    I was recently mistyped as an INTP by my INFJ friend's ENFP roommate (evidently he's the one who introduced my friends to MBTI, which eventually led one of them to get me into it).

    So I guess it's his fault I'm here.

    I'm usually mistyped as INTJ. Sometimes INTP, ISTJ, and ISFJ.

    This mistyping can be so strong that people will insist I'm the one who's mistyping myself even after I tell them what type I am. Sigh.

    A real INTJ would have a stronger rebuttal to an apparent mistyping than that.
    If a deaf INFP falls in the forest and no one is around to hear it, does it make a sound?

    I've taken many tests, and I've never once been mis-typed. But then again, I tend to score in an "extreme" way, meaning, I score very high on each facet of the I S T J letters. This is why I prefer a test of cognitive function, as opposed to individual letters....but even then....

    I still come out ISTJ. Very much so.

    Your type will take form depending on your honesty in your answers, which is reflective of your mood at the time (which I am mostly exempt to, seeing how I'm blank almost all of the time) and also by the test itself.

    I think the best way to find out your type is to study the functions and how they work, and more importantly, how they work in tandem, to find out which ones you use.

    The tests recognize ENFPs by their inconsistent answers

    Apparently, when I'm talking to someone who asks for advice, I go INFJ
    hmm...me too actually.

    I mistyped myself for a while; when I asked a friend whether I seemed more INTP or INTJ, I was actually told that there was no way I could ever possibly be a P.

    In my experience on the internet, INTJs have sometimes typed me as INTP, while INTPs usually type me as INTJ.

    Tests have occasionally given me all of the INs; the most usual results are the INTs.

    Online I've had people mistype me as INTJ, INTP, ENTJ, ENFP, INFP and INFJ. Why? Iunno for sure but I can guess...

    INTJ: I assume most typings were because I originally typed myself as that.

    INTP: I don't even accept ENTP 100% so that one's understandable.

    ENTJ: *shrug* Flak thinks I am but I have no clue.

    ENFP: would prolly be because I'm a Ne dom and can appear to be more 'emotional' than a thinker should be.

    INFP & INFJ: Sometimes when I join new boards people assume I'm a guy and mistake my fluffiness for a feeling preference.

    The only time I've ever been mistyped as a Sensor is on a Socionics board based solely on VI.

    Irl none of the people I associate with are into typology.

    Are you more open to being mistyped over the internet.
    I'm more likely to be mistyped over the internet because I hang on forums that revolve around typology, therefore people think they know and either guess without knowing my type or are sure I'm mistyped because 'they understand the system better than I know it in relation to myself', that and I don't know anyone irl who would try to type me.

    If so does that mean that V.I plays a big part when typing someone?
    Not so much VI in terms of physical features but mannerisms, style and how someone presents themselves irl certainly helps when typing and with a decent level of understanding it could be easier to type correctly, the down side of course, is you're not necessarily seeing what someone thinks in their writing like you can online.
