    Not sure this applies to me or not. Primarily because from about junior high through my mid twenties, I rarely extroverted anything of meaning, and I tended to not let people in.

    As for knowing how I feel about things, or how I feel about an issue, I'm not certain the context you're referring to. With what I'll term life decisions, I pretty much decide all of them on my own, but I do appreciate and want affirmation from others, and can get stressed if I don't get it or do receive disapproval - but I'll still go through with it anyway. With little things, or little issues, I don't really need to talk it out - and I know exactly what I think or how I feel about something without needing to bounce it off others.

    It's the grey areas that I'll bounce things off others -- when I decide I'm getting nowhere on my own and I am seeking input.

    A specific example--someone in our church's leadership did something incredibly stupid. Some people wanted him to resign, others didn't. Initially I understood how it could have happened, didn't begrudge him, hoped he'd get a second chance, etc. Someone then asked me my views and, as I expressed these very sentiments I realized how $%(*&$ angry I was that he'd caused such an uproar. I really hadn't processed impact on community until I started discussing it....

    Most of the time, INFP does seem like a pretty good fit to me since Fi is my strongest function, but I think my weakest function is Se, and that would be more indicative of INxJ, and several others have told me that I seem a lot like an INFJ (I think this might be cases where I am showing more Ni than Fi or Ne in how I approach certain things), but I don't relate to most descriptions of Fe, so that just does not seem to make sense to me, and I think my value of logic is too low to be an INTJ (I value reasoning and like seeign that someone has put thought of some kind into their words and decisions but I don't see that as the same thing as logic as it is generaly though to apply to xxTx types) .

    I think a lot of my ocasional uncertainty comes down to not being sure if I'm using Ti or Te when I try to approach things impersonaly and if I use both, if I have a favoratism to one. I also find it easier to see when I'm using Ne than when I'm using Ni, but I'm not sure if I use Ni without knowing it and have a favoratism for it (in tests that show process weight, Ni is close to my Fi score and sometimes equal or greater depending on mood). I would also consider the possibility that I don't understand Fe and that I'm using it more often than I realize.

    If I were to self weight my processes, I think it would be...

    Fi -> Ni -> Ne -> Si -> Te -> Ti -> Fe -> Se
    and that does not really match any type, but as I mentioned, most of the time, its pretty easy for me to say INFP is a best (but not perfect) fit for me (if you remove Ni, then the top 4 fall into INFP perfectly).
