    I wanted to know if something like this is common, or have you heard of it? Or has it happened to you?
    i was a healthy J (NJ but J nonetheless) and im turning more and more P under prolonged stress. its scary as hell
    i had clear feelings! now my feelings are fuzzy and vague.

    I took a test about 7 years ago and I was a clear INFP.

    Since then, life had happened and maybe I was a bit bitter about a few things and I completely changed to ISTP. Now, the I and the P fit but I could never fully relate to the description of the ISTP.

    I have taken several different tests the say I am INFP in the last months.

    I used to act very ESTJish for the longest time but when that was not forced upon me, I started to become INFJ. I don't think I was ever a true ESTJ... my real INFJ side came out just within the last couple of years.

    Interestingly my son says that his personality has changed over time and that he too has gone from being extraverted to introverted. I laughed at his notion because I still see the extraversion in him. However both E/I can balance out over time as we gain more and more experiences that call for our opposite attitude. I became very extraverted after graduating from college and over the past 10 years have settled back into be more introverted. I figure at some point I will go through another decade of appearing extraverted. The question still remains that how are you when alone.

    Just because someone learns to deal with weaknesses in their personality doesn't mean they change.

    I was very ESFP as a young child but molded into an ENFP, and am now borderline INFP/ENFP, but probably a little more INFP.
    Is it that by its indefiniteness it shadows forth the heartless voids and immensities of the universe, and thus stabs us from behind with the thought of annihilation, when beholding the white depths of the milky way?

    I used to be a lot more extroverted, but I don't know what happened. Over time my scores on the tests have balanced out, now they are at a point where I = 60%, N = 60%, F = 51%, and P = 55%. *shrug* I'm still an INFP but I consider myself nicely balanced.

    Transition from ISTJ to ISFJ. Though I suppose it's more personal development that created the transition.

    Hm. I'd have figured myself as ISTP as a small child. Which changed vastly when I thought I got kicked out of school. (Then again... I distinctly remember crying and ranting about how I'd be moving away from my friends. So it's possible I was really an underdeveloped ISFJ but that might apply to all children regardless of type.)

    This. I would gamble that the traits the MBTI tests are more dependant on the chemical make-up in your brain. Also, the MBTI is self-scoring, so its results are only as good as the information that being fed into it. If you're not being truthful (with yourself and/or the test), your results will be wrong.
