    Could I be an ENTP? If not, which NP am I?

    1. Age, sex. Is there anything going on in your life that may affect your result?

    Female, 18. I think mentally I'm doing alright. I have dealt with a lot of anxiety/depression, but it’s gotten better

    2. Please describe yourself as a person if you were to introduce yourself to someone else like in a cover letter. What kind of person are you and why?

    I'd say I'm a pretty mellow person. I'm accepting, forgiving, try to compromise and rarely get angry. I'm very curious-I like reading about different countries, science, health, history, etc. I also like to pick people's brains-ask them why they think a certain way, ask their opinions, challenge them, etc. Towards my friends I'd say I'm generous(I like to surprise them!) and loyal. I'm notoriously adventurous, but it's mostly eating foreign/spicy foods and riding thrill rides. I try to keep an "I'll try anything once" attitude, and that's mostly true. I’d say I’m pretty creative-mostly with my cooking(I like foreign ingredients!), my fashion sense and random crafts. I’m a jokester as well(I like puns :P). I'd say my flaws are that I am shy, indecisive, can be too trusting of others, and get too lost in my daydreams.

    3. What kind of person would you LIKE to be? Why? What kind of person would you NOT want to be? Why?

    I wish I was more organized. I’m all ambitious and perfectionistic and yet I keep procrastinating and not organizing things. I wish I was more decisive, because while it keeps my options open it also hinders socialization and projects(not knowing what to say, draw, write, etc.). It makes me regret missed opportunity too. I'm not too fond of the spotlight but I kinda want be famous in a YouTuber sort of way.

    I don’t want to be someone ambitionless. I don’t want to be someone close-minded and judgemental-those qualities annoy me a lot. What else annoys me is ungratefulness. All the work people do for you! I don't want to be unappreciative.


    4. Do you think there are any differences to how you described yourself and how people actually perceive you? How do you think others would describe you? If there are any discrepancies between these two that are you are aware of; do you know why exactly that is?

    People have described me as shy, trusting, creative, modest, smart, nerdy, empathetic, adventurous, seeing the best in others-a bunch. All those fit fine. They don’t outright say it, but I think people would say I’m too..starry-eyed? I’m all full of creative ideas and I get knocked down for them lacking details or other people not simply liking them cause they’re too...new. Hey, I like the unique, the foreign, the uncanny. They also treat me like I'm naive? "Good job!"(over and over again), "You treat her like a dog!"(guy to another guy in a group project). Yeah, no.


    5. What in life do you find to be of importance? Why? If you are unsure you can always take the Value Test and post the results here. Do note that it helps if you narrow it down to 20 or ideally 10 values as suggested at stage 2.

    Loyalty, empathy, creativity, curiosity, variety, being accepting of differences, knowledge, understanding, generosity, fairness(These are my own, not from the test). Why? With creativity, I’ve just wanted to be different and stand out. And creativity leads to variety. I think loyalty comes from past experience-I’m often peoples' 3rd wheel. And isn’t it annoying when people comment on your Facebook how they love you and miss you but don’t actually talk to you? Generosity and fairness come from me wanting to make sure people are happy. Knowledge is power.

    6. How do you react to new situations in your life? Can you describe an event in your life where you were in an unknown situation? How did you deal with it?

    I get nervous because I’m scared of losing what I once had. But at the end of the day, I’m like, “What the hey!”. I've been in a lot of new experiences the past few 5 years-getting a stepmom, going to college. I've gotten sad about leaving my small towns, and I can't help but think things like "Oh, probably won't make friends at college either." But I try to greet things with curiosity. Thoughts like what my stepmom is interested in or what clubs my college will have.

    7. Please describe yourself when you are in a stressful situation. How do you act and why? Real life experiences are welcome.


    I get very tense and withdrawn. It often turns into anxiety and so I’ll get fidgety and breathe heavily. I'll turn to hot drinks, food, music and friends(online). My mind races and turns to unrelated but also stressful thoughts. I turn into a mixture of being tired yet active(like pacing).

    8. Please describe yourself when you are in an enjoyable situation. How do you act and why? Real life experiences are welcome.

    Hung out with a couple friends last weekend. Went shopping, ate at Denny’s and McDonald’s. I got pretty bouncy and kinda smiled like an idiot. I imagined all the fun things we could do in the future. I opened up more.


    9. Describe your relationship to socialization. How do you perceive one-on-one interaction? How do you perceive group interaction?


    Welp, I'm not very good at making friends. Sometimes I just don't know how to strike up conversation. Small talk makes me cringe most of the time. But I really like talking about my interests and ideas. And for some reason, I just have trouble bonding with people even if we have a bunch in common. So yeah, it sucks. Most people here at college are...flaky. I want to have a tight-knit little group of friends. I want to be able to game with them, ask them questions, get coffee with them, watch movies with them. I prefer one on one interaction to group interaction-more depth.


