# Thread: ETB's Ultimate Lucky Eight Archetype test!

Here's another one we just have to sort out the types of each perceived role:

1 INxJ
2 IxTP
3 ENxJ
4 IxTP
5 IxTP
6 IxFJ
7 ISxP
8 INxJ

1, 6 and 8 are in place for professed INFJ; 2, 4 and 5 in place for former INTP profession. 3 is also NJ, while 7 has primary Se/Ni as well.
Well, it looks like Ni edges out Ne (which is perceived as very low in the shadow, though it should be Opposing for the INJ).

However, to look at it on another angle, you have 3 IxTP, and one ISxP, which would be a possible 4 for ISTP. Could Ni be an inflated "relief" function, instead of Se, which would be the "supporting"? You have always seemed more of a Thinker, though I guess you do seem more abstract. But the third function is said to inflate itself, leading to confusion between INFJ and IxTP. That could make the N seem more preferred, perhaps even more than some N types. Should have remembered to point this out this yesterday as well.
I think it had more to do with the wording of the questions than the order of my functions.

The order I put on this test was:
Ni, Ti, Se, Fe, Te, Fi, Ne, Si

But I don't actually think that's my order of function usage. I would put that order as:
Ni, Ti, Fe, Se, Ne, Fi, Te, Si

I knew ISTP was a possible result based on the answers I gave. I've actually considered that as my type. But I know for sure I'm an Ni dominant, not a Ti dominant. Also I definitely use Fe more than Se. I was just trying to answer the questions as well as I could, because I want you to have good data on your test.

I think the wording should be changed around a bit.

2. The point here is, I believe that the roles might be ultimately more determinative of true type than simply usage. Usage can vary, and be motivated by a number of factors. Usage does not actually equate to preference, which is the real basis of type. An analogy I use, is that you can prefer sweets, but force yourself to begin eating more yucky dietary stuff for health purposes. You're still predisposed to sweets.
It's basically the difference between behavior, which is superficial, and inborn disposition.

Se has always come about in spurts, never when I want it to. Most of my functions are the aristocracy, other than Si and Fe. Se is the town rat colony living among the domiciles.
All it means is that for some reason, you perceive more extraverted functions in ego-systonic places (i.e the first four, in this case, the parent, relief and aspirational, though aspiration is on the border of the shadow, and often negative as well), for whatever it's worth. Of course, you perceive an introverted function as lead, so that makes introversion most likely.
