    Is Promethea an INTP or an ENTP?

    This is mostly for those who already have an opinion. I think that I have been posting long enough for several of you who are well versed in mbti, to have some idea.

    - People tend to believe that I am an entp because of my behavior and sense of humor, I think.
    - When I take the tests, I score either intp or entp.. borderline on i/e always.
    - I identify with most of both type profiles.
    - I believe myself to be Ti dominant.
    - When I took the cog processes test, once I reached the section on Ti - I felt right at home.. and scored highest in that.
    - I seem more extroverted online than in person, but I am not uncomfortable and I don't feel intimidated by RL - I'm just not too damn interested tbh. I could easily chat someone up, but whats the point.
    - I'm an enneagram 8w7 (and I have heard that its possible for intps to be 8s.. also heard its not likely; and that entps are frequently 8s).
    - I'm not a pedantic grammar or spelling nazi. I believe that if the point is made clearly, then who cares about a misplaced comma? Just doesn't matter to me.
    - I'm not afraid of conflict or speaking my mind (rl and online), but usually I can see its not worth the effort as it will fall or deaf ears or be completely misunderstood.
    - Someone made the observation that I have an aversion to social situations yet I am 'dominant socially.' The aversion again would come from 'whats the point' - rather than 'o yikes! ppl!' I mean, I could go drink with them, play board games, but blah. Boring. THEY BORE ME!
    - I'm always in my head. When I do speak it its more a stream of consciousness that I'm voicing rather than interactive blah de dah shit shootin' (though I can force that sort of thing). [eh. probably just indicative of nt in general there].
    - I'm not annoying to be around ever. I'm very chill.. though I do prefer to lead in the conversation (unless you are particularly interesting or funny.. or have relevant things to say - otherwise I'll tune you out).

    So which side out there is willing to claim me? ENTPs -or- INTPs? (and intps.. don't be biased because of my lack of neat typing. I really just realized a long time ago that it doesn't matter all that much).

    I say introvert, based on the fact that you seem to be comfortable in either situation but seem to prefer to keep to yourself. The MBTI is based on our own preferences, and based on what you have written, it would seem that you prefer to avoid people, because most social situations bore you. I say the same thing. Most extroverts I know love to be around people and don't enjoy (or can't handle) being alone. That doesn't sound like how you have described yourself. My 2 cents.

    INTP. I have sex all of the time and people vilify me as a d[et]trimental [sp]ore of audacious morality.

    I don't know what you are, but either way, it is a blessing that I consider you so likable, since both types are traditionally problematic for me to associate with, at least without conflict. I am very happy you exist.

    In all seriousness though your post remind me a lot of past ENTP members as well as ESTP members. I don't think you are an INTP at all. Just an observation though. I always thought that INTP's had a well developed Fe.

    But I do gots the Fe.. :..[

    Lol.. Ok, maybe I'll add a few things to contribute to the possibility that I'm an ESTP:
    - I take care of myself physically.. (shower regularly).
    - I wear makeup and get mah hir did.
    - I like to watch sports on television (ok actually it was a magic the gathering tournament, and I only watched it once).
    - I'm very mechanically inclined. When I was a child, my mom would tell people I could fix anything.
    - I'm a very good driver.. and I picked up on it very quickly.

    Fe: "The process of extraverted Feeling often involves a desire to connect with (or disconnect from) others and is often evidenced by expressions of warmth (or displeasure) and self-disclosure. The “social graces,” such as being polite, being nice, being friendly, being considerate, and being appropriate, often revolve around the process of extraverted Feeling. Keeping in touch, laughing at jokes when others laugh, and trying to get people to act kindly to each other also involve extraverted Feeling. Using this process, we respond according to expressed or even unexpressed wants and needs of others. We may ask people what they want or need or self-disclose to prompt them to talk more about themselves. This often sparks conversation and lets us know more about them so we can better adjust our behavior to them. Often with this process, we feel pulled to be responsible and take care of others’ feelings, sometimes to the point of not separating our feelings from theirs. We may recognize and adhere to shared values, feelings, and social norms to get along."

    Yeeeeaaa.. I only really have this towards a few people who I'd consider very close to me. I think that I do show caring, but not really by taking care of their feelings so much as trying to give logical solutions to their problems. I can recognize when a person is distressed, and I care enough to help.. but it manifests as problem solving. I think that sometimes they want someone to just sort of stew in the misery with them.. commiserate.. or feel what they are feeling - but I can't unless I have felt the same thing myself previously. Even then, I don't feel this shared feeling for long. Its fleeting. Problem solving picks up. I think it could be why I come off a bit harsh sometimes.. but, yes I care. If I didn't, then I wouldn't try to help. But yeah.. I really do have this Fe thing for the couple of people who are very close to me.
