    I did not skip any questions. The majority of my answers were "moderate". In other test I have taken the fp sees to be on the very tipping point with the sj....and ISFj is the type that I seem to identify with alternatively.

    Your scores are not in full agreement regarding your type. Using a decision procedure that ranks the relative strength of your preferences, the best estimate of your type is ISFJ.

    This why longer tests can be more accurate - they report the main patterns & allow for some answers to contradict.
    Yes, with any test it'll be hard to get an overall perspective. I agree in theory longer tests should be more accurate, but for me they have about the same success rate as shorter ones.

    One example: While for most of the J/P answers I am an accommodater of new information and events (i.e., P = I flex to things, I'm pathetically P), I really REALLY resent it when other people change my plans at the last minute and have a hard time with it. Why? Two reasons:

    (1) I grew up in an alcoholic family where I felt constantly let down in terms of plans and doing things, or where I had all my plans decided for me by others without any concern over what I wanted, even having things changed at the last minute for me, it was disappointing and frustrating, and

    (2) I'm a strategic thinker and I plan a day out in my head so that everything happens as efficiently as possible, so I'm open to changes if *I* am the one who is allowed to determine where it falls in the day, but having someone else just change my plans at the last second and thus disrupting a sensible way to organize the day's events and making ME pick up the pieces really irks me. I don't like having to deal with someone else's mess after I've come up with a much better way to do it that has not been taken into consideration.

    Yet everywhere else, I'm pretty P; and if the intrusion doesn't disrupt my premade structure, I'm okay too.

    I answered that question honestly based on the individual question -- basically a more J answer -- but I was annoyed because I could tell what it was testing for and I knew it didn't align with my overall P nature.
    Yeah.... this is a problem with any test, and something that isn't really gonna go away.

    And, is a good illustration as to why there has to be a decent amount of flexibility built into mbti theory (and consequently by the developers of tests)... mbti may be true with its overarching themes/trends/patterns, but when it comes to specific behaviors as well as the expectations and assumptions of neat, precise lineups between dichotomy-views vs. cog. functions views, it doesn't seem to be reflected in reality. Also, there's always the problem of associating one thing or behavior with a specific function or dichotomy, when in reality it isn't a very accurate or relevant indicator of said function/dichotomy.

    With this particular test, due to the big number of XXXP and XXXJ results, there seems to be dissonance between dichotomy interpretation and the supposed tie with cog functions. Whether it's the questions being asked, the weight, or the ties between questions and type, in the code... I dunno.

    Same happened to me. I tend to vacillate between INFJ and INFP, but my "P" behavior is more learned... I can be very flexible and am totally okay with it now, but my natural state is to prefer more structure.

    Is the reason the test doesn't work right maybe because it's trying to reconcile cognitive processes with MBTI? I'm pretty sure from MBTI and from reading all the descriptions I've ever seen that I'm INFJ, but when I take the cognitive processes test my results don't align with INFj so it is contradictory. Could that be what's going on here?

    My behavior varies quite a bit depending on the circumstances, leading to apparently contradictory aspects to my person.

    For example:

    - I prefer working alone rather than in groups when I am getting evaluated on a project (think: grades, etc.).

    - I prefer working with people than working alone in a room somewhere staring at a computer, but then OTHER people are trying to get results. I'm merely the catalyst.

    For example:

    - I prefer truth and honesty in a relationship before love and affection. Why? Because if the love and affection isn't real, it isn't worth crap in a hand basket.

    - I prefer working through people and with people than focusing on my own egomaniacal desires.

    - I often don't even know what I want, feel, focusing on others.

    - I make decisions based on what I feel is right.

    For example:

    - I love brainstorming out loud with others.

    - I like sifting through the information on my own. I can focus better.

    - I get more information working WITH people.

    - I focus better when I work alone.

    For example:

    - I can be flexible with others, terribly strict with myself.

    - I can change my schedule to suit others because my job has taught me that.

    - It pisses me off if I have to wait a long time for follow through on something.

    - I feel better when something is complete. Then I don't stress about it anymore.

    - However, I put things off if I don't like doing them.

    - I put things off if I think it isn't perfect enough.

    - I like to take all things into account before making a decision.

    - I love the feeling of satisfaction and completion when a decision is made.

    All very contradictory stuff. This makes for hard analysis. But I haven't told a single lie. It's just who I am - not easy - a pain in the byte.

    Pretty much all of this, including many of the specific points you mentioned, applies to me, too

    I think that any test is going to have those sorts of problems, though. Sometimes, it's best to be flexible; other times, it's best not to be--and tests don't fare well in capturing 'inconsistent' behavior. Some behaviors are pretty easy to absolutely decide between.

    Which is more important for you to maintain in your relations with others?
    Truth and honesty
    Love and affection
    All 4 are important in maintaining relationships.

    Which better fits how you see yourself?
    Idealistic
    Intellectual
    So you can't be an intellectual idealist or an idealistic intellectual?


    When you have spoken less than the whole truth to a friend, is your motivation more often:
    An awareness of likely consequences
    A concern to not give offense
    Both.

    Which is more important to you?
    To treat those close to you with kindness
    To treat everyone fairly
    Both.

    Which is more natural for you when dealing with other people?
    To be aware of what works or doesn't work (cause/effect); in people relationships
    To be aware of your empathy (or anger); toward people
    Both

    Do you more often let
    Your head rule your heart
    Your heart rule your head
    Both. They work together. Well, those questions were certainly "fun."

    Well, this is true. For example when they ask me if I have highty-tighty magical shit and fancy dreams where I fly on teddy bears and awake upon a new theory the answer is:

    Uuuuuuuhhhhhh......no.....no..

    For a system based on interacting quadrants, it's weird how so many tests are based on dichotomies.

    A better way to ask the first questions:

    Most important in an relationship:
    Candidness
    Truth
    Affection
    Love

    How would you best describe yourself?
    Intellectual
    Pragmatic
    Idealistic
    Benevolent

    And if you say "those are too close together, a person could answer more than one!" that's the point.

    also: I guess that these situations are what "can't decide" or "Faint" is for

    Arghhhhhh nooo!!!!!!


    Why is there a differentiation between love and truth???? DUHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!

    /end being a pseudo-duck with an i

    Seriously. Candidness isn't necessary, but love and truth ALWAYSSSSSSSSSS. Affection is cool, but not nearly as important as love and truth, which I totally do not consider to be opposing or even different by any means.
