I just needed to let that out LOL;;

Anywho-sies! I am just driving myself crazy, trying to figure out what type I am -- it's been going on for like the past, what, seven or eight years?? I've made threads in the past, but hey -- one hundred third time's a charm? I'm not even planning on saying anything about myself in this first post, no way am I trying to influence you guys or make you think I'm something I'm "trying" to be. I find it really easy to manipulate this stuff, the functions are becoming more like copy/paste to me than something I'm actually applying. Welp.

If you think going through my thread posts will help, please do so~
And if you have any specific questions, a survey to answer, post away!

If you already think you know of my type, let me know too! 鈾♀櫋

@NipNip I could look back into it! Typed myself as an ENFP for about, two years I think? I dunno;;
@Dust Mite GOD why didn't I see it before???

I'm leaning more towards being some sort of Fe user myself, dom or aux.
But heck! If someone wants to argue Ne, I'm all for it~
(Could possibly explain why I see myself in so many types, yet none at once;; )

As an ISTJ, you do have Ne in your preferred cognitive function stack. You have Si Te Fi Ne.

@Dust Mite okay I'm starting to feel really bad, because I thought you were being sarcastic, so I was trying to be silly with you on that one there, I'm so sorry;;;

Aah! Very curious! Why ISTJ??
Also! I typed myself previously as ISFJ -- what is it that you see different between the two of us?

Hmh. Have you actually taken the cognitive functions test?

@NipNip I have, but it's gotten to the point where I know the definitions of all the functions -- some more deeply than others though. (I still have a very difficult time wrapping my mind around Ti;; ) I'm worried that if I take it, I may not be completely honest with myself since I would know what function each question is pertaining to, it makes it more difficult;; These things are pretty predictable to me. But! I'll try this one out, I haven't taken it before, so can't knock it 'till I try it! 鈾♀櫋

54). I love indie rock.
I'm sorry but LOL. How does this relate??

Here are my results:
Te (Extroverted Thinking) (95%)
your valuation of / adherence to logic of external systems / hierarchies / methods

Ti (Introverted Thinking) (65%)
your valuation of / adherence to your own internally devised logic/rational

Ne (Extroverted Intuition) (60%)
your valuation of / tendency towards free association and creating with external stimuli

Ni (Introverted Intuition) (80%)
your valuation of / tendency towards internal/original free association and creativity

Se (Extroverted Sensing) (65%)
your valuation of / tendency to fully experience the world unfiltered, in the moment

Si (Introverted Sensing) (60%)
your valuation of / focus on internal sensations and reliving past moments

Fe (Extroverted Feeling) (100%)
your valuation of / adherence to external morals, ethics, traditions, customs, groups

Fi (Introverted Feeling) (75%)
your valuation of / adherence to the sanctity of your own feelings / ideals / sentiment

////////////////////////////////////////
based on your results your type is likely - enfj

The Te result has me shook. Really wasn't expecting that;; :shocked:

Update:

I don't think ENFJ is right @ all;; I watched a video by Dario Nardi -- someone whom is very well-read in Meyers-Briggs type theory and Jung's cognitive functions -- who created a test based off of brain patters and activity to all sorts of stimuli. In it, he talked about one of the easiest ways he can determine if someone uses S or N preference is through a test of printing your name, and then trying to print your name backwards with your non-dominant hand. I tried it out, and when I pressed play to continue, he said the S users would focus more on the original print and not think much of the second activity, just simply do; whereas N users would focus more on the backwards part, trying over and over to print as neatly as they could, believing there'd be greater significance of this action. This was not @ all how I felt, nor how I did my name, but instead it the S way.

I guess it comes down to Se vs. Si?? :blushed:

If you find the tests predictable, then might as well just scrap the results from the cognitive functions test you posted.

Deciding you are an S or N in the fashion you suggested sounds bizarre to me - surely you'd want some stronger evidence to support your conclusion over something as minute as writing your name with your non-dominant hand.

Have you considered ESFJ?
FeSi (ESFJ) 鈥 Type in Mind

What resonates with you? What doesn't resonate with you? Why?

I suggest ESFJ because, to me, you're very self-aware - of how you'll come across, of how you know any answers you give will be bias, and in the earliest post I could find of yours, the whole thing screams FeSi - you say you're at your best when you stop worrying what others think of you, when you stop thinking about every little mistake you make, when you stop belittling yourself.. this is Si self-awareness.

I feel like I could write for days about all the ways that original "Who am I?" post suggests FeSi.

The way you actually write your posts, very animated, full of little hearts and whatnot, and more telling, they come across as being compassionate - you put your self-awareness out there in a way that is designed to put the readers mind at ease. It's like you're trying to take care of the readers thoughts.
I.E - you tell us how bias your answers will be regarding cognitive functions tests, you tell us you're not trying to influence us, and don't want to manipulate us etc.

