I'm so confused. I've been getting typed(both tests and typers) as ISFP, INFP, ENTP, ENFP, ISFJ. What am I anymore? Here I go again. Got this questionnaire from an outside source but added some picture questions.

1. During your youth (7'ish to 18), What did you focus on the most? What activities did you like and why? What aspect of life was lax in attention?

I was a pretty creative kid. The first dream job I remember was being a writer, and I loved sharing my journal to the class. I liked fairies for a while. :p I made up random fairy characters, played with imaginary fairies at recess, and I remember making wands out of straws to share at school. Yeah, I also was very crafty, buying random craft kits at Walmart and making my own jewelry. I got into drawing later on, and in high school cosplay and cake decorating. I liked reading about different subjects, mostly cats and different countries. I kinda wanted to be internet famous-making memes, fangirling, making YouTube videos. I was a big gamer too! I liked all sorts of games, but today I'm mostly attracted to RPGs because of being able to navigate a fantasy world. What was lax would be organization, from my messy locker to my poor time management skills. I mostly focused on being creative, my grades(burnout gifted kid here!), and social skills because I wasn't always good at making friends.

2. You're in you senior year of high school (or whatever equivalent) and you are looking back over the last couple of years. What was your favorite aspect of the schooling experience and why? Favorite subject and why?

My favorite subjects were cultural(social studies & foreign languages). Of course I've always been interested in different cultures and I would love to travel. Plus, history is neat because while I'm not as interested in stuff like war, it's just fascinating seeing what life was like back then in comparison to now. How did people act? What entertainment did they have? When was ___ invented? They were my best subjects too. I think with languages it was because I was good with picking up patterns. What did I like best? Hmm, probably the clubs. Especially Latin Club. I won lots of medals, we camped out, we dressed up. Even now, I'm in culinary club and art club at college.

3. A couple of friends call and invite you out to a restaurant. While there, you all are pleasantly conversing and one of your friends makes a comment that irked you. What are you're thoughts and how do you respond?

What kind of comment? Are they insulting me? Are they making some political statement? I don't really like to argue, so I'll probably just stay quiet. Inside I'll seem more upset, especially if it's an insult. I'm pretty tolerant towards(most) opposing beliefs though. For me for the most part, I say have your beliefs, but if the statement directly hurts someone, we got a problem. I enjoy a good debate from time to time, but I'd rather not upset the peaceful dinner right now.

4. Your schooling is done and it's time to strike out into the world!! What sort of career do you want to go into and why?

It's a tossup between graphic designer and chef. Chef because cooking is art on a plate, tastes good of course, and I get to use ingredients from different cultures(since I want to travel). For graphic design, I get to be creative, and it's fascinating getting to make my own t-shirts, stickers, mugs, stuff like that. I'm interested in the photography aspect too-capturing the moment, playing with contrast to create the right mood and aesthetic.

5. A friend is getting married and they put you in charge of the cake. You narrowed it down to two places to make an order. The first is a bakery with whom you got a good relationship with. The other is a well-known cake maker to whom everyone goes to (your friend hints to it as well). Which one do you choose and why?

The second one. It's my friends' cake, and if that's what they want, that's what they get. Plus, the foodie part of me would be simply curious what treats this famous baker has to offer.

6. You get into an argument with a friend/family member/co-worker. They criticize one of your personality traits. What would most likely be the focus of their critique?

Pshh, probably my passivity. That summarizes what people criticize me the most about. I'm one of those people who doesn't ask for much and usually deals with problems on their own. I can be pretty indecisive, which causes me to go along with what other people are doing. Even when I'm decisive, I'm pretty go with the flow anyway.

7. It's New Years! You and your friends are out and about after a party. Being drunk, one of your friends suggests to do something....'questionable' (Nothing serious. I.e, drugs, escort, etc.). What are your thoughts and how do you respond?

Why was I at a party? Not much of a party person. Too many people and too much noise. Anyway, hmm, I'd rather not get super high or something. Plus, the person is drunk, and I don't want to do anything that might hurt them the next day. Might do some more mild things if they don't hurt anyone else.

8. A new art gallery opens up and your friend wants to go to the grand opening. Both of you analyze all the paintings and sculptures. What about these works warrants the most attention from you? Why?

Probably anything that evokes a feeling in me. I'm often drawn to nature scenes like those with rain and snow because they have such a peaceful vibe. I also really like vintage pieces, but I'd usually go to a museum for that.

9. You have been saving up and decide to buy a new car. At the dealership, you peruse the lots. What are the criteria and factors that influence your choice? Which one would initially be your main focus?

