    Anyone who wants to help me figure out my type?

    I need some help. Ive been doing research and even did the socionics test. All the tests end up telling me i am INTJ. But i doubt that.

    Although i love debating, planning my future, thinking about ?abstract? things like parallel universes or some paradoxes, i dont come up with that stuff myself. INTJS are said to be always buzzing with new ideas and be masterminds but im not that creative. i won’t come up with a debate topic or something like parallel universes. i would need to hear it in a conversation or read it or watch a movie which triggers my interest.
    There are many things that are too complicated for me. A text with many complicated words is exhausting. I think INTJ would be intelligent enough for that.


    I am also not interested in science or maths, there are too many details that I can’t deal with. I dont know how knowing how to calculate or knowing how destillation works will help me in my life. its not interesting. physics has too much math in it and i dont want to know how enzymes work in my body. * id rather know about psychology and what is outside the universe.

    The only subject im good in is history. Not because its interesting but because its easy to learn. i dont need to learn details, i just need to remember a more or less interesting story about a queen or a war.



    Introverted or Extroverted?

    I prefer being at home alone over being with people. I dont like parties or social events.*

    Ne or Ni?

    Since i use Te i guess i use Ni but i dont get it.
    I read that Ne likes to discuss possibilities, while Ni likes discussing potential conclusions. Also INTJ are said to have many „AHA!“ moments which i dont recall having had. But maybe thats because of my bad memory. I dont understand the potential conclusion thing but i guess i like to discuss possibilities?
    Could someone give me an real life example of the difference?

    Te or Ti?

    When i get information i need to order it in my head first in order to think about it. I dont always think before i talk, only if theres a problem or something difficult.

    This „Order before thinking“ happens all the time when im learning for school. I can’t just learn out of the book. I need to write the stuff down and order and structure it my own way in order to be able to get it in my head.*

    Same when im planning future events. There will always be a point where i write it down and structure it. Like as a kid when i wanted a dog i would write down things like: monthly cost, pros cons, what breed (Would make another plan just for the breed), breeder or adoption,… * i do that all the time with plans for the future although they are unrealistic just like the dog which i knew i wasn’t getting in the next 10 years but i liked to have a structured vision of it no matter how unrealistic. *

    I create back up plans before a date. The thing is that i dont necessarily follow that plan, i often improvise but i need a vague plan in the back of my head


    That sounds a lot like INTJ but my life isn’t that organized and structured. I am very spontaneous. I dont stick with a plan, im sure i changed the breed of the dog a 1000 times, last month i was sure i wanted a rough collie but now im sure im going to adopt a mutt. if new information comes up i am able to change the plan. I never had strict people in my life, everything my father promised always ended up being different. I am not happy about that because i want control but i learned to deal with it.*

    Fe or Fi?


    I hate open conflicts or misunderstandings, i always want to fix things. If my sister is crying i want to fix it but not because i feel sorry for her or want to make her happy again but to get rid of a problem.*

    I also dont feel emphaty. Never for strangers and very very rarely for my family. The only emotion i occasionally feel is anger but its controllable and i can suppress it fast.
    Im not only hiding my emotions from other people but also from myself. Emotions are a weakness to me and i dont want to admit that im vulnerable. I usually use self deprecating humor or cynicism as a shield.

    Ill never understand someone crying about something which could be solved rationally.

    I hate it when people shut me up and i can’t defend myself with my arguments. i have my own moral and principles based on my own rational thinking which other people would view as cruel.*I consider people who dont share my mindset as stupid unless they prove me otherwise.



    Se or Si?

    Well since i use Fi id have to use Se. I dont mind changes and id rather learn something new everyday than do the same thing all over again. But im not an adrenaline junkie and im not always doing new things. I spend most of my days at home doing nothing. I feel like somethings missing and i want to go on adventures like in movies but at the moment its unrealistic so i dont do it.



    So does this sound like INTJ or something else to you? Am i wrong about some conclusions? Do you need to know anything else in order to tell me what i am?

    @skitake it is possible you could use Fi and still use Si (not necessarily Se)

    this would mean you could be something like ISTJ, just as another possibility, whose functions are Si, Te, Fi, Ne

    yes but that would mean id use Ne and Si instead of Ni and Se which im not sure of. Im pretty sure i use Se. Only Ni keeps me guessing because i dont quite get the difference. I've read about it but i think id need examples for dummies to visualize it.

    also an argument against me being an ISTJ is that im always late and not that neat. My home isn't a mess because i force myself to tidy up once in a while (mostly because my cats always find something to play with and wake me up at night) but if i had no visitors and no cats i wouldn't mind eating in bed and not tidying up or washing myself for weeks. Well i do shower but not as often as other people.

    I think Ni is notoriously hard to describe or get the notion of :)

    so just based on my description of myself do you agree with me being INTJ? Because i still dont know. Ive seen people here typing a person just by a sentence they've said.

    no I do not necessarily agree with you being INTJ

    I am not saying it is improbable, however I am not sure

    so is there any other type that seems more possible? is there anything else you'd need to know about me in order to judge?

    not sure, I think it is most important for you to do the judging

    however I do think INTJ and ISTJ are around the types I would guess for you :)

    My 2c on the matter. A small caveat is that some of my points are geared towards focusing on the semantics and writing style of your text, which may be inaccurate if English is not you're native language, or if you are writing with a forced style.

    First, a clarification, when you were choosing dogs, were you looking at the cost, breed, etc of each dog that you are considering, or are you saying that in your mind you already have an idea of cost and breed and you are simply looking for dogs that fulfill these criteria?

    From the rest of your answers, I would not necessarily agree with you being an INTJ. The reasons why I say so are as follows:
    First, your writing style does not reflect very strongly that of an Ni-dom. What you talked a lot about was not being able to pay attention to detail, or not being able to memorize certain things. This, to me, sounds a lot more like a Ne trait, as opposed to an Ni who tend to consider a lot more whether or not an IDEA fits into their mental network. Furthermore, when you said "I rather learn about psychology" it suggests to me that you haven't yet learned about it, but instead are just excited about the external idea, which again is more telling of Ne as opposed to Ni.

    Finally, when you mentioned that you like creating plans, but are willing to adapt, that's not necessarily indicative of a J; it could also be Ti-Ne interactions.

    So from what you have said so far, I would guess you to be an INTP as opposed to INTJ. Yes, it implies that you might be using Ne-Si as opposed to Ni-Se, and Ti-Fe instead of Te-Fi. If you disagree with this, feel free to say why it is you think that way, but from what I've read so far there's a lot more evidence of this function arrangement than that of an INTJ.

    Agreed, for what it's worth.
