    Correlation, but not causation. 5 INFPs are entirely possible, though uncommon. Along with 4 INTs.

    Right, which is why I said "usually." I never said it was impossible (I already know this, thanks). I am just asking her, given the pretty strong tendency for INTPs to be 5s, how she knows she is INFP. Not that she isn't, or that I'm insinuating that she isn't.

    I'm just curious about her specific case because I have been confused over whether I am INTP or INFP, and I thought that my enneagram 5 was pretty strong evidence in favor of INTP.

    Right. Woops.

    There no mistaking that Fi, and I'm a strong empathic. Officially I'm INXP, (Via professional testing). If it helps my 4 wing is almost equal. I think Geoff posted some where an excellent theory on why so many INFPs and INTP test boarderline, it wouldn't surprise me if that theory translated well into ennegram as well, at least in my case.
    Analytical is the first word people used to describe me, both professionally and personally (then it's sensitive, but that's a whole other story).
    Currently submerged under an avalanche of books and paper work. I may come back up for air from time to time.

    What's Fi to you such that you can't mistake it? Sorry if this is derailing the thread a bit. I appreciate any help you can give me here .

    I'm pretty much exactly the same.

    I'm certain I am a INFP yet I have a strong NT side for some reason, and as such I always test and identify with 5w4.

    I use FI and NE a lot, but my TI is also rather developed, probably from living with my INTP partner for 5 years haha. My use of FI is astronomical though, I use it far too much in my daily life. Everything I weigh against my values, I'm constantly searching for my own meaning and the meaning of everything else and I analyse pretty much everything, but not in a logical way

    I dunno, I'm not sure how to explain how I use FI. I spend too much of my time just day dreaming hehe.

    Actually, now I'm confused.

    And the fact I am confused and doubting my FI use makes me a INFP, yaaaaay!

    Well, keep in mind that logic can be one of Fi's values. And combined with a developed Te, can make an INFP look like an INTP. Doesn't happen as often in reverse. Fi and Ti are pretty similiar. They're highly similiar processes, but they utilize different information.

    And stuff.

    Indeed, that's the conclusion I came to.

    My partner thinks a lot differently to me, and he's a text-book INTP. He thinks about things much more objectively than I, but we both have our own brand of logic, or the way we interpret things. NT's are not always amazingly logical when they start arguing within fallacies, but I think that's more unhealthy NT behaviour, possibly?

    In terms of values, fairness is perhaps my biggest value. I don't care about what people feel about things if they're being unfair, fairness first, compassion second in my book. You find a lot of tests online where that is a NT trait, and not a NF one, but it's one of my values, dammit!
