Hi everyone, this is my first post on the forum and I hope that subscribing here turns out to be interesting.
I'm not sure if the MBTI theory is really nonsense but I find it very interesting. I'm very curious about human behavior and especially what's happening behind the scenes. I think my type is INFP but sometimes I relate strongly to Ni. So who knows, maybe I find some answers or at least a little more insight to that subject from here.
Hmm, what would I tell about myself... This is difficult because at this point my mind goes blank and everything I come up with is irrelevant, random and makes no sense at all. Guess I just write it here anyway. I'm: slow, indecisive, I bump into things, get lost easily, quite shy, kind, like cats, sometimes poor listener because my mind starts to wander, empathic, open-minded, like red wine and fireplaces. So, yeah, quite weird for most people.
Besides psychology and MBTI, I'm interested in history, animal and human rights, politics and religion.
Hi and welcome.
I want to clarify this one thing about your post. There is a stereotype about INTJs and INFJs being cat people. Just saying.
You can be an INFP who strongly identifies with Ni at times. There is nothing that says you can't be. And it fits in with my theory that extroverted functions (such as Ne in your case) will at times invert to become like Ni. I believe it is a trait related to stress.
"I absorb energy like a sponge everywhere I go. It allows me to see the world and my purpose in it." Zak Bagans, Ghost Adventures (INFJ)
If you are an INFP whose life might have been difficult and introverted as a child, then you might have developed your Ni at the cost of some of your Ne. So your primary function as an INFP would be Fi, followed by Ne. But if you introverted excessively, that Ne would have been turned into Ni. Fi/Ni is an interesting blend, for sure.
What the heck? When I hear, say or read "Ni", I do so with the voice of Graham Chapman!
