    are you projecting or is that something you've observed ?
    can you tie it to funciton analysis ?

    I know i am - but when the ideal is no longer ideal -
    Projection + Observing. All NTPs I know (I must admit I don't know many) are this way.
    NTPs are analyzers and critics. They like something, and they'll try to discover, understand all of that 'something'. But once that job it's over, once it has been truly exploded... it's time to move on onto somethig new. I think Ne has a great influence, so I'd say INFPs (and therefore, ENFPs).
    It's not like J types, who can (and usually are) be obsessed with something, but that obsession lasts way longer.

    <- Very true.

    And INFPs don't ?

    More cautious, I think. Slower in transitions. Feeling always gets in the way.

    for me, I go through phases..phases where I'll be really hooked on doing something, and then I'll come up with new ideas, and forget about the older ones..but it changes, and I guess I can be a little obsessive :P
    Is it that by its indefiniteness it shadows forth the heartless voids and immensities of the universe, and thus stabs us from behind with the thought of annihilation, when beholding the white depths of the milky way?

    I'm obsessive. People, places, things, subjects, whatever. And my obsessions last long.

    Why was this put in NF section if you want to hear from all the types? Just a random thought.
