Guess who came back to the "Type me" thread? I've become fairly comfortable typing xNFP, but have had a lot of debate over whether I'm an ENFP or an INFP. I'm pretty open to any suggestions, whether they be for a different enneagram typing, mbti typing, socionics typing (ect.), but I'm primarily looking for certainty with mbti and/or socionics (this is a socionics questionaire after all, but I think you can apply it to the other systems). You don't have to read the whole thing or give a long winded analysis (unless you feel so inclined to do so, and also the chicken question is section 7 is fairly interesting), but reasoning for your decision might be helpful.

Edit: The socionics questionaire is structured so that each section represents a different cognitive function. If you're going to skim (which I somewhat encourage) read one question from each of the different sections or read Tipos because that's far shorter

Socionics questionaire
 
I
1. How do you work? Why do people go to work? Are there any parameters that determine whether you can do work or not? What are they?

At my best I work very hard and all at once, trying hard to ensure that the end result is of high quality. I work alone preferably, as working with others makes me feel out of control. Most people go to work because they must earn money in order to provide for themselves and their families, so for survival. I can work in almost any situation, but I am only motivated if someone else asks me to do the work. If the only reason to work is because I want something, the task will never be complete (at least in a timely manner). Obligation is my best motivator.

2. How do you determine the quality of work? How do you determine the quality of a purchase? Do you pay any attention to it?
I guess that depends on what kind of work, because I'm going to "grade" an essay differently than I would the work of someone who volunteered. Generally, I determine the quality of work based upon what the task was and how close the resultant came to accomplishing the task. With purchases, I look at the overall quality of the item (mostly durability because I tend to break everything), but also the price at which it is being purchased. "Does it make sense to pay $x for item a?" I do pay a lot of attention to such things.

3. There is a professional next to you. How do you know they are a professional? How do you evaluate their skill?

I really don't unless they show or tell me (unless they are wearing some tag or something that specifically indicates they are a professional. Similarly to the above, I evaluate their skill based on their ability to accomplish a given task, but also look at how easily/efficiently they accomplish the task.

4. If you struggle to do something, how do you fix that? Do you know if your performance is better or worse than others?
I usually either keep trying till I cannot try any more to make whatever I'm doing easier or I throw in the towel quickly. I'm pretty keen at noticing how good/bad my performance is comparatively to others, however I'll usually underrate myself.

5. How do you measure the success of a job? What standard do you use? Do you pay attention to it? When should you deviate from this standard?
Review the above responses. I do pay attention to this. The standard I use is pretty general and can apply to many things, but should be deviated upon when things require subjective interpretation.

II

1. What is a whole? Can you identify its parts? Are the parts equivalent to the whole?
Wow this question couldn't be any more vague. A whole is sort of a generality, a combination of many small things to make one great thing. I can identify it's parts if I want to. While putting the parts together make a whole, the whole can sometimes be better or worse than it's parts if you look at it contextually. Sometimes the parts on their own are useless until you put them all together.

2. What does “logical” mean? What is your understanding? Do you think that it correlates with the common view? How do you know you are being logical?
Logical means sensible, or driven by the facts. At times logic can be something that is commonly viewed, but often times it deviates from common "logic" or sense. I know I'm being logical if I am considering the big picture rather than small details which may bias my senses.

3. What is hierarchy? Give examples of hierarchies. Do you need to follow it? Why or why not? Explain how hierarchy is used in a system you are familiar with.
A hierarchy is a system which revolves around the perceived roles of beings within the hierarchy. You have hierarchy in the job/business field (Manager->executive->employee), the education sphere, and even the social sphere (cast system, wage system). Hierarchy is useful sometimes to follow, and at other points not. In the work field it's somewhat important, because the hierarchy sort of separates the tasks, making the work organism more efficient, and in the education field keeps people under control and working. Still, it can sometimes be too stiff, allowing ideas and people to get crushed by the weight of those considered "above them." A hierarchy can be useful if their is mutual respect for one another regardless of their position within the hierarchy.

