    Yikes! So many replies...

Though the years of being misunderstood and unrecognized about my true personality caused my "restrained" emotions to be contained in a bottleneck, so maybe that's what causing the "Fi" to have a high score.
    Hmmmm you see that quite a bit with INFPs... they often keep themselves under tight control because of the Fi... The restrain and numbing of emotions. Interesting to see you mention it in reverse though.

So is this a form of a self-centered approach in helping out people? That is doing, something strategic out of your sympathetic inclination?
    But would that be T in control of the F?
    I don't really think you're an INFJ... but your thinking style is similar to mine... Looks like Ti with a bit of Ni (could be Ne though). It's basically thinking by asking questions for understanding. Ti not Te (my feel for things anyways).

    That sounds a tad like J behavior... INXPs tend not to push as much. ENTP can sometimes do that though, but less likely than an NJ.

    2. What I wanna learn will depend on my inclination and what interests me. It's not a mere knowledge per-se kind of disposition, but a more stratified one. Though I have to admit, I hate the concept of specialization since it may show a weakness in me, so I try to balance out what I know, even if the execution of it is still stratified.
    Hmmmm question for you: When you're first given a problem... how do you go about solving it? What's your approach?

    Depends on nature of the problem. If it's an integral calculus type of problem where I have to solve an equation, I would most likely self implode if I don't recall the formula.

    If it involves concepts, individual dynamics, social dynamics, or cultural dynamics and whatnot, the solving the problem would be comparatively easier.

    I have a tendency to put concepts into an organized layout (at least mentally), and then make an educated guess as to where the problem may theoretically fit. It's like I have a pre-conceived idea of how to solve a problem depending on where it fits (based of course on experience and theoretical considerations) If that can solves the problem, then it kinda validates my initial "hunch"

    If you're having a problem in a relationship... what do you do? How do you internalise and organise your thoughts and feelings? How do you approach the person? What are you feeling when you approach them?

    I only have had one legitimate relationship which is my current one.

    My girlfriend is more like an ISFP, which is pretty much easy to handle in my opinion.

    Between the two of us, definitely I have a stronger personality, and whenever were having a misunderstanding, I have the tendency to be verbally loud in the hopes of making her speak up, which hardly happens because she does the reverse. She becomes even more silent, making me eventually just apologize just to settle things even if I don't see things as my fault. She's not even verbally equipped to apologize well.

    There's a part of me that wants to provoke her to speak up more because I hate the idea of her being a pushover in many aspects of her life, but I realize that a verbal provocation hardly works. I want her to be inspired instead but I don't have the verbal capacity to be a sweet inspirational talker.

    Would you really want to be a sweet inspirational talker?

    Here you say: Hmmmm....I don't have a humanitarian disposition, and I seem to be better off in the company of people who have lesser tendencies to self-implode. Though I have to admit, I can be a magnet to emotionally wrecked people. But I consider myself to be too rational to be a spiritually supporting individual. I'm more straight to the point.

    That seems to betray that you don't want to be a sweet inspirational talker, not that you don't have the ability to be one. It's just not your thing. You're straight forward. That's an INTP thing.

    Is that not Ni? Why do I want to say INTJ? Without evidence to support it as well...

    i want to say INFJ for some reason. not being a pushover doesn't mean you don't have Fe. and it seems as if you understand social implications and dynamics quite well. (being aware of your GF's motivations, etc.) you have a drive to push her towards her own growth, which is quite NFJ. "I hate the idea of her being a pushover in many aspects of her life". that's Fe.

    you certainly seem Ni dominant to me.

    sounds like Ni+Ti

    Hmmmmm.....I think it's a standard INTP dilemma--the need for deep relationships but lacking the Fe (aka expected normal public behavior) for it. But unlike the colder INTJ's or ENTJ's, I'm pretty much attuned with my feelings (which justifies my high Fi. This gives me an ability to attract friendships with people. Though it's still weird in a sense that I attract the company of people through understanding emotions, at least in the context of myself. But having an understanding a full grasp of someone else's emotion is another thing. I think that justifies my lack of Fe).

    I'm not saying that I can't transform my speech into that. I have the spiritual inclinations of an INTP for it, but maybe I don't think I can push things to that level yet.

    Exactly what I'm thinking, which is justified by the cognitive processes test.

    I can't imagine myself as a stereotypical INTJ or an ENTJ because I don't think I have a well developed Te (I hated college calculus and physics so much). I primarily learn trough concepts/abstract images. They're pretty much vivid in my mind.
