    Well, actually I'm pretty active on INFJ forums, but I wanted a second opinion from another community. I hadn't really ever connected with any people here, but I have been aware for some time about the theory.

    I hope I'm not seeming sketchy by doing this. If you have more questions, feel free to ask.

    I'd think it's because lots of schooling and work-related stuff causes F's to need to develop their T, whereas it's pretty easy to get validation and function in the world without ever developing F.

    I think I'm an INFP, but I'm really good with (and enjoy) logical puzzles and problem solving, so I'm not sure whether that's just an anomaly or whether I should really reconsider my type because of it.

    What do you guys think?
    The F/T just indicates preference, not skill. An INTP prefers to use Ti, but that doesn't necessarily mean he/she is super smart. Similarly, an INFP may not prefer to use Ti, but that doesn't mean he/she cannot be good at it.

    There are quite a number of INFPs on this forum who have T-type careers in science and technology

    my infp friend has always been a huge sherlock holmes fan and i have learned to value feelings. but feeling for T is quite different than feeling for F. for feelers the feelings side is pretty constant, but for me logical thinking side is constant. im kind of like trying to figure out what my Ne tells me using logic all the time and thats how i understand whats going on behind the scenes and around me.

    you said exactly what i was going to go for

    feelers "feel" pretty much all the time. we're almost always attuned to atmosphere/impression and people dynamics. thinkers "think" all the time. they're almost always attuned to logic and the way things work.

    i also do programming and enjoy strategy and logic too, but it's only of good quality when i actually pay attention to it, whereas i "feel" pretty much regardless of whether i want to or not.

    I also say INFP who enjoys strategy.

    And also, it's easier to get away in world with not valuing feelings than with not valuing strategy. There is no feeling class in school, but math is.

    I am extreme F, but I am extremely good in math, to the point they say I am completely insane that I dont pursue it--but I dont enjoy it, I used to somewhat, mostly because I was good and feels good to be so good in something, and to figure something what others cant. But as purpose in life - Hah. I couldnt care less to be some great mathematician.

    I have very NF goals and interests, for me to be happy I need to make a difference in emotional lives of people.
    Also, math is pretty much only place where I am able to be logical, because there I can detach, it's very removed from real life. Other places I cant detach, so I am irrational.

    Maybe you should view more at NF vs. NT.

    This. INTPs tend not to exactly enjoy strategy (they prefer idle analysis and speculation), but INFPs, especially if they're older, could very well enjoy strategy due to inferior Te. INTPs on the other hand, are F-inferior and Fe, so they're not likely to be good at, or comfortable with, exploring their own feelings.
