    I am working toward having that type of relationship with my wife. Lol. Personality typing really has helped us understand each other and how to deal with each other.

    Yes, well, I'm not married to him! LOL!


    Have you seen this enneagram site?
    I found it the most comprehensive, and others have said they trust its accuracy.

    It does seem that I am naturally a type 1. That would explain me shifting to the 2 to survive.

    Yay!

    If I was a J, I'd be, like, "There we go, case closed." (Instead, I'm like, "That's probably it... but we haven't yet beaten all the options to death.")

    It sounds like a solid theory, though.

    “Pleasure to me is wonder—the unexplored, the unexpected, the thing that is hidden and the changeless thing that lurks behind superficial mutability. To trace the remote in the immediate; the eternal in the ephemeral; the past in the present; the infinite in the finite; these are to me the springs of delight and beauty.” ~ H.P. Lovecraft

    Out of curiosity, what makes you say that? My wife and I were going back and forth about T/F. Here are some things I came up with to consider:

    • I have both the NT cold, detached, rationalize everything side and the NF compassionate, understanding, patient side.
    • I mostly think myself through situations, problems, etc. I can also feel myself through situations. I do tend to trust logic over insight; although, I do act on my instinct more than I realize. I tend to not trust myself as much as I should.
    • I am more comfortable in the presence of an NT over that of an NF. I can relate with both but probably not either.
    • The motivation behind an action means more to me than the action itself.
    • I dream about and long for a time when I can feel nothing and be completely autonomous.

    There are many reasons which can't be explained in a few words, but primarily consider that when you are using your logic engine, aka Thinking, emotion isn't necessarily involved. You can't finish a mathematics exam with emotional judgment (Feeling).

    What seems to be the case to me is that your typical concerns are emotional, but just like everyone (well almost everyone) you use Thinking when it's the applicable tool.

    You not being conscious of the above due to a preference for F would be another reason for my typing you F. (INTJs rarely think they might be INFJ).

    Does anyone know about my X questions earlier? Also does anyone know if how you dream is affected by N/S or T/F functions? Are there resources I could trust concerning these topics?

    My INTJ husband believes dreams are something to do with blood flow to the brain or something like that. I don't think dreaming has anything to do with what type you are. This information might be useful.
