I've tried to type my personality using various questionnaire,and I'm 90% sure I'm an INXP but I have serious problem determining whether I'm a T or a F.
When I was a kid, I didn't share the common traits of INFP. I don't recalling day dreaming or living in a fantasy. I didn't like fiction or fantasy books. Instead, I loved biography, encyclopedia, and documentaries. I loved playing toy guns, tanks, or anything military related. I dislike fantasy themed books and movies such as Dragons, Magic, and etc. Instead, I prepare realistic movies with deep philosophical theme. Although I have to admit that I love cheesy comedy if I was watching it with friends.
Even though I can't say that I enjoy math, but I can pull a 80% without much difficulty. The subjects that I loved the best were English and Philosophy but it could be just that I had two teachers that I liked. I'm really good at computers although not at the level of those hardcore Computer Scientist. I'm probably one step below the hardcore CS guy and many steps above an average person.
I don't like making decision based on "gut" because it doesn't feel "safe". I like to at least do a minimal analysis before I make a decision.
As for the FEELING side, I don't know if it was part of me or I have developed it in the past few years since I had been reading books on Human Psychology and Social Etiquette. When I'm doing peer evaluation or grading someone, I would give that person a good mark even though he/she might not deserve it. I say to myself : "What can I gain by grading fairly or giving a harsh mark?"
When I fill out surveys, I dislike the one where you have 7 choices from Strongly Disagree to Strongly Agree. I prefer Agree/Neither/Disagree.
When I see a begger on the street, my first reaction is to open my wallet. However, this has changed because of parental and social influence where the general consensus is "Why give them money?"
I used to argue with my parents a lot when I was a kid. At those very moments, I truly believe that I was presenting logical arguments but they always dismissed me as "Arguing without reasons". I wish I have recordings so I can see whether I was being illogical or not.
I also have a strong sense in self-protection. When my parents hit me when I was a kid, I would literally fight back even though they are twice as big. I never let bullies walked over me no matter how big they are. I have this weird built-in mechanism where I will never attack anyone physically under any circumstances but I'd go nuts if anyone attacks me.
I don't understand what it means by "INFP dislikes conflicts". Of course, I prefer everyone to be harmonious and happy. Don't everyone feel the same? I wouldn't mind making concession just to make others happy.
I often "zone-out" when I'm driving or walking while chatting with someone. I will keep going forward until the other person comments "where are we/you going?" I'm not very good at symbols or patterns such as number patterns. I also have a hard time remember the maps or figuring out which direction (NWSE) I'm going.
I don't like bothering others. Sometimes I will just swallow the inconvenience than to confront them about it.
Sometimes I think I'm somewhat like an ISTP because I like fixing things, and I also like immediate result. I have many skills but I'm like a jack-of-all-trades.
I also tend to correct others but I've gotten it under control after reading social etiquette books.
I don't think I'm that left-brained because I have a good artistic balance. I'm not good at chess because I don't like to think ahead or analyze it.
I believe in spiritual power, astrology, tarot, UFO, and other things that an average typical INTP don't.
I'm really good at writing essays about deep philosophical issues. I can uncover the essence of an issue. However, sometimes the qualify of my works is compromised by my lackluster writing mechanics.
