    If you're having this much trouble with it, maybe you should just not worry about this and find a different hobby. It's really not that significant, honestly.
    Yeah, maybe you're right. Eff it...I give up. For now.

    By the way, ENFJ is completely wrong. We've narrowed it down to something in the Si/Te/Fi/Ne quadrant, so you're almost certainly either xNFP or xSTJ.

    You've shown very little evidence of Fe, Ni, Se or Ti at all, so I'd drop the whole "ENFx" thing. Claiming to be borderline ENFP/ENFJ doesn't make any sense anyway because those imply completely different function sets.
    If you could be anything you want, I bet you'd be disappointed--am I right?

    Linguist, do you believe that existence/the universe is inherently RATIONAL or IRRATIONAL?
    I think there is a purpose. If that is what you are asking...

    I don't think in terms of rational and irrational. I think in terms of purpose.

    LL, My advice for you is to make a concerted effort to understand the differences between the 8 functions yourself, and how they differ in behaviour when placed in the various type orders. I don't think asking strangers on the internet to do it for you is helping anymore.

    At least you can be pretty sure you're extraverted

    I think you've gotten all the useful advice you're going to get out of us here. The more you emphasize one side of your personality the more people will say that one sounds likely, and then you emphasize a different side a lot more so people change their minds.

    The unavoidable problem here is that none of us know you in real life so it's impossible for us to know when you're providing a balanced self-portrait and when you're not. At the end of the day, you're going to have to decide this for yourself. Our type reads are limited by the scope of information you give us.
    I really think this is the key to all the typing that goes on on the forum. I've actually guessed that anyone who is an X (sorry!) just doesn't want to be labeled. I'm thinking that in their mind it makes it more of a guess as to who they are and less possible to "pigeonhole" them.

    Saying this, I really was wanting to type myself the wrong way (after already typing myself enfp) until I found my professional test. I think that helped a lot, since I have an answer to what I was like at that point in my life.

    I think a lot of people are probably off on the typing they do of people they know in real life, I don't trust their online typing much more than I trust their offline typing.

    Geez.....

    The J/P distinction is really not that hard to determine.


    Linguist, which appeals to you more:


    1. Setting specific goals and working hard to achieve them

    OR

    2. Following inspirations and taking life as it comes


    For the love of GOD---TRY to make a choice, please----the two options are really pretty different!!!!!!
