Ok, well... I thought I was an INFP. So, for me this becomes a matter of determining what my innate behaviors are. Fi makes sense to me in terms of personal ethics, but so does Fe. We can't grasp an ethic without an external threshold, even if we are learning personal ethics through subjective experience. I can definitely identify with Ni - I am highly analytical and I don't invest in the opinions of others' too strongly because perspective is a subjective phenomenon; but I can also see how this might be a trademark of Fi. Ne thinks "out of the box", and it avoids the underlying principles of a thing by relating it to something else. I suppose I can relate to this: for instance, an atom is like a solar system because they are both composed of objects that spin in ellipses. So, as systems, they are fundamentally similar in a way. Ni or Ne? Then there's the difference between Te and Ti. Te wishes to understand the utility of a thing or a system in objective terms, while Ti would rather analyze the properties of a thing or a system for further use (though it would also claim to be objective). To a Ti user, a system can be internally experimented with, while a Te user needs the system to be empirically evident and clarified. I've read many books written by INTJs, and I definitely understand this Te sentiment, even in the realm of MBTI. In fact, when I first learned about MBTI, I understood that it could not be empirically correct; simply because of the flawed nature of communication. Nothing is "correct" because we aren't of one mind to understand an object. Then we come to Si, which is the only thing that keeps me grounded with the opinion of INFP. I frequently flash back to yesterday or another period of time in an effort to analyze the context of the past situation. (If that makes sense). For instance, a few years back I had a teacher who would habitually speak with students at the mens' urinal. This was unpleasant, and I often wondered why he would do such a thing.
So, if I identify with Fi and Ni and Te, does this mean I am an ISFP? Or is my identification of Ni just a synthesis of Fi+Ne+Te with the understanding of "the unknowable"? Or am I an INFJ, or INTP, or an INFP?... INTJ?
I don't even know why I care at this point.
