    Default ENTP, INTP, INTJ, or INFP?

    I've had some trouble figuring out my type. I almost always test INTP and I find that it describes me with some accuracy, but I have some doubts about the truth of the matter.

    E vs I

    I have always avoided crowds and prefer being by myself rather than with others, but I've come to realize that this is usually because of the people rather than myself. I just don't find conversations with most people interesting or worth my time. I'm not saying most people aren't intelligent, spending time with them simply isn't fun. I've met a few cool people in my life, many of whom were introverts, and I seemed to want socialization with them more than they wanted socialization with me, which is why I doubt I'm an introvert. If I lived in an island where everyone was an extremely intelligent, open-minded, socialist then I'd be the most extroverted person in the world.

    N vs S

    I am almost certainly an N. I enjoy concepts and ideas instead of concrete facts. There is no way I am an S.

    T vs F

    I have a very logical thinking process and I notice patterns everywhere. Graphs, shapes, and symbols fly through my head whenever I think. I'm not very emotional either. I never cry and usually laugh at overly-dramatic people. I almost never get offended at anything and am usually on the offending side, especially on the internet. However, I tend to get frustrated easily and become emotional in those situations. A couple of weeks ago I had an argument with a creationist and in the middle of a debate I just broke down and started half-screaming expletives and offending their intelligence. I ended by saying that religion is a regressive force in society and that religious worship should be illegal. Obviously, I dont' believe that but I nevertheless said it in the heat of the moment.

    Something else that makes me doubt my T is that I have a very keen sense of other people's motivations and emotions at any given time. I can see right through others. I don't know if this is an F thing or a T thing, since finding out people's moods is sort of a logical process.

    P vs J

    I am very disorganized, am a huge procrastinator, and my room is extroardinarily messy. This points towards me being a P, but I also am impatient with other people; the creationist debate is an example. It seems like I have the worst aspects of both P and J at the same time. I also tend to arrive early to interviews, but I'm not sure that's a very big factor...

    Functions

    I would rate my functions in this order:

    Ni, Ne and Ti, Fi, Te, Si, Fe, Se.

    My understanding of Ni is that it "recycles" ideas and concepts and uses them to help understand another concept, sort of like I used "recycle" in this very sentence. I do this constantly; I learned about dissipation, for example, in economics and I immedeately made the connection with physics, which helped me understand the concept much better. This also happens with every-day activities as well. If that's wrong, then Ni is definately not first on the list.

    Ne and Ti are virtually tied. None of them overpower the other.

    Closing

    Anyway, please help me find my type. Thanks. This was sort of poorly written since I was in a hurry, so let that not distract you from the subject matter.

    edit: recessive vs regressive

    You vibe me INT. There's no way you're an INFP.

    This doesn't really seem to be T or F per se, but using your F function with your intuition preference.

    INTJ, ENTP, and INTP all have different interaction styles. Here's some links on those. After the description, there are four other descriptions which briefly describe how the interaction style manifests itself in each type-

    ENTP is get things going- Get-Things-Going
    INTP is behind the scenes- Behind-the-Scenes
    INTJ is chart the course- Chart-the-Course

    INTP links-

    There's also information on the cognitive processes on this site. Hope that helps.

    How would you differentiate between an INTP and an ENTP?

    ENTPs are insufferable until about 20 years old or so. INTPs are always insufferable.

    In all seriousness, the ENTP will prefer action over thought, the INTP vice versa.

    I also forgot to add something that could maybe point towards ENTP: I love messing with people and making them uncomfortable unless it would somehow jeapordize me. For example, I would walk down an empty street except for one person and say "excuse me" while looking at him and continue walking, talking with myself. On the bus I sometimes break out in laughter after staring at the floor to make the people sitting near me uneasy. Those are pretty bad examples because, like I said before, I am in a hurry, but I hope it gets the general idea across.

    In what way are they insufferable?

    You are a heartless, revoltingly messy, hermetic and antisocial INTP. You pick your nose and eat your own boogers. You haven't showered in 19 days, and probably won't again for at least that long. Sometimes you "forget" to wipe. Your heroes are Ralph Nader and Noam Chomsky.
