    Default INFJ/INTJ Flipflopping....

    One thing that tends to bother me a bit is that some days I score INFJ on a Myer's Briggs Temperament indicator, then another day, I score INTJ. I trust my brains and logic more in making decisions, but I am quite emotionally sensitive. I have kind of cynical views towards society, which would place me on the Thinker side of the fence. Despite this, I'm warm towards others. I tend to put schoolwork before socializing. I'm a science nerd, and enjoy science fiction. I have a knack for technology. Despite this, I can also be an old-fashioned romantic and have exalting moments of reverie while listening to music I enjoy.

    Seriously, what the heck am I? Some weird INFJ/INTJ hybrid?

    Do you easily *empathize* with others, or do you just like to be on good terms with people? Do emotional people sometimes baffle you?

    My guess, based solely on avatar and screenname is that you're just a very analytical INFJ, perhaps. We're easily the most "T" of the Fs.
    I think I think more than you think I think.

    To be honest, I'm currently doubting whether I'm INFP, INTP or INxP ...

    The reason why I've posted: I'm especially curious how 'x' types are integrated into the framework of Jungian functions.

    The whole enneagram thing is also quite popular around here, so maybe you should give it a try. Its profile descriptions can be strangely accurate sometimes.

    They aren't.

    My impression of you is INFJ.

    You could be an INFJ with strong tertiary Ti, or an INTJ with strong tertiary Fi. That's what's probably going on here.

    I'm going to guess that you're probably INFJ, though.

    However, you should study the difference between Ti and Te to determine which kind of thinking more strongly applies to you.

    If Krissy = female, you're an INTJ. Te rule of thumb = when T/F is is doubt, the answer is the letter which contradicts cultural indoctrination

    Seriously--you sound INTJ to me. INTJs are often sensitive and extremely vulnerable though Gawd forbid others see this on the inside and benevolent (if not emotionally demonstrative) towards others.

    Yeah sorry for the bluntness there, but X types can't really exist. :P Most of the time when people think that they're using functions out of their function order proficiently, it's just the manifestation of two functions working together. Or just a shadow function thing.

    But point being. If you were INXP that would mean that your default response to things would be both Fi and Ti... like. Those would be your lifestyles. And that just can't happen.

    Functions can be "strong" in a sense that you can use the ones outside of your function order, but the way you naturally respond to situations etc will be within the default one.

    I empathize with people pretty well and like to be on good terms with them. Despite this, people that are gushingly emotional tend to baffle me. I've dated guys that were much more emotional than I am, and I'd be wondering why they were acting so gushingly emotional so quickly in the relationship! It did not make sense to me because it was early in the relationship. I like to keep things balanced.

    I can be very analytical, to a fault even. I analyze practically everything. Goes with being inquisitive and curious about the world around me.

    I have read though that INFJs are hard to peg in a particular career, but they say that some INFJs latch onto science because of the dominant iNtuition function (gives them the ability to understand abstract theories).

    What makes an INFJ more "T" than an ENFP, in your opinion?
