    The wall of Te that I get when I debate with Babylon is ridiculous, I can't see him as an INFP. No matter how anyone tries, they can't change his position. He's always right. I always thought he was an ESTJ with hyperactive Ne.

    That's not Te at all. Refusing to change your position even in light of very convincing and logical arguments is more Fi

    Ok, I don't think anyone can figure this out except for himself.

    I wonder why dropping the question for a couple of months and then returning to it does not seem to be an option for him. I'm 90% sure it would help. If it doesn't, accept that MBTI isn't an incontrovertible system to begin with.

    I'm still guessing ENtJ though.

    Just some random thoughts...

    My vote, based on limited exposure is for INFP. Like others suggested, IMHO, the OP suggests being led by Fi and not Ne.

    One clear distinguishing characteristic I've noticed between INFPs and ENFPs in real life (small sample but seems to work so far):
    The defiant individualism is something that surrounds all the INFPs I've had the pleasure of knowing in real life, much more than ENFPs. While ENFPs are happy to think of people as united behind a cause, being one among them, taking on part of another's view to show solidarity....the INFPs I know wouldn't dream of it. If they've decided to join a cause, it's in the most unique way ever...It doesn't reflect on their commitment or the cause but they have to personalize it in a way that ENFPs do not. They hate being boxed more than anyone I know. For me, as an ENFP, it's more important that I've considered all the angles for the options before picking a side. I'm also more likely to change my opinion in the light of new information than an INFP. They seem to value steadfastness more than adaptability.

    A less developed Fe function could explain the social stuff...

    I third.

    Also, Babylon, whatever your MBTI type, your taking time to think about how you approach things will be valuable I'm sure. For now, let's just call you the introspective sort, shall we?

    This is spectacular wisdom.

    I feel self discovery is a process that has to pay off in some way, shape, or form.

    Before you can accomplish truly great things, it is firsty necessary to know thyself.

    I've read posts of yours where the topics varied from weightlifting/bodybuilding to advice as to how to obtain the best education/internship possible to be a young, successful person.

    In the weightlfting thread it was apparent that you knew what you were talking about, but came off a little rough around the edges. Offering the advice as to how to be successful though was rather altruistic. So, you've got some sort of balance going on, the finite details of which you are currently seeking.

    My guess, is that you're EXTX. I'm a major extrovert and I hate going to bars and shitty, overcrowded places. I love people, but that doesn't mean I love being packed into a small space with a bunch of random folks. People don't seem to drain you, and isn't that a key factor of introversion, is inevitably needing to "re-charge" after too much social stimulation? So that's why I guess "E."

    You have a temper but you wield it logically. That has "T" written all over it. I have a great temper, but I am extremely impatient. I'm not pissed, but I am in a hurry, and I'm not going to spend time on things I don't need/want to.

    Between N/S and I have to favor "N." You're in the here and now but you have obviously spent alot of time thinking on shit that is far beyond immediacy, thus my vote on "N."

    Regarding J/P, I have no idea. Your ability to write out long passages with regularity takes away from a vote of ENTP. That just seems more ENTJ. Are you timely or late IRL? Do you see things in black & white or shades of grey?
    ----------------
    I have no idea what type you are, but you seem like a fellow that has a damn good brain in your head and that you have a desire to know yourself better.

    I don't what the significance of knowing your MBTI type is, but I can tell you that I think knowing yourself as a person is far more useful than knowing your MBTI type + any associated stereotypical traits/behaviors likely to be a part of your persona.

    MBTI is a great tool. I know I have grown via discovering my MBTI type, identifying more clearly what my natural gifts and shortcomings are, and assessing how that all fit in with my overall context of myself.

    I am without a doubt a full blown ESTP, but I have a good number of differences from the most popular ESTP type descriptions. Knowing I'm Enneagram 7w8 has also proven interesting and useful. MBTI and Enneagram considered either independently or together, cannot speak to the totality of me as a person. I am thankful I understand the other aspects of my mental/spiritual composition well enough so that knowledge of MBTI and Ennegram integrated nicely into the existing knowledge base and implementation that is Halla.

    HOMEWORK:
    ------------

    To me, these are important questions that you need to have a solid answer for if you truly know yourself. Please note that this list is not complete...

    (1) What do you want to do with your life?

    (2) Why?

    (3) Are you OK with that?

    (4) Are you doing everything possible to maximize that likelihood as becoming your reality?

    (5) Are you happy with yourself?

    (6) If yes, great! If not, why?

    (7) What needs to change for you to go from where you are now to where you wish to be?

    (8) When do you start your journey?

    Take care, Bro.

    Well then, I wasn't thinking about that in reference to Babylon... the way he goes about it is seemingly a logical process in his head. As to why I'm wrong.

    But yes, now that I think about it that sounds more like Fi taking it's toll on Te, or the other way around.

    Ironic though that I like to change my position based on the logic presented by others, lol.

    Eh, I don't know. Some people are way different as kids due to environmental factors. How can you prove that it is your core self? How do you define your core self? That's hard.

    Yeah, I'm not buying it as being an exclusively Fi thing. That's a person and ego thing. I've known plenty of TJs and TPs so caught up in their need to be right that they won't listen to the potential of them being wrong.

    In this case, I'm not presuming Babylon falls into that category. I just don't think Blackcat's experience offers a sure fire answer.

    I think it would be kind of cool to be an ESTJ with hyperactive Ne. Just saying.

    In all seriousness, though, I know your frustration with this type thing. BLAH....There ain't no type...which means there is one, but it's nebulous, and kind of like a void that defines what's around it, and all that good crap that no one knows what the hell your talking about.....Yeah, that's the world of type.

    So not knowing what you are may be a good sign.
