    I should rephrase what I said: I think there's too many holes in the MBTI cognitive functions model to accurately determine your type. It's still insightful, but since it doesn't paint a complete picture of how all the extroverted-this and introverted-thats fits together, I think it's too easy to rationalize being radically different types and get stuck in a never-ending loop.

    I'm thinking primarily in terms of dichotomies. I've yet to find an accurate test for the eight functions (strictly MBTT-related that is). The one that Splittet constantly recommends I don't think is good. I've explained why countless times.

    Ezra - I'm not sure which is better yet but I find anything that gives real-life examples more helpful since it lessens the ambiguity. I have a tendency to read way too much into things epecially vague explanations. What do you think of this:?

    How to Experience Different Function-Attitudes

    I found it incredibly helpful and I was really able to understand the functions better in terms of my own behavior. Hopefully the person who wrote it knows what they are talking about!

    I love the F versus T question in Do What You Are. If it's accurate then I'm definately an F.

    One doesn't have to use a test, introspection is also possible, you know. (But it is easier for people with little function knowledge to use a test.) The test is obviously not perfect, but its input is especially valuable to someone who knows how to interpret it, and might discover obvious typing mistakes. Many SPs wrongly type themselves as NPs for example, because they consider themselves creative. The test will rather easily be able to tell if that is the case.

    I think you should really consider your own cognitive functions profile as well, because I doubt you ENTJ typing, but sure, I have seen a few things that might support it as well. If you want to pursue the dichotomy perspective I recommend you Big Five. It's a lot better and far more nuanced than MBTI in that respect, and has relatively large scientific support. I especially recommend the SLOAN+ system, which is great.

    You probably wouldn't recognize an ENFP if they'd even been under your nose for years!!

    What do you mean? SPs are supposed to be creative, just about every book, and website has them as Designers, Artists, etc. How is that not creative? Heck, most think Paul McCartney is ISFP - I think he's creative.

    What makes you say that? They're fairly easy to discern. Most of the ENFP women around me tend to be hippie militant liberal types however.

    The definition of creativity is the ability to create.

    N has creative ideas, S has creative applications. S is better at troubleshooting, while the N is better at imagining.

    So the N has more intention to be creative because of a desire to look at things in an innovative way (from their own perspective, since type is largely ego-based), the S can also innovate, but they aren't normally on the look for anything new, it mostly happens through discovery.

    Keep in mind, too, that an N's ideas may not necessarily be original to the world at large, but the N's idea is probably original from his/her point of view.
