    I'm Labeled INTJ, starting to doubt...

    I've taken my personality test on many different sites, but I'm begining to question if thess are really my personality type. I take this test by stepping back and analyzing all my behaviors (like how I act toward my friends and family, how I react to situations, and what I normally do on a day to day basis) and trying to answer as honestly as possible how I deal with things emotionally from an objective standpoint. I'm analytical and logical when it comes to most situations, but I've been noticing now I exihibit traits that aren't reflective of the INTJ type which most sites label me as.

    I get very moved my music and certain works of art. I have a vivid imagination of worlds and places beyond ours. I look inward toward an inner world that I can retreat into a world of perfection and idealism where my imagination comes to life and vividly takes me into something I can never ever have in reality. I have this innate desire to be unique and stand out amongst my peers, not academically, but following the beat of my own drum (doing a triple major in three humanities, psychology, sociology, and philosophy just because I like the topics of study and a triple major is a rare flower, not for any practical reasons). On top of this I get self-concious in situations where I'm with people either I'm not familiar/comfortable with or people who I know are very judgemental and give off this "uncomfortable" vibe when I do something that isn't agreeable with them (and I should be aloof with these people as much as I am aloof to people of the world around me).

    All this seems very counterintuitive to and inconsistent with the tests I took that labeled me as INTJ. Here I the sites I took my personality test.

    After lurking on the intro boards, I did take the Enneagram test and my results are below:

    3 19 I must be impressive and attractive to survive.
    6 19 I must be secure and safe to survive.
    9 19 I must maintain peace/calm to survive.

    I've been trying to understand my personality more and more, but it seems like the results start to get inconsistent when I deviate off the Myer-Briggs test.

    Most tests have put me in INTJ, one in INFP, one in INTP, and one INFJ

    My thirst to know myself is strong, I'm sorry if this intro post is very overwhelming but if the senior members could help point to a directions where I can find answers I would greatly appreciate it!

    None of the things you listed rule out INTJ. Stereotypes are stereotypes, not good representations of the people within a certain group. Fill out one of the questionnaires at the top of this subforum.

    INTP - The Thinkers

    1st Questionnaire:

    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.

    Rainy days usually affect my judgement. I turn from an analytical type of thinker to an emotional type of thinker. If its sunny/daylight I get things done in a methodical and efficient way. If its night time or cloudy I get depressed and my though process is hindered by negativity. If I'm stressed I'd be focused on eliminating the source of stress or escaping it through games, I wouldn't take a personality questionnaire because they poke questions about my responsibilities which I'm already trying to avoid. When I was younger, montessori and elementary school teachers would ask my parents to test me for ADD or ADHD. They did the test themselves and of course as a kid I'd answer the questions the way my parents wanted so I wouldn't get punished. So now I'm speculating if I'm actually ADHD. Doctors have said before I was bipolar and major depression. My Korean parents who don't trust American doctors went to a Korean psychatrist who said I was perfectly normal and the only problem I possibly could have was a minor case in narcolepsy. Because of the inconsistency of therapists and psychatrists I don't trust any of them when it comes to medical diagnosis. I'm nineteen years old, I'm male, and right now I'm just feeling down. Not depressed or hopeless, but simply mellow.

    1.) Click on this link: Flickr: Explore! Look at the random photo for about 30 seconds. Copy and paste it here, and write about your impression of it.

    Image 1

    Something about technology that draws me to it. The colors are very mellow and neutral, they match my mood at this moment. Yet, I'm drawn to this photo for some reason. It just pulls me in and I can't explain why or how. Like, if I was looking at the photo during the day time, I think I would have chosen one of the other two that piqued my interest simply because I could be more reflective about them. This photo I have no reflections over. I am not interested in photography. I do have a camera, but I rarely use it. Maybe it reminds me of an inventory. I'm an MMO player so inventories are always a staple in game. Perhaps that could possibly be what subconciously pulled me to that image.

    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?

    I would probably be like first: How much time is there left before it starts? Then I would probably go about like: Let's see what the problem is. Next I would be like: Is this problem fixable or must we call the mechanic to fix this? Lastly if the problem is fixable, I would see how long it would take to fix it and make calculations to minimze concert time losses. If the problem isn't fixable I'd look for an alternative like hitchhiking other concert goers or looking for nearby public transport to take for the others. If not I'd accept the loss and just wait for the towing truck.

