    INTP Or possibly ENTP?

    I always typed as INTP in tests online, usually I was widely introverted. But I took it again today and only got a bit more than 50% of introversion.. I used to think that I could lean between INTP and INFP but I think I 've changed this year, I' m much more able to handle people, social situations and now can enjoy them.

    When it comes to the functions, Ti is still the OG. The main one. But I also enjoy discussing with others I'm very much more opened to others people ideas. I'm basically more open. Still aloof but I am more comfortable in social situations, yesterday I was told that I wasn't considered shy, which surprised me. I still see myself as someone shy, less than before. Don't get me wrong I still have big difficulties initiating.

    Am I leaning towards ENTP? The functions are the same but in a different order. Can my type change depending on the situation? I don't really understand the Sensing and Intuitives aspects so it might be a problem for me, that's why I'm asking. It boggles my mind too much, I can't put a final answer to it. I relate to the INTP but also the ENTP.

    I don't even want to consider the possibility of being an ambivert. It's not a valid answer imo.

    Hope you can help me with this! Thanks...

    Your approach seems to be rather unsystematic. Try this:

    Thanks for these, it makes things a little clearer. I wasn't far from what's seem to be right. But I still have doubts concerning E/I.
    I'm sure that I'm NTP. But now I seem to share both extraverted and introverted traits. I seem to become more extraverted with time. It seems very difficult to change types so I don't really understand if I'm shifting towards E or if it was always there but hidden.

    I recommend you take this Test on usage of functions and If you are interested let me know about your results.
    Cognitive Function Test

    Cognitive Function Test
    I took the test and I was typed as INTJ or INFJ which is not true at all because I clearly wouldn't see myself as a Judging type. I got in order : Ni Ti Ne Fi. It really doesn't resonate.

    I also took the Similarminds Cognitive Functions Test (can't post URLs yet)

    Usually when I take this test I get INTP but now I got 'Unclear' ! It drives me nuts and I'm not in the mood of taking other tests for now. The functions I got there are : Ti = Ne > Ni > Si > then Fi

    Maybe I'm answering the questions wrong ? English isn't my first language so maybe I'm biased, I try to answer to these questions while trying to stya true to myself. I know I'm definitely an N, there is no arguing that. I heard INTP and INFJ were quite similar, but I'm not a feeler type nor a judger, I'm far too scatterbrained and not at ease with plannings or deadlines. Honestly I can see myself as INTP or maybe ENTP.

    Look for a Micheal pierce typology in youtube.

    The Keys2Cognition test is the best online test I've found in regards to cognitive functions, although obviously all tests are flawed. As other posters have said it's difficult to type you yet, but if you are convinced Ti is your dominant function then I'd say pay less attention to the introvert/extrovert preferences - when you are close on a preference distinguishing is tough, and more on the cognitive functions, which would make you an INTP. You may just be developing your auxiliary function with age and/or personal growth.

    I'll look into that, thanks

    I think Ne is my dominant function, at least that what it seems. Aren't Ti and Ne quite similar in aspect ? I don't think I ever got typed as ENTP and INTP descriptions fit me more. I'll go for INTP, being more sociable in the last months made me think more about how I could in fact not be that introverted because I leanred to enjoy have interesting conversations with people and hear their ideas. I'm less introverted than I used to be, but I don't think I can consider myself extraverted (anyway, ENTP is not really an extraverted type

    I have no idea on which one is more used between Si and Fe. I think I am more in touch with Fe, I know when I want to "relate" and "connect" wiht others but don't really know when I use Si, maybe when I daydream or think about what could have been in past situations, or maybe when I compare present situations with precedent ones (espacially in relationships and decisions ?).

    Enneagram test gave me 5w4 and that's the INTP thing i think.
