I am new to this forum, but have been interested in and studying MBTI and Jungian functions since I was a teen. I believe I have strongly developed Fe and am either ISFJ or INFJ. I am certain that I am an introvert. I need LARGE quantities of time alone, in my own space, doing my own thing. But everything I've learned at this point feels like it's just swimming around in my head. I can see good arguments for either side. If you're interested in helping me type myself, please keep reading, and thanks in advance either way.
I have strong feelings and can be romantic, but not in a traditional or stereotypical way. I also don't have premonitions about the future. What I AM good at is inferring things based on limited information, or reading between the lines. I get a lot of "How did you know that?" from friends. I wonder sometimes why people can't seem to get along with each other. I see people being put off by others' surface behaviors and don't know why they can't see through to the motivation behind it and interact with people on that level instead. I live very much in my head and my moods can be based on nothing at all in the real world. When I was younger, I used to hear "You're so weird," a lot. I still hear it, but mostly in a good way. I used to be very shy, but am now pretty friendly and chatty, and most people accept me for who I am, and just roll their eyes at my weirdness.
Here's where it gets confusing. I sometimes wonder if I am an Si user. I had a difficult childhood and spend a lot of time thinking about it and how it has made me who I am. And I often find myself having the feeling of actually re-experiencing anger or embarrassment from a long time ago. I can have a very good memory of what someone said or did a long time ago, though I am sometimes unclear on the order in which things happened. As a child, I trusted adults and believed, for the most part, in doing as I was told. I did not like to break rules or get in trouble-- but I often insisted on knowing the rationale behind rules.
When it comes to learning, I definitely need to see an endpoint before I can make sense of individual steps. That is, I need to know where I'm aiming to end up before I can develop a process for getting there. However, I can be rather slow past a certain initial understanding of new information. I understand new things, up to a point, quickly enough to become incredibly frustrated and discouraged when I stop understanding and actually have to do the grunt work.
I'm happy to provide other information, though it seems I've already written quite a lot! Thanks if you've gotten this far.
