    My feeling is more INFP than other.

    Which suits you better;

    Are you more empathetic, and supportive or are you more clever?
    Are you cleverly supportive?

    I used to have my Fi higher than my Fe, until I realised this was strongly linked to my depression, and deliberately started working on reversing that tendency. My Fi is still very high, though.
    Interesting. I have been trying more to understand Fe better, but I think my attempt to better understand it has made me even more self critical than I was oblivious to how poorly I was using Fe. I've visited INFPgc a few times (just as a lurker), and either find I relate very clearly or not at all with those there who show as INFP (probably 50/50 split), but none of the INFPs that regularily post here give me that feeling of I'm very different (somewhat different, but not a lot) than them. With INFJs it feels like its around 20 (relate)/80 (don't relate) split, but the ones I do relate with feels as strong or stronger than my connection to most other INFPs.

    Would you mind sharing what did you do to develop better use of Fe?
    (might be better for PM since its slighlty offtopic)

    Are you cleverly supportive?
    I don't know. I probably try to be without thinking about it tho. If the first idea that comes to mind is simple and would seem to work well (ie, just offering to listen) thats not very creative, but sometimes creative ideas will pop into my head (about anything, not specifically about beign supportive or anything else) and I'll go with that too in addition to whatever else feels right for the moment, but in general, just listenign and trying to be understanding is how I try to show support in most cases.

    I talk about this all the time. Look at what you're most firm in. You're simply not introspecting 'right'. You're flittering. Take a bunch of tests. Find the mean in the dichotomy. For example, for me, I'm strong in T and J. In other words, I've never got F, and only once or twice got anything other than P. The problem for me is E and S. And although I keep getting S, I understand why, and understand what the questions are actually trying to ask me; then I realise I'm answering them wrong.

    I've taken lots of tests, and INF are all consistent on those (those I've taken in the last year at least). The J/P axis can flip either way depending on my mood, so eventually i started ignoring those tests and evaluating it purely from self evaluation through looking at the cognitive processes and reading more books. Most of the time I'm fairly certain that I'm INFP based on the Fi/Ne interaction that is clearly visible when I examine my thinking, but I can see enough situations where I could be a confused version of some other type that I'm not willing to completely rule out those possibilities.

    Again, to clarify, while self doubt may have been the spark of this post...
    I'm most interested in getting perspective of HOW OTHERS SEE ME and then reconciling that with my own self perceptions.

    TenebrousReflection, this is rather simplistic if you have heard it, but there are four types of introverted 'teddybears.' INFPs are warm on the inside and outside. INFJs are warm on the inside and cold on the outside. (INTPs-cold/warm, INTJs cold/cold.) This doesn't ring true for everyone, but if some people see you as rather aloof, you may be an INFJ....

    I see you as INFP based on what you have written about yourself on this forum when talking about how you process/approach things.

    I voted INFP just because we seem to always question whether or not we are another type. (I am guilty of this on more than one occasion)