    10. Describe your relationship to society. What are the elements of it you hold important or unimportant (e.g. social norms, values, customs, traditions)? How do you see people as a whole?


    I don't care too much about tradition. If it doesn’t make things better or hurts others, no reason to make it mandatory. Of course, eating pie on Thanksgiving is different than being homophobic. Pie is a tasty treat that I look forward to each Thanksgiving. Some traditions aren’t all that bad but just not necessary. For example, it’s still widely accepted that men are the ones who should organize dates. That’s sweet of them, but why can’t a woman actually show her man some love? I think people overall are becoming nicer and more accepting, and yet more split with increasing wage gaps and political tension.


    11. What is your relationship with authority?

    I get along with most authority figures, but I'm not opposed to breaking the rules if they don't hurt anyone. It can definitely go to ones' head. It's annoying when authority deters my creative mojo.

    12. Describe your relationship to order and chaos. What do order and chaos mean to you? How do they manifest in your daily life?

    Order and chaos is more like peace vs chaos to me, or organization vs disorganization. It’s happy daydreams versus random deep thoughts that get disturbing. It's inspiration and flowing thoughts vs. procrastination. It's planning things that almost never happen because I'm so flexible(not always neccesarily bad). Messes make my head hurt, but other than that, yeah, I'm a bit chaotic.



    13. What is it that you fear in life? Why? How does this fear manifest to you both in how you think and how you act?

    I fear missing out on opportunity, which makes me indecisive. I fear failure. I’m in school, and I just want to be financially stable with a cozy house when I’m older. Therefore, I don’t want bad grades. Similarly, I fear incompetency. I fear loneliness. Sure, I like my alone time, but loneliness has caused me depression. Not too specific, but I get anxiety from bad things that happened in the past. Phobia wise, I fear fire. A mere knock of a candle can cause widespread destruction. Another phobia is beepy/boomy noises since they remind me of alarms and things blowing up.

    14. What is it that you desire in life? What do you strive to achieve? Why? Where do you think these drives and desires stem from or are inspired by?

    I want steady relationships. I want a life of variety-being able to visit new places, do different things with people, eat exotic foods. I don't want to be too materialistic when I’m older for those reasons. I would love a good video game system, a little library and some cool cooking gadgets, but I also don’t want to spend money on stuff I won’t use when I can get a dog or go on a vacation. I would like to master a skill, ideally becoming fluent in a language because I’m interested in different cultures, or expanding on my cooking or drawing. My top dream jobs would be:
    -A graphic designer, because I get to express myself, and it's fascinating seeing how everyday things like stickers and T-shirts are made
    -A doctor of some sort, because I like the mystery of putting together the symptoms and coming up with a diagnosis
    -A chef, because I like what food represents. It's the basis of cultures(and I'm a geography nerd) and it's art on a plate. And I just like experimenting, seeing what ingredients work together


    15. a) What activities energize you most? b) What activities drain you most? Why?
    Energizes: Video games(whole new world!), spending time with friends, family, and animals, bingewatching favorite series and movies, cooking, looking at art, reading, shopping, road trips, dancing to music(helps me think!), and playing board games(mental challenge, friendly competition)

    Drains: Being around strangers/large groups of people, repetitive work, small talk, sports

    16. Why do you want to know your type? What type do you think you are? Why this/these type(s)? Is there a type that appeals to you, to your self-perception, that you would like to be? Why? If you know your enneagram, please post this here. If you have done any online function tests such as the Keys2Cognition, it helps if you post these results here as well.

    Enneagram 7w6/794. I’m pretty certain I'm an NP type, since I'm so curious, open-minded, dreamy and focused on the future. The Ne is what typers notice in me too. I've tested and been typed by others as INFP, ENTP, and ENFP. Of course, in the title I'm considering ENTP because I think I use more Fe, but the difference between Fe and Fi is still a little confusing to me because of some overlaps(empathy, seeing the good in others). I usually take other people’s feelings into account more while making decisions more than mine though. Also, I don’t feel as value obsessed as NFPs? Could be a stereotype though. I have values and care about them, but I’m mostly open to contradictory beliefs unless I see someone getting hurt. Anyway, I still believe INFP and ENFP are very plausible, and I am very reflective of my own thoughts. Another confusing thing is extroversion vs introversion. I’ve learned that it’s not as clear cut as outgoing vs shy, and that it also has to do with energy and your environment. When I get home from hanging with friends, I’m usually not drained, rather energized and thinking about the next time we can hang out. But I’m very shy around strangers and a generally quiet person. I do have things that get me going though. Like I’ll be working in a group and mostly be quiet, but then they’ll bring something up like a favorite show and I’ll want to talk all about it. Also since my Ne is so high, it could very well be dominant. But I'll say a lot of this is from an insightful answer on Typology. Why do I want to know? It’s fascinating getting to know myself and finding like-minded people! I'm pretty interested in psychology too.



