    I could think of worse, for example... :P

    Eh I hope no one takes offense to that. I wouldn't take offense to people saying that they don't want to be an ENFP.

    Which is weird because in each encounter with people I've typed as INFP, they have been surprisingly outspoken and unapologetic about their voices. I still wonder why that stereotype is going strong.

    the stereotype comes from moments that are only rare and usually random at best, But since those seem so different than what is considered normal, they are what stand out.

    I want to be ESTP or ENTJ, but sadly I was typed as ENFP. I guess it's just nature's way of fucking us.

    If you don't agree about my MBTI type, you can complain about it here. I've had plenty of people telling me I'm something else, in my reputation box. That's annoying.

    i was thinking and maybe it's just that we can't change, really... even if we wanted to be another type quite badly, we're still understanding what that other type is through the perspective of our own type.

    like, i see Js as more responsible, more organized, more consistent, and i idealize them because it looks like if you have all your stuff together, then you should be allowed to let go and have fun. but that's a rather P motive, isn't it... like that being on top of things isn't for the sake of being on top of things, it's just for the sake of easier escape access. and i think i'd like to be okay with feeling "trapped" into things, but i guess maybe Js feel an equal and opposite discomfort when things are quite uncertain.

    i think wolfy made an excellent point too. much easier to refine and add to your pre-existing skill set, as opposed to starting over at square 1.

    also: INFP stereotypes are consistently dumb. so is any description of an ENFP that implies that we are extremely social and totally illogical.

    INFP stereotypes are quite weird! In response:

    • I can use logic; in fact, I'm quite good at things like algebra. However, I just don't like using hard logic to make all my decisions - it doesn't feel right
    • I can often be hurt by insults, but it depends who says them. Insults or jibes from loved ones are the ones I find the most hurtful
    • an enraged INFP can be deadly!


    I frequently hate being an INFP, but then love it again. I feel like I am often obliged to exist on other people's terms (the world is not sympathetic to an INFP) but revel in it when it is bent to my will, or when things are played out on my terms. I've been told that I have great insight in literature, poetry, the human condition etc. and people will say that I seem to be a person who has thought long and hard about my belief. This is true and is a quality I like in myself.

    That being said, I do wish I was another type at times, if only to avoid the constant barrage of inanity and stupidity I see before me in the exterior world. I reckon that if I were another type, I wouldn't see the world as a place full of cruelty, selfishness and torpor. However, I realise that I would subsequently lose the "softness" which I think is lacking in so many others, but is so prevalent in my own personality.

    Who would be an INFP? :confused:
    That girls are raped, that two boys knife a third,
    Were axioms to him, who'd never heard
    Of any world where promises were kept,
    Or one could weep because another wept.

    Don't mind and quite like being my type whether it's eNTJ or INTJ (most likely eNTJ due to Te-dom). But for a change, it would be fun to be an ESTP for a limited time as a comparative.

    I think it's more what you're more comfortable being, and what functions give you the most comfort. (For example, I would not be as comfortable using Fi than I would with Ti)

    Even though I may or may not want to be an ENTJ, I'd have to work at it...which I feel like is a waste of time. I'm fine with who I am.

    There is a genetic component to behavior; this has been established through monozygotic twin studies. Traits like intelligence, psychopathy, empathy, aggression, and inhibition have biological correlates, with the last two having specific genes tied identified for them, MAOA gene has been a heavily studies in this regard.
