    I think a lot of INFP's can mistest as INTP's. Especially if you take the test at school or work, or respond to gender expectations. And a lot of times T questions can ask if you "think" about things, and as INFP's we definitely "think" about things a lot, but usually as some sort of pondering, speculative, contemplative Fi, not as some "I want to make a complete coherent internally consistent logic structure" ala mathematics that Ti does. Also, we come to a decision based upon values and then "think" about how to implement it, and THAT thinking might be much more T, and I believe Te at that.

    It's all about whether you are a Fi dom or a Ti dom. There's been a recent thread here in the NF idylic about INTP INFP differences. Not surprisingly, INFP's are much more F[i], and INTP's are much more NT.

    They do, but Te is usually the least developed primary fuction for an INFP.

    For an INFP, Ti is usually very messy and for an INTP, Fi is not to be trusted if it can't be rationalized.

    I've found INTPs can be full of feeling and emotion, but they don't trust their feelings if they can't be justified with logical reasoning. I like to think that INTPs would be much more passionate, and even happier, if the trusted their Fi instead of trying so hard to kill it.

    I may be seaching for proof that there are INTPs with developed Fi...

    Dear me, that happened the first time I encountered Mbti *the test was over-simplified*, but I didn't cry about it. I just sat there perplexed, thinking "This doesn't make sense, clearly the system isn't effective and must be based on false premises."

    *changes type forthwith!*

    i consider myself a mix of both, why would you have to choose?

    seriously though, when looking at descriptions for both, it always seems like half of the things from each applies to me

    so for now, i am both


    edit: unless you disagree of course

    Often a star was waiting for you to notice it. A wave rolled toward you out of the distant past, or as you walked under an open window, a violin yielded itself to your hearing. All this was mission. But could you accomplish it? (Rilke)
