    No.

    2. Do you find America's Funniest Home Videos funny? (Apologies to non-Americans for this question.)

    No. I hate it.

    3. Which is worse: Being seen as undignified or uncaring?

    The former.

    4. Do you reconcile your bank statements to the penny? How often do you find yourself checking the balance of your available cash (e.g. checking accounts)?

    I'm somewhat tight with money but I don't obsessively check my balance.

    5. Do you have a picture or idea of where you see yourself in 10 years? Yes or no..

    Vaguely yes.
    6. Do you like to keep your food separated? (My SJ mother cannot stand to have her food touching; not having the corn mixing in with the mashed potatoes.)
    No. That's OCD behavior. Not SJ. N's and their stereotypes.
    7. Where do you see yourself in 10 years?
    Out of school.

    8. Did it bother you that question seven was not asked after question five?
    Yes.

    9. Do you feel that you are a well-rounded individual?
    No.

    10. I've read that SJ's can be conservative with money. Is there anything you don't mind spending a lot on? Hobby/sport/living quarters/vehicles/clothing or the like?
    I don't mind spending a lot on beer, my girlfriend, or my hobby.

    11. Do you allow yourself to be lazy? Do you chide yourself during or afterwards?
    Yes, I do. I chide myself during and afterwards.

    12. Would you rather take a semester of college-level English or college-level geometry?
    English. I'm very good at languages and don't do well with math, although geometry is my favorite type of math.

    13. Does overuse of emoticons/smilies in emails or forum replies irritate you? You know, where there's one at the end of every sentence?
    Yes.

    14. Do you think you could keep your attraction to a potential romantic partner hidden? (INFP's (well, I did when I was single) can stumble all over ourselves around a crush.)

    I have.

    True.


    “Cleanliness is next to Godliness.”

    False.

    “I have to write things down (class notes, grocery list) in order to remember them.”

    True for class notes, false for grocery lists.

    Ok, here we go:

    1. If you go through a drive-through do you check your order before you leave the window?
    Well, on the extremely rare occasions I do a drive thru, yes I check it as it is handed to me.

    2. Do you find America's Funniest Home Videos funny? (Apologies to non-Americans for this question.)
    I guess. Not an enthusiast but if I see a bit of it it can be fun.

    3. Which is worse: Being seen as undignified or uncaring?
    Uncaring

    4. Do you reconcile your bank statements to the penny? How often do you find yourself checking the balance of your available cash (e.g. checking accounts)?
    Not to the penny. However, I do check about every other day.

    5. Do you have a picture or idea of where you see yourself in 10 years? Yes or no.
    Yup.

    6. Do you like to keep your food separated? (My SJ mother cannot stand to have her food touching; not having the corn mixing in with the mashed potatoes.)
    No, I am not very picky that way at all. It would be hard going through life worrying about something so small!

    7. Where do you see yourself in 10 years?

    That would take a long time to answer, but yes marriage and kids are in there.

    8. Did it bother you that question seven was not asked after question five?
    Nope.

    9. Do you feel that you are a well-rounded individual?
    Yes, except I wish I didn't have to analyze everything SOO much!

    10. I've read that SJ's can be conservative with money. Is there anything you don't mind spending a lot on? Hobby/sport/living quarters/vehicles/clothing or the like?
    Yes, horses, food, and books, although I try to get the best deals possible on all those.

    11. Do you allow yourself to be lazy? Do you chide yourself during or afterwards?
    Sometimes I let myself be lazy. If I feel I really need to relax and I'm not terribly behind then I don't feel guilty. However, I'm starting to feel guilty already for being on here when there are other things I could and should be doing

    12. Would you rather take a semester of college-level English or college-level geometry?
    English, for sure! I cannot stand geometry proofs!

    13. Does overuse of emoticons/smilies in emails or forum replies irritate you? You know, where there's one at the end of every sentence?
    Yes, of course!!!!!! They are SO irritating!

    14. Do you think you could keep your attraction to a potential romantic partner hidden? (INFP's (well, I did when I was single) can stumble all over ourselves around a crush.)
    I can do it pretty well but haven't tried to lately.

