    Not true for all INFP. We're not all fluffy bunnies. I support gun rights.

    I think I might be a T who thinks that is logical to always consider other people's feelings. An NT can be empathetic. An NT can use intuition as a strong guide just as an NF can use reason as one.
    For some of these reasons, I am thinking of returning to the NT side and just saying that I am a somewhat 'immature NT'.
    you sound like an INTP to me. your feelings seem to be based on external standards as well = Fe.

    and i agree -- it is good to keep in mind that every type has FOUR active functions, not just two. thinking and feeling cannot exist without eachother -- thinking is always motivated by feeling. just like intuition cannot exist without sensing -- all perception is a mix between concrete sensory input and unconscious connections to concepts.

    everyone uses N, S, T, and F every few seconds. type is just about which ones you tend to put more weight on.

    side note: it may help you to read bluewing's INFP and INTP profiles. if you can make it through them, you are guaranteed an extremely good understanding of those types .

    If you can make it through them, you probably ARE an INTP! LOL!

    Why do you say this? I found the profiles easy enough to read and the INFP was extremely helpful to me. So much of the info on INFP out there just says "Hey you are a wonderful hippy!"

    I tried reading the INTJ description. I couldn't make it all the way through. It was too hard to understand. In my experience, INTPs love to delve into every little detail and follow every train of thought like that. I was unaware that INFPs were similar.

    If relating to human element, yes.

    Male INFP for sure. Welcome to the clan. It's not what you think.

    That's interesting... from my observations, this appears to be the case generally with people's ability to understand BW, although individuals may differ:

    TJ's usually have a hard time with all those abstract nuances despite being fairly intelligent otherwise. FP's seem to have a random amount of skill where it's concerned. FJ's can read it but often find it tedious, and TP's can read them if they wish, but some of those find them meaningless, obvious, and/or biased.

    My theory so far is that Ti is somehow turns in on itself such that it ends up examining human perception and the way we perceive structure, rather than anything external, such that it becomes an elaborate and detailed mechanism that can describe feelings or perceptions. Or rather, BlueWing's seems to do this, and I don't see any reason other INTP's might not be doing this on some level.
