I have been confused about my type for months now. For a long time I thought I was INFJ, but recently I feel I have changed a lot and have jumped back and forth between INFJ, INTJ, INFP and INTP.
I looked at each individual function and am still confused. I'm not sure if it's more that I don't understand the functions, or I really can't decide which ones apply to me. I have the most trouble with Fe, Fi, Te and Ti.
I am pretty certain on the I and N, but I will try to include details about each letter anyway.
I and E
-I highly value privacy
-I don't hate talking to people or anything, but feel that most people I don't feel a connection with. When I talk to people, I want to see them paying full attention to me or I feel hurt. I don't want to talk to anybody if they don't want to talk to me.
-I feel small talk is superficial. I can manage to do it, but it took me a long time to learn and I don't enjoy it. I still don't understand the purpose of it.
-I like to feel included in a group.
-I keep to myself most of the time, but if I have a problem with someone or something I push myself to be assertive. I can't stand being used, but sometimes I automatically give in to people's demands just to be polite and once I realized what I've done I get angry at myself. (maybe this is more T/F?)
S and N
-I'm pretty sure S is my weakest function.
-I'm really, uh, spacey....often, it takes me a minute to realize what somebody is telling me...sometimes I don't realize they are talking at all because I am thinking so much.
-I suck at mechanical tasks. I get embarrassed when somebody is giving me oral directions because I have difficulty following them, even if the task is really simple.
-As said, I'm spacey and it can take me months to really notice something like a picture on the wall. I don't pay attention to small physical details in my surroundings because I don't find them important.
-I have always been introspective and philosophical. I enjoy reading because I like to figure out the psychology of each character and think about the author's intentions.
-I get paranoid/weird feelings about random stuff and people
T and F
-I don't cry easily. I think I'm more likely to cry over a song than a movie.
-I feel kind of void of emotions compared to other people--at least about certain things. I can watch a sad movie where somebody dies or whatever and the whole theater will be crying and I hardly feel moved at all. It just feels forced. People see/hear about death all the time, in the movies, in the news etc. I just don't understand, how you can get so emotional about it, when it's the same situation over and over. Of course, I understand getting upset over the death of a close family member/friend, just not about complete strangers or fictional characters.
-However, I get sensitive about things people don't understand or don't notice. I get worried about random strangers.
-I can't stand to see people be misunderstood, especially when they had good intentions.
-I always worry I'm being annoying.
-I would say I value justice over mercy.
-I get so irritated when people are submissive. UGH...weakness isn't cute, okay? What is the point of having your own opinion if you are just going to agree with everyone else?
-I highly enjoy intellectual discussion.
-I have always done better in school than with personal relationships. I spent most of my life without friends.
-I do kind of value personal relationships, but I really just need a couple of people to speak my thoughts to so I don't go crazy. For the most part, I'm more interested in doing my own thing/research.
-When I become interested in something, I become very passionate. I will research and analyze that thing to death. When somebody criticizes my interests, I take it personally.
-I don't get romantic relationships. At all.
-I get somewhat easily flustered when talking to people I don't know well. (I?)
P and J
-Being late to an event or not meeting a deadline causes me great distress.
-I'm a perfectionist
-I like having a schedule, but I'm not always good at following it
-When assigned a project, I automatically take it apart and plan when and how I will complete it. Although I don't always end up following these plans >_>
-I'm always anxious/worried about the future
-I procrastinate like hell
-Very indecisive. When I go to restaurant it takes me the longest time to pick out my food, and even my P friends get irritated xD
But believe me, I do not like bouncing back and forth between ideas. I long to make a plan for my life and stick to it.
-I really don't like taking chances.
-I think my friends tend to think I'm more laid back. I kind of have a "fuck that" attitude.
Other (things I'm not sure are relevant but might be interesting and things I don't know what category to put them in)
-I'm cynical and suspicious of other people's motives.
-I value sincerity and clarity
-I carefully planned this post in my head before typing it up xD
-I notice when I look people in the eye, especially strangers, they seem freaked out and look away. I think this might be the INTJ/INFJ "death stare"
-Most think I'm very quite, but I become very animated sometimes with close friends. When I make jokes, I tend to be very dramatic and obnoxious. Besides this, I like sarcasm and dry humor
I think I'm probably INTJ or INFJ, but I consider INTP and INFP as well.
Oh my God I typed so much I'm sorry
