    Also I kind of like being an enigma, wrapped in a riddle, shrouded in mystery.
    Sweet, then you know how I feel! Or think? Heh.

    Well, anyway, I guess I will just have to do more research to see what I am. Self-knoweldge is essential.

    Kiersey couldn't use functional analysis because some types that have opposite cognitive processes are not opposite temperaments.

    For instance: The opposite of the ENTJs' cognitive processes (Te Ni Se Fi) is ISFP (Fi Se Ni Te) but the opposite of it's temperament (abstract utilitarian) is not the ISFP temperament (concrete utilitarian), it's concrete cooperator.

    ^Keirsey decided to avoid the problem because temperament is observable while function use isn't, necessarily.

    Are there any good online resources, or does one necessarily have to buy the book?

    I put myself as ISFJ/INFJ because I can relate to some descriptions of both of them(compared to all other types those two resemble me best)... although I do lean more towards N I think. However I don't relate to Everything that is in one or the other, it's like alittle of both... so why can't I put both of them in? o.O I don't really see why someone has to be completely one type and expect them to be everything it describes them to be. We are not clones o.o but w/e it's not a huge deal to me >.>. I like both! so hah!

    Heh. Interesting - with that one, I relate more with the Teacher...and not just because I am a teacher - although that helps - but yeah...Interesting....Let's take the test and see.

    I don't think they're that different. Temperament is just more holistic and harder to falsify because you're going from generals to particulars. Any outliers can be lumped into 'things that aren't MBTI'.
