Introversion vs Extroversion
Sensing vs Intuition
Thinking vs Feeling
Judging vs Perceiving
I would imagine certain correlations of NPA type and each preference, such as:
*Perfectionist types would be more likely to be Judging types, NonPerfectionist types Perceiving types
*A types would have a strong bent to E and S,
usually T and variable J/P
*NPA+ types would have a strong E bent, variable S/N, variable bent toward T, bent toward J.
*NP types strong I bent, very variable for S/J AND T/F, J bent.
And so on.
In my personal catalogue of "ENFP" and "ENTP" types, the trend is toward N and NA types, maybe NA- (the latter sometimes fit the INFP OR ENFP descriptions).
In my personal catalogue of "INFJ" types (considered to be the rarest type), there's a tendency to NPA- types, sometimes introverted N types. NPA- types could be variable for T/F, J/P. A more cerebral NPA- type, or NP type, could correspond to the INTP type (which is considered to be the "scientist" archetype in MBTI circles, with Albert Einstein considered to be a quintessential INTP).
"ISTJ" types would tend to be stodgy NP (or PA, NPA-) types (e.g. the "wooden" NP subtype)
The "INTJ" type could correspond to certain PA types (or NP/NPA- types) of an intellectual bent.
It would be interesting to note any similarities in the descriptions of a given MBTI type and one of the NPA types. Since my analysis suggests that NPA+ types, for example, would be likely to be ENTJ or ESTJ types, which are referred to as "Commander" and "Supervisor/Overseer" archetypes, respectively, it's interesting to note the similarities here, for example:
ESTJ type + ESTJ
Perhaps the creator of the NPA model could only have been an INFJ type 😲
