    Default Am I ENTJ, ENTP, or ESTP?

    When I take those standard MBTI tests that judge your score by letters (E vs I, etc), I nearly ALWAYS get ENTJ.

    However when I take the cognitive functions tests, I always seem to get ESTP.

    But when I read the description and think about it holistically, I identify most with the ENTP description.

    Who am I?

    When you take the function test, are your Ne and Se close together? What function has the lowest score?

    When you read the descriptions, what is it about the ENTP profile that you particularly identify with?

    I used to test as an ENTJ rather frequently, and still tend to test as an ENTP on simple tests, but my cognitive functions test is ordered (Se, Ne, Ti...) and I identify more with the ESTP personality type, so that's what I've gone with

    the three types are easy to confuse

    (and I know other STPs who have screwed up test results as well, so I'm not the only weirdo!)

    Yeah, they're pretty close. FE is lowest, followed by FI.

    Which makes no sense for either of the two types. Or ENTJ. I thought I'd score higher on the Fe & Fi than that, but I don't, and I've tried it 3 different times.

    Gawwwd, all of them are somewhat applicable to me when I'm under stress. I don't get stressed out often, but when I do, it's a SPAZZFEST.

    However, what with the reclusiveness, impatience, and hypochondria when in spazzmode, I indeed seem to be ENTP. But this is by my own holistic self-evaluation though...

    Oh yeah, here's my cognitive function results. The thing tells me I'm an ESTP, but that's the last thing I'd consider myself. What do you think these results would point to?

    All three.
    - look at the questions deciding between J/P and identify the situations/traits that count towards J-ness. Most of those tests decide J vs P on time management. I know more people who are absolutely J in their time management, but in nothing else.
    - look at the questions which decide Se vs Ne... the same applies here.
    - the differences between these tests and descriptions can refine your understanding of yourself, rather than make it vague.
    Got questions? Ask an ENTP!

    What do you feel most stimulated and energised by:

    A) Exploring new possibilites, originating new ideas and considering issues based on the present physical world from many different angles
    B) Experiencing the external physical world in the present moment with your five basic senses
    C) Organising, planning and structuring using logic directed to the external environment

    A = ENxP, B = ESxP, C = ExTJ

    As soon as I saw your username I felt the urge to scream "ENTP!!"

    In cognitive processes tests I come out as Fe dominant and the rest of my function are all over the place. The best thing to do it just read the descriptions of the fuctions and see which one fits best for you. I've done this and I realised that Ni was in fact my dominant function and that the tests were wrong.
    And you say you indentify most with ENTP. Well you are the best judge of your own type so just go with that
    "Dad I can't feel my legs."
