Hey keep doing what your doing. I’m lucky to have found this site so early on, and you can bet Im going to keep coming back here because I can’t wait to learn about the different types. I’m a writer and your site has been very helpful in reminding me why I started using the types as a model for character development in the first place. I’m into it, man. Your site has not gone unnoticed.
Thanks very much, stick around and enjoy it because a lot of work is going to be done in the next few weeks…. 🙂
Maybe you could add right brain left brain types. I saw on another website that the ENFP was the most right brained and the ISTJ as left, but you could analyze it differently. I like the enneagram stuff. I like this website.
INFP, the most suicidal (although infj i think would also fit)
Hi Tim! I’m wondering if you can help me with an anomaly. I’d email you, but then others couldn’t voice their opinion if they’ve got them! 🙂
Whenever I do MBTI things, I keep testing as different things: INFP, INFJ, INTP, and even INTJ. I’m without a doubt introverted. Internally, I’m 100% intuitive, Ni, and 0% Si. That’s why my results are always INxx.
I’m just going to use symbols so I don’t take forever trying to explain.
Introverted > Extroverted
Perceiving > Judging
Ni > Si
Here’s where it gets confusing.
Ne > Se
Te > Fe
Ti ~ Fi (perhaps more Fi)
The question is which is the best fit? Introverted Intuition, which means I’m really a Judger and not a perceiver? Here’s why I think I’m a perceiver:
1) It takes me a long, long time to come do a decision. I spend months going over all the possibilities before choosing one, and even when I’ve chosen, I still think of other possibilities.
2) The journey, to me, is more important than the destination.
3) I would rather observe a problem than try to organize a solution.
But then all of those reasons are connected to intuition, aren’t they? I’m more Ne and Ni than Se, and my Si is practically nonexistent.
This is why I am especially confused. Personality Pathways (http://www.personalitypathways.com/faces.html#typefaces) gives the hierarchy of preference for these types.
INFP: 1st is Fi, second is Ne. Si is three places ahead of Ni.
INFJ: Ni, then Fe, then Ti. Since my Te is greater than my Fe, this doesn’t make much sense. Especially since I’d also have to be a J and not a P.
INTP: Ti, then Ne. This makes as much sense/nonsense as INFJ. Neither really fits.
INTJ: Ni, then Te. This makes the most sense to me, but it would mean I’m a J and not a P.
My brain feels like scrambled eggs. MBTI is a foreign language to my husband (who is an Si, Te ISTJ), so he’s no help right now. I’m hoping you’ve got some insight to help me make sense of this mess!
It sounds to me like you are far more likely to be a perceiver- I believe you are an INFP. Of course, I don’t know as much as you do- you are the only person who can type yourself after all. However, here are my reasons:
-In marriages, one person is usually a judger and one is a perceiver. In your case, you are the perceiver and your husband is the judger.
-For the reasons you listed- enjoying the ride rather than the destination, long decision making process, etc.
-You are using your primary function (introverted feeling) to try and discover who you are. I’ve spoken with many INFP’s who are in the same process of self discovery of MBTI who have analyzed their type in the same as you. I can see many strong correlations to suggest that is your type.
-Being introverted and intuitive does not mean your primary function is introverted intuition, I strongly believe you are an INFP
Hope that helps 🙂
It helps immensely! Thank you! 🙂
I just mentioned you in my blog!
I think that naturally I am more of a T but have “matured” my F side, learning to be more compassionate. I wonder if there have been studies of MBTI changes before and after religious conversions. I think becoming a Christian has made me grow in E and F areas.
My husband and I both desire to be Judgers, but we are both very indecisive. Sometimes he’s the J and I’m the P, sometimes I’m the J and he’s the P. It’s funny how we are never both on the same side—it’s like we ride a J/P teeter-totter.
There have been some studies that show the stereotypical Catholic is the ESFJ. Buddhism is more of the ENFP type, it’s quite interesting in my opinion. So maybe that helps explain why you developed your extroverted/feeling types more?
And thanks, I’ll check out the blog now 🙂
You also have to keep in mind with decisions- do you find that when you have to make quick decisions, you are better at working under pressure than your husband? That is one of the many gifts of perceiving types.
Definitely! I’m the procrastinator and work best under pressure. He likes to have his ducks in a row. In fact, the P that sometimes surfaces in him—mainly in terms of procrastinating and not making a decision until the very last second—is probably me just being a “bad” influence on him. 😉
Well there you go! 🙂
Any more questions about your type?
this is a nice blog!
(an ENTJ reader!)
Thank you Illaria! Great to hear you enjoy it 🙂
do you have any suggestions on where to go next, as in what you would like me to write about?
Hey, I’m an INFP myself and I enjoy reading your blog. I’ve nominated you for a Liebster award. I explain it in my post here. Cheers! http://singaporeanscribbles.wordpress.com/2014/02/01/a-liebster-award/
Thanks for the nomination! I’m very pleased you nominated me, and I commented on your blog- I’ve read through some of your articles and they are very interesting 🙂
I’m a software dev with interest for (amongst other things)
* software craftmanship, ie doing a really good job (unlike most people in the field)
* development practices, ie how to setup teams, to communicate effecivly, etc
* understanding the world around me, in particular complex systems such as humans and their behaviour
While I’ve done quite some research and observation in all those fields, I’ve seen very little that combines them. (The only occurance I can think of right now being a claim on a certain MBTI type being dominant in the software industry, which was how I learned about the indicator somewhere in 2010.)
I’d like to write down some of my thoughts on the interplay between those fields in the format of a blog post. I can do this on my blog, though as this idea reminded me a lot of this one, I figured I’d ask if you like me doing a guest post here.
Hello Jereon! I love guests posts on this blog! With an increasingly larger MBTI audience gathering here, I think this would be a great start for you to start writing blog posts MBTI related. You sound like an analytical and knowledgeable person, and I reckon if you posted a blog entry or two on here, you could even provide a link to your own blog at the bottom.
If you have an article idea in mind, I’ll give you a writer’s access so you can submit the article to this blog site, and you can add any advertising for your own blog on the bottom of the article! 🙂
Great. Once I have written up this thing, which might not be soon, I will send it to you for review. Then you can verify if you think it is suitable for this blog or not. No need for the advertising incentive – I’m somewhat dubious about linking my totally not MBTI related blog here 🙂
Okay! 🙂 I’m ready for your article whenever you wish to submit it Jeron! 🙂
I’m looking forward to it! 🙂
hey, i wanna ask: which mbti type plays which game genre?
I have really enjoyed your blog, and as a fellow INFJ, I can relate to your interest in typing. I have a question: I’ve had relatively little doubt that I am an INFJ, but after reading your descriptions describing intuition vs sensing, I began to have some concerns about the accuracy of my decision. What, in your mind, is the clearest way to differentiate between these two information gathering functions?
Sorry if this is going to be very long.
I am really confused about my type. I feel like I am not a full INFJ even though I keep getting this result every time I test. I did get once INFP. First of all I am sure I am an “IN–“. I like being organised when I study. I always have neat notes and my papers are always separated into each section. Sometimes I don’t clean my room even though I hate it being messy. I take A LOT of time to decide. I love theories and everything about science, I just want to keep studying my whole life because I wanted to discover new things. I am a very passionate person. I am dreamer as well. So I just don’t know, I feel like I am a mix of INFJ, INFP, INTJ, & INTP. I relate to all of them in some parts so I’m very confused now. Please help!
