A problem is that I'm better at figuring out other people than myself.
E or I: I lean more towards E. More people tell me that I talk too much rather than that I talk too little. I often don't think before I speak. I'm the kind of guy who will make a joke or a comment which offends someone with an overly sensitive disposition. I'm comfortable with meeting people I've never met before and am pretty good at sizing people up. I love reading and writing which are typically solitary activities but I love talking about what I'm reading/writing. I can be quiet when I feel that it's in my best interest but when I'm being myself, I'm a big talker. However, if I'm in a social situation which bores me- I'm more eager to get out of it than to "find a way to make it more exciting because it probably wouldn't work anyway".
S or N: This dichotomy confuses me somewhat. I have many "iNtuitive" traits (comfortable with abstract topics, often thinks outside the box). However, I wonder if I'm just a "high-IQ" Sensor. As a Math major in my college, I can't really get interested in many of the more high-brow topics because there often isn't any real way to apply these concepts to reality. It's all theory. I understand it but I'm not thrilled by it. I'm more comfortable dealing with tangible and real things. Some of my clearly Intuitive friends struggle with the abstract topics on an intellectual level but they seem to enjoy dealing with abstract topics and eschew practical concerns completely. (Most of these people are or were humanities majors in college-also they are all NF's, so maybe NT's and NF's just deal with Intuition differently.) I don't trust my gut and will only do something if I think it's reasonable.
T or F: I have strong feelings (but who doesn't?). I understand that not everything I do is for rational or logical reasons. However, I feel most comfortable dealing with things logically and what boils my blood the most is seeing someone do something which is unreasonable AND which harms others. I often act on an image of being "overly polite", especially around people I have no desire to offend and have often been called the nice guy relative to some other guys who are definitely Feelers. I've thought about being an F but I think I'm a T. I tend to be very argumentative and often get too much into the spirit of an argument and forget about the feelings of the person I'm arguing with. I have a competitive streak. The whopping majority of my friends who I've introduced to typology think I'm a T. I'm very loyal to the people I care about and I think the worst thing someone can do to somebody is to lie to them. I take pride in my honesty.
J or P: I'm disorganized. I'm bored and irritated with routine. However, I'm an organized thinker. I don't always enjoy following the rules but I like knowing what the rules are. When doing something that is important to my future, I like having some kind of plan to rely on. I'm generally easygoing and adventurous. However, I am also fastidious about cleanliness. This is for practical reasons though because I catch colds and other viruses easily, so I take extra measures to avoid getting sick. I like being busy and often take on a lot of duties. I don't actively seek leadership positions but when I end up in one, I tend to be very organized and results-focused. I don't procrastinate. I don't want to screw up. I think I tend to be more of a J when dealing with other people but a P when dealing with myself.. if that makes any sense. I think, overall, I'm more of a P.
