    Default Which Types Are The Partier Types?

    I say this as someone who has noticed that there are people who are completely against going to parties. They don't like them AND think that many of the things people do at parties to have fun is wrong and unecessary. However, there are a lot of people who find that stuff to be fun.

    My idea

    Se-dominants will enjoy the party scene the most AND Ni-dominants will enjoy it the least- with T & F not really playing a role in the equations- so these are the types ranked in order of party-hearty

    ESTP, ESFP
    ENTP, ENFP
    ISTP, ISFP
    ESTJ, ESFJ, INTP, INFP
    ENTJ, ENFJ
    ISTJ, ISFJ
    INTJ, INFJ

    It really depends on what kind of party. If we're talking about the crazy college type, then mostly ESPs would be into it. If it's more the tea-and-scones variety, ISJs.

    INTJs probably wouldn't have much against parties but aren't interested. INFJs would be more against the sort of 'fun' they have.

    I think it's a combination of introvertness (or lack of) and shyness (and lack of). In a way that the shy introvert would suffer more if forced to go to a party, while the non-shy extrovert would be happier to join the party. With non-shy introverts and shy extroverts to be in the middle ground. Also the T/F dichotomy would kind of affect the order with the Fes more happy to be at parties and the Fis least happy
    According to this, I'd say (from the partiest to the least):

    ESFJ/ENFJ
    ESTJ/ENTJ
    ESFP/ENFP
    ESTP/ENTP
    ISFJ/INFJ
    ISTP/INTP
    ISTJ/INTJ
    ISFP/INFP

    Hm, I basically agree with your ordering.. ExxPs first, ending with IXXJs.

    I agree, for the most part, with ESxP being at the top, but not everything else. For example, I would expect ENxJs to enjoy partying far more than INxPs. Enjoying a party is not solely based on how adept the individual is at using Se. Introversion vs. extroversion plays a rather large role, for instance. As does Fe. Similarly, there are another factors to be taken into account. The type of party, for example. Another factor is the state of the individual. Under stress, an INxJ may have as strong of an urge to party as any typical ESxP might. So, you see what I mean.

    EDIT:
    Overall, I think it would be slightly more accurate to say...

    ESxP, ESxJ
    ENTP, ENFP
    ENxJ, ISxP
    ISTJ, ISFJ
    INxP, INxJ

    Yeah, I agree. If we're talking the kind of party where everyone's just there to get drunk, count me out. If there's actual games/movies/super bowl/reconnecting with old friends, etc going on, then I'm usually down.

    Judging by the ISXJ's I know AND the INXP's I know- INXP's enjoy the college parties a lot more than the ISXJ's.

    I guess I should have changed what I meant by 'party'.
    I know of a lot of Guardians who hate those kinds of parties mostly because of the disorder and rule-breaking that goes on.
    ENTP's and ENFP's are all over that stuff.

    I've always been quite party-hardy. When I was in college, I got into all that craziness, then it was house-parties, clubbing, wine bars, and now - drinks and music on the back deck with friends. Eventually I'll be in my rocking chair and the kids will hand me a sherry.

    Generally I'd say it's ExxP > IxxP > ExxJ > IxxJ, and also S > N. It's hard to classify beyond that but I think that ISxP > ENxP and ESxJ > INxP. I'm not sure about that last bit though. At that point it may come down to the individual.
