    Based on this interpretation of Jung's work, and basing it on how you have generally behaved from the time you were about 8 years old until now, which would you say is the most natural, automatic and comfortable way that you interact with the world and where you direct your energy?
    I think I tend to like individual activities but when I do hang out in groups, I generally feel satisfied... I would say I'm still trying to debate which one I belong to, I'd say either way, it's really really close. Barely Introverted maybe. Now I need to figure out the other 3 letters lol. I'm pretty sure I'm a T.

    Try to study this quote again and see which one defines the way you approach life.

    Jung calls these people outwardly directed, or extraverted types:

    • consciously seek direction and adjustment in their lives almost exclusively guided by objects of the external world.


    • Facts and, circumstances,
    • the opinions and feelings of other people, and
    • ideas in current use,
    determine the adaptations which these people make to life.

    • When in difficulty, they seek support first of all from the external world.




    Jung called them inwardly directed, or introverted types:

    • guided, in so far as conscious motives are concerned, by entirely different factors; they are primarily conscious of their own subjective reactions to events.


    • They are peculiarly sensitive to these—


    • to what they feel,
    • how they think, about any situation.
    Where these reactions conflict, they seek to weld them into some sort of harmony of attitude and opinion.
    In their adjustment to life they thus take as starting-point their own needs and the demands of their own being.
    They also consult these when in difficulty, and for this purpose they withdraw into themselves.

    Introverted, and I'm pretty sure I'm a Thinker. So now I need to figure out the other two letters.

    As a reminder, we all use all the functions at some time, but MBTI is about what is most automatic, natural and comfortable for you, most of the time.

    As far as J and P go, a J needs closure and a P needs to leave their options open as long as possible.

    If it's hard to tell what you are, it's good to sort of compare yourself to other people you know.

    For instance, my husband always says stuff like, "We'll cross that bridge when we come to it", Stay flexible and have fun", "Do I have to decide right now?" He is a P. He feels more comfortable leaving his options open, so that he can make the best decision at the time action must be taken.

    Me? That drives me nuts! I want to know right now. I want it all decided ahead of time. I want to plan ahead. I want to check out all my options, make the best choice, and close the issue! I'm a J.

    lol then it sounds like I am a P to be honest. So I got I, T, and P. Now I just need to figure out the S or N part. How would you explain that?

    ISTJ or ESTJ if you're male, harder to say if you're female.

    Based on the posts on this thread, I would say you are an ISTJ.

    ISTJ or ESTJ if you're male, harder to say if you're female.
    Why does gender make a difference?

    Females tend to be more indecisive about this kind of thing, and the OP is indecisive.

    Would you please explain why you think you're a P?
    I would like to sort of verify it.
    I know you have a pretty good basic understanding of MBTT, but I'd like to verify it for myself if you don't mind.
    What did I say that made you think you are a P, and how are you more like my husband than me?
