# Thread: MBTI subtypes

1. ## MBTI subtypes

an interesting concept i found on another site (credit goes to childofheaven).

1. take the cognitive function test, and copy the functions

I.E.

2. then list your functions in order of their usage, and split them between the first four and the last four.

I.E.

3. copy & paste the list of possible results:
ESFJ=Fe, Si, Ne, Ti
ESFP=Se, Fi, Te, Ni
ENTP=Ne, Ti, Fe, Si
ENTJ=Te, Ni, Se, Fi
ENFJ=Fe, Ni, Se, Ti
ENFP=Ne, Fi, Te, Si
ISTJ=Si, Te, Fi, Ne
ISTP=Ti, Se, Ni, Fe
ESTP=Se, Ti, Fe, Ni
ESTJ=Te, Si, Ne Fi
INTJ=Ni, Te, Fi, Se
INTP=Ti, Ne, Si, Fe
INFP=Fi, Ne, Si, Te
ISFJ=Si, Fe, Ti, Ne
ISFP=Fi, Se, Ni, Te
INFJ=Ni, Fe, Ti, Se

4. remove the types whose dominant function is in your last 4, accordingly:
Fe: ENFJ, ESFJ
Fi: INFP, ISFP
Te: ENTJ, ESTJ
Ti: INTP, ISTP
Se: ESFP, ESTP
Si: ISFJ, ISTJ
Ne: ENTP, ENFP
Ni: INFJ, INTJ

I.E

5. do the same with those whose secondary function is in your last 4:
Fe: ISFJ, INFJ
Fi: ENFP, ESFP
Te: ISTJ, INTJ
Ti: ENTP, ESTP
Se: ISTP, ISFP
Si: ESFJ, ESTJ
Ne: INTP, INFP
Ni: ENTJ, ENFJ

I.E

6. for each, list which functions are missing from your top 4 functions.

I.E.

7. if any of them have all of your top 4 functions missing, remove them.

8. group the remaining types according to the missing functions:

I.E

9A. now use the order to determine which within each group fits you better and jump to step 13, or for the more analytically oriented, follow 9B to 12 and only then go to 13.

9B-12

13. the one which isn't your type, or alternatively has the highest difference (marking the highest inconsistency) is your subtype.

I.E.

2. Isn't INFJ kind of obvious from the function order Ti, Ne, Ni, Fe, Te, Se, Fi, Si? Why make it look like calculus?

3. introverted Feeling (Fi) ********************************************** (46.3)
extraverted Intuiting (Ne) ******************************************** (44.4)
introverted Intuiting (Ni) ************************************* (37.3)
extraverted Feeling (Fe) ****************************** (30.4)
extraverted Thinking (Te) ************************* (26)
introverted Sensing (Si) ********************** (22.1)
introverted Thinking (Ti) ******************** (20)
extraverted Sensing (Se) ************ (12.9)

Which makes me an INFP with an INFJ alter-ego, which apparently means I will intuitively feel the shit out of you.

4. Hmm, how do you know you don't score as an INFJ subtype purely because of your obsession with them?

All it looks like you do is take the test, and then you take your standard type from the score (your highest to form a type would be NeTi, aka ENTP), and then you'll notice the Ni is the second highest possible base function aside from Ti (which you have to disclude for the sake of the way you're doing things, but what if someone is ENTP-INTP? Are you saying that wouldn't be possible?). Then after Ni, you'd have to take from either Fe or Te to form the second type, and with Fe being slightly higher you'd get ENTP-INFJ.

5. extraverted Sensing (Se) **************************************** (40.2)
excellent use
introverted Sensing (Si) ****************** (18.7)
limited use
extraverted Intuiting (Ne) ********************************* (33.2)
good use
introverted Intuiting (Ni) ************************************ (36)
good use
extraverted Thinking (Te) ****************** (18.8)
limited use
introverted Thinking (Ti) ******************* (19.9)
limited use
extraverted Feeling (Fe) ********************** (22.9)
limited use
introverted Feeling (Fi) ************************************************** (50.5)

So I guess ISFP-INFJ it is...? Even though Fe is pretty low, and I use Te way more IRL than Fe for obvious reasons. Especially when working. I'd have to say using this system I'd probably be ISFP-INTJ.

6. introverted Feeling (Fi) ************************************************** * (51)
extraverted Intuiting (Ne) ********************************* (34)
introverted Thinking (Ti) ******************************* (31.7)
extraverted Thinking (Te) ****************************** (30.8)
introverted Intuiting (Ni) ****************************** (30.8)
introverted Sensing (Si) **************************** (28.7)
extraverted Sensing (Se) ******************** (20.7)
extraverted Feeling (Fe) *********** (11.7)

So, that would make me... INFP-INTP? I really don't know what to do with the tied functions, so I just threw Te in the top four because it worked a little better...

7. Of course this assumes that the test in question isnt....BOLLOCKS!

8. I get function order of: Fi Ne Ti Si Ni Te Fe Se

Which suggests INFP as main type.

I think I'm INTP, not INFP.

So maybe INTP with INFP subtype?

9. I had a novel idea, and took the 2 CF quizzes and averaged the results. It looks exactly like INTP and INTJ combined. Specifically, INTJ within INTP. So I can only conclude I am in fact INTX, INTP dominant.

Ti
Ni
Ne
Te
Fi
Si
Se
Fe

Either that or your answers were biased/not truely relating to a the intended cognative function but rather from another cognative function.
