quite a few, tbh. there's INFP[common mistype], ENFP, ENTJ, ESTJ, ESTP...
but certainly not: ESFJ, ISFJ, ESFP, ENFJ.
honestly, sometimes i don't even know if im INTJ or not. id rather stick with my enneagram type.
A number of people thought I was INTP. The same people, generally, thought I was into marijuana. I'm really just a bit spaced-out is all. Some people have accused me of being an F, but that is usually in a debate if they are trying to portray my points as a result of emotion so that they don't have to, you know, actually address them. I love being female.
ISTP is weirdly similar, but I doubt it would be a common mistype. ENTJ might be, as they are not stereotypically extravert. ISTJs might think they are INTJs but I don't think it works the other way around as much.
I think it's important to remember that neither Jung nor Meyers & Briggs intended for this to be a "typecast", you're this type or you're not. Rather it was meant to infer your typical responses to systems around you. I think it's too easy to just say, "Well folks, I'm an INTJ, so deal with it and move on."
I strongly suggest using the MBTI system more as a means for personal reflection, "This is how I will normally react/behave without thinking, but what would be a better option for me (if any)?" Obviously that is a perfect world situation. It can be very relieving to know that your "typical" behaviors are shared among others, but I don't think we should ever hide behind it as an excuse.
Also, we are all known to use all functions EI/SN/TF/JP in different ways at different times. When life is hard, I see myself default to INTJ. But when life is good, I tend to be very outgoing (E) and tend to be more open to P rather than J... so then the tests would likely tell me a lot of different things...
Just my 2 cents.
