    INTP or INTJ?

    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.

    A: I've been ill and mainly confined to my home for the past year or so, but I can notice an improvement so I'm quite positive at the moment.I'm female and 18.

    1. Click on this link:(link removed to post) Look at the random photo for about 30 seconds. Copy and paste it here, and write about your impression of it.


    A: It's a beautiful place. It looks calm and quite. My first thought was that I'd really like to swim there. It made me think of old time-y castles, knights, battles etc.

    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?

    A I'd think: "I hope this is something easy to fix". I'd also ask there was something I could do to help, be it hold something, phone someone etc. maybe suggest a few things, I'd probably make a joke about it.

    3. You somehow make it to the concert. The driver wants to go to the after party 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?

    A: I don't particularly want to go. It's not my kind of thing. If the driver still wanted to go I'd try to find a way to get home myself, or wait in the car with a book.

    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?

    A: Depending on what they said my reactions would be different: If it was about religion I'd probably start a friendly debate; I love religious debates, they're so passionate and fulfilling, no real answers, just theories and ideas. Politics: I'd likely ignore; we have different ideas. If it was something about the LGBT community I'd say exactly what I thought and disagree with them, I'd ask why they thought that and then put my point across in full on debate mode.

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

    A: I'd stand up for the victim (if there was one) and likely humiliate the other person just to teach them a lesson. I think that if you have beliefs you should stand up for them even in a public situation. if you simply stand around and see something happen that harms people then you're just as guilty.

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

    A: Being open minded about other people's values and ideas. I may not agree but I respect that they're different Most of my values can change; most of them already have. They normally change depending on the people I'm around.
    Intelligence and an ability to teach me things are very important. I love people with fresh ideas, the ability to challenge my ideas.

    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?

    A: I don't think it's possible to be totally different from everyone else. I'm very stubborn, very driven, if someone says I'm unable to do something I'm all the more determined to do it. That said I'm not the best at focus, deadlines and sticking to things, I get bored easily.

    B: I wish I actually cared about people and made better connections. I often get people's thoughts wrong. It's all well and good faking it, but I wish I could have a real emotional connection with people.

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

    A: I used to ignore them and go with logic. However my gut feelings tend to be right, so I now pay them a lot of attention. They're pretty random situations.

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

    A: I love reading (learning is always interesting), pretending to be other people (I like being someone totally different, and people actually believing it), swimming, yoga, trampolining, rock climbing (I like the satisfaction of doing those things that are harder and more physical)... sleeping, and debating with people, hearing new theories.

    B: Being around people I don't particularly like but already know me. I just find that exhausting.

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

    A: I try not to say exactly what I think, I also try to appear more caring than I actually am.

    ISTP - The Mechanics

    Let's get the obvious out the way:

    I am picking up Se from your physical hobbies, but also Ne from your love to debate ideas and theories.

    We already know that you are a T. Questions is whether you are more Ti or Te? It may seem like a stretch, but from your response to the "car breaking down" scenario, it seems like you are more Ti as you are analyzing the situation, understanding the details. That response is also suggestive of INTP as this personality type tends to have little desire to lead or follow and values his or her independence highly. However, INTPs are big on problem solving and I would figure that you would be looking into solving the puzzle as INTP's so love to do. Just look at the character Gregory House from the television program House M.D. If you don't know, he is always and only interested in solving the puzzle, not really caring at all for the people involved. He just wants to be right. Classic INTP.

    It definitely sounds like you are an NT by the looks of it. You claim yourself as an introvert already and you already are onto the conclusion of INTP or INTJ.

    Now, both of these personality types may be in the same temperament, but their functions are actually the absolute opposites. INTJ's functions are in the following order from left to right: Ni - Te - Fi - Se. INTP's functions are in the following order from left to right: Ti - Ne - Si - Fe. This will therefore produce two totally different ways of thinking in regards to problem solving. Answer the following questions to understand which functions are yours:

    Ni/Ne - Do you work towards the bigger picture in life (Ni) or more with living in the moment creativity (Ne)?
    Ti/Te - Do you find yourself breaking down ideas to their core principles and categorizing them in your mind (Ti) or demanding and organizing the order in your external world (Te)?
    Fi/Fe - Do you have an inner flame guiding your values (Fi) or are you more led to follow the values set by society (Fe)?
    Si/Se - Do you analyze a situation in its comparison to past experiences (Si) or work with all the details in their rawest form (Se)?

    With what you have described, I am going with INTJ. I see strong use of Ni and Te with your debating, use of Fi in standing up for what "you" believe in, and Se in your physical hobbies.
