Maybe somebody should give me a link to some good descriptions since I'm starting to question the accuracy of the site I was looking at...
You could try checking out ESFP and ISFP descriptions? Generally though I think you'll struggle to relate to ESxP descriptions because they tend to describe confident extraverts, whereas you wouldn't be quite so gregarious. Honestly though, function descriptions of Se and Fi would be better for helping you figure out your type. I can't remember any good sources offhand though :/@Pyroscope Okay, I'll go through and add to my answers that you asked questions about (and in some cases completely rewrite them because I stated some stuff wrong).
I may not have been 100% honest. Before I found out what actually happened, I would've thought I'd done something terribly wrong (a few times I really have caused people to hate me by doing something terribly wrong and I had no idea what I did). It's actually pretty hard for me to tell how I would feel after finding out about what actually happened because I've never known anyone who died except for a boy who I didn't like because he manipulated me. Plus I've only ever been in a relationship once and it didn't last long. I would be terribly worried about him/her. I'd like to think I would be focusing on that, but honestly, I guess I would really focus on never being together again. But I'm not entirely certain because I've never been in a situation like that and I feel guilty about not focusing on what it must be like for him/her which is why I wasn't honest.
This is one of the downfalls I think, not everyone finds it easy to imagine how they would feel in this kind of intense hypothetical situation. Please don't feel guilty about it though! It doesn't make you selfish to not be trying to know exactly how he feels. It would be hard for you too. If you cared about him you might not want to presume you know exactly what he feels. It might feel insulting or unfair to assume you can know what it's like for him to be going through it. It might be too overwhelming or just simply something you don't know how to tap into because you've never been there. Selfish would only be if you didn't care about how hard it might be for him, NOT if you find it difficult to imagine how hard it is.
Reading this though, I do think it might be possible you're Fi rather than Fe though.
I was having a really hard time thinking of explanations so what I said may not have been completely accurate. After answering the next scenario I came up with better explanations but I didn't feel like going back and changing them. Really I guess the main reason I don't like working in a group is because I don't know what to do (as I stated in my answer to scenario 4). I guess I just can't come up with many ideas when working in a group and if the other people don't know what they're doing and I DO have ideas nobody listens to me (probably because I get kind of nervous about saying something when a group of people is talking and that makes me speak so quietly nobody hears me even though usually that isn't a problem). And I already said why I prefer a more narrow focus: I don't have to think about so many different things.
I ended up answering your question up there. ^
For both scenario 3 and 4 the main thing that comes across is low confidence, which makes it difficult to tell Ti vs Te. I think the main question to ask yourself is if your preference for a narrow focus is so you can come to a more detailed understanding of why something works the way it does, or if you're more interested in how to apply knowledge and streamline things. Are you more interested in understanding or efficiency, essentially?
I really have no idea what makes something enjoyable to me, but I'll try to explain what makes those three particular careers sound enjoyable to me. I'm really good at singing and I love music so I love to sing and that's why I'd like to be a singer. I already explained why acting is enjoyable. And being a counselor (assuming we're talking about therapists) would be enjoyable because I really want to help people with mental illnesses (especially children) get better. I know exactly what it's like to be mentally ell (I'm bipolar) and I don't want anyone to go through what I and many of the friends I've had have been through. Helping others with their problems is very enjoyable, and even if I end up with some job that doesn't directly involve helping other mentally ill people, I'll try to help them anyway.
I did have a suspicion that you might have a Feeling preference over Thinking, and this does seem quite Fi since it begins with your perspective. It's something I can relate to a lot.
Also, I read a little bit of a description of ESTP and of a description of ISTP and neither of those are me at all.
- Describe how this scenario would make you feel as well as what sort of influences and motivations lie behind those feelings. Why do you feel the way you do?SCENARIO 1
FOCUS ON YOUR FEELING PROCESS HERE
Your significant other just ended your 2 year relationship quite suddenly and with no apparent explanation. Up until this point you had both been talking about marriage and last week you even went to look at rings together. Now he/she won't even return your phone calls or texts. After talking with his/her family you find out that he/she has just been diagnosed with terminal stage 4 cancer.
