I'm fairly new to Myers Briggs, but lately attempting to type myself (and others) has been my primary hobby. This all started in a desperate attempt to find myself following a heavy amount of self examination, self reflection, and self doubt. However, I still feel pretty lost and I haven't found an MBTI type that really sticks. I'm aware that MBTI is just a tool and doesn't completely reflect who you are as a person, but I feel more often than not when people discover their type descriptions they seem to feel as though the page is inside their head. I haven't experienced this feeling, and I feel the type descriptions reflect my personality very vaguely. Thats what inspired me to dive into researching cognitive functions as I feel they can offer you better insight into your thinking style. This is how I started to recognize a real personality clash in myself. Anyway back to the point, ,more often that not I test INFJ on MBTI. However, I sometimes question whether or not I'm truly an intuitive type. I have many creative interests including writing and filmmaking. I'm also heavily interested in people, behavior, and how relationships and actions connect and effect others. These seem to be NF traits. However, the core principle behind intuitive behavior is ability to think abstractly. I sometimes question this ability in myself. I'm very bad at math (which seems to be all about abstract reasoning skill) and I sometimes need things to be explained twice before I can fully understand a subject. Also, my IQ is a bit lower than the average INFJ (somewhere between 115 and 120 i'd say). These facts lead me to believe that I may be an ISFJ. We shared some similar traits including, dutifulness and consciousness. I also seem to have the martyr complex that has come to be associated with ISFJs. Unfortunately, I tended to see life very differently than the ISFJ's I spoke to. I take nothing at face value and look for meaning in every situation, conversation, and event in my life. ISFJs seem to take things at face value more often. Also, I read that ISFJs usually don't like learning, school, reading, etc and I'm an information junkie. So, that's where I stand. I'm torn between INFJ and ISFJ. I've also typed as INTJ. The cognitive functions of INFP's appeal to me as well, but I think I'm a bit more consciousness and goal oriented than the average INFP (although I am a hopeless romantic). Anyway, based on that information tell me what you think. Sensing type or intuitive type?