    My outward appearance would probably be just mostly of thinking and telling the other emotional wrecks in the car to calm the f*** down and let me think about a possible way to save the day. I would be very frank and honest. I would tell them not to bother me while I'm making assumptions and would be very frank about our current situation after I diagnose the problem.

    3.) You somehow make it to the concert. The driver wants to go to the afterparty 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?

    First off I'd be the one driving. Second I would be fine if everyone else went to the after party, after all we did pay for the tickets and drove all the way here to see the concert right? I'd be more than obliged to drive them to the party and back, but I'd be very strict about overdrinking. I don't want puke all over my car nor do I want to make a drive to the emergency room. As for myself I'd probably on my phone, listening to music, or playing one of my many portable game systems I keep in my car.

    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?

    It would pull a bad string inside of me, but as long as my friend isn't persistent or pestering about it then I could care less on the outside. As long as he keeps his opinions to himself and does not try to "convert" or "convince" me into believing what he or she believes in then hell, he can rant about it all day so as long as he isn't yelling into my ear.

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

    Depends, though usually I would remain distant and indifferent due to the fact that what is happening cannot be changed and if I attempted to prevent the actions in motion then I would simply be wasting my precious time and energy.

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

    This is gonna be a tl;dr. Sorry, but I have a lot to say about this one.

    Freedom and flexibility above all else.

    As a child I've been constantly hounded by my parents to get straight A's, live up to expectations, and obey the rules. They would guilt trip me, they would compare me to other children, and take away my freedoms to play games and enjoy myself. I hated how mother would force me to go to church. I hated how mother forced me on errands. I hated how father always cared about money and did not tolerate "childishness" or inexplicable childrens' behavior. This was only made worse in school. I was a daydreamer and I followed the beat of my own drum. I would always be reading a book or a game guide to satiate my addiction to the fantasy and imaginary world. I was always punished for this and I was always told to obey the rules or else I would be academically behind or I wouldn't be a good student later on. In high school, the strict teachers with their own rules that they dished out gave uneeded and seriously ridiculous detentions that were uneeded. They wanted students to represent their school in a good way, they valued conformity and only cared about how others viewed them rather than how they viewed themselves.

    This is why freedom is important to me. It prevents me from following the beat of my drum and pursuing what is truly important to me.

    Authenticity in kindness, generousity, goodness, and love.

    This one is through family, friendships, and therapy.

    In family my parents would guilt trip me and use money and their sweat and tears as leverage for my loyalty and affections. Whenever I say I love them or care about them, I feel very hollow and empty. Its a lie, my heart knows its a lie, but I pretend because its the only way to avoid punishment, get what I want/need, and prevent conflict. Gift-giving to my parents were simply diplomatic moves to win favors from other family members or friends. I saw all the hollow empty words of honey they say to each other in every exchange and it sickens me no less even to this day.

    In friendships I was constantly backstabbed and betrayed by people in high school and middle school. Bullying was frequent and I was the target of constant verbal abuse. I was always left out as well and though I complained to teachers, they didn't give a god damn care. In college it changed, people weren't actively seeking to hurt me, rather they could give a damn less about me and all my acts of kindness and gift-giving were just "things of the moment" and did not spread of give any incentive to give kindly or do the same. People were inherently selfish, despite the good I believed was lying dormant inside of them.

    Therapy was a place for healing and recovery. That is until they send you off, press the bills on you, and let you deal with your emotionally abusive parents on your own. Seriously I am appalled by the fact that therapy is set up just to make money off you and doesn't actually heal the wounds that are left inside you (I discovered you must do the healing yourself). They just put on a shitty bandage on your heart that the world, your parents, or whoever is out to get you will rip off and reopen the scars of pain you so desperately are trying to heal.

    This is why I believe in true authenticity in goodness. Your friends, your family, those who you surround yourself with should be people who genuinely care about your well being and health and are willing to put their time and effort to help you through troubled times, even if there is no monetary/material reward for helping you.

    Everyone is an individual entitled to whatever they believe in.

