    Issue with personality type

    I have a problem finding my personality type since I tend to change my mind about things really quickly.
    I'm a bit confused especially thinking that the tests have said that I was ISTp, ENTp, ISTj, INFp and now ESTj.

    INFJ - The Protectors

    If you really want to know, you should spend time researching the typing system. Read detailed descriptions of all the types and instead of accepting the stereotypes at their surface, ask yourself what mental architecture is likely to cause them (here's a brief explanation)

    Also realize that mbti is not as extreme as some forum posts might have you think. Personalities exist on a continuum of often changing variables. Sometimes we are introverted, sometimes extroverted. We all use S and N functions. The fun comes in identifying which functions you rely on most often, and which functions you can work on strengthening

    INFP - The Idealists

    If learning about the cognitive processes doesn't help, because you have some strange combination that isn't supposed to go together, try looking into dominant-tertiary loops. https://personalitycafe.com/articles/...disorders.html

    Thanks but it didn't really help :/

    Short about me:
    I tend to despise my emotions

    I tend to tell people things that they get offended by without really knowing why they got offended.

    I tend to have a hard time with emotions (I almost start to cry when talking about something that I find sensitive or that affect me on an emotional level i.e. I almost started to cry when I was talking
    about an operation that I will go through)

    I'm easily hurt

    I take things personally really easily

    I want people to say what they think above telling white lies

    I automatically drop friendships when they aren't in my current environment (or I make them into acquaintances)

    If I hate someone, then I hate that person in a really stubborn way and they will have a really hard time to get on my good side.

    I don't do small-talks

    Do you think that I might be an INFP?

    I decided to take the matter into my own hands, and I read up on the MBTI definition of E, I, S, N, T, F, P, J, and decided that the functions I, S, T, and P suited me the best.
    So now I call myself an ISTP

    Um, the letters aren't the same as the functions.

    ISTP: Breaking Down the Type

    Dominant
    Se--the function that relies on a continuous feedback loop from the environment, so it pays attention to the environment.

    Auxiliary
    Ti--the analytical and systematic version of Thinking.

    Tertiary
    Fe--the community function, concerned with people and how they interact.

    Inferior
    Ni--the see-the-real-picture function, completely objective. (You shouldn't relate to this one much if you're an ISTP.)

    Not if it was Socionics, which it seemed to be. So you didn't fix it, you made it incomprehensible.

    Dnt fully rely on a test to tell you which type fits u best, introspection is key. Also when it comes to cognitive functions they can be a bit off and you can still be a certain type.

    Hope it works out for you
