so i've taken variations of the mbti about 30 times (i'm a psych major, lots of those were required, lol), and i come out about 50-50 xNFP. i'm totally down with the NFP, but the E-I is bugging me.
the thing is, i always thought i was an I. i don't really like initiating social contact (but i do enjoy social contact), and i need my alone time (but i do go batty if it's more than a day and i haven't interacted with others.) i did the type-checker in the stickies, and i come out as an I for sure - more of a behind the scenes person than a cheerleader, though i am a really great one-on-one motivator. (I IS PULLING AHEAD)
the thing is, there are a lot of qualities which have been attributed to INFP that i don't have. for example, i have done much study into ethics and have certain values, but i don't have certain particular very strong causes, or a defined line in right vs wrong. i don't like sad things, or find a specialness in being sad beyond like 10 minutes of moping and a good excuse for ben and jerrys, and i've never really felt more than averagely misunderstood, isolated, broken, or defective. i'm comfortable in crowds and like being the center of attention. i'm also an adrenaline junkie. (BUT E IS SLIPPING UP FROM BEHIND)
first possibility, is, of course, that these attributions are off. (THEY ARE NECK-AND-NECK)
maybe i am infp, and just very individual? (how infp of me)
maybe i am enfp, and on the shy end of the bell curve?
maybe i am xnfp, and should shut up and go to sleep?
(THE BATTLE RAGES)
well, i should shut up and go to sleep.
thank you for your halp :]]] <3
