    A Journey Through MY personality?

    For as long as Iíve known about personality types, Iíve always thought I was an ISFP. Iíd taken the test a million times and the results had always come back ISFP. BUT this just didnít seem right.
    Although I've always considered myself as a creative - I have a degree in Performing Arts and have always been interested in creative things - the ISFP personality just didn't fit. Of course, I was absolutely thrilled to be the same personality type as David Bowie, but it just wasnít me. I'm not naturally gifted in creativity, despite loving creative things, instead I really have to try. That's not to say that the more creative types don't have to try at all, but my boyfriend is an INFP and heís naturally brilliant at whatever he puts his mind to, which is infuriating for me lol.
    We decided that although I hold similar traits to the ISFPs, I donít care enough about people to be oneÖand Iíve always suspected that Iím not perceiving in the slightest. Definitely judging. So it baffled me that I was perceiving in any way, shape or form.

    Fast forward to the 100th time taking the damn test and I answered it more honestly than I have before. ISTJ. Surely thatís not right? Iím not logical enough surely? Iím not a thinker, Iím a feeler. AgainÖ ISTJ. AgainÖISTJ. Damn.
    I feel like everything Iíve known about myself is a lie. I thought that because I may have been an ISFP, I could justify my weirdness and why my family didnít understand me (theyíre all Tís and for the longest time I thought I was an F, which explained everything.)

    Now Iím just bitter and very confused. Has anyone else ever felt like this? I feel like I may as well give up doing anything creative because itís not what Iím meant to do. All the career paths for an ISTJ are nothing I want to do or am interested in. I know you donít HAVE to go down the personality route for everything but I feel so cheated?

    Do I need to do the test again? I get confused by some of the questions anyway and my boyfriend usually explains them but is there any way to know for definite?

    Have you tried keys2cognition.com? I always advice people to take a test from keys2cognition because the result would rarely changes. Another option is you might look up for articles about cognitive function. Read them all over and you can associate youself with them. Because Fi-Se (ISFP) and Te-Si (ISTJ) are very different all over

    My impression based on how you write is ISFP. seems like your Fi made you feel weird between your family. An ISTJ would never feel weird, especially among Ts. Their Si-based Extraverted Thinking would try hard to be as normal as possible. An ISTJs are generally, knows what they want to be in the future since Si are the most focused and consistent in planning a goal, and their goal are usually very specific.

    But you don't seem to be INFP since most of the test you would get ISTJ. You always get ISFPs and then repeatedly ISTJs. An intutive won't result as a sensor for bloody million times. An your impression toward your boyfriend seems like you're not INFP as well. An INFP towards and INFP usually feels deeply similar.

    And why do you think you are a judger instead of perceiver may I know?


    So I assume you are an ISFP. What do you think? :)

    In my opinion tests only help narrow possible options, taking them over and over will not help determine a type.
    Keys2cognition is pretty bad in my opinion i got really weird results on that.
    From what i have read ISTJ's tend to take results of tests for granted even if their result is often very wrong. Unlikely for ISTJ to retake tests over and over fpr 100th time. I don't know how accurate is that tough.

    Don't let a test tell you who you are or what you can do!

    Also, perceivers are outwardly judging and judgers are outwardly perceiving; it is a confusing theory, but you do not write like an ISTJ at all. You write like a feeler who is frustrated. My biological father is an ISTJ, so is an aunt, others I know--and they wouldn't let a test tell 'em diddly. :-D

    You may be an INFP; many do not like others in general; they are artistic, very internally driven. Think of Bob Dylan but not like, "Oh, I must be as talented as he!" Just look at the man, do some research and ask yourself if he strikes you as "someone who cares about people" in a here/now, one-on-one or generally social way. Nope.

    Ignore trolling comments. Not helpful, and you don't have to give 'em attention which they really like--the kinds who write trolling things: Look at meeeeeeeeeee.

    So instead?



    If you need anything Mention @BranchMonkey and I will help or find someone who can.

    Hey,

    Thanks for your response, I'll definitely have a look at that one!

    I always felt a little different amongst family, and often they pick on me because I feel differently about things. One thing they massively pick on is how into bands/artists I get when I like them. I tend to talk about them a lot and constantly listen to music by said band/artist so they really dig me out over it, especially when I get so passionate about something. The only person who sort of understood me was my Dad and I'm 99% sure he's a feeler because he's very thoughtful with gifts and things like that. I definitely don't think I'm INFP, as you said I've repeatedly been Sensing so that wouldn't make sense.

    I'm not sure if your personality can change, but I recently had a baby and moved into my own place and since then I've become a totally different person according to my boyfriend. I'm very picky about the housework but that's because I like it to be neat and tidy for the little one. I've also been recently diagnosed with depression and anxiety, my boyfriend has a theory that it may be something to do with having different moods when taking the test and perhaps I could have been a bit harsh with my answers due to how I was feeling at the time.

    If I'm basing my personality on how I was before all this, I'd definitely lean more towards ISFP, but as of now, I'm really not sure.
    AND I think I'm a judger because I tend to jump quickly to judge people but it's more inward unless I'm with my boyfriend or best friend!!!

    Thank you though! If you have any more thoughts I'd LOVE to hear them.
