    Here is why I think you are a sensor. Of course it's going to be kinda stereotypy because I don't have a lot of information about you and don't really know what's happening in your mind. But my opinion that you're an ISTJ isn't very strong anyways.

    Honestly, most intuitives would probably be bored with anatomy. It's a bunch of memorization about very concrete things, it doesn't present many ideas. We might work at it to achieve something else, but we are unlikely to name it as a goal.
    3) Think about a time where you felt like you were at your finest. Tell us what made you feel that way.
    I would say when I had a biology exam. I memorized an odd way that I made up to remember blood flow through the heart and its chambers. I got a 100% on the exam, 50 out of 50 points. It was me when I was 15 though.
    More evidence that you really value memorization (and are good at it). Anatomy could just be something that is on your mind because you are taking or recently took classes in it, but this test happened a while ago, right?
    I weigh pros and cons and I feel fine with it, but if it is for buying something, I will research for a few months, even for the simplest thing like a comb to make sure I am buying something worth my money.
    Careful with money and particular about your material things. Introverted sensing kind of thing. [quote] [quote] 7) Describe us a time where you had a lot of fun. How is your memory of it?
    One time was, unfortunately, in a video game. We made a huge comeback on a map called Temple of Anubis in Blizzard's "Overwatch." It was shocking, fun and made everyone glad neither team was steamrolled.
    When I first read this, what stood out to me is that you didn't really explain what made it fun. Looking at it again, you give us the map name, an irrelevant detail (focus on details being a Sensing thing).

    What popped into my head was that whatever made this experience fun is sort of "locked" inside you, something you maybe can't quite explain because it was rather visceral and subjective. And that's Si. But I don't take this for granted as true.
    I memorize or theorize. I dislike hands on usually for most subjects except science.
    I'm don't know how much you know about cognitive functions, but disliking hands-on stuff suggests that Se (extroverted sensing) is not your main sensing function. That pushed me a little further towards Si. (The functions for ISTJ are Si Te Fi Ne).
    I think new ideas are fine as long as they don't affect me, seem extremely stupid or are offensive.
    This strikes me as a little too removed from ideas for an intuitive. Intuitives want to jump into new ideas, not be unaffected by them. The distaste for ideas that are offensive would make sense as a manifestation of Feeling, but you don't seem like a Feeler.
    I think actions speak more than words unfortunately. Some wars can be solved by words alone.
    This was actually an ambiguous response because the second statement seems to suggest that words speak louder than actions (which contradicts the first statement), but I think the first statement reflects your true opinion. So that's sensing over intuition again.
    I'll say "No." I like shows more than multiple friends. And usually I like staying home.
    Again, not very Se.
    I love talking about whatever I am hyperfocused on. I rarely care about talking about them. Usually it is about a video game, the MBTI test, PC components and whatever I am currently interested in, refusing to talk about anything that isn't what I am interested in. People usually don't listen for that reason, I think.
    Limited conversation topics, not very interested in discussing things outside your own interests. Hyperfocus could mean several things. It could mean that you don't really "see" stuff that's outside of what you want to see, your interests. That's an Si kinda thing.
    18) What kind of things do you pay the least attention to in your life
    Politics is really it. Also the present. I like the future and past.
    Focus on the past is an Si sort of thing. Focus on the future could suggest something else, but it doesn't fit with the rest of your answers except that you're concerned about doing well in school. And being unconcerned with the present is another strike against Se.
    My close friends perceive me as annoying, sometimes blunt, very literal (one stranger asked if I was autistic even), dramatic, funny, a smart ass and an overachiever. I think nothing is wrong. It's their opinion. They would never say I am disloyal, an excessive liar, depressed and figurative.
    Literal, not figurative. Sensing thing.

    @grumpytiger Issue is I can be consistent when working but I can also be spontaneous on other days. Usually if I have music on, I will be consistent and work until 4 AM for seven straight hours. But if I have no music then I just procrastinate and am not in my work mode. I like knowing what I get into and prefer working before playing.

    Yes looking before you leap is an introversion thing but Si in a higher stack with Ne in the lower stack can overthink their decisions to the point they can't come to one for a long time, which is what OP said they do.

    Yeah the support behind a new idea is a bit of a grey area and is dependent on what the new idea is - as a Ti user if there are inconsistencies I need to question until I understand how it works but I believe that's Si before Tx being less open. I'd think an xNxx would be more open than S there and the short answer, straight to the point answers seem Si-Te to me.

    Also be careful attributing any of that to aspergers - anyone will fit into literally any asperger trait. I do and I don't have it.
    I figured what OP meant by speaking about what they're only interested in is when Si users know a topic they really know a topic and want to learn more about it and one way of learning is by talking/sharing. Also when a topic we know is brought up we have so much information and thoughts and experiences on that topic we get enthusiastic and can talk about it at length.

    And finally I see some Fi there:
    " would rather be honest about who I am because if people start to know my true self later, they may regret it"
    disliking people doing things just to fit in.

    I could be completely wrong - but where do you see N? Do you see any Ni/Ne and where in the function stack?

    ETA: Also even the above comment strikes me as Si in that there are specific routines/environments related to sensing that can either motivate or demotivate. It just strikes me as Si but only because I relate to it. I could be completely wrong.

