Hey all! I'm new to this forum, having stumbled across it a few days ago from random google searches I think. I discovered this MBTI test thing about a year ago and was really quite interested in it.
That year ago, I tested as an INTJ [not a proper test, but I got pretty consistent results across online tests and so on]. People generally agreed that was what I was - and so did I.
However, as of late, I've been testing quite consistently as an ENFJ [about 3/4 of the time?]. Not entirely sure what I am, though. I have a weird feeling that I might be compensating a bit for my answers - sort of aspiring towards the ENFJ, if you will. I sort of have been trying to be generally nicer/more open/louder/happier this year though. But as I see it, the ENFJ and INTJ are really quite different creatures and the swings in testing have been pretty drastic.
I've read some of the descriptions and so on for ENFJ and there are a few things which I agree with but there are also a few aspects which I think are remnants left over from my INTJness? For example, I'm still very quiet around people who've always known me as quiet and introverted. However, if there's someone I haven't seen for about 3 months then I act 'my new self' around them. I also think I lack the 'excellent people skills' assosciated with ENFJ? Something else which I have some trouble getting my head around - I find myself stuck at home a lot, and I can get very bored. Not my fault - I'd rather be outside and keeping myself busy, but when I get bored, I tend to overthink and mull my thoughts a lot?
If it's any help, on the PersonalDNA test I got 'benevolent visionary' and I believe I answered that honestly enough. I consistently get 2w3 on Enneagrams as well.
With functions testing I score high on extraverted feeling > introverted thinking = extraverted intuition. Which isn't really ENFJ or INTJ? haha
Haha perhaps I'm like... bipolar and have two different faces *shrug. Shed some light people? I've been a bit surprised how much I've apparently changed over the past year or so. Thanks heaps
PS: if you need me to describe anything else... feel free to ask ^.^
