    Default ENTP? INTP? Who knows!

    Hey everybody,

    I'm coming here looking for some of my questions answered, but also because my previous Internet hangout when down the shitter years ago, and I figure that if I'm going to find people who think like me, it'll be at a personality type forum.

    Anyway, I'm an INTP in a very interesting relationship with an ENTJ (I think). The funny thing is, the I and the E used to be reversed. When we went into the relationship, I was an ENTP and she was an INTJ or INFJ. One of the two... It was great until I started becoming more reserved again. I thus became an INTP and her an ENTJ.

    Anyway, this is just a hey high and hello, although I have one question:

    Are there ways to fundementally change a personality type? I've always been straddling on the lines of E and I and I want to cross either one or the other and be assured of it. Hopefully, that'll be the E... and if I do, will it change my modes of Extraverted Intuition and Introverted Thinking on their heads around from each other, thus changing my type?

    We'll see.

    Being introverted is different to being reserved, they're not the same thing, personally I don't believe types change our preferences are innate, it's our behaviour that changes.

    Anyway, welcome

    Hi I'm new here as well . I agree with Trinity, people may change their behavior but it's highly doubtful that it changes who they are, just how they're perceived. If you've began acting with a bit more reserve then you're test probably reflected that when it gave you your type. Nothing's perfect, the "score" can only analyze reflections of our personalities through what we observe about ourselves which is often all kinds of skewed anyway.
