    Default 18 months on...what has changed?

    Well, I haven't been here in 18 months. I've changed a lot in that time and went through some emotional highs and lows that I had hitherto never really experienced previously. I thought I was an ISTJ when I first signed up here, then changed to INTJ (with a weak N and T). With all of this in mind, here are my traits:
    - Have a fairly good work ethic and improving organisational skills
    - Many would describe me as being reasonably intelligent, but I've always been sceptical
    - Was once described by a teacher as an 'absent-minded professor'
    - A habitual loner with poor social skills
    - Have trouble making friends, but would like more close friends if possible
    - Pessimistic
    - Lack of self-esteem and wavering self-confidence
    - Can mindlessly idealise girls that I have a crush on (i.e - go on about how perfect they are)
    - Can take a while to admit my mistakes and errors, but always do eventually
    - Perfectionistic - can be down on myself when I don't succeed
    - My favourite bands are AC/DC, Guns N' Roses, U2 and The Cure - I used to listen to Megadeth and Metallica more often - I've been listening to the Smiths more often lately
    - Somewhat removed (i.e - often play out imaginary scenarios in my head)
    - Still moody
    - Do sometimes showboat in front of large crowds as a piss-take, hiding my embarassment at being the centre of attention (happened a few times at uni)
    - Like to cuddle those I have feelings of love for
    - Hide strong emotions and present a calm, emotionless facade
    - Am a bit of a softie (i.e - reluctant to punish others), but use logic often
    - Unathletic (although I've been working on my physical fitness since I last posted here)
    - Dislike conflict and don't always take criticism well
    - Fairly short attention span (i.e - my interests change fairly regularly, sometimes rehashing old interests)

    Politics-wise: I am, economically, a classic liberal and politically a neo-con.

    Religion: I'm a believing Catholic, although far more tolerant of agnostics and atheists than what I once was. I'm still not really a big fan of church (except on select days, where I feel that I should pay respect to those I believe in by going). I'm not a fan of homosexuality, but I'm friends with a bisexual and don't mind all that much when other people are.

    When depressed or not feeling good, I can:
    - Lacerate myself
    - Abandon logic and reasoning completely
    - Keel over in physical pain
    - Even more pessimistic and withdrawn than usual
    - Bad memories haunt me
    - Opening defy and avoid authority
    - Tend to threaten and abuse people
    - Listen to more violent and depressive music
    - Write long, rambling, depressing spiels

    So am I an ISTJ or INTJ (or something else)?

    Any help would be much appreciated.

    Probably INTJ if you identify with being intuitive. You probably just have a weak N. All of my preferences are weak, I'm in the same boat mentally. I think some of the things you've described challenging T vs F is explained by the enneagram 4. I would have to know more about you to make a judgment on N vs S.

    Hmm...I have a dillemma with two weak preference. Imagine what it'd be like to have four! I feel for you, brother.

    But:
    - Not especially practical (for various reasons, i.e - poor hand-eye coordination, low confidence, poor social skills)
    - I admire people who are athletic to some degree and have tried to improve my fitness over the past 18 months or so
    - Tend to forget to do simple tasks
    - Tend to make silly mistakes more often than I should
    - I sometimes step into an imaginary world
    - While I am good with theory, it does irritate me in certain scenarios
    - Good at rote learning, but can misinterpret various questions and even various social advances

    Yeah you're probably an N I'd say.

    Having 4 borderline preferences makes me quite balanced and quite confused at the same time.

    Yeah, from what you wrote, you are more of an N than S.

    Probably INTJ, though INTP could fit as well.
