    Default Can you have two personality types?

    High all, I have a bit of a question that perhaps some one with a greater depth of knowledge on the subject can answer. I fit neatly in to two different but similar boxes, INFP, and INTP. I fit both about 95%, with either completing the package where the other misses. I'm extremely analytical,
    But averse to minutia oriented planning (I do basics like calendars, sitting down before hand to think of a plan of attack, but rarely does that happen outside my head). I tend to act in an INTP way while I go about work or competitions. At the same time I am very in tune with both my feelings, and those of others, and operate off of INFP type behaviours when I'm dealing with people. Basically my results come out to how I interpret certain questions, particularly those regarding organization. Neither one seems to fit perfectly without the other, but I have a hard time imagining another personality set fitting better than these two. Perhaps I'm just cracked. Any information would be greatly appreciated, as I wonder down this rabbit hole that is my brain

    You either use Ti/Fe or Fi/Te, not both.

    Figure out your type through the cognitive functions.

    If you had two personalities, you would have multiple personalities.

    If you seemed to have some tendencies towards particular behaviours, and other tendencies which point in the opposite direction, you would be a normal human being.

    It is worth noting though, that Thinking has little to do with thoughts, and Feeling has little to do with emotion.

    You can if you are suffering from a mental illness.

    then you'd be insane, and you probably wouldn't be aware of them. at least not to this point. like i was worried the other day because someone elses thoughts were entering my head, but i was aware of it so it's like that. make sense? still freaked me out but at least i know i'm fine.
    In no likes experiment.

    that is all

    i dunno what else to say so

    Nope. However, I do the same. I'm an INTP it's just I thrive on positive feedback so I care.
    Isn't it time for a colourful metaphor?

    I guess if you're a hypocrite you can.
