My mother says I am either an ENTP, an ESTP or ENTJ to her (she is into mbti as well).
I don't really know what my father would say.
About friends, among those who know about mbti, I've been types either as ESTP, ENTP, ENTJ or ISTP. I think the others would type me as one of those as well.
Most people:INFP 9w1 sp/sx
Family: ISFP 9w1 sx/sp
The ENFP ex-boyfriend:IxFP 4w5 sp/sx
George Washington Carver:ESFJ 7w6 so/sp
Sadly, I don't think any of them stupid enough to think I'm any type containing the letter E.
"Note that the word “mute” (from Latin mutus and Greek μύειν) is regarded by linguists as an onomatopoeic formation referring not to silence but to a certain fundamental opacity of human being, which likes to show the truth by allowing it to be seen hiding."
- Anne Carson
Some say INTJ.
Others say ISTP.
And some say INFJ.
A student said to his master: "You teach me fighting, but you talk about peace. How do you reconcile the two?" The master replied: "It is better to be a warrior in a garden than to be a gardener in a war." - unknown/Chinese
Probably INFJ. Other people tend to insist on that type for me more than I do. I was more organized and driven when younger, so I think they would typically say J. It's funny because I am organized, structured, acting, upon ideas and concrete objects, but when it comes to people I'm the opposite. I can organize events, can enjoy reasoned debates, and I keep my stuff organized because i could never find anything otherwise, and it makes me feel anxious to have random piles of stuff around.
My social interface is less J than it is for most Ps (if that makes sense). I think that's what Ni does to Fe for some people. Last week a young teenage student declared in a lesson, "you're not a teacher! I was talking the whole time you were and you didn't tell me to stop." It made me feel a bit discouraged, but I know she didn't mean anything by it. She kinda blabs with a limited amount of control over it, and she's cute, smart, I like her, so I just ignore what comes into conflict with what I'm trying to do - hence the conversation problems. I lack the ability to force people to do anything - even within the normal range of what I'm supposed to push. My INFJ brother is the same way, and my Fi-dom mother and sister to a point, but my sister can feel more directive in a way. She is still extremely Fi-dom P, though.
