    Default SJ or SP?

    Based on the choices and synopses given, could you give this description a type?
    Active << Passive
    Lacks energy, fairly apathetic and passive, preferring sluggishness to movement, and leniency to initiative. The greater the ratio, the more exaggerated the tendency to laziness will be.

    Emotional >> Unemotional
    An interest in any activity or theme is never lukewarm; will always commit passionately. Has the ability to engage in any sort of task, as long as the material is varied and diverse, a source of novelty and distraction. If the ratio of distraction is too large, there may be a disturbance by emotions.

    Extroverted >> Introverted
    Feels, thinks, and acts as a function of objective circumstances. Only the outer world counts and the awareness is entirely focused on it. Rarely moody or preoccupied and may sometimes be wary of subjectivity.

    Primary = Secondary
    Reactions to various stimuli are neither too phlegmatic nor too reactive. There is an inner balance, which allows time to reflect when necessary, but can also react promptly when circumstances require it.

    Narrow minded << Open minded
    It is sometimes difficult to focus concentration on a single subject, however is extremely open and always tries to learn and integrate new information and new ideas. There is a focus on being cross-disciplined oriented than specialist and centers of interest are fairly widespread and varied.

    Egocentric << Sociable
    Objectivity in perception and behavior could in the best of cases lead to generosity and altruism.

    Independent << Cooperative
    A marked ability to adapt to others, to adopt prevailing attitudes and integrate into groups. Quite community-minded with a true sense of team spirit. Gives the best of self when working in unison with a group. Cooperation is the forte.

    Authoritative << Submissive
    Has a tendency to yield, follow, put up with situations and follow other people's orders. Modest and unassuming with a need for protection. A tendency to be dependent.

    Self-confident << Insecure
    Sometimes doubts self and skills. The lack of self-confidence makes for a fairly shy and self-effacing person. Feelings of inferiority may interfere with the ability to take action or on the contrary, may propel them into action if there is a possibility of reward or compensation.

    Optimistic << Pessimistic
    Often in a negative frame of mind that is undermined by fears and craving for security. Cannot always see the sunny side of life.

    Abstract << Concrete
    Chiefly interested in tangible facts and realistic details. A pragmatic personality that never loses sight of the utilitarian or practical aspects of things.

    Methodical >> Spontaneous
    Approach to life is usually methodical and disciplined; plans out projects and organizes the schedule to yield maximum efficiency and effectiveness.
    Rational >> Intuitive
    Thought processes are usually clear, orderly, and linear; reasoning obeys the dictates of deductive or discursive logic, and relates to explicit goals.

    Analytic >> Synthetic
    The mind is especially perceptive of details. To arrive at a global perception, a vision of the whole, proceeds gradually piece by piece, aspect after aspect, in a fairly linear fashion.

    Organized >> Chaotic
    Inclined to arrange, classify, sort, catalogue, and compartmentalize, in all life activities as well as work.

    Disciplined << Capricious
    Behavior usually obeys momentary whims and allows the self to be inspired by imagination or whatever situation arises. Openness and spontaneity gives scope to be skillful, ingenious, or shrewd, rising to whatever the immediate circumstances require.

    Constant = Changeable
    May feel a need for regularity and continuity in lifestyle, but may sometimes abandon a project or enterprise when boredom sets in, to turn to a more exciting experience.

    It sounds SP-ish, but there are some weird SJ-ish traits regarding security, methodical behavior, and pessimism thrown in that don't seem to fit. I can't tell anything from this. It's too mixed up.

    Good point, which is usually how personalities are. No one is a pure type. Usually their environment and the fact that, as discussed in another thread, no one can live up to the healthy side of a type at all times creates enigmatic personalities that cannot be pigeonholed.

    Interesting. I think there seems to be enough there to show that Ti is stong (i.e. analytical and the organization seems internal).

    I'd argue ISFP.

    Again, Analytic is greater than Synthetic - The mind is especially perceptive of details. To arrive at a global perception, a vision of the whole, proceeds gradually piece by piece, aspect after aspect, in a fairly linear fashion; and the Organized being greater than Chaotic seems to be internal, "Inclined to arrange, classify, sort, catalogue, and compartmentalize, in all life activities as well as work". That to me indicates that Ti is prevalent.
