    That's not type-related.

    Also, INFP is the self-doubting type, not ENFP. Self-doubting is related to type.

    Funny that you mention this, because a four friend and I both go to see mental health professionals. We do it begrudgingly though. I go because I need a medication prescription. There is no way I would otherwise. He goes because other people in his life demand it. We hate the whole process. They never tell us anything we don't already know, we have a tendency not to share because we are so withdrawn. It feels like a totally painful waste of time. Yes, there is this desire to find the perfect therapist who would recognize and see us for who we are- every four is looking for that mirror- but I have yet to find it and neither has he. Which makes everything all the more miserable.

    I think sixes tend to go to therapists more to get answers, advice, and support. I would never go to a therapist for that reason. Why would you seek out a therapist?

    (I will say one thing. Social fours sometimes look an awful lot like six to me- especially social 4w3s. So it's entirely possible that's your deal. Like I said, it's not like I know you. I'm just giving an impression on what I've seen of you. Also, six has a line to three, so they can seem image type-like at times.)

    I saw therapy as a way to 'fix' me and make me a better me. Sometimes I've felt the way you've described, while other times I've been cooperative depending on my motivation and my chemistry with the therapist.

    And yeah, it's a toughie. Image related issues is something I can relate to all too well; I don't know many males who've had it as intensely bad as I do. It seems like something completely trivial and feminine to the vast majority of guys.

    @Stansmith I think my first guess would be a 4. You seem to fluctuate between 1 and 7 a lot. 4w5 but I'm not 100% on the wing

    Second guess would be a 1.

    What would you want to do with your life if u could wave a magic wand and have it happen with u knowing u couldn't fail? And what's your dream job?

    Director/Writer, head of self-titled Fashion label, some sort of exotic architect, or a 19th century novelist. I'd be somewhat of a connoisseur.

    I'm very self-doubting of my self, and I'm 0% INFP! Unless you mean lack of faith in the self, which is quite different.

    Are you certain that you are 0% INFP?

    Yes. I suck terribly at Fi. Having all of those rigid values and extreme self-awareness would make my heart implode and explode my head off!

    Who said anything about Fi?

    I'm creating a test which will focus solely on the 16 types, not on individual letters or functions.
