    Default If you had to (and could) change your type, what would you change it to?

    My theory is that people are more inclined to switch between e/i and p/j than the two middle letters. In other words, people are willing to change the order and orientation of their top two functions, but they don't want new types of functions up there, because that would be too fundamental a shift. They're willing to change the style and shape, but not the content. So, for example:

    ISTPs would think about switching to ESTP, ISTJ, and ESTJ, but not INTP, ISFP, or INFP.

    ESFJs would think about switching to ESFP, ISFJ, and ISFP, but not ENFJ, ESTJ, or ENTJ.

    INFPs would think about switching to ENFP, INFJ, or ENFJ, but not ISFP, INTP, or ISTP.

    ENTPs would think about switching to INTP, ENTJ, or INTJ, but not ESTP, ENFP, or ESFP.

    This theory jives with my experience; it might be cool to be more extroverted and/or more open ended, but I wouldn't want to be less abstract or less rational.

    ENFP.. I'd rather be an ISFP than an INFJ though.

    I would choose ENTJ. I wouldn't want to stop planning things out.

    I suppose that's a possibility if someone is particularly attached to their dominant function.

    INFP
    You hem me in -- behind and before;
    you have laid your hand upon me.
    Such knowledge is too wonderful for me,
    too lofty for me to attain.

    As for me (INFP) I wouldn't mind being an NT. Any would do.

    I would definitely have a boyfriend right now if that were the case.

    On the real though, I like who I am. I don't wanna change! But if I had to, INFP 9w1 so/sx.

    Ooh! Then I could attract an ESTP 8w9 sp/so and we'd be all cute together.

    ENTP or ISTP. I used to want to be an INFP or ENFP, but I changed my mind on that one.
    [Trump's] rhetoric is not an abuse of power. In the same way that it's also not against the law to do a backflip off of the roof of your house onto your concrete driveway. It's just mind-numbingly stupid and, to say the least, counterproductive. - Bush did 9-11


    This is not going to go the way you think....
