Hi Vagrant Farce,
I have read all of this information that you provided, and I think that IFP applies more than ITP.
The bolded is a good description of how I view the world. I really want everyone to be happy, to use their talents, and to to avoid retribution. Although I like to be take things and ideas apart to figure out what needs to be fixed, I also like joy and happiness and to accept people just as they are, without having the urge to change them.
I don't really know what this means in terms of my personality type but, right now, I am leaning toward isfp, rather than istp. I don't think that it's a different type altogether because I don't see myself as an "E" type or an "N" type.
I'd very much like your input.
"For Introverted Feelers, life is a constant challenge to remain in harmony with an emotional ideal. To them the world is an ever-evolving torrent of unique, living things persuing their own emotional needs. As a result, Introverted Feelers have a naturally empathic worldview, and can easily assess whether a person's behaviour is emotionally congruent. They approach everything from an emotional standpoint - how can I relate to this emotionally? What need does this reflect that I can identify? This sort of non-judgemental thinking allows IFPs to easily empathize with anyone they come across, and they naturally favour mercy and forgiveness over retribution."
