    Default I'm a T, I'm an F

    I often have trouble pronouncing my type as T or F because I have a lot of qualities that can be described as both. In the end, I don't really think the dichotomies are exclusive of one another. So, in this thread, feel free to post the things that make you sound T and F. Maybe we could get some debates started about how to classify certain qualities and habits, too.

    (N)T
    Love criticizing ideas
    Used to read books on cosmology and theoretical physics
    Love integrating ideas and modeling information
    Enjoy sport-arguing
    Deal with problems through analysis
    Make jokes that play with language and logic

    (N)F
    Frequently come to the defense of the weak and helpless
    Love counseling people
    Make it a point to connect to people who seem lonely or who are neglected by others (waiters, homeless people)
    Used to be, and somewhat still am, obsessed with the paranormal
    Driven towards self-improvement and self-actualization and constantly monitor moods
    Very good are reading body language
    Jokes play with people's taboos

    "We grow up thinking that beliefs are something to be proud of, but they're really nothing but opinions one refuses to reconsider. Beliefs are easy. The stronger your beliefs are, the less open you are to growth and wisdom, because "strength of belief" is only the intensity with which you resist questioning yourself. As soon as you are proud of a belief, as soon as you think it adds something to who you are, then you've made it a part of your ego."

    Re: OP. I see myself in both of your lists, as well. I've always had a fascination with the paranormal, too, though I'm not convinced I actually believe in it.

    Honestly, from what I've seen of your interactions here, I think it's less that you like to counsel people and more that you like to be good at psychoanalyzing them or pushing their buttons. That's okay; sometimes it's helpful. And some people respond well to that sort of approach. Every once in a while, both here and on INTPc, I've seen you give some really nice, altruistic-type advice, sharing your personal experiences along with the shrink stuff. But a lot of the time it comes off as you sort of playing a game with people, picking at the scab and asking questions until they have to deal with it. That seems far more T to me.

    My F:
    Enjoy (good) poetry
    Love to perform and inhabit a character that's not me--to try and feel what they feel and enter another world.
    Prefer literature to math
    Enjoy giving service to others and making them happy

    The rest of me's pretty much T. I like to systemize pretty much everything. Even the F-type stuff.

    The fact that he is questioning his type after all this time is probably proof of that. If he were an INTJ or INFJ, he wouldn't be so indecisive.

    Yeah, I heard it the first time. For one thing, I'm not really questioning my type with this thread, just exploring. Another thing -- neither post is really substantive. If you want to give me a thoughtful post about why you think I'm INTP, I'd appreciate it much more, even though this isn't really the place for it. But shit like ^^ that... c'mon. What'm I supposed to do with that?

    ^lol

    I don't know anything about type theory, hence me never using "Fe", "Ni" and, Jung this and that, in any of my posts. But I am capable of "reverse" typing if you will, and with that, I do know that, as a group, you INTPs drive me nuts.

    It seems as if you guys are "painful" intellectuals. Sardonic at times and generally shrewd.

    *Don't shoot me, but as a type, you guys don't *seem* that happy with either life, or just yourselves.

    I don't know, I'll think about it more, and post more on it later.
