    In college I played around with INFJ, INTJ, and INTP a small bit, but for the most part I've never really questioned my type. Once I read that INFPs are like the tin man from the Wizard of Oz I knew the profile had me pegged. Just like the tin man, INFPs are on a journey to find a heart. We are unable to cry for fear of rusting our armor. Yet, like the tin man, our heart is within us all along.

    Strange question: Do you personify objects? That can be a very Fi dominant trait. I'm not sure if it is just in speech for amusement, but most ones I know do it.

    some examples: "I think this computer doesn't like me" "Word keeps disagreeing with me" "the printer ate my paper" "peppermint chocolates are evil"

    Doesn't everyone do that?

    I this.

    I feel like finding that soft side ascribed to INFPs in profiles was a bit of a journey for me...and it wasn't until I got some perspective on the past and comments from people outside my family that I realized I was a Feeler and not a Thinker. INTP never felt right, and I wrote off MBTI for that reason because I had only a shallow understanding ("Only 16 personality types? How stupid!"). When I returned to MBTI years later, I understood myself and my motivations better, and it was clear I was a Feeler. There was only a little more info needed to confirm that, and then I was sure.

    Like you Jane, the more I read now, the more I see myself as FiNe. Any doubts I had before was from limited understanding.

    I do enjoy calling objects "evil". Deep down, I mean whoever designed it must be a sadist, because it's frustrating the crap out of me.

    Before it is pointed out, I'm well aware that, by questioning my type, I may in fact be confirming it. If no one sees any problem with the way I am typed, I will just take it as a sign and move along having demonstrated and proven my INFPness.
    Simple test. What did you feel/think when you found out you were an INFP?

    a) Wow! I'm special and unique!
    b) Oh no! My life sucks!
    c) Hmmm, I'm not sure. Perhaps I need a second opinion.
    d) No way! That's not me at all!


    If your answer is a), then you're definitely an INFP since no other type will enjoy being one

    If your answer is b) then you're very likely an INFP

    If your answer is c) then there's a good chance you're an INFP

    If your answer is d) then you're just in denial

    I thought the INFP rite of passage was when you bought your first cat/kitten.