4. What is classification? How does classification work? Why is it needed and where is it applied? Give examples.
A classification is the separation of ideas,objects, ect. into different groups based on common properties, uses, ect. Examples would be the food pyramid, which classifies the health of food based upon what benefits/detriments they have on the human body. It is needed almost everywhere, and helps one make generalities in order to solve problems more quickly or understand things at a higher level.

5. Are your ideas consistent? How do you know they are consistent? How do you spot inconsistency in others’ ideas?
I'd imagine not but honestly... I'm not sure how I would tell if they were. I guess if they yield the same results over time or they revolve around relatively the same topics, they'd be consistent. You can tell if someone's ideas are consistent by comparing them to each other and breaking them apart.

III
1. Can you press people? What methods do you use? How does it happen?

Others can, but I cannot seem to do so.

2. How do you get what you want? What do you do if you have to work to get what you want?
Depends on what I want. I usually ask or put in the work myself to get what I want. Occasionally, I can persuade others to get it for me/do the work for me, but that's not a nice thing to do so I usually don't. If I have to work, than I have to work. Work doesn't bother me unless what I want isn't worth the work.

3. How do you deal with opposition? What methods do you use to defend your interests?
Opposition makes me curious, and I'll usually question the opposition to see why they feel it is appropriate to oppose me. I could always be in the wrong, you never know. I defend my interests verbally if I must, or I just ignore the opposition.

4. When do you think it’s ok to occupy someone’s space? Do you recognize it?
When they tell me I can (verbally/non verbally). I don't usually recognize this easily, although I generally don't like to get in people's space.

5. Do others think you are a strong-willed person? Do you think you have a strong will?
Yes, primarily because I have a lot of endurance and don't back down easily from a challenge I'd like to face. I don't think I have a strong will though, because I am somewhat easy going and often to cautious to exert my will.

IV
1. How do you satisfy your physical senses? What examples can you give? What physical experiences are you drawn to?

...By eating and finding a safe environment? I don't have many urges generally, so it's not hard to satisfy my physical senses. I'm drawn to physical experiences that bring me somewhere balanced between indulgence and deprivation. Moving towards either end of the spectrum makes me really uncomfortable.

2. How do you find harmony with your environment? How do you build a harmonious environment? What happens if this harmony is disturbed?
By isolating myself or finding a place that seems secure. I don't actively try to build a harmonious environment unless I feel overwhelmed, in which case I leave the discomfort.

3. What does comfort mean to you? How do you create it?

Security, by not doing/trying things that are going to kill me.

4. How do you express yourself in your hobbies? How do you engage yourself with those things?

Yikes what hobbies? They're mostly just an expression of feelings or a release. My hobbies are a means to regain focus primarily. I engage more mentally than physically with my hobbies, as many of them (outside of playing music) involve more thinking than anything else.

5. Tell us how you’d design any room, house or an office. Do you do it yourself, or trust someone else to do it? Why?
Even as an artist I’m not really design savvy (my drawings actually tend to be either too saturated in color or too bland), and the way I would design a room would be based upon its purpose. Generally, regardless of what I do, my designing tends to be color coordinated. If it were an office, I’d try to make the room neutral in color and bland in design, as to not create many distractions, maybe add something quirky like a tea box to hold pencils or something. If it were my room or something, maybe I’d have a lot of wood. I’ve had a weird urge to build a glass eye lamp (not real glass eyes, like clear one’s with colored irises so light to flow through in different colors), so I suppose my house would have a bunch of “weird knick knacks.”

V
1. Is it acceptable to express emotions in public? Give examples of inappropriate expression of emotions.

Depends on the scenario. Sometimes it is, other times it isn’t, personally I don’t like to express them unless it’s joy or concern. Crying in public isn’t ok (for only me, it’s fine for other people) unless you’re at a funeral. Laughing at funerals also is pretty inappropriate, although it’s understandable to do in private if that’s how you express your pain.

