    He complains about being bored constantly, but doesn't have any specific interests.
    He enjoys camping/fishing type activities, board games and video games (he especially likes the games that have you build a medieval castle and village and then attack other castles).
    He doesn't seem to have compassion or understanding of other people's feelings, but occasionally he will strongly defend someone who is being bullied or picked on or being treated unjustly.
    He loves to argue/debate.
    He tends to avoid any type of work, but will work really had to get a reward he wants or to get money to buy a video game.
    He has a very strong reaction to smells and noise.
    When he was a baby, the only thing that would calm him down was if I sang to him. He wasn't calmed down by rocking or being held like other babies.

    Any thoughts?
    This kind of sounds like possible aspergers or autism?

    or you can just read the profiles. I think you could have your son fill out the test, but it's really more from a parent's perspective.
    yeah, it's really interesting. it just identifies a kid's dominant function, essentially. though i was much more like an IFP kid than an ENP kid.

    lol! sorry. i will explain better.

    INTJ, enneatype 5 wing 6, or 6 wing 5; self-preservation variant (the three variants are social, sexual, and self-pres).

    i agree with you, probably - especially because he sounds more INTJ overall to me at first glance - but if he's a 6, it may well have been that side of him. my dad is an INTP 6w5 and he has stories of himself being a child and getting beat up because he stuck up for bullied kids, or just for himself when he was being bullied

It was clearly a funnel shape reaching from ground to sky. He immediately threw out, "It's not a tornado until it touches the ground, and you don't know if it touched the ground." I said, "Oh, so it could have been hovering one inch above the ground and not be a tornado, just a funnel cloud." He said, "That's right."

    So I have to ask: What's all this BALONEY on internet sites about the NT being skeptics? What do they mean by NT's being skeptics?
    i think it's often to do with technical precision and in visioning better ways to get things done, as well as not taking things at face value. i don't think they mean specific, situational skepticism as much as delving deep into systems and questioning things.

    i mean, look here, you are an NT being skeptical of NTs being skeptics, no?

    Your ex was a very interesting ESFJ because integral to their type's make-up is following cultural norms. The ESFJ type forms the backbone of many of our cultural institutions, religious or otherwise.

    Yeah he follows his mother's cultural norms. The man's name goes first on the Christmas gift package, dammit. The man walks on the street side of the sidewalk to protect the girl. People who cheat on their spouses get cut up, and this is common sense.

    Seriously, not all SFJs were raised in conservative Christian households. Do we really need to have the Si discussion about what happens when Si/Fe is subjected to liberal, non-religious parenting?

    "i mean, look here, you are an NT being skeptical of NTs being skeptics, no?" But I gave those pages the benefit of the doubt above by also asking, "What does it MEAN?" I know what a Sensor's skepticism means. I just think it's illogical to only describe NTs as skeptical. The claims on those pages just don't hold water with me.

    I really need to see an IQ score on him, not to say that an ISTP (which is how I type him) has a low IQ, but that the INTJ has a HIGH IQ, probably the highest of all the types.

    I think the way you type people might be incorrect.

    As culture changes (evolves) so do many of these type-descriptions. Many of them are becoming out-dated. But the principle behind them remains the same.

    Nevertheless, I like my formula and I've been using it for a long, long time. I just need to see some good counter-arguments to my claims. If you don't like my disagreement, let me just point out that I often agree with you more than disagree. But I suspect we come from very different generational perspectives.
