  1. Am I INFP or ENFP?

    What's my personality type?
    I can't ever seem to figure out introversion vs. extraversion or which cognitive function is my dominant function. On the MBTI tests I always score 50/50 on I vs. E and then on the cognitive functions test extraverted intuition and introverted feeling are almost equal. A little about me: I am...
  2. Thinkers vs Feelers: Being Nice to People

    Cognitive Functions
    It seems to be a common (and misinformed) stereotype that "feelers" tend to be more compassionate and caring for other people than "thinkers" are, and that anyone who has proven to be a loving, self-sacrificing, and considerate person is automatically a feeler, or have Fe as the dominant or...
  3. How do Te users use Fe, Fi, and Ti?

    Cognitive Functions
    For those with Te as their dominant or auxiliary, what does it look like when they incorporate the other judging functions? My assumption is that they primarily focus on making things work (because of their strong Te), and then secondarily use Fi to ensure that they personally like what works...
  4. Is reading a book (or reading anything in general) an example of Ne or Ni?

    Cognitive Functions
    Is reading a book (or reading anything in general) an example of Ne or Ni? Or does it have anything to do with cognitive functions at all?
  5. Extravert forced to be introvert & vice versa?

    Myers Briggs Forum
    What are your experiences when you were an introvert forced to socialize and maybe even thought you were an extravert? Or maybe you're an extravert who doesn't have friends (me) for several reasons and had to learn to be alone? I think the first example is more common in US and Canadian...
  6. Dominant and Auxiliary Functions: how they work together?

    Cognitive Functions
    Just curious to see if my current understanding of the dominant and auxiliary functions makes sense/is appropriate: Lead Judging (focused on understanding info/ideas) Dominant Te = goal is to interact with the external world to understand unbiased (often objective) reasons With auxiliary Si =...
  7. Why are Te/Fe users better at planning than Ti/Fi users?

    Cognitive Functions
    Te Dominant Types: ENTJ, ESTJ Auxiliary Te Users: INTJ, ISTJ Fe Dominant Types: ENFJ, ESFJ Auxiliary Fe Users: INFJ, ISFJ Ti Dominant Types: ISTP, INTP Auxiliary Ti Users: ESTP, ENTP Fi Dominant Types: INFP, ISFP Auxiliary Fi Users: ENFP, ESFP As you can see, all the J's have Te or Fe as...
  8. A question on values...

    Myers Briggs Forum
    Curious to hear your thoughts. Do you think you can understand the value in something if you can't understand the logic behind it?
  9. Which statement do you agree with?

    Myers Briggs Forum
    There is no right or wrong answer, just choose the one you prefer/agree with more: 1.) A decision is considered logical if it is based on an idealistic framework 2.) A decision is considered ideal if it is based on a logical framework
  10. How the Dominant and Auxiliary Cognitive Functions Manifest

    Cognitive Functions
    First, understand which category you fall under: Category 1 = Uses clues in external world to comprehend info, uses personal understanding to make judgments/decisions (extraverted perceiving, introverted judging -> good at thinking on the spot) Category 2 = Uses personal understanding to...
  11. Why don't the INTJ cognitive functions seem to apply to me?

    Cognitive Functions
    My INTJ breakdown is 75% I, 63% N, 60% T, 79% J, so I guess I could say I'm a moderately strong INTJ. However, the INTJ cognitive functions-- Ni, Te, Fi, Se-- don't exactly describe my behavior and thought process. For example, Ni is supposed to be my strongest function, but I see myself as a...
  12. [INFP] Paradoxical Extravert Shutout (PES)

    INFP Forum - The Idealists
    Hi, I made up this term to describe something that happens to me and that I hate very much. Maybe it happens to you too. So, introverts are seen as "shy", perhaps, because we don't initiate social things as much. And extraverts aren't shy because they are more out there and social. Paradoxical...
  13. Do I Have Inferior Te or Inferior Si?

    What's my personality type?
    I'm journeying to find my true type: INFP or ENFP. I've tested as an ambivert on every test, show strong Ne and Fi, and have resorted to trying to identify my inferior function. I've started numerous threads on my adventure, and at one point someone pointed out to me that using your inferior...
  14. [INFJ] Unique INFJ Traits / Powers?

    INFJ Forum - The Protectors
    Hi Guys! Ok, so i'm feeling a little narcissistic today :P What are some traits you've noticed that feel specific to INFJs? I'll start... At work, I often feel like the Introvert vs Extrovert translator. My workplace is made up of mostly extraverts who can't understand the introverts'...

    What's my personality type?
    I'm curious to see what people come up with so I'm not going reveal what my typical online test results are.. yet. Some random things about me to get the ball rolling. I can spend the entire day haphazardly exploring the internet I'm a terrible cook I'm generally an easy person to be around...
  16. NF struggling to type myself

    What's my personality type?
    When I discovered this personality system last year, I was sure that I was INFP because everything in my life was very much based on my own feelings and internal system of values. At the time, I was having a couple of mental health problems and couldn't think of a lot more than my own miserable...
  17. [ESFP] 100% e

    ESFP Forum - The Performers
    Dear fellow ESFP's, As we all know, we gain energy from interaction. Most actions performed on our own drain energy since there is no one to share the experience with. I've read many articles about the different types and also the balance between E and I. People say that there is no such thing...
  18. What would you consider my best fit MBTI type? (With functional analysis)

    What's my personality type?
    To preface this I’ll talk a little bit about my background with the MBTI. Hopefully my experience and approach to explaining it will give you some insight about my type along with a functional analysis that I will provide afterward. I am a 20 year old male. About 6 months ago my friend...

    What's my personality type?
    Hello PerCafe, first of all sorry for my English, I'm trying my best!:unsure: I tested as ESFP, and I do find myself in this type's description. But I have some doubts regarding my extraversion. Well to start, I love being around people. I'm the loudest in my group of friends, I enjoy meeting...
