    edit: it could really be just a matter of interest. i don't really want to take it too far and apply it all to type. for instance, i don't have much interest in dancing - so i suck at it. while you do.. in that sense, you're better "in the moment" than i am.
    oh..i see...yeah i'm more likely to be clumsy in sports than others probably yeah...haha

    I dont think sports are good way to type people. I was always very athletic, good in most sports, especially athetics and things like skating, ice-skating, skiing, tennis.. and was very active until 15 or something, whole day moving. But now I dont really like sports and I'm more N-ish towards the whole thing. I can easily see in soon future that I'll regain some of my need for sports. :/

    but OP does sound more ISFP

    If I were you I would also consider ESFP.
    Just a suggestion.

    I wouldn't say it's the best guideline, but being able to easily get in sync with sports and perform well is very much Se awareness, I think (depends on the demands or pace of the activity too). If someone can handle that, and not get too caught up in ennui or many past/future/contextual thoughts, then it's more likely one can do it elsewhere (socially, at work, etc).

    Despite that, it's still up for grabs what people's "preferences" are (i get caught up in things myself sometimes), but it's something to consider.

    Yes this really baffles me.

    Well this may sound weird, but I observed myself for a day, and I realized how active my Ne is.
    I mean, I'm in the moment more than some people-but my thoughts always race to crazy things-that could happen and jump back-to what is in front of me-and if I do this then what will happen-and would I be better to do-this?
    I may sound more down to earth on the internet, but thats because I have the backspace key.

    And I mean, cereally, what is with this chicken on the emoticons
    :chicken:

    I think I mistake my physical nature for Se sometimes too.


    Also if you notice my posts sound a bit different, I tend to put up a huge wall at first when I meet people that aren't as kind and open(And the interwebs aren't exactly kind) because I tend to be soft hearted.
