    Here's another approach. What fictional character do you relate to LL? Then we will type that fictional character.

    That's easy.

    As a child (dare I say this?) Hermione Granger.

    As an adult the teacher from Dead Poets Society, John Keating.

    I'm not saying I AM them; just saying I RELATE.

    I don't know why I didn't notice your signature before: Overpreparing is so characteristically SJ. ("Going with the flow" is, by definition, quite the opposite of overpreparation.) This sounds like someone who is very routine-oriented but a little sensitive about being overdependent upon it, so choice of this quote suggests a desire to be more flexible, or at least appear more flexible to others. It suggests insecurity in the way others perceive parts of your identity, (as does your entire type crisis.)

    But it's largely unconscious, which is typical for inferior functions...and if I'm right about ESTJ, this lines up perfectly with inferior Fi.

    You consistently describe Te/Si as the obvious frames of reference from which everything is built, but you think from reading ESTJ descriptions that they're too boring and mundane to describe you, so you make a lot of extra effort to explain how much you enjoy fun detours into Ne and Fi. The ways you describe Ne and Fi use are particularly consistent with tertiary and inferior functional processes.

    I really think you just don't want to accept the ESTJ label because ESTJ descriptions are generally poorly written and don't go into much about positive use of the tertiary and inferior functions. The descriptions you've read probably are too boring to describe you properly, but that isn't because you're borderline between 14 different types; it's because ESTJs are a poorly understood and poorly documented type.

    The descriptions focus almost exclusively on the overbearing Te and Si aspects of hyper-authoritarianism, but neglect to mention much about well-balanced and intelligent ESTJs who make significant use of Ne and Fi as well. I'm guilty of this myself: I had instinctively typed an old girlfriend as ENTJ because I remember being so impressed by her wit and creativity, only to realize after she tested ESTJ that I'd just unconsciously equated "wit and creativity" with "N type."

    I believe this is the root of your problem. You are ESTJ, but you mix in more of your tertiary and inferior functions (either that or are exaggerating how much you use them out of some desire to avoid being boxed into a "boring type") than most traditional portrayals of ESTJs would indicate.

    If you could be anything you want, I bet you'd be disappointed--am I right?

    Because she's an ESTJ.
    God damn it. We'll never figure this out. It's a waste of my time. I'm chasing my tail. Ferk.

    I appreciate all this effort, really, I do. Please believe me. But damn it. When are we going to get an answer?


    I feel like a mouse fart.

    Yes, it was constructive. You post like her. And no, I wasn't being an asshole.
