They'd be embarrassed to share most of their visions and will not untill they are really comfortable in the discourse, untill then they will just have to fall back on the Te which is significalty less flexible than the INTPs secondary Ne.
    Your just going to have to trust me that I'm not kept out. Me and this guy have known each other for quite a few years now and considering he'll discuss home life stuff with me (tentatively as it may be, we're still two young(ish) males after all and machismo must be upheld) I think I'm one of the closer ones to him. He even asked me for help on occasion!!! Help indeed!! Mind you when he does phone for help I do get the impression of a very pained expression on the other end of the line

    Anyhow basically the argument, one of many "discussions" (last wekk we covered existentialism for some bizarre reason), was that he'd analysed the system and had pointed to the flaw. His analysis was correct but as I pointed out to him the facet of what he'd identified as the error was wrong. I merely pointed to the inconsistency and once he understood what I mean't he adopted it into his thinking, so yeah they aren't stick in the muds. However it was the process not the outcome. He repeated the same line, no new identification to try and elulde criticism/ show the other facets, just the same lines over and over. That's quite J.

    To underline the point, try persuading an ENTJ that one of their personal choices is wrong and see how far you get. If they picked a car out and are knowledgable about cars, try telling them they got the wrong one. You'll fail. Mainly because they didn't get the wrong one for them. That's stability of thought.

    Hmm kinda makes sense now why my sister always got more and more stubborn the more you threatened/ punished her. Oh for having these insights like twenty or more years ago

INTJs are willing to change their habits if they are convinced that doing so is more effective/expedient than the way they have been doing things.
    Errm inflexible in habits? You mean doesn't like the comfort zone to be messed with or something else? I would have thought that both would be fairly pissy should you throw their favourite chair out or something but I'd guess that neither would be particulaly perturbed were you to suggest that they peel with the knife cutting away from their rather vunerable belly.

I could learn a lot from my 4yr old who is who he is and he doesn't give a shit what others think.
    Oh that kinda takes me back.

I would also suspect that you are more P than J - but having a kid and managing households tends to force one to be more J, and the driving expectation to be that J can mold your perceptions too.

    (The need for acceptance comes from the FJ measurements, however... so if the F is strong, you may not need the J to feel the need to be accepted.)

    Interesting.... THANKS!

    My husband tested ENTP, and he's much more secure in himself... neither one of us wants to be the 'J' but well someone must default there

    FJ Measurements? Could you explain that a little more for me?

    well since Alaska could be considered as being close to me then they should swing down....

    Of course the supplies were left by the door, and the kitchen table and the top of the stairs and there was even some left in the car when they got to the airport......


    Silly enough since I have started accepting that I really am an enfp I have been way less stressed BUT I seem to be forgetting and misplacing more items than usual..... Also being married to an entp who also seems to be equally forgetful I have decided that he needs to learn how to step up to the plate. Life has been rather chaotic in our house. *giggles*

    I'm pretty sure my youngest is a J....... this is gonna get interesting soon!

    Sure, be happy to (As an aside, this indicates F qualities - you'll note that almost none of the Ts will directly ask someone to explain something, just posing the question and expecting - or not - an answer)

    Well, there is this tendency in MBTI to assume that strength is simple - you are either T/F, and you are either J/P... and as a result, you are Fi/Fe/Te/Ti... but the reality is that there are measurements of strength to each trait.

    For example, if you test strongly F (which I believe you do, you project it quite strongly) but only slightly P, you still end up being ENFP... so that makes you Ne-Fi dominant. But the reality is that you may be a much stronger F than N, which the type doesn't always reflect. Likewise, the Fi traits that the description has may be half very accurate (F) but otherwise not as accurate (P).

    Why is this significant? There is a high risk that in taking the test more than once, you answered according to who you are (strong F, maybe others), but upon getting the answers (weak P), you decided you would rather 'not care' (for example), then patterned your responses towards being a strong P than would be otherwise true. It's very hard to avoid this... we build on own ego and self image...

    The reason I believe this is possible is because... well... I read your posts! A lot of traits indicate a weaker P-J divide (which, FWIW, is healthy...). The real risk is viewing your P-J as the culprit, when it is more likely to be the more dominant F (which, also, FWIW, is quite a bit better than being a dominant T!). Knowing one disadvantage of who you are allows you cope with it - pushing type traits isn't nearly as helpful.

    Why would you confuse yourself with an ENFJ? Ne-Fi can put on the image of an Fe. Much like for an INFJ, NI/Fe can put on an image of an Fi.

    Why would you think you're an ESFP. Like take meshou for example who says that her Ti ranks high, even though I think she is an INFP. I, an INTP, have my Fi rank also high, just as high as the Ne. Thats an illusion though, its just our primary introverted judgment functions acting out and Ti projects an Fi image and for the INFP vice versa. Your Ne projects the Se image.

    I suggest you take a look at the breakdown from the Step II MBTI handbook and evaluate your stance on this. The concept of dominant functions are a blend of three traits, of which two are the same for INTxs. The determining factor is the J/P divide, in which 'flexible' is an active keyword for P. The only other trait, in which you can narrowly define flexible as being 'open', is in the N/S divide. Both INTxs are intuitives, except one is actively inflexible (this is what determines their Ni trait, rather than the Ne observer).

    The belief that Ni-Te is "open" while Ti-Ne is "closed", relative to each other, is not borne out by theory or experience. Ni is not the same as Ne and traits from one cannot be claimed by the other.

    (I'll also emphasize that the critical nature of T can also influence subjective views on flexibility, as strong Ts will appear more... acidic... in their expression of their views.)

    I doubt the INTJ will be showing you their Ni much unless you get to know them intimately.

    Not saying Ni-Te is open and Ti-Ne is closed. Just that Ni-Te is more open. N=Open-Mindendedness. Ni is more so because of Introversion (Introverted functions are stronger).