2. How do you express your emotions? Can you tell how your expressions affect others in a positive or negative way?

While I try to keep my emotions within, usually they are very visible to others and somewhat outwardly expressed (excluding anger and annoyance, which I try to make visible and no one notices). In my healthier/more natural states, I express emotion, especially fear, through art or verbal communication because doing so makes me feel more comfortable. Currently, I have a lot of physical “tics” that are used to express emotion. The expression of my emotions doesn’t seem to affect people at all, except for my joy which can sometimes annoy people.

3. Are you able to change your demeanor in order to interact with your environment in a more or less suitable way? How do you determine what is suitable?
Somewhat, although it’s not easy. I’m a bit slow to social cues, so I try to keep the seem polite, reserved, cerebral deposition when I am around most people (outside of immediate family). I’m capable of manipulation and persuasion, but don’t usually engage in this unless I really need to because it makes me feel bad. I determine what’s suitable through cues.

4. In what situations do you feel others’ feelings? Can you give examples of when you wanted to improve the mood of others?
I’m pretty good at empathising with others, it’s fairly easy to put myself into other’s shoes unless they’re behaving ridiculously. Still, I’ve had a lot of practice because my mom has pretty bad depression/ptsd. I’m always looking to make things better for her, especially when she feels particularly bad. I try to improve mood by listening to her speak and bringing her out into the world and pointing out the good and beautiful things surrounding or agreeing with her viewpoints and sympathising with her.

5. How do others’ emotions affect you? How does your internal emotional state correlate or contrast with what you express?
I’m pretty good at separating my emotions from others emotions even if I can understand and feel them. They don’t affect me unless they are extremely negative, in which case I try to help and make them less negative. My internal emotional state is pretty contrasting to what I express, because I have a tendency to be incredibly uneasy and testy which outwardly seeming easygoing and open. I don’t actually try to be like this, it sort of just happens.

VI
1. How can you tell how much emotional space there is between yourself and others? How can you affect this space?

I usually can’t, so I just go with my gut (which in retrospect isn’t smart). It’s really nice when people give out clue about the level of intimacy they feel towards me in an obvious way, because this makes it easier to judge and more comfortable. I’m not great at affecting the space, although I have mastered creating distance between myself and others. Slowly ween interaction and the distance will increase.

2. How do you determine how much you like or dislike someone else? How does this affect your relationships?
….Usually I feel just about the same about everyone? I guess I judge how much I like or dislike someone based on the amount of joy/comfort/stimulation I get when I am around them. I don’t think this has a huge affect on the relationship, although people tend to be bothered by how distant I can be.

3. How do you move from a distant relationship to a close one? What are the distinguishing characteristics of a close relationship?
A truly intimate/close relationship implies that you can talk to that person about anything and everything without feeling discomfort (at least ideally), and in turn that person can do the same with you, as well provide commentary/opinions about your life/decisions without you getting touchy about it. Distance to intimacy sort of just depends on the amount of interaction the two people have. A change from distance to closeness sort of just happens overtime I suppose?

4. How do you know that you are a moral person? where do you draw your morality from? Do you believe others should share your beliefs on what’s moral? Why?
I suppose I am moral because I am not actively causing harm to anything that I know of currently? Of course, we all draw our morality/values to some degree from our culture, environment, and from the ones we hold dear. There is, of course, also a subjective interpretation of what we feel is right or wrong based on the experiences we’ve been given. I don’t think others would have a problem with what I find moral or not for the most part, others are likely to share at least some of my morality.

5. Someone you care about is acting distant to you. How do you know when this attitude is a reflection of your relationship?
Again, I likely don’t unless they flat out tell me the problem. I try to actively communicate to experiment, to see if they try to avoid me. If they do, it’s likely a reflection of our relationship.

