    Just a thought.
    Hey man, I am new to the type thing in general. It's not my fault that I don't have the skills to be able to type myself (or others) accurately yet. I am glad to read more about it, though. There is a ton of material online, and it is hard to sift through everything. Do you have any recommendations?

    Thanks for the thread clean-up, and I do enjoy the title (although anyone who has read my posts in Sexuality or Relationships would have already known).

    Just took it. Here you go, analyze away:

    Cognitive Process Level of Development (Preference, Skill and Frequency of Use)
    extraverted Sensing (Se) ************************************* (37.5)
    excellent use
    introverted Sensing (Si) ********************************** (34.3)
    good use
    extraverted Intuiting (Ne) ******************** (20.3)
    limited use
    introverted Intuiting (Ni) ******************** (20.2)
    limited use
    extraverted Thinking (Te) ************************** (26.2)
    average use
    introverted Thinking (Ti) ********************** (22.1)
    limited use
    extraverted Feeling (Fe) ************************************** (38.3)
    excellent use
    introverted Feeling (Fi) ***************************************** (41.7)
    excellent use


    Summary Analysis of Profile
    By focusing on the strongest configuration of cognitive processes, your pattern of responses most closely matches individuals of this type: ESFP

    Lead (Dominant) Process
    Extraverted Sensing (Se): Immersing in the present context. Responding naturally to everything tangible you detect through your senses. Checking with what your gut instincts say. Testing limits and take risks for big rewards.

    Support (Auxilliary) Process
    Introverted Feeling (Fi): Staying true to who you really are. Paying close attention to your personal identity, values and beliefs. Checking with your conscience. Choosing behavior congruent with what is important to you.


    If these cognitive processes don't fit well then consider these types: ISFP, or ESFJ

    If these results are different from what you know of yourself, you might consider why your developmental pattern does not align with your expectation. You might also consider exploring this result as a possible better fit.

    Based on this we can say for sure you are an SF type, at least, but it is pretty close between them. That being said, you have tested strongly as an E in normal tests, and based on these results, ESFP seem somewhat more likely than ESFJ. As far as I can remember, your S tested as fairly weak in the normal MBTI tests. That is fairly common for SPs, many whom are mistyped as NPs. That might also indicate ESFP rather than ESFJ.

    The reason why I didn't think you were an ESFJ in the first place was your love for new music, which you wrote about somewhere, and which seemed kind of off to me based on you supposedly being ESFJ. Those kinds of statements are very ESFP though.

    Hmmm. New music, eh? I never would have thought that would be type-related. LOL On my Zune right now, the oldest music I have is Bach, and the newest is probably Vampire Weekend.

    Wasn't really meant like that (as in modern vs. old music). I was referring to your love of checking out music that is new to you, and a general openness to new listening experiences. If you have a very broad music taste that is also an indicator of being ESFP rather than ESFJ. My impressions of your music taste might be wrong though.

    My only criterion is good vs. bad. I am a particular fan of some genres (British indie rock stuff from the punk era to now, trip-hop, old-school hip-hop, jazz from the '50s and '60s). The bands I like the most are eclectics who try a lot of different styles (even within the span of a song), but still write classic pop songs that sound great in the car or through my headphones. I definitely have a critic's ear for things, though. You ought to see my Top 100 Pop/Rock Albums of All Time list.

    Well, that taste is more typical for an ESFP than an ESFJ, I would say. It's definitely broader than the average taste. If you were on Last.fm I could analyse your taste somewhat more, of course.

    What is typical ESFJ taste? Whatever is in the Top 10 Albums list at the end of the year?

    Well, I think one of the largest differences in music taste must be between Ps and Js, with Ps having broader tastes. Ss will probably have more mainstream taste than Ns. Introverts might like slow music better than extroverts.
