Hey guys! This has been bugging me for... well, about 2 hours now . For a while now, and after doing god knows how many tests, I found that I wasn't able to tell whether or not I was an ENTJ or an ENTP, since both are pretty good, but not quite exact descriptions of my own personal style. Recently, I've pretty much figured out my whole P/J divide: I prefer to observe all possibilities whenever I can afford to, but when push comes to shove and the situation calls for it, I'd tend to find making quick decisions pretty easy. Since I preferred the one style, it seemed fairly obvious that I was Perceiving more than Judging, so that cleared that little question up quite nicely .
Now, just on a whim earlier, I decided to check out some ENFP descriptions, which, surprisingly sounded almost exactly like me, down to the letter: the only difference is that I tend to like debates, seeing them as an opportunity to test my own beliefs and principles (something which is typically ENTP), and I'm not overly concerned with being in line with traditional morality (good vs evil); however, I subscribe to my own, shall we say, alternative moral principles quite closely. I also prefer to experience the world emotionally rather than fully logically, though I would much rather use rational judgment to make decisions and make sense of the world. On top of that, I have that trademark ENFP flair for the dramatic, a passionate love of life, strangely magnetic personality, and an uncanny ability to read and understand people a lot better than most of them realize from spending short amounts of time with them. However, this doesn't translate into actually caring much about people; I really like using this talent for my own benefit, which doesn't sound very ENFP at all; however, it is still in line with my own moral principles, just not with traditional ones. However, this doesn't mean that I don't like people or take an interest in anyone; it just means that I don't get overly attached to them in the long run. Also, I tend to lean towards cynicism in my assessment of people, but I always try remain optimistic, but grounded in reality whenever making a decision about the future; in other words, I'm idealistic, but not naive.
I'm rambling a bit, but basically, everything I've read about ENFPs sounds exactly like me, minus the whole altruistic, "goodwill towards all" schtick; I still think that this is an overly narrow way of perceiving it, but I wanted to hear some more opinions. I am always driven by a search for higher meaning, but I've heard that this is also common in ENTPs as well. I also fit quite well as an ENTP, but the ENTP traits don't resonate as deeply as the ENFP ones do. What do you guys think?
