    Not too sure what to say. I keep resisting being labled as any type that I can never get the same result twice. I want to think I'm unique but fear that I am just average.

    But here is what I do know:

    I am a 40-something, married, mother of two children (8 and 12). I find myself currently unemployed so that gives me a lot of time to dwell and nurse my anxieties.

    Life has thrown me some pretty sharp curves in the past year. Some have led to long needed insight but most have just led to more questions. I hope to get some additional insights and learn to enjoy the journey and not worry so much about the desitination.

    Welcome, hon, glad you could make it.

    Perhaps you belong in the "Ivy" category, she seems to transcend type identification too. And she's certainly not average either.

    damn enneagram 4 infp's ?

    to extend on what the lovely jennifer has just said, *wink*
    people are many things, and many types

    I for one am an ENFJ-INTJ-INFP-ISFJ-ISTJ
    perhaps you are more
    perhaps you are simply yourself - a harder task than being a 4-letter generality

    I think most of the INFPs easily see themselves in the INFP profile and if they don't, they usually move on to mistype themselves INTP.

    Welcome. If you could choose what type you were, what would it be?

    I would choose to be either a ESFJ or an ISFJ.

    For the life of me, I can never seem to remember what all the descriptions are. The only one I seem to remember is what my husband is - INFP. I can rattle off a lot of the traits his type possesses but have a hard time recalling any that would describe me. I'm sure there is something to that but I haven't figured out what yet.

    Do these type profiles fit you at all, or are they opposites you strive for? Have you ever scored as ESFJ or ISFJ?

    If either fits well, the fact you would choose to be that type might indicate some insight into your preference. Only your own self-discovery process can validate or disprove this.

    Yo. Sometimes I wish I was an ESFJ. I might be king of the world by now.
