    Default Am I INFJ or INTJ?

    So I made the mistake of taking a couple of tests earlier from sites I usually respect and several times I got INTJ and even ENFJ at one point. For the longest time however, I've identified as INFJ.

    Part of my confusion is I'm trying to determine if I prefer Fe/Fi and Te/Ti. I'm pretty clear on Ni and Se.

    So how do I clear this up?

    Please don't trust the tests--even the official one claims to be correct only 70% of the time. Going by cognitive functions is, in my opinion, the only way to get it right.

    Can I ask how old you are?

    The main difference between INFJs and INTJs is that INFJs (usually) make decisions/see the world through values and the human element more than they do looking at things more impersonally. INTJs are the opposite. One thing I have to add, though, is that being an INFJ doesn't mean you can't see things impersonally or have a strong tendency toward logic (after all, we do have NiTi); it's about what your primary focus is.

    As for the different cognitive functions, try this website: http://www.cognitiveprocesses.com/

    INFJs play people chess. INTJs are utterly mystified by people.

    Glad to clear that up for ya.

    Really? Then what about the INTJ who scored Ti highest on a function test? What about the fact that this test I keep seeing posted here can't even apply the formula correctly, such that NeTi comes out as INTP?

    What's up with the X's? Does INTX mean INTP/J? Since when are they about world domination?
