Well, I thought I was an INTP, but a friend of mine suggested that I was more of an INFJ.
I realize how arbitrary the mbti is, but just for the sake of labeling.
Also, I am bipolar, and I don't know how to take that into effect with the mbti.


1) What aspect of your personality made you unsure of your type?
A friend did not believe that I was an INTP.

2) What do you yearn for in life? Why?
Harmony, then knowledge.

3) Think about a time where you felt like you were at your finest. Tell us what made you feel that way.
Walking through the woods in the coldest part of the winter. I don't know why, that made me feel finest, I guess because I was able to think without any distractions.

4) What makes you feel inferior?
Screwing up on something basic at work. Especially after someone told me to do that task to begin with.

5) What tends to weigh on your decisions? (Do you think about people, pro-cons, how you feel about it, etc.)
It depends. If I am thinking about a theoretical topic within my own mind, then I analyze and organize the idea. But if the decision is about the outer physical world, I use my instinct. I realize this sounds contradictory, but with the physical world, I feel that there are too many stressors and unknown knowledge to truly make an objective decision. And on top of that, too much is lost transferring concrete information through my senses into my mind.

6) When working on a project what is normally your emphasis? Do you like to have control of the outcome?
I try to do what ever is helpful to most people when doing a project -- if possible.


7) Describe us a time where you had a lot of fun. How is your memory of it?
There are a lot of times where I've had fun, but I guess would be last week when I was discussing (or mainly listening) to my older sister about her bizarre ideas.

8) When you want to learn something new, what feels more natural for you? (Are you more prone to be hands on, to theorize, to memorize, etc)
Definitely theorize. Anything else I end up forgetting, zoning out, or making a critical mistake.
If I do not understand the general idea behind something I won't truly understand it.

9) How organized do you to think of yourself as?
Fairly organized. My room would be an exception, but my car, work area, etc, are clean.

10) How do you judge new ideas? You try to understand the principles behind it to see if they make sense or do you look for information that supports it?
If the general idea makes sense then new information would be unnecessary.


11) You find harmony by making sure everyone is doing fine and belonging to a given group or by making sure that you follow what you believe and being yourself?
Again, it depends. If it is at work, then the first one. If I am socializing, as rare as that may be, then the second.

12) Are you the kind that thinks before speaking or do you speak before thinking? Do you prefer one-on-one communication or group discussions? One-to-one.

13) Do you jump into action right away or do you like to know where are you jumping before leaping? Does action speaks more than words?
Yes, I want to know what I am doing.

14) It's Saturday. You're at home, and your favorite show is about to start. Your friends call you for a night out. What will you do?
If I have the show recorded, then it is no big deal, I will go hang out.

15) How do you act when you're stressed out?
I try to be apologetic and polite if I am working with others. If that does not work, then I will shut down and turn into a robot.

If I am by myself, I will try to rationalize as much as possible.


16) What makes you dislike the personalities of some people?
People who are difficult to read are extremely annoying.
Controlling is frustrating as well.

17) Is there anything you really like talking about with other people?
Theology, philosophy, politics, economics, dreams.

18) What kind of things do pay the least attention to in your life
Social status is probably the least important for me.

19) How do your friends perceive you? What is wrong about their perception? ? What would your friends never say about your personality? relaxed,helpful, a bit creepy. Also said I am an INFJ, which I do not see, but that is why I am here.

20) You got a whole day to do whatever you like. What kind of activities do you feel like doing?
I would probably watch conspiracy documentaries, or go to the library.

It would be helpful if you expanded upon this. Also describe what you're like when you get stressed out or are at your worst. All I can tell from your post is that you have a Fe/Ti preference (and you favor Fe).

I am objective when I am not stressed.
But when stressed, all rationality is gone, and does not work. It feels like I do not have time analyze within my own mind, so the physical world can only be organized through intuition/feeling. I don't know I am guessing.

The reason why it seems I favor Fe is because I was already certain of my Introverted Thinking, this is more of an exploration of the Fe function. ( As suggested by my friends )
