This is a discussion on INFJ/INFP Uncertainty. halp within the INFP Forum - The Idealists forums, part of the NF's Temperament Forum- The Dreamers category; Originally Posted by Dementedbliss [...] Edit: Do you though, as a sober INFJ ever roast people jokingly? When people do ...
But if you or anyone else thinks I'm one, well, I certainly can't convince you otherwise. I've been mistook for an ENTP and ENFP before. But I know for myself that my lead function is an introverted one. Introversion is how i regain my energy and mental stamina.
eta- same thing happenned to me. i tested INFP after consistently testing INFJ for a long time. I do feel like I had a personality change since I broke up with my ESFJ bf. maybe our personalities just merged a bit and thats why I tested J. i tend to care more about other people opinions of me now and am more concerned with others as well.

And what's interesting is that both my brother and mom are unhealthy ESFJs. My dad is ISTJ. It's quite possible that it instilled into me a stronger judging preference, though it may not be my natural one. Now that I'm older and have distanced myself from them a bit a different side of me is coming out. I used to be a lot more direct and crass.
Another thing standing out to me here is that not one person yet has even entertained the thought that I'm actually an INFJ hahaha. So thank you for sharing your similar experience!! i read that a lot of actual INFPs who mistype as INFJ don't want to accept that they're INFPs because it's not as "special" as being INFJ. But that's such a silly thought to me because being an INFP means you're less alone in your personality than you initially thought.
Would you mind if i asked you what you were like then vs now?
By the way, seeing as though you aren't INFP, what brought you to this thread out of sheer curiosity? Did you have a mistyping experience?
I believe i know the difference between Fi and Fe. I can spot lead Fe users easier than any other function, actually.
Fi - focus on how stuff relates to self, then attempts to show it uniquely it via word, deed, intent...or art lol
Fe- focus on how stuff relates to others uniquely in word, deed, intent... also a lot of expressiveness I've noticed