VII
1. How can you tell someone has the potential to be a successful person? What qualities make a successful person and why?

Everyone has the potential to be a successful person in some form or another. You look at their talents and skill set to see in which areas they would be successful. Usually, motivated, patient, hardworking,adaptable, creative, and “people oriented” people are what stereotypically is viewed to make a person successful. This is because success is usually linked to the sphere of business in pop culture for some reason.

2. Where would you start when looking for a new hobby? How do you find new opportunities and how do you choose which would be best?
I sort of just look at what interests me at the moment and what I am good at/would like to be good at and what materials I have to pursue the hobby. Usually I don’t actively look for new opportunities, they sort of just happen/pop up, and I choose which ones to pursue based on the goals I have for the future and which ones I actually have the skillset to pursue.

3. How do you interpret the following statement: “Ideas don’t need to be feasible in order to be worthwhile.” Do you agree or disagree, and why?
I feel neutrally about this. Ideas are really nice to have, and having them is worthwhile if they give you joy but… Blind idealism really doesn’t get anything done unless there is some feasible way to realize the idea. I’ve watched this sort of idealism hurt a lot of people in the past.

4. Describe your thought process when relating the following ideas: swimming, chicken, sciences. Do you think that others would draw the same or different connections?
Well, immediately I imagined a chicken in a swimming pool with glasses and a lab coat. Then I though about the science of a swimming chicken… Can chickens actually swim? They don’t have webbed feet like water fowl so I don’t know how they’d get anywhere, but neither do dogs and they can swim so that really doesn’t narrow it down. I would imagine that a chicken would float for a while, but then the feathers would eventually weigh them down… I think? **LOOKED UP ANSWER ON GOOGLE** Ah, I suppose experience says that I was right, chickens can not swim. I’m sure other people could make the same connections, mine don’t seem too far off the beaten path.

5. How would you summarize the qualities that are essential to who you are? What kind of potential in you has yet to be actualized and why?
Yikes this is a scary question. I definitely have the potential to do… something? I am ok at music, art, and problem solving, I have a lot of self control, I think I’m fairly intelligent (I have an IQ over -5)... What is essentially me though? Who knows...

VIII
1. How do people change? Can you describe how various events change people? Can others see those changes?
People are always changing and learning and growing with every new experience, person, or object they encounter. Going to school can give people untold amounts of knowledge and change them so they are capable of accomplishing things they couldn’t once before. Abuse can make people fearful and untrusting of society, even if they were an optimist before. Sometimes you can see the changes if you are paying attention.

2. How do you feel and experience time? Can time be wasted? How?
Time to me is something that passes above me. If I’m enjoying myself, time is flying around me but lasting an eternity. If I’m suffering, I can feel every tick of the clock as each agonizing second passes. I guess my time experience relates back to my feelings (which is something I didn’t realize till I wrote it down). The idea that time can be wasted is completely subjective and a human made concept, but to be honest I believe so anyways. If I am doing nothing and just enjoying myself/indulging without a purpose, not working towards something, I consider time wasted.

3. Is there anything that cannot be described with words? What is it? If so, how can we understand what it is if language does not work?
YES. There are so many things that cannot be described in words, such as the colors we see the world that we interpret, the feelings that we feel. I can say that I see red, but what does red mean? Light with 650 nm wavelength? Scientific, but not describing what “red” actually is to you or to others. I can say I am sad and I can cry or I can jump about and say that I am feeling joy about it, but you may never feel the pain that I feel nor the energy that I feel. Can you ensure that anything can be understood even if language exists?

4. How do you anticipate events unfolding? How can you observe such unfoldments in your environment?
As long as you have a decent grasp over cause and effect you can anticipate events. If you make events into systems and use comparative analysis, this sometimes makes it fairly easy to do. I observe them passively? I watch as events unfold, rarely using my will to effect them.

