    @greenfairy

    alright:

    for my life, it's been a cycle of three different mentalities that lead in the same pattern.

    1) more open to experience, but also naive/immature compared to the others cycles

    2) the naivety/immaturity is replaced by a more cynical attitude; i feel that i'm much more aware of the world around me, specifically the social side; i have in the past found it much easier to climb "social ladders" while in this mindset and the climbing wasn't a conscious/"i want to do this" action, it was just something that precipitated naturally from this mindset.

    3) the 2nd was followed by depression and a general closing off from the social side of things, seeing them as having no real depth, almost like being 11 years old and realizing that my life is mimicking that of a 40 year old man who has worked so hard for a make believe reality of social constructs. and from this, it's almost like all three phases integrate for a short period and i feel much more like myself, like i'm not being pulled in any other direction but that the sense of direction is starting within and leading out.

    i see each as a general action needed in order to create a foundation for the next to work upon, in order so that the newest action can again create a foundation for the third, and at the end of the third, it's like all three perspectives have been formed into one. but at this point, i still have almost 0 life experience and so the cycle is needed again. at each stage, the mentality fits the over all schema, but this time there is more to work with since it's happened before--almost like going through stage 1 but at the advanced level of a 2nd degree. (what's interesting is that i've seen astrology stuff that indicated life cycles such as these; i'm not sure how much i buy into all of that, but then again, i can't say either way since i know so little about it).

    within these cycles, i don't think anyone would say that i'm a different person, but there are differences that are apparent. if someone were to only know me by a certain time frame and were then asked to MBTI-type me, and then to do the same with another time frame, i don't think they'd necessarily match (although, most people type by behavior so i doubt they'd ever get a good, long term consensus on anyone, which kind of defeats the purpose of me saying all of this if the jungian functions are so far ingrained and are actually such smaller parts of us that it is possible to not change type with a change in behavior over the years).

    so basically, what i see is the same pattern but just becoming more and more rich, more and more refined as i get older (rich and refined in regards to myself, not others). this is something that i try to pay attention to more so than anything else in the hopes of not repeating the same mistakes, or not letting myself get wrapped into a frame of mind that i've found non-helpful/detrimental in the past.

    *side note for clarification/i'm going to repeat myself : the naive/open mindset is almost like information gathering, the more aware/productive self the side that ventures out and creates mistakes to learn, the withdrawn part is the self-reflection and reconciliation of those mistakes so that i can take the multi-step process and combine it into one mini-life-lesson.

    ... i think .

    Allow me to illustrate:

    Post #203 (amongst others) is a good example of the opposite of INTP posting style.

    Hope this helps.

    (I still don't think it really matters, but seriously, don't tell us how great your Ti is and then come up with this shite, or you'll just be ripped to shreds. It's not that it's impossible for an INFP to have well-developed Ti (see OrangeAppled for a good example) it's just that you're not one of them.)
    Oh I'm not saying my Ti is great. My Fi isn't that great either, I assure you. Maybe I make value based assumptions, or live my life in a vaguely Fi way, but I'm really not great at it. I'm really bad at being sensitive and comforting. And every time ethics and morality comes up I don't really have the patience to argue about it, and I just end up saying it's all relative and not really relevant. Probably my Ni or Ne is. I don't know that any of my functions could be described as great. Both my Fe and Te are effing terrible at times. My Si misremembers things. My Se is really good at identifying beautiful things, but sucks at paying attention to things I need to pay attention to. It's more the combination of them that gives me moments of greatness.

    Consider the processes to be coping strategies. Your dom function is your lead strategy where the aux is to supplement the dom. In your case it's Fi or internal values with subjective emotional responses attuned to internal values. Ne bounces around to augment and in your response to me, your Ne has grabbed a boatload of shit and tied it all together to bring about your above synthesis of what I've stated. Uncertain if you can see the difference between what I've previously stated and your perception of what was stated.
    I'm just not very aware of my personal subjective values and feelings. Can you point out to me specific instances of these affecting my rationales? I guess you could point to my beliefs about embracing the gender binary as being useful if it makes you feel good. But I didn't think that way of thinking made up most of my rationales in every subject. I tend to discuss feeling type subjects on here, so of course feeling is relevant. I use symbolism and categorization a lot. And I haven't really expressed much emotional response in my time on here. It may look like it, but it's usually just sarcasm or enthusiasm. I don't really understand Fi, as people just say it has to do with values and feelings and I think values are relative, morals are largely irrelevant, and feelings aren't usually important. So from my own perspective I can hardly conclude I'm Fi dominant unless we use more criteria.

    I mean, there are things I like and things I care about, but this is true of everyone. I don't like caring all the time. It's tiring. So most of the time I avoid it and just do things I like with people and things I like. And I think about things.

    You're going to hate to hear this, but I'll say it anyway.

    I've read through this thread (yes, the entire thing) and am pretty much convinced you're NOT an INTP. I'm having a very hard time believing you are a Ti-dominant... despite how well you think le INTP descriptions fit you. I'm not saying that you aren't the things the INTP descriptions make you out to be (i.e. a rational person), but IMO comparing oneself to generalized descriptions on the interwebs to see if any of them "fit" isn't the best way to go about typing yourself.

    Also, you seem to have a very strange (read: IMO inaccurate and biased) perception of F-ness. For one thing, a "Feeling" preference doesn't automatically make one illogical/irrational/easily swayed by emotions. That's F-stereotyping for you. Additionally, I'm guessing that you don't understand the cognitive functions very well. You may have a surface-level understanding of them, but not an in-depth one, IMO.

    FYI, my guess on your type would be INFP. I think I see Fi and Te in you.

    I don't mean to offend you at all with this post, and would be interested in talking this out w/you--that is, if you're interested.

    Why does it seem to bother you so much for anyone to think you may be a F?

    This isn't an accusation, btw, but an attempt at an answer in order to get more data. When someone says any type with the letter F in it, what's your first thought regarding why it bothers you? Please be honest.

    You misuse logic horribly. It's genuinely painful to read.

    Do you have OCD? You mentioned being obsessed with this stuff (which doesn't seem like an exaggeration). Sometimes you come across a bit manic. If you have any kind of mental disorder, type becomes irrelevant, and can even be unhelpful.

    And another great example of not being a t type. This seems to be coming quite the pattern.
