    Monster,

    You already know my answer: No.
    My problem with some of these posts is,
    people are using different criteria to come to their conclusion.
    You can't do that and have a reliable poll.

    The criteria should be function order.
    It's what defines the MBTI types to begin with.

    Too many people are bringing up percentages.
    That's irrelevant and misleading.
    My function order is far from a typical ENTJ.
    But if someone looked at my Dom Te-Ni, yep, they'd call me ENTJ.
    Problem is, my Te, Ni and Si are easily equal, then comes Ne and the others.
    Oh hell, let's just say I have pretty good development of almost all my functions.
    And that better be true, because I'm not young.

    MBTI is utter bullshit.
    You already know I think so.

    MBTI would say that's impossible.

    But then I think MBTI is utter bullshit.
    You already know that.
    How often have you said it?

    Nah. It's a bloody mess, but it's the least bloody-mess-producing fit available.

    I just pointed out it's not useful to go to a MBTI forum and write "MBTI is bullshit" several times.

    I considered that. Not sure the best way to approach the situation.

    My plan:
    1) Look at each function strength (other surveys) vs type listed and identify correlation/lack of correlation with standard function order
    2) Identify strength of functions for a given type ave over all members who claim that type-ie how much %Fi does a typical enfp use sort of thing relative to Ne
    3) Look at each individual function, breakdown into the attributes of each function, and see if trends are present that correlate to different function orders-ie does an Fi dom use F1 or F7 more sort of thing. Are there patterns present, especially in the way functions are used as aux or terts as those seem to develop more unevenly.
    4) Another interesting thing would be age and development of the nondom functions.
    5) This was more focused on just looking for folks who feel like true outliers, granted, flawed study but would identify at least proportions of folks who dont "feel" a tight fit. At numbers of close to 50 NT/NF respondents it looks like upwards of 20-40% don't fit cleanly into a specific type and 20% cross over between catagories, but need to go check numbers. The more the better so please keep posting.

    I am not totally anti MBTI-perhaps the standard dogma works-flawed but okay for 60% of folks maybe?? However to have a complete story it is good to appreciate the leftovers in more depth.

    All of course likely statistically insignificant but keeps Ne busy eh?

    Frankly, I don't really care.

    I haven't had a professional function test, but I can tell you from my own observations what my most dominant are.

    Ni is definitely my preferred and most developed function. Te comes in for a close second though. Fi is fairly strong as well.

    I'm no expert, so I won't presume to know more than I actually do. However, it's pretty obvious to anyone that observes my behavior that these functions are dominant in how I interact with the world around me.

    So, to answer the OP, I fit my mbti profile of INTJ about as cleanly as one could realistically expect out of the myriad of variances that is the human race.

    I also use Fi, and I mimick Fe.

    I think I developped Fi late teens and early twenties, dealing with a pretty heavy aspect in life.

    I also don't quite view myself as a standard INTP. But I'm sure I am one.

    I think I fit into the general archetype of the INTP, but im not the stereotype, and I dont think anyone alive does fit the description of any type completely. Im definitly hardcore Ne and Ti, and Im definitly an Introvert.
