    One more thing I'd want to add about my personality, I am definitely not "Intense". I never take myself too seriosuly.

    I have a lot of goals but most are meant to create a stable foundation for a fun life.

    Something that might be helpful just occured to me. I hate overly emmotional people with a passion. Especially if said people are whining about how they've been victimized but refuse to take action.
    it seems pretty impossible to me that you're an INFJ based on that comment.

    INFP makes way more sense. sorry for saying INFJ before lol.

    the whole future thing from your intro thread is def more of an N thing though- I NEVER think ahead!

    Now I am starting to wonder when I started to think ahead. I know I said I have always been that way but now that I think about it that tendency didn't really start until college.

    In fact, my friends and I were big troublemakers up to college. But after many of my friends got into serious trouble I slowed down and became a bit of a hermit.

    Hmm ... i think i just had a little self discovery

    wait. don't rule out all INxx types because you aren't like your cousin.

    i'm way different than many INxx types lol.

    i'm sticking with INFP. i think you must have so little patience for emotions of others because of some figure in your childhood being too irrational or something like that.

    also, how old are you?

    Let's take it from the top. Shall we?

    You might be right about my comparison to my cousin. However, he is the prototypical nerd (socially awkward, very few friends, loves psychology and science) whereas I am have a ton of friends and love science but not more than having fun and hanging out with friends.

    My fault, I should have been clearer, it not so much emmotions as it is irationality that turns me off. If someone is justifiably upset, that's cool.

    I'm 26.

    I had to look up Forer effect but it seems apropos.

    Is it possible that I am in fact an SP, but that my family and friends are such extreme SPs that i seem Nx in comparison?

    Also, any chance genetics influence type?

    you're not SP.
