Hello all just stumbled upon this forum today after taking a different test which had a link to it. That test was longer than this sites and classified me as an ENTJ as opposed to the ESTJ that this sites test gave me. I was curious as to any major differences, if any, and if anyone else who has had a similar experience with getting these two types can shed any light on my situation. Thanks

Based on that info, I assume you haven't looked into Jungian cognitive functions, eh?!
That should help you out...


Cognitive function order:

ESTJ-- Te Si Ne Fi

ENTJ-- Te Ni Se Fi

So basically, the differences lie within the secondary and tertiary functions(the two middle functions), but I think it'd be easier, at first, if I just show you descriptions for both Ni and Si so that you might be able to determine which is your supporting function...


Introverted Intuition(Ni)

Introverted iNtuiting involves synthesizing the seemingly paradoxical or contradictory, which takes understanding to a new level. Using this process, we can have moments when completely new, unimagined realizations come to us. A disengagement from interactions in the room occurs, followed by a sudden “Aha!” or “That’s it!” The sense of the future and the realizations that come from introverted iNtuiting have a sureness and an imperative quality that seem to demand action and help us stay focused on fulfilling our vision or dream of how things will be in the future. Using this process, we might rely on a focal device or symbolic action to predict, enlighten, or transform. We could find ourselves laying out how the future will unfold based on unseen trends and telling signs. This process can involve working out complex concepts or systems of thinking or conceiving of symbolic or novel ways to understand things that are universal. It can lead to creating transcendent experiences or solutions.

Introverted Sensing(Si)

Introverted Sensing often involves storing data and information, then comparing and contrasting the current situation with similar ones. The immediate experience or words are instantly linked with the prior experiences, and we register a similarity or a difference—for example, noticing that some food doesn’t taste the same or is saltier than it usually is. Introverted Sensing is also operating when we see someone who reminds us of someone else. Sometimes a feeling associated with the recalled image comes into our awareness along with the information itself. Then the image can be so strong, our body responds as if reliving the experience. The process also involves reviewing the past to draw on the lessons of history, hindsight, and experience. With introverted Sensing, there is often great attention to detail and getting a clear picture of goals and objectives and what is to happen. There can be a oneness with ageless customs that help sustain civilization and culture and protect what is known and long-lasting, even while what is reliable changes.

So yeah...the easiest thing to do as a first step is to try and identify which of those you see more of in yourself :happy:

Thanks for the definitions. Based on those I'd have to say I can really connect to a lot of what was explained as introverted intuition. Even though a few aspects of the introverted sensing make sense I might just be an ENTJ :crazy:

What elements specifically resonated with you for Si?
