    Thought this was relevant:

    Split-half reliability of the MBTI scales is good, although test-retest reliability is sensitive to the time between tests.

Within each scale, as measured on Form G, about 83% of categorizations remain the same when retested within nine months, and around 75% when retested after nine months. About 50% of people tested within nine months remain the same overall type and 36% remain the same after nine months.[28] For Form M (the most current form of the MBTI instrument) these scores are higher (see MBTI Manual, p. 163, Table 8.6).
    ...so, if you're the extreame of your type, chances are you wont change upon multiple takings of the test, but if you're in the middle 50%, you've got a good shot at coming out with something different

    or at least that's as best as I could interpret

    That IS relevant. Thanks! If I can remember far enough back, my former, inaccurate results had me near the "middle of the road." I did notice in my recent results that I'm 70% or above in all four categories. Anyway...

    P.s. Perhaps I do retain a little 'F' in that I procrastinate-- something I consider an 'F' trait/behavior. Doing things when I *feel* like doing them, or absolutely have to...

    That seems like a strange stance to me. My two most consistent letters on tests are IxxJ. I'm usually N, but my T/F is switching all the time.

    Purely judging test "scores," my results are strong 'T,' but in everyday life, when I make decisions... Man, I'm not sure- e.g. It's a matter of "What i SHOULD do vs. What i WANT to do/What i can get away with"... Hmm :/

    But, what if the development of one function overpowers previous default function? Especially if the first function was weak in score in the first place.
