    Default INFJ or ENFJ?

    Just wondering about someone I know as to which category she falls into- she's definitley an xNFJ and has read the descriptions and feels that they both apply

    for a few details

    - she was almost painfully shy as a child, but has grown to be less so
    - she's slow to anger, but when angered stays angry for a while
    - she tends to be paranoid about other's motives
    - she reads strange contexts into things that people say
    - she has a degree in creative writing with a specialization in poetry
    - as a hobby, she writes and preforms songs, usually folk... she has to be pretty drunk/high to preform for anyone else
    - she is very passionate about social justice issues
    - she claims to hate humanity, but cries at movies and television programs
    - she loves to read, but is a very slow reader
    - she's somewhat convinced that "the man" is probably out to get her

    any help on determining E v I would be helpful... she tests with about equal Fe and Ni on cognitive functions tests most of the time and usually tests as an I on the simple tests

    Sounds like some INFJs I've known.

    I don't know what INFJs are like, but she sounds like an introvert.

    She's an INFJ. Oh yeah, big time.

    That could be me except for the creative writing and slow reading thingy.

    She sounds like an INFJ friend of mine - who you do NOT want to be around when she's pissed off. Fortunately I've never pissed her off.. but I know what she'd be like! She's a fiery one for sure. I myself have never been quite like that..but that's probably more related to enneagram or other things like how I was raised.

    Agree with others - sounds INFJ to me!

    yeah... I kind of had some weird extrovert bias that NO introvert should be that fiery

    There's this thing called the ESTP shadow side

    I get madder than anyone I know when I'm wronged. I spit, curse, and want to literally rip someone's head off. Lately the road crew has been rude to me, even though they can't seem to put the 'stop' signs in a pertinent place (i'm always confused about when to go or stay, so I usually go ) and I get the glare and reprimanded. Yesterday I called the lady a bitch and I'm afraid she might have heard it, much to my children's chagrin. My temper has actually been one of the things that has made me question my type on more than one occasion.

    But mostly I'm docile as a puppy dog. :wag:

    yeah... I've even seen her tell off cops before... it was what totally had me doubting

    though the shadow side thing would make sense... she gets upset and she acts more like me, I get more upset and I get more like her
