    You're MBTI limbo seems well founded though. You probably wouldn't want to settle with the INTX label would you?
    No, I really wouldn't. The Xs bother me because (to me) they signify either an underlying lack of self-understanding or a failure to understand type. I think my problem is the latter.

    But I see your point about how the desire to have things settled would lead kind of naturally to not wanting to rehash old decisions. So many people questions their type, though, regardless of whether they are P or J. As such, it is my hunch that type theory isn't something that many people can be absolutely sure about at all.

    And let me just take this opportunity to voice my total disappointment in Keirsey's Please Understand Me II. Seriously, it's nothing more than an incredibly repetitive and long version of the information already on the website. I thought there was at least going to be something new in there somewhere.

    The posts I have read remind me of slightly more (slightly) winded conclusions than the INTJs I talk to? >.> .. I'm no good with these things.
    Lol, did you mean slightly more long-winded?

    Yeah I think type theory is more satisfying to people with clear and strong I/E, N/S... preferences, it can get pretty fuzzy otherwise. And I probably wouldn't accept a X label either.
