    Default If you rediscovered your type

    Suppose the following situation. You find delight in your type, it makes sense, and you see how it all fits. You recognize tests are prone to errors, and the individual's answers may change, giving different test results at time. Let's say you're seeing yourself as type ABCD right now - let's say it's your best guess, or you're rather certain about it.

    Then you stumble upon evidence that dwarfs all the evidence before. You get results from a more respected test, a test proven to be more valid, or you go through some long self-evaluation process and find out some major things about your inner world. All in your, the latter information source (whatever it may be) seems more trustworthy. Then you find out the results point out to a different type than you've thought so far.

    Write your established type first for clarity.

    How do you react, if ..

    1) the results would indicate an alternate I/E preference of your long established type?

    2) Different F/T preference?

    3) different S/N preference?

    4) Different J/P, but nothing else?

    5) Different J/P and something else, too? Reply with what would be the most likely.

    How do you react, if ..

    1) the results would indicate an alternate I/E preference of your long established type?
    INTJ, or keirsey's Mastermind, was my first result when introduced to Keirsey's personality, along with INTP.. so no wonder. Still, when have I become so introverted now? When did it happen?

    2) Different F/T preference?
    ENFJ? Well I was a more of a people's person few years back, with a drive to improve the community and my social group. I don't feel this so much now, or perhaps on a more mundane level. Perhaps this test reflects my ideal, rather than presence. I do long for feeling.. Well, I'm not an ENFJ. Curious test result, still.

    3) different S/N preference?
    ESTJ? Well, I've had to focus more on mundane things at the moment, and the situation have been a bit forced. I'm adaptable, so this reflects my adaptation to the moment.

    4) Different J/P, but nothing else?
    ENTP? Well, I recognized myself as ENTP for almost a year.. I wonder what has brought up the ENTPness from me. Perhaps I really like the leisurely, carefree type. I really do succeed in my life when I do that; So, it's possible for it to be my true type.

    5) Different J/P and something else, too? Reply with what would be the most likely.[/QUOTE]
    ESTP? Well I've got something of that.. but I'm too theoretical, or perhaps just learned. I've wanted to do just some my favorite thing over and over, ESTP style.. or have I misunderstood the type? No, this result is a bit strange to me.

    (ISTP)

    1) the results would indicate an alternate I/E preference of your long established type?

    This would be next to impossible for me, but if for some reason it turned out I was depressed etc, I would be very happy to see myself as an extrovert!

    I don't see any issue with that at all.

    2) Different F/T preference?

    I wouldn't find this unusual or daunting at all. I'm not that strongly T to start with, and a lot of the time I'd like to be a bit more agreeable. I'd probably have to get rid of my social anxiety to let that side out anyway, and that would be great.

    3) different S/N preference?

    Hmmm, how do I put this... I'd probably react like this

    Which is to say, this is the one divide in which I have an issue with both definitions, and whichever side I am on, I'd probably react relatively equally. Of course, in terms of the board, I'd be moving to the minority, which carries some additional weight.

    For this divide... I'm not quite sure how I would react. It's a pretty meaningless divide in my current state of mind.

    4) Different J/P, but nothing else?

    That's be great. Any ideas how I could do that?

    5) Different J/P and something else, too? Reply with what would be the most likely.

    I suppose I have to say the N/S divide, seeing how it was fuzzy before. Going from ISTP to INTJ would be just fine by me.

    Get a personal financial crisis that forces you to work your ass off.. did it for me, and I found it much better than what I had in the first place

    (Clarification: I found ENTJ way of thinking more appropriate and satisfying, and my actions and thoughts corresponded with ENTJ type.)

    Hmm, actually that's a pretty good idea. The Crisis, I mean. Sufficient external pressure could change a lot of behaviours.

    Lol!! GL with ya! Well I had tried to push myself to that direction for a long time, remembering what it had been like in the past. I gotta say the push was in the right direction. I haven't liked the push from N to S.. it's been extremely hard. T to F, I'd like that. E to I? Big deal. P to J? Yay!

    INTj here, who borderlines INTp and sometimes masquarades as either an ISTJ or an ENTP, depending on the situation.

    1) the results would indicate an alternate I/E preference of your long established type?
    I think it would be rather fun to be an ENTJ. However, I am quite introverted, so this would be rather unlikely for it to actually happen. It would be fun to see what reactions people had if it did... in certain situations I can come across as being extroverted.

    2) Different F/T preference?
    Ugh, ugh, ugh!!!! Fs drive me crazy. Granted, some of my closest friends are Fs, but I don't think I could ever adopt that style of thought process. What works for one person doesn't work for all of us and I rather like my ability to read sad books without getting all weepy over them and argue with someone else without getting my own feelings hurt. I've been such a strong T for so long (second only to my introversion!) that I don't think it would be realistic to switch over.

    3) different S/N preference?
    This I could learn to live with. My father's an ISTJ, albeit with a very weak S preference. There was one time I actually tested as an ISTJ, but I was in a really odd mood that day and had not slept for about a week prior. I've masqued as an ISTJ before, as this helps people think I'm more normal than I actually am. However, I've really learned to like my intuition and learned to rely on it to problem solve in most of my classes. So I'd have to work a whole heck of a lot harder, which is rather unfortunate.

    4) Different J/P, but nothing else?
    Since I borderline the J/P boundary with the INTJ/INTP, I highly doubt this would make much of a difference. I've always tested J, but both descriptions fit me quite well. Honestly, it would not make a difference.

    5) Different J/P and something else, too? Reply with what would be the most likely.
    I would actually love to be an ENTP, just to see what that is like. Though the I/E preference is the one where I'm polarized the strongest with regards to, the INTJ-ENTP would not be changing temperament, which is definately a plus. I'm definately not an SP temperament. In addition to disguising myself as an ISTJ, I've also masqued as an ENTP before, especially when I have to deal with being around a lot of people. Pity I can only keep that up for a short amount of time.
    Second most likely would actually be the INFP. I've been compared to a certain fictional character who is an INFP if I've ever seen one and my sister is an INFP... so it would be an interesting study of interpersonal dynamics to have two INFPs in the house with SJ parents... and an ESFP, which is what my other sister is.

    INTP

    1) the results would indicate an alternate I/E preference of your long established type?

    This may explain why i feel bit gloomy constantly.. i guess? Not very surprising though, because at one point i believed i was an extrovert. I may be bit happy since ENTP takes initiatives to their goals, etc, via practice, which i resent greatly.

    2) Different F/T preference?

    No way in Hell, can this test be right. I would lose my trust in these test and label as bs. No way i can be Feeling. 0%

    3) different S/N preference?
    ISTP.. hmm.. i doubt it, my intuition is ridiculously strong. Same as ^

    4) Different J/P, but nothing else?

    INTJ, i would be relatively happy, my greatest problem is doing repetetive tasks. If i was an intj i would now plan world destruction

    5) Different J/P and something else, too? Reply with what would be the most likelyENFP i may have been long long ago ( i know thats contradicting what i said earlier, but long ago i was a kind & happy)
    J is impossible i always been messy, random, flexible and loved surprises.
    S is unlikely either, my sensing isn't very high enough to beat my imba intuition.

    So ENTP? perhaps.. but the preferfence of brain functions doesn't match. But at the moment i think closest would be ENTP regardless. rest are just too off.

    shit g2g to class, lunch is over, excuse any grammar/spelling mistakes

    The question is not very applicable for me, since I don't trust tests to come up with correct type. They certainly can though.

    Basically in any of those situations, I would say "You are WRONG, test."
