1. n =11
s =9
f =5
t = 7

NSTF. I guess I really shouldn't have skipped that one question about the bottom line for me.

2. f = 12
n = 11
s = 7
t = 5

FNST

So from what I understand, the letters in descending order display your function order, they leave E/I up to you. So mine could be INFP or ENFJ...how did I come up an intuitive? I gave such Sensor answers to some questions!

Speaking of which:
It is more important to be able to appreciate the profound meaning of a central metaphor than to notice what color shirt someone is wearing.
Okay, is anyone actually going to disagree with this? This question made me laugh.

My ISFP wife doesn't give a shit about metaphors. The color of a shirt, or the sunset, or colors in general are infinitely more important to her.

It's not a function test, functions have nothing to do with it. Translated into the Fudjack MBTI, your test score translates to inFp. But that does translate to Fi dominant.

People that think metaphors are stupid probably, and people that think that it's better to be immersed in "the real world".

6. Now that I see more people taking an interest in Fudjack's MBTI theory, I'll explain it a little bit.

John Fudjack says that the MBTI's formula for determining your type relies on its P/J scale. Fudjack translates the P/J scale to "preferring closure (j)" types and "preferring non-closure (p) (or openness)" types.

Toward a Diversity of Psychological Type in Organization

[Disclaimer: I don't necessarily think Fudjack himself believes in this view, only that it is a logical extension of a fundamental error found in MBTI theory. This error does not, by itself, disprove the MBTI. It only shows that there is a possible alternative to the MBTI's formula by revealing that the MBTI relies on a basic assumption which is not necessarily true of personality types.]

[Also, Fudjack used the term "logistic" in the article posted above. Logistic | Definition of Logistic by Merriam-Webster - I don't think Fudjack intended to use the word "logistic" but "logical." INFJs like Fudjack often make mistakes like this when trying to sound like an INTP. ]

By this rule, says Fudjack, all INFPs (Fi-dominants) are, by arbitrary definition, openness-seeking types. But, he says, there is no reason why an Fi-dominant can't be closure-seeking. Thus, by eliminating the MBTI's basic assumption, there is the possibility of 16 new types.

I know what this really says, Brainfuck.

I know what this really says, Brainfuck.
NFST, as an example, is not a function preference order.