5. In what situations is timing important? How do you know the time is right to act? How do you feel about waiting for the right moment?
Most situations? When crossing the street timing is important, when telling someone you love them timing is important, when enacting a plan timing is often important. You know when it is time to act when you see the cues for action emerge or when you “feel” the time is right. I’m very patient, but I rarely know when it is the right time to act.


Tipo's questionaire
 
Question one. Are you vegan or vegetarian for moral reasons? Is your bedroom messy?
No. Even if I had a moral issue with eating meat, I don't think I would stop eating meat. I try to keep my bedroom clean, but my desks tend to become cluttered as soon as I clean them off. The floor is usually fairly clean so I can walk around the room though.

Question two. Describe your ideal partner.
My ideal partner would be interested more in verbal intimacy than physical intimacy and open to discussions of many types. Hopefully, they would compliment my weaknesses (ie. cooking, relationship skills, handiness, ect.) and I would compliment theirs so that we could both grow as individuals during the process of the relationship. I'd hope that they would enjoy time away from me any wouldn't get overemotional if we didn't talk every single day, but would still have a subtle twinge of romantisism that made the relationship exciting. Hopefully, they wouldn't have the same exact interests or career as me (that'd be boring), but would enjoy learning about what I enjoy as much as I enjoy learning about them. Also I wish for them to have an adventurous pallet when it comes to food...

Question (?) three. Tell me what you like to think about.
I like to think about personality theorem and what personality type others might be (it's like constant problem solving). I like to think up stories and scenarios about how different people would react to different stimulates or how different forms of government or society might effect society as a whole because cause and effect is something that interests me. Creating different story lines based upon this is my primary hobby after all. I enjoy thinking about controversial issues and breaking them down into different perspectives so that they become grey and answer-less.

Question (?) four. Tell me what you love to do.
I don’t love to do anything, I feel pretty neutrally about most things. However, I enjoy playing music because it is a skill that I feel I have acquired through practice. Drawing is fun and also helps me to express superfluous thoughts and regain focus. Walking/hiking has the same therapeutics of drawing and writing, although that helps me get out extra energy as well.


Question five. Are you very ambitious? Do you like to compete? Describe.
I’m fairly ambitious, as deep down I’d like to be the best at something. Success also fuels my ego and erases my insecurities. I’m actually naturally competitive though, unless of course it regards something I hold dear to myself (ie. grades/music). Competing makes me feel bad because sometimes I get overly excited and anxious because of it. Also, competition attracts overly competitive people who sometimes overreact when the loose, and I don’t like dealing with those sort of people.

Question six. What are your friends like? What do you like to do with them?
My closest friends are fairly reserved and introverted if you look at them as a whole. Generally, they are somewhat motivated to complete their work, but are also heavy procrastinators. Most of my closest friends are the type of people who balance intellect/knowledge with artistic means of expression.

Question seven. Do you ever feel as though you wear a mask?
Probably. I have pretty bad social anxiety, so I tend to subdue my personality significantly around others. I pacify myself, and often appear far more easygoing, trustworthy, or nice then I actually am. It scares me how much other people trust me and I’m a mess on the inside, so I guess I am wearing a mask.

Question eight. Are you comfortable with yourself?
Lol probably not. I’m not anxious to please or anything, I just struggle to identify myself. I say I’m one way, then go and defy myself within a minute. I don’t know if it’s just a lack of self knowledge or if I’m actively trying to sabotage myself.

Question nine. Would you ever consider going to a bdsm/sex house?
NO. That’d probably make me fairly uncomfortable (high sensory environment), and also I don’t really have strong urges in that direction.

Question ten. Do you like to perform? Would you ever consider comedy?
I like performing music, but only in a group do to my anxiety. I also enjoy and find comfort in things like public speaking since I enjoy talking, which is sort of like performing. I would never consider comedy though, because I’m not actually funny outside of my death jokes and sarcasm.

Question eleven. Do you like answering questions about yourself such as these?
Only on the internet because it gives me something to procrastinate with. Answering them in real life would be really stressful.

