    Default former ENFP becoming INTP? maturing?

    I don't feel like an ENFP anymore at all... I wish I did. I fell this void of enthusiasm has been replaced with this reality check, and also desire to do something practical and of value. Also I don't like crowds, being the center of attention, I am Ne, I think, but I feel more anger then passion for things.

    I don't feel the need to spread the news around, like I used to... Like ENFP, when I first tested I was borderline ENTP, on Kiersey. It was one point away from F. I recently took the test again and At first I took the test again got INTP- this time. ?

    I am not brilliantly intelligent, if anything I have a weak T. But it is there.
    Does this even matter anyway?

    Not INTP. STJ maybe.

    How long have you felt this way? Might it be a phase, or more of a steady trend? I always come back to INTJ, but I've tested different combinations at unusual times in my life. I know some people don't like to use X's, but it's certainly possible that your F and T are pretty equally balanced.

    You sound like a depressed ENFP.

    this is true, but i feel more detached from my emotions. I don't care as much, don't cry, don't really feel anything, some pleasure, some pain, but mostly noise and static. Not the highs and lows I'm used to as an ENFP, this has been going on since 6 months now. Just feel focused, and feel next to no emotion, with some anger at times.

    prob just situational due to life circumstances

    people dont just change type as much as they think. pros say that you need to have some really heavy traumatic situation, being a kid and being molested for years or stuff like that. personally i think you need to atleast partly lose your mind to find a new one.

    depending on situation people can use functions that they dont normally use, for example enfp using Ti Ne instead Ne Fi, but that doesent mean that you have changed type because mbti measures how your thinking works when in idea situation. those tests just measure the functions that you use at the moment, so if you are in stressful life situation it will most likely give false results.

    This. Weak T is NOT characteristic of INTPs--they are Ti dominant.
    If you could be anything you want, I bet you'd be disappointed--am I right?
