    On a socionics forum I've seen an INFP confused over whether they were an ESTP.

    If my memory serves, you began your forum life here as an INTJ.

    i think I/ E can change, as well... at least a bit. i know that when i was in high school and was going out with my friends, i was probably more inclined to E behavior. deep down, i still was never an extrovert, i don't think.

    P and N have always been very clear with me.

    the problem i have with T and F are the functions, because i honestly think i use Ti... but i think i use Fi, as well. i know i use Fe... i think i do? ... and i probably use Te, as well... this divide is just not clear cut for me... at the moment, anyway.

    type "changes" are caused by mistyping. mbti type doesent change even if you learn to use functions that you didnt use before

    Nah it was INFP. INTJ was the phase that I discovered I used Fi and Ni; and didn't think it was possible for me to be an S because of the forumwide bias.

    That was for like 6 hours though.

    Tests seem to be a poor way to figure it out. Lots of words take on a differing context when reading a test question? Dependant upon what's going on in life right now.

    I'd never figured my own out just taking test. It'd always been wrong.

    Reading up made all the difference.

    It's not difficult to imagine an INFP thinking he was an ESTP if he was a guy. INFP males tend to have to come up with weird ways to adapt to their social environment to be accepted.

    Well it was actually a chick... That was the strange thing.

    That reminds me, on here that ESTP stellar renegade thought he was an INFP the first time he read through Kiersey's work.

    Past 30 or so most of the enfps I know would have T/F confusion. They look like thinkers-albeit they are in a corporate workplace. As Te grows in it hardens them and gives a sense of practicality.

    Lots of ENTPs here seem to have moments where they question if they are feelers or not-as Fe grows in and changes them, they think they may be ENFPs.

    Lots of ENTPs also mention a shadow INTJ state when they are younger-it seems like a distinct life phase for them. A few ENFPs mention a shadow INFJ like state.

    I know an ESTP at work who took a formal MBTI and came out an ENTJ. On the DISC test he took it was more clear-He came out as a high (disturbingly so) D for dominant, yet in reality he is very Fe heavy-in a yucky way. When the group saw this, they all questioned it as it matched none of his behaviors. The assumption is that he is selecting for what he would like to become, not for what he actually is.

    So lots of reasons, but the underlying message is that the four letter MBTI is flawed.

    (I broke it-after all of the questions, it made me pick if I was an ENFP or an ENTP based upon descriptions)

    disregard went from INFP to ENTJ.

    How the hell that happens is beyond me...

    But, errrrr, she won't tell me why.
