    Indeed... I'll dig out the camera this evening or tomorrow morning and do the video challenge so. Text is always much harder to gauge personality from . It's the reason I like emoticons. They help to give a context to the words (ie whether you're joking or being super cereal).

    What is an "ideal surgeon"? How many perfectly adequate surgeons would you reject before finding an ideal? The ideal might change depending upon the surgery. Here, the best is the enemy of the good. I would look for (and have done so) a surgeon with a good track record of success in the surgery I was to have. Is this your ideal? If so, then we agree.

    MBTI was NOT created to box people into career choices based upon type, or to identify ideal careers for any type. It was based on the premise that certain types tended to be happier and more successful doing certain jobs, not that this was a necessary absolute. It is a guideline to help people understand themselves, not a perfect list of correspondences.
    I didn't say it was any of that. I said it was formed to help people make career choices. So you're still tracking a notion I dismissed and didn't hold to begin with.

This certainly can help someone identify a job matching their type. If someone is interested in a job atypical for their type, though, it can highlight what the major sources of dissatisfaction might be, not to dissuade them from the job, but to show them how to approach it in a way more suited to their interests and talents. It is often the typological "odd man out" who is able to break group-think in an organization, and bring added dimensions of creativity and perspective.
    The MBTI is making career suggestions, obviously, not dictating career choices.

    Asking about what is ideal in a person or a job is like asking what is "normal." We can say all kinds of things about what is abnormal. But what is normal or ideal is interpreted relatively to other people or jobs. So given a choice of surgeons, I will look for the one with the best track record, the most experience, relative to the group. To know who is the ESFP in the group is another question. But as a group thus far, I haven't known any who I would want as a surgeon in general. I have known one who I would want as my chef. But she can't drive a car, so I obviously wouldn't want her as my chauffeur. And there's probably a good reason why someone, an ESFP who is in her 40s, still refuses to learn how to drive, although she is intelligent enough. It doesn't take much intelligence to get a license and drive a car, as millions of people have demonstrated. But it does take a certain amount of ambition and courage the first time out. Imagine if you're an aspiring surgeon, facing your very first patient on the operating table whose life or at least future comfort is in your hands. Driving a car is nothing compared to that.

    There is at least a hint of INTP (a certain criticality and independence) but that shows through with many types. INTPs can be quietly gregarious, but Oeufa doesn't give off that kind of vibe.

    I didn't mean anything like "chameleon," just that I could learn the same trick. That would take more time to learn than a true chameleon personality would require.

    If I had to guess, I'd say you're acting nervous and frustrated here, while hiding it behind a flustered flurry of emoticons.

    That's a bit of a leap, considering you don't know how I interact with others in real life.

    Well sure. I had to adopt a different persona for debating, but I consider that a type of chameleon-ing

    Why would I be nervous?

    @Mal+ you are not going to argue her into believing she is NFP. You made your point and now it is only arguing for the sake of arguing.

    @Oeufa they do have a point in that you come across as Fi in this thread. But that doesn't necessarily mean much. A video would be a great idea.

    Ok, but I didn't say Fi and I don't want to type others through JCF. The MBTI works just fine for me.

    Do I really? How so? Perhaps I'm not recognising it properly

    It's more accurate with functions than it is by 16 profiles, IMO.

    It's more accurate for finding your cognitive function preferences. But when interpreting those in terms of the
    MBTI's four-letter system, you're forced to make certain assumptions. The biggest assumption is that your function order determines P or J.
