I doubted my type about five hundred times. I didn't gain confidence in my typing until after having studied the cognitive functions enough to completely rule out anything else as my dominant and secondary functions.How did everyone figure out what they were exactly?
Tests are only useful in giving a starting point for investigating your type. Taking tests (and reading bad descriptions) was how I went through multiple types. Your mood, health, etc can influence your choices each day, plus how well you know how the test "works." Although, you might try the cognitive functions test to see how your functions rank and to get an idea of what illustrates each function.So i just took it again...and i got INFJ...
This is becoming more and more amusing... hmmm.
This is a helpless topic, lol...
I have a feeling i can only come up with the answer...still interesting to see others in the same situation.
A lot of people seem to be very much N or S, T or F, and so on, and I think the descriptions tend to reflect that. People can mature (and do so at different rates) and develop their weaker functions as they get older. You can be an INTP (or ENTP, for me), but still have developed your feeling. It's really what your preference is most of the time. (Although, from what I've read, J/P is quite a difference, more so than changes in the other letters.) I'm an ENTP with a good dose of SF, so I don't identify with parts of the ENTP descriptions.Okay well this all helped...
I'm starting to think that i am an INTP...
But i tend to not be as cold as the descriptions seem to make an INTP..so that is where it gets confusing..
One of the sites say i could be an assassin..
I am quite an emotional/feeling person...i think.
Then again there is probably something im missing with these descriptions..
Meanwhile i guess i'll keep trying to figure this out...
Yep, this is only way to become sure of your type. Takes a bit of time researching, but afterwards you'll know for sure.Pro-tip: Do not go by descriptions!
The best way to determine your type is to study the cognitive functions.
maybe im more INXJ then ^^, as to overanalysing stated by marked174, do remember that INFJ's are overanalytical themselves, that mixture of Fe and logical Ni creates a need to know it from all angles ^^I think to decide between feeler and thinker is this: Ask yourself WHY do you give advice and support to people that ask for it? That's how I figured out i'm a thinker. If someone has a problem, i gladly help, not because I care about them necessarily but i think i'm very good at seing things objectively and rationally. Not that i'm showing off but that's just how my mind works, it analyzes things, sees the solution and then i say it. I see people as things, things with problems that i need to solve, i don't give hugs or compliments, i give advice. i almost enjoy when someone has a problem and they come to me, it gives me something to analyze, compare, contrast, and help with a solution. feelers give hugs, pats on the back, and emotional support like "oh, it's gonna be ok" and "i know you can do it" type things, i just say it how i see it and most of the time i don't realize how "cold" i come off. but i know no other way, i don't know how to sugarcoat things, and don't even wanna know.
And J vs P, i think the main difference is...do you need to get to conclusions and can't stop thinking about a subject and analyzing it until you get to a conclusion and then can move on? OR do you just think about it, and are ok if you can't get to the bottom of it? I couldn't sleep at night when I couldn't figure out my type , I just NEEDED to get to a conclusion. Even if the type doesn't describe everything about a person, for some reason I just needed to know. I think that's the J in me. I would think P's will think ...well, sometimes I can be more like this, maybe i'm both, who cares, i'm an individual....maybe, i don't know. my opinion.
