I've been reading about MBTI on and off for about 3 years now, and, for some reason, I've been having an extremely difficult time typing myself. If you guys can help at all, I'd really appreciate it. (My enneagram is 5w4)
So, originally I got infj, but now I get mostly intj or occasionally intp. Introversion and intuition are at ~75%. It's the t,f and p,j where I'm having trouble. I've studied the 8 functions (Ne, Ni, etc.), but I can't seem to get a handle on what exactly I am. I can recognize them in other people (I think) but not myself.
Where I get most stuck is on the thinking and feeling. I can't even imagine making a decision (at least an important one) based on feeling (I've been watching Agents of Shield and ... they're driving me nuts. Do people really act like that?), but I do tend to include (or at least acknowledge) how things will affect others and can easily read the people I am close to.
However. I'm unsure as to whether or not this has to do with the fact that I grew up in an emotionally tense and explosive environment. That could be how and why I learned to read people, so as to avoid emotional (and occasionally physically abusive) outbursts. I also tend to be distant and ignore my emotions. This has come up a lot recently, even with my best friend of several years. She says she feels like she doesn't really even know anything about me because I'm so closed off.
I also believe I am an hsp. I've read about that too, and it can affect how strongly emotions are felt (It has to do with the chemical receptors in the brain. I don't remember exactly, but, basically, the brain has more sensation receptors and, because emotions can cause physical sensations, it tends to amplify them). Outer information (especially noise) is also overwhelming.
I would say I'm very open minded. If someone's point of view or opinion bothers me, I don't show it, I just listen. I tend to listen more than talk (Like, I could never say as much as is written here at once). I can predict how things will turn out and am right most of the time (unless the prediction is very pessimistic). I dislike not having anything to work towards, but I like being able to do what I want. Too much stress or emotionally charged situations tend to make me cry (I hate how often I cry). I show I care about people by doing things with or for them.
Thanks for the help. And, if you need any more information (like how I at 5'4" walk as fast as my 6', power-walking entj friend), just ask.
