36/40 here. I made it past 30 though. Seems us lifers live longer than the people around us for some reason. If you stay that high on the scale I wouldn't expect to keel over anytime to soon

I would expect the lifers that make it past 30 to have a pretty good chance of survival. After all, staying active is good for your body.

I do not need a test to know I am a thrill seeker. In the reality though I find it interesting that with Ne and Se in tow one can really be a thrill seeker but understand the rules of reality. I am in my mid thirties and I plan on living a whole lot longer. Like Sir Richard Branson I plan on living a long, long life of thrill and forward moving conquests.

Odd, it seems to favor aggression and "fire", not actual exploratory and experimental behavior.
Also, water related?! Do not want.

First off, I'm an INTP so maybe I'm barging in...buuut I'm very adventurous, which seems to be highly unusual among my type. Thoughts?

22. A. I would like to meet some people who are homosexual (men or women)
22. B. I stay away from anyone I suspect of being gay or lesbian

Lololollol! KEEP ME AWAY FROM THOSE FREAKS! :laughing:

How is that being a thrill-seeker?!? There have always gay accountants dammit, even in 1971. Not exciting.

Give up that I, come join us, you know you want to!

ETA: Being socially withdrawn, or anxious doesn't equate to introversion. Check out Jung cognitive functions, see how you access Ne v Ti.

So, the sudden realization I have the lowest score here.
Just because I hate swimming!
Dark Romantic scored lower as he hates jumping as well as swimming.

You are the black-spots on the ENTP image :sad:
