Alright, so you seem like a bright lot Hopefully I can pick your brain for a second on my dilemma here.
Holistically speaking, I am most definitely an ENTp by profile. However, when it comes to scoring P/J I feel like on that individual topic I am a product of both.
Obviously, this last dichtomy has a lot to do with effecting the other dichotomies and I've heard that I must be either one or the other, but I feel like I'm hybred of P/J. Plus, my (long-term) boyfriend is an ISFp. If you know inter-type we're talking about the difference between being one anothers duals (an ideal relationship) versus being one another's conflicting partner (the least ideal relationship), so needless to say, I'm really interested in this discrepancy.
This is how I see my P/J thought process. It seems to me kind of J and then P and then Both J and P.
I think to myself about the various possibilities available the positive/negative aspects of each.
Then I start to work with the current situation. Who is involved, what do they like, what do I like. Basically, I try and help assess the path that results in the most amount of happiness for the most amount of people and go with whatever path works in that way.
Then once an activity/ project/ event (or whatever is going on) gets going I tend to repeat this process as things progress. a) reflecting/considering multiple options/ planning but still b) considering which plans will likely work best given the situation.
Essentially, it seems to me like I'm (internally) construct multiple possibilities in a J fashion. But, in external application, do so in more of a P way.
(When it comes to follow through, I do so out of obligation, I definitely have more fun starting projects and planning the theory behind the projects than meeting deadlines and seeing them through. But, I'm in the last years of my BA, so I have to )
Like I said, I am an ENTp by profile, not an ENTj. But, there are definitely some strong J factors at play here
...by the way, my apologies if this is kinda inarticulate.
