    Default double typed.

    I'm double typed, but now I'm over thinking this.

    For the last 5 years I've been taking the Myers Briggs test once a year. The result has always been iNTP, until the other day. I must say the last 3 times, including tonight, I've taken the test at my job. (Yes I'm aware I took the test more then once this year but I've become intrigued) I took the test at home the other day (which is a new appartment). It wasn't the same test though which is a valuable piece of information, to keep in mind to prevent myself from overthinking to much. My results from the test I took at home said iNFJ.

    So what I'm getting at here is what I call "spacadet thinking" but what if our enviorments could change our types?

    At my job I work alone, I talk to people on the phone but its short interaction. The office is pretty boring place and the hvac unit noisy. Where at home being it's my first place, its complete reflection of my mind and feelings.

    I think I'll try and take the same test tommorow when I'm at home and see what results I get.

    What test have you been taking?

    If you're interested, you can take the official "Step I" MBTI here.

    ADDED: And if you're wondering what frame of mind you should be in when you take it, here's what the official MBTI Manual says:

The frame of reference desired in respondents is what has been termed the "shoes-off self." The "shoes-off self" fosters an attitude in which one functions naturally, smoothly, and effortlessly, and in which one is not going "against one's grain." The function of the MBTI is to provide the first step toward understanding one's natural preferences.
    And in case they're useful to you, I've put profile roundups for the four IN types in the spoiler.

    The test you linked is the test I normally take. For whatever reason the test I took at my apartment I shouldnt have even humored but there seems to be some sort of spontaneous logic behind it. I'm going to try this shoes-off self. and see where it leads me.

    Thanks for the spoilers and the response!

    Maybe my case will help you :

    I have been typed many times INTP. I am ENTP. But in my intimate life I am more looking and sometimes acting "like an ENFP".

    I am connected to my extrovert intuition, to my introvert thinking, as well as my feelings (if in a peaceful environment only).

    But when I meet a very good friend of mine who is ENFP, there is no doubt I am different with feelings and "more rational".


    To me that depends on how confident one can feel with "the opposites "(T/F for example).

    We are not robots ! And everyday one can still be surprised about his/her own behaviours and inner truths

    This was enlightening to hear! Thank you so much for sharing. I know I come off as a very robotic person from time to time and my inner truth scream at me some really outlandish things so I'm always I'm question. Only once did I score an entp yet I marked it off as in I was in a really good mood that day. I'm going to continue to seek whatever it is I'm seeking to find. But people like you make me a little more hopeful!