    17). Finally, is there something else you find to be of importance you want to add about yourself you think might be of relevance when helping to type you?

    Hmm. Other fun facts would be that I’m clumsy and that while I have a notoriously good long term memory(I can remember most restaurant orders from the last few years for example), my short term memory is not that great. I’d say I’m good at cooking, learning languages, board games(especially word games!), most artsy things and bad at sports and knitting.

    There you go! Hopefully I didn't ramble too much. Ask more questions if you want!

    Could you tell me about a friendship that did not go well for you?

    I don’t want to be someone ambitionless. I don’t want to be someone close-minded and judgemental-those qualities annoy me a lot. What else annoys me is ungratefulness. All the work people do for you! I don't want to be unappreciative.
    I think you have an "F" in your personality on the spot of the T. If you were a "T", it is much less likely you'd care about "people being unappreciative or judgmental because you'd be analyzing why they're that way, rather than feeling so strong about them being in a certain way. A "T" can't feel strongly about other's opinions or ways of living/being because they'll view them from numerous angles,in a sort of inhumane way. I think you could be INF or ENF perhaps, more than likely ENF,having being reliant on people's opinions and how much they care about you.

    Order and chaos is more like peace vs chaos to me, or organization vs disorganization. It’s happy daydreams versus random deep thoughts that get disturbing. It's inspiration and flowing thoughts vs. procrastination. It's planning things that almost never happen because I'm so flexible(not always neccesarily bad). Messes make my head hurt, but other than that, yeah, I'm a bit chaotic.
    The mind of a P is very organised but their physical world is a chaos. On another hand J is very organised visibly, e.g. house is in order, work is structured, but their mind is a bit chaotic,hence they need notes, they need to write down their shopping list, etc... So you decide on the last letter.

    I'd give you an ENFJ based on what you described.

    Interesting question! This one is technically a relationship turned friendship. I only dated this dude because he asked me out probably 7 times. After we broke up(it was long distance), I wanted to stay his friend. That's how all of my relationships have been. He was not a good conversationalist. Accused me of blabbering when his main vocabulary consisted of "Oh?", ":p" and "Lol". He also used me to basically argue with people, and I wasn't too keen on that. Actually, being used is a common flaw in my relationships/friendships. If it's not for arguing, it's for babysitting. He had a short fuse, which didn't mesh well with me since I'm not an angry person, and I didn't really know how to react(but now I do). A stubborn guy(I think the amount of times he asked me out sums that up) and a pervy guy.

    I was looking more for of a relationship that ended poorly, or that you were mad at them in the end. Thanks anyway, it did help.
    _____

    Anyway, I've typed you as ENTP, with only ~60% confidence. I tried to use this method (link) to type you, but I'm still very inexperienced with using this method.

    Marked you as [OO/ExxP calm balance between control and chaos]
    On example of this is your personal needs vs your friendships, another is
    "Order and chaos is more like peace vs chaos to me, or organization vs disorganization."
    If you're an ExxP, it's expected that you hate being controlled.
    "It's annoying when authority deters my creative mojo."
    "He also used me to basically argue with people, and I wasn't too keen on that."


    [NT Nerdy reasons in the abstract world]
    "I’m all full of creative ideas and I get knocked down for them lacking details or other people not simply liking them cause they’re too...new. Hey, I like the unique, the foreign, the uncanny."
    "I think people overall are becoming nicer and more accepting, and yet more split with increasing wage gaps and political tension. "
    " I also like to pick people's brains-ask them why they think a certain way, ask their opinions, challenge them, etc. "
    "I want steady relationships. I want a life of variety-being able to visit new places, do different things with people, eat exotic foods."

    [Fe]
    "Generosity and fairness come from me wanting to make sure people are happy."
    [Ti]
    "I get along with most authority figures, but I'm not opposed to breaking the rules if they don't hurt anyone."
    "A doctor of some sort, because I like the mystery of putting together the symptoms and coming up with a diagnosis
    A chef, because I like what food represents. It's the basis of cultures(and I'm a geography nerd) and it's art on a plate. And I just like experimenting, seeing what ingredients work together"
    [-Si]
    "I wish I was more organized. I’m all ambitious and perfectionistic and yet I keep procrastinating and not organizing things. "
    [Ne]
    "I try to keep an 'I'll try anything once' attitude, and that's mostly true. I’d say I’m pretty creative-mostly with my cooking(I like foreign ingredients!), my fashion sense and random crafts." Many other examples, besides you're pretty confident on this one yourself.

    ________

    I admit that the examples for Fe are fewer because I was unable to eliminate bias from my mind. My mind is most always, "Do we really connect? Do we really connect?" My relationships with people with Fe are just different. I have a close friend in an ESFJ. I tell him nearly everything about me, but he does not feel uncomfortable when I do. I think he would cry for me, but maybe not so much with me. Tangent. I found it a bit hard to step into your shoes; your writing style seems not so Fi either. Cheerio~
