    Default NFs: Do you cleanly fit in your MBTI type?

    Hi all,

    I will add a poll in just a sec.

    What I would like to understand is the percentage of folks who feel they very cleanly fit into a specific MBTI type and the percentage of folks who feel they border on mutliple types.

    I will post this same type of thread in each section.

    Thanks!

    I cross between INFP and ENFP, so no. I don't cleanly fit in.

    It seems as though my Fi and Ne are tied.
    Is it that by its indefiniteness it shadows forth the heartless voids and immensities of the universe, and thus stabs us from behind with the thought of annihilation, when beholding the white depths of the milky way?

    I am a well expressed INFP and have learned a lot of coping skills.

    Nope. I'm part INTJ, part INFP. I relate to things from both profiles. But I am an expressed INFP, so INFP it is.

    I put yes, but only because I don't take the system so literally that I expect a perfect match.

    My Ni scores only slightly lower than Ne, which can cause me to have an INFJ flavor to some of my communications. Combine that with a Te that I lean on a bit too much, and I can occasionally come across as INTJish in real life.

    However, I always end up reverting back to a state of a glorious, beautiful, and modest INFP.

    For the most part yes.

    This is how I feel also.

    I think the point of MBTI is to find the profile you relate to most and the function order closest to your own, to help understand yourself and others and grow from that understanding. Nothing is a perfect match, as the type profiles are basically stereotypes.

    I can test INTP or INFJ, and I score pretty high with Ti and Ni on cognitive function tests. However, INFP as a whole suits me best, and I score Fi Ne as the highest consistently.

    Pretty typical INFP here. Though I can pass quite well for an INTP if someone isn't looking to scrutinizingly [sp]. Its my understanding that that holds for many INFP's though.

    Nope. I can be all over the place, depending on my fickle moods. I can't seem to shed my I, though. Well, haven't even tried it. But I refuse to be pigeonholed anyway, so no worries

    I voted yes. Obviously not a perfect match, but I'm not between any other types.
