    Default An ES living in an IN world...

    My roommates/friends and I went a little MBTI crazy lately. And I have come to the discover that all, pretty much literally ALL of my closest friends over the course of my life have been INs, a significant number of them also being Ps. Technically I am an ExFJ, but most people that know me find that I lean more on the S side. But, moving on... I find it fascinating that I am so drawn to INs! Can any others relate?

    I am an IN and I think I repulse ES types in different ways. I think a work colleague I get on good with is an ESFP (she could also be an ISFP) but if she is an ES she is the sole exception. There certainly aren't any others.

    I can relate for sure. Being able to rely on someone for their insight is valuable to me.

    No. Unfortunately I can't relate. But only because no group is a representation of my world.

    I find myself out of sorts regardless of the environment. But I suppose that is something that afflicts most humans to some degree.

    Back when I played soccer in high school, I lived in SP/STJ world, and it worked for a while, but then I just became an alien freakazoid and a solitary madman!

    Hmm, you speak as if it was an evolution aka once normal and now weird but I would think an INTJ would be alien freakazoid from day one. Perhaps your ISTP typing was correct? Or perhaps not.

    You could try returning to soccer and see if you can find symbolism or abstract concepts in kicking a ball around. I think its a perfect metaphor for fatalism - if you finally manage to reach the goal enough times you win...only to find it was a temporary victory and the struggle begins anew. Or treat it like a metaphor for the nuclear fission process.

    That's the Ti-Ni loop theory.

    It would be way too much work to play again - all the funny kids from that game are out of it now or in college playing, and rec-adult league would suck - I haven't played for real for 2 years now, and seriously for real for 4 years now!

    My best friend is ESFJ, my boyfriend is an ENFJ, my other two significant relationships were with an ESTJ and and ESFP. I tend to gravitate towards people different in type from me.
