For about five years now I've flipped flopped between three of the MBTI types, all three of them being different temperaments even, and also very certain that none of the other types of each temperament relate to me.
These types being INTP, INFP, and ISTP.
All three of the usual type descriptions relate to me very well, with confusion on the INFP, the fluffy descriptions never sat well with me. So I took it deeper and went to Jung for advice, and his description of Fi resonated very well, but so did the Ti descriptions.
I have taken the cognitive strengths test. I scored with extremely well usage for Ne, with Se following very closely. Ti and Fi were the same, but came out with the exact same score as each other. This test merely showed me that my Ne maybe more slightly more dominant than the Se. But what of Ti and Fi?
I suppose I can say facts that may help or not.
I hate auto mechanics. Then again, with practically no knowledge of computers, I managed to gain a reputation as a computer technician just from being able to figure things out with a trial and error approach anytime someone asked for help. Fantastic with my hands, someone once told me I should be a surgeon, and I've always been an exceptional athlete, but never a team player, so I shied away from sports. I'm also a great driver, even though I pay absolutely no attention to the road, constantly messing with my radio, making sure I'm not smoking into my filter of the cigarette, texting, whatever. But on that note, a car has literally flipped and did a barrel roll in front of me, and I hadn't noticed, I still have no memory of it happening, even with my friend in the car yelling at me and pointing "what was that!"
I have always been regarded as a very excellent writer, but it has to be in a completely free form format, such as blogs or whatnot. I've also enjoyed reading my entire life, and love a fantasy setting, especially when there's a strong philosophical theme, or moral theme. I am constantly in tune with the way people are feeling, if someone around me is depressed, I notice, and it affects me greatly. If someone is angry, the same.
Is that last point an inferior Fe in action? Or possibly an Fi thing?
When something grating on my mental well being, I will never tell anyone. Anything that makes me upset in anyway, I get completely inwardly focused until it is under control. I have never been able to express myself to another person in anyway about matters that are currently bothering me. This seems to resonate well with Jung's description with Fi, as Fi dominants will guard their feelings very closely, and tend to have more of a stoic persona.
Not sure if this means much, but I have always had an exceptional talent with math, but completely lacking the patience for it, until I got to calculus or trigonometry. I found a new joy in the world, these subjects opened up a completely new perspective on math, it was no longer boring, but even a fun way to spend my time.
Albert Einstein has always been one of my favorite role models, and I love his philosophies on humanity and ethics especially.
Fictional role models I relate to on a deep level would be Drizzt Do'Urden, who I believe is an INFP, for those of you who know of him. Another Being Spike Spiegal, who I believe is ISTP, for those of you who know of him. Anyone who watched Death Note would know of L, my favorite character of that show, who seemed to be very INTP.
I love thinking through ethics and philosophy, which most of my writing revolves around. I love theories, hence my constant obsession with MBTI. My bookshelf is littered with math books, psychology (for focus on Jung especially, very few Freudian books), a large collection of fantasy themed books.
Of my friends who know of MBTI, I have a friend who believes I'm INTP, and friend who believes I'm INFP, I also act accordingly when in the presence of one or another, not sure why I do that.
Since there's simply too much text in this post, one more bit of info. I believe with a fair amount of certainty that I an Enneagram type 5, with a possible 4 wing, though there was a time I was seriously thinking I was a type 9.
Anyways, too long I know. Don't tell me to take the tests, I can get whatever score I want, and can trick myself into believing some of my own bias, though aware of it, I'm not confident that I'm completely honest with myself.
