    Default I was SO sure I was ENTP...

    But I just read that Calvin, of Calvin and Hobbes, is supposed to be INFP.
    Calvin's ramblings pretty much define my perspective of the world. Even as a kid (well, especially as a kid) I would read the comics and be like, "I said that to my parents TODAY!"

    Have I been looking at this MBTI thing upside-down this whole time? Goddammit.
    A colleague of the great scientist James Watson remarked that Watson was always “lounging around, arguing about problems instead of doing experiments.” He concluded that “There is more than one way of doing good science.”
    It was Watson’s form of idleness, the scientist went on to say, that allowed him to solve “the greatest of all biological problems: the discovery of the structure of DNA.” It's a point worth remembering in a society overly concerned with efficiency.

    Do you find really offensive humor to be hilarious?

    BAH.
    To be more specific: I laugh and say things like, "That's terrible!" semisarcastically. Inside, I'm fighting over whether to succumb to society's predefined morals and find it offensive, or stick to my humbly unemotional opinions.
    That's the problem... even internally I can't decide whether I'm T or F.

    But does the joke bother you?

    Overall, no.

    Could just be the Ne in common. Ya might still be ENTP. Do you generally relate better to descriptions of ENTP or INFP?

    I'm an ENTP, and when I laugh at this, My automatic response is "Geez guys, lighten up for a second's sake!" Before automactically going "SHIT! There goes my teachers' respect/kindness cred!"

    I like Thirty-eights revolving like the sun round the Earth.

    Reading the "You know you're INFP when..." thread, I related with 90% of the stuff there. However, with the more in-depth descriptions I'm definitely on the ENTP side.

    Haha, I've learned to suppress that instinct in me :P
