    If it looks like an INTP, acts like an ENTP, and looks like an ENTP, what is it?

    Seriously, what am I? My I/E always types within a 10% percent difference, and I've gotten answers both ways from tests. I've read articles, taken many tests, and asked friends. Is it actually possible for me to be both? If not, what are your opinions?

    It looks like an INTP and an ENTP? Whatever it is, it's confusing!

    Depends on the circumstances. I also think more like an INTP.

    I actually meant to say "Thinks like INTP" instead of "Looks like an INTP". You caught my mistake.

    If it thinks like an INTP, it is an INTP. That's the definition.

    Figure out your dominant function: Ne, or Ti.

    Figure out which is more "negative" to you: Si, or Fe.

    It's not about I/E on an MBTI test, it's about which function you are leading with, which makes a subtle difference in the psychology.

    If you always score in the middle of E/I, you could be an ambivert. You may enjoy the stimulation from groups, but like time alone too. I am a heavy introvert that can deal with moderate amounts of social stimulation. I'm not 100% I, but my preference is for introversion. If you have trouble with deciding what your preference is, look to the cognitive functions and decide how you most naturally take in information. INTPs and ENTPs have many similarities but their functions are in a different order and there is a different emphasis. I would recommend you take a cognitive functions test if you are still undecided to get some insight into what you rely on, although some of those tests may not be that accurate.

    As an INTP do you crave social interaction? Do you have leadership abilities? Do you talk to random people you meet?
    And ENTPs actually have Ti as their aux, so a developed ENTP could/would think like an INTP.

    Could you recommend a test? The only cognitive test I've taken was incredibly off.
