I'm new to personality cafe and just wanted to post about myself. Around the end of high school (over 5 years ago now) was when I came across the MBTI. I've always found it fascinating, and loved how it gave such a better picture than of what people are than other tests such as the big 5 or type A and type B. However I've always been aware that it doesn't have empirical evidence to back it up, which is kind of disappointing.
I've done so many of the online quizzes so many times over the years and always tested as INTP, except once when I tested as INFP. At first I thought that was just an anomaly and looking at the INFP stereotypes I thought that couldn't be me. But then I read more and more and realized that I could be definitely be an INFP. Honestly I don't know which type I am or even if it's that vital to find out. What really hit me though was a thread on this forum talking about 'healthy, average and unhealthy' INFP's. The epiphany I had was that if I was an INFP, I was quite often a pretty unhealthy one.
Anyway I wanted to ask?
Were you confused about your type before choosing the one you did?
What traits and stereotypes of each did you identify with? Which ones didn't you identify with?
