    I like that you're very conservative in almost everything, not extreme measures - that is C.John to a tee, if I've ever read anything. :)

    I think most people thing I'm an extrovert! I generally know someone wherever I go - that's a really accurate way to put it. It's absolutely just needing that "**** all y'all" time. Talking to people is great... but wears you out. I bet that's how your friend is, too.

    ENFJ-A Protagonist
    extraverted 67%
    intuitive 55%
    feeling 75%
    judging 78%
    assertive 78%

    Diplomat
    People mastery


    PS I believe part of my reason for this is I moved alot when young due to my dads job. Jut K-12 I attended 7 different schools. Then college and the USAF so I have had to be around many people.

    So - I'm the Protagonist, like entropy.

    Extraverted - 63%
    Intuitive - 58%
    Feeling - 71% (as a Cancer, this makes sense)
    Judging - 71%
    Turbulent - 64%

    Reading the part about relationships rang so true - I cannot stand conflict, and will often sublimate my own thoughts and desires just to avoid it. (Ask the vixen.) But my main desire is for her happiness, sometimes to my own detriment.

    The good news is the vixen can perceive this on her own, and adjust accordingly. (She is definitely my soulmate!)

    as an introvert I would add it also allows you time to respond without the pressure that's there in person. Or regretting the interaction 5 years later because you came up with the best response 5 minutes after walking away.

    No other Defenders yet? Pretty sure that's what I've gotten before, too.

    Defender
    ISFJ-T
    Sentinel
    Constant Improvement


    33% extraverted 67% introverted
    28% intuitive 72% observant
    39% thinking 61% feeling
    67% judging 33% prospecting
    21% assertive 79% turbulent

    most accurate bits -
    Defender personalities (especially Turbulent ones) are often meticulous to the point of perfectionism
    Naturally social, an odd quality for Introverts, Defenders utilize excellent memories not to retain data and trivia, but to remember people, and details about their lives

    Tend to overload themselves, take things personally, reluctant to change, very loyal. Yep.

    Some of that sounds a lot like me, although it doesn't define me as defender.

    Among the questions I could answer at either extreme, based on the particulars:

    "You are more of a detail-oriented than a big picture person."

    Agreed. You have to be whichever is most needed given the situation. During an hour of work, that can change 10 times for me.

    I admit it had to tumble around in my brain for a bit before the light bulb arrived. :)

    Agree. Also, in general, for me, I tend to be hung-up on the micro, sometimes to a fault, but my "general" viewpoint has a large chunk of big-picture-ism.

    I've been like that for a long time, sort of tug-of-war internally -- I guess that partly explains my 93% Turbulence reading.

    I'm still surprised that nobody else has said they have been taken to a cop shop also.

    I didn't copy down my percentages, but I am an "Advocate." Supposedly about 1% of the population.
