    Oh well, I tried. Good luck!

    I'm off to post on some new threads.

    Or an oddly meticulous and rather ambitious INTP?
    Or do you think it is something else?
    INTJ's are planned and interested in application.

    INTP's are meticulous and ambitious (like all NT's).

    Your Ne+Ti scores are higher than your Ni+Te scores.

    So, INTP.

    Good point.

    Based on what; that shitty cognitive processes test? I've scored as a myriad of things on that, so I don't trust it at all.

    You have been very candid about your behavior any chance you are an Extrovert not an Introvert?
    It's a valid point, but I think many of us who are very much introverted are more candid on ye olde internets than we are naturally- participating in online fora is almost like interactive journalling. I don't see much E in merkw otherwise.

    Ahh, also a good point.

    I often forget that unlike myself, some people's mouths actually stop moving.

    BTW, [Warning: i'm probably the most confused person on this forum regarding typing others] is it me or does having a poll seem like a very T thing to do? It's such a cold and precise way of determining something.

    In my case i kept discussing my potential type until i felt comfortable with it.

    Anyway, i am probably way off the mark as usual ...

    I'd have said J, not T. Definite conclusions. Either that or a tired P actually.

    My guess is that being kind of ambitious could lean you towards INTJ. Many INTP's seem very bad with Te, so that brings it into doubt. Your strong Fi seems to weaken the case for INTP as well. With the strong N in both directions, you could be an INTJ.

    Since when were INTPs ambitious?

    1. They don't want to lead, or be led.
    2. They don't want to be in charge of chunks of society
    3. They want to pursue knowledge and often don't care whether it gets large scale acceptance
    4. They don't want status symbols or acceptance marks by society

    Any other definition of ambition I'm missing?

    What I've noticed about INTJ's is that they start off with a theory that they've worked out internally, and ask questions and do research in order to fine tune it. What I notice with your posts and threads, your questions and way of operating on this board, is that you start off with a question, and you ask questions and test reactions in order to gather information, to form a theory. That seems more INTP to me.

    Your aggressive pursuit of seeking definition caused me to chose J over P. I've seen Ps look into their boundaries and structure, but not with the singular J level intensity of "MUST HAVE... NOW..."

    I just want the answer to this dilemma ASAP.
    Also, couldn't this rigid determination to find out my type just be a manifestation of Ti? There have been several INTPs like this.
    All excellent points.

    Why does it matter so much right now?
