    People show their inferior function when stressed though. Yours and mine both is Se.

    I notice when I'm stressed out and I test I get ISTJ. This might be a connection. Or it might be that you're really just IXFJ.

    Maybe this helps.

    As one of those X people, it's not cause I really believe I'm an X because I don't. I pretty sure of my type and which function the X is supposedly replacing.

    I keep an X in my profile to make other people work harder figuring out which I am (if they care to investigate). And I figure the least understood/stereotyped function on this forum is Sensing and one of the least understood temperaments is SJ. You think you know, but you have no idea. Plus sometimes I like scarring the NTPs. It's fun!

    But as for being an INTx or ESFx, it's not possible. The only time I think that about someone is if I can tell they're an extrovert, a feeler, and use sensing, or whatever but can't figure out if they're ESFJ or ESFP or whatever.
    Relationships have normal ebbs and flows. They do not automatically get better and better when the participants learn more and more about each other. Instead, the participants have to work through the tensions of the relationship (the dialectic) while they learn and group themselves and a parties in a relationships. At times the relationships is very open and sharing. Other time, one or both parties to the relationship need their space, or have other concerns, and the relationship is less open. The theory posits that these cycles occur throughout the life of the relationship as the persons try to balance their needs for privacy and open relationship.

    Yeah, I would be one of the people who qualifies as being 'very confused.'

    I also dislike seeing "X" in self-typing. But, I admit that there is a problem with the system of tests that apply percentages to I/E, F/T, etc. What if you get 50%? Then you really are an "X?" But, the functions are opposed. I suppose the most easy opposition to see is the I/E function. If you are energized by being around groups of people, you are E, if you are drained by it, you are I. You cannot be both; the energy can only move in one direction, one way. You may not be extremely introverted in which case only a little energy is drained, but there you are.

    I think a test/method of determining type which leaves someone with an "X" just needs to be refined a bit to more deeply measure or illuminate certain variables.

    I am an INTJ, but I know I'm low in T. What that does is in certain interactions I relate more like an INFJ would I have found. It doesn't mean I am an INFJ during those moments (well sometimes I feel I almost relate but still), but will sometimes act a tad differently. As long as you have the same dominant cognitive function, I think an X is possible but we need to define what it means (in my case you can cross over in some life functions but not completely flip flop at a whim. Personal growth in a way.)

    yeah that's also kind of why i put an x. so people can just figure me out for themselves also if they want to get to know me and not just assume I'm everything in one category. My first introduction thread was like that tooo :/ I rather people who are interested will look and find me ;o instead of everyone viewing me because of just one type they searching for :p

    but I guess overall I do relate to infj more.. but i don't care :o i'm just gonna keep ixfj to make you all irritated :P hehe jking, i'm also too lazy to change it! I'll be either lol

    im glad someone pointed this out. X's in any place of a type is kind of pointless (except in the E/I case, I could possibly see that). they just mean it as a placeholder
