Hola! So I found this questionnaire and I thought it was very interesting, so I decided to try it. Thanks in advance to whom is going to type me.

SCENARIO 1
The beginning of this questionnaire already got me cornered, but sure I’ll try to describe my “feelings”.
I guess I would get totally confused if my s.o suddenly ended our relationship with no apparent reason. I would like us to talk things through especially after discovering the truth. I would like to be there for them, to be able to support them. I would be sad that they got diagnosed with cancer, maybe also a bit angry at life for being so unfair. I would try to do everything in my power to make them happy because I love them.
My focus on this scenario would end up on my s.o, on their happiness.

SCENARIO 2
I would end up helping my roommate. They didn’t ask to copy my anwers they just wanted me to help tutor and mentor them. It would cost me nothing, it is just a simple favor and I have already done my assignment, so why not lending an helping hand? The professor would never know about it and I get to do a good deed, I see this as a win-win situation. Since it looks like I’m one of the top students in the class and this test could mean the difference between passing and failing the class, I would try to do my best.

SCENARIO 3
I can say without doubt that I would choose the second project. The first project is too broad so I would’ve difficulty working through it efficiently, I prefer much more to concentrate deeply in an individual work so my mental energies can’t get too scattered. The possibility to work alone would appeal to me because just the idea of working through the project together with a group of individuals seems exhausting enough. I wouldn’t dismiss them just for so little, but If we can’t collaborate well it would also have a significant impact on company operations, I wouldn’t like to assume such responsibility.

SCENARIO 4
I would probably listen to which ideas they are tossing around, but after a while if they can’t stop brainstorming I would suggest them to narrow down first the nature and the direction of the project. It’s good that they are able to get many valuable ideas but we can’t also waste time sitting there with no actual progress in the project. After we are able to narrow it down, they’re free to brainstorm as much as they want. Also I’d like for us to define clearly who is going to do what, so we don’t end up messing up.

SCENARIO 5
I would probably pass my time listening to music while reading a book, add a nice cup of tea, my comfy bed and we’re good to go. Maybe I will also chat with my friends on discord if feel like it, they can help me relax. Watching something in company, playing games are very helpful in such situations. I like doing things that don’t require much energy since when I am exhausted I don’t like to overexert myself.

I always thought that music is really a powerful instrument, a good song can make my mood get better in an instant. Music is my secret not so secret battery charger.

SCENARIO 6
My top choices (not in order) would be Musician, Psychologist and Medical Doctor.
  • I would like to be a musician since I’ve always loved music, like I said above music has a healing effect on me and I’m quite sure that there are others that feel this way too. Sadly I don’t know to play any instrument, but I would like to learn at least one one day. I know that being a musician is diffult nowadays, but just the thought of being able to connect to someone else through my music makes me totally satisfied.
  • I would like to be psychologist because I always thought it was a very interesting job, to be able to “read” into another one’s thoughts it’s scary and exciting at the same time. The main reason I would like to be a psychologist is to be able to help people with their problems and prevent suicides. I already lost someone over it and I would never want others to experience the same thing.
  • I would like to be a medical doctor to be able to help other people just like my mom. I always felt guilty that my mom got diagnosed with diabetes since I was born and because of that her body constitution is very bad. I want to be able to help people with financial problems. Even thought my country isn’t the best, free health care is very helpful for my family’s situation.
The possibility of helping others is what I find the most fulfilling with a career as a psychologist and doctor, in a certain way being a musician could be a helpful job. I’m also worried about those career choices since I’m not good with emotions and/or people.
Strangely enough it wasn’t very difficult to pick only 3 choices, maybe because i felt that those 3 careers spoke to me in a certain way.

SCENARIO 7
The first thing I noticed was how saturated the canyon’s colour looked like, the colour is very vibrant and the contrast with the dark sides makes the the illuminated area stand out. I really like how smooth the lines of the canyon looks like, I’m curious about how the texture feels like. I also find the contrast betwen the green trees and the dry ones very interesting, kinda like an oxymoron in nature. I feel like the river part of the picture is too dark, maybe a little more light would’ve helped.
It is a very interesting picture, I would have probably used it as a wallpaper if the picture was lighter. I think that the contrast of colors is the strenght of this photo, the picture could be kinda split in half: the upper half is connected to warmer tones while the lower half is more connected to colder tones. Overall opinion: a very nice realistic drawing.

I did this questionnaire but still had trouble figuring out my type and want to post it here for help:

SCENARIO 1

FOCUS ON YOUR FEELING PROCESS HERE

Your significant other just ended your 2 year relationship quite suddenly and with no apparent explanation. Up until this point you had both been talking about marriage and last week you even went to look at rings together. Now he/she won't even return your phone calls or texts. After talking with his/her family you find out that he/she has just been diagnosed with terminal stage 4 cancer.

- Describe how this scenario would make you feel as well as what sort of influences and motivations lie behind those feelings. Why do you feel the way you do?

I would feel devastated, my heart would already be broken from the breakup and then the addition of cancer is like salt to the wound. The motivation for these feelings would come from my love for this person.

- In this scenario what would you honestly say the primary focus of your feelings would be?

My feelings would be focused on the relationship between us and how we can move forward.


SCENARIO 2

FOCUS ON YOUR FEELING PROCESS HERE

You are in college and this semester both you and your roommate end up in the same class together. You and your roommate get along fairly well and the living situation works but you aren't particularly close. You both typically do your own thing and are rather indifferent to each other. As the semester progresses you excel and become one of the top students in the class whereas your roommate is struggling significantly to grasp the material. The professor assigns a fairly challenging take home test that is a significant portion of your grade. He/she makes it clear that while it is open book, students are to work alone. Later your roommate comes to you begging for help after struggling with the test most of the weekend. You have already completed the assignment and he/she isn't asking to copy your answers, just to help tutor and mentor them as they struggle to complete the test, so there is no way your professor would ever know. However, this is the first time your room-mate has asked you for help this semester. He/she makes it clear that how they do on this test could mean the difference between passing and failing this class.

- How do you respond to your roommate’s request and why?

I would help them, the professor won’t know.

- What sort of things in this scenario stand out to you as far as having a strong influence on your decision making and why?

The fact that we are roommates, because if I let them down they might be aggravated at me and that would make living with them uneasy.

- Describe the flow of your decision making process.

I don’t want to upset my roommate and helping them doesn’t seem like a big problem since the professor won’t know.


SCENARIO 3

FOCUS ON YOUR LOGIC AND THINKING PROCESS HERE

Your boss calls you into his/her office in order to assign you to a new project. He/she gives you a choice between two.

Project 1 is a rather broad, expansive project covering multiple areas of company operations. It has the potential to have a very significant impact on company operations but it would require a collective effort and an extensive amount of group work where you would be logically thinking through the project together with the group of individuals your boss has also assigned to it.

Project 2 has a much more specific and narrow focus and would require a significant amount of in depth individual analysis to work through the problem. You would be working alone and the completion of the project may or may not have much impact on company operations. However, after complete the process and problem you were working on will be streamlined and fundamentally understood.

- Which project appeals to you the most, as it relates to the way you prefer to logically process information? Why?

The second project because it seems much more straightforward.

- What sort of things in this scenario, across either project, stood out to you as having a strong influence on your decision? Why?

The narrow focus and in depth analysis sound more appealing to me because I have trouble with projects that are too vague.


SCENARIO 4

FOCUS ON YOUR LOGIC AND THINKING PROCESS HERE

Your college professor has assigned you to a group project with 3 other individuals. All 3 of these individuals have a good strong work ethic and desire to contribute to the overall success of this project. You are at the first meeting of your group and the other members are tossing around valuable ideas as to the nature and direction of this project.


- Describe your behavior in this situation as you process and think about the ideas they are presenting.

I stay silent and let them pass around their ideas.

- Describe what major influences drive this behavior

I probably have no idea what to do and listening to their conversation might help me come up with ideas.


SCENARIO 5

FOCUS ON THE SOURCES YOU DRAW NON-PHYSICAL ENERGY FROM HERE

It has been a very long week and you feel mentally and emotionally drained, but good news! It is Saturday and you have nothing significant that needs to be done. You FINALLY have some free time to yourself to recharge your batteries and do whatever you want.

- Describe what sort of activities would help you to recharge. What would you enjoy doing after a long week and why?

Watch, read, play, or listen to things I’ve meant to listen to for a long time.

- What sort of things do you feel you draw non-physical energy from doing?

Learning and experiencing new things.

SCENARIO 6

FOCUS ON THINKING VS FEELING HERE

You have a meeting with your college career counselor to discuss potential careers that interest you. He/she offers you a list of the following careers and asks you to pick your TOP 3. He/she asks you to take money out of the equation. Imagine all of these careers received equal compensation. Focus instead on where you would truly feel most happy and fulfilled.

Artist, Scientist, Actor, Engineer, Musician, Lawyer, Counselor, Entrepreneur, Teacher, Manager, Psychologist, Computer Programmer / Analyst, Clergy, Child Care, Medical Doctor


- What were your top 3 choices and what aspects of these careers appeal to you?

Actor, musician, and psychologist. Because I already have interest in those areas.

- Was it difficult or easy to pick only 3 and why?

It was very easy because they all pertain to my interests and would probably enjoy doing them.

- Prioritize the aspects of your career choices that influenced your decision, what things mattered most to you, where do you imagine finding the most fulfillment and why?

The artistic nature of acting and musicianship, I also am fascinated by the aspects of psychology.


SCENARIO 7

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?


- Describe the main things that stand out to you in this picture.

The trees and the water.

- Why do you think/feel you focused on those things?

They stand out because of their color and texture.

- Describe the strength with which this photo did or did not appeal to you and why?

This photo doesn’t really appeal to me mostly due to the color of the rocks, but the trees and the water are nice.

- Describe how this scenario would make you feel as well as what sort of influences and motivations lie behind those feelings. Why do you feel the way you do?

Well, fuck. At first I'd be pissed and just annoyed until I found out why. And then try to make bad jokes about them dying on me, while like trying to make them more comfortable and be shit bed side manner but try to like do whatever I can to like make their last months on earth marginally better and panic and break down in secret. Maybe Go a bit crazy and try to figure out a way to cheat death on the side including like medical advancements, trials, and up to like making them a lich.

- In this scenario what would you honestly say the primary focus of your feelings would be?

probably shock, realistically, but also it would super charge my motivation to focus on this shit and try to save them.

He/she makes it clear that how they do on this test could mean the difference between passing and failing this class.

- How do you respond to your roommate’s request and why?

I'd help the roomate. It's not giving the answers, if they fail I may get a shittier roomate, also the person did try most of the weekend. It's open book, like technically I'd be within the rules to highlight all the right answers in my book and walk away and the question isn't even doing that. So sure

- What sort of things in this scenario stand out to you as far as having a strong influence on your decision making and why?

They did spend time on it and tried and asked, besides it's open book. Like.... There are very exploitable guidelines here while still following rules so sure.


- Describe the flow of your decision making process.

It's listed above, I think.

- Which project appeals to you the most, as it relates to the way you prefer to logically process information? Why?
project 2. There are less distractions, I like working alone and I really enjoy figuring out how things work and why.

- What sort of things in this scenario, across either project, stood out to you as having a strong influence on your decision? Why?

i don't like group projects, but also 2 just sounds more interesting overall. I don't really care how efficient it is for the company tbh.



SCENARIO 4

Your college professor has assigned you to a group project with 3 other individuals. All 3 of these individuals have a good strong work ethic and desire to contribute to the overall success of this project. You are at the first meeting of your group and the other members are tossing around valuable ideas as to the nature and direction of this project.


- Describe your behavior in this situation as you process and think about the ideas they are presenting.
Eh? Id almost prefer people who would just let me do all of it, but actually doing their part is good. I'd listen and generate ideas

- Describe what major influences drive this behavior.
trying to be nice and not annoyed by the group project but also like worrying about it more than needed


SCENARIO 5

FOCUS ON THE SOURCES YOU DRAW NON-PHYSICAL ENERGY FROM HERE

It has been a very long week and you feel mentally and emotionally drained, but good news! It is Saturday and you have nothing significant that needs to be done. You FINALLY have some free time to yourself to recharge your batteries and do whatever you want.

- Describe what sort of activities would help you to recharge. What would you enjoy doing after a long week and why?

A bath, a walk in nature, going somewhere unusual to explore, or a board game night with friends

- What sort of things do you feel you draw non-physical energy from doing?

The above, but also just day dreaming and thinking and planning nonsensical things for fun

SCENARIO 6

FOCUS ON THINKING VS FEELING HERE

You have a meeting with your college career counselor to discuss potential careers that interest you. He/she offers you a list of the following careers and asks you to pick your TOP 3. He/she asks you to take money out of the equation. Imagine all of these careers received equal compensation. Focus instead on where you would truly feel most happy and fulfilled.

Artist, Scientist, Actor, Engineer, Musician, Lawyer, Counselor, Entrepreneur, Teacher, Manager, Psychologist, Computer Programmer / Analyst, Clergy, Child Care, Medical Doctor


- What were your top 3 choices and what aspects of these careers appeal to you?

Analyst - I do that shit in my free time
entrepreneur - why not? Seems interesting.
medical doctor but only if time traveling is possible so I can be an old timey doctor like "you've got ghost in your blood, you should do cocaine about it."
if that's not available, maybe psychology but like research psychology

- Was it difficult or easy to pick only 3 and why?
idk maybe some type of science or acting could be thrown in

- Prioritize the aspects of your career choices that influenced your decision, what things mattered most to you, where do you imagine finding the most fulfillment and why?

doing something Interesting , challenging to some extent, isn't entirely subjective and can be like monitored on progress and shit and doesn't require public speaking

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?

View attachment 295170

- Describe the main things that stand out to you in this picture.
Why is there like a moss thing? It's green. Everything else is amber. Is this pride rock, a Stargate, hollow earth? Why is there a blurred out name? Is this a real pic? I assumed cgi
- Why do you think/feel you focused on those thing?

eh? Curiosity

- Describe the strength with which this photo did or did not appeal to you and why?


The water is dark. Seems like a good place for an evil squid over lord to hide. Also the name I can't read.

 

Scenario 1
The purpose here is to try to get a sense of Fe or Fi from the feelings / reaction they describe. Pay close attention to what the individual talks about as that is typically where their focus lies. Look beyond the decisions and try to discern what is motivating and driving the decision.

Fe:

  • May describe feeling overwhelmed, numb, or confused about their own emotions (especially if tertiary or inferior Fe)
  • May try to assume or describe what their SO might be feeling
  • Their own feelings may be strongly influenced or even overwritten by what they assume their SO is feeling
  • Any decisions they make will be strongly influenced by what they perceive their SO is feeling as well as the outcome for themselves and their SO
Fi:

  • May very clearly describe exactly what and how they would be feeling in response to their SO’s actions
  • May express confusion as to what their SO is feeling or a desire to try and understand their feelings
  • Their own feelings will be clear and independent from whatever their SO might be feeling
  • Any decisions they make will be strongly influenced by what they feel is the right thing to do independent of the outcome on their SO

Things to be aware of

  • Pay attention to “T” analytical influence and approach to this scenario, may indicate T dom over F dom
  • Avoid stereotyping based on decisions made. Both Fi and Fe can display empathy for example
    • ex: insisting on staying by their SO’s side until the end. They each get to the decision by a different cognitive path.
    • Fi – because they determine it is the right thing to do.
    • Fe – Because of perceived negative effect on SO or themselves if they don't
    • Keep in mind there may not be an extreme noticable difference, both Fi and Fe can consider both, They each give a bit more emphasis and priority to one over the other
Scenario 2
The purpose here again is to try and get a sense of Fe or Fi influence on decisions. Pay close attention to what the individual talks most about as that is likely where their F focus lies. Look beyond the decisions and try to discern what is motivating and driving the decision.

Fe:

  • Will express possible outcomes on individuals involved based on various decisions
  • Decision will be mostly focused on the outcome of individuals involved ie: roommate, self, professor
  • Determining what is the right or wrong decision will be heavily influenced by outcome
Fi

  • Will express value judgments about the situation ie: what they perceive is right or wrong
  • Decision will be mostly focused on their internal sense of the right thing to do independent of outcome
  • Determining what is right or wrong will be heavily influenced by personal values

Things to be aware of

  • Do not stereotype based on the decision made, look for the influence behind the decision
    • Ex: Fe may decide not to help because they determine it is a temporary fix for their roommate and in the long run it will help them more to let them learn from this experience on their own
    • Ex: Fi may decide to help because they don’t place much value on the professors definition of right or wrong, instead they determine that letting their roommate struggle is wrong
  • Both outcome and personal values may be evident in the decision making process of both Fe and Fi, pay attention to which seems to have the stronger influence.
  • Fi does NOT mean “selfish” and Fe does NOT always mean a focus on the other person. Ex: Fe can also have an outcome focus that is based on what would happen to themselves if they decide to help

Scenario 3
The purpose of this scenario is to try and get a sense of Te or Ti in their logical thought process. Pay close attention to what the individual talks most about that appeals or does not appeal to them about each project. Look beyond the decisions and try to discern what is influencing motivating their choice. It may not necessarily be T… it could be N or social introversion / extroversion. Factor in the Fe vs Fi assessment from the first two scenarios. Fe would be paired with Ti and Fi would be paired with Te.

Te

  • Strong Te may express enjoyment in logically working through problems with outside influence / stimuli (Primary, Tert Ne influence paired with Te increases the likelihood of this)
  • Strong Te may express a desire for relevancy, real world application, effect on the company
  • Tert / Inf Te being influenced by Ni may choose to work alone because group idea generation doesn’t appeal to them. The expansive nature of the project may also intimidate them.
  • Tert / Inf Te being influenced by Fi may choose to work alone because of past experience with group members not pulling their weight or living up to their standards
Ti

  • Strong Ti may express enjoyment in logically digging in to a singular problem preferring to be left alone to “think” (Primary, Tert Ni influence paired with Ti increases the likelihood of this)
  • Strong Ti may express a desire to fundamentally understand something as well as show a lack of concern for relevancy or real world application
  • Tert / Inf Ti being influenced by Ne may choose to work in a group because collective brainstorming appeals to them. The narrow focus of the individual project may bore them.
  • Tert / Inf Ti being influenced by Fe may choose to work in a group because the socialization aspect and group decision making sounds fun.

