    What's confusing about it exactly?

    It is my understanding that all the MBTI preferences run on a spectrum, hence the percentage points. It's a very rare person who is wholly Introverted or Extroverted...I remember reading something Jung said about that...that being wholly E or I was a sign of pathology.

    It says you scored INFP with 16% P.

    Yes, I did say that. I didn't mention the percentage points for the others, because it didn't seem relevant, since they have, for the most part remained unchanged.

    But your response didn't answer my question about what is confusing for you.

    Sorry, I thought it was obvious that 16% P means 84% J.

    No, it means 16% over the midline or what would be considered "neutral". We may be talking about different modes of measurement, perhaps?

    Very much different.

    not that simple. MBTI is all about cognitive functions. an INFP and INFJ you would think would be very similar, but no, they use COMPLETELY opposite functions. were we going solely off of spectra, I would be an INTJ or INTP.
    PS: I like to collect and observe rare enneagram/MBTI combinations. if you are indeed an INFP 8, I'm interested
    PPS: do you know your wing and instinct variant?

    JCF is all about cognitive functions. The MBTI has been subverted, so it's no longer the system of typology invented by Myers-Briggs, except in name.

    Doesn't the Myers-Briggs institute have pages about cognitive functions and function order, though?
    Tentative typing: ISFJ 6w5 or 9w1 (Sp/S[?]).
