There are plenty of P types... in fact, most people I know are NFP or STP, but there are very few NTPs. I don't think I know any, honestly.
That's cuz England doesn't make them.

I'm from England! I reckon my home town is ESTP and where I live now is quite INFP. The country itself can seem a bit J and full of rules but you can let your hair down now and then. The world of work is quite J intensive though. At work I come off as quite the INTJ.

An INFP coming across as INTJ??? o.0

I know. Weird, huh? At work I have to make loads of lists to make sure I get all my stuff done and I have to work to all my deadlines, and I seem more like I'm making decisions based on thinking rather than feeling because I keep myself to myself quite a lot and focus on the job.
This is just what I've been told...not sure how it fits in properly with cognitive functions etc, it was just how someone typed me based on what they'd seen of me in "work mode".

*nods* INFP can be rational when they choose to be.

It isn't. I reckon sinistral's expoerience is not representative.....or perhaps my family represents the only British reservoir for Pness......my Mum is P (ENFP), my four siblings and I also (infp/istp/exfp/ME/enfp). All of us born in England (except Mum, she Welsh).


Come to think of it though, are we just "P" for Brits? If I moved to Vancouver, would people piss me off by being too laid back when I want to get something done? How much is our personality type related to those around us?

I swear England chops your Pness off when you enter the country. Was anyone bred and born here? How are you coping? Did you leave?
I think its not just england there are many countries, which seem to chop your Pness.

There are really few countries, in the world which i say ENTP friendly, and still, besides world will take some more years, to actually meet the ENTP standards.

It needs improvement in your already outdated education system run by SJ's for most of the part of the world.
Needs improvement in their economy so that we dont struck up at our stupid jobs, and do something that actually values to us, and what we love.
More maturity , from the peoples part.

I think it would be much better to migrate to a place if you really can which values your ENTPness.
Then chop off your ENTPness. Because ENTP value system is one of the best. and being an ENTP is one of the best things you have and you should not compromise on that.

Or shield yourself in an economy , so that you retain your ENTPness.

You might get that feeling if you moved to Victoria or the Gulf Islands between BC and Washington. Victoria has an overwhelmingly ENFP attitude.

I've always thought of Vancouver as hyper-J, but that could just be because of my unrealistically perceiving vantage point.

OMG,

I love this question!

Yeah...personality type gauged by your environment. You may be 5'2" but you are a GIANT amongst the 3'9"ers.

I think that is a case with me and Vancouver. Canada has a greater P than England at large, Vancouver has a greater P than east coast, and I have a big P for Vancouver. Therefore, England has been one hella culture shock for me.

Brain...don't know where he is, but the island is more P than Vancouver. An ENTP from Vancouver thus might be way more P than from England. (So, very high Ne comparatively? I took a cog test again and my Se has shot up. Is that not also a P function? Maybe I am using my Se to compensate....so in a very SJ environment, going hyper S as opposed to hyper J).

Very interesting.....

Hmm, this is about strength of preferences and might highlight the difficulty with the formal M-B test, which I believe looks at you via the four domains E/I, N/S, T/F and P/J, and cognitive functional tests.

On the formal M-B I cam quite close on P vs. J and also E vs. I, yet my N score was 100%, S 0%, and on cognitive functional tests Ne and Ti come way higher than any other functions, and very close together. The fact that they are close presumably reflects being close on E vs. I, but a weak P preference and 100% N shouldn't really match with what you say?

Just looking around ay my desk and the remedial stuff I am currently having to do to get over the recent car insurance thing which I keep going on about but which really shamed me...I am probably quite P for Vancouver......:tongue:

INTJ gate-crashing. Born in England. Still live here, but I would love to move to San Francisco or New York (which is basically London but bigger).

That's my two cents. Or shall I say pence? :wink:

100% red-blooded American, not from England, but spent a lot of time in Wankerland, and came back saying bloody hell, or "bluuddy ew" and laughing everytime someone in America said "fanny"

also went out a few times talking in a northern English accent, and convinced two chicks I was from MUN-chistah, then subsequently met a mutual friend of theirs who blew my cover

ebagum

Fuck off, Toronto kicks ass. I'm in Oakville, a suburb just outside Tdot. It's nice, and rich. And free (not the cost kind). And safe.
