Really, when are they going to simply designate an ENXP type as official? It'll reduce the number of personality-confused individuals by SUCH a great extent...but then again, it would also take away a lot of soul-searching fun now, wouldn't it?
Alright, SO: I've been playing around with these delightful MBTI tests lately because...well, as an EN-something-P I find any new area of knowledge fascinating! Until I lose interest of course...ahem
Stop right there: ENTP.

Haha! That sounds ENTP-ish to your taste, does it? Now I thought BOTH of the EN_Ps relished the experience of novel topics to learn...until their obsession switches overnight to boredom XD
Jaguar: "[NF types] tend to trust their intuition and impressions first and then seek to find the logic and the data to support them" - ah, see, that's not me: I hold little regard for my gut feelings, not believing that people can or should 'sense' what's right or accurate. I prefer instead to rely on my analysis of the facts. So I guess that also seems indicative of ENTP-ness.
But still, the assertion that ENTPs value rule-of-law over peoples' feelings: is that accurate?? Is it understood that ENTPs can tend toward sensitivity and sentimentality as well, albeit with less 'emotional maturity' than ENFPs? And am I correct in my interpretation that while ENTPs, with that Fe tertiary, can indeed often express great concern over the feelings of others in a group, the Fi of ENFPs entails more that the emotions of others are noted and felt first on an internal level?
Oh, now is it true that ENTPs tend to internalize their emotions and be less expressive and more reluctant to share their inner feelings than ENFPs? Or is that another common misconception? Because if that's a tie breaker, I certainly have no problem with open expression and having the world know my deepest feelings/thoughts/secrets...but then again, I suppose that could just be the extroversion bit.
