    a few questions that might help clarify:
    1) what do you like to do in your free time?
    2) when you are making a casual decision that will yield little consequence either way (such as what shirt to buy) are you more calculating or do you simply just say "I like this one better, I'm getting it"
    3) do you feel the need to have sustantial empirical evidence or are you content understanding something and making a decision based on that?

    YAY Cupcakes!

    Anyway, I think it's somewhat safe to say that you Luna, are definitely an NP, probably INxP, so the key point is seeing whether you use Fi or Ti more. Elfboy's questions above should reveal that.

    I am no expert on MBTI but I am going to guess, after re-reading the descriptions of everything again on multiple sites, and thinking over what I have learned of you in the years we have been friends... I am leaning more towards believing you to be INFP, but its fairly close between that and INTP... I'll chat with you later about my specific reasoning if you'd like me to <3

    Is this what would I like to do in my free time or what I do in my free time that I actually like?

    Stuff I do in my free time that I like:
    eating
    drinking coffee
    singing
    video games (platformers and ddr)
    Studying Japan and anime
    other wikipedia'ing
    researching things on intelligence, IQ, and learning differences
    random facebook stuff
    and also random causes
    reading and posting on here
    typology (obviously)
    online shopping
    sudoku
    listening to technodance-ish and hip hop instrumental music
    watching a lot of Jeopardy, Mythbusters, and stuff dealing with outer space or traveling
    wandering around the library

    Stuff I like to do in my free time but do not do enough:
    inventing stuff
    writing scifi-like stories
    drawing
    reading
    more hardcore brain teasers
    hardcore research on cognition theories
    travelling/exploring the world
    cosplaying
    wandering bookstores
    self-teaching of physics and engineering basics
    standing behind causes more/saving the universe
    hiking
    watching the stars

    I'm probably still missing a bunch of stuff, but yeah...

    I think my approach is pretty typical with casual situations such as those.

    Like, with choosing one shirt over another, I take into account price, comfort, fit, flatteriness, awesomeness, and how much I would use it.

    So perhaps somewhere in between...

    If all else about the calcuations is about equal, I'll go with what I like.

    It really depends on what we're talking about here.

    There are the types of decisions that are not really that important, or where empirical evidence just doesn't apply.

    Like, until every bit of my brain can be scanned, there is no empirical evidence on my type, but MBTI is far from scientific, it's about my preference.

    I would always like to have substantial empirical evidence on things that are more of a factual nature, but it is very difficult to get. I cannot do experiments on everything that is in the textbooks in my lifetime, so I am satisfied with analyzing the facts given and fitting them into a framework.

    I am both surprised and unsurprised at the general INxP consensus.

    I test as INTx often, but I have seen lately that it is really the Ti and Fi that are in an epic dual.

    And I put S as a possibility too because of the things said on here about most of the intuitives really being sensors. But even so, it seems that I'm one of the real Ns here =P

    I still think I am preferring T over F, but that the F side is pretty strong and I should pay attention to that.

    As I've sort of said, I'm pretty obsessed with analysis, definitons, being concise, and with my capabilities at doing such. And I am also obsessed with being weird, figuring out what I want, and saving the world.

    I know I do not want to have an X in my type. I want a clear definition

    I have a clear definition for you, AND its backed up with empirical evidence... Luna is Awesome <3

    But I am looking for something that can fit into those four spaces under my location. AWSM might work but I am already an 'awesome member.' So am I clearly the F type of awesome of the T type?

    Also I was looking around at the other members cogntive function results and found it interesting that it was common for self-identified INTPs to have Ti and Fi within 10 points of each other, but there were virtually no self-identified INFPs with Fi and Ti within 10 points.

    That "long scientific personality test" that OkCupid has gave me this result this time:
    INTP - the Architect
    18% I to E
    26% N to S
    62% F to T
    74% J to P

    I hope I can still get some more feedback even with the princess cupcake gone...

    on a more shallow note, some of your posting habits on TypeC, such as "yay! you all get cupcakes!" are F as hell. also
    - studying anime and japan
    - cosplaying, and especially
    - singing
    all indicate strong Fi preference to me. also, as a whole, it's seems to me that NFs with strong Thinking are more prevelant than NTs with strong Feeling.
    PS: if you really are INFP (which I am betting on) it's likely that you actually use Ne to do a lot of the things that are frequently attributed to Ti in cognitive function tests

    Ts aren't allowed to like cupcakes?

    I can see the cosplay/Fi link. I never doubted strong Fi.
    I'm not sure where the singing link is, except that may be an uncommon interest for INTPs.
    Also Anime/Japanophilia are pretty common among the Ts on this forum. A lot of the anime is very stereotypically F but I tend to stay away from those ones.
    You didn't find anything that indicated strong Ti?