That is how Fe would come out in writing.


So yeah, that's my 2c. I think you're an ESFJ.

I'd like to point out that because introverted functions are well, introverted - it is obviously way easier to tell a persons extraverted functions in the way they write - this means you might very well be an ISFJ as well.

Keen to hear your thoughts.

I have a hunch that based on the cognitive functions test you might be INFJ. (Call it a Ni insight).

@Turi thank you so much for responding, I really appreciate it! 鈾♀櫋

I tried to make a video to explain everything this morning, but feel too lazy to sit through waiting for Youtube to upload it, maybe some other time I'll make one LOL;; I really enjoy talking through video or audio too though, I feel it's much more engaging and raw than simply writing -- everything can be filtered and it can be difficult to get out expressions, or @ least that's how I feel.

I'm starting to wonder if I'm just trying to mimic people I really look up to and admire. Being myself, I feel happiest when I'm just not even thinking about anything. I resonate very deeply towards being a Sensing type, and though it's a lot of fun for me to think on the meaning for things, dream interpretations and crystal healing and astrology, I feel very miserable sitting down for too long, just thinking. Yesterday when I posted this and was waiting for responses, I felt so depressed and like I was making myself go crazy, I asked my boyfriend if we could go out for a long drive and pick up ice cream with friends to help me feel better.

When being out with them, I realized I spend an awful amount of time trying to take the attention back to myself and found that I really enjoy being with others -- it's actually a lot more fun to me than sitting around, waiting for responses and thinking about myself too much! That's how I feel extroverted anyhow, I think I'm shy, but others keep telling me I'm much too outgoing and expressive.

Aah gosh this is a lot of reading;; I'm on my break from work right now and will be headed back in just a little bit -- I'll go over it once I come back home tonight and tell you what I think! 鈾♀櫋

Aah gosh...LOL...鈾♀櫋 (Where did you even find hearts???)

ESFJ seems right, especially when we consider what type of mindset would pick your rosey avatar pic.

That is all I got to say.

Jung has some points of view on it too.
I picked the most random quote I could find that both had extraverted and feeling in it.
Just as well, as Ne types don't care about the depth anyway.
They want breadth, so here enjoy a wide curveball, that sort of hits the mark.


"...because the extravert, who possesses his ego not in thinking, but rather in the feeling relation to the object, really finds himself trough the object, while the introvert loses himself in it. But when the extravert, proceeds to introvert, he comes to his inferior relationship with collective ideas, i.e. to an identity with collective thinking of an archaic concretistic quality, which one might describe as sensationpresentation. He loses himself in this inferior function just as much as the introvert in his inferior extraversion. Hence the extravert has the same repugnance, fear, or silent scorn for introversion as the introvert for extraversion."
Carl Jung, Psychological Types, page 131

What do you do when you're stressed and what stresses you? Things that make you feel strongly are usually a petty good trustworthy indicator. Especially think of anything of when you were younger, like before highschool. How did you interact with your, if any, siblings and your parents? What were they like? What types of things did you enjoy and gravitate to? What kind of people do you like to be around and why? What kind of people make you feel relaxed or irritated. It's best to try not to think of other personality types in those instances but rather the other people's individualistic habits, attitudes, how you feel about how they engage you, and their attributes. Because usually you notice most and firstly what's different between you and others, even if you don't particularly make a note of it in your mind.

And you said you might be an ENFP, I know personally as an ENTP, thinking about those things too much rubs me the wrong way, but that's probably more likely the fact that I don't have Fi more so than my inf. Si... maybe, nvrmnd, ignore that comment if you like.

I had a really good question to ask, but I completely forgot it, darn.

@Jest_Please I'm a mess when I'm stressed;; I've thrown and broken phones, shoes, hair clips -- you name it. I've lost expensive makeup and cool gadgets out of throwing things, that seems to immediately be one of my first reactions when I'm upset, besides screaming. I've jumped out of moving cars too because I get so stressed out, I want to alienate myself and will immediately leave the situation, even if it means I'm harming myself, I don't even think about it. I've ran away from home quite a bit and it takes me some time to cool down. Everyone knows me as being a total drama diva;;

Things that stress me will be believing that someone is lying to me and won't be honest about it (these are just "hunches" though, and sometimes have proven to not even be right;; ), being ignored, having expectations thrown on me that I don't feel secure enough to live up to. Thinking about the future, because I never know what it is I'm doing with my life, honestly. Sitting down and actually thinking about my actions, and what consequences has come become of them.

