I have a friend I am trying to type. He is definitely an NT, but which one?
He seems INTp to me, but one of the things about him that is making me doubt this, is that he doesn't like to be out of work. He hates sitting around doing nothing. From what I have read about INTp's, inertia can be a real problem for them. It's hard to get them moving. He has worked as a labourer in the past, and it was really back breaking work. He didn't enjoy the work itself, but he loved to be working. He has since gone back to college to do marine engineering. He's really applying himself and enjoys it a lot. I'm just wondering if my idea of INTp's is wrong, or if he may be another type?
A few years back he fell for his friends' girlfriend. They started seeing each other behind the friends back. They eventually came clean about their affair and are still together to this day. I have her pegged as ESFp. I got her to read the description for both ESFp and ESFj, and she said ESFp was a good fit.
I suppose what I am trying to figure out is, are they duals or not. They seem to be good for each other as far as I can make out. I've heard that duals often leave their current partners when they meet. I wonder is that the explanation as to why they couldn't resist each other?