    @Mollinator5 liking to know what you get into is introversion. Not sure about the rest... liking J stuff (work before play) but not really living by that preference all the time. I also don't always btw lol. But I feel better when I do.

    Particular about the physical environment. That's another Si kinda thing.

    I thought the same thing but I didn't mention it because it seemed a bit weak as evidence. I thought it could just be strong introversion.

    I won't get deep into the function stacks thing bc I'm not completely sold on that part of the theory and I never was. The letters seem more reliable to me. So the inferior Fe comment was really tentative and I went more by letters there too really (IxTP).

    As for the idea thingy, OP said:

    "I do both, look behind it and ask why, but also look for information to support why it was made."

    As for the aspergers trait. The hyperfocus thing with talking only about the intense interests without worrying whether other people will listen really is specific to aspergers, I haven't EVER seen it in any MBTI ISTJ profile but I have in asperger descriptions a LOT.

    I really disagree that "anyone will fit into literally any asperger trait", that's really a loose interpretation of criteria and useless for a proper concrete diagnostic approach.

    As for the N - OP likes to look at the future, is fine with being weird, unconventional, dislikes hands-on approach unless it's about science (NT stuff), is relaxed about other people's views on things (e.g. about the opinions of friends), so is more flexible in mind than S.

    Overall NT approach with main interest in competence and theories.

    Maybe the competence thingy is stereotyping it too much as an NT but otherwise yeah, OP comes off as really theories focused and NT way more than SJ.

    Then we're talking two different languages and typing based on completely different points.

    "I do both, look behind it and ask why, but also look for information to support why it was made."

    As for the aspergers trait. The hyperfocus thing with talking only about the intense interests without worrying whether other people will listen really is specific to aspergers, I haven't EVER seen it in any MBTI ISTJ profile but I have in asperger descriptions a LOT.
    In aspergers the hyperfocus is literally that, a hyperfocus. As in, it takes up much of their thoughts and comes into play all throughout daily life. E.g I worked with a girl with aspergers who would relate everything to her favourite TV shows. Every. Day. OP hasn't suggested that they do this, only that they like to talk about the topics that they do like, whatever they are "currently" interested in.

    OP also has really good self-awareness about themselves and their weaknesses which people with aspergers tend not to unless they're very high functioning.

    But neither of us should be diagnosing here.

    I really disagree that "anyone will fit into literally any asperger trait", that's really a loose interpretation of criteria and useless for a proper concrete diagnostic approach. That just really is shitty reasoning.
    There are so many asperger/autism symptoms out there that people google it, see that they fit into one small symptom and believe that makes them autistic when it's actually just a regular trait. In autism the trait has to be excessive and to the point of not functioning in normal society. Plus, people with autism need to fit symptoms in different sections of criteria (sensory, communication/social etc) and not just one area. Example, I am very sensitive to sound to the point I would get very upset as a child at sound I couldn't control. I was also very shy and didn't interact with children. I was tested for autism because these are symptoms of autism but I do not have autism (I do have sensory processing disorder). Similarly, one could say "my child really likes dates/facts/this one specific toy - they must be autistic" when they actually aren't. That's why I think it's completely wrong to take one small sentence and assume it must be autism/asperger when it only even fits one part of one small symptom.

    As for the N - OP likes to look at the future, is fine with being weird, unconventional, dislikes hands-on approach unless it's about science (NT stuff), is relaxed about other people's views on things (e.g. about the opinions of friends), so is more flexible in mind than S.
    I think future thinking is way too vague to fit into S/N - one of my biggest issues in life is that I never stop to smell the roses because I'm too busy worrying about my future. N can be future orientated in that they are looking for new possibilities (Ne) or looking at future worldwide patterns (Ni) but Si itself can be future-orientated in an anxiety way. It's also been said by some SJs on here who are in the science field that they find science environments to be very SJ because it is by the book, following instructions. It depends entirely on the science and the methods and structure. Both N and S can be into it. You'll find many ISFPs who's whole identity is on being weird and unconventional hence why it is often linked to Fi. However, I don't get the impression it is OP's main outlook in life hence why I think it's Fi in the lower position.



    Maybe the competence thingy is stereotyping it too much as an NT but otherwise yeah, OP comes off as really theories focused and NT way more than SJ.
    It's not that I see her as SJ over NT, I see her as Si / Te / Fi which fits with NFP or STJ.

    Again, just my opinion, up to OP to see where they stand.
    Elwinz thanked this post.

    Ok I see what you meant about the asperger thing but I still think it's not that loose a criteria lol. Even if some people become "hypochonders" about it. I was not speaking about autism btw, just aspergers. Beyond that, I can only repeat what I already said above.

    N is always defined with future oriented thinking. I'm only really using the basic definitions, not really stretching them beyond what is already described.

    About science: I meant that OP doesn't like hands-on outside science, not that anyone who does science can only be NT. Hope that clarifies.

    I understand you type by functions. I give priority to the letters before functions because to me the functions stuff seems really really messy and easy to explain away and stretch in so many ways.

    And yeah it's all just our opinions, I hope some of it helps OP.

    Now I am confused. Oof
