    I'm just saying that it's more likely you're an ambivert than an extrovert or introvert.

    Down with the snark, I didn't discount the possibility. Just pointing out how I thought I was introverted. I get the feeling you thought I was some newbie who had no idea.

    You've been kinda undecided about E/I in the past too, haven't you?

    I wasn't trying to be snarky, you know. I didn't think you were some noob. You have over a 1000 posts on here; I hope you know a thing or two about MBTI! I was just trying to bring in some plausibility. You seem like you're trying to decide whether you're an extrovert or introvert, and I'm trying to say that you may not have to if you're in the middle like most people.

    Lol, maybe I was projecting. I feel like a bit of a dumb arse, having never seriously questioned it before.

    So, how is this ambivert thing supposed to work? Are you actually supposed to be able to shift function preferences? Is it something supported by MBTI theory?

    No, it's not supported by MBTI, seeing as it is based on dichotomies. As for functions, well, I'm not actually tweaking those. My function order was right in front of me.

    From wikipaedia:
    [edit]Ambiversion
    Although many people view being introverted or extraverted as a question with only two possible answers, most contemporary trait theories (e.g. the Big Five) measure levels of extraversion-introversion as part of a single, continuous dimension of personality, with some scores near one end, and others near the half-way mark.[9] Ambiversion is a term used to describe people who fall more or less directly in the middle and exhibit tendencies of both groups.[4][10] An ambivert is normally comfortable with groups and enjoys social interaction, but also relishes time alone and away from the crowd.

    Yup. Some still consider me INFP on here (and sometimes even INFJ, but that's another matter), and I do relate to both descriptions depending on my mood and the situation in front of me. I even at some point showed both descriptions to my INTJ ( who has no interest in MBTI whatsoever), and left out the types, and he went: those are both you, just on a different day or even a different moment

    I find I just use different NF types in different situations, to adjust. Though my overall preference seems to be (when nobody is putting any pressure on me, I'll go for ENFP). Being around people though triggers INFJ, especially in large groups and if I don't have the energy for it, INFP. Given it's a group I know well and is relatively small in size, I'll go for ENFP. When a group is on a mission and its floundering about, it costs me all the energy I have, but I try to go ENFJ. Usually, I'm not nearly as smooth as an ENFJ naturally is though. I use INFP to recuperate and process stuff, and write.

    Among all extroverts group, does it only apply to ENFP?
