    Ok, I'm sticking with my initial read of INFP.

    because...i kinda think you can still be an enfp and have a lil social insecurity...because i do think we are so sensitive to others perception of us and our intuition isn't always right...it says negatively expressed it can read like paranoia or social anxiety...so...maybe it's just that....i don't mean that in a bad way...i just mean...intuition can still be your dominant function but you're reading people wrong so you retreat but if the read was positive you wouldn't...maybe??

    and i was a lot more shy when i was younger but eventually grew out of it.

    erin, if you don't mind my asking, how old are you?

    i guess the other thing to consider is that my childhood was notably psychologically abusive, so i figure that'll play into almost everything.

    and, if I was reading positive I wouldn't retreat, you're right. I have a pretty dominant and intense personality when I let it out, really intense, moreso than most people.

    (lol, so we've got one pretty sure i'm infp, the other pretty sure i'm enfp...)

    I get nervous in social situations... although I didn't used to.

    i'm 32 and was shy up until middle school probably but still very much fit the child enfp description besides that part.

    and i've been lucky to have a pretty cool upbringing...so was made to feel secure there...but some people can make me feel less so.

    neither a nor b fit me. I am usually fine if 3 strangers join as long as they don't treat me like the third wheel. if, though, they know the other people better than yeah, it fits.

    and B...no
    Not sure if you did this or not but you aren't supposed to think of how they fit you now. Children show a definite preference for a specific function over the other so think of which one identifies with how you were when you were younger.

    You might not be able to do that from an unbiased view... maybe get someone who knew you when you were younger to take a look at them?

    Distinctive NFP traits + Ex-Cutter + Shitty self-image? Definitely an INFP.

    I know an INFP who is very smart, but she's always cutting down on herself and talking about how much she sucks. And I'm like, "lol, you need to calm down and learn to love your failures."

    Your writing style seems very INFP to me. INTP seems highly unlikely.

    Something I've noticed is that INP's have very extroverted moments, especially in the company of their friends. The afformentioned INFP is very outgoing and crazy in front of her friends, but from her negativity, shyness around strangers and strong attachment to her values I know she is introverted. She also has a tendency to exaggerate events or aspects of herself in an obvious, nervous effort to make them appear more "extreme!" (and thus more interesting)

    Just throwing out a few observations which you may or may not relate to.
