Until recently I was so sure about my type, but lately after reading through so many threads comparing INFP's and INTP's I've been thinking I seem to identify more with INTP descriptions, so I think I may have mistyped myself. Right now I feel much more INTP than INFP, but if I really am an INTP, then there are some unresolved issues I need to figure out, some loose ends that don't seem to fit.
The main reason I've stayed INFP for so long is that when I look back at how I used to be as a child, I was much more emotional and temperamental. Actually, enneatype four probably would have described me pretty well. Since I was originally like that, I figured I was probably INFP originally and developed my Ti.
But now I've realized I had overlooked some other possibilities. I assumed that my emotional side from when I was a child was Fi, but what if it was really inferior Fe? There's also the possibility that it was Fi still in the process of developing (as an INTP).
If I am indeed an INTP, I wonder what could have caused me as a young child to develop Fi. Developing Ti makes more sense to me, because I had a reason to do that, but if I truly identify more with INTP, I have to rethink this and consider other possibilities about my past.
This page has a few of my posts where I answer some questions, comparing my answers to an INTP's and an INFP's: http://www.typologycentral.com/forum...my-type-2.html
I could really use some help determining whether I really am an INTP or if I am still an INFP. Any thoughts on this would be greatly appreciated!
