can somebody please help me to get certainty about my type?
Few things about me, 25 years old, male, from germany.
At my first MBTI tests, I was classified as ISTJ, later in the most tests as INTJ. But the more I learn about the MBTI system, the more I think I could also be INTP.
Introverted Thinking is definite. But I need some help with the question Intuition or Sensing and especially with Judging or Perceiving.
iN or S:
I like facts, have no problem with learning large amounts of facts in a short time and don't hate routine work. Friends say about me that I have the photographic memory. When I describe sth, I keep on the things that actually are. It often happens that I don't understand others when they use metaphors or irony and take their expressions literally. I am totally uncreative, I hate painting or drawing and it is very hard for me to find accurate presents for christmas or birthdays.
I am mathematician and political scientist.
In my math studies, I was known for sudden splashs of inspiration when solving mathematical problems and I often found (more or less effective) unconventional solutions and algorithms(And I was seldomly exact when finding these - but it was my specialty to sell such a botch job as a correct solution).
In politics, I mostly think about big ideas for reforms of the political or economic systems for the future (rather than practical details), based on the great thinkers of the past. My theories mostly base on a structure of normative, subjective premises rather than on facts. Daily policy is annoying me.
Family and relatives called me "the professor" from the earliest childhood on. I learned calculating, reading and writing with the help of my parents long before entering primary school. My childhood interests were archaeology, physics and astronomy.
I like daydreaming and thinking about big opportunities of wealth and fame in the future.
I never read an instruction manual when I first use electronic devices, same thing when I am cooking.
Concerning J or P, I have to say, I am totally chaotic, but not because I want to, just because I am too clumsy and don't find the time to manage things the right way. On the other hand, I have made exact plans for my future, even until retirement and concrete asset planning. When I was a child, I used to plan my day accurate to a minute and I was very disappointed when these plans didn't work. I don't like surprises and I would never call me spontaneous, but in my teacher job, I am an expert in improvising and reacting to unexpected events in class.
So, could you please help me (perhaps with one or two significant questions) if I am iN or S? And J or P?