Things to be aware of

  • Depending on F / T dominance and N influence… this could end up being a much better determination of extroversion / introversion especially with tertiary and inferior T

Scenario 4
The purpose of this scenario is to again try and get a sense of Te or Ti in their logical thought process. Pay close attention to how the individual’s logical process operates when forced into a social setting where they are receiving input of ideas and possible directions for the project. Look beyond the decisions and try to discern what logical process is influencing their behavior. Be aware of strong Ne / Ni influence here.

Te

  • Strong Te may try to step up and take leadership to try and logically put together the ideas being discussed
  • Strong Te may have a much more broad encompassing focus to trying to logically unify everyone ie: group voting
  • Ne influence will also motivate them to help drive idea generation
  • Strong Ne influence will be more driven to generate possibilities rather than externally organize them
  • Primary Ni/Si with tertiary Fi may mask Te here and seem like Ti, idea generation may be suppressed and more internal and narrowly focused (Ni), decision may be more personal value focused (Fi)
Ti

  • Strong Ti may choose to sit back and absorb the ideas, piecing them together internally. They may or may not choose to speak out eventually describing what they have brought together.
  • Strong Ti may have a much more narrow focus, internally picking and trying to unify the best of what was presented
  • Ni influence will increase the likelihood of silent observation as well as the internal unification process
  • Strong Ni influence will be much more driven to internally putting together the best possible course of action ie: deciding logically what they consider is the best direction for the group
  • Primary Ne/Se with tertiary Fe may mask Ti here and seem like Te, behavior may be more broad and encompassing, consist of participation in idea generation (Ne), trying to include the whole group in the decision (Fe)

Things to be aware of
  • F vs T dominance again plays a big role here especially if is a primary / inferior separation. Be aware of the possibility of strong F influence on their decision.
  • N extroversion / introversion also plays a role in their behavior. Alignment with T extroversion / introversion connects the idea generation / logical process together thus strengthening the T effect on behavior. Opposing extroversion / introversion may connect more and align with F and mask the T effect on behavior.
  • Pay attention to the possible strength and clarity of F vs T in the scenarios thus far. In a Primary / Inferior combo one will seem very clear the other may be ambiguous or even seem like the opposite of what it is. In an Auxiliary / Tertiary combo both may be fairly clear and align with each other but which is dominant over the other may not.

Scenario 5
This scenario is meant to determine social introversion / extroversion and determine whether they generate their own energy internally or need to draw it in from external sources.

Introversion

  • May prefer individual tasks that focus on things that interest them or are important to them
  • May show more of a 1 on 1 or intimate focus to socialization
Extroversion

  • May prefer activities that provide external stimuli and/or social interaction
  • May not show any social anxiety preferring a greater amount of social interaction

Things to be aware of
  • Pay attention to the extroverted / introverted behaviors shown in scenario 3.
  • Primary Ne with aux Ti or Fi may look more introverted because Ne doesn’t necessarily seek out socialization, just external stimuli which could be something like a book or a movie. For example: This is why ENTP is considered the most introverted of the extroverted types, Primary Ne paired with Auxiliary Ti.
  • The opposite effect can also manifest in auxiliary Fe users as Fe is a very socially extroverted function.

Scenario 6
This scenario is meant to assess the strength of F vs T as well as what is primarily motivating their choice. Be aware of the influence of the inferior function here as well.

Primary T

  • May express more desire for doing things that pertain to analysis and logical thought

Primary F

  • May express more desire for self-expression or focus on affecting people

Aux / Tert F and T

  • May express both motives from above

Things to be aware of


    • Combine this with the F / T assessment from scenario 1-4 as well as the introvert / extrovert assessment from scenario 3 and 5
    • Both Fe and Te seek broad external relevance on people and/or society in general, if this desire is expressed try to discern whether it comes from an F or T influence.
    • Fi influence may be trying to champion a specific cause meaning something in there personal experience caused them to put significant value on a certain cause: ex: helping children overcome abuse
    • Ti influence may gravitate more towards individual analytical / logical type work
    • Be aware of possible abstract N / objective S influence on F and T here.
    • At this point you should have a fairly clear idea of introversion / extroversion as well as Fe/Ti vs Fi/Te. Use the key below to logically narrow down possible primary functions and types. You should be able to narrow it down to 2-4 possibilities here.

Introvert w/ Fe-Ti: Primary or Tertiary function could be Ti

  • Strong T influence indicates primary Ti: ISTP / INTP
  • Ambiguous F / T influence indicating auxiliary Fe and tertiary Ti: ISFJ / INFJ

Extrovert w/ Fe-Ti: Primary or Tertiary function could be Fe

  • Strong F influence indicates primary Fe: ESFJ / ENFJ
  • Ambiguous F / T influence indicates auxiliary Ti and tertiary Fe: ESTP / ENTP

Introvert w/ Fi-Te: Primary or Tertiary function could be Fi

  • Strong F influence indicates primary Fi: ISFP / INFP
  • Ambiguous F / T influence indicates auxiliary Te and tertiary Fi: ISTJ / INTJ

Extrovert w/ Fi-Te: Primary or Tertiary function could be Te

  • Strong T influence indicates primary Te: ESTJ / ENTJ
  • Ambiguous F / T influence indicates auxiliary Fi and tertiary Te: ESFP / ENFP


Scenario 7
This is primarily meant to determine the strength of N vs S however you can also tell a lot about F and T from the descriptions used here.


  • T influence: Will take a more analytical approach to interpreting the image
  • F influence: Will describe feelings that the image presents to the individual
  • Se influence: Try to take in the big picture all at once, could express being overwhelmed sensory wise
  • Si influence: May focus on and notice details, color contrast, textures, may also describe physical sensations they would feel if there
  • Ne influence: May express and generate many ideas, concepts, possibilities, patterns in relation to specific details
  • Ni influence: May seek a singular and fundamental meaning behind the image, may also have a desire to explore and see more than what is there and/or imagine what could be

Things to be aware of


    • Primary / Inferior combo of F and T implies Auxiliary / Tertiary combo of N and S and vice versa
    • Consider introversion and extroversion in determining primary function possibilities
    • Between Scenario 6 and 7 a dominant function should become clear and you should be able to logically narrow things down to 1 or two possible types.
    • If the strength of S vs N is ambiguous here it could mean primary F or T. Introversion vs Extroversion should tell you which is primary. Attempt to determine Ni / Se or Ne / Si in order to determine exact type
    • If the strength of S vs N is clear it could mean F and T is ambiguous, introversion / extroversion should line up with primary Si / Se or Ni / Ne and thus allow you to determine exact type.

[/QUOTE]

This is an upgraded version of the previous scenario based questionnaire I was testing on this thread:
Short Scenario Based Type Questionnaire (Test)

Some key points to the update:

  • Refined the wording in the first 3 scenarios and added an additional Ti vs Te scenario to make it even between F and T
  • Scenario 4 is now scenario 5 and 5 is now 6. Retooled the career scenario and made it more open and designed with the intent on drawing out reasons and motivations behind the choices.
  • Removed the Keirsey Temperament focus in Scenario 6 and 7 and inserted an open ended image to discuss IOT gauge strength of N vs S.

If you feel that this has been valuable tool in helping narrow down and identify type PLEASE rate this thread. If you don't find value in this then keep your comments and ratings to yourself! I'm very sensitive.
👅
...aaand Kidding, however if you feel this needs further refinement, I would love feedback as to your thoughts.

A HUGE thank you goes out to all who participated in trying out my original test as well as those who offered very valuable feedback and suggestions! @StunnedFox @LavenderMoon @idoh @telarana @emberfly @Living dead @castigat @To_august just to name a few… as well as SO many others that participated and helped as well. I’m sorry if I missed you but there were just too many to all list here.

My goal here is to create a short, effective, efficient, and all inclusive means for individuals to assess and self-type or for others besides myself to use this test to type. A description of things to look for in each scenario as well as how to use the scenarios to logically narrow down potential opitions is listed in the spoiler below.

**If you are taking this test in order to type yourself please DO NOT read through the key before you give your answers as they may skew your perspective and thus the results. The ONLY right answers here are ones that are true and honest to who you are.

Also, due to so many responses in my initial thread I will not be attempting to analyze every single one unless specifically asked. That is what the key is for. If you would like me or someone else to offer their input please mention who in your post and please attempt to use the key to give your own self-typing analysis first. It really helps those analyzing to see what functions you think you are using.


Lastly, when responding to the scenarios please focus your attention on the reasons and the why behind your decisions. If you choose to do a particular thing please take the time to talk about what thought process influenced that decision. The choices aren’t as important as the reasons why. Anyone trying to type you will be unable to get a clear sense of anything based on the decision and/or behavior alone**

“You didn't come here to make the choice.
You already made it.
You're here to try to understand why you made it.”

SCENARIO 1

FOCUS ON YOUR FEELING PROCESS HERE

Your significant other just ended your 2 year relationship quite suddenly and with no apparent explanation. Up until this point you had both been talking about marriage and last week you even went to look at rings together. Now he/she won't even return your phone calls or texts. After talking with his/her family you find out that he/she has just been diagnosed with terminal stage 4 cancer.

