    Default Just an INFJ/INTP here. =]

    Hey there MBTIc!
    Well, my names Zane, and I'm a member of INTPc.
    I'm having a hard time deciding wether I'm an INFJ or an INTP. Even though the two types vastly differ...
    SO, I'm at both forums. Looking forward to noting the differences of MBTIc.
    Thinking this forum might be able to help me decide finally between the two types.
    What to say about myself? Well, I'm an enneagram 5 with 4 wing sx variant, a Virgo.... I love to write poetry and prose. I'm an aspiring photographer. A Sci-Fi fanatic. I'm generally obsessed with electronica...
    What else to say?
    Thats all I can really think of for now.

    -Zane.

    Very interesting.

    Welcome.

    I've never heard of someone stuck between INTP and INFJ, lol.

    What in both types do you relate to?

    Really? Yeah, I guess it is an odd combination!

    Well, in the INFJ, the strong inclination for writing, able to communicate much better through the written world. The deep connection to music. Intuitively 'knowing' people's motives/characters ect. Being very idealistic. Complex inner world, deep. Desire to connect with another on a very deep level. Always searching for meanings, the underlying principle. I have a quiet stregnth. Intense. Strong emotions. Very few friends, but meaningful relationships with the ones I have. In love with love. Sometimes experience ESP. Enigmatic.
    Quite abit really, I could go on and on.

    And the INTP,
    Can seem totally detachted and aloof at times, off in some self constructed mental landscape. Precise about things, take time to think before speaking.
    Basically benign and easy-going until one of my beliefs is challenged, then I become very verbal.
    Rich imagination. Can be a procrastinator. Observer.

    It's hard to say, really.

    Hey Zaney!

    I would recommend submitting yourself to those who frequent "What's my type?" although I don't know how accurate they are. I've been trying to force an answer. Popular consensus for me seems to be INTP, but for some reason I don't think that's right.

    I wish you luck on your quest for knowledge of the MBTI. However, I've found that the more I know, the more foggy it becomes...

    Your INTP traits sound like INFJ traits.

    An INFJ with well developed Ti can be virtually indistinguishable from an INTP. Have you read the INFJ and Single-mindedness thread? If you have those stubborn and defensive traits then you could fit the bill.

    That's what I was thinking.

    Then again, listing individual traits as pointing to certain types helps no one. If one were to pick and choose, I could easily be ENFP.

    You've got to look at yourself as a whole. Otherwise the whole thing doesn't work.

    Really? Well, I've seen those exact traits written in an INTP discription many times...
    But I guess they're similar nonetheless...

    And yes, I just read it. And agree with my being defensive, BUT I'm not dramatic or anything at all.
    Just when I feel challanged/irritated.
    I'm still at odds with it though not completely convinced I'm INFJ.

    You should read Delirious Disposition's thread on the differences between INFJs and INFPs. It helped me to figure out my type for sure.

    For awhile I wasn't sure if I was an INFJ or an INFP. But her thread helped a lot. I'd give you a link, but I'm at work right now and can't open more than one window. Sorry. If I remember correctly, it was in the Personality Types category.

    Edit: Nope, I was wrong. Its in the NF Idyllic and its entitled:

    INFJ or INFP or Another Type?

    Oh, and by the way......Welcome!!!!!
