Thread: Type confusion IN[TF]P

    Default Type confusion IN[TF]P

    My function preferences don't seem to fit precisely within any type; my functions are Ne > Ti > Fi > Se > Ni > Te > Fe > Si. So I don't fit into either INTP or INFP, but I don't identify with any other types. This probably isn't enough information for anyone to help me, but I'm not sure what to say.

    The test you took is not MBTI(MBTI doesent measure function strengths, but possibilities for each 4 dichotomy, also it or Jungian type doesent list 8 functions), but some rip off that uses same names for functions but is quite different, so its no wonder that you couldnt get MBTI type out of it.

    Try this test - it's far better than most:

    Keys 2 Cognition - Cognitive Processes
    INFP 4w5 so/sp

    they've gone through and through me, like wine through water, and altered the colour of my mind.

    Right, so here's what I got:

    Cognitive Process Level of Development (Preference, Skill and Frequency of Use)
    extraverted Sensing (Se) ***************************** (29.2)
    average use
    introverted Sensing (Si) ******* (7.4)
    extraverted Intuiting (Ne) ************************************************** ****** (56.6)
    excellent use
    introverted Intuiting (Ni) *************************** (27.8)
    average use
    extraverted Thinking (Te) ******************* (19.8)
    limited use
    introverted Thinking (Ti) ********************************************* (45.5)
    excellent use
    extraverted Feeling (Fe) ******* (7.4)
    introverted Feeling (Fi) ********************************************** (46.3)
    excellent use

    I suppose that leaves me as INFP but with Se and Ti instead of Si and Te. Does that even make sense? Or am I getting the wrong idea about functions?
