Jack, I see the post was too far down, so I put it up here, so you can read it and benefit from what I typed straight out of a MBTI book. I know what it is like to seek knowledge and want to find the answers.

FP: My personality type is the only one that has atleast 6 of Myer Briggs codes, which explains why I don't fit well into just one type. Riso teaches that I am Extrovert, Introvert, Sensing, iNtuition, Feeling and Thinking. He describes my type to be perceiver and sensing in his description, somewhat. I will have to do more searching on that topic.

FP: I am a mixture of all of them according to Riso:
(Understanding the Enneagram p. 274)

E or I: My personality is ambivert (both: introvert and extrovert)
S or N: I am both "Divides self into two different modes: Sensing mode and daydream mode (iNtuition)"
F or T: I am both "Relies on a mix of two other centers: Thinking and Feeling"
J or P: I have not found what Riso says about this for my personality, except my core type(9) is normally P and my wing(1) is famous for J, so I would say I am both. My primary is P and my secondary is J, but they are both a part of who I am.


I hope the post below will be helpful to you in some kind of way.

> > Extraverted auxiliary (N) intuition means that you use your (N)-your second strongest function- to perceive the outer world . Like when you meet someone for the first time...you will use your N to figure out how to react to that new person or information.

> > Introverted dominant (F)- your strongest function- means that new people aren't likely to see how you really feel about most things. But your F drives you and how you use your N.

> > I once read that you can personify the functions of introverted dominate Feeling and auxiliary extraverted Intuition by calling "Feeling" your General and your "Intuition" your Captain. Whatever situation comes up you will always send you cCaptain(N) out to meet and investigate it but your General(F),meanwhile back at camp, is running the show and calling the shots.

FP: This is interesting, though I don't really understand since I can't relate to military style of visual pictures. Are you trying to say a person is ruled by their feelings though their feelings don't show for observers to see? I sometimes get confused so easily.

> THANKS ALOT EMOOT:-)
> IS THERE ANYONELSE'S DESCRIBTION PLEASE?

FP: Jack, I guess, I don't relate to the MBTI because it does not adequately fit me and my personality. I am not an extrovert nor an extrovert. I am a mixture of both. Riso calls my personality an ambivert, which is a far better description of me.

FP: I will attempt to type from a MBTI book to answer your question from their theory, upon your request for this knowledge. This is according to Donna Dunning:


"Extroversion: (is an external, action orientation)

Let's talk this over: Individuals with a preference for Extraversion tends to:

* Focus their energy and process information externally by talking and acting

* Dislike complicated procedures and working on one thing for a long time, especially if they must do so on their own

* Learn and work best when able to share, discuss, and process information with others

* Ask questions and think out loud during activities or while working through a decision.

* Understand their world best by acting on it or talking about it"
*** *** ***

"Introversion: (is an internal, reflective orientation)

I need to think about it: Individuals with a preference for Introversion tend to:

* Focus their energy and process information internally, through reflection and introspection

* Prefer quiet places to work and can work on one thing for a long time

* Learn and work best by having time to understand and process information on their own

* Tend to think before they speak or act; they may be uncomfortable when asked to perform or respond on demand

* Downplay their strengths externally, with the results that their abilities can often be underestimated"


FP: Jack, I hope this is helpful to you.
