    Haha, more that you're one of the most open people I've spoken to. Not personally open, I mean, but open as in shying away from definites, and questioning quite a bit. In my experience, INTJs seem to be more comfortably with certainty, and certainty is their goal, whereas you seem very open and accepting, maybe even more comfortably, with uncertainties and shades of gray.

    I think you're INTP. I don't see much evidence to the contrary.

    Bumping this because, well, the title says it all, really. And I want to distract myself.

    INTP, ISTP and INTJ are still the most likely options.

    The thread about the difference between INTPs and INTJs has confused me a little. According to that thread, I'm a bit J-ish. I don't think I have much Ni, but maybe I don't understand what Ni is.

    I suspect I have good S, but I suspect not Se - more likely Si, I think. It's an effort to notice things in the world around me, even when they're pointed out. But again, it's possible I don't particularly understand Se well.

    In the cognitive processes test, I tend to score highest in Ti, followed by Ne, Te and Ni, FWIW.

    Nothing would have ever made me question INTP on my own but since you have a thread n all I guess I gots to. What I would ask is what was your personality like when you were a child, you donít have to answer and you may not know but the appearance of INTP may have been a way of avoiding confrontation for you as they're/we're generally laid back and unphased by things happening around them/us.

    I seeeeeriously struggle to see you as INTJ based on how freely you write though.

    Hmm, I'm a little confused by this. Do you mean appearance or what's going on internally?

    This made me smile, given these two earlier responses:

    Not sure if that means I'm a bit more open now than back then (I started this thread before you joined TypoC and INTPc, IIRC) or whether you're seeing something different to Edahn and Ivy. (they're both somewhat familiar with my posts etc on INTPc)

    You seem like an INTP. Your posts have the clarity of thought I would expect from a Ti dominant, and you also think quite fluidly and express in an abstract way. I remember also some posts where you used that INTP wit based on language play. It was a thread about book titles for posters or something over at INTPc. I remember it because your posts contained the most clever wit of any of them.

    Either INTP or INFJ.

    Thanks toonia. I've been thinking I'm Ti-dominant, but then got confused about some J-ish tendencies I've noticed here and there.

    Yeah, I remember that thread. It was 'Shortest books ever written by INTPc members' - that was fun. I tend to feel unwitty most of the time, though. It's a concious effort to switch it on. I often feel like I'm less playful than some of the stronger N's on INTPc.

    Ya know, that's the first time NF has ever come up as a suggestion (if there's any doubt it's usually that I'm S not N or J not P). Can I ask what's behind that? I'm curious. I have noticed your posts resonate a lot with me, though, so maybe there's some similarity there.

    I wonder if you also have strong Ni, and that's the reason for the INTJ suggestions. When someone is strongly introverted, I sometimes wonder if they develop more of the introverted versions of the functions. Since INTP is Ti-Ne, maybe you have that, but also strong Ni, so that you get some Ti-Ni blending as well?

    I think I have strong Si. Maybe. I have a really good memory for details if it's something that interests me (and many things interest me), in that I only have to hear it once or twice and it's there long term. I also remember stuff like shop opening hours for weekends, weekdays and the weird stuff that happens around Xmas time, again with no effort. So, I'm thinking Ti-Si?

    tbh, I don't have a good handle on what Ni is. There are a few things that happen in my mind that feel Ni-ish (moments of deep meaning that permanently shift how I see the world or seeing what I need to do internally to change my inner world of me) but I'm not sure if I use it in day to day stuff. Ni is confusing...
