    I kinda see what Tallulah is saying.

    This is nothing concrete (which if you are an ISTJ you'll hate) but I get a similar vibe from all the bonafide ISTJs on the forum, and you match it. It's just a specific straight forward matter-of-fact way of posting.

    I especially saw ISTJ in your Not Feeling Significant on This Forum thread. I also wouldn't get too caught up on Si/Ti loops or whatever when trying to find ur type, start at ur simple preferences. E/I, S/N, etc... then get into functions if you want, but I've seen function theory really mess up people's typing game.

    And hey, if someone finds the traits of Ns admirable, but they might not necessarily have them, you can be pretty sure a good number will "test" N.

    There is/was another ISTJ on this forum, Mathew Z or something, who kinda idealized INTPs I think, while overlooking ISTJ strengths, but I think in the end self-typed correctly, after claiming INTP for a while.

    Yeah, the way it is on function tests, I usually end up scoring ISFJ or INTP depending on my mood, at least on pure function tests. I believe that the tests are heavily biased towards Ti and Ne.

    But I see Ni in a completely different way. To me, it's like developing an abstract representation of a situation in your mind. Trying to use information from the present to try and guess what will happen in the future. It looks mystical to people who don't use it, but it's really not. No more than weathermen predicting the weather is mystical. It's just "seeing" an abstraction that represents a situation, and figuring out what will happen in the future. Ni is responsible for things like:

    1. "What if" scenarios, imagining what might happen, given certain assumptions.
    2. Recognizing the assumptions inherent in any interpretation of reality.
    3. Looking at a situation from more than one perspective.
    4. Attempting to use available data and instincts to predict what may happen in the future.
    5. Planning out ways of striving to shape and manipulate events to ensure that the future turns out the way you've planned it to turn out (Contingency planning).

    Those are examples of what I consider Ni... I know more INJs who identify with these than the "mystical" descriptions.

    Thanks for your feedback. I still think ISFJ is more likely than ISTJ as I think I'm more of a Ti/Fe user than Fi/Te but I could be wrong here. I do see myself pretty straightfoward in my posting style. I like to say what I mean and mean what I say. It just makes communication a whole lot simpler and reduces misunderstandings. Its one of the 'S' traits I have- I tend to be overly literal sometimes. I sometimes have a harder time digest posts from people who post in a more convoluted style. *cough*Victor*cough* He is amusing to read when I understand him.

    I'm curious what stood out for you in that thread as ISTJ? I would have thought it would have been more F like.

    I know I tend to score different if I'm going letter by letter vs. if I'm going by functions. I think I've found that to be the case with many members here. Letter by letter, I'll often come out as INTJ but I fit INTP better function wise.

    That's true. There's alot of people mistyping as N.

    If you can completely forget about function theory for a minute... can't you see how this paragraph describes you as an ISTJ to a tee? And Ss have a much harder time digesting Vic than Ns, and more abstract posters like owl. It's a good N/S litmus test.

    I think function ordering/stacking is bunk, with no logical basis. But you can choose to go by it.

    I think you should take care of other aspects of your life before trying to type yourself, you're propably too depressed atm.
    I respect your openness, good luck to you!

    All right, who gave a one star rating to this thread? According to the rating system, one star means terrible. Is this thread really this terrible? Its fine, if you don't like this thread, you're entitled to your opinion but I'd really like to know *why* you think you this thread is not up to standard so that it can be made better. Is it because you're tired of my ranting about my type? Is it the quality of feedback that others are giving regarding my type? Is it something else?

    On a side note, I'm against thread ratings. Someone could have a beef against someone for whatever reason and therefore give a thread a low rating. I suppose the opposite could happen too- giving high ratings to threads from people you like. I think posting on this forum is a learning experience- you'll have some hits and you'll have some misses. Rating a thread as terrible can cause someone to lose the motivation to post threads. It's like getting unsolicited negative feedback. It's fine if you ask for someone's honest opinion of a thread and they give it to you but sometimes people would rather not risk that hurt. I asked for feedback regarding my *type*, not the quality of the thread.

    Okay, I am a sensitive person. I'm not the most thick skinned. I'll be honest and say that I'm hurt by the low rating of this thread. Take that information as additional data to use in my typing. I think this points more towards F although wanting to know *why* the thread was rated that way could be T.

    http://www.typologycentral.com/forum...intp-what.html


    Maybe I'm just in a Ti/Si loop. FWIW, I find I have quite a bit in common with ISFJ even though they only share introversion in common with INTP.

    I'm finding that I identify some with the SJ temperament. I am very security oriented and dependable. I have a strong need to feel like I belong. Where I differ is that I'm not all that traditionally minded and a hell of a lot more theoretical and less practical.

    So please vote in my poll as to what you think my best fit type is.
    I admit I have quite similar issues(just not about the forum, but the people I live with), and really nobody would doubt that I'm an NTP. So I don't think it's THAT atypical. Though that doesn't mean you're surely an INTP, either.

    I used to think FiSi INFP for you, but what AJ says about ISTJ makes some sense. But you seem overly sensitive for one of them too. Regardless, I don't think you're an INTP.
