    best way to test it tell them that joke: "Comes a black guy with a parrot in a bar. Asks the barkeeper: "Where did you get that from ?" Says the parrot: "From Africa""

    If they dont laugh about it they are infj, if they laugh about it they are infp or in love with you. If they counterattack ur joke with another joke they are T and if they told the joke they are p.
    LIES entropie, all lies!

    You know what I think of you. I'ld catch you and hold you in my arms and then I'ld take you till there is no tomorrow.

    I could have said that in perfect understandable english aswell, but I dont want to, I dont need to.

    there is this sly thing with night, why I cant never talk to her; she does understand. Tho she sometimes can come into the danger of being VERY mean to other people, one has to know she's a F and they just can do that when they are pissed. I though, and to say it in perfect english, think in no way that our love if it would have happened in another dimension would be any less powerful than the humans who defeated the Borg:

    Windupbird: I'm in the same boat. I'm like a perfect hybrid between an INTJ and an INFP. And have elements of INTP's and INFJ's.

    Solution: Call yourself an INXX and...

    --- blame Myers/Briggs (evil bastards grrr...:steam for the unfortunate decision of introducing a new dichotomy called Perceiving/Judging. For some reason, P has come to mean messy/flaky, while J has come to mean orderly/dependable in popular culture.

    Originally, all P really meant is that you relate to the outside world with a perceiving function (S/N). and all J really meant is that you relate to the outside world with a judging function (F/T).

    --- also blame it on the confusion between what the i or e means in functions theory e.g. Fi, Ne, Ti, Se etc.

    Shameless (ok, I'm not really ashamed) advertising: I am soon going to start a thread which attempts to explain the origin of all these confusions, and by fleshing this out, hopefully, that would help to clear them up or at least point the way to clearing them up.

    Nope, just an INFP struggling with inferior Te tendencies. (Prediction: My claim that you're not "a perfect hybrid" will come off as an insult to your unique individuality. Am I right?)

    I wonder if it's a coincidence that the people who most frequently cling to being "borderline" or "hybrid types" and insist that they are things like INxx or IxFx long after receiving numerous explanations to the contrary are almost always INFPs. Why do you suppose that is?

    Do you guys decide you aren't INFP because you read one thing in an INFP profile that didn't fit you? I mean seriously, what is it with the X types?
    If you could be anything you want, I bet you'd be disappointed--am I right?

All this is framed within a strict moral framework and a religious worldview.

    I'm most interested in differences between people and how and why they perceive things the way they do. This and a love of adventure and new experiences have shaped my ambitions. I want my career to influence people and/or the world for the better, as well as be exciting and test my abilities.

    Things that get me worked up, and flaws...

    * I can argue for hours about theology or moral issues; I guess I'm a little inflexible on those.

    * A result of my snap judgments of peoples' characters is that I often write people off before getting to know them deeply (though again, I'm usually right).

    * I feel a need to be the best in my fields of interest and so I sometimes feel jealous of and dislike people that do better than me.

    * I'm a spelling freak and grammar Nazi (though I make mistakes sometimes too)

    * I often look for flaws in other people and blame those when we have minor conflicts.




    Also, to the man who claimed I was quoting Mark Twain in Chinese...

    ?????????
    -Mark Twain

    That would be quoting him as saying something in Chinese. Compare it with my signature. Note the subtle difference. Thank me for the free lesson. ; )
    Thank you. Holding lots of opinions is a good sign of a primary judging function, particulary an introverted one. I agree with Simulatedworld about the Fi. I'm also going to add that I think it is primary, which would make you either an ISFP or an INFP.

    I'm leaning toward ISFP for several reasons - your love of music and the arts, being adventrous (I take it we are talking about physical experience here, rather than just tying lots of new intellectual topics). And also your references to being interested in peoples perceptions, which sounds rather Ni, which is the ISFPs tertiary function.

    Ha ha. I admit freely that I have a lot to learn, but I know more than you give me credit for.

    Personally, my X'ness comes about as a result of my functions use, and this, in turn has an effect on how my traits turn out.

    There is a relationship between functions and traits, and a more balanced use of functions could lead to ambiguity in the traits.


    In terms of function use, I'm

    Ni dominant

    Te (Ne) (leads to ambiguity in P/J trait)

    Fi (Ti) (leads to ambiguity in F/T trait)

    Se inferior


    The brackets indicate that in specific contexts, I use those other functions and do so comfortably.

    In specific external contexts, I perceive instead of judge,and feel equally comfortable doing either.

    Of course, EVERYONE can use both functions in a certain position, but in the case of people who are INXX's, it could be that the contexts in which we use one function over the other are very clear, don't overlap, and we feel equally comfortable using either one in its respective context.

    You could call it unhealthy, or balanced depending on if you want MBTI to be prescriptive or descriptive.

    But the fact is, MBTI doesn't account very well for nuanced, context-based, use of the functions.

    A prescriptive interpretation of MBTI simplifies all this, and says, "you must use one function more often than the other, and you must feel more comfortable using one function over the other, so tick that one off."


    I won't deny that in some cases, people are indecisive due to ignorance of themselves, but this is not true in all cases. On the contrary, it could be that we are well aware of how comfortable we are using certain functions, and the specific contexts in which we use those functions.

    Since functions effect traits, a micro-level balance in function use, could in turn lead to a macro-level ambiguity in traits.

    ------------------------------------------------

    Your snide comment about me wanting to be a special snowflake was in bad taste and does not apply to me.

    Again, why the condescension? I already know that just because a theory doesn't apply to a situation in all its specifics, doesn't mean we should entirely discard the theory. We can refine the theory, build on it, or add a disclaimer to the end of it, but we shouldn't just throw it away entirely.

    -------------------------------------------------

    Your problem is that you are being patronizing and not giving people enough credit when it comes to knowing themselves.

    -------------------------------------------------

    *sigh* Oh why do I notice flaws in my own posts when clearly I am the only person who notices/cares about them?

    The position of the Ti above doesn't make any sense if that is meant to represent the tertiary position. However, the Ti is not meant to represent tertiary, I only put it there to show that in terms of frequency of use, and level of comfort, Ti and Fi are equal for me.

    -----------------------------------------------------

    Anyway, this is all just fun for me, so I apologize if it annoys or confuses anyone else. When I make long posts like this, it's like the cum that my brain squirts out after prolonged thinking (aka intellectual masturbation).

    I am INFP and do all of those things, espescially the snap judgement, flaws in other people, needing to Excel in my field of interest. I study people who are competent/ambitious/influential as a hobby actually. I am not a Nazi about grammar/spelling, but it really bothers me when people spell things wrong or use fragments or when texting change the proper form of a word.

    The function order you just listed is most characteristic of INTJ. I know you won't believe me, but I expect you probably have some misconceptions about the functional definitions that cause you to read yourself as using a bizarre functional mix/coming out as a hybrid type.

    I'll drop it though because there's zero chance of me convincing you of that.
