    Default ENTP or INTP

    I've always found myself struggling to answer which type I really am. There are examples where it might be described as either type I tend to always tell people when they're inaccurate but I enjoy going out and I get very energised from talking to people, especially if they cover my interests.

    Sorry, it was a joke. He quoted a single sentence and proclaimed you were an E from that (a very J tendency). So I quoted his sentence and proclaimed he was a J.

    We're not the same person. :p

    Certain friends of mine notably a ESTJ seem convinced that I am INTP, it is quite amusing when he only quotes passages from INTP descriptions.

    I like to check that I am right before I say someone's wrong because I've suffered severe embarrassment (and I still do on occasions) where they've come back with the actual facts. I like to be impartial and I understand that's an INTP trait.

    I identify with certain things in the I and the E because I do like to read (mainly on Wikipedia) before I commit to a debate but I love to discuss it as well.

    See now, I am seem to be both INFP and ENFP. Both of those descriptions describe me perfectly. I am not one of those more than the others.

    xNTP. It's OK to be borderline. It is what it is.
    NTJ's are the only types that have ever made me feel emo.
    ENP's are the only types that have ever made me feel like a sensor.
