    Why do we always come here?

    I guess we'll never know.

    It's like a kind of torture,
    To have to watch this show.

    Springer would definitely be ESTP.
    Springers are fun and lively dogs.

    Do you really think Ne, Ni, P and J apply to dogs? Are dogs capable of intuition? I'm leaning towards no.
    Well, I was of the opinion that the MBTI typing of dogs was more about "how do you perceive the different breeds"/"what would they be if they were humans", not what type do you actually think they are.

    That said, I do think they might have a more primitive version of the cognitive functions, and since many breeds have been bred for different personality traits, you'd certainly find some statistical correlation between different setups and different breeds. Still, you'll find all "types" in all breeds, and no, it's not MBTI.

    Wrapped up in our alleged human superiority, are we?

    Intuition probably applies more to most other animals than it does to humans. There is ample evidence that animals sense things before we do -- otherwise known as intuition.

    Animals (including dogs) also dream, providing evidence of self-awareness, so that should say something there.

    The collie looks more ENFJ or INFJ. Too serious-looking to be an ENFP.

    Haha, the animals sense things before we do, and we call this sensing "intuition"?

    In the in the MBTI sense of the word "intuition" they can only be N and "big picture" relative to the S dogs, and what you're describing sounds more like having acute senses, not Ne or Ni at work.

    And N is also "seeing" what will come next. So it's sensing something before it happens.

    True, but "seeing what will come next" by combining a lot of different evidence to form a pattern. I'd hardly call someone intuitive simply because when they hear a train in the distance and see train tracks in front of them, they predict that a train will pass them soon.