Question twelve. Would you ever yell 'build a wall'? Would you ever say 'woman's rights are human rights'? Do both of these phrases disgust you? Do tell. Questions like these may or may not be used for your typing, depending on your description and explanation.
Maybe, but not in that sort of context. They don’t disgust me, the messages behind these statements just indicates a differing point of view from mine. I’ve spoken before about some degree of focus on our own country or isolationism, since there is a lot internally we need to get a handle on, but I don’t like the idea of “building a wall” and keeping everyone else out. It closes us off to new ideas and doesn’t actually solve the problem it’s trying to address. Why waste money on building a wall that won’t actually work anyways, the country is already in debt. Women's rights are human rights of course, but by saying this you’re almost ignoring the gender inequality that still exists. You can’t just ignore a movement because the repetition of a movement annoys you.

Question thirteen. Are you a good listener? Do you do any of the following? Nod, and smile, say "Aw" and such, don't interrupt? Describe your listening style.
I’m a fairly good listener unless I get too excited (in which case I may or may not accidentally dominate the conversation). I am an affirmative listener, I feel awkward and unengaged if I’m not smiling or nodding to what the other person is saying.

Question fourteen. Would you use a plastic bag or board to kill yourself or someone else?
(Is this asking if I would do this or asking if I’d kill myself or someone else?)
I’d rather not do this, I’d rather not kill anyone. If I had to, I’m sure there are quicker methods of going about it. Guillotines are better. If to choose between myself or others, I suppose myself.

Question five. Romantic comedies?
I prefer psychological thrillers over them, but I don’t mind a romcom every once in awhile. As long as it isn’t annoyingly cheesy or over dramatic or filled with too many sex scenes. Those make me uncomfortable.

Question six. Physics?
Is probably one of the most interesting subjects in science in my opinion (astrophysics is my favorite), but I’m incredibly terrible at it. It’s weird that it’s so challenging, as it describes natural processes in the world like gravity and current flow. Who knew how complicated the world could actually be, it’s sad that we simplify it so often.

Question seven. Farts?
Beans?

Question eight. Do you believe in the importance of exercise and participate daily?
I feel it’s important, and do participate daily. I don’t participate because I think it’s important to my health though. If I don’t exercise I have so much energy I cannot focus, so I often walk every day and hike when I can. Other forms of exercise make me want death.

Question 18.5. Physical examinations? Would you rather have peace or exposed corruption?
Doctors scare me since I have an irrational fear of needles and don’t exactly trust doctors judgement. The medical field is a competition, selling drugs makes the doctor commission...ect. I’d rather have exposed corruption, even if I couldn’t fix it. I could at least fight against it to fool myself that I’m actually making a difference, to fool myself that I’m not just letting a problem overtake me.

Question nineteen. Did you notice any "inconsistencies" in these questions prior to this? Vent here
The question marks in question 3 and 4 really bothered me. I don’t understand what the purpose was putting them there other than to bother people or to get an answer to this question. Also the .5s were sort of weird but there’s worse things than .5s. Farts and physics were sort of out there as they didn’t really ask a question necessitating a response. Nothing bothered me more than the question marks though.

Question 19.5. What did this test remind you of?
All of the millions of other questionaires I filled out. There was another questionaire I saw a while back that was a lot like this except with more irrelevant questions like “farts” on it that I rolled my eyes over. This questionaire was better than that one though.

Question 20. What if someone told you, "Stop eating"?
It depends on the context. They could be warning me about danger within the food like poison or mangos (I’m allergic to those). If not in that context, I’d laugh at them. One of the few things in this world that bring me joy is food, I’m not stopping just because you want me to.

