(Sorry about the tiny font, it just looks a lot neater to me.
Also if you have any other questions you'd like for me to answer,
please feel free to ask away~)


1) What aspect of your personality made you unsure of your type?
I was originally typed as INFJ, the first time I took a personality test.
Over the years, I have mistyped myself as ten types.

I doubt a lot, and I relate to a lot of descriptions as well.
Very confusing and difficult for me to figure myself out, in a sense.


2) What do you yearn for in life? Why?
A deeper connection and understanding of things.
I've always felt a little different from the rest of those around me.
Superficiality isn't something that attracts me,
I wish to just feel something more meaningful.
And to be with those who understand and feel those things too.


3) Think about a time where you felt like you were at your finest. Tell us what made you feel that way.
When I stopped worrying about what others thought of me.
When I stopped thinking about every tiny mistake and belittling myself.

I had an instance where I realized just how so many things don't matter,
How it's so insignificant what someone thinks, it's not worth crying over.
Learning to take pride in myself and to have more confidence, it speaks.

When I began to see how important it was to love myself.


4) What makes you feel inferior?
When someone acts, in a situation where it was my responsibility to do so.
Or when I had the opportunity to, but someone else took it.


5) What tends to weigh on your decisions? (Do you think about people, pro-cons, how you feel about it, etc.)
How it will affect someone else, and the possibilities of the outcome.
If it's worth the risk of doing.


6) When working on a project what is normally your emphasis? Do you like to have control of the outcome?
Most definitely, I love having control and trust myself to know what's best.
I want to get everything done as thorough and precise as possible,
To capture the objective and show I truly understand what is being asked of me.
I want to not only meet my expectations, but exceed them. I'm a bit of an overachiever.


7) Describe us a time where you had a lot of fun. How is your memory of it?
The summers during my high school years,
Where I'd be invited somewhere every day.
Just spending lots of time with those I love,
And knowing they really liked my company.

This also applies to a lot of days at work,
Playing with the children at daycare.

I just remember things people would say,
Feeling very bonded and emotional,
Like I could cry of happiness.

Also doing new activities that scared me before,
Like overcoming exciting things,
And seeing for myself how enjoyable it all is,
Just taking everything in and stop worrying.


8) When you want to learn something new, what feels more natural for you? (Are you more prone to be hands on, to theorize, to memorize, etc)
I find that I like to connect things to other things I understand to help me understand.
(I have no idea if that makes any sense??)
Metaphors and examples really help,
As well as being hands-on,
To get the experience for myself.


9) How organized do you to think of yourself as?
Extremely orderly on the inside,
Especially in terms of time management.
Always planning and trying to think of new things in case I need to adapt to something.



10) How do you judge new ideas? You try to understand the principles behind it to see if they make sense or do you look for information that supports it?
I don't know how to answer this.
If I may, I wish to give a thought process to something that came up recently.

I recently heard that a scientist "found out" (?) that cats see us as the same,
Like we're cats as well, but probably just bigger and clumsier.

Before reading the whole article, I immediately jumped to the behaviors of cats,
When it comes towards people, cats, and other species.
Things like meowing, headbutting, and licking, they do to us and other cats,
But not to any other species, from what I've noticed.
Therefore I can believe in the scientist's statement, based on what I have seen.


11) You find harmony by making sure everyone is doing fine and belonging to a given group or by making sure that you follow what you believe and being yourself?
Like the question before, dealing with thinking cognitive functions,
I know this is about Fe vs Fi, and it's difficult for me to answer.
(As I'm trying not to let my preferences influence me.)

I've always wanted to belong to a group, and it's easy for me to blend in
But like I said before, I find a lot of relationships to be shallow,
So I've never felt very comfortable or truly a part of most groups.

I'm fine being by myself, I do like it when people are accepted by others.
(Like at my daycare, I really focus on kids inviting others to play with them,
And to help everyone understand each other's feelings better,
So there's less conflict and sadness.)


12) Are you the kind that thinks before speaking or do you speak before thinking? Do you prefer one-on-one communication or group discussions?
I like to think before I speak, sometimes taking long pauses in sentences,
Carefully trying to pick my words, I focus a lot on being understood as best I can.

One-on-one communication definitely.


13) Do you jump into action right away or do you like to know where are you jumping before leaping? Does action speaks more than words?
I like to know where I am jumping, however sometimes I think I'm too cautious,
And that maybe leaping into something unknown every once in a while can't hurt.

I think it depends, both are very significant.
Some people are genuine through action,
Others through words.


14) It's Saturday. You're at home, and your favorite show is about to start. Your friends call you for a night out. What will you do?
Depends on who it is asking me, what kind of friends and how close we are.


15) How do you act when you're stressed out?
Very flustered, panicked. Mind racing a million miles a second.
I can literally feel myself breaking out when I'm stressed!


