    My theory was that ET types would be considered the friendly loners.. however, it seems that it is mostly NP types that are calling themselves out.

    That makes sense.. Ne makes a person interested in the outside world but so focused on ideas that the person can gain satisfaction from being alone.. this is likely why the ENXP types are considered the introverted extraverts and INXP types with good use of Ne feel the same way.

    A probable exception to the rule is the INFJ.

    INFJ's are a bit different. The other friendly loners are friendly because they actually like you. The INFJ is often just being polite, but you aren't supposed to know that.

    How are you getting on with this? Obviously it sounds not dissimilar to Occupational Therapy, so your take on it interests me. I suspect it's difficult not to derive a sense of satisfaction from altruistic work, but do you enjoy the day-to-day stuff?

    us?
    Well I have a passionately love of justice, and a love to be impassioned by injustice; that mixed with an investigative personality, a good memory bank when required, and a playfulness with words makes law sound very appealing. If you can get through the procrastination, and not give up when it comes to what seems as trivial information - I think it could be almost perfect.

    Oh my, same here! I think it's because I respond to people differently, and I like to compensate in social situations (if no one's quiet - I'm quiet, if no one's loud, I'm loud etc.). I come into my own one-on-one with someone I care about, trust, and respect.

    Aww. I bet he relishes coming to see you. I have a second cousin called Lewis (the little one in my profile picture), apparently he talks about me a lot despite seeing me only once a year. It's interesting how the inxp might come into it: I get an almost self-actualising satisfaction out of being a positive influence, but I do this mainly through teaching; helping him to see the world in a more complex light, enjoying music together, etc. But I appreciate my cousins most for bringing out my sense of play, something which is natural to me, but is suppressed.

    Perhaps I would be best off working with children, just so long as I could return to solitude at the end of the day (even though that sounds a little judgmental and sucky to me, I guess it would be my way of keeping up my professionalism and being the best I can be). I do know that you can branch off into pediatrics from Occupational Therapy, though, and Horticultural Therapist sound nice, too.

    I'm a loner, and it's not something I've ever been ashamed of. Even though I'm a loner, I'm still pretty "cool" whenever I'm around people. One more to fit your theory.

    This is what I think I am.

    I am nice and friendly with others and enjoy companionship BUT I have trouble with intimacy and definitely am my own drummer. I strongly believe in being independent and that sort of makes me aloof around others. I am the guy that knows everyone on campus but only a few people really well.
    As with most things ENTP say, I can say this applies to me almost totally, except for the bolded part.

    On a side note, MBTIcentral have been extremely helpful in letting me find my type by the virtue of like-minded people, esp. ENTP.

    So like-minded, I wonder how I've ever thought to have been another type.

    I think most people are friendly. Many people are loners too.

    So I would say ISJs are the most likely friendly loner since they are the highest percentage introverts.

    Accept the past. Live for the present. Look forward to the future.
