I had first discovered Jungian type theory sometime in the mid to late 90s and found it interesting but never explored it much beyond the information that was available on-line back then (not much back then). Over the last half year or so, I had noticed that I was acting less and less like myself (or at least who I percieved myself to be) but just took it for stress making me do strange things. Somewhere in that time, I stumbled across a recommendation for the book "Was That Realy Me" by Naomi L. Quenk and decided to order it along with Please Understand me II by David Kiersey. Until I had read those books, I believed myself to be an INxJ but after reading parts of each of them, I now realize how little I knew and how badly I was misuing type theory. Understanding how I/E and J/P actualy work and affect N/S and F/T has caused me to question weather I actually have a J or P preference as well as continuing to be uncertain of F/T. So even though I know and understand a lot more about temperament and type now than I did a month or so ago and I'm actually less certain of what I am now than I was before.
A week or so ago, I was doing some googling to try to find more information to help me figure out what I am and came across the site INFJ or INFP? a closer look which had a ton of information and I learned a lot of new things and gained a better unsderstanding of some of the concepts that were new to me from the books. I still have a lot of uncertainty about my type, but think observing and interacting with communities that identify themselves clearly as specific types may give me a better idea of which I best identify with which is what has brought me here.
The username I chose is TenebrousReflection. I was going to go with FragmentedReflection to symbolize feeling like the reflection I see when I look in the mirror is not whole and I'm trying to put the pieces back together and see what I realy am. That name was taken so I visited the thesaurus and found a word that sounded good and still had a similar spirit to it even though its a lot darker in connotation. I can be dark and gloomy a lot of the time, but I try to be optimistic too - an optimistic cynic if that doesnt seem like too much of a paradox.
