    I think everyone has that 'split'. For one think, it's called shadow functions.

    But anyways, every MBTI type is basically a template for how everyone copes/survives/makes sense of the world. The NT temperament is hardly alone in having splits in their persona. We all have that raw edge that we hide / overcome / develop with what we're most comfortable using.

    My dragon slaying ego is my internet alter ego. I am completely different in person. A little strange maybe, but not dragon slaying.

    I'm going to be rude and ignore you. This forum makes me too paranoid.

    I think some people can be binary -- but yes, usually it's multiple facets, not just two. And not all of it's purposeful, the chameleon effect is in play. NTPs (and other P's) can be extremely flexy in changing to accommodate situations, and personal comfort / social anxiety / self-worth concepts play also into what someone is willing to reveal to what sphere.

    Shrug. I think I got the gist of the OP's message.

    I've always envisioned myself into become the most perfectly compassionate and understanding human being in the 'perfect relationship.'

    Lol...I am an ENTJ intellectually and when it comes to my goals but when
    it comes to social things and stuff I am often mistaken for ESTP or ESFJ.

    What do you think the synthesis of these two faces of the self would look like? Would it be them acting at the same time, or would it be a melding of both into one?

    Go looking around the NF forum. Don't read the enneagram books if you want paralells, because they say that the best type for anyone is a healthy person of any type. As amargith said: "INTPs are all just romantic softies". :steamed:, damnit, she's accurate! We exude a vibe to the world that makes us seem like little serial killers, but we just don't want to waste energy on useless conversations, and faking anger is effective at that. In private, we're much softer, and actually have emotions .

    I think I have the same split, but in reverse. The public is made private, and private is made public.
