    Default INTJ or INFJ?

    My dad took a test on "hummanetrics" sp? he tested INTJ, but only 1% on the thinking T scale. That is pretty low. The other scores fit.

    The thing is he is very critical, very disorganized (at home, he is a packrat) doesnt like to through things away, yet in his work (a surgon) he is very meticlous, and when he comes home he is tired and he gives orders a lot, and just acts mad a mean. He's kinda OCD about things in general. My mom used to call him the dictator. LOL. Anyway. I thought he was an INTP the whole time, due to his hoarding and ocd thing, but I guess not.

    Do any INTJ's or INFJ's have any opinions?
    I read this quote on a personality page...
    He could just have a very weak T?
    " Like other INFJs, your workplace should be one of creatively and independence. You most likely have a natural affinity for art and the sciences, as well as being found in service orientated positions. You should avoid working with very detailed tasks, or else you be in the other extreme, where you are working so meticulously you cannot see the big picture and can be highly critical of others who are not being as meticulous."

    Who cares? Your dad's officially friend zoned because he's a boring uggie nerd.
    Have a nice day!

    Default INTJ personality? not sure

    I am trying to figure out if my dad is an INTJ. He took a test online (hummanetrics) and tested INTJ, but only tested 1% T, which is a low score.

    He is not like other INTJ's i have met, but he is different that is for sure.
    I always thought he was an INTP, then and ISTP, then INFJ???...

    He is very functionaly, works hard at his job, and is meticulous at his work (a surgon) he doesn't like to talk a lot, at all, he likes to garden and do lawn work, on the weekends, he loves birds, and nature. He likes to stay at home and not travel. When want's something done he mainly gives orders, do this do that, and he has a temper, he gets upset a lot (not like a thinker would) he easily gets mad at things and has a controlling nature, but doesn't really care. He says, he doesn't care a lot. He says he want's others to be independent but he does a lot of "spoon feeding" in terms of telling people how they should do things the "right way" all the time. He's got some hoarding issues, in that he doesn't like to throw away things, like plastic bottles, objects, clothes, even, expired food, he will stretch everything out, and use out of junk. He will buy 5 pairs of the same pants if he likes them. The house is like a warehouse, things in the basement are collecting dust from 20 years ago. He is intelligent and smart, but at times, totally OCD, bossy, and will kill you if you touch his stuff.

    He has good intentions and helps everyone, he supports a lot of his family members, and works very hard, and still takes care of a lot of people, in his extended family. It's just hard to be around him. He has mellowed a tiny bit.

    Can any INTJ's relate? is this a symptom of having an inferior T function? Or just an unbalanced personality?

    why did somone move my thread...
    and also, the uggies and nerdies comment. was about, people that I would friend zone. Someone who was really super ugie, and super nerdie. Why does that bother ya?
    I am being honest.

    How undiplomatic of my, how immature of me I guess, I'm supposed to be empathetic and caring of human needs all the time. (no one can do that 24/7) This is how I really feel. Not about all INTJ's some are attractive and freaking smart and awsome! Like my geology professor, was great but of course, he was engaged. He was totally sarcastic, and witty. I love INTJ's just not super butt ass ugies and nerdie antisocial people in general. ya dig-

    EDIT:and he was HOT!

    Anyone have any ideas? INTJ? Sound familiar?
    I'm feeling a bit discourage by the responses. But hey someone's butt hurts!

    We can do better.

    DO you think its possible for an INTJ to be the way I described. I keep feeling like he may have fudged the test results. Also, my brother and I are both NFP's where the heck did we come from. If my dad is INTJ and mom is ISTJ, wha?

    I always thought he was an S, actually I never really knew him...
    he doesn't like to talk about himself, and he hates to explain things, but he is very repetitive. Also he is from another country, so English is second, but loves to read and says he loves words...
    When I try to develop a bond with him he gets distant, like I should already know about it. And he is very temperamental.

    INTx for sure. INTJs do have bad tempers...
    Between that cigarillo and sticking my finger down my throat to see if I could DT, I feel like puking RN.

    Most of this including the pants thing sounds just like my INTJ dad
