    I think it's because INTJs go with ENFPs so well that everyone just wants to get with ENFPs. In my unbiased opinion.

    Fixed.

    It's probably due to an abundance of STJ's having simultaneous crushes on ENFPs and trying to be sneaky.
    "The most merciful thing in the world, I think, is the inability of the human mind to correlate all its contents... Some day the piecing together of dissociated knowledge will open up such terrifying vistas of reality, and of our frightful position therein, that we shall either go mad from the revelation or flee from the light into the peace and safety of a new Dark Age. " - H.P. Lovecraft

    How can you 'accurately' type if you don't have a solid frame of reference?
    Yes, there is alot of honest type uncertainty, honest in that the person is not putting on a pretense or trying to look cool, but still trying to understand the type system and perhaps themselves as well. As for why INTJ comes up so often during this learning process as a possible type - the difficulty of understanding Ni may be part of it, as well as Uumlau's ideas below:

    I see INTJs occasionally mistyping as INTPs, because they don't feel like they have the orderliness of a J.
    I see ISTJs occasionally mistyping as INTJs, because they're intellectual and rather smart.
    I see INFJs occasionally mistyping as INTJs, because (as CF mentioned) they've developed a hard, cynical edge.
    I see ISTPs occasionally mistyping as INTJs, because they're more practical than INTPs.

    I usually don't think it's because of the "coolness factor", though. Just an overall misconception of what the type means. If one thinks of type in a "result-oriented" way, then one is one's type because one fits the stereotype. If one thinks of type in a process-oriented way (as I do), then one is one's type because of how one thinks and processes information and ideas.
    I like this last distinction between outcome and process. Any type can do anything, behave in any way. It is how and why they do so that reveals their type.

    Another vote for this being a great point! There's too much stereotyping based on the idea that certain types never (or always) act a certain way, follow certain careers, etc. It's much more about how/why they do or don't do it, than the mere fact that they do or don't do it.

    Yeah, and I sort of wonder if the source isn't the issue. Like the descriptions given on some types so that people equate, "Well, I am bookish, quiet, and I like to read up on intellectual pursuits... clearly I am an INxx!"

    Or something.

    When I first got typed as an INFP, I whined about how I wanted to be ISFP because they were entitled "the Artist" and I had this moment where I felt I couldn't possibly be an artist if I wasn't an S. (In my defense I was an emo 18 year old. )

    Well congragulations as you are the very first N I have ever met who actually would not mind being seen as a sensor let alone to even desire to be a sensor so that makes you unique!
