    Directing/Informing--Informing. Directing is not my style.

    Initiating/Responding--Responding. I am definitely more "slow paced."

    Abstract/Concrete--I can communicate in both ways, but more often find myself communicating in a concrete manner.

    Affiliative/Pragmatic--My first inclination, as the description says, is to act independently. Sometimes, this is to my own detriment.

    So...taking all of the above into consideration, it seems I'm an ISFP. I've been "trying on" different types for awhile. This gives me yet another to "try on!"

    ENTPs have nothing in common with ESFJs or ESFPs. If you insist they are part of the same group, then you are denying reality.
    Heh heh, I'm willing to say we ENTPs do have some traits in common with the ESFJ and ESFP- in particular, our irresistible charm.

    Yea- ENTP according to this.

    ENTJ, according to this. Interestingly, that's actually my Socionics type.

    Directing/Informing - I'm tempted to say Informing but the truth of the matter is, my caricatural façade leans towards Directing

    Initiating/Responding - Initiating no doubt. And love the descriptions because that's exactly it. I have somewhat of a fear that I'll lose control over the group if I relax too much and become responding. I've been miserable in groups where I take the responding role.

    Abstract/Concrete - Gonna quote Jennifer on this one because I agree with her words completely : "Abstract without a doubt, although I force myself to go Concrete as a communication point with S-types and also to support abstract judgments."

    Affiliative/Pragmatic - I don't to be dependent on other people, and want to be in control in what is required of me.


    What type would I be?

    Informing
    Responding
    Abstract
    Pragmatic

    By that method I´m a clear INTP. Interesting.

    Responding, Concrete, Pragmatic are easy. That makes me isxp. It gets harder when I think about directing/informing or behind the scenes and chart the course. I prefer directing and chart the course but will take the informing, behind the scenes role too if it suits my purpose or am unsure. Who knows...

    I suppose a preference for informing would be a preference for giving people space and that would be why it is linked with people orientation.

    Why didn't you guys tell me that?

    That confirmed me as my type; I've never understood the directing/informing distinction before and wondered how I could be considered a directing type since I don't bark out orders, but reading Berens' explanation made it clear.

    Directing/Informing - I do both. I use inform when I try to manipulate people to make them do what I want, or if I want to give subtle directions. I suppose I might prefer to direct though, but I'm unsure. I like being blunt, but at other times I feel guilty about it.

    Initiating/Responding - I feel more comfortable responding, but I have tried to be more of an initiator lately. I think I prefer responding.

    Abstract/Concrete - Definitely prefer concrete on this one, although I do think that abstract things can be interesting.

    Affiliative/Pragmatic - Again, I'm torn. I like working with others and cooperating, but I also like being an individual. I suppose I lean more toward the affiliative side, but when I want to accomplish things, I like to do them by myself.

    So I have a choice between ISTJ, ISTP, ISFJ, and ISFP.

    ENTJ, same as me.

    You know, I think you're wrong about having a weak Te.
