    Sometimes people post on forums because they're bored or need an outlet. Sometimes they're in transition phases of their lives.. so naturally, due to a state of uncertainly, they're not going to be in the best of moods all the time.

    In other words, situational factors don't reflect overall personality. Real life interactions are a better read (non-verbal communication is just as strong, if not, more communicative than through text).

    I agree. Trust people you are closest with. They tend to know us most, second to ourselves. Btw, I voted ENFP.
    Thanks .

    I was sort of in a transitional phase but seem to be powering out of it.

    Summary Analysis of Profile
    By focusing on the strongest configuration of cognitive processes, your pattern of responses most closely matches individuals of this type: ENTP

    Lead (Dominant) Process
    Extraverted Intuiting (Ne): Exploring the emerging patterns. Wondering about patterns of interaction across various situations. Checking what hypotheses and meanings fit best. Trusting what emerges as you shift a situations dynamics.

    Support (Auxilliary) Process
    Introverted Thinking (Ti): Gaining leverage (influence) using a framework. Detaching to study a situation from different angles and fit it to a theory, framework or principle. Checking for accuracy. Using leverage to solve the problem.

    If these cognitive processes don't fit well then consider these types: INTP, or ENFP

    I'm going to score XXXX next, hehe. That makes a big case for NFP though, because of how arbitrary my answers were. I would expect a T to score more consistently, though I may be wrong. The Fi is dulled by the wording of Fi questions also, you know what purists we are. So ENFP is pretty much an option. Why Te is so low again puzzles me? Would xNFP sometimes relegate both Te and Si to the inferior and boost other functions?

    It seems like the results of this test are supporting Lenore Thomson's theory that the tertiary and inferior are really 7th and 8th. (and the other four are in the middle as right and left brain alternatives). Like most INTP's come out with Si and Fe as the weakest, and strong Ni/Se. (I was different from that, with Si in place at 3rd, and Se/Ni weakest).
    I feel more Sanguine-Phlegmatic of the two. I'm not really rebellious at all. Prefer to meet people on their terms, unless there is something I see as important in the argument.
    Ne with either Ti or Fi will often produce a rebellious streak when things are imposed on you. You see possibilities and don't want to be tied down to anything. Yet what you had described regarding some of your mischeif as a teen sounded more NTP than NFP.Seeing something as important does sound more like Fi. Also, I had started a discussion on the Thinking attitudes and math, and a few ENFP's did say they were good at math.

    This is the funniest one yet. They really need clearer questions. I realised quite a few describe things I agree with rather than am also.

    Cognitive Process Level of Development (Preference, Skill and Frequency of Use)
    introverted Intuiting (Ni) *************************** (40.5) excellent use
    extraverted Sensing (Se) *************************** (39.3) excellent use
    extraverted Intuiting (Ne) *************************** (38.2) excellent use
    introverted Feeling (Fi) *************************** (30.2) good use
    introverted Thinking (Ti) *************************** (28.3) average use
    extraverted Feeling (Fe) *************************** (25.5) average use
    extraverted Thinking (Te) **************************** (24) limited use
    introverted Sensing (Si) *************************** (14) unused

    Summary Analysis of Profile
    By focusing on the strongest configuration of cognitive processes, your pattern of responses most closely matches individuals of this type: ESFP

    Lead (Dominant) Process
    Extraverted Sensing (Se): Immersing in the present context. Responding naturally to everything tangible you detect through your senses. Checking with what your gut instincts say. Testing limits and take risks for big rewards.

    Support (Auxilliary) Process
    Introverted Feeling (Fi): Staying true to who you really are. Paying close attention to your personal identity, values and beliefs. Checking with your conscience. Choosing behavior congruent with what is important to you.

    If these cognitive processes don't fit well then consider these types: ISFP, or ENFP

    Hmm, I didn't put ESFP on the list. Might consider it.

    Though this has been an amusing journey, in more proving the test didn't say much than disproving my type, I think I'm satisfied. Though I was never that worried about being anything but an xNFP or ENxP.

    The 4w5 enneagram and past experiences have had an interesting effect on the ENFP type for me though. I am not a Ti rational and never will be, but I am logical. And I am desensitised to many things that would promote empathetic reactions in other ENFPs. I often find amusement in situations and crossing lines, but no longer find amusement when they have a severe impact on people. I can be the first in the group to realise also. I don't get hurt by these situations, I just stare the consequences in the face. I am not offended, I just know what they feel and that it should not happen, and feel the duty to stop it. Maybe it's a passing thing, maybe it's always been that way. Maybe I grew up in a family that never recognised the value of contact between people. Or Fi. Hugs just didn't exist. The ENFP tried to escape but always got confronted with be strong and stand up for yourself. And it became something I did well. In my late teens I had to do the exploring myself to really discover myself. The problem was not that I wasn't treated well, but that I had a great family which just didn't correspond to my way of being or reinforce it in any way.

    They say we type mimic well. And sometimes we walk more than 1000 miles in their shoes. Sometimes we have trouble taking them off again. I am not a Ti but I can be one, reluctantly these days because I know the true part of me it oppressed. I spent so long trying to find a way within the framework of my surroundings that it took a long time to get out. I'm a classic ENFP and I would sooner roll around on the floor laughing or go a group hug. But instead I am still stuck in a science field. How changing fields changes me in the next year will be interesting.

