    There's a huge difference between getting close to 50% on a test and actually being near the border.

    ^ Damn straight.
    If you could be anything you want, I bet you'd be disappointed--am I right?

    More importantly, though, you have the J in common with them and that's much more important than T/F or even N/S. The most important letter, by far, is P/J. You're probably more similar to ESTJ than you are to INFP!

    New temperaments based on functional attitudes instead of arbitrary surface characteristics:

    EP Explorers (dominant Pe, secondary Ji, tertiary Je, inferior Pi)
    IP Observers (Ji, Pe, Pi, Je)
    EJ Leaders (Je, Pi, Pe, Ji)
    IJ Analysts (Pi, Je, Ji, Pe)
    Did you get those results, EP IP and such, from independent study of typology or is this actually practiced as a legit method? It doesn't matter which to me. Just curious and wanting to know more.

    Well it's technically not "legit" as in it's not really written down, it's an independent study.

    Also +1 to simulatedworld for thinking like me... again. Since I've been trying to describe EP IP IJ EJ etc as new temperaments for a while...

    I am around 50% on S and N, but I think its more of an Se/Ni than Se/Ne. I can tell when Ne comes into play, these are my retarded moments and I use them as that. They are just ideas that pop into my head and I use them for a laugh, sometimes they appear more than others, but I dont try to do anything with it other than let them out sometimes for a laugh. My use of Se-Ti-Ni outweighs my Ne in terms of functional use.

    edit: How do Ne types filter this data? I tend to focus on the funny and retarded sounding ideas so thats more what I conciously notice.

    The ISTJ profile fits me almost extremely well, but I suppose it's because I'm....extreme? On the mock test I took (in signature) I scored very, very high on I, J, and T. S/N however, I scored only 63 percent in favor of S.

    From self-observation, I've noticed I use a lot of Ne and from talking with BlackCat, I think that's what it is. I went through a little episode where I wasn't certain if I was N or S, but after a quick examination of Ni and Si, it became crystal clear. I'm an ISTJ -- no doubt.

    I used to try and think of type in terms of four letters, but I've found it's more accurate when you watch for specific functions in people, instead of picking out letters. At least for me it is. I no longer guess whether someone is more iNtuitive or more of a Sensor, I just watch what they do and how they do it. It usually shows itself.

    Now I'm wondering, what of the middle letters? Should we all renounce the N, S, T and F? How much more efficient are these temperaments really? ISTP gets me pretty well. Some IP explanations were dodgy in grasping me.