- Describe how this scenario would make you feel as well as what sort of influences and motivations lie behind those feelings. Why do you feel the way you do?

- In this scenario what would you honestly say the primary focus of your feelings would be?



SCENARIO 2

FOCUS ON YOUR FEELING PROCESS HERE

You are in college and this semester both you and your roommate end up in the same class together. You and your roommate get along fairly well and the living situation works but you aren't particularly close. You both typically do your own thing and are rather indifferent to each other. As the semester progresses you excel and become one of the top students in the class whereas your roommate is struggling significantly to grasp the material. The professor assigns a fairly challenging take home test that is a significant portion of your grade. He/she makes it clear that while it is open book, students are to work alone. Later your roommate comes to you begging for help after struggling with the test most of the weekend. You have already completed the assignment and he/she isn't asking to copy your answers, just to help tutor and mentor them as they struggle to complete the test, so there is no way your professor would ever know. However, this is the first time your room-mate has asked you for help this semester. He/she makes it clear that how they do on this test could mean the difference between passing and failing this class.

- How do you respond to your roommate’s request and why?

- What sort of things in this scenario stand out to you as far as having a strong influence on your decision making and why?

- Describe the flow of your decision making process.



SCENARIO 3

FOCUS ON YOUR LOGIC AND THINKING PROCESS HERE

Your boss calls you into his/her office in order to assign you to a new project. He/she gives you a choice between two.

Project 1 is a rather broad, expansive project covering multiple areas of company operations. It has the potential to have a very significant impact on company operations but it would require a collective effort and an extensive amount of group work where you would be logically thinking through the project together with the group of individuals your boss has also assigned to it.

Project 2 has a much more specific and narrow focus and would require a significant amount of in depth individual analysis to work through the problem. You would be working alone and the completion of the project may or may not have much impact on company operations. However, after complete the process and problem you were working on will be streamlined and fundamentally understood.

- Which project appeals to you the most, as it relates to the way you prefer to logically process information? Why?

- What sort of things in this scenario, across either project, stood out to you as having a strong influence on your decision? Why?


SCENARIO 4

FOCUS ON YOUR LOGIC AND THINKING PROCESS HERE

Your college professor has assigned you to a group project with 3 other individuals. All 3 of these individuals have a good strong work ethic and desire to contribute to the overall success of this project. You are at the first meeting of your group and the other members are tossing around valuable ideas as to the nature and direction of this project.


- Describe your behavior in this situation as you process and think about the ideas they are presenting.

- Describe what major influences drive this behavior.


SCENARIO 5

FOCUS ON THE SOURCES YOU DRAW NON-PHYSICAL ENERGY FROM HERE

It has been a very long week and you feel mentally and emotionally drained, but good news! It is Saturday and you have nothing significant that needs to be done. You FINALLY have some free time to yourself to recharge your batteries and do whatever you want.

- Describe what sort of activities would help you to recharge. What would you enjoy doing after a long week and why?

- What sort of things do you feel you draw non-physical energy from doing?



SCENARIO 6

FOCUS ON THINKING VS FEELING HERE

You have a meeting with your college career counselor to discuss potential careers that interest you. He/she offers you a list of the following careers and asks you to pick your TOP 3. He/she asks you to take money out of the equation. Imagine all of these careers received equal compensation. Focus instead on where you would truly feel most happy and fulfilled.

Artist, Scientist, Actor, Engineer, Musician, Lawyer, Counselor, Entrepreneur, Teacher, Manager, Psychologist, Computer Programmer / Analyst, Clergy, Child Care, Medical Doctor


- What were your top 3 choices and what aspects of these careers appeal to you?

- Was it difficult or easy to pick only 3 and why?

- Prioritize the aspects of your career choices that influenced your decision, what things mattered most to you, where do you imagine finding the most fulfillment and why?



SCENARIO 7

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?

View attachment 295170

- Describe the main things that stand out to you in this picture.

- Why do you think/feel you focused on those things?

- Describe the strength with which this photo did or did not appeal to you and why?



 

Scenario 1
The purpose here is to try to get a sense of Fe or Fi from the feelings / reaction they describe. Pay close attention to what the individual talks about as that is typically where their focus lies. Look beyond the decisions and try to discern what is motivating and driving the decision.

Fe:

  • May describe feeling overwhelmed, numb, or confused about their own emotions (especially if tertiary or inferior Fe)
  • May try to assume or describe what their SO might be feeling
  • Their own feelings may be strongly influenced or even overwritten by what they assume their SO is feeling
  • Any decisions they make will be strongly influenced by what they perceive their SO is feeling as well as the outcome for themselves and their SO
Fi:

  • May very clearly describe exactly what and how they would be feeling in response to their SO’s actions
  • May express confusion as to what their SO is feeling or a desire to try and understand their feelings
  • Their own feelings will be clear and independent from whatever their SO might be feeling
  • Any decisions they make will be strongly influenced by what they feel is the right thing to do independent of the outcome on their SO

Things to be aware of

  • Pay attention to “T” analytical influence and approach to this scenario, may indicate T dom over F dom
  • Avoid stereotyping based on decisions made. Both Fi and Fe can display empathy for example
    • ex: insisting on staying by their SO’s side until the end. They each get to the decision by a different cognitive path.
    • Fi – because they determine it is the right thing to do.
    • Fe – Because of perceived negative effect on SO or themselves if they don't
    • Keep in mind there may not be an extreme noticable difference, both Fi and Fe can consider both, They each give a bit more emphasis and priority to one over the other
Scenario 2
The purpose here again is to try and get a sense of Fe or Fi influence on decisions. Pay close attention to what the individual talks most about as that is likely where their F focus lies. Look beyond the decisions and try to discern what is motivating and driving the decision.

Fe:

  • Will express possible outcomes on individuals involved based on various decisions
  • Decision will be mostly focused on the outcome of individuals involved ie: roommate, self, professor
  • Determining what is the right or wrong decision will be heavily influenced by outcome
Fi

  • Will express value judgments about the situation ie: what they perceive is right or wrong
  • Decision will be mostly focused on their internal sense of the right thing to do independent of outcome
  • Determining what is right or wrong will be heavily influenced by personal values

Things to be aware of

  • Do not stereotype based on the decision made, look for the influence behind the decision
    • Ex: Fe may decide not to help because they determine it is a temporary fix for their roommate and in the long run it will help them more to let them learn from this experience on their own
    • Ex: Fi may decide to help because they don’t place much value on the professors definition of right or wrong, instead they determine that letting their roommate struggle is wrong
  • Both outcome and personal values may be evident in the decision making process of both Fe and Fi, pay attention to which seems to have the stronger influence.
  • Fi does NOT mean “selfish” and Fe does NOT always mean a focus on the other person. Ex: Fe can also have an outcome focus that is based on what would happen to themselves if they decide to help

Scenario 3
The purpose of this scenario is to try and get a sense of Te or Ti in their logical thought process. Pay close attention to what the individual talks most about that appeals or does not appeal to them about each project. Look beyond the decisions and try to discern what is influencing motivating their choice. It may not necessarily be T… it could be N or social introversion / extroversion. Factor in the Fe vs Fi assessment from the first two scenarios. Fe would be paired with Ti and Fi would be paired with Te.

Te

  • Strong Te may express enjoyment in logically working through problems with outside influence / stimuli (Primary, Tert Ne influence paired with Te increases the likelihood of this)
  • Strong Te may express a desire for relevancy, real world application, effect on the company
  • Tert / Inf Te being influenced by Ni may choose to work alone because group idea generation doesn’t appeal to them. The expansive nature of the project may also intimidate them.
  • Tert / Inf Te being influenced by Fi may choose to work alone because of past experience with group members not pulling their weight or living up to their standards
Ti

  • Strong Ti may express enjoyment in logically digging in to a singular problem preferring to be left alone to “think” (Primary, Tert Ni influence paired with Ti increases the likelihood of this)
  • Strong Ti may express a desire to fundamentally understand something as well as show a lack of concern for relevancy or real world application
  • Tert / Inf Ti being influenced by Ne may choose to work in a group because collective brainstorming appeals to them. The narrow focus of the individual project may bore them.
  • Tert / Inf Ti being influenced by Fe may choose to work in a group because the socialization aspect and group decision making sounds fun.

Things to be aware of

  • Depending on F / T dominance and N influence… this could end up being a much better determination of extroversion / introversion especially with tertiary and inferior T

Scenario 4
The purpose of this scenario is to again try and get a sense of Te or Ti in their logical thought process. Pay close attention to how the individual’s logical process operates when forced into a social setting where they are receiving input of ideas and possible directions for the project. Look beyond the decisions and try to discern what logical process is influencing their behavior. Be aware of strong Ne / Ni influence here.

