    Default Type confusion...

    I arrived thinking I knew my type and now I am as confused as ever!

    I am going to share my test results and then some things about me I think may be relevant. I would love some help along my journey :-)

    Thanks to all who participate! luna~

    Based on your ranked responses to the 120 phrases...

    - Fi

    - Ni

    - Fe

    - Si

    - Se

    - Ne

    - Te

    - Ti

    Your Possible Type Code
    According to the traditional sorting method of finding the most-used functional pairs (such as Fi-Ne), your type might be:
    Possible result: INFJ

    We are also trying a new sorting method to try to indicate best-fit type. This method is experimental and may not match your type.
    Possible result: INFJ

    Your Developmental Curve
    This model attempts to graph a 'developmental curve'. Theoretically, people should choose simpler, less sophisticated aspects of the cognitive processes more often than they choose complex, more sophisticated aspects. The simpler aspects of each process are necessary to perform the more sophisticated aspects! However, because the phrases are in development, this measure has questionable validity.

    Your self-assessment curve = -3.1

    -- A curve less than 0 indicates you checked simpler phrases more often than sophisticated ones. This is expected, although a particularly low number (more than -10) might happen if the phrases were particularly unclear to you, or if you under-estimated your abilities.

    -- A curve greater than 0 indicates you checked sophisticed phrases more often than simpler ones. This would be counter to a developmental model and might happen if many phrases are badly written or if you have over-estimated your capabilities.

    Your Most-Used Processes
    Based on your response, these are your top three cognitive processes in use:

    Fi : Evaluating; considering importance and worth; reviewing for incongruity; evaluating something based on the truths on which it is based; clarifying values to achieve accord; deciding if something is of significance and worth standing up for.
    Ni : Foreseeing implications and likely effects without external data; realizing 'what will be'; conceptualizing new ways of seeing things; envisioning transformations; getting an image of profound meaning or far-reaching symbols.
    Fe : Connecting; considering others and the group—organizing to meet their needs and honor their values and feelings; maintaining societal, organizational, or group values; adjusting and accommodating others; deciding if something is appropriate or acceptable to others.

    Your Developmental Report
    Your pattern of responses indicates a developmental level in each cognitive processes. Since this is experimental, this report may be in error.

    Ti,Te,Se,Ne
    You notice this process and enjoy when others use it but only occassionally find yourself engaging in it. You may marvel at others who do it very well. It doesn't appear useful to you personally and can annoy you if others use it too much.
    Si
    You value this process as a helpful aid, even if you do not engage it that often. You trust it contributes to life, particularly when done by others who do the process well. You might recruit others to help you do this process for you.
    Fe
    You actively use this process in your daily life as a useful tool or helpful aid. You could live without it but use definitely contributes to the what you do and who you are. You can work with others using this process, usually in a support role.
    Ni
    You create value, aid others and get things done everyday using this process. You function well here, know all the ins and outs, strengths and limits of this process. You have made this process your own, something personal and unique to you.
    Fi
    You sustain and grow yourself and those around you long-term through this process. You are at your best, your peak creative and leadership moments when engaged in this process. This is a lead role; it is who you are and what you truly do.

    Perceiving (P) 51.35% Judging (J) 48.65%

    Your type is: INFP

    INFP - "Questor". High capacity for caring. Emotional face to the world. High sense of honor derived from internal values. 4.4% of total population.

    I took it again a little while later (to see how accurate this was for me) and got:

    Jung Test Results

    Based on the links Zarathustra (who has been a great help to me I might add) sent me...

    INFJ...I do live in a world of hidden meanings and possibilities! I see meaning everywhere (lunalove, for example, represents lunalovegood and my admiration for her superficially...on a deeper level it represents my current exploration of the moon and its connection to women. love because I believe love is truth...and I'm not going into the full depth here either!) I do love art and creativity, and I do believe I am intuitive and perceptive (and have been told so). *blushing*

    I am consistently disorganized (ADD/ADHD). I am do trust my intuition though I have not given thought to how often it is accurate (my dad has always said I am very perceptive and I can tell who is good/bad in a room full of people...).

