    Red face Hello, I am a undecided ENxJ

    Greetings!

    I am an undecided ENxJ who finds a struggle in trying to figure out whether his NT (generally rational and reasonable) friends are right in calling me an ENTJ, or his other NT friends (who disagree with his other NT friends on most axiological terms) are correct in nominating me as an ENFJ.

    I will list my key characteristics and struggles:

    -I have no difficulty relating to people in their struggles, but have a sincere problem with empathizing with issues which I deem as illogical or irrational.
    -I hold uncontrollable angst against those with irrational mindsets.
    -I enjoy philosophy in all of its applications.
    -I have an IQ exceeding 135 (I'm aware, it's relatively unrelated, but I think someone might have some valid points relating to it).
    -I have an affinity for art (especially music and poetry).
    -I enjoy linguistics.
    -I like to argue, but never in a setting where I'm treated in a condescending manner nor a fallacious one.

    I'm (close to) completely sure of ENxJ, but I have qualms with telling people a faulty type, and am therefore uneasy on my temperament.

    Thanks, a lot. Insight and feedback are welcome (but please don't waste my time with something you didn't think through).

    You sound decidedly ENTJ to me. Te practically leaps off the page at me

    Something tells me you're trying to make a point in this post against those NT friends of yours saying you're an ENFJ.

    ENTJ, sir. ENTJ all the way. Cause I know that's what you want to hear.

    It's difficult to tell with only one post, especially one that's clearly intended to bias the audience towards ENTJ.

    It's best to learn more about cognitive function theory prior to typing oneself.

    ENTJ = Te, Ni, Se, Fi
    ENFJ = Fe, Ni, Se, Ti

    Sounds Te but that does not rule out ENXJ as a distinct possibility. Why consider only the posting style (which could be Te) and not the content of the post? And why does everybody have to be exactly ONE type? I would not have a problem with declaring myself ENTJ/ENFJ, or INTP/INFP. Is there some rule in the MBTI against this, as there is with the Riso Enneagram? I would love to have the equal option of applying two opposing dominant functions to life situations, in which I can freely chose to allow one function to dominate here and the other there. The key is: more freedom.

    Answer this very simple question:

    If a friend has a problem, do you immediately "comfort" them, or instead instinctively offer calm, confident solutions to the problem?
