^ Yeah, completely agreed with your point.
I mean, as Nardi says, if you take a middle-aged INTJ, his/her brain tends to looks like an ISFP's more than any other.
Same goes for ENFP and ESTJ, and on and on (I mean, we've talked about this shit plenty on here, so it's nothing new really).
Obviously, when he says this, it's the version of our shadow with the same orientation (I/E) that we look more like (i.e., same "dominant loop").
But for an INTJ, when we have to extrovert, I think that that SFP shadow version will basically just have a more extroverted orientation.
I've wondered for a long time, and not been able to settle on an answer, whether our shadow is of the same or opposite orientation.
I've come to think it can probably be either/or, depending on what the situation calls for (more extroverted, or more introverted?).
I had lunch with someone I hadn't seen since high school the other day, and she remembered me as being "bubbly".
I thought it was hilarious, cuz I know exactly why she remembers me that way (I'd even thought about it before).
It's just, if you said that to some other people, they'd be like, "Wtf are you talking about? Him?? Bubbly???"
The fact of the matter is, when I am comfortable with people, I can almost be bubbly like an ESFP.
But the occasions when I'm actually like that are pretty few and far between.
Whereas ESFPs are like that, well, most the damn day.
