I've been researching about MBTI, Enneagram, Socionics, graphology, astrology and other related topics since I was a teenager, as a means to better understand myself and other people.
Regarding MBTI, I came to the conclusion a few years ago (between the last years of high school and my first years in university - I go to law school) that I was an ISFP, due to my intense procrastination, as well as my interest in pretty things (Se) and in better understanding the world (Ni). But back then, some people already thought that I was an INFJ instead, due to my interest - and, frankly, obsession - in MBTI and evaluating other people's types. I thought they were wrong, though, because my gut told me that the ISFP definition fit me better. Also, because I hated studying literature in school, mostly because I didn't understand a single thing the teachers were discussing most of the time. [I did enjoy reading some texts, though, such as this one by Fernando Pessoa]. Finally, because I didn't feel that I had a clear mission to help other people - which is frequently said about INFJs.
Now I'm a young adult, and many things have changed in my life ever since. I'm finishing law school, I have been in a couple internships (in court rooms and legal practices) and have made more friends. I'm (finally) in a relationship (which takes a lot of work) and am studying about Buddhism, more specifically the Zen branch, because I felt I needed to embark on a spiritual journey to deal with some of my existential issues, and because Buddhist principles make a lot of sense to me, providing a reasonable moral framework to guide me. I also did therapy for a few months, due to some terrible anxiety crises, which have thankfully subsided since I started (ocasionally) meditating and taking antidepressants. Some people, to my surprise, have also complimented my writing style (in native Portuguese), my organization skills - even though I still feel like I make too much of a mess and my thoughts don't make sense - and said that I seem very serious on the outside, which could help me to be a judge. Actually, most people who meet me in the field say that I look like a judge. Not bad for an ISFP, I suppose.
But, recently, I was reflecting on what would be my boyfriend's MBTI type, when, again, the question of what is my own MBTI type felt like it was relevant again. Especially because, when I established that I was an ISFP, my life was pretty different than it is now, and, considering my life trajectory, it doesn't seem to fit the ISFP profile any longer.
To kill my curiosity, I watched a few videos about INFJs and joined Facebook groups to understand more about the people in this type, and thought I could maybe fit the description. But I'm still doubtful. I also consider the possibility of being an ISFJ or INFP, though I don't know if Si could be one of my 3 first cognitive functions, since my memory is really bad.
In short, I would very much appreciate the input of people here in PerC.
I decided to answer one of the questionnaires from the "sticky" threads, hoping it'll facilitate this process. I haven't finished yet, but, when I do, I'll post my answers in this thread.
If you read everything until now, you have my sincere thanks. Also, thanks in advance for any input.
