    Default Forgive my insolence...

    ... as I skip the newbie forum.

    Hi. I'm an intp. Yay.

    And now I have a real query.

    Has anyone ever taken the test more than once, with a substantial amount of years in between, and gotten different results?

    In 2004, I was an infj, and it fit. My life changed dramatically and in 2009, I took it again on a whim, and have taken it twice since, and it says that I am an intp.

    What say ye?

    Hi there!

    The 1st time I took it was in highschool (in 97' or 98') and I scored ENFJ.

    Took the test years later and still scored the same, Ive taken the test tons of times- and always scored ENFJ (INFJ scored once).

    Anyway, welcome to the forum !

    Years ago, when I still had confidence, I scored as INTP, and even INTJ at times.
    But losing that confidence affected me a lot...Nowadays I usually score as INTP still, but it doesn't much fit me as I am quite irrational.

    5 years ago I received INTJ as a test result, dismissed it because I wasn't interested in MBTI. Took it 4 years ago, again, and I received INTJ. Since then, I've taken a lot of tests and the majority of my test results have been INTJ (The rest of the serious results being INFJ with low F)
    Johari/Nohari wall! Thanks in advance for filling it out.

    Welcome!

    It's a good idea to read the type profiles and see what fits you best. The tests are not very reliable.

    Years before I knew about the MBTI, I think I was in an Ni-Ti loop and I was fairly unhealthy, and I think I might have tested as a T then.

    I also skipped the introduction forum. Noobs != newbies.

    I always tested the same. Since my first MBTI test taken six years ago.

    Yes, that's happened to me. I was a solid INFJ from about 30 years. Then all of a sudden I started testing ISFJ. I asked people at work who've known me for years, though, and they said they thought it was because my job warped me, essentially. Which I think is partly true.

    But it's also true that as you get older, things shift, mentally, which changes the way you answer the questions on the test. I think that is more due to the way the test is worded than that you actually change type. I guess it's possible you actually change type, but I am not convinced of that and lean toward thinking it's fixed but may appear different depending on your frame of mind in your given circumstances.

    First time I took the MBTI test, I got ISTJ. Five years since I've first taken the MBTI, I've usually scored either INTJ or INFJ. It still goes back and forth, but by default, I've selected INFJ.

    Thanks y'all

    I found it pretty interesting last night when I clicked the 'type relationships' part on the INTP typelogic profile. The 'type relationship' between an INFJ and an INTP is 'advisor', which is defined as 'each has an area of insight that the other lacks'.

    Maybe I'm on my way to becoming a whole person.
