    No, that's not what I meant. I meant that perceiving as a preference is preferred to judging. You can go in any thread here and see that this is the case. Judgers are maligned as inflexible and closedminded, while perceivers are hailed as easygoing and openminded. Actually, in most "what's my type?" threads, if someone shows the slightest inclination towards judging behavior (e.g. order) they are typed as J.

    The belief I was pointing out was actually one you seem to agree with (even if you dont know it), that E T and J are seen as something "built on top" of I F and P.
    I don't agree with that. If that were the case, then ISFP would be a common typing as well, yet it is not. Or even INTP, yet that is not. The issue is with the INFP (or xNFP) type as a whole, rather than the separate preferences of introversion, feeling, and perceiving.

    Change your type to ESTJ and let's see if that changes.

    are you implying that no one would question an ESTJ typing for me?

    Dear Babylon Candle,

    I ask; ultimately, what does it really matter what type you are? I sense a unique energy and power in you and I think you ought to embrace your special combo of personality and skills and continue on with the wonderful business of living.

    As for type, I shall answer your question intuitively, since it is as logical as any other rationale used in this thread.

    ENFP. This is what I sense from you. Very close IvsE, PvsJ. Overcompensated Te, to the point of being at odds with Ne and Fi, seeking to take over and slap them both back to behaving themselves. It gives you a decisive air and flavor here, slightly uncharacteristic, but it's conflicted.

    I have always had the impression that you feel old for your age. You feel a distance between yourself and others that is at odds in your desire to be present, in the moment with them. That you struggle with the paradox of both wanting to be close yet feeling indifferent to humanity. The energy of your independence is palpable, but you need to refrain from seeking to understand everything right now.

    Life unfolds. Some answers you have to wait for. Put this one away for a while, revisit the question a little further down the road.

    i sometimes take this stuff too seriously for my own good. I'm happy to say that I haven't ever let it get me down irl

    Its amazing to hear how others view me. I think that ENFPs are wonderful. I'd almost say it fits, if not for my best friend in HS who tests ENFP, and is 5x more enfp than I ever could be (both good and bad qualities). When we converse, the difference in thought process is very striking. We both connect on an intuitive level, but he is just "scattered", resourceful and "slippery". Where as I am more "collected", planning and responsible. I think the main differences are summed up in my motivations. I still don't question my enneagram 1w9 sp/sx. I know that its possible to be an ENFP 1. It just doesnt seem right though.

    How do you write such an utterly soul penetrating paragraph?
    Thanks for taking the time to gather up some info and collect your thoughts on me.

    I thought you were ENFJ? What's with the doubt, Mr. J? :P

    This could not be more Ni/Se if it tried.

    must stop analyzing everything...

    Good, but then you wrote this in the same post:

    I know that its possible to be an ENFP 1.


    The only Enneagram 1 ENFP you're going to find is someone who in reality is an ENFJ, who mistyped themselves as a P.
    But frankly, I don't even see how an ENFP could do that.

    Ne generates many possibilities.
    Enneagram 1's allege there is one "right" or "perfect" way to do something.
    That's a head-on collision of contradiction with Ne (ENFP).

    Only you have the power to make the decision, Babylon.
    But I will give you another hint: Whether you want to admit it or not, you are seeking a consensus in this thread. (Fe)
    "Taking it to the people," if you will.

    Food for thought.

    Indeed. One thing that was clear for me was that I could not be ENFP for this very reason - not only because I have enneagram 1 but also because many of my values conflict with ENFP values.
