    Hmmm...I was hoping someone could clarify the whole thing a bit more, but alas....

    Gahhhhhhhhh!!!

    Okay, anyway, I guess the solution will never be found. Is a person who is Ne>Fi>Fe>Ni>Ti>Se>Te>Si an ENFP or an ENFJ or an ENFX?

    It's that people either assume "the leading theory" (one of several) of function order is correct, and base many of their self-assessments on this arbitrary scheme; or they take a test (which may test something meaningful, or not) and use the order it spits out. Either way it's kind of a barbed wire canoe.

    You're a Keirseyan? I'm a crazy fart - pleased to meet ya! *holds out hand*

    Nahhh, but seriously - how is that all that different?? (Yeah, I'm an ignorant person, but at least I admit it and ask questions to correct it).

    Keirsey doesn't use functional analysis. I think he explains it in Please Understand Me II but I haven't read it in years.

    In my case, it's because my best-fit type doesn't fit all that well. The closest thing I've come to is INFP, but I don't feel much kinship with other INFPs for the most part. I'm way more J than my husband but too indecisive to think J in general. And I'm the most T in my family-- which isn't saying much, but it skews my perspective. Basically I don't think I'm capable of objectivity and I can't quite identify the middles, so I reserve judgment.

    Also I kind of like being an enigma, wrapped in a riddle, shrouded in mystery.

    Hmm...I'd read the book, but I'm a conundrum. Nahhh, I guess I'll have to take a look.

    1. It's not a true scientific theory.
    2. People are complex.
    3. As with anything, nature vs. nuture ALWAYS interact. Sometimes it's difficult to pull out what's nature in an environment that has demanded otherwise for a long time.
    4. Some "x"s make more sense than others if you are a CP theorist. (i.e. INxJ makes sense b/c you can still identify yourself as an Ni dom, yet INTx doesn't as much, because you'd either be Ni/Te or Ti/Ne which are very different ways of being, and very different ways of interacting with the world.
