    Nope . That's weird, isn't it? If I don't trust it, why is it there? I guess because it was so close and I like continually re-evaluating things once new input indicates a possible change/lack.

    My psychologist is sooo NF and it was wicked talking to him the other day and i could see the cogs going round in this head when he was talking about rationalising perfectionism. My thought process doesn't allow me to go deep enough so i only superficially skim the surface to try and correct my errors in thinking. So messed up, but i love a challenge.

    I hope you are able to find out what type you are.
    I don't envy you.

    Heh. We're at least one step closer now. I think it's safe to say we can rule out ISFJ based on what's been given so far. I'm inclined to think EF but that's only due to the amount of zest that's been presented with all the posts. Based on limited information, it's difficult to imagine you as an IXFJ. I don't know for about IXFP, but it seems unlikely too - wouldn't rule out it completely. But since you never considered it in the first place we can rule that out. It's worth considering that the teaching environment will naturally push you towards becoming more structured.

    That leaves ESFJ, ENFJ and ENFP.
    Based on your understanding of functions, how would you describe your function order?

    INFJ, or XNFP, I don't think the other options are valid. I'm thinking INFJ because your behavior is similar to one I know, but it might just be NF vibes...

    XNFP, it's hard to tell if you're introverted or extroverted without seeing how you act irl, but I'm sure that if you read enough information, and perhaps ask for a friends perspective here and there, you'll work it out. The thing is, you really need to have the ability to analyse yourself accurately, you can either get this by getting to know a million different people and analysing the difference between you and them, thus cementing your position in the world, or by reading as much MBTI/Socionics theory as you can and then take a good look at how you think. A good mixture of both methods will probably work best. Considering that you're most likely and NFP, you'll probably have trouble detaching yourself, but no trouble at all when you're analysing other people (presumably).

    So it looks like my results are:

    Ne (4.0) > Fi (3.5) = Te (3.5) = Fe (3.5) > Ti (3.0) > Si (2.9) > Ni (2.8) > Se (2.6)

    Where:

    0 = nearly not at all
    1 = a little
    2 = some
    3 = quite frequently
    4 = very often
    5 = almost all the time
