Yeah, I am pretty much that type though.
I think that introverts are only like 25% of the population, and then when you add in the intuitive & feeling aspects you really narrow it down.

My girl is ISFP- It's an interesting dynamic. I think and judge, she feels and perceives. Needless to say we come from 2 different angles in a lot of things.

ESTJ per those tests, but I think I'm an ISTJ as well. How much I've gotten used to my own company scares me sometimes.

I think most people would read me as sociable but, deep down, I don't need a lot of people and prefer to have a few good deep friendships.

I'm an ISFP. Being an emotional sponge is a tough job.

Evidently, I am an Idealist (ENFP).

Here's the skinny on me. I'd say it's close enough:

Like the other Idealists, Champions are rather rare, say two or three percent of the population, but even more than the others they consider intense emotional experiences as being vital to a full life. Champions have a wide range and variety of emotions, and a great passion for novelty. They see life as an exciting drama, pregnant with possibilities for both good and evil, and they want to experience all the meaningful events and fascinating people in the world. The most outgoing of the Idealists, Champions often can't wait to tell others of their extraordinary experiences. Champions can be tireless in talking with others, like fountains that bubble and splash, spilling over their own words to get it all out. And usually this is not simple storytelling; Champions often speak (or write) in the hope of revealing some truth about human experience, or of motivating others with their powerful convictions. Their strong drive to speak out on issues and events, along with their boundless enthusiasm and natural talent with language, makes them the most vivacious and inspiring of all the types.

Fiercely individualistic, Champions strive toward a kind of personal authenticity, and this intention always to be themselves is usually quite attractive to others. At the same time, Champions have outstanding intuitive powers and can tell what is going on inside of others, reading hidden emotions and giving special significance to words or actions. In fact, Champions are constantly scanning the social environment, and no intriguing character or silent motive is likely to escape their attention. Far more than the other Idealists, Champions are keen and probing observers of the people around them, and are capable of intense concentration on another individual. Their attention is rarely passive or casual. On the contrary, Champions tend to be extra sensitive and alert, always ready for emergencies, always on the lookout for what's possible.

Champions are good with people and usually have a wide range of personal relationships. They are warm and full of energy with their friends. They are likable and at ease with colleagues, and handle their employees or students with great skill. They are good in public and on the telephone, and are so spontaneous and dramatic that others love to be in their company. Champions are positive, exuberant people, and often their confidence in the goodness of life and of human nature makes good things happen.

Joan Baez, Phil Donahue, Paul Robeson, Bill Moyer, Elizibeth Cady Stanton, Joeseph Campbell, Edith Wharton, Sargent Shriver, Charles Dickens, and Upton Sinclair are examples of Idealist Champions

Same here. Mondays through Fridays I am very sociable, very outgoing towards clients contacts and coworkers. On Friday evenings, though, I can't wait to get home and just not be bothered. I see that I need that time, even if it's for a few hours, before I got out again and hang with the fellas or chill with my lady.

I definitely don't need a lot of friends, although I do have a lot of associates just based on the fact I'm that type of guy.

In that test I have swayed between ESTJ and ISTJ as well. But I definitely know that at the end of the day, I'm an introvert.

Yeah and it's tough for her to date and love me. Sometimes some of the things I say and do she takes as me not being loving, when it's not the case.
