    Default Typing Request for My Fiance

    Okay, so what I’d like from you guys and the reason I’ll be posting today is because I’m interested in typing my fiancé. So, I'm not great with this sort of thing (I know enough to say I'm an INTP) but I'm going to attempt to describe her in the best terms I can and hopefully get the assistance of people more insightful than myself.

    Without further adieu, let's get down to business.

    I'm going to start by saying that I'm pretty much 100% sure about her being an IxFJ but again I won't claim to be any kind of authority on this sort of thing but at least if my description is completely off from any variation of that then it's most likely my description that needs improving (in which case I apologize for wasting your time from the get-go).

    So I suppose I can start with her more positive attributes (positive being a subjective term for things I like most about her versus other things I still like, but not as much). She is most definitely an intelligent and thoughtful person. Not in the general or obvious sense but in the 'she can sit around for long periods of time just to think' sort of way. I wouldn't say this only applies to popular subjects either but rather she thinks about all aspects of life in a similar fashion often trying out various different perspectives and taking new opinions into consideration all the time. With a very malleable worldview but on founded mostly on logic she seems to have no issue looking at things through the thought processes of others and using this to broaden and deepen her own ideas. I've always loved and admired this about her since I've fairly poor at recognizing the benefits or positives in beliefs contrary to my own (not in a devaluing way though).

    She's most certainly introverted as I am, preferring to have only a couple close friends but being heavily invested in those few relationships on a positive and emotionally trust-founded way. That said, she does have trouble being around large groups of people and doesn't tend to open up around most people but given her analytical nature loves learning about them and about the things that make them unique. Emotional connections and support mean a lot to her and she takes this connection very seriously when it comes to people she trusts. She doesn't tend to work well with any kind of chaos and is always seeking a certain level of stability and tranquility in her life and stress very easily accumulates when things aren't quite how she needs them to be. Like right now we're apart because I'm back home earning money so we can move in together and not having me there is causing both of us a lot of undue stress which gets into every other aspect of her life and acts as to make all the other stresses much more difficult to deal with in an individual sense.

    She very much values her sense of intelligence and independence but can often be plagued with doubt about these things (such as feeling like a close relationship is making her too dependent or that being around someone who is also intelligent makes her feel unintelligent). She's definitely an organized person and loves making plans and plotting and generally thinking about the future. This also translates well into short term planning and having things planned down to the minute and successfully pulled off has a sense of comfort for her. Negatively this attests to a perfectionism that affects most of the things she does (but doesn't usually apply to others nearly as strictly) and having anything less than ideal can sometimes be upsetting. She's definitely the type to consider the consequences of every action before getting into doing anything and she frets often and seriously about how things can or might go wrong.

    That's about all I can come up with at the moment, but there's probably a lot more I can say. If anyone needs any clarification on anything or can think of other questions I could answer about her I'll definitely answer. I appreciate your patience in this matter and eagerly await your reponses!

    I do appreciate your prompt opinion, I'd also like to know why you think so! And I'd add that to anyone who posts next, I'd like to know what out of what I said you get that opinion from. Thanks again.

    I see Ti, Ni, Fe, not necessarily in that order. That gives you INFJ, or possibly ISTP with a weak Se (and strong Fe). INFJ seems much more likely from the overall description, though (ex: focusing on emotional support)

    I do not think she is INFP at all. Nearly everything you posted screams "not Fi".

    I have to apologize for my ignorance, but as I said I'm a bit of a novice at all this. I'm not asking for a lesson or anything but if you could explain where you see these functions, I can look up their meanings on my own so a bit more context would be appreciated (also if you think any more information would helpful I'd be happy to give it)

    Not type related
    Not in the general or obvious sense but in the 'she can sit around for long periods of time just to think' sort of way.
    Could be Ni, Ti, Ne

    I wouldn't say this only applies to popular subjects either but rather she thinks about all aspects of life in a similar fashion often trying out various different perspectives and taking new opinions into consideration all the time.
    Ni

    With a very malleable worldview but on founded mostly on logic
    Ti, perhaps Te

    she seems to have no issue looking at things through the thought processes of others and using this to broaden and deepen her own ideas.
    Ni, Fe, xNFJ in general

    That said, she does have trouble being around large groups of people and doesn't tend to open up around most people but given her analytical nature loves learning about them and about the things that make them unique.
    Ti, Fe, perhaps Fi

    Emotional connections and support mean a lot to her and she takes this connection very seriously when it comes to people she trusts.

    Don't think this is type related. Some would say J in general, but I would disagree.

