    Seriously, I really do think xNTP fits though.

    The insights you gain on your own are worth much more than money. Remember that MBTI is about preferences, not traits. You know your preferences better than anyone else could.
    Quite so. Thanks.

    I went on a kind of date with an ENTP guy who lives in South Carolina last night, and he typed me as INTX, so it's probably what I am. I agreed with his reasoning.

    Well when I first came on the site, I had decided I was an atypical INTP, in that I am into mysticism and have made a big effort to develop my functions more than most. I set about explaining it, and my theories as to why. The response I got: "OMG you are not INTP, you are obviously INFP or possibly INFJ." People argued with me relentlessly that I was not what I thought I was, so because I am concerned with the truth and objectivity, I decided to investigate the possibility that I was just looking at things from a biased perspective and they might be right. So I researched types obsessively and found myself in several, and kept finding things which contradicted each other. Finally, I kept getting consistent test results and things kept pointing me in this direction, so I just decided it was probably right.

    Lesson learned: don't try to convince INTP's something which is outside of their Ti framework.

    On the bright side, I learned a lot about typology, and I understand Fi better now.

    Probably. I actually know enough about astrology I could probably charge for it, but I'd feel kind of bad doing it. I'd have to charge a discounted rate just because I feel like they could find the information on their own.

    I read Dario Nardi and realized I am the Fi dom (IxFP) but am quicker to action and less adept at deep listening than the INFP; the ISFP is quicker to do and shorter to listen.

    I'd pay someone in person to confirm that, I guess. Probably that person would be Dario Nardi, though, not MBTI, cuz they'd probably just say INFP again.

    It's funny because in Keirsey I also relate more to the Artisan temperament. As a child, I was always singing and dancing, choreographing things with my friends, making tapes singing, decorating, loved art class, went into talent shows...I completely comprise the Artisan child and young adult, but simply have the humanitarian impulse of the Jungian Fi dom, which most people confuse for being "NF" and I actually blame Keirsey for this, ironically.

    On a deeper read, though, I'm not human resources, I'm entertainment and hands on maintenance. It's what I do.
    That's unfortunate. The person obviously didn't really know what they were doing, if they didn't understand the difference between N and S. I consider myself adequate at identifying sensors, and I have no "hate" or criticism for them; several of my best friends are sensors. And you do seem ISFP to me. (Of course, all hipsters are ISFP. )

    I've also put a lot of effort into developing my other functions, which I expect throws people off.
    [Trump's] rhetoric is not an abuse of power. In the same way that it's also not against the law to do a backflip off of the roof of your house onto your concrete driveway. It's just mind-numbingly stupid and, to say the least, counterproductive. - Bush did 9-11


    This is not going to go the way you think....

    I think I'd like to get certified. Maybe I could make some money. Although I'd be a hypocrite if I charged more than what I thought was reasonable to pay...and my Ne sees so many possibilities it would be hard for me to make a decision. But I don't think typing decisions should be made quickly.

    If you're still kind of new at this stuff, it would probably be good for at least unveiling something you hadn't thought of before.


    I haven't taken anything that needs money, yet. I'm still very slightly thinking of taking the actual MBTI instrument even though at this point it's just out of a more ridiculous curiosity (and more of what it's like, than the actual result)

    From what I remember it's just like what you would find on the internet except longer and sometimes more extreme in the choices, so you feel even worse about picking one when you're not sure.

    I charge 30 bucks, because my insight is worth paying for.

    Have you ever had the value of your insight tested using the scientific method?

    There are better things to do with your money than to pay for psuedoscientific fluff that doesn't even engage you in any way.

    I listen to an astrologer in radio 2UE on Sunday night. This astrologer is highly skilled at manipulating the minds and feelings of vulnerable people.

    And in the prentense of providing information, the astrologer predicts the future. And of course the astrologer is well paid.

    It is unconscionable.
