    Default Salutations...

    Hmm, introductions....

    I am an INFJ male in my early 40's.

    100% I 69% N 71% F 56% J

    I'm pretty much your typical INF though I have qualities of both J and P, and am quite comfortable exercising my ST side as well.

    I prefer structure, but don't have a problem with spontaneity. I can intuitively take the emotional temperature of a room within seconds, yet can also intentionally take in all the sensory information to back up that conclusion. I am very much an emotional being, yet have no problem taking advantage of my logical side if need be.

    For the longest time, because of how I was raised, I had no clue who I was, personality wise.

    My mom raised me as an ST, lots of puzzles and games all over the house, so I have a pretty good handle on the whole logic/sensory thing. I eventually came to realize that she did so to try and help me deal with my overbearing step-father. He pretty much ruled out emotion as legitimate for a boy, demanded logical explanations for any/everything (intuition was "women's prerogative"), and constantly informed me that I was worthless, and would never amount to anything.

    It helps having a best friend/confidant that understands my situation and experienced my childhood firsthand. She's an INTP, and let me just be myself enough to be comfortable with who I REALLY was. I am forever in her debt, and she knows it.

    Self worth/confidence/respect has been and, will to some extent always be, an issue. As introspective as I am, I grew up not trusting myself or my NFness, and that took a long time to overcome.

    I have always found myself drawn to women with ENxP personalities, though, as I said, my best/closest friend is an INTP.

    Enough sharing for now, methinks.

    Hmm, took the recommended Enneagram test and scored 2w1 1w2 1w9 for the first three. Sounds about right...

    Heya CyberPhunk!

    I like your username. Hope you enjoy your time here. It's a great place to learn more about yourself, others, and have a little fun
    You hem me in -- behind and before;
    you have laid your hand upon me.
    Such knowledge is too wonderful for me,
    too lofty for me to attain.

    Welcome.

    I second the notion that you have a really cool username.

    Are you interested in cyberpunk as a genre at all?

    Aye, I find it quite fun. Gibson was my introduction to the genre, and I've enjoyed most of the similar books I've read over the years.

    My user name is one I've used for a few years now, and it basically came from how much I'm interested in/involved with computers, and also how, for most of my life, Iv'e felt different from pretty much everyone else. Just a bit funky. As my mom used to say, I was "born just a little bit off."

    It's also a play on an old handle I used as a kid in school, CypherPunk, when I wrote crypto code for hackers. Computers AND maths?!? I had a lot of fun back then.

    Hello Mr CyberPhunk

    I myself had just joined the forums as well.

    As a casual recommendation, go more in-depth into the cognitive functions instead of seeing the MBTI for the four dichotomies that it presents itself as for they can be deceiving. Puzzles and games do little to say that one is raised to be a certain type, I feel.

    Just a simple observation, FJs and TPs never go too far in becoming friends, not to dispute your friendship, but I think one or both of you might have your type(s) mistaken.

    Then again, feel free to prove me wrong.

    I like how transparent you are with your post. To get to know each other, at the end of the day, at least either one of us will get to learn something.

    Carve doors and windows to make a room,
    and it is because of the hole that the room has its use.

    Where there is is what gives you the tangible,
    but where there is not is what gives it its use."

    Hmm, That was an oversimplification on my part, methinks. My mom always encouraged me to exercise my senses, like having me close my eyes and describe in detail what was going on around me from what I could hear/smell, or recall as much as possible what I had seen just before closing my eyes. As for the puzzles, a lot of them were of the logic problem type, not jigsaw puzzles. Either that, or physical manipulation types, like trying to figure out how to remove the ring, or how to rebuild the puzzle, after it was taken apart.

    As for FJs and TPs not being friends, I'm 100% positive about both my, and my best friends' types. And, you might want to do some research about INFJ and ENTP relationships.
