    Default Your MBTI Type changes while drinking?

    I have noticed that when I take the MBTI Assessment while a bit tipsy my personality type changes, lol. I know this might seem irrelevant to most, but while on a date if your drinking you might mistakingly be compatible or incompatible with the person. Is this a common thing, if so do you think the J types would turn into P types or T types turn into F types?

    Drinking or not, depending on the version of a 'test' I take, the J/P flips back and forth all the time. Nothing new. Different questions, different results. You're focusing on a type changing, and I'm focusing on a test result changing. And even then, the so-called test result is only the beginning of investigation, not the end.

    I would just be a drunk INTJ.
    I like to rock n' roll all night and *part* of every day. I usually have errands... I can only rock from like 1-3.

    Type and the function stack is based on "ego-states", and being drunk puts you in another ego-state than what you normally put out to the world (which is the Persona), and so hence, behaving differently. Likely stuff repressed by your normal function preference. So it may be the inferior and/or tertiary that shows up (which will bear the opposite J/P), or it could be some other combination of repressed states.

    I don't think people change when they are drunk - it's when they act truest to who and what they really are.

    I don't thin their type changes either, though the way the express it might.

    When drinking I am peculiarly self-confident, joking around, always teasing and a bit childish. I can swear and make fun of people around me if they don't join me to play

    A normal attitude for a "drunk" (I have never been drunk I hate losing control) lady like me

    What you're describing as "truest to who they really are" is what I was describing as what was "suppressed" (and likely the inferior/tertiary "shadow type"). But as type is defined by the Persona we put on (the more mature ego states that carry our usual world view and outward goals via the preferred functions), this is not really considered their "truest" self. (It's really exchanging one set of consciousness for another, where "truest self" in Jungian terms is more about expansion of consciousness).

    When my INTJ is pissed at someone (which is exceedingly rare) and they've burned all bridges, he goes ENTP style troll on their ass.
    When my INTJ is pissed...he goes ESxP on the world, scaring waiters everywhere.

    It's utterly bizarre to witness, lemme tell ya.

    Definitely a silly drunk here. Mostly a silly sober too. Years ago I tried to be dignified, but it didn't take.
