Hi! I'm new here so I want to determine if I really am an INTJ. Most tests show that I'm an INTJ (perhaps about 70-80% of them), while the rest show that I'm an INTP. Actually, I was not typed as an INFJ ever in any of these tests, but I might just been mistyped, considering the fact that INTJ and INFJ share the same dominant function. Also, it has been noted that male INFJ's are usually mistyped as INTJ's, due to, probably, the fact that thinking is often associated with masculine traits.
I will now describe myself with the best of my knowledge :confused:
I am 20 years old, and English is my second language (I was exposed to english when I was about 4-5 years old). I come from the Philippines, by the way, so my 1st language is Filipino/Tagalog.
I love to learn new languages! I am currently learning basic Spanish and Italian. In my childhood, I actually struggled to learn German, Russian, and Japanese by myself, only to give up afterwards after I've lost interest. But I think that I will really pursue studying Spanish and Italian, and perhaps French as well.
I am a business and accountancy major, which I think is the realm of SJ's, or more specifically, the STJ's(?). I strongly feel that I'm not SJ, but I managed to place myself near the top of the class.
I tend to visualize what will happen in the future. This usually comes complete with detailed images, dialogues, how people would react given a certain scenario, etc...
I have this huge, naive ambition to change the world. Like world peace, eradication of poverty, understanding across all cultures and nations, etc
I enjoy my mathematics, statistics and economics classes. I like to play around the underlying theories and concepts. I think that this might be Te, guided by Ni?
I love to read. When I was a child, I used to go to the bookstores and libraries rather than on playgrounds and arcades. My form of punishment would be: "No new books for this month!"
When I have an interest on a certain idea or subject, I immerse totally myself into it--I go to great lengths just to have a fuller understanding of the subject.
I want a certain image for myself, mostly I want to be seen as competent, trustworthy, and sometimes even eccentric. Sometimes, I dunno, I tend to act like a social climber. I generally want myself to be perceived as well-off. Well, this trait of mine is definitely so un-INTJish. It's like Se (?) or perhaps Fe (?).
I am a fan of TV shows Lost, Alias, and How I Met Your Mother. I also love cooking shows.
I cry a lot when the movie or TV show is sad enough. I cry even if there is like an unexpected happy ending. Tears of joy, I guess.
I worry a lot. I like to be prepared. I like to plan. But surprisingly enough, I almost end up late for an appointment or a deadline.
When it comes to video games, I generally like strategic games, mostly war games. I also like games where you can see "improvements"in your character as you progress. I like to achieve goals even when playing.
I love sunsets (my profile pic here) and sunrises, idyllic landscapes. I feel something mystical and often I experience a sense of other-worldliness.
I tend to like songs for their beat and rhythm, not by their lyrics and meaning. I love classical music.
Some of my teachers way back in elementary are irritated when I act as the overbearing know-it-all. I just can't stand people believing and learning wrong ideas.
For the most part, I have thought of myself as fairly introverted. I am more comfortable when I'm alone. But I can speak smoothly through crowds and new acquaintances, that these people would be surprised when I tell them I'm really introverted. Unlike most introverts, I guess, I am sensitive to other's feelings, for instance, when somebody is already bored with what I's saying. I tend to notice expressions and gestures that other people would normally not see.
When meeting a person, I have these weird thoughts and suggestions going in my mind. Like "this person really dislikes this other person, even if he acts favorably in front of him", or "this person is a surefire megalomaniac", things like that.
For some reason, I tend to rise to positions of leadership even when I have not actually vouched myself in being the leader. This usually happens when I encounter new classmates in the first days of class and we have to group ourselves for an activity. They almost unanimously vote me as a leader even if we've met for only a few days in class.
Please help me, folks! I will add later if something else comes up!