    She very much values her sense of intelligence and independence
    Ti

    but can often be plagued with doubt about these things (such as feeling like a close relationship is making her too dependent or that being around someone who is also intelligent makes her feel unintelligent).
    Not type related IMO

    She's definitely an organized person and loves making plans and plotting and generally thinking about the future. This also translates well into short term planning and having things planned down to the minute and successfully pulled off has a sense of comfort for her.
    Te, Ni

    Negatively this attests to a perfectionism that affects most of the things she does (but doesn't usually apply to others nearly as strictly) and having anything less than ideal can sometimes be upsetting.
    Not type related IMO

    She's definitely the type to consider the consequences of every action before getting into doing anything and she frets often and seriously about how things can or might go wrong.
    First part Ti, second part Ni

    Hope that helps. My opinions only, and I'm not even close to an expert. Others may disagree.

    There's lots of threads around here on the various functions, some worse (or more drama filled) than others. Most people here aren't "experts", although you could say "hobbyist".

    I think ISFJ for now. Can you give more info about how she thinks?

    Any function with an introverted attitude. The second bolded sounds most like Fe or Ne but it can fit into Ni too, I think.

    With a very malleable worldview but on founded mostly on logic she seems to have no issue looking at things through the thought processes of others and using this to broaden and deepen her own ideas.
    Ti and Fe, or N.

    That said, she does have trouble being around large groups of people and doesn't tend to open up around most people but given her analytical nature loves learning about them and about the things that make them unique. Emotional connections and support mean a lot to her and she takes this connection very seriously when it comes to people she trusts.
    Ti and Fe once more.

    She doesn't tend to work well with any kind of chaos and is always seeking a certain level of stability and tranquility in her life and stress very easily accumulates when things aren't quite how she needs them to be.
    Pi, but it sounds especially like primary Si and inferior Ne.

    She's definitely an organized person and loves making plans and plotting and generally thinking about the future. This also translates well into short term planning and having things planned down to the minute and successfully pulled off has a sense of comfort for her. Negatively this attests to a perfectionism that affects most of the things she does (but doesn't usually apply to others nearly as strictly) and having anything less than ideal can sometimes be upsetting.
    IxxJs tend to be long-range thinkers who thrive on a certain measure of control and certainty. Perfectionism is said to be common in all of them, most visibly in IxFJs, but IxTJs tend to be perfectionist too.

    She's definitely the type to consider the consequences of every action before getting into doing anything and she frets often and seriously about how things can or might go wrong.
    IxxJs tend to be cautious and very mindful of effect and consequence. The (fretting) eye for negative possibilities / scenarios sounds like inferior Ne.

    That's about all I can come up with at the moment, but there's probably a lot more I can say. If anyone needs any clarification on anything or can think of other questions I could answer about her I'll definitely answer. I appreciate your patience in this matter and eagerly await your reponses!
    I mentioned it up there already, but: Can you give more info about how she thinks?

    Disclaimer: I'm not an expert either. Take whatever I say with a grain of salt

    If you could give an example of what you mean by 'how she thinks' I think I could help more. I'm not her so that could be a difficult question for me to answer in the first place but I'll do my best.


    EDIT: I guess I could say that she's a little spacey and likes working with the theoretical, hypothetical (thought experiments) and abstract ideas. She's kind of clumsy (as am I) and not really observant about her physical surroundings (when it doesn't involve people watching). She definitely looks for deeper meanings behind images and ideas and is rarely okay accepting the way things seem on the surface.

    EDIT EDIT: I asked about this and she gave me an example: "the other day i was on a forum and saw an avatar that was just a black and white picture of a leaf but the leaf had a tear on one side. i started thinking about why that person used that avatar and i thought how i love picking up pretty leaves and admiring them but then i started thinking how it could represent people and how we're expected to be a certain way and those of us with tears are discarded and thought less of because we're not perfect just like the leaves and i cried"

    ex:

    1) How does she view reality?

    2) What is she most mentally energized by? What is she most mentally drained by?

    3) What are her biggest priorities? (i.e. overarching logical consistency, the materialization of a special plan or vision, certainty...?)

    4) In general, what does she fear, dread, or reject the most? (i.e. unpredictability, lack of clarity, lack of mental or moral autonomy, impersonal uniformity...?)

    5) When she comes across a new concept or idea, what does she do to help herself understand it? What is her primary method of problem-solving?

    6) Does she build new perspectives from facts or does she derive facts from new perspectives?

    7) Is her focus more personal or more impersonal? More technical or more general? How much does she value specificity?

    8) What line of thought does she most often resort to under stress?

    And anything else that you can think of. Everything is helpful!

    You can see my edits in the previous posts for a small idea I suppose. I'll handle this a little later, but I thank you for it in advance! This should help a lot I think.
