    Anyway, so, as an ambivert, I'm now officially an IENsFTJP......

    I knew it, I'm omniscient.

    I'm so jealous right now.

    That being said, deciding whether you're one or the other is really tough and something that has plagued me every once in a while (S/N was much harder.) It's all about how you feel around people. Today I'm gonna go to sleep soon and get up at 1030 and be all tired but when I get to work I'm gonna start helping people and get all excited and energized. How would act and react in that situation? Would you need a chemical boost (cigarettes, coffee, etc.) or could you do it like me?

    Also when you hear the phone ringing do you run for cover or jump up and get? I'm so crazy E that I find myself answering the phone at my friends' houses and when I'm just about their I go, "What the heck am I doing?"

    You should really post some more info about yourself!
    Yes, I need a chemical boost. I'll be tired until I have coffee, and I'm only motivated by the possibility of showing off, and I don't need to be around anyone until I'm ready to do so. I hate answering the phone as well, and do not like to be interupted when I'm in a train of thought or in a work regiment.

    My motivation is not based on meeting someone, but on the possibility, if any, that I can in some way "impress" someone. I'm drained, until I've made a substantial impact or impression. Recently, I've even impressed and made an impact on a new friend, however, the more I get to know them, the more I find them really boring as they aren't as astute and don't understand things as substantially as I do. Most relationships are like that, until I've made a friendship that is lasting with depth the friendship will die without warning. Wow, especially relationships come to think of it!

    Most people I find draining, because they're stupid! While I'm around intelligent people, I'm the clown, because they're easier to impress, and I'm always confused for an extrovert around them, because my guard is completely absolved. MPD, ambivert, undefined???

    Example: I was watching "Shooter" with a group of 3 guys and 4 girls on Sunday, and my roommate Bruce thought he saw Jason Statham in the movie, and immediately I knew it wasn't him. Silence entered the room as everyone looked. Then, with little to no delay as the look alike came up again, I whispered loudly to my other roommate sitting next to me so everyone could hear, "Hey, can you tell Bruce he's an idiot for me", to which, Bruce instantly breaks out laughing. Now, the message and intent to an insecure person, would not normally yield laughter, rather an awkward and prolonged silence. Some of the stares I received around the room, were completely, "Oh my god, I can't believe he said that, does he realize what he might have done!", and it was ridiculous, because they couldn't understand the joke or the sarcastic intent. One boisterous laugh, in a room of 7, to me only suggests one thing!

    As well, it seems like I have to explain things to people all the time because no one else sees the answers that are so clearly evident to me. They are also, not well read, or informed, and too busy "doing" than "thinking through". This holds true in class especially, as I was never the person to put my hand up to ask a question, only to answer, if it was indeed important enough to do so. I'm even more of a shut in, when forced to be around circumstances and ideologies I foundationally disagree with. Hermit mode sets in like an unrelenting fog; that is to say, I am unable to move forward when I believe the basis of what I'm doing is fallible. I could never sell anyone on something I didn't foundationally agree with. I'd have a very hard time selling life insurance or defending someone on trial, as I'd be too busy questioning whether or not it's right, to get any work done.

    Doesn't apply to me so much. I don't feel strongly one way or the other actually, I release potential energy, which is also energized depending on the audience around me. Like catalystic energy waves, rather than energy strictly ascending from extroversion or strictly descending from introversion, I honestly feel both, quite regularly.

    All of them are so close, no wonder I'm so damned indecisive about frakking everything in life, and everything comes under such high pressured scrutiny. Being an ambivert is exhausting and confusing. That's it!!! Confusing, truly describes me.

    You sound INT to me. Most likely INTJ, as these sound like traits I typically find in my very INTj father.

    Just sayin'

    Haha, that's only because us INFJ's are 1.5% of the human population, and you've probably never had the opportunity to observe their behaviour patterns....since we're now talking about our understanding based on our experiences.......lol....

    As my results suggest, you're probably not far off, as my F and T only have a 3% difference.

    I'm saying so because the INFJs I've known - who've both had highly developed 'Thinking' to go with their 'F' preference - have a lot of patience with people, even ones they find 'stupid'. Their idealist nature makes them inclusive and seeking to find the good points of 'stupid' people. To an extent, anyway.

    NFs aren't generally motivated just by the idea that they can 'impress' someone, nor do they tend to suddenly write people off.

    You sound like a classic INT to me.
