    Alrighty then. So why again can't you be an INFP?

I don't think that lacking Ni has anything to do with a lack of follow through on their part. Plenty of types with lower Ni lack follow through. Te tends make one particularly prone to following goals through to completion. Combining that with Ni creates a long term vision that an INTJ will strive to achieve. An ISTJ will have long term goals that are probably more 'simplistic', less dreamy and less grand. (IE: I want to get married at X age, have a nice house by X age, and be making X amount of money.)

    But I'm also not sure what talking about an Si dom has to do with typing you, unless you're starting to question your status as an N.
    from my experience most Ni users are not grand visionaries [stereotype] and Si users aren't long term planners. Ni users will probably be more likely the ones to say "I want to get married at X age, have a nice house by X age, and be making X amount of money" using long intuition and work according to that goal. Si users are more short term planners, one step at a time. Their unconscious Ne keeps them open-ended. this is from my experience though.

    I don't know. Do you see me as an INFP?
    The way I see it, INFPs are much more likely to jump on an opportunity to fight for a cause that fulfills their convictions.
    While I have my convictions, I usually hold off my judgement until I see a possibility for changes to be maintainable and working in the long run.
    I would never cheer for anything that isn't maintanable and just a quick "fix".
    On the other hand I tend to zero in on causes that fulfill my instincts and convictions on a personal level. This is not a sudden idea that just pops out of my head but a deep conviction that needs to stay with me. I have to feel like it's inevitable otherwise I don't care.

    Otherwise I find INFPs "cute" and tend to side with them. Like Andrew Garfield is INFP and he's one of my favourite actors, stars in two of my favourite movies (The Social Network, Silence).

    I'm married to an ISTJ.. he's definitely not an INTJ. He did exactly what I described.
    Whereas, I know an INTJ who determined that he wanted to be in the best shape of his life by the time he was 50. (He was proclaiming this while in his 40s) And he made it happen. Not saying that's a particularly grand goal, but it is a rather inspecific one.

    Well.. warning, these are half baked thoughts and I hate sharing half baked thoughts. Regardless...
    I have moments where I go "Ok, INTJ makes sense". But then you do something odd like decide to update an article I sent you rather than apply it to yourself almost like you completely missed the point of me sending it to you to begin with. Initially struck me as scattered brain Ne. You also constantly reference characters you like as examples. Not just characters in general but characters you like specifically. I partially wonder if that's not tied somehow to NF idealism.
    You're also somewhat emulating the stereotypical Te arrogance, bluntness, and attitude but saying that means you're a Te dom/aux is like saying all Fi doms are cute, sweet, and nice. I'm trying to figure out if you're displaying a typical T attitude or a more anti-emotion that a colder F user might display.
    I also was reading some of your other posts, and it kinda looks like to me that you picked up the use of the word 'resonates' from another user. Not sure exactly what that indicates but that sort of emulation doesn't strike me as an NTJ thing to do.
    And then I find it interesting that an Ni dom jumped in here and tried to call you an ISTJ.. which clearly indicates that person doesn't think you're a Ni like him.

    Have you looked specifically into Ne vs Ni?

    Yes. Like a billion times. :) Sorry, but I've been through that.
    I don't know about the word resonate and what it indicates but it may help if I tell you that I'm not a native English speaker. So me picking up words is natural in fact it is one of the causes I use an English language forum instead of my native language.
    If you think INFP makes sense I'm okay with that.

    BTW. I applied the article to me. But brief discriptions like these won't bring me closer to the truth, I think. So I found it better to update something I know.

    Ok that makes sense then. lol.
    I'm unsure. Only things I know is that you have Fi-Te or Te-Fi.

    so you're saying Ni sets unspecific goals? and that's the difference from Si users?

    Perhaps. Ni goals might be more abstract. Si goals will probably be security and stability driven and thus focused on fulfilling physical needs. Hence, making so much money and having a house by a certain age. But I'm specifically referring to an Si-Te when I'm talking. I would imagine an Si-Fe would be different. An ISFJ I know in real life does tend lack follow through which is why earlier I tied long term goal completion back to the Te function and not Si vs Ni.

    Si goals circle around comfort and basic needs.
    Ni goals ..well not so subtle.
