    Default Animals & MBTI (A thread brought to you via 'an attempt to satiate boredom')

    Before all you 'rationale' types come in and burst my bubble - yes, I'm aware that other animals (at least to our knowledge) do not have a complex enough psyche to have a Myers-Briggs personality type - however - have you ever caught yourself thinking 'wow, that squirrel is such an NF - look how it helps the other squirrels gather their nuts, but then goes to her nest seeming to need positive affirmation from her mate-squirrel'?

    It all started with my gorgeous Siberian Husky - who is such a little ExFP.
    If you know anything about Sibes you'll know they need constant attention ('pack' mentality), have boundless energy, are as playful as they come, friendly to a fault, super bright, fiercely independent (and resist all attempts at control - ever tried to train one? lol) but very loyal, distinctly loveable, easily offended but just as easily forgiving and the most ADD of all dog types. (You can be wrestling with a Sibe and have their undivided attention, someone's about to claim victory an....OH LOOK SOMETHING SHINEY)

    Uhhh...anyway.
    Have you ever started typing animals (whether consciously or not)?

    If so, share your 'findings' - and let me know I'm not the only one who has become out of control with applying MBTI





    ****This is wholly a 'just for fun' kind of excercise - again, I'm not implying animals really have types that can be defined by MBTI

    haha, I was just think about this today.

    I'm sure most cats would be INxx hehe. Mine would be INFP. My parents dog would be ESFP.

    INTPs are Sasquatches. Almost impossible to find in the wild, and hate cameras. And hairy.

    Dogs are always fundamentally misunderstood when it comes to typing.

    My old cat (A Russian Blue) was definitely ESFP - playful, loved company, totally focussed on gratifying all of his sensory needs.

    Of my current cats (also Russian Blues), Maks the boy cat is some type of EFJ (super-friendly, chatty, loves company, likes routine), while his sister, Kira is probably INFJ (loves to hide under things, curious and independent, very friendly).

    My current cat is:

    -demanding
    -is very affectionate to me but only socially-acceptably friendly to others, or dismissive of others
    -seems to be more of a feeler than a thinker, although I'm not certain of that
    -is very talkative
    -is easily startled
    -is a tuxedo cat
    -is more docile than aggressive, although she does communicate with her claws sometimes
    -is a slave to routine (she meows at me and tugs on my leg if I don't go to bed on time!)
    -is very clean
    -has a long attention span/does not give up easily

    That's all the traits I can think of for now. What type would she be?

    ESFJ -Due to the fact that she recognises a clear social hierarchy.

    I have often mused about this with Hendo and we have come to the conclusion that our dog is an ESFD - Extraverted Sensing Feeling Dog.

    If both perceiving and judging functions are the means through which one interacts with the world, Dodger uses neither because he interacts with the world as a dog!

    (He displays dominant Se, auxiliary Fi and we don't know what his tertiary function is because, well, he's a puppy and we really can't get him to express himself in more detail)

    My dog shelia was totally an ESTJ. She HAD to have her way, and was very protective of her things. She definitely let it be known she was in charge. She couldn't sit still and was always into something, yet she was still very outgoing and playful!

    I think my cat was an ISFP. He was offbeat, and liked to hide in odd places. He definitely didn't like criticism. XD
