    Default For those that are unsure of their INFPness or if there some 'other' type...

    I'm a INFP - The sociopath

    I think I'm either a 4w5, 4w3, 6w5 or 9w1. Most possibly 4w5.

    Isn't Socionics INFP different to MBTI INFP? I noticed it when I saw they said Ni would be the first function of an INFP, which is actually INFJ.

    The description however seemed very fitting to my own personality. There were a few things which were a bit off (like for example the omnipresent idea that all INFPs are great artists and poets, which I am not really), but for a such long and detailed description, it was quite fitting all in all. But that won't make me now a MBTI INFJ, or?

    well that's one of the best INFP titles i have seen.

    it continues to surprise me how INFPs can both truly love and truly hate humanity as a whole.

    i've been reading about this lately, it's sort of confusing. you're right, MBTI INFP is usually socionics INFj / IEI (intuitive ethical introtrim) because socionics codes j/p based on your dominant function, rather than your extraverted function. but socionics has different definitions for the functions, too, so an MBTI INFP could end up being an INFp in socionics if you associate more with socionics Ni-Fe than INFj Ne-Fi.

    here's the INFj equivalent type description.

    Ya. I think socionics INFP goes Ni Fe Si Te, BUT I believe their description of the functions is also different.

    Why are you incapable in understanding that this was only intended for INFPs?

    Yeah, I thought INFp mbti = INFj Socionics, but apparently there's nothing like that. . INFPs can end up as ISFPs, ISTJs, ISFJs, ENTPs , & ENFPs,etc in Socionics apparently.

    And other things that I've noticed, are that Socionics and MBTI both mark Adam Sandler, Kevin Coster & Julia Roberts as INFPs. So it's possible to be the same type in both MBTI and Socionics. Anyway... I got INFp in Socionics and MBTI.

    Are you saying mbti infp can end up as all those other socionics types? I am really intersted in this, its always confused me. I thought that only introverts in MBTI can change in socionics, extroverts always stay the same. ENFP=ENFp, ESTJ=ESTj, but INFP = INF p/j ISTJ = IST p/j. I posted a thread on it a while back, and was told that some ENFP's can type as ESFP's in socionics? I understand socionics is VERY different system than mbti, and changes the words and descriptions, so there is no clear way of moving through systems.

    However, if a socionics INFP leads with Ni- I really don't get it....
    Socionics description of Ni
    1) Ni is responsible for the estimation of the passage of time, the understanding of a course of processes in time, and forecasting;
    2) Ni understand how things change and evolve over time and throughout history;
    3) Ni is acutely aware of events that are occurring outside of the immediate perception of the moment, and sees events as part of a continuous flow;
    4) Ni perceives the inevitability of future events and notices ties to the past.

    I've also read biggest diff in socionics between INFP and ENFP is that INFP's extrovert feeling, ENFP's feeling introverted.. which is interesting because INFP's in mbti dom with Fi. So again, I think the words are somehow used differently.

    Lol. Actually I agree with this statement. Unfortunately our "pair" is delegated to 4th position Te... So it's kinda like half of a pair....

    Good thing I r chick.
