Basically, I'd like to be typed.
Just post below with any questions or whatever you have to ask, mmkay?

OK. First quick round (very stereotyping):

1. Do you prefer to withdraw or seek out advice to solve problems?
2. Do you pay more attention to details or patterns?
3. What bothers you more: rigid intellectualism or irrational sentimentalism

1. Withdraw.
2. Details.
3. Irrational sentimentalism, most definitely.

Your secondary mode is external, where you take things in via your five senses in a literal, concrete fashion.
That just doesn't sound like me, sorry.

ISTPs have a compelling drive to understand the way things work. They're good at logical analysis, and like to use it on practical concerns. They typically have strong powers of reasoning, although they're not interested in theories or concepts unless they can see a practical application. They like to take things apart and see the way they work.
Quite honestly, I don't give a shit about how things work.
And I'm interested in most theories and concepts, practical application or not.

Their sense of adventure and desire for constant action makes ISTPs prone to becoming bored rather quickly.
Very true, though that's not the reason why I'm always bored.

They are not people to sit behind a desk all day and do long-range planning. Adaptable and spontaneous, they respond to what is immediately before them. They usually have strong technical skills, and can be effective technical leaders. They focus on details and practical things. They have an excellent sense of expediency and grasp of the details which enables them to make quick, effective decisions.
Long-range planning doesn't bother me.
In fact, I enjoy thinking way ahead.

ISTPs are optimistic, full of good cheer, loyal to their equals, uncomplicated in their desires, generous, trusting and receptive people who want no part in confining commitments.
I'm not very optimistic.
Confining commitments don't bother me, either.

This just doesn't sound quite like me, sorry. |:
I can relate to the rational and logical part, though c:
Also, somewhere it mentions introvertedness; I'm not quite as social as most people I know (actually, I am - I just want a more mature group of people to socialize with, and am kinda stuck without one), but being alone bothers me.

No problem, I just wanted to start somewhere. And giving it a quick shot works sometimes. But normally typing someone isn't that easy... :happy:

Sounds like Introverted Thinking

What makes you bored?

Sounds like Introverted Thinking or iNtuiting

So, I think that it is fair to assume ExTx to start with.

If you want to read more descriptions, I'd suggest you read through Portrait of an ESTJ, Portrait of an ESTP, Portrait of an ENTJ and Portrait of an ENTP.

Or just let me know if you think this isn't fruitful, and we can attack it another way instead.

Btw. Love your avatar. Wish I could remember where I've seen it before... :)

I understand :]

Alright, then.

What makes you bored?
School, mostly, considering it takes up a huge chunk of my life.
It's too easy.
I want to be challenged, not just asked to sit in the back of the class and teach myself while the teacher catches everyone else up with me. |:

iNtuiting?
I didn't know that was a word. o3o;

Mmkay.

I don't think this is very fruitful.
I mean, it's a good starting point, but still.
What other ways do you have in mind? c:

Oh, thank you ^^
I found it on another type site I was lurking on and thought it was cute, decided I'd use it myself. Maybe you're a member there, and met the person who had used it or something?
Also, my friend uses it as her MSN icon. It seems pretty common as an avatar.

I sure can identify with that... :laughing: Fortunately it's over for me...

iNtuiting?

Yes, the four basic cognitive functions (as per Carl Jung) are Thinking, Feeling, Sensing and iNtuiting. (Yes its spelt with a capital N, do distinguish it from Introverting)

I don't think this is very fruitful.

You know what, I think you should spend some time reading up on this system, and I'll post some links for you to start with. As you're smart, you'll probably figure it out, if I just point you where to start.Feel free to find more information on your own from there. In the end, you are the one who will need to decide on your type, and others can only help you along the way.


So, pick from the following, and let me know how it goes. I'll get back to you and we can go on from there:
* Look around this forum for the threads in each type subform with the name "You know you are an XXXX when" and just skim a few pages. That should give you a feel for the character of the different type.
* Read this description of the cognitive functions: ENFP Wiki
* Take this test: Personality test based on Jung and Briggs Myers typology
* Check out this youtube video and the rest in the same series (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-TvmNMQWm4o]YouTube - Myers Briggs Personality Type, Part 1: What are you?)


Oh, thank you ^^

I found the animated GIF which surely is what I've seen before...

Oh, didn't think of that. It's OK.

Just let me know when you're finished reading through. And if you have any questions, just ask!

Also, I read up on that type as well as some similar ones and found that this one fit.

Obviously, I've finished reading.
And while I read, I typed my parents ;]

I knew I could you trust you to make it if you tried! And I bet it was great fun typing your parents too... :)

I hope you stick around here - there's lots more to learn about this than just figuring out your own type.
