    I think like an intp, but I test usually as an infp. Could this be an error in the test, or could I be an emotionally mature intp, and the typing system is no longer relevant to me on that axis?

    It could be that you are an INFP with very strong thinking abilities. I think a lot like both an INTP at times and other times I am like an INFJ but I always test as an INFP. You could be very close in the "T" and "F" functions so you may be able to swing either way depending on the circumstance.

    Have you explored functions as a means of deciding, yet? INTPs use Introverted Thinking (Ti) first, whereas INFPs use Introverted Feeling (Fi) first. Very different processes, and usually enough to determine the difference.

    I'd like to find an excuse to call myself an intp, because I can't stand the complete irrationality of the infp board. I feel like I'm the only infp who doesn't believe in the flying spaghetti monster .

    Well, disliking the attitude of a small portion of INFPs is not enough to change you into an INFP, I believe. Do you honestly think you could be an INTP, given other methods?

    INFPglobalchatter, which I assume you are reffering to, is not a representative of all INFPs. Most of the user base is very young.

    And who actually believes in FSM? That anyone could just blows my mind in an oh-wow-point-has-been-missed sort of way.

    Anyways, just lurk around. INTPs and INFPs can be very similar, especially if you don't fit the stereotypical Fi or Ti behavioral descriptions. It might become more obvious of you read around and interact more.

    speaking of missing the point, i was comparing the mystic bullshit talked about on the infp forum to the flying spaghetti monster.

    INTP - The Thinkers

    I tend to think that I have strong F skills but my preference is T. I'm a pretty clear cut INTP but I have a pretty large emotional-tank so to say. Tested as Type 4 in the Enneagram Assesment which I find interesting if not confusing.

    Gotto remember that mbti is all about preference, not ability. The fact that I'm intp just means that I prefer to use T over F in a generic situation.

    Do you detect a change between INTP and INFP status based on context? When do find yourself identifying with each?

    For what it's worth, from what I've read, by the tone you use in your posts I would never in a million years guess you to be an INFP. I'm curious when and how you find yourself more apt to use your F-function.
