    I have some OCD tendancies but I don't fit the official criteria. I suppose it says something unflattering about me that I actually looked it up to be sure.

    Another board I am on conciders that the polite thing to do, even though it is obvious who is sending it.

    I just assumed it was standard. I can quit now, or at least try to.

    Actually I think it depends more on your S/N preference than on E/I. If you think about it in terms of temperament types, then Sensors are more likely to have a strong sense of J or P. According to temperament theory, Intuitives gather information about the big picture and then use their Thinking or Feeling function to interpret it (so they are either NF or NT in temperament). Sensors, on the other hand, gather concrete information and then use their Judging or Perceiving function to organize it (making them either SPs or SJs). So it would follow that the J/P function would feel more central to your personality if you were a Sensor.

    The fact that in the MBTI system introverts Js have a dominant perceiving function is a clear profund flaw of the whole theory. This is one of the (many) reasons why socionics is a much more wholesome personality theory.

    Socionics has its issues with functions too*. And it depends a lot on your definitions of the functions...I'll probably have some insight there in a few years, bbl.

    For example, I'm a perceiver, yet by all accounts severely Ti dominant. So I don't fit anywhere nicely within Socionics except in regard to intertype relations, where everything fits with me being INTp.

    Perhaps, but definitely not as many as MBTI!

    Why is that a profound flaw rather than perhaps an inconvenient nomenclature? Users trained on the actual instrument know J/P point to the extraverted function, which is only the dominant for E's? It might be a trick for people to pick up but it isn't about the theory, only about understanding the code. I admit that socionics has a perhaps easier-to-understand method with j and p but...