    I used to not hold back so much. I have become more secretive as an adult. I used to be quite open with anyone who would listen or I felt could help me (I had traumas early in life). I'm not sure how this correlates? I know that traumas often make someone look like a different type...

    The idea of hurting another living creature is quite painful to me. Even online, when people are arguing it upsets me. :p My husband used to tease me because anytime I would try and write a book, I had a tough time writing a conflict! lol (I am better about this now...)

    I do not trust my own instincts above all else. As a 6w5, i seek outside confirmation and approval for things. I may have a strong intuition about something, but I can ignore it (and then get sick, literally), if it means someone will approve of me. (So unhealthy...and something I am making changes on as I write this!!)

    I am not a parent yet so this remains a mystery

    The big picture and I are natural enemies...though I am not very good at details like excel. I prefer writing, the arts, singing, helping others, etc.

    Which one of those is more you?

    INFP...

    Not sure how I process things, but I do know that how things fit into my personal value system is important to me (if they mean morals and values? Not sure about this?)

    I relate to being a perfectionist and to making the world a better place (I hope I do?!), but I am not very driven with goals. (I just want to write a published novel, which I am lazy about and help peoplelove themselves. But I do have specific goals or much of a career, etc.).

    I have a hard time knowing if I am more emotional or in my head? Any tips on how to figure that out? I know I feel things deeply, but I also think in my head a lot. I would say they are at conflict for me actually!

    I am more apt to cry than get angry. I feel more comfortable with that emotion. I do however feel that sometimes I feel so much it's embarrassing and I can't control it. I taught kindergarten and I cried at their graduation...most of the parents weren't even crying!

    I don't think I'm laid back ever! lol Maybe I am misunderstanding? I am a very serious person most of the time...I am learning to laugh more! :p

    That's me with life maintenance...lol. Love my ADD!

    Like I said, my mind and heart are often in conflict (it's my 5 wing!) My emotions are quite powerful and overwhelming...but my "head voice" has a strong say too...

    Is that part of my problem? My ideals are too high? If I am not good at something straight away, I get frustrated. Is that INFP?

    I enjoy expressing myself verbally if I am close to someone or if I feel I ca help them. I do enjoy writing though...

    Fi : Evaluating; considering importance and worth; reviewing for incongruity; evaluating something based on the truths on which it is based; clarifying values to achieve accord; deciding if something is of significance and worth standing up for.

    Fi sounds like it could be me. It is quite important for me to look for incongruity and evaluate things on a truth basis. I intuitively seek out whether a person is superficial, lying, unauthentic, etc. And I do search for significance and something to stand up for (I usually do this independently though I am happy to inspire others if they care to join me. I do not go for groups that are aggressive in their quest for making the world a better place...).

    I do not relate to Ni accept that I do visualize positive transformation for humanity and those close to me.

    Fe sounds like me. I am not necessarily connected to the group (I would prefer to observe than jump in and connect, unless it is for the sake of bringing people together, and even then I will not participate much, simply observe), and I often will accommodate others. I will participate in groups if I have a specific purpose/job to do...but I will do that job without hanging out. I am deeply concerned about making others happy, making others feel good, and gaining others approval (which is why I believe I am a 6 on the enneagram, if that helps).

    Thanks Trinity

    Weird

    Should still be there

    The question is what is more you, more comfortable, most natural: Fi, Ni or Fe? Have you looked into functions in detail?

    Hi Trinity,

    I just found your post and then responded to it above Thanks!

    I looked into functions but did not save my results (I am learning this is a good thing to do) :p Do you have some links/suggestions in that arena? Thanks :-)

    luna~

    P.S. Are you name after Trinity from the Matrix?
