^I knew the ad hominems would come eventually (this forum loves them, apparently). Thanks. For your opinion mostly, because I hadn't read much of your posts before and had no idea how you discuss things. Now I know.

And simulated came and provided basically no evidence either, except that "you don't seem like other INFJs/Ni doms." But the point is, I don't owe simulatedworld or anyone else to explain anything. Especially about myself. And even moreso when they will think what they want regardless of what I say.
What does Se have to do with this? I'm not convinced you know much of anything about how an INF behaves, and you said as much yourself, so I have nothing to say to that.
Actually I made a number of excellent arguments to promote the idea that you use Si rather than Ni--I'm sorry if you didn't understand them, but that's not the same thing as me failing to provide any evidence.

Well, sometimes you do and sometimes you don't. Success is the name of the game for me, but I may not necessarily define "success" the same way as most people.

Have you ever seen what a real ENTP does when he/she runs out of arguments??
They make the whole thing a joke, and make you (the person who won the argument) feel like a fool for arguing to ever win.
Sometimes they do that--that's the Ne response. Other times, though, if they get upset, their weaker functions will come out. Si says "I must be ENTP because that's how I've always identified myself" and Fe gets especially rude just to poke for reactions. I know myself well enough to know that this is often what I do when I get really pissed about an argument. I've seen other ENTPs do it plenty of times too--ENTPs like to project an apathetic image but they care more than they let on.
I think it's kind of silly to suggest that ENTPs would always respond to this situation exactly the same way. That's pretty oversimplified, don't you think?
I imagine you're just poking for reactions now, of course. I doubt very seriously that your type read is poor enough to actually believe I'm ESFP.
In that old thread, Zarc argues that ENTPs have no interest in winning or competing--"there is no care for winning."
Surely as an ENTP yourself you can tell how inaccurate her portrayal is?
If you could be anything you want, I bet you'd be disappointed--am I right?
