    Default Preference combinations (other than SJ, SP, NT, NF)

    Dunno why but I felt like trying to describe some preference combinations other than the usual Kiersian temperaments. They're not terribly exhaustive descriptions. If anyone wants to add more or whatever, go ahead.

    • IPs - Individualists; don't usually have any particular desire to either lead or follow. Want to be left to their own devices. Can be passive and lazy. May withdraw from the world when things go bad or habitually avoid problems/conflict. Outwardly mellow and easygoing, but can be moody or temperamental.
    • IJs - Studious, thoughtful, thorough. May come off as overly serious, rigid, or 'stick-in-the-muds.'
    • EPs - Energetic, enthusiastic, fun-loving. The most spontaneous and impulsive of the types. May be hyperactive or too quick moving.
    • EJs - Good at directing and organizing people. Usually have strong/forceful personalities; can impose themselves on others and be bossy or 'control freaks.'
    • EFs - Typically friendly people persons. Usually quite expressive and energetic. They're good around people, have good social sense.
    • ITs - Calm, distant, aloof. Usually good at keeping their wits about them. May have particular difficulty expressing their emotions or come off as cold.
    • IFs - Typically gentle and softspoken. May come off as shy or meek; may have a hard time speaking up.
    • ETs - Bold, assertive, outspoken. May come off as overconfident/cocky or have a tendency to walk over people.
    • TJs - Decisive, strong-willed, organized, exacting, often make natural leaders. Can be harsh or strict. Can have a tendency to 'bulldoze' people.
    • FPs - Softhearted, go-with-the-flow people. Tend not to be easily angered; when angered, it usually dissipates quickly. Can be wishy-washy and flighty.
    • NPs - Unconventional, absentminded, scatterbrained. See connections readily and may go on tangents. May be easily bored and distracted or inattentive. Sense of humor often absurd or nonsensical. May be particularly indecisive, as they like leaving options open to explore many possibilities.

    I've always been astounded at how well these particular temperaments correspond to the "four humor" theory: IxxP being "Phlegmatic", IxxJ being "Melancholy", ExxP being "Sanguine", and ExxJ being "Choleric". They're pretty much the same.
