I can't think of any other way to put it, but I'm talking about people who have one or more letters of their MBTI type in question, or who have a pretty close call on one of them.
I'm interested to hear from people who are like this, or about them. For me it seems to represent the potential for going either way, where a person is theoretically suddenly made aware of a choice that's quite iminent, quite 'now', as to how they're going to be, how they're going to continue.
I mean, suppose you get a result of INFJ, with the F being only a very slight preference, only just enough to 'knock it over'. Do you go with F as your guide? Or do you consider the possibility of going with T? Do you have a sudden realisation that you could choose either one for your main mode, or that you have been alternating between the two all your life, with no major preference?
I say this because I was looking at the welcome thread for the IxFP, who wasn't sure whether she was S or N. My immediate thought was that, a while back, I wasn't sure whether I was E or I, having taken it as read for most of my life that I was an introvert - and nobody who knew me even up to six years ago would've disputed that. My personality gradually became more extraverted, until I found myself scoring a 60% preference for E in a test. Suddenly it opened up a new road to me - it got me thinking - hang on a minute, maybe my social skills and aspirations have changed a lot. Maybe I'm getting better at this. And it forced an alteration of my self-image. That in turn led to even greater extraversion so that now my preference is almost absolute towards E, and I find myself just as frustrated with introverts sometimes as I used to be overwhelmed and intimidated by extraverts.
I want to know how people who have a preference 'on the cusp' feel about it, or for people who are more sure about their preferences, whether they've ever doubted it or had a period in their life which, looking back, they can doubt whether they've always been the type they are now.
I'm just interested in that whole thing. Just give me your thoughts - any thoughts. Feed my Ne!
