    Is it possible to have high Fi for an ISTP ? (ISTP cognitive functions)

    Hi fellow (likely) ISTPs !
    I've been trying to sort it out my MBTI, I get istp on tests and a couple people also agreed with ISTP as type.
    However, I cant help to get the feeling that my cognitive functions are a bit off for an ISTP
    Cognitive Process Level of Development (Preference, Skill and Frequency of Use)
    extraverted Sensing (Se) ******************************** (32.1)
    good use
    introverted Sensing (Si) ************************************** (38.5)
    excellent use
    extraverted Intuiting (Ne) *************************** (27.1)
    average use
    introverted Intuiting (Ni) ********************* (21.6)
    limited use
    extraverted Thinking (Te) ********************************* (33.1)
    good use
    introverted Thinking (Ti) ********************************* (33.1)
    good use
    extraverted Feeling (Fe) *************** (15)
    unused
    introverted Feeling (Fi) *************************************** (39.1)
    excellent use
    anyone here with similar results ? is it possible this is a mistype ? if so which type would be more likely for me ?

    If you have high Fi use, you either were not honest enough with the test or probably aren't an ISTP.

    every time i've taken that test i scored Fi as the lowest.

    Judging from the scores ISFP is the most probable. Possibly ISTJ.

    How can you be an ISTP when your Si is stronger than your Se, your Ne is stronger than your Ni, your Fi is stronger than your Fe, and you aren't even close to being Ti dominant?

    No No No.


    This test blows.
    I did the same thing and got really high Fi as well, along with other people who have posted the same thing as you are right now.

    It has a bad way of defining Fi I think, anything to do with being independent goes to Fi, while Ti is very much like that as well, along with people just being like that.

    And here I was going to say that I actually kind of get the Fi vibe from ISTP's.
    Yet it's likely just Ti without the eccentric Ne.

    Seems like you might be an ISFP. I scored rather high on Fi for that test too, but it wasn't my highest score, and it wasn't anywhere near Ti. I'm of the mindset that even if pairings don't come natural to us, we are still capable of imitating and/or learning them, so I don't doubt you can score high on both of those scores--it just comes down to not taking the tests too literally and figuring out how you think.

    Looks like the OP settled on ISTJ. Sounds like it fits the results of that test very well, and she's probably had a chance to explore the types more since then.

    I did this Test too and got high Fi.... along with high Ti, Si, Ni at the same time; and was even INFP/ISTJ/INTP at one point.

    This could mean myers briggs is a bit more complicated then some of us thought, and the cognitive functions could be used as a base to define an overall type instead of simply E vs I, S vs N, T vs F, and P Vs J OR that this test is only good at confusing individuals (I don't know). After sitting in limbo of what type I may be for a while, I found that the similarities with ISTPs and my self were more transparent in comparison to other types.

    Edit: I guess that is implied by the types having core functions, but I mean the core functions don't always have to match up to T.... (A loss guess) but why else would they have a test that likes to mix and match.
