    why are you here?
    That I was typed an ENTP and read a long article on ENTP and ADD shortly after.

    It took me a while to find out I was an ENFP instead. I behave a lot like an NT at times.

    An ENFJ.

    I was out at a pub with some work colleagues, we got talking about human potential and what it is that we are all looking for. We talked about Maslow's hierarchy of needs. The ENFJ thought Love was the answer to everything. I disagreed. Eventually all the other S people melted away and we didn't even notice.

    I came home believing I'd met my soulmate.

    I started researching some of the topics we'd discussed. I found Kiersey's site. I bought Please Understand Me II. I read about Rationals.
    I cried.
    I've been hooked ever since.

    I don't remember exactly how I found out about it, but I think I came across one test and had read my type description, then ISTP. It was close, but not accurate. I showed it to my friends, Meta/Hexis/Evan/etc. We've been hooked ever since. I love how occasionally a conversation can lead to the statement, "pfft...typical NF..." lol I do remember being the first of us to stumble on it.

    I've had an obsession with the letters M, B, T and I all my life. I'd see them in dreams, I'd see them in my soup. One day while investigating the Internets I decided I'd plug them into a search engine. These crazy personality theories came up and intrigued me.