- How do you respond to your roommate’s request and why?SCENARIO 2
FOCUS ON YOUR FEELING PROCESS HERE
You are in college and this semester both you and your roommate end up in the same class together. You and your roommate get along fairly well and the living situation works but you aren't particularly close. You both typically do your own thing and are rather indifferent to each other. As the semester progresses you excel and become one of the top students in the class whereas your roommate is struggling significantly to grasp the material. The professor assigns a fairly challenging take home test that is a significant portion of your grade. He/she makes it clear that while it is open book, students are to work alone. Later your roommate comes to you begging for help after struggling with the test most of the weekend. You have already completed the assignment and he/she isn't asking to copy your answers, just to help tutor and mentor them as they struggle to complete the test, so there is no way your professor would ever know. However, this is the first time your room-mate has asked you for help this semester. He/she makes it clear that how they do on this test could mean the difference between passing and failing this class.
- Which project appeals to you the most, as it relates to the way you prefer to logically process information? Why?SCENARIO 3
FOCUS ON YOUR LOGIC AND THINKING PROCESS HERE
Your boss calls you into his/her office in order to assign you to a new project. He/she gives you a choice between two.
Project 1 is a rather broad, expansive project covering multiple areas of company operations. It has the potential to have a very significant impact on company operations but it would require a collective effort and an extensive amount of group work where you would be logically thinking through the project together with the group of individuals your boss has also assigned to it.
Project 2 has a much more specific and narrow focus and would require a significant amount of in depth individual analysis to work through the problem. You would be working alone and the completion of the project may or may not have much impact on company operations. However, after complete the process and problem you were working on will be streamlined and fundamentally understood.
- Describe your behavior in this situation as you process and think about the ideas they are presenting.SCENARIO 4
FOCUS ON YOUR LOGIC AND THINKING PROCESS HERE
Your college professor has assigned you to a group project with 3 other individuals. All 3 of these individuals have a good strong work ethic and desire to contribute to the overall success of this project. You are at the first meeting of your group and the other members are tossing around valuable ideas as to the nature and direction of this project.
- Describe what sort of activities would help you to recharge. What would you enjoy doing after a long week and why?SCENARIO 5
FOCUS ON THE SOURCES YOU DRAW NON-PHYSICAL ENERGY FROM HERE
It has been a very long week and you feel mentally and emotionally drained, but good news! It is Saturday and you have nothing significant that needs to be done. You FINALLY have some free time to yourself to recharge your batteries and do whatever you want.
- What were your top 3 choices and what aspects of these careers appeal to you?FOCUS ON THINKING VS FEELING HERE
You have a meeting with your college career counselor to discuss potential careers that interest you. He/she offers you a list of the following careers and asks you to pick your TOP 3. He/she asks you to take money out of the equation. Imagine all of these careers received equal compensation. Focus instead on where you would truly feel most happy and fulfilled.
Artist, Scientist, Actor, Engineer, Musician, Lawyer, Counselor, Entrepreneur, Teacher, Manager, Psychologist, Computer Programmer / Analyst, Clergy, Child Care, Medical Doctor

Click on the image below and pay close attention to the things that jump out to you, objects, thoughts, feelings, impressions, ideas etc. What do you see?
Hey I kinda feel like you might be INTJ.Did the thing first, looked at the key next. Most sums up to INTP, but the first two scenarios were misleading. It seems like I seriously have no Fe.
Imma put the test replies down there, if anyone is not too lazy, may you care to take a look?
Ti Ne Si Fe = INTP
No problem Yes I think an intuitive type can be possible. The reason I thought of an S type was because of the last scenario with the landscape picture - a sensing type is good at noticing all the detail of the image and an intuitive type is likely to think of some kind of abstract hidden meaning in the picture, so that scenario was supposed to indicate the S/N preference I think (but some might not realize this so and perhaps thought to describe what they see instead).
