Ok, I used to be sure that I was an INFJ. Esp as a teen, and even after going over the whole Kirskey thing with my family, it seemed I was an INFJ. Now, not so much though, and I've started to score INFP. Here's the problem. I'm much more outgoing and verbal and talkitive than either the INFP or the INFJ. BUT, only when I'm around one or two people. Around three, four, twenty and I clam up. And, even though I'm fine being a teacher I rarely go out in the evening, resent if anyone breaks into my mornings and hide for most of the weekends (except for going to church, which is necessary as much as I don't want to see people at that point). Still, quite outgoing with that stuff and willing to try new things.
Then the INFP description says that "my" type is quite about when other people have different opinions/ethics than the INFP. Obviously they've never met me. I'm much more ENFJ in that. I won't hide that I disagree with you, and if I do (which I feel like I do often) I feel deeply guilty about it, for not spreading what is 'right'.
Like the INFJ I have a strong sense of good vs. evil and I base a lot off of instincts and have had visions and stuff.
Also (and I'm not sure that this would be INFJ or INFP) I experience all emotions with almost violent intensity. I was a cutter for a time because of it, because what I felt was so strong (and often so anxty) that I could not express it. Also, esp when I'm in a stressed environment I feel other people's emotions *like* they're my own.
But I brood. But I can be really goofy and people often say that I'm alternately mature and deep and excitable and childlike.
And being around even moderately sized groups seriously overwhelms me.
And I think conveying information and insight is really important.
And I think self-understanding and improvement is key, because how can you understand anyone else or improve the world if you can't even do that for yourself?
*sigh* I'm confused.
