    Hehe. I guess we're probably going with ISFP, then. Is it normal for an ISFP to be unsentimental? Or maybe she isn't so unsentimental, she's just selective about how she shows it. (I'm anything but unsentimental, but I bet some people think I'm pretty hard-nosed...)

    I have certain things I am sentimental about but I don't think I am all that sentimental. You'd think a sentimental person would get homesick and that is something I never really experienced.

    Ok, I'm resurrecting this thread because my friend took one of the tests (not sure which one) and apparently she got INTJ. What the heck? I was like, uh oh...I really don't know her.

    However, she did say to me that for some of the questions, she picked qualities/answers that she admires, not necessarily ones that she finds in herself so much (and with some questions on some tests, it's easy to honestly answer them in that way.) I think her dad may be INTJ, or at least INTx. I wondered if she wanted to be more "rational" than she actually is.

    I still kind of think she could be IxTP. I have serious doubts as to her being an N. She tends to tease me for over-analyzing, etc. (I don't mind...she's right in so many cases!). It just doesn't seem very INTJ.

    I'm still leaning toward ISFP or ISTP. I have my doubts about INTJ despite her test results. I guess INTP is possible but I really doubt N as well. And ISFJ or ISTJ doesn't seem likely at all.

    intj and istp are pretty easily mistyped for each other, if that helps.

    Can you tell me why? It's a bit puzzling to me.

    I guess the Ni and to a lesser extent Se commonality, in theory. Also I believe both are chart-the-course interaction style which can make them look similar, especially on first impression. I was considering intj for a while when I figured out that intp was wrong for me. A very good friend of mine is INTJ and in some ways we're shockingly similar (sense of humour, general vibe, things like that) although in other ways we're shockingly different. The differences took longer to figure out than the similarities which were immediately obvious when we met and clicked hardcore.

    note: this effect seems to occur exclusively IRL, at least for me. I tend to have a lot in common with INTJs IRL and nothing at all in common with the ones on this forum, for whatever reason. I do not think it's a mistyping thing (at least IRL).

    Definitely FP: she could be either E or I: I tend to withdraw from people a lot, but I am usually energized by being in large groups, and my energy crashes when I'm by myself. Which would you say fits your friend more?

    Also, what are the conversations between the two of you like? Are you able to have an abstract discussion with her, without her just kinda nodding and agreeing to what you say? Does she like to bring up things that are going on around you? What are her plans for the future like?

    I'm personally leaning towards ENFP, but that's just a hunch.

    I thought she was an N at first, but after getting to know her better concluded she was probably S. I can find it hard to tell though. She teased me a bit once about my reponse to the question "would you like a stick of gum?". It was the fact that instead of saying "yes" or "no", I gave her my whole life's history in regard to my relationship with chewing gum. She thinks I over-analyze (not that it annoys her, I don't get that impression, more that she finds it amusing and slightly tedious.) On that basis alone I REALLY couldn't see her as something like INTJ.

    I told her recently about my parents having to sell my mom's old family home in Finland and we're all kind of upset about it. She was sympathetic, but also said something like "you have to move on in life." We are both half Scandinavian, and she (mostly jokingly) suggested having some sort of drunken blowout to get over the trauma.

    She's quite organised (successfully self-employed, etc - though I think for more minor things she is a bit ditzy/unorganized) and at the same time better at going with the flow than I am but lately she has been forced to do that too much (uncertainty with accommodation, work etc) and it's getting to her a bit - it would have got to me sooner though. Plans for the future: definitely not settling down with a hubby and a picket fence, not at this point anyway (she's almost 30). She is definitely quite capable of sticking with a program for a very decent length of time, but I think she always has at least vague plans or ideas for another adventure or a change of pace. She's told me that at least for now she's not keen on commitment or settling down.

    She's more observant in a sensory way than I am. Funny little details about a person and that kind of thing, the sort of thing that goes past me because I'm too much in my head. And she is a very talented artist. She describes herself as a loner; she doesn't come across that way as she is quite social and certainly very easy to get along with and fun. (While she also describes me as "easy going" I think she's realised by now that I get more wound up and anxious than she generally does.) But I think she gets her best energy from sitting down and painting for several hours, then getting out of the house and walking. (she told me something to that effect recently.)

    I'm still leaning towards ISxP (maybe ISFP but a T-like ISFP...?). I think her INTJ test result is likely to be related to some of the things she'd aspire to be more of. I just have a very hard time indeed seeing her as that type.

    Yeah, I'd have to agree. ISFP sounds about right.