Te

  • Strong Te may try to step up and take leadership to try and logically put together the ideas being discussed
  • Strong Te may have a much more broad encompassing focus to trying to logically unify everyone ie: group voting
  • Ne influence will also motivate them to help drive idea generation
  • Strong Ne influence will be more driven to generate possibilities rather than externally organize them
  • Primary Ni/Si with tertiary Fi may mask Te here and seem like Ti, idea generation may be suppressed and more internal and narrowly focused (Ni), decision may be more personal value focused (Fi)
Ti

  • Strong Ti may choose to sit back and absorb the ideas, piecing them together internally. They may or may not choose to speak out eventually describing what they have brought together.
  • Strong Ti may have a much more narrow focus, internally picking and trying to unify the best of what was presented
  • Ni influence will increase the likelihood of silent observation as well as the internal unification process
  • Strong Ni influence will be much more driven to internally putting together the best possible course of action ie: deciding logically what they consider is the best direction for the group
  • Primary Ne/Se with tertiary Fe may mask Ti here and seem like Te, behavior may be more broad and encompassing, consist of participation in idea generation (Ne), trying to include the whole group in the decision (Fe)

Things to be aware of
  • F vs T dominance again plays a big role here especially if is a primary / inferior separation. Be aware of the possibility of strong F influence on their decision.
  • N extroversion / introversion also plays a role in their behavior. Alignment with T extroversion / introversion connects the idea generation / logical process together thus strengthening the T effect on behavior. Opposing extroversion / introversion may connect more and align with F and mask the T effect on behavior.
  • Pay attention to the possible strength and clarity of F vs T in the scenarios thus far. In a Primary / Inferior combo one will seem very clear the other may be ambiguous or even seem like the opposite of what it is. In an Auxiliary / Tertiary combo both may be fairly clear and align with each other but which is dominant over the other may not.

Scenario 5
This scenario is meant to determine social introversion / extroversion and determine whether they generate their own energy internally or need to draw it in from external sources.

Introversion

  • May prefer individual tasks that focus on things that interest them or are important to them
  • May show more of a 1 on 1 or intimate focus to socialization
Extroversion

  • May prefer activities that provide external stimuli and/or social interaction
  • May not show any social anxiety preferring a greater amount of social interaction

Things to be aware of
  • Pay attention to the extroverted / introverted behaviors shown in scenario 3.
  • Primary Ne with aux Ti or Fi may look more introverted because Ne doesn’t necessarily seek out socialization, just external stimuli which could be something like a book or a movie. For example: This is why ENTP is considered the most introverted of the extroverted types, Primary Ne paired with Auxiliary Ti.
  • The opposite effect can also manifest in auxiliary Fe users as Fe is a very socially extroverted function.

Scenario 6
This scenario is meant to assess the strength of F vs T as well as what is primarily motivating their choice. Be aware of the influence of the inferior function here as well.

Primary T

  • May express more desire for doing things that pertain to analysis and logical thought

Primary F

  • May express more desire for self-expression or focus on affecting people

Aux / Tert F and T

  • May express both motives from above

Things to be aware of


    • Combine this with the F / T assessment from scenario 1-4 as well as the introvert / extrovert assessment from scenario 3 and 5
    • Both Fe and Te seek broad external relevance on people and/or society in general, if this desire is expressed try to discern whether it comes from an F or T influence.
    • Fi influence may be trying to champion a specific cause meaning something in there personal experience caused them to put significant value on a certain cause: ex: helping children overcome abuse
    • Ti influence may gravitate more towards individual analytical / logical type work
    • Be aware of possible abstract N / objective S influence on F and T here.
    • At this point you should have a fairly clear idea of introversion / extroversion as well as Fe/Ti vs Fi/Te. Use the key below to logically narrow down possible primary functions and types. You should be able to narrow it down to 2-4 possibilities here.

Introvert w/ Fe-Ti: Primary or Tertiary function could be Ti

  • Strong T influence indicates primary Ti: ISTP / INTP
  • Ambiguous F / T influence indicating auxiliary Fe and tertiary Ti: ISFJ / INFJ

Extrovert w/ Fe-Ti: Primary or Tertiary function could be Fe

  • Strong F influence indicates primary Fe: ESFJ / ENFJ
  • Ambiguous F / T influence indicates auxiliary Ti and tertiary Fe: ESTP / ENTP

Introvert w/ Fi-Te: Primary or Tertiary function could be Fi

  • Strong F influence indicates primary Fi: ISFP / INFP
  • Ambiguous F / T influence indicates auxiliary Te and tertiary Fi: ISTJ / INTJ

Extrovert w/ Fi-Te: Primary or Tertiary function could be Te

  • Strong T influence indicates primary Te: ESTJ / ENTJ
  • Ambiguous F / T influence indicates auxiliary Fi and tertiary Te: ESFP / ENFP


Scenario 7
This is primarily meant to determine the strength of N vs S however you can also tell a lot about F and T from the descriptions used here.


  • T influence: Will take a more analytical approach to interpreting the image
  • F influence: Will describe feelings that the image presents to the individual
  • Se influence: Try to take in the big picture all at once, could express being overwhelmed sensory wise
  • Si influence: May focus on and notice details, color contrast, textures, may also describe physical sensations they would feel if there
  • Ne influence: May express and generate many ideas, concepts, possibilities, patterns in relation to specific details
  • Ni influence: May seek a singular and fundamental meaning behind the image, may also have a desire to explore and see more than what is there and/or imagine what could be

Things to be aware of


    • Primary / Inferior combo of F and T implies Auxiliary / Tertiary combo of N and S and vice versa
    • Consider introversion and extroversion in determining primary function possibilities
    • Between Scenario 6 and 7 a dominant function should become clear and you should be able to logically narrow things down to 1 or two possible types.
    • If the strength of S vs N is ambiguous here it could mean primary F or T. Introversion vs Extroversion should tell you which is primary. Attempt to determine Ni / Se or Ne / Si in order to determine exact type
    • If the strength of S vs N is clear it could mean F and T is ambiguous, introversion / extroversion should line up with primary Si / Se or Ni / Ne and thus allow you to determine exact type.

SCENARIO 1

FOCUS ON YOUR FEELING PROCESS HERE

Your significant other just ended your 2 year relationship quite suddenly and with no apparent explanation. Up until this point you had both been talking about marriage and last week you even went to look at rings together. Now he/she won't even return your phone calls or texts. After talking with his/her family you find out that he/she has just been diagnosed with terminal stage 4 cancer.

- Describe how this scenario would make you feel as well as what sort of influences and motivations lie behind those feelings. Why do you feel the way you do?

Well, fuck. At first I'd be pissed and just annoyed until I found out why. And then try to make bad jokes about them dying on me, while like trying to make them more comfortable and be shit bed side manner but try to like do whatever I can to like make their last months on earth marginally better and panic and break down in secret. Maybe Go a bit crazy and try to figure out a way to cheat death on the side including like medical advancements, trials, and up to like making them a lich.

- In this scenario what would you honestly say the primary focus of your feelings would be?

probably shock, realistically, but also it would super charge my motivation to focus on this shit and try to save them.




SCENARIO 2

FOCUS ON YOUR FEELING PROCESS HERE

You are in college and this semester both you and your roommate end up in the same class together. You and your roommate get along fairly well and the living situation works but you aren't particularly close. You both typically do your own thing and are rather indifferent to each other. As the semester progresses you excel and become one of the top students in the class whereas your roommate is struggling significantly to grasp the material. The professor assigns a fairly challenging take home test that is a significant portion of your grade. He/she makes it clear that while it is open book, students are to work alone. Later your roommate comes to you begging for help after struggling with the test most of the weekend. You have already completed the assignment and he/she isn't asking to copy your answers, just to help tutor and mentor them as they struggle to complete the test, so there is no way your professor would ever know. However, this is the first time your room-mate has asked you for help this semester. He/she makes it clear that how they do on this test could mean the difference between passing and failing this class.

- How do you respond to your roommate’s request and why?

I'd help the roomate. It's not giving the answers, if they fail I may get a shittier roomate, also the person did try most of the weekend. It's open book, like technically I'd be within the rules to highlight all the right answers in my book and walk away and the question isn't even doing that. So sure

- What sort of things in this scenario stand out to you as far as having a strong influence on your decision making and why?

They did spend time on it and tried and asked, besides it's open book. Like.... There are very exploitable guidelines here while still following rules so sure.


- Describe the flow of your decision making process.

It's listed above, I think.



SCENARIO 3

FOCUS ON YOUR LOGIC AND THINKING PROCESS HERE

Your boss calls you into his/her office in order to assign you to a new project. He/she gives you a choice between two.

Project 1 is a rather broad, expansive project covering multiple areas of company operations. It has the potential to have a very significant impact on company operations but it would require a collective effort and an extensive amount of group work where you would be logically thinking through the project together with the group of individuals your boss has also assigned to it.

Project 2 has a much more specific and narrow focus and would require a significant amount of in depth individual analysis to work through the problem. You would be working alone and the completion of the project may or may not have much impact on company operations. However, after complete the process and problem you were working on will be streamlined and fundamentally understood.

- Which project appeals to you the most, as it relates to the way you prefer to logically process information? Why?
project 2. There are less distractions, I like working alone and I really enjoy figuring out how things work and why.

- What sort of things in this scenario, across either project, stood out to you as having a strong influence on your decision? Why?

i don't like group projects, but also 2 just sounds more interesting overall. I don't really care how efficient it is for the company tbh.



