    Do you find this information helpful? What are your thoughts?

    You don't need to offer your analysis if you don't feel like it, I won't be offended. You've already been so helpful already. You just know much more about it than I do, so picking your brain was worth a shot.

    The need for inner harmony, inner and outer peace. I've never tested highly for e4. I'll need to do more research into that area.

    My definition of ENFP is based on MBTI. I'm not sure if I've taken the big 5. I've taken several types of tests, both online and paid, and have always gotten ENFP.

    I know little of the big 5 either. I apologize for my limited knowledge, but your description does sound a lot like me.

    Is type 9 a common type of ENFPs? I do really hate it when people argue and fight, but I have my own pet causes that I won't back down on.

    What do you mean by CP and CP6? I'd love to know more.

    Before I got sick, I got called a 'cat' and warned about not having nine lives, because of my curiosity, so hmm, you know... could be why I got INTP from these test makers.

    Why yes, I do have a study for that!

    Kind of. At least I think you'll find it interesting and mostly on topic.

    I am really worn down so I can't give you a long, intricate answer. But yes, this kind of thought is something that lots of people have had when they look at extraversion and agreeableness. (or EF).

    I don't think I can come up with "purest" indicators of IF... well, at least not in my current condition. Here's my fatigue-ridden attempt. I don't think it's wrong to call IF types people-oriented. They are people-oriented, just reserved about it. Nor do I think it's right to call them cold rather than warm, per se. IFs are warm, but, in my opinion, they are usually warm in the way that Myers described introverted feeling: "They wear their warm side inside, like a fur-lined coat." A lot of what gets said about introverted feeling strikes me as true of IFs generally. Some of it is more P-ish, to be sure, but there is definitely some overall IF quality to mainstream descriptions of introverted feeling.

    The 3rd edition of the MBTI manual says that INFJs are "Sensitive, compassionate, and empathic," and "Deeply committed to their values". About INFPs, it says they are "Sensitive, concerned, and caring," and "Idealistic and loyal to their ideas". About ISFJs: "Cooperative and thoughtful of others; Kind and sensitive". And ISFPs: "Trusting, kind, and considerate; Sensitive and gentle".

    Both N and J preferences (but mostly J) add some ... how to put it... "roughness" to IFs, with ISFPs being the softest of the four and INFJs (and ISFJs, to a lesser extent) generally being a bit less gentle. But still, overall, gentle is still a good word for all four IF types.

    I didn't really answer your question, but I hope I've given you a taste of what my thoughts are.

    Teybo commented on Impulsiveness and MBTI
    My money is on a neurotic ENTP or ENFP as the most impulsive type. N -> more possibilities to explore -> more opportunities to follow impulse

    Yeah, I'd say that's an accurate synopsis of our approaches. I don't think there's any "best" approach, though I do find functions to be more useful at the individual level (I "see" them much more readily than dichotomies), and I think - as you note - that popular dichotomy systems like MBTI and Big Five are useful for the huge reservoirs of statistics that are behind them. Those statistics are helpful in that they answer some questions that aren't entirely answered by type, e.g., if INTJs are only 1-2% of the total population, then that is why INTJs have a hard time explaining their ideas to people, and not because INTJ ideas are especially weird or strange. It's fairly easy for me to explain my ideas to other INTJs and Ni-doms in general.

    Instead of thinking of it as "personality dimensions", which take all sorts of preconceived notions about how people interact, I think of it more as "limbic brain" vs "cerebral brain", and which one you're more likely to apply to consciously make decisions, and I'm not using "limbic" in the same sense as the Neuroticism scale, which is more about emotional stability.

    The cerebral side is more apt for making judgments based on logic and reasoning, especially with respect to being able to break ideas down into component pieces and analyzing them and putting them back together in a logical way. The limbic/feeling side is more apt for holistic and heuristic decision-making.

    As a not-entirely-accurate litmus test, those who prefer the limbic way of doing things tend to be very good at dealing with (or at least understanding) people. People are very complex systems that tend to foil anything even beginning to resemble analysis, but if you "stop thinking" and instead "just feel", you can get a good idea of how things fit together and make good judgments. But it isn't just people. When I'm dealing with dancing, thinking only gets me so far: I can get an idea of what the right move is. But in order to REALLY dance, I have to let go and "trust in the Force" so to speak. So instead of counting numbers and calculating exactly when I should make a particular move, I just listen to the music, and I hear it moving a certain way, and I instinctively move with it. (And this isn't "Ni instinct", though it may aptly be described as Fi-Se instinct.)

    I think both MBTI and Big Five are a bit off in terms of using dichotomies to measure personality traits. It isn't "wrong", and it's certainly useful, but I think it might be a system better applied to young adults, people who are just coming of age, than to mature adults and those who are more strongly self-aware. Early on, it's simply just easier to develop one strength or another, and not develop them all. As such, one is forced to sacrifice one side or the other to a process of "lesser development". The side we choose (consciously or not) to keep is our "type". After that, we either continue to grow into the remainder of our humanity or not. If we do grow, we become more like our "opposite", but the flavor of our main type is always with us, and its talents are effortless. If we don't grow, we tend to become almost stereotypically our main type, as we push our limited skills to their utmost to handle life.

    So I'm completely in agreement with you w/r to T vs F: our minds obviously encompass both. But somewhere along the way, we start to trust one or the other more and develop it. Then, later on, we start to trust the other side, however slowly.

    I was going to do a big write up of these ideas and post them to the forum, but I've decided that if I do that, it won't be for several months, and I'm not sure I will ever get around to it. I'm re-evaluating how I spend my free time.

    In any case, since you are interested in these topics, I thought I would pass them along:

    Reward-seeking is probably more of an Extravert thing, in theory. See Eysenck's theories for more.

    What I meant by central... two angles to think about it. 1, looking back at the ketchup v. mustard thing. If it's related to F/T (in our hypothetical world), it's probably only tangentially, weakly related. It's "far away" from the center of the cluster of items that adhere together to form F/T

    Another way to think about it is from the theory first, data second perspective. Formulate your personality dimension and then think about what aspects are most important in your theory.

    Either way you go, Openness to Feelings/Aesthetics is fairly central to Openness. Costa and McCrae used the artist as the quintessential example of someone with high Openness, and the factor loadings generally bear this out.
