    Default Getting more INTP-ish. HELP!

    It's happening. In all honesty, I think MBTI is a load of shit when it comes to a longitudinal way of thinking (e.g. a person's entire life); however, I think the functions it proposes have some ground to stand on. So, the entire notion of the four letter combo as a defining personality type is, as I see it, rubbish.

    ...However, I'm experiencing change (again; I'm pretty sure I was very "INFP" as a teen; note: I dislike everything about myself in this era of my life).

    I'm using Ni and Ne at almost an equal rate, with a lot of Ti, Fe, and Se.

    What the hell does this make me? Looks closer to "INTP."

    Do I start clicking "NT Rationale" first instead of that whiny NF forum?

    Are you after your own truth, or someone else's idea of what your truth should be?
    Create your own type.
    To hell with the conformists.

    Sooner or later, everybody will succumb.

    Yeah, you're screwed. Repent now and maybe you'll get the chance to be an ENTP next!

    Stick with function analysis rather than trying to assign yourself a four-letter type, you'll probably describe yourself more accurately since your makeup is fairly unique.

    There's a number of INFJs who like INTPs anyhoo, and some who even can "talk the talk." (Check out Toonia, she's got great Ti.)

    “Pleasure to me is wonder—the unexplored, the unexpected, the thing that is hidden and the changeless thing that lurks behind superficial mutability. To trace the remote in the immediate; the eternal in the ephemeral; the past in the present; the infinite in the finite; these are to me the springs of delight and beauty.” ~ H.P. Lovecraft

    Yeah, great point. Function analysis is a very interesting thing indeed.

    Haha. Yes.

    But I've been studying the multiverse theory which states that if anything is possible, it probably exists in another universe. So the Biblical God could exist somewhere.

    ...Actually, no. I doubt that.
