    Angry INFP in denial?

    Am I an INFP in denial?

    I don't know, I relate to all the profiles of types.
    But I could just be duping myself in to believing I'm an extravert. Or Judging.

    I keep telling people just to go with their type and not second guess...hypocritical me!

    Well, plenty of people do change their minds about their types after becoming more familiar with the theory. Plenty of people here have changed their displayed type. Nothing wrong with that. And some people do lie in the middle of the I/E continuum.

    I assume you've looked at the Fi vs. Fe functions. Is there one you relate to better?

    I don't know, I haven't stacked it up. I'll recheck...

    Definitely look into the functions....it's easy to mistakenly identify with what you find attractive, whether that's ENFJ or INFP for you.

    I have a friend who I think is eNFJ, but he thinks he is INFP. I think the INFP profiles just appeal to him, and he's never looked into functions. He sees himself as some kind of tragic loner with a heart of gold, but he's really a sociable person who clearly judges based on external values.

    Being an INFP would mean that you're an Fi dom as opposed to an Fe dom as an ENFJ.

    Do you have a stubborn internal value system which you defend with intensity, or do you feel more comfortable with following social norms to make other people feel comfortable and keep the peace?

    Explain why you think you might be an INFP. I honestly don't know enough about you to even suggest which one you would be. You are also kind of young.

    I have trouble with E/I because I am borderline, but I am definitely an NFP. I just go back and forth between ENFP and INFP.
