For some typology is just a way how to flatter their egos, not a self discovery tool.
    For some time I've typed myself as an ISTJ and really thought I was one...and I was content with it...

    But the more I learned about typology, I've come to realize that I am an INFJ...and the positive descriptions and attributes associated with INFJs did help me feel good about myself cause for most of my life I've felt as a weirdo, misfit, loner etc. that failed integrate into the world of normal people...

    Knowing my type helped to make sense of what I have been going through as well as make peace with myself (well partially at least)...

    Mistyping is part of the journey. We all see traits in other type we wish we embodied.

    Eh, I know at least of one INFJ that fits the inferior Se descriptive. I suppose you have to hunt them down. Even if you do catch one, what will you make with one?

    Don't let it bug you that much. Maybe it is part of the fun to go hunt for them

    i don't doubt that introverted feeling types have a different experience. and i do think extroversion can help me in taking resources from the external world to help my emotions, but it also makes me more susceptible to taking things in that actually make it worse, or focusing too much on the outside and submitting my feelings to a beating by whatever's out there. i can't imagine, though, not using the outside world so comfortably since it is almost a lifeline for me, so i don't envy you guys either.
    i hear you. committing to staying connected to those around you, those that make up your world, is a great challenge. it requires you to take responsibility to influence the outcomes of things in ways that you don't have full control over. it requires you to allow others to do what they're gonna do, while still continuing to care. it confronts you again and again with the question of whether you're truly willing to commit to do your best to give what you can.

    it's really difficult to dig down and be able to hold your awareness of your own needs in place while you're also doing the same for those around you. and that's before you even try out ways to negotiate that and create mutual benefit from those constraints.

    i think for me, sometimes, when i don't allow myself to truly recognize my own needs but get stuck on an attitude that keeps trying to take over my feelings to restore a sense of beauty, or comfort in what has happened, i lose my capacity to see where i'm at clearly enough to then recognize all the myriad of ways i could at least allow connecting with others to give me a little lift. my brother, an entp so/sp, told me many, many years ago how much doing something for someone else could help him feel better. i didn't realize that so much of it comes down to doing those things while still connecting to your own needs, and realizing that you can do something that can meet a need and, with enough focus, can start a new story built on these little investments.

    it's just that thing where a little work here and there can save you so much energy in the long-run, can give you flexibility to keep the momentum going so much better if you fully realize it.

    When angry, I sometimes lash out at people and say harsh things to hurt them, which I regret later ... Can this be coming from my shadow Ne-Fi?

    How would this work for INFPs...? A shadow Fe-Ni?
    Well the Opposing Personality and Senex/Witch are called the "sharp weapons" meaning that you use them only to attack others and/or yourself (For instance, in the INxJ, Ne is the opposing personality, meaning that when we go to attack others, we usually lament about how they are not taking into account other possibilities, and we attack ourselves with it by punching holes in our own plans by telling ourselves that we aren't taking into account other possibilities EDIT: this changes if we are being attacked by Ne, in which case we insult them by telling them that the given data points to one path). Here's a larger excerpt from the website along with some definitions for what exactly the Opp. Personality Complex and the Senex are.
