Thanks for posting your results, Mike!
The P/J makes a big difference in the cognitive stack and you are right at the border. So, further testing could help you hone in on it. I experience you as a P because, for the most part, you extravert your process on here. But, you are right that context forces adaptations.
To Mike’s point, one can look up one’s MBTI stack and see in what context one is linear vs holistic and how dominant the function is.
The long professional versions of the test are pretty good. But, the online ones can be troublesome since they are shorter. It will help to get properly tested if things online are confusing.
Dramatica only maps to the MBTI at the Perceptual Function to the PS Style currently. And an N is more holistic according to the test scorings posted.
There is some ambiguity with describing a person as one PS style or the other since the PS style or dominant perceptual cognitive function of the storymind will be different depending on the context.
But, when we call someone Linear, that is a Sensate and holistic is an intuitive for MBTI if and only if we are referring to their more dominant function of the two. When we say someone has a PS Style in the story, we are speaking of the subjective conversation they are having with each other and the perceptual function they are using to attempt to resolve the inequity.
And, Some (IJs and EPs) have a harder time relating to the other perceptual because it is less dominant. (Lower on the cognitive stack)
Here are some examples of the ambiguity:
Batman might be Holistic in some comics, but Nolan’s batman is Linear. —this is an example of how the same character can be given a different personality type to make it easier to tell a story using a storyform that matches their personality.
Fans of a character seem to prefer maintaining the personality type, but allowing the problem solving style to be more focused on a different perceptual function if needed. I think Luke might be an example of this in the Last Jedi vs a New Hope…but, I’m not sure. His Personality is Linear (ISFP). But, as a Jedi Master, he becomes more like the holistic Obi Wan when he messes with everyone’s minds in the Last Jedi—using his 4th cog function of Ni Introverted Intuition to light that spark before he passes. —notice how hard it is for him to do this in the story.

Se (ps style in A New Hope)
Ni. (Ps style in Last Jedi)
I started thinking about this a lot after Chris corrected me at User Group meeting for claiming wrongfully that Kyle Reese in T1 is linear. It was quite a blow since I had been working on a similar script where I kept both subjective characters linear based on a misunderstanding of this concept. I now wonder if the current model compels one to be linear and the other holistic or not. But, even more so that it seems there are four and not just two PS Styles when you add in the judging functions from MBTI. Again, all this would do is recapture the hidden storyforms with the “un-American” signpost orders and add to the storyform count.
