Me in a nutshell. Thanks for that.While I am technically an F, I don't use it like one. I only use Fe to pick up on other people's reactions and feelings so that I can better state my case. Both my Ni and Ti are extremely dominant (I took a test to see how often I use all 8 of my functions and I had those tied).
Interesting. I had a job that was essentially the opposite -- convincing engineers (not F types or particularly cooperative people) to do paperwork things that make business flow more smoothly for everyone. I was an intern, hired back to work for the same project a few times, and told how good I was at staying calm and being diplomatic with them.I do wonder if having very close T- F scores is what makes me quite good at explaining T type concepts (such as balance sheets and budgets) to F type people (the social workers I work with).
Same here. My E/I and F/T waver a bit, but N and P are very strong. I feel like I can identify with xNxPs of all sorts better than anyone else.Generally, I think of myself as an NP rather than an NT or NF. N and P are easily my two strongest preferences. That seems to allow for a multitude of sins!
I certainly relate more to INTJs than INFPs. Which isn't very surprising considering we share the same dominant function. So I agree there are advantages to an NP/NJ grouping. But at the same time, I do think that I have more interests in common with INFPs, so I guess it isn't very clear cut in the end any way.What if the division were not NT vs NF, but rather NP vs NJ as some proposed. Would that be less confusing?
I seem to relate better to all NPs better than NTJs at times