    My mother forced me to go to church. I was forced to go to Catholic school for better education. I was forced to study so I could get into a good college, which would land me a good job, which would get me a lot of money. Why? Why should I believe that these things will make me happy? Just because you believe, felt, or experienced these things that make you happy doesn't mean they will make every other person in the world happy. Look at the world, look at the prejudice, violence, and crimes committed purely because people disagree. If people just kept to themselves and simply let go and focused inward into themselves there wouldn't be conflict. I'd rather everyone be an island than be smashed together into earthquakes.

    Every person can do what they want, respect that and you won't be bothered.

    7a.) What about your personality most distinguishes you from everyone else?

    To adults I am very mature and practical. They see me as extremely competent and having a lot of potential success in the future as a working man. To kids my age and around my age, I am seen as eccentric and very random. Some even call me out for being crude and brutish because I have no regard for "social norms" or "manners" which they religiously follow.

    7b.) If you could change one thing about you personality, what would it be? Why?

    Nothing. If I changed anything about my personality, then it would change the fundemental being of who I am.

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

    Something is off or I don't feel comfortable in a certain place. If its so I analyze it quickly and come to an on the fly solution or if a solution cannot be reached, leave the situation. This usually happens when I'm interacting with people or if I'm in what I feel is a dangerous area.

    9a.) What activities energize you most?

    Listening to music. I get taken to another realm where my imagination flows and I feel happiness, freedom, and adventure. It rejuvenates me and allows me to face reality for a little while longer until I can go back to my dreamscape.

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

    Reality in general. Life is a shitty game where there is no way to win. You only make choices that always ends up in some sort of loss no matter how big the gain is. I feel like I gain nothing from reality because its so boring, predictable, and abusive.

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

    My imagination and philosophical side. Most people cannot comprehend it and because its not rooted in reality people don't see any gain from sharing my visions.

    This is long I'm sorry, but I wanted to be thorough.

    I'm not trained or anything, but to me you seem like a Perciever. I could be stereotyping. ISTP could work.

    ISTP seems more extroverted or rather, more inclined to intense activity due to their Sense dominant trait. I get intensity through music, but I don't like metal or energy intensity. Rather I enjoy melancholic, reflective, and nostalgic intensity, which seem a lot more intuition based.

    I'll post more in depth, but I'm seeing relatively heavy Ne usage.

    EDIT: or what appears to be Ne usage.

    EDIT 2: Also the instant you change your avatar, I'm stealing your current one.

    EDIT 3: I think you're Ni-Te. You think of yourself as a concept you examine from the perspectives of various people in your life and you relate everything back to yourself (games in particular). Your writing style is structured and concise (slightly unlike mine, though I have a preference for, but lack strong Te).

    Also, I'm not sure if it's indicative of anything, but you have a weird way of using similar words over and over in the same thought or paragraph. I'm not sure what that means, but I do it as well, occasionally.

    Thanks a lot for the feedback and the promise (or favor) of doing a followup when you have more time. I'll probably do some questionnaires tomorrow so there's more to study from.

    I wish I knew more about these different types and how they worked. I know there are 8 types and they go in pairs mutually exclusive to each other. What confuses me the most is the ordering or dominant and lesser traits. I need to look in to this more later.

    I'm sorry I don't have enough knowledge about cognitive functions to type you but this answer caught my attention because it's somewhat similar (although, not as tangential) to the way I answered the question. I was under the impression (an irrational one of course, seeing as there are billions of people in this world but I guess I'm considering the context of this sub-forum) that I was the only one who would react to the situation in such a way because no other questionnaire seemed to allude to it.

    Depends on what I was doing when the car broke down. Was I listening to music? Was I staring at the world outside? Was I introspecting? Was I talking to my friends? Was I sleeping? Was I thinking about the concert in anticipation? My initial thoughts would vary. For example, if I was listening to music, I wouldn't be perturbed. If I was thinking about the concert, I would definitely be annoyed. If I was talking to my friends and the discussion was interesting, I wouldn't mind at all.
    At some point, I'll begin to do some quick calculations in my head, taking into account the time on the watch, the time remaining for the concert to begin, the assumed time it would take for the car to repair, the assumed speed of the car and the distance to the concert and find out if I would be able to arrive at the concert in time. Of course, there's also the possibility that I might just continue talking to my friends or listening to music in which case, I might even welcome the pause, particularly if I was reluctantly going to the concert, which is another scenario to consider because then I might actually rejoice at the break down of the car. There are so many variables and contingencies here.
    I wonder which cognitive functions are responsible for this. It seems to be something an NT would be inclined to do.

