    Default Friendship patterns

    I recently made a list of my friends and family. An overwhelming amount of them I figure or know to be Ns.

    Are Ns friends with other Ns more often the Ss, and vice versa?

    It's the same for me. I have a couple of well-rounded ISTJ's and an ESTP, but other than that, all my friends and many acquaintances are N's.

    Mightier than the tread of marching armies is the power of an idea whose time has come

    Mom - INFP (tested)
    Dad - ESTJ (assumed)

    4 best friends:
    1) ESFJ (tested)
    2) ENFJ (tested, and the one who introduced me to type theory)
    3) xSxJ (assumed)
    4) ISFJ (assumed)

    The boy:
    INxJ (balanced T/F)

    Really close friends include:
    ISFP, INFP, ENFJ (another), ISFJ (another), ISTJ (ex-roomie), ENFP, INFJ

    Mostly Fs. Mostly Is. Mostly Js. Even on the S/N divide.

    And, I'm mostly T. Mostly E. Mostly P. And, N.

    Are Ns friends with other Ns more often the Ss, and vice versa?
    Nope, not in my case.

    I think I am drawn to J types because of my really high P; this to me is sub-consciously more attractive for those I choose to surround myself with, than N vs S. I'm hoping I can live vicariously through them, or their J-skills will diffuse into me over time.

    J-Jealousy.

    * and besides, it is great fun, and stretch of my associative skills, to play in the field of abstract with all my S posses. I like to have the chance to make comparisons/examples/associations, that Ss can get. It tests me to 'speak' in a variety of tongues...which gains me the skill to be able to relate to a hella lot more people. I am not much stimulated playing in my own field, unless it's a take-all, grand championship; then, I love the abstract interplay. But, mostly, I love going for the opposites.

    Here's a pattern : they all like me.

    Seriously though, I see no correlation with MBTI whatsoever.

    Mostly no. I do have a pattern of finding the more mentally/emotionally rewarding friendships I have are with other Ns but most of my friends are SPs, I like em fun

    No, it's actually very evenly split between S's and N's, both for my friends and family.

    My best friend Charlie is an ESTP I reckon. That guy just does what he pleases. Got a mind of his own does Charlie.

    I am friends with almost all Ns, then I am friends with 4 ISTJs and an ESTP and an ESFJ. But almost everyone I really talk to is an N (my exception is with my ISTJ friends, they don't seem to mind going deep).
