    Default What does a balance between J and P mean exactly?

    That's my question. I take the Myers Briggs test quite a bit and always seem to recieve a J, but it's only very slightly so. What would this mean exactly?

    It probably means that you answered "Yes" to "Is your desk very organized?" and "No" to "Do you tend to plan ahead?"

    Precisely. Though given he's NT I would guess it's the other way around -- NTJs are Ni/Te, a type essentially defined by treating life as if it were a game of chess. If he were an NF instead I could see being organized but unplanned (ENFP, Ne Te loop) being the case.

    It was the other way around. Good guess. Though I meant what qualities would a person have with this part of the function being balanced.

    I felt a sarcasm towards the fact that it really doesn't matter either way, or tests like the one in which I took are useless, but that's just me.

    There's a significant disconnect between the way MBTI tests usually work and the way MBTI types actually work that makes them close to useless. This is because Kiersey stuck his nose in, created his own typology system using the same terms and definitions, and now everyone uses a bizarre syncretic system that isn't worth shit.

    Exactly. I'm in the efforts of fleshing out what is useful and what is not right now. It's difficult to figure out what each description is describing, I mean whether they're describing the actual thinking processes or just random 'being human' qualities. I'm starting to enjoy socionics more.
