I know this topic has been already posted on this website and is all over the internet, but the more I try to research and figure out whether I'm an INTJ or an INTP the confused I become. I've taken the test many times in the past and I used to almost always test as an INTJ. However, I've recently been testing more frequently as an INTP.
It's difficult to figure out which cognitive functions suit me best because I identify with the functions of both at different times and I'm unsure which ones I only experience under stress as shadow functions.
I'm mellow, open-minded, analytic, I'm more of a big-picture thinker and am good at envisioning everything from life goals to what structure my essay will follow when completed. I'm generally a good planner when it comes to those things, but my laziness gets in the way of implementing the strategies I set for myself.
I often second-guess myself and make decisions after mulling things over. I need to think about what I'm going to say before I speak, otherwise I speak nonsense and embarrass myself, but I still have a very difficult time explaining complex ideas or concepts in my head to others.
Hopefully there's enough information for someone to help me decipher my personality. If not just ask me for any information that might play into it.
