    I still don't think that there's a strong enough correlation between interests/career and type to say I'm INFP over INTP based on my hobbies. I'd actually be inclined to lean toward ISTP if that were the case, but it's not.
    Nevertheless, your counselor was on the right track. Unfortunately, she can't state what type she thinks you really are without testing. When I was in college it was a free test. Oh well. To me it's not worth a $132 test to find your type, because it's obviously INFP.

    By the way, I don't take anybody seriously who states that using smilies is any signal concerning type.

    Smileys are an excellent way to determine type .

    I agree - not about ISTP, but about hobbies, interests, and even careers. Any type can succeed at any career and derive enjoyment from any hobby or interest. The type differences will be seen primarily in their motivations for doing so, and exactly what they feel they get out of it.

    If you say so
    I've never seen such an INTP post in my life. Seriously. Not.

    If not INFP, then you should consider ENFP. This isn't rocket science.

    You're just jelly cause I'm more INTP than you

    No, really, I did take your suggestion on board and I've been reading through some INFP profiles for the last few minutes. I don't agree with much of the description at all. While there is some that fits, I think there are aspects of all types that can be applicable to anyone else. Typology isn't an exact science.

    If INFP is so not-right, then ENFP is the next logical choice. Over the course of this thread you've come across as more extroverted. The ENFP is, in reality, rather ambiverted, somewhere between introvert and extrovert. This factor makes the typing process more difficult.

    I don't want an ESFP doing any major surgery on me. Not now, not ever.

    I do have strong Ne (whimsy ftw!) but ENFP? Doubt it.

    They're often quite dexterous - I have two ESFP friends who have very good hands. That would make them ideal surgeons, no?

    "I've been reading through some INFP profiles for the last few minutes." I forgot to ask: What INFP profiles? Do you mean type-descriptions?

    I don't see what Ne has to do with whimsy, unless you're talking about free-association or a kind of randomness of speech and behavior.

    If I wanted a hand-job, yes, just not surgery. But since you're talking about an "ideal" surgeon, I wouldn't want to be operated on by someone who is less than the ideal surgeon. Would you? Of course certain types are ideal for certain careers, in general. The MBTI was created based upon that very scenario. So when someone comes along and says that any type can belong to any career, that defeats the purpose of someone using the MBTI to make the ideal career choice. Because it's not the point to say that an ENFJ can be a program developer. We all know that reality doesn't always conform with theory. But reality isn't the ideal, where the ideal exists only in the mind.