I've always been very close with my family. I'm still awful keeping in contact with them;; but when I am with them, I love to be very playful and silly, very loving too. I let myself be emotional around them and know I can always tell them how I'm feeling. My family is very supportive and all touchy-feely. Very outgoing people, and always doing the best for everyone's interests. They never pushed me to do anything I didn't want to do, but would help me out in my interests and would financially support my short-lived passions, and always encouraged me in their own considerate ways to become a better person. I regret not showing them love very often when I was younger;;

The kind of people I gravitate to most are those who can laugh @ themselves! I love people who don't mind putting themselves out in the spotlight and being silly, people who just have so much confidence that they don't take themselves so seriously, and are just very down-to-earth and humble with themselves. I love someone who is always willing to go out to do something fun, I think that's always been the number one most important attribute for me! I'm not really one who enjoys "hanging out", to sit around and talk a whole lot;; I find I connect better to others when we're engaged in a fun activity together.

I'm irritated most by the complete opposite basically lol;; someone who is a home-body and loves to talk more than do. I can easily get lost and daze out in conversation. (I think this is why I thought I had disassociation disorder? I'm just surrounded by a lot of people whom I tune out and get lost in what I'm looking @.) I also don't like being around people that I have to "be a certain way" around, I'm heavily nervous around in-laws and authority figures.

@music box In that case, I really do think you're an ENFP. You're definitely an F, I have little doubt in my mind about. The EXXP from liking to do things vs talking; I'm the same, and also because you get distracted during things like conversations (the Ne at work, I've experienced this many times). And the N because how unfond you are with authority figures and how much you're willing to take matters into your own hands and your short-lived passions (the very fact that they were short-lived but also still passionate).

I really do think that you typed yourself correctly during that time. ENXPs are known also for being the most introverted of the extroverts. But if I may ask another question: if you weren't an ENFP, what other type(s) do you think you could be?

I also know that XNXPs in general are also known for having problems with being on-time and with procrastination (J/P). Also some types need around them to be at least generally clean and tidy, but other types could live with accumulating messes as need be (I am very guilty of this).

(P.S. You're family sounds very lovely and you seem really kind too! XD )

@Jest_Please aah gosh, thank you for your response, I really appreciate it! 鈾♀櫋

I think it's very curious and flattering, the idea of being an ENFP! In some ways, I don't feel like it fits me;; just looking @ how my INFP boyfriend distinguishes the two of us, he really pushes towards us being complete opposites but there are moments when I can point out his hypocrisy, trying to make us sound different through things or actions that I've done -- that he's done himself as well! Usually though he ends up very moody and quiet, kinda mopes around with a rain cloud over his head.

Being so constantly compared to him, I don't feel like Ne is a good fit for me? But maybe I'm looking @ it the wrong way? He loved generating ideas, and then ideas off those ideas! He loves bouncing them off one another but can end up talking on these things for so long;; I never tell him, but it really does bore me @ a certain point if there's no humor involved, but as I mentioned before, I'm not one for too much talking! (Unless it involves a funny story, usually.)

I've been getting others recommending ESFJ, so maybe that? I typed myself before as ISFJ but I can't totally relate to Ne-inferior @ all;; I really liked a lot of what NFJ descriptions -- both E and I -- had to say, but looking deeply into myself, I feel as though I'm just looking for something within me that isn't even there. I'm also bouncing back to when I previously typed myself as an SFP, but I forgot quite a bit;; I just feel honestly very lost, like I can easily type those I'm closest with in my life. But the one person I'm with every sleeping and waking moment for the past 22 years, I can't get a full reading on her. My vision of myself seems so foggy and disoriented, like looking into a shattered mirror, I'm just trying to fill in the blanks but for some reason, nothing feels completely right? I wonder if being an extrovert has anything to do with not knowing myself as easily as others do.

Decisive and very indecisive at the same time.

You should hang out in ennegram 2 forum and find your alikes.

ESFJ/ENFJ, maybe ENFP

Good luck narrowing it down further, you will need it.

@Turi + @Apple Pine + @Red Magician I think it's time to admit that I'm probably an ESFJ.

I read through the whole FeSi description, as well as looked @ a site that included what all functions in all positions would reveal themselves to be like for the person. I heavily related to Fe-dom, without question. Nothing else was even close to it, not even Si.

When I read out-loud the inferior Ti questions, my boyfriend had me repeat them over and over to myself to prove a point, each one he was able to give a list of examples of how it shows within a single day;; It's really embarrassing to see it for myself, though I'm very happy that I finally feel like I've found the perfect match! 鈾♀櫋

Thank you for giving me your opinion, if I wasn't recommended it so much, I probably would haven ever looked it up;;;; :blushed:
