Well, it seems that this set of descriptions describes the "pure" form of
each one.  Other times I've taken this test, it's also shown just how strong
each of those qualities is, and I tend to be borderline on more than a few
(particularly the J/P and the T/F).  So some of the characteristics are more
accurate than others.  For example, my being borderline T/F means that my
feelings are neither as overwhelming nor naive as this description suggests.
(Probably.  I'd have to think about it.  :)

I hate taking tests like this because the logic behind some of the questions
usually isn't obvious to me, and I can't see the difference between the
options--or my choice is somewhere in the middle, or none of the above.
(Have I mentioned that I'm INTP? :)
