    Question Types Who Resemble Other Types

    Hi all!

    So I've often heard it said that of all the NFs, ENFJs are the most similar to Guardians, ENFPs are the most similar to Artisans, and INFJs are the most similar to Rationals, And I think these hold pretty true.

    So, I was wondering if we could make similar comparisons in the other Temperaments? The only one I could come up with was that ISTJs were the most similar to the Rationals...


    Note: Yes, I am using Keirsey distinctions and terminologies, and I've gathered this system is a bit controversial here. I can't figure out a general rule using cognitive functions, and these observations are qualitative only. Because of this, the Keirsey system seemed most appropriate. If you find a pattern or prefer a different system, feel free to use it. Just please please please don't derail this thread with your personal feelings on the benefits/detriments of the Keirsey system. Thank you.

    ENFPs and ISFPs are mixed up sometimes, specifically.

    I do think sometimes ISTJs think they're INTJs, but honestly ISTPs have dom Ti like INTP which makes them much more likely to get confused with one another.

    I am a "Sunburst" meaning I am an NF who leans toward SP, in terms of Keirsey I feel that I am an NF-SP.

    ENxJs are most like Guardians, but frankly I think ENTJs are more like SJs than ENFJs, because ENTJs are so focused on "doing" and "accomplishing" that they could much more easily get mixed up with the SJ temperament than ENFJs, IMO (and IME).

    -In general, any Sensing rational for its intuitive counterpart, assuming you're a bloody moron.
    -Ditto for any Feeling irrational and its Thinking counterpart. Sometimes happens the other way around as well.
    -ENFP => ENTJ
    -ENFP => INTJ
    -ENFP => INFJ
    -ENFP => INTP
    -INTJ => INFJ (Worth mentioning, as it is the single most bloody common mistyping ever, after perhaps ENFP => ENTP).

    I'll think of more later.

    ENFP and INTP?

    I think ENFP and either of the xSFP types would come way before that mix up. That's a pretty damn big mix up, bro.

    ENFPs are a fair bit more reserved than ENTPs.

    I've seen ENTJ - INFJ mixups.

    I don't know how this can happen.

    For ENFPs, ESFP is probably the most common mistyping after INFP, but I have mistyped as both INTP and ENTP... and a lot of people type me as xNTJ in rl...

    I always thought the common mistype for INFJs was INTP?

    Well, I'm really looking at within each Temperament, which role variant is most like another TEmperament. Thank you for your observations though. I agree with you on ENTJs and ISTPs now that I think about it, thank you.
