    To be honest, I only just discovered that particular page myself. That wiki is full of wonderful surprises

    That description made no sense to me.

    I think I do Fe and Ti a lot, and the Ni and Ne maybe. But those are still confusing to me....................................

    If you're struggling with the difference between Ni and Ne, then it's unlikely that either of those is your dominant function. If Fe were you're dominant function, you would be an ENFJ, which you're clearly not. That leaves Ti, making you an INTP.

    If you're an intuitive, then I wouldn't place any importance on you're relative aptitudes with Si and Se. This is where I believe that MBTI is at it's weakest. At best the lower order description of preferences work normatively, i.e. they identify the lower order functions people should be developing. For instance, I am much stronger using Se than Si, which is contrary to what MBTI says should be the case. And I am better with either of these than I am with Te. My third best function is Ti, which shouldn't make sense for an ENFP, and my fourth best is Se (ditto).

    On the other hand, there's a strong case to be made that I should be developing Te as a top priority, which is in fact what I'm trying to do.

    Hmm I see. I just have a hard time grasping what exactly all of the cognitive processes mean, and a super hard time trying to figure out exactly how I think.. I've never thought about it til recently.

    Today I spent a whole lot of time at work thinking about these things and I concluded that yeah Ti is what I do I am pretty sure. I do Fe a lot too, but maybe mostly when I am nervous or feeling insecure so that would make sense if it was my inferior function. right?

    Ok I read someone's description of what Ni is and that is definitely not something I'm familiar with.

    INTP I am now for certain.

    Thanks guys for the help!

    You only have 39 posts, friend.

    How do you expect us to know you at all??!?

    :confused:

    Also, you don't decide which type you are, rather you either are, or are not, a type.

    Let me ask you a question.

    Why do you care to know which type you are in the first place?

    What aspect of MBTI resonates with you?

    It is difficult for me to understand people who get into typology/MBTI who do not identify strongly with one type.

    Because I want to understand myself better and this is interesting. Now I looked it up and now I have to find out what type I am!

    I don't know what you mean by resonates with me..

    And I don't understand people that look up types and are able to pick one that fits them best.

    Your posts are really amusing

    It's so fun watching people try to teach people, sometimes the best way to learn is to ignore it all and work it out yourself.
