1. Click on this link: Flickr: Explore! Look at the random photo for about 30 seconds. Copy and paste it here, and write about your impression of it.

sorry can't post links but I'll describe it....

I like black and white photos to start off with. It's very minimalist which I also like. It seems to be taken in a desert with what looks like sculptures? I'm not sure what they are - the name for the picture is The Body Beautiful which I don't see how it relates. I like the picture though, I'd hang it on my wall.

2. You are with a group of people in a car, heading to a different town to see your favourite band/artist/musician. Suddenly, the car breaks down for an unknown reason in the middle of nowhere. What are your initial thoughts? What are your outward reactions?

Initial thoughts would be "Oh great, the car is broken". I'd probably laugh out of surprise. I know nothing about cars but I would try and sort it out despite my lack of knowledge, I'd probably end up googling it all before calling up a service though to come fix the car . I'd also be slightly annoyed we might miss the concert.

3. You somehow make it to the concert. The driver wants to go to the afterparty that was announced (and assure you they won't drink so they can drive back later). How do you feel about this party? What do you do?

Depends on what the party is like and whether I feel like drinking. I prefer smaller groups so I can actually talk and not be swamped by louder personalities. I like dancing though so that's more so what I'd be keen to do over everything. If everyone wants to go, I'd go along - majority rules I guess in this situation and I usually enjoy myself.

4. On the drive back, your friends are talking. A friend makes a claim that clashes with your current beliefs. What is your inward reaction? What do you outwardly say?

I know what my beliefs are but I'm open to them being challenged. Inwardly I'd be like "what", as if I were muttering it under my breath but outwardly I'd happily debate them on it. I enjoy questioning people about things that are different to the way I think.

5. What would you do if you actually saw/experienced something that clashes with your previous beliefs, experiences, and habits?

I'm assuming these would be pretty much established already so it would take some adjusting if this clash was actually for the better but I can't really say how I'd react, it's never really happened before. I think I'd just be slightly confused but again, open to this happening to me.

6. What are some of your most important values? How did you come about determining them? How can they change?

Not in order but probably humour, kindness, loyalty, trust, intelligence and creativity. These are what I like most about myself and it's what I enjoy in people I know. I'm not sure how they can change because I feel like they're all positive values and don't really need to be changed.

7. a) What about your personality most distinguishes you from everyone else? b) If you could change one thing about you personality, what would it be? Why?

a) I don't know - I'm not exactly different to everyone else. I guess with my friends I'm a lot less emotional than them. I'm pretty patient unlike other people. My sense of humour is different (witty and sarcastic) rather than just silly and meme-y (not all the time though, I'm not dissing my friends). I constantly get told I ask "why?" all the time - perhaps more curious than some of my friends?
b) I wish I was more outgoing - for example tonight I was at a dinner party and I had some funny comments to make but I'd be talked over by someone much louder and I couldn't make them. I've been told I'm quiet before which bugs me a bit because I'd like to be heard.

8. How do you treat hunches or gut feelings? In what situations are they most often triggered?

I'm not that big on hunches or gut feelings. I get them but I don't really know how to treat them because they're not really based on anything but a feeling, it's not really that tangible. I usually base things off logic or something with reasoning. They're most triggered in situations where I'm confused about something or don't immediately know what to do.

9. a) What activities energize you most? b) What activities drain you most? Why?

a) I like being with my friends and family, I like making videos, taking photos and writing. I like playing sport.
b) Bigger events where I have to give 110% energy and be as loud as everyone else because I'm more quiet.

10. What do you repress about your outward behavior or internal thought process when around others? Why?

I feel like part of the reason I'm quiet is that I repress saying things for fear of being judged by others. I'd say them around my family or Tweet them or something but I'm a bit different when it comes to others.

I also repress affection - or I don't know whether I like it. I don't really like hugs, I'm not every touchy, I'm horrible with emotions and comforting people (don't ever ask me to do that because I need to offer advice to give hugs) and I think I repress that more when I'm around people.


Feel free to ask me questions. Thanks guys!

And get accused of being lazy and useless, while trying to iterate through possible solutions. Yeah.

I agree that the answers seem very consistent with INTP. Sounds like a great place to start.

Ni. Making subjective internal associations, in your own world, removed of the immediate awareness, or external world. (As an Ni user does) (I.e. “I like b/w photos to start with.”, “very minimalist which I also like”, etc - a lot of magical and unrelated associations, often associated in your own subjective mind and experiences)

2. You are with a group of people in a car, heading to a different town to see your favourite band/artist/musician. Suddenly, the car breaks down for an unknown reason in the middle of nowhere. What are your initial thoughts? What are your outward reactions?

I'd also be slightly annoyed we might miss the concert.
Ni. “Oh great the car is broken” - a subjective (unshared) thought process of your own associated causally in your thought process to the next event (“I would laugh out of surprise” - it’s relevance is in the subjective world, not the external world)

And Fe. Focus is supported by an emphasis on your relationships to others, what the event means to the group, rather than merely the individual person in the subjective experience.(“I’d be annoyed, we might miss the concert”).

This statement “I know nothing about cars, but I will try to help out in fixing it” shows an inferior/tertiary Thinking function (particularly in relation to Introverted Thinking - often dedicated to “logical reasons” behind phenomena, and subjective logic) - for example, there is a weakness where you are not asking, “why would I help fix a car, if** I don’t have any knowledge regarding fixing cars?”. You are not submitting your focus to a clear logical process.
(Although, such a process I still ultimately more helpful for the situation, it still does not show the thought process of Ti)

Secondary Fe. (“I value debate”, in the sense that debate brings people together, and help support bridges connections and promote social harmony - “I enjoy questioning people who have thoughts different to my own” —> debate is viewed as being “challenged” or offended in some way (I.e. muttering “what?” under one’s breath”)

Secondary Fe. Concealing one’s own view for others, or for sake of social harmony. (and focus is on “adjusting” to relationship instead - Ti users would be baffled by such a concept as they have inferior Fe, accuracy of the truth of a conclusion, is more important than adjustment to a relationship/clash)

Fe, I both aware of my own value and “enjoy” and perceive them in others that I know. (“Others are also part of my internal value system”). All such values bring groups together, and are not subjective to the individual (i.e. humour, musician, religion, kindness)


”I’d liked to heard by other people in conversation” very common INFJ response . They are quiet and feel pressure to conform to social harmony.

First two statements are Ni, (very difficult to communicate, internal associations related to the world, and relationships, a process of information processing) and 10) is Fe(breaks down at fear of being judged by others ) and tertiary Ti and Se (“I’m not touchy and don’t participate too much in the overstimulating sensory environment, and don’t enjoy the sensory details of Mymensingh environment and situations or immediate awareness of an experience with others”) . Tertiary Ti makes misinterpretations about the “subjective logic” or “reason” behind the occurrence, “I think I repress more when I’m with people - it’s my relationships with others causing me to be this way based on x y z, and therefore, the likelihood of a b c”. That’s inferior Ti.


INFJ 5w6 (i.e. there is a sense of dissociation or fear of being “overwhelmed” , you get over once, you start to question “why” and gain more insights into relationships or other associations you have made regarding the world)

Wow thanks everyone and thanks xraydav!

That's really helpful! I did post in the what's my type forum but barely got an answer, yours is much better! So I thought I'd just post in the forum I thought I felt I related to most :)