16) What makes you dislike the personalities of some people?
If they're hypocritical and contradict themselves a lot,
People who are dishonest and like to be manipulative.
And rudeness in general, no consideration towards others.


17) Is there anything you really like talking about with other people?
Deep thoughts and feelings, things I experience.
Like how it feels when you hold your hand to someone's chest to feel their heart,
Or how listening to some songs make me feel I'm being carried by a current
In a kind of space where nothing else really exists, and I feel translucent.
Things like that, that I hope others may relate to as well.


18) What kind of things do pay the least attention to in your life?
The days, I easily lose track of things.


19) How do your friends perceive you? What is wrong about their perception? ? What would your friends never say about your personality ?
I have been told plenty of times how "calming" my presence is.
Also get lots of compliments of how sweet I am a lot.

Honestly though, I haven't asked how people see me.
I've always been a little scared of what they might say,
So I think it's just best to not know at all.
These are just comments I get most often.


20) You got a whole day to do whatever you like. What kind of activities do you feel like doing?
Taking things at my own pace, lying around and lazing about for a bit,
Then go out for a fun day on the city, going to shop or the amusement park.
Or maybe taking a quiet ride though the park on a bike, or go in the mountains.

2. Very stereotypical NF values. You're probably an introvert as well since you feel different from others which is a very, very common denominator of INFs.

3. You've had a realization that made you transform into something better, which is the sort of improvement NFs are constantly striving for.
This realization has been about what has meaning and value, clearly F, and looks at everything from an almost cosmic perspective which is exaggerated N.

(also it simply sounds as if you've had a rough time, and I'm glad you see things a bit more clearly now!)

4. You're afraid to not live up to your expectations of yourself, which are probably high, and you subjectively assess your worth rather than being objective (probably it's no big deal if some does your duties a little bit. You can still be a valuable and responsible person). This is introversion and probably with a bit of feeling.

5. The possibilities of the outcome can be interpreted as a simulation process done by Feeling.
Valuing the risk is on the other hand a bit Thinkery. Interesting.

6. A perfectionist.. you gotta work on that. I'm sorry :D
It might bring you suffering throughout life.

Anyway, this is seen both in perceivers and judgers.

7. Here's a strong emotional immersion in the moment which indicates P and F. You see tons of INFPs describing their emotional states of sceneries like this.

9. You're Scheduled which is a Judging facet. On the other hand having an emphasis on how to adapt is what you might expect a perceiver to do, even if he has been "taught" to plan a lot.
I'm looking for whether you're P or J, and it is often said of INFJs that they're more playful on the inside while INFPs are structured there. Nevertheless I think your answer counts as J.

10. I've thought of this too! It sounds weird. My thought was mostly how it didn't make sense and I concluded that it's probably just a catchy title of an article that probably said something slightly different.

11. Wanting to belong to a group would be FJ in my book, while finding relationships shallow is IN.
You don't talk much about "room" for being yourself, which would mean P to me.

12. Introversion.

13. IN... and perhaps with a J in the back if you're very uncomfortable about doing something spontaneous and sensory.

16. Introversion and Feeling.

17. Some might disagree with me here, but I see this immersion in your emotions as an indication of P.

20. Recharging energy as an introvert.

-----

You have a strong inner desire to show how great you can be in a world that barely understands you, and you give some very Fi-like talks about blissful moments. My best guess is that you're an INFP who has a bit of a complex being so different and sensitive and therefore needs perfectionism to balance out your image of herself.

You might of course simply be an INFJ as well. The only P thing I really have on you is immersion, but it isn't exactly canon to make that connection.

Thank you so much for replying, I really appreciate it!! c=

Huh, that's very curious that I would be thought as being an INFP.
My boyfriend of two years is one, enneagram 9w1, but we seem very different.
(Perhaps it could just be that making us so different from each other??)

Like for example, I feel I give off that I'm more serious and closed-off.
Whereas he's like a little puppy towards everyone, he also seems so relaxed.

I'll have to look into more descriptions of INFP,
Thanks so much for responding me and giving me a better idea of these things!

Being an enneagram 1 is much more for common for INFJs than INFPs, I must say. I will still say that purely looking at what you've stated you are more J than P and thus an INFJ. On the other hand you could say that as long as you're a One, you will be a perfectionist which will make you appear highly Jish.

That is however highly speculative and the immersion into feelings as a P is my personal interpretation. It is the most objective to call you an INFJ.

I think you're on the Ni/Se and the Ti/Fe axis, so either xSTP or xNFJ. INFJ seems to be the most suitable for you.
Definitely IN-J, probably F
Thanks for the input, everyone! c=
Now I'm curious as to how I show I'm INFJ . . .
(I just don't want to keep mistyping is all.)

Ah sorry for the misunderstanding, I don't think I'm a Type 1 though~
(Trying to find where that may have come from, very sorry for that!!)
I honestly don't know what my enneagram type may be, I should test it . . .
