    Default Can anyone help me settle whether i'm INFJ or INFP?

    I have only gotten INFJ as my result in both a sketchy as well as an "official" test. and I relate to the description of INFJ more than INFP I think....

    but I can relate to some of the INFP descriptions too..

    I just don't want to be someone who "wants to be INFJ" but is actually unknowingly INFP... which apparently is a thing? Not that theres anything wrong with being INFP, of course. I just can't tell if I actually am a judging type, or if I just answer the questions that way because I would like to be, or something?

    also, in the "official" test, my judging preference was only "slight"

    The one thing that makes me pretty confident that INFJ fits better, is that I am convinced I am an extroverted feeler.

    for instance this: "Fe seeks social connections and creates harmonious interactions through polite, considerate, and appropriate behavior. Fe responds to the explicit (and implicit) wants of others, and may even create an internal conflict between the subject’s own needs and the desire to meet the needs of others."

    rings incredibly true for me. But, I don't know, I'm semi new to this. Any thoughts?

    You're not giving us much to work with?

    But you have a Sorrows of Young Werther quote in your sig, which SCREAMS type 4/INFP, so I'll go with that. : P

    So you seem to at least have a basic understanding of the functions. Just continue reading as much as you can about them.

    Try to determine which is your inferior first.

    Point of advice: don't ask members of a typology forum to type you.

    If you ever find yourself saying something out of character just to make the other person's day wonderful, then very likely, you're an Infj. In most cases, an Infp won't say anything out of character, in fear of feeling or being seen as fake, or even, believing in certain things too strongly.

    On the other hand, if you believe the world revolves around you, then there's not a shadow of a doubt you're an Infp

    if a red pill was unavailable, would you pick the blue pill or the purple pill?

    Well, in that case, lets skip the pills altogether and go straight to the moonshine!

    Just kidding. I knew where you were coming from, but had an impish moment and just wanted to mess around. What can I say? Happens to the best of us sometimes. Doesn't it?

    always glad to bring that out

    admittedly my rational was impish to begin with:


    ... i was really surprised that following that, a rep comment convo with an INFJ ended up doing just that.
    ...and while i didn't get to test it with an INFP, but for what it's worth, an ISFP said she would take both.
