    oooh- I just thought of something that could distinguish between SP and NF!

    do you enjoy sci fi and fantasy books and tv shows and such?

    the only thing in that category that I've ever read was Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy- out of a completely narcissistic love for Zaphod!

    def. more of an N thing than an S thing I do beleive!

    Really? I grew up on fantasy books. Redwall books were my childhood. And then Oscar Scott Card's Ender's Game series.

    and you're the NF!

    yeah- I mostly read things like Tintin or Jhonen Vasquez comics or non-fiction or reality based fictionish stuff that I can't really classify well because I suck at that sort of thing! (ie- Graham Green books, The World According to Garp, the Corrections and etc)

    Hmm ...

    I'll bet that one of my cousins is an INxx. He loves fantasy books, Dungeons and Dragons :rolli: and has a masters degree in pscyhology. If he is in fact an INxx then there's no way I could be. Our personalities are completely different.

    Unless it's something very interesting I lack the concentration to read anything substantial.

    Many of my friends are Ns and love anything fantasy/sci fi ish! That's how I was once forced to watch every episode of Firefly ever made (and decided to spend the time ogling Adam Baldwin ) and the reason WHY I've seen the uncut versions of all of the LOTR movies!

    My S friends generally prefer movies like Snatch, Full Metal Jacket or When Harry Met Sally and such...

    that's why I thought that might be a good question to ask!

    I love snatch, errr ...

    If I had a dollar for everytime I said: "Never underestimate the predictability of stupidity" i'd probably have about $30.

    It's really hard to type someone based on the movies they watch or the books they read.
    I know there are plenty of NFs into stuff like that.
    Lots of NFs that love Tarantino, for instance.

    The thing is, two people can watch the same movie, both say they loved it, but have been paying attention to completely different things.

    That I could see. Whereas an NF might appreciate the protagonists triumph and poetic justice, an SP might appreciate the adventure ...
