I'm curious. Two years ago, the first time I took the MBTI, I was an INTJ. A couple of months ago, I was typed an INTJ again.
My Socionics: xNTj
Enneagram *by greatest: 1, 8, 3
Wings*: 1w2, 1w9, 4w3
E/I score is very inconsistent, though it usually falls to the I side.
S/N score ranges from 15% Sensing to 80% Intuition.
T/F score is never F.
J/P score is fairly consistent at 55% J .
The only letter I'm really sure about is T.
The problem I have with the first two letters is that what I consider extroverted/sensing may be considered introverted/intuition by others. I also find an inherent contradiction about being an intuitive and a thinker at the same time. The last letter on the other hand, I really have no idea.
How I see myself:
Contrary to most INTJ's, I am a very good socializer. I was Editor-in-chief of my school paper and was part many activities including student exchange programs abroad. It is not unusual for me to take leadership, and I honestly enjoy it. However, I am usually the most quiet one within conversations. It's more accurate to say actually, that I'm the least talkative one. I do more of the listening, and I prefer not engage in small talk.
Moreover, as much as I enjoy extroverted activities, I simply enjoy introverted activities a whole lot more. I enjoy studying, working, fantasizing, thinking, and reflecting. These aggregate to a large portion of my time.
I tend to be diplomatic, but not for diplomacy's sake, but as a means to an end. I consider myself dutiful and I take responsibility when no one wants to. Otherwise, I can be quite loyal albeit with some degree of skepticism to people I like. Finally, I live my days with schedules and like to be at least a step advanced in everything, but I try to be as much flexible as possible.
How others in real life see me:
My mom once said I was cold, yet very kind. My small group of friends also said something similar. I also have been negatively called as two-faced, which I'll admit to be true at times.
I have also been called a cynic, which is true to an extent. A fair amount of my acquaintances have commented on how attractive I am. In what manner when I asked, they said it's not just the way I look, but how I can be so calm and cool and yet do silly things. In reality, those "silly things" are just small misunderstandings. Speaking of which, I have always been misunderstood; Most of the time though, I do not mind and just let it pass, but there are exceptions.
I've been called heartless and/or someone with no emotions. In my defense, I consider myself an emotionally sensitive person. "Unlike you, I know why I feel this way and what you're about to do is just stupid." —sums up what I usually say afterward.
I have sometimes also been called arrogant and close minded. In my defense, I consider myself a very open minded person. "I have a code in which I must always thoroughly consider every option and opinion. I just don't think that's a good idea."—sums up what I usually say afterward.
My problem with S/N:
I cannot understand how one can be intuitive and thinking at the same time. I always trust well-thought reasoning. Heck, I'd trust my emotions more than my intuition. Or am I on the wrong page?
Regarding the topic, I am very much an ideas person. I value evidence very very greatly, but I am not bound by it. As I mentioned, I am very skeptical, and I usually get most of my ideas by filling the blanks between the facts. I wouldn't say I'm good at understanding theories, but I never dismiss it. Lastly, what people think is idealistic and unrealistic, I think It's not impossible. Basically, all my ideas are fairly based on reality/evidence.
The main reason I get confused to answer tests like the MBTI is because a term can be so relative.
And that's about it. Sorry if it was long.