    True/False:
    “If everyone would just do it my way, then things would run a lot smoother around here.” Yes!
    “Cleanliness is next to Godliness.” Sort of.
    “I have to write things down (class notes, grocery list) in order to remember them.” I might not have to, but it sure is easier!
    “There's nothing wrong with spontaneity as long as I can schedule for it.” Er, yes. I resemble that remark.

    1. If you go through a drive-through do you check your order before you leave the window?

    No, I take it on good faith that they didn't screw it up.


    2. Do you find America's Funniest Home Videos funny? (Apologies to non-Americans for this question.)

    I did as a kid. Nowadays, I just find it rather forced most of the time. Maybe it's just the camera cuts to audience specific members laughing that bugs me.


    3. Which is worse: Being seen as undignified or uncaring?

    I'd say undignified. One can come across as uncaring, but their actions can say otherwise. I don't know if the same could be said for dignity.


    4. Do you reconcile your bank statements to the penny? How often do you find yourself checking the balance of your available cash (e.g. checking accounts)?

    No. I only check my accounts when bill payment time nears.


    5. Do you have a picture or idea of where you see yourself in 10 years? Yes or no.

    I have a rough idea as to where I want to be, but I expect it to change over those ten years, as life in general usually doesn't go as planned.


    6. Do you like to keep your food separated? (My SJ mother cannot stand to have her food touching; not having the corn mixing in with the mashed potatoes.)

    I don't usually care. Sometimes there's a benefit to having some salad dressing in my mashed potatoes!


    7. Where do you see yourself in 10 years?

    I intend to either be in a leadership position at an existing company or running my own.


    8. Did it bother you that question seven was not asked after question five?

    It didn't bother me, but it would have flowed better I suppose.


    9. Do you feel that you are a well-rounded individual?

    Overall, yes...but perhaps I need to get more in touch with my emotions.


    10. I've read that SJ's can be conservative with money. Is there anything you don't mind spending a lot on? Hobby/sport/living quarters/vehicles/clothing or the like?

    Heh...if I was conservative with my money, I'd have a pretty nice car by now as opposed to student debt. I have a tendency to collect things, which resulted in a large number of purchases for a particular item, like games, books, records, audio gear, etc.


    11. Do you allow yourself to be lazy? Do you chide yourself during or afterwards?

    Yes and I'm not proud of those moments. I think I'm being lazy right now as a matter of fact. Stop being lazy, me!


    12. Would you rather take a semester of college-level English or college-level geometry?

    English, as it usually involves some interesting discussions and the required reading content can be more interesting than geometry.


    13. Does overuse of emoticons/smilies in emails or forum replies irritate you? You know, where there's one at the end of every sentence?

    Yes, because the excess usage is usually attached to an air of pretension in the text.


    14. Do you think you could keep your attraction to a potential romantic partner hidden? (INFP's (well, I did when I was single) can stumble all over ourselves around a crush.)

    Yes and that is a problem when I don't want to keep it hidden.


    True/False:
    “If everyone would just do it my way, then things would run a lot smoother around here.”

    False. I'm not some all knowing ruler. I'm pretty sure some of my ideas would leave us worse off.

    “Cleanliness is next to Godliness.”

    True. Then again, I'm currently sitting in my room of "organized chaos" in which it's technically a mess, but I know where everything is.

    “I have to write things down (class notes, grocery list) in order to remember them.”

    True. For things that I don't categorize as reaaaally important.

    “There's nothing wrong with spontaneity as long as I can schedule for it.”

    True. Spotaneity can be great fun if you didn't have anything "better" in mind.

    Thanks, although I'm pretty certain she isn't interested in me. What I'm going to try to do tomorrow is instead find some closure for myself. Not to get off topic but basically what I'm going to do is let her know that while I am definitely interested in her, that I understand she isn't looking for anything serious and instead I want to try and be a really good friend to her.

    She may yet surprise me but I've never gotten any indication from her that she was interested so I'm not at all banking on it.

For example, he'll occasionally clear a Saturday afternoon and let me know that I get to call the shots for the day. (Usually it's a two-hour road trip to some random place that he never would have picked himself.) He can be spontaneous as long as he knows when it will begin and end.
    Ah ok, that makes sense then. In that case, yeah, I could do that. So long as I know to expect something totally random within a time period, I could definitely handle that.

    ...

