Conversation over Beers and Ukrainean Food

Last night, cacophonesque and I went to a bar and then to dinner.

We started talking about The Myers-Briggs< Inventory, and discovered we had the following in common:

--We both score very close to the threshold on the "E/I" (Extrovert/Introvert) scale, and often switch sides because we are just a few points from the middle.
--We both score as an N on the "N/S" (Intuiting/Sensing) scale.
--We both score as a P on the "J/P" (Judging/Perceiving) scale.

On the last scale, one of us is an "F" (Feeling) and one of us is a "T" (Thinking).

We were wondering if our friendslists could guess. Many of you know both of us, so we were wondering.

Poll #1539789 Which of us is the *NTP?
This poll is closed.

Which of us is the *NTP?

Me
13(41.9%)
Destiny
18(58.1%)


Please tell us why in the comments!

That makes a lot of sense for you! The only part I wouldn't be able to guess if I thought about it was the E part, but I think for most people, it's hard to tell online who is an extrovert and who's an introvert.

My immediate thought was that Destiny is the *NTP because of the way she reasons through even her emotional responses to things, and because of the way it seems like she experiences emotional epiphanies as a result of thinking through her memories. I am definitely an NT (although I'm INT*) and that process is very familiar to me.

It is interesting to see friend's results and how they are similar and different from our own. I can definitely see the NT part of yours, and why you would be close on the J/P scale.

I guessed Denstiny, and I think that's the obvious choice. So the fact that there is a poll, makes me think it might be the opposite! *over analyzing*

I love Myers-Briggs testing! I'm always strongly INT, but J/P is always almost 50-50. I really don't know which I am, but I think over the years I'm going from slightly more J to slightly more P. maybe.

Well, this wasn't meant to be a trick question. It was more "do our online personalities (what other people see online) jive with the way we interact in person? Let's find out through the wonders of science polls!"

I guessed that you are the NTP Tea. I just gets the feeling that Destiny might be a bit like me, we seem thinking but are rather feeling under the surface. And you're so damn logical a lot of the time *grins*.

That is my Vulcan ancestry.

Destiny because of Hogwarts house stereotypes >_>

Honestly, no clue I have a hard time telling the difference between what is really N (intuitive) and S (sensing) anyway. THey always seemed a bit of the same coin to me... *scratches head*

Oh! That one is easy! The S (sensing) means you make decisions based on what you sense (what is observable in the outside world). The N (intuiting) is when you make decisions by observing things and then analyzing them or considering what those observations mean.

But our difference is between T and F anyway, thinking and feeling! Or my initials.

I think I've actually talked to one or both of you about it before so am going by what I think I remember.

I'm an INTJ, and I'm having a bad time avoiding social media today. (I was an E in my early college career, but since Tim is more E than I am, I have slipped more deeply into the I category over time and circumstantially.)

I would have no clue as to who is which, but this is still entertaining.

I chose Des as the Thinker and you as the Feeler. And only because that's what it feels like to me.

Because I think the INTP profile is really, really Destiny-ish:

Seek to develop logical explanations for everything that interests them. Theoretical and abstract, interested more in ideas than in social interaction. Quiet, contained, flexible, and adaptable. Have unusual ability to focus in depth to solve problems in their area of interest. Skeptical, sometimes critical, always analytical.

Whereas I see you as an ENTJ:

Frank, decisive, assume leadership readily. Quickly see illogical and inefficient procedures and policies, develop and implement comprehensive systems to solve organizational problems. Enjoy long-term planning and goal setting. Usually well informed, well read, enjoy expanding their knowledge and passing it on to others. Forceful in presenting their ideas.

PS GUESS WHAT I AM NO REALLY GUESS

I said you were the *NTP, very unscientifically. Because I am actually an *NTP (I, too, fluctuate between E and I), and when I had dinner with you/talked in person, I got a similar vibe in that respect. (M-B is frustratingly unscientifically validated in personality psychology, btw, but I like to think of it as an "outlook probe" rather than a "personality diagnosis.") I think from internet only, I wouldn't have been able to tell though...

And I don't know Destiny, so I can't say anything about the relative context!

And by "tell," I mean, make a judgment either way. I don't know if I'm right!

Hmmm you voted the opposite of your comment! Tricky, tricky!

This is a really interesting response! It is exciting! And I know what you mean about watery-- feelings are more fluid whereas thoughts are more concrete.

I think I fall really close on all of them but the N/S one, actually!

I think you're the *NTP, but it's probably just by a few points, going by what I've seen of both of your posts. I can see how it could fit both of you actually.

Yeah, Destiny and I were discussing whether people would see us the way we see ourselves, which is more what the test measures.

I think you are the feeling? That's what makes sense, though I'm not quite sure.

I can't remember what I am, besides IN.

What are you in?!

Also, I would guess FJ.
