    Yes, I've made a deliberate effort the last few years to address this. People always used to comment.

    The issue is, I think, the complete lack of body or environmental awareness; I knew I was going somewhere, and I knew how to put one foot in front of the other, so I would shut off and turn inward, and my cruise control wouldn't pay much attention to grace or poise; it would simply put one foot in front of the other as efficiently as it could to get me from point A to point B. People would tell me it was like I was trying to get away from someone.

    Learning to chill, though. Calling up some forgotten muscle memory from years of childhood dancing lessons and tae kwon do. Trying to bring in some grace.

    lol, I just discovered that ENFPs don't despair :grin:, I'll blame my mistake on my noobness.
    anyways, What would a typical NT wear?

    People said the same about me, learning to play footy and tae kwon do probably fixed it for me. It took me ages to get anywhere when it came to footy...

    I tend to wear white t-shirts and jeans, much to the gf's dismay. I've got a few graphic tees I like though. But basically, jeans. And when the weather gets warm, shorts and flip flops or sneakers.

    Rule #1:
    Never assume anything.

    If you call me an ENTJ, one might "assume" my function order,
    and draw an incorrect conclusion.

    Take 50 questions.
    Person#1 answers: 49% S and 51% N
    Person #2 answers: 0% S and 100% N.
    Both were given a result of ENTJ.

    Utter bullshit.
    Those people are not alike, yet placed in the same group.
    Without a doubt, those two people would have very different function orders.
    This is why I do not wish to be labeled.

    Well, if you've ever seen someone walk full-tilt into a telephone pole because they were 'lost in thought'...

    I've actually walked head first into a very large pole (don't think it was a telephone pole, but it might've been) and hit it with enough force to have a mark on my forehead that lasted several days. The only thing I recall about the pole itself is that it was bright red and very large.

    I walked into a stop sign pole, because whenever I strolled somewhere I tended to walk on the curb. I actually heard the metallic Ding! in my head when it happened.

    I walked straight into the back of a parked car once. I was walking fast, too, so I fell down. I felt like an ass.

    Great post!
    I am also thinking how labeling is wrong. MBTI is great for limited use, but labeling can mess things up.
    For example, I don't believe there is "any" difference between ENTP and ENFP, because most of them fit in your category 49:51, and you can be goofy ENFP but as you get old you are pressed to develop/use T... I am ENFP most of times, but I definately have some repressed INTP inside that is huge part of me, and ENTP.

    I'll label myself eNfP, that is farest I am willing to go with labeling.

    Chloee-
    I've met some incredibly brain-dead T's, and yet met some incredibly gifted INFPs.
    But alas, we don't really know their true function order now do we?
    Of course not.

    I don't like playing games that are already rigged a certain way.
    No theory should tell a person what their "pre-packaged" function order is.
    A function order test should be designed with zero restrictions to allow for any and all possibilities.

    I'm not interested in blocking out the truth about people.
    I'm interested in finding it.
