    I think when you say guy/male, guy gets a little redundant, you know? Btw nice thread idea
    -----------------

    A man builds. A parasite asks 'Where is my share?'
    A man creates. A parasite says, 'What will the neighbors think?'
    A man invents. A parasite says, 'Watch out, or you might tread on the toes of God... '

    Well...I've self-identified as ESTP for a long time now, but dating my INTP and seeing how insanely similar we are has made me reevaluate my stance on this. I've always thought of myself as an atypical ESTP since, although I possess the same irreverently goofy temperament as an ESTP, I don't really behave like them when I go through the motions of my normal life. I've come to a point, though, where I'm realizing you can only say "I'm exactly like this except for all these reasons that don't fit me!" for so long before you have to admit that the shoe's not fitting. :P

    Also, when I discovered that my boy has studied MBTI, we had a conversation and he told me that my thought process isn't very sensory and that I go about things more in the way an NT would.

    So in short, my answer is uh...ExTP? :P Not sure how to answer your poll without throwing it.
    Never wrestle with a pig. You will get dirty and the pig will enjoy it.

    Sorry, I didn't know if with the word "guy" people would understand that I was mentioning males particularly.

    N-S differenciation can be a little complicated.


    Anyway, there's seems to be a tie with INFJ, INFP, ENFP and ENTP types for the moment.

    I think single male INTPs are more common. For instance, all two of them (including myself) that I know personally.

    Yeah, most of us prefer to be alone.

    Yes if you want, as an INTP, I know we can't keep a relationship for long. We're a special kind.

    Lol Male INTP. I wouldn't bother. Because I'm an INTP myself... this just doesn't seem like a good idea. I can just imagine the types of conversations we'd have. Not to mention lack of social life.

    We should have a thread about types that shouldn't date a male INTP. That would be more interesting.

    I've been with my boyfriend for 3 years now. How long you can keep a relationship for has nothing to do with one's MBTI type. It depends on the person and how much he/she is willing to put into the relationship.

    What are your sources? Honestly I can't take this opinion seriously unless I see some kind of bibliography or some cold hard facts. I do agree that it depends on the prison to some degree, but type has been shown time and time again to be a factor in whatever it is you're talking about.
