I was professionally typed and agreed with the professionals. Admittedly, it was more than once, and I stubbornly resisted a few times before reading the descriptions. I remember the first time I was typed, I felt like a lot of things made more sense, like it was ok to be me. Childhood can be strange for an INJ child. I was relieved to be told that I wasn't an alien or switched at birth or something. Stress, dark circumstances, stubbornness, and adolescence took over for a while, though. A professional once discovered me in shadow mode. Anyway, despite taking the test in childhood, I wasn't incredibly informed as an adult. Once I sought out the information on my own (here included), things made more sense. Sometimes, I have trouble answering questions that center on my own behavior because I tend to be focused on other people most of the time, and the lens that I examine them with doesn't look inward so well (I can give excellent advice, but I have no idea what's good for *me*), so I did have some questions at first. I can relate to absolutely everyone on some level, too, which muddied up the waters further. Knowing that someone who was actually trained in MBTI as a science, reading a billion different descriptions, and personally knowing another individual of my type very closely were huge factors.
