Which MBTI Type would be the most weird?
I voted INTP. N is more weird than S, especially since most people are S, and all the abstract thoughts seem less normal. P is more weird because I view J as more structured and linear, and P is all over the place. T seems more weird than F, but this one is close. I feel like a T would be less likely to understand social norms, and thus be less normal. Same for I vs E.
Infj are probably the weirdest since they are apparently the rarest type in the general population.
Genuinely have never met anyone as strange to me as an INFJ really devoted to a particular spiritual view. To my best understanding, I've met three so far over the course of my life, and they were really lovely people but really deeply wound into their views, so much that they seemed to fairly frequently run into friction with the "real" world. One said he was on a secret military mission and was living in the desert and becoming a messiah. One I was emotionally close with and I can confirm that she had some degree of true prescience. One is a firm believer in Messianic Judaism and a firm Trump supporter.
Runner up goes to an ENFP I knew who legitimately believes in werewolves and that animals and humans can marry in California, but I also think he has untreated PTSD from his traumatic military past.
Depends on what you mean by weird. If you're talking like, cute random stand-out weird, then ENFP. If you're talking weird weird, probably INTP.
INFP or INFJ, no contest. What is and isn't weird is subjective, but these are the two types that I personally think of. I voted INFP because Fi is usually going to be more comfortable with directly defying social convention, but there are some real weird INFJs too, like @angelfish mentioned.
ENFPs are probably the extrovert most prone to being seen as weird, likewise ISFPs for sensors. In regards to INTP currently leading, the INTPs I know tend towards being very introverted and/or kind of awkward, but I don't think "weird" is the word I would use.
Eh Actually some of the weirdest people I have known have been, ISXJs.
Also I think some of the most neurotic mistyped INTxs on this site are ISXJs
Not saying they are all weird. But most of the ones I have known have been a bit weird to my definition.
The male ISTJs I have known have seemed to have some sort of inferiority complex. Over asserting dominance in like really absurdly petty ways. Just about technical rules that are absurd and calling people out on really stupid rules. Fuck I actually had an ISTJ who I know like adored me (he really was sweet), but he would challenge me on the most absurd things, like how to perfectly put away inventory (really? because why lol, if I had a crush on a chick my first response would not be to scold and correct her on stupid details).
The female ISFJs I have known all have like stockholm syndrome where they place an attachment to an unhealthy egomaniac and then perpetuate and enable the problem. What makes it odd to me is that they are all so acutely aware of bs and nuances and can be some of the most perceptive people on human nature. But they seem to almost turn a bling eye on this front.
I think alot of the more counter culture groupings in highschool like over romanticized culturizing was done by ISxJs as well. I do believe alot of them were the outcasts.
Not suggesting they are all like this. But the ones I have known closer have more often then not been like this. But that said. I actually like both ISxJ in general. Both are usually people I actually mesh farely well with. I tend to feel like I am seeing beneath the exterior. Exterior wise tho they can be a weird bunch.
This is a criticism rather than a personal attack, because you are dragging my type into the dirt based off of faulty logic, and by giving you the other option of fucking yourself, I'm trying to imply that unless you use cognitive functions, there isn't really much basis supporting your arguments, and also, it's my type of humor to impersonally throw words considered insults around, and as you can see, "fuck you" and "no offense" contradict eachother, which is also funny, in the same sentence, if you ask me. Also, the only reason I'm even writing this long justification text is to avoid getting infracted for being misunderstood, but as an ENTP, meaning Fe, meaning collective morals, meaning not offended by personal attacks, I hope you don't kill me for it, or another mod who might think that you feel like you want to kill me for it, does it "for you" regardless of what you actually think, because rules and shit, am I right?
How about elaborating?
Why is it, that I think, you think, that I'm an ISTJ?
From my side, I could just say "Wrong!", and that's that, but from your side, it wouldn't be satisfying, because you don't really know me and know what I know and think, and given your experience, I wouldn't put it past you to misinterpret the psychological processes behind what I'm saying, depending on whether or not you misinterpreted the psychological processes behind the people in your experience, because you may not understand either the theory or the definitions of the cognitive functions correctly.
I'm lazy, and I know how this story is gonna end, so let's get to the interesting part.
1. I prove to you that I'm an INTP
2. You get confused and start to doubt your own framework of MBTI psychology
3. You stick to your guns and give it the benefit of the doubt that you're right
4. Considering my side, it being fact that I'm an INTP, you'd inevitably lose regardless, and then overthink your framework
5. You'd come to one or more of the following conclusions:
- A) INTP and the ISTJ are very similar
- B) It's actually the INTPs who have this "inferiority complex"
- C) My boyfriend was actually an INTP
- D) My "inferiority complex" theory is either wrong or different from what I previously thought
- E) My theory that some INTxs are mistyped ISxJs is either wrong or different from what I thought before
So, considering all of this, what's the point at all?
