    Which type am I - your opinion

    1) What aspect of your personality made you unsure of your type?
    - Different results from different tests.
    - Descriptions of 4 types fit all pretty good to me, but which one is the right one - hard to say.
    - I'm Libra horoscope so I'm anyway a very balanced person. Making the guessing very difficult to me.
    - The fact that introverted people often mistype the J vs P. I have read something about it. The only sure thing is that I am an introverted guy. At second I'm pretty sure that I'm more intuitive than sensing, because I hate traditions, I'm friendly but dislike politness, because it's just a forced way to be nice and results in people aren't honest. And I read that "sensing people" are more the healthy people, so it's people who avoid alcohol, smoking, tattoos, piercings and such unhealthy things. So I would already type myself as INXX.


    2) What do you yearn for in life? Why?
    I like to spent time with friends but mostly it somehow doesn't please me, when I do it. For different reasons. Often it's more bored than I thought,
    I like to improve things, have often lots of ideas to do or make something better. In my company I watch the workflow and see how to do something more fast, easier or more efficient. I develop the software they work with and I take care for their personal wishes aswell and when they like my ideas I improve the system.


    3) Think about a time where you felt like you were at your finest. Tell us what made you feel that way.
    When playing videogames I had a time I was playing in an online league with fascinating results, leading the top. I was really good in guessing what my enemies does next, which way he will try next to beat me. My great intuition and strategic skills made me wondering about myself. Well, but that was lots of years ago. I'm not the person who poses with this, and I don't have the need anymore to prove myself in videogames. I know my skills and I changed, meanwhile I try to enjoy videogames more. When creating an individual character to play, I don't only use the ones with perfect abilities, I also cherish the look of the character. Often I play without helmet (less protection) and see it as challenge to win anyway. For example: When the "orc" is the strongest, I would play another, human or elves anyway. There are lots of gamers who would criticize me for that, they don't care how they look or probably they want to look dangerous with an orc, then they made their perfect choice. But I know my abilities and do it in my idealistic way. When there is a skill-tree I would easily choose the best skills in my opinion and there wouldn't be any trouble having a fun time and be glorious to same time.

    4) What makes you feel inferior?
    I didnt visit university to learn webdesign. I strongly believed that it is worth the time when I already knew the most important things and I still can learn more by other faster ways. Often I am afraid that others prefer people who did visit a college, just for the tradition, but its not my past which matters, it's what I'm able to do anyways.

    5) What tends to weigh on your decisions? (Do you think about people, pro-cons, how you feel about it, etc.)
    I really often use pro-cons. I see the pro-cons on everything, even on things or people I don't like.
    But this doesn't mean that my decisions will effected to highly by that. For example: When I don't like a person even when he is good, I would avoid to take him. I rather take someone I like and when he isn't good enough I can teach him or make a deal that he MUST work better, when I should pick him. But something would happen only when I really hate that person. For example when he betrayed me or is too unfriendly, then he shouldn't wonder about my decision.

    6) When working on a project what is normally your emphasis? Do you like to have control of the outcome?
    Yes I want to have control, but in reality I have no other choice anyway, because I work alone. I care for usability more than others, but thats because I got taught that usability is important. I create useful things which also are efficient and offer good usability.

    7) Describe us a time where you had a lot of fun. How is your memory of it?
    I can't remember quickly what funny moments I had, but it might be a youtube video where they did read jokes. I don't often watch such videos, it happened by coinsidence because it was in my abo-list. That was some days ago and they read over 50 jokes, I don't remember any joke anymore, unfortunatly :)

    8) When you want to learn something new, what feels more natural for you? (Are you more prone to be hands on, to theorize, to memorize, etc)
    I am a learning-by-doer and I hate it to read books or learning something I'm not interested in. But when it is my intention to learn it and I have use for it then it is a big difference. In the internet you can fastly learn the parts which are interesting for you, so you don't have to read too much text. That's how I prefer it. But I often get expert quickly anyway by trying it by learn-by-do and after that reading tutorials and parts of the wikipedia pages or google results.

    9) How organized do you to think of yourself as?
    Not that good. But I'm very disciplined. My grammar (iny my language) is perfect. In English I'm not thaaat good, I know there will be some failures. I like to use notes, so I don't forget something and to have a structure of things should be done. And to see how much is still to do. Even in videogames I have lots of notes with calculations, lists of different things, to do plans and price lists for compare. Lists with coordinates of the virtual videogame worlds. For example in "DayZ" I noted server ip's and coordinates of my hidden tent places and different useful stuff. In videogames I'm in strategic topform.

    10) How do you judge new ideas? You try to understand the principles behind it to see if they make sense or do you look for information that supports it?
    When someone has an idea, I would like to know the reason, what will be better with that idea. Else there is no reason to catch the idea. There must be a reason. Even when someone's family member died and he would like to have freetime, then it's okay. It's a reason for that idea and I accept it.
    When someone want's to change the bachground-color of our website, from white to yellow, then the person needs to say why. For example a good argument is: The probability that visiters will click the Website again, is especially higher, when there is much of yellow color present. (true fact and I noticed it by myself too). My websites background color is usually rather black. And I noticed that I visited a foreign website with yellow background-color more often than my own black website.

    11) You find harmony by making sure everyone is doing fine and belonging to a given group or by making sure that you follow what you believe and being yourself?
    That's the hardest of all the questions, I answer it at least and still don't really know. I guess since I'm a loner anyway the right answer should be "I rather believe in myself". But of course I care about other people, but I'm not really good in this. I'm not a good carer for others, but I am very considerate and conscientious and I hate conflicts, fights, so it is important to me to keep the harmony up. Just when something is really important to me my priority changes. Then I fight for my goals automatically, when my importance or goals are in danger.

    12) Are you the kind that thinks before speaking or do you speak before thinking? Do you prefer one-on-one communication or group discussions?
    I think before talking. Some weeks ago a psychologic doctor critizised that I think way to long or to slow before answering his questions. But that was my preparing qualitative and CORRECT answers, preventing any misunderstanding. Because I was very careful when talking with a psychologist, especially because I already had bad experience with his collegues. So i thought a bit longer than usual people, to make sure he thinks something wrong. But indeed, this it isn't an particular case.

    13) Do you jump into action right away or do you like to know where are you jumping before leaping? Does action speaks more than words?
    No I would like to know where I will land, when I jump. And when someone offers me a drink I would like to know what it is. And when going out in night, I usually bother the others where we will go (or where we will go next). The others seem to dislike that.

    14) It's Saturday. You're at home, and your favorite show is about to start. Your friends call you for a night out. What will you do?
    Well, I would pick the show, because the friends I can meet them later again anyways. But at the moment there is no favorite show. On youtube I can choose the moment to show the videos anyway, so my choice would be "Meeting the friends", because I can still show youtube videos later.

    15) How do you act when you're stressed out?

    I smoke much. I am often stressed but I'm not often stressed "out". I mostly continue that what I'm doing excessive. I work excessive in my job until I'm finished, so my time will be free again after that. I also play videogames excessive. But even when going out I'm the guy who wanna stay longer. I don't like to have much plans open. But I don't like planning at all, because it means work. So I try to avoid apppointments and deadlines to avoid more stress.
    Probably a mannerism, that I root single hairs of mine, when stressed. I know a guy who does the same and I guess him an INFJ. But that wouldn't mean I'm the same.

    16) What makes you dislike the personalities of some people?
    selfish, ignorance, betrayers, resting on wrong laurels

    17) Is there anything you really like talking about with other people?
    I rather prefer deep conversations, no smalltalk or conversation with wrong politeness
    there are no specify subjects because I get bored when I already talked about something to often.

    18) What kind of things do pay the least attention to in your life
    It's really hard to determine the right answer, because I wouldn't get the most unimportant thing in my mind....
    I don't care if a suit fits 100%, nobody cares on normal clothes anyway, but suits must fit. I don't like such useless traditions. I also don't care if some of my clothes have a little damage. It would be horror for other people, but I really don't care if they like it. Reverse. I'm proud of my individualism and show others that it's not my clothes which do my work. It's just me and my clothes doesn't effect my work. But when I would work at another job, for a customer-oriented job in a specify establishment where it's part of the rules, I would cooperate in this case. I just don't respect it.
    On the other side... I don't like chaotic hair, i prefer haircuts with order. But my own haircut is to short anyway, but when it would be longer, i would groom it enough.

    19) How do your friends perceive you? What is wrong about their perception? ? What would your friends never say about your personality ?
    I am not that talkative but it also depends on the subject and so this happens rare. I am a good listener but I also have often problems to concentrate when someone talks to fast or when there is a specify points which makes me think, then often I stop listening them. Sometimes I ask them to repeat or when it's unintersting anyway I just try to continue listening...

    20) You got a whole day to do whatever you like. What kind of activities do you feel like doing?
    Playing videogames, Watching TV/youtube, or meeting friends, visiting a pub, listening music, internet stuff. (btw. I hate using phones and books).

    21) Bonus: I guess this story helps too
    One day with friends, I wasn't that talkative like the others (as always).
    Then the girl told us the story about her dog, that she found a nice way to keep him busy finally, so he isn't so disturbing to her.
    She puts dog food cookies into her socks and puts them on the floor, so the dog is occupied with trying to get the cookie out of the sock.
    I got a bad thought about it, that probably isn't that such a good idea. But I didn't say it, because it would piss her off.
    Unfortunatly after some sentences she mentioned it again, that she is happy about this. And I couldn't help myself but saying:
    "Isn't that like a reward for playing around with her clothes, maybe the dog will damage her other clothes too in future."
    And of course like guessed she looked at me pissed off, just like when a look could kill *haha*.

    My mother is very into aesthetics. While she fills the shelfs with art and ornaments, i see a free place where the cats could jump on it and have fun, since we only have 1 cat-tree, so my idea was to free the space of the shelfs so they can hang around there. But of course it's not my apartment so we let it how she likes it. An example which would lead me to the intuitive with many ideas. I also tested different kinds of water which the cats prefer to drink. Because they often prefer to drink the dirty water of the rain on the balcony.... so i tried variations of water (after 2 minutes microwave for example to destroy bacteriums). Or they seem to prefer specify container of the water dealing different, probably because of the chalk. Such experiments I enjoy to do.

    I hate watching sports. Most boring in the world is watching soccer or something. It would make more sense to play it myself for the healthy but even that is not necessary for me. Even on WM when everybody watches soccer as exception, then i don't watch it anyway. Because it just don't interest me. I'm telling this because I think that watching soccer is like using "Se" (watching all the people running around with a ball).

    Earlier I was watching a video on youtube where a guy explains the difference between ISTJ and INTJ. There he told about INTJ loves movies like Oldboy or Memento. And exactly those are my favorite movies I'm up to watch them more often, because usually I don't watch movies again I have already seen. (feels like wasting time). But he also mentioned that everyone could like those movies of course. So it isn't a prove that I am INTJ. Also the fact that I primary wear black and white clothes. It's no suits but it's black and white, so i can appear everywhere without to much attention or inappropriation.

    Another story: Once i visited my friend and he had lots of visiters. He was about to open a whine bottle of his uncle (a special one). But he wasn't sure if he should open the bottle of whine, so one of his friends got an idea: "You could switch the label with another full bottle". I was the only one laughing in the whole group. My friend noticed that and told them i laughed because "Actually it would be a good idea."

    Most test results type me as INTP or INTJ. Sometimes I got INFP or INFJ as a result. I also tried some special tests:
    - INTJ vs. INFJ 55% vs. 45%
    - INTJ vs. INTP 65% vs 35%
    - INFP vs. INFJ 65% vs 35%
    As you see the results are quiet confusing, but much questions are hard to answer. Often my opinion is just equal. And unfortunatly I didn't understand every english question 100% so I wasn't really happy with the results.

    Need more information. Your answers are all-over-the-place.

    You seem like you would prefer Fi, but I don't know if that's because you're an Fi preferrer or because you're Fe inferior.

    My initial thought is ISTP or ISFP or INTJ.

    edit:

    I would rule out INFJ entirely though. Don't know why you were even considering that one.

    edit:

    I know, I keep editing. Story of my life.

    I keep reading over your answers trying to find some insight. You seem like an Se preferrer. Like a strong Se preferrer. I would rule out INTP completely.

    Don't know what these people above ^ are smoking. You clearly don't prefer Ne. That much is crystal. I don't see any Ne or Si in your answers.

    See lots of Se and Ni.

    edit:

    Those stereotypes you listed about sensors are all rubbish. You're getting confused with Si sensors. Se sensors are very different.

    Go go read about the cognitive functions.

    edit:


    These cognitive functions I'm sure of for you:

    Se
    Ni

    These I'm iffy about for you:

    Te/Fi
    Ti/Fe

    INTP - The Thinkers


    Seem pretty INTJ to me! INTP would indeed be my second guess. I saw some evidence of Te and Ni though, so I'm guessing INTJ first.

    One thing people don't often take into account, is that due to the J/P issue with introverts, the IJs are dom perceivers and IPs are dom judgers. IPs actually tend to appreciate schedules and structure. I prefer to have all of my plans scheduled, including friend outings, and I don't like any surprises or nebulous concepts of things might be done whenever. INTJs and INTPs can be equally messy or clean, that really depends on a number of things. But basically, INTJs, as dominant Ni users, are often a little more relaxed and chill about having vague or last minute changes (even if they aren't really appreciated overall). I start pulling out my hair lol (not literally, but seriously, I will get really stressed out if I have surprise social expectations). INTJs also are usually less serious than INTPs as kids, if that helps. INPs tend to be super loners, and have difficulty fitting into the rest of the world. INTPs love absorbing knowledge for no reason, though might have difficulty recalling it when it is useful. INTJs, on the other hand, seem to prefer to only gain information when they need it, and when they do, they absorb it like a sponge.

    Fi vs Si might be something to look into as well. Si isn't necessarily about traditions and stuff. Its really about internal sensations. For example, an Se user might notice their surroundings - the flooring, the music, the smell, the notepad on the desk - while an Si user will notice that the lighting is giving them a headache, or the music is too quiet, or how the notepad felt under their fingers, or if its too cold. Basically, its about how the body is internally being affected from what I understand. Si seeks out past sensations as well, because it sorta has a sensation memory. It can cause people to seek out the past and recall old stories, but isn't necessarily all about that. Fi is kinda about values, I guess, but its about constructing values. It is very much interested in quality over quantity. While Fe users will spend a lot of nothing time together, Fi users from my experience, get irritated when emotional progress is not being made. Harmony is nice to the Fi user, and the Fi user cares about everyone's feelings, but it is most important to spend QUALITY time with others. I find that Fi users often like to have smaller circles of friends, especially NTJs and NFPs. They seem more interested in maintaining a few close relationships, including family, and not worrying about others quite as much (not that others don't matter - well to TJs they don't seem to lol - but its really just that they channel all their energy into these personal, close relationships and can't have that with everyone, so better to just keep up with these few really great ties). Fe users are actually harder to truly get to know. I've been learning lately that I am really open and chatty about my thoughts, but most people never find out how I truly feel. I don't often know how I feel either.

    Lastly, dom Ns and dom Ts have different humor. While INTPs and ENTPs can both be random and quirky, and INTJs and ENTJs can appreciate dry wit, the dom Ts (INTP&ENTJ) seem to really like the dry wit better than the quirky-random-layered-references jokes. Dom Ns (INTJs and ENTPs) seem to prefer the random-layered-references.

    INFP

    I edited some more informations into my text (below point 11). Thanks for your efforts.

    I don't think I am ISFP because they are art talented or at least art lovers. Since i know many such people I am very different.

    I considered the INFJ because often the INFJ is the result for many mistyped people who considered INTP vs INTJ.

    Also i often heard about that there are programmers like me who thought they were INTJ, but in real they were INFJs....

    But well. In my opinion the descriptions of the INTJ fit to me pretty well, but I just don't know if i really plan so much, i just don't have a compare to others in this case.

    I want to know how you respond to moral questions


    1. Should animated child pornography be legal? (Not actual child pornography, but animated child pornography). Why?

    2. Is it ever someone's obligation to help someone else? If yes, when? And why?



    Also an unrelated question:

    Which is more fun:
    1. Reading about information that is useful and beneficial to you
    2. Reading about information that is interesting to you

    Or do you find that the information that is beneficial to you overlaps with what is interesting to you? By that I mean, do you find it interesting because it is beneficial? Or is it simply interesting without having immediately relevant practical uses?



    1. Do you find deadlines motivating or soul-crushing?
    2. Do you find it difficult to sit still for long periods of time? Or to remain silent for long periods of time? Say, 4 hours.

    Yes then Si fits better to me than Se, because I indeed don't like to much lightning, i feel how it supports getting headache. And i also prefer a black background on my notepad, because the original white notepad is to much lightning into the face, supporting headache...

    INFP

    1. Should animated child pornography be legal? (Not actual child pornography, but animated child pornography). Why?
    I'm against censorship so it can be legal. Because it's not real and painted art has no limits. Even when it's stupid from me to call it art. Well I wouldn't watch those of course. I have moral, but individual moral.

    2. Is it ever someone's obligation to help someone else? If yes, when? And why?
    No. I dislike the rule that it is illegal in my country when you don't help in emergencies. For example when you don't even know how to do it or when you don't notice it then you get punished for that. It is nice when someone helps of course, but it shouldn't be forced. It's naturally that you help others and I guess I would, the more necessary it is and if I able to. But the free will is more important.

    1. Reading about information that is useful and beneficial to you
    2. Reading about information that is interesting to you
    3. Or do you find that the information that is beneficial to you overlaps with what is interesting to you? By that I mean, do you find it interesting because it is beneficial? Or is it simply interesting without having immediately relevant practical uses?


    Beneficial Information I prefer. But when bored there can come anything which is more interesting than the uninteresting information (better than nothing). Indeed I don't even know everything about my own job, because there is much unnecessary stuff I still can learn about it later. But already years later I still don't need to read about it. But I could, when it gets necessary. So it should be beneficial or at least entertaining enough to me to fight my boredom.

    1. Do you find deadlines motivating or soul-crushing?
    My company knows that I don't like deadlines, because I will do my job quick anyway, I just don't like the stress to "have to" do it quick, when it's not even necessary to set a deadline. But the world wouldn't sink when they give me a deadline. It's just mostly not necessary because I'm dutifully enough to do my work soon enough. And they saw it works and are all happy about my work.

    2. Do you find it difficult to sit still for long periods of time? Or to remain silent for long periods of time? Say, 4 hours.
    This isn't difficult. Mostly i do it anyway. But when I notice the silence I would turn on music, because I don't like the silence... I'm a depressed person and so I like it to keep me busy, so silence isn't how I prefer it.

    Edit: I would appreciate when you quote the parts of mine, which sound like Ni, because I still don't understand what the difference between Ni and Ne is. I just know its Intuition, but i wouldn't be able to read Ni or Ne out of others texts. Sounds interesting.