Is it cheap? Really though, I'd realistically be going for a used car as long as it did it's job. I don't really care about brands or stuff like, I just want to have good mileage so I can go far. Good leg room would be nice, also while not my main focus(at least with cars, I'd like it to look nice. Me and my vintage would be cool to have a vintage model. But as much as I like art, I'm focusing more on how well this things run. Tbh I'm not an expert on cars though.

10. Yep, you now have a kid (sex of your choosing)! Years pass and they are now 15 years old. You notice their personality traits are the complete opposite of how you were when at their age. Describe how they are. Describe the possible conflicts that would arise between both of you due to differing temperaments.nd surroundings?

This kid would be very loud and brash. I think our biggest conflict would be that he's close-minded, as I like to try new things and am tolerant of other peoples' differences. He would be more assertive and upfront than me, which isnt neccesarily a bad thing. He would be athletic, as I am clumsy. More serious than me probably; while I often keep calm, I can be a big goofball.

11) Study these two images here and here. Which one do you prefer and why? How would you describe it?

They're both lovely, but I lean towards the croissant one. I think it's because it reminds me of me, how I like to sit in quaint cafes and enjoy a crazy coffee drink and pastry. Also, I like how the red pops against the white, and the pattern on the woman's dress reminds me of snow. Reminds me of poinsettias in winter. The cream color of the drink and the soft browns are also relaxing colors. But yeah, the ocean one is nice too. The green light in the corner makes me imagine aliens are coming down to Earth, the orange is soothing, and I'm imagining the water against my toes.

12) Click on the image below and pay close attention to the things that jump out to you, objects, thoughts, feelings, impressions, ideas etc. What do you see?

It looks CGI! I'm imagining this as the set of some sort of animal movie. Maybe some animals are top looking for food or other animals down below. I like this image with the contrast of light and dark. There's the tiny bright green trees/bushes against the more dreary barren trees, the bright round rocks transcending into spooky spikes. I feel like the lake could be on the logo of a film production company.

More questions:

What is your learning style? What kind of learning environments do you struggle with most? Why do you like/struggle with these learning styles? Do you prefer classes involving memorization, logic, creativity, or your physical senses?

I'm pretty good with visual and kinesthetic learning, not as much audio. Like I can remember songs well, but lectures are rough, I space out a lot. With hands on learning, unless I have no idea what I'm doing, I'd rather say, throw ingredients together rather than follow a recipe. I prefer classes with creavity, although I don't mind memorization, especially with Quizlet games.

What's important to you and why?

My best friends, my pets. Trying new things, since variety is the spice of life. Being open-minded is probably my most important value, and that applies to being tolerant of other peoples' beliefs and differences as well as the trying new things. Being healthy physically and mentally and being at peace. Also, creating peace in my environment. Appreciating the little things in life, like a cup of hot chocolate or a cool rainy day.

Are you artistic? If yes, describe your art? If you are not particular artistic but can appreciate art please likewise describe what forums of art you enjoy. Please explain your answer.

I'm pretty artistic. I am majoring in graphic design and am in art club in school. I dabble in different things when the inspiration strikes-cake decorating, drawing, 3D pen design. Lately I've been into making moodboards. I also like to be fashionable. I'm pretty good at drawing, mostly people though, and am good at most crafts except for things like knitting. I definitely appreciate art too-like film, especially Stubio Ghibli because of the whimsy. Calligraphy, moodboards, digital art, a bunch of stuff.

How do you act when others request your help to do something (anything)? If you would decide to help them, why would you do so?

Help them! I just enjoy feeling useful and being generous, making other people happy

What do the "highs" in your life look like?

Smiling for no reason, seeing the beauty in things, being full of inspiration, being productive and ambitious.

What do the "lows" in your life look like?

I isolate myself and fret over past events. I get less productive and see the point in things less in less. I become more suspicious of people's motives.

What is your relation with movement and your surroundings? For instance do you prefer a sport or outdoors event? If an outdoors event what is it? And why? If not what type of activities do you tend to engage in?

Welp, I'm dreadful at most sports. But I do like some outdoor activities. I simply like taking walks in nature, checking out all the unique plants and little creatures. I like gardening so I can grow those plants, plus I like swinging on swings. For indoor activities, I listen to music a lot. I kinda just daydream to the beat while dancing around the house. There's the cooking, gaming. I like TV shows like Food Network competitions, cartoons like Steven Universe and Total Drama, The Good Doctor and other medical shows, and some animes. I like to read too. It could be me soaking up a topic I'm interested. Right now it's MBTI, and I also like to read about nutrition, other psychology stuff, and history. Fiction wise, I gear towards historical fiction and fantasy.

It's more of a tossup between ISFJ, INFP, and ISFP right now. Thanks!
