    If these traits describe you... then it's probably dominant introversion that causes it;

    -Distrust of people
    -Stressed in groups of people
    -No particular difficulty getting along with people, but not comfortable around them (sometimes even friends)

    And lastly, if you feel any sort of... seperation... (as you say) from other people, does it happen along more in groups and/or strangers?

    Yes. I feel less separation when I'm alone.
    I guess I'll just settle for being an INTx. But I wanted my type to be definitive! Wait, that last sentence just pushed me over to the J side once again.

    Very little on the way of critiquing here. Mostly people are just trying to give affirmation to their iNtuitive hunches. This is not argumentation, this is just mere sophistry because they would rather put on an image of being right than arrive at the truth.

    Well, this is the Jish need for closure. This supports the case for you being an INTJ... but there is more to look for though.. I am not sure if you are one...

    No reason you can't be INTJ!

    All this means is that your dominant trait is your introversion (this begins to reach outside the limits of MBTI). As far as dominant traits go, I/E isn't so bad (it's also mine).

    If it makes you feel better, NPG, my personal introversion is extremely high (although it's improved over the years), and the answers you gave to gatsby's questions are the same ones I would have given as well. So you're certainly not odd (well, except for being odd like me *groan*).

    “Pleasure to me is wonder—the unexplored, the unexpected, the thing that is hidden and the changeless thing that lurks behind superficial mutability. To trace the remote in the immediate; the eternal in the ephemeral; the past in the present; the infinite in the finite; these are to me the springs of delight and beauty.” ~ H.P. Lovecraft

Hence why SJs are so difficult to convince of anything - and almost always revert to their social norm... while NPs tend to be so open that their brains fall out.)

    (Nuff said. Never seen it put better. Very good ENTJ.(Not you, the process you adopted to communicate.))
    Isn't it time for a colourful metaphor?

    What would it mean if I test INTJ and identify more with the INTJ profile, but my Ti and Ni are almost equal in strength (with my Te ranking quite a bit lower)?

    I'm having an identity crisis!
    With such high Ti, others will certainly become jealous. Don't worry though, you'll learn to love being envied by everyone for being totally cool.:pornstar:
