    Wink New Here and a Bit Conflicted

    Hello, I'm currently a highschool student (Senior) in the US. I took a psychology class my previous year and resolved to take and advanced course during my final year. I genuinely enjoy the class; psychology is a lovely mixture of art and science.
    Anyhow, I took the MBTI last year (it was an assignment for our class). My original result was INTJ and I can say it seemed fairly fitting. Out of curiosity I took the test again just a few days ago and my type had changed to ENTP. I took the same test (Humanmetrics). The percentages in the E and P areas were low; both equalling 11.
    After looking over the ENTP profile I can say it sounds applicable, but I'm unsure; seeing as types don't change much (from what I've seen anyways). I hope to gain some clarity on my type here and learn as I do.

    The worst mistake people make in political arguments is assuming that the other side is not trying to do the right thing. This simple oversight makes productive conversation nearly impossible.

    Types DO change. Mystery solved. Look at the research.

    does that really reflect actual type change, though, or just people taking a while to really understand the system and figure out their type? as far as i have learned the idea of "personality" is that it is something that is fairly stable from early on despite external influence. if it changes easily, there is little reason to type people.

    hi reece good luck with figuring things out! knowing you're NT is a good start.
