    You're an INFP. An INTP is primarly a truth seeker. It's not that INTPs don't take peoples feelings into consideration. It's just that in the greater scheme of things it's more important to state the truth. People will have to deal with emotional difficulties on their own. It's not the responsibility of the INTP.

    I'm at about 7 or 8. Plus that damn somatotype guy everyone chased off awhile back typed me as INTP. So 9. I'm just about to smack the wall.

    In these groups, notice that Directive/Informative ends up being distinguished by T/F for the S's, and J/P for the N's.
    Where on the S side, all T's end up as directive while F is informative, on the N side, the P makes the type informative even if it is a T. Informative is people(rather than task)-oriented and thus softer and a bit more accepting of others. This is often associated with F behavior, so then NTP's might seem a bit like F's in that respect, adding to the ambiguity a lot of NP seekers often face.
    I also don't know if this classification is wholly accurate. I am an ENJ so "in charge" and that makes me task oriented by definition but in life I am people oriented. Especially good at being task and people oriented ha? (Is that a possiblity.. )

    For what it's worth, I tested INTP in high school and early college.

    I test somewhat evenly on the E/I spectrum, and am most firmly N. I'm also close to the F/T divide as well, but consistently test F. While I am very J in that I like to have firm, detailed plans at least a week in advance, I'm capable of being spontaneous. As long as it's planned spontaneity.

    (What's "new" in this is the way I use it to express the types as social/leadership temperament blends).
    What if someone does all the 4 directions simultaneously? Or just chills, and do non. Why do you focus on the preference? Do most people follow their preference? What if they don't?

    I see your point. And after those 4 directions it's a good explanation. But it's simplified to such a degree that it is close to useless imo. And expecting someone to follow such a pattern is prone to failure. Creating more communication difficulties then if one keeps an open mind.

    You're probably thinking of the extroversion as "people" focus.
    But affective temperament is based on both "expressiveness" and "responsiveness". The first one tells us how we approach others, or what we "SAY" we want from interaction. The other tells us how we "respond" to others, or what we REALLY want. Hence, the true "people vs task" orientation lies in informing/directing rather than E/I.

    People might do all four, but still, type indicates that there is one they actually prefer (however slightly).

    Well, I've taken all of your opinions into account, did some more research, and took the test ten/twenty-fold more, lol, and I have come to conclusion of being an "INTP." I spent hours trying to figure this out and taking the tests one question at a time, trying to apply it to different scenarios, and I got this:

    Myers Briggs Test Result #I've lost count

    Introverted (I) 72.73% Extroverted (E) 27.27%
    Intuitive (N) 75.76% Sensing (S) 24.24%
    Thinking (T) 55.56% Feeling (F) 44.44%
    Perceiving (P) 62.86% Judging (J) 37.14%

    As one can see, the percentages of my T over F is very narrow which might explain the discrepancies.

    Throughout childhood, I've been pretty INFP (at least imo), but as I've gotten older and I've come to appreciate objective reasoning and consistency over emotions, which I do have serious trouble emitting and empathizing. I'm barely into young adulthood, so I suppose my personality is still changing, but after reading many threads, watching videos, and doing private research on INTPs/FPs/everybody else, I really relate more to the NTs (whom I had always thought were boring vs. NFs).

    Thanks for the replies.

    I can identify with that last part as well, which made it difficult for me to completely figure as well for awhile.

    Since I believe NT is a temperament known in another system as "Choleric in Control" (http://www.pastoral-counseling-cente...ic-control.htm), it seems to be more of something that becomes more apparent when we get older and naturally independent (and more able to meet our need for mastery). So our objective reasoning preference comes to the front.
    When we are younger it is our sociability temperament (IP) or Interaction Style (INP) that is more evident (Likely one of these:
