    All of these describe me well. I've been following a Taoist way of life ever since I discovered the Barefoot Doctor's excellent books.

    ITs kinda cool having a deeper meaning behind the Yin Yang symbol than 'cuz its cool' ( At least circa Hippie Generation )

    That's kinda why I never did any writing assignments in high school English, other than the ones where we could pick the topic ourselves. For all the ones that were assigned, I was like....how am I supposed to write five pages about something I can answer in four sentences? All the topics were so stupid and pointless. Even though English was one of my strongest subjects (my English score on the ACT was my highest one as well), that alone nearly made me fail on several occasions.

    I used to be like that. Once I got started writing, though, it just flowed very quickly. Ni is a lifesaver in English classes. Its just tough to stay on track sometimes.

    Maybe you're an INfJ? Ti is a function that's great at saying things in the clearest, shortest way possible. Maybe INtP?, not like it matters too much

    Musta missed that one when I was browsing that site - It does look very accurate, focusing less on details, more on concepts of the type. It also is really good for getting a flavor of the type, the others are just dry and fact-based.

    Really? I didn't know that. That's probably why INFJs often described as "fragmentary and aphoristic" thinkers. Well Ni explains the former part, and Ti the latter.

    Hmm. Not a VW Bus. Too small. No kitchen. No bathroom. No bed. A really big RV? Perhaps.

    *Looks up aphoristic, likes new words*

    Mhm that sounds right. I think the fragmentary mindset is from a train of thought that sometimes just suddenly breaks off, say from a distraction or mis-path of thought, and you either have to hold the previous train or lose it altogether. At least for me anyway.

    I'm not completely sure of that aspect of Ti either, but it makes sense. INTPs use Ne to find the core of an idea through its aspects and then can define the idea through the core of it. They do it naturally with primary Ti, we use Tertiary Ti so it works slower and less 'sharp.'

    Creative thinking. Find an xNTJ and a few ISTP mechanics and you'll figure out a way to make it work.

    Maybe not VW bus, but something that can fit a computer and a TV (Who needs a bathroom? Get a bucket and dump it out somewhere! )

    Nah, I'm definitely INFJ. It's just that, rather than having a highly developed F and underdeveloped T, both are pretty much equally highly developed (from what I've heard from others and noticed myself), though I have a definite F preference. I've had some difficulty figuring that out since some of the tests I've taken show me at a 55/45 F/T percentage, or even closer than that. I thought of it kind of like being a quantitative measurement, and that both sides would add up to be greater than 100%, just as a way of thinking of how developed both sides are, rather than how much of a preference you have, since some other tests showed me at 85-90% for F, and I figured there had to be a reason for such an inconsistency of results.

    Agreed. I've read that before, and relate to it quite well.
