Journal Chacham's Journal: Verbiage: Portraits of Temperament 2

Taking yet another bubble bath, i decided to browse Keirsey's Portraits of Temperament.

      INFP growth order is FNST. So, at 35-40, an INFP will start acting like an ISFP. Even though he will become more comfortable with T and J, and use them more and more, there preferences will always be F with N as secondary. If the preference ever really changes, the basis of Jung'
