    No, it means you're me.

    So... what are we having for breakfast?

    yap, yap.
    I'm still getting to know you (and everyone else around here, for that matter), but I don't think you're ENTP so much as a currently stressed-out ENFP. You definitely seem to have a strong grasp of Te/Fi principles, and while your posts and expression might have that Ne-style randomness, what you write is always clear to me. You don't appear to have that INTP-on-crack vibe that ENTPs have.

    As a non-Fi user I can't fathom how the hell it operates, it's a strange and mysterious thang, you get it so I say you got it.

    Also, stop listening to the INTJs, they do nothing but stir up trouble!
    Heck, Trinity, here, has on occasion been known to doubt that I'm really an INTJ, because I don't stir up enough trouble.

    Another thing to keep in mind is function combinations looking like anoter function. Like Ti + Fe looking like Fi, Fe + Ti looking like Te etc. See this thread- http://www.typologycentral.com/forum...binations.html

    So your Ni could be third strongest, but wouldn't be used as a tertiary, if that makes sense.
    So much to learn . . . so little time. Where can I get more information on this?

    I got 6/7 too. I think it means we're mice.

    2. When you study on a topic, are you more interested in the cool ways you can apply your new knowledge rather than the knowledge itself?

    3. Do you tinker with things just to do it?

    4. Do you love deadlines primarily for the whooshing sound they make as they fly by?

    5. Do you regard such inessential tasks as cleaning, laundry, and tidying up as bothersome distractions from the really important things, such as teaching yourself how to program in Python, or play WoW?

    6. Is interruption of your moments of concentration the best way to irritate you?

    7. For you, is knowing that you can perform a task nearly as satisfying as actually doing it?

    If you score more than four Yesses on this quiz, odds are good you're an ENTP.

    I'm 6/7, too (no to #4).

    I'll just have to reclassify myself as ENTP. Or a mouse.

    I answered no to #1. I find a party is good when it goes totally off the intended course. Conversation moves onto topics which would offend most PC people, silliness takes over. I like anarchy, the unexpected, and good stories for later.

    I am laughing so hard I can barely type. Does the crack aspect of an ENTP get on your nerves? Good to know as my bosses bosses boss is INTJ and I should only mirror an INTJ (I am learning).

    So, with respect to my beloved ENFP (Happy Puppy and the fact that together we complete so many due to Ne to Ne Dimensional Conversions as in the 14th Membrane we are all 10^-23 M away from each other), I can deffinately vouch that she is an ENFP. When I try to Ti her, we end up in a cat fight in the mud pit at work with the engineers placing bets and egging it on for entertainment. Who wouldn't LUV two strong women battling?
    And I sampled her tears and they have all of the chemical markings of an ENFP in Fi pain, and none of the SA (smart-ass) chemicals of an ENTP faking the feeling of an Fi connection.

    So, here's to Crack and Ne!!! Long live the INTJ, luv the deep pool of thought, although I have no idea how in the world that is my shadow...

    Ahhhh, that would be because I am staring at the sun. A little blind right now.

    Actually, real-life ENTPs are quite likable. Online ENTPs are hit-or-miss. Basically, just skip past the "fight over ideas for fun" game, and just stick with exchanging interesting ideas with an INTJ (show off your cool ideas), and you'll be fine. Oh, and do not lightly accuse an INTJ of being dishonest w/r to ideas, especially during a serious debate: we are (usually) not intentionally dishonest, so accusations such as that tell us that you're not "being serious" and not worth listening to. Accusing an INTJ of dishonesty is effectively the "nuclear option." If we are being dishonest, you have a very serious problem, far beyond the question of who "wins" the argument.

    Check out Richard Feynman's style of presentation in the Messenger Lectures series in Project Tuva.. He is often typed as ENTP due to his antics depicted in several autobiographical books about his life. However, his presentations in these lectures are clear, concise, to the point, very proficiently using Te. There's even a section where he explains Babylonian vs Greek approaches to mathematics, where - in MBTI terms - Babylonian is very Te, with no formal rules, while Greek is very Ti, starting from first principles and axioms. He clearly conveys exactly how physicists think about physics. If he can communicate complicated ideas this clearly, there's no reason any ENTP can't do the same. (Or he's a seriously mistyped INTJ!)

    So, here's to Crack and Ne!!! Long live the INTJ, luv the deep pool of thought, although I have no idea how in the world that is my shadow...
