After reading the accusations that most of the NT's are mis-typed and doing some research, I find myself having an identity crisis.
I've always thought that the 4w5 Enneagram was a kind of weird fit for the INTJ personality type, but accepted that its possible. After reading more about the INFJ's though I have to notice a lot of similarities between the types.
So, how can a person know for sure INTJ or INFJ?
Shared Characteristics that I have:
Don't enjoy spontaneous physical contact
Hide feelings and reactions, shared only with a select few
Strong focus on future and possibilities
Tendency toward arrogance or 'know it all'
Can see the 'grand scheme' of things, mostly intuitively
Personal INFJ tendencies I have
Love reading (My Mother grounded me from books when I was little because it was the only thing I would be upset about her taking away)Great writing skills, more prone to Poetry, metaphors etc
At work, become more attached to people that the 'system'
Personal INTJ tendencies I have
Suspicious and skeptical of 'reality' and its use
very Self Confident - Don't care too much what others think
Very independent, since I was little (but I'm also an eldest child)
Keep in mind that the Enneagram 4w5 is THE Individualist, seeking to not be 'abandoned' or 'forgotten' because of being 'ordinary'. They also feel things very deeply, hurt, happiness, etc.
So how does one sort through this messiness of conflicting personas to discover the TRUTH!!!
