    I'm looking for additional input on my type. There are some basic characteristics and activities that I enjoy. Thanks for the feedback.

    • Analytical
    • Honest (Sometimes to a Fault)
    • Always Thinking
    • Future Focused
    • Sarcastic
    • Withdrawn
    • Conversations reference multiple topics at a time since at any point I make random connections without even trying.
    • Often I laugh at my own jokes and don't share with others.


    Activities
    • Philosophical Discussions
    • Reading Non-Fiction and Science Fiction
    • Running
    • Discussing Word Views
    • Studying a wide variety of topics
    • Listening/Reading News
    • Playing Trumpet
    • Listening to Music

    • Strategy Games
    • Trying new foods or activities
    • Sex (Lately, it's been very fuck buddy oriented.)

    First I'd put you in the NP area.

    The random connections to everything and the range of interests (no specialisation) seem very Ne dominant. Though a few parts seem more INFP or maybe INTP.

    If you want a starting point, look through the descriptions for the four NP types. Maybe start with ENFP and ENTP. If they seem way off, then maybe I've misinterpreted some of the points.

    ENFP, ENTP, INFP, INTP

    I'm inclined to reject the premise I'm an extravert for several reasons. My natural default is to be antisocial and small talk bores me. I seek out people when they have new information on a subject or mutual interests. Quite frankly, I'm stuck in my head most of the time and people have a very difficult time relating to me. Also, I spend a lot of time reading and will pull out a book in large groups if I dont find anyone very interesting.

    Perhaps it would be beneficial to explain how some of my interests intersect. I'm an international studies (concentration Latin America) and Spanish major. Writing, Political/Economic Theory, world views, news, and philosophy are all activities that fall within that specific focus. Also, I'm a history buff.

    Science and music are secondary to me, but I enjoy the theory and pattern involved. I pick up very easily on theory and concepts. These are my guilty pleasures. Music is my escape and a way to stimulate my brain. I'm fascinated by the organization observed in the natural world and the theories that develop from those observations.

    Would you say you are a definite T? Are you more people or theory focussed? ie. what is the underlying motive when you read? Is it just to learn, is it seeing truth, or being better equipped to help people, etc.?

    NTP.
    not sure about I/E as both are very withdrawn with NTPs.
    "I'd never die for my beliefs, I might be wrong"

    "Is it not enough to see that a garden is beautiful without having to believe there are fairys at the bottom of it too"

    "Intelligence is being able to hold too opposing views in the mind at the one time without going crazy" - Now all I need to figure out is if I'm intelligent or crazy!

    This is surely not the best method for typing - a list of traits. I say just talk about people or tasks, your interests and hobbies (most importantly, why are you interested in them? What is it that draws you and appeals to you about them?), and your interpretation of such. Life priorities, how you think, how you are communication-wise, just write a good few paragraphs about yourself.

    When you're in a group, what are you focused on (the atmosphere, emotional expression, exchange of ideas, productiveness, etc.?) What is your typical group behavior, and how'd you like groups to be and behave (small size, emotionally subdued, spontaneous, disorganized activities, etc.) Least favorite group behavior?

    Yeah I agree, talk about this. Then we can get a better idea of your type.
