I've tested INFJ always. I strongly identify with the type. I decided to take the test on personalitypage.com (since I admired the little graphs everyone had in their signatures). I took it based on what I would do on a "bad" day (not talking to people, feeling tired, pessimistic, sad, haunted by the past) vs. a "good" (still introverted, but outgoing, more willing to try new things, higher energy).
Here's the funny thing -- my good day test result was INFJ and my bad day resulted in INFP. Not saying there is anything remotely wrong with INFP. At first I thought this might relate to the shadow, but INFP doesn't really embody that. Plus, I'm much too technical to be an INFP (I think - I don't have a good understanding of this type). But I am more likely to write/be creative/be verbally awkward in my "down" days. And programming code is much harder to wade through on "bad" days (though that could just be my tiredness). But it's like my inhibitions wane and writing becomes much easier.
Has anyone else had this type-switching experience? Or is there an older thread about this? Or could it be that we function just function very differently at different times? So many of the test questions are dependent on behaviors that are not consistent -- what do you all think of that?
Thank you all!
