Hello there I just joined here and it's my first thread.
I've done the MBTI test like 100 times (okay, more like 15) so far, and I always get INTJ.
Well, I've somewhat doubted my diagnosis (although I don't particularly have a better "candidate"), so I've tried the bloody test when I'm moody, especially optimistic, social, happy, sad, etc. etc.
Especially the moody part. I tried to make more of the feeling choices just to see what happens but I still ended up with INTJ EVERY BLOODY TIME.
Actually, 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.
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 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.
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?
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.
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).
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.
Weird, right? Sounds like a REAL extrovert, right?
I don't particularly hate socializing either, really.
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 lol
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...
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...
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.
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.
