    I still test as INTP sometimes. Although I rarely take tests anymore because they're biased because I know which questions are which.

    After receiving an INTJ on my first MBTI test (I have NO idea how I got back that J), and concluding it was wrong, an INFJ friend of mine told me she thought I was an INTP. After taking more tests which almost unanimously told me I was an INTP and reading the descriptions, I was definitely convinced I was an INTP for the longest time. But after some rethinking and self-examination, it turns out I've been an ISTP all along - a borderline one with the S/N, but still an ISTP.

    I've been teaching myself the piano on and off, and I like art in general - especially drawing. I'm going to be majoring in animation.

    I dunno what's with the tests giving rivaling N and S typings. I'm on that borderline as well. It seems it's a bit more common than I thought it was, unless borderlines really do view things similarly. Some think borderline results occur when takers don't understand how to answer questions. That, or it's a rare thing.

    And I'm an avid musician, to answer to the OP's revision.

    Or the tests are problematic :P

    I think perception tests are better done with scenarios.

    Has been mistyped INTP, INFP, ENFP. Has always been mistyped N.

    I blame this on tests that were probably made by N people who always seem to write S questions in a slightly negative way.

    For example: which do you prefer to describe yourself?
    a) intelligent visionary
    b) car mechanic


    (ok i exaggerate BUT THEY ARE KINDA LIKE THAT!!!)
    (p.s. i have nothing against car mechanics)
    (p.p.s CARS POLLUTE!)
    (p.p.p.s. i only think this way cos i have no $$ to buy cars)

    I test ISTP most of the time but I also test INTP. I just find ISTP fits me much better.

    I play fiddle.

    Seeing others post, helped me percieve more of an S vs. an N for myself.

    Over time I've played a lot of different instruments, and am very good fixing or making
    things...just do it automatically.

    Doesn't matter if it's plumbing, electrical wiring, painting canvas or walls, refinishing
    furniture, building furniture...

    Which isn't to say that an INTP wouldn't do some if not many of those things...or that
    they wouldn't be somewhat musical, and athletic. Just seems that the later two in
    conjunction with taking calculated physical risk such as motorcross. Had me going ah ha!

    S seems to fit.

    Same here.

    I play drums, but I need some serious practice to be what I consider as a "good drummer".
