For years I've tested as an INFP, but I've recently come to accept that it comes from living in a very emotionally damaged home where I had to "mature" more rapidly than others. It skews my results, to a certain extent, because I place more importance on the skills I've found essential to "survival" than the ones that come more naturally. I'm always willing to accept a borderline judgement, but naturally I do feel myself INTP with a more active than usual Feeling awareness.
"The subject chooses to sit in shadow and search for wisdom by reflecting upon his trial. The problem is not that he is cold and wet, but that cold and wet seems problematic, so he embraces those hardships in order to best them."
I hate to give the cop-out answer here, but, I think it's different for each person. That's what makes this whole damn thing so tricky. There are different types of test takers, but what test could you make to determine that?
Go to sleep, iguana.
INTP. Type 1>6>5. sx/sp. Live and let live will just amount to might makes right
I have questioned my own type before, but there are so many of my own type with similar tendencies that I tend to suspect I'm close. On the other hand, I've also had an alarming number of quirks (but not general personality) in common with an ESTP on here, so that may not mean anything...
I have a lot of quirks in common with my ESTP mom. I think it may have to do with using the same functions. Our goofiness is also identical.
So, are you really your type, or do you wish you were your type???
That's a good question. It is so easy to get the wrong type being that thier are only 16 types that are to describe the complexities of a mind (though it could just seem complex, but based of assumption... i find it more complicated then not...) and thier always could be a bias when one takes a test, leading thier results to be scewed. I often doubt me being a INTP, but no other type are even close. and though thier could be a bias, my family and friends say it's the only thing i could be... i mean my next closest type is the INFP and thier is so freaking way i'm that nice and a "Dreamer"... as much as i wanted to be at first.
