I'm a very confused 18 y/o NTP female. I used to think that I'm an INTP since I did the test a few years ago, but I also got INFP once or twice, plus I also got INTJ many time. But at the moment what I'm sure of is that I'm an xNTP.
The last time I did the keys2cognition test I got ENTP but I was quick to dismiss the idea.

I know that I'm an introvert, and I am an awkward shy person, but I also think that compared to other INTPs I see online, I'm actually kinda outgoing and I do stuff.

Here are a lot of pointers, good luck reading all of this (sorry)

- I never really knew what I wanted to study in the future. Every year I would find something a new interesting thing.
- In grade 12 I decided on computer science and I got accepted into this field. But then I spontaneously decided on medicine just out of sheer curiosity. I just wanted to know whether i would be able to do it or not. I'm a 2nd year medical student now lol. I just knew that if i didn't, I would spend my whole life asking myself if I could have become a good doctor or not.
- As a child I was awkward but I was very friendly around others.
- I loved stories so much, I started reading Agatha Christie's books when I was 8.
- I have a good memory and can some things like scenes or dreams clearly.
- I applied for a position in the student council in my school and I became a vice-president.
- I was forced to give a speech to become a secretary in my college and I did and according to others it was a nice one.
-I'm thinking of becoming president next year, I'm awkward when it comes to interactions but I can still do it.
-In middle school I left my group of friends for the popular ones. I regretted that a few years later and managed to become friends with them again.
-So yeah I was a douchebag who wanted to be popular.
-I relate to the INTP chameleon behavior.
-I like making friends, when the new freshmen came I managed to talk to many of them (though not alone) and I was happy about it.
-After sitting for a long time with others till late at night I can't go straight to bed, I would have to sit and relax by myself and get some alone time.
- However I can't spend a whole day alone, I would have to talk to someone in person.
- when I get stressed, especially during the exams, I would go visit a lot of friends in the dorms.
- I hate very pessimistic or very optimistic ones.
- I'm an optimist pessimist.
- I look forwards to spending time with friends if they were close.
- I like coming up with new ideas (except when we have to brainstorm in class or something my brain shuts down).
- I'm picky about stuff like grammar and proper punctuation and use of words although my English isn't my first language.
- I used to be called a walking encyclopedia or a dictionary by some teachers.
- My friends keep asking me where I keep getting useless trivia from.
- When answering a message or a letter I would break down the message and answer each part separately.
- I can think of all the possible consequences of a particular decision.
- I hate conflict, and because I don't get exposed much to it, I tend to cry a lot.
- I don't mind slightly offending people I don't like much. I might care a bit afterwards and think of apologizing but I won't care later.
- When I meet people for the first time, I either dislike them or I have no feelings towards them.
- I disliked most of my college friends at the beginning.
- My friends joke that I don't like people and I'm cold and mean.
- I slightly dislike people I can't read because their intentions are never clear. However I'm good at reading people.
- I forgive but I never forget.
- I'm a logical person.
- I hate being bound by other people or by a specific routine.
- I walk too fast, or too slow, even with other people like my family or friends I always have my own pace. And I really hate it when they cling to me so I would walk with them.
- I'm independent.
- I volunteer, not because I want to make an impact although that's a plus. I just want to accumulate many experiences in life or do something useful sometimes.
- I'm an info-gatherer. Somehow I always gather info about the people around me even without trying. My friends think I know everyone in the dorms and their room locations, who they are friends with etc. It's all just basic observation.
- I like thinking games.
- Though I procrastinate when it comes to chores and studies, I still do them. I especially have high standards for myself when it comes to studying though I don't spend as much effort as others. If I don't get high grades I get upset.
- At beginning of 1st year I used to sleep through a whole class for the whole semester, I ended up getting the highest mark in it.
- I never do my 100% best, and I still do well, I think I have fear of doing my best and not getting better results.
- I also have imposter syndrome.
- I used to think that as a female my Fe is developed well even if it's my inferior function but someone told me I might be ENTP.
- My dorm room is tidy when you look at it from a far but if you look properly inside (especially in the closets) It's not really.
- When I feel really upset I try to shut down my mind but watching videos so I would stop thinking.
- I have many close friends but there is a barrier at which I keep them.
- I'm often suspicious of other people's intentions.
- I'm quick to judge and withdraw my judgement (even though they turn out correct sometimes).
- These days when I get upset, I try to analyze my feelings and the reasons behind them.
- I don't deal with my feelings once at a time, so I tend to explode sometimes. So if one day I get upset about something small I would cry about all the bad stuff that happened over a while.
- I'm too impatient to perfect an idea before presenting it to others. Before doing something new I would tell someone about it for feedback.
- When I learn something new or interesting, I would research it a bit then go tell my friends about it.
- When I started getting into mbti, I thought of making a database about my classmates and their personality types, and I immediately told my friends about that.
- But I didn't do it lol. Even though I forced a lot of people to do it. I just saved their types in my brain.
- I get into a lot of stuff but I never perfect them. Like piano, history, French an Italian.
- I'm only physically affectionate with my mom, and get irritated when my INFP sister gets too touchy with me. But I don't mind occasional hugs.

I hope these would help and i would appreciate it if you managed to read through the whole post.

Feel free to ask any question if it would help you determine my type.

my mind tells me you're INTP. I see more of a struggle between T & F instead of a struggle between N & S.

INTPs are more conscious of their Feeling oriented sore-spot which is something you bring up quite a lot in this post. ENTPs are more aware of their Sensing weak spot and are not as concerned about things F related as it is something they are more self confident in and don't feel the need to be as conscious of it.
