Is there any chance that people can be between types or have some tendencies from a different type because if so I would like to say that I am mostly a p with some j tendencies. (I am going with the most popular characteristics that I have and most easily identifiable and not a slippery type situation): I love gathering knowledge for no practical reason especially on the subject of god and religion. In my classes for example I am mostly known for pulling out statistics that have nothing to do with the subject we are talking about. I keep myself well away from people and have trouble gaining friends because I cant look on someone as a friend until they make it past my parameters and my walls I have built. I have trouble engaging in social interactions ie at a family gathering you are most likely to see me with my nose in a book. Hard for me to look at things from a different perspective ie My sister is making food I analyze it and see that she is adding to much pepper she doesnt listen so I go and take the pepper out she then gets angry I then try to rationalize it with her but it doesnt work. Whenever I go into new places or am walking I put people on a risk factor based usually on there company attire and there general attitude, I also put myself into situations in my mind and try to come up with solutions ie somone attacks me from the rear how do I respond to it. I am somewhat manipulative and usually can come up with ways to manipulate people ie Mr.Thorpe my english teacher enjoys intelligent discussion and so I debate him on certain issues like how shylock the jew was actually the victim and end up his favorite. My peers in my grade think I am retarded because I get bad grades and dont participate but it is because usually I am in my mind trying to answer solutions and problems not thinking about the stupid thing were doing in class. I love to be on my own however a companion who enjoys intelligent discussion and debate is most always welcome. I am hoping to either become a psychiatrist or a philosopher of religion and science. I love risk and chess and general games of strategy. I like to work alone on projects because I dont want to have to rely on others because they could interfere with my ideas and my plan. Especially in subjects like English for stuff like writing our own short story I come up with a plot line that could easily be over 400-500 pages but I have it do in 2 days and the max is 3 pages and so I come up with something dumb and meaningless at the last minute because I couldn't condense my original idea into 2 pages. I procrastinate. I am messy without trying to. I miss appointments and important dates because I forgot it because in my mind I am thinking of something very much more important. I re-think my ideas and beliefs on subjects like abortion and god all the time. If you have read this far I thank you and want your opinion on whether I am a intj or a intp. Bye.