    I voted ENFP because of the things you've written in your blog. No way that came from anyone but another ENFP.

    I was always really good at math and science too, so I don't think that rules out ENFP at all.

    Maybe I grew up in a family that never recognised the value of contact between people. Or Fi. Hugs just didn't exist.
    That's probably it right there. My family was the same way, so I grew up acting way more T than F. There was nothing abusive or neglectful, we just didn't discuss feelings...ever. I mean, I had to say "I love you" to my parents and all that, but it was more like a social ritual than anything with emotion behind it.

    And I don't think all ENFPs have to be super-sensitive and get offended by inappropriate jokes. My sense of humor is pretty sick and twisted at times too.

    I spent so long trying to find a way within the framework of my surroundings that it took a long time to get out.
    That sounds familiar too - I had to move out of town before I got it all figured out. I definitely think it's because we're so good at mimicing other types. I tend to reflect the people I have around me, which is really annoying when you're stuck with all xSTx family members. All the feely stuff is still under the surface, but it doesn't come out because we adapt to the mode of communication everyone else is using.

    Thanks .

    Yeh, the ISTP in my family probably causes me to stay in my place the most, but is also the one I look up to the most. They are awesome, just hard to feel totally free around without giving up part of yourself as an ENFP. I just don't move as quickly action wise and in the moment as a Ti Se. And there is a definiteness than makes the philosophical pondering rather useless.

    I can totally relate. Changing fields, is absolutely something worth mentioning.. When we go through transitional phases in our lives (career or major life changes- death in a family, death of a relationship- ex bf/gf or gf/gf..yada yada), we won't necessarily be our best selves all the time. During this period, things seem a bit unclear.. it's natural. I firmly believe that attitudes & behaviors change according to situations, hence, the transition phases; personalities, at core, do not.

    I also grew up in a household where emotions weren't expressed that well either. Mom was (still is) an F, but wasn't the type who was 'motherly' lovey, dovey, "coo" type. Not at all. To others she was though.. It was ALL tough love for me.

    (I take back what I mentioned earlier.. somewhat). We can trust those we're closest to... Here's the big "B" word- BUT if they're our guardians (parents, caretakers), be careful with their descriptions about us. Often times, I find that parents *try* to shape and mold us into something *they* want us to be (to fulfill *their* dreams), rather than let us be who we really are at heart. (That's a form of DISRESPECT). Other times, some parents are clueless. Some don't even know how to read their own kids! For the fortunate ones, the ones with well-attuned parents who give unconditional love- I would trust their responses a bit more.

    One thing I find that helps is to ask:
    1. When was the time that I was my MOST happiest self? (True and untouched)
    2. How was it like? Which temperamental pattens did I most prefer?
    3. How did I interact with other children?? What were some of my favorite topics in class? What moved me? What moved others about me? (So many me's, I know- it's Silly).
    4. What books did I read? What attracted me to them? Why?
    5. Who were my inspirational figures? What were their personalties like?? How would I type them?? A lot of the times, we admire role-models who exhibit personalities similar to ours.

    (Btw, - I don't think all kids are ENFPs. Clearly, there are some kids who are naturally more introverted than others- they're happy with it- And, the misconception people have about kids always bouncing off walls, hyperly happy isn't true. Some kids weren't as excited as children, but that made them happy. In their own eyes, they made sense of the world differently. That's who they are).

    Like you, I went through a phase where I was confused about who I was prior to finding out about myself.. why I didn't 'fit in,' why nothing around me made sense. It was mostly due to growing up in a predominantly ESTJ household that caused my confusion.. being told I wasn't 'good enough' that I needed to be more demure, less wearing my heart on my sleeves. First time I found out my scores (my career counselor had me take the test/assessment), I never felt SO RELIEVED my entire life! My ENFP results made sense to me (and to him).. It was clear as day! That's when I was able to wake up and walk away from the negative environment that kept me emotionally imprisoned during those years. Other times, I felt uncertain about myself, because I was still in the 'break away' phase that left me uneasy. I hope I'm understanding the situation correctly, because I definitely knew how it once felt!

    Separate yourself from the environment for now.. Dissociate any influencing factors. Take a break from everything. Think about the time when you felt at most PEACE with yourself, what made most sense. Listen to your heart. That doesn't mean, we're choosing preference over T or F. When I say that, I mean physically see how your body responds when you really listen to that inner kid inside you and ask, "Who am I, Truly??" when asking the questions above. Once the conclusions are clearer, the answer should feel right, physiologically. No hesitations. No tight feelings in your chest. Think of it as a form meditation (I don't know how to meditate... I assume) that by doing so, it's like relaxation that helps you to really 'center' yourself (corny, but true, haha).

    Noigmn, I really do think you're truly an ENFP.. but then again, it's really hard to get a 'complete' read through text/the internet. I know I have friends who I know I wouldn't be friends with if I based their personalities through our e-mail conversations. I think ultimately, the only person who knows the answer is the person buried deep within. Caffeine high.. Sorry so long. I had tons of green tea today that I'm still super wide awake! It's killing me.. Ok, I'll stop now..
