    Default Name these temperaments

    Keirsey has already named four temperaments:

    SJ: Guardians
    SP: Artisans
    NT: Rationals
    NF: Idealists

    But how would you name these less conventional temperaments?

    ST: Realists
    SF: Sentimentalists
    NJ: Visionaries
    NP: Imaginatives
    TJ: Organizers
    TP: Tacticians
    FJ: Affiliators
    FP
    EJ: Initiators
    EP: Enthusiasts
    IJ: Stabilizers
    IP: Creators
    ES
    EN
    IS
    IN: Individualists
    ET: Pragmatists
    EF: Socials
    IT: Researchers
    IF: Humantarians

    There's also three-letter names as well, from Keirsey:

    STJ: Administrators
    SFJ: Conservators
    STP: Operators
    SFP: Entertainers
    NTJ: Coordinators
    NTP: Engineers
    NFJ: Mentors
    NFP: Advocates

    As well as more unnamed groupings of two (no naming after a function or attitude (E, I, J, P) please):

    ESJ
    ENJ
    ESP
    ENP
    ISJ
    INJ
    ISP
    INP
    ETJ: Leaders
    EFJ: Caregivers
    ETP
    EFP
    ITJ: Problem solvers
    IFJ: Advisors
    ITP: Thinkers
    IFP
    EST
    ENT
    ESF
    ENF
    IST
    INT: Iconoclasts
    ISF
    INF: Dreamers

    Good luck!

    EDIT: added possible names, will update.

    I named a bunch of them (or borrowed others' names) on my original super-long page:

    E/I + T/F (ETB: "Social image temperaments")

    EF: "expressive feelers"
    ET: "expressive thinkers"
    IF: "deep feelers"
    IT: "deep thinkers"

    E/I + J/P ("Sociability Temperaments" —George Frisbie writing in JPT)

    EP (Bissell: "extraverted eMpiricals" —Jung's "irrationals")
    EJ (Bissell: "extraverted Rationals", not to be confused with Keirsey's "Rational")
    IP (Bissell: "introverted Rationals")
    IJ (Bissell: "introverted eMpiricals")

    S/N + T/F (Original Myers "Temperaments"; preferred function combinations)

    SF (concrete [role-]informatives)
    ST (concrete directives)

    S/N + J/P ("Cognitive Temperaments", "Germane Temperaments", "Perceiving attitudes")

    NP ([Janet] Germane: true Apollonian)
    NJ (Germane: True Promethean)

    T/F + J/P ("Myers/McCaulley groups", "Normative Temperaments", "Judging temperament model", "Judging attitudes")

    TJ (Bissell: "the most directive")
    TP (Bissell: "the most pragmatic")
    FJ (Bissell: "the most cooperative")
    FP (Bissell: "the most friendly")

    Select three letter groups:

    ENP abstract Get Things Going
    ENJ abstract In Charge
    INP abstract Behind the Scenes
    INJ abstract Chart the Course
    ESF concrete Get Things Going
    EST concrete In Charge
    ISF concrete Behind the Scenes
    IST concrete Chart the Course

    I often think of TPs as "the tacticians" and TJs as "the administators" or "the strategists", ITs as "the stoics".

    I've already made a thread about the dominant function temperaments

    IP - the individualists
    EP - the responders
    IJ - the stablizers
    EJ - the initiators

    I might call TJs the organizers, and FJs the affiliators, but what about FPs?

    Not all IPs are individualists, and especially not ISTP. Though that might fit for the IN temperament.
    EPs as responders? I might call them the energizers or enthusiasts instead.

    Also, where's your thread on dominant function temperaments? Keep in mind I'm just looking for succinct, descriptive names, not traits.

    @Eric B

    Great post. I've read your pages (a long time ago) and have gained some useful information out of them. Thanks for putting that up there.

    You're Welcome!

    I also should include my alternative names for the E/I+J/P groups, since Personality Page says these are the first letters to develop in a child:

    IP - proto-Phlegmatic (or Supine)
    EP - proto-Sanguine
    IJ - proto-Melancholic
    EJ - proto-Choleric

    I/E=expressiveness
    J/P=responsiveness

    Some of these (including all N's) will grow into those temperaments (via the Interaction Style), but some S's will grow into the other temperament sharing I/E, but opposite in directing/informing, when T/F develop (In which case T/F is connected to Interaction Style, and J/P will really be connected with the conative temperament).

    More insight, although NT, NF, and ST already have names. I'll add those to ET, EF, IT, and IF.

    @Eric B, I have visited your site, although the names you have aren't the names I'm looking for. I'm looking for something a little less scientific and structured than what you have.

    OK. I knew those weren't really proper "names", but I'm not big on assigning names to type groups, as they can lead to stereotypes or generalizations. That's why I like the old "humour" names. They are (by now) "neutral" enough to not have that problem.
