I was asked to join this forum by someone, whose mind I highly respect and whom I find insightful. When I first read the PM, I thought to myself, just another MBTI forum what's the use since I stopped learning on the INTPCentral forum sometime ago.
Let me introduce myself, if some of you aren't aware of my past. I call myself Functianalyst (Functional Analyst) on the entp.org and enneagram institute forums. I was originally INTrPosr at intpcentral, but changed my name when I validated my type through years of study. I am happy to finally know that I am ISTP. In saying that, I am hopeful that most of you have overcome any arduous and pain staking attempts to find your best fit type by self validation.