    1. If you go through a drive-through do you check your order before you leave the window?
    They usually repeat the order back to me, so I have no real need to.
    2. Do you find America's Funniest Home Videos funny?
    Absolutely
    3. Which is worse: Being seen as undignified or uncaring?
    Undignified, definitely. I'm okay with some people thinking that I'm a cold heartless bitch, as long as they respect me, and as long as I have friends/a good support system.
    4. Do you reconcile your bank statements to the penny? How often do you find yourself checking the balance of your available cash (e.g. checking accounts)?
    Not to the penny. Maybe to the five or ten dollars, though. I check my balance whenever I go to an ATM, and whenever I get my statement online.
    5. Do you have a picture or idea of where you see yourself in 10 years?
    Not even remotely - but then again, I'm in college, so I'm in a strange little transitional period right now.
    6. Do you like to keep your food separated? (My SJ mother cannot stand to have her food touching; not having the corn mixing in with the mashed potatoes.)
    Depends on how good they taste together, or if I feel like they were meant to be eaten together. I would probably also hate to have corn mixed in with mashed potatoes... but I might mix the chicken with the mashed potatoes, or the green beans with the macaroni. It depends.
    7. Where do you see yourself in 10 years?
    I don't know!
    8. Did it bother you that question seven was not asked after question five?
    What bothers me is not that one didn't follow the other directly - what bothers me is that they're essentially the same question asked twice.
    9. Do you feel that you are a well-rounded individual?
    Yeah, I think so. I have loads of interests.
    10. I've read that SJ's can be conservative with money. Is there anything you don't mind spending a lot on? Hobby/sport/living quarters/vehicles/clothing or the like?
    I always feel bad after splurging, but what I splurge the most on is 1. CDs and 2. fashionable clothes.
    11. Do you allow yourself to be lazy? Do you chide yourself during or afterwards?
    There are always days when I spend too much time on the internet or doing something random because I'm avoiding doing a job that I don't want to do, that's due to be finished in a couple of days but that I still would really want to finish early. And at the end of those days, there's usually a moment where I go "God DAMN it you were stupid! The hell were you thinking?? Tomorrow, you'd better work like a dog to compensate for today's worthlessness!!!"
    12. Would you rather take a semester of college-level English or college-level geometry?
    Neither, really. I guess, since geometry would be easy for me considering the fact that I've taken college-level Calculus, I'd rather take English because it'd be more of a challenge. But if I had no experience with either one, I'd make the decision based on the reading list for the English class. If it was all stuff I'd read before, or that I don't give a crap about, I'd take Geometry.
    13. Does overuse of emoticons/smilies in emails or forum replies irritate you? You know, where there's one at the end of every sentence?
    Not really. If it's accompanied by bad spelling, it does. But not when it's used in a cute way that gives you a picture of the emotions that really accompany what's being said.
    14. Do you think you could keep your attraction to a potential romantic partner hidden? (INFP's (well, I did when I was single) can stumble all over ourselves around a crush.)
    I think I could, if I had to. But people who know me well would probably be able to see through it.
    True/False:
    “If everyone would just do it my way, then things would run a lot smoother around here.”
    Lol, yeah, kinda. If I have a very definite "way" that has been proven to work, then yes.
    “Cleanliness is next to Godliness.”
    False. To be picky, nothing we mortals can do is "next to godliness". But cleanliness is really really important!!
    “I have to write things down (class notes, grocery list) in order to remember them.”
    Absolutely. True all the way. I couldn't function without my to-do lists and my planner.
    “There's nothing wrong with spontaneity as long as I can schedule for it.”
    ...true. Completely and utterly true.

    1. If you go through a drive-through do you check your order before you leave the window?

    I check it as I am driving away. I hate slow drive-throughs and don't want to hold the line up. Montgomery, Alabama fails at the concept (except for Chick-Fil-A, for anyone ever passing through).

    2. Do you find America's Funniest Home Videos funny? (Apologies to non-Americans for this question.)

    I have not watched it in a long time, but I liked it as a kid, when Bob Saget hosted.

    3. Which is worse: Being seen as undignified or uncaring?

    Uncaring

    4. Do you reconcile your bank statements to the penny? How often do you find yourself checking the balance of your available cash (e.g. checking accounts)?

    Yes. I check my balance daily.

    5. Do you have a picture or idea of where you see yourself in 10 years? Yes or no.

    Yes.

