1.) What is your MBTI type?
People think of me as INFJ, and given how mbti is laid out/'defined', it's the best bet.
2.) If you ever thought you were a different type, explain why.
I tested as INTJ in my early 20's. Also entertained the notion of INFP a while back, but after interacting with some INFP's in real life, decided it wasn't at all what I was.
As far as the 'why' - I've never really related to any one type description, and also depending on what method I would use to determine my type, I could end up with multiple possibilities. Which method is the 'right' one? [doesn't matter in the end]
I think many things/behaviors commonly associated with a particular type or a specific function shouldn't be - they're more 'human' traits shared by all to a certain extent, based on situation, or are wholly outside of mbti. Or are behaviors that have absolutely nothing to do with cognitive functioning.
3.) What are your percents? Are they on a 0-100% scale or 50-100% scale?
I has always been high - maybe in the 70's or 80's, N is typically in the 60's or 70's, F in the 50's or 60's (although in early 20's, it would have been the reverse), J in the 60's - 80's, maybe. Of course that's just based on dichotomy tests which may not be terribly accurate to begin with.
4.) What is your enneagram type (if known)?
1w9 makes the most sense at this point. At times in the past I thought 4w5, but after being on this forum for a while, and seeing 4w5's in action...I just doubt that's me.
5.) What types are you attracted for for friendship and why?
Pretty much all of my close friends - those I feel I 'connect' well with - are N's. Several INFJ's, a few INxP's, a few ENTJ's, and a few ENFP's.
6.) What types are you attracted to for romantic relations and why?
ENxx's. They're able to bring me out of my shell, and provide what I feel to be a needed balance/complement, which I haven't really experienced with fellow IN's. The chemistry is much more likely to 'sizzle' with EN's.
7.) What types do you generally enjoy working with and why?
I can't say I've thought about it, or really break people down at work into 'types' I work well with or not. I think I'm able to get along with most types in the working environment.
8.) What does your room/house look like?
Very clean and well organized. I enjoy decorating it too!
9.) How imaginative do you consider yourself and what are you typically imaginative about?
Oh, I dunno. I don't think I'm super imaginative, but don't think I'm unimaginative either. Somewhere in the middle. I can be good at silly repartee and just making up random things about people , like in a commentator way, but I've never been imaginative in the more stereotypical 'I daydream about unicorns and imagine myself on another planet' sense. I'll go on mental flights of fancy regarding my life and relationships and playing things out in my head, and stuff like that. Another random example - I enjoy sci-fi books, so it would be likely for me to ponder futuristic life. But it's always more of a realistic 'projection' with a sociological slant. And just in general, the way I approach my life -- there aren't many limits.
10.) What can you relate to about your type descriptions?
Eh...it really depends on the description. Some are pretty accurate, others not so much. I relate to - "readily grasp the hidden psychological stimuli behind the more observable dynamics of behavior and affect. Their amazing ability to deduce the inner workings of the mind, will and emotions of others" and "find themselves caught between the desire to express their wealth of feelings and moral conclusions about the actions and attitudes of others, and the awareness of the consequences of unbridled candor".
But when descriptions get into idiotic behavioral examples, that's where it starts to stop. Also I can't relate to the whole mystical/psychic slant people seem to throw onto INFJ's, and have also never seen myself as an 'activist' or 'champion of the oppressed or downtrodden'. I think I'm far too selfish for that.
11.) What other types can you relate to well?
Bits and pieces of many types. I think INxx's are all somewhat similar - I guess I've never seen huge gaping differences between all of them, even though I know obviously people approach things differently.
12.) What are you satisfied about in life?
I'm satisfied with ... well, a lot! I think I've had a great life overall, so far, and hope to keep learning and growing and experiencing new things. I've made several 'mistakes', although the way I look at things, I don't know that they're technically mistakes, as the accumulation of all of it has led me to where and who I am today. There are certainly pieces of my life that I think need to be addressed, and are gaping holes at the moment, but I've been able to focus on so many other things in the meantime - so don't think I'd change anything.
13.) What do you want to do as a career/what are you currently doing as a career? I don't have a clue what I want to do as a career and currently don't have one. I've never known what I want to be when I grow up. It's always been a subject matter that's plagued me.
