    I actually started to do it for you, but just didn't have time. (Especially with all the .5's)
    Okay, I'll calculate it.

    But again, that is just my spontaneous feeling...

    Have you tried using interaction styles?
    Those are quite handy. ENFJs and ENFPs are in quite a different area to ISFJs.

    Chart-the-Course™ & In-Charge™
    Directive Communications - Give structure, direct (NO)

    Behind-the-Scenes™ & Get-Things-Going™
    Informing Communications - Evoke, draw forth, seek input (YES)

    In-Charge™ & Get-Things-Going™
    Initating Roles- External World, reach out, interact (YES)

    Chart-the-Course™ & Behind-the-Scenses
    Responding Roles- Internal world, reflect, slow pace (NOT REALLY)

    In-Charge™ & Behind-the-Scenes™
    Control - Focus on control over the outcome (SOMETIMES)

    Chart-the-Course™ & Get-Things-Going™ have in common
    Movement - Focus on movement toward the goal (YES)

    Hmm, for all the yes answers, Get-Things-Going seems to be the common factor, with some mixed results. Let's check out the individual descriptions now.

    Hahaha, well I'm searching for truth ~ I'm on a quest to find myself. I find that works better by getting lots of sources, lots of input and feedback (probably more objective than my own analysis) and placing all the bits into a mosaic and making a picture (that can be changed as necessary when new data comes in).

    It's the damn J/P dichotomy. As a 50% J, you long to KNOW, GET IT and say Whewwwww that's done - I FINALLY KNOW WHO I AM.

    As a 50% P you say, damn, you never know who you really are, and you need to keep testing and trying and doing this and that to find out just a little bit MORE because your info is never complete.

    I'm so silly!

    We'll be waiting for the results.
    Curious, don't you trust your own function analysis displayed there?

    Chart-the-Course™

    The theme is having a course of action to follow. YES

    People of this stylefocus on knowing what to do and keeping themselves, the group, or the project on track. YES, but usually JUST me.

    They prefer to enter a situation having an idea of what is to happen. YES, a general idea is good.

    They identify a process to accomplish a goal and have a somewhat contained tension as they work to create and monitor a plan. YES

    The aim is not the plan itself, but to use it as a guide to move things along toward the goal. Well, yes, I suppose.

    Their informed and deliberate decisions are based on analyzing, outlining, conceptualizing or foreseeing what needs to be done. Oh, that might not be so accurate - I have issues making decisions sometimes.

    Behind-the-Scenes™

    The theme is getting the best result possible. YES

    People of this style focus on understanding and working with the process to create a positive outcome. YES

    They see value in many contributions and consult outside inputs to make an informed decision. DEFINITELY

    They aim to integrate various information sources and accommodate differing points of view. YES

    They approach others with a quiet, calm style that may not show their strong convictions. UM, NOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!

    Producing, sustaining, defining, and clarifying are all ways they support a group's process. Well, not reallyyyy.

    They typically have more patience than most with the time it takes to gain support through consensus for a project or to refine the result. HELLZ NO! I`m as impatient as a girl waiting to stop sitting on an ant hill filled with angry fire ants.

    In-Charge™

    The theme is getting things accomplished through people. YES

    People of this style are focused on results, often taking action quickly. UM, Not always, no. Yes with teaching

    They often have a driving energy with an intention to lead a group to the goal. Um, not lead the group - go there myself. Unless teaching. Then yes

    They make decisions quickly to keep themselves and others on task, on target, and on time. No, but I make decisions that WORK and still keep myself on task, target and time.

    They hate wasting time and having to back track. YES

    Mentoring, executing actions, supervising, and mobilizing resources are all ways they get things accomplished. YES with mentoring, supervising; no with executing and mobilizing.

    They notice right away what is not working in a situation and become painfully aware of what needs to be fixed, healed, or corrected. SOMETIMES

    Get-Things-Going™

    The theme is persuading and involving others. YES involving; NO persuading

    They thrive in facilitator or catalyst roles and aim to inspire others to move to action, facilitating the process. YES DEFINITELY

    Their focus is on interaction, often with an expressive style. YES

    They Get-Things-Going™ with upbeat energy, enthusiasm, or excitement, which can be contagious. YES DEFINITELY

    Exploring options and possibilities, making preparations, discovering new ideas, and sharing insights are all ways they get people moving along. YES DEFINITELY

    They want decisions to be participative and enthusiastic, with everyone involved and engaged. TOTALLY

    Well, there you have it folks, looks like I'm a Get-Things-Going kind of gal with some moderate Take-Charge, Stick-to-it-iveness, and Charting Shit.
