    Well on the surface yes but perhaps not in particular. A student of history may have lots of weird knowledge picked up as part of understanding history itself. And if you want random unconnected pieces of information you go see an eclectic person which is usually an N.

    Go find yourself a copy of 'Introduction to Type' by a certain Isabel Briggs Myers. It's only like 40 odd pages but it's one of the most useful guides to comparison between types.

    Perhaps your best guide would be whether the 'target' does things by his own rules or accepts and uses other's rules in his own methodology. Having just read the two profiles briefly, that seems a good measure of the difference.
    Isn't it time for a colourful metaphor?

    Apparently nothing.
    I know one xNTP (besides myself) that I'd put up against any ESTJ in Trivial Pursuit.

    Thank you, X, I will keep my antennae peeled for clues.

    He's not too open to other people's ways.
    Sunday, we played a song I wrote and he kept insisting on playing it faster than I wanted it played... and I'M the one who WROTE the song! I think I know how fast I want it!
