    Well yes, in fact anyone who is proficient in both.
    Fi is extremely passionate. (in an internal way).
    Ti is dispassionate.
    (it goes without saying that really answering this requires being honest with yourself)

    I agree with Gabe about being very honest about your inborn inclinations when answering test questions. Which indicators have you taken?

    I would wager a guess that, in general (and in the US, which is what I know), males would have a harder time verifying an F preference and females would have a harder time verifying a T preference. Due mostly to socialization/enculturation.

    I also agree with the above. Most educational/work settings in the US are biased one way or another and in order to get by, we learn to adapt. So in thinking about your responses to the MBTI, you need to focus on *your preference* not on the needs, desires or demands of other people or institutions. What would you *rather* do, if given the choice? When I led MBTI workshops, I used to ask participants to imagine they were on the first day of a very long, all expenses paid vacation, well-rested, when taking the test. You need to eliminate imagined/real/perceived expectations of others from your decision-making re: responses.
