I've had myself convinced that I fit the INTP description best in most cases. However, whenever I read a breakdown of the functions, it doesn't seem to agree with the way I use my functions or even how I perceive my Ti.
I came across this definition of Ni in Lenore Thomson's Exegesis Wiki:
This fits more with what might be my dominant function.Introverted Intuition is an attitude of "seeing through" the distortion that any interpretation creates, to see the underlying reality. It's a left-brain attitude in that it's sign- and symbol-oriented: attempting to grasp the system of interpretation that makes any particular way of representing reality work, as a prerequisite for using that system. From an Ni ego-state, you want to understand the assumptions of a system of representation before you use the system, so that you can use it with true freedom--including the freedom to use the built-in interpretations in ways that violate those assumptions.
I have determined my function order to be:
So, does this point to INTP or INTJ?
Please excuse my English if there are any faults since I am not a native speaker.
