    Of course, since you're a P, I somehow don't think you will ever close this argument!

    such an INFP thing to say
    "You will always be fond of me. I represent to you all the sins you never had the courage to commit."

    Reason is, and ought only to be the slave of the passions, and can never pretend to any other office
    than to serve and obey them. - David Hume

    Honestly, at this point I'm beginning to think the system is rather ridiculous if you can't figure out an INTP from an INFP...

    I still don't know what type you are, personally. I'm beginning to think it probably doesn't really mean anything if it's so hard to discern.

    Since you have narrowed your choices to INP, have you taken a good self-analysis of your temperament preferences? Most likely the Catalyst and Theorist temperaments are your strongest. So which do you believe your core needs fit best with:
    The Catalyst Temperament
    (Diplomatic Skill Set)

    The core needs are for the meaning and significance that come from having a sense of purpose and working toward some greater good. They need to have a sense of unique identity. They value unity, self-actualization, and authenticity. People of this temperament prefer cooperative interactions with a focus on ethics and morality. They tend to trust their intuition and impressions first and then seek to find the logic and the data to support them. Given their need for empathic relationships, they learn more easily when they can relate to the instructor and the group.

    -OR-

    The Theorist Temperament
    (Strategic Skill Set)

    The core needs are for mastery of concepts, knowledge, and competence. People of this temperament want to understand the operating principles of the universe and to learn or even develop theories for everything. They value expertise, logical consistency, concepts, and ideas and seek progress. They tend toward pragmatic, utilitarian actions with a technology focus. They trust logic above all else. They tend to be skeptical and highly value precision in language. Their learning style is conceptual, and they want to know the underlying principles that generate the details and facts rather than the details alone.

    Okay,

    Talent: Strategic Skill-Set
    Learning: Knowledge-Centered
    Self-Leadership: Expertise-Oriented

    My results were Theorist, followed by Catalyst.

    Thanks for that test, "?".


    Theorist: Want knowledge and to be competent, to achieve. Seek to understand how the world and things in it work. Are theory oriented. See everything as conditional and relative. Are oriented to the infinite. Trust logic and reason. Want to have a rationale for everything. Are skeptical. Think in terms of differences, delineating categories, definitions, structures, and functions. Hunger for precision, especially in thought and language. Are skilled at long-range planning, inventing, designing, and defining. Generally are calm. Foster individualism. Frequently gravitate toward technology and the sciences. Well suited for engineering and devising strategy, whether in the social or physical sciences.

    This, I identify with.

    Catalyst:Want to be authentic, benevolent and empathic. Search for identity, meaning and significance. Are relationship oriented, particularly valuing meaningful relationships. Are romantic and idealistic, wanting to make the world a better place. Look to the future. Trust their intuition, imagination, impressions. Focus on developing potential, fostering and facilitating growth through coaching, teaching, counseling, communicating. Generally are enthusiastic. Think in terms of integration and similarities and look for universals. Are gifted in the use of metaphors to bridge different perspectives. Are diplomatic. Frequently are drawn to work that inspires and develops people and relationships.

    This.. where I don't identify is the whole integration and relationships thing.. I don't want to make the world a better place.. I do search for my identity.. but that is a very human thing to do.. I do not strive to be benevolent and empathic.. or harmonious.. I am just naturally that way. Often, I surprise people with my cold, detached response to their invasion of my boundaries.

    Everyone should listen to Uber, for Uber is all-knowing!

    Dana, I'm so sorry that [an anonymous higher power] made you a P, but I empathize!

    But if you're an INFP, your F is introverted, which is probably why you may seem aloof to others. That's often why INTPs and INFPs are hard to tell apart, because they behave similarly with their extroverted function, but they think differently. But really, F or not, I don't think any introverted type is inclined to wear their heart on their sleeve.
