    Default Adapting to Situations

    I noticed something recently about myself, I'm incredibly adaptable. For example, I moved recently and didn't miss a beat. I packed up, moved, and unpacked in one day, hardly changed anything, beside a dramatic change in scenery and set-up.

    It happens on a day-to-day basis too. If a friend goes through a dramatic change of any sort (hair cut, change in attitude, plastic surgery) I accept it and move on in minutes.

    Is this normal among NTs? I did test INTP once or twice a few months ago, so it might have to do with the P over J. It's just from what I've read, NTs tend to be less adept at this than the other types, but I could be wrong.
    I don't think I know everything, just more than you do.

    I'm incredibly adaptable, too, but my INTP brother sucks at change. *shrug*

    I suppose I'm pretty adaptable. I'd go into details, but my I is making me too uncomfortable to discuss it. = \

    I am extremely adaptable. Within 2 hours of any new event, it feels to me like it's always been that way.

    Not an NT, but I wonder if adaptability correlates with weak Si.

    Although maybe being T in itself helps because there's less chance of emotional attachment to the previous situation?

    I moved out of home at 17 to live with a friend, then a different friend, then with an Aunt, then at a shelter, then went to a live-there-vocational school, then with my gf's mom, then got my own apartment and jobs at 18, and none of it phased me. I learned how to fit in anywhere i was, though I was standoffish at first, i soon soaked into the enviroment, and i was never homesick.

    Yup, I would think so. (if you like the function theory)
