    so, kind of a separate topic, but I'm curious:

    what made you decide you were INFJ and not ENFP?
    I tested as INFJ for many years. I never even considered ENFP until I came to this site and other people shared their opinions and I began learning function theory and comparing myself to other people of similar types on the board.

    I sometimes test INFP as well but I don't relate to the IxxP (it would have to be IxxJ Chart the Course, or ExxP Get Things Going) interaction style, nor do I relate to having Fi as my dominant function.

    The longer I've been on this site the more suspicious I've become of function theory. It seems that it's wildly speculative, there's a huge margin for error, it's not supposed to be based upon observable behavior, and similar behaviors can be explained by a seemingly endless combination of different functions. Not only that, but the recent Fi upset made me question it for myself as an individual because I've always been typed as NFP because of Fi (and J traits were explained away by others by me having "strong Te")...so if I don't relate to all of these upset Fi using people, what does that mean?

    I decided that it's more sensible to go with what is perfectly evident by the four dichotomies or Keirsey: Introverted, Intuitive, Feeling, Judger.

    Makes sense to me. I haven't had that problem because I relate to pretty much everything you see when INTJ is being described. If Ni exists, I'm an Ni dominant, if Te exists, I'm a Te auxilary, etc. But I can see how the functions might be ineffective or even misleading for others.
