    Default Mystery of Type.

    Is there a type who, more often than the others, that has great difficulty typing themselves as one particular type?

    Also can an unhealthy lifestyle (stress, past psychological drama, etc.) cause a person to type themselves wrong?


    The reason behind my asking is that I have taken these tests over and over, and each time I take them I type as something different. This seems to change week by week.

    Is it natural to type wrong so many times? I've taken it at least 30 or so times trying to locate my type. The most I have been able to get is that I'm IxFx.

    I tried looking at the functions of types, but seemingly get lost in them, unable to pinpoint how I function. Is this normal to a particular type?

    Anyone else had this much trouble
    Introverted (I) 77.42% Extroverted (E) 22.58%
    Intuitive (N) 52.5% Sensing (S) 47.5%
    Feeling (F) 55.26% Thinking (T) 44.74%
    Perceiving (P) 50% Judging (J) 50%

    In the fog of the horizon the dawn broke. We shouted like kings at the failing night and turned our heads to the broken house. Once more our hearts faltered, once more our minds were changed, but our spirit would never die.

    INFPs seem to have a lot of difficulty narrowing down their type, I've noticed.

    I think ISFPs are prone to mistyping too.

    When you are typing all over the place you aren't taking the test right. You are supposed to put the answer that sounds like what you do/are most of the time in the past.. Your mood shouldn't affect that.
