    Default What type am I?

    -I can be quite moody.
    -My favourite music styles are black metal, death metal and post-rock.
    -My favourite genres of Film & TV are drama, comedy and horror.
    -I prefer to organise people for a mutual goal.
    -I can be very pedantic.
    -I find it hard to make new friends, and tend to stick to a few friendships for a very long time.
    -I suffer from insomnia occasionally.
    -I do not enjoy sports and practical activities, I much prefer theoretical and academic ventures.
    -I am not very creative, but greatly appreciate and enjoy others' creative efforts.
    -I am very interested in alternate realities and supernatural beings.
    -I am seeking to become a film critic when I'm older.
    -I very much enjoy structuring and organising my life and environment, but on the contrary I'm usually fairly flexible and laid-back, and like to take things as they come.
    -I get very emotional about films or music that I enjoy thoroughly; I have been known to cry during movies on quite a few occasions, because I can become very attached to the characters.
    -I have a very emotional outlook on life and am deeply hurt when something bad happens to someone that I (truly) care about.
    -My main interests are listening to, collecting, observing and critiquing music (I write reviews for a site called rateyourmusic.com, here's a link to my reviews: Midders's reviews - Rate Your Music), posting in Internet forums and observing nature.
    -My favourite (musical) artists are Sacramentum, Death and Carcass. I do not have favourite actors, singers, writers or otherwise entertainment-affiliated individuals.
    -I am described as weird, opinionated, obsessive, caring and intellectual by others. I would describe myself as idealistic, perfectionistic and obsessive.
    -I am fairly shy when meeting new people, but not overly anxious or reserved.
    -I can be quite a social animal. I can be very talkative, initiating and outspoken when I need to be.
    -I'm very perfectionistic and borderline OCD about many things, namely the tidiness of my room and computer area, and the order in which I listen to albums or watch films. Other wise, I am pretty laid-back and flexible.
    -I can be very emotionally sensitive, either contemplating conflict in a depressed way for days after the conflict situation, or bursting out randomly and irrationally in expressions of bad temper.

    My type on my profile is listed as INTP because I've tested as it on socionics.com, and because each trait is the closest to me that I believe it is. This doesn't change the fact that I am incredibly doubtful of my type, and would very much appreciate a second opinion based on what I have written. Please feel free to ask any additional questions as required.

    Cheers.

    Well, first of all, I think Socionics INTp is MBTI INTJ.

    However, I think you're an INFJ.

    Most socionics INTp's are INTJ in MBTI terms.

    Your self-description sounds INTJ to me.
    If you could be anything you want, I bet you'd be disappointed--am I right?

    I thought INTJ...except for how emotional this person insists s/he is. Wouldn't an INTJ downplay that, even if it were true?

    What don't I get?

    Come to think of it, he is awfully aware of his own emotions for an INTJ.

    Maybe INFJ is a better guess.

    For your first statement, on socionics.com it says that people that have trouble distinguishing between T and F (definitely me), are p type on both sides, which is why I don't believe I'm MBTI INTJ. If I'm a thinkint type, I'd say I would be an INTP on both ends of the scale.

    Your typing of INFJ is interesting though, I'll look into it.

    But the bolded...sounds like Fi. I actually contemplated Fi in the statement he made "people I (truly) care about." Fi is always making little distinctions like that.

    So to the OP: this emotional awareness you possess...is it easy to express it to others, or is this mostly when you are alone and/or thoughts you hold inside?

    I've read INTJs as describing themselves as feeling certain things that they were sure other people were aware of, only to realize that those other people, in truth, had no idea how INTJ felt because INTJs expressions were so subtle.

    If the INTJ downplaying is true, then that isn't me, because I like to talk about feelings and emotions and enjoy revealing my emotional side.

    No, I find it quite difficult to actually explain my emotions correctly and succinctly. I am very much up for it and by no means afraid of it, but a lot of the time I find that I did it in an incorrect or irrational matter. I'm much more comfortable with expressing my logical thoughts. It's not that I prefer to, just that I seem to be better at it.
