    Thanks.

    Back to your original purpose. My hunch is your friend is an ISTP. And I have one supporting reason I would like to add:

    I think it is easier to learn to be responsible than learning to enjoy risky hobbies (surfing, scuba diving) and SJs seem like a risk adverse group.

    Although I could be 100% wrong. Feel free to rip my post apart.

    The reason I consider myself the eldest sibling is I have a younger brother and by the time we were cogniscent of the world, my older brother was married, had his own house and was essentially out of the picture.
    I think that is definitely how it plays out -- you took the role of elder to your younger brother.

    The rule of thumb is that that distances larger than 5 years generally negate the effect and the sequence starts over.

    No, that's a good point to consider. I think it's true, and childhood is usually a time where children are pushed towards more responsibility anyway, not more risk.

    (I have noticed a wicked streak in ISFJ women, though, where sometimes they really enjoy doing more "wild" things... fast driving, jet-skiing, gun-shooting, and other things that involve tangible proficiencies. So they're not really doing it for the risk, per se, but it looks a little like it.)

    Well, I saw this friend today and subjected her to two type tests and the cognitive functions test.

    And guess what? She came out clearly ISTJ on both tests, and the sometimes skewy cognitive functions test also pointed out a very clear ISTJ.

    Guess I typed wrong. ^^

    Oh well, a good typing experience nonetheless!

    Interesting point Jenn. I was the middle of two three boys, however was expected to be the surrogate parent. I think that I was quite dutiful growing up.

    Something else that I have determined is that some of the test questions on assessments seems flawed and I know that I have an arduous time responding, in particular to questions that in my opinion describes sensing, however the responses result in J or questions that pertaining to intuiton but resulting in P.

    I know that is the correct order, however for simple dichotomies it raises confusion. I think that the average SP likes consistency and knowing what the rules are, not to abide by them like SJ but knowing how far they can push the envelope.
