    Default What is Luna's Type?

    I am fairly sure of my type by now, but lately I've been wondering if there is another possibility that I am overlooking due to identifying with this type for so long. I have heard on a few occasions that I could be ENFP or INFP, and I wonder if this is more due to my name and cute avatars, or an actual expression of NFP preference.

    So...

    I've taken the tests about 100 times over the past 3 years.

    about 92% of the time I test as INTP

    about 6% of the time I test as INTJ

    and about 2% of the time I test as something else.

    Also, I tested as ISFP when I was 10 years old, but I do not know anything else about this.

    This is my most recent functional order:

    introverted Thinking (Ti) ******************************************* (43.3)
    extraverted Intuiting (Ne) ***************************************** (41.3)
    introverted Feeling (Fi) **************************************** (40)
    extraverted Thinking (Te) ************************************ (36.4)
    introverted Intuiting (Ni) ************************* (26)
    introverted Sensing (Si) ******************** (20.8)
    extraverted Sensing (Se) ******************** (20)
    extraverted Feeling (Fe) ************ (12.4)

    I think I am equal parts enneagram 4 and 5. I am obsessed with both individuality and competence. Kind of an alien analyzing the earth...
    But 5w4 makes sense in that I am 7-like during stress and 8-like while strong.

    Key Parts of the INTP description that I fit:
    -seeking clarity in everything
    -driven to build knowledge
    -"absent-minded professor"
    -approaching problems with enthusiasm and skepticism
    -love of new ideas
    -lives inside own mind
    -very little value on tradition
    -unconventional thought patterns

    Key parts I don't fit:
    -extremely bright
    -problems with dressing
    -unwillingness to explain things in an understandable way

    Key parts of the INFP description that I fit:
    -focused on making the world a better place
    -idealist
    -interested in understanding people
    -fighting for causes
    -perfectionism
    -awkward with verbal expression

    Key parts I don't fit:
    -placing little importance on who is right and who is wrong
    -not liking to deal with hard facts and logic
    -disbelief in impersonal judgement

    Key parts of the ENTP description that I fit:
    -absorbing ideas
    -resourceful
    -enthusiasm for possibilities everywhere
    -never finishing what is started
    -love to debate issues

    Key parts I don't fit:
    -understanding things quickly
    -excellence at conversations
    -not noticing human element in decision making

    Key parts of the INTJ description that I fit:
    -value on competence
    -driven to come to conclusions
    -value on systems
    -driven to explain their ideas
    -ambitious
    -self-confident
    -remain in background until need to take the lead

    Key parts I don't fit:
    -quick to understand new ideas
    -natural leader
    -not following idea as far as possible
    -not having problems with meeting goals

    Key parts of the ISTP description that I fit:
    -drive to understand how things work
    -liking to take things apart
    -adventuresome spirit
    -disbelief in rules
    -firm belief in equity and fairness
    -overwhelmed with emotions when stressed and prone to outburts
    -not wanting commitments

    Key parts I don't fit:
    -disinterest in theories without application
    -fearlessness
    -focus on the practical
    -quick decisions
    -good at follow through


    I'm all sorts of weird stuff, but am I really so clearly more INTP than the rest, or should I consider another type/types more seriously? I can answer questions and add more info.

    Thanks in advance

    Judging from your results and other information, I'd say probably INTP, with xNFP being the most likely beyond that due to your funtions.

    Also you mentioned how becuase of your cute name and avatar that you might be an NFP, and although I don't entirely disagree with that idea, is it possible that you just choose those specific avatar and name because your female (assuming your are)?

    NP is fairly certain. Ne is drastically superior to your other information gathering functions. my thoughts from most likely to least likely are:
    1) INTP
    2) ENTP
    3) INFP
    4) ENFP

    About the name and avatar, that is part of it.

    Some reasons for being LunaLuminosity:
    -sounds kind of like a scientific name for moonlight
    -that Luna from Harry Potter is awesome, and I am like her in voice and manner, though I think she is more NF than me.... so I like simply being called Luna so that it's like a real name but without revealing my real name
    -I don't want to confuse people by changing my name
    -I don't want to answer questions all the time about whether I'm female or not =P (I am)

    The avatar... I usually identify as cats because they are cool, and I take a long time to think about stuff. So thinker kitty is pretty much me, lol

    Thanks for the feedback and keeping this alive, Elf and Savage.

    (And only two votes? That's just unacceptable... it's only two clicks)

    Should I start giving out free cupcakes to those who post or vote here?





    Would that skew the resulting posts to the NF side?

    Well choosing Luna as the scientific name for moon might signify NT? Actually I'm not that sure on my original idea, as I'm a guy and I like using really cute avatars myself, but I'm also an NF too...

    Thanks for the feedback and keeping this alive, Elf and Savage.
    sure thing, if one needs to be typed then Savage Brain will always be there!

    I agree, more people need to be active in this part of the forum.

    Having met you in person, I am fairly certain of the Introversion and some what certain of the NT ism.

    I suppose you could be an INTJ, but you don't seem directive enough...so I will say probably an INTP.

    Accept the past. Live for the present. Look forward to the future.

    So far, Savage Brain, Elfboy, Ygolo, and the other anonymous two who voted in my poll get a cupcake. But there are still more for the taking...

    well, first off, your cognitive function results are ridiculously high
    looking at your descriptions again, you are looking more and more like an INFP or (less likely) ENFP. all of the traits you shared with NTPs are correlated much more with N than T. also
    -focused on making the world a better place
    -idealist
    -interested in understanding people
    -fighting for causes
    -perfectionism
    -awkward with verbal expression
    you don't get much more INFP than this

    Key parts I don't fit:
    -placing little importance on who is right and who is wrong
    -not liking to deal with hard facts and logic
    -disbelief in impersonal judgement
    actually several INFPs and ENFPs don't fit these traits either. NFPs are usually pretty rational just like NTs, the difference is that we tend to be more subjective and less inclined to need proof for everything. for instance, NFPs frequently research something to prove a point and end up thinking "I already knew this, why did I waste my time with that?" NTs on the other hand will likely think something more along the lines of "Yes! I have solid evidence now!"
