    Ha interesting! I think his environment and upbringing were very ti heavy... I think it was comfortable for him to converse that way maybe but he didn't seem to have an ounce of fe usage haha

    What about you? Do you feel like that could be the case for you?

    If I were to ask you to choose one thing you prioritize over all else what would you say?

    Change immoral to amoral and I reckon you've got something there.

    I disagree. I think INTPs have scorn for illogical social systems and niceties. It's like those games where you maneuver the mechanical arm to get a prize. You desire and are interested in the prize but playing the game is frustrating and often disappointing.

    But which is which?
    This is good as well. Interestingly so far, reading the replies, I've been able to identify with the INTP half of the equation much more than the INFP half. Interesting.

    Indeed, that works better.

    Just at present I've writing a number of letters (by email of course). I'm amazed that I have two distinct styles that I can switch between with ease. One I use for describing scientific concepts and the other I use for telling stories. There's maybe nothing unexpected here but I would rate myself as good at both. It's like I am two different people.

    The answer to your question however I think is that Ti overrules Fi. But all other markers tell me the opposite - that INfp is about right. It's a fascinating subject this - and probably really only of academic interest. I am after all the same person no matter what label I place upon myself.

    The bolded is true of my INFP boyfriend too. Actually, I think INTPs are generally more accepting of social systems than INFPs.

    I think INFPs and INTPs share a certain kind of melancholy tendency due to the aforementioned trouble with social systems. I agreed that INFPs will reject the systems outright as , unjust or immoral, while INTPs will be more confused and dismissive. Though I must say even when they reject social systems INFPs I think are more social successful. I think they have an odd combination intensity of belief and aloofness makes people interested in them.
