    I dunno...

    I'd make a terrible waiter, but at the same time I'd work hard to make people happy. I'd probably forget to bring them things a lot, but would apologize and prioritize it as soon as it was pointed out to me. I'd be a bit frantic, but would sincerely want them to enjoy their meal.

    More than anything it'd be exhausting for me and I wouldn't even bother trying to act like I knew what I was doing, but I'd explain that to them and work hard in spite of it.

    So I don't know...

    You must have developed an additional cognitive function that most INTP's don't use, so it makes you look like other types.

    Yeah; my theory is that it is Ni, and that connects with the F functions to make me resemble INXJ.

    Or you could just be in a tertiary loop. LOL

    But tertiary loops from the description are supposed to be a bad thing, right? I don't have a mental disorder. Unless you count possible Asperger's and ADHD.

    I'm not arguing against INFJ; it's entirely possible. I just think I'm more than one type and I switch, with one close to the center that I am a little more often. And not ruling out being extroverted either, as something I switch into.

    Possibly whatever type I am ho ho ho. And im no INFP or INTP.

    Perhaps ENFP's would be even worse since they might be more vocal with their protests? Being introverted and spacey doesn't mean bad server to me.

    Although.....thinking about it I can see the reasoning as to why someone would think that; I suppose it does make sense. Id say any individual can be a bad server though since it is down to being able to cope with that environment and im not sure the inherency of cognition set out by a theory can be used to predict that.

    Although I dont mean to detract too much from what is a fun topic.

    Well the reason I'm a bad server is because I'm introverted and spacey. (But I've gotten a lot better; I'm pretty competent now.) I would think sensitive would be a weakness as well (which I'm not), which is more INFP than INTP or ENFP. True, ENFP would get angrier and might be more vengeful; but they would also have more social skills than either type due to being extroverted. Mature INFP's who have developed their Te a lot could be great at it, as could mature INTP's who have developed their Fe. And as you say, any type could have trouble with it as well as excel.

    As for you, I kind of get an F vibe, but that's all I can say since I don't know you irl; and that could be mistaken.

    Hm, my sister's ENFP and she's going to train to be a server I think (right now she's a hostess). I wonder how she'll do. She has great people skills, but I don't see that much Te in her, and she can get offended by rudeness like the other ENFP's mentioned. Then again she's great at her fast food job, which involves Te logistics. But I was good in fast food too.

    In the above quote @The Great One was suggesting you might be ISxP since they as well as INxJs are both introverts that utilize Ni in their function list though you are way too far out there to be S!
