    Interesting to hear that from an ESFJ.

    I always test as an INTP but I'm pretty positive I'm not. (Order of likelyhood = ISTP>INTJ>>INTP). I've never come across a very accurate test, I see them more as a guideline for which descriptions you should look into, rather than an absolute mark of type.

    Ha ... this strikes me as NT-like humor.

    The issue with ISTJ vs INTJ switch-hitting (at least according to classic type dynamics theory) is that
    -- ISTJ's INFERIOR function is ==> iNtuition, ( with Sensing=dominant internal)
    -- INTJ's INFERIOR function is ==> Sensing (with iNtuition=domiant internal)

    So in this case, it's not just a simple one-letter leap, it's a first-to-worst function and worst-to-first issue, assuming all the other I-T-J preferences are firm. Not too many people can pull that off on a consistent basis. My first go-round at the MBTI showed me landing in the S function as well, but when I analyzed the questions, I found I was answering not according to my own preferences, but those of my family expectations and job roles. I'm actually a very strong intuitive, but externally - all my life - I have had to fight chronic Sensory battles before relaxing into my inner N.

    It could be that a strong external J function is fuzzying-up the dominant introverted function on the testing. I think the suggestion of looking at NT vs ST/SJ is your best bet in clarifying True Type. Also - the MBTI is more statistically reliable than other instruments.

    I agree with your central theme.

    If I were to "switch" teams, I think the easiest transition would be to return to an INFJ role.

    I'm usually an INTP. Sometimes I've got INTJ though.
