I've just joined this group because of a personal research project(trying to "type" the 12 disciples). From what you've posted it seems that your dominant preference is subjective or feeling but you show the world either the intuitive or sensor-side of your decision making process. This is a good thing that you are able to switch from being sensor-oriented to intuitive. You're able to make decisions about things in a moments notice (concrete, non abstract) or really sit down and think about things (abstract, intuitive) before you commit to them.

The MBTI seems to have a copyright on their stuff. There are 2 books which give short questionairres on it -- "Please Understand Me" & the FIRST PRINTING ONLY of "One of a Kind" about the personality of kids. Another very good book on MBTI which shows how each type "thinks" is "People Types & Tiger Stripes". The understand me book questionairre is 64 questions, the other is 40 questions.
Amazon.com sells stuff. Amazon & Alibris Books both sell used books, with indication of condition thereof. Amazon -- on books but not digital electronics -- guarantees refund of total cost from these outside vendors if unable to resolve within 30 days. I don't know if Alibris has a guarantee or not. When purchasing a used book, I always check BOTH, because either could be a better deal.

I THINK I AM MOST LIKE DISCIPLE ANDREW.
I always come out as INTP. However, I have strands of INFJ -- for writing poems, ESTP -- for sexual urges, ISTP -- for down-to-earth, ENTP -- for more outgoing side wild & wonderful dizty imagination, INFP -- only a smidgeon, for dreamy wishing all things were better & having mystical moments in the heavenly realms, INTJ -- on the job get something done instead of INTP daydreaming about things with a mystical/spiritual/beauty appreciation angle.
My best friend Kevin is ESTJ.
My first wife Mary was ESFJ & ISFJ.
My 2nd wife Joellene was ESFP, ENTP, and either ENFJ ( most likely ) or ENTJ.
My maternal grandfather Jess was ISTP farmer.
My mother Alpha is combo of ISTP & ISFP. She has "cross-sense" perceptions -- things perceived via one of the 5 senses, she sees via instinct somehow as via viewpoint of another sense. So she can read people easily and is aware...
My lawyer & musical endeavor associate Jack is INTJ lawyer.

BECAUSE OF KEY CLUB IN HIGH SCHOOL WHERE WE VISITED ALL THE CHURCHES IN TOWN & TAKING COURSE IN WORLD RELIGIONS AT NORTHERN BAPTIST RELIGIONS, AND MYSTICAL EXPERIENCES, AND LOOKING INTO WWW.BELIEFNET.COM, I HAVE TURNED OUT AS A MIXED BREED OF BAPTIST ( RAISED ) / METHODIST CHOIR SONGS / INTERDENOMINATIONAL FOR SMALL GROUPS / BUDDHIST WISDOM SAYINGS -- FROM BELIEFNET / MYSTICAL A LA ST. TERESA OF AVILA.
I HAVE PAID FOR SOME FRIENDS TO RECORD SOME METHODIST CHOIR SONGS TO BE PLAYED AT MY FUNERAL -- GO OUT WITH JOY, I KNOW WHERE I AM GOING, and HE TOUCHED ME.
SOMETIMES I IMPROVISE SLIGHTLY ON MY BASS PART WHEN SINGING IN CHOIR.
ALL TIME FAVORITE CHRISTIAN SCHOLAR IS F.F. BRUCE, WHO WROTE COMMENTARIES, EDITED THEM, WROTE SOME HISTORY BOOKS, & WAS A PLYMOUTH BRETHREN -- WHO BELIEVE IN "HOUSE CHURCHES" AS IN NEW TESTAMENT.
I USE PRIMARILY NOW LARGE PRINT NIV. I like also NKJV, LIVING BIBLE, NRSV. I COMPARE TRANSLATIONS SOMETIMES. THERE IS A WEBSITE WHICH HAS NUMEROUS TRANSLATION ONLINE, BUT I FORGET IT'S NAME. IT HAS GOOD SEARCH CAPABILITY.
AS TO KJV & NKJV -- ESSENTIAL WORDING FOR 2 TIM 2:15 -- RIGHTLY "DIVIDE" THE WORD OF TRUTH -- I.E. BREAK IT UP INTO APPROPRIATE PIECES.
