i got ENTP, unfortunately. I was answering honestly and hoping it would give me accurate results.
If you were hoping for it to type you ENFP then you were most likely trying to make it type you ENFP.

Maybe you could differentiate types of interests?
There are no skews. The answers are relative to the tester and why you are typed something you've never been typed before is probably very reasonable.
It's up to one to rethink their answers or investigate further these results and what they mean.

The point of this test, like I've said, isn't to match up with your already tested personality type, but it is to give you insight on how you answered the questions, and if answered truthfully you will get an accurate result. Many people happen to type themselves a bit off, and some will go into thinking that they are this type without really paying attention to the reality of who they are.
Inaccurate typing as been very common with the MBTI. The answers of this test are dependent of each other and it takes into consideration dozens of variables, compared to MBTI which only have a limited quality 8 variables. The fact that one types as a 90% on feeling on the MBTI is not sufficient enough to even say they are an xxFx.
Delve further into these results to see the truth you seek. Preferences like extroversion or feeling aren't usually what they seem to be. There is a much more steady categorization with these multiple theories when combined.
Either way, there are probably values given to each type (if not, you could program it in easily), and you could just list the first three instead of number one only.
I do have the option to show the top 3 results, but I won't apply the feature due to further discrepancy and test manipulation. I want the questions to be answered with as little influence from theory as possible.

This sureness would yield a result based on MBTI theory and not subjective answering of the questions, which would be a usual problem of test takers. You may have just answered the questions based on what you think the test would type you as. This happens in most cases of MBTI pretyped taking new tests, and I don't recommend this approach for accuracy. I guarantee if you answer the questions about yourself accurately and take the needed amount of time to interpret the questions, you will get the correct result. There is no skewing of preferences.
