I've been trying to figure out my 15 yo son's MBTI type for some time, but I just can't seem to. My other two kids I worked out no problem (ENFP & ENFJ). I think the issue with "A" is that he has ADHD - Primarly Inattentive type, and these symptoms interfere with the mbti diagnosis.
Any suggestions on how to type someone like him?
Some things about him:
Fairly reserved at home, doesn't share much at all, quiet, mostly keeps to himself - computer, Facebook, videogames
Outgoing around other teens, friends, and very flirtaceous around girls, teachers are shocked that I describe him as 'quiet'
Has horrible 5-senses skills. Doesn't notice his environment whatsoever.
Does not enjoy sensory/thrill-seeking type activities
Can be sentimental - is the only one of my kids who helps me decorate the Christmas tree!
Is passionate about acting/theater, singing and helping other people tangibly. He participates in mission trips, works at the soup kitchen. Wants to go to college for theater and/or social work.
Has the worst organization skills, study habits known to man, and therefore does poorly in school. When I kick his butt and threaten to take away everything but the shirt on his back - he pulls his grades up.
He's definately very different than my other two. I know that he's a Feeler. I also get Si vibes. But I can't imagine that he's a J!
