    Wait a second. I know some NP's who are putterers too. I also know some directive STPs. Is it really Se that causes that?

    I didn't say it was exclusively Se.

    I was thinking in terms of ISFJ vs ISFP (the two types you were considering) and what was likely responsible for behavior within those two types.

    EDIT: For one, the external function is open-ended, and for the other, it aims for closure.

    What's funny is that if you get ISFJs and ISFPs in the right context, you can smack into the judgment Fi function for ISFPs (where they'll dig in) and the Si open perceptive function for ISFJ (usually where they just enjoy being with familiar people or in familiar surroundings).

To trace the remote in the immediate; the eternal in the ephemeral; the past in the present; the infinite in the finite; these are to me the springs of delight and beauty.” ~ H.P. Lovecraft

    Wait...did this "official" report measure functions or just the four dichotomies? Because in job-related things they tend to measure the four dichotomies because they just want to stick you somewhere.

    Well, now I'm truly curious. What other functions might produce puttering?

    I'll be honest, if I'm buying into functions fully, I question if this is really possible. what I mean is, how much bending of a particular function can you really do before it starts becoming a different function in use?

    There was no mention of functions.

    It isn't function bending. I thought the same thing as well when I almost gave up on function theory. It is not bending functions to suit particular needs, because the motives and world views really are different...it can just LOOK the same on the surface, if it's not being examined

    Any type can be rigid or bendy about SOMETHING.

    It looks like a four dichotomy test, which I do not trust. I believe sincerely that businesses use four dichotomy tests because it is a simplistic Te way to compartmentalize people into categories which determine behavior rather than function.

    The problem with that of course being that asking someone if they're scheduled, organized, make lists, or if they're messy is a really shallow and in in my opinion incorrect way to type people.

    You really do seem ISFJ to me as well, you seem to be Fe, for what it's worth.

    FUCK Fe! Seriously.

    It serves everyone but me.

    I wish I could get rid of it but before I can even think and override it it kicks in.
