    Default So am I an INFJ or what?

    Hey, so I have a few friends looking at the posts I make from day, think I am NOT an INFJ. I usually test weak on judging but weak on perceiving as well.

    So here are a few pointers about me:

    *I tend to be perfectionist in some things such as spelling, grammar, and making sure I get something to sound "right." (can explain why most of my posts are more to the point, maybe it's my English teacher in college, sometimes being comma crazy.)
    *I am a highly sensitive person and can feel insults quite easily, even though intellectually I tell myself, they're joking, and it seems like only things seem to get better if it's time, or people are there to support me.
    *Growing up, I never knew what I really wanted to be, but as soon as I found chemistry in high school, it was just something that was right for me.
    *Being highly sensitive, I don't like to fight, but I've learned the fact that everybody isn't going to like me for who I am, so there are some things that I like to do, isn't "socially" approved by everyone, but it makes me happy.
    *I have had a hard time finding "true" friends because I feel my interests are so different from everyone apart. But when I am forced into a group situation, I sometimes like to try to find something I "like" and something they "like," which doesn't work all the time, and people who refuse to express themselves bore me really quickly.
    *I was never neat and tidy with everything, but I love having plans made, and I can get irritated if things aren't working out right.
    *When I was younger, I was called weird a lot. To this day, people sometimes are shocked by the things I'm saying, not that I like shock value most of the time, but I really like to voice my opinion on something I may like.
    *I want to be successful, but I also want friends to share that success with, unfortunately, I don't have such friends yet.
    *I love one on one talking, but sometimes I can judge others and feel like even one on one doesn't make me feel comfortable.
    *I'm really talkative, one on one most of the time. I can go dead silent if I feel no one in the group cares, or don't know what they're talking about.
    *I like being realistic, but making imaginary situations that could only happen in real life.
    *I don't like to get my hands dirty in work, I prefer intellectual pursuits over practical.
    *Only sport I ever cared about was long distance running (Cross-Country, Distance Track)
    *I like to seek for sensations, sometimes I am worried I lose focus on my body when I do things for people I deeply care about. (Eat too much of their food, just to "please" them, laugh just to laugh and make them feel better about themselves) Some people find me naturally funny.
    *Girls have found me really attractive, and it's highly noticeable in their body language and sometimes even speech!
    *I have always preferred hanging out with women over men. (I'm a guy.)
    *I can't be away from music, but only certain kinds. I don't go for people people who are scared to say what they really like.
    *I am very open about myself, and can be self-critical at sometimes, and I catch my flaws right away and sometimes I do something about it.
    *I don't like to make people upset or show that I don't like them, so sometimes I flee *politely* when I can.
    *I can be a fan of the objective, but yet the subjective quite often too. I love philosophy, but only certain branches of it.
    *People say I am quite analytical with ideas and do as much as I can to find about myself as I can or problems that I can try to solve.
    *I am optimistic in most things and I love finding about other's perspective, sometimes it can make people upset because it makes them think I am trying to manipulate them.
    *People stay on my mind for a long time, of people I like, don't like, and people sometimes I barely just met. Especially, thinking if that girl could be a potential date. (Most of them after a while of thinking, I toss my thoughts away about intimate interests.)
    *I focus on the future, A LOT. Where am I going to be? What person am I going to be like? Am I successful? Do I have the right partner? Things like that.
    *I love food, music, and beauty in a lot of things.
    *I tend to be "Easily entertained" by a lot of things. I don't believe only "certain" things can make you happy.
    *When I feel sometimes impressed to, I make sure I let people know I do care about them, and they're lives if I felt they have been offended.
    *I dislike crowds and am easily soft-spoken. I worry what a lot of people think about me, regardless of what I make my decision on.
    *Personality seems like a big deal, because I want to know I am improving myself and not this "ideal" person.
    *I dislike labels, I love being independent and always on the move, and always searching for knowledge.
    *I sometimes can make premature judgments and find out I am wrong, and find out they are really cool people. I hate holding grudges, one of my strengths is to easily forgive others.
    *Believing in God was something very difficult for me, until I felt something later on in my life.
    *I sometimes make pauses before I try to say something profound.
    *I try to correct myself.
    *I even found later things to correct on before I finish this post, I mean seriously.
    *I get jealous of how people have inner peace quite a lot of the time, which can make me feel really lonely.
    *I scored INFX, xNFJ, INFJ, and INFP on a lot of my tests. I have scored 4w3, 4w5, 9w1, 5w4, and 6 once on differing perspectives of my life.
    *Also, if I don't control my thoughts, I can sound like a jerk because then I start "judging" things quickly if I feel confident in my position where I am at, now. Then that mellows me out and wants me to leave people alone.
    *Thoughts are consistently in my head. It's crazy or cray cray.
    *Sometimes I feel more like a girl than a guy and relate a lot to having being both brained.
    *People say I should be a counselor and people would go for me to solve their problems.
    *I always look for the "Second Skin" in people. Finding the underlying meaning in everything.
    *I am not too good at deciding on things that involve other people, good on things with myself.

    Okay, I might edit later and see if I think of anything else. But, objections, comments? what?

    I think you should not focous at how you score on P/J. You should rather focous on Fi vs Fe. It seems like you've been searching for things, that feels right for yourself, you're also perfectionistic, which is a sign of high value orientation which is a sign of Fi. I'd say you're INFP 4

    There's no proof that Fi = IXFP. Not that I'm arguing against INFP. It's just that we have a member on this forum who is ISTP/INFP but who identifies with Jung's Si-dom description. JCF and MBTI are more or less loosely correlated, and this also seems to depend on which types are being correlated.

    Where do you get 4? I thought 9 over 4.

    You are an Intuition dominant with a feeling preference over thinking. You are thus an ENFP or an INFJ. Pick your poison.

    To be cynical I think you just want conformation over what you have already decided to pick anyways. Nothing wrong with having issues with being secure in your opinion. I have major issues there myself.

    JCF and MBTI are more than correlated...If someone is not sure of their type, the best and the most accurate way is to figure out the functions. If we have a member ISTP/INFP member who identifies with Si, then it is most likely an INFP with very developed Si... All the calling for being uniqe..."I had wierd hobbies as a kid"... "I struggled to find "true friends" ..."I was called wierd..." "Highy sensitive..." Besides the whole post seems to scream out, "I am uniqe" ...Even though I feel more 4w3, than 4w5.

    You don't know if the most accurate way to an MBTI type is through functions. Given what I've seen on this forum, more people are coming here confused after looking at their function scores, not before looking at them.

    I see you don't need any cognitive functions to work out an enneatype.

    The same can be done with MBTI types. "I had weird hobbies as a kid," "I am unique," sounds like INFP. See, no JCF involved.

    You sound like a Limbic INFJ to me.

    "Limbic" refers to the Big Five temperament dimension that isn't included in the Myers-Briggs typology and is often referred to as "neuroticism" (although it isn't a psychological disorder). The Big Five/SLOAN typology labels it Emotional Stability and refers to the two poles as Calm and Limbic. Being Limbic on that dimension tends to be associated with, among other things, anxiety/worry-proneness; emotional sensitivity/volatility; proneness to annoyance/irritation; self-consciousness; and (sometimes) depression. I'm Limbic, and it makes me less of a cucumber than some of my fellow INTJs.

    I'd be curious to see your results on the official "Step I" MBTI, which you can take here.

    And, if you're interested, the Big Five test I generally point people to is this similarminds Big Five/SLOAN test, which will (purport to) type you on the Emotional Stability dimension (in addition to the four Big Five dimensions with substantial MBTI correlations). And I've put some more information about the Big Five and that similarminds test in the spoiler.

    People come here confused after taking cognitive functions tests, because cognitive functions tests, are not the right way to determine the functions. You have to do some serious research about the functions, collect different sources and then try to truly understand what is each of 8 functions about. It's natural, that someone after taking functions test scores for example high on Ne,Ni comes here confused and ask "So what am I ENFP, or INFJ?" But it's just because highly intuitive types often seem to have a bit of both intuitive characteristics and tests usually suck in spotting this. The same is with very developed types, for example an ISFP with developed Ni, can score high as an introveted intuitive, even though he is not. Tests just make people feel cunfused.... "I had weird hobbies as a kid," "I am unique," can be any Fi type, or any introvert, or any intuitive type and does not point out at any type directly, but rather directly point out to ennea 4.
