So I recently moved in with a new roommate and after a couple weeks I had him take the MBTI just out of interest, and his results... well befuddle me to be honest. His results came out INFJ (and then ISFJ after I had him retake and change the answers he wasnt perfectly sure of), and I swear thats not correct. So I took note of the traits he has that particulary stand out and wanted to ask what you guys think:
1. Talks almost incessantly. Can't seem to stand silence and finds it... awkward. To the point where he will break silence (welcome, blessed silence...) with an incredibly awkward comment.
2. These awkward comments typically have reference to his family in some way shape or form. Our first day as roommates, I asked him to tell me about him a little bit about himself. I was expecting where he was born, his hobbies, how many family members he has, maybe even a favorite color if he was feeling a bit dangerous, but what I got back was a 30 minutes lecture about how his parents were divorced when he was younger, how he has never known a real family and how his parents were very physical punishers...
3. He seems totally willing to relate any of this information to anybody who will sit still long enough to listen to it! He must be looking for sympathy in some way shape or form? But what he tells people is very personal information, its like he doesnt care who you are you are going to know all about his past.
4. He's got a very high school popularity mentality still, if we're in a group together its like he sizes the group up and immediately tries to make sure he isn't on the bottom by picking somebody he considers "weaker" or "lesser" in the group and then being, although occasionally, a tad brash with them.
5. Its almost as if I don't even see the real him on most occasions, like he swaps personalities sometimes depending on his mood or who is with. Its kind of frustrating because it seems like he puts on some sort of facade and occasionally his "real" self pokes out.
Is this typical INFJ behavior? Because its sure not how I consider them, what do you think?
