    Yeah, the ITP description, especially the "Learning Style" category fit my childhood experience quite well.

    Let's just say you're an ISTJ because there aren't that many around here and I like to know that my sensing type is down with the net.

    Virtually everything he's posted in this topic sounds SP. Some people act like SPs can't function at work or something. Like we can only get jobs as professional stuntmen or drug dealers or something. I'll have you know I have an office job and right now am hard at work....posting on an internet forum.

    Crap.

    I just finished reading that, and I don't think that section was specific enough to make a determination on type.

    I had this same problem when I first started figuring out my type. I thought I was INTJ at first, then INTP, then ISTP, and I finally landed on ISTJ. I had a hard time believing my J because I'm not a neat freak or anything. I rarely clean unless things start getting out of hand. The J is all about how you handle your external life, anyway. Like, for instance, one way you can tell a J or P is how someone dresses. A P is going to care about their clothing, but won't care much about having a pulled together coordinated look. A J will want everything in place in their outfit, everything to match, and will have an organized look to them.

    How you handle the outside world and how you handle yourself are two different cognitive processes. With an ISTP, you approach the outside world with Extraverted Sensing, meaning you're looking to adapt yourself to the external world. You then use Introverted Thinking to maintain yourself, so you use an internal set of logical rules and take things apart in your head.

    An ISTJ uses Extraverted Thinking for the outside world, meaning they deal with it impersonally and objectively. They want it to be structured and task oriented. ISTJs use Introverted Sensing for dealing with themselves, meaning they focus on having a vast memory of facts and details, without even realizing it. Introverted Sensing is about having your own set of personal experiences and expectations, also. People who use Introverted Sensing, instead of adapting themselves to the outside world like Extraverted Sensing, adapt the outside world to their own set of rules.

    The cognitive processes aren't THAT reliable, though, in terms of how rigid they are in usage. The truth in their definitions is reliable. People use all 8 of them, just some more effectively than the others.

    All this stuff is definitely helping me. If I were to rate my cognitive functions, I would say it's like this...

    Ti - Very High
    Fi - High
    Te - High
    Ne - Medium
    Si - Medium
    Se - Low
    Fe - Very Low
    Ni - Very Low

    From what I see you really have parts of both, J and P. But the P wins with 1 or 2 points more. From what you have described it is like 60:40 for P.
    But I think you are right with your statement (J when working, P when not).
    Rule #1: Driver picks the music. Shotgun shuts his cakehole.

    Again, Demons I get, but people are just crazy.

    ESTP? o.O

    I equated your functions and your results came out as a clear ISTP.

    I'd say (by my own scale, 100% being rare):

    I 40%
    S 10%
    T 40%
    P 40%

    If you are quite sure about this function ranking, then you are most definitely an ISTP.
