    Default EXTJ bro

    Once upon a time, I conspired to type my brothers, I introduced one of them to MBTI, he turned out to be ESFP (although he tested a whole variety of other types). The ESFP thought it would be a good idea to try to work out the other brother's type, eventually we came to the conclusion of ISTJ, read it, and it kind of fitted him. I realized just recently after talking to him about his band and how he gets his energy... turns out that he's an extrovert

    How do I know whether he's an S or an N?

    S - practical, detail-oriented, focuses on the present, more structured, look for facts, etc.

    N - imaginative, innovative, interested in future possibilities, more abstract, theoretical, etc.

    Judging by his creativity, I would probably lean towards N, but sensors can be imaginative, innovative and theoretical right? What are some of the main differences between an ENTJ and an ESTJ specifically?

    hmm... maybe I should actually describe him...

    well... I have limited information, but anyway:
    - has an aggressive taste in music
    - uses techno to get ideas for beats when creating music
    - very funny, we entertain each other quite a fair bit
    - doesn't seem to care so much about what others think of him
    - He can be quite aggressive, but he knows where to vent that aggression
    - He's a bit rebellious towards rules, he'd probably rather make them than follow others

    What kind of things do I really need to list/look out for to work out which side he falls on the S/N axis?

    ESTJ humor is frequently centered around something or someone being off center or behaving abnormally.
    His humor is often quite random, In particular, he enjoys yelling out random words to make people laugh. I don't quite know if he does the above...

    What is ENTJ humor usually like?

    I suppose they can be, but which (S or N) does he fit more? I can't really tell from the description you gave above.

    Also:
    ESTJ - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia vs. ENTJ - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    I guess, maybe around his colleagues. Thing is, he think he's funny but he's not at all. The humor he uses is not funny imo.
