    This poll is based on a study cited in the book I cited in the OP. And it's not intended to PROVE which type you are. I did say that it is a clue. Since you decided to respond to it, I decided to use that response to confirm what I already thought your type was from the very beginning. Your tertiary Ti is stronger than usual for an INFJ. However, it doesn't come across as very effective in the forums. It gives the appearance of intellectuality.

    As for how I relate tasteful and elegance to Ni, I didn't conduct the study. However, it does seem correct. consider the ENTJ versus the ESTJ. The ESTJ dresses appropriately, according to social norms, and for functionality. The ENTJ, on the other hand, definitely dresses more tastefully and even elegantly than the ESTJ. There is an individual flair to the ENTJ's manner of dress.

    Natural savers don't have to plan. The money that is saved up then serves to feed their sense of possibilities.

    I voted for plan and save but when I looked at the key it also loyalty and certain brands and stores which I don't really identify with. I just buy whatever's cheap and fits my needs.

    I related second most to "It's natural to save", which was the Ne statement.
    Then the Ti one.

    I tried to avoid giving too many cues as to which function each question related to. "Plan and save" is likely to throw everybody off. But it is still revealing in that it shows a tendency toward Judging. Si-dom is a judging type (ISTJ or ISFJ).

    I voted Money matters least to this type, and that's funny, because supposedly, Fi is at the very bottom of my function order, whether I'm an ISTP or an INTP!

    I don't think money matters because material things just come and go, but glory and achievement can last forever. That is gained through good thoughts and actions rather than possessions.

    I buy things on impulse sometimes when I like them and I have money in my pocket, but I'm honestly not a big consumer on the whole. I live quite frugally but I don't tend to think much about it consciously.

    How are Ne types natural savers? I really don't understand how that one works. Someone explain, please?

    No, you miss the option of money bipolarism ie. living a quite modest life, saving cash etc...and then out of a whim spending it all on a new shiny item

    You're over-thinking it. In this case you're not focused on caring for others, you're just spending money on a select few.

    Good luck if you can deconvolve all that.

    Money represents possibilities. Saving money up for the possibilities it represents comes naturally to Ne dominants.
