    Default Found out I'm an INFJ and it's racking my brain

    First took the MBTI test when I was 22 and was an INFP and that was the last period in my life where I tested as one. While at the time it seemed to have fit me to the t, I was extremely depressed and had been so for most of my childhood and early adulthood. Then, I started testing as INTJ. Was not an INTJ, got yelled at by a small MBTI group that I was an INFP so I started claiming to be one again though never really felt that was me or related to other INFPs. Yeah, yeah, everyone wants to be an INFJ and according to that wacky EJArendee on youtube, he can't even meet INFJs because INFPs are pretending to be them. INFPs are also rare. Why would you want to torment yourself by being alienated anyways?

    There is also the stereotype that "INFPs hate themselves so you just don't want to be one".

    I've been reading more about the cognitive functions and it's racking my brain that I might actually be an INFJ. I get it now. My primary function is Ni, second function Fe. It would make sense that I've gotten INTJ on tests before because we both use Ni. I was never interested in any of the INFP forums; didn't relate or was annoyed. One of the characteristics of INFPs I didn't relate to is how most of them seemed to take things personally. How they would turn something that wasn't even about them and feel offended. Anyways, here's a video blog I made this weekend. INFJs tend to be able to know their own kind. So, what's your opinion and why? It's done in one take and had just woken up. Pretty hung over from celebrating my birthday the night before. Had thought about doing it over after watching it and thinking how depressing it sounded and thought if some people in my lives got a hold of it, they might worry. If you think I'm actually an INFP, I'll gladly stop posing as an INFJ.

    Here's a video from 2011. A friend and my dad had passed away shortly before this video, but it's actually funny despite the sadness I was feeling. I kept taping it over and over until it was funny. Disregard the numbers I was spewing off in the beginning. I am obviously not an INTJ.

    There was also that claim that INFPs hate themselves so I just didn't want to be myself.

    INFJ and INFP are pretty different in function order so while there may seem like one letter difference their role function is very different. Maybe try a function order test and see if that helps.

    Also, the 'tests' are self typing tests, no-one has the right to shout at you about who you identify as, that's ridiculous. You are whoever you identify yourself to be.

    Try not to worry too much about other people, especially if they are trying to manipulate you into choosing what they want you to be.

    If you say you are INFJ and happy with that then that's good enough for me. If you decide you want to take a clooser look at your type and want to start a type me thread I'll be happy to have a look and comment etc...be prepared though, you may end up more confused that when you started.

    But anyway.... long post.

    Yes, please type me. Is there a different place I should be doing that other than here? I don't want to be posing as an INFJ if I am not one.

    Welcome
    Took the cognitive functions test at http://cognitivequiz.com/

    Based on your cognitive functions, your type is most likely:
    Most Likely: INFJ
    or Second Possibility: INFP
    or Third Possibility: ENFP


    Your Cognitive Functions:
    Introverted Intuition (Ni) ||||||||||||||||||||||| 10.635
    Introverted Feeling (Fi) |||||||||||||||||||||| 10.17
    Extroverted Intuition (Ne) |||||||||||||||||||||| 10.11
    Extroverted Feeling (Fe) ||||||||||||||||||||| 9.91
    Extroverted Thinking (Te) |||||||||||| 5.24
    Introverted Thinking (Ti) ||||||||||| 4.76
    Introverted Sensation (Si) || -0.46
    Extroverted Sensation (Se) || -1.97

    Your Extroverted Intuition (Ne) is moderate.
    Your Introverted Intuition (Ni) is moderate.
    Your Introverted Thinking (Ti) is moderate.
    Your Extroverted Thinking (Te) is moderate.
    Your Extroverted Feeling (Fe) is moderate.
    Your Introverted Feeling (Fi) is moderate.
    Your Introverted Sensation (Si) is low.
    Your Extroverted Sensation (Se) is poorly developed.


    Your cognitive functions are, in order of development:
    Ni - Fi - Ne - Fe - Te - Ti - Si - Se
