    Ah, very informative. Thanks for the info! never knew.

    Do any STs/SFs wanna jump in?

    TBH I don't know why they started being listed as SP and SJ, to begin with. I get the whole Si vs. Se thing, but in that case why not split the Ns into NJ and NP?

    Anecdotal side note: I've always related more to ESTPs than ESFJs.

    Re: the OP, I'd definitely say STs are the "cut the crap, suck it up, get it done, and do it now" types.

    I'd rather they type via temperaments; i.e. EJ/EP/IP/IJ because they are more similar. An ISTP is going to be largely different from an ISTJ.

    Yeah I agree with this. I find 1st/2nd function groupings to be much more useful.

    Oh yeah, I'm quite fond of these temperaments too. I love my fellow EPs. That said, @EJCC has said she relates to ESTP more than ESFJ. And I can imagine quite a few ISTJs and INFJs not relating to each other at all. But I guess there really is no winning when it comes to trying to establish these groupings. That said, I prefer NF/NT/SF/ST or EP/EJ/IP/IJ to the temperaments we have now.

    But then it's not as cool and organized as having the two letter groupings. haha

    I get what you guys mean though. I'm sure @johnnyyukon and I could go back and forth for ages with all the Ne. But definitely grouping by second function is very useful to (obviously I relate to ESFP a lot since I typed as it for a brief moment).

    I do think SJ/SP/NJ/NP and ST/SF/NT/NF groupings are more useful and accessible to n00bs. It would be a terrible idea to throw function theory at people as soon as they take the test! And I think they all have their uses.
