Helloooo personality cafe,

I have been lurking on this forum for who even knows how long, and I decided I should join. I like you guys!

About me? I'm a Ni/Ti dominant INFJ I think? I work in the sciences. Can switch between using my right brain and left quite well I think. I can even translate things from a F- right brain perspective to a T- Left brain one usually, #skills haha

If I had to describe myself as a color, I would choose red. I mostly stay in the pink and fuzzy spectrum of red - all smiles and empathy, but if you manage to get on my bad side, the red can either be the color of flames or dark blood. No person has managed to get there, but a lot of concepts or events can easily. (Anyone else want to color define themselves?)

Also moved around a lot, so that chameleon feature that people talk about with INFJs is REALLY well developed in me :wink:

Not really shy.... just secretive/shy about allllll my feelings. All of them. So I might come off as shy? Somehow still an authentic and open person most of the time. Maybe. I don't really know? I may be an alien. It's possible.

From the US. Love memes and bad puns.

AND last but not least, I like organizing people and helping them out!! Another reason to join. Yay. Okay, that's enough excitement for today. I'm exhausted now.

There was a study done on brain activity of different types. Result was that as two near opposite types (ISTP - INFJ or ISFP - INTJ) grow older, it becomes extremely hard to tell them apart because they show same brain activity

Oh, deep questions! I view each personality type as a pattern of related qualities. In complexity science, we might say your type is a strange attractor. In practice this means, while many combinations of function use or other qualities are possible, in practice there are "gravitational pulls" toward to certain spaces that are notably sustainable. With regard to the functions, I believe a healthy adult needs at least two functions in play most of the time. Why? Because we're all pretty much tasked to do extraverting and introverting, perceiving and judging. We need a minimum of two functions to cover those bases. For example, Ni with Te. (Those happen to be my preferences, represented as INTJ). After those two, my research suggests that the second most common pattern is our near-opposite personality type, say ISFP for INTJ. That's Fi + Se. As I look at the brain activity of midlife adults now in my lab, and not just college students, I see this more than ever. I've had two midlife INFJs. Could hardly tell if they are INFJ or ISTP. Because personality is a pattern, and people are organic and messy, I think it's inevitable that we express aspects of all 8 functions, though not always consciously or effectively. With regard to individualism: I distinguish between brain and psyche. I associate individualist with cognitive aspects of the P3 and F8 regions of the neocortex, which aren't necessarily type related, but brain related. I can say much more about this.....
After contrasting the three ISFPs, I wondered how their brain activity, taken as a whole, compared to the other fifteen types? I searched for their nearest statistical neighbor in terms of brain activity. Here’s what I found: ISFP and INTJ were most similar to each other. Also most similar to each other were ESFP and ENTJ, ENFP and ESTJ, ENTP and ESFJ, and so forth, for ten of the sixteen types. Had I a larger sample size, might I have found this result for all sixteen? This result suggests one’s “near opposite” type is very close cognitively even when it may feel very far in our conscious lives. Moreover, since these lab participants were all young adults ages eighteen to twenty-five, the evidence suggests that we possess the resources needed for type development from early on, even if we start the developmental process later in life. Finally, the Jungian hierarchy likely has truth to it, even if imperfect. We cannot rely solely on pencil-paper sorters. The brain also points to who we are..
