    I never understood Ni. From what I get it's when you analyze something from a good amount of point of views to gain understanding. I don't typically do that, to gain understanding for myself I will try to gather as much information as possible and come to a quick and mostly accurate conclusion.

    Sounds like an ENFJ.

    Or not?

    Must ponder... Shall make thread on this in near future.
    Anyone dreams I'm sure. I only see an excessive amount of natural craziness/imagination from the INXP.

    I have imagination, but it is very involved and dependent.

    I noticed an Ni comment. I think Ni is probably one of the more "alien" traits for most people who don't have it near the top. It is sometimes described as "prophetic" and "psychic". I have a few theories I have posted in my blog.

    As an example, I sometimes just KNOW the answer (I do this at work a ton solving problems), but that means S$%* in the business world, so I have to use my Te to explain it with logic and reasoning. How I know the answer, sometimes I have NO idea but after I know it I can make a system of logic from experience to make it rational. This trait even made it into my last performance review for being "unbelievably intuitive", and the guy who wrote it is a sensor:P

    INTJ's and INFJ's are (in)famous for this.

    Well, I don't really know a lot of INFPs IRL.

    Anyway...

    Similar humour, pointing out absurdities, some word play, um... stuff.

    Hidden zaniness and desire to do something creative, unusual and attention-gathering, that when it comes out really surprises people.

    Um... we're both introverts, and thus I don't feel a pressure to say something when talking to an INFP.

    Both pretty laissez-faire.

    imo and ime

    Is the MBTI an even hand?
    In theory.
    Not in the data.

    You cut a bread in two parts.
    How many cuts do you need?
    One.

    Where do you cut the bread?
    In the middle.

    A participarion is in the middle.
    A unit is not.

    The data is correct.
    The agent of the cut is not the cut.

    I think INTP's are concerned about being competent and INFP's are not. I think INFP's don't have an urge to prove themselves to others. They are in a way quite happy with themselves with their own value system.

    hmmm, that's news to me.
    I am aware of my own value system, but I'm more concerned with being perfect, I think I'm good, my values are good, blah blah, but not enough. Maybe it's just me.

    I actually used to think I was an INFP, so yeah, they're similar enough to mix up. Both are quite shy, quiet and subtle in communication, and both are difficult to read or get to know. As mentioned, both are also fairly zany when they want to be, and have weird streaks in taste and behavior. Both can come off as cold and arrogant to people who don't know them well, and both have similar problems fitting into social scenes. They are both fairly non-confrontational and laid back. So there is a lot in common between the two.

    I think, when manifested externally, the differences tend to include the following;

    -INFPs don't make fun of people too much, even if the person in question is hilarious or ridiculous in some undeniable way. INTPs will have no qualms about making fun of people.

    -INFPs will give you that "that's not right" look when you do something they consider bad, and then they won't tell you anything more about it. INTPs, OTOH, rarely disapprove, either in their minds or externally.

    -INFPs become more sweet when you get to know them and talk to them, and they like you enough to be comfortable opening up around you...INTPs do not. In other words, you will never observe an INTP and have an "awww" reaction to their behavior, whereas with an INFP that is very possible.
