When I have met real-life INFP's, with real-life Fi, I am in no way, shape, or form like them. And that's nothing against them at all - I'm just definitely not Fi-dom. So I think you have to be wary when relying on cognitive function tests.

    The cognitive function test always gave me very high Fi, and I can somewhat relate to the Fi descriptions. However, I think there is a difference between relating and testing as such, and actually *embodying* the function in action, in the way that is actually meant by the words 'cognitive function'. ha. If that makes any sense.

    With Myers-Briggs, in my early 20's I tested as INTJ (I think it was due to my college coursework - heavy in the math/sciences, thus I viewed myself as highly rational, logical, intellectual, and what have you), and mid to late 20's as INFJ.

    (I'm just adding my comments here and there because a while ago I was totally confused about my type. But I haven't read enough of your posts to really be able to make the call. Good luck though!)

    Yeah, FP's in general seem way different from me. They all seem soooo nice. I do not see myself that way.

    I appreciate all the feedback!

    Hey, and I just noticed you are a 1w9. That's what I am too!

    It seems to make the most sense for me, although recently someone brought to my attention that 5w4 is another possibility - I haven't researched it enough though to know whether that would truly make sense or not. I DO know, however, that I am not a 4 (many INF's are 4's).

    Yeah, 5w4 is my second closest. I have gotten both on tests but I think I am more 1 than 5.

    1 and 5?

    Fi > Fe/Ti?

    Okay, this is an INTJ. A polite INTJ. Unless she feels more like an NF than an NT.

    Polite? How do you get that? (I'm not disagreeing with you - I say please and thank you like it's my job, just curious).

    You aren't an INTJ.

    Read these profiles, compare and contrast and see which fits you more-

    Types on a team

    INFJ - On A Team
    INTJ - On A Team

    INFJs see potential in people. INTJs see potential in impersonal things.

    The actual profiles

    INFJ
    INTJ

    Te vs Fe

    Extraverted Thinking: Segmenting; organizing for efficiency; systematizing; applying logic; structuring; checking for consequences; monitoring for standards or specifications being met; setting boundaries, guidelines, and parameters; deciding if something is working or not. Sorting out different colors and styles; thinking about the consequences, as in “Since I have to stand all day…”
    Extraverted Feeling: Connecting; considering others and the group—organizing to meet their needs and honor their values and feelings; maintaining societal, organizational, or group values; adjusting to and accommodating others; deciding if something is appropriate or acceptable to others. Considering what would be appropriate for the situation: “One should or shouldn’t wear…” or “People will think…”

    Yeah, I definitely identify more with the INFJ profiles and whatnot but they don't seem too different from INTJ. How can you tell so certainly that I am not INTJ (just curious)?

    It's just a feeling honestly. My best friend is an INFJ, and I've gotten close to a few INTJs. I just know.
