    ESTP makes more sense than INFJ to me, for Lync.

    It is nice to help out this new person but I should point out that cupcakes only apply to those who help type me, though very reluctantly to those who just say I'm not a T without saying why.

    This is getting confusing, so I'll repost this...

And then when I actually take the effort to read the walls of text and come up with a simple, concise response... it's like I'm speaking another language than they are. Though according to most the descriptions, what I am doing with the constantly trying to get to a definition and simply things to the most concise is the very essence of Ti. But it's like I'm a lot more 'simple' in my approach compared to the INTPs here or something. I'm not sure.

    So then I find myself communicating with Ne a lot (if you want further proof of this, catch the rare moments when I talk on Vent). I get pretty comfortable once I can get to the point of communicating with people by jumping from one related idea to another... talking about what the possibilities hold. And I've noticed that I am pretty crazy about the ideapossibility-linking thing. But I am still pretty inward-focused. I don't think I quite have that extraverted energy. But maybe that's just because I'm not good at talking to people, and have rarely been able to talk about ideas that I like IRL. So maybe I'm not a real introvert. Maybe I'm really an Ne-dom who looks like one.

    There's no votes for ENTP or ENFP, so if I am in an introvert disguise, it must be a good one.
    Any thoughts on this?

    From the descriptions, I can only tell that I am some combination of Choleric, Melancholic, or Phlegmatic (probably not dominated by choleric). None of them really stand out as me.

    The new batch of cupcakes is on the 5th page btw. There are still some left, as I am not allowed to eat the cupcakes for my own postings.
    Oh; I missed your response. All I saw were the cupcakes!

    Since you mention Phlegmatic and Choleric, then the Phlegmatic part (assuming it was Inclusion) would suggest INTP. If you were ENTP, you would be Sanguine-Choleric (and also, as I think I mentioned, 7w8).
    So no, I don't think ENTP. (and it has no votes so far, as well).

    Things I have learned so far:
    Voting consensus is INxP or ‘something else’

    Posting consensus is some sort of intuitive.

    I do have some S tendencies, but my head is in space too often to be ISTP.

    Studies have shown that sometimes I give the impression of being J at first, but that impression fades fast.

    I probably use words like ‘probably’ way too much to be any J-type.

    I considered INFJ as a possibility for a short time, as I know there is an INTP/INFJ mix-up sometimes. But my Ni and Fe are so terrible that I didn’t even take it seriously enough to put on the poll. I can’t even get aha! moments.

    I appear more INFP to people than I anticipated.

    Some of this might actually be due to a strong feeling side that I do not fully see.

    While looking superficially, my Ti and Fi seem pretty close, due to the stuff about identity and doing what I want.

    Under closer inspection, in the Fi vs. Ti thread in particular, I highly doubt that I lead with Fi. My ultimate goal is to find out what is objectively true, not just what is true for me. Getting toward objective truth is just a lot trickier… perhaps I’ll settle for logically consistent.

    Here’s the part where I attempt to seriously address the possibility of being ENTP:
    Yes, I see that there were no votes for ENxP in the poll, but it was at least touched on in the thread.

    I took this test again, this time being careful that I understood what was being asked of each thing.
    introverted Thinking (Ti) (43.9)
    extraverted Intuiting (Ne) (42.8)
    introverted Feeling (Fi) (35.4)
    extraverted Thinking (Te) (33.8)
    introverted Intuiting (Ni) (25.5)
    introverted Sensing (Si) (23.4)
    extraverted Sensing (Se) (19.5)
    extraverted Feeling (Fe) (16.1)

    So, it’s the same exact pattern as the one I took at the beginning, but there are two curious trends:
    When I am ‘careful’ with the test, the Fe is still last but it’s not ‘unused.’
    There is usually only a 1-2 point difference between Ne and Ti. That is not enough to deny possible Ne-dominance.

    The only key part I see where I don’t fit the INTP description is the part about an unwillingness to explain things in an understandable way. I both love to be able to share ideas and like to be able to sum them up simply and concisely. This type of thing is often associated with ENTPs.

    The key part where I don’t fit the ENTP description is regarding a quickness and fluency with conversations. I’m afraid this will always elude me. But I’m not sure how much of this is a true matter of preference rather than a non-type related inability. I have a limited understanding of how to talk to people that has been attributed to possibly being slightly autistic, and a very slow processing style and low energy that is typical of some sorts of ADD. I don’t know at which point these things blend into my personality, and at which point they are actually inhibit key parts of my personality from showing.

    My older sister, who has a basic understanding of MBTI, has joked that I am an extravert, but only in my head.
    Reportedly, the impressions that I give other people range from “definite introvert” to “possibly a very shy, awkward extravert.”

    As far as the ‘getting energy from the outside or from people’ thing, I usually don’t know how to answer this because one moment I could be getting energized and the other moment I’m totally drained. I can get energized from people in the rare moments that I can discuss something that I am interested in. But watching people talking about other people and a bunch of other stuff I don’t understand, is very draining. Getting out of the house to the world of stimulations energizes and tires me out at the same time. I probably seem very much in my head still.

    I have tested as introverted on every test I have taken, except for one that was supposedly a situational test. On that one I tested ENTP.

    So… possible socially weird ENTP? Or genuine introvert? Sure, I’m the one who is deciding but I would like to hear some other thoughts on this pressing matter.

    I also just took that other temperament test that is around now.

    Choleric: 12
    Phlegmatic: 11
    Melancholy: 11
    Sanguine: 6

    I don't know why I am scoring highest on choleric. I'm not very take-chargeish most of the time. It seems that choleric is associated with extraverts, but sanguine is also associated as such and I scored somewhat low there. I'm pretty friendly and bubbly sometimes but not (people) relationship-focused.

    hmmm, as you know im stuck on a similar point,lol... I do not know, but I definitely see the potential to be an E in there, it could be... or you could be an introvert that at times enjoys dancing a bit on the extrovert side, a lot of people like to live dangerously hehehe...

    The Choleric would match NT. Now, this is not social skills (which is what we normally think of with the Galen temperaments, so you might not identify with the temperament much), but rather leadership skills, and having just taken this test myself, I recognized the questions that would pertain to Choleric leadership skills, and it pretty much does fit NT behaviors.

    As for Fi, the cognitive process test I believe overgeneralizes "identity" and stuff like that with Fi. All people of all types want an identity, have values, etc.
    For a Ti type, Fi is the right brain ("P") alternative, and often comes out strong. So your results do seem pretty typical INTP.

    Have you looked at Enneagram typing - the taxonomy not the New Agey metaphysics. Most INTP MBTI profiles describe type 5 behaviors. You seem more nine-ish. In fact, the cupcake thing smacks of INFP (they like sugary treats )

    I vote INTP. This smells like Ti precision!
