    Unhappy I have no type... help me

    So I've been INFP, ENFP and ENTJ. I hated being INFP, I hated less being ENFP, and even less as ENTJ. But I still dont really fit any one type.

    I feel like every type has little special abilities that makes them a type. I feel like any type i try on feels wrong. Like if I were to try on ISFJ id think, "wait, but i have terrible handwriting!". Say I tried INTP, "wait, but im not a math nazi!". Like every type i try on, something doesnt fit.

    Currently I just feel way too gooey to be ENTJ (any detective work of my name would reveal this). Ive never understood this morality problem for the NTJs either.

    I understand that my little stereotypes dont totally 'work'. However, I only use them as an example. Ive been around enough to know that the stereotypes arent totally true.

    --im a lone wolf
    --i can be one of the craziest and loudest people you've ever seen if its the right place (anyone who was here for Vent when i had a microphone knows)
    --i have a condescending attitude towards people
    --i secretly want to be liked
    --i dont like large crowds intermingling for no reason (i hate bars)
    --i dont mind large groups with a purpose (like a meeting, class room, or a dinner)
    --im into some T things...
    --i have some very F guilty pleasures...




    So please, in total review of my time on this site (1000+ posts), what type am I?

    Don't pin yourself on a type, please.
    Just choose the type that fits best as a "first approximation" and add your own comments.

    Example.
    1) Tamske = ENTP
    2) Tamske = 0,6 ENTP + 0,4 INTP (I have this in common with ENTP and that with INTP)
    3) Tamske = 0,45 ENTP + 0,35 INTP + 0,20 ENFP (I have this in common with ENTP, that in common with INTP and that in common with ENFP)

    I can go on. The numbers are approximations

    Actually, most people are moderate. The extremes are exceptions. Don't beat yourself up for being moderate in this or that trait. If logic can't decide, why not use emotion?

    Try to think about how you were as a kid.
    Think about what first was, and what was later added onto your personality.
    Every type can learn basically anything.
    Hell, I even acquired introverted needs and my Introverted Feeling is coming along just fine.
    I like watching romantic movies, even. Doesn't make me an F.

    Keep it simple. Ask yourself type questions when you are in the situation of deciding what to do.
    This isn't an exact science by any measure.

    Mightier than the tread of marching armies is the power of an idea whose time has come

    This is actually what I mean.
    I'm sorry to have expressed it in math language - it's the language I speak the most fluently.

    Take the type with which you share the most characteristics. Add your modifiers.

    well id be an ENTJ who hates people almost as much as the INTPs, but secretly tries to help as much as the ENFJs, and an ENTJ who can be as flexible as the ENTP, but equally is as dependable and non-spontaneous as the ISFJs...

    but all that leaves me at is XXXX...which is unacceptable

    Why? Is it too bland?
    Moderate is not equal to bland!
    I'm a total introvert if you look at a certain set of characteristics (mostly the ones to do with socializing and smalltalk). I'm a total extravert if you look at another set of characteristics (like speaking in public, being open, being enthousiastic,...)
    If you add all this, you'll get close to a zero on the E-I scale. But I'm not "neither introvert nor extravert" - in fact, I'm extreme in BOTH, depending on the situation!

    You must be pretty... stressed out. Remember your childhood? How would you type your former self?

    Babylon, try typing yourself through this thread... it's the 'best fit' method and may work for you.

    You sound like an ENTJ having an Fi meltdown.