SCENARIO 4

FOCUS ON YOUR LOGIC AND THINKING PROCESS HERE

Your college professor has assigned you to a group project with 3 other individuals. All 3 of these individuals have a good strong work ethic and desire to contribute to the overall success of this project. You are at the first meeting of your group and the other members are tossing around valuable ideas as to the nature and direction of this project.


- Describe your behavior in this situation as you process and think about the ideas they are presenting.
Eh? Id almost prefer people who would just let me do all of it, but actually doing their part is good. I'd listen and generate ideas

- Describe what major influences drive this behavior.
trying to be nice and not annoyed by the group project but also like worrying about it more than needed


SCENARIO 5

FOCUS ON THE SOURCES YOU DRAW NON-PHYSICAL ENERGY FROM HERE

It has been a very long week and you feel mentally and emotionally drained, but good news! It is Saturday and you have nothing significant that needs to be done. You FINALLY have some free time to yourself to recharge your batteries and do whatever you want.

- Describe what sort of activities would help you to recharge. What would you enjoy doing after a long week and why?

A bath, a walk in nature, going somewhere unusual to explore, or a board game night with friends

- What sort of things do you feel you draw non-physical energy from doing?

The above, but also just day dreaming and thinking and planning nonsensical things for fun

SCENARIO 6

FOCUS ON THINKING VS FEELING HERE

You have a meeting with your college career counselor to discuss potential careers that interest you. He/she offers you a list of the following careers and asks you to pick your TOP 3. He/she asks you to take money out of the equation. Imagine all of these careers received equal compensation. Focus instead on where you would truly feel most happy and fulfilled.

Artist, Scientist, Actor, Engineer, Musician, Lawyer, Counselor, Entrepreneur, Teacher, Manager, Psychologist, Computer Programmer / Analyst, Clergy, Child Care, Medical Doctor


- What were your top 3 choices and what aspects of these careers appeal to you?

Analyst - I do that shit in my free time
entrepreneur - why not? Seems interesting.
medical doctor but only if time traveling is possible so I can be an old timey doctor like "you've got ghost in your blood, you should do cocaine about it."
if that's not available, maybe psychology but like research psychology

- Was it difficult or easy to pick only 3 and why?
idk maybe some type of science or acting could be thrown in

- Prioritize the aspects of your career choices that influenced your decision, what things mattered most to you, where do you imagine finding the most fulfillment and why?

doing something Interesting , challenging to some extent, isn't entirely subjective and can be like monitored on progress and shit and doesn't require public speaking



SCENARIO 7

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?

View attachment 295170

- Describe the main things that stand out to you in this picture.
Why is there like a moss thing? It's green. Everything else is amber. Is this pride rock, a Stargate, hollow earth? Why is there a blurred out name? Is this a real pic? I assumed cgi
- Why do you think/feel you focused on those thing?

eh? Curiosity

- Describe the strength with which this photo did or did not appeal to you and why?


The water is dark. Seems like a good place for an evil squid over lord to hide. Also the name I can't read.

 

Scenario 1
The purpose here is to try to get a sense of Fe or Fi from the feelings / reaction they describe. Pay close attention to what the individual talks about as that is typically where their focus lies. Look beyond the decisions and try to discern what is motivating and driving the decision.

Fe:

  • May describe feeling overwhelmed, numb, or confused about their own emotions (especially if tertiary or inferior Fe)
  • May try to assume or describe what their SO might be feeling
  • Their own feelings may be strongly influenced or even overwritten by what they assume their SO is feeling
  • Any decisions they make will be strongly influenced by what they perceive their SO is feeling as well as the outcome for themselves and their SO
Fi:

  • May very clearly describe exactly what and how they would be feeling in response to their SO’s actions
  • May express confusion as to what their SO is feeling or a desire to try and understand their feelings
  • Their own feelings will be clear and independent from whatever their SO might be feeling
  • Any decisions they make will be strongly influenced by what they feel is the right thing to do independent of the outcome on their SO

Things to be aware of

  • Pay attention to “T” analytical influence and approach to this scenario, may indicate T dom over F dom
  • Avoid stereotyping based on decisions made. Both Fi and Fe can display empathy for example
    • ex: insisting on staying by their SO’s side until the end. They each get to the decision by a different cognitive path.
    • Fi – because they determine it is the right thing to do.
    • Fe – Because of perceived negative effect on SO or themselves if they don't
    • Keep in mind there may not be an extreme noticable difference, both Fi and Fe can consider both, They each give a bit more emphasis and priority to one over the other
Scenario 2
The purpose here again is to try and get a sense of Fe or Fi influence on decisions. Pay close attention to what the individual talks most about as that is likely where their F focus lies. Look beyond the decisions and try to discern what is motivating and driving the decision.

Fe:

  • Will express possible outcomes on individuals involved based on various decisions
  • Decision will be mostly focused on the outcome of individuals involved ie: roommate, self, professor
  • Determining what is the right or wrong decision will be heavily influenced by outcome
Fi

  • Will express value judgments about the situation ie: what they perceive is right or wrong
  • Decision will be mostly focused on their internal sense of the right thing to do independent of outcome
  • Determining what is right or wrong will be heavily influenced by personal values

Things to be aware of

  • Do not stereotype based on the decision made, look for the influence behind the decision
    • Ex: Fe may decide not to help because they determine it is a temporary fix for their roommate and in the long run it will help them more to let them learn from this experience on their own
    • Ex: Fi may decide to help because they don’t place much value on the professors definition of right or wrong, instead they determine that letting their roommate struggle is wrong
  • Both outcome and personal values may be evident in the decision making process of both Fe and Fi, pay attention to which seems to have the stronger influence.
  • Fi does NOT mean “selfish” and Fe does NOT always mean a focus on the other person. Ex: Fe can also have an outcome focus that is based on what would happen to themselves if they decide to help

Scenario 3
The purpose of this scenario is to try and get a sense of Te or Ti in their logical thought process. Pay close attention to what the individual talks most about that appeals or does not appeal to them about each project. Look beyond the decisions and try to discern what is influencing motivating their choice. It may not necessarily be T… it could be N or social introversion / extroversion. Factor in the Fe vs Fi assessment from the first two scenarios. Fe would be paired with Ti and Fi would be paired with Te.

Te

  • Strong Te may express enjoyment in logically working through problems with outside influence / stimuli (Primary, Tert Ne influence paired with Te increases the likelihood of this)
  • Strong Te may express a desire for relevancy, real world application, effect on the company
  • Tert / Inf Te being influenced by Ni may choose to work alone because group idea generation doesn’t appeal to them. The expansive nature of the project may also intimidate them.
  • Tert / Inf Te being influenced by Fi may choose to work alone because of past experience with group members not pulling their weight or living up to their standards
Ti

  • Strong Ti may express enjoyment in logically digging in to a singular problem preferring to be left alone to “think” (Primary, Tert Ni influence paired with Ti increases the likelihood of this)
  • Strong Ti may express a desire to fundamentally understand something as well as show a lack of concern for relevancy or real world application
  • Tert / Inf Ti being influenced by Ne may choose to work in a group because collective brainstorming appeals to them. The narrow focus of the individual project may bore them.
  • Tert / Inf Ti being influenced by Fe may choose to work in a group because the socialization aspect and group decision making sounds fun.

Things to be aware of

  • Depending on F / T dominance and N influence… this could end up being a much better determination of extroversion / introversion especially with tertiary and inferior T

Scenario 4
The purpose of this scenario is to again try and get a sense of Te or Ti in their logical thought process. Pay close attention to how the individual’s logical process operates when forced into a social setting where they are receiving input of ideas and possible directions for the project. Look beyond the decisions and try to discern what logical process is influencing their behavior. Be aware of strong Ne / Ni influence here.

Te

  • Strong Te may try to step up and take leadership to try and logically put together the ideas being discussed
  • Strong Te may have a much more broad encompassing focus to trying to logically unify everyone ie: group voting
  • Ne influence will also motivate them to help drive idea generation
  • Strong Ne influence will be more driven to generate possibilities rather than externally organize them
  • Primary Ni/Si with tertiary Fi may mask Te here and seem like Ti, idea generation may be suppressed and more internal and narrowly focused (Ni), decision may be more personal value focused (Fi)
Ti

  • Strong Ti may choose to sit back and absorb the ideas, piecing them together internally. They may or may not choose to speak out eventually describing what they have brought together.
  • Strong Ti may have a much more narrow focus, internally picking and trying to unify the best of what was presented
  • Ni influence will increase the likelihood of silent observation as well as the internal unification process
  • Strong Ni influence will be much more driven to internally putting together the best possible course of action ie: deciding logically what they consider is the best direction for the group
  • Primary Ne/Se with tertiary Fe may mask Ti here and seem like Te, behavior may be more broad and encompassing, consist of participation in idea generation (Ne), trying to include the whole group in the decision (Fe)

Things to be aware of
  • F vs T dominance again plays a big role here especially if is a primary / inferior separation. Be aware of the possibility of strong F influence on their decision.
  • N extroversion / introversion also plays a role in their behavior. Alignment with T extroversion / introversion connects the idea generation / logical process together thus strengthening the T effect on behavior. Opposing extroversion / introversion may connect more and align with F and mask the T effect on behavior.
  • Pay attention to the possible strength and clarity of F vs T in the scenarios thus far. In a Primary / Inferior combo one will seem very clear the other may be ambiguous or even seem like the opposite of what it is. In an Auxiliary / Tertiary combo both may be fairly clear and align with each other but which is dominant over the other may not.

