Whatever.

    Those are usually qualities/skills I attribute to NFPs, but I maintain that NTPs can help people more effectively, affect social change, and everything else NFPs are known for (except crying).

    So I ask you, what is something that the NFPs can do better than the NTPs? Also, prove it; if you can think of something, let's create a contest and see who does better.
    What are you really asking here? Trying to place yourself within the context of your own type? Maybe you are an NFP but are in denial...

    And since you are the person drawing conclusions - let's see your premises.

    This thread isn't fun. In fact, it's terribly boring. It's the same old rehashed "x is the superior type" discussion.

    It'll be fun once you can throw some actual discussion out there, I promise. It's not up to us to entertain you.

    Not sure if anyone has said this already but i imaging nfp's would be better at Idealising since nfp's tend to be more idealist versus the ntp's realism. Although i think again it's a generalisation.

    Frankly, the OP is just cheer-leading for a specific type. No facts, no studies, no objective data, just subjective judgments.

    Ergo, troll. As has been mentioned several times in this thread. It's been done before. Be more original.

    Fail. Go back to your hole and make sacrifices to your Dark Lord, eat bugs, or whatever makes you feel better about yourself.