    2nd Questionnaire

    1.) 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.

    Copy Pasta from my previous post: Rainy days usually affect my judgement. I turn from an analytical type of thinker to an emotional type of thinker. If its sunny/daylight I get things done in a methodical and efficient way. If its night time or cloudy I get depressed and my though process is hindered by negativity. If I'm stressed I'd be focused on eliminating the source of stress or escaping it through games, I wouldn't take a personality questionnaire because they poke questions about my responsibilities which I'm already trying to avoid. When I was younger, montessori and elementary school teachers would ask my parents to test me for ADD or ADHD. They did the test themselves and of course as a kid I'd answer the questions the way my parents wanted so I wouldn't get punished. So now I'm speculating if I'm actually ADHD. Doctors have said before I was bipolar and major depression. My Korean parents who don't trust American doctors went to a Korean psychatrist who said I was perfectly normal and the only problem I possibly could have was a minor case in narcolepsy. Because of the inconsistency of therapists and psychatrists I don't trust any of them when it comes to medical diagnosis. I'm nineteen years old, I'm male, and right now I'm just feeling down. Not depressed or hopeless, but simply mellow.

    2.) Study these two images here and here. Which one do you prefer and why? How would you describe it?

    First one. Colors are vibrant and there are elements of nature which I feel more attuned with than most man-made things. I love the beach on ocean, something about them that pulsate freedom which one of the things I value the most. The second image is just some woman have breakfast and its just boring and same old.

    3.) 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?

    Extremely independent. Gets things done. Doesn't like to be bothered. I find myself to be a very introverted and an independent person. Why? Simply because I like being alone because I get to pursue things that interest and satisfy me. I dislike it when I'm forced to do something I don't like or not interested in.

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

    Sometimes I wish I had a bit of artistic talent. I have so many ideas floating around in my head I want to paint on paper, but it never comes out the way its in my head. Like I don't want to change my inherent personality or all that I have right now would be gone, but I wish I had a bit of talent so I could make use of some of these vivid ideas. I don't want to be like my parents. My father is INTJ and my mother is ENTJ, they're so wrapped up in how reality cruel, "you gotta do what you gotta do," and Social Darwinism they've neglected my feelings and only focus on my survive and my socio-economic well being because its the most logical thing to do. When I become independent I want to do what I like to do, not what makes the most money. If I ever become a parent I won't do the same things my parents did to my children. Though if I'm a boyfriend or a husband, I'd definately have to learn a thing or two about emotions and considerations, hopefully my girlfriend would be patient with my shortcomings as a person.

    5.) 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?

    I describe myself is deep, artistic, and very very isolated. My peers can agree with the last point only. Mainly they say I'm aloof, dopey, and cannot be taken seriously. This makes is very difficult to reconcile my public self and my private self as the former is not taken seriously, while the latter is very serious. Which iritates me beyond end, but I do take my own sad revenge. If I cannot express these ideas to others, then I'll keep them all to myself.

    6.) 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.

    Authenticity, freedom, and beauty. Authenticity is important to me because it puts the heart and soul into anything. You can be authentically kind to other people because you care about their actual well-being and health, I can feel this difference and the warmth is simply...warming. When you act kind, it feels like a biscuit is being thrown to you and it doesn't hold any heartfelt significance from the giver. Those kinds of gifts always feel like crap. Freedom I important to me because I have the ability to choose what I want and choose what I like to do. It gives me the sense of ease when I can do something out of my own free will rather than at the command of another. Beauty. This is very subjective and I believe something is aesthetically pleasing if the form is toward the direction of perfection. This is why I love conceptual digital art on pixiv as well as natural objects like trees and the oceans. I dislike human made stylized art which is aimed to be unique to prove a point, despite being extremely ugly.

    7.) 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 just take them as they come and adapt. For example, being an intern at a lawfirm was my first time actually interning. I didn't know what I was doing, but I quickly learned what was done there, then I carved myself a little niche where I was comfortable and that I was accomplish a lot of work for the company.

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

    I just take all the stress and punishment and guide it all inward. When my parents start becoming verbally abusive. I simply endure and hold it all in. Afterward I try to get myself alone and listen to music to escape reality and enter my imagination where all the stresses and anger in life melts away in a reflective melody of perfection.

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

    When I'm really happy, its usually by myself on a nice day with one of the more reflective and happier tracks on my iPod. I'll become more perceptive of the world around me. The vibrant green of trees, flowers that I've never noticed before, and smells of different foods or dirt around me. I begin to take all the natural surroundings in and all the people of the world seem to disappear. I don't understand why this makes me happy though.

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

    I prefer 1 to 1 interactions because you get to see the person being mostly themselves and get more meaningful conversations about almost any topic. Group mentality is sheep mentality, people want ot be in groups because they cannot deal with themselves or another person on an intimate level. Groups circumvent this and make it much easier for people to joke around or have fun without having to actively face their own insecurities.

    11.) 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?

    Very not part of society. I could give a rat's ass less about society because society doesn't really involve me anyway. I'll take bits and parts of different society and cultures traditions, norms, values, and customs into my own personal life philosophy and develop my own personal code of beliefs based on what is simply logically right and what isn't. I see people as a whole as boring. Humans are humans, nothing special. Just bits of atomic particles organized in a way the permits self-awareness and movement. If the world all of a sudden blew up, then it wouldn't matter. The universe doesn't give a shit anyway.

    12.) Describe your relationship to authority. How do you perceive authority? What does it mean to you, and how do you deal with it?

    Its necessary for the weak minded or the rowdy types of people. The weak minded need some sort of system to follow because they cannot create their own. The rowdy and selfish people will follow their impulses and hurt others. Government is required to keep the weak minded functional and to keep the unruly people in line. Personally I dislike authority. I believe the intelligent people and the academia should be immune to government rules and policies simply because they're smart enough to create their own ethical moral system which they follow. Most of the time they wouldn't bother others unless situation calls for it. How I deal with authority, I obey simply out of ease. Why would I want to cause myself hassle by disobeying people who have power? However, this doesn't mean I respect their authority or their person, I just fear their power of punishment enough to obey.

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

    Order is the over-rigidity that Sentinels tend to put up because they cannot deal with anamolies. Chaos is the over-impulsiveness that Artisans follow to satiate their spontaneous desires. I dislike both. Too much order means no flexibility to be creative. Too much chaos means you're probably abusing other people just to selfishly attain what you desire. Both don't really manifest themselved in my life in a meaningful way. Yes I might feel the tug of either on occasion, but I don't see it as a day to day nusance as many people might describe it as.

    14.) 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 my financial cut off from my parents. I have no job, I'm pretty much hikikomori, and most of the things I enjoy or like to get are from my parents' bank accounts. The fear manifests itself in driving me to study and stressing out when I don't meet my parents expectations.

    15.) 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?

    To one day be able to express my ideas in a form that other can understand and share. I strive to achieve this somehow. Seriously I don't know where this comes from, I simply want to do this because it really is tugging at my heart.

    16a.) What activities energize you most?

    Copy Pasta: Reality in general. Life is a shitty game where there is no way to win. You only make choices that always ends up in some sort of loss no matter how big the gain is. I feel like I gain nothing from reality because its so boring, predictable, and abusive.

    16b.) What activities drain you most? Why?

    Copy Pasta: Real Life. Reality in general. Life is a shitty game where there is no way to win. You only make choices that always ends up in some sort of loss no matter how big the gain is. I feel like I gain nothing from reality because its so boring, predictable, and abusive.

    17.) 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.

    The understanding of self is key to understanding the world around you. I'm labeled as INTJ, but the mystical view of the world that I have makes me think otherwise. I like INFP's simply because they have this genuine warmth that's rarely shared with other people. This makes it very special and much more meaningful than most types of affection.

    My Ennegram is on the first post.

    18.) 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?

    I'll answer questions as this topic grows.
