When very stressed and loaded with work, I "turn" into an STJ. (Of course, I don't literally turn into anything else, I just use the Si+Te combination more as they are better dealing with stress and work. It's quite tiring, so eventually I have to switch back to my Fi+Ne.)
I also appear very ENFP to others. My friends have often been surprised by the amount of alone time I need (or even by the fact that I need it).
Freude, schöner Götterfunken Tochter aus Elysium, Wir betreten feuertrunken, Himmlische, dein Heiligtum! Deine Zauber binden wieder Was die Mode streng geteilt; Alle Menschen werden Brüder, Wo dein sanfter Flügel weilt.
Although it doesn't fit the cognitive processes, I can kind of act like an ESFP when I'm stressed. I swear I had an ESFP " facade in some of my classes and many of the traits weren't so negative (even though I was being my shadow). Many people thought I was funny and fun and basically had a little tension with a couple of highly intuitive teachers because of my persona.
Exactly! Man, sometimes I think I'm going mad because of this, lol. I can definitely turn into an INTP within a matter of seconds if someone crosses me. I am severely sarcastic/cynical so I think I have a little of INTP with me at all times. But it just takes one stupid remark from someone and I'm practically gone lol.
to the poster: did you ever consider its a flair up of your shadow function when stressed. because its your shadow, your may not know how to handle it when it flairs up and it turns into anger. you cannot change to an INTP because anger doesn't equate thinking and the T in an INTP is introverted and has to do with how you process the information you are receiving from your extroverted intuition, it has nothing to do with anger or even being cold to the outside world.

I have really bad moon swings, but my center seems to hover over the INFP type..that is, when I'm not acting "normal". Sometimes at home, I may tend to act like an ENFP when I'm in an upbeat mood, but that isn't too public. But when I get down, my Introversion magnifies, and I completely cut off, even if I'm around other people.
Is it that by its indefiniteness it shadows forth the heartless voids and immensities of the universe, and thus stabs us from behind with the thought of annihilation, when beholding the white depths of the milky way?