Guess who came back to the "Type me" thread? I've become fairly comfortable typing xNFP, but have had a lot of debate over whether I'm an ENFP or an INFP. I'm pretty open to any suggestions, whether they be for a different enneagram typing, mbti typing, socionics typing (ect.), but I'm primarily looking for certainty with mbti and/or socionics (this is a socionics questionaire after all, but I think you can apply it to the other systems). You don't have to read the whole thing or give a long winded analysis (unless you feel so inclined to do so, and also the chicken question is section 7 is fairly interesting), but reasoning for your decision might be helpful.
So my attention span makes it very difficult for me to get through all of that...which purely stereotypically makes me agree with your N typing, but I'm struggling with seeing the Fi that NFP would give you. You mentioned liking to break things down to where they are 'gray' and no longer black and white. That sounds anti-Fi/Te. You also expressed alot of insecurity in interactions with other people and how they view and generally not understanding who you are.. That sounds more Fe than Fi. Subduing your personality is not really an Fi thing to do. I mean, we all do it to some degree...usually but Fi is more about being true to yourself whereas Fe is more willing to lose themselves for the sake of the group, if you know what I mean. Harmony emphasis.

Thank you for responding. That's understandable, I really didn't expect anyone to get through this all to be honest. It's excessively long, which I only really took into account after posting this and was too lazy to fix it up and wanted to give people the option of looking at a traditionally styled questionaire and a purely cognitive function/socionics based questionaire (which is why I thought it might be useful to include a poll so that it didn't seem quite so intimidating).

While I usually test higher and holistically identify with the Ti-Fe axis rather than the Fi-Te axis, I went with an NFP type (ignoring the fact that everyone suggested it) because I've roughly identified myself as a Feeler who's probably also an N type (although I've typed myself as ISFJ before). I went with Fi-Te because, due to my lack of decisiveness, directness, and organization, low Te seems plausible and I'm somewhat confident that I don't use Ni in a high position (if at all). I don't see myself as very accommodating or aware of social norms the way a Fe user would be, so I figured a Fi user with a 9 core enneatype might explain that. Still, I could see a type on the Ti-Fe axis still being an option since I like the grey zone so much and do tend to be socially subdued.

That's valid. Te is very direct so your use would have to be low if you're using it at all. However, Ti is also not very direct due to Fe tempering it. Although, a Ti that has shut off their Fe might seem a bit more direct, but this would also depend on context. Ti logic is in general less straightforward than Te. Of course since a Ti has no Te, they typically aren't all that organized... at least not to a Te user. I consider myself to be.. organized enough to function.. usually. XD

This combined with the above statement I quoted basically means you're either an Fi dom/aux or a Ti dom/aux because low Fe might not always be aware of social norms. So as a result, some Ti users might be insecure about that because the Fe will give them a desire to conform "somewhat" because they recognize it as important..."somewhat" but they may not feel they have an adequate understanding of the norms or other people's emotions/reactions to do it effectively. Ti users are prone to accidentally stepping on people's toes and then feeling bad about it later cause they recognize the negative response after the fact...and really didn't intend to do something that would provoke a negative response. It was just a lack of their awareness that caused the issue.

You make a good point

I can relate to that to a degree as well, I figure I'm definitely an P type. I'm pretty good at considering peoples emotions if I catch them and tend to be more tactful than anything else, but my lack of social awareness tends manifest in a way that leaves people thinking I like under a rock. Ti vs Fi for me is troublesome to some degree; I have empathy and value being an individual, but my people skills are terrible and I tend to place work over relationships most of the time. I guess you vote TP for my type?

Probably. I hate stating definites. If you've been mistaken for an ENFP, I wonder if it's more likely that you're an ENTP, which would put Fe in your third spot, making you more emotional like an ENFP and therefore easier to mistake. Fe users tend to actually be more outwardly expressive than Fi users.

Understandable (I'm not usually very definite myself). It may be possible that I could be an ENTP rather than an ENFP, I've always sort of aligned myself with the PFTP/PTFP stacking anyways (it makes more sense to me in my head than leading with a T or F function). I'm going to have to look into ENTP again I suppose.
