    Default INxP

    I am either an INTP or an INFP.

    I would like to be the subject of analysis.

    I'm only sensitive when I want to be.. I'm not sensitive to criticisms of my ideas.. but I have a great capacity for love and affection.

    I think it is very possible that I am an INFP with a developed Te, but I often catch myself using Fe, or simply being frank and tactless when I detect another is threatening my autonomy or boring me with endless chatter or invading my personal bubble.

    It is not that I doubt I am an INFP. It is that I test INTP, and I identify with INTP.. My dad is an INTP, so is my grandfather, and we have pretty much no emotional connection, but we are extremely close because we appreciate the same things. My dad and grandfather aren't even nice people.. not at all, but I so very much value their intelligence that it doesn't matter.

    I don't walk on eggshells, and I don't expect others to walk on eggshells with me. I have always been one to challenge the claims of people I am around, and I can detach and understand both sides of an argument.

    I have always held competence to a high regard, whether or not I "like" the person. My feelings toward the person are often irrelevant and not even conscious. I value justice over mercy. I have never been a merciful person.. but I feel a connection with people that makes me think I could be an INFP. I am moved by movies and music... but I have little sympathy. I am just not a sympathetic person.. I don't understand it. Whenever someone comes to me with their problems, I always approach the situation frankly.. because I see it as an opportunity for them to understand a little more about life or themself.
    I often disregard the feelings of others if they begin to suffocate me and try to get too close, and I'll have no remorse about it..

    Would an INFP do this?

    There can be no analysis without data.

    Unless you want people to check the post history of your forum accounts, of course.
    Not really.

    You play more as INFP right now... but more data points, please.

To trace the remote in the immediate; the eternal in the ephemeral; the past in the present; the infinite in the finite; these are to me the springs of delight and beauty.” ~ H.P. Lovecraft

    Hmmm... is it that you doubt you are F, or think you are T?
    If it is the former, coupled with the above post, could point to a likelihood of INFP. If the latter, could you tell us about what you're relating to where INTPs and/or INTP descriptions are concerned?

    For what it's worth the hobbies you listed in your profile seem more SP than NF or NT.

    When you are filling out your profile, it offers "hobbies", not interests, so I only listed what I enjoy doing.

    Psychology is a huge interest of mine. My research sucks up the greatest portion of my time.

    I'm assuming by your avatar that you are male.
    I have an INFP sister, but I get the strong impression that the type-behavior from one sex doesn't translate well over to the other sex.

    My sister lets people walk all over her, though, to answer your question.

    So you are saying that you don't think I'm an INFP because I don't let people walk all over me?

    I know INFPs that don't let people walk all over them. Heart, for one of many.

    I'm saying that what I know about INFPs probably doesn't apply to you.
