    Weren't you biased toward being an INFJ when you became an INFJ?

    This kind of perspective-breaking meta-thought is why Ni users are so fascinating to me. You'd never get that kind of joke from an INFP.
    If you could be anything you want, I bet you'd be disappointed--am I right?

    As far as I know, I've always been INFJ. Never "became" one.

    Being unable to see other perspectives is worse. Besides, define immoral.

    Theoretically, any intelligent person with a university education should be able to see other perspectives.

    Since when is being unable to see other perspectives an INFP trait? I generally associate that with STJs.

    Not the immediate perspectives. The STJs keep an open-mind towards what had worked.

    INFPs are better at seeing the immediate perspectives involving someone else's emotions, though not their data input style.

    Don't start a religious argument please.
    I really don't think this has anything to do with being an INFP or an INFJ for the record. There's a deeply religious Roman Catholic INFJ running around this very web site, and I'm an xNFP and I started thinking about all of this stuff when I was twelve. So...I seriously do not consider this to be a deciding factor. At all.

    Anyway, OP, if you so adamantly want to believe you are INFJ, there's nothing I can say to convince you otherwise. Heaven knows there's plenty of other INFPs that have INFJ as their type here. So see you around the forums.

    I just have a little bit better firsthand understanding of Ti than Fi, and nobody ever seems to ask about the differences between Ti and Te. If they did, my response would be very similar to my explanation of Fi/Fe.

    Suffice it to say I find Ti equally annoying and constantly wish I didn't have to use it for internal judgments. The fact that it doesn't take in any information from the outside world and also subjectively validates itself is pretty bothersome--Ti is totally unaware that its own conceptions of logic are just as subjective as Fi's conceptions of ethics.

    That's irrelevant. I don't care how you feel about other functions. The problem is that your bias in this case is presenting a slanted view, and that makes you incapable of explaining Fi accurately.

    There's too many people in this thread who don't have Fi as a function of their type asserting that their definition of it is more accurate over people who actually are Fi-dom. :rolli:

    To the OP: The oh so exclusive INFJ club is not a welcoming one. Come to the INFP dark side; we'll embrace you with open arms

    Hmmm, it seems very likely for the OP that the initial P confusion arrived from being diagnosed with ADD, in addition to wielding a strong form of Ni. It gives the individual more externally perceiving mannerisms than their J peers despite valuing external consistency.

    Being INFP is not a mental illness or behavioral disorder either :steam: :steam: :steam:
