    I am feeling very ENTP, but I'm in doohicky gadget construction mode right now. That will probably continue for 2 weeks then I will be more NFey.
    i think that would be infp haha but no...that doesn't fit to me maybe entp or enfp...i'd have to know you better to have a true opinion...i just see np'ness

    INTP looked like it fit better. Why'd you go back to INFJ?

    With the new terms I've been using for T/F: technical vs humane (replacing "impersonal/personal"), which I believe clear up the dichotomy when used in terms of one's focus; it seemed like you were clearly technical focused. I remember you thought you were FJ because you "used" Fe in certain situations, but it's the overall focus is Ti; and it did seem like more than tertiary.

    At one point in time I was thinking about the ENFPs I 've talked to here to get a feel for what ENFP is. You have a very different feel than bouncy ENFPs around here. But mostly I'm starting to feel that it's hard to get a complete reading off of someone on the internet, the medium is responsive to projection from the participant and the observer.

    Internet is indeed a bad medium to try and type other people. But that's part of the fun.

    From reading this thread, since I don't remember reading or seeing any of your posts elsewhere (It's not you, it's more like I am blind as a bat, the wooden kind, I meet new faces on this forum everyday, only to realize I already knew them some time later.), I would think INFP is a fit.

    You might seem as very T like because of your activities and interests, but the reasons for taking on those activities and interests is actually very feelery. And although your introverted nature doesn't seem very dominant, coupled with your life's experiences and choices you have made, it gives you the appearance of a very balanced person.

    I don't think I'm clearly technically focused. I just think I'm good at the language. And Fe is less important on the internet. Plus, I'm pretty sure I'm much more Ni than Ne.

    I am good at logic, but I think I'm more consciously focused on values. Also, realizing that I was enneagram type 1 helped me come up with a better self-narrative for INFJ.

    OK, then. I guess it must have been an inflated Puer I was seeing, after all. You used to impress me the way you laid things out sometimes.
    I imagine it would also be the whole male F thing. (Being male pushes one towards a T persona).
    You did seem a bit more "informative" and P-like, but then I guess I haven't seen enough of your interaction to get a full sense of it.

    I think that I've settled on NfP. I had some major introspection time this last weekend, and started uncovering a lot of things that gave me some insight. A lot of things that make me seem NT have do with my environment. I had absolutely *huge* pressure to conform an supress any NF characteristics growing up. I had a very deep conviction in my faith when I was a kid, and while that was encouraged, only certain types of rigid outward expressions were allowed. The religion is very businesslike, it's like going to church at a real estate office. The thing that prompted me to leave wasn't that the religion didn't make logical sense, it was that I was increasingly unable to believe that what they preached was characteristic of a God who loves.

    On top of that I grew up in a Latino culture, a kind of rough one. I learned that there were certain types of things you didn't do, one of which is to show anything that might allude to weakness of any type. It was a kind of armor I had to wear in my school days.

    Most of my life has been characterized by trying to be what other people wanted, so as not to dissapoint. This is not an NT sentiment. I have a very NT friend and he grew up in a similar environment, and is actually still part of his religion. He delt with it in a totally different fasion than I did. I tried to change myself until I almost broke and then rejected it. He just managed to section walls off of himself and rationally evaluated that he was getting more out of his connections than if he just cut and run. His religion was just a little less strict than mine, though.

    You're an Enneagram 9, if that means anything to you, you've said quite a lot that indicates this, I'll go back and find each part if you wish. Try not to confuse enneagram traits with MBTI, the INTPs that 'live' at INTP central are mostly of the E5 type, that's the strong 'thinker' like vibe you get from them, you could still very well be an INTP, but... you seem to think about people quite a lot, and maybe factor them into your decisions? That's very much a feeler quality, if it is true.

    Try not to mix up imagination and intuition (I'm not saying you are, I have no idea what you might be thinking ), 9s are generally very imaginative whether they are intuitive or not, what defines intuition is a specific preference for seeking underlying meaning beyond the facts and figures. A sensor may notice every detail of a room, what it does, how it feels etc. whereas an intuitive might notice an aspect of the room, like it's atmosphere. The trees or the forest. I just realized that you are indeed likely to be an intuitive feeler . INFP 9? cool...

    Is it really easier to type people out there in the 'real' world? Particularly if the person is introverted. Imagine if you ran into an introvert in real life, would you really be able to guess at their type? When you run into an introvert on a forum (or an extravert I guess) they have the time to think and write and rewrite and address everything they're thinking without being interrupted or being put on the spot.

    The crucial part of what makes someone hard or easy to type is whether they know themselves very well, or whether you know them well enough so that they wont need to. You can get to know people through writing, just as much as through conversation. If someone lays out who they are accurately enough, it should be easy enough to type them. And I really think Qlippoth has actually done quite a good job of that, particularly since 9s have a lot of trouble seeing themselves clearly and often just give up.

    Oh, and Evan, I really see INTP in you, but then again, I know an INFJ, and she does give INTP vibes too, but is clearly not an INTP.

    Well, that and other things. I personally find it very hard to type balanced and healthy middle aged people in real life. The ones in real life that are easy to type, have obvious traits that show, that doesn't mean that all people of a certain type exhibit these traits. :P

    But in that sense, there are both introverted as well as extraverted people that are hard to type without getting to know them very well.

    But on the internet, all you have is what people type up, and what they type up has been given thought. It takes away some of the spontanious traits some types would normally exhibit, unless they feel unrestricted by the internet.
