    Default Recognition of one's own T/F preference

    This poll is inspired by RL experience as well as by the following intro thread exchange:

    I suppose you could either define me as an INXJ or an INFJ (I personally see much more of myself in the INFJ description than the INTJ, and have been scoring pretty consistently that way for the past year or so).

    I test as a T but I'm pretty certain I'm an F. Where does that go?

    Sounds pretty F to me!

    The point isn't so much what made you unsure but whether you were unsure of your preference at first. I originally tested as an ENTJ, but I immediately recognized that I was in fact an introvert upon exploring the dimensions. Did you have a similar experience or did your test result cause you to seriously doubt your preference?

    Uhm, the last two pairs of poll options are identical.

    From the very limited data, it seems IPs and EJs have had the easiest time in general identifying their judging function.

    I wonder if that's because both groups theoretically have T/F as their dominant, making it easier to recognize? I know I had a lot of trouble figuring out S/N but T/F was pretty obvious. Could have to do with strength of preference as well though.

    I know. I asked Geoff to fix this yesterday right after the poll was posted but he never responded. I've passed the buck to Jen.

    Does anyone have any doubts over my T preference?

    Sadly, it's one of my weaker functions... both in MBTI and out. I'm really a people person at heart.
