Well I got mostly a lot of tests and it seems that they all have one unanimous decision regarding my personality...that I am an ENTP. I dont care with the E, N and P though as I know that those are very correct. The problem is regarding if I am a F or a T. All those questions regarding that asked wether I prefer logic or emotions - I chose logic because I always base my decisions in it. The problem was with questions like "Would you point out another person's mistakes?", I answered no because I dont want to point out other's mistakes and be hated by people. I dont want hatred around me because I find it disadvantageous in my behalf since I will be losing people I may find use in the future.

So am I really a Thinker or a Feeler????

You, my friend, are a Thinker. :wink:

:crazy::crazy:

Just kidding, I don't know you, I just thought that was "typical" of a thinker. Reminds me of my father who is also an ENTP. :tongue:

Are you subjective in your descion making.. or objective??

That is the ONLY difference between F and T...

Intellect and emotional intelligence have nothing to do with T and F..
BOTH T and F, are mental, Rational functions.
ALL people use their brains and have feelings .. ALL of us.. well ok, except for maybe a sociopath ;)

T and F are simply judging tools..
A T can be a very emotional person and none too bright.. likewise an F can be an Intellect and be somewhat cold..

Distilled to its simplest form.. T and F are this..

T uses OBJECTIVE criteria to make judgements
F uses SUBJECTIVE criteria to make judgements

That is it.. pretty simple eh??

While the T and F divide may seem very simple to begin, when applying it personally, it may be hard to sort through the differences. If you're really concerned about your type, I would implore you to explore functions - ENFPs use Fi as their supportive function, and ENTPs use Ti as their supportive function, which is where the F and T difference comes in. While Ti is based in definitions and inner systems, Fi is based on the inner value system, and what you personally believe is right and wrong and so forth.

Personally, you sound very much ENTP. Especially since you use logic in your decision making. Regardless of peoples types, I don't think most of us want to be hated, either.

NO IT'S NOT! Perhaps I over think this issue, but even objective criteria is subjective. Science has changed so much over the past 2000 years and we're still discovering new things that completely undermine past and present scientific beliefs.

I own Please Understand Me...I got it for $.75. :tongue:
I have a friend who believes that I'm an F over T because of Keirsy's compliance versus utility explanation. The funny thing is, she's a strong T and just as compliant as I am.

Thank you.. I am quite apt at not trusting anything..lol.. i certainly don't trust everything i read.. But books written by the people who helped developed the theory like Mr Keirsey will have a step up on others .. :)
I'm distrusting of most of the stuff David Keirsey says in general to be honest as I don't agree with a lot of it, however it's really whatever.

Try the Paragon Test (click on my signature) and find out your cognitive order. You may use Perception and Intuition as foremost cognitive modes.