Scenario 5
This scenario is meant to determine social introversion / extroversion and determine whether they generate their own energy internally or need to draw it in from external sources.

Introversion

  • May prefer individual tasks that focus on things that interest them or are important to them
  • May show more of a 1 on 1 or intimate focus to socialization
Extroversion

  • May prefer activities that provide external stimuli and/or social interaction
  • May not show any social anxiety preferring a greater amount of social interaction

Things to be aware of
  • Pay attention to the extroverted / introverted behaviors shown in scenario 3.
  • Primary Ne with aux Ti or Fi may look more introverted because Ne doesn’t necessarily seek out socialization, just external stimuli which could be something like a book or a movie. For example: This is why ENTP is considered the most introverted of the extroverted types, Primary Ne paired with Auxiliary Ti.
  • The opposite effect can also manifest in auxiliary Fe users as Fe is a very socially extroverted function.

Scenario 6
This scenario is meant to assess the strength of F vs T as well as what is primarily motivating their choice. Be aware of the influence of the inferior function here as well.

Primary T

  • May express more desire for doing things that pertain to analysis and logical thought

Primary F

  • May express more desire for self-expression or focus on affecting people

Aux / Tert F and T

  • May express both motives from above

Things to be aware of


    • Combine this with the F / T assessment from scenario 1-4 as well as the introvert / extrovert assessment from scenario 3 and 5
    • Both Fe and Te seek broad external relevance on people and/or society in general, if this desire is expressed try to discern whether it comes from an F or T influence.
    • Fi influence may be trying to champion a specific cause meaning something in there personal experience caused them to put significant value on a certain cause: ex: helping children overcome abuse
    • Ti influence may gravitate more towards individual analytical / logical type work
    • Be aware of possible abstract N / objective S influence on F and T here.
    • At this point you should have a fairly clear idea of introversion / extroversion as well as Fe/Ti vs Fi/Te. Use the key below to logically narrow down possible primary functions and types. You should be able to narrow it down to 2-4 possibilities here.

Introvert w/ Fe-Ti: Primary or Tertiary function could be Ti

  • Strong T influence indicates primary Ti: ISTP / INTP
  • Ambiguous F / T influence indicating auxiliary Fe and tertiary Ti: ISFJ / INFJ

Extrovert w/ Fe-Ti: Primary or Tertiary function could be Fe

  • Strong F influence indicates primary Fe: ESFJ / ENFJ
  • Ambiguous F / T influence indicates auxiliary Ti and tertiary Fe: ESTP / ENTP

Introvert w/ Fi-Te: Primary or Tertiary function could be Fi

  • Strong F influence indicates primary Fi: ISFP / INFP
  • Ambiguous F / T influence indicates auxiliary Te and tertiary Fi: ISTJ / INTJ

Extrovert w/ Fi-Te: Primary or Tertiary function could be Te

  • Strong T influence indicates primary Te: ESTJ / ENTJ
  • Ambiguous F / T influence indicates auxiliary Fi and tertiary Te: ESFP / ENFP


Scenario 7
This is primarily meant to determine the strength of N vs S however you can also tell a lot about F and T from the descriptions used here.


  • T influence: Will take a more analytical approach to interpreting the image
  • F influence: Will describe feelings that the image presents to the individual
  • Se influence: Try to take in the big picture all at once, could express being overwhelmed sensory wise
  • Si influence: May focus on and notice details, color contrast, textures, may also describe physical sensations they would feel if there
  • Ne influence: May express and generate many ideas, concepts, possibilities, patterns in relation to specific details
  • Ni influence: May seek a singular and fundamental meaning behind the image, may also have a desire to explore and see more than what is there and/or imagine what could be

Things to be aware of


    • Primary / Inferior combo of F and T implies Auxiliary / Tertiary combo of N and S and vice versa
    • Consider introversion and extroversion in determining primary function possibilities
    • Between Scenario 6 and 7 a dominant function should become clear and you should be able to logically narrow things down to 1 or two possible types.
    • If the strength of S vs N is ambiguous here it could mean primary F or T. Introversion vs Extroversion should tell you which is primary. Attempt to determine Ni / Se or Ne / Si in order to determine exact type
    • If the strength of S vs N is clear it could mean F and T is ambiguous, introversion / extroversion should line up with primary Si / Se or Ni / Ne and thus allow you to determine exact type.

SCENARIO 1
The beginning of this questionnaire already got me cornered, but sure I’ll try to describe my “feelings”.
I guess I would get totally confused if my s.o suddenly ended our relationship with no apparent reason. I would like us to talk things through especially after discovering the truth. I would like to be there for them, to be able to support them. I would be sad that they got diagnosed with cancer, maybe also a bit angry at life for being so unfair. I would try to do everything in my power to make them happy because I love them.
My focus on this scenario would end up on my s.o, on their happiness.
Definitely getting a strong extroverted feeling (Fe) vibe here with your focus being externally on your SO's happiness.

SCENARIO 2
I would end up helping my roommate. They didn’t ask to copy my anwers they just wanted me to help tutor and mentor them. It would cost me nothing, it is just a simple favor and I have already done my assignment, so why not lending an helping hand? The professor would never know about it and I get to do a good deed, I see this as a win-win situation. Since it looks like I’m one of the top students in the class and this test could mean the difference between passing and failing the class, I would try to do my best.
Again I'm sensing Fe as motivating your decision

SCENARIO 3
I can say without doubt that I would choose the second project. The first project is too broad so I would’ve difficulty working through it efficiently, I prefer much more to concentrate deeply in an individual work so my mental energies can’t get too scattered. The possibility to work alone would appeal to me because just the idea of working through the project together with a group of individuals seems exhausting enough. I wouldn’t dismiss them just for so little, but If we can’t collaborate well it would also have a significant impact on company operations, I wouldn’t like to assume such responsibility.
Assuming you were focusing on your thinking process here I would say this is very introverted thinking (Ti).

SCENARIO 4
I would probably listen to which ideas they are tossing around, but after a while if they can’t stop brainstorming I would suggest them to narrow down first the nature and the direction of the project. It’s good that they are able to get many valuable ideas but we can’t also waste time sitting there with no actual progress in the project. After we are able to narrow it down, they’re free to brainstorm as much as they want. Also I’d like for us to define clearly who is going to do what, so we don’t end up messing up.
Listening to everyone's ideas and trying to narrow the nature and direction is a very Ti thing to do.

SCENARIO 5
I would probably pass my time listening to music while reading a book, add a nice cup of tea, my comfy bed and we’re good to go. Maybe I will also chat with my friends on discord if feel like it, they can help me relax. Watching something in company, playing games are very helpful in such situations. I like doing things that don’t require much energy since when I am exhausted I don’t like to overexert myself.

I always thought that music is really a powerful instrument, a good song can make my mood get better in an instant. Music is my secret not so secret battery charger.
Most of these are very individual things that don't require interacting with others. Seems like you are primarily an introvert meaning your primary cognitive function will be introverted; either Si / Ti / or Ni at this point

SCENARIO 6
My top choices (not in order) would be Musician, Psychologist and Medical Doctor.
  • I would like to be a musician since I’ve always loved music, like I said above music has a healing effect on me and I’m quite sure that there are others that feel this way too. Sadly I don’t know to play any instrument, but I would like to learn at least one one day. I know that being a musician is diffult nowadays, but just the thought of being able to connect to someone else through my music makes me totally satisfied.
  • I would like to be psychologist because I always thought it was a very interesting job, to be able to “read” into another one’s thoughts it’s scary and exciting at the same time. The main reason I would like to be a psychologist is to be able to help people with their problems and prevent suicides. I already lost someone over it and I would never want others to experience the same thing.
  • I would like to be a medical doctor to be able to help other people just like my mom. I always felt guilty that my mom got diagnosed with diabetes since I was born and because of that her body constitution is very bad. I want to be able to help people with financial problems. Even thought my country isn’t the best, free health care is very helpful for my family’s situation.
The possibility of helping others is what I find the most fulfilling with a career as a psychologist and doctor, in a certain way being a musician could be a helpful job. I’m also worried about those career choices since I’m not good with emotions and/or people.
Strangely enough it wasn’t very difficult to pick only 3 choices, maybe because i felt that those 3 careers spoke to me in a certain way.
You seem to be more motivated by your feelings / value judgements rather than logic or thinking process here so I would say F over T at this point. Most likely secondary Fe and tertiary Ti.

