    TWAT - The annoying gob-ache. Prolific and unrestrained in verbal matters, prone to boasting and stem-brain originated attacks. Interested in self-aggrandisement and gratification of the ID. Governed by the opinion of others, especially those deemed to be the authorities or a popular "boss" figure. A fighter to the (usually) bitter end who is prone to misplaced loyalty, loss of metaphorical wagon-wheels and when under pressure, the wearing of their underpants on their head.

    I like Wagon Wheels and wearing underpants on my head, but not sure that the rest of this criteria fits my personality disorder. What pigeon hole do you think I should post myself into?

    In standardized tests, I vacillate between ENFP and INFP.

    It usually depends on how I feel that day.

    I don't think vacillate means what you think it means.








    But, if you need a scorekeeper, I'm available.

    In the 4 times I've done the Myers Briggs test I've gravitated between ENTP and ENTJ. I'm boarderline on the P and J but prefer my P.

    Bloody ENTJs tend to be the corporate psychopath types anyway.

    I was going to say something sexually provocative and slightly crude, but I'll just think it instead.

    "Personality Type Explained"

    "According to Carl G. Jung's theory of psychological types [Jung, 1971], people can be characterized by their preference of general attitude:

    •Extraverted (E) vs. Introverted (I),
    their preference of one of the two functions of perception: •Sensing (S) vs. Intuition (N),
    and their preference of one of the two functions of judging: •Thinking (T) vs. Feeling (F)


    The three areas of preferences introduced by Jung are dichotomies (i.e. bipolar dimensions where each pole represents a different preference). Jung also proposed that in a person one of the four functions above is dominant – either a function of perception or a function of judging. Isabel Briggs Myers, a researcher and practitioner of Jung’s theory, proposed to see the judging-perceiving relationship as a fourth dichotomy influencing personality type [Briggs Myers, 1980]:
    •Judging (J) vs. Perceiving (P)

    All possible permutations of preferences in the 4 dichotomies above yield 16 different combinations, or personality types, representing which of the two poles in each of the four dichotomies dominates in a person, thus defining 16 different personality types. Each personality type can be assigned a 4 letter acronym of corresponding combination of preferences:

    The 16 personality types

    ESTJ ISTJ ENTJ INTJ
    ESTP ISTP ENTP INTP
    ESFJ ISFJ ENFJ INFJ
    ESFP ISFP ENFP INFP

    The first letter in the personality type acronym corresponds to the first letter of the preference of general attitude -
    “E” for extraversion and “I” for introversion.

    The second letter in the personality type acronym corresponds to the preference within the sensing-intuition dimension:
    “S” stands for sensing and “N” stands for intuition.

    The third letter in the personality type acronym corresponds to preference within the thinking-feeling pair:
    “T” stands for thinking and “F” stands for feeling.

    The fourth letter in the personality type acronym corresponds a person’s preference within the judging-perceiving pair:
    “J” for judging and “P” for perception.

    For example:
    •ISTJ stands for Introverted, Sensing, Thinking, Judging
    •ENFP stands for Extraverted, iNtuitive, Feeling, Perceiving

    What do percentages next to the personality type words or letters mean..."