    6. Do you like to keep your food separated? (My SJ mother cannot stand to have her food touching; not having the corn mixing in with the mashed potatoes.)

    Yes, and I eat each dish one at a time (eat the corn, go to the mashed potatoes, then greens, etc.).

    7. Where do you see yourself in 10 years?

    Same place I am now, except hopefully in a different house. Doing the same thing though.

    8. Did it bother you that question seven was not asked after question five?

    Nah.

    9. Do you feel that you are a well-rounded individual?

    Yes.

    10. I've read that SJ's can be conservative with money. Is there anything you don't mind spending a lot on? Hobby/sport/living quarters/vehicles/clothing or the like?

    Sports and clothing.

    11. Do you allow yourself to be lazy? Do you chide yourself during or afterwards?

    I do sometimes, but I feel really guilty during and afterwards!

    12. Would you rather take a semester of college-level English or college-level geometry?

    English for sure.

    13. Does overuse of emoticons/smilies in emails or forum replies irritate you? You know, where there's one at the end of every sentence?

    No.

    14. Do you think you could keep your attraction to a potential romantic partner hidden? (INFP's (well, I did when I was single) can stumble all over ourselves around a crush.)

    Not for too long.

    True/False:
    “If everyone would just do it my way, then things would run a lot smoother around here.”


    False.

    “Cleanliness is next to Godliness.”

    False.

    “I have to write things down (class notes, grocery list) in order to remember them.”

    True.

    “There's nothing wrong with spontaneity as long as I can schedule for it.”

    I would like to say false, but it's true for me.

    INTP Answers for contrast/comparison

    1. If you go through a drive-through do you check your order before you leave the window?
    Never... and if they mess up my order, I'll just eat what they gave me and move on.

    2. Do you find America's Funniest Home Videos funny? (Apologies to non-Americans for this question.)
    I'm not sure if I've ever laughed at a clip.

    3. Which is worse: Being seen as undignified or uncaring?
    Uncaring.

    4. Do you reconcile your bank statements to the penny? How often do you find yourself checking the balance of your available cash (e.g. checking accounts)?
    Bwahahaha, no. I never open my bank statements, and I check my balance once every few weeks.

    5. Do you have a picture or idea of where you see yourself in 10 years? Yes or no.
    No.

    6. Do you like to keep your food separated? (My SJ mother cannot stand to have her food touching; not having the corn mixing in with the mashed potatoes.)
    I like it mixed together.

    7. Where do you see yourself in 10 years?
    I'm not sure.

    8. Did it bother you that question seven was not asked after question five?
    No.

    9. Do you feel that you are a well-rounded individual?
    Yes, very much so.

    10. I've read that SJ's can be conservative with money. Is there anything you don't mind spending a lot on? Hobby/sport/living quarters/vehicles/clothing or the like?
    I don't really like spending a lot of money on anything, except maybe education/books.

    11. Do you allow yourself to be lazy? Do you chide yourself during or afterwards?
    I'm pretty lazy.

    12. Would you rather take a semester of college-level English or college-level geometry?
    English. Most geometry is so basic to me now that I would die of boredom; I haven't, however, taken all college courses that might fall into the "English" classification.

    13. Does overuse of emoticons/smilies in emails or forum replies irritate you? You know, where there's one at the end of every sentence?
    Never. I'm rarely irritated with people on the internet.

    14. Do you think you could keep your attraction to a potential romantic partner hidden? (INFP's (well, I did when I was single) can stumble all over ourselves around a crush.)
    Yes.

    “If everyone would just do it my way, then things would run a lot smoother around here.”
    False

    Wow, I'm pretty sure I didn't see anything in the OP that mentioned comparing SJ answers to INTP answers.

    7. Where do you see yourself in 10 years?

    Living my life how I want too and not to by society's standards.
    Doesn't your answer to number 7 imply that your answer to number 5 should be yes? I suppose you could have not had that idea until you read question 7, but I doubt it.

    Also, you used too when you should have used to.

    Edit: As a tested (I presume) ISFJ and a 9w1, one would think that you'd prefer harmony, kindness, and peace. Judging from your above posts, that seems unlikely. Perhaps you messed up on your answers to those test questions as well, which would explain your "off" results.
