    They'd probably be able to use it better, but it would still be used like an inferior function.

    If I'm not mistaken, many INFPs test differently and sometimes take a while to settle on the type. I'm thinking the unflattering history of INFP profiles is one culprit. Another would be the ability of INFPs to float around into different emotional and persona states depending on their environment or the people around them- they're like a sponge/emotional chameleon and like to relate to people by meeting them at their level.

    That said, I think you're simply an INxP, or slightly swayed to INFP. INTP and INFP both have rigorous value and ethical systems, and they both appreciate aesthetic beauty, as you mentioned. However, you may be able to figure out which type is stronger if you consider where these values come from. Do you hold them dear because they are quite obviously the morally correct and just way of operating, or do you value them because you are a humanist and you'd like to give everyone an equal chance, as suffering is not a pleasant thing for anyone?

But I will see no problem exempting someone if I feel it is unnecessary for them to suffer as a result. Crap, explaining this with the right details could turn into a whole seperate thread. I have no problem breaking societal or ethical rules for individuals. Most of the time I am frustrated with people because they never want to understand why people do things, but that is what helps bring the most peace and happiness to the world. Not blanket-rules that allow the majority of people to be cold simple thinking lazy people. It's hard to explain, but sometimes I wonder if I developed my thinking side so much because I wanted so badly to make it on my own, be able to protect myself, and be able to explain to people the greater truths behind human emotions and motivations so that people can work on being more understanding and make better educated decisions with one another. But this is all very confusing for me because I love Mathematics, computers, engineering, and physics. But I love psychology and understanding people more, it's just that I have deep emotional connections to things and if I were in psychology or dealing with helping people I would crazy from my emotions. See it's so confusing because I also love engineering. I think ideally I would prefer to be an electrical engineer and feel useful creating and fixing machines and circuits and have a couple people I can explore life with intimately. But isn't that an INTP desire? *Bangs head on wall*
    This entire paragraph screams Fi in a good way. You've hit the Fi nail on the head quite a few times.

    I don't see any reason why an INFP could not enjoy and be good at engineering. Saving the world is not the only INFP occupation .

    Yeah sticks I don't even understand how you can think you're a Ti dom.

    Here is a little quiz that says some basic traits that Ti types have-

    Keep in mind that they do this stuff FOR FUN. Especially INTPs.

    This is for Fi- http://www.typologycentral.com/forum...ou-use-fi.html

    I really hope you have a good bullshit filter, because some of those things for Fi are just stereotypical.

    If you're a 9 on the enneagram like I am, then your personality test results would be expected to be screwed up. Eventually, with enough life experience, you will see yourself more clearly and not need a test to tell you what you are.

    For example, it took me a long time (and some painful mistakes) to figure out that I'm neither an INFJ nor an ENTP or whatever; I just respect the other types a lot, and so my test results were messed up by my efforts to be more like them (though I could never be mistaken for an S, no matter how much I tried). Now I finally know and like who I really I am: I'm a kaleidoscope, and I'm cool with that.

    I have the same 'problem'. :steam:
    On cognitive tests i always get Ne > Fi.
    I, N, P almost always close to 100%. F/T is 50/50 most of the time.
    Clearly introverted, yet not dominate Fi user *Sigh*

    Purplesunset: An INTP prefer Fe > Fi. Try figuring out if you prefer Fi>Fe and Te>Ti or the other way around. Fe is totally alien to me.
    And would you consider yourself more of an introverted ENFP, rather than INFP?

    I think a lot of the INFP-profiles suffer from sometimes confusing Fi with Fe.
    Most INFP's does not strike me as emotional as its rumor(outwardly at least)*, which can lead you to think you are more T (and maybe more N) than you actually are.

    *(Except on INFPgc, but then again, i do not think INTPc is representative for the average INTP either.
    INTPc seem to attract strong/expressive Dom-Ti and INFPgc - Dom-Fi.
    The profiles are often written with strong preferences in mind, and people who feel that the profile are exactly like them feel strong validation and identification and will maybe more often seek a forum or community dedicated solely to that type, more so than more 'balanced' types or types with weaker preferences. So do not use those forums as examples on type)

    You can probably get several 'subtypes' from various strength of preference in each function etc, i wouldn't trust the online profiles too much.

    Anyway, i would not invest too much time on function order and MBTI if it does not seem to fit you. It is easy to force yourself into some type because you think that the MBTI is proven and valid, it is not. A sometimes useful(but flawed) framework only

    I think many tests gauge feeling by Fe standards, which also makes a lot of INFPs tend to test INTP (including me).
