    These are Keirsey's "temperaments," by the way -- NF, NT, SJ, SP.

    Yup.

    And according to Keirsey,
    NF - Idealist
    NT - Rationalist
    SJ - Traditionalist
    SP - Hedonists

    I got Idealist too, but Hedonist was a close second. I think it's because they included questions that were more like dual-seeking questions. (I feel best when . . . , and I most want . . . ).

    Hmm, yea. I had trouble answering those questions.

    I have tested a handful of real life persons with Keirsey's own Temperament Sorter, and it has given the correct group every time. This test is slightly different, but considering the results so far it might be equally accurate.

    A test of this kind is extremely useful as a complementary typing tool. It can help when you're in doubt between two types from different "temperament" groups, for example ISTj and ISTp, or ENFp and ENTp.

    Interesting result. Have you ever tried Keirsey's Temperament Sorter? If you have answered honestly and have a more or less correct picture of yourself, I would say that you are probably not an ENFj.

    If you always test as a thinker, you probably are a thinker. The only other explanation possible is that you have an incorrect self-image. And if you have that, you cannot be sure that you are an ENFj either.

    I have to agree with FDG, Phaedrus.

    Kristiina has always tested as xNTx or at least xxTx in most usual tests. Her type has been discussed as much as anyone else's. She thoroughly identifies with, and understands, ENFj-ness. Her Reinin dichotomies all point cleartly towards Beta NF and she has consistently identified with, and displayed, an EJ temperament.

    I'd say that a little more evidence would be necessary than a test such as this one to suggest that she isn't ENFj.

    Though I almost always test as a rationalist I identify the most with the hedonist temperament.

    And the only possible explanation for that is, as I have already said, that either she has an incorrect picture of herself or that she is not an ENFj.

    Well, that seems to point clearly towards the first option -- that she has an incorrect self-image. She cannot identify with ENFj-ness and Beta NF and at the same time identify more with a lot of T traits (which she inevitably does if she conistently and repeatedly test as a T type). So, her picture of herself seems to be incoherent. And an incoherent self-image should be changed so that it is no longer incoherent -- that is my main point here.

    You have already agreed that there is more evidence than this test result. To test as a T type in every test is very strong evidence -- unless you have an incorrect picture of your own personality ...

    yay. People talking about me. I still think I'm closer to ENFj than ENTj, but once again I stumbled upon a way to show people I wasn't delirious - I did have credible reason to think I was ENTj. This testing as thinking was one of the reasons. ENTj made a lot of sense, only some nuances didn't match.

    It is not a logic consequence, but in this case he is (like, most of the time).

    Because he is attaching the entire type only to an anchor (the testing) which is not the most connected to the real-world.

    People can have the self-image their prefer, whether it is incoherent, or not. Not up to him to tell people what to do with their self, image, little idiotic punk.

    Well, I think his intentions were good, which was to question the belief of her type. He was questioning Kristina's self awareness, which may be linked to awareness of type. However, your right that he should of just provided an adequate argument to why she isn't ENFJ rather than attack her self-awareness.

    Yes, you do have a point.

    This would be explained by the ENFj inclination to identify strongly with the role they have decided to identify with. If true, that would make ENFj the most difficult type to spot of all.

    You are absolutely wrong. I too always test as a NT type in MBTI, or more precisely xNTP, but I'm definitely an IEI. Before you start attacking my self perception, my self perceptions had absolutely nothing to do with me picking/determining my type, I based my type exclusively on intertype relations I have.
    The fact is that I am an innovative thinker and a rational person does not excuse me from being IEI no matter how much incomprehensible that might seem to you. The same goes for kristiina.

    Okay, however if he had said: "I don't think your ENFJ and this is why" then that would be acceptable. Rather than saying: "I think your incapable of typing yourself" which would be unacceptable. Do you agree?

    Yes of course it would, but that's not what he said, damn. IMHO, He should be impaled and the blood used as a condiment for orgies between more honorable people, but that's just my opinion (the last sentence being the saver of everything I said before )

    Kristiina has always tested as xNTx or at least xxTx in most usual tests.
    And the only possible explanation for that is, as I have already said, that either she has an incorrect picture of herself or that she is not an ENFj.
    You are absolutely wrong. I too always test as a NT type in MBTI, or more precisely xNTP, but I'm definitely an IEI. Before you start attacking my self perception, my self perceptions had absolutely nothing to do with me picking/determining my type, I based my type exclusively on intertype relations I have.
    The fact is that I am an innovative thinker and a rational person does not excuse me from being IEI no matter how much incomprehensible that might seem to you. The same goes for kristiina.
    Self perception does have something to do with determining your type, however basing it on inter-type relations helps reinforce it and accept it. Basically, you need to have a general idea of how you behave to think of probable types, and then using interactions with other people to seal the deal. Both of these are necessary steps in my opinion among many others.

    Wrong conclusion, that only means that they would be the most difficult to spot if they wrote something about themselves. Inborn automatic behavoiur has nothing to do with their altered self perception and if I understand correctly it's inborn automatic behavoiur that is a manifestations of ones type and not people's self perceptions. Those would be environmental if anything.

    Self perception deals with recognizing inborn automatic behavior.

    I agree that you need knowledge of the theory to determine type, it's pretty pointless to discuss the theory and its parts if you have no knowledge of it, but self perception is nothing more then your opinion. If you want to find your type you will base it on concrete, unchangeable, unbiased stuff like a relationship you're hade for 10 years, or the habits you've had since childhood.

    Self perception is nothing more then an opinion. Also self perception includes an explanation of the observations you've made on yourself.

    Yeah, I agree that self perception is your opinion. Though, ironically the accuracy depends on how self-aware the person is. Though you do have a point because self-perception can only take you so far and you do need those examples you stated. Your relations with other people are the primary way to define who you are confidently because they will either refute or correspond to your self perception.
