    Default Am I an INTP, INTJ, or ENTP?

    Or even an ENTJ?

    I'm fairly introverted around people, not because I'd rather be alone but because I find most people to be very boring, predictable, and pretentious. I have a fairly abrasive personality and very much enjoy "being an ass" and acting passively aggresively to people who have somehow irritated me. I have met a few interesting people in my life but unfortunately they live on other continents and it's hard to keep in touch. If I was around people like that, I think I'd be fairly extroverted, but I don't really like people in general. I'm very good at public speaking, debating, and having a conversation, however. I can manipulate people easily.

    I have a very strong N, but I'm not sure if it's Ni or Ne. I see connections between seemingly abstract things, but my humor is very Ni and in general I'm having a hard time figuring out the difference between Ni and Ne. Instead of thinking about all the different possibilities, I tend to think about one that makes the most sense to me and delve in that possibility instead of skipping around in a myriad of possibilities, if that makes any sense.

    My T is also strong, but the distinction between Ti and Te seems to be blurred as well. Ti is, from my understanding, more about perfecting and Te is more about making more efficient. I sometimes think about my day and plan out where I will go and what I will do in my head, think about how things could be better and try to minimize the amount of time I have to do a chore or something like that, but other than that I am pure Ti, again, at least from what I understand. I subcategorize, take apart, and deconstruct to find the meanings of things, but I also construct to find the meanings of things, so I'm a little confused in that regard as well.

    In terms of P/J, I'm sort of unorganized in the real world in that I have piles of paper lying around, but I can easily take out what I need and do what I have to do without shuffling through a lot of stuff. I think appearance is important. I tend to take a very long time to make decisions, but take a very short time to make judgements or predictions. I'm very autonomous and individualistic and dislike social norms, and can easily adapt to new situations. I don't like making lists on paper, but I do like making them in my head, but they're more like flexible lists than rigid lists. I don't like following deadlines but I find they help me get things done so I use them. I am not tolerant of other people's differences, meaning I don't really consider other people's opinions as important as mine. I like making decisions not because I like making decisions necessarily, but because I'm afraid someone less competent will make them and that will be disastrous and have negative ramifications on everyone else. I'm one of the most opinionated people ever, especially when debating, although I sometimes debate things I don't really think just for the sake of debating. I'd rather not be a leader if there is already a leader present, but if that leader is incopmetent I will find a way to get him out of power. If there's no one else to be a leader, I will be a leader. On the question of wether or not I'll go down with the ship or jump off of it too soon, I'll probably be stuck on indicisiveness and drown.

    Please help type me, I've been trying to for weeks.

    When people write: "I debate things I don't really think, just for the sake of debating," I want to slap them upside their head.

    That answer at least indicates your non-entpness

    (as in my posts never have a point)

    I mean, tell me if you disagree, but I'm seeing a pretty strong INTP. You're definitely dominant Ti, of that much I'm certain. The only thing that remains is, ISTP or INTP?

    "I have a very strong N, but I'm not sure if it's Ni or Ne. I see connections between seemingly abstract things, but my humor is very Ni and in general I'm having a hard time figuring out the difference between Ni and Ne. Instead of thinking about all the different possibilities, I tend to think about one that makes the most sense to me and delve in that possibility instead of skipping around in a myriad of possibilities, if that makes any sense."

    Well, that just means you're I, not E. You use Ti first, then imagine the possibilities of that internal organization using Ne. I don't really see much Ni at work here, and I'm unfamiliar with the association between Ni and humor. Since you mentioned having difficulty with Ni vs. Ne, I'll explain it to you how my genius ENTP MBTI whiz friend explained it to me.

    Ni desperately always needs an open mind and a new approach. They constantly question themselves and attempt to step further and further outside their mental "box" to try to gain a new perspective. It's almost as if their brain has to literally fly out of their head and paint new picture versions of what it sees from outside the skull. It has been noted that Ni's have soooo much going on inside, they often perplex and astound THEMSELVES with their thought process.

    Ne is less interested in internal growth, and desperately seeks external validation. It easily finds and interprets information from the outside world into an abstract, ideal, and often hilarious form. It needs to see possibilities, correlations, and meanings in order to create ideas and theories.

    Which do you identify with more?

    If you'll humor my guess, I think the humor you're referring to is actually Ne, not Ni. In your case, the Ne flows from the Ti - you have a rigid, logical internal decision process, and then you perceive the result of these decisions in an iNtuitive way.

    Do you not agree with my guess?
