    Need help w/ typing!

    Hi everyone--was about to type a para of myself, but honestly was too lazy to do that so I answered a questionnaire that the lovely @Spades made:

    0. Is there anything that may affect the way you answer the questions? For example, a stressful time, mental illness, medications, special life circumstances? Other useful information includes sex, age, and current state of mind.

    I'm currently a 17 year old female, heavily influenced by the city life--the city never stops for anyone, and that's why I love it.

    1. Click on this link: Flickr: Explore! Look at the random photo for about 30 seconds. Copy and paste it here, and write about your impression of it.

    flickr.com/photos/lightpalette/35287709085/in/explore-2017-06-13

    I love all the warm colors, and how there's a mixture of both sharp and curved lines. It's grand without being too in your face imo

    2. You are with a group of people in a car, heading to a different town to see your favourite band/artist/musician. Suddenly, the car breaks down for an unknown reason in the middle of nowhere. What are your initial thoughts? What are your outward reactions?

    Probably curse the house down. Or the car down (even though it's already down). Oh--and make sure no one is dead.

    3. You somehow make it to the concert. The driver wants to go to the afterparty that was announced (and assure you they won't drink so they can drive back later). How do you feel about this party? What do you do?

    Why not? I'll go lol

    4. On the drive back, your friends are talking. A friend makes a claim that clashes with your current beliefs. What is your inward reaction? What do you outwardly say?

    I'll ask him/her why he/she thinks so--I usually answer with "Why?" before saying anything. After that, I'll want to say exactly what I believe because I give no shits lol (but I kinda do, I contradict myself constantly)
    But usually I can pick up on the overall vibe and previous knowledge concerning whom I'm talking to, to lower my level of intensity--if needed when talking about my own perspective

    5. What would you do if you actually saw/experienced something that clashes with your previous beliefs, experiences, and habits?

    I would welcome it; just because something's the norm, doesn't mean it's necessarily right or wrong. I like looking at all sides, and I see myself in the grey zones.

    6. What are some of your most important values? How did you come about determining them? How can they change?

    Being real and a loyal bitch is so important to me. I sometimes have to be less myself in order for me to appear more approachable. People flock to me anyways, but I can be crass.

    7. a) What about your personality most distinguishes you from everyone else? b) If you could change one thing about you personality, what would it be? Why?

    I'm definitely one of the most open minded and yet the most opinionated. I'm also able to engage people very well, and I can make friends super easily (people have called me smooth and charming) but maintaining them is another thing lol

    If I could change my personality, it would definitely be less lazy. I am literally the laziest person ever (ex. homework and studying)-- I just don't do things I don't like. It's not like I'm not dumb, I just think learning about polar graphs is useless

    8. How do you treat hunches or gut feelings? In what situations are they most often triggered?

    Almost always, I trust my gut feelings--especially with people. I can always tell if someone is shady or not; for example, I met one of my mom's "friends" for the first time and I absolutely loathed her when I saw her. I just didn't like her vibe. Next thing you know a few months later, she got caught stealing money from her employees and ran away with the bank. When it comes to bad friends, I can always tell who is a fake friend before my other friends can. They always think I'm crazy/jealous in the beginning, but end up regretting their decision to not listen to me. I get triggered when it comes to people who have betrayed me. Or insulted me without any good reason.

    9. a) What activities energize you most? b) What activities drain you most? Why?

    I love talking with people--but more so debating. In debate, I am in the element and in the zone. All eyes are on me, and I talk the most clearly and concisely--talking with a purpose really turns me on. My normal spaciness goes away, and I feel empowered. But I can't be the only one debating with a purpose, I need people on the same level as I am or it'll end up like talking to a wall and my energy ends up being wasted. Wow that sounded so arrogant lol

    10. What do you repress about your outward behavior or internal thought process when around others? Why?

    I want people to like me. I say I don't care, but I think I care too much. I have a tough time controlling my tone of voice--the things I say can come off as not funny-insulting, but just insulting (even though I had 0 intention to hurt anyone). In order for me to maintain the relationships I want to maintain, I had to bite back words.

    Personally I think I am a ENXP, but all the threads/posts explaining how to type yourself are all long af so I don't bother lol

    Is it possible to type accurately at this age?

    1. Click on this link: Flickr: Explore! Look at the random photo for about 30 seconds. Copy and paste it here, and write about your impression of it.

    flickr.com/photos/lightpalette/35287709085/in/explore-2017-06-13

    I love all the warm colors, and how there's a mixture of both sharp and curved lines. It's grand without being too in your face imo

    There's no attention to detail here whatsoever, like I'd expect from anyone with Se anywhere near their cognitive function stack.
    Whatever the opposite of Se is.
    There's also no indication of any deeper meaning etc so I can't suggest Ni.
    Si-Ne then? Because of a complete lack of Se-Ni? Lol.

    EDIT: I realise that sounds ridiculous as Si is usually associated with attention to detail, but to me, seeing something like this picture would evoke more thought and.. words.. out of someone with Se.

    I'm seeing it as if an Se user would have more to say, they'd be more interested, fascinated.. not literally 'attention to detail' as in reading a contract.


