    Yeah, really interesting actually. A bit difficult separating factors, as usual, but, well. I used to think I had AS when I was younger because I'm so socially inhibited, but now I'm pretty sure I'm not.

    My brother, on the other hand does have a diagnosis, and I do admit to sharing a lot of his features. I think he is probably an ENFJ - at least he's more E than I am, but that doesn't really say much... He did puzzle me a bit when I tried to type my family, so it's good to have some confirmation that I may very well be right about him being an NF.

    I don't know to what extent it is 'my own' aspieness, or a result of growing up in a rather aspie-heavy environment, but I have definitely had a lot of the ambivalence/conflicts between a more rational and a more emotional side. In fact, it was only when I got into MBTI that it occurred to me how emotional I really was - something I had sort of repressed growing up.

    I guess one thing to remember, as usual, is that there is a difference between preference and ability: I am very good at rational thought, but it is not my 'default mode', and I'm not very good at social interaction, but I wish I was because my mind is always centred on other people.

    ooo this sounds very interesting... Seeing as my latest theory is that I'm ('mildly') bipolar (and this one seems a bit more corroborated by what people sometimes refer to as the 'outside' or 'real' world)

    I'm new here. I'm an Aspie and an INFJ. I got the diagnosis 5 years ago. I've taken many test over the past week and every single one of them came out with the INFJ result. I can tell you this, I hate change and I'm pretty good at picking up on emotions from other people through like a vibe rather than visual cue. I'm no good at visual cues, it's more like a spidey sense that I get. I feel it in my skin and I get the chills. It's weird and then my mood will change to whatever the mood of the atmosphere is. I'm also extremely expressive and my hands and face are constantly changing. I don't smile a lot though. I hate eye contact too so my eyes are always fluttering around. I don't like most people and prefer to talk animals because they don't judge my weirdness. I rarely stick up for myself. I usually wait till I'm alone to have a reaction to things because I'm too afraid of offending others or making them mad. When I do have an Aspie meltdown it's usually because of a build-up of everything that I've tried to suppress and I explode and really scare the people around me. That's awkward.

    It's cool reading these personal accounts.

    F simply means you prioritize on value-based judgments... so I don't see inherent contradiction. Autism, as far as I understand it, is primarily a disorder of communication and interaction - internal/external exchange - whereas cognitive functions are entirely internal.

    I mean, heck, I'm pretty socially oblivious sometimes and I'm a relatively neurotypical NF.

    I'm an Aspie INFP. I have all the usual autistic sensory issues and problems with understanding non-verbal communication. But I am definitely an Fi-Dom. I'm working on becoming a psychotherapist so I can help other people on the spectrum.

    When I was a kid I was known as the boy who cried because they cut down a big pine tree in the schoolyard...

    Your brother is awesome! I find that very encouraging for my dream to be a psychologist helping other autistic people.

    INFJs have inferior Se... I have awareness of my physical environment but little ability to manipulate it... and I am sensitive to sensory overload...

    I don't have Aspergers afaik...

    This movie is about Aspergers:

    Aspies cannot recognize Fe... but do they have awareness of their feelings...i.e. Fi...?

    A high Se would give people the ability to not be fazed with high sensory overload... A Se-inf would OTOH mean that the person can register Se data but is sensitive\allergic to it in high doses...

    interesting, I'm not aspie or anything, but I stuck at visual clues, and pick up on vibes like a gut feeling about someone or a situation, but if I look at a pic or was asked what the person was feeling by their expression I couldn't. I have to be physically present.

    that is all

    i dunno what else to say so

    I've also realized the neurotypicals can have aspie traits.

    I am aspie and pretty sure I am IEI, but I'm not sure about my MBTI type, since I do not identify very much with the descriptions of the MBTI's Feeling Types...
