I did a test some time ago, and it resulted me being a type 2. Surely, I do have many characteristic that are compatible. But today reading about 4s, I realized I have some of their characteristics too. Could I be mistyped??

Is there a more specific test that I can do?

Thanks

What is more important to you: being loved by others, or being authentic?
As a 4 I know thats my type, absolutely no doubt about it. We go through a lot of self-torment but we do it on purpose as if we are masochists searching for a deeper truth, and when we seem to find it, or stop looking because it was there all along, we realize its all a beautiful satire and we revel in the freedom from our self-consciousness.
If you understand anything of what I just said you might be a 4. Hell I wouldn't know.

Hmm I understood it partially. I can relate on looking for a deeper truth, but I dont feel like being masochist or giving such passion about that. At least not in general terms.

I like being authentic but if people love me for being in that way.. Even better.

I have a 4 wing and a 2 fix and like you, I am also an INFJ, which complicates things because both INFJs and 2s value external harmony. It's important for me to be authentic but I define that in Fe terms as opposed to Fi criteria: To me, authenticity is communicating in such a way that the other person not only understands me but does not disrupt harmony.

Basically, what you need to ask yourself is: Which is MORE important to you? maintaining harmony and good feelings or sticking to your guns, no matter what the emotional cost?

It's more important maintaining harmony. When I hadn't be capable of doing it, usually I withdrawal on myself, instead of fighting about that.

I retake a quest today. My results:

Type 2 - 8.3
Type 4 - 6.7
Type 6 - 5.7
Type 5 - 5.7
Type 1 - 5.7
Type 3 - 5
Type 9 - 4.3
Type 8 - 4
It seems like Im really close of being a 4 too lol.

Well, I guess you have your answer then. ^_^. I just looked at your sig and you can't have a double heart fix; so instead of 2w1 6w5 4w5; based on that test anyway; you should be a 2w1 6w5 1w?

I wouldn't just rely on one test 'though cuz it seemed that you had several E types with 6.5; so I'm not sure what order or whether or not, you'd be a 5 or 6 head fix.

That's the part Ive always had problems with. How determine which are my wings, etc-- if they're pretty close together.

Well, I think you lean to 2w1 over 2w3 but you should read the descriptions of both 1 and 3, to be certain. As for the rest of your tritype; the wings aren't as important and I would think it's better to get a clear handle on your core first, before you worry too much about your other fixes' wings.
