This is a discussion on Do you ever doubt that you are INTJ? within the INTJ Forum - The Scientists forums, part of the NT's Temperament Forum- The Intellects category; Originally Posted by Catwalk I haven't a clue what this means... When I was younger; I despised dresses (&) walked ...
Well your hypothesis is incorrect then :PActually, I got ENTP like ONCE, and that was done when I was feeling especially anxious and moody.
I did it expecting I'd get ENFP if I do get a different result that day, but VOILA! I got ENTP, the mirror of INTJ.I don't believe in zodiac, simply I don't see people born in the same time as year as me as having the exact same personality.Maybe it's because I'm a Gemini, I dunno.
My personality is very Gemini-like, that's for sure...
A Gemini INTJ...yeah, I feel that I'm both Gemini Persona and INTJ at the same time, which throws me off a lot.
Maybe I'm just confused...the Gemini part makes me appear like an ENTP.
I can entertain possible reasons as to why some people may identify with the zodiac. But certain stars in the sky = personality has no grounds for causality.If you are Ni dom, and prefer thinking, maybe you are INTJ.I definitely AM a Ni dominant, and definitely am NOT a Fe, which leaves me no choice but to be an INTJ, really, but even after "finding out" that I'm an INTJ, I still wonder about a few things.No not really. It can be quite normal for people to put on a persona, such as having a 'work' self and a 'home' self.I often doubt, "Am I really an INTJ?" Sometimes I feel as if I'm really just ENTP and in social situations, I seem like a mix between an ENFP and an ENTP. I know, weird, right?This could point to extraversion. The level of stimulation around you giving you energy.Well...let me get straight to the point already.
I just can't work, focus, or study at home, no matter what it is.
I study the best when I'm at a cafe.
I dunno...I plug myself earbuds all the same, whether it be home or cafe, but it definitely makes a HUGE difference.
Even the cafes, I seem to function better at hectic places with lots of people in it.
It may just also be one aspect you differ from introversion.
Or maybe you grew up in a noisy household and it's familiar.This is not the same as background noise. Waste of time being a reason you don't do group study is no the same reason you like to be in a 'hectic' environment.The weird thing is, I really don't do group studies.
EVERY group study either turns out to be a pure waste of time, or just turns out to be socializing, with no real studying done (at least for me).This could be type related, or maybe getting exercise, fresh air and sunshine helps your bodies metabalise and gives you energy. I'm sure the vitamin D helps with higher energy levels. Plus apparently the brightness of sunlight helps us to produce dopamine in the brain. Whilst it's far to simplistic to say it increases ones mood, it does also seem to help with proper eye development.It's not like I particularly like or hate socializing, but my energy level just drops when I'm home, as if I'm some sort of a bear preparing for winter hibernations or someting.
I get so lethargic I lose willpower to do most things at home, but the moment I get outside, like even for a short walk, I get all energized and hyped up, as if I'm charging up outdoors.I'm an introvert, I don't hate socialising. Really depends on the kind of socialising, and the duration.Weird, right? Sounds like a REAL extrovert, right?
I don't particularly hate socializing either, really.I'm sure thinkers have the capacity to be aware of emotions.Assuming I am an extrovert, maybe I'm an ENTJ, you might think, but eh...
I just CANNOT see myself as an ENTJ in any way, because my Fi is MUCH more developed than an inferior function Fi would be.
I am very aware of my emotions, causes, meaning to me, etc.
BESIDES, I'm just too hikikomori and disinterested to be an ENTJ lolDepends on which functional model you follow.Well, in short, I'm DEFINITELY not an ENTJ.
If I indeed AM an idealist, then I'm definitely not ENFJ/INFJ, because my feeling function is either Fi or weaker Fe at best, leaving ENFP/INFP as candidates.
I was once convinced that maybe I'm an ENFP, but I'm not anywhere near nice enough, optimistic or emotionally reactive enough to be any one of those.
(EDIT: maybe that description was a bit stereotyping, but eh...I hope you get the point)
I did a bit of research on both types, but I really can't see myself as one...Ok so have you come to the conclusion you are an intuitive?I once considered the possibility of me being ISFP but my perception of the world is definitely that of a intuitive, as I almost always think about past, present, and future of the humankind and all such not-so-necessary abstract shit when I'm just thinking on how my life will unfold for the next month.
I spend WAY more time in my head than the real world too...So we can cross of INTP??I can't see myself as an INTP, because although I like thinking for the sake of thinking, I often think for a practical purpose (although it may seem unpractical/dreamerlike for the sensors, the purpose, nevertheless, is a practical one, almost always) than just think for the fun of it.
I have many INTP friends, so I'm all the more certain.Well you bring up possible types, you then have possible explanations to not be those types. You are holding on to the possibility of ENTP and INTJ and holding both potentially true. Could be Ne here.That only leaves ENTP and INTJ.
I'm really unsure now.
Maybe I'm an ENTP, or maybe I'm an INTJ.
Almost all MBTI test results say I'm an INTJ, and my thought process when I'm alone indeed seems like that of an INTJ, but the part where I get energized outdoors part, is what throws me off completely.
I'd appreciate any thoughts and comments, thanks.
I could lean not INTJ as I am getting a lot of energy from your writing. I don't however take myself seriously typing on vibe. You may need to focus on introspection to see where your preferences lie.
Again energised outdoors could just be you getting your body active. My bet not type related.
As for your initial question
I have yet to even settle on a type however I am circling on to INTJ. Statistically I am pointed in the direction of Ni more often than other functions. Fi follows next. People have typed me as INTJ, INFJ, INFP, ISFP.
Understanding my own cognition, I can relate to Ni. I can also see aspects where Ne may come out. I can see how in my communication I tend to take a more Te approach. I'm not as interested in a more Ti train of thought, but I can acknowledge people have their own ways of understanding things which can be different from mine. I am aware of Fi, but its only now in life that I have been developing it. I do not have a well developed feeling function so I'm most likely a thinking type.
I'm sure about introversion.
Doubt? One's own... self?
An INTJ does not doubt.
It doesn't feel pity
It doesn't feel fear!
It can't be bargained with
It doesn't feel pain!

1st time i read Jung's paper on the thinking type introvert it described my existence perfectly
every time i took mbti test [5X's] i always tested positive for INTJ
INTJ descriptions matches me perfectly. Every test I take is INTJ. I know I'm INTJ (what really counts).
Being so introspective, I think every INTJ knows they are INTJ if they drop all the preconceived expectations (from others), and look just at their genuine self.
My parents used to tell me introversion was a disease, so I denied being an introvert for a long time. However when I learned what it really is, and took an unbiased look at my own preferences, I know I am an INTJ straight away.