SCENARIO 7
The first thing I noticed was how saturated the canyon’s colour looked like, the colour is very vibrant and the contrast with the dark sides makes the the illuminated area stand out. I really like how smooth the lines of the canyon looks like, I’m curious about how the texture feels like. I also find the contrast betwen the green trees and the dry ones very interesting, kinda like an oxymoron in nature. I feel like the river part of the picture is too dark, maybe a little more light would’ve helped.
It is a very interesting picture, I would have probably used it as a wallpaper if the picture was lighter. I think that the contrast of colors is the strenght of this photo, the picture could be kinda split in half: the upper half is connected to warmer tones while the lower half is more connected to colder tones. Overall opinion: a very nice realistic drawing.
Definitely getting a lot of introverted sensing analysis in the way you described the photo with a hint of extroverted intuition; wondering about the texture and describing the trees as an oxymoron in nature. I would say Primary Si over inferior Ne. If my analysis is right this would make you an ISFJ (Si, Fe, Ti, Ne). Thanks so much for taking the time to take my test. Hope this helps!

I did this questionnaire but still had trouble figuring out my type and want to post it here for help:

I would feel devastated, my heart would already be broken from the breakup and then the addition of cancer is like salt to the wound. The motivation for these feelings would come from my love for this person.

My feelings would be focused on the relationship between us and how we can move forward.
Hard to tell from your answers but I get a bit of an introverted feeling (Fi) vibe here.

I would help them, the professor won’t know.

The fact that we are roommates, because if I let them down they might be aggravated at me and that would make living with them uneasy.

I don’t want to upset my roommate and helping them doesn’t seem like a big problem since the professor won’t know.
Again hard to tell, not wanting to upset your room mate is a very Fe thing to say but I think you are primarily using internal value judgments here so again Fi

The second project because it seems much more straightforward.

The narrow focus and in depth analysis sound more appealing to me because I have trouble with projects that are too vague.
Hmm... this is an introverted thinking type of choice however I think you are still making decisions with Fi here which is masking Te

I stay silent and let them pass around their ideas.

I probably have no idea what to do and listening to their conversation might help me come up with ideas.
Staying silent is definitely being influenced by either Fi or Ti here but listening to their ideas to help you formulate your own is kind of Te.


Watch, read, play, or listen to things I’ve meant to listen to for a long time.

Learning and experiencing new things.
Definitely introverted activities meaning your primary function is an introverted one. My guess at this point is primary Fi.

Actor, musician, and psychologist. Because I already have interest in those areas.

It was very easy because they all pertain to my interests and would probably enjoy doing them.

The artistic nature of acting and musicianship, I also am fascinated by the aspects of psychology.
Your reasons describing why you picked your choices seem very much based in introverted value judgments ie: "I have interest in those areas"; which leads me to believe based on your previous responses that you are using introverted feeling here over extroverted thinking.

The trees and the water.

They stand out because of their color and texture.

This photo doesn’t really appeal to me mostly due to the color of the rocks, but the trees and the water are nice.
Hard to say here, the more detailed your answers the easier it is for me to tell but if I had to take a stab I would say Sensing over Intuition. Overall you seem highly driven by primary Fi. If my analysis is correct that would make you an ISFP (Fi, Se, Ni, Te). Alternately I could have your judgment values reversed and you could very well be ISTP (Ti, Se, Ni, Fe). What do you think? Hope this helps narrow things down for you.

Well, fuck. At first I'd be pissed and just annoyed until I found out why. And then try to make bad jokes about them dying on me, while like trying to make them more comfortable and be shit bed side manner but try to like do whatever I can to like make their last months on earth marginally better and panic and break down in secret. Maybe Go a bit crazy and try to figure out a way to cheat death on the side including like medical advancements, trials, and up to like making them a lich.

probably shock, realistically, but also it would super charge my motivation to focus on this shit and try to save them.
Getting an Fe vibe here

I'd help the roomate. It's not giving the answers, if they fail I may get a shittier roomate, also the person did try most of the weekend. It's open book, like technically I'd be within the rules to highlight all the right answers in my book and walk away and the question isn't even doing that. So sure

They did spend time on it and tried and asked, besides it's open book. Like.... There are very exploitable guidelines here while still following rules so sure.

It's listed above, I think.
Again more Fe
project 2. There are less distractions, I like working alone and I really enjoy figuring out how things work and why.

i don't like group projects
, but also 2 just sounds more interesting overall. I don't really care how efficient it is for the company tbh.
Definitely Ti here

Eh? Id almost prefer people who would just let me do all of it, but actually doing their part is good. I'd listen and generate ideas

trying to be nice and not annoyed by the group project but also like worrying about it more than needed
More Ti for sure.

A bath, a walk in nature, going somewhere unusual to explore, or a board game night with friends

The above, but also just day dreaming and thinking and planning nonsensical things for fun
Hard to tell here it seems introverted at first glance but I think maybe extroverted over introverted. I sense strong extroverted intuition in you.

Analyst - I do that shit in my free time
entrepreneur - why not? Seems interesting.
medical doctor but only if time traveling is possible so I can be an old timey doctor like "you've got ghost in your blood, you should do cocaine about it."
if that's not available, maybe psychology but like research psychology

idk maybe some type of science or acting could be thrown in

doing something Interesting , challenging to some extent, isn't entirely subjective and can be like monitored on progress and shit and doesn't require public speaking
I'm going to say thinking over feeling here.
Why is there like a moss thing? It's green. Everything else is amber. Is this pride rock, a Stargate, hollow earth? Why is there a blurred out name? Is this a real pic? I assumed cgi

eh? Curiosity

The water is dark. Seems like a good place for an evil squid over lord to hide. Also the name I can't read.
Ok you literally ooze extroverted intuition here and throughout the whole questionnaire to be honest; definitely your primary function. If my analysis is correct this would make you an ENTP (Ne, Ti, Fe, Si)

Scenario 1
Up till that point, I would have felt very lost. This is someone I deeply care for. I would also feel guilty for probably doubting him, and helpless. That helplessness would spur me to reach out to his family to help me get in touch with him. I’d need to convince him that I know he must be hurting, I don’t want to ask anything of him other than not to cast me out. I would want to do anything to help him realize that I’m not scared and won’t run away or abandon him.

The primary focus of my feelings is to let him know that I am not someone he has to hide away from, or be scared from.
Sensing Fe here


Scenario 2
I would obviously want to help them. I don’t believe that that would be against the rules, plus this is really important. I also don’t mind that we have been indifferent to one another.. that’s probably because we don’t have much in common. I don’t hold that against them. I’ll try to help them figure out the answers for themselves. I might point them out to how they could do that, let them borrow my notes, and explain anything else.

I said that I don’t think that’s against the rules, but I’d feel slightly conflicted still and probably a bit burdened too. But if it was me in their position, the last thing I’d want is to hear a “no” when I’m struggling already.
Definitely more Fe

Scenario 3
I’d prefer the second one. Explaining what I do to a group of people would be wildly exhausting, and I might detest the whole thing. Working independently would allow me much more time to focus on the thing being done… feels like I could do whatever with it. Working in multiple areas with other people sounds to people-y, not enough time and space for the actual project.
A very Ti answer

Scenario 4
Oh boy. I can’t even. No, I wouldn’t be judging their ideas, but I just wouldn’t even know where to begin. It would sound like words just all tangled together in the air. If I had an idea, I’d probably come up with it later, or someone else would have to say it in a way that everyone else would listen to it, then I’d just have to agree. I wouldn’t be interjecting unless I see a potential problem.. yeah, my mind wouldn’t be in a generating mode as it would be when I work alone, it would be in a troubleshooting mode.
More Ti here and possible Ni too.

Scenario 5
First of all, nothing. I’d like to do the closest thing to nothing. Nap, cook something easy, read or watch something, maybe go out to do something very minimal like get coffee and sit around. I want to be very passive, like just taking in things and not bothering to produce something that requires more than minimal effort. I probably draw energy from not engaging… Being relaxed is energizing.
Your primary function is definitely introverted.

Scenario 6
Artist, entrepreneur, teacher. It was difficult to pick because even in real life, I wouldn’t know. It mattered to me that these were something I sort of have liked to do in the past, have had interests in, and weren't impractical given what I know I can do. I think… teaching would be the most fulfilling. Like I said before, I like working and generating on my own and sort of streamlining info to something that others could interact with.
Hard to decide but I believe you are using thinking over feeling here. "This is what I like and what would be the most fulfilling" is a very value judgment (feeling) based statement; however streamlining info into something others can interact with is a very Ti thing to say. Over all I'm leaning towards logic and reason driving your decisions here.

Scenario 7
What stands out to me.. the intricacy of the walls? I’m not focusing on any one thing, really. But yeah, the jagged intricate walls, mainly, the colors and possible textures. This photo appealed to me, but I’ve seen more awe-striking scenes.
Not focusing on any one thing is a very Se thing to say... taking the image in as a whole. If my analysis is correct that would make you an ISTP (Ti, Se, Ni, Fe). Another possibility if I got scenario 6 wrong is INFJ (Ni Fe Ti Se) although I would expect to see much more Ni come out in scenario 7 if that were the case. Which do you feel fits you best?

To be honest I totally forgot that I did this and I don't really remember why I didn't write with that much detail. It's been suggested before on this website that I'm an ISFP and recently I was starting to lean towards this as being my type. I also feel that ISTP is also a very good possibility but I think that I'm more of a feeler.

Edit: Also I feel I should mention that I was leaning heavily towards 5w4 being my Enneagram type, which isn't very common for an ISFP. I'm guessing I might actually be a 4w5, though ISTP 5w4 isn't that uncommon of a pairing.
