I'll try to give a brief overture of my MBTI history and then I'll tell you my concerns about it, my objections, etc. After that, you can feel free to comment, posit what you believe my type to be, interrogate me, and so forth; I am new here, by the way.
My first time taking the test, I scored as an INTP. This is what I score 99% of the time, although T is usually only ahead of F by 5-10%. When I first began taking the test, I was definitively an INTP as I scored highly on each of those traits so there was not a lot of margin for contention between certain traits or two temperaments.
After taking the time to analyze the questions more closely, I have started taking the test again while answering the questions more honestly and I noticed a significant increase in F. Before, I was scoring as high as 70% on T, but now I am threatening to break even. Honesty matters, it would seem.
So, I take the test today and T/F are split perfectly. Awesome. For now, I think it is more reasonable to type myself "INxP" rather than pigeonhole myself into one of the Nx camps.
Personally, I feel I am a rather emotional INTP. This may sound like an oxymoron, but allow me to explain. First of all, compare INTP traits to INFP traits. The INTP traits describe me exceptionally well and plenty of people that know me well in real life were willing to corroborate this.
Likewise, INFP traits describe me well but not as well. Frankly, the INFP traits seem like they would form a very fickle and sensitive person; one whom is likely to easily start crying and curling into a ball. While it is arguable that I am somewhat sensitive, I cry maybe five to ten times a year? Maybe that's a bad range, but that's what I'm thinking.
If it helps, I'll give you guys some of my main interests: philosophy, neuroscience, poetry, literature, music (mainly grounded in '90s hip-hop and technical metal), physics. When I'm talking to people, I love one-on-one, candid discussions. Even If I intellectually outweigh the person, I will gladly talk to them for as long as they please if they are honest, sincere, and open. Of course, intelligence helps but intelligence without sincerity tends to lose my interest or make me turn the conversation into a game of "dispute everything/accept nothing." I like to wryly argue and play devil's advocate when I do decide to talk to people. That being said, I am more than willing to listen to people that I feel I can learn something from.
Also worth noting: I am currently dating an ISFJ that I had a long-time crush on, and I cannot get enough of her physical affection. I love even the slightest touching with her, and cuddling with her is inexplicably wonderful. What up, though.
I tend to dislike: art, auto mechanics, competition, being around loud noise, being around aggressive people I do not know well/have preexisting relations with, confrontation, approaching people. I am not very good at small talk and when I try to do it, I am often shunned or perceived as flippant and unaware (evident in people's reactions). This is where I derive the "detachment" part of being an INTP.
So, that wraps up my navel-gazing, unwelcome noob of a tl;dr. Hopefully this wasn't too offensive. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
