    I grew up in S overload. That still didn't influence my preferences. They all have sensory skills and talents, but I do not take any interest in them and they certainly don't listen for more than 5 seconds to me about Myers Briggs or any of my other N interests. In fact they're all quite dismissive of my personality psychology interests. Not grounded in practical application enough.
    With dreamers, pure and simple, the imagination remains a vaguely sketched inner affair. It is not embodied in any aesthetic or practical invention. Reverie is the equivalent of weak desires. Dreamers are the aboulics of the creative imagination.

    They clearly didn't interpret it the way I did -- 90% of my MBTI interest is for the practical application.

    Clearly didn't influence my preferences either, as I'm still very clearly a sensor. Assuming your family are actually sensors -- which, considering your N bias as reflected in your mistyping of me, I highly doubt -- then you presumably developed an ability to speak S language and get along better with Sensors. Same thing happened with me, in reverse. Makes me more compatible with Ns than I might have been, had I been raised by S types.

    But they form a majority, don't they? You are the odd one, no need for them to adjust. In EJCC's case it was the other way around which makes for a much stronger motivator.

    lol "N interests"

    My best friend is an ISFP (she's actually a member here) and she's the one that actually showed me the Enneagram and taught me about it. On Skype we've had a lot of conceptual conversations with each other over the theories, the implications and analyses of shows we've watched, etc. What's practical isn't something that she really concerns herself with as much as what's interesting.

    On the flip side, I love watching football and basketball, playing mindless fighting games, etc. I'll even eat avocados because I know they're good for my skin. Does this mean I should switch to ESFP? Nope.

    I gotta say, between you and @EJCC, she has brought to this discussion (and countless others) detail of thought, implications of her findings, and critical analyses while you seem to just be applying a black and white formula to what you perceive. From your perspective, I'd say you're the one that has your 2nd letter mistyped. But I'm not going to, because I know it actually isn't that simple.

    Here you go:

    I will admit I have questioned @EJCC's type, but she seems to have a pretty good grasp on the theory and comes off as quite confident in her typing, so that's enough for me. If I didn't know her type and I were asked to guess, I'd probably say either ENFJ, ENTJ or ISxJ. As far as N types go, the two ENJs seem to me to be the most interested in practical, real-world applications of knowledge.

    i don't see why she can't be an ESTJ she's just an unusually introspective one.

    I never said she wasn't. I think she's ESTJ 100%. I only wish there were more ESTJs interested in typology.
