    Default Hi, new INxJ

    Hi kids. I'm thirtiesgirl, newbie (duh), and still on the fence as to whether I'm an INFJ or an INTJ. I recently took a paid Myers-Briggs online test (as opposed to one of those 5-question online quickies) and was typed as an INTJ. While I thought the initial description fit me, after spending some time on an INTJ-specific forum, I began to question whether it was the right fit for me.

    After doing some research and reading, I think the INFJ type fits me better, although I'm still on the fence. I'm sure I'll learn more as I go. In younger years, I often tested as an INFP. I was a more sensitive sort back then, but the years (sadly, though I hate to admit) have helped create a tougher outer shell; hence the J...and possibly the T. ...Although, as I've said, I'm beginning to question that typology.

    More about me: I'm a music geek (mostly morose indie pop music from the '80s & '90s), indie film, books, pop culture, subcultures, crime fiction, Victorian lit, and I love the style and decor of the 1920s and '30s. ...Anyway, that's more than enough about me. Now tell me, what do you think about me? ...Ye gods, I used an emoticon! Kill me now.

    I'd say that if you knew about 'invictus' on your own before the movie, then I'd figure you for an INFJ. If you know what SF means by Erdos then I'd figure you for an INTJ. I dated an INFJ who was convinced that she was an INTJ, until the world views were examined.

    In either case, you're probably as psycho as the rest of us. Best not to get hung up on the labels.


    hi and welcome.

    granted, but its a self reporting test, like others, so we're free to come to our individual conclusions

    that the system as well as the test of course are for our own individual benefit and what we do/don't gain from it... so in your case it didn't make the cut, whereas for someone else it might to a greater degree or maybe a lesser degree... that's what I meant by 'on an individual basis'
