    Which one describes you better?

    Being blunt. Telling the truth even if it hurts. Can take criticism well.

    2
    Giving approval, being tactful. Taking some care to say things in a manner that won't hurt the other person.

    No, that one doesn't work. That would imply that eg. INTps and ESTjs were polite and didn't want to hurt someone's feelings and that ESFjs were blunt. No way.

    The closest fit on the type scale for this question is the simple
    1. = T
    2. = F
    First eliminate every possible source of error. Thence success is inevitable.

    As I understand it, these questions try to juxtapose (Quadras 1, 2) and (3, 4). You could also juxtapose and . Basically, internal agitation in Alpha and Beta is resolved through self-expression ( ), whereas in Gamma and Delta it resolves through work ( ). That's rather abstract, but I'll continue. Logic in Alpha and Beta tends to take the form of complex systems and hierarchies ( ), and in Gamma and Delta in the form of complex algorithms ( ). Ethics in Alpha and Beta tends to take the form of outward expression ( ) and in Gamma and Delta as internal feelings and morals ( ).

    Maybe, but you can do the same thing to contrast Alpha and Delta with Beta and Gamma using sensing and intuition.

    Too general, depends on the situation and the people involved.
    I read through your earlier posts. Some of the older tests seemed very innovative and promising. I think you should try to resurrect some of them. As Cone wrote, in a sense the type emerges in social interaction, when people are on their own they are pretty similar.
