    That was my take when I was shuffling types but I found reading this cleared up a lot of questions I hadn't been able to find answers to by using MBTI.

    Actually, good question. What type are you? I've always thought of you as the Ivy type.

    I've totally been experiencing confirmation bias since last time! I now think it is all but obvious that you are a springy Ne user, not a dogged Ni user, and also that you are a no-nonsense Te user rather than an academic Ti user. Add to it that mature Fi users learn to wield some Fe (and that the differences between learned and natural Fe are less salient online) and that mature IXFPs learn to restrain their Fi, and as far as I'm concerned you're all set as a mature but not irregular exemplar of the (N) type that struggles the most with typing themselves.

    This sure sounds to me like extroverted perception in action in support of contrary Fi! (A TP might exhibit the same type of contrarian reaction, but it seems more founded in their fetishization of objective truth (you-must-respect-the-logic/the-data :rolli: ) than in their identification with a belittled party, even when the latter is also in play (witness ptgatsby in a thread about e.g. bullying).) As for your resistance to 'falsely limiting yourself to one type', I must say I admire the strength of your Fi defense against the logical concession of your best-fit type.

    Disclaimer: Remember, I do acknowledge my spectacular lapse into confirmation bias! I'm just throwing this in since you request perspectives on how you are viewed, and this is my (current ) perspective.

    ... That said, I would appreciate having my attention drawn to evidence of Ni and Ti in action on your part. I don't recall any displays of toonia/Athenian200-style philosophizing from you, which I would expect from an INFJ with your level of (Big Five) Intellectual Curiosity.

    Ivy: I don't know you all that well, but from what I've seen of your interaction on the forum, I would say that you strike me as INFP. Your posting style reminds me of heart's a bit, and like Economica said, your description of identifying/defending the party being ganged-upon is a pretty strong indicator of INFP.

    I agree.

    I really appreciate all the responses. I guess INFP is the most likely culprit here. I have to admit it just doesn't feel authentic to me, although I guess striving for authenticity is kind of an INFP thing to begin with.

    Yeah. You're definitely IxFx. And INFP has IF as it's two strongest letters.

    I guess I might not have wanted to type you as INFP because you just don't seem quite random or disorderly enough in your thought process and communication to be P in most respects. Then again, a lot of people who type as INTP surprise me in the same way. I've been encountering a lot of very clever INFPs lately. Perhaps you're another one.

    The main thing that throws me off is... well, you don't show a lot of Te bluntness or Fi drive and will. Ah, well... MBTI doesn't really make that much sense, anyway.

    (Oops, was I not supposed to admit that as an admin on a forum that is pretty much based on it? Oh well!)

    I have to say I love the differences in our approach to MBTI in general and our own types in particular. I mean, I initiate small talk with strangers at social gatherings (that I happily attend), I readily share my feelings with friends and even acquaintances, I care more about romance than success and - here's the real kicker - I'm (admittedly newly) open-minded. And by now I have enough experience with typing to know the limitations of MBTI all too well. Yet I have no qualms whatsoever identifying as an INTJ and I would never concur that MBTI does not make that much sense.
