^ ENFP, if you're quite sure you're intuitive. Otherwise, you sound like you could be ESFP. I'm not even sold on the Fi though....
Oh, and I'd expect an INFP to be able to go on for paragraphs about their friends
lol, I am so not an ESFP, but I have been considering S, but it's unlikely. He talks about the latest thing his friend did and what colour his hat should be and stuff, I talk about crazy ideas and according to one of my friends, follow tangents between mid sen- let's tame the ducks and use them to scare people!

I think I have proved that I'm not an ESFP... this is ridiculous , I'm reading a few of these resources, mainly on introversion/extroversion and thinking/feeling. I think I've just been lead to believe incorrect information about some of the... you know... things...
The last test I took showed up INXJ right? well, they have dominant intuition... obviously the test was picking up on something, it probably coupled it with introversion, and labeled it Ni... either way, I test quite high on the intuitive scale. And I know a few S dominants, I can tell when they're using it (Si is a bit more difficult though), I am a sensotard. I've been reading up on the T/F definitions, and the E/I definitions and the likes, and I think that I'm more E & T, than I & F. I can be nice, I can be tactful, but when it comes to decisions, I side with logic rather than personal values and ethics. The E/I I'm not so certain about, I speak off the top of my mind when I talk to people... and often say dumb things, and I also really need to talk things out before I can understand them.
I know an ISFJ introvert that is very very good with people, but really needs alone time, and it's quite obvious. His parents are quite clearly SJs (the father was probably a thinker, mother was likely ESFJ), and they seemed to really encourage dinner table discussions and nurturing type things. I was fairly isolated by my parents, I wasn't aloud to ask them questions, or enter their rooms or anything, and dad always told me that I needed more confidence. In the car, I was frequently told to stfu so that they could drive. I've always been quite, but I'm not entirely sure if it was introversion, or just subjugation. In the past few years, I've been sort of teaching myself... at first I was definitely rather boring, I was talking to the wrong kinds of people about things I thought they would find interesting. Lately, I just say anything, and I'm finding it rather hard to just shut up and I can't stand it when I'm ignored/not understood... I think I need to tone it down a little .
Also, after following the link Orange left on another thread, I think I can relate to the EXTP tertiary temptation
Tertiary Fe (ExTP): "I'll lay a guilt trip on this guy, tell him all I've done for him and suggest that the next time he's in a tough spot, he might need my help. Well, hmm, ok, I'll be all friendly. I'll smile, tell him I like him, what a great guy he is. Well, hmm, that's not working, either. Ok, I'll make him look bad in the eyes of his friends." The Secondary Function (Ti) would say: "What is the truth? Not what people would agree is true, not an angle on the truth for making it palatable to someone, but the whole, honest truth?"
Just recently, one of my mates organised to go to the movies, without inviting me, supposedly because he believed that I would abuse his free tickets privileges. By sheer chance, I ran into a bit of trouble, and a chatterbox mother informed me of the event in which I was not meant to know of. I didn't react on the spot, I never do, I keep a straight face and move on, but later, I felt completely unwanted from everyone, but I rationalized that he probably meant well and that I should get over it. I wasn't convinced that he was being an ass, until ISTJ came along and shared his spiteful viewpoint with me. Then... I kind of looked through the options, I realize that I could organise my own outings and not invite him, but I have no money. So I decided to play on his guilt... say that I found out about it, and personally bring it to him, play on his guilt for my own petty revenge.
The Ti advice part actually helps me with this situation (which is yet to be addressed), I've been thinking it over, asking people what they think, and I went back to the first view point... sort of, well, I'm still thinking about it, I need more info, from the man himself most likely
ha ha king of despair, i have that tertiary temptation as well, Fe, and I def am not ExTP, so... i don't believe in that tertirary stuff.
Maybe you are ENTJ, they look like ENFP sometimes. :confused:
... ooooor... maybe I'm right and I'm an ENTP. What the hell made you think that I'm an ENTJ? lol, first I have dominant Fi, now it's inferior!?!? Is there anything that suggests that I am not an ENTP? There is no doubt that I'm an NP, Ne is in there somewhere, dominant or not, it's quite strong.

lol, I've got no money (literally bankrupt) for the time being, it's what happens when you have no job and your parents can't really support you , so I won't be able to make any sort of international calls (at least until further notice). Right now, I'm taking Sol's advice, it makes sense, I realize that I don't have all that much theory on my side, I need to actually read things (as much as I struggle to focus on it). I might have a look for books and stuff at the library, or perhaps even take up a sociology course now that I'm possibly free for the next 6 months.
well, i told you you can call with skype for *free* 0.00 AUD :P
ENTP? Well, you just sound too feelerish to me to be T
did you say that you need a deposit to sign up to skype? or did I just misread that... hmmm, if it's 100% free, I'll definitely give it a go
LOL, are you sure that it's not extroversion? Being emotional is an extroverted thing you know , they feel it more according to what I've been reading. I am certain that I identify with the T side, I'm quicker to look for logical pros and cons rather than making feeling based decisions and etc, I've seen Fs and Ts argue morally before, my view point is always different, but it is more similar to the Ts than the Fs. But then again, I do have a caring side, I can help people by recommending that they see a doctor about their sudden weight loss, I can be tactful, but the T preference comes first. Even when deciding whether I'm INFP or ENTP, I need a logical reason to pick a side, I don't just believe that I'm one or the other, It has to all fit , the tests, the actions, everything.
