    Logically speaking, I can be all types or no type at all. But I'm leaning toward INFP because I personally value sex.

    I'm not sure, the variance between extroversion and introversion is hard for me to differentiate.
    You're trying too hard. Why look at individual letters, such as E/I, when you can just use functions? Or are you saying that Ne-dom implies extroversion? Does an outward-pointing attitude lead to extroverted behavior?

    Theoretically, yes - Ne dominance implies extroversion. A study independent of the typological school of thought showed around 70% the population is ambiverted, and my perceptions correlate. I think anyone who gets hung up on this probably falls into this category. I prefer to think more about the function sets as a pair - Ne/Si over Se/Ni, Ti/Fe over Te/Fi, etc. Swapping the position of one for another in each set is hardly something to get all worked up about for such trivial implications, but I suppose if you've got your sights on mastering the system...

    As for the intricacies of extroversion/introversion, it all depends on who's theory you want to listen to when postulating. Some say a focus on the external world, even if it's a solitary habit of thought like mechanics or something, implies extroversion. Some say you have to be boisterous, traditionally extroverted to qualify. And so forth, I've probably thought up four differing conflicting criteria.

    You're probably ambiverted.

    Of course. Personal values mean you use Fi. Do you value anything else, or just sex? If not maybe you're a misanthropic INFP.

    Why not use an introversion/extroversion test?

    Hmm, maybe you're a sensor then. Sex and chocolate milk...do you ever combine the two? If so you're probably an SP.

    Lol, no. I prefer peanut butter on my chocolate. Or chocolate on my peanut butter. And hot romantic evenings.

    You value chocolate and sex. Therefore it follows that you are ESFJ. I think Keirsey said that once.

    I've pondered this a bit further. First you make the distinction between focus of attention and behavioral aspects (the traditional intepretation). Then there are four different conflicting criteria. Then you brought up ambiversion. I'm not able to put this whole thing together.

    And what is ambiversion anyway?
