    I'll break it down for you. All of the text in bold = informative (or perceptive statements). All of the plain text is directive.

    Go to INFJ or INFP? a closer look

    Go down to Your Preferred Communication Style and read the link in its entirety.

    While the link in question contrasts INFPs with INFJs, you can substitute "ISFP" for "INFP" in the text in question.

    All types communicate in very distinctive styles, or forms. The forms by which INFJs communicate are directive; the forms by which IFPs communicate are informative.

    This is a very well-known and researched feature of MBTI theory.

    Once you become familiar with what these forms look like--and it isn't rocket science, it's just pattern recognition--you can easily read an sufficiently long interview with someone like George Harrison (or Bob Dylan or John Lennon) and go "Oh, this person prefers an informative communication style. Therefore, he can't be an INFJ."

    When you start doing this it can be complex. Imagine using a flow-chart to determine whether an animal is a cat or a fox. When you get more experienced and adept at this it's really easy.

    As a very close ENTP friend put it, "you don't suffer fools gladly." But I personally don't mind confidence in ones abilities when one has those abilities.

    No wonder I'm a Floyd Mayweather (ESFP) fan!

    Ahh, you seem to be very confused.

    Here, this should help you out:

    In typology we categorize personality types using four-letter abbreviations to denote preferences in terms of preferred styles of Perception (taking in information) Judgment (making decisions with it.)

    There are eight different possible designations which, in MBTI (that's Myers-Briggs Personality Inventory) terms represent four "sliding scales" of preference.

    So when you're first starting out, try to determine through observation whether a person is:

    1) Introverted or Extroverted,

    2) Sensing or iNtuitive,

    3) Thinking or Feeling (we discussed this one above--scroll up if you need a reminder!) and

    4) Perceiving or Judging.

    Don't worry too much about confusing terms like "Se" or "Ti" just yet--for now just focus on the fundamentals.

    If you need any more help with understanding these terms or the way they apply to personality study, feel free to PM me!
    If you could be anything you want, I bet you'd be disappointed--am I right?

    Apparently we are experiencing a Typology 101 lesson via all this arrogant bickering. At least the ego contest is good for something, even if the information is all also available in a simple wikipedia article...

    So what are the 8 functions again?

    I assume you know them (Fi, Fe, Ti, Te, Ni, Ne, Si, Se) but if not, the obvious place to start is Amazon.com: Psychological Types (Collected Works of C.G. Jung Vol.6) (9780691018133): C. G. Jung, Gerhard Adler, R. F.C. Hull: Books

    Incidentally--or not--one of the best writers on the subject of NDEs is also an INTJ--P.M.H Atwater:
