    I have a cousin who took the MBTI, and his jaw dropped on how accurate the profile was. I'd have to agree.

    But with you? No, I don't think it's always that simple :p

    I'm not absolutely positive because I think I might be an ISFP.

    I think INFPs always know they're INFPs, but sometimes try to be something else. Denial, basically. INTP is the most common port of call from what I've seen. The first time I read the INFP profile I knew it was me, even though I'd scored as INTP on the test. I've never doubted since.

    The issue is clouded somewhat by INFJs though. Some people can't seem to decide between INFP and INFJ. I always assumed they were either dishonest INFPs or INFJs being too hard on themselves. Most seem to settle on INFJ, rightly or wrongly.

    I took the MBTI when I was about 20. Can't say I was very surprised by the result.
    And compared to my friends (who are all far from being INFP), I had a pretty good idea what my "profile" was beforehand ;-) They are still rather clueless, or uninterested rather, in their personalities/psychology.

    i'm the same way, always stuck between the two... but i think a lot about possibilities and the future, and i consider myself to be somewhat "philosophical" (lol...). those are two things i read are more INFP than ISFP, so i guess i'm sticking with infp.

    Im an INFP Im not one that is like 'OMG that must be my type!' I've tested myself about 5 times;

    4/5 - Classed as an INFP
    1/5 - Classed as an ENFP

    I never judged myself to be an INFP I thought I might be one when I read up on it in an instance so then I went ahead and found out I actually was one.

    I get curious and like to learn about new things

    they can both be similar, i think, being Fi dom, but it's almost as simple as just seeing if you generally like to directly experience more first..they are both comparing what lines up to their Fi, but it seems infp can dissociate more quickly with potential situations/people, and appear more the introvert. the isfp likes going outside often, or meeting new people, or touching things before getting an idea of what fits. in fact, it kills us if we can't see enough. it's not as fun to fantasize or imagine. i can imagine things for about 10 seconds.. and then i go get a bag of chips. if i can't go to paris, and my choice is to imagine or eat a bag of chips, then the chips win every time. as for philosophy, i don't know about other isfps, but i like the philosophers who can break down things to a maxim. i like simplicity - and if i want to know about a more complicated philosopher, i swear i would prefer the damn cliffnotes. i do not need to read the critique of pure reason in it's totality. it's not that i'm stupid (but i do believe infps are generally more intelligent than i am) - it's just boring to play with any theorizing.
