INTP or INFP, lean INTP mainly focusing on independence first.
Based on how I act when I feel most comfortable/the way I feel most comfortable interacting with people, this says I'd be an INFJ.
I haven't really read anything on interaction styles other than the descriptions listed in the OP, but I personally think someone's interaction style can vary depending on mood, the general context of the situation, and quite possibly depending on how developed the user's functions are plus flexibility with the top four functions.
I mainly tend to go back and forth between behind the scenes and getting things going, the latter usually occurs when I am passionate about an idea and have an optimistic feeling about it. I might actually be using Fe while selling the idea to a person or group, not sure though.
Definitely an INFJ. The only thing is if I crave someone's attention, I will be much more Initiator than Responder if they happen to be more of a Responder type. But I do *prefer* when someone else initiates contact, so there is that, I guess.
@Honor check this out maybe?
You hem me in -- behind and before;
you have laid your hand upon me.
Such knowledge is too wonderful for me,
too lofty for me to attain.
Why would an ISTP be more directive than an INTP, or an INFJ more directive than an ISFJ?
It seems to me like the pieces don't fit quite right, more like the creators just slammed a fit together.
Sure, INTPs or ISFJs may be the least directive in their temperaments, but that doesn't make them the least directive as a whole.
INTPs for instance will be more directive than INFPs, or ISFJs more so than ISFPs.
Based on this I am an INTP

I'm most definitely Directing way more than Informing.
I'm definitely Initiating compared to Responding.
So that leaves me with ESTJ, ENTJ,ENFJ, ESTP
I'm the most abstract person I know. So it's a definite on Abstract Language compared to Concrete.
And honesty I dread working in a group because I just want to do things my way. A pragmatic way would be my first preference. But we live in the real world where we have to work with people and in situations beyond our control, so I have an ability for both the Pragmatic and Affiliative Roles. If I had the choice though, I would do things independently.
So that leaves me with INTP, INTJ, ENTP, ENTJ
And since I already know I relate to the ENTJ descriptions, and that's the only one that corresponds with both the interaction style and temperament, I'm going with it.
Freedom isn't free.
I'm that person that embodies pretty much everything that you hate.

Funny- no matter what tests I take- long, short, silly, serious- I always come up the same same same for the last 25 years.
And that's a wrap.
