    Default INTP or INFP?

    I starting to reconsider whether I'm more of a feeler or thinker based on the fact that I possess very high introverted feeling and introverted thinking cogntive processes. Anyway I assembled this list a few minute ago, hopefully it should shed some insight on which persoanlity type truely fits me best.

    •I'm extremely analytical, I critique just about everything that I possibly can.

    •I have my own personal set of moral and ethical values to which I adhere to.

    •I am a capricious learner, one minute I interested in philosophy, then I get bored with it and I'm interested psychology, then I get bored with that and I'm interested in another academic subject.

    •The only thing organized about me is my room, other than that I am not good at organizing events or when to get things done. I also procrastinate on things like getting school work or household chores done.

    •I am disgusted when people don't show any compassion towards another human being at all, or when people act callous towards one another without justified reason to do so.

    •I loathe people who blindly follow rules that clearly should not be followed and only serve to harm those who shouldn't be harmed (case in point how possession of marijuana lands you in jail is cruel and unfair).

    •I am extremely shy, I often become nervous when having to speak with new people, and typically I am very quiet around my acquaintances.

    •I am extremely lazy, the idea of hard work is alien to me.

    •I love puppies, kitties, and just about every type of animal imaginable; I would rather spend my entire day hanging out with a pet dog or cat rather than a person.

    •I daydream all the time, whether it be at college, weightlifting, wasting time on the computer, etc.

    •I love to categorize things (for example I often try to type each and all of my family members and friends by the MBTI personality structure).

    •I am a intensely cynical, and yet creative person.

    •My ultimate goal in life is to accomplish something on a grand scale of humanity, I want to somehow improve upon the world, assisting humanity is its development and be remembered in the history books because of it (yeah, I not really the most practical person).

    •Watching a sad movie I may not usually feel anything for certain characters because their motivations and troubles are trivial and stupid, but just hearing the sound of melancholy piano music almost brings me to tears.

    •I have a strong interest in becoming a writer, most likely a fiction writer.

    •I am always sharing new ideas on how things can be improved and made better.

    •I detest all forms of bureaucracy and overabundant laws; restrictions on my personal freedoms bothers me.

    •I use both objective and subjective methods of decision making when evaluating a situation; I always try to take different perspectives of a matter to ensure that I make the most fair and kind resolution.

    •I am very laid back and lenient, I usually don't get aggravated at others unless I have a justified reason to do so (like if they say/do something that is extremely idiotic or they do something that clashes with my personal values).

    •I am by nature a loner, I could spend my entire life living as a hermit with no other human contact and be perfectly fine with that.

    •As much as I can't stand it when people act callous and immoral I also can't stand it when people act illogical and nonsensical.

    Well I relate to a lot of this. I test INTP a lot, because they make Feelers out to be these emotionally driven fluffy bunnies, and that's NOT me. From what you describe, you are very value driven and form those values based on an internal standard. That is pretty much the essence of Fi, if you want to cram a whole function into one sentence.

    Remember that Thinking & Feeling in the MBTI sense do not mean what they mean in laymen's terms. Both the F & T functions are rational, meaning they are a form of conscious reasoning. Everyone thinks, but different functions steer their thought process.

    For a Fi-dom, this process often means analyzing, weighing matters, and critiquing/comparing something, all to find the meaning & the importance of it, particularly in relation to what they see as true or ideal or good for themselves as an individual.
    Often a star was waiting for you to notice it. A wave rolled toward you out of the distant past, or as you walked under an open window, a violin yielded itself to your hearing. All this was mission. But could you accomplish it? (Rilke)

    Considering this I would definitely say I'm much more of a feeling type than a thinking type. I've been pondering that I may be a hybrid, but considering that a feeler isn't necessarily an "emotionally driven fluffy bunnies" as you said then I'm definitely a feeler (inwardly anyway, I also think my Ti has manifested outward, along with my aloof attitude, and makes me appear to be an INTP. But my core value , which I keep inward, are of most importance to me, so yeah, in truth I think I'm mor INFP). Thanks for the advice
