    Default Help me narrow down my type

    I have done tons of tests and I still haven't figured out my type.. I think most of these tests are pretty dumb, questions like "When your phone is ringing, do you wish you could ignore it or do you pick it up right away?" ..what? So I don't trust the tests I've found very much and now I've began reading up on the functions to see wich I identify with the most. I think that Ne and Ti are the ones I use the most, making me NTP. I am not sure though, so I'll ask you knowledgeable folk for help.

    Extraversion - Introversion

    I don't mind being alone.. for a while. After some time spent in solitude I feel like I need to be around people, expressing my ideas and thoughts and get some opinions/validation/counterarguments. But most of the times no one cares or no one will understand, making me look stupid or "weird", wich have led to me keeping quiet most of the time. If you asked someone else, he'd probably say that I'm an introvert. This has been going on my whole life, and basically I have gotten used to feeling alone and spending a great deal of time by myself. And I hate it, it's like I am lonely because other people are too stupid or thinks of me as strange just because I usually see things from a perspective that differ from theirs. Could it be that because all of the time I've spent in solitude, I've developed a strong Ti, making me look like an INTP? I don't know how that works really, I just recently discovered this and haven't learned all about it yet. I'm just guessing. Also I do feel like I get 'energized' by social interacting when the topic of the discussion is interesting, and I identify with the part in the ENTP profile where it says "loves to debate and may even switch sides just for the sake of it".

    Sensing - Intuition

    I've never even considered being an S.. I'm more "head in the clouds", imaginative rather than practical, drawn to symbolism and using it often when I write or speak, always analyzing and interpreting, looking for depth even if it's not there. If my idea of Intuition is correct I'm as N as one can be.

    Thinking - Feeling

    I consider myself a 'thinker' rather than 'feeler'. Mostly because I'm rational when making decisions and always chasing for a logic explanation. But I frequently get overwhelmed by feelings of loneliness and alienation, making me feel sad and depressed.

    Judging - Perceiving

    I'm disorganized, a slacker, spontaneous and a 24/7 procrastinator. I can be assertive and aggressive when I know that I am right and I feel like the person I am talking to is a huge moron. Religious people who are so convinced about their belief that they refuse to see things from my point of view, doesn't use logic and are so self-righteous and hypocritical is one example. But I definatly think that I'm a P; more organized in thought than in real life, hate routine, never finish anything I start and always keeping options open.

    So, what do you think? If it could be any help at all, I'm a 5 on the enneagram, heavy 4 wing.

    Also, while I might enjoy the company of some people, I could still lack a certain respect for them because they frequently expose their own idiocy. They can be fun to hang around with and all but I have no real desire to get to know them or understand them, because they are dumb and extremly superficial.

    nah, you're INTP, and human. Both types are pretty similar, so don't worry about it too much.

    Im gonna guess slightly extroverted ENTP. You seem like you recharge with others and all Thinkers can come across as somewhat emotional at times.

    fixed!

    I'm wondering if interaction with others makes you feel good regardless of I/E.

    It sounds like you are pretty certain you're NTP. Based on the information you've provided, I don't see anything to contradict that. FWIW, a large percentage of introverted NFs are enneagram 4w5, and INTP 5w4's are very common. With not a whole lot to go by, I'd guess:

    1) INTP
    2) INFP
    3) ENTP

    Okay, I've convinced myself: INtP. Liking people, desiring their company, is not inconsistent with being an introvert. If you are often misunderstood or socially isolated, it makes sense that you would actually want more social interaction. OTOH, if you were the belle of the ball, I suspect you'd be really grateful for your occasional time alone. Nearly everyone likes social interaction when the topic of the discussion is interesting; that's not exclusive to extraverts. In fact, introverts -- and especially introverted thinkers -- may find it particularly gratifying, because they're harder to please in social situations.

    My bigger question is F/T. Do you have a preference between Fe/Fi? How about Te/Ti? One of those four should be your primary function.
