    I don't feel very ESTJ. And I have some metrosexual tendencies, but some dudely ones, too. And the strong, heart-on-the-sleeve emotionality, too.

If you had done something to hurt me or someone I care about (intentionally or through negligence), that would put me in a bad mood toward you for a while. I am fairly comfortable with conflict, though. I hate allowing things to linger and fester, so I would probably just confront you with my feelings and why exactly I was hurt.
    Well you have the F part covered.
    Your response reminds me of a closeworker I now consider a friend. He's an ENFJ. I'd have to be in actual interaction to give you my take on your N/S function, though.

    Huh... who would have thought there was shit worse than law school.

    Well I've learned something today.
    Listen to me, baby, you got to understand, you're old enough to learn the makings of a man.

    I think I am very sanguinely extroverted, but internally melancholic (sometimes). I listened to "The Tracks of My Tears" the other day, and I really relate to that feeling.

    If I were to rank my humors, it would be

    1. Sanguine
    2a. Melancholic
    2b. Choleric
    4. Phlegmatic

    And "supine" sounds like something I am not. I am outgoing, emotional, analytical, generally happy, but intense and given to bouts of depression/the blues.
    Well, I guess all that sounds like ESFJ.
    ENFJ I have determined to be a combination of Choleric and either Phlegmatic, or a new temperament called Supine. Phlegmatics in that area are very diplomatic, while Supines are more dependent, and Melancholies are independent.
    This is beyond me right here, but I would want to read more.
    Here's the idea in a list of tables and images. (Both the five temperament system, and how I believe it corresponds to type). There are also links if you want the complete discussions on it.

    I think I look better in pics like that when I am not smiling. LOL
    OK. Is that a male thing? (Since male F's are said to often want to put on a tougher image or whatever). I don't seem to know a lot of male Sanguines, so that further makes the stereotypical Sanguine "smiles and friendliness" seem more associated with females.

    I wasn't consciously thinking about my facial expression then. That is just how I looked in the bathroom that day. I try not to pose/smile/gesticulate much when taking pics I would use as an avatar.

    Do you see yourself perceiving more with a SiNe or NiSe combo? What is your understanding of these functions and how do you relate them to yourself?

    Being that you are Fe-dom, your aux and tert functions are both percieving, so it's not surprising you find confusion as to whether you are "S" or "N".

    From what I see in your posts, you display SiNe. You like to explore some external ideas & may delve into tangents in conversations (Ne), but internally you're focused on what you know (Si). The focus is to gather info to recall it later, which is where the idea of focusing on the "past" comes from regarding Si. Knowing stuff about people makes you feel closer to them, maybe because it's solid info to review later and keep you connected in their absence, or it helps you see how to meet their needs (?). In that sense, Si is supporting your Fe, which is the role your Pi function would play, a supporting one. Tertiary Ne may connect these ideas so that you can make predictions about people - your friend likes XYZ, so he may also like ABC, which you see a connection between. All of these functions working together make ESFJs seem thoughtful, kind and personally invested, because they seem to grasp people in a very detailed way that shows itself in small, everyday actions.

    NeSi likes info for the sake of info also, but very different kinds of info to be used in a different way.

    I really just like to learn. I can detect patterns within interpersonal relationships, but I am just as likely to find out things about someone just for the sake of knowing more. That makes me feel closer to others.
    Often a star was waiting for you to notice it. A wave rolled toward you out of the distant past, or as you walked under an open window, a violin yielded itself to your hearing. All this was mission. But could you accomplish it? (Rilke)

    Yeah, no idea.
