    My random number generator says it's an INFP.

    EDIT: I hadn't seen your post yet, it still counts! I was only one letter off.

    The fact is, statistical odds just favor you depending on what type you pick. INTP is really a cheap shot, while if you say ESTJ you'd have to be so certain as to know the person, and therefore be disqualified. Or... Just be stupid enough to pick the almost non-existent ESTJ.

    However, there's no actual reward for winning, and I've noticed that nightning has already picked people of relatively uncommon types around here, so it might not be such a good idea to play the odds.

    I am a psychology minor... do not play the odds... do not play with human natural tendencies either. I might or might not follow them.

    I'm going to disagree with some of the other posters telling you to look at cognitive functions to determine your type. In my opinion, there's just too many holes in the theory to be a good indicator of your type is. It doesn't say how, for instance, an ISFP uses Si; or an INTJ uses Ti -- etc.

    I have the best luck using Keirsey's approach of dividing the 16 types into four temperaments (SJ Guardian, SP Artisan, NT Rational, NF Idealist). It has the nice feature that it is more behavioral (focusing on communication styles, interaction, intelligence) and has the more holistic approach of emphasizing that a type is more than just the sum of the parts.
    Smug disdain is becoming a big one for me.

    I wish they had a smiley for that.
    Is this statement a lie?

    Edit: Bah, I didn't read the whole post. I'll make a list for myself later. My impulse control is low today. =p
    I also obsess over Chopin's Nocturnes. Here's some I found on youtube

    YouTube - Wladyslaw Szpilman plays Frederic Chopin's Nocturne in C#min
    YouTube - Chopin Nocturne Op.9 No.2 (Arthur Rubinstein)
    YouTube - Maurizio Pollini plays Chopin Nocturne no. 8 op. 27 no. 2

    Edit: I just realized that Wladyslaw Szpilman, the guy in the first video, was who the movie The Pianist was about.

    What do you guys think of this quote?

    "People go to church for the same reasons they go to a tavern: to stupefy themselves, to forget their misery, to imagine themselves, for a few minutes anyway, free and happy... [As a] jealous lover of human liberty, deeming it the absolute condition of all that we admire and respect in humanity, I reverse the phrase of Voltaire, and say that, if God really existed, it would be necessary to abolish him."

    - Mikhail Bakunin

    I had a huge discussion with one of my friends about it, who is something of a Deist, but I won't introduce our positions just right now in order to not influence this discussion.

    So, thoughts?
    I hear ya, man.

    I wish I could offer some advice, but I'm terrible too. What's helped me is getting more involved and thus caring about what I produce, but I'm guessing that would be a bit harder for you since high school is structured in such a way as to kill any individual contributions. (lol)

    ESTJ? er uh. i don't know. You're right. it's startin to become rocket science.
    everyone uses every function about evenly. take NE for example. if there are those who don't use it much, then why are there such massive amounts of people constantly flowing through Wallmart with 20 items or less?

    Hah, well that's perfect. There's a fair chance I'll be a sociology major, so no wonder I'd play the odds and you wouldn't.

    Oh, and the transparent flying sheep familiar is telling me that it's an ENFP. She's usually wrong, but I promised to give her a chance.

    That calculation leaves out a very important factor.

    Hmmmm if it's a random type draw yes. If I'm going by people's natural tendency to have variety no. If I'm accepting requests no. (different types of different tendencies toward asking.) So it depends.

    Man, this game is hard. (Recognized the last two people, so had to stay out.)

    ENFP? I see some Te flavor in the first quote particularly. I find the style of the list to be sort of P-like, but not very judgery at all. *Shrug* Overall, some who is not super-controlled or idealistic.

    Actually I would like to know what you think about the guessing so far, nightning? (The whole game and stuff.)
