    I'd be quite surprised if you'd mistyped yourself.

    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!

    Here are some questions to help you sort it out:

    1. Do you judge how good a party was by how many people had good conversation with you and/or laughed at your jokes?

    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.

    Is this namecalling "ENTP" a compliment or the opposite?

    It's a compliment of course!

    What is more important to you: the truth of a new idea or the beauty?

    Today, I've listened to an introduction to Buddhism. Loved the thing until the speaker said that "there is no difference between soul and matter" AND "the soul takes on new bodies in successive incarnations"... Doesn't fit.

    Do you have to think about reasons before you realize you're feeling something?

    Eg. Why can't I concentrate on writing? About what am I thinking? Oh, husband has to take the plane about now. I should be worried about him. Yes, that's it! I'm worried!

    Hmm-the beauty is the truth of the idea. So I dig to find the truth then admire it's beauty for being what it is. I fall in love with protein crystal structures and abstract math equations. Bra-ket notation makes me feel.

    But no wrt to emotion- I recognize the emotion, sometimes very strongly, then distance to rationally analyze the emotion, to then plan a response to the emotion. (BTW that is an awesome description of how ENTPs sense emo)

    (And I was complimented as I much love the ENTP mind, while I do love my ENFP soul. But I also love to think, so being compared to the clever wit of an ENTP? Nothing could be more complimentary.)

    I dont like parties. I get lost on the beauty of music so I do love to dance.

    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?

    mostly the knowledge-but then how can I apply it to help/improve people

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

    No. I hate fixing things. My home repair efforts are things of extreme horror. I cant fix anything. But I do tinker with people.

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

    Gotta love Ne doms...


    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?

    Perhaps you mean developing Jungian models I can use to modify how to enhance secondary school education or organizational communication? Then yes.

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

    No-but I see this in ENTPs. Assuming this is a good NeTi groove-Applying ENXP symmetry:

    I'd assume most ENFPs would *withdraw* if when feeling deeply in an NeFi moment they were interrupted via logic intrusion? (withdraw rather than irritation) Ummm, interesting thought that one.

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

    Nope. My entp friend always does stuff-out in the real world interacting with it. But this "list of task competencies" sounds familiar wrt her mindset. I am content to gather info and play in my mind. Perhaps to develop Fi I need to go out and develop a catalog of Fi experiences.

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

    Puppy, I know next to nothing about MBTI, but based on your responses I'd say you're correctly typed as an ENFP.

    I'm betting on ENFP too :-) (and that's a compliment, too). Here's another one... the Rainbow Test.

    "Now that I know how the rainbow is made, it has lost some of its beauty for me."

    True or false?
