The whole question was whether you are ENTP or ESTP.
The question was why [forgot their name] even questioned if I'm ESTP in the first place. Basically I was shooting down the foolish question of me being ESTP just because I like a booty call and joined in on some fun. Because like OMGz! if someone likes pussy with no strings attached they must be ESTP!!! Riiight.
I'm sure I'm not ESTP. I don't need to question myself about who I am or what type I am. I dont need an anonymous stranger (who btw, can't even come to a conclusion on their own type) trying to tell me what type I seem like to them over the internet. hence, youre rambling for nothing.
Hearing a song and dancing along with it feeling the beat. That's SP behavior.
I love to dance.
Hearing a song and listening to the lyrics, analyzing the purpose of the song, picking at the lyrics to see if they makes sense, mocking the lyrics, etc. that's NT behavior.
I usually never listen to lyrics and my istp husband does.
I relate to the latter.
EDIT: and here's another SP vs NT thing that I grew up with. My dad (ISTP) always encouraged my to get into a skilled trade (carpenter, plumber, roofer, etc) where I'd be working with my hands. I always hated that idea because I knew those jobs would never provide enough mental stimulation. I ended going to school and studying psychology.
It really seems to work out best, and is more efficient , if you remember that typology is just a way of understanding how people prefer to perceive and process data. It's too rough an ideology to attribute such specific behaviors to it, as 'people' around here have taught me.

We loved the machines for many of the same reasons as the SPs and SJs that surrounded us.
In my experience, extroverted NTs can sound *very* sensory. My ENTJ best friend comes off as an ESTJ frequently and even tests as one sometimes, but so many other ENTJs I know well. Speak to them for a minute, and you'll know they're N dominants. Consider that an extroverted NT might be more inclined to test the waters, try the fugu, take a dare, etc because they're experiencers. They want to see what happens when XYZ occurs, even if it seems perhaps inadvisable.
On the other hand, I've also known S-primaries to seem very N unless you examine them closely. I wouldn't take certain "traits", per se, such as pursuits and hobbies, to delineate one's entire image of a person until you can see how they apply themselves or how they were raised.
My 2 cents + Your 2 cents = 4 effing cents! yay!
Yeah, my istp has very good use of Ni, his tert function.
Oh, Yeah! But wait. What do I not like about NTs? It's that I invariably am walking along peacefully enjoying the beautiful world, trying to understand the meaning of life, when WHAM! I inadvertently walk right into their huge, sticky web and I scream and it gets all wrapped around my head and hair and I can't get it off no matter how much I flail, and I have no idea where the spider even went (probably off to the corner of his web amusedly watching), and I run away screaming and stumbling around while I am all the while wishing I had chosen another path.
