Same thing happens to me, I believe I'm basically 50% F and 50% TIt's like ForsakenMe said, really.
It's curious, because I tend to be on a line between the two of them. I'm not so much INFP, as I'm not so much INTP.
The tests pointed out I'm an INFP, but I always wondered. "A lot of times I'm more like an INTP... it makes sense that I'm an INTP... in some ways".
To make it clear, I took that test in "mypersonality.info" and found out the "thinking" and "feeling" rate were almost 50%-50%, but feeling was slightly higher, and that's how the result was INFP.
Today I took that test again, after a long period of time. It pointed out 63% thinking and 37% feeling. So, I'm an INTP, now? hehe I don't know. I guess I'm too complicated.
Yes, I do hide in fear of vulnerability! It's baffling even to myself! When I like someone, I try to let him know I care through actions, by being attentive, considerate, and kind, but I allow none of my true feelings to show so as not to feel vulnerable. I act emotionless when I am really in love! It's like a guy has to be able to see through all of my defenses and patiently deal with them until they fall down or he is going to think I am simply not interested.my best friend is an INTP and one of the main differences between us is how we are with people.
i love relationships, anticipating falling in love , and putting myself in situations that i think will get me there faster.
in the end i always end up hurt, and i knew it from the start how it'd end.
so i long for a connection with people. i go out and wait for it to happen and it doesn't.
my INTP friend longs for the same thing BUT he knows better than to put himself out there like i do.
he longs for the same ideal connection with people that i do, but he isolates himself because he knows how it'll end.
so INFP's long for love controls them and INTP's long for love makes them hide in fear of the vulnerability.
maybe i'm wrong.
I like that you tend to consider all the possibilities first.I am less imaginative than INFPs. I love debating, while I have heard that INFPs don't. I am usually not hurt by criticism.
I analyze what people say or do for at least a day before I decide how I feel about it. I will choose not to feel anything until I have considered all of the possibilities. I am not certain if INFPs have a different approach, but I suspect that they do.
Haha that was pretty funny and sarcastic!INTPs... They are more of a "Thinker", and INFPs are more of a "Feeler".
Pretty similiar since their other letters are aligned with each other, lol!
