    Jung himself was probably an ISTP. There are Sensors on here who are quite knowledgeable of MBTI. I said INFPs, specifically, not all Intuitives.

    Yes, it's what makes me tempted to reject it some time.

    Yeah anytime I've gotten frustrated with it, it has been because, first of all, I didn't understand introversion and extroversion, and well I didn't understand a lot of it at first...I was quite lost...and the whole process of learning it and the cognitive dissonance alone can probably cause some people to reject it.

    Then I got mad at Keirsey because I sound like a cross between NFP and SFP, and furthermore, now by one of the Jungian systems I look like an ES(F) Cultural Realist...and in Beebe's theory I could easily be ESFP while in Lenore's I fit ENFP just fine.

    If I wasn't happy thinking "oh well I can be ExFP" I might freak out. But I'm not gonna do that.

    I accept that it's just a theory, and the theory isn't going to quite fit real life, even though it may be very close.

    On the other hand, I think the theory is valid enough to be approximately correct in most cases, and is a valuable tool for self-understanding, as well as understanding others.

    I've yet to see any psychological or sociological theory be perfect or even close to it. And this is from a very small sampling of such, since I'm not a psych major.

    I was just sharing my experience... I realize I don't know a lot of people, S or N, IRL. My ISFx mom is always asking, "why are you researching this, again?".

    So the inventor could not even properly use his own invention?

    The philosopher Jean-Jacques Rousseau was an ISFP. William Wordsworth was ISFJ, and Sylvia Plath may have been too. Sensors by their very nature do not reject theory, this is a lie of pop-culture typology. A lie that I even fell for in the beginning.

    This wins a prize: Rene Russo and Jean-Jacques Rousseau became one.
