    Unfortunately I'm still very much INTP while working, but with fleeting moments of INTJness. That's where I get 97% of my work done.

    I'm a little bit more Te heavy at work- but Te is comfortable for me, anyway.
    Luckily my job fits my personality for the most part, so I don't have to act very different from how I am. There are moments that I have to be a little more F than I'd like to be since i'm working closely with sick and dying people and i'm prone to walk in, do the tasks, and leave- but I need to make myself more soft and sensitive than I would naturally be.

    When I'm at work, I focus on the task and generally "switch off" to everything else around me, including people.

    Whilst my co-workers hang around and chat for the last ten minutes, my eyes are peeled on the clock.

    I'm more distant at work, I think.
    Um, yeah.

    Don't all the SJs go home after work and build cabinets in the garage with their power tools.....replace some light bulbs in the kitchen........oil the hinges on the squeaky door.

    I'm in customer service, so at work I'm much more eNFP than iNFP. I actually like my job right now, I'm in a grocery store in a small town, so it's fairly easy to get along with my co-workers and customers. I remember when I lived in a bigger city I probably acted more like an ESTJ at work - being an INFP in a horrendously populated and self-absorbed place like Vegas made me miserable. At home I'm much more laid back, more introverted, and more distinctly NF. My work life has never had much to do with "who I really am" except for maybe sometimes when I was dancer. However, I find that in some college classes, or while working on papers, I feel like I'm much more in my natural element.

    I just become more of a stereotypical ESTJ. Everywhere except work, I tend to be cheery and joking. At work, I'm all business.

    Okay, sorry but since no one has chose to point this out, I guess I will. The Te cognitive function is J.....

    I am required to do more smiling and disciplining at work when teaching. I have to be more extroverted and assertive than is natural to me. I'm not 100% sure which functions that relates to, but probably Fe when dealing with children. When I was in school I needed much more Te.

    I become a bit more of an ESTJ at work. I suppose from a slight acting experience, I've learned how to act more assertive/aggressive. I'm not naturally inclined towards an E, but I know how to pretend I have it if I need to.
    If a deaf INFP falls in the forest and no one is around to hear it, does it make a sound?
