    Default What type-the heck-AM I??

    Having the letters 'N', 'P' accurate,
    I'm not sure about 'E/I', 'T/F' preference.
    I recently got ENTP, but I'm not sure(for about 2 years I've been!).
    Considering the details listed below,
    I beg you the best shot you could give for me to settle this type distortion.
    If you can't judge over the details I listed, look for my other posts.


    - I easily get pretty nervous when I meet / sense new people.
    - I lived my childhood as ENFP but getting through puberty gave me INTP
    results mostly(I don't think I'm INTP for I have high Ti but doesn't fit with
    some descriptions). During 'exact' ENFP days, my life was full of excitements,
    happiness and romance while I feel like sludge / slime thing sucking money
    and care from parents like a parasite but doing nothing which makes me
    more miserable and shameful.
    - I like black comedy, science fiction and Robin Williams' works for movies.
    - I'm not very fluent in exact-word saying and I easily make grammar
    mistakes.
    - Love nature, tend to hate people.
    - Because most interests of mine are mostly maniac or avant-garde, living
    and having empathy w/ other people is hard for me(plus the high STJness
    of Korea press me more).
    - Very open about people's thoughts but not feelings.
    - I obsessively think things mathematically / scientifically despite the lack of
    information and the shallowness of thoughts I have.
    - Loves editing my own thought, logic and value system.
    - I don't care about others hardship(except my family, close friends, etc).
    - Hates illogical emotions due to past accidents occured by illogical outbursts.
    - When I hear music, I tend to analyze the idea by the thoughts and feel the
    sound energy beating my heart seperately.
    - Really enjoy abstract thoughts - before : ideal and romantic, now : fact-
    based, information-focus and reasonable yet lateral sometimes.
    - Not used to show emotions to strangers and very uncomfortable with
    emotions inside. Emotions dead when alone, but active when with people.
    - Very critical about the world, everything, even me in a best-tried
    objective way.
    - I hate the shallowness of people when they're talking, doing something,
    whatever.
    - Love learning and exploring informations and theories but dislike being forced
    to study it. I only concentrate when my DNA commands me to.


    Hope this'll be the last trivia typing mine.
    Cooperation please.

    Personality type is static, so if you were an ENFP you still are - the cognitive processes that you consciously use and their hierarchy will always be the same, but like muscles their development will depend on whether you use them or don't. You sound Ne dominant (ENTP or ENFP) from your description and I get the sense of Fi auxiliary, Te tertiary (ENFP) more than Ti auxiliary, Fe tertiary (ENTP) from your description.

    I would recommend looking further into the Jungian cognitive functions as they are the core of Myers-Briggs theory from which the four dichotomies (I/E, S/N, T/F, J/P) were then developed. See the thread below for a description of the 8 cognitive functions and their roles in the psyche:

    You can rule out ENFP. (If you need a more detailed explanation for why you aren't an ENFP, I can go into that.) You are most likely some sort of xNTP. Need more information to determine extraversion or introversion. Why are you nervous when strangers come into your radar? You don't care to involve them in your life? You are anxious about how they will react to you?

    Is it important to you to share your analysis and ideas with other people? To see your ideas implemented in the real world? Or is it fulfilling enough for you to keep them to yourself?

    Thanks.
    The explanations here are awesome!
    But, I don't know the reasons how the personality type is static.
    If you don't mind, could you explain it to me?

    1. Why are you nervous when strangers come into your radar?

    Actually I used to be stolid when I was young, but after the days of hardship and lack of confidence due to my inability and exclusion combined with any kind of violence done by people who dislike me(mostly because I like something unique compared to them like listening to music like Tool and they say it sucks. They don't know how to accomodate), I became nervous to strangers. Not congenital.


    2. You don't care to involve them in your life?

    Yeah, I don't mind. I guess I only want people for needs like ideas, infos, etc. Selfish, if you ask me. But I don't intend to do revenge or any kind of harmful things to harm their thoughts or emotions.


    3. You are anxious about how they will react to you?

    Yes. I can't ignore the possibilities of people how they would react to me. I actually don't care much about people's own emotions or thoughts but I want them to know what ideas or infos I'm delivering. I think that's the reasons why I got isolated from the mass. I also hate and isn't capable of acting / faking so sometimes I criticize whatever it is if I think it's wrong(parents, professors, seniors, you name it). People say I'm too honest with emotions(I don't know how to hid it) and logic(by words) and sometimes seem very strict with values and principles. People also say you are a scatterbrained person with theoretical thoughts converted to words, and a very high mental age compared to your physical age but have very childlike emotions.


    4. Is it important to you to share your analysis and ideas with other people?

    Yes, for empathy and to see how it works with others' visions sometimes. But not too much. I also fear of someone stealing my ideas for I had some of those experience.


    5. To see your ideas implemented in the real world?

    Yes. I need to know my thoughts are working in the real world too. Even if someone would claim it 'unrealistic' or 'theoretical'. The real world is just a place for me to fulfill my ideas and thoughts and ideals.


    6. Or is it fulfilling enough for you to keep them to yourself?

    idk I get satisfied with my ideas but I also have the desire to unleash those ideas into the real world to show the world that, "This is MY idea.".


    Here's my latest cognitive functions that might help you type mine.
    Fi / 40.1 / Excellent Use
    Ti / 38.2 / Excellent Use
    Ne / 38.2 / Excellent Use
    Te / 37 / Excellent Use
    Ni / 27.9 / Average Use
    Se / 27.1 / Average Use
    Si / 24.8 / Average Use
    Fe / 6.7 / Unused


    And...could you explain to me why I'm XNTP?
    I was expecting ENFP actually(or maybe it's me wanting to be).
    Anyway, thank you for helping me.
