    the OP suggested many INFPs mistype themselves as INFJs to feel more superior, unique, special, etc.

    I wasn't aware anyone said you wanted to be an INFJ.

    I haven't met a single INFP who wishes to be INFJ. I have noticed some confusion on this forum, even in myself, but it doesn't seem these people necessarily wish to be a J over P

    Put briefly, you think too much. My quote is in relation to introverted irrationals, Si and Ni types, who have a fair talent to 'float' through existence unquestioningly.

    Of course, the problem I've identified with this is that this is a forum, where literal expressions of thought are nearly the primary source of intellectual convection. But still, I get a feeling...

    I'm a p, cuz my lead function is defiently Fi but I am punctual, detail oriented, rigid and I've been this way my whole life. It stresses me out when people make me late.there's another word that i can't think of.

    It's not only the INFPs that are mistyping as INFJs, it's everyone.

    I'd say everyone thinks the same amount. Their brains just process and operate differently. How would you type me?

    The whole thing about INFPs being procrastinators that can't show up on time seems to be a vastly overblown stereotype.

    Have you ever considered that you might be on the autism spectrum, perhaps in the extremely high-functioning end? Please don't take this as an insult. I think it's a lot more common than people realize. Please please don't take that as an insult.

    I didn't realize this.

    It seems like there'd be more INTJs or maybe even the odd SJ mistyping as INFJ than INFPs mistyping as J.

    When did you determine you were an INFJ, by the way? I noticed you were an INFP when I first joined. Just curious what made up/changed your mind?

    I've considered this, but also, I was tested for it around 3 and I was deemed neurotypical. Of course this was like 89/90, I've considered it in part because, and I could be getting this confused with something else. I tend to make a lot of social mistakes, and not realize it til someone points it out. And unless someone is straight forward, I'll have absolutely no clue they're mad at me. But I mean, at this point in my life, I don't see a difference it would make

    @Lyedecker - I don't think I agree. For example, with Se, "When he has sensed, everything essential has been said and done." It is easy to conceptualize this type of person. When the personality is most pronounced, it is that of complete physical tangibility with little room to err objectively, they prefer experience to logic. Rationality has little room in this paradigm, but you shouldn't mistake that for a lesser form of intelligence. It likely manifests itself as a "wait and see" mentality in regards to questions without immediate answers, as opposed to a habitual projection of past experience. It gets a little weird with Si and Ni, but the concept somewhat remains the same.

    I think you've probably got a fair deal of Fi/Ne going on. You remind me of some others that have tested/self identify with Fi, at the very least.

    Okay,

    So I thought I was an INFP for the longest time, thought we were caring loving and sensitive, but I never saw myself be easily fitted in with the group. I was always the outcast and few people commented they wanted to be like me. I think I have some INFP qualities in me, but I am overall INFJ. Science and other things with more objective truths appealed to me more and sometimes I am not (which I am jealous of) is not someone just to connect and fall in and help with someone. I feel like I need a lot of time to get along with people, even though I spill my personal info guts out sometimes. Overall love fashion and still check out what great clothes what would fit on me and what girls could wear. (I'm a dude) and I can get really annoyed when things have been planned out at the longest time and nobody tells me that it's a sudden change.

    I think the "3w2 part in me" can confuse people that I am an INFP. I can get people to laugh by acting like an ESTP or I just try to act cute and I have doe eyes in my physical appearance. Maybe I am just an INFJ dominant/INFP hybrid. I still don't get on time to things but if I really think it is important I will get there early. I don't like having an organized desk, but when I get mad. I clean haha.

    Edit: What's been in "" has been changed. Sorry.
