    Default Help me type myself

    I've always tested as an ENTp, but after reading over the boards here I have found that a great many people find ENTp's hard to rely upon and always late. While I fit most of the other characteristics I've always been one to try to be on time and I hate when otheres are late without giving me warning. I'd hate to be in a situation where I would miss an appointment with someone without giving them advanced warning.
    Is this a red flag that could mean I mistyped myself in the past? Or could my behavior on this issue be because of some other stimuli?

    You could have mistyped yourself but it could also be enviromental factors. How does ESTj (or ENTj) fit you?

    If you have tested as ENTP in MBTI, you're not necessarily ENTp in socionics.

    In order to type you, we'd need more information.

    The fact that you have tested as a certain type, in Socionics, MBTI or any other model, doesn't mean that you are that type. Tests are unreliable as a typing method.

    Is this a red flag that could mean I mistyped myself in the past?
    Yes, it's a red flag. But it is nothing more than that.

    Or could my behavior on this issue be because of some other stimuli?
    Yes, that's possible.

    After looking over ESTJ and ENTJ, I don't think I fit those as well. One thing about ESTj is I'm not really a stickler for rules like they seem to be. I really don't think I have that super agressive nature that I've viewed the ENTj's as possessing. I like to lead and take initiative, but I'm not too forceful about it. Perhaps I'm just an enigma

    No, you just don't understand the socionics types.

    Thank you. Next time I think about making a light hearted remark and following it up with a smile to signify that its just a joke, I'll remind myself of your thoughtful response to my first one. You've been very helpful.

    I'll be more helpful.

    I said that because you said this:

    That's the image of MBTI ENTJs (and perpetuated by the Oldham bit of this site). Socionics ENTjs isn't really the most aggressive type, ESTp is.

    Well obviously based on my last response I may be the smallest bit agressive

    I cant really remember me being aggressive.

    Well.. At least my definition of aggressive
    is like a wet kiss on the cheek and a warm hug by a cute smiling girl.
    is the confetti shots on your birthday party with all your friends.
    is a way to completely rip apart the face of god and stare directly at the naked universe.
    is like over here and then over there and they are all connected and I am on amphetamine.