    2. You are with a group of people in a car, heading to a different town to see your favourite band/artist/musician. Suddenly, the car breaks down for an unknown reason in the middle of nowhere. What are your initial thoughts? What are your outward reactions?

    Probably curse the house down. Or the car down (even though it's already down). Oh--and make sure no one is dead.

    Fi-Te but only because for some reason, I'm imagining you thinking to yourself "how could this happen to me?" or "why does this happen to me". Checking on peoples health has occurred to you after cursing the house down, so eh, maybe Fe-Ti but it's underdeveloped, as are basically all of your functions at your age, I'd have to go Fi-Te from your response.

    3. You somehow make it to the concert. The driver wants to go to the afterparty that was announced (and assure you they won't drink so they can drive back later). How do you feel about this party? What do you do?

    Why not? I'll go lol

    Because you're only 17 and won't be allowed in?.. Se-Ni in any case, imo.. might be better if we knew *why*
    you would go. I'm just saying Se because I'm associating wanting to go with being up for new experiences etc, but I mean that could be Ne-Si too.


    4. On the drive back, your friends are talking. A friend makes a claim that clashes with your current beliefs. What is your inward reaction? What do you outwardly say?

    I'll ask him/her why he/she thinks so--I usually answer with "Why?" before saying anything. After that, I'll want to say exactly what I believe because I give no shits lol (but I kinda do, I contradict myself constantly)
    But usually I can pick up on the overall vibe and previous knowledge concerning whom I'm talking to, to lower my level of intensity--if needed when talking about my own perspective

    Fi-Te.. because you're curious as to why someone thinks the way they do, and you would give them a chance to respond.
    Then you would beat them down with some blunt Te because you "give no shits", I imagine in a way that is essentially a copy-paste from the source of the information you would be using.


    5. What would you do if you actually saw/experienced something that clashes with your previous beliefs, experiences, and habits?

    I would welcome it; just because something's the norm, doesn't mean it's necessarily right or wrong. I like looking at all sides, and I see myself in the grey zones.

    Healthy Ne-Si. Open-minded. This answer contradicts your last answer to some degree.

    6. What are some of your most important values? How did you come about determining them? How can they change?

    Being real and a loyal bitch is so important to me. I sometimes have to be less myself in order for me to appear more approachable. People flock to me anyways, but I can be crass.

    Typical Fi-Te. Want to be yourself. Actually not being yourself sometimes, to appear more approachable, tells me Fi is most likely not your dominant function, but it's definitely up there.

    7. a) What about your personality most distinguishes you from everyone else? b) If you could change one thing about you personality, what would it be? Why?

    I'm definitely one of the most open minded and yet the most opinionated. I'm also able to engage people very well, and I can make friends super easily (people have called me smooth and charming) but maintaining them is another thing lol

    Ne-Si and Fi-Te all over the shop here.
    Open minded (Ne) yet opinionated (Fi-Te), good with people, make friends easily.. probably can't maintain them because you're all over the shop. I'd put Ne as your dominant function.


    If I could change my personality, it would definitely be less lazy. I am literally the laziest person ever (ex. homework and studying)-- I just don't do things I don't like. It's not like I'm not dumb, I just think learning about polar graphs is useless

    Again, Fi-Te. You don't like doing things you don't like.
    Lack of Te with regards to wanting to keep on top of homework, studying etc.. which are, as I understand it, external measuring devices.


    8. How do you treat hunches or gut feelings? In what situations are they most often triggered?

    Almost always, I trust my gut feelings--especially with people. I can always tell if someone is shady or not; for example, I met one of my mom's "friends" for the first time and I absolutely loathed her when I saw her. I just didn't like her vibe. Next thing you know a few months later, she got caught stealing money from her employees and ran away with the bank. When it comes to bad friends, I can always tell who is a fake friend before my other friends can. They always think I'm crazy/jealous in the beginning, but end up regretting their decision to not listen to me. I get triggered when it comes to people who have betrayed me. Or insulted me without any good reason.

    Difficult to tell, imo. All types can have these kind of hunches about people, imo.
    I've read it's typical of Ni users to feel this way, but I've read a lot about INFPs, and apparently Fi is great at seeing through people as well. It just works in a different way.
    Considering how I read your other responses, I'd put this on the Fi-Te scale.
    I'm not saying you're an INFP. Just trying to explain how Fi, to me, can be very judgmental in this fashion - you're seeing something that doesn't feel right to you.. and that makes you massively iffy on it.

    Also Fi has a way of sniffing out when people aren't being authentic - so likely you're sensing something like this right off the bat, something doesn't feel true/authentic about some people.


    9. a) What activities energize you most? b) What activities drain you most? Why?

    I love talking with people--but more so debating. In debate, I am in the element and in the zone. All eyes are on me, and I talk the most clearly and concisely--talking with a purpose really turns me on. My normal spaciness goes away, and I feel empowered. But I can't be the only one debating with a purpose, I need people on the same level as I am or it'll end up like talking to a wall and my energy ends up being wasted. Wow that sounded so arrogant lol

    Wouldn't have a clue. Clearly extraverted.

    10. What do you repress about your outward behavior or internal thought process when around others? Why?

    I want people to like me. I say I don't care, but I think I care too much. I have a tough time controlling my tone of voice--the things I say can come off as not funny-insulting, but just insulting (even though I had 0 intention to hurt anyone). In order for me to maintain the relationships I want to maintain, I had to bite back words.

    Could be Fe but nothing else in any of these responses really indicates Fe to me.. even this response, really, you want people to like you. You hold back your words and try to maintain relationships because you want them, you need them, it's very much about you.
    I still see Fi-Te here.


    Personally I think I am a ENXP, but all the threads/posts explaining how to type yourself are all long af so I don't bother lol

    I believe you're an ENFP, but tbh it is difficult to tell because you're only 17. Your tertiary function (Te) hasn't even begun to develop IIRC.. I think it develops between 20-30.. so maybe in a few years you'll start to feel differently about getting things done, like studies etc if you decide to keep studying etc etc.

    Your Fi is way strong but you're simply too extraverted for it to be your dominant function, especially considering you're only 17 - a dominant Fi at your age, would, according to my readings of INFPs, be very shy and reserved, you come across nowhere near that.

    Also your Ne is solid, not many responses that indicate Ne, but the ones that do, to me, tell me it's likely your dominant function, which leaves Fi as your auxiliary - ENFP, in my opinion.

    Typical Se response. Focus on physical aspects such as lines and colours. No concepts.

    2. You are with a group of people in a car, heading to a different town to see your favourite band/artist/musician. Suddenly, the car breaks down for an unknown reason in the middle of nowhere. What are your initial thoughts? What are your outward reactions?

    Probably curse the house down. Or the car down (even though it's already down). Oh--and make sure no one is dead.

    But usually I can pick up on the overall vibe and previous knowledge concerning whom I'm talking to, to lower my level of intensity--if needed when talking about my own perspective
    It's really difficult to tell, but I think this is more Fi-Te/Te-Fi rather than than Ti-Fe/Fe-Ti. There's not really any concern with external value.

    5. What would you do if you actually saw/experienced something that clashes with your previous beliefs, experiences, and habits?

    I would welcome it; just because something's the norm, doesn't mean it's necessarily right or wrong. I like looking at all sides, and I see myself in the grey zones.
    The way you refer to your beliefs as "the norm" and then proceed to use value-focused words such as "right" and "wrong" make me lean Fe. Objective, external value judgment.

    6. What are some of your most important values? How did you come about determining them? How can they change?

    Being real and a loyal bitch is so important to me. I sometimes have to be less myself in order for me to appear more approachable. People flock to me anyways, but I can be crass.
    Probably low Fe. I see this a lot with TPs in particular. They take a lot of pride in "keeping it real." I think it's due to Fe being devalued / mistrusted.

    7. a) What about your personality most distinguishes you from everyone else? b) If you could change one thing about you personality, what would it be? Why?

    I'm definitely one of the most open minded and yet the most opinionated. I'm also able to engage people very well, and I can make friends super easily (people have called me smooth and charming) but maintaining them is another thing lol

    Pe. Maybe Fe.

    8. How do you treat hunches or gut feelings? In what situations are they most often triggered?

    Almost always, I trust my gut feelings--especially with people. I can always tell if someone is shady or not; for example, I met one of my mom's "friends" for the first time and I absolutely loathed her when I saw her. I just didn't like her vibe.

They always think I'm crazy/jealous in the beginning, but end up regretting their decision to not listen to me. I get triggered when it comes to people who have betrayed me. Or insulted me without any good reason.
    Ne types tend to say, "It could go this way, or this way, or that way." This sounds very Ni.

    9. a) What activities energize you most? b) What activities drain you most? Why?

    I love talking with people--but more so debating. In debate, I am in the element and in the zone. All eyes are on me, and I talk the most clearly and concisely--talking with a purpose really turns me on. My normal spaciness goes away, and I feel empowered. But I can't be the only one debating with a purpose, I need people on the same level as I am or it'll end up like talking to a wall and my energy ends up being wasted. Wow that sounded so arrogant lol
    You come across very much as a Beta type (STP or NFJ). I suspect STP; don't believe you're high Fe - it seems devalued by Ti. Some people attribute debating with Ne, but I don't believe you are Ne. You don't play Devil's advocate but rather enjoy debating with a purpose - your exact words. Very Beta.

    10. What do you repress about your outward behavior or internal thought process when around others? Why?

    I want people to like me. Fe. I say I don't care, but I think I care too much. Low Fe. I have a tough time controlling my tone of voice--the things I say can come off as not funny-insulting, but just insulting (even though I had 0 intention to hurt anyone). In order for me to maintain the relationships I want to maintain, I had to bite back words.

    This is interesting. Se sees a bunch of personality types and cognitive functions and, if the Se user fails to understand the model, all the Se sees a white noise, basically. You seem to be doing this. An Si type, regardless of the position of the Si, is going to reduce their personality to an impression or type and figure out which types fits with their impression of themselves best.
    You're an XSTP. Most likely an ESTP.
