Hey guys! Just wanted to introduce myself here, since I signed up last night.

I'm in my twenties and have long been interested in all sorts of personality tests. That said, I wasn't really aware of the complexities of the MBTI system until I started poking around on these forums.

I've nearly always tested as INFP-- but sometimes will get the odd INTJ or INTP result, which has been frustrating. Now I understand that these types are quite different (particularly INFP versus INTP) and that the tests can often be inaccurate. I also have lingering doubts that I am actually INFP, and believe that my results may be colored by my neurotic personality and shy, anxious behavioral patterns.

My main motivations for joining this site and exploring the personality assessments are: just my own personal curiosity, and interest in applying this information to figuring out my career goals. I'm looking forward to reading through some of the in-depth explanations of Fi Fe Ne... all that stuff. Started reading a bit last night, but I'm ashamed to say I was a little too tipsy to process it! I'll try again today. ;)

Anyway, guys, hi. Hope to learn a lot here, and maybe make some friends. Just to include one bit of solid information: I'm definitely an enneagram type 5.

Welcome! I'd yell at you for not giving MBTI your full, entire attention, but I don't actually think anyone (including me) takes it that seriously, so ummmm... yay! Tipsy! That is always a good and legitimate excuse.

Thanks! :3 No excuse, just fun. I like your avatar, btw. I haven't read homestuck-- got such a late start it seems impossible to catch up at this point-- but I recognize the characters via friends' blogs and such.

Welcome @katiesusu, hope you find the answers you seek. I find it all pretty confusing although I've always typed as an ENFP, but learning to understand the functions and their implications is very rewarding and fascinating. Enjoy your time here :)

That's a pretty cool little drawing.

And I totally agree about the wishy-washiness of these MBTI tests. Maybe one day I'll take the real one. I think it takes a few hours. Honestly, I'm not even sure how much stock I place in the theory, but it's fun.



Thanks for replying in my thread btw, I owed ya one. :tongue:
