Though I can probably do them longer than other people can. Heck, I like riding extreme roller-coasters (or would like to ride some when i get the chance) where some wouldn't even touch.
    Yes, this sounds like my INFJ. You'd never mistake him for an ESTP, but his hobbies come off as "wannabe SP".
    We went to Magic Mountain & he was sooo excited by every roller coaster, especially as each was more extreme than the next. After about two, they all felt the same to me and I was bored... He had this touch of "SP going after physical experiences" attitude, but his over all demeanor was still INFJ. This is very much a stress relief for him also. I do "S stuff" for stress relief also, but for me it's familiar comforts, old favorites, relaxing experiences (very Si I suppose).


    What is funny is that INTPs seems to be one of the easiest people to come in contact with me. I don't know why, when I took this test, I was in a room filled with INTPs... and one INTJ. That one INTJ told me,
    I encounter an inordinate amount of them also. I'm tired of dating them though. I've moved onto INFJs, I guess. I just can't do another INFP though; it feels incestuous.

    When men pretend to be what they *think* an ESTP is (not what an ESTP necessarily really is) they usually just come across as loser douchebags.

    I usually am not sexually attracted to NF men anyway, but I'm not claiming that *only* NF men engage in this behavior. I guess any insecure introvert could, including an INTJ or INTP.

    ISFJs, on the other hand, might be more inclined to mimic xSTJs, in my experience.
    I'm sure this anonymous person regards your opinion with high esteem. There's a female member in this forum who doesn't have a clue what her personality type is and contradicts herself constantly in debates, usually resorting to personal attacks instead of admitting when she's wrong. I think she takes her clothes off for random strangers online. I wish she would critique people more about respectable behavior. She's so classy!

    This is true for me as well. I had such an "SP experience" last year when I was feeling in the pits but afterwards my mood was greatly elevated. However, I find that too much of such experiences have negative effects as well.

    Actually he used to talk to me a lot and get on my nerves for various reasons.

    It's not you. But your opinion of me really matters a whole lot. Thanks for acting out for no reason.

    I'm not sure how talking about what turns me off sexually as a woman concerns "class" or you.

    Have a day.

    I think I'm pretty split between NF/SP sides myself. If it's NFJ, so be it. I have a hard time believing more and more that I'm not INFP, for the simple fact that I've taken some of this unhealthy stuff discussed here into extreme areas. Things that don't seem to be an NFP's forte. I used to run with street gangs, for one. I have more friends who were violently killed than it seems to be normal.. especially for my age (not that that's cool.. just saying what kind of world I've dabbled with). You live, you learn. Fortunately for me, I was always learning even back then.. I was more cautious than them. I never quite jumped headlong into everything.. I just hung around it.

    You've always seemed more ISxP to me, but I could be wrong.

    The 1st mistake you made is to beleive that INFJs are actually gentleman. In the realm of Ni and Ti there is a lot of cold calculate precision, Fe doesnt always come across as caring and warmth, sometimes it comes across as pushy and aggressive and in control. Add Se to the mix and its pretty easy to see how this can come about.

    I find myself going in and out of ESTP periods, INFJ when I want to build, ESTP when I want to destroy. INFJ when I feel somewhat comfortable and I feel as though I have things to lose and I play cautious, ESTP when I feel left out and I have nothing to lose and I need to win and conquer in order to feel safe again. I figure most INFJ males bounce back and forth between these modes as they are both a part of the same mind.

    I tend to act more assholeish and ESTPish and malewhoreish when I am single, I hurt more people, I take more risks and I feel more invulnerable. When I am with someone I care about I feel as though I have to reign in all my excess so I can keep things flowing, and harmonized. 2 sides of the same coin IMO.

    I must be the exception to that rule.

    There seems to be some consensus on that one... at multiple sites. Heh

    Maybe I am. Or maybe an INFJ doing a decent job at faking it. :marionette:

    That's a poor excuse to use that emoticon, but it's probably useless otherwise.

ESTPs are only the most apparent because they often stand out the highest most in the social realm and INFJs would of course, know this. This is not to say they don't have their limitations that pull them back but perhaps best for another conversation.
    Judging by results received with their own descriptions of how their mind works, it mostly tends to be different versions of the same thing. INFPs would not often do this as they strive far more upon 'individuality' than reflective adherence.
    I think INFJs also seek out ESTP type behaviors because they secretly admire the freedom it affords, some of the "coolest" people IMO appear to be ESTP types with nothing to lose and who go out with no plans, no agendas, just sheer force of will and dominate as they see fit, Tyler Durden-esque... to an INFJ who feels weak and out of control that type of power is very seductive. Especially for a dude who is a constant overthinker, worried about the future, how he will affect those around him, who wants and wants and wants but holds back in order to be sure until its too late, ESTPs go out and TAKE... INFJ males kind of envy that in a way.
