    Default Best friend: INTP or INTJ?

    Best friend is a female sophmore. She is also a 5w6. I am a 7w8. She also needs to smile more, I can feel the monotony from a mile away.
    She has a msn display picture of Putin (big fan of him), no pic at all, or ironic pictures of creepyness. (For example, old ladies looking like creepos carrying umbrellas.) Into studying the nazi pyschology aspects. Wants to be criminal psychologist. Likes rock (rammstein is her favorite band). Both me and her really hate to read books. (Extreme emphasize on the hate). Favorite tv show is the X-Files. Best jokes are extremely offensive jokes about racism, sexism, and politics.
    Raises hands in classes she is interested in. Likes dogs. Wants a dog. Spends most of time online. Room messy as hell. Good at picking up social cues/what to do in social situations, however does not seem to know how to jump into society/or have the courage to."
    She is abit paranoid and jumpy. I have a hard time telling if her sarcasm is real or a joke. She tells me she wants to make love to me and I'm not sure if there's a underlying meaning.
    Overthinks EVERYTHING! She does care what others think, however only on a basic level. She just doesn't want them thinking she's weird/creepy. (Especially since she doesn't show any other "side") Pet peeve is hypocrits.

    Best friend is conflicted.

    I ask her...

    "Introvert vs Extrovert" and she says....

    "introvert because i like being alone. i like social stuff i just get irritated with it real fast, and the talking just seems pointless half the time, and i'd rather be doing something more productive or just spacing off. can't stand parties and the loop either, too much going on at once and i tend to focus on one thing at a time."

    Her on general people: "people are okay. but if i had to pick? i don't really like them too much. i'd be happier if i was on the planet alone, with the exception of a few friends sparsed out all over the place."

    "Sensor vs Inuitive" (Well, I asked her if she likes concrete or abstract ideas" and she says...

    "i prefer listening to whatever as long as it makes valid sense and i can see where someone's coming from."

    My take: My idea buddy. We talk about such subjects including politics, religion, ect ect I always talk to her if I have a new idea or a new theory. And she and I point out errors and what if examples.

    "Feeling vs Thinking" and she says...

    "a mix because a decision that i have to apply with other people are going to expect some sort of moral reaction from me, otherwise they think i'm weird and shit and i don't like that."

    I asked her- "What about personal decisions that you make, and nobody cares, like a decision about your career?"

    She said...
    "logical but i also take in consideration if i'll be like.. happy doing it and stuff. i think that's still logical but it could be feeling? D:"

    "Perceiving vs Judging" and she says...

    "i don't really know if i'm a P or a J. i think i'm a perciever because i tend to see behind what's shown when i'm making more 'deep' decisions, and try to comprehend everything completely. but if i had to apply my actions, i'd definitely try and weigh out the pros and cons to come to a decision, especially if i'm doing it almost blindly. sometimes i don't always go with my judged decisions, usually because i'm afraid to."

    My take: Her hanging around me is making her more Judging. She sees me being a total candidate for high school dropout and future hobo, she's wanting to be more in control and successful.



    Her philosphy about life generally is that life is tough, there's no way to go agaisnt the wave and come out alive. She knows she can come out alive, however there is a lack of motivation/courage/knowledge of how to. She makes do with what she has and just wants to be left alone and die with a neutral happiness. Me on the other hand is a extreme adventurer and finds some way to go agaisnt the wave.



    NOTE: I know that MBTI is only to be used to help one indivually and that I shouldn't be typing anybody. However, she wants to know and I'm bored.

    The fact that she is fond of Putin is a dead giveaway.

    EDIT: But in all seriousness, her need for control suggests J rather than P.

    Definitely J.

    Besides... How can anyone mistake INTP for a INTJ?? These types are so far apart! It's like a piglet and a rhinoceros! (no offence, I just happen to know many INTPs and INTJs - math&physics class in High School, ya know ).

    The only other two types differentiated by J/P, that are THAT different, are ISTP and ISTJ. Attitude toward risk - you figure this out.

    You used 3 winky faces in this post. I'm impressed

    But yes, INTPs and INTJs are waay different and easily differentiable once you're familiar with the types (though I don't know if Levina is).

    Moderatly. However, I assumed she would be INTP.

    You should also consider ISTP.

    I don't think she quite understands the Perceiving/Judging dichotomy.

    She is as messy as hell. While she does think her ideas are "right" (To a extent) she doesn't inforce them on others with upmost force.
    And she fits the stereotypical image of a INTP better than INTJ.

    She is in no way a SP of any sort. Lol

    TBH I don't either. I'm just going off the general descriptions.

    She also wants to note : "i have the desire to control my own life, i don't give a shit about others to mess with theirs, unless i'm being hurt by it. "
    "i have no need to control >:c i like it when others take charge and i work behind the scenes"
    "i'm still not sure what i am but i don't think i'm an intj if it involves controlling. because thats the last thing i want, i stay away from anything that involves having me lead others, and i work alone for that very reason because i feel i can work more efficiently that way. because i hate telling others what to do and hate being the nasty boss no one likes."

    My take: "Or...She just seems to like working alone."
