    Default Question for NFs...

    In accordance of the question asked to the SPs, I'd like to know this truth about NFs. Do you consider yourself a philosopher or do you have philosophical viewpoints like so many descriptions say you do?

    I don't generally think of myself as a "philosopher", but certainly many of my thoughts are philosophical in nature. I've been described as a philosopher/philosophical many times, as well. So, in short, yes, I'm philosophical but I don't like that word.

    I asked the NTs the same question. Hence, I put my response here.

    I enjoy discussing philosophical topics because I feel very comfortable in the world of ideas. I love to categorize ideas, find patterns and systems, and think in general . I would not call myself a philosopher, because it would be pretentious...I am just little old me!

    Uber, have you read any of my threads?

    Theory is one of my greatest values.

    Naturally, I'm just getting a perspective to see if it's really true.

    I would suspect that the only truly philosophical type would be the INTP, because of his/her primary goal is to apply logic to speculative thinking of the unknowns of the outer world. And perhaps the INFP, who would probably be labeled as more religious, since they are also into speculative thinking, but their primary objective is to integrate it with their personal values.

    An N dominant, however, would primarily be interested in the fanciful thinking, regardless if whether or not it's logical or valuable.

    I would say any INXX type is potentially a philosopher.

    But I will agree, that when it comes to true philosophy, in the sense of not becoming too emotionally invested in ideas, INXJs are limited because of their dominant intuition. I think INTJs tend to be dogmatics of reason and INFJs tend to be dogmatics of perception. In fact, every INFJ vs. INTJ debate eventually deteriorates into an argument of reason vs. perception.

    With me, I tend to be about bouncing cool ideas in the air without considering either their logic or practicality. Like, for example, a cool idea I had for a roller coaster design or a cool idea for a movie scene. I tend not to care whether it's logical or practical. I'm more interested in the actual creative aspect.
