Ah... to misguide to make people think twice and truly analyse. Thus the ISFJ.
Or maybe I made the change just or in jest.
Did you not once believe I was an xNFP?
What made you change your mind?
My enneagram type is a genuine mystery.
You could help me type that .
I was just pointing out that you may just have scrambled your functions- and, not really on the NFP, that was the "type the above member" thread. I can't really tell. No clue on your enneagram. What do you think? If I had to take a big blind wack then I would guess 7 because I see a more fun and upbeat personality than your regular NT 5's and 6's around here.

So.. you can ban him from publicly questioning his type again right? (It's making those of us with genuine typing difficulties look bad )
Ha. Yes. He gives the perpetually wishy-washy a bad name!
For the EP, if there is something interesting to respond to, it has to be responded to.... it really is almost impossible just to let go and not say anything at all back, ime.
Maybe that's a way we can determine between EP and IP?
I noticed that with @Oberon -- we were close friends IRL, and I seemed very capable and even inclined to just withdraw and stop talking when I decided the conversation wouldn't improve, whereas he couldn't seem to ever stop regardless. If it was there, he had to poke at it.

“Pleasure to me is wonder—the unexplored, the unexpected, the thing that is hidden and the changeless thing that lurks behind superficial mutability. To trace the remote in the immediate; the eternal in the ephemeral; the past in the present; the infinite in the finite; these are to me the springs of delight and beauty.” ~ H.P. Lovecraft
I think this thread is best used when you offer a new perspective to people you consider your friends...this way the message is usually more flattering (''oh he remembered me, I must be somehow important to him '') than insulting (''holy crap, after all this time she still couldn't figure her own type'' )
A man builds. A parasite asks 'Where is my share?'
A man creates. A parasite says, 'What will the neighbors think?'
A man invents. A parasite says, 'Watch out, or you might tread on the toes of God... '
All 4's don't necessarily have to be the "f*** the world" variety.
No one said a 4 is at that extreme either. I said to look at other 4w5s precisely because most around these parts are not "woe is me" emo drama queens.
But the type is certainly not defined by a bubbly, upbeat attitude either, whether average or healthy. The healthy 4 is gracious and empathetic, sure, but still a far cry from an effervescent, hyper-positive demeanor. With a 5 wing, that is especially ludicrous. The 5 wing makes the 4 distant.
If people within types can very soooo much that they defy the very definitions of their supposed type, then what is the point of types & defining them to begin with?
That is rhetorical, BTW. And this post is not about anyone's type, but just pointing out that the "everyone is different" argument is ludicrous when talking about types. Types are about classifying people according to shared, defining personality traits.
