    Well, I never said I thought I was an INFP!

    And I'm just commenting, no worries, INTP / INFP, you're still a (magic) sponge to me.

    That's a very broad question, which needs a broad answer.
    Sociology, psychology, government and politics. That kind of thing.
    History and anthropology are good, too.



    I play them down when I'm around people(except for the few circumstances when I want them to know I'm really pissed-off). I generally withdraw into myself and deliberate on my feelings and their cause, for possibly even hours at a time. It's a combination of problem solving and trying to center myself.
    I occasionally have to talk to people about them, but I'm very selective.
    INTP, based on interests, the way you deal and approach your feelings, and your description of that process. Remember that MBTI is a classification system that depends on your description of yourself. Your description of yourself can vary. The biggest mistake I think people make (and not everyone agrees, but whatever, they're wrong) is that people actually come in 16 discrete flavors. There is no such thing. Your personality is constantly in flux. Sometimes, when you're tapped into Ti, you'll act like an INTP; when you're tapped into your Fi, INFP. There's no rule that says you can't be balanced. In the end, your type is just a symbol for your general tendencies, so I wouldn't be too worried about 1) counterexamples and 2) getting it perfectly right.

    An INTP I think would be far more uncomfortable cutting off the "why" question than an INFP would in the area of emotion and relationship. They will not simply base something on what they believe is most logical, they will NEED to find the hard logic or they will be very uncomforable.
    Absolutely agree.

    Edit: Sorry for the two posts... just answering as I read through.

    I agree with this.

    So, Magic... would you be willing to say that you're an INTP with INFP-ish tendencies and leave it at that?

    I'd even be willing to say that I'm an INTP. I just wanted to know what you all saw in me.

    *lol*. I answered this before. A thorny, whimsical little black puppy with it's back turned to everyone and sitting in the corner, casting woeful backward glances.

    I know. Ok. I shall cease to be irritating.

    INTP for me all the way. Close F, that's all, but T is the default.

    Not 100% accurate. I search for flaws in perfection, criticize people for being stupid AND search for something that makes me feel needed. And I'd think the latter is something quite a few INTPs do as well, consciously or not. (Especially those with high Fi.) So the difference lies more in which of those gets the higher priority when they're mutually exclusive. I will normally keep looking for ways to get both (I never really accept that they're mutually exclusive before I've made a lot of effort to reconcile them), but will accept flaws in perfection and stupidity if there's no way to get it all. An INTP will rarely accept stupidity or imperfection in order to be needed. Better to maintain integrity and see if people won't see the need for that eventually.

    True, but feeling used is an immature tendency that most mature, healthy INFPs don't exhibit much. I give to bind some people to me, but more often I do it simply to feel good. Don't want to bind too many people to me... it's restricting and draining.

    Hm... not everyone. I agree it's ingrained in us, but we learn to accept that it's impossible to be happy if happiness depends on everyone being happy. So we choose carefully who we need to be ok.

    The expectation of an INTP is always that they are harsher and always in the right, seeking a perfection of system and being. That is the absoluteness of T.
    Sounds true.

    I don't see how this follows. Though I do see the relativeness in most things, I also think it's possible to get logic and values in sync and strive towards that ideal. Are you saying idealists are the ones who see the relativeness and the rationals are the ones who see the ideals?

    INTPs would be the same in almost all situations. The INFP could flip-flop a lot more. I think you exhibit that constancy (or stubborness ) of an INTP.
    True dat!
