    As I recall I've only been on an NT forum a couple times, once when I started a thread about ENTPs and was surprised at how polite they were. That's the most thanks I've ever received on a thread. ;) I mainly stick to the Myers-Briggs and Cognitive Functions forums.

    ETA: @Boolean11 , I don't have time to read all subforums and it's been a constant complaint that people are mistyping themselves, so I don't go into the Keirsey section to learn more about specific types in order to help type myself.

    I just thought I'd add that I've finally sorted out that my type is ENFP. To back up the theme in this thread, I just posted the following on a thread about intelligence:

    Depends what you're measuring. If judging entirely by IQ tests, people with the highest scores would be those who are good at logic, understand vocabulary well, are fast thinkers, and don't get flustered by tests, which can be any type. If judging overall intelligence, the ability to think logically and in depth, to be perceptive, and have an overall wisdom about life, which again can be any type.

    ISFP - The Artists

    First of all, I just read through this entire thread and found myself wanting to thank just about every post. Secondly, I apologize to the people who are going to be getting notifications for a post they made years ago!

    Even though you do identify yourself as an ENFP I found, like a lot of other people on this thread, that we have a lot in common, both in how we view the world and how the world views us. Particularly the strong Se and seriously seeming like a Thinker.

    So, just for curiosity's sake, what made you realize that you were a ENFP?

    It did surprise me when this thread bounced back up -- good thing I'd started watching Notifications. :D

    At times I've thought I might be T, since that's how I always test, and I've always seemed to use a T-type logic to make decisions. Fi is how I've always felt inside but it didn't make logical sense, so I kept bouncing back and forth between the two, trying to settle on my judging function. I had an insight a couple days ago that I use the most objective and biggest picture possible for making decisions, which can seem Ti but is actually Fi. Then I went back to MBTI descriptions and stopped going around in circles with Keirsey and cognitive functions, since neither were helping make my type clear. After reading dozens of MBTI books and articles over the last few years, I finally decided I'm ENFP since I fit the pattern and world view so well, other ExxP descriptions not so much overall.

    ISTP - The Mechanics


    My sister was a intelligent ESFP still is.... but studying didn't mesh with her social life so she gave it all up to be social because she felt her friendships were more important then going to university quite sad really.. she was far too focused on the present then her own future whenever i tried to discuss her future prospects with her she'd get mad or accuse me of judging her which made no sense whatsoever...

    That's kinda funny, one of the reasons I don't believe in the system is because I've always scored pretty high.

    Kinda says a lot about the character of the majority of those with "high IQ's"

    No matter how you look at it though, it's widely accepted that intelligence is expressed in countless ways that aren't measured in standard IQ measurements. One of the reasons I find it bogus is because I got a high score for answering a set of questions that all were measuring a narrow scope of intellect. Why would anyone put faith in such a high compliment when the thing measuring it is so deterministic? Ego, is the only thing I can come up with. Pretty sure if people weren't so 'proud' of their scores, IQ tests would completely be irrelevant.

    You've never been the victim of a superiority complex? But interesting post, I guess generalizations are truly difficult to form.
