What you describe is known as sleep paralysis and is very often accompanied with hypnopompic hallucinations ( basically seeing thing's in your room while in a waking from sleep state that shouldn't be there)
Sleep paralysis is a phenomenon in which people, either when falling asleep or wakening, temporarily experience an inability to move. More formally, it is a transition state between wakefulness and rest characterized by complete muscle atonia (muscle weakness). It can occur at sleep onset or upon awakening, and it is often associated with terrifying visions (e.g. an intruder in the room), to which one is unable to react due to paralysis. It is believed a result of disrupted REM sleep, which is normally characterized by complete muscle atonia that prevents individuals from acting out their dreams. Sleep paralysis has been linked to disorders such as narcolepsy, migraines, anxiety disorders, and obstructive sleep apnea; however, it can also occur in isolation
ENFjs are the self-sacrificial martyrs of the types; they love to laugh, and they love to make people happy. No other type can offer love, loyalty, and support in such a way as the ENFj. Though often surrounded by friends and supporters, they can feel lonely, living in a dark world of superficial supplications. They offer, and ask not ... leaving themselves an empty shell; they are the unreluctant givers of the types...cellent communicative abilities to relay concepts in a vivid style that can captivate those listening, molding their own style of speech to suit the perceptions and stature of others...While less mature ENFjs may use their natural gifts for wrongfully manipulative means, most generally direct good intentions towards others. ENFjs have excellent people skills, and make great councilors and conflict avoidance specialist. They can intuitively gauge the strengths and flaws of others and use their intuitive insight to see forthcoming danger, and how to appropriately act to in response. However, they may be easily hurt and blame themselves when ideas and relationship do not go on as planned; they can be sensitive to criticism and may react unfavorably towards labels or unsolicited advice...ENFjs like 'win-win' solutions and tend to seek out the company of others who display any various forms of assertive positivity; however, many have problems adapting to new situations as they stand, and may lack an ability to appropriately adapt to new or changing social environments. Because of this, they seek stable friendships; they make loyal companions and maintain life long relationships with those they trust...ENFjs make exceptionally good orators, and can explain concepts well. They make great debaters, and can convince others of their ideas. They make great leaders, though others tend to unwittingly follow. They make great teachers and care providers; because of their physique, they can possess an affinity for scarves, hats, and trinkets.

Pie for you! I should've sorted the data by quantity..grumble, grumble. See what happens when a pie is made too hastily?

Hoping someone accumulate all the result from this thread and average it out according to the test.
Just did a count as of page 4 on the MBTI--edit*: everything above my post to simplify. I had noted on the the other thread that there was a lot of IN types chiming in. I didn't count one because she? hadn't read the companion thread and didn't double check because I'm a weird kind of lazy sometimes. These numbers are interesting. Here's the numbers first:
INTJ.... 11 1-4% incidence in the population
INFJ ....10 1-3% " "
INFP.... 10 4-5%
ENFJ... 2 2-5%
ISTJ..... 3 10-14%
ISFP ....1 5-10%
ENTP ...1 2-5%
Now excuse me while I stat geek out ya'll because this is interesting. In our sample, we have a population of 43. Taking the minimum and maximum incidences of the top three personality types is the fascinating part. Based on the incidences and the population, we would expect to find that INFJ and INTJ would each have a minimum population at
