    Question INTJ or INTP? or even something else?

    I always thought I was INTJ but am having doubts. First off, I know very little about the cognitive functions and the test I took didn't run properly, but am I right in thinking you have to add up the boxes ticked for how much things apply to you to get what your functions are and then the highest for each is what you get? I got

    se - 5
    si - 12
    te - 14
    ti - 22
    fe - 10
    fi - 20
    ne - 16
    ni - 11

    so basically, my functions are

    ti
    fi
    si
    ne

    and that doesn't directly correlate to anything, but it seems pretty close to intp. I might have got the extra i because I'm very introverted, but I don't know. Also, I was a little confused by some of the statements so I could have mistakes there. Anyway, on the mbti test, I always come up as INTJ, though judging is my least prevelant. I get like 15 or something usually. I find that I tend to fit more closely with INTJ profile, though I do have some traits of INTP such as laziness and doubting myself (although that could be due to my anxiety, which could have something to do with my introversion). Anyway, I just wanted to know what type do you think I am and am I taking this test correctly?

    You should look into the many threads about the differences between the two. I consider these two types very different. It's a boss(INTJ) and an idler(INTP).



    Physical Implementation or Thought construction?

    Leader or Adviser?

    INTJs don't tend to lead unless they feel it is necessary. I myself am no good at telling people what to do and being listened to.

    ^I was waiting for this. I = solitary (more or less).

    Not that INTJ's can't be leaders of people, but it would almost be like saying that extroverts are studious. They can be if they want to be, but it may not come as natural as it does for an introvert.

    When all else fails, an INTJ will step up and lead.
    Weathergirl: District 38 is sunny. Slight rock showers this morning. Chance of rock showers into the afternoon—20 percent. District 39 is cloudy. Chance of rock showers this afternoon—10 percent.
    Edward: Bebop here here! Alright woo hoo!
    Weathergirl: Chance of rock showers today upgraded to 90 percent.
    Edward: Really.

    Holy mother of God. When INTJs (real ones) say you to do something you don't feel like questioning them ever. Lead you they can.

    INTP

    INTJs wouldn't have doubts as to what there type is. Decisive they are. Wouldn't care and doesn't believe that others would be better at telling them what their type is.

    This is a ridiculous statement.
