In your opinion which is better?
Personally I think NTs are better because they think about things and act instead of acting on their emotions, which can lead to bad situations. But being an SF has its benefits like being able to communicate with people on a deeper level than most NTs
Better is entirely subjective in this particular question. If you want to have a long conversation about personality type theory then an INTP will probably produce a more enjoyable conversation than an ISFJ.
If you want to get the laundry done on a regular scheduled basis then an INTP is probably not your best bet. An ISFJ, on the other hand, will do it happily; at least as long as they get positive feedback for their service and don't feel taken advantage of.
An ENTJ is probably going to be better at running a military unit than an ESFP. An ESFP will probably be better at entertaining a large party than an ENTJ.
To claim that a group of personality types is better or worse than another is ignoring the weaknesses of the first and ignoring the strengths of the second.
Now, would I rather
hang out with an INTJ than an ISFP? Chances are I'm going to have more in common with the INTJ; however, I dated a wonderful ISFP last year and was sad when she called it off.
When it comes right down to it individuality is just as important as personality type. I'd much rather hang out with an ESFJ who is aware of their type weaknesses and has done work to master them than an ENTP who who won't recognize their weak areas and does no work to shore them up.
