    Well, I know nothing about type and stuff, and I've never met you face-to-face, so I should probably shut up. However, allow me to summarize what I've seen and heard from/about you.

    You definitely come across as very Se-like. But I've read that introverts show their aux to the world, and their first function is a very deep, personal side. So could it be that you are ISFP, but you always show us your Se side?

    I've heard a lot of people comment that your N is well developed. If you were ESFP, that would be highly unlikely, wouldn't it? As I recall, you're in your early 30s, right? So that would mean your tertiary is starting to really come into play, and can we REALLY say that's Te?

    Hmm.

    Besides, how you come across online can be very different from real life. Only you can really tell if you find interacting with the world around you and acting in the immediate context (not necessarily with people!!!) is exciting or draining for you. Or if you really feel like Se guides you or just helps you out.

    What can we conclude? I'm too incompetent to figure it out myself, but those are my impressions. Nothing else other than XSFP - probably a weak i or a weak e.

    Besides, we have to be really careful of not treading the slippery slope of folk typology, and rather look at what motivates your thoughts and feelings.

    And is your posting style not in the moment?

    How do you tell expressive via this forum? Is it because I post in a lot of different topics and you post mostly in your own blog?

    Maybe you are ESFP too!

    Hmm, interesting. heart said my blog was "totally Fi." Maybe I only show it when I'm being semi-serious?

    Is it possible you are just a shy ESFP?
    That sounds like a contradiction but I guess according to some theories, it is possible. Some people say your "true self" can be blocked from coming out by certain factors. In my case, I have a father who squelched* all outward expressiveness in a lot of situations when I was a child. He didn't let me sing or tell stories in the car most of the time, for instance. Could I be I was trained to be introverted? But even if so, would it really last when I haven't been under my father's control for 20 years now?

    Yeah, I understand. That's part of why I was getting restless as ISFP. Now there's too many on here so I'm not as unique.

    Do you think it is impossible to tell expressive on the forum?

    Yes, do you believe you can tell expressive from reserved on a forum?
    It is the way you post. A lot of off the cuff remarks. Also I've heard you comment often on how you just do, you seem to be very in the moment. Spontaneous.

    ISFP not ESFP.

    I'm not good at starting conversations, even with friends, but in a scenario like the one you posted I don't think I would have a problem. I'm a great storyteller.

    --------------

    No one starts conversations better than I do. No one except for ESFPs. Yes ESFPs are good conversationalists, even better (much better) than entp and if you are a ESFP who has a conversation starting issue even with friends you must be a ESFP with a stone in your throat.

    So, what are you saying is the difference between my posts and yours? Do you think in advance about your posts? I think spontaneity is a general SP trait, maybe even a general P trait, it doesn't seem to be limited to extraverts.

    Jeffster, you are fucking awesome, and that's all we need to know.

    ^^^ Why isn't that a poll option?

    Apparently he wants to know what type he is (whether he is an ESFP) not whether you think he is fucking awesome.
