    Default Where do the types gather?

    Sometimes I see a thread that asks, "Where can I find type X?" Overall I've found quite a few places where you can see a concentration of a certain type if you are looking for one in particular.

    For example you can find a ton of ESTP's at any popular sports game (and a fair amount of other SP's too). You can find a concentration of INT's among university faculty (especially INTP's). If you want to find some INFP's then just go to a poetry reading, and I'll guarantee that you'll find several there. And SJ's are easy to find in any established organization like a church or corporation. I'm sure a hospital is full of both ESFJ and ISFJ employees.

    Where else can you find a certain type concentrated together? Overall I'm not sure where to find a collection of any of these types:

    ENTP
    ENTJ
    ENFJ
    INFJ
    (and to a lesser extent ENFP)

    ENTPs? What about corporate marketing, political strategy; maybe even public relations?

    NFs are drawn to humanitarian missions. In Peace Corps, equivalent government agencies and in-country NGOs?

    I think corporate marketing and probably have many more ES types for every ENTP you'd find. I'm not sure about political strategy.

    I could see NGO's attracting NF's, but I'm not really sure which ones. Do you think several ENFJ's would work together at an NGO? I don't really know. What I do know is my wife volunteered at a local food bank for a while, and most of the people there were serving community service of some kind.

    Corporate anything doesn't seem to gel well with my strain of ENTP syndrome lol

    Humanitarian/philanthropy is what I've always gone in for. But I know three ENTP's who are all college professors. The type that are very active and travel around doing guest lectures and stuff. I've thought David Crystal is an ENTP for a long time...

    In Europe I've found more ENTJ's working as independent smallholders, ruling their own little empire, than having to suck up and schmooze to climb corporate ladders.

    ENFP's make good teachers. My brother's a driving instructor and finds it more rewarding than any other job he's had. Their characteristic lack of planning tends to be well compensated for by their enthusiasm and ability to adapt lesson and teaching style to the individual needs of each student.

    I don't know if it was on INTPc or here that a few people suggested that ENFJs would be found concentrated at churches. To that I must say. I couldn't fathom it until my bosses wife tested as ENFJ. He still complains about her bible-thumping ways and that she is a at church every time the door is open. I am much less saintly so I would love to hear where you can find a group of us! I know there are many activities that would interest me such as book clubs, cooking clubs and probably even self-help seminars since that stuff intrigues the hell out me if time would allow. I think humanitarian causes are a good for NF hunting and helping people certainly shows up early at least in my case. I began volunteering and took on "helping jobs" from my very early teens through young adulthood. I've always wanted to meet several ENFJs to see what they are like from an outside perspective. I've pretty much assumed that if their lives are anything like mine they are super busy people .

    A lot of my profs have an ENTP vibe, including most of the better ones I've had (I would guess many of the others are ISTP or INTJ). Might depend on your field though - I could see some types gravitating to particular subjects.

    Relationships have normal ebbs and flows. They do not automatically get better and better when the participants learn more and more about each other. Instead, the participants have to work through the tensions of the relationship (the dialectic) while they learn and group themselves and a parties in a relationships. At times the relationships is very open and sharing. Other time, one or both parties to the relationship need their space, or have other concerns, and the relationship is less open. The theory posits that these cycles occur throughout the life of the relationship as the persons try to balance their needs for privacy and open relationship.
