    Now that I have realized the discrepancy of my previous post. I find MBTI profiles to be pretty wrong. They should not be used as a type identifier. IF anything, learning function order and what each function IS is the only real way to type yourself. If anything, you could scrap MBTI and just use functions just fine. It's better to know the functions before looking up MBTI anyway.

    There's this idea that INFJs are sooo "rare", being the "rarest type", that no one wants to believe anyone actually is one. INFJs seem reluctant to allow another into their exclusive little club, and they try to send their rejects over to us INFPs (as if INFPs are sooo much more common).

    I think the discrepancy between the number of INFJs represented on message boards and the supposed rarity of the type might be explained by the fact that we love being understood, and we often express ourselves best through writing. Message boards (especially those that draw a mostly intelligent crowd) are the perfect way to relate for INFJs.

    It will be forever impossible to be infj or any other type, no matter how good you are at it. And thats only because a definition will never be the same as a human. The definition has always to work within its definition, the boundaries of the humans on the other hand are endless.

    I've never bought into this whole Ni Ne Fe Pq Rn stuff. MBTI is a simple tool that works really well if you're not trying to squeeze too many answers out of it. People attempting to attribute every single little personality trait to a "function" in the MBTI seem to be straining the system beyond its abilities. Equally bad are people who rigidly believe that the different types must adhere to the definitions verbatim, or they couldn't possibly be X or Y or Z.

    MBTI is a starting line for understanding people, not the finish line. Nobody is 100% like their MBTI profile. If we were, human interaction would be much simpler.

    Agreed on this. Introverts, in particular, are going to be over-represented on the Internet in general. It's a public forum that doesn't require "real" interaction, so Introverts can actually socialize AND recharge at the same time. I lurve the Internet. Perhaps a bit too much.

    Not to mention INFJs are mostly homebodies so it's not likely you'd meet them outside of their social circle. They're at home a lot, doing INFJ stuff.

    This stuff is still new to me, I am still learning about the MBTI , never heard about it until about a year ago, everything I've read about INFJ's ..err...almost everything is correct, I think a person's Enneagram means just as much to a person if not maybe more than a person's MBTI , just my 2 cents worth.

    I hear what you're saying, Sarcasticus. I go out a lot...but when I get home (unless I'm uncharacteristically bored), I breathe a sigh of relief. :P I tend to go out to collect bits of "interesting", then come back home (or somewhere quiet) to chew on it. :P
