    Default Do subtypes of different types overlap?

    The descriptions of ENFP (Feeling subtype) and INFJ (intuitive subtype) sound very similar. Perhaps they overlap? Is there a real dividing line between types?

    The descriptions of ENTp logical subtype and INTj intuitive subtype are also very similar. Yet, I believe there is indeed a dividing line and it's most easily perceived through the relationships.

    o_O Where are you guys reading this?
    But, for a certainty, back then,
    We loved so many, yet hated so much,
    We hurt others and were hurt ourselves...

    Yet even then, we ran like the wind,
    Whilst our laughter echoed,
    Under cerulean skies...

    Could anyone give an example? Like, what would be the difference between a ENTP (thinking subtype) and an INTJ (intuitive subtype)?

    there is a dividing line between two types for sure. a person's dominant function is the one that s/he's most confident in; that's the difference. you can be an EN(T)p or and I(N)Tj alright but you will only have one dominant function and you can tell which one you are by identifying your dominant function.

    honestly, this doesn't help much in determining what type one is. but that's how it goes as far as theory's concerned.

    The difference is that one's an Introverrt and the other's an Extravert.

    Me too I've noticed a similarity between the description of the INTj logical subtype with the ISTj type (conservative, a bit of authoritarian)

    the difference is that (i guess) INTjs are just not confident in Se
    and therefore don't use it to the extent an ISTj does and also that's why the intuition of potentialities is developed
