    That test is really not accurate.

    My last post was my analysis. Yet, later at night I got this intuitive memory: The fact that you are an ISTJ doesn't mean that you can't be open (socially), or ever have been. My memory is so that you must be thinking of yourself in the past as more open, playful etc. Am I right? But that's something totally different than being ESXP. I feel excited about this thought, I hope you can agree a little with it. Seen from my mother (ISTj) it can be very true for an ISTj to be curious, interested, playful, etc (especially) when young. And according to Jung we get more introverted as we get older. Besides, as a child we are all usually less differentiated into a single type.
    So what do you think about this solution?
    No matter your answer, your suggestion of having changed type does form an inspiration to think about my INTP/J dynamics.

    OK, maybe 'prefer' was not the right choice of words... I didn't mean 'prefer' in the sense of 'consciously choose', but more like that by default, without being aware (as most of the time we are not really aware of our phsychology), I would probably still use N as it is natural to me, no matter how much I 'train' to use S and how good I might get.

    BTW, extroversion and 'being good in social situations' are quite different concepts indeed, there are many threads on this topic in this forum as well. I myself am a good example of an extrovert who is a total social disaster . And what you wrote, indicates E more that I (then again, it is just one sentence, so I'm not assuming anything).

    This test is definitely just... pseudoscience... but fun nevertheless... and I did get an ENTP result
    Thanks for the link!
