    Oops, I guess I didn't answer your question about the American Idol dude. Well, he seems pretty intelligent for an aggie, but then again, he's got a mop on his head and he doesn't seem to realize it. I'm going to guess ISTP who has been forced by some college influences to come across a little more F than he usually would. Dr. Jeffster has spoken.

    Anything.

    You're off to a good start.
    I'm afraid you'll have to wait for an NP to come along if you want to be asked questions.

    Thanks for your input.
    The one thing that makes me think he's an F is that on the day he waited to find out if he was in the Top 24, he spent something like 4 hours waiting in a room with everyone else. All that time, people came back announcing either that they had made it or that they were going home.
    Jason describes that day as "emotionally draining".
    I wonder if an ISTP would get emotionally drained?

    I think anybody can get emotionally drained. Just because someone is T oriented doesn't mean they don't have emotions, or feel the draining of those emotions. If anything, it might be worse for Ts because they want things to be logical and so often they aren't.

    Maybe I'm not normal, but I don't know what "emotionally drained" feels like.
    I have never described myself as "emotionally drained".
    I have been "exhausted" before.
    I have been "burned out" before.
    But my emotions don't play a part in that.

    Maybe an "S" experiences their feelings differently than an "N".
    I had an ISFP friend, and an ISFJ friend for that matter - both females - who would manifest their feelings into their body, i.e. bad feelings would become a physical malady, an ache, a pain, a sickness. I never do that.

    Hmmm, I thought everybody did that. At least a little. I guess that's what this place is here for. Learn something new every day.

    I would think so. I certainly get emotionally drained, but of course, I'm always flip-flopping between F and T so don't take my word for it. My husband is ENTJ and gets emotionally drained very easily. It's so hard for him to deal with the emotional aspects of life that it sucks a lot out of him. My daughter who is F is better at dealing with these things and it takes a lot more for her to feel the effects.

    ie - spend time fantasizing about the future fulfillment of hopes and wishes
    If so, more evidence that I am one.

    I wouldn't take it as evidence of a particular type.
    In my opinion, different people have different definitions of what "daydreaming" is.

    I was going to raise the Se/Ne difference. I think that INPs in general may look for possiblities and may never act if they do not rise to the INPs expectations. The Se as it develops will make ISPs do something.

    In the end both IFPs daydream as do other introverts, but like INJs and ISTs, ISFPs may feel compelled to do something or at least become realistic for what it's worth.
